Delta Airlines Tries to Shut Down Ann Coulter

There’s still a lot of talk in the press and social media about the Ann Coulter “Twitter rant” that started a few days ago and continued through yesterday. Who knows, the war of words may continue today.

Lots of opinions, some supporting Ann, others Delta, have been expressed.

The source piece for this post discusses a company’s optimal strategy in dealing with customer issues. It finds that Delta made a mistake in picking a fight with Ann.

USA Today

Airlines are often targets of angry tweets from passengers, but like most major brands they typically tread carefully with their responses to complaints on social media.

By shutting down a polarizing figure like conservative commentator Ann Coulter, Delta Air Lines’ response became a political statement, whether that was the intention or not. The airline pushed back at Coulter after she berated it Saturday on Twitter over getting her seat changed.

Coulter began tweeting about the episode Saturday in which she said the airline gave away an “extra room seat” she reserved before a flight from New York to Florida departed. Coulter had booked an aisle seat, but got a window seat.

“Any back and forth with a customer, particularly a political commentator like this, is going to be viewed through a political lens.” said Tanya Meck, the executive vice president of Global Strategies Group, which specializes in strategic communications.

The company’s original tweet has been liked and shared more than 150,000 times, but people are responding in defense of both Coulter and the airline.

Delta offered Coulter a refund, but also hit back at her criticisms on Twitter saying, “Your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.“

The airline later put out a statement explaining the confusion that lead to Coulter being moved from her reserved seat, and restating their disappointment with Coulter’s comments:

“We are sorry that the customer did not receive the seat she reserved and paid for. More importantly, we are disappointed that the customer has chosen to publicly attack our employees and other customers by posting derogatory and slanderous comments and photos in social media. Her actions are unnecessary and unacceptable.

Just two days earlier, rapper ScHoolboy Q accused United Airlines of putting his dog on the wrong flight, and United’s response was much more conventional:

When customers tweet their complaints at most companies, chances are they will get an apology and a request for more information — unless of course they’re tweeting at Wendy’s, in which case they’ll get roasted.

Chains like Wendy’s and Denny’s have mastered building relationships and responding to customers, even complaints, in a lighthearted way. Smirnoff and Reebok have both taken the opportunity to poke fun at the Trump administration, much to the delight of social media.

Delta’s clapback, however, was met with a mixed response.

“Our response is not that much different than a few days before on another attack,” Delta spokesman Anthony Black said in an email, referencing Delta’s response to comments made by Qatar CEO Akbar Al Baker’s.

Such a strong condemnation could be viewed as “attacking her and her views simultaneously,” according to Daniel Korschun, an associate professor of marketing at Drexel University in Philadelphia. These views are likely shared by many of their customers.

“I think they may have overreacted,” he said. “Generally it is in the company’s best interest to treat all customers the same.”

Korschun said he believes companies can and should be transparent about their political leanings, and that doing so can be great marketing technique. His research shows that customers expect companies that prioritize their core values to take a stand on important issues.

The jury is still out on what Delta’s response will mean for its image. Meck says that while unpopular stances may incite social media backlash, it doesn’t often affect a company’s bottom line.

“Americans expect companies to take a stance or respond to an issue or current event, even if the issue is perceived as political — as long as the company explains it motivation,” Meck said. “In these respects, Delta passed with flying colors.”

I have no doubt that Delta pushed Ann around (or tried to anyway) because she’s white, blonde, and an effective spokesperson for conservative politics.

Take a look at this Delta Tweet and understand that the company is a cesspool of “progressive” thinking:

I’ve said from the beginning that I thought Delta’s dirty tricks were coming out of the faggot agenda. I’ve seen nothing to change my mind.

Ann, always colorful in her word choice really gave me a laugh when she described the female passenger given her seat with extra leg room as being dachshund-legged.

Haha. That woman doesn’t look white to me, so there may be some racial animosity at play, as well as political correctness. Ann claims she was an immigrant.

In any case, this little guy wouldn’t need the extra leg room:

Politics? Delta Boots Ann Coulter from Reserved Seat

It’s easy to believe that a far-left employee at Delta Airlines decided to punish leggy conservative Ann Coulter for her conservative political and social views. In fact, I’ll bet the scalawag who did the dirty deed is a sodomite male. This is exactly the kind of dirty trick those freaks like to play.

New York Post

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter flew into a fit of fury Saturday after Delta Airlines booted her from her reserved “Comfort+’’ seat — which comes with 3 additional inches of legroom — and gave it to another passenger.

In a two-hour tweeting tantrum,she quoted her exchange with a flight attendant: “Why are you taking me out of the extra room seat I specifically booked?’’ she asked.

Their answer, she said, was “I don’t know.’’

The 6-foot-tall Coulter, who is 55, tweeted a picture of the woman who got her aisle seat on the flight from LaGuardia to Florida, noting, “Delta didn’t give my extra room seat to an air marshal or tall person.’’

A Delta spokesman said it appeared Coulter was in the same extra-room row, just in a different seat. But he promised to look into it.

One Twitter user, clearly not a fan of the columnist, wrote. “Ann Coulter is having a bad day which makes my day better. Thanks Delta.”

Determined Ann Coulter to Speak at Berkeley Public Square on Thursday

This story broke about a half hour ago. The situation is fluid and subject to change. The important thing to bear in mind is that the liberal/progressive/Communist police state in Berkeley wants Ann not to speak. If she does speak, some of them would like her dead, which poses problems for law enforcement.

By this point in time, the Berkeley police have had plenty of time to infiltrate the violent criminal thug groups that call themselves the antifa. If a pro-white group were as violent, all its leaders would be under arrest and charged with hate crimes.

The Hill

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter will give a speech at a public plaza at the University of California at Berkeley on Thursday, sparking concerns about massive protests causing safety hazards.

Coulter will speak at Sproul Plaza, the legendary site of the 1960s Free Speech Movements, an area that is open to the public.

UC Berkeley’s chancellor Nicholas Dirks told the Washington Post the school is worried about not being able to screen attendees for weapons.

If the event were inside, the university could use metal detectors and otherwise search for weapons, Dirks said.

“In an open space, you have almost no control over that,” he added, according to the Post report. “The challenges are immense.”

The Post report indicated the school is readying police for the event.

Coulter has repeatedly insisted she will speak on Thursday, despite Berkeley initially canceling the event over safety concerns. Berkeley attempted to move the event date until May 2, but Coulter rejected the proposed change.

“Nice day for an outdoor speech at Berkeley,” Coulter tweeted Monday, sharing a Thursday weather report for the area.

On Monday, the students who initially invited Coulter to speak filed a lawsuit against the school.

The suit accuses “university administrators and campus police” of “repressive actions” to stifle free speech.

Berkeley’s concerns for safety follows massive protests that erupted on campus in February, after the same College Republicans group that invited Coulter brought right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos to speak at the university.

A Berkeley student who is a member of the student groups that invited Coulter told the Post that he shares the school’s concerns for safety, and they are hoping to find an off-campus space for the talk.

He said Coulter has still insisted she will speak at the public plaza.

“We’re worried about it turning into a huge battle between her security and conservative militia and anti-fascists and others,” student Pranav Jandhyala told the Post. “To have that right in middle of Sproul doesn’t bode well for the image of our school or the city. We’re worried about violence and student safety and our own safety as well. It’s a huge safety concern.”

While I was putting together this post, Breitbart broke the news that the Young Americans for Freedom are pulling out of the Ann Coulter event due to the extreme danger. YAF blames a university administration hostile to free speech for their action. I believe we might call their action cowardly.

Campaign Ad: Heroic White SC Congressional Candidate Sheri Few Calls Out Cowardly Race Traitors Who Voted to Remove Confederate Flag

WISTV

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) –
South Carolina District Five Congressional candidate Sheri Few released an attack advertisement against two of her opponents who voted for removing the Confederate flag from the State House grounds.

Clutching an AR-15, Few blasts Tommy Pope and Ralph Norman for voting for the flag’s removal in the wake of the racially-motivated shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

“Weak politicians are too quick to blame a horrible tragedy on a flag or a gun or even free speech, and that’s how bad laws are made,” Few said.

Both Pope and Norman were among the 97 House lawmakers who voted to remove the flag on July 9, 2015 in the weeks following the murders of nine African-American parishioners by Dylann Roof. Roof admitted to the crime and said he hoped it would start a race war. Roof was eventually tried, convicted, and sentenced to death by the federal government in 2016.

Daily Mail Smears Wife with a Purpose as Horrible Racist Loon for Standing up for the White Race

Go to the linked Daily Mail story and down vote the nasty comments toward Ayla. I did.

She’s clearly upset by this hit piece and who could blame her. But the comments are worse. DM readers don’t think that whites should stand up for themselves the way other races do.

Daily Mail

A racist Mormon ‘mummy blogger’ has issued a ‘white baby ‘challenge’ to her followers to stop ‘black ghetto culture’.

Alt-right blogger Ayla claims on her blog Nordic Sunrise, that Mormonism is doomed if it continues to celebrate racial diversity, and support refugees and immigration.

The Donald Trump supporter, who regularly retweets former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and uses the #whiteculture hashtag, has become a poster girl for the alt-right movement.

In her latest rant, Ayla – a mother-of-six who also opposes feminism – attacked what she describes as ‘black ghetto culture.’

When someone has an opinion contrary to mindless egalitarianism and the press calls it a rant, you know it’s fake news.

Her answer was to issue the ‘white baby challenge’ to urge white families to have more white children, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

‘I’ve made six. Match or beat me!’

She also tweeted a statement from Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, saying that Americans ‘can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies’.

The blogger also criticized rapper James the Mormon, aka James Curran who she claimed was promoting ‘ghetto culture.’

‘Just as inner-city Chicago used to be full of hardworking Christian[s], Poles, Germans and Irish but is now overrun with black, ghetto culture,’ she wrote in a recent blog, ‘it seems Mormonism and Utah are the next target for cultural destruction, and what’s worse, the Mormons themselves are welcoming it.’

Let’s pick up the story with several of Ayla’s Tweets and Retweets.

“Wife with a Purpose” at Odds with Her Mormon Faith on Refugees and Race

AYLA, WIFE WITH A PURPOSE. MOM AND MORMON.

Ayla is a sinner to the howling leftist mobs who hate the white race and the traditional family. She actually retweets the common sense of David Duke. Gasp!

She’s also white, smart, and a good wife and mother to her six young ‘uns. Good for her. I featured one of her Tweets where she challenged all other white women to have more white babies. That was in the post on Rep. Steve King and his “racist” Tweet about Western Civilization.

Salt Lake Tribune

Alt-right views of “Wife With a Purpose” conflict with the LDS Church’s message of celebrating racial diversity, welcoming refugees.

Mormonism is doomed if it continues to celebrate racial and ethnic diversity, to support refugees and immigrant families, and to debase Western, white culture.

At least that’s the view of one Latter-day Saint, a blogger named Ayla, who tweets as Nordic Sunrise and “Wife With A Purpose” — despite the fact that her church disagrees with her on all those points.

Still — because the mother of six has nearly 22,000 Twitter followers, has been interviewed multiple times on radio and maintains a strong presence on social media — some see her as representing a “growing” alt-right LDS subculture.

Spend 5 Minutes with Katie Hopkins as She Destroys the Multicultural Narrative in Interview on Tucker (Video)

Youtube title:

Tucker Carlson Interviews Katie Hopkins on London Attacks and Multiculturalism (03/22/17)

Excerpt from Katie’s opinion piece at the Daily Mail

As the last life-blood of a police officer ran out across the cobbles, the attacker was being stretchered away in an attempt to save his life.

London is a city so desperate to be seen as tolerant, no news of the injured was released. No clue about who was safe or not.

Liberals convince themselves multiculturalism works because we all die together, too.

An entire city of monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb.

Immersed in a seething pit of hatred, hidden in pockets of communities plagued by old animosities and ancient strife.

These people may have left their lands. But they have brought every tension, every conflict, every bit of fight here with them.

The Afghans hate the Somalias who loathe the Eritreans. As it was before, it is now. London is a city of ghettos behind a thin veneer of civility kept polished by a Muslim mayor whose greatest validation is his father’s old job.

Son-of-a-bus-driver Sadiq.

I see him now, penning a missive about how London is a beautiful and tolerant city, how we are united by shared values and understanding, and how we will not be cowed by terror.

Sure enough, there he was, saying exactly that, just now. Fool.

LONDON MAYOR SADIQ KHAN. THE FOOL, AS KATIE CALLS HIM.
