Muslim Woman Denied Special Treatment on United Flight – Cries ‘Racism’

Tahera Ahmad’s tempest in a Coke can

by Gina Cassini | Top Right News

This story is either an act of “discrimination” or a huge pile of pig manure.

I’ll leave it to you to decide.

Tahera Ahmad is a Muslim “chaplain” at Northwestern University and a frequent Ramadan dinner guest of President Obama. Recently on a United Airlines flight from Chicago to DC, the same rules that apply to every single passenger were applied to her, which of course was racist. The really messed up thing is, this had nothing to do with her headscarf, pork, or praying to Allah: it was over a soda.

CNN reports that this blatant act of Islamophobia started when Ahmad asked the flight attendant if she could have an unopened can of Diet Coke:

For hygienic reasons, she asked for an unopened can of soda, she said. The flight attendant told her that she could not give her one but then gave an unopened can of beer to a man seated nearby. Ahmad questioned the flight attendant.

“We are unauthorized to give unopened cans to people because they may use it as a weapon on the plane,” she recalled the flight attendant telling her.

When Ahmad told the flight attendant she was being discriminated against, the attendant abruptly opened the man’s can of beer.

“It’s so you don’t use it as a weapon,” Ahmad said she was told.

As you can see, Ahmad would have us believe that because she is a hijab-wearing Muslim, the flight attendant profiled her as a terrorist. But hang on, this thing gets much worse:

Shocked, Ahmad asked other passengers if they had seen what happened.

A man sitting across the aisle turned to her and yelled, “You Muslim, you need to shut the f— up,” she said.


The man leaned over, looked her in the eyes and said: “Yes you know you would use it as a weapon. So shut the f— up,” according to Ahmad.

With racial profiling and vicious anti-Islamic hate showed to her, Ahmad loses it completely:

I felt the hate in his voice and his raging eyes,” Ahmad wrote on Facebook while the plane was still in flight. “I can’t help but cry … because I thought people would defend me and say something. Some people just shook their heads in dismay.

What a terrible story….which likely belongs right in the “Fiction” aisle.

Does anyone actually believe that this story happened? CNN does, and is trumpeting it as a “clear” example of “Islamophobia.”  This despite the fact that Ahmad does not have a single corroborating witness or cell phone video to back up her outlandish claim.

I have flown United for years. Everyone knows damn well you don’t get a full can of soda because it’s free, and airlines try to save every penny on one hand, and stick you with any penny they can get away with on the other.

The guy got a full can of beer – because he paid for it.

What makes her tale even more ridiculous is what she claimed the pilot told her:

The pilot also apologized for everything that happened and said that as a white male he recognized his privilege and said he didn’t know what it must feel like to be a minority and go through something hateful like this,” she wrote.

HUH? Sounds like talking points from Critical Race Theory 101 course at Northwestern U. – not something a real life, likely veteran airline pilot would ever say in 100 lifetimes.

Either that, or she was reading from a script that CAIR handed her in prep for a lawsuit.

And remember the Muslim principle of “Taqiyya” – which states that it is ethical for Muslims to lie to infidels, if it advances the cause of Islam.

Above: Ahmad at Obama’s White House Ramadan dinner in 2014

Brian Anderson of Downtrend has this take:

Here’s what I think happened: Ahmad wanted a whole can of soda and she wanted it unopened, two things the flight attendant was taught not to do. Feeling privileged as part of the protected class of people, Ahmad raised a big stink about being denied something she wasn’t entitled to. She tried to make a blanket policy about racism and Islamophobia.

At one point she may have tried to drag the beer can guy into her madness and maybe he said something like: “Shut up and drink your soda.”

There is no corroborating evidence like cell phone video or testimony from the other passengers, the flight attendant, or the beer guy, but CNN reports this “hate crime” like it is a fact. Even worse, United Airlines is taking the matter seriously and doing their best to kiss Ahmed’s ass. And, you guessed it, Ahmad’s social media supporters are calling for a boycott of the airline.

All of this because a Muslim woman felt entitled to special treatment that isn’t even part of her religion. If you can’t order a Diet Coke on a flight without turning it into an international Islamophobic incident, there is something seriously wrong with you.

    True or not , I DO know that at concerts and sporting events, The vendors DO remove the caps from bottles of beer and water, So that IF it is thrown , it will be empty by the time it hits it’s target.

    The Talmud says the same thing about goyim. Shut up already.

  • CanisRattusImperator

    She is a member of a dangerous group and as such should be looked upon with suspicion.

    • GetOverYourself

      Stating that anyone who belongs to Islam is a part of a “dangerous group” shows how little you really know. Check some valid sources about Islam. News stories about ISIS do not count.

      • CanisRattusImperator

        Pick up a history book. Islam has been violent and expansionist since the 600’s. All of the Mideast and North Africa were Christian lands before falling to the darkness of Islam.

        • GetOverYourself

          Well flip through that same history book and you will see just as many accounts of Christians and other non-muslims being violent

          • CanisRattusImperator

            That’s not equivalent at all. You would be correct if Jesus and Mohamed taught the same thing. Did Jesus have anyone executed?No, but Mohamed did.
            Did Jesus lead an army? No, but Mohamed did.
            Did Jesus call on his followers to make war on the unbelievers? No, but Mohamed did.
            Did Mohamed forgive his enemies, even as he was tortured and nailed to a cross? No, but Jesus did. Jesus said to love your enemies, do good to those who persecute you and to turn the other cheek if struck. So if you murder folks in his name, you are not following his teachings or example.
            Mohamed said you should subjugate the non-believers. He personally led an army in the sack if Mecca, and during his lifetime, oversaw the conquest of the Arabian peninsula. So, if you go around murdering folks and making war in his name, you are following his teachings and example.

          • Wootsauce

            So that magically makes islams behavior acceptable?

  • TheOutlawGunner

    Islamaphobia is well deserved in this country, with over 300 million radical muslims in the world, nearly THE ENTIRE POPULATION of the US is what were looking at as a potential enemy force, look up the banned Pamela Geller speech, it will open up a world of deception to yall

    • CanisRattusImperator

      Is Islamophobia like rattlesnakephobia, where your worried about something which is actually dangerous and can harm you?

    • David Richardson

      So I guess you are a fan of the piss christ art piece all it did was offend a religion.


    You are right it’s all a big lie— there is no support for this story–tc

  • BT

    I’m sick of these people wanting special treatment. ANY race or religion is hated when they think they are above others and they believe they deserve special treatment.

  • Janet Dillon

    As stated, Muslims are allowed to lie to infidels to advance their cause. This story is a big lie promoted by CNN who has the credibility of a pig…

  • LaFlare1017

    That is the fakest story ever, she is a total liar.

    What really happened:

    She asked for the whole can, they said no, because they don’t give anyone a full can of soda, she saw a man get a full can of beer and didn’t understand that he paid for his. She got angry because of her own stupidity, and then made up a story.

    The words she said are such a fantasy

    “The pilot also apologized for everything that happened and said that as a white male he recognized his privilege and said he didn’t know what it must feel like to be a minority and go through something hateful like this,”

    Lol, no, no one says that off the cuff in real life, that is retarded.

    A man sitting across the aisle turned to her and yelled, “You MusI!m, you need to shut the f— up,” she said. “What?”
    The man leaned over, looked her in the eyes and said: “Yes you know you would use it as a weapon. So shut the f— up,” according to Ahmad.

    Seriously, how dumb is she that she couldn’t make a up a believable story? I have flown on about 100 flights and no one would ever speak like that to strangers on a plane, and of course the flight attendant would not say “you might use it as a weapon” as all flight attendants and most passengers know they simply don’t give out the full can for the free drinks.

    I watched the CNN news report and neither the host nor guest DARED to suggest the obvious: that her story is an OBVIOUS fabrication.

    I don’t care what race or religion she is, she is a bad liar, that is least believable story I’ve heard recently, she should write for the onion because she has a wild imagination.

        No. They dont. They pour it in a plastic cup with ice.

          I have been on an American Airlines flight and asked for a full can of soda and they gave it to me. Don’t know about united, but American Airlines did. I don’t believe her story, sounds too made up and convenient.

          • formercanuck

            They may give you a ‘full can’, but expect it to be opened. Also, I’ve found out over the years that if you want a full can… get something obscure like Diet Dr. Pepper. Unlike something like Coke/Diet Coke which will most likely be consumed by probably 1/2 of the people they’re passing. Something unusual won’t – and they’ll typically give it to you.

          • BuckTard

            Every time Ive flown all they gave me was a plastic cup. Been a few years so who knows whats changed. Im sure her story is a load of crap tho. No pilot would ever go into that white privilege garbage she claims was said.

          • Devlin

            I have never heard anyone apologize for being white in my life.

          • Devlin

            I think its made up.

        • Guy Manuel

          I normally fly United, and on their flights I have always gotten a plastic cup with ice and she / he would fill up as requested. Never once have I seen on United that is someone get a full can.

        • Devlin

          I’ll have to vouch for Buck. You get a little plastic cup and soda is poured four you.

      • LaFlare1017

        Depends on the airline, certain airlines do, certain airlines won’t, I’ve seen people get denied plenty of times, including myself although, a few times I asked they did let me get the full can, usually when it’s the mini can so they were going to use to fill another, but most of the times they just don’t.

        If you think they *always* do, you clearly haven’t flown on many flights/airlines. But,

        based on the obvious fact a vast majority of the dialog is fabricated, it’s hard to know what’s true and what’s not in this story.

        One thing I do know, people who buy beer are usually given it without being poured so they can choose to pour it themselves or drink it from the can. Soda is usually poured by the flight attendants. That’s just the way it usually is, and I’ve gotten both plenty of beers and soda’s on planes.

    • GetOverYourself

      You think people don’t actually talk like that in real life? Film from the mosque protest in my hometown proves otherwise. Way worse things were said than that. And have you read any of the terrible comments on these anti-muslims articles?? You would be a fool to think that people who are typing comments like “burn them all…send them back..they are all liars..etc”would be completely cordial with all muslims when face to face in public.

      • LaFlare1017

        Have you been in airport/plane? People mostly keep to themselves, if anyone actualy said “f**** MusIims” out loud or whatever it would have caused a huge scene, it’s confined area, you can’t get away with saying things like that in front of a lot of people. People might say that stuff behind a keyboard, or maybe even on a public bus, but I bet those same be politically correct in a crowded airplane where they’re gonna be stuck in a seat next to the same people for an extended period of time. People don’t want any problems on an airplane where they are stuck with people.

        Yes, I see the comments you are talking about, but lets think about real life, that stuff doesn’t happen the way it does in a comment section.

        The three people: flight attendant, other passenger, and pilot all said things that would be extremely bizarre to hear normally just from one person, but all 3 happen to say these things in to a MusIim leader? Please, I’m not stupid.

        I do think a pilot would apologize, however him saying “as a white male I recognized my privilege” does not sound like conversational english, it sounds like a tumblr post.

        You really think the passenger said “you know you would use it as a weapon” to her? It’s a soda can. Even racists aren’t going to think she’ll highjack a plane with a soda can.

  • johnrhett

    So Muslims may boycott the airlines! Woo-hoo! Thank you!

    • David

      It might be safe to fly again.

      • Mutali

        no they boycott only jews

  • Martin Mark

    they said they will boycott the airline well that’s great then it will be the one to fly as it will be the safest if her friends don’t use it. thank you for letting us know this.

  • Mike

    Racism assumptions aside, one thing the airline should be able to concede is to allow the passenger to have a complete soda. God forbid a person that has paid $100 or more should ask for fifty cents worth of a beverage…much less wholesale, of course. The airline attendant should have responded with “I can give you an unopened soda, but I must open it first. It is airline policy. It you wish to have an unopened beverage, my only option is to charge you for the soda plus a duty tax, and I will put it aside for you until the flight has landed.” The individual that received an unopened beer was in the wrong as well. The airline should in no way sell unopened beverages directly to passengers while in flight, no matter who it is. Whether you wear a suit, turban, NASCAR baseball hat, or burka.

      She cracked it before giving it to him. It has to be cracked, since forever. I asked for a full can but couldn’t because there wasn’t enough, guess they were profiling Catholics too.
