PC madness: Man told to remove Princess Bride t-shirt

A passenger on a commercial flight was told to change after other passengers complained they felt ‘intimidated’ but the t-shirt he was wearing. The shirt was merely a reference to a very famous movie line from The Princess Bride. Who would be offended by that? Furthermore, if the passenger really wanted to inflict harm, how does changing shirts help the situation?

The quote, "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." was emblazoned on the shirt of Wynand Mullins when he boarded Qantas flight bound for his native New Zealand. He was asked to remove the shirt, but couldn't find one to replace it. While Mullins described the incident as "comical", he said that he wouldn't be surprised if someone on the staff was watching him during the flight.

On radio, Glenn made of the whole story, saying that Princess Bride was one of his favorite movies and that he uses it as a "friend test". If people don't like it, they usually don't make it into his circle of friends. He clearly did not think the airline had any reason to come up and ask the man to remove the shirt.

Watch the famous movie line below:

TheBlaze reports:

According to the New Zealand publication Stuff, Wynand Mullins, in hindsight, admits the T-shirt might not have been the best choice for air travel, but he thinks the airline’s response was a bit overboard.

“The flight attendant said to me: ‘Are you able to remove it because some of the passengers are quite intimidated by it,’” Mullins recalled to Stuff. “I thought it was all a bit silly. The person next to me was laughing, because they knew the movie.”

Mullins said the flight attendant went to look for another T-shirt for him, but one wasn’t found.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they had someone watching me the whole time,” Mullins continued.”The whole experience was a bit over the top, but also a bit comical.”

Stuff went on to report a Qantas spokesperson saying the airline does have dress code standards restricting clothing slogans that are “offensive or threatening.”

 

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
