Glenn’s Labor Day weekend in NYC uncovers ugly hatred on American Airlines – UPDATED

Glenn’s response:

Original Story:

GLENN: I want to spend some time giving you knowledge on, you’re close to winning. In fact, you’re so close to winning, the left and the uber left doesn’t even know how to deal with it, and they’re getting very, very angry. I’ve lived in New York for, what, five years? I’ve seen ‑‑ I’ve seen New York. I’ve seen the ugly side of New York, I’ve seen the good side of New York, but I have not seen what I have seen in the last weekend. In fact, my wife said she’s never going to New York again. It was ‑‑ it was quite amazing.

I want to tell you a little bit about my weekend and I want to personally thank American Airlines for bringing to my attention that they don’t mean “American Airlines.” They mean “liberal American Airlines” apparently. But let me start here. Do you remember when Clint Eastwood got up on stage and he said, “You know there’s a lot of ‑‑ there’s a lot of people in Hollywood. They just don’t make a big deal out of it.” Now why? I’ve spent a lot of time with a few people in Hollywood that are very big names, and they’ll tell you why. They don’t have five Oscars to their name. They don’t have Clint Eastwood’s reputation. They don’t have Jon Voight’s reputation where it’s Jon Voight. You want Jon Voight? You gotta take Jon Voight.

PAT: And you know what was interesting about Eastwood’s speech was that he only mentioned himself and Jon Voight.

GLENN: And Jon Voight. That’s it.

PAT: Because those are the two biggest.

GLENN: They don’t say it. Now why? Why? Because they know they’ll never work again. It’s blacklisting, and it’s wrong if you’re a suspected Communist or a confirmed conservative. Blacklisting is wrong.

I want you to ask yourself, what have we become as a nation? If you have a different opinion, you are boycotted. You’re shouted down. You’re called worse names than you can possibly imagine. Your home or your business is targeted, sometimes by union thugs, sometimes by street gangs. Your church will be smeared. You’ll be made to feel like a pariah in every situation, and they’ll do it all in the name of diversity.

After a weekend in New York City, I remembered why I was so glad to move out of New York City. It started for me on a Friday night, this last Friday at a barbecue restaurant. Now why my daughter who lives in the city thought that coming from Texas we should go have barbecue in New York City is beyond me, but we did. As we walked in, my wife said, oh, my gosh, this is so‑and‑so very famous, you know, barbecue couple that do this barbecue thing, you know, on TV. And I said, “Oh, okay.” She said, “It’s supposed to be really good.” Well, I have to tell you, the look that I was given by those in charge at this restaurant was, how dare you even come in here. It was quite amazing. I said to my wife as we were walking up the stairs, I said, this isn’t going to go well. And she said, no, this was really a mistake. This is a minority‑owned shop. Was that the line that I dared to cross? No? No, it couldn’t be because there were white people in there. So it must be something else besides my character. It’s amazing to me. One would think that ‑‑ you wouldn’t want to shun people that might have diverse opinions. Maybe they could put a second door in or another entrance in for people like me.

The next morning we had breakfast in the heart of the land of diversity. I was openly mocked by the patrons, and my wife was begging to leave as she heard the wait staff and management gasp in horror that they actually had to serve me. Lunch was no different.

New York City has become a very vile and hateful place, if you happen to have a different opinion. It’s sad. Because I don’t see New York as a liberal city. I see New York as one of the greatest cities in America. Not a liberal city, but a city that has a lot of great things in it and a lot of great people in it who may disagree with me, may not.

I’ve lived in Texas in the last few months and I had forgotten why I needed my security detail. It’s funny because as I compared New York and Texas, there’s not everybody in Texas agrees with me. There’s a lot of liberals in Texas. It’s funny. We all have a neighbor here in Texas who is an Obama supporter. All of us do. But we’re neighbors first, Texans second, and Republicans and Democrats somewhere way down on the list.

On the way home I flew American Airlines, a Texas‑based airline. I, unlike all of the other passengers, was not offered the option of courteous service. I don’t know why. Did I have to pay more than I paid for my tickets? Is that something that you have to select now you? My flight attendant nearly ‑‑ merely barked the word “breakfast” when he came to me. When others were politely asked if they cared for anything to eat and given the choices, I was just barked at. When he delivered a soda, he slammed it down so hard, I hesitated to even open the can for fear that it would spray all over other passengers in the cabin. By the way, the other passengers, nobody else had to open their can. He opened it and poured it for them. Never once did he look me in the eye. Never once did he offer a kind or even a neutral word to me. I had service unlike I have never had ever before in my life, and I have had rude service before. I lived in New York City. I have never had service that was specifically designed to make me feel subhuman. Oh, I had it. He put on quite a show as he fawned over the other passengers proudly and loudly performing his life story about being a former Israeli soldier and how he was so proud of the very liberal cities in America.

I watched him and I wondered: Does this make him feel better somehow? It’s sad because I think it did. As I sat there, I wondered how many things we would actually agree on, how many things did he actually believe about me that aren’t even true. I wondered if he was ever made to feel like a second class citizen before. I wondered if he had any friends and family in the dark years of Europe that made them feel less productive. I wonder if his friends and family ever felt like they were less than a welcome member of society because of their faith or who they were or what they believed.

I had lots of time to ponder things. I wondered what I had done to this flight attendant from American Airlines that caused him this much pain that he as a grown man felt justified and uplifted by taking his pound of flesh. What had I done to him personally? Did I wrong him personally? Or was he just taking his pound of flesh and acting out for the collective? Would he tell stories later in the day about how he treated me? Would he revel in those stories as he told his friends? Would he laugh ‑‑ would they laugh and jeer with him and tell him how proud they were of his behavior? I wondered. I wondered if a guy like this flight attendant for American Airlines, if he were in a group of like‑minded people and that group of people were in power. I wonder if he and his friends would feel it rational to march me through the streets with a sign around my neck mocking and frightening anyone away who might want to stand with me. I wondered. Surely not. This somehow was different. This was just a small indignity.

I prayed a lot on the plane. I, as a man, wanted to say something but figured we’d end up landing in a city that I didn’t want to be in. I just wanted to go home. So I didn’t say anything. And then I prayed. I thought about Billy Graham. I thought the leader of my church a lot. I thought about the teachings of Jesus. And gee, none of them really could break through because I was filled with a lot of anger. But I got up and I decided, what is the one thing I can say that will understand, so he can recognize that I recognized his point but also say something true, and kind? And I decided after the weekend that I had had in New York, where nobody really treated my children any differently than they did me, they were acting for the collective on the collective, I realized he was the only man that treated my children differently than me. While he treated me as a subhuman, he treated my children nicely. So as I was deplaning, as he was standing next to the pilot, I said to him, “I want to sincerely thank you for not treating my children the way you treated me.” His response? “It was my pleasure. You deserved it.” The pilot didn’t say anything, nor did the other passengers, but they probably didn’t know what was going on. I remembered yesterday, as I was driving home from the airport, the airlines used to make an announcement at the end of the flight that says, “We know you have a choice in airlines and we’re glad that you chose us.” I wondered if American Airlines was happy that I chose them. Are they happy that other conservatives even fly in their planes? Are they glad to be based in Texas, or is this just an unfortunate stopover on the way to one of those many liberal cities their employees are so proud of? I know yesterday I did have a choice and I chose wrong. I chose to fly with American Airlines. I do have a choice. And my family will never choose American Airlines again. I and my family will choose another carrier. If this is the kind of people that American Airlines likes to hire in the service industry.

You see, I grew up in a family‑run business. “The customer is always right” is what my father taught me. I wasn’t trying to make a point. I just wanted to be treated as a human. Apparently that’s not the way at American Airlines anymore, unless they vote the way you do, unless you vote the way they do. I lost my cool as I walked off the plane, as I was told I deserved to be treated worse than any airline attendant would have treated a dog. I shouldn’t have lost my temper.

Last night I prayed that I would be forgiven for all the things that I may have done to divide, and to be given guidance on how to unite. I have made mistakes. We all have. We all have choices to make, and I have tried to make the highest possible choice. No matter my choice yesterday, I can make a new one today. We all have to if we’re going to survive. No matter who wins, tough times are coming. Like it or not, we’re in this one together. We have to be better than we have been in the past, and we have to expect it not from others but also from ourselves.

We are not the side shouting down, indoctrinating kids at institutions, making them fear, expressing a different opinion, or failing their class. All the while their professors are hiding behind tenure to protect intellectual diversity. We’re not blacklisting those who have a different opinion or a lifestyle. We know that actors lead lives that don’t reflect ours. We don’t shun their movies. We don’t boycott their movies. We connect where we can and the rest is up to them.

Hillary Clinton said during the last election that she was tired of being made to feel un‑American just because she disagreed with this president’s opinion. I remember it clearly. I’ll go a step further: I’m tired of being treated as a criminal, a disease, mentally challenged, stupid, or subhuman just because I happen to believe that the founders weren’t racists, that the Constitution was and still is inspired and the greatest document for government ever created, that the military is not full of a bunch of baby‑killers, or that we shouldn’t spend the money that we don’t have, or that we should stick up for the little guy, the small business owner, that the corrupt businessman should go to jail and that capitalism is still the best system to lift people out of poverty. I will not shy away from saying proudly that I believe in God, that I believe churchgoers in all churches get a bad rap. We are good people and the reason, Christians are the reason the Nazis were stopped, slavery was stopped, and man was eventually set free all over the planet. It was Christians that did it. I’m sorry that you might find that offensive, or that I ‑‑ that I go to church and you find that offensive, or that I happen to go to the wrong church and you find that offensive. But I will not apologize for what I believe in or who I am. Because what I believe in compels me to stand up for you and your right to be who you are. I’d just like to be treated with a little dignity along the way. Thank you, American Airlines, for making my next flight an easier choice.

    I swore off AAL while in the Navy.  A stewardess gave myself, another sailor and a Marine grief saying “are’nt you special wearing your uniforms on an airliner when you don’t have to”.  She also limited us to 2 beers because she did’nt “want any trouble”.  On departing the plane, she said with smirky sarcasm “thank you for flying American”, and loud enough for the rest of the crew to hear I replied, “Thanks to you, I’ll never fly this line again “.  That was 32 years ago.

      I had an unpleasant experience coming home for R&R from Iraq in 2009. To be honest, I am not 100% if it was an AAL crew or US Airways. They were handing out headphones and another soldier in a row wanted me to tap an attendant because she had passed us and it was kind of loud. I lightly tapped her on the upper back and she turned around and was like “Don’t poke me!” Having not seen an actual attractive female in months and this being an unattractive older lady it completely made me feel like crap. I’m not sure who was responsible for contracting the airplane, the airline or the military, but MY GOD. Omni International was the airplane and it was horrid. One crappy projector for lousy entertainment in cramped seating… for 14 hours of flying. Made the return flight extra dreadful. I wonder how much money was saved on the accomodations

        Glenn, you should have told him that HE deserves everything he will get from Barack Hussein Obama… and to mark your words about 10-15 years down the road. No matter who wins this election, we will be feeling the affects of BHO’s screwup for a long, long time! BTW, my boss, the senior pastor of a very large protestant church just came back from a conference in Atlanta and asked me never to put him on AAL’s again. I just emailed him this link.

      As I was retuning home from MCRD San Diego I was on a AA flight that stopped in Albuquerque, NM to change flights.  The flight I was on arrived late and as I ran from one end to the other they were just closing the door.  Since I was stuck I asked for help getting booked on another flight.  They left me standing there and after awhile I figured out they were not coming back.  I got on the pay phone, called my dad and told him I didn’t know when I’d get back home.  I hung up the phone and a agent from Delta came up and said he couldn’t help overhearing my call and said he could help.  I departed 1 1/2 hours later headed to Texas.  That was 1984 and I will never, ever pay for a seat on AA.  Last year my company flew me to our corporate office and had me booked on an AA flight.  I called our travel department and explained why I wanted to drive instead of fly.  They put me on a Continental flight.  I will do everything I can to deny AA any revenue from me or the company I work for.

        Similar incident with AA myself; they boarded everyone and cut me off at the end of the line though I had my boarding pass and all in hand. They said I could not board ‘due to I looked funny to the pilot.’

        Delta was the one who I did finally get a flight out on the way back to Phoenix; my luggage from being put aboard the Delta flight took six days to catch up with me and was damaged very badly.

            TSA is a ‘gift’ from our federal government, not the airlines.  Prior to the TSA, individual airlines or individual airports hired their own security personnel.  There were all kinds of complaints thenn because of the differences.  TSA is another example of government ‘doing what they do best’.

            We used to fly often, up to 5 years ago, and I got so tired of crying babies, smelly perfumes that I made a pledge, if I couldn’t drive, swim, or paddle a boat I wasn’t going anywhere outside an emergency.

            Having to take off my shoes, etc. at a local airport by a person I’d known for years, giving up  bottled water, makeup, comb with tines, nail clippers and multiple other things, I decided they didn’t need my money anymore.

            When they really make us safe by harassing the people who do these dirty deeds then I might change my mind.

            You got that right. I don’t fly where I am going. Won’t put myself through the T.S.A. while the one’s they should worry about are sent right on up to the air plane as they wouldn’t want to profile. How stupid.

            Last month I had to fly from South Carolina to Detroit to bring my mother’s ashes to be interred next to those of my father.  Having heard some horror stories about such a trip, I was proactive and checked out the matter on the TSA website.  There I learned that, on the day of the flight, they would take the closed box, containing the urn and ashes, and ‘scope’ it to try and determine if what was truly in /not in it.  If the image showed as transparent, when ‘scoped’ with a special grid that they put around it, all would be OK.  But, otherwise, the item could not be carried aboard, but would have to be put in stowed baggage, provided my carrier allowed that.  As the carrier’s website explicitly said they do not, I was faced with the potential horror of finding out at the time of flight that “we” couldn’t travel together.

            So on a Saturday two weeks prior to the flight, I walked up to the security line carrying the box and explained that I wanted it to have a test run.  Well, TSA couldn’t have been nicer.  They offered sincere condolences for my loss, respectively carried the box to the ‘scope’, apologized for making me wait while they got their special grid device, then ran the box through on the machine closest to the walkway so I could see for myself, and proved to our mutual satisfaction that it was not a threat as is.

            When I returned for the actual flight, I chose the same machine, explained that they might wish to get their grid, and received the same level of condolences and professional care as before.

            So, it really can just depend upon the particular individual(s) involved.  As Ann Landers was won’t to say, “Never first assign to malevolence what can just as easily be explained by malfeasance.  Sorry this is far off topic, but sometimes things just need to be said.

          snowleopard stated she was refused boarding ‘due to I looked funny to the pilot’.  Did you look funny?  The pilot has the last word on who boards the aircraft for which they are responsible.  You, with all of your rights to be an individual, look like a kook or a threat to the safety of the other passengers, the pilot has every right to refuse your boarding.  I don’t know for a fact (about you) but, I would say leave your fashion statements for your own neighborhood.

        I read a story in a management magazine some decades ago, of a young man who was treated badly by an airline. He later joined a major travel agency which he eventually managed. He estimated over the years, he had personally directed millions of dollars worth of business from that airline. He also told his  his staff of his experience. While they were free to recommend any airline to their clients, they directed many more millions in business away from that airline. Airlines need to be acutely aware of the financial damage their flight attendants can cause.

           I agree with you 100% acornminor… as a 28 yr flight attendant with AA… I must say I am saddened, embarrassed and  aghast of the treatment GB received… (and ANY bad service ANYONE should receive on AA).  I think the airline should consider it’s flight attendants as part of the sales department .  We TRY to impress upon the company that WE are their MOST valuable asset as it is WE who spend the MOST time with the customer.  In the end.. it is WE who determine if you have an enjoyable experience… or not…. Not the cheap fare/ free luggage or whatever other carrot they entice you with to get you to book.  However in all of my 28 years with AA… I NEVER felt like I was a valued employee… However I have ALWAYS treated MY customers as if they were a guest at a party at my home… and that is …to make sure they had a good time and were well taken care of.  Because that is the kind of person I am… and I take enormous pride in my work and how I present myself…AA sees me as “labor” an unskilled minion who only pushes a cart up the aisle… and frankly as myself and MANY MANY of my peers who have been around prepare to say AAdios…in light of the most recent paycuts…(Sorry… but my personal pride draws the line somewhere and I refuse to work for what the new industry standard LOW agreement stipulates)  That said…AA is now excited to hire 3 people in my place and pay them Zero benefits in the future… What kind of employee will that attract??   I have no idea… I will say….when I was hired as a bright , attractive 21 year old with a college degree in 1983  there was no APPLE, Microsoft or Facebook to go work for.  Flying was glamorous, fun  the travel was exciting… and the pay was decent.  Now, it is long… long hours, little rest, awful pay.. no benefits/ retirement and we have to be keen of terrorists or other obnoxious passengers who never would have stepped foot on a plane 28 years ago… So YES, AA SHOULD understand that sharp, personable, caring individuals in the service industry…are a VALUABLE asset.. they are in the PEOPLE business as well as the TRAVEL business… I have no doubt AA has lost millions and millions due to the actions of the rude minority who have NO business being in this profession.  It is sad… I have realized after 28 years I have no future with AA so i am leaving too… Good luck AA… you will no doubt find someone to push a cart up the aisle… but you will NEVER find someone who can REPLACE ME!

            I truly appreciate that you really cared about your job and took such good care of your passengers, even though your employer treated you like just another tool. I have never had a flight attendant that was anyting but professional so I have to believe that this guy Glenn dealt with was an exception.  I am saddened that AA is not appreciative of their good employees.  You will be successful at whatever work you do in the future because you know how to treat people.  I wish you only success in your future endeavors. .

            This of course does depend on where a person lives, but if you live in Texas you can get if far cheaper and take a higher wage, once the company itself is out of bankruptcy.  The Union is at least partially responsible for this.

            My experience in Unionized Verizon (over thirty years) is making me comment to your one line where you are saddened the AA does not appreciate good workers. Verizon’s first level management show appreciation to the good workers by working them harder. The goof offs who cannot do the work will still get the overtime & the same rate of pay as the worker who can do the work. The difference? It’s the goof off who enjoys a lighter workload, gets to BS his/her way of how important they are and then retire fresh as the day they started.

          • Laurence Almand

            Having worked for small business and large corporations, I must agree. The objective of an employer is to get as much work out of an employee, while paying as little money as possible. However, the stupid employers don’t realize that such behavior can cause huge financial loss – the good employees will walk out, just like I did.

          • Micky Baker

             There are some things I don’t agree with you on.  First, when the company isn’t making a profit and in danger of bankruptcy, it is probably best to take somewhat of a pay cut.  At times everyone needs to give up a little for a lot later.  Also, the way the Union is, I wouldn’t agree to paying any more in benefits ever.  You would be better off if you shopped for things like insurance yourself in most cases.  This of course does depend on where a person lives, but if you live in Texas you can get if far cheaper and take a higher wage, once the company itself is out of bankruptcy.  The Union is at least partially responsible for this.

            On being treated as a valued employee, that can be for a number of reasons.  However, if it’s the Union that is causing problems for the company, the company has a right to protect its assets.  This must never be forgotten, because one day you might be the owner of one.  But, if it is about being treated badly it needs to be taken care other than through contract negotiations.  Take it directly to the upper management, because sometimes the Union Leadership can be extremely over-zealous, and that is not the company’s fault if that occurs.

            Gloria… let me let you in on a secret… (shhhhhhh)… I posted a message about the treatment GB got with a video link to his story on an AA flight attendant blog/page… THINKING there would be similar OUTRAGE about what had happened… (like I was outraged.) You know what? I got HAMMERED!!!… Sure some of MY personal friends who I fly with and know well were disgusted as I was and a small percent responded in horror… but I ALSO got such seething remarks like “How could you take GB’s side over that of your co-worker?”… Nasty name calling was going on…and I finally just shook my head and said “I am DONE here”… and disconnected from the banter… Like every work group.. you have both sides of the fence… but WOW… I did not realize that I personally would take a pummeling simply because I shared the story… which I THOUGHT would be good for my co-workers to know!… Helloooooo!

            Probably 95-99% of these union members are dyed-in-the-wool Obama partisans and Democrats and maybe even to the left of that. They are probably hoping Obama will do for them what he did for, and to, GM, nationalize it at no matter what cost to the taxpayers and get not only pay increases but free health insurance and not have to contribute to their pensions.

          • Anonymous

            I would venture to guess that 75% are Democrats… of that 75% probably 30% of those Democrats are VERY left and quite political… the rest of us are a combination of Republican/ Independent and Libertarian… the vast majority however go to work.. try to avoid political discussions and just want to get along and do our job. But frankly there are occasions where you run into someone (Like Glenn did)… and it is PAINFUL to spend 3 days with them working on your trip. I will say there is no discussion about Obama nationalizing the airlines or AA… We just accepted another 17% pay cut due to the bankruptcy ordeal… (After a 33% pay cut in 2003) and gave up retirement/ overtime/ and agreed to fly 90-100 hours a month for a FLAT rate of pay. We are down to bare minimums and an industry low contract for the next 6 years… The only “Talk” there is is if US Air were to buy AA… if that happens we would merge. Most flight attendants (99%) of us are FOR this option as it would mean a new direction for AA… and hopefully a brighter more promising future if both airlines can compete with United/Continental and Delta/Northwest… and it would get rid of the current AA mgmt who has done nothing but drain this company for 10 years and bring us into BK. There is absolutely no talk about Getting FREE health insurance on the backs of taxpayers… Our healthcare premiums are about to adjust to a 400% increase over what we currently pay. ALSO… Our pensions (while we HAVE been contributing to “pre-funding” for YEARS… has now been discontinued by AA…. they are refunding our refunding all of our pre-funding money and freezing our accounts. They will offer a 5% match of contributions instead. So no… there is no looking toward Obama for anything… and no one is asking for a taxpayer bailout…. I would like for the airlines to MAKE money…but it is difficult to when taxpayers can fly across the country for $99 bucks… And I have to subsidize the taxpayers competitive ticket prices via my paycheck by constantly getting pay cuts…and my company cant make a profit…and ends up bankrupt. Something has to change. The air travel is not “a right”… it is a “convenience” and airlines should make a profit. Just like other companies in this country… However they need the RIGHT management team that understands that the AIRLINE BUSINESS is FIRST a PEOPLE business… not just flying planes from pt. a to pt. b… AA mgmt is not “people business” oriented… Southwest IS… there is a huge difference in the company culture. No one wants a free handout though… just better people at the helm of this ship…

            AA is a sad company now- they will go down. I had a horrible experience with them overbooking our flight & missing my connection- the person at the gate was a pure ass to me!!!! I will NEVER fly AA again & I am spreading my experience around liberally- TAKE THAT AA!!!!! Some one needs to know what customer service REALLY is!!

            That’s not true. It actually goes both ways. It’s the extreme right and the extreme left that are the most antagonistic and both blame each other for their rudeness. You’re both rude so chalk it up and admit it. :)

            The union IS the problem with AAL . The girls took a cut They don’t get all that much man. The pilots don’t start makin real money till there in the seat about 5 years. The 160K a year over paid bus drivers are long gone…

             With all due respect Mickey:
            1. All FA’s took a 33% paycut in 2003 to KEEP AA OUT of bankrupcy.  NONE of us have mad a penny increase since then. 
            2. In spite of our paycuts… we watched our MGMT walk away year after year with MILLIONS of dollars in bonuses as they slowly drained this company due to poor decision making. (The list of bad and costly decisions is long… but reconfiguring aircraft for “more legroom in coach” was a failed marketing ploy…. so was putting employees names on silver coffee pots for recognition… (huh??? Really??)… the list goes on…of stupid …stupid decisions.  That if you or I did…and cost our companies that much money… we’d be fired.
            3. My pay is commensurate to what I made in 1997 as that is when I topped out on the pay scale.  No raise sice 1997. Have you gotten a raise since 1997? I do not get insurance with AA… AA has a rule that you must fly so many hours to qualify for insurance/ vacation and health benefits.  I get none of them as I  am a mother first and a flight attendant second… so no.. At AA there is NONE of the “overpaid…excessive benefits arguments”. as we simply do not get them.  Thankfully my husband owns his own company and I have healthcare thru him.  Our union does not cause undue stress for AA or hardship… Do you realize that the first hour of every FLIGHT we show up to work for is FREE???  AA does not pay me until the plane is moving away from the gate… So YES… when we are boarding the aircraft… that is MY TIME… I am NOT getting paid to handle seat duplications and deal with questions about connections and your misconnected luggage… BUT I DO!… Let me ask you… SHOULD I get paid for my first hour of my time before every flight?  Or do I just show up at departure time.   And If I ask to be paid for that hour… I am deemed a “greedy union person”  but yet my company execs are saving hundreds of millions in dollars just in FREE labor  for 1 hour before every flight that leaves every day.. after day… after day… they get the huge bonuses… and dont give up an hour of THEIR time every day they come to work… I do not honestly know of ANY profession where someone is expected to work for free for an hour every time they show up to work.  Do YOU??
            4.  I actually started my own company 9 years ago… and it does pretty well.. Ironically it is due to my “customer service” that my sales are so high… Some people get it… some people unfortunately don’t.  Those that don’t  should not complain when they want to speak to a person… and get a voice labyrinth of options to go thru on the phone… or you have a kiosk when you really need a person to ask a question… or a sales voice in India when you thought you were talking to a local company.  Trust me I am not a big supporter of unions… in the 28 years I have been with AA… my pay and benefits have spiraled downward.  We are not Teamsters or SEIU… we are a union (aka a group) of Flight attendants who manage/ negotiate with the company on our own… so for people to think we wield all this crazy power is laughable.  We just want to be paid a fair rate for what we do… and get a raise once in a while… Since it has been since 1997… I am hoping that isn’t too much to ask… buy I guess all you anti-union folk think we should just work for free…. like we already do…should we make that 2 hours now everyday??  just saying…

            I worked at AA many years ago and the F/A’s never change.. You constantly complain about work conditions and management but continue to work there .. why? My experience with your group was overall pretty negative and from your rant you are typical .. unfortunately most of you take it out on the customers.. and fellow employees.. I remember trying to work on sales initiatives with your group and being treated like crap .. No I have absolutely no sympathy for AA F/A’s .. If you are miserable you deserve it.. No one really cares about the nuances of your work rules.. All of us in the airline work force have stories about the diminishing pay. Something your group never understood.. two words..”GROW UP” no one owes you a living..

            1. I work there because I like my job and I have a right to work where I want… and a right to complain when things are not right.
            When I take a 33% paycut for 9 years and witness AA mgmt taking millions of $$ in bonuses… while bringing the company to bankruptcy… YOU BETCHA I am going to complain.
            2.. What exactly were these “sales initiatives” you tried to work on with our group??? Hummm… I am always Leary of those who want to promote “sales initiatives” but decline to say exactly what they are.
            3. I never said I was miserable… Unappreciated… Yes… but never MISERABLE… I have a High tolerance for misery,.. Takes a lot for me to give up the occasional weekend in Paris… And as a full time mother… I have even MORE tolerance because I am not overworked.. and actually SMILE at passengers… Even at people like YOU who obviously do not like flight attendants.
            Finally, I NEVER ONCE stated anyone “owed me a living”… As a matter of FACT if you read any of my posts… you will know that i started my OWN company in 2003… and after 9 years in business i am in the position to say AAdios to AA. And guess what… MY business is a retail sporting goods company with international clients. It is a business i started on MY OWN primarily using my good old fashioned customer service skills and a a LOT of hard work. I don’t NEED AA… I don’t want to work with negative flight attendants who resent me because I am a “part -timer” and I certainly dont want to waste my customer service skills on unhappy people like yourself who assume i must not have 2 brain cells because I happen to be working your flight. AAdios to you too!

          • allen.richards

            Typical attitude towards the sales force.. we were trying to promote our new service to London. We were paying the F/A’s to sit in a classroom while we explained the new service and what it meant to the company and how we needed their help in identifying frequent travelers. I was told by several F/A’s that they didn’t appreciate being told how to their job.. which was never the intention and was never implied..We only said that they were our sales people in the sky .. Most complained about having to sit and listen about the new service as if they couldn’t be bothered.. And yes most of the F/A’s I knew at AA on the international routes acted like the company owed them a living. Your second job is a positive thing and many I knew in the F/A senior ranks had second businesses, sold real estate or did something else because their schedule allowed them the luxury of time off to work on a second career. Despite this you all still complain. I would imagine you continued to work there 9 years because you had a decent schedule and made enough money it was worthwhile even as a part timer..that was your choice.. .. I didn’t care for management and took a job somewhere else .. I certainly didn’t stick around a complain about it for 9 years.

            In the early 1970s Braniff Airlines threatened bankruptcy and got 50% wage and benefit concessions from their unions. Then the executives gave themselves large bonuses and low-interest loans and Braniff declared bankruptcy. The executives just re-routed money from the employees into their own pockets. I will never make a concession. Pay me as agreed or I will go elsewhere.

            I’m glad you acknowledged the Union’s participation in financial challenges – but – why should the pilots and attenants suffer financially? They pay their union dues just to watch the fat cats get fatter and they get treated like mice. Unions use to be a good thing – those days are long gone.

            You do realize that it is precisely because of people like Glenn Beck that the US now has a philosophy of stripping workers of benefits that the rest of the industrialized world takes for granted? Given Glenns rich fantasy world most of what he described probably didn’t happen anywhere except within his own ‘unique’ consciousness but if it did maybe that employee was expressing some of the frustration he feels at the media representative of those who believe nobody but them deserve paid holidays, healthcare, maternity leave, sick leave, decent pensions etc.

          • Anonymous

            1. When you are a paying customer on MY AIRPLANE I treat you with respect.. I do not care HOW you vote… what your particular occupation is, how you choose to live your life, your color, religion etc. 
            2. I don’t believe GB has a rich fantasy world and he over exaggerated on his experience… I work with flight attendants on occasion who are nothing short than militant when it comes to all things political… you just can’t even be around many of them… Is it a LOT of them? No. The vast vast majority of FA’s are courteous and professional and have no preconceived ax to grind against a passenger.
            3. If this FA was “expressing his frustration” like you say… It was the WRONG time and place.  Our JOB description no where states that we are to VENT our personal injustices and feelings upon our passengers.
            4. GB is not a media representative of those who believe “nobody but them deserves paid holidays, healthcare, maternity leave, sk leave a decent pension etc..”  Obviously you have never watched his program or listened to his show.  GB believes in the founding principals of this country… which basically states that ALL people no matter race, religion etc… have the right to liberty and an equal shot at success in this country.  The thought of “Class warfare” unnerves the man… as this is what he sees happening especially the demise of our middle class…and is trying to warn people about… The sad but true fact is that there exists a vast segment of people out there who are so politically BLINDED… they don’t even see the arguments he is making on their behalf.

            F/A’s at AA were always great at complaining and whining about their job rules and most took it out on employees and customers .. I worked at AA during your strike in the early nineties .. you all were despicable in the way you behaved as a group.. One example of how childish you all were was when I had customers verbally attacked and spit on as they were trying enter the ticket area when mistaken for scabs.

            Even before that one of the favorite tricks of the International crews on the MD-80 on the DFWNRT run was to shut down two of the Business Class Lavs reducing the number to 2 total so that they wouldn’t be disturbed when trying to catch some sleep. Yeah real professionals

          • Anonymous

            DUDE…. Learn your airplanes… The MD-80 NEVER HAS nor EVER WILL fly the DFW – NRT RUN. The MD-80 has 2 LAVS PERIOD… ONE in the front and ONE in the back. The MD-80 has NO business class either. The MD-80 does NOT fly international. So your STORY is a complete FALSEHOOD as there is no possible way ANY flight attendant could EVER “shut down any business class lavs thus reducing them to 2 total” on an MD-80 going from DFW-NRT. Yeah…. you truly sound like you worked for AA… you don’t even know your airplanes… yet you spout off like you know everything about AA… Yea…. you are a real aviation expert.

          • allen.richards

            MD11 not the MD 80 my mistake … and yes you can shut the lavs from the outside.. F/A’s do it before take off .. it doesn’t matter if you believe me or not I really don’t care but I had 8 1/2 years of listening to the AA F/A’s complain about work rules, pay and everything under the sun I didn’t really pay attention until it came to screwing with my clients … I had numerous complaints from corporate customers (Motorola primarily) , I met with supervisors over it and ran it up the chain of command.. It happened because the seats allocated for crew rest were the Business class seats next to the lavs on the right side of the a/c as I remember the MD11’s had 2 lavs on the right aisle side of business plus 2 in the center .. The excuse the F/A’s gave was that they did not want to be bothered by customers using the lavs… they couldn’t get to sleep.. again .. lousy service lousy attitude…

            After 28 years on the planes… I THINK I know how the lav locks work. But THANK YOU for educating me on on the lav doors… even if you don’t know what plane you are talking about.
            Also… with 18,0000 flight attendants in AA’s employ… How do you know WHO is “typical?” …Do you ACTUALLY know the majority of our work group? Just HOW many flight attendants do you know?? 1,000… 10,000….13,000… if so that is very impressive… as I have worked for 28 years and STILL don’t know more than about 200 flight attendants. so I have no idea what “typical” means…as we are a very diverse work group… people of different nationalities,.. races and political and religious beliefs… so if you can figure out what is “typical”… that is pretty amazing as You appear to be extremely prejudiced against people on the basis of their JOB… Therefore, i am sure you are NOT a conservative… Heck… I wonder why you even are AT at a Glenn Beck post. You ARE the same kind of liberal hate filled person just like the Flight attendant Glenn encountered..

            I am thankful and blessed that I now own a successful company… and i hire my own staff and employees…and travel the world not only to grow my business… but I also donate sporting good equipment to kids in 3rd world countries so they can experience the love of sports… So allen richards.. IF… YOU can find me another AA Flight attendant that owns a million dollar+ sporting goods company… and donates thousands of dollars worth of sporting goods to charity then you can call me ….”TYPICAL” Until then I find YOU are the one with the lousy attitude… NOT me. And I will no longer waste another moment of my time responding to your ignorant commentary…

            Thanks for sharing your story.  I have never been treated badly on a flight, but since it seems that AA is willing to treat customers badly I will not fly them again.  I like you always worked in a customer industry and was always willing to help and make sure that my company held on to their customers.  God Bless you in whatever you choose to do as you will be a success.

             Thank you… I post because as a long time employee it sickens me to think about what has happened at AA and the direction this company has gone over the recent years.  As of yesterday the bankruptcy judge made the decision to allow AA to toss out the pilots contracts.  Apparently AA does not value it’s pilots either… the men and women who FLY US SAFELY are also headed for industry low wages… Watch what unfolds in the coming days and weeks at AA…It is a travesty…MANY, many excellent employees with long standing careers are being sacrificed for nothing more than corporate greed…and the ability to use the court system to reach it’s goals…  I don’t blame you for not wanting to travel on AA…. I WORK there and I don’t enjoy walking on the plane anymore.  And Yes I am annoyed and disgusted that the few idiots out there I must work with have the ability to overshadow the many many positive things so many of us flight attendants do everyday.  All i can do is shake my head… and Move on…it was a nice ride… but it’s time to leave this circus… there are just TOO MANY clowns!

            I agree… the MOST frustrating thing about working for a large airline is the lack of any kind of performance based pay….or Bonus… (if you will for a “job well done” Everyone is paid the same rate… no matter if you are a fabulous FA who goes above and beyond assisting customers (there are those)… or the lazy FA who never answers a call light (there are those)… We DID have something called “incentive pay” which paid a slightly HIGER rate once you worked MORE than X amount of hours… but it was based solely on how much you worked… not how GOOD you performed. I will say this.. American Airlines has ALSO just removed the “incentive” pay for it’s flight attendants so we no longer get this small bit of “overtime pay”… It is ALL a FLAT RATE PAY… weather you work 20 hours a month or 120 hours a month. I don’t care for the union… but i don’t care for AA mgmt either… It is NOT interested in anything but bottom dollar for it’s flight attendants… which is FINE.. but they do not value the good work of the conscientious employees… Therefore with this new industry LOW contract… many of us will be leaving in DROVES… we simply refuse to be a slave to AA and work where “meritocracy” is is the standard. All I can say is GOOD LUCK to the flying public… the day has come where there will be a definite shift in the quality of service employee AA will attract. Young kids have MANY options when selecting an employer… Not so sure many of the bright ones will choose to work 100 hours a month… have no holidays/ or weekends off for YEARS…sit on reserve…. no holiday or overtime pay… no retirement benefits… Plus a 600 flight hour threshold just to get medical/ sick and vacation benefits. and a 400% increase they will have to pay for those benefits as to what we currently pay today…. good luck… I am just not into slAAve labor.

          • Anonymous

            I appreciate the “fair market” argument… but let me pose THIS question to you… What IS the fair market for airline pilots who have thousands of lives at stake…Also lets not forget the 200-230K in training costs they paid just to get qualified to be in the pool for the job at a commercial airline… I love the NON-Union/ Fair market value arguments people make for this… but frankly… when Joe T. Public only wants to pay $69. bucks for an airplane ticket… and allows the entire system to be dissected into a “i pay for a seat choice”…” I might pay for luggage” … “No I don’t want to pay for a meal”… There IS no money left to PAY salaries of the Pilots and Flight attendants!! This is why we are at this point in the road… and companies want US to keep taking pay cuts to subsidize the cheap fares…. The argument is a very valid one….IF THE PUBLIC apparently does not VALUE the enormous costs involved to keep planes in the air…(Fuel, maintenance, the training of the people at the controls…) Why on EARTH would ANY pilot want his or her paycheck determined by people who value a $69 dollar seat over safety?? Also… if a pilot has a bad day… and people die… I guess all pilots take a pay cut???… or what about Capt. “Sulley” when something goes right and you land a plane on the Hudson River… do all pilots get a raise as their “value” goes up?…. Frankly, I think the “fair market value” argument is only good for entertainers and athletes… people pay ticket sales and go to events… No lives are at stake.. Also… a sports fan will pay a HECK of a lot more than $69 bucks to go to a sporting event… BUT…no one has to figure out how to RAISE the stadium…get it to fly over the ocean and land in Paris when the game is over.

            Exactly, who needs Unions?. That could be the reason their membership has been plummeting since it’s zenith in the late 50’s and early 60’s. That being said, many union employees can’t make it in the free market. Most employees that transition from jobs that were non-union and become Union jobs, wish they hadn’t voted for the union once they realize that unions don’t really have their best interest at heart.

          “some decades ago” – hilarious

          • Gregory5152

            Hey Bwana86, why is remembering bad service from 20 or even 30 years ago hilarious? There are activist groups that still rant about disservice to their ancestors, horrible bigoted experiences they never even had personally, that occurred hundreds of years ago that they are demanding recompense for. Why is such a personal experience that may have left its emotional mark some 10-20-30 years ago so hilarious?

            I remember my own bad experience with AA from 30 years ago and have not used their airflight services since. It wasnt a bigoted experience that I know of…just bad service but I remember it.

            Is GB’s experience any more or less ridiculous than the angry chants of those who howl at the offenses of the bigotry of the south in the 60’s with “White Only Drinking Fountains?”

            Are negative racial, religious or political experiences that occurred at the expense of last century ancestors of these contemporary activists who may have never experienced personally any more legitimate than GB’s experience?

            Or are only negative experiences done to blacks legitimate and otherwise not counted if they are done to an outspoken white Mormon radio show host?

            There is way too much polarity in human politics. We are so caught up in the undercurrent of hatred and anger that we have shut down on the most valuable and important tool we have, to communicate and grow together. The political monsters on all sides of the social theatre are playing us against each other as a distraction while they carry on running business in Washington and elsewhere against our will.

            Washington has no intention of ever fixing this. This is their business. The next real leader will be the one who can bring us back to a place where speak to each other and not at each other.

Believe me, with AA, it’s all about the unions. Beck is a threat to them. Delta, gratefully is non-union (for now, but they keep trying), except for ALPA.

            Agreed. The employees voted wisely, but were forced to vote 3 times! Each time they lost the union screamed “unfair.”

        an american airlines flight from san diego to albuquerque?? are you sure???

      • DrG

        That’s interesting. Same thing happened to me during busy Thanksgiving weekend. Was stranded at Dallas Fortworth after arriving late for connecting flight, had 10 min to spare but they wouldn’t hold the flight. The AA desk was useless and they were content to let spend the day and night in airport. I approached an agent at the Delta counter and she got us booked right away. Vowed to never fly AA again. That was in 2004.

      American Airlines has a history of abuse to people and their luggage as well; recall that their destruction of one guitar started the ‘United you broke my guitar’ videos that went viral on youtube.

      This kind of active hostility you and Glenn suffered should never be tolerated by their bosses. Courtesy is what makes people return to fly again; insults are bad for business on the bottom line, I hope the guy that treated Glenn like that is fired.

        When Glenn started telling that story, it brought back anger and memories of 3 hours of humiliation and stares from other passengers.  There is more to the story, but I did’nt want to go into it.  (Blood pressure, ya know.)  When we went to complain at the AA office, it was nothing but sighs and eye rolling.  “have you guys been drinking?” grrr.

      A quote from a study on rationalization conducted by two psychologists, Brittany Liu and Peter Ditto: 
      “Conservatives are against “socialism” but love Medicare.  They hate Obamacare but nominated a guy who created the model for Obamacare.  They’re against abortion but don’t want to teach kids about condoms.  They don’t like Wall Street but want fewer regulations.  The list goes on.  And that’s why people search for the news that reassures them that they are correct instead of simply searching for the truth; cognitive dissonance is the reason that Fox News is profitable.”
      Here’s a link to an article about the study:

        First of all, we pay into Medicare, was not meant to be a social/welfare program. So, yes, I can be against Socialism and be for keeping a program that I have paid into for my retirement. Of course, I don’t expect to see it now since obama is ripping it off to pay for his Obamacare monster. Secondly, Although most Conservatives were against Romneys healthcare package for Maine, it does not compare to the massive 2000 paged Obamacare with ladened taxes. Thirdly, condoms isn’t the main issue, although, let me as a parent decide that for my child. It’s just as a Christian, I do not want the possibility of a liberal teacher teaching my child their views on sex. I teach them that abstinence is the ultimate protection until marriage, and then the consequences of sex outside of marriage. Lastly, don’t buy into the class warfare and that all rich people are criminals or bad. They give many, many American good paying jobs. If you are for regulations, lets start first regualting and auditing our Govt. This is where we need to clean out and clean up first.

        • Mario Lebowski

          Health classes do not promote liberal views, and they do not encourage sex. They merely teach the scientific facts behind sex and reproduction. If you want your children to not know anything about that area of science, don’t send them to public school.

Until you spend some time teaching or involved in a classroom, don’t spout your denials as if they were fact!

            There is  no scientific fact involved in practicing a condom on a banana. You are simply demonstrating your abundant liberal ignorance of classroom facts!

            Then you would be aware of the growing numbers of teenaged girls with preventable, sexually transmitted diseases like herpes and chlamydia? Do they talk about the medical side of life at school? Do they explain to you that if you are pregnant and have an outbreak of herpes, for example, you won’t be allowed to give birth naturally in case you infect your baby.

            Do they explain to you that as a girl, when you get sexual with boys, all sorts of hormones are released, particularly oxytocin, which is called the bonding hormone for a reason, so even though you just started out hooking up, after playing around a few times you start liking him, but he doesn’t like you back. So you get confused, and uncomfortable, but you don’t know how to say no.

            All these wonderful little trips down the side lanes that they don’t tell you about.

            Oh, and you can carry chlamydia without being aware, then you infect your boyfriend, or you can find yourself unable to have children years later.

            But that’s okay, because you know how to put a condom on a banana.

            happylada..don’t forget the ‘instruction of ‘fisting’toschool kids. As well as the introduction of homsexuality ‘education’ under Kevin Jennings..Obama’s school safety czar. And in Mass. grade school children are taught about beastuality. Kindergardners take home books on 2mommies and 2 daddys. Todays education on sex goes beyond the boundries of the science of our reproductive bodies and is now a lesson in the perverted.

            Since you’re 16 (really?), you would have no idea what this used to be like before our culture went over the edge. And try to put yourself in the shoes of other people sometime, it’s always good advice. Imagine having children, and other people, yes at a public school, want to teach your children things that you feel are inappropriate or in ways that don’t meet your values. Perhaps then you can understand our objection to “modern sex ed.” Also, it’s my right, as I PAY the taxes, to send my children to public schools if I so wish, and still disagree with them. They are here to serve ME, not the other way around.

          You know what? You’re right. You must know more about a psychological study than the accredited psychologists who conducted it. The website I posted does not show the study itself, it shows a liberally biased article about it. The facts still hold true though.

          • Anonymous

            LOL…3 examples why one shouldn’t listen to a

            Back when I was 16, Cosmopolitan had a husband and wife
            psychologist team who wrote a regular column on dating and sex, etc. and
            answered questions from readers. They told a young girl, who was unhappy with
            being a girl going through her changes and disliked having a monthly menstrual
            cycle, to take one of her used pads and explore it intimately.

            2 psychologists living in the town that I grew up in :

            One had 3 daughters — Of the three daughters, one was a
            nervous wreck who never washed her hair and always looked at the floor when in a
            conversation (which if she spoke at all, was in whisper). One was an honor
            student, who after graduating from high school, went to work at a local dept.
            store. After moving her from clerical work, to the wrapping bept., they fired
            her within a week because she couldn’t preform the simplest of tasks. The third
            daughter was socially outgoing but unfortunately slept with anything in

            The other psychologist had 2 children; a boy and a
            girl. Later while in their teens, the brother raped the sister. She was later
            committed to a institution for the mentally insane.

            Both psychologists had some really messed up children.
            Makes me wonder what was going on in those homes…..and maybe child services
            should have been called in.
            I wouldn’t believe eveything I read written by a psychologist

            That’s very interesting to me as I have had very similar experience with “shrinks” whom I encountered over the years (in social situations – not psych wards).  They tend to somewhat messed up relative to most people and seem to either be searching for answers to their own problems or are overly confident about the intellectual rigour of their craft. 

            I also remember taking a Psych 101 course in university (I took engineering but they insisted we take two Arts courses prior to graduation to humanize us).  The prof told us that he hated teaching Intro Psych because most of the students were basically just messed up kids who were trying to figure out their own problems.

      • Chester Hunnihugger

        And liberals love killing babies and gay marriage and “women’s rights” but partner with Islam…go figure.  Conservatives want fealty to the Constitution, free-market economy, individual liberty & responsibilility.  That quote is just a straw man argument with no basis in actual fact.  It’s a typical liberal trick…assign false motives to the “enemy” and then rebut them.  Easy to do when you distort the facts and project your own prejudices upon the victim of your wrath.

        We should all have some degree of cognitive dissonance or our minds would be too closed to function productively with other human beings.
        BUT a parent, a true patriot, when thinking about their children and the future are willing to make a sacrifice NOW for the good of all. 
        All the money grabbing CEO’s and power grabbing politicians need to check themselves before they allow any more debt to be incurred in our economy.  It will be our demise.
        Democrats think stimulus…. and though it has worked in the past, it will not work now with the same effect because consumer confidence is down…. the real “folks” situation is so far detached from the politicians’ life…any extra money goes to pay for necessities of survival… it does not go into the economy as a bonus of stimulus.

         I will NEVER fly AA because I refuse to support any company that believes it is o.k. to treat ANYONE less than anyone else. We ALL have a right to believe what we want to, no matter what. If someone does not agree with you, then that’s their opinion. To that AA employee: I pray that God bestow the same kind of courtesy and understanding as you bestowed upon my friend (and any other person you were “so courteous to”). I wonder how that employee would have felt or reacted if the tables were turned and he were treated the same way. That was just shameful.

      • windtalker700

        I found your statement interesting and I think you touched on some important topics. Here’s what makes sense to me.
        First:      Conservatives do want their Medicare particularly those of us who have paid for it. It’s mine, I paid for it. I’m all about better solutions but for the time being “ it is what it is” . Obamacare is a socialist, progressive train wreck. It would not be accurate to call Romney’s  health care plan a model for Obamacare.  The states have the right to make their own laws and welfare systems. When the feds do it our rights are stolen. That’s the key difference. Romney better be a  states’ rights republican or his presidency will be one term.
        Second: How about teaching our kids the importance of abstinence.  We live in an extremely promiscuous society. Aids two is just right around the corner and when it comes to using condoms. There’s a reason they don’t come with instructions. It’s Pretty self explanatory.
        Thirdly: Wall street, Deregulate means free commerce, free trade. I think most people understand that but it also entails having to take personal responsibility in your retirement and your finances or you might get hammered in the market.  Of course I don’t like Wall street and I especially don’t like the idea of trusting other people with my money.
        Fourth: cognitive dissonance, I think you struck a nerve on that one. For me I like Bill O’s  talking points memo’s I think its one of the most valuable pieces of information out there that gives the people fair information. The rest of it in many cases is geared towards entertainment but Fox is leading the way in fair and accurate reporting which sometimes is not very fair or accurate. But even then nobody else is getting close.
        Lastly, you brought up some interesting points but rather than swing a hammer I would very much like to disagree in a way and manner that may teach us both something.

        Conservatives are against abortion because it takes a life.  What if your mother had aborted you?  How would you feel about that?  I guess you wouldn’t be able to describe the pain as they pushed that sharp tool through your brain and twirled it around to finish you off because you were not consdered to be viable yet.  And after all, you would have been so inconvenient if you were born.  And your mother would have had to wonder for the rest of her life what you would have been like, and maybe how much better her life might have been if she had made another choice.  That’s the truth about abortion that Planned Parenthood doesn’t tell the mothers.  They have to live with that choice for the rest of their lives.  Believe it or not, many women who have abortions later regret it and even if they don’t admit it, they may never be able to forget what they intentionally had done to their unborn child.  Have you ever even considered any of those negatives about abortion.  Since you are a male, it makes it much easier for you to be pro-choice I guess.  Those babies are never going to be inside of you.

        I’m a conservative and I’m all in favor of condoms and contraceptives.  I spent three weeks in the Ukrain and Russia in 1990.  They had no contraceptives or condoms available for their population. But they had free abortions by the government.  Want to know why that was?  Because just like the progressives here, they wanted to desensitize people’s value they place on individual lives.  Surely abortions cost a lot more than contraceptives, so it was not about saving money.  It was just about making sure their people understood their indiviual lives were insignificant to the collective. It was also about control. They also took god away from them so they would not even have any hope for a better place when they were used up as worker bees in their miserable lives here on Earth. Yeah, Socialism is such a wonderful way to live. “NOT”  If Obama is re-elected you’ll be very surprised and dissapointed in what hapens to America.  I’ll just be dissapointed because I know exactly how awful it will be, it won’t be a surprise at all to me.  How’s that for the truth?  Not the truth you wanted to hear I’ll bet.

I flew a lot when I was younger and never had a bad experience, but we just live in a different age and now I am constantly dissappointed at how people treat each other!

Shortly after I got home, AAL announced a 15,000 employee layoff….and I could see why.  I wrote a letter to the airline that was AAL’s exchange partner, advising them of the incident and suggesting that they had made a BIG mistake in signing that agreement.

      I guess you speaking loudly about not flying this airline anymore taught them a lesson. Wow you really gave it to them.

      • sjwshareon

         It would have been right if she limited everyone to 2 beers but I bet that wasn’t the case
        Discrimination is based on treating a person poorly based solely on a judgement one person makes about another…..If the rule was 2 beers for everyone then…no discrimination but if for only the soldiers because she disagreed with their service to their country then= discrimination…about the behavior,… try keeping your cool when you have been treated with such injustice…it creates outrage because you know you don’t deserve it and it shouldn’t happen in this country…had nothing to do with the two beers. the feeling is the same when drinking soda.  I’m surprised you feel justified in reprimanding the soldier when you’ve probably done the same thing at one time or another. Obviously there is something wrong with the leadership culture of American Airlines because the employees still feel at liberty to treat people rudely based on a judgement …nothing has changed …the employee should have been fired for his treatment of Glen …32 years later

If I remember right there was a group like that in Europe back in the ’30s and ’40s. They had a good run but were eventually stopped. I see everywhere that the conservatives spread hate, but look where it’s really coming from, sad state of affairs.

What kind of lowlife do you have to be to think that someone doesn’t deserve these basic human rights in America, simply because you don’t believe what they believe? Way to be open-minded and accepting. Clearly you’re just another stupid hypocrite.

      • RandiJensenGray

        Wow, has Glenn ever done anything personal to you?  You hate him because of his beliefs, wow, I bet he doesn’t hate you for what you believe, in fact he probably would support your entitlement to believe what you do.  Sorry Frankie, but it is people like you that are causing such hate and division in our country.  Glenn did not expect anything more than what the rest of the people on the plane expected, good customer service.  I hope you have a blessed day and hope some day you can get over the deep rooted hate you have for people that think differently than you.

         He should’ve still been treated like a human no matter who he is. That’s their job as it is for anybodys job to where they have to deal with people they dont like. Otherwise, they shouldnt have the priveledge to have a job. As Americans, we dont treat our neighbors that way.Especially in a professional business!

      • Donna Griffin

        Even in Glenn were all the things you say, so what?  Are you perfect?  Have you ever done anything you are ashamed of?  I KNOW that you have because there isn’t a single soul that is perfect.  I doubt very seriously that Glenn is any of the things that you say he is and that it is just made up rhetoric, as usual.  If he is an “ex” anything, then he should be commended for rising up and creating a better life for himself, which he has done.  He wasn’t asking to be treated special but just to be treated like the other passengers.  Maybe you should go back and reread or watch the video.  Companies as large as American Airline are in the business of flying people to their destinations and providing great customer service, not judging their beliefs,  which was not the case with Glenn.

      • Paul Bukowski

        Whether you believe Glenn is correct or not he, like all people, needs to be treated with respect. It doesn’t sound like he wanted special treatment, just to be treated as well as everyone else. When we stop doing that we may as well hit the reset button and give the cockroaches a shot. I’ll bet they treat each other better than we do.
        Your comments sadden me, so unlike you and people like this flight attendant, I will pray for you to someday learn to treat others as you would be treated and to value the life God has given us.

         So my question is why are you even on this site if you hate Glenn Beck this much? The answer is, quite simply, you are a troll. You get on a site and say things like this to get a strong response from someone. It’s how you get off…well, that and porn sites. I’m not going to give you the satisfaction. I can’t hate you or say hateful things. I have nothing but pity for you. I do have advice though, man up and speak as though you were speaking to the person face to face, stay off the porn sites, and find something constructive to do with the spare time you obviously have too much of.

         I dont care who is on the plane. You dont treat somebody like that. Even if you hate him. In any job. You always have to treat everyone equally in all the professional jobs.

         You are a sad prototype of a human being and EXACTLY like the flight attendant!!   Glenn did not ask for SPECIAL treatment–just “normal, courteous” treatment.  Go ahead and “laugh your ass off” before somebody gives it the swift and hard KICK it deserves.  BTW, do you have a company or work for a company that we can all flock AWAY from in the future?

        There is no reasonable way anyone with any humanity can try to justify the conduct of the flight attendant OR your dumb comment.

        Frankie, what a negative attitude you have. No one, no matter who they are should be treated like that. I would hope that if I was an ex-druggie and a drunkard that I be treated like a human being. I think you would also have that same desire. If this was the way that Glenn was treated by people in the “Service Industry” than they should probably be encouraged to leave that industry because certainly they are not doing their job as they should. If it takes this to go “Viral” than so be it if it helps this encouragement to happen.

        I didn’t get the impression that he wanted to be treated SPECIAL, just that he wanted to be treated as every passenger who flies wants to be treated.  You should hear yourself, lots of hate, so sorry for you.

        Did you actually read the article, or are you another Nancy Pelosi and just assume what was said and make your liberal opinion based on the assumption that because it’s from a conservative, it must be offensive? Nothing was mentioned about his being SPECIAL. He just wanted to be treated like all the other passengers. Or…do you think that because you liberals are all SPECIAL, that Glenn Beck’s asking to be treated likewise also makes him SPECIAL? I believe that you feel SPECIAL because you are a liberal.

      • Curtis Newkirk

         You missed the point.  No matter what your beliefs, you should be civil to one another, and if you’re in a serving position, you should do your best to make the customer feel welcome and appreciated.  We all have different views.  You think  the people reporting for MSMBC get treated like crap when they travel through Texas?  It’s TEA verses OWS all over again.  If it’s my opinion, I’m wrong.  If it’s your opinion, I must be an idiot and a second class citizen because I don’t agree with your opinion.  Thanks for proving the conservative point.

        When did Glenn say or imply that he expected “SPECIAL” treatment?  If you listened to or read his words, your open mind would realize that he simply expected service afforded every other passenger.  But then, it’s obvious that you, too, believe that service should be given to customers based upon YOUR point of view and not your employer’s or the customer’s. 

        American Airlines is home-based in Dallas-Ft Worth, a fact known because I’m from Irving (the suburb which houses DFW Airport).  I am very disappointed to hear of Glenn’s experience with the flagship airline bearing our name.  I would hope that AA managers will do their job and cousel that employee on the meaning of service and offer opportunity for improvement.

        As for you, an obvious kool-aid drinker, we’ll be looking for you at the voting booth in November and, afterward, putting up with your angry retribution for having been told you’re wrong.

        Frankie, I guess you equate common courtesy with being treated “special”? Darling, you must live in a state of CONSTANT disappointment. When a person pays for a ticket on an airplane, they are also paying for service. To receive the low quality of service Mr. Beck received, he ought to get a full refund on his ticket. There is NO excuse for an employee of a company to treat a paying customer in this manner. None. The fact that you find justification for it just shows the level of your quality. Loooooooowwwwww.

        “idiot exdruggie drunk”  YOUR words…..the operative word here is EX.  Glenn did something about his situtation and is trying to lead a better life.  Just because YOU don’t agree with HIS politics doesn’t make him an idiot.  He didn’t want to be anybody’s ” darling” (except maybe his wife’s), he just wanted to be treated with the same courtesy as AA’s other customers on the flight.  It’s really sad that civility has gone the way of the dinosaurs…..very very sad.

         … Are you dense… he merely asked to be treated the SAME as everybody else, NOT SPECIAL. Any professional individual would know not to single someone out for SPECIAL treatment, so I guess we can conclude that the steward was not professional. And yes, as a very ordinary person, I would make sure I wrote AA to inform them of the very un-professional personnel they employ and hope that they reprimand accordingly!

        Frankie, you are extremely ignorant.  He never said he wanted to be treated “special”.  All he wanted was to be treated with courtesy as every other passenger was.  And I am sure you have a past of your own as well, so before you cast stones at another, look at yourself.

        What you have just described is apathy at it’s worst – and that is one reason this country is in the shape it is in today. Do you think for one minute that if the tables had been turned and Glenn was observing someone being treated in the same manner he would not have spoken up? We all can voice opposition to anyone being treated badly and if we have reached a point when we are more worried about what MIGHT happen rather than what IS happening, we are in a sorry state (no pun intended) for sure!

    I recently flew Amerian, only because I had enough points from another airline to use toward my American flight. I had a need to call reservations regarding a glitch on their website; the reservations rep on the phone was completely unprofessional. The ticket counter rep was surly and rude, as were the reps at the check-in counter. The flight attendants were neither overly friendly nor downright rude, but as far as I could tell, not happy to be there.

    That’s a sad tale. G/B keep your chin up your loved by millions and hated by losers. I use the term loser’s because it has never been hard to find the truth you just have to be willing to look for it. You’re an honest person and a great entertainer. Whenever I talk to people about politics I never use Beck’s name. It takes the credibility right out of the conversation. Sometimes I get angry when I think about that but as you say, “were winning”. Thank you Mr. Beck for all that you do. You’re a first class guardian of liberty.

      I couldn’t have said it better.  I know some people who work for American Airlines if I get a chance to talk to them, I will ask them what the heck is going on?  One is a pilot who flew one of the planes that was diverted to the ground during 9/11 and one is in the corporate offices somewhere.  I don’t fly anymore period because of the senseless safety issues.  I will not be groped by some moron. Thank you Glenn for moving to Texas and doing such a great job of keeping everyone informed as to the truth. If you ever get to Brenham, we would love to take you on a tour of Blue Bell ice cream.

    I am sorry for your treatment on my airline yesterday.  This flight attendant is not indicative of our company values and in fact was in violation of our standards of conduct.  I can assure you the majority of our employees love serving our customers–it is why we work in this industry.  Your treatment on our airline yesterday is under investigation.

    I served 10 years on active duty in the USAF and am currently a traditional guardsman in the Air National Guard flying KC-135s.  I have worked at AA for 11 years and can assure you, the pilots at American Airlines would never allow this behavior to exist if they knew it was happening.

       This is not the first time an AA flight attendant has behaved like an entitled loony on a DFW flight and it made the news. Happening more often recently. Gee, wonder if it’s the hiring policies for flight attendants based at DFW? I think I would look up the ladder a step or two, or more, if I were AA. They’re service has been declining for years, until I guess “here we are”!

      My spouse and kids fly a lot. Won’t be with AA again, even if we have to pay more. Spouse and I have both been / are platinum-frequent with AA.

      I’d like to support Dallas based businesses, local businesses since I live in Texas, but just can’t support this garbage.  Guess it’s a good thing for AA that Southwest isn’t allowed to fly out of DFW and is limited to Love Field.

      Any other non biased attendant would have offered to relieve him of his burden of having to do his job for such a horrible passenger. Then again maybe they were afraid to stand up to this attendant to maintain their jobs.

      good point. Maybe he should complain to American Airlines themselves. They may even issue him a public apology (even if only for publicity) and reprimand a self-centered server for putting his grudges above the needs of a customer. Shame on him for being in the service industry.

    I posted this on my FB, I don’t fly AA and I don’t fly UA.  They outsource everything anyhow and all those American jobs are lost forever and the service sucks from both of them.  Give me Southwest any day of the week.  The service is great and makes up for not having great seating.  But I’d rather have the fun people flying with me than the snobs that were on this plane with Glenn

    Thoughtful, considerate and well-stated, Glenn.  You were more patient than I would have been.  It is so sad that our public discourse has become so polarized that some of us cannot tolerate and be civil with anyone who has a different opinion on politics or religion.  This young man and those folks you encountered in NYC need a SOUL-CHANGE.  While I will pray for them, I, like you, will not patronize them and am posting this to FB to alert others.  STAY STRONG.  YOU ARE A TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT.

    Glenn, I read how some people treat you and while at first it makes me so very angry, it also makes me cry. I do not know you personally, but I agree with so much of what you have to say. However, even if I didn’t, it infuriates me that these so-called liberals, that falsely claim to stand up for the underdog, that scream about free speech and equal rights, have the obnoxious audacity to refuse such rights to, and viciously abuse, others who have a differing stance than they do. Your courage and strength are astonishing and deserve the utmost respect, as far as I am concerned. Jesus said that if you are “reviled and hated for His name’s sake, then blessed, blessed are you!” Well God bless you, Glenn, and don’t let the evil, stupid people get you down! We all know who their “father” is, and their day of reckoning is coming. (((hugs)))

  • Claire Adams

     I know some private pilots that would be honored to fly you and your family.  I don’t think AA is going to put up with this Dan Savage-style bully, but by you letting us know, we can bring it to their attention.  This jerk can assume at least 50% of his passengers don’t share his political views on any given flight, if not more.  This was some pent up anger directed at you.  The more h8 means the more fear – you are challenging their world view and they are afraid you are right.  Anger is the last glue they have to hold it together.

    God Bless, and Fly SWA!  I’ll save you a seat!!!

    This individual man who acted this way should be reported. The company would not tolerate this because it would cost them money and they are in the business of making money. We should report this type of behavior instead of acting against the company in whole. There are probably some really nice people that work there also. One bad apple needs to be cored. It is time we get personal with this type of behavior instead of accepting it. As a conservative Christian we are told to turn the other cheek but that doesn’t mean we can’t speak up and report bad behavior. I do it anytime I encounter it and everyone else should too. It is the only way to make people behave in society, other than jailing them.

    Wow, I will never fly American Airlines after this. I have to say, in this world I have noticed one thing. hatred against those who disagree.

      1. Glenn never asked anybody to boycott AA.

      2. How on earth do you think Glenn could have gotten this taken care of privately? Nothing would have changed and the MSM would have heard about it and mocked Glenn for weeks.

      3. Glenn’s story is a reminder that each of us needs to stand up for what is right and defend those around us who are being abused.

    Thanks for hitting it on the head Glenn. Sometimes I feel we get the same treatment because I will NOT support liberal causes if they go against my faith.

    I’m not well known and I can tell you as a frequent flyer that American Airlines is not hiring and maintaining happy or well trained employees.  I had to fly home from Miami on American Airlines with a broken knee. Not once did anyone on board, other than the kind passenger sitting next to me try to assist or get me a more comfortable seat, not once.  In fact the staff at the check-in, gate and on board were all rude and discourteous.  Strangers helped me but American Airlines staff did not.  I was very happy to be off that flight and will not fly American again if I can help it.

    Great story Glenn.  I agree with every word you said her but don’t necessarily blame the airline.  I look at more basic than that.  We as humans have been becoming less tolerent over time instead of more understanding.  We have been brought to a point in our society where we are shown by those that are supposedly “our respected leaders” that attacking and bad behavior to those that oppose you is acceptable. 

    I personally believe that if we are guided by spiritual principals, which are the prinicipals that guided the drafting of the constituion that we will find truer understanding and the ability to accept others for who they are.

    I was treated like i had a bug under my table while eating at a seafood resturant by the waiter that was male bald and around 35 . This guy had to be listening in on my conversations with my family members . Talk about service he missed nothing that we was discussing  about his conduct in our taking our orders . I think he purposely made ordering difficult so he could listen in on our discussion . When i was leaving he somehow tagged me as the sole person to leave a tip and went as far as knowing exsactly how much i left and even stopped me on my way out and said wont you leave me at least five dollars and he never even went to the table to see how much i left so how did he know i left 4 dollars and some change .?????? i was so changed by his ???? that i haven’t ate out since then and probably never will trust a waiter ever again as to who knows why this guy had our table bugged or is he a mind reader from in the kitchen and the kitchen is where food is put on the plate so me i don’t trust eating out anymore in this modern day od devises like bugs.

    I’m sorry you were treated so horribly.  Since our society no longer believes in the dignity of human life.  Especially those in the womb.  We’ve legally murdered over 50 million of our fellow citizens since roe v wade.  That being said, why would be expect to be treated with any semblance of dignity as human beings?  Obama has been the most divisive president we have ever had.  He and his underlings have made sure that hatred of any diverse opinions and views are made known.  He doesn’t care.  He is accomplishing what he set out to do.  Divide and conquer. 

    Unfortunately for my husband and myself we have tickets via AA to fly out of the country next month.  I will be looking elsewhere for a good deal next time.  Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  The same thing holds true for this election.  Fool the voters once Mr. Obama, shame on you.  Fool them twice, shame on them.

    Whether you like him or not this article is worth the read.  It is time to go back to treating people with dignity and respect.  I am sad for the anger that political lines have caused in this country.  To disagree politically and to be uncivil are two different things.  How very sad for our Nation which is founded on diversity and freedom that we have become so hateful.

    Thank you for the “heads up” Glenn.  It’s not an airline that I usually choose, but I will definitely not choose them again.  When I fly Delta, they treat their servicemen and women with respect.  They fly them in 1st class if there’s a seat available (and I have also seen people in 1st class give up their seat for them).  On a flight I took years ago, I went to the flight attendant and told her that I would like to pay for all of the drinks that any serviceman/woman wanted but that I wanted it to be anonymous.  She told me that while it was very considerate of me to offer it, it wasn’t necessary as Delta paid for all of their drinks.  Shame on ANY airline not to respect all of their respectful customers and not to show our servicemen and women deep gratitude!!

    Dear Glenn,
    I listened to this story this a.m. and was so upset I cried knowingly that this was not the company I had worked for 36 yrs. , now retired in 2006. I was a Dallas based flight attendant and loved my job and the folks I served………that was my job.  There were those few but far between, customers that were not the “best’  but my mom use to say to me “You can catch more flies with sugar than salt” and I tried to make it my mission to calm, understand and sway these rare unhappy passengers to become loyal customers for what was a great company that I use to work for and be a part of.  Right or wrong, as you said, these were our customers, our reason for my payroll and it was my job to make sure they “all” had a safe, enjoyable and good experience on our/my flights. Besides, I loved my passengers, one and all. This was easy “work” for me.
    Glenn, from the bottom of my heart I apologize and hope you realize that this particular person does not represent this once and hope will be again, proud and prosperous airline that I once worked for. 
    There is and remains a knot in my stomach to hear how you were treated, I am so very, very sorry and would do anything in my power to change your (and any mistreated passengers’) experience and heart with our company.  I would have loved and been so proud to have served you and your family had I been your flight attendant. I pray that American and it’s employees will once again get it’s “act together” and prove to you and all our valued customers that we do excel in customer service, no matter what path a person may choose to travel in life.
    God Bless you, your staff and family Glenn for all do for this great great country.


  • Tracy Horton Grover

    I’ll bet AA finds out who that was… they just got dissed big time!  But then, maybe others should be more tolerant.
    My father was very biased and racist after serving in WWII and having to see and partake in many horrors.
    I feel blessed that somehow that was not passed on to me… I like people if they like me!
    I have had to become extremely tolerant and learn to be ok with it by watching family members make choices I didn’t agree with and which hurt me dearly.  Especially when  they are your children.  Especially when they go against the things they have been taught their whole life.  It’s hard, but I still love them and want them in my life…. soooooo….. I’m tolerant of them and they are tolerant of me and we do have our lines drawn in the sand so to speak, but we give each other that and love each other.  Yes, us Christians, Mormon or not, try our best to be tolerant of others.  Not an easy task…. “Treat others as you would have them treat you”  hurray for your choice to be kind and civil even if you wanted to rip his head off.  What goes around comes around and he will have a moment very much like unto the one he gave you!
    Thank you for being a good example and may your blood pressure come down. 
    President Hinkely said many years ago that “it’s time to stand up for what we believe to be right” and I have tried to do that ever since, sometimes not with so much dignity but malice, but I am learning too “kill them with kindness” my mother’s motto.  Doesn’t always work, but gives them something to think about! 
    Have a better flight with whom ever else you choose next time!  Thanks for fighting for us all!

    I’ve often wondered why airline management doesn’t send out ‘secret’ flyers to watch the performance of their flight attendants.  I haven’t flown United or AA for over 20 years for incidents that I had with their personnel. IF I was on your flight, you would have watched me defend you because I find that too many people sit by and let crap like this happen to people (heaven forbid they should get involved).  I doubt I would have recognized who you were since famous people pass by me occasionally & I’m always oblivious to them.  I would simply have done it because it isn’t right especially from someone who is being paid to ‘service’ the customers of the organization that he works for.  They have extensive training on how to treat customers the AA way and this gent decided on his own to treat a customer ‘his way’.  He should be fired. Not because he treated you specifically this way but because he treated any customer of AA this way.  I plan to pass along your review of AA.  I hope that all of your readers will do the same.  I hope that your future choice will treat you with the respect that all passengers deserve.

    A few years ago I visited Texas. I asked for ketchup packets at a restaurant and the man behind the counter laughed. Was it because he could see the drug loving liberal through my eyes? Was it because I am brown and look Middle Eastern even though I have lived in US all my life? Was it because he was part of KKK? Or was he just an old man and this was the same way he would treat everyone else? Glenn you bitch about equality every single day yet you get on the air, separate every demographic in America through stark comparisons and then when people view you as a hate-mongoring animal – you cry foul. “Minority owned business” that thought wouldn’t even cross the mind of a democracy loving American.

    Let me add, I flew to China  in 2008 again in 2009. Flying to Hong Kong, then into China, through all the custums and searches etc. Not until I flew back into Texas, D/FW airport was I ever treated rudely. It was a large TSA agent, with a pissed attitude once I told him I had gone to China to get married. I thought …wow…this guy is really an  American….such hate and vile attitude towards me, what must he be like towards those coming here for he first time. Shame on people in positions like this which fail to understand how they represent the USA.

    Yes, this flight attendant will try and justify his ill treatment of Glen Beck as ‘getting what he deserved’…Unfortunately this little minion will be sacked 100% for making that poor choice.  American Airlines will face some negative fallback for this young mans actions.  He failed to offer even ‘fair’ service, he selfishly put his ’emotional’ agenda ahead of the company he was paid to represent.  As a former administrator within the hospitality industry, he has to be let go.

    We too had an unpleasant experience with the American Airlines attendant.  Upon boarding we proceeded to open the overhead storage bin that already contained a medium sized bag placed in such a way that it took up the whole bin. My companion simply moved it to the side a bit and put our bag in. Later, when the owner of the first bag went to retrieve something the attendant was nearby and heard her complain that her bag was moved.  My companion politely stated that he moved it so there would be room for our bag too. The attendant butted in saying “I wouldn’t want anyone touching my Versace bag either” and glared at us like we were a pile of crap. He then helped the woman retrieve her bag and glared at us again. So it’s elitism too, not just politics.

    And apparently conservatives aren’t the only ones that AA discriminates against.  They also discriminate against people with Down’s Syndrome. :(  This weekend they refused to allow a 16 year old boy with Down’s Syndrome to board a flight, claiming he was agitated and a “flight risk.”  But the boy’s mother took out her cell phone and started filming, and that boy was sitting there as sweetly as could be playing with his hat.  AA should be ashamed of themselves.

  • Peg Janson-Beebe

    I am just curious to know if you feel this type of hatred will subside if Barac Obama gets voted out. I sometimes think that many types of races feel that they can have an attitude since we basically have a “minority” for a president. A president who is STILL questionable as far as whether he is an actual citizen of the USA. If you look around the media and your neighborhoods you see a TON more of mixed /racial shows, movies, neighbors. I see the slow down ward spiral of even my neighborhood. If you ask anyone (white, black, hispanic etc) to even do something as simple as cleaning up their dogs waste, They don’t just get mad anymore they take revenge and put a bag of their dogs waste in your mailbox and set it on fire. I see the same hatred in the schools and sadly some of it at a grade school level. A level that is way beyond the norm of teasing. I hope American Airlines fires your flight attendant but being one who worked for a different airline for many years I doubt it will happen. I feel the same way Mr. Beck I can only hope (like you) that it changes. I believe none of this will change though unless certain things at the government level and at a business level change. One of the main things for both I believe is loyalty. Loyalty will come back if both the government & businesses (large or small) start bringing back loyalty into this country. What goes around comes around.

  • Dawn Gemmill

    Glenn, what a horrible experience.  I do have to tell you though, customer service at any store I have been in for the last year is TERRIBLE.  I have spent more time calling managers and filing complaints online, than I did before.  I have received NO follow-up to any of the issues, even when it was promised. Businesses just dont seem to care anymore. I say make sure they hear about it verbally and with your money.

    Glenn, you have nothing to feel bad about.  Even Jesus lost His temper.  He instructs us to be slow to anger, not to never get angry.  Sometimes anger is the correct response.  Be slow to anger … it should never be the first response but it is sometimes the correct response.

    Being trapped in a cabin at 30,000 feet being treated the way you were deserves an angry response and American airlines deserves to go bankrupt when conservatives choose another airline.

      Well if anyone knows VICTIM MENTALITY, you must. You and all your leftist minion. I say this……If you people HATE this country so damn much, why don’t you all move to Cuba where life is great and living is free, if you can find yourself a nice HUT on the ocean. Why must you all destroy the greatest nation on Earth? Millions and millions have lived in this free country and have been blessed by God’s goodness, where all you have to do is work hard, obey the laws on the books and get ahead. But the leftists can’t stand that. I’m sure the Castro brothers in Cuba will make sure you have the greatest medical care in the world. America had the greatest healthcare in the world until angry little Barack and his union thugs came along. No, sir, it’s your kind that play VICTIMHOOD. There is a government program for every little thing that sets you off. Taxpayers are on the hook but in the foggy minds of the LEFT, it’s all for FREE. Now that is B.S.

    It’s no wonder AA is going out of business! Maybe they think they are a government organization and do not have to give good customer service! And as far as New York is concerned it will go the way of California. Liberals are going to get another message this November like they did in 2010! America has had enough of the BS they spew! Diversity only matters if you are liberal!

    Jesus said, ” Be gentle as a lamb and as wise as a serpent”. He wasn’t adverse from calling them “vipers” and “sons of Satan” You’d do well to know that 99.9% of the liberals hate you, hate you to the extreme! Didn’t they run you off tv. They couldn’t run Rush off show because he knows exactly who they are and makes no apology for it. You on the other hand you make excuses for them. You see, a lot of conservatives won’t care if they treat you the way they do, because we feel you asked for it. Yet we stand up for Rush because we respect him. Why would you eat anywhere that they would more than likely spit in you fool and something even more vile. Yes, you are gentle as a lamb but the serpent is yet to appear!

    Get used to it Mr. Beck, as we’ve gotten used to the brand of vitriolic tripe that you spew on your radio broadcasts, and your hate-fill TV show (that was cancelled).  You’ve criticized minorities and called for legislation that would make life tougher for many of them.  You’ve made your bed, now you can sleep in it too.  You go on your shows and lie about minorities and then expect them to be courteous to you?  Don’t be naive.  I applaud the AA employee that gave you a hard time.  It’s much tougher to act the way you feel and not in a manner that is more socially acceptable.

    Stop playing the victim. It had nothing to do with you being a conservative and everything to do with the fact that you’re one of the most hated men in the country. You deliberately mislead people. There are liberals who do the same thing you do, and they’re equally bad for this country. Also, you make it sound as if you were tortured, people bother public figures, deal with it.

    This “assimilation” or blending is nothing more than an attempt to wipe out my race, the white race. It is genocide.

    Just so everyone out there realizes; I am a Gay man and I see what Glenn sees, I can’t believe that others don’t see this as well. Being Gay doesn’t mean you automatically become stupid, or liberial ; as far as AA never liked them them never will they have a history of treating people poorly.

    Glenn, I happen to work for the same parent company as the airline mentioned in this segment. I don’t have the luxury of finding another employer that provides me a livable income where I choose to live. I apologize for the treatment you received on your flight. But, my position with the company is not a position of leadership, I am an aircraft mechanic, my job is to fix aircraft, I do my best to treat all people equally regardless of what you believe. I don’t interface with customers on a regular basis, and frankly most customers would rather not see a mechanic on their aircraft. I live in Texas as you do, I treat all people with dignity, regardless of their religious, political, social or racial beliefs. My opinion, is that, I will allow you to be wrong, if you allow me to be wrong, I don’t begrudge you for your opinion or your belief, because I live in an America where you are entitled to your opinion. I cannot share my name as I fear my opinion may not reflect kindly on my opinion, and may have dire financial consequences for myself and my family. Again, I apologize for your treatment this weekend, I would never intentionally treat another person, another human being, as you were treated this past weekend, that’s not how I was raised. I hope you don’t have the opinion that all employees of that company behave as that person did, I respect your opinion, and your right to have it, I respect your beliefs and your right to have them, and foremost I think you may respect my opinions and beliefs, though they may or may not differ from yours, because it is my right to have them. 

    My apologies,
    An Aircraft Mechanic

  • Stacy Kuta

    Common for those harmed, to cause harm, which he seemed to have already felt the exact same way you do now – and likely, long before you arrived. Your presence just amplying his feeling pain from discrimination? Sadly, his personal opinions kept him from performing professionally and AA should know for some correction – as opposed to assuming one person represents the whole company and banning them (seemingly just as extreme.). It’s sad and hazardous, that nature of humans to respond with deep offense to the differences in others, and just the same, are attracted and commit on such superficial levels. Sometimes, you just have to consider the source – with focus on being safe. So, if you have a known disagreement, they come to believe those are offended by them or their choices. How narrow and foolish is it to believe any one thing defines a person, like, being gay? I see the on-going friction, that ever really goes very deep with te conservatives and do not understand why they shouldn’t be allowed a civil union – which does not redefine Holy Matrimony (fort the simple purpose of legalities during health, emergency, death, love etc…) Even insurance companies are getting on board with adding the category of “significant others” – which is shacking up. Both sides accuse the other of discrimination and hate – though som is out of ignorance and justification, not all of it is false. If you’re not liberal, you are labelled a hater – for the benefit of everyone else that so conveniently is your competition, whether it’s the truth or not. Very disheartening to see the winning at any cost tactics. Kudos for having the self-control to simply thank him for treating your family well, and acknowledging his misreatment in suh a civil way, as THAT is how you bridge the gap – 1 opportunity at a ime. Since you do not feel gay marriage is a threat, it would seem this person had another beef? Politics are so complicated, passed down through the generations but candidates varied as much as most humans,with ‘conservative dems and not so conservative republicans and of course, those chamileons. It’s a sad state of affairs that SHEEPLE, who do not find out the truth for themselves and take such drastic actions. When will honesthy and integrity become a critical measurement – not so easily explained or over looked? Take the next step and set the record straight – about NOT BEING A HATER just because someone sins differently than you. WWJD?

    Ridiculous that they would treat ANYONE like that.  Ridiculous is the entire Obama machine, his “Czars” and all his street thugs murdering off the families of anyone who talks out against him.  I am 26, I am glad I didn’t vote for him last time, as I am a very intelligent 26 year old. I seen right through the crooked ass smile on his face and that he was a manipulating, socialist liar from the first time my eyes met his… EXTREMELY happy now that everyone is finally waking up to his rhetoric this time around.  Not only is he going to lose.  I am predicting that he lose by a land slide.  I will give you 3.1 odds.   –  Because,  I don’t hang on the word of the bias media’s polls they like to shove down your throat as a gauge of where “Americans” stand.  Instead, I read articles online, (while 90% of the articles are PrObama) and follow the comments and thumbs up and down on each of them.  Here is the facts people.  Obama has lied to you, he is lying to you, and if you vote for him again he will continue to lie to you.   And the following statement is DIRECTLY to you Mr. Obama, and I would be pleased to say this to your face…    I was NOT challenged in my High School, I was injured and broke my back in a HS Football game at North Scott High School. I then had to go through 6 months of physical therapy, and ultimately they decided I had to have 3 disks cut out of my back. When I returned to school after months of physical therapy and surgery, They tell me I am kicked out for missing too much school..  NEVER being challenged by their curriculum, I walked away, and right into the GED center that directly correlates with the local community college.  I scored 730+ on all my tests, took pretests 1 day, 2 days later took all my post tests. All on the same day.  I then enrolled in college, and started my first company.  Quality PC.  I am now a 26 year old with 8 years of PROFESSIONAL experience running a successful computer company, I have been working with computers and electronics from the age of 9, I write software, design hardware, make websites and anything else computer related.  I know all of this because I have worked my ass off to learn and have always had a passion to BETTER MYSELF.  How dare you tell me that what I have done isn’t from my own hard work,  I am the one that is responsible for getting through these problems in my life. Finding a solution, and working hard as hell to accomplish what I have.  YOU apparently don’t understand that meaning of the Constitution. What it stands for, and means to everyone like myself in this country.  Don’t let these idiots ruin your own soul Mr. Obama.  I can tell by the loss in your soul that you have already sold it…  Don’t make the rest of the country follow suit.  Because I am one of millions that WILL stand in YOUR way and stop you.

American Airlines, obviously same thing.

    I vowed years ago never to give American Airlines my business.  I was deployed right after 9/11 and had purchased tickets for a family vacation with American Airlines.  9/11 hit I was sent overseas.  Our tickets were departing Manchester NH to Key West FL (spring break).  I returned from overseas about a month before our scheduled trip and checked my itinery only to find that I was no longer departing from or returning to Manchester NH rathe out of LaGuardia.  A mere 250 miles away, so I would have to drive there the night before and get a room so I could catch the early morning flight.  American refused to compensate me for the Room fees and did nothing to assist us.  Of course during our travel they announced how they are overbooked and will give you a $300 voucher  and upgrade on the next flight if you give up your seat.  I wrote a letter to the CEO of American along with USAF Chief of Staff and the ANG CAT Director.  American sent its usual form responce with nothing else.  The ANG director was supportive and nothing from USAF Chief of staffs office.  I therefore vowed never to give American Air another penny.

    If there are no white people left anywhere on the planet, due to official policies of massive immigration and forced integration for all white countries and only white countries, then Genocide has been committed.

    It is so simple even a child can understand it.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

      White people are the majority group here, I’m pretty sure they won’t be eliminated any time soon. Nobody is going to make you have sex and reproduce with people of other races. You can just keep making white babies, no matter how many black people are around you.

    Treat him special?!  Who said anything about being treated special?!  How about if you had received treatment like this on an airline.  In front of your children and wife…  How would you fare?!  So you might consider rethinking your position on your retarded comment “Frankie”  –  Straight up loser.  And idiot EX druggie drunk?!  Kinda sounds like the last 2 presidents the Democrats have managed to get elected into office…  Ohhh ya!  We see how well that worked out for them..  Guess what “Frankie” –  Ur days are over buddy.. Ur dream of hope and change have been shattered by the reality that you have been LIED TO YOUR FACE.     LET ME ASK YOU “FRANKIE” –  Hows that hope and change working out for you now?!

    I would have liked to hear that Glenn had taken it up with AA before he vented here.  I sent an email to the AA complaint dept. explaining the situation and asking for an apology.  I explained how it’s about being polite and respectful even if we have differences of opinion.  If that flight attendant or AA does apologize I hope Glenn will make it known.  It would be a shame for AA to suffer economic hardship because of the caprice and idiocy of one immature flight attendant.   If AA does handle this situation effectively I won’t hold the actions of one of their employees against them.  It could happen to anyone.  If they support this attendant’s actions that’s an entirely different situation.

    My husband and I will never fly American Airlines again.  Few years ago they left us with our two young children in Chicago.  Our incoming flight was sitting on tarmac waiting for our gate.  American knew that the flight we were on was delayed at getting to the gate.  We ran as fast as we could with two small children in tow and a car seat, diaper bag, etc.  We made it to the gate to find out the pilot pushed off 15 min. early.  Why???  Because he can.  Have never and will never set foot on American Airlines again!!

    You know what? I am proud of you and the work you have done and the way you have stayed true to your beliefs and convictions. There is a greater power that will judge all people by their merits, sins, and trespasses against their fellow man. I feel pity for those on the Liberal side that spew so much hate and division. I pray for the one’s who believe that America should be the land of anything goes. We have gotten away from what this country really stood for when our founding fathers came here…Freedom…Freedom of religion, Freedom of speech, and the Freedom to believe what you want to believe wothout prejudice and persecution from others who do not believe as you do. I don’t believe in same sex marriage, I do not believe in abortion unless it was rape or incest, I believe all welfare recipients should be drug tested and only allowed to stay on welfare for 2 years and if they have another child out of wedlock during that 2 year period their benefits will be terminated immediately. You may not agree with my beliefs and that okay! This is the land of the FREE. God Bless.

    1. Try to imagine how much brainwashing it would take to convince all the asians living in Asia, that they need to go ahead and replace themselves (in Asia) with North African Muslims????

    2. Now imagine that they were so totally mind conditioned and brainwashed. That they really believed it would be RACIST not to????

    Funny how “anti-racists” know to only target white countries isn’t it? If race isn’t real, how do they know to target all white countries and only white countries, for massive immigration of people that are not their race and forced integration, until white people disappear? Anyone who objects to this obvious genocide targeting white people, is called a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    In all fairness, is it possible that AA would not condone this?

    Proof: NOBODY is flooding millions of non-blacks into ALL black countries and ONLY into black countries and is telling everyone to “mix in”, until black people disappear everywhere on the planet – genocide.

    No one is holding “anti-racism” demonstrations in black countries, to demonstrate against blacks that oppose their people’s genocide.

    This is being done in all white countries and ONLY in white countries. This is GeNOcide.

    I have 2 very good quotes that should lift you up from those hateful attacks:“Jesus Christ lived in the midst of his enemies. At the end all his disciples deserted him. On the Cross he was utterly alone, surrounded by evildoers and mockers. For this cause he had come, to bring peace to the enemies of God. So the Christian, too, belongs not in the seclusion of a cloistered life but in the thick of foes. There is his commission, his work. ‘The kingdom is to be in the midst of your enemies. And he who will not suffer this does not want to be of the Kingdom of Christ; he wants to be among friends, to sit among roses and lilies, not with the bad people but the devout people. O you blasphemers and betrayers of Christ! If Christ had done what you are doing who would ever have been spared’ (Luther).” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Faith in Community 
    “Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies. (from “Loving Your Enemies”)” ― Martin Luther King Jr., A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

     My parents started their lives off in 1954 with an old farmhouse with no indoor plumbing. Three kids  later, still no indoor  plumbing. We had an outhouse and an underground cave in the back yard for tornadoes. Took baths in the kitchen sink and we had an old fuel oil heating stove. We all survived that, it was great. I miss those simple days. When a couple neighbors out in the Iowa countryside built themselves nice homes, I never heard my parents or grandparents ever say they thought those people were evil for getting nicer homes. NEVER heard that from them. We were all just happy to have a roof over our heads and a close family. We all worked hard, with gardens, carrying buckets of food to the hog barns, cleaning pens out, walking beans in the summertime, cuz if we kids wanted to buy something, we worked for it. It’s a real shame that these days, having to work for something is evil. After many years, we finally did get an indoor bathroom. It was appreciated so much more because we all worked for it. Then, we finally got ahead and got a new house. The ‘victims’ in this country with the ENTITLEMENT SYNDROME will have a very rude awakening if Obama gets re-elected because if they thought they had it bad now, it’s gonna get 3000X worse. Common Sense was a gift God gave to most of us.

    In Mexico, Mexicans control all of their own government and private institutions, so that is “Mexican Privilege”.

    In Africa, blacks control everything, so that is “black Privilege”.

    In Asia, asians control everything from top to bottom and that means they have “asian Privilege”.

    Of course the only “privilege” anti-whites like Tim Wise combat, is that of white people in their OWN countries.

    I heard your American Airlines story this morning. I would loved to have been on that flight sitting near enough to you, to witness the behavior of this rogue flight attendant. You can believe that I would not only have stood up for you and called this cretin to task, but also would have alerted AA headquarters as soon as we landed. Mr. Beck, you are far more charitable than me and your response to the shabby treatment was better thought out. I would have been tempted to shove said drink can up a flaming nostril of the steward. I realize this would not be in line with your message of love. Don’t know if I could do it, but God bless you. This is a war and the left is scared. They are losing!

    Can we compare and contrast for a sec? People can boycott $3.29 chicken sandwich because they have “different agendas/ideals/opinions,” than the company who sells the chicken (who is almost notorious for providing great service-always “their pleasure!”)… You know, people can also boycott a $650.00 plane ticket four times a year…which I will gladly do from now on…for the CORRECT reason: bad service. Bad service=no customers. That’s the way it works. This would be a different story if you would have received the service you paid for (which should be awesome by the way because flying is not cheap!) and your flight attendant merely would have stated he didn’t agree with you…but treated you well. 

  • Adam Hodge

    Hey, I don’t fly American, and this is just one more reason. I’ve never thought of them as a quality airline. I don’t know if they still do, but they used to have a partnership with Alaska Airline, and picked up some of their flights. When I would get on an Alaska flight the crew was nice, interior in good condition, and the in-flight food was good quality. I could always tell the difference when I would board an American flight; ratty interior, poor in-flight food, and the crews were not as nice as Alaska. I’ve never recommended them and I can’t see where they’ve improved over the years.

    I was impressed that Glenn thanked the attendant for treating his children better than him. How many men would have kept their composure under this difficult situation?  I am not sure why the flight attendant felt that it was appropriate to treat any one in a derogatory manner but American Airlines is aware of the problem now. It will be interesting to see how they choose to handle it. The flight attendant may have allowed his personal feelings to affect his performance but he should have thought this out. He chose to humiliate a man with a daily radio show with millions of listeners. Now we know two things about the flight attendant. He showed immature behavior and a stunning lack of thought about the consequences of his actions. I hope that his future enables him to have the time to reflect on his actions. In other words he will be unemployed. His rude behavior illustrates that he is not a good candidate for employment in a “service” industry.

  • Angela Hair Harwell

    I’m sorry you had to go through that Glenn…when my husband had to fly to Kuwait, American Airlines treated him so rudely… was a disgrace. It seemed the employees  didn’t care much for our military It was hard to take, besides the anxiety of my husband leaving for a year, and having to say goodbye,( with the way they were treating him) only made it even harder! They would not answer our questions, and when they did (sort of) they acted like he was bothering them, their voices and body language clearly spoke out loud that my husband was just in their way that day. We will never fly American again..

    Life is impersonal.   People treat you like trash because they know they will get away with it.

    Now, lets just say that Glenn decided to make an issue with the attendant, had his security detail follow the person, and then Glenn went the attendant’s home and confronted the behavior then they would have acted different.

    This is one reason why not a lot of TSA workers will wear their uniforms away from the airports.  The paybacks are severe when you can’t hide by being impersonal.

    And how about white Privilege? We can’t have whites dominating their own governments and corporations in their OWN countries, because that would be racist.

    Of course no one says Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Africans, etc should not dominate the government and the private sector in their OWN countries.

    They only combat this kind of “privilege” in white countries.

I have no problem with the fact people have different beliefs then I do. What I have a problem with is that they so obviously do. When you are in a service industry as I am you provide the same level of service to each and every customer no matter their beliefs. American Airlines allowing this type of service, and from the comments this isn’t the first time, will hurt them in the end. Nobody wishes to pay for a service and be treated subhuman.

      “Nobody wishes to pay for a service and be treated subhuman.”  If I could add to an excellent post:  It is not entertaining to watch other people be vilified either.

      I want professional service. No more, no less. I don’t want to know their political views, their “orientation”, or if they prefer boxers or briefs whether they agree with my views or not, or whether they agree with the rest of the passengers’ views or not. I don’t want to be able to tell, either way. Same goes for Barbara Whiney Striesand and all the idiots using their positions to force me to listen to their drivel. Shut up and do what you are getting paid to do. If you are doing it well, you won’t have time to pontificate. Again, this ain’t the first time AA has had this happen. Better look up the ladder for the real problem.

    Glenn it’s sad that you and your family had to be treated this way. I to until recently worked in the retail business (let go last year). I had worked both from an employee and management position. We have all seen people we knew could and would be trouble. That being said though it was our responsibility to assist them as best as possible. What he did to you is indefensible and should have been terminated immediately after a proper review.

    He was a small small man who had his chance to make himself big in his eyes. In the end all he did was hurt himself and the company he worked for. Being that I was in management I have had my share of times to directing a heated argument away from the customer and employee. That was my job to be the person to affect a good solution. With that though there have been times when I have pulled an employee to the side and told them in no uncertain terms that what they were doing was unprofessional and would not be tolerated. 

    I would hope that either his superior on the flight staff or the pilot himself took the initiative to report the jackass.

    I had a less but similar issue with IKEA a few years ago. My Mother had issues walking and we would go and get a wheelchair for her. We would wait online at the children area where the chairs are kept. We would give an id and the person there would call over the greeter who had the key for it. We had been there many many times. I saw and recognized the greeter. SO to save time I asked him if he could start to unlock the chairs so that I could get her in quickly.  As I was asking that the other employee there Rudely and loudly told me to wait on the line. I hadn’t asked him and was speaking to the greeter. I said fine and walked over there. I did though after I got the chair went immediately to the Floor manager and told her what had transpired. I didn’t ask for the person to be fired but i did say we have spent plenty of money in this store and it should be dealt with swiftly or they will loss more customers by this.

    There comes a time when you have to speak up and say this is wrong. You Glenn were the bigger person in the end. I just hope the pilot did his responsibility once he was aware of it.

    God Bless you Glenn Beck and keep up the good work. When we fly we use Southwest, but will be flying on Delta the 14th of this month. It is easy to see why AA has had money problems    because obviously they have no customer service, also were they not the first carrier to charge extra for luggage? Your treatment was beyond rude, and apparently the airlines do not care, that person should have been fired!!!!

    I am sorry that happened to you Mr. Beck. It must be a terrible feeling to be treated like that, just because of your differing opinions and beliefs. You did nothing wrong, and those people are, what’s the term..oh right…haters.

     God Bless you and your family cause you are so right Glen. I do believe its so close to
    our making a stand, I have always thought that you can push a real AMERICAN just so far
    and thats it.  Ask the Japanese and the Germans, they may have won the first round but
    when REAL AMERICANS stand up because of their love of God and their Country, mark
    my words they will win in the final hour…God Bless you Glen and God  Bless America.   I am part of the GREATEST GENERATION THAT EVER LIVED, I know a real AMERICAN when
    I see one. You are REAL. I truly believe AMERICAN AIRLINES is now owned by a foreign Country.

    I want to address the bbq restaurant he was talking about in NYC. Was he talking about the Neely’s from the Food Network? I know he did not mention names but does anyone know? I’m assuming so : Minority, couple, BBQ, TV show. I would like to know. It doesn’t sound like it was just one person taking their frustration out on Glenn there. Sounds like it was the whole staff. I’m gonna start digging into the political views of the Neely’s and see what they are all about. If I found out they are liberals I wouldn’t care but discrimination against people, especially paying customers, just because they are conservatives is not acceptable. If I found out Paula Deen was a a liberal I’d be bummed but I wouldn’t stop watching her show. Differences in opinion I can accept, hatred I cannot. What is going on in this country? Tolerate everyone and everything except Conservatives and Christianity??? How are Americans not seeing this hypocritical BS???

  • Angie Stock

    Rudeness and incivility should never be acceptable.  I had poor customer service from Delta in the past, but that was just poor service and not the kind of abuse mentioned here by soldiers and by Glenn.  Hearing all these stories, I think I’ll be avoiding AA in the future — even if it means flying Delta again.  So sorry to hear everyone’s horror stories.

  • Patricia Snyder

    no one should be treated the way u and your family were treated in nyc or on the plane.  keep up ur good work and stand behind the Word and the Constitution …….

  • Ron

    For many of us in the DFW area, there is no other convenient option to AA. I have flown over a million miles on American and I have had some inferior service from time to time but no more than I would experience on any other airline.

    Glenn, I have had the opportunity to observe your behavior in private and know that you are a good man with a good heart. I know you did not deserve this treatment (no one does), but the best way to correct this situation is to turn in the employee’s name along with your flight number to AA customer relations. I did this on two occasions in the past and I know that proper disciplinary action was taken.

    Yes, the jerk is having a good time telling all his like minded friends how he “dissed” you on the flight, but when his supervisor comes down on him, it won’t be so funny.

    Thanks for all you do.

    Riving story, and all too true because those that find fault in [a] Messiah’s administration, who deny reality and imagine that all the beautiful language and preacher-mode delivery is the truth and nothing but…BUT…as I have said on many venues, pay no attention to what our President says…watch and believe only what he actually does…it is very revealing.  As for American Airlines, after they bought TWA and then downsized, now bankrupt, their attitude will send them into Chapter 7 (liquidation) sooner than later.

  • Yona Loriner

     I called in, I emailed in, and until I see an American airline apology and Glenn beck accepting the apology, we will not fly with them. I made that decision not because i believe in boycotts but because i don’t want to fly with an airline that would treat me like crap because of my political view, especially a view that protects freedom!

    I for one will never fly American Again.. it is not my America to support such A holes

  • Jeff Deason

    I am a flight attendant for a regional airline that flies for American’s two largest competitors. If anyone at my carrier were to treat a passenger like that, they would not have a job as soon as management heard about it. I have to serve people daily who come from all walks of life, many of whom I have vast personal differences with. That’s part of what makes the job great though. I love meeting people who are different than me and being able to get to know them in the two hours that they are sitting on my plane. If you are unwilling or unable to do that, you should not be a flight attendant. Everyone deserves the same level of courtesy and respect.

    I am sorry Mr. Glenn that you & your family had to go through with this awful treatment in New York!
    I am hopeful there are other places in NY that would have treat you all differently and welcomed you in the right manner!
    I am also sorry your family or any other flyers on your plane had to see how you were treated on American Airlines!
    We should all follow ‘The Golden Rule’ “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you”. No matter what!

    I will not take any flights from American Airlines thank you Mr. Glenn Beck! 
    I wouldn’t want to make this flight attendant from American Airlines think he would have to wait on me, even though I am not a public figure; maybe he wouldn’t like the way I look. although I am not a frequent flyer I will not take any flights from American Airlines thank you Mr. Glenn Beck! 

  • Evan

     Glenn once again fails to see that it is human nature.  He is trying to fight a war against human nature.  Just look through history.  Every known civilization had some fight with a rival civilization.    Why is that? Because the two sides had their own ideas on how to live.  And thought theirs was the only way. 
    Glenn keeps saying we need to believe in God etc…  Do we all need to? Or maybe we all need to realize everyone lives their life the way they want to.  And that we need to respect everyone for that.  Till you can do that.  No matter what you do.  Some people will agree with you and some will disagree with you.  Accept it as part of life and move on.  Human Nature is why Communism will always fail and Human Nature is why Capitalism always has it’s hiccups.   Human Nature is why you have Dictators and Human Nature is why you have corrupt democracies.  Human Nature is what causes people to go on massive shooting sprees. It is also what brings us all together in the aftermath.  

    When will people understand it.. Human Nature.  It is who we are. No point in trying to change it. Because every time you do.  We will always fail.

    I feel your anger. I too was subjected to similar treatment at a restaurant in Walnut Creek, CA. My partner and I, a pair of none-descript conservative thinking and appearing homosexual men (I don’t use the term “gay” because my copy of the OED defines that as being happy, joyous and free, nothing about homosexual, and, at 26+ years sober, I’m usually happy joyous and free, until I remember certain incidents), arrived at the restaurant, a place about one wrung up the ladder from Denny’s, not exactly the Oak Room at the Plaza, and the hostess noticed that we were (inconspicuously) hold hands as couples often do. Her eyebrows furled, she glanced at the chatty families in the sparsely occupied dining room and barked… “I’ll seat you in the lounge”. I politely responded, “we don’t drink”. She ignored the comment and led us to a table in the dimly lit bar area, away form those cheerful atmosphere of the dining room. 
    She dropped the menus on the opposite edge of the table for us to reach for and left. A few moments later, she reappeared and asked, “you made up your minds yet?”. Now, I wanted to say “yes, I’ve decided you’re a bitch and that I don’t want to east in your rat hole of a bar” but I, being a civilized person of responsibility and taste, resisted and simply ordered a meal for my partner and me. A long while later, she returned with our meals and loudly slammed them on the table before us. We finished our meals in silence. We were both deep in thought about our perceived station in life, I suppose, and left without another word… or gratuity. We sat in the car in the parking lot for a moment and my partner said, “much as I hate dining in ‘the city’ (the name the locals use to refer to San Francisco)… we’d have been treated like customers”… to which I replied, “unless they knew we voted for Reagan twice and Bush once.”

    This is no surprise to me. The left is filled with hate. I just read online what they are doing to Nikki Minaj. She is a young female rapper that has risen to stardom. I am sure you  have heard of her. Sh e is also black. In one of her recent songs, if you can call it a song, she raps and says ” she is voting for Romney, because they are ruining the economy” A pretty close version of what she rapped. Well now to the fun part, The tweets of wishing she would die, and hundreds of horrible hate filled wishes to her demise. She will now be on this list your on.  This young rising star will now see her star get ripped out of the sky, stomped on and thrown away. WHY?? because she said the unpopluar amongst the haters. She called it as she sees it, and now she has seen first hand what it is like to be ” one of those”. Jesus faced this hate, and he said ” father forgive them for they know not what they do” The knew not what they did, because hate consumed them. Hate became a tattoo on their hearts, and they became instruments of the one who created hate. I am so sad to live in a country that accepts and rewards this behavior. Amercian Airlines will be boycotted by me from now on. Thank God there was some humaness in that man to not mistreat your children. Thank God you had the self restraint to hold your tongue, because he was trying to get you to react and you didn’t and that probably made him insane.  Stay the heck away from  New York and fly US Air.

    This is why America is crumbling in a sad way if people’s actions don’t change and change very soon I might add. I can’t even imagine being treated this way. Shame on you people who act like this just because you disagree with someone’s opinions. This is America people, the land of diversity and the country where freedom is supposed to be free. I would NEVER treat someone in this manner just because they disagreed with my values, my lifestyle, my choices. We are human beings and have a God-given right to live our lives how we choose, and even if we live totally different lives and don’t agree on anything we should never ever be ostracized for it. As children we are taught, hopefully, that we should never judge others and we should always treat others as we would like to be treated. I sincerely pray that this gentleman on American Airlines and those people who own those restaurants go home at night reflect on their day and ask themselves “Did I do everything I could this day to make others feel worthwhile? Did I do the right things to make my family proud of me? Was I a good role model for my children? Did I behave in a way that when my children speak to others they can say I want to be just like my parents?” If these people who treated Glenn in such a demeaning way did not have any remorse whatsoever for their hateful actions towards another human being then shame on them. Shame on us all if we EVER treated someone like this just because we didn’t agree with them. Shame!

    Glenn, you’re a public figure who spends all of his time and energy espousing conspiracy theories about the destruction of America (smearing people as communists and anti-American radicals), discrimination based on sexuality, and other angry, bigoted and patently false views. Don’t expect to be a well-liked man among people who disagree with you. I personally would never be rude to you if we met in person, but a gay flight attendant might … Peace and love.

    Dear Glenn,
    As I listened to your show this morning on the radio, my heart broke. You see I was a American Airlines flt. att. for 36 yrs., retired in 2006.  This is not the airline or employees that I once worked for/with and proudly served. As a former employee, I offer my sincere and heartfelt apology to you and your family and to any passenger who has been treated poorly by an A.A. employee. These types of stories sadden me greatly.
     I always enjoyed my passengers but of course there were those few exceptions.  However when I had encounter a “disgruntled passenger” I made every effort to understand their problem, and hopefully change their mind and become a loyal customer.  Not to offend any unhappy passenger but my mom said to me one time ” you can sure catch a lot more flies with sugar than salt” so I would try to make it my mission to turn these unhappy folks around by consistently offering a enjoyable, safe and memorable flt. experience and to understand why they had a bad one in the past.  All passengers/customers are important. They are the life blood and reason a company exists no matter what road in life a patron chooses to follow.
    I pray that this once proud and profitable airline will once again return to it’s high
     standard of service that I was trained under and so very proud of. 
    For all those current and future A.A. passengers make I thank you for your business and hope that you will not judge American by a few bad apples.  I loved my job when I flew and hoped it showed to all my customers as I was the representative of American and wanted to keep their business.  I feel this is why A. A. hired me in the first place.  Many employees do not work well with the general public and I understand this but please do not take a job that puts one front and center in public service if this be your case. Behind the scenes may be a better place for your service.
    I am only sorry I did not have the opportunity to serve you and your family on one of my flights. It would have been an honor and pleasure as it was with all my passengers.

    God Bless you, your staff and family for what you do to save this great country.
    A proud former A.A. flt. att.

  • PNW

     Mr. Beck, how is what you just said here any different than
    what the flight attendant did to you? Actually, it’s worse! Instead of just
    calling the flight attendant out, you threw the entire airline under the bus.  As you pointed out in your parting statement
    when leaving the aircraft, the flight attendant only treated YOU poorly, and
    not your entire family.  You no doubt
    feel insulted, hurt, and angered by the treatment you received. You are totally
    and completely justified in that. The conduct of that flight attendant was
    inexcusable and the incident should be reported to the company so that they can
    take the appropriate disciplinary action. You have a huge following…many people
    that seem to hang on your every word. I consider you very intelligent and
    appreciate many points that you make. This, however, was reckless. I truly
    think you could have made your point without having to chastise the entire airline
    over the conduct of one individual.  I’m
    reading through all the posts by readers/listeners who are cheering for you and
    declaring that they’ll never fly American Airlines again. What a shame. My CONSERVATIVE
    husband is employed by American Airlines. He’s a very hard-working person and
    treats others with the utmost respect, courtesy, and professionalism.  Your words here today will only serve to hurt
    the company as a whole…and all of those who work for the said company.  Please sir, in the future, think before your
    speak. There are so many listening. You have our attention…and the ability to
    make a difference where it truly needs to be made.

       You are not a captive on this site. Glenn Beck was, seated in the airplane. You do not have to pay to post here. He was a paying customer of AA. You did not pay for a service here. He was paying for service from AA. Passengers put their lives in the crews hands for several hours. Had there been an emergency, would Glenn Beck have been treated like everyone else? You may NOT get up and leave an airplane mid-flight. You are free to leave this website any time. No one will humiliate you for the two and half or three straight hours it takes to get from JFK to DFW, or make your family uncomfortable while you are posting here.

    This is an interesting glimpse into your life, Glenn. You are a famous personality. You have face value, people know who you are. I’m sorry you got treated so strangely on that flight but not at all surprised. Nor should you be. Liberals appear in degrees. I have dear liberal friends and we’re able to discuss our differences but also have other acquaintances too eager to shut my mouth and try to jam their ideology into my brain.
    Interesting that you started your commentary talking about Clint Eastwood. Only last week you ridiculed that man who stood up in front of the world and made a speech that will most likely end his career in the film industry. You joined in the voices against him, you and Stu and Pat. After all you’ve preached about this being America, respecting the wisdom of our elders, you made fun of his appearance, the content of his speech, his delivery, and suggested the Romney campaign would do well to distance itself from Clint.  Clint assured America that not all of Hollywood was liberal… there were others like him but they don’t go around ‘hotdogging’.  Now you know why. Interesting that this happened to you a few days after you disrespected Eastwood’s courage getting on that stage like you do every day in the studio. You got the cold shoulder and some crudeness from a male flight attendant and some dirty looks from people in NYC. Eastwood took on the liberal world and the liberal film industry the other night and you thought he was a disgrace. I wonder what he’d say about your comments today… and the ones you made the other day.  We can’t be fighting each other at this critical time to save our Republic.  
    I’m sorry you had a rough weekend. No one deserves to be treated like that but you’re not alone. We get it every time we open out mouths as conservatives. We’re just not as famous as you. WE hurt just as badly as you do… yes, do pray about it. Jesus said we’d be persecuted for following Him.. and surely enough all but one of His apostles were killed.  
    If nothing else, I hope this gives you pause to think about how all conservatives are treated not only on airlines or in public should we wear a tee shirt with a conservative message or park our car bearing a conservative bumper sticker, or when we write to out local papers as conservatives…. and get up in front of the world at the RNC as Clint Eastwood in support of the candidate running against a progressive/socialist president. Remember your words about Clint the other day, Glenn. Remember and learn.

    The attendant, or attendants, who exhibited this behavior and ill treatment of a paying passenger should be fired immediately.  An apology should be sent to Mr. Beck from the head of American Airlines, a public apology.  The lefties/libs/socialists, who like to portray themselves as the epitome of tolerance are, in fact, the most intolerant people of all.  They cannot abide other people having different opinions than the ones they have.  We all see them for what they are –  infantile, hate-filled, intolerant babies.

    It’s not American Airlines, Glenn, It was the individual flight attendant, and shame on him!  I am a retired AA captain, and flew with wonderful, professional cabin crews, but there are some very bad ones that care more about their own prejudices and politics than doing their job with pride.  You had the misfortune of having one of these as your flight attendant.  Please accept my apology for his conduct.  May I suggest you write a brief note to the CEO, giving your date of flight and flight number and letting Mr. Horton know how this slime ball treated you.  If it happened to you, it will happen to others and it needs to be addressed.  By the way, the end of flight “Thank You” announcement is supposed to be read on the PA.  As a Captain, I would want to know that this kind of treatment has taken place on my aircraft, and I pursued several instances of cabin attendant misconduct during my career, and I feel like your Captain would have done the same if you had made it known to him after the flight.  Obviously, you shouldn’t have to be subjected to such treatment, but as you are very painfully aware, this decaying, immoral culture of ours has changed all the rules of decorum and propriety.  Conduct of this type is part and parcel of the ramifications of this decay.  I would have been honored to have had you on my aircraft, but even if I didn’t necessarily agree with your (or anyone else’s) politics, I would have been furious to find out how a customer of ours had been so treated.  I don’t blame you for a second for not flying AA in the future, and I hope your experience on other carriers is professional and courteous, as ALL customers deserve.

      patriot2953-While I agree that this one individual may not be indicative of the entire airline bear in mind that not one other member of the crew intervened. Even in the largest of planes quarters are still close, other flight attendants had to have known what was happening and did nothing. I too have experienced poor service when flying AA, although nothing near what Mr. Beck experienced. I will not fly this airline ever again. There may be “good” people working at AA but trust me they are well hidden. Thank you for being one of the good ones but I can’t support a business with this kind of track record.

     Loved your comment except the first statement. There is a homosexual agenda. It pushes for special treatment in hiring, firing, marriage, contract law.

    I feel your pain.  You got in person what we all (including you, I’m sure) get on social media all the time, and in person must be so much more devastating.  May I demur on one point?  Why not give corporate American Airlines the opportunity to make this right, publicly, before blacklisting the airline.  It was one attendant that treated you so shabbily, and a bunch of other employees on the plane who probably didn’t have the courage to stand up to the bully … because that’s what he was.  You know, they have to get along with each other (that’s said with a somewhat snide emphasis, in case anyone doesn’t get it).  If you send a copy of that commentary to AA’s head honchos in Texas and they do not respond, blacklist to your heart’s (and ours) content.

    What totally baffles me is the great “middle ground” of Americans who are not mean and nasty but think that liberalism really does stand for tolerance, peace, and love all around.  Although they hear the continuous drumbeats bashing conservatives and telling how intolerant, mean, and evil we are, these days they are also being exposed to stories such as yours on a daily basis.  Somehow they do not make the comparison; they don’t recognize, or they choose to block, the obvious hypocrisy.  Why?  These are good people.  How can they not see evil dancing in front of their noses?  Fills me with despair.

    On another note, I hope there is a special place in Hell reserved for people like that, who delight in causing public humiliation … and for the “progressive” leaders urging them along.  Sorry, God.

  • Vickie Vila

    I heard you telling your radio audience about this just this morning. Unbelievable that someone could be so proud of being rude. Every business I have worked for, service business or not, would never tolerate an employee being rude to a customer OR to a fellow employee. 
    I hope this attendant is at least reprimanded for his intolerable behavior and terminated if it appears he is a repeat offender.
    Had I been on this airplane and witnessed this spectacle, I would have reprimanded the attendant myself. It is our responsibility, as fellow human beings, to stop abuse and bullying whenever and wherever we see it. No excuse.

    • Estella Bunny Howe

      Vickie, thank you for finally saying that “it is our responsibility as fellow human beings”, because that is exactly what is wrong with our society. No one wants to get involved; no one wants to take a stand for what they believe in and especially no one wants to get involved if something is controversial. Sad pathetic statement about our society. Wonder why there are so many abused children? This is one of the biggest reasons. So, thank you.

    powerful, Glen. I am so sorry you experienced this..but your story lifted me up because it affirms that it isn’t just me seeing this…that it is apparent to others as well.. I have seen so much anger and hatred coming from the liberal sector just in people I know on FB. Republicans have been labeled the American Taliban..and just yesterday I learned that we share common interests and beliefs with Hitler. I was so darn offended, I could feel my blood pressure come to a boil.  I do not consider myself a Republican or Democrat. I choose based on who and what I feel is best for my country. The animosity and hatred of the Democrats is down right scary..and it only makes it more imperative in my mind that we must get rid of the current administration.  I am so scared for our country’s future!

  • Cecil Norwood

     First, you are a Christian. Secondly, you are a Conservative. Thirdly, you are proud to be an American when others like that flight attendant think of our nation as a big turkey to be carved up… a harlot for the world to take advantage of. Glenn, you and I know that the pro-“diversity” crowd and pro-“tolerance” crowd have no interest in being diverse or tolerant.

  • Andy Miller

     Not true. There are many good homosexuals. The lobby/agenda folks, on the other hand, are some of the most vile, hateful people I have encountered.

    • Estella Bunny Howe

      Andy, not sure what prompted you to make the comment about “good homosexuals”, but I def agree with you. And, here’s why–THEY ARE PEOPLE TOO. And, contrary to many who think they are not Christians, YOU ARE SOOOO WRONG. And, FYI, I am a socially moderate Republican, a woman and I am happy to say that!! I take offense to Christians/Bible thumperswho if you will,who  condemn gays/lesbians and then tell you that ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE!! If so, then they are huge hypocrites.Here is one of the best examples I can think of in this regard–Ellen Degeneres. We all loved her before “she came out of the closet” (and what is with that stupid saying anyways) and then, bingo, over night, the hate mongers had a feeding frenzy. Not one thing had changed about her, IMHO. (Remember she was a lesbian all this time, nothing changed there). And, then we have the Chik fil A fiasco. All the CEO said was that he supported what he felt in his own mind was traditional marriage. Bingo!!! Same disgusting reaction. If this is what is meant by “embracing diversity”, well, as Glenn Beck said and Gov. Huck said as well, you know where you can shove it. To me it is about “compassion and compromise” but I don’t think you will get a lot of left wing liberals to agree or go along. And, one more thing, I do not despise Obama because he is black (he is not), I abhor his policies and politics. That does not make me a racist/bigot. It makes me a proud American and a proud moderate Republican. If you can’t respect that, than you are the one with the problem, not me. Sorry, Andy, I got a little off message here.

      Chester, you are a prime example of what is wrong here in America. Instead of admitting that no one should be treating another person (regardless of political or religious beliefs) like that AA employee treated Glenn, you decide to stand your stupid ground about political crap. The point of this issue is that no one should have to be treated like sub-human because of their political affiliation or religious beliefs. If you were treated in such a way for being a liberal, would you be ok if I decided to stand up for conservatism rather than stand by you as a human being? IS that what we’ve come to? We are no longer human? Is it more important to stand steadfast on the side of ideology rather than stand by a fellow human being that was obviously treated sub-par? Sounds like you need a triple dose of humanity sir.

    Glen beck, i feel like an old proud grandma! i am not any of those things, but i couldnt be prouder of you if you were one of my children. you have been given a platform and a voice to speak with, and i for one am so glad you did. 
    i used to work for southwest airlines one of the most liberal companies on the planet, but i can assure you that we would never ever treat anyone badly no matter what the color of thier skin or the opinion of our see at southwest they know with every fiber of the companies mind-set that the flying public votes with the pocketbook! they dont have the fanciest planes or the prettiest anything and that guarantees a bit of humbleness when you fly with them. i dont work for them anymore because of their super liberal policies regarding special rules for special people, but i will fly them for the rest of my days cuz i know that they will treat me right even when they dont want to! 
    being rude to a customer is a firing offense at southwest!

     Mr. Yentsch, that one person represents the company as a whole BY his service.  His actions have shown that your company apparently doesn’t like Glenn’s patronage and outwardly showed it (blatantly, mind you) in front of other passengers.  Glenn even hinted at it in front of the pilot after the flight had landed and yet the pilot apparently said  nothing.

    Just curious ….  Why didn’t you name the 2 restaurants (the BBQ place and where you ate breakfast)?  Guess that wouldn’t get you as much publicity.   I’m glad to see the flight attendant was kind to your children.  It’s not like you don’t ever have anything negative to say about the world around you.  Come on.  Grow up.  You prayed!  I hope it was to give you a kinder and gentler voice on your next topic.  What, was the flight attendant Gay?  Therefore, you were uber sensitive.  All airlines are subject to the “you owe me Mr. Flyer attitude” !!!

Mostly what I get is that if we don’t stop embracing diversity and start embracing “compassion and compromise” we are not going to survive. Diversity is fine in it’s over all meaning but like Obama usurps everything else this word has undergone the same thing. I, too, have a passionate belief; and as many times as I have even had to listen to nastiness from within my own family, I will continue to believe and speak up/out in the hope that others will “get it”!!  Or will at least have the respect to allow me to have my beliefs!!!

  • Brandon Colton

    I must say. If it is an individual whom treats us badly based on the collective views. And perhaps we feel powerless, the solution is simple. Take names and Id’s and photos. And post them on sites for others to see who they truly are. Perhaps a person like a Flight Captain or a person with authority will not like seeing their own behavior posted. Many of these thugs think no one is watching and they will not be held accountable. It will often amaze us how people change when they realize they are being watched. Christ is engraved on our hearts, thus allowing us to know when our behavior is godly or not. Perhaps these people need to be “Shown” their behavior from others eyes.

    God Bless You Glenn

    People never fail to amaze me— for their acts of kindness and beligerance ! I guess the businesses must side with and condone certain behaviours from their employees. One wonders if they receive GOLD stars for this type of discourtesy or if the left actually RUN these outfits? I am very tempted to call ahead and ask my intended hotel, restaurant, air carrier (I’d rather rent an airworthy plane and fly myself), etc. whether I will have a problem with them due to my past military service, conservative or religious beliefs, my looks or age.  It is definitely NOT the same world of Jefferson, Adams and Madison! Human nature, though, remains somewhat consistent!

  • Gordon Lincoln

    When someone is treating you well below a common standard of service decency, take their photo – record a brief review of the service you received, send it to the customer service department. If you don’t get an apology in a reasonable time frame – post it on YouTube with a title something like American Airlines Bad Service or American Airlines Sucks.  These tactics do two things – American Airlines will hate it (as they should) and if yours is not an isolated incident, other people will add their voice to the complaints and soon it will become a roar that will be heard in the CEO’s office and the next BOD meeting.

    First off, I am sorry that you and your family, any
    family, should ever be treated in such a manner. I have not flown AA in over 25
    year. I will not go into the specifics but I found everything from ticket
    purchase, to flight, to luggage, to airline attendants to be most unacceptable.
    Since 911, I will not fly with AA or US Air (is that airline still flying?)
    because of fear of these airlines being targeted by terrorists. But I’m not
    happy flying United either. United treats the first class quite lovely, but
    treats the coach class like cattle. I know, I have flown both many times with
    United. It is a whole different world up in first class. Honestly, I prefer
    South West when flying coach. They don’t have a class distinction. They are
    friendly with everyone. I also find their planes much cleaner.

    When it comes to rude behavior directed toward a
    patron, AA isn’t alone. We lived in Hawaii for 4 years and we (family and
    friends) were subjected to much abuse from the Asian population out there. We
    were told that it was our fair skin and blue eyes. Besides verbal insults,
    pushing and hateful stares; often they would do their best not to serve us at
    all. Several times I had shopped for clothing and the girl behind the counter
    would help everyone but me. I would be standing there with a stack of cloths to
    purchase and she would blatantly help the next person in line, doing her best to
    avoid me. I quickly learned not to shop certain stores (major dept. stores and
    the Asian stores and restaurants) and I chose carefully where to spend my

They will have lawsuits to answer to because this is the 3rd case I’ve heard in 2 months and that’s only because the victims were either celebrities or known to me through other channels.

  • Robin

       I am so sorry to hear that an American Airlines employee treated you so poorly (pathetically). And I see by the many POSTED COMMENTS to your story, that they had similar incidences, especially those treated badly from the military. What a disgrace!
       I used to work for AA and always held them in high regard and do my best to always use AA when I fly – The last few AA flights I was on I even saw military seated in 1st class – I loved that and was able to thank them for their service as I went back to my seat.   
       The hateful (customer offensive) actions may be isolated incidences, BUT the culprits should have all been REPORTED and FIRED, with a letter of apology sent to the customer, the customer is always, always right.  But if those who work for AA and witness these things, don’t stand up for what is right, then we must conclude that these are the feelings of American Airlines as well.
       I am so ashamed of AA and I too will take my business elsewhere.  Another good example of appeasing hate (evil), it just spreads…

    Despite agreement with or opposition to your (Mr. Beck) or the flight attendant’s belief’s or practices, rude behavior to a customer is not appropriate.  Whenever I encounter customers who are behaving inappropriately, I do NOT treat them the same way.  The flight attendant should NOT have behaved in such manner.  I would have obtained statements from other passengers, used a telephone or other device to record the incident, posted the evidence on YouTube or FaceBook (or this site), or revealed this obsurd behavior openly.  Then I would have DARED AA to deny and DEMAND an apology for the airline AND the attendant.  I strongly encourage you to “call out” AA with this issue.  Obtain he name of the attendant (it won’t be to hard to obtain), and obtain statements from other passengers.

     I am sorry you were mistreated and I don’t consider that you, or anyone else, deserves that kind of mistreatment, especially when paying for a service.  Hopefully, AA will see fit to FIRE that “attendant” person and if he is from another country, maybe he should return there where he can be happy.  We don’t treat people that way in American.  He’s got it all wrong.  I stopped flying American Airlines years ago when they flew us on various flights, to various cities and all day, all day, all we were fed were peanuts.  We had two children with us and no food to feed them.  I was indignant and disgusted with how low they had fallen in their service and this was several years ago. 

  • Donna Davis McDonald

    I’m so sorry this happened to you and your family.  It is never right that any human ever be treated in that manner especially in a “business”.  There are just no words, and lot’s of prayers…It grieved me to know my grand children may face more than this if America doesn’t turn back to her roots and founding…….God help us all…..BTW, you did great to turn the other cheek as you did……..THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO TO UNITE US AND REMIND US WHERE/WHAT AMERICA WAS BIRTHED FROM.

  • Jason Kritikos

    Glenn, I have no idea why you would waste your time and money in NYC when there are so many places were you would be welcomed with open arms.  Personally, I would write-off that toliet and let them founder in their own hate and venomous spew.

    I think by bringing this story about American Airlines to light, it will hopefully result in this chucklehead being pulled aside by management and being read the riot act.  ALL customers should be treated with courtesy and respect – regardless if the customer is Glenn Beck or Van Jones or Mr. Hollywood Big-Shot or Joe Sixpack.  The fact that AA does not instruct their personnel (hello – this is the face of your company!) in this basic tenet of customer service on Day 1 of Flight Attendent School, gives me pause when selecting an airline which is not Southwest (my fave).  Thanks for sharing the story – I know where I will not be spending my money!

    Being from the DFW area, I have been loyal to American Airlines, to the tune of about 480,000 miles, according to my AAdvantage Account. However, after seeing this I have decided to choose another airline for future travel. I stand with Glenn in full support of “my right to choose.”

  • Judy LaVallee

    There are going to be people in this world that hate you for standing up for what is right.Who cares what they think, there is right and wrong and that’s all there is to it! I know things are going to get worse, because more than anything there is a spiritual war going on. So, the only one you should be worried about what they think is God. We are going to have to develop a really thick skin. I know that even some of your own family members may turn against you and that’s going to hurt the most, so be it. God keeps score. In the end everything is for correction, God corrects those that He loves, as  my pastor says”kiss the paddle”.

    Glen Beck, above: “I’m tired of being treated as a criminal, a disease, mentally challenged, stupid, or subhuman just because I happen to believe.”

    Glen Beck, at CPAC: “We’re putting a documentary out called, “Progressivism: America’s Cancer.” It is an in-depth look at how progressives threw America way off track around the turn of the century.”
    But yeah, Glen…you’re the victim here. Poor you.

    I’m so ashamed of how people treat you and your family. You and your family should be allowed to have an opinion without needing security or concerned about how you’ll be treated. Those people copping an attitude, making threats, treating you like dirt-those are the real cowards, my friend. You’re the brave one-the real hero. You’re my hero and I mean that and am PROUD to say it!! You’re a hero because you dare, rather, you are BRAVE enough to stand up and speak the truth. Life would be so much easier for you if you weren’t as strong and brave as you are. Whats the fun in that?! :) Seriously though, the American people wouldn’t be awakened to the crap that is happening. No one would even question this administration. You know, last election, I was verbally assaulted on a daily basis for not being an Obama support. Because I didn’t plaster my front lawn with Obama signs, I was called a “racist” by even my closest friends. My facebook wall became a trail of ugly rants by people who hated me for my choice to vote McCain. I’m a graphic artist and energy healer. I work in a very liberal industry. I’m a freaking business owner in this liberal industry! Had it not been for you being the brave man you truly are, I don’t know if I’d have the gonads to share my political opinions and concerns with anyone. If it weren’t for the Tea Party Patriots, I think I would feel alone in my concerns and opinions. Especially when my “President” is so casual about making inappropriate jokes and comments about “people like me”. I’d vote Glenn Beck for President but I’m terrified that if you got voted in, they’d feed you to the lions. You’re too cute to be lion food and we need someone stong and inspiring like you to save out nation. I also don’t think you’d be doing America the amount of good that you’re doing her as you are now. You inspire and rally the American people that truly care about our nation. You educate the public at the risk of your own life and comforts. You’re an amazing individual and I support you full throttle, Baby! There are more of us than we all know. We just need to make the silent ones less afraid to stand up and defend our freedom. We are making a difference. I’m still getting called a “racist”/ “tea bagger” and “shame on me for thinking the economy is more important than gay marriage.” It’ll be a VERY long election and plenty of mud to go around but it’s only because you’re hitting the hot buttons. Your cracking the ceiling and it’s about to cave in. All those people will see the light soon enough. Much love and light to you and yours. You have friends in Maryland.

  • Catherine L Thompson

    In 2001 when our son, and his fellow soldiers, were being deployed to Iraq, the pilot of the commercial jet taking them to Kuwait emailed me this photo. I almost failed to open it because I did not recognize the email address. They had our son and those with him moved to first class and then the pilot himself sent me this photo thanking me for my son’s service! The young man on the far right had lost his eye in an accident, but chose to deploy with his unit rather than stay back. He was given the option to wait but he went with his fellow soldiers. From reading your story I am sure they were not on an American Airlines flight!

    Glenn, I’m sorry for the way you were treated in NYC and on American Airlines. But, you have chosen a path that will often put you at odds with the masses. They don’t want to hear the truth. They don’t want to hear anything that differs from their liberal agenda. Jesus said it best, “In this world you will have tribulations, but be of good courage, I have over come the world.” This world system is not our home, so don’t be surprised when we’re treated like intruders. God Bless you in your work, because you do it as “unto God”.

    All I can say is that I am sorry for your hurt…and for the hurt your wife and children have felt.  Shame on those individuals.  Shame on them.  It is truly a sad day, when another individual feels so compelled to behave in such a manner.  What is happening to our society?  
    I have lost touch with your since your departure of Fox News.  I have missed your insight, intelligence and your ability to articulate the happenings of today.  
    I am so sorry that people don’t understand your willingness to share, so as to help us really see what is going on around us in this world.

    AA screwed up one of my very important flights a few years ago and refused to make it right or to compensate me for the money I lost because of it.  It is my understanding they are in talks with United Airlines right now.  I just flew United on an international flight and was very well taken care of.  Perhaps United can make some very necessary changes to the AA attitudes.  The treatment you received, Glenn, is unforgivable!

  • Denise

    Wow, Mario, the number of ways you can misrepresent the conservative stand on an issue! Impressive! 

    First, Medicare was a program designed for people to pay into in order to gain benefits upon retirement. It was never designed to be a stop-gap for every malady down the line for anyone outside of retirees. That was the beginning of the misuse of the program. It’s not the fault of the elderly who PAID INTO IT. It’s the fault of the politicians who decided to dip into money that didn’t belong to them to use it for other things. Blame them. 

    Second, most conservatives aren’t as against the teaching about condoms as they are FOR the teaching of responsible behaviour and holding people to a higher standard of behaviour than they do a common animal. But since the public school system insists on teaching our children they’re nothing but highly evolved animals instead of the precious, unique, SEPARATE creations of a supreme God, and therefore unable to control their urges, that same system feels the ONLY thing that will work to stem teen pregnancy is a condom. Of course, little Tommy and Susy can’t control themselves because they’re just evolved rabbits, right? 

    I’m not going to go on. The above comment of mine is more a vent than it is anything like having hope that you’ll grow a sense of logic any time soon. Oh well…hope springs eternal. Sheesh.

    Well, I was going to ask them to sponsor Fire Department Honor Guard units at next year’s National Championship in Indianapolis.

I would rather have fewer teams able to attend than support such behavior. Oh and my peroonal travel choices for my unit just became much clearer.

  • Jason Kritikos

    No, it’s called being treated with professional courtesy.  When people aren’t treated with professional courtesy by the staff of a business, they will spend their money elsewhere.  When the money goes elsewhere, the business will suffer and employees of that business, along with their contractors and subcontractors, may lose their jobs.  Now, is it not in everyone’s best interests to provide a superior product with superb service? Is that not a win-win situation for everyone involved?  Think about it!

  • Jane Wells

    As the last days approach we can expect much worse than this to happen to us as believers in Jesus Christ.  The Scripture is full of verses that say that and Jesus said most of it to His disciples.  I will  paraphrase: The world will hate you, You will suffer many things for My sake, Blessed are you if you suffer for my sake, and so much more.  Only through Christ living His life in and through us can we respond in love.  I pray the church of Christ is ready for what is to come just as Jesus exhorted us to prepare.

    I think overall, airline service has declined trmendously since the heyday of the 60’s and ’70’s. Flying a a 747 for the first time in 1972, I remember that coach class service then was far better than first class service today. Glenn, next time, take Amtrak…..much more civilized way to travel!

  • Peyton Duncan

    Thank You Glen..having lived in Texas, I had always flown American Airlines and while I have moved away, American Airlines has remained my first choice..schedule permitting. As a matter of fact I recently flew American Airlines to visit family…I had no idea it would be the last time I fly American Airlines, until just this second. I can’t in good conscience give money to any company that treats their customers as bad as this, based on color, gender, religion or political views.

    Glenn you need to wake up!!! Not only is New York this way but Philly and DC are the same.  I will never in my life return to either place.  I am past making excuses for the vile behavior of these cities.  The only people that treated me with respect in Philly were a large group of homeless people pushing around their shopping carts full of their lifes possessions.  I had return from visiting my elderly aunt in Norristown and came in on a late nite train.  I had to exit up a deep stairwell because the main gate was closed.  When I came out onto the dark street, I realized I was lost and didn’t know which way to turn to get to my Hotel.  From out of the dark came about 8-10 homeless.  They knew I was in the wrong place and they made sure I got back to my Hotel safely.  I will forever think fondly of that night.  But the rest of my 10 day stay was a horror.  The staff at the Museum of Art were so rude that I walked out after about 10 minutes.  I can honestly say that Philly has lost all manners.  My father was born and raised in Philadelphia and moved to the south when he got out of the Army.  It was a sad time to see how the city of his birth had evolved.

    Powerful piece Glen. Sorry that you had to experience that. It did remind me of the kind of treatment that minorities received early on in the civil rights movement. It’s a shame that liberals and other groups (LGBT for example) can’t see that they are acting in the exact same way they claim to abhor. Conservatives and Christians are the new “minority”, sub-human and not deserving of dignified treatment.
    You have been shedding light on things that liberals don’t want “in the light of day” A lot of people I know have negative attitudes about “Glen Beck” although they have never watched. They are judging by what others SAY about Glen Beck. You are being attacked because you are effective. I remember when I was watching your TV program a few years ago and you had the giant picture of George Washington? made out of a bunch of individual pictures that people had sent in. That was very powerful for me because I realized that I was not alone and that there were many others in this country, who felt like I did and were concerned about the same issues that I was. It gave me hope that maybe there was enough of us to make a difference.
    Please keep telling the truth, it is important that more than just one side be heard. Sometimes the truth can be divisive, but we have to proclaim it anyway.
    God Bless you and your family.

    They don’t promote liberal views or encourage sex? Really? 

    Typical sex education speil today: “We want to keep you from making unwise choices and getting pregnant, so here’s the anatomy of the sex organs. This is what happens to make pregnancy occur. The process creates a highly pleasurable sensation for both parties, but don’t do it! You could get pregnant! But if you DO (nudge, nudge, wink, wink), use a condom! Because we know that sometimes, you just can’t help yourselves, if you use a condom, you won’t get pregnant. But if you DO get pregnant, you can get the morning after pill or a government-sponsored abortion.” Reality, Mario. Stick with reality. The same schools that teach evolution as practically a religion, can’t find a way to teach kids how to control their urges. And their only pre-pregnancy protection is a condom, which has been shown to have as high as a 15% failure rate. You want to get on a plain that only has an 85% chance of landing safely? So why would a conscientious parent EVER want to send their children in to get an education from people who are more interested in furthering a political ideology than looking out for the future happiness of their children? You have been SO brain-washed! Geez!

    My letter to AA:


    I am contacting you with respect to a story I read today
    regarding the vile treatment a passenger of AA had inflicted on him simply
    because he was a well-known conservative,  and your flight attendant was a
    liberal. This person received the most degrading and humiliating treatment, and
    the only passenger singled out in this fashion.  I am about to make reservations
    to Hawaii and,
    being a conservative myself, I wanted to make sure this isn’t a new corporate
    policy of AA.  I certainly would not want to endure 13 hours of such despicable
    service simply because of my dearly-held political beliefs.  So, if AA is now
    abusing those they determine to be politically-incorrect passengers, I would
    like to know before I purchase a ticket.  And, yes, the passenger so miserably
    treated on your airline was Glenn Beck.

    Dear Glen, I am sorry for the way you were treated on American Airlines. My husband and I think you are great. But to judge a whole airline because of one individual who definitely needs classes in customer service. I think is wrong. He should have been reported and fired because of the way you were treated. I know many wonderful people who believe as you do that work for this airline. I myself as a new employee for American Eagle. I admire you for standing up and teaching what you believe in. If more american people would take a stand like you have our country would not be in the mess we are in now. I believe God puts special people out there in each generation to spread his word and I believe you are on of those special people. But There are people who are just plain evil and they are also out there everywhere. Not just on American Airlines.  God bless you Glen Beck.      Julie Ferris

    I’m going to go out on a limb here, & guess that the flight attendant was likely offended because you support Chick-fil-A.

    You modeled Jesus this weekend, Glenn, by speaking truth with compassion and turning the other cheek.  You honored your family by reacting as you did and praying as you did.  Come to Alabama any time you want…we like people who model Jesus–and we will love on your family, too!  :)
    As Jesus said to his disciples: “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.  If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own.  As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.  That is why the world hates you.” (John 15:17-19)

    I’m a top tier AA customer and am appalled with the purposeful disrespect toward Glenn by anyone at AA. I have sent an email to AA to see if they will, or intend to, fire the flight attendant responsible. A repremand won’t do. I’ll post their answer when I hear back.

    My Dear Mr. Beck: I heard you tell most of this on the radio this am. I feel really sad that there are people who hate just for hating and have no SPECIFIC reason for hating. I have a liberal friend who has never seen any of your TV programs, but ridicules you and “hates” you just for the idea of it, I guess. It saddens me a great deal; I was brought up to believe that we all should treat others with politeness and courtesy, even if we think we “hate” them….the no man is any better than any other man, since we were created equally by God.
    You are really a controversial figure and so will generate a lot of feeling/opinions about who or what you are. I believe the flight attendant was wrong…..I’d have asked “What did I ever do to you?” I’m often left bewildered by people’s treatment of each other.
    On another note, I do not choose to fly any more because I believe there is not “customer service” to be found in the airlines. They most all treat the customer in a  rude and arrogant manner. If I can’t drive there, I just don’t go. Take care; you are well thought of in this household.

    Wow, that’s really a sad story to hear that people are so hateful to Glenn and his family just going about their daily lives.  

    With the DNC starting their convention this week that they formerly dubbed: 

    “The People’s Convention”

    …it’s now even more obvious that their party has nothing to do with the people…and, it has everything to do with hatred of people.  Democrats are the party of anger; the party of division and the party of HATE!

    Just curious ….  Why didn’t you name the restaurants where you ate?  Guess it wouldn’t get as much attention.  Guess blasting AA gets more attention.  This is the “You owe me everything” generation of flyers.  Your flight attendant must have been gay, that’s why you had to make such a big deal.  I’m glad he treated your children well.  All airlines have to put up with the flying public thinking they are owed something just for flying.  Take Greyhound next time.  See if you even get a soda.

    Thanks for speaking up. I hate bad service. If a restaurant gives bad service or rudeness, we don’t go back, why should we continue to give our business to rude companies who support and allow poor service. Regardless of your beliefs or theirs, business is business. When I work for a company, I represent them. If I don’t, I lose my job. If American Airlines refuses to remove people like that, then they deserve the loss of revenue. As far as persecution, get used to it. Read revelations. It is very intense in some countries and it is now becoming more prevalent here. The times are changing, Christianity is now the unpopular belief and we are now called haters, bigoted and intolerant. If we stand up for what we believe it is bound to get worse. If we don’t then we need to change our names, because Jesus said there would be persecution. Blessed are you when you are persecuted for righteousness sake. You just got blessed. Fun huh? :) Other countries have been going through this for years. We as a nation escaped it in the past because we were the dominant religion, but now it’s become unpopular to be a Christian. Unless we find a way to show Jesus to people, we have failed. Pray for the steward, bless him, release him into God’s hands and have an awesome day anyway. You are blessed and a man with a mission. Oh, by the way, not supporting AA is not unchristian, its expected. You don’t have to do business with poorly run businesses who don’t know how to have a good business. Love you Glenn and even though I don’t know your family, I appreciate their sacrifice and support for what you do. They must be some pretty special people to put up with all the harassment. At least they know they loved in Texas and guess what, right here in Idaho too. I am a strong supporter and believe in what you are doing. Keep up the good work and don’t be surprised when people respond to the Christ in you. They persecuted Jesus, they will persecute you too if you do what he did and say what he said. They would not come to the light because the loved the darkness. Keep bringing truth and light.

    I feel your pain, but I wish you had gotten his name and reported him to his superiors.  I happen to know an AA pilot who is probably to the right of you.  I bet there are many who agree with you.  Are you sure you should throw the entire company under the bus as a result of one stupid, ignorant, ill-mannered jerk?  PLEASE get him into some trouble.

    This makes me so very sad.

It’s all or nothing to them and truth and common sense have very little to do with any of it. I will not fly American and I have no desire to go NY.

    I would have politely asked his name, then as a Platinum American Advantage member I would have requested that his activities be noted and that if they wished to continue to have me as a paying customer his employment would either be terminated or he was given the worst routes to the least populous places with all his turn around stays being is such a city.  Then if they refused there are mesne other airlines to choose from, as well as charter services which aren’t that much more expensive that 5 or 6 airline tickets, and have a lot less hassle as well because you can leave when you are ready (and can get a takeoff slot)…

Be strong as there will be many more times of hate and anger before our Lord returns!

    When Delta closed their hub at DFW years ago, I was dragged kicking and screaming to American Airlines despite the fact that I had tried to give them my business on several occassions prior to that point in time.  As one of the business travelers that travels through DFW weekly throughout the year, it’s no small group of petty grievances that brings me to clain that American provides some of the rudest and most arrogant customer service I’ve seen in the industry.  Despite my entrapment on American for years now and as Executive Platinum this year, I will give it up to get back to someone, anyone that comprehends the definition of customer service.  Based on this incident, it’s beyond their comprehension at American Airlines.  What I wouldn’t have given to be their and witness what they did to Glenn.  I would not have been silent.

    The email I sent to AAl: I just want to put America Airlines on notice that I WILL NOT give my business to a company who’s policies are a degradation to our nations progress in civilized behavior. If GLEN BECK is to be treated like he is an animal for his view points, then I will make it a point not to fly with this company ever again. My sentiments would be the exact same if it were Anderson Cooper being treated the same way by a company for his personal view points. If a person pays you money and you take it in return for a service you offer, then you should provide the service to that person in the same manor you provided it to every other person whose money you have taken. I will be watching very closely to see how American Airlines handles this situation. I promise you, neither me nor my family nor many of my friends will never fly American Airlines ever again if they do not properly take care of this employee who could not control his emotions as a normal human being should be able to.

    My thoughts…….American Airlines didn’t treat Glenn this way.  An employee did.  I find it amusing that someone so intelligent makes the choice to blame an entire company rather than the individual that offended him.  I agree it was wrong for him to be treated that way.  But it is also wrong to blame a company for 1 persons actions.  Did Glenn file a complaint with the airlines so that they could address this with the employee?  From what I am reading no he did not. Instead he has decided to attack the company,

    • PJSTX

       Flight attendant decided to entertain the other passengers with the public reviling of Glenn Beck. More than any other group, flight attendants represent their airline, their employer’s policies in the area of customer relations. I guess you think Mr. Beck and family should have slunk off the airplane with their heads down and tried to contact customer service?
      Bet that’s just what you would do huh?
      No. The AA employee was certainly public about making his opinions known while operating in AA’s name, taking a paycheck from every ticket holder INCLUDING the Beck’s, and sending a deliberate message to the rest of the paying public who were part of a captive audience.

      Must be ok with American Airlines.

  • Sara Rose Thurgood

    Glenn (if I may be so bold as to address you by your first name, and assuming you read this),

    I had always thought highly of American Airlines, until today.  I remember a family vacation to Utah we took when I was about seven, and how we were delayed in DFW for over six hours.  We’d played quietly and stayed close to our parents, and one of the flight attendants noticed.  She saw the white rings around our eyes from our ski goggles and asked if “[we] raccoons” would like an upgrade to first class for being so well behaved.  I’m sure the relief and gratitude was apparent on my parents’ faces as we were ushered into our plush seats and treated with ginger-ale in champagne glasses.  I’d always thought that kind of service was reflective of the company in general, until today.

    I have filed a formal complaint with American that we will no longer be flying with them until this matter is addressed and rectified.  NO ONE should be treated as you were, regardless of political inclinations (or for any other reason, for that matter!).  I am so sorry you were treated so vilely.  I assure you, were I to have been serving as your flight attendant, I would have gushed like a seven-year-old girl with Bieber fever (probably to the neglect of the OTHER passengers).  But we can’t wear our political leanings as visibly as we can our sunburned, “raccoon” faces.  I wonder, perhaps I should fly American and let the attendants know from the get-go that I support you and your family 100%; after all, it’s only fair that they know who they’re serving and who’s “deserving” of their disdain.

    Warm regards,

    Sara Thurgood

    Because I’m in the Music Business, I know exactly what kind of blacklisting goes on…it’s happened to me personally in Denver. There are a few conservatives that I perform in bands with but 80% of the people I work with are liberals. Two agencies sent bands from Denver to both the RNC and the DNC this week. I wasn’t called for either one and it’s not because of my ability to play music, I’m one of the only performers in this town that’s played on a Grammy nominated record. They don’t call me because I proudly spout my conservative and Christian beliefs all over Facebook and Twitter and they hate me because of it and don’t call for the big paying gigs…

At least you are honest to yourself, which is something most people are not. Don’t give up hope. Mitt can change some of it.

    Glenn, I am speechless ( which doesn’t happen that often) As a Mormon, with conservative views, I have found of late when engaging with ‘ liberals ‘ or ppl from other faiths, the attitude taken because of my stance and belief system is met with anger, degrading remarks about my church and our practices, While I can be tolerant , respectful and polite, I get attacked. I have notice this trend with other true Christian friends as well. True Christians, no matter what church, act accordingly so( like Christians). People who get riled up against so called intolerance become themselves what they claim to hate, intolerant. I am sorry your family had to endure this kind of treatment my friend, and one can hardly blame you for wanting to never go to New York again. I live in Texas, isn’t it a great state?  Hang in there Buddy, You are not alone in this type of singling out. Am grateful you have a voice and speak up. Thank You for that, we ( our country, in fact the world ) need truth to be spoken . You handled your self with dignity and respect and by far was the better man in that situation with the American Airlines.

    This was one of the most entertaining, laugh out loud cry sessions from glenn beck.  glenn beck is such a little bitch.  he feels he is entitled to have everyone kiss his ass because surrounds himself with spineless wimps. 
    That being said, let us look at the lies and specifics of his cry fest…
    1.  glenn didn’t live in NYC.  glenn beck lived inside of a gated community in Connecticut. LIAR!!!
    2. It is no surprise  a minority owned business treated him differently (of course there is no proof of this!!!).  glenn is a proven racist.  Why should minorities treat a racist with respect?
    3.  glenn beck tries to play the martyr, which is comical noting the evil things his says about anyone who doesn’t agree with him.

    glenn beck shouldn’t waste any time attacking NYC or AA.  If glenn’s stories are true, which is doubtful after his made up story about watching a outdoor film in NYC, I admire the restraint shown towards a racist, bigoted and evil man.

    To finish, I highly doubt that glenn beck was treated improperly.  He is a proven liar and martyr. 

    • Sara Rose Thurgood

       1.  He lived in the NY area b/c he *worked* in NYC for five years.  Not a lie–how many people who don’t live in the city limits say they “live” in NY b/c they work and play there?  It’s a pretty common euphemism.

      2.  Glenn Beck is pretty much the most color-blind political pundit you’ll meet.  Have you ever actually *read* anything he’s written, or listened to anything but the edited, doctored sound bites from the liberal MSM?  Start thinking for yourself before resorting to ad hominem attacks on the man.

      3.  I listen to Glenn Beck regularly and have yet to hear him say anything remotely as derogatory as what has been said to him (and on posts such as this).  Sure he disagrees with folks, and often he jests about opposing POVs (maybe you need to work on your sense of humor).  How is a man who has donated literally millions of dollars to various charities, including our wounded warriors, and rallied Americans in the name of service to and love of their fellow man even remotely evil?  Answer, he’s not.

      YOU sir (or ma’am) are the proven liar–had you done just an ounce of reading outside the canon of liberal dogma–you’d know the truth about Glenn Beck and his record of humanitarianism, regardless of his political leanings.  Besides which, do you *REALLY* think that ANYONE should be treated so vilely on a flight, a place that is small, cramped, and inescapable?  Would YOU want to be treated as such, by someone like me?  Not that I would–as a conservative who tries diligently to love my fellow man, I’d be as kind to you as my stomach would allow.

        I’m not sure who you’re talking to. Glenn can have whatever opinions he wants. My point was simply that he’s an asshole so he sometimes gets treated like one.

        As near as I can tell, his big beef is that 1) someone looked at him funny at a BBQ place 2) the stewardess said “breakfast?” instead of “would you like some breakfast?” and 3) they didn’t open his coke for him.

        Sounds like a self-important, entitled prick got treated like a self-important, entitled prick. That tends to happen.

            Sorry, you were saying things about me that clearly had nothing to do with my comments, so I thought you might be speaking to someone else.

            I’ve flown AA many times and not been treated this way, so I’m pretty sure it’s just the assholes that they treat like assholes.

            Personally, I applaud them for not putting up with his shit. They’ve won a customer for life in me.

             That’s 3 times you called him an asshole and you have yet to explain why he is an asshole…You are the typical, brain dead, ignorant, self absorbed, angry, moronic liberal. I feel sorry for you, you can’t handle different opinions. Do you put a bubble around you and only let those in who agree with everything? How sad…but, this is an Obama world I guess…the crazies like yourself are everywhere. You’re probably the guy at the sports stadium throwing bottles at the other teams fans aren’t you?

            Ah, there’s that heavyweight intellectualism I’ve come to expect from Glenn’s fans.

            The examples are too numerous to list, but below are a few. Sounds like an asshole to me.

            “When I see a 9/11 victim family on television, or whatever, I’m just like, ‘Oh shut up’ I’m so sick of them because they’re always complaining.” –”The Glenn Beck Program,” Sept. 9, 2005

            “The only [Katrina victims] we’re seeing on television are the scumbags.” –”The Glenn Beck Program,” Sept. 9, 2005

            “I’m thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. … No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong?”, “The Glenn Beck Program,” May 17, 2005

            “I think there is a handful of people who hate America. Unfortunately for them, a lot of them are losing their homes in a forest fire today.” –on why people who lost their homes in forest fires in California had it coming, “The Glenn Beck Program,” Oct. 22, 2007

            “So here you have Barack Obama going in and spending the money on embryonic stem cell research. … Eugenics. In case you don’t know what Eugenics led us to: the Final Solution. A master race! A perfect person. … The stuff that we are facing is absolutely frightening.” –”The Glenn Beck Program,” March 9, 2009

            Finally! If you want to refer to comments Glenn has made back in 2005 which you of course are taking out of context as expected, then boy do I have a list of asshole comments made by Obama. I guess that would make him the biggest asshole of them all now wouldn’t it…but I’m sure you couldn’t get yourself to admit that, could you. Oh and Biden well, he’s a close second. Your bias is really showing.

            I never intended or attempted to hide my bias.

            As I said, I don’t have the time or desire to find every statement that Glenn Beck has made that defines him as an asshole. That was just a quick googling. I stopped paying attention to him years ago, as did most others capable of complex reasoning. And, now I’m going to stop paying attention to you, as well.

    There are rude and unprofessional people in every profession and in every service industry. You address them directly, ask them to correct their deficienies and be polite, When they continue, you ask to see their supervisor or ask to be assigned another person. Good for you for taking it and not freaking out like many other celebrities; bad for you for nevertheless trying to turn it into your own cause celebre and dissing an entire airline on the basis of one employees horrid behavior.

    Unbelievable! But then…not really. C’mom Glenn don’t you know one of the most popular liberal mottos: “Bigotry and prejudice are evil unless they’re against selfish bastards,
    in which case they’re good.” It’s how many liberals justify their despicable behavior these days. I read another one on Facebook the other day, “Republicans hate women! And I just hate people who hate!”  Or how about this one, “I have no tolerance for intolerant people, unless of course it’s my intolerance because my intolerance is justified!” I think that sums it up, no?

  • Cecile

    As a former Flight Attendant, I would like to apologize to you for the actions of one obviously lost individual.  No one should have to endure such treatment.  I pray you can rest in the fact that you are human and sometimes have an outburst that may no seem proper, and that you are forgiven.  I don’t know about the airline being liberal or not.  I do know that there are delays, and trials on most airline carriers now a days.  Restrictions are terrible.  Understandable but terrible.  I always enjoy your “opinions.”

    No you should not be polite to people who chose to be rude to you in public. In my 25 years in the service (Navy in support of the Marines) I was fortunate enough to only have to remind some that I was first a “warrior” and not to be treated harshly on two occasions. I never expect obsequesness but since I give respect I expect respect. I would not have, and will not, allow such behavior. As you have said many times Mr Beck. “Words(and actions) have consequences”. I often flew in uniform and never received anything but kindness from all around me. I was often the guy blowing up balloons for kids on the planes (provided by the airline). I served three tours in Vietnam and though I heard of people spitting on returning service members it never happened to me or to anyone around me. I thought at the time how silly such behavior would be on the part of a spitter. Presumably the “baby-killer” is just returning from a combat zone and would not be a stranger to killing. Spitting in his face would be like bringing a knife to a gunfight. Silly and dangerous. A rule of leadership in the service is to reward in public and chastise in private. The only exception would be if the rude behavior were done deliberately in public. So, my response to this pig would have been in-kind and immediate and seeing his boss (the pilot) standing next to him I would have expressed my disgust at such petty and juvenile behavior. Not nice but then neither was he. Just some thoughts. Brought back some memories. I don’t fly American Airlines either

    I was a flight attendant for Panam and my husband was a pilot for Panam, then Delta. American Airlines was nicknamed “the Sky Nazis” by all other airline personnel: they are not just awful to passengers, but also they are vicious and arrogant toward other airlines, as well. 

  • Sandy

    I think the only label that we should carry is human.  If we are all labeled the same we would be less likely to take the argument to a personal level.  Labels, with the exception of human, are designed to dehumanize someone which then allows people the right to believe they can call you anything they want or apply some unknown characteristic to you that is likely untrue.  We need to get away from democrat, republican, conservative, liberal, christian, atheist, homosexual, straight, etc.  You’re you and I’m me.  Talk to me as one human to another. Every blog, post, comment, I read makes me more disgusted at how much hate and animosity exists which drives a bigger wedge between all of us and common ground is more scarce than ever.  We aren’t going to get through this by name calling.  Many would call me a pollyanna – and those who do would simply prove my point.

    • Anonymous

      All airlines will deny boarding to anyone who appears to be unstable.  It’s not that they will not allow someone with Downs to fly first class.  I read your story.  It’s unfortunate.  I too have a child with disabilities and for the safety and concerns of all passengers, someone who is agitated and upset needs to be calmed down before flying in a tube.  How scary this would have been for the passengers on board if he became unsettled during flight.

    WHile I vehmently disagree with 95% of what Glen believes, I don’t wish him any ill will and do not believe that if ever face to face with the man, would ever blatantly disrespect him.  However, I find it curious that Mr. Beck appears nieve about the FACT that he is a polarizing figure.  People, usually either really like him, or flat out don’t.  It’s really no difference than president Obama.  Let’s be honest.  I’m sure there are certain parts of this country, namely conservative and republican heavy towns and cities, where if Obama just happend to stroll in, he would not be greeted very kindly.  And I say this, bc our president, similar to Beck is also a polarizing figure. Therefore, it seems as though Mr. Beck is engaging in some sort of victimization here. I mean re-listen to the part where he uses conjecture, and assumes that the “rude male flight attendent” is possibly lashing out at him, bc he is standing up for liberals or other glen beck haters. Sersioulsy, Mr. Beck does not know why he was being rude, (which i don’t agree with by the way), but yet he is going to make assumptions that the man ” was sad” and did so because it somehow made him feel better.  Or what about when he went on a rant about how he would paraded around a town square and ridiculed.  I’m sorry, but Mr. Beck was making him self sound like some sort of martyr, in other words the ultimate victim.

      What is exactly disgusiting? That ONE bad experience, from one disrespectful employee somehow represents all OF AMERICAN AIRLINE EMPLOYEEs.  So using Glen’s logic, if I come across ONE bigoted, white supremacist type at at tea party, I should assume that he reprsents “the collective” as Beck would say. And therefore I should walk away from the rally loathing the tea party. Do you catch my drift?  I feel bad for Mr. Beck’s horrible flight experience, I really do.  But for him to start making wild accusations that this shitty flight attendent is a representative of AA policy to be rude to non liberals, is really a stretch argument. While I feel he is warranted and justifed to be angered and hurt about his expereience. I really don’t agree with all the assumptions he is making based off of this ONE flight experience.  Notice, he never spoke about previous flights.  I doubt this was his first time flying AA.

    If you can’t give service because you don’t lke the people you are serving, you should look for work elsewhere. If AA’s politics trumps there service agreement with the passenger they should close up shop and do something else.

But when you disagee with them, they spew the most venomous and murderous speech (i.e.: Cher,Ellen Barkin, Jason Piggs, Samuel L. Jackson). I wil never fly American Airlines again either. This is what Obama’s America has become – a place of division and hatred. Our country is in grave danger, I believe. Glenn – have you seen this article:

    I fly a lot and Delta is the predominant carrier in my airport.  I have to say that if a service member is on the flight, Delta attendants and the pilot make a special point to announce their appreciation.  I have even seen them give upgrades to service members if 1st class is not fully booked.  I would have been writing letters to AA, but perhaps it is the corporate culture of that airline.  It really surprises me though, based in Dallas.

    This is so sad.  I have experienced minor rejection from some of my liberal friends and neighbors.  Boy, if you do not agree with them or feel a strong conviction about something they don’t then you are a hater etc.  So I can’t imagine being ‘famous’ and enduring such open hostility from total strangers.  I never fly American because from KY they always fly into Chicago where flights are usually backed up and late.  Now I won’t fly the Unamerican Airlines for other reasons.  Bless you, Glenn for fighting the good fight. The same with our dear men and women in uniform.

If this guy wasn’t such a loser, projecting his inadequacies  on you, he would be the guy in front getting you to your destination safely, instead of ‘soap boxing” his liberal mantra…No offense to the hard-working flight attendants that do a great job in miserable working conditions, for a lot of people who treat them very badly.

    I am so sorry that you were treated with such hostility and aggression. It took less than four years to turn human beings into small, mean, petty tyrants. How long before they feel comfortable targeting your children Glenn? Or, any conservative’s children? He couldn’t get away with assault or you would have been hit. If we have another four years of Obama, we will see that happen to us on a street corner and nothing will be done. Or at a voting booth. 

    This ISRAELI – will he be the one to light the fire in the next pogrom? Will my liberal sister turn me in to a reeducation camp – just to “help” me become a better citizen? Suddenly, I am no longer certain of the answer. I don’t agree with you Glenn on everything, but who agrees on everything??? My husband made the comment that liberals are so sure they are right – and so are we – and how do we tell who is right sometimes? I said – because we would NEVER assault someone – never embarrass or be rude to someone because of their beliefs. I would treat Obama like a guest in my home, despite his actions. Even that idiot Pelosi would at least be offered a glass of water. 

    The people around you should have stood up for you, should have said SOMETHING. It was shameful, and the saying – the only way for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing – comes to mind. Given your treatment, my husband worries that we just named our new German Shepherd puppy Beck…and wondered if someone who found out his name would mistreat him because we stand with you. How can we even be wondering this – in America???

    American Airlines owes your whole family not only a formal public appology but also full reimbursement for your flight.. and they need to repremand all employees involved.. Do you ver notice that Cristians and most consertives treat those in opposition but those who are of opposite opinions.. Abortionists, those of differet sexual agendas, those of others religions, are so hateful, it seems they are so unhappy with life, so angry and want every one else to know that they are not happy with life.

    I think it’s inhuman to single out anyone like that.  I thought this kind of stuff was in the past for America.  After everything history has shown us (slavery, voting rights, women in the workforce, etc) why do people have to find one more type of person to exclude.  No company should allow customers to be treated like that.  Any company with any integrity would fire him and the others I have heard about in the comments.  I also find it hard to believe that no one else stepped in to help.  People know who Glenn Beck is and I’m sure they were watching, or pretending to not watch, Glenn on the flight.  Even if they didn’t agree with all of your views, wouldn’t they recognize someone who isn’t being treated with respect.  That enough should have had some stepping in.  Shame on the rest of the customers seated nearby and who did nothing.

    Dear Mr. Beck…..I am sorry.  Please believe that not every American Airlines Flight Attendant is as awful as the one you came across.  I am a 26 year International Flight Attendant with American and know that some of the employees are down right rude.  I can confidently say that he was a poor example of our flight attendants and was the worst of the worst.  This is a “man” that hates himself and his job.  He doesn’t deserve your business and you were “taken for a ride” by purchasing a ticket on a flight where you were treated unfairly and rudely.  On behalf of the employees that would LOVE to see you and your family on our flights, I am sorry we won’t be able to.  You are owed your money back, and I sincerely hope you will pursue that.  May God Bless you and your family and please never give up the fight.  

  • Holly Lamb

    Glad to say I don’t fly this airline, I like Southwest and Virgin.  The owner of our local frozen yogurt shop is a flight attendant for AA.  She is a resident here from China, she works in America and owns a Business here.   She is kind of a snippy wench, but I go to Penguin Yogurt because her husband and her hired help are always very nice to me.  I’m glad on the days that she is flying.  She is very liberal and she knows I’m a conservative but still the same she has allowed me to do fund raisers there for various conservative groups.  American Airlines, I will avoid at all cost now and I am very sorry you were treated that way Glenn.  If I treated a customer like that……I might not be fired but I would be reprimanded to highest extent.

  • Melissa Green

    I love Glenn, but think you are being very harsh on American Airlines. I don’t hate all Democrats because our president is ruining this country, so why dislike American Airlines because ONE employee decided to be an idiot. American Airlines has taken some hard hits since 9/11 and there are many great, God fearing people who work for American. American flight attendants haven’t had a raise since 9/11…in fact, they are possibly taking a second cut in pay. I can’t imagine not having a raise for that long, yet keep smiling,and keep serving more people (because of cutting the number of employees on each flight).

    I don’t excuse the behavior of this particular flight attendant. But I think its harsh to quit flying American because of the actions of one. Have you ever thought of contacting American Airlines and reporting this employee?  I bet they would be glad to disipline him for his deplorable behavior. That way you punish the guilty…not the innocent.

    We cannot talk about politics or economics in a vacuum. We have to ask
    ourselves: On what do our political convictions rest? What is the
    implicit view of human nature that lies behind or underneath our
    political beliefs? What is our view of how human beings ought to relate
    to one another? What is our view of the relationship of the individual
    to the state? What do we think is “good” and why do we think so?

    Mr. Beck:  I am so very sorry that the American Airlines flight attendant was so rude and obnoxious to you.  I can assure you that there are all kinds of humans and sub-humans working for all airlines. My daughter is an AA flight attendant and has been for over 20 years.  She tells me that, no longer do the employees care about image.  They are supposed to be the face of AA but no longer care.  She tries to make up for it on every flight she works, but it is getting harder and harder.  Being a conservative Christian in a public service job, she, too, is ridiculed and slurred, not by crew members but by the obviously angry and hateful liberal passengers. On her service apron, she wears a cross pin, an”I love Jesus” pin, and an American flag pin, among others, so that no one can mistake her conservatism.
    She has been called many mean and demeaning names by these passengers, but she manages to smile at them and continues to give them the best service she possibly can.  She cries, but they don’t know it.  Keep up the work, Mr. Beck.  We will stand beside you all the way.  As my daughter says,” it’s hard to fly with the eagles when you have to work down here with the turkeys.” 
    Thank you, and God bless you and your family.

    Glenn, you of all media people should not even bother flying commercial airlines if only for the reasons of privacy and personal security. Buy an airplane and hire a crew, or buy a share of a jet from NetJets, CitationAir, FlexJet, or charter flights as needed. Don’t subject yourself to the indignity of the TSA and the horrid customer service of the airlines when you have better options.

    Glenn, I am truly sorry for your experiences during the entire weekend.  There are millions of people who think New York is “The Place To Be”.  I don’t think that way.  I have been there and was very relieved to return to my home state/city.  Bloomberg may want to stop his campaign of “over-reaching health issues” for those who live in New York and do something about their “attitudes”.  Time for some serious PR work, Bloomie!  THIS IS AMERICA AND WE CAN AND WILL TRAVEL WHERE EVER WE WANT AT ANY TIME WE WANT!  By the way,  American Airlines should have one less flight attendant today.

    Glenn, it’s heartbreaking to hear how you were treated on that flight. You can be darn sure that  that my family, friends & colleagues who support you and what you stand for and who also rack up many, many air miles on a regular basis, will NEVER choose American Airlines again. We love you!….Carolyn in Houston, TX.

  • Tessa Black

    It breaks my heart that in your eyes, this flight attendant changed your view of an entire company.  My dad flies for AA, and he is VERY conservative.  Although his coworkers, at times, have differing views on the world and politics, he has never felt belittled.  I’m sorry that some people have had bad experiences, but I’m sure that you’d find just as many rude employees with other airliners.

    They treated our 18yr. old daughter like crap the last time she flew so you’ve just solidified our decision…thank-you.

    Dear Glenn, how appauling that in “free” America anyone is treated in such a rude manner as you described. I don’t know why I should be surprised, there are those in my own family who think I am mentally deranged because I still like President Bush! That I don’t like policies our current president has put into effect, and that I am afraid for our country. When I try to share an interesting bit of news it is rejected because they think I am trying to indoctrinate them to my way of thinking. I don’t agree totally with the Republicans, I don’t disagree totally with the Democrats, but I do think that because our country has allowed immorality and the killing of innocent babes in the womb that we cannot expect that God will bless us. People don’t like to hear that, women must have their choice. Well, I am a woman and once I have conceived another human, my choice is not to kill it. I’m not sure you will be treated any differently by another airline carrier. Maybe you have to even identify yourself before hand so they won’t shove you off the plane. That is what it’s coming to. The uncivil behavior of people towards those who don’t exactly believe the same way they do. I pray to God I never treat another person with whom I have a differance of opinion with rudely. That I consider that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. I disagree but can’t we disagree agreeably? Apparently not according to American Airlines.

    We had a similar incident also Marko. They refused to let our daughter on a connecting flight because of her carry-on (BOTH of the other AA flights had allowed the bag) and she missed the flight checking her bag in. Our 18yr. old daughter ended up having to spend the night in Vegas, alone.  After calling us in tears they offered to put her up for the night at a local hotel.  When she got to the hotel the manager said they didn’t accept AA vouchers…and explained that AA was VERY AWARE of that fact.  The manager very nicely offered to help her find a hotel that would take the voucher but we decided to pay for the night ourselves…..and she will NEVER fly American again.

    Glenn – I’ve flown nearly 2 million miles on American Airlines.  I’ve had courteous flight crews and lousy flight crews.  I fly on other airlines occasionally, but the same is true there.  There are at least two different forces in play right now:

    1) AA is going through bankruptcy proceedings and the employees are frightened and/or bitter about what the future holds as that makes its way forward
    2) I expect that you were flying business or first class, so the flight crew knew you by name (there is little time for chitchat with the FAs in economy) as your beliefs make you a lightning rod for people with opposite views.

    So, combine an angry, bitter, frightened, liberal, union-card carrying, about to lose benefits (or worse) FA with your personality is bound to make life just that much difficult for that FA.  I’m sure that he got some sort of perverse pleasure out of sticking it to you, but your best bet is to take your complaint (along with the FA’s name or at least the flight # and date) to AA via one of these folks…given your celebrity status, they will take the grievance very seriously:

    Craig KreegerSenior Vice President Customer 963-1234
    Sean BentelManager, customer relations(817)
    Mark MitchellManaging director, customer experience(817)
    Thomas HortonPresident and chief executive officer(817)

    I’m sure your listeners would be interested in how that goes.

    When I used to fuel AA aircrafts. I as a fueler was often talked down to because the company it’s self couldn’t get the load of fuel correct. I only pump what is one the load sheet, I don’t make the judgment call of adding more because I feel it’s not enough. I hated dealing with the pilots and the mechanics of AA. It was then that I decided if they treat me this way, how do they treat their passengers. Well now I know and understand. I put AA on the do not fly list back in 91.

    Arriving home from Vietnam Dec 7th 1969, a couple friends
    of mine and I were insulted at the Airport by couple of airport employee’s at
    the ticket counter. We were flying MSB (Military Stand By) and we were
    confused on what to do about boarding a flight. We were so enamored at seeing a
    Clean Environment, Fluorescent Lights and people dressed nicely tiled floors
    bright lights etc. that we were a little spacy. I’ll never forget that women who said “You GI’s don’t know how to fly yet, where have you been  …in a cave? You need to learn how to read,
    you’d be on your flight home by now instead of stopping to ask questions”!! We had dark tans in December and she knew we’d just arrived home from “The Nam”. We all knew in “The Nam” that we could possibly be insulted and even attacked on arrival, but I never dreamed it would be so real! The others standing by her chuckled as we turned without saying a word and walked away! This was the beginning of an ordeal from the Liberal Left
    that would last 13 years, from condemnation from family members, college
    classmates and professors to the person on the street! I kept my head down and
    looked at no one and sat as far back in the plane as I could. Then out of nowhere
    a flight attendant sat down next to me in the empty seat and placed her hand on
    mine and said. Thank you kissed me on the cheek as quickly as she sat down she
    was up. And as I walked off the jet in Chicago she was the only one who said
    “welcome home soldier”!!

    Mr. Glenn Beck, I am terribly sorry you had to endure rudeness and inappropriate behavior from ignorant people.  I do not care how famous they are, what restaurant they have or who they are with AAirlines, this kind of behavior is hard to understand.  I happen to be a conservative in a liberal neighborhood; have lived here 46 years and watch the deterioration to elite narcicisstic  snotty neighbors.  The only non-sarcastic neighbors are the conservatives. If you are conservative and they know it, you are targeted, ugly words said, campaign signs ripped out of your yard. destroyed or put in the trash, and dare not put a conservative sticker on your car–you risk damage to your car. Your ability, Mr. Beck to describe the humiliation and hurt is what I have also endured.  I am so glad to know there are decent people in this world like you.  Keep up the good work, Mr. Beck….

    When I worked for the State of Virginia a few years ago, my boss would not fly American Airlines. He told me: “My wife had our newborn with her, and she almost dropped her getting onto the airplane — and the flight crew staff all just stood there, and watched. No one helped in any way, shape, or fashion. Was the last time we flew them, and I never will again.” And, we flew all the time in that job.

    I’m ashamed that anyone in this country is treated the way you were.  As a former Airline employee, I understand how important it is to provide good service.  I started out growing up on a farm selling at a small farmer’s market.  I know how important customer service is and if our country has gone to the point of not only ignoring but outwardly treating people subhuman just because you work hard at your job and your job happens to put your face out there as well as your beliefs.  What you do is very hard in the sense that you are unique in your job.  My children overheard me making some comments the other day of a political nature in sarcasm and I had the talk with them where you explain people see things differently and that’s ok.  You don’t treat people differently because they believe something different in religion or politics- it’s ok to believe what you do, it’s ok to express, but (well, they are only 7 & 5) not just say you are right or treat them badly.  And here you saw grown people who could not even show respect or decency.  I commend you for speaking up.  I hope AA takes this seriously and that it was a chance event that it happened to you.  I’d hope that United Airlines (my former company) would treat you better- but then again, I’ve been gone for quite a while and have no idea the climate.  But mostly, I’m ashamed that this is happening in America and even more so, that people stand by and allow it to happen.  Thanks for speaking up!

    Glenn, Here’s my American Airlines story.
    It’s from 2001 and I haven’t flown on their airline since.
    This was an email to some friends telling about my trip.

    Les Cavanaugh

    This is The Flight that I took from Seattle to Chicago
    On  one of American Airlines little tiny airplanes.
    Yes, it was a jet, but after that, all similarities stopped.


    note: this flight happened just 3 weeks
    before 9-11

    on an American
    Airlines plane… of all places.



    I forgot to mention the


    Well, I got to the
    airport ok which was a switch.

    Especially after the way
    I went round and round last night on the Seattle Freeway system. (It’s real
    different in Ohio. All the exits are on the right. It’s not possible to be in
    the left lane and end up in someone’s front yard.)


    I found the American
    Airlines counter ok. But it should have had a sign saying,

    “Welcome to Hell”

    Well, there I am trying
    to check in my Red Bag and the lady says I can’t fly today.

    W H A T !?!


    She said I have to wait
    until next Tuesday to fly out.

    On the one hand this is
    extremely bad news.

    On the other hand, I’m
    hoping she’s right.

    I never did get to find
    out about this restraint Dave was talking about.


    She said that the guy
    that told me I could fly standby was wrong and that I can only fly standby if
    I’m on the actual day of departure.

    But she’d sell me a new
    ticket for $1008.00 plus taxes today if I wanted to go out today.

    She had the personality
    of a Rhino and the warmth of an Antarctic winter during total blackness. And
    that’s just how helpful she was too.

    Her supervisor was a
    great deal more help.

    She said I could get the
    ticket for $880.00 plus taxes.

    And she gave me the same
    song and dance. They tried to blame it on for getting me their
    ticket and that the ticket was based on how many seats they have. But it wasn’t
    Expedia’s ticket. It was American’s.

    This story gets a lot
    worse for the next hour, but the end result is I got to buy a ticket for $226
    plus change rather than use the perfectly good one I had in my hand.


    So they sold me a ticket
    and said I’d have to go through security and which gate to go through.

    Halfway to the gate over
    the airport speakers I heard, “Passenger Cavanaugh please report to gate C9 for
    final boarding.”

    I was already hurrying
    and needed more oxygen as it was.

    When I got there she
    said they’d closed the door on the plane and I couldn’t get on.

    They had been called and
    told I was on my way, but they wouldn’t help me.

    She’s lucky to be alive
    right now.

    I was already over the
    top and ready to….. well, just ready.

    So with the plane just
    sitting there and hooked up to the catwalk I stood while my blood pressure was
    well over 300 and my Christianity was saving this lady’s life.

    A nearby flight
    attendant told me to follow her and I did. She took me to the plane and, low and
    behold it wasn’t sealed and we walked on.


    Then they got out the
    shoe horn to put me into the seat. It was a Super 80. That Jet is called that
    because of how super small it is the 80 is the percent of plane it is.

    It had the wide metal
    arm rests that don’t go up at all under any circumstances that are 16 inches
    apart. This is good if you are the Muslim Arab woman in the middle seat next to
    me or her father on the Aisle seat. But for me it would be better to
    be in the Chinese torture chambers, because, at least they’d have enough room to
    do the torture.

    I had to bend over at
    the waist and schoochie in under the overhead compartments and then sit on top
    of the arm rests with my head locked over my left shoulder as it form fitted the
    shape of the plane. Someone behind me a few rows spewed out a supressed laugh.

    I flew 3 hours with my
    elbows touching and the window down by my belt while turned kitty corner in
    my seat with something wide and metal wedged firmly up someplace intimate.

    I finally got mad and
    the lack of….. just plain lack…. and wedged myself in between the armrests
    and firmly twisted and splayed those armrests out at a 20 degree angle until I
    actually felt the seat below.

    Oh, would you like
    something to drink?

    Sure. Yeah right.

    With my elbows and
    wrists crossed over each other facing me I managed to drink what I didn’t spill
    on me and the Arab woman who was very sympathetic and understanding who fit
    rather nicely into her seat.

    Then came the meal.

    Or rather bite to eat.

    It was a couple spoons
    full of salad and a piece of corn bread that could drive in nails and 3 pieces
    of chicken nuggets. Which was good because I had to balance it on my chest above
    my elbows and use only my finger tips to eat with.

    I looked like a praying
    mantis with his arms crossed and twisted backwards.

    Then the overhead jet of
    air kept blowing the things off my plate onto the Arab woman.

    I said “I’m sorry” to
    her more than to all the other Arabs I’ve ever met in my entire life combined.


    Did I mention leg

    Let’s not.

    Cause there isn’t any.

    I had more leg room in
    your Mom’s Chevete than this.

    Actually, I don’t think
    there’s anything anywhere where you are expected to sit in such tight close
    quarters except for Airplanes, Stadiums, and add on bathrooms.


    Oh, then there’s the
    bathroom experience.


    There is one. That’s the
    good news.

    The bad news, there is
    only one.

    The other is out of


    The entire plane got up
    at about the same time after eating the food and lined up for it clear up and
    down the aisle for about 15 seats.

    The lady trying to serve
    coffee muttered, “This isn’t going to work” and proceeded to get her pit bull to
    send people out of her way.

    When I finally did get
    into the bathroom I was amazed. It was smaller than my seat.

    I had to go back out to
    turn around.

    (As people scrambled for
    the door I said, “Sorry folks, false alarm.”)

    Then I dropped my shorts
    and proceeded to sit down.

    Big mistake. While
    sitting there I realized I couldn’t reach my shorts any more.

    Also, with the sink in
    my kneecap, I couldn’t spread my legs apart at all. This means my knee caps are
    closer to each other than Courtney Cox with her knees crossed.

    Now, I realized it’s no
    longer physically possible to do what I came in here to do because even with
    breathing you have to at least be able to inhale.

    So now I’m in the
    predicament of having to try to figure out how to stand up and do it with
    something cloth like around my waist before walking out to face 15 rows of
    people wanting in here.

    Abandon Hope all ye who
    enter here.

    It can’t be done.


    Well, I tore a finger
    nail to a jagged edge and somehow I managed to contort myself to the place where
    my snagged fabric and worm it up my legs. And then proceeded to climb the
    chimney until I was upright. Then I realized that with the sink right there it
    would be easier to use that than what was behind me.

    Resisting the
    temptation, I left instead.

    I figured it’s only a
    thousand miles to Chicago,

    I’ll wait…


    Back to the wedgie


    On the way I noticed a
    plaque on the wall that said,

    “American Airlines

    More room per coach


    That’s when I realized
    it wasn’t a “fact” or a bragging point.

    It was a “prayer and a
    plea” from a former passenger.


    Well, then I get to feel
    what it’s like for a Salmon to try to go down stream while all others are trying
    so hard to go the other way.


    The rest of the story is
    so much the same that it’s really not interesting, but let’s just fast forward
    to Chicago and the next airplane.

    It was an Embraer 145
    made in Brazil.

    Small people those
    Brazilians, because, this plane was SMALLER. All flight attendants must be under
    5’6″ to work on it. 


    I gotta get me a bigger
    shoe horn.


    Then of course when I
    get to Columbus my luggage isn’t there.


    So what else is new with




    And so, just 3 weeks later the Arabs
    attacked New York with 2 American Airlines Airplanes.

    I have more than one story regarding poor treatment when I have flown American Airlines.

    Sounds to me like your stewardess was gay and since it is common knowledge that Glenn hates gay people, the stewardess felt justified getting a little payback…for you know, Glenn’s hatred of gay people. What’s that you say….Glenn doesn’t hate gay people? But how can that be…don’t all the liberal media cite this as fact? I’m sure I’ve heard that before.

    Welcome home to Texas Glenn. With regard to the open minded NYC folks you ran into…may I suggest you adopt Ray Wylie Hubbard’s song as your mantra…”Screw You, We’re From Texas”.

    As for the AA gay activist…I hope you’ll let AA know that nothing short of termination of that idiot will appease you…please do not turn the other have there attention and can make it a better company for those of us that have less choice in picking them to fly out of DFW.

    I will not use American airlines for any future flights. I am shocked by their stupidity, not righting this wrong with a man who has a microphone and so many loyal listeners. I am glad that eventually wrongs will be righted. I wonder how many of them will be righted now by the massive loss in revenue from all of your supporters.

    The left has become un-hinged and they are very frightened that what little control they think Obama gives them will be ripped from their grasp when Romney takes over. We conservatives must remain hinged, confident and steadfast, and we  also must not cower. Your best response in the AA scenario might have been just to laugh out loud looking directly at the offenders while telling them what problems you have with their customer service.
    I do like the idea of saying a prayer to ask for guidance. Hang in there, it’s been a long four years. The future looks much brighter.

    I flew the “Sky Nazis” (American Airlines) for the last time about ten years back for different, but just as offensive reasons. They earned that moniker from other airlines, as well as passengers! When I turned in my frequent flyer card, the woman on the phone said, “but sir you have enough miles to take your wife to Europe!” Thanks, but I’d swim first. She did at least show me how to donate the miles to some org that flies kids for cancer treatment. I’m not sure how much I helped them with an AA flight though.

    I won’t fly AA…ever.  Also won’t rent a car from HERTZ either.  In 1977 when returning from 4 years in Panama with my wife and two children, but under age 5, I needed to rent a car to drive  from Columbia, SC to Charleston.  They refused to rent me a car, claiming that they were all reserved while there were about 40 cars sitting in their lot.  Upon insisting to rent a car, they changed their story claiming that a few months earlier a young GI from nearby Ft. Jackson had wrecked a car.  Ok….  I was a young Captain, married, two kids, tired, hauling baggage, and at the end of a long overseas flight.  The National Rental company at the counter beside the Hertz people overheard the conversation.  They immediately offered to rent us a car at a small discount.  My children are now 43 and 41 with families of our own.  NONE of us will rent a car from HERTZ if they are the last car company on the planet.  American Airlines falls into the category too.

    The hatred liberals show to those who do not follow their socialist ideals or radical polices is but a reflection of the liberal politicians they support. They see this behavior and mimic it. As one Vietnam Veteran reported, many Vietnam Vets can tell you of similar stories about the hatred of the far-left felt in the 60s. When in Vancouver, Canada in 1965 the outright hatred was palpable and I was challenged by foul mouthed liberals and attacked by a group of these peace-loving folks. (Note: other Canadians stepped in before it got bloody). Not much better in the US but the full force of the anti-war protests hadn’t taken firm root in the US until a couple years later. Then, just as now, this is the tip of the iceberg of a future that will see more and more of these self-appointed goon-squad followers mimicking their leaders. I doubt this attendant was ever in the Israeli military, or if he was, in a combat role. It is obvious he lacks decorum or integrity and telling stories is just part of the self-aggrandizement necessary for him to feel he has any worth.

    As a Viet Nam Era Vet I can well remember that type of treatment from a great many “proper thinking” Americans. What always helps me after the Lord gets me to simmer down, is to remember something I learned at a fairly young age. People who are confident in their principles and beliefs have no reason to attack others over differences. Those who resort to such nonsense do so out of a defensive, angry uncertainty about what they espouse.

    I am standing with you,Glenn.  NO one deserves this type of treatment.  Never.  Never will or or my wife use American Airlines.  I am a believer in what you do is more important than what you say.  The actions of the attendant must be in harmony with that of the management.  I will use the “power of the purse” and allow my own actions to clearly show my disgust.
    Where will it end?  Most of us who not only understand freedom but actually cherish it, are now forced to “put up or shut up”.  I, as a Georgian who now resides in Texas, say ENOUGH.  My offer to anyone who does knows of our belief in the principles of our Constitution is to accept the offer of freedom of choice.  You can choose to live here and honor our Constitution or you can choose to leave this land.  But you MUST choose!  Don’t let the door hit you in the rear on the way out.

    My husband and I went to this restaurant located in LA, owned by the mother of a certain hollywood, (very) bigwig twice.      The first time she was lovely;  she welcomed us with open arms, treated us like family.     We loved the experience so much, we went a second time.    The second time was quite different.    She barely spoke to us, never came to our table to say hello like she did others nearby.    She barely said goodbye, please come back, like she said the first time.
    I couldn’t figure what was different until I looked in the mirror and I noticed my cross around my neck.    That was the difference……I hadn’t worn it the first time.

    Mr Beck I am truly sorry you had to go through all of that.  Was there anyone that took your side?  See that just upsets me to know end.  If I were there I would help you.  I would have told that person that his job was on the line and that his superiors would be told of his behavior.  End of story.  if he didn’t change his attitude I would have asked to talk to the pilot or co-pilot and let them know of the outrageous treatment you received.  Its funny, but I a true American Patriot, wouldn’t do that kind of treatment to anyone even obama… much as I dislike that person for trying to destroy this country.  but still I would not have treated him as you were treated.  so sorry for that.  let me know the next time you travel and I will be there to protect you….ok….

    Glenn, I feel your pain. I had a similar experience with that low-life band of maggots 40 years ago when I was in the Army. It helped me devise the FatGuy Explode The Idiot procedure which, in short, requires me to treat the scum like…scum. They’re servants, just a tad above whatever settles to the bottom of the ocean. Treat them as such. Go ahead, be arrogant (normally a deadly sin, but with rude people it’s so much fun). If a tip is expected, 37 cents gets the point across. And the worse they get, the more condescending I get. Critique their performance. Counsel their body language to “help them be even more hilarious.” And laugh. The more I laugh at them, the angrier they  get. I forced one jackass waitress to cross the line so far the restaurant manager fired her from across the dining room. And I keep reminding myself that God put ugly stuff on this planet so I would know when I was looking at something pretty.

    Remember Ann Landers?  She used to tell people, quite often, that “You are mistreated only when you ALLOW people to mistreat you”.  By saying and doing nothing, Glenn allowed this person to abuse him.  He would have been within his right to ask for another server, if he were dissatisfied with his service.  He failed to do so; perhaps he had to ‘consider who he was’ … still, rude people like his server will continue to repeat such horrible behavior on their jobs when good people serve as their victims and do nothing.  Glenn should have spoken up while on the plane – and quietly asked another flight attendant for another server.  It would have been quietly seen to …. so what if such twerps lose their jobs?  If they cannot properly deal with all customers, they do not belong in a service position and should be removed.  Same thing holds true for the situation at the restaurant having the barbeque.  The manager should have been discreetly informed of the bad treatment Glenn received upon entering the restaurant.  We’re not talking making a scene here – everything could have been handled with Glenn exercising discretion.  Instead, he played the wimp – or the studious, nerdy professor, who chose to anayze bad behavior instead of doing his part in stamping it out.  Pay attention, people, and don’t allow the rude and disrespectful to get by with unacceptable behavior.  Glenn did – and I was surprised aobut his non-reaction as I listed to his story.

       The problem with that is that he could have been accused (albeit falsely) of interfering with a flight crew – a serious offense and then the commentary would begin!  Glenn was right to stay quiet while on the ‘plane and to publicize the crap out of it later.

    Glenn – Sorry to hear about your horrible experience in NYC and on American Airlines. While I can’t do much about the left wing nut cases in NYC who I feel would be much better off if they would all move to Europe. There they can bask in the socialist values they obviously prefer.

    But I can do something about your experience on American Airlines. Like you I can choose who I prefer to fly with. And until I hear that American has openly apologized to you and taken appropriate action against ALL AA employes who participated in these egregious acts against you – I will refuse to fly with AA again.

    I live in the Dallas area and as you know AA plays a big part here in our community. And while I have always enjoyed flying with AA previously I am ashamed and disappointed that they choose to allow employees like this to represent them. Shame on you AA, I will no longer fly with you and I hope many thousands of other follow suit.

    It’s not just AA Glenn!  This past week my wife and I flew through Chicago via Midway.  We were hungry so I approached the McDonald’s in the B concourse. When I went up to order, I noticed the female employee refused to look at me. At first I thought she may have been distracted. I soon found out that it wasn’t because she was distracted… it was because I was white. During the ordering/paying process, she never looked at me once. After paying and returning my debit card and receipt, she continued to look away. I then stood there and kindly said, ‘Thank you’… I stood a few extra seconds longer, but she still refused to look my way. As I moved over to the other side of the counter to wait for our order, I noticed she spoke to others. They were black. I wasn’t it.
    I shared my encounter with my neighbor back home in Nashville the next am on a walk. He proceeded to tell me, ‘That’s nothing! I was at a McDonald’s in Birmingham last week, and a cashier refused to even recognize me”! He apparently stood there for several minutes while black patrons behind him, cut in front of him in line and ordered!  He left and took his business elsewhere. I would have asked for a mgr, but he felt very uncomfortable. Mind you, my neighbor is originally from Seattle. He’s a very laid back guy, but he is guilty of having white skin!*!*!

    Has the world gone insane?  What is becoming of people?  Why are they so filled with hate?  Wasn’t our President going to bring us all together?

    There is a darkness that seems to be swallowing up a lot of folks. It’s sad. Truly sad man!!!

    We just keep praying…….

    Thanks for sharing Glenn.  I just sent a note to AA that we will avoid them at all costs.  The only thing that will may undo this is if they discipline this attendant for this kind of behavior.  I am also cancelling my account with them if that is possible.  I hope a million other businessmen do the same.  Maybe that will get AA’s attention.

    I have emailed and called all family members and friends, telling them this story.  They will never book on American Airlines again.  Liberals do not know their history.  Who are the first to disappear in the night once a despot takes over?  The very ones who helped him get there and why-because they know too much.  The unhappiness and hatred that exists in the hearts and souls of these radical liberals, who most likely don’t know any truths, will consume them and it will end. I used to feel sorry for media people and others who had no idea what was really happening, but no more. They will deserve what they get.  As Glenn says, the truth will win.

    A former Israeli soldier supports the party that defends anti semitism and has a plank in their platform that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel. Gee, he must be a real mental giant! And while I’m at it, to Jews everywhere, understand that the Democrats are only one step to the right of the leader of Iran, who wants you all dead. The liberal mindset is no matter what the problem, more government will fix it. Well you know the Islamic extremists are not going to abide by any government that protects Jews. And so the Democrats just won’t. Good luck with your “campassionate” voting, and the bedfellows you make of people that hate you. It is so sad you don’t see that conservatives are really, outside of God Himself, your only friends.

    Glenn, please allow me to apologize for such uncalled for behavior by a public servant in my state. I feel certain that the person in question was not a Natural Born Texan or he would not have behaved so much like an untutored Yankee. His color is not important to me as it should never matter what color a person is;however, he or she, in today’s society, takes pleasure in living without restriction on the deplorable political correctness, diversity and anything goes life style pounded into them from kindergarten to graduate school and beyond. 
    Sir, my husband and I sat transfixed for all of your FOX shows from the first one to the last. I felt an almost tangible atmosphere from your impassioned presentations, and I felt that you meant every syllable of your monologues and your interaction with your guests.
    For the small person who was rude and disrespectful to you on the plane, then shame on him and shame on American Airlines. I am not a fan of flying anyway, and feel certain that I will not fly anywhere soon unless it is dire duty. But then, I will fly Southwest. If I could address that flight attendant/servant/steward, I would not be as restrained as you were, and the airline agent or representative would still hear my voice in his/her sleep.
    I came to feel that I knew you, and our day became empty at 4:00 every afternoon.
    Thank you for all of your efforts to drag our kicking and screaming fellow Americans into a better future.
    Finally, welcome to Texas, and may you find your coming here to be the best move  that you and your family has ever made.

    Do you think America would have ever become a country if our founding fathers were trying to  “work it out” with liberal people of today?  Quite unlikely I think.  People today do not have a fraction of the friction that those men had.  The differences between our founding fathers was astounding and to top it all off, while they were trying to figure out how to start a new government, a new country, and fight a war, they had the tremendous stress of having a price on their heads.  They’re homes and families were at risk,as well.  Yet…they did work together and understood that each man could and should speak their mind, and then they would hammer out an agreement with much debate and much compromise.

    The TSA have gotten so bad at their Nazi conditioning of “hands up” assume the firing squad position in the body scanner and groping crotches that I always “opt out” and refuse it.American Airlines better wise up and realize that Conservatives can fly other airlines and “opt out” of their progressive bad treatment of their customers! If I do fly, I will always fly Southwest Airlines, the customer service is great and friendly, they understand who pays their bills!CUSTOMERS!

    Glenn, if you want bbq in the northeast and are in the area…I’ll cook it for you right in my backyard.  Any time.

    I won’t fly American Airlines.  Thanks for bringing this out in the open.  I say a boycott is in order.

    I am so sorry! I know I made Texas sound just as good as it is, I never thought you would be treated this way, in Texas! We are good and well mannered people for the most part.
      I apologize for them. Shame on you American Airlines! Maybe you could move your home base to an area that is more suitable to your type of hiring practices, AND STOP GIVING TEXAS A BAD NAME!

  • Andy Smith

    Maybe I’m wrong, but I can picture in my mind exactly the type of flight attendant you had. I know this is not politically correct, but I’m going to ask the question anyway: Was he gay? Because I’ve got to tell you, Glenn, the liberal gays HATE you with a passion. The vile things that they say on their Facebook wall about you (and other conservatives) is shocking. Of course they call us all “tea baggers”, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They are NOT “tolerant” people, which of course is what they preach. They are very sick, sick people who would have no problem treating you that way on the plane. I’m telling you—I can picture it CLEAR AS DAY what happened. I’ll bet you dollars to doughnuts he was a gay mafia type of person. Betcha anything!

    History shows us that acceptance of this this “small” amount of intolerance only leads to hatred, murder, and genocide.

    Fly United, because my wife works for them. But I have to warn you there are just as many blindly liberal union backing workers there, hopefully they would act in a professional manner.

    I meant to add “God bless you and your family, and may all of  your days, and nights, be blessed.”

    Southwest Airlines has the best prices, and we’ve always been happy with the service. It’s ironic how the party of ‘tolerance’ can’t tolerate any opinion other than their own. But with all of the xray machines and groping from TSA employees….I’m content to just drive. 

    Hopefully this air queen that harassed Glenn will be joining the ranks of the unemployed sometime soon. 

    Typical liberal.

    Remember, this was one flight attendant out of the thousands who work for AA.  Hopefully, AA will take the appropriate action.

    It is important to recognize that those on the wrong side will HATE when a good person of faith walks into a room.  Nothing can be done about it.  They hate simply from their core.  The line between good and evil is no longer a grey area.  I don’t fly much but now I know which side AA is on, I will avoid them.

  • Karen Harms

    Thanks Glenn for being the man you are and for standing up for what is true and right.  That flight attendant carries a load of resentment and with he finds out the fact that having a resentment is like drinking poison and and waiting for the other person to die.  Go figure.  Keep doing what you do Glenn.  Restoring Love was such an awesome informational program and you just stood up there and told it all.  You are the man and have made many men stand up and be counted and women and children as well.  I have three young adults in my family that were at the 2016 movie and that made me soooooo proud. Thank you for knowing Who and Whose you are and thanking God in all things including sufferings, trust Him to work all things out to the good, and to be patient as God does His will to make all things good and give us peace that passes all understanding..You are so loved…..

    I have been reluctant to use AA again since they abandoned my family, me, and many others in Mexico during Hurricane Wilma. They would not respond in that emergency as other more responsible airlines did. Their bad customer service caused us to endure three days of unrelenting storm, loss of all our personal items, and a two day trek across the Yucatan Peninsula to obtain assistance. We finally got a flight out with Frontier Airline who sent special planes and staff from Denver to process their passengers and any others that they could accommodate.  After reading your experience, Glenn, I have permanently removed AA from my travel options.

  • Snoe Noe

    I’ll never fly AAL.  As someone who is in customer service this is appalling.  I would never treat someone like this.

    Well…I’ve said it before several times Glenn…and now I will say it again.
    The Progressive Democrats will not stop until everyone is obeying them and them alone.
    To me…they want a war.  Yep.  I know.  But I belong to a large large family and we have a large group of friends of all ages…and we disagree on a lot of stuff..  But one thing that we ALL agree on…we are being pushed into a civil war.  Insidious….of course…but coming nevertheless. 
    This is George Soros plan.  To divide and conquer.  They have divided….and I believe that we have reached a point of no return.
    Hope I am wrong.
