United Airlines: We're Anti-NRA and Pro-Killing-Your-Dog

Criminal charges being considered.

A criminal probe has been launched into a puppy’s death aboard a United Airlines plane after a flight attendant ordered its owners to stow their pet carrier in an overhead bin.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office in Texas said late Wednesday it is working with the county’s animal cruelty task force to investigate 10-month-old Kokito’s death.

Prosecutors won’t decide if criminal charges are warranted until the probe is completed, officials said in a statement.

United's story has been that the stewardress making this odd demand didn't know there was a dog in the dog carrier, despite the family telling them this clearly, when they objected to putting a puppy into a small enclosed space where air could, possibly, run out.

But this seems to be a lie:

Sophia told NBC News that her mom told the flight attendant, "'It’' a dog! It's a dog!' and (the flight attendant) said we have to put it up there."

"In the end, she says she didn’t know it was a dog, but she actually touched the bag and felt him there. She's basically lying to us now," the distraught girl told ABC News.

Other passengers backed up the family's account on Twitter and Facebook.

United acknowledged Wednesday that the family said there was a dog in the carrier.

"However, our flight attendant did not hear or understand her, and did not knowingly place the dog in the overhead bin," the airline said in a statement.

She didn't knowingly know that when a distraught girl exclaimed that there was, in fact, a dog in the dog carrier, that the dog carrier contained a dog?

I hope there are a lot of NRA members on the jury for the inevitable lawsuit for intentional infliction of emotional distress, and they extend to United the same courtesy that United has extended to them.

Speaking of, Jordan Peterson said this about virtue-signalling corporations who kowtow to the radical Marxists who want to (eventually) slit their throats.

"People who are doing this at the corporate level will rapidly get their comeuppance... If you're operating within a capitalist environment like let's say the executives and management of Qantas, who are being paid disproportionately well, you don't also get to be a social radical. And you don’t get to salve your conscience for receiving a pay cheque that's 300 times the pay cheque of the average worker by pretending you're a social revolutionary. It's an appalling sleight of hand.

"In addition, you don't get to invite the radical leftists into your corporate utopia without opening the door to a major fifth column. If you are naive enough to think that the demand of the radicals for the transformation of your company is going to end with a few requests for language transformation then you're a complete bloody fool.

"It's staggering to me to watch the corporate elite types kowtow to the radical Marxists. They do it to virtue signal or because they’re feeling guilty or maybe because they're facing genuine pressure and don't want to stand up against it. But they're playing a game that will punish them intensely."

Well, we can only hope.

This is why I'm increasingly anti-corporation. If they want to get into bed with the hard left, that's their choice -- but don't expect any further favors from the right.

If corporate-types have some BDSM kink where they get off on political pressure or even outright political persecution -- well, I'm willing to do that for ya too, Sally.

I think it's time to begin telling these corporate enforces of leftwing cultural control:

Now You will be made to care.
