Quote# 66096

I have always been afraid of Muslims. I remember the last time I flew (in '89 I think) I was on the plane and 2 men were sitting I think across the aisle talking in a foreign language. I was terrified that they were hijackers, and I was almost in tears the whole flight. In retrospect I think they may have been speaking French. But it was so scary for me at the time....

Wow, this person would be a quivering pile of catatonic fear after five minutes walking down Fifth Ave. or strolling through the Metropolitan Museum on a weekend. Sometimes you won't see three people in a row speaking English.

Technically, this is not a fundie. This is a classical, textbook case of paranoia.

I can't help thinking America is a place of massive contrasts. On one hand you have some very insightful, clever people and on the other... a flocks of ignorant cretins.

9/28/2009 12:59:31 PM


Not too fundy. But nonetheless one of the funniest quotes I've read.

9/28/2009 1:21:09 PM


...And coming up on the left here, we can see a good example of a xenophobe in its natural environment. Dont make any sudden moves, they're easily spooked.

I'm studying Russian, so I hope I get to sit next to you in a plane someday.

I'll have you in tears.

9/28/2009 2:05:48 PM


I don't think this is so much fundie as mindbogglingly, terrifyingly ignorant.

xen·o·pho·bi·a (zen-uh-FOH-bee-uh)

an unreasonable fear or hatred of foreigners or strangers or of that which is foreign or strange.

9/28/2009 2:53:15 PM


And some people wonder why I'm sometimes ashamed to be American??

9/28/2009 2:59:27 PM


I have always been afraid of Muslims.

That's because you're a cowardly xenophobe, deathly afraid of anyone who might look or talk different from you. You are probably also one of those people who think that Jesus was white, english speaking, european-american, and republican.

You aren't afraid of muslims, you are afraid of brown people. You are afraid of middle eastern, north african, and central asian people. You can't identify a muslim based on sight alone, not all people from from that area are muslims, nor are all muslims caftan or turban wearing arabs or persians, in fact there are likely many of them that are middle class white european-americans just like you, there are millions of muslims that are of black african or southeast asian descent that look nothing like you stereotype image of muslims. There are also many, many people of middle eastern descenct that you would assume to be muslim that are in fact christians, as there are many christian communities that have existed in the middle east for over 1500 years.

I remember the last time I flew (in '89 I think) I was on the plane and 2 men were sitting I think across the aisle talking in a foreign language.

You probly think that the bible was originally written in english and that jesus and the apostles spoke english too.

I was terrified that they were hijackers

Because all people who speak a foreign language and don't look like you are terrorists. If they weren't evil Allah loving terrorists then they would be white and speak english.

and I was almost in tears the whole flight

So how is it that you manage to function out in the world where not everyone looks or talks just like you do?

retrospect I think they may have been speaking French

You can't manage to tell the difference between french and arabic? I guess all people in the world should be required to speak only english when in public so they don't scare people like you or offend your delicate sensabilities.

But it was so scary for me at the time..

That's because you're a cowardly xenophobe, deathly afraid of anyone who might look or talk different from you.

Heavens to Murgatroyd. I speak French every day. I should stop flying? I even speak some Arabic, and have flown Egyptair many time.

I don't suppose the fact that my hair is golden and my skin is freckled and much paler than most Americans', and that I have to be careful not to burn in strong sunlight redeems me in the least. This idiot would have me arrested on the spot.

RHCCapri, why don't you learn a few languages and travel more? The demons are all in your mind. And verily I say unto thee, if thou sittest nigh unto me aboard the great silver flying machine, I will speak to thee but in choicest Jacobean English. Indeed thou cannst, and oughtest to take comfort therein, for it is the very means wherein is written the Holy Scriptures, the which were commanded to be transcribed into the common tongue by our dread and gracious lord King James.

Oh Bugger off!

Guess Europe's (or even New York City) out of the question you raciste bâtard!

@ #1028754

I don't think much of Google's tranlation into Irish. The sentence below is correct.

Is ciníochaí, amaideach paranáiach thú.

Nice try, though. But it's a language that doesn't easily lend itself to computer translations. (two form of the verb to be; no verb to have; prepositional pronouns; 4 cases to nouns; mutation of initial consonants in certain constructions and cases... need I go on?) I'm sure it's well beyond the capacity of RHC.

And RHC, just think, if you had been blown up, wouldn't it have been a bit like the Whooshfest that you idiots are yearning for? Being whoosed up in the air? Planes fly very high....

9/28/2009 3:40:47 PM


Je pense que cette fundie est un terroriste!

9/28/2009 3:51:30 PM

WOW people actually speaking another language! On a plane! The audacity!


9/28/2009 4:17:51 PM

Tolpuddle Martyr

Bad Mockney Accent, "watch out for that one luv, I fink he's furran..." Ooh, foreign people, on a plane? Scarey wary, the plane wasn't bound for Paris by any chance was it?

9/28/2009 4:42:14 PM



9/28/2009 4:54:03 PM


So you're a xenophobe?

9/28/2009 5:03:06 PM


Kind of funny you keep saying "I think." Are you sure of anything? Although, I don't think the phrase "I think" means what you think it means. You're a mindless, bigoted drone.

That was weird.

9/28/2009 5:13:07 PM


Not a lot of fundy, but a triple dose of paranoia

9/28/2009 5:47:57 PM


@John: Why do you think fundies mainly come from the Midwest and the South, and small cities in those locations at that? Hell, even Atlanta or Orlando would send fundies gibbering back to their all-white small-town paradise, let alone New York.

9/28/2009 6:22:10 PM



uh-huh...that language wouldn't have been the language of sanity, now would it?

9/28/2009 6:32:17 PM


See, ingorance isn't always bliss.

If just we could rid the world of "Foreigners" We would all feel so much safer !

There are 6 Billion people in the world,
331 million of these people speak English as a first language

I guess we should have 2 classes of air travel, Terrorist and English speaking :-)

Why are fundies so afraid they are going to die ? They are going to heaven anyway ?

9/28/2009 7:50:36 PM

the dog

You are so lucky Jesus was an American, not a nasty Foreigner who you would be scared of.
