Woman bumped from United (what else?) flight by the imperious Sheila Jackson Lee (D, TX)
Jackson Lee accuses her victim of…wait for it…wait for it…racism.
Woman – Jean-Marie Simon – fires back:
“That could have been Donald Duck in my seat,” Simon, a Democrat, told Fox News on Thursday. “I could not see who had boarded the flight. I didn’t even know who she was.”
It could happen to you:
At first, Simon didn’t know who was in her seat as she argued at the gate. United eventually gave her a $500 voucher and reseated her in the economy plus section. In her original Facebook post, Simon said another Texas congressman then informed her a fellow member of the delegation was in her seat, and “regularly does this” to passengers.
Of course she does.
And if yoiu say “boo”, she plays the race card.
On the one hand, if Simon weren’t a female Democrat, the media wouldn’t be carrying the story. If she were a white male, the “racism” charge would be carried uncritically.
On the other hand? More of these spurious charges of racism, misogyny, “mansplaining” and the like need to be jammed back down the accusers’ throats. Preferably with ball-peen hammers.
