Reports came out this week of a flight to Los Angeles that was diverted last month because a passenger became “unruly.” Here’s the story from Associated Press. See if you can spot an extremely important omission:
OKLAHOMA CITY—A flight from Washington to Los Angeles was diverted to Oklahoma City after an unruly passenger assaulted a flight attendant, police said.
An air marshal who was on board the Delta Air Lines flight had the passenger in custody when the flight landed Thursday night, Oklahoma City Police Capt. Arthur Gregory told TV station KFOR.
The Transportation Security Administration says the air marshal was also assaulted during the response and was injured but didn’t need medical attention.
The flight continued on to Los Angeles after the passenger was removed.
In a statement, Delta praised the “quick action and professionalism” of its crew and air marshals for their handling of the situation.
Police said the passenger was booked into jail on complaints of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
Last month, Attorney General Merrick Garland directed U.S. attorneys across the country to prioritize prosecutions of federal crimes that occur on commercial flights amid a historic spike in cases involving unruly passengers.
Federal law prohibits interfering with a flight crew, including assaulting, intimidating, or threatening crew members.
The Federal Aviation Administration said last month that it had referred 37 cases involving unruly airline passengers to the FBI for possible criminal prosecution since the number of disruptions on flights began to spike in January.
If you’re familiar with the story, you probably saw the omission quite easily. If you hadn’t heard about it or if you received reports about it from mainstream media, you probably have no idea what the passenger did to qualify as “unruly.”
Trending Politics wasn’t so shy in their reporting:
In the latest example of an SJW activist gone mad, a Delta flight heading to LAX was forced to make an emergency landing in Oklahoma City Thursday night after a passenger screaming about BLM and being enslaved by the white man assaulted a flight attendant and an air marshal.

A woman aboard the flight sitting two seats behind the violent passenger posted a video of the suspect being cuffed by the air marshal to Instagram.
“So… this just happened on our plane from D.C. to LAX two seats in front of me. He was yelling about BLM and being enslaved by the white man. We had to emergency land in Oklahoma so the federal police could come to take him off. Our five-hour flights turned into 8 hours. ” the passenger said in a caption of the video.
Imagine if a White passenger had been screaming about All Lives Matter and lambasting Critical Race Theory. It would have been major news on every network and the passenger would have been labeled a Trump-supporting racist.
It’s a sad state for this nation to be in when “news” reports omit blatant racism because it doesn’t fit their Cultural Marxist narrative.
