At the start of boarding of an American Airlines flight from Seattle to Dallas – Fort Worth, a passenger at SeaTac airport’s gate D10 took advantage of the opportunity of a full flight of passengers to declare his allegiance to Adolf Hitler and plead for the start of a race war.
The man offers a Nazi salute, yelling “sieg heil!” and “heil Hilter!” before offering his recommended course of action while leaning on a rollaboard bag.
There’s not safe for work language in this video, even Hitler allegiance aside.

Just another day of air travel. So maybe what’s most striking about the incident is that American Airlines was boarding group 8 when this happened – so he was either on a basic economy fare, or triggered by needing to gate check his carry on. That, and that an American Airlines agent is on a walkie talking reporting the incident but seems otherwise unphased.
Update: This occurred on November 20, and the passenger was arrested:
