Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary accused of “racism” for saying terrorists are ‘generally Muslim men’. Snowflake meltdown!
The security checks in airports needed today are solely down to Islamic threats.
Ryanair boss demands extra airport anti-terror checks on Muslim men because ‘that’s where the threat is coming from’
RYANAIR boss Michael O’Leary has demanded extra anti-terror checks for Muslim men at airports as “that is where the threat is coming from”.
The budget airline chief, 58, believes terror suspects flagged at airports would “generally be males of a Muslim persuasion”.
Michael O’Leary believes Muslim men should be subjected to extra anti-terror checks at airports
Yes, they should be. Everything should be really, really difficult for them.
Outspoken Mr O’Leary of the budget carrier made the controversial comments in an interview with The Times.
Charities and an MP blasted Mr O’Leary’s remarks and accused him of Islamophobia and racism.
Mr O’Leary said: “Who are the bombers? They are going to be single males travelling on their own.
“If you are travelling with a family of kids, on you go; the chances you are going to blow them all up is zero.
“You can’t say stuff, because it’s racism, but it will generally be males of a Muslim persuasion.”
‘DEAL WITH THE THREAT’
He added: “Thirty years ago it was the Irish. If that is where the threat is coming from, deal with the threat.”
The Muslim Council of Britain said the Irish businessman’s comments were racist and discriminatory.
Islam is not a race. It is okay to discriminate against people who’s religion calls for our annihilation.
A spokesman said: “He openly advocates discrimination against ‘males of a Muslim persuasion’, which presumably is not based on specific intelligence but solely whether someone ‘looks or acts like a Muslim’.
“This is the very definition of Islamophobia.”
No such thing exists.
“Who are the bombers? it will generally be males of a Muslim persuasion”
Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Barr, who is Muslim, blasted Mr O’Leary’s comments, which came two days after a far-right terrorist massacred ten people in a shooting in Germany.
Mr Mahmood said: “He’s effectively saying ‘everyone is game — if they look like a Muslim then they must be a terrorist’.
“It doesn’t improve community relations; it gives succour to people of a fascist mindset.
“In Germany this week a white person killed eight people. Should we profile white people to see if they’re fascists?
“He’s being very blinkered and is actually encouraging racism.”

Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP For Birmingham Perry Barr.No such thing. Islam is not a race.
Mr O’Leary’s remarks come the day after a white female Muslim convert admitted plotting a suicide bomb attack on St Paul’s Cathedral in London.
Safiyya Amira Shaikh, 36, was born Michelle Ramsden but converted to Islam in 2007 and is believed to have become radicalised in 2015 after following extremists online.
The airline chief is no stranger to controversial remarks.
He once said: “The best thing you can do with environmentalists is shoot them.”
The guy is onto something.
