Woman deboarded from Delta flight for taking part in Capitol riot as passengers cheer: 'Get off the plane'
The woman is seen defending herself by saying things like, 'I have the right…' and 'Freedom of speech'
A woman passenger was removed from a Delta plane after it was found she was among the rioters who stormed the Capitol building last week. As reported by UNILAD, the video of the incident was shared by TikToker TJ Spencer Jacques on the video-sharing platform that showed the unidentified woman deboarding the flight after being found to be on the “no fly” list. It has been said that the woman participated with thousands of President Donald Trump supporters in the deadly protests that broke out at Washington after a MAGA rally. The rioters overran the Capitol building to protest the presidential election results and to block the certification of Joe Biden; the riots resulted in the deaths of five people, including one police officer identified as Brian D. Sicknick.
As the suspected rioter made her way down the aisle, many passengers reportedly told her, “Get off the plane”. The woman is seen defending herself by saying things like, “I have the right…” and “Freedom of speech”. One flyer even added, “You’re proud of yourself for what you did… get out.” The person who captured the whole incident said that the woman was earlier seen comforting another individual, who was also on the no-fly list by saying, “They’re all on the no-fly list for being a radical white terrorist.”
In another incident, a person believed to be a rioter reportedly got emotional after getting to know that he had been put on the no-fly list. While a pilot reportedly threatened flyers that they would leave them stranded after the passengers began chanting Trump’s name mid-flight.
Reports said that several airlines have put the rioters on the no-fly list to prevent them from returning to Washington, D.C. to participate in future protests, plans of which have reportedly already begun. A statement from Twitter that confirmed that Donald Trump’s account has been suspended also stated that “plans for future armed protests have already begun proliferating on and off-Twitter, including a proposed secondary attack on the US Capitol and state capitol buildings on January 17, 2021.”
Regarding the permanent suspension of Trump’s account, the social media site added, “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence. In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open. However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules entirely and cannot use Twitter to incite violence, among other things. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement.”
