The Shocking Politicization of Everything


The head of a union representing flight attendants from 17 airlines said the people who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday should be banned from getting back on planes and flying home.

 “Some of the people who traveled in our planes yesterday participated in the insurrection at the Capitol today,”  Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA said in a statement. “Their violent and seditious actions at the Capitol today create further concern about their departure from the DC area.”

“Acts against our democracy, our government, and the freedom we claim as Americans must disqualify these individuals from the freedom of flight."

Now, the House Homeland Security Committee is asking the FBI and TSA to add alleged perpetrators to the no-fly list.

But note well, no one has been convicted of anything. And if there are convictions, it is the job of a judge to determine punishment not the head of a flight attendants union or anti-Trump Democrats in the House.

Protest with BLM that includes rioting, looting and burning, and you get to walk (or fly) without any repercussions from the judicial system, try that in favor of Trump and the Left throws out the rule of law in favor of its own immediate punishment.

The country is going down a very bad road where the rule of law is trashed in favor of arbitrary determination of the guilty and bizarre selective arbitrary determination of punishment.

It is here, the politicization of everything. We have reached the next phase in a Mao-style cultural revolution in the United States.

Can Chinese-style social credit scores, which limit activities for those with low scores, be far behind?

  1. I would say that the behavior of most individuals has become more aggressive thanks to some of the anonymity provided by social media. In the words of Mike Tyson, "Social media made you all way too comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it." Add politics to the mix and you get a recipe for our current state of affairs.

  2. If you believe in Liberty you might want to use a plane to escape the coming hell while they still let you fly.

  3. They won't be able to get on a plane without a COVID passport anyway.

  4. Considering the conduct of the “authorities” and their accomplices in the corporate media, in context especially directed against the Orange Man, especially during the 2020 elections some “insurrection” and “sedition” is warranted.
