Folks, nothing is more pathetic than watching a white man -especially a privileged one- play the victim role here in America. We have been seeing it a lot after Barack Obama became president of these divided states. It's as if a switch went off when they had to look at someone else who doesn't look like them hold the highest office on earth for once. There is nothing quite like envy and fear to kick in that "color arousal", but I digress, back to American Airlines.
The biggest "woe is me" white man in America, Glenn Beck, is playing the victim card once again. This time he is blaming American Airlines for all of his woes.
"Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck says he was treated rudely on an American Airlines flight and will never fly on the carrier again.
American apologized and said it's looking into the incident.
Beck said on his radio show Tuesday that a flight attendant on a New York-to-Dallas plane "treated me as a subhuman." Beck said the man "fawned over the other passengers" but "barked" at Beck and slammed a can of soda down in front of him.
Beck implied that the flight attendant singled him out because of his political views. He wondered whether American even wanted conservatives on its planes.
"My family will never choose American Airlines again ... if this is the kind of people that American Airlines likes to hire," Beck said." [Source]
First of all, why is this clown even flying commercial? The guy's franchise is worth damn near a billion dollars and he can't afford his own Gulfstream?
Anyway, I am not sure what Beck expects when he goes out in public. He makes a living being nasty to people and expects the world to turn off a switch when they see him in public? Sorry, not going to happen. And Beck won't let it go, it's been days since the incident and he is still whining about it.
But this is par for the course for Mr. Victim. He complains about everything from people at an outdoor movie to the people of New York. His latest rant about New York is classic.
"After a weekend in New York City, I remembered why I was so glad to move out of New York City. It started for me on a Friday night, this last Friday at a barbecue restaurant. Now why my daughter who lives in the city thought that coming from Texas we should go have barbecue in New York City is beyond me, but we did. As we walked in, my wife said, oh, my gosh, this is so‑and‑so very famous, you know, barbecue couple that do this barbecue thing, you know, on TV. And I said, “Oh, okay.” She said, “It’s supposed to be really good.” Well, I have to tell you, the look that I was given by those in charge at this restaurant was, how dare you even come in here. It was quite amazing. I said to my wife as we were walking up the stairs, I said, this isn’t going to go well. And she said, no, this was really a mistake. This is a minority‑owned shop. Was that the line that I dared to cross? No? No, it couldn’t be because there were white people in there. So it must be something else besides my character. It’s amazing to me. One would think that ‑‑ you wouldn’t want to shun people that might have diverse opinions. Maybe they could put a second door in or another entrance in for people like me." Read more here. It only gets better.
Whaaaa. What a pathetic loser. Mr. Beck, I am sure that the people of New York are all glad to see you go.
Finally, I think that seeing all those "blah" people and other minorities at the dumbocrat's convention got Mitt thinking that maybe he needs some advice on how to deal with you people of color.
To address that problem Mitt went out and did what all good business men do when faced with a problem; he formed an advisory council to address it.
"Mitt Romney's presidential campaign announced Wednesday the formation of a Black Leadership Council.
The group is chaired by Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., and Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll. Its advisory council includes Mia Love, who as mayor of Saratoga Springs is the first black woman to govern a Utah city. Love was one of the stars of the Republican convention last week in Tampa, Fla.
In recent decades, blacks have been the most reliably Democratic group in the country and voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama, the first black to receive the presidential nomination from a major party.
The Romney group's leaders argue this year their candidate is the one who can help blacks." [Source]
Mitt, I am still waiting for my call. I am not sure that Allen West and Tim Scott are going to help you reach black folks. You don't need the people you selected, you already have the house vote.
But seriously, poor Mitt makes the classic mistake that folks in the majority population always make when dealing with black folks: they think that we vote for skin color and not ideology. Negroes like Scott and West are never going to help Mitt reach blacks folks, and it's because of their political ideology. Both those men could be blacker than Djimon Hounsou after a day in the sun, and they ain't moving the Negro needle one little bit for towards the republican side.
Sorry Mitt, "The
