Man gets denied boarding due to Anti-Bush T-Shirt January 22, 2007

Seems like airlines will ban people for anything these days.  A man was barred from a Qantas Airways flight for wearing an Anti-Bush T-Shirt.  The US has the addition of the terrorist watchlists, but even clothing has become a problem.  It’s kind of ironic that the US went to war to give Iraq freedom, and people in the west are being denied this right.

A passenger barred from a Qantas airlines flight for wearing a T-shirt depicting US President George Bush as a terrorist has threatened legal action.

This is not the first time this has happened.  A very similar incident happened to Raed Jarrar at JFK, where he was barred from flying with JetBlue until he changed his t-shirt, which said ‘We will not be silent’ in Arabic and English.  As he says:

It sucks to be an Arab/Muslim living in the US these days. When you go to the middle east, you are a US tax-payer destroying people’s houses with your money, and when you come back to the US, you are a suspected terrorist and plane hijacker.

It sucks flying to the US. It sucks flying in the US. No wonder people prefer to drive wherever possible nowadays.  Air travel is becoming a traumatic experience.
