A leftist from Portland on a flight from Baltimore to Seattle decided to verbally attack a Trump supporter, and she definitely got what was coming to her.
The confrontation began as soon as the man, Scott Koteskey, sat down in his seat.
“She just came at me swinging, with insults, disparaging me for having voted for ‘that man,’” Koteskey told Inside Edition.
He began recording the confrontation on his cell phone, just as the woman started her ‘Karen’ antics with the flight attendant, demanding that she be moved to a different seat because she didn’t want to sit next to someone who supported Donald Trump.
While this video is going viral now, it actually took place in 2017, when Koteskey was on his way back from Washington, D.C., after attending Trump’s Inauguration.
His cell phone video shows the woman — who claimed that she was trying to get home to Portland — ranting at Koteskey.
“You pretend to have the moral high ground but you put that man’s finger on the nuclear button,” the woman whined. “That man doesn’t believe in climate change. Do you believe in gravity?”
A flight attendant walked over and asked the woman if there was going to be a problem.
“There will be,” the leftist passenger replied. “I would like for him to change seats with someone else.”
“Well, you don’t have that right. So I will get somebody to come and talk,” the flight attendant responded.
Another member of the flight staff soon arrived to tell the woman that she was being removed from the flight.
“There is no way I’m getting off this plane,” she said in response, leading to an argument between herself and the flight attendant where she tried to talk him into letting herself and her husband stay on the plane.
Eventually, the leftist passenger and her husband were both escorted off the plane by police as several passengers applauded and chanted “USA!”
In a statement to local news outlet KGW, an Alaska Airlines representative wrote:
“The female passenger was insulting passengers in the boarding area and then onboard the aircraft. Several passengers expressed concerns about her behavior. We stand by our employees’ decision to remove the disruptive passenger.”
Writing about the incident on his Facebook page, Koteskey described what happened after police removed the woman from the plane:
“As the lady was removed I saw that I was surrounded by blacks, Latinos, Asians and whites, all who had chimed in asking her to be removed and who had defended me. I was touched and moved knowing later that not all these people were Trump supporters. The black man who took the seat next to me was a registered Democrat and he and I had a very good discussion about the beauty of free speech and coming together when people insult and commit acts of violence just for having differing views.”
Koteskey concluded that the experience had been a demonstration of Americans coming together to stand up for one another.
