Professor Dragged Off Flight [on Anila Daulatzai]
by Gary Fouse
Anila Daulatzai (46) who is socio-cultural anthropologist at the Maryland Institute of Art, had boarded a Southwest flight from Baltimore to Los Angeles Tuesday when she noticed that two passengers had brought dogs on board. She objected, and before the dust and the fleas had settled, she had to be forcibly removed from the flight. She is now facing several charges for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest among other things. Parts of the the incident were caught on videotape.
"According to CBS, a witness said that the flight attendants spent a lot of time trying to get Daulatzai to just leave the plane. Bill Dumas, who filmed the scene on his cell phone, told CBS that Daulatzai was acting "odd" and the officers followed protocol. "She just lost control of the situation and she was way in over her head by the point that the police were trying to take her out," Dumas told CBS Baltimore. "
I have no idea why the Maryland Institute of Art needs a socio-cultural professor of anthropology, but I digress.
Apparently, Daulatzai's academic pursuits have to do with studying things like war widows in Afghanistan. Here are some samples of her work.
In the below video, Daulatzai is speaking in Zurich. Here she discusses Afghanistan and explains that Afghanis are considered "disposable" by capitalism, white supremacy, etc (7:30). It's the typical radical leftist, intellectual garbage full of incomprehensible psychobabble.
But wait a minute! Did you say, "Daulatzai"? That name rings a bell. Could it be that Anila is related to another leftist professor out here on the left coast? I am referring to Sohail Daulatzai, professor of cartoons at UC Irvine. Like Anila, he is also a far leftie. I have heard this character speak twice at UC Irvine. Sohail is an angry Malcolm X groupie who hails from Pakistan and has no love lost for his adopted country as well as Israel.
Well, I have heard Sohail Daulatzai speak twice, and much to his displeasure, I videotaped him both times. Here is one occasion. I will spare the reader the second.
Yes, Dear Reader, it appears there is a connection. In the Acknowledgments section of the book, "Terrifying Muslims" by Junaid Rana, the writer gives acknowledgement to Anila Daulatzai and Sohail Daulatzai consecutively.
Other public source documents, readily available on the Internet, indicate a family relation. Call it two peas in a pod. Both are far-leftie professors who rail about Islamophobia, America, white racism, and capitalism while blaming the West that countries like Afghanistan and Pakistan are so dysfunctional, which they have always been and always will be.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
