The video of a passenger being forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight has outraged the entire world. Who in the hell treats a paying customer like that? Better yet, who treats even their worst enemy in such a way?
Leave it to Fox News to figure out a way that such behavior isn’t the fault of the offending airline and their hired thugs, it’s got to be the fault of the government.
The person who stepped forward to blame someone other than United was Fox host Sandra Smith. Fox News contributor, Geraldo Rivera, commented:
“Airlines disgust me. They do everything to maximize profit.”
In rushed Smith to the rescue of the greedy airlines:
“There’s nothing wrong with maximizing profit. That’s what they’re supposed to do as a publicly traded airline.”
A couple of minutes later, Meghan McCain commented:
“I think most of the time you feel like an animal when you’re going through the airport. Americans pay a lot of money.”
Once again, Smith defended the indefensible actions of United, saying:
“There’s also another side of this story. The airlines have been over-regulated to the point where it’s difficult to even conduct business in this country.”
Oh give us all a fucking break, Sandra Bimbo! The government is NOT to blame when a company treats a person like shit. And as for your profit motive bullshit, you can take that and shove it where the sun don’t shine. Dollars and cents are not some god we all need to bow down and worship. It’s called human decency. Google it and see what it says.
