Ann Coulter Refuses to Board Airplane With Black Pilot

Conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter refused to stay on board a Miami to New York commercial airline flight today after learning the pilot was a woman of African-American descent.

According to witness reports Coulter was concerned the experienced, decorated pilot in question may have gained her position as a result of affirmative action and wasn't fully qualified to fly.

The incident began when Coulter boarded the American Airlines flight and took up her first class seat. After a trip to the bathroom, she noticed the pilot was a black woman and became immediately distraught.

According to passengers, at that point Coulter stood at the front of the cabin and began screaming her concerns to the entire flight as they finished boarding.

"Aw come on people, a black woman flying a plane? You know she got that job through affirmative action. Am I the only one worried about this? I mean hello? Our lives are at stake here..."

32. Yes

I thought it could be real up to the point it said she started screaming her concerns. Maybe DU should require a (Satire) tag in the OP for satire articles. Then again I do find it funny as I buy into it at first and then the article gets more and more absurd and I realize it must be satire.

6. The sad thing is that this satire will bring her more money on the Wingnut Welfare circuit

About 90% of the Wingnuts are going to think this actually happened and it will warm the cockles of their shriveled little hearts.

16. My sentiments exactly.

Not all of us are savvy about political satire, and some people might get the wrong idea that this is true and she'd get in trouble for something she never did.

8. You need to put a disclaimer that this is satire--this didn't really happen.

She is a despicable person, and the story does sound like her, but it didn't happen.

Daily Currant has successfully trolled the masses i.e. for Todd Legitimate Rape Akin and Bill Nye.

18. No--the ONION is well known, "Daily Currant" just doesn't have the same footprint.

I can picture Coulter saying and doing those very things--which is why their stuff is so close to the edge. It's just one word -- "SATIRE"-- and it really does belong in the post, somewhere.

30. There's enough shit flying over stupid nonsense already here.

It's not hard to find a topic for DUers to fight about.

I don't think it is wise to let something like that stand without clarification--it's not fun, it's a false claim.

It's fine if the "satire" reveal comes at the end of the post, but it oughta be in there.

It shows how good the Onion is by offering an example of how NOT to do satire.

Stupid garbage.

11. Satire or just libelous bs

I suppose it could be satire but all i see is a news story claiming this event happened with no quantifiers saying otherwise.Stories like this could be considered libel.

Ann felt a twinge of attraction and immediately 'knew' the woman was gay!

Yes. I know it's satire. My first impulse was to see where the link was from.

Some of these non-evolving types are so incredibly inhumane, quite believable this story COULD be.
