    "What are you upset about?" he asks.

    "Queers is what I'm upset about!" the homophobic man shouts, gesturing wildly at a traveler wearing a pink shirt.
    "This faggot right here."

    Very sad and clearly someone with mental issues. His grin while laying on the floor told so much. The good thing was so many people reacted when he needed to be subdued.

    Although disgusting to see a guy act like that, and in a freaking AIRPORT too, it was cool to see the crowd come to the older guy's aid...with the gentlest gang-tackle I've ever seen!

    DFW is one of the largest airports and hubs for changing flights in the US. It is not some regional Texas airport.

    It's quite possible that most of those brave passengers who intervened were not Texans, or maybe none of them were, rather non-Texans passing through. Unless the police collected their identities, and their home addresses for public release, don't make assumptions one way or the other.

    Bravo to his fellow Texans who subdued him quickly and wouldn't tolerate that shit for a moment. And this is coming from a West Coaster. Obviously TX has more stand-up people than nutcases.

    It is correct. But it is not correct to assume the participants were mostly or even any of them Texans, just because DFW is in Texas. Maybe they were, maybe they weren't.

    This is a major US hub, with people there from all over the US, as well as foreign travelers. I've passed through there dozens of times myself. People change planes there who aren't even GOING to Texas, or COMING from Texas, just passing through.

    In fact, do the reports establish whether this nutty guy is even a Texan himself? We may know more as this story develops. But in a major international airport I wouldn't make assumptions about the residency of ANYONE who's in the terminals.

    The crowd basically ended a fight. It wasn't because he was abusing a gay guy. They would have done it for any reason.

    Lets be real here, if this racist guy came on realjock most of the users on here would think he's hot because he's white lol.

    Racism is not a natural instinct it's a programmed/inherited way of thinking. This loser at the airport is just victim of a primitive and uninformed way of thinking.

    this is why sedatives should be given out for flights, so crazy people will be mellowed out.

    not defending the guy, but he was clearly drunk. he wasn't a "bully", he was just a drunk idiot. the same thing (people tackling him) would have been done if he assaulted someone who wasn't gay.

    "But it is not correct to assume the participants were mostly or even any of them Texans"

    Never claimed that, did I? But now that you make me look at the vid again, I bet the old man in the cowboy hat was. And given that this was baggage check-in, I bet that these folks were mostly Texans.

    However, I did claim .. "And in TEXAS too." I didn't take it any further than that so I stand by my claim.

    Guess what? Oklahomans wear cowboy hats, too. They're just to the north of Dallas-Fort Worth. And many of their regional flights counter-intuitively go south to DFW, even when their final destination is far northern airports all over the US, because of the economics of the airline hub system.

    Do research it. Believe me, I used to rack up 100,000+ annual frequent flyer miles through DFW. I'd want to fly from Atlanta to Lawton, Oklahoma (Ft. Sill), and I'd have to go into DFW, which was way south, to get a commuter flight. NOT fly directly into OKC, which was closer.

    Cowboy hat or not, you don't know WHO somebody is in DFW. And that is my point.

    Yes. This man is definitely mentally ill. A stable, normally functioning person would not lay there grinning after being taken down by a group of strangers, and then continue ranting to the police as they subdue him. Unless this is exploration of some new fetish that I am unaware of.

    As others have already said, it was just a bunch of (albeit decent and public spirited) people intervening to stop a drunk who was being verbally abusive and then who assaulted a smaller and older person. The homophobic nature of the ranting was probably incidental to their intervention rather than the motivation for it.

    I have to say that as unfortunate as it was, this could have easily happened in any other part of the country. Dallas, San Antonio and Austin all have gayberhoods; the whole of Texas isn't completely unaccepting.

    Exactly. There have been quite a handful of gay bashings in NYC lately, which is supposed to be a progressive city.

    Sorry, but your post falls on many deaf ears here. It doesn't fit with the leftist / liberal / Democrat stereotype of Texas being a horrible place where gays are put into prisoner camps.

    Yep, as I mentioned earlier in this thread and have written about on this site many times. You think the TRUTH matters to the liberals on here???

    ostrich-head-in-sand.jpg

    Not a good generalization regarding liberals. As someone who is accused of being among the most liberal of RJ members, please note above that I've been arguing that the fact this incident took place in DFW airport is not proof that ANY of the principle participants are Texans themselves, including the perpetrator. The truth DOES matter to me, as well as factual accuracy.

    Being very familiar with DFW from years of travel, I know that you'll encounter travelers from all over the US at this major hub, and indeed the world. And it's not uncommon to encounter some very drunk passengers, who spend too much time in the DFW airport bars, waiting for connecting flights. (And no, I wasn't in them myself, but usually up in the Delta Crown Room where I had a membership, because of all the flying I was doing, often in uniform, where getting drunk would have cost me my career, seldom if ever taking advantage of its free bar service)

    So that this "homophobe" may also have been more drunk than anti-gay Texas bigot, as some here have suggested as an alternate explanation. Still, I wonder if his being identified as a homophobe who was taken down by fellow travelers doesn't work to the benefit of gays with the general public. And make at least some Texans think differently about their own actually homophobic attitudes (and we know many have them, as their Governor proudly exhibits).

    BTW, this post is not meant as an attack on you personally, thus breaking our recently minted truce. Rather, merely to correct the record about liberals, who do not all march in lock-step like the Right does. In fact, that's one of our political weaknesses versus the Right - we tend to think independently, not religiously adhering to strict orthodox Party dogma. There is political strength in unified numbers, weakness in disarray. If Liberals were more like Conservatives in this regard our better policies would have us in electoral majorities throughout the US today.
