An angry homophobic man pounced to attack another traveler at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport over the weekend, shouting obscenities, kicking and striking him. “Queers is what I’m upset about! This faggot right here,” he yelled to the onlookers, who quickly jumped into action to subdue him. The crowd of travelers was able to wrestle the attacker to the ground and hold him until police stepped in.

The video was captured by Andrew Kennedy who uploaded it to Youtube. He took the opportunity to have his brother, Neal Kennedy, sum up the incident: “We saw a very troubled man. We hope that he was under the influence of some kind of substance — because if he wasn’t and that’s his true personality then he’s going to have a very long road in front of him.”

    I could not get the video to load from here so I had to watch it on Youtube but wow. That guy is a little crazy. I am wondering if the people who stepped in were other passengers or undercover security, they jumped in pretty quick to hold the guy down before uniforms showed up.

    He’s already on someones list. Looks like he won’t be at Westboro Baptist Church this Sunday.

    I love how people like this sit there and say “God says its wrong to be Gay” but they can go and attack someone violently. I just don’t get what goes on in their little brains. This guy got exactly what he deserved too.

      I have a feeling he is going to get a little more depending on where he ends up. I don’t understand why people do this either, there is a big difference between speaking your mind and acting on it with the intention to cause harm to another person.

    So he has a phobia of gay people yet attack’s them…. makes no sense, shouldn’t he run the other way? I am not a homophobe. I do not like what they do, but that doesn’t mean I am afraid of them. Homophobe is a dumb word. So I suppose I am an Obamaphobe because I do not like what he does.

      That’s a very good point. Maybe we need a better word.
