Legacy media keeps claiming that Southwest Airlines flight shutdowns over the weekend were not the result of pilots walking out opposing the vax mandate.
To be clear: None of the information from Southwest, its pilots union, or the FAA indicates that this weekend’s cancellations were related to vaccine mandates. t.co/G1fLODSIDS

However, this is exactly what that was.
The fact that thousands of Southwest employees walked off the job protesting the COVID vaccine mandate forcing the airline to cancel more than 1000 flights is not getting enough attention. Media will make sure you don’t see it but keep watching, it won’t be the last protest!

As a loyal Southwest customer who has been flying safely throughout the pandemic and is utterly opposed to vaccine mandates, I’m asking, stop the madness before more damage is done.t.co/NSsm9IUIyJ

Tucker Carlson even interviewed a pilot saying that’s what that was:
We’re at that point where censorship is so bad, that presstitute media can make any claim, regardless of how outrageous and fake it is, because there are zero checks on them and they can do whatever they want.
Southwest blamed the weather, and yet somehow they were the only airline that was shut down.
This photo was just sent to me of a grounded Southwest plane flying a Gadsden flag out of the cockpit. The Hero Pilots at Southwest and other Airlines deserve our support. True patriots worthy of the American Freedom Fighter tradition.
Don’t Tread On Me.

Then, they blamed Biden:
CNBC: Southwest CEO says never wanted Covid vaccine mandate but Biden forced hand

Another lie. There is no federal vaccine mandate. There’s no executive order, no federal regulation.
It was a press release.
Only a matter of time before southwest reverses the mandates. The pressure is on now for other essential businesses. United you are strong, divided you fall

Most people won’t ever know it is happening at all.
However, a three day “sick out” from drivers would collapse this country.
