DALLAS (KRLD/AP) - Southwest Airlines suspended a pilot whose disparaging comments about gays and older flight attendants were transmitted over an air-traffic control frequency.
The pilot was talking with another crew member and apparently didn’t realize that his microphone was on.
"CAUTION: Contains explicit language"
ENGLISH TRANSLATION: "Only those mature enough to handle the Working Class Idiom without false indignation should expose their ears to this magnificent rant." - S.L.
Air Traffic Control in Houston told pilots in the area to check if their microphone was stuck open.
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES DISCLAIMER: “The actions of this pilot are, without question, inconsistent with the professional behavior and overall respect that we require from our employees,” said Southwest spokeswoman Brandy King
Southwest said Wednesday that the pilot was reinstated after going through diversity training (i.e re-education - S.L.).
STORMBRINGER GUIDANCE: EVERYBODY needs to "CHECK SIX" early and often, check the status of your mike and everybody else's, and end every sentence containing certain 'creative euphemisms' with the qualifier: "NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT . . ."
THIS IS WHAT I'VE GOT TO SAY ABOUT IT: I'm a taxpayer, a veteran, and a self-employed business owner: I help make this country work. I'm also an immigrant, an Asian Pacific Islander, I'm in a mixed-race marriage and my kids are AmerAsian . . . Now you can make what you want of all that; I am not now, nor have I ever been 'Politically Correct' - and I'm also not uptight. if you're a productive member of society then I don't care about the color of your skin, what religion you are, whether you're male or female and I don't want to know about your sexual kink or orientation - just keep it in the closet where it belongs. If what I say, think or do offends your virgin ears, get off the boat. The rest of you, feel free to hunker down, fill your hands with shootin' irons and help me keep the world safe for Democracy - "The Good Lord Willing and the River don't Rise".
You're what this is all about, Green Beret!"
