His Majesty is only surprised that we haven’t seen more of this and sooner too (link thanks to LC & IB Charles J.)

British holidaymakers staged an unprecedented mutiny - refusing to allow their flight to take off until two men they feared were terrorists were forcibly removed.

The extraordinary scenes happened after some of the 150 passengers on a Malaga-Manchester flight overheard two men of Asian appearance apparently talking Arabic.

One of these days, we really want to find out what it is with the British MSM and their fetish about saying “Asian” instead of the proper “Middle Eastern.”

Passengers told cabin crew they feared for their safety and demanded police action. Some stormed off the Monarch Airlines Airbus A320 minutes before it was due to leave the Costa del Sol at 3am. Others waiting for Flight ZB 613 in the departure lounge refused to board it.

And why not? After 9/11 and the numerous attempts since by Islamic males between the ages of 18 and 40 to board and blow up planes, not to mention the recently foiled massive terror plot, you’d be stark raving bonkers if your Spidey Sense wasn’t tingling in such a situation.

Passengers noticed that, despite the heat, the pair were wearing leather jackets and thick jumpers and were regularly checking their watches.

Nothing suspicious there, right?

The incident fuels the row over airport security following the arrest of more than 20 people allegedly planning the suicide-bombing of transatlantic jets from the UK to America. It comes amid growing demands for passenger-profiling and selective security checks.

It also raised fears that more travellers will take the law into their own hands - effectively conducting their own ‘passenger profiles’.

“Take the law into their own hands?”

Is there a law saying that you have to board a plane if you’ve bought a ticket for it? Interesting.

Of course, the useless empty suits of the Nanny State aren’t about to let the plebes teach them anything and are, instead, huffing and puffing indignantly:

Patrick Mercer, the Tory Homeland Security spokesman, said last night: “This is a victory for terrorists. These people on the flight have been terrorised into behaving irrationally.

“For those unfortunate two men to be victimised because of the colour of their skin is just nonsense.”

They weren’t victimized because of the color of their skin, as a matter of fact it’s hard to claim that they were “victimized” at all, seeing as how they were put up for the night in a hotel at airline expense and flown home on the next flight.

Any inconvenience to them was solely due to the fact that blathering buttweasels like yourself have spent the last five years doing absolutely NOTHING to convince the general public that you value their safety higher than the tender sensibilities of an easily identifiable group of people that has, at last count, been responsible for 5,620 terrorist attacks since 9/11/2001.

And spare us the “victory for terrorists” pablum, you pompous prick, particularly seeing as how it is you politicians who’ve been bending over and grabbing ankles every single time Islamic fundamentalists have as much as frowned in your general direction for fear of being seen as politically incorrect.

If we, the general public, see no reason to believe that you take our safety and wellbeing seriously, and G-d knows that there is no reason to believe that after five years of you playing Russian Roulette with our lives, then we’ll just have to take care of matters ourselves.

But hey, Patrick, if you feel so farkin’ strongly about it, then why don’t you make sure to place your own lardy arse and/or members of your family on every flight carrying unusually dressed Muslims behaving suspiciously?

Those two might very well have been perfectly innocent, but how can you be sure when the only thing you know for certain is that nobody anywhere has bothered to check them out? One mustn’t risk offending anybody, after all, even if tippy-toeing around the obvious truth leads to hundreds or thousands of dead civilians.

If you bureaucrappic clapweasels would start doing your jobs, then perhaps the rest of us wouldn’t feel obliged to do them for you.

    That’s funny! I had entertained that notion before. Glad to see people are getting the guts to just do it!

    Oh … First, first, first … neener, neener!

    Well now isn’t this just hilarious as hell?!?!

    Note the Brits using the word, “asian” so as not to actually describe the towel heads as towel heads… Hilarious!

    Just how idiotic and sniveling was the following?

    Patrick Mercer, the Tory Homeland Security spokesman, said last night: “This is a victory for terrorists. These people on the flight have been terrorised into behaving irrationally.

    “For those unfortunate two men to be victimised because of the colour of their skin is just nonsense.

    Geez! How do these clowns ever expect to get over on the terrorists with inane comments and a cowardly attitude that Mercer displays?

    Most British JERM’s are ethinc Pakistani rather than ethnic Arabs, so “Asian” could simply be correct.

    Mebbe my sense of humor has been spoiled today, much like the food in my fridge FOR THE SECOND FUCKING TIME IN A MONTH after losing power FOUR FUCKING TIMES TODAY, but what the fuck is with the “Ohohohoh, Mr. Kotter, I’m first, I’m first, I’m first!!!” horseshit I see on the blogs I get my news from??

    Did I not get the memo that it’s cool to be the “FIRST!!” to make a reply to a post about a blazingly obvious case of common sense??

    (Better to be over-cautious than a grease spot on the side of a building, or am I mistaken??)

    Or is it that I’m too old (42 y/o) to understand how a Gen XYZABCMTV mind works???

    Does anybody give a tin shit about who makes the first response to a post other than the “FIRST!!-ER”?? Is it a badge of honor that you sit around and refresh stack of different windows every 15-30 seconds, each with a different site in it, waiting for a new post to which you can jump on like a shark on chum just to be “FIRST!!”??

    I expect a notice in the mail in the next month or two from AmerenUE telling me that they’ve jacked my rates to pay for all the OT their overpaid flunkies put in to do their fucking jobs that 75% of the time involves sitting around drinking coffee waiting for something to fuck up (and to cover the cost of replacing the dam that collasped up around Tom Sauk Mountain that they should have insurance to cover).

    But when I send them pix and an itemized price statement of the $500 worth of food I’ve had to pitch in the last month, I fully expect them to tell me, “Fuck you, pay me or sit in the dark!!”

    Kwongdzu, I’m not dumping on you in particular, but your’s was the post that pulled the trigger on this rant, and now that I’ve vented my excess steam, I have to take these bags of trash that were yummy steaks, chops, eggs, veggies, jellies, sauces, dressings, pizzas, TV dinners, deli meats, and cheese (read:FOOD) 24 hrs. ago out to the dumpster.

    And to get back on topic, to para-phrase AnimalMother from Full Metal Jacket, “All fucking Sand-Niggers (acting like terrorists (blending two posts into one)) must fucking hang!!”

    And if that last sentence offended you…

    Man up, Nancy and grow a thicker skin, because it don’t matter if you’re white, black, red, yellow, or fucking polka-dotted, they’ve called you worse and want to see you and your loved ones FUCKING DEAD!!!

    It’s anazing how well organized and in order things can look in preview (especially when you’re smashed), but when you see them posted, you have to slam your head into the desktop, saying to yourself, “How the hell did I do that?!?!”

    Better to be over-cautious than a grease spot on the side of a building, or am I mistaken??

    …should have come after…

    (blending two posts into one)

    Sorry about that…

    I used to think the same thing, MoMan (35 y/o here). But, when you consider the chances that you’ll be the very first commenter on a site with this much traffic…a little bragging may be in order.

    The general rule of thumb is that you don’t “FIRST!” on a thread about items of a personal nature, like condolence threads. “FIRST!”ing on those is considered just poor taste.

    And I’m with you on the sudden drop in humor from a dead fridge. My fridge died twice in the past year, and I snarled my way through life for a week after each event, and I’m so cheap, I never lost more than $20 in food each time.

    On to the on-topic…

    I’m not sure I’d be so bold as to demand the plane not take off if I saw someone suspicious on the plane. I would watch them like a hawk, and expect to take immediate action if they tried something stupid, though.

    But, that’s just me. I’m terrified of inconveniencing others.

    Mercer is the Tory (ie “Conservative” opposition) spokesman. He’s the one they get if the current Leftist government gets kicked out. What a choice!

    Much has changed in Britain over the years. But the ability to go “harumph! HARUMPH I SAY!” when faced with a situation beyond grasp is still very much in place.

    Have you looked at the comment (1) so far in the piece? Some young “asian” male whinning about the unfairness of ignorant racist non asians towards poor inocent “asians”

    Try leaving a comment about the article on the DAILY MAIL site. I left a few comments since the story broke, but they appear to only allow left wing comments…none of the comments that are showing are positive about what the passebgers did. Very interesting…

    Give it time, Spark.

    They might eventually show up. The Daily Mail is usually more liberal with publishing comments than the Beeb is.

    “This is a victory for terrorists. These people on the flight have been terrorised into behaving irrationally.”

    I can’t carry a bottle of water onto a plane because some idiot thinks I could make acetone peroxide in the toilet but heaven forbid passengers might get nervous over young “Asian” men speaking Arabic and acting suspiciously.

    There is no irrationality here, citizen.
    … now move along…

  16. Unregistered Comment by Nastimann UNITED STATES

    Fifteen years ago, my wife and I were flying from Frankfurt to Vancouver, BC, and the sight of a of “far west Asian” man boarding our flight made us wonder aloud if we would make it to our destination safely (although we stayed on the plane, and we did make make it safely home). Even then, “far west Asian” men had established a reputation for airplane violence. Today, I would not get on a plane if a “far west Asian” male was allowed to skate through security while jewish grandmothers and blonds with children underwent full scrutiny for the sake of PC sensitivity.

    To the “far west Asians”: For crying out loud, if you don’t like to be profiled, put pressure on those members of your religion/culture/race to quit pulling those damn profile-worthy shenanigans.

    To the recklessly PC government: If you refuse to get serious about this threat, and refuse to live up to your responsibility to protect your citizens (arguably the only legitimate government function), your citizens will take matters into their own hands (a well-armed militia and all that).

  17. kwongdzu Comment by kwongdzu UNITED STATES

    MoMinuteMan: I am sorry your food all spoiled. It sucks. As to FIRST - well, bite me, ok? I’m NEVER first for anything (well, nothing good!), but I happened to be up late at night, after a day of shoveling shit out from under my boys’ beds and closets (I think I found out where the unidentified bugs were coming from), and felt like I’d earned it! Yes, it’s juvenile, but who gives a crap? Besides, posting LAST just doesn’t work.

    But, I’ve got an even better FIRST. You see, I’m nastimann’s wife, and we thought about not boarding that plane in ‘89, shortly after Lockerbie, after having a gander at that dude. We would have been stuck in Frankfurt, though. Still, we were “profiling” way back when!

    He was a surly looking guy with a scar that ran from his ear to his mouth. He was traveling by himself. They made us deplane in Amsterdam (no reason given - it was supposed to be a straight-through flight), and ran everyone through security a second time. To this day, we don’t know what it was about, but I watched that guy all the way home! Today, if I were presented with the same situation, I would not board the plane. It’s just not worth chancing it unless the airlines thoroughly search these guys. I wish at least, they would parade all passengers past a bomb-sniffing dog, but I have not noticed that they do that.

  18. kwongdzu Comment by kwongdzu UNITED STATES

    You know, we talked about this, and I think they did talk to that guy, but then he ended up on the plane anyway. Maybe they used more common sense back in ‘89.

    “Behaving irrationally”? What? Haven’t they been writing about that bombing plot…?
