A passenger flying on Spirit Airlines was kicked off his flight before takeoff after confronting a flight attendant over her Black Lives Matter pin. The incident has been viewed as being “racist” by the Black Lives Matter hate group.
The ordeal began when a flight attendant took her politically biased views and anti-police hatred onto the job by openly wearing on her uniform a button which read, “Black Lives Matter, White Supremacy Kills.” The message did not go over well with at least one passenger.
Passenger Robert Coyle became upset about the pin being worn by a flight attendant and had to speak up. He told her that “All Lives Matter,” according to Fox13 News in Tampa Bay.
“I said to her, ‘All lives matter.’ And she said, ‘I disagree with you, I disagree with you on so many levels.’ And then she went into some sort of memorized, ‘I really can’t speak politically while I am in uniform,” Coyle said.
Apparently Coyle voicing his own political opinion that “all lives” have equal value didn’t go over well with the attendant. As a result, she asked the pilot to take the plane back to the gate after Coyle took a picture of her wearing the pin. Coyle told her that he would delete the photo after she told him that taking her photo violated airlines rules.
Coyle told Fox13 News that she replied, “‘I disagree with you, I disagree with you on so many levels.’ And then she went into some sort of memorized, ‘I really can’t speak politically while I am in uniform’”. However, this didn’t stop her from choosing to wear a button that made her political statement for her.
Thankfully, Coyle was able to recover the photo and shared it with Fox13 News.
“No company should allow that to happen, unless they are willing to accept the consequences for that happening”, Coyle said.
In a statement to Fox13 News, Spirit Airlines stated that it was in fact a violation of policy for the attendant to wear the button. They have not yet publicly passed judgement on the controversial message that was presented by their employee, nor for removing a passenger from a plane for stating that all lives matter. The airline issued the following statement to Fox13 News:
The airline did offer Coyle restitution and reported that the flight attendant, who has yet to be named and has been employed by Spirit Airlines for 14 months, has been disciplined. Coyle stated that he is happy with their response.
“If you have something offensive on your uniform, you are going to offend customers” Coyle said, “and customers pay the bills.”
Robert Coyle stood up for what he believed in; that all lives matter, a view that has been touted as racist by hate groups such as Black Lives Matter. However, if more people defended this position and accepted this view, we could begin uniting as a nation of individuals instead of allowing the corporate media to control us through division by race, creed, class or religion.
