German police sue female American professor for Nazi slur

German police are suing a female American academic after she called them ‘Nazis’ in a row over liquids in her carry-on bag at Frankfurt International Airport.

Professor of Peace and Security Studies at Georgetown University, C Christine Fairs, is alleged to have hurled abuse at the officers after being refused boarding.

Police say the 49-year-old woman became ‘unreasonable and irritated’ when they told her she had too many liquids in her carry-on during a screening for explosives.

It was at this point, police say, that she called them ‘f****** b*******’ and ‘f******* German Nazi police’ – claims denied by Fairs. 

She instead claims the Nazi comments were indirectly about a young, fellow traveller sporting a ‘Hitler Youth’ haircut who seemed to have avoided the attention of airport staff.   

In a 4,000 word description of the events published in the Huffington Post, Fairs wrote: ‘I was literally framed, arrested and, for all intents and purposes, robbed by the Frankfurt airport and German state police.’

Adding about the fellow traveller:  ‘[Police] were too busy … to notice the fellow conspicuously sporting the preferred coiffure of the Hitler’s Youth.’

She described the events further in her Huffington Post blog: ‘As I put my tampons, cruddy travel panties and long-worn travel bras back into my suitcase, I muttered to myself while shaking my head “The crack German police have seized my deodorant…but they don’t seem to care about that Nazi-looking dude over there!” 

‘And, as I was still shaking my head in disbelief, I was actually arrested.’  

The altercation has led to preliminary criminal proceedings being brought against her on suspicion of slander, plus a £181-fine (€207) for any subsequent legal expenses.

Fair previously made headlines following a vitriolic disagreement with a Muslim ex-colleague. 

The academic was incensed after Asra Q Nomani, ‘lifelong liberal’, wrote an article about voting for Donald Trump as a Muslim immigrant.  

In a Washington Post article, Nomani said she was motivated by a distaste for Obama’s edging around using the phrase ‘Islamic extremism’, the cost of Obamacare and what she saw as Obama’s failure to help poor and rural Americans.

Two days after that, on December 6, Nomani says, Fair wrote a foul-mouthed Facebook rant titled ‘An open letter to Asra Nomani and her Trump-supporting ilk.’

In a screenshot of the alleged letter – which is no longer visible to non-friends on Fair’s account – Fair admits to privately telling Nomani to ‘go to Hell’ and ‘f**k off’ after a ‘disingenuous’ call for dialogue from the Muslim woman.

The post notes that ‘my critical tweets did not violate Twitter rules’ and complaints about Nomani going to the Georgetown supervisors.

‘My social media does not mention my employer,’ the post says. ‘It is not their business to whom I tell to “F**k off” or “go to hell”.

‘Would this poltroon call her neighbor’s boss if she had an argument that escalated to her neighbor telling her “F**k you”? Probably not.’

The post derides Nomani as ‘neither a journalist nor an educationalist’ but ‘a sensationalist trafficking in controversial positions for no obvious intellectual reasons’. 

It concludes: ‘So again, Ms Nomani “F**K YOU, GO TO HELL.”‘   

Nomani says that Fair sent another tweet, calling her a ‘crybully’, on December 22 – one month on from the initial barrage.
