Predictable: 'Islamophobia' screamer a regular visitor at the White HouseIslamophobia' when she was allegedly denied a closed can of Diet Coke on a United Airlines flight, is a regular visitor at the Obama White House for Ramadan dinners (Hat Tip: Jack W).
Ahmad, who is also a regular Ramadan dinner guest of President Obama, asked the United Airlines flight attendant if she could have an unopened can of Diet Coke. She flies enough to know that airlines are running concessions on the cheap, and if you get a soda for free, you’re not getting the whole thing. But when the attendant told her she couldn’t have an unopened can, she flipped her headscarf.
According to CNN, who evidently is soaking up all the allegedly bigoted tidbits of this story, the attendant informed Ahmad that they are “unauthorized to give unopened cans to people because they may use it as a weapon on the plane.” The passenger let the employee know that she felt she was being discriminated against, because the passenger across the aisle was given a full, unopened can of beer.
That’s when things started to get really interesting. Not taking into consideration that the guy with a beer paid an astronomical amount for that in-flight brew and her cola was on the house, Ahmad called on the support of other flyers. She ask if they had seen what just happened, insinuating she was being targeted as a terrorist.
According to her Facebook post, the guy with a beer got in her face and said, “You Muslim, you need to shut the f— up.”
This is if we’re to believe a word this woman has to say on the matter with no witnesses or cell phone footage to support her claim of the conversation. “I felt the hate in his voice and his raging eyes,” Ahmad wrote on Facebook while the plane was still in flight. “I can’t help but cry … because I thought people would defend me and say something. Some people just shook their heads in dismay.”Boo. Hoo. I guess I'm not the only one who thinks she's lying. It would be interesting if the guy who bought the beer would come forward.
And please don't tell me she's going to start flying American between Chicago and Washington. I flew that route a couple of weeks ago, and despite my next-to-top-tier elite status was number 11 of 24 for an upgrade....
