I think it's one of those deals where both sides are right, and both are wrong. I mean, freedom of speech is great, but on the other hand you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater or wear "I hate black people" in downtown Harlem. At least not without consequences.

If you were getting ready to board a plane with your family, would you want a man with Arabic writing on his shirt getting on board? I'll be honest...I wouldn't. We have to adapt to their culture when we're over there. Women don't walk around in short shorts, etc.

We have to adapt to their culture over there because they are not tolerant. We are supposed to be.

His "Arabic writing" probably said "Burger King" or something similar....

So they should be able to throw anyone off the plane who speaks Arabic as well, I take it.

Anyone who could successfully translate the shirt should be refused the right to fly as well.

america is multicultural. people have immigrated here from all over the world since the country was conceived. "no foreign languages on shirts" is not part of america's culture.

Especially if they are gay and once served the Army.

Hm.

JFK.

Surprising in one way....not so much in another.

Before reading the article my brain was screaming GOTTA BE ST. LOUIS....but no.

Pretty stupid. It is a shirt. Get over it. Leave the man alone. A real hijacker most likely isn't going to announce himself pre-flight.
