Let me guess, woman from the boonies calls a cab in Alexandria, right?

::checks article::

That's what I thought.

Once you get away from Alexandria and Fairfax, VA turns deep south real fast.

It's good to see that our nation of snowflakes is now moving up the ladder into adult territory.  And this coming from a right leaning Libertarian...all i can say is, "Grow a farkin pair, woman.  It's a Taxi, not an alley in Fallujah".

*rolls eyes*

Yeah,

This is what our fear infested xenophobic society is turning out now.  Brilliant.

McLEAN, Va. (AP) -- For the second time in as many months, a Muslim civil rights group is pursuing criminal charges on behalf of a taxicab driver who was subjected to an anti-Islamic rant caught on tape.
In the most recent case, an Ashburn, Va., woman unleashed a string of expletives and called 911 to report that she was afraid for her life because she said her cabbie, Abdikar Aden of Alexandria, was "very Muslim."
Aden says the woman also poked him repeatedly in the back of his shoulder, though that part of the confrontation was not captured in a recording provided to The Associated Press.



Criminal charges because she said some mean things about you? I think she is an idiot but that isn't a crime.

Two questions:

1. Are there any cab drivers who  aren't Muslim? Or at least Middle Eastern or African?

2. How far was she going that the cab ride was $50 and only took her part of the way?

Pick any random CNN story and read the comments below it.    You could replace the term "Muslims" with "Jews" in half the comments, and the comments wouldnt have been out of place in the Volksitscher Beobacheter circa 1936.   And this is CNN, a relatively open forum.

Mind you, I'm no fan of Islam (or any religion), but there's a not so fine line between finding the tenets of their faith to be ethically wanting if not abhorrent and criticizing specific individuals and acts to calling for the wholesale liquidation of civilians, as is surprisingly and depressingly common.

Is he brown? - Maybe he'd like to come in and join us for a cocktail.
Is he polite? - Is he a brown man?
If he's polite, have him come in. If he's polite, let him in. Is he clean?
Have him come look. Have him take off his shoes.

It does not specify if the charges are for verbal abuse or for the poking. Verbal abuse is protected by 1st amendment, and nothing to say about that, but while someone is driving even "little poking" can cause an accident (I think there are some specific rules about that to protect cab drivers)

Reminds me of Annie Jacobsen, the twunt who whipped up hysteria and outrage among right-wingers with her hair-raising story about n commercial flight with several Syrian musicians.

Conservative broadcast her screed as some kind of action-hero survival story.

Normal people know it from Snopes .

Lady if you are not comfortable around foreign people then please stay the fark away from DC and the surrounding counties. If you find a white born in the US cabbie please play the lotto cause you got lucky. I think in DC I've had cabbies from all over the world.

We can thank the media for doing an outstanding job of sensationalism, for so long, that hatred/mistrust of Muslims is nearly an innate reaction. Somewhat like the white vs. black mentality of the 60's.

Long way.

Tyson's corner to Ashburn is 20+ minutes, even at highway speeds.

Part of the charge was because they had him wait 45 minutes before they got in the cab.


Bottom line: woman was skunk drunk and needs a good coont poont.

If it happened. Sounds like it could be a case of him being opportunistic and wanting to double down on the notoriety of the other incident that resulted in a broken jaw.

Aden was shaken by the confrontation. He stopped working nights, fearful that a hateful confrontation could turn violent.
Abbas believes the case should be prosecuted as a hate crime.
"Anti- Muslim violence is something we've seen in the past," Abbas said. "We have an opportunity now to send a clear message that assault against Muslims will not be tolerated."



Maybe it did and maybe it didn't but it sounds sketchy to me.

"He said the female passenger, Crabbe, was angry from the start because a $17 fare had already accumulated while Aden says he waited for 50 minutes for his passengers to come out."

Aaaaaah, there we go.

Fade2black: It's good to see that our nation of snowflakes is now moving up the ladder into adult territory.


It's getting worse too.  I'm in a political science class where a young girl just said that the Executive branch should have more power than the other branches of government and should be able to dictate what is in the nation's best interest.  Privacy and freedom are less important than security because of 9/11.

I REALLY wish I was making that up.  We are breeding a whole generation that is afraid of their own shadow and will be entirely dependent on government.

Don't like Muslims or people of any religion from North Africa/Middle East/Indian region? Paranoid and stupid? Don't take a cab!

I hope the next time she gets a cab it's driven by a 90 year old legally blind drunk senile Irishman with one leg.

The TV tells people that "blacks are lazy"; so stupid self-righteous people with no accomplishments to pride themselves on tell themselves they are better than "the lazy blacks".  Same goes for "all Muslims are terrorists".

 If the media wanted people to hate Catholics again, how long do you think it would take?

They'd latch onto anything. They're stupid.  Actually, stupid doesn't cover it.  They're shiat-eating morons.  They lack any sense of self-worth, and usually rightfully so.  You'll see some of them here shortly.

Campaigning for a local office, I was having a nice long conversation with someone I thought was completely reasonable and at least moderately educated, until she broke into our conversation and asked, "Are you for the Muslims?" She worded it just like that.

I'm not in the South. I'm just north of Boston.

I said, "I'm running to represent all the constituents in (name of area here)." She then said she would not support me, in so many words.

Crazies are everywhere.

Tyson's corner to Ashburn is 20+ minutes, even at highway speeds.

And isn't it something like $6-8 just to open the door and sit down?

Bottom line: woman was skunk drunk and needs a good coont poont.

Perhaps in the form of a judgement for "contributing to a dangerous situation" or some other nonsense charge. From TFA, it doesn't look like she could be charged with much more (no actual harm done to the cabbie - insults mean jack-all in court).

// although - could her rant be considered "fighting words"?
 
2013-06-19 01:02:41 PM
I'm fairly certain that if we were to simply carpet-bomb Ashburn into oblivion, virtually nothing of any value would be lost. It would also do a lot to improve area traffic.

"(T)he assault is made even more deplorable because it was based on Mr. Aden's faith alone,"

Nah.. less deplorable.  It is more deplorable to base it on the way someone looks that they cant do anything about.  If she wants to show prejudice based on that someone is black, there isnt anything the offendee can do there.    If she shows prejudice because someone smells, or which good book they read, well, that is their personal choice.

It's a bit like laughing that someone trips and falls.. vs laughing at someone that has Downs.  Both are laughs, but not the same.
