Michael O’Leary, the Irish top executive for the budget airline Ryanair, has come under attack from globalist politicians and Muslim groups after he suggested during an interview with The Times of London that airport security should focus on Muslim men.
According to Ryanair boss, instead of subjecting families with young children to security checks, they should instead be focus geared toward Muslim men “because that is where the threat is coming from”.
“Who are the bombers? They are going to be single males traveling on their own,” said O’Leary.
“If you are traveling with a family of kids, on you go; the chances you are going to blow them all up is zero,” he added.
When making the statements, the Ryanair CEO is well aware of the media storm that would ensue after they were made public, saying: “You can’t say something like that because it’s racism, but in general it will be men of the Muslim faith. Thirty years ago it was the Irish. If that is where the threat is coming from, deal with the threat.”
Unsurprisingly, O’Leary’s comments garnered harsh criticism from a variety of groups who, of course, accused him of Islamophobia and racism
Responding to the airline boss’s comments, British Labor MP Khalid Mahmood said: “In Germany, a white person killed eight people this week. Do we have to profile white people to see if they are fascists? ”
A spokesperson for the British Muslim Council also complained about O’Leary’s comments, dismissing them as “shameless discrimination”.
