    Amazing how freakishly bigoted and paranoid our society has become to the point where even if the FBI says you're okay you still get booted off a flight.

    I remember reading about this a day or so ago.

    ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS!

    ...at least that's what it seems like the Government is trying to tell us.

    Seems some people still have that paranoia, hopefully more people become aware that all Muslims aren't bad people.

    No one said "bomb" at all.

    People are ignorant assholes, what else would you expect? My buddy Nosferatu Alucard is Iranian and he's dealt with bullshit like this before. It's all trained paranoia.

    I think that was a reference to a Ben Stiller movie scene in which he was removed from a plane for ridiculous reasons, the point being that said farce was not unlike this real-life case.

    It sucks when you can't even wear a T-shirt with another language on it, but that's the price we pay for living in a xenophobic, paranoid and completely twisted society.

    Shows too how much trust people have on the FBI these days. :lol:

    Oh and those T-shirts...ugh. I had a thread before about the ridiculous reasons people weren't allowed on the plane, including having a Transformer robot carrying a weapon, as your t-shirt design. Seriously. The robot has a gun!!!!
