ICYMI 10/14/20| Things are starting to get out of hand in this country. Growing up I was always baffled when I saw Black Americans beating beaten, having milk poured on then or shamed for sitting at a counter or being in a ‘white area.’ When I saw videos of the Holocaust, I used to wonder, how the **** could the people of Germany let that happen in their homeland.
It is only now, after 4 years of dehumanization by the left and their hatchet men in the media that I can completely see EXACTLY how these things happened. I hate to say this, but I 100% believe it to be true, there is a formidable contingent of the Democrat Party that wants to see all Trump supporters and Republicans dead. period. Full stop.
The Dehumanization and denial of services of and to conservatives is only heating up as time goes by. Watching events like this makes me sick to my stomach. How did we get here so quickly?
[Opinion & Speculation] Numerous eyewitnesses made videotapes recording their personal reaction to watching a fellow passenger on a Southwest Airlines flight be removed from a flight for lowering his face mask, allegedly to eat a snack.
“So a young black man wearing a @realDonaldTrump mask, is #harassed by a @SouthwestAir employee because he’s eating on the flight. Witnesses report the man only removed the mask to eat. #MAGA#Trump2020,” Bernard Kerik posted on Twitter, Wednesday.
On the video is seen a man talking to a passenger, a Black man with a “Black voices for Trump hat” and a “Trump” facemask, instructing him that he had to leave because the Flight Crew was refusing to take off until he was removed.
The passengers around him were very confused about the removal, with one woman making a video and saying that she was a frequent flyer with South West Airlines, and wanted to know the airline’s policy about eating with masks on, which she was not aware of.
“Please tell me the policy that says we can not remove our mask to eat,” a woman said. “This is about his hat, not his mask,” she said.
“Yes, it is about his hat,” a passenger sitting near the Black man said.
The airline representative refused to answer about any policy, only speaking to the man he was trying to remove him, threatening to have him arrested if he did not deplane and cooperate. A man sitting next to the woman who was videotaping said he would leave with the Black man, and a woman sitting one row behind said she saw the whole thing and the man had only lowered his mask to eat and had made no trouble for anyone over masks.
The whole shocking thing was captured on video.
This outrageous treatment of this man happens at the same time President Donald J. Trump is getting a large portion of the Black American voter base, and the Democrats are very upset about that.

“This morning Southwest Airlines ejects a passenger for lowering a Trump face mask to eat nuts. Does this appear to be politically motivated? #Southwest,” a supporter of Trump’s who posted the video, wrote.
He could have a case. He is wearing a “Black voices for Trump hat”, Trump 2020 mask & the two flight attendants who insisted he be removed were black. So maybe they didn’t like his message? pic.twitter.com/MCBKKzwvmV

Many people reacted to the video with suspicions about the removal being political revenge, and not mask policy.

A Southwest Frequent Flyer posted in reaction to the video, Jensen Sebastian said, “tomorrow never will I fly southwest again!! Its a political stunt and def unconstitutional. Sick!”
While I do not know that it is unconstitutional, it surely appears to be a politically motivated form of harassment that likely cost this man a lot of time and money to remedy.
Another frequent traveler asked,”Replying to @Grant503 and @almostjingoSince when did they have this policy? I’ve flown several times in the past few months and was able to lower my mask and eat / drink with no fuss. Same as in the terminals waiting to board…”
Meredith Baxter, a poter wrote, “You can eat when you sit in your seat. We do it all the time grabbing breakfast for my kid on the way in. This was BS. Plus the lady said he pulled it down to eat. I love the way people stood up for him I would have walked out too”
Ask yourself, is this the America you want your kids to grow up in? I do not like socialism or Joe Biden, but never in a million years would I even consider telling someone with a Che Guevara shirt that they would be refused service.
Provided that we have the story right and the passenger did not commit an actual violation, and judging by the eyewitness accounts and how calmly the man in the mask left the plane, I am inclined to believe his story, this behavior has no place in the so called ‘land of the free.’
