United Against Grown Men Throwing Temper Tantrums

While most Americans are outraged over video of a man being forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight, there are plenty who side with the airline.

For my part, I find some truth on both sides…

Yes it sucks that airlines overbook — but it’s literally written all over in fine print that we as customers agree to a gajillion times before boarding the plane.

Yes the man was treated badly — but by the time law enforcement is involved and they’re telling you to get off the plane, then you need to get off the plane. (There is no passenger “Stand your ground” law on airplanes!)

Ultimately, I’m a little bit ‘over’ the mob outrage that follows an event like this — so rather than empathize for that poor, poor man…I’m just sick to death of hearing him scream his lungs out like a baby. So I set out to find others who cut through the mob pseudo-moral outrage, and here are a few examples…

Finally, this guy pretty much nails it…

If whatever-the-hell-his-name-is suffered a loss of dignity as a result of all this, then the public’s perfectly-scripted tears aside — I humbly submit that it was entirely of his own doing.
