Arabic men removed from plane for speaking Arabic, conservative radio talk host says men were 'rude' to speak Arabic

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, several marathonerson were on an American Airlines flight from Boston to Chicago. Two Arabic men were escorted off that plane -- because they were speaking Arabic. According to a news report, the men were not sitting together on the flight. That is all we know. See here and here.

This morning on a syndicated conservative radio talk show that will go nameless, one of the hosts said this about the Arabic men speaking Arabic on that flight:

". . . You know, that's just rude. Whether they were involved in anything or not has nothing to do with it, they KNOW that people are shell-shocked right now, they know that edges -- their nerves are raw right now, and they did that?"

I couldn't make that up.
