Showing Up At The Airport Way Too Late While Muslim

Debbie Schlussel puts the smackdown on the 40 idiotic CAIR complainers who missed their flight because they showed up too late. What? They missed their flight because they were Muslim? Please get a life and quit whining, you babies. (That's my pathetic version of a smackdown.)

Showing Up @ the Airport Way Too Late While Muslim

By Debbie Schlussel

So, you're flying back to the United States from Germany. You are late for your flight . . . way too late.

Even though for international flights you are required to check in at least an hour before the scheduled take-off time and board the flight a half hour before the flight, you arrive for the flight 20 minutes before take-off. The airline does not allow you on board and, maybe even makes you pay to get on the next flight because it's overbooked. Since it's the last flight out, your tardiness also costs you the expense of a night at a hotel.

What do you do?

If you're like everyone else, you quietly chastise yourself for being late and kick yourself for the hassle and extra money your own lack of time-budgeting cost you. You knew the rules, and you blew it.

But if you're an American Muslim, you raise holy hell, scream and yell about bigotry, Islamophobia, "flying while Muslim," etc., etc., etc. ad nauseam. And nausea. And you threaten to boycott the airline. Rules? Who cares about the rules? Hijackers? Security needs? Why is that my concern? The people who did that hijacked my religion, and I'm entitled to a giant chip on my shoulder and tons of privileges and special treatment because of it.
Update: Debbie follows up and reports that Northwest Airlines wilted under the threat of a Muslim boycott and are offering cash to those poor, hapless Muslim pilgrims.
