Carson Daly Jetblue

Carson Daly Jetblue, Carson Daly’s now-infamous suggestion that gays wouldn’t have been able to stop the JetBlue Airways pilot who experienced a mid-flight meltdown led many in the blogosphere to point to the case of 9/11 hero Mark Bingham.
Now, the mother of the openly gay Bingham, who joined several passengers in storming the cckpit of United Airlines Flight 93 after it was hijacked during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is speaking out against Daly’s remarks.
“Yes, my gay son was known in our family for bringing me flowers on my birthday and Mother’s Day,” Alice Hoagland tells TMZ. “He also was known for careening down the rugby pitch, and, on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, for charging unarmed down the aisle of a doomed Boeing 757 to face knife-wielding Islamist thugs in a hijacked cckpit…no one among his pick-up team of fellow passengers was asking ‘Are you straight? Are you gay?’”
“The world has its share of strong, heroic gay men,” Hoagland concludes. “Gay men in sports uniforms and military uniforms have been winning America’s games and fighting America’s battles for a long time: quietly, humbly, and in the face of vicious bigotry.”
