Mask mandates are for your own good! Even if they’re not actually good for you.
Video has been making the rounds recently that purportedly shows a woman with a two-year-old asthmatic child being removed from an American Airlines flight because the child was having trouble breathing and didn’t want to wear a mask:

Wow. American Airlines kicked a 2 year old boy with asthma off a plane and had police waiting for him + his mom because a power tripping flight attendant Carl lost his humanity. The last thing you’d do to a child suffering from an asthma attack is force a mask on them. pic.twitter.com/pWuVXJrFps

If this footage depicts what we’re told it depicts, then this is a legitimate outrage.

That poor kid. It’s absolutely disgraceful that anyone would even consider forcibly imposing a flimsy face covering on a minor or on anyone who are unable to do so for various reasons in the first place anyway.

If there was ever an example of how sick, twisted, and evil Covidstan has become, this is it. Hell won't be hot enough for the depraved ghouls creating and enabling this insanity (sorry, not sorry).

This is absolutely HORRIFIC and truly heartbreaking😭Everyone who facilitated or stood by and allowed this to happen should be ASHAMED of themselves. Where is the kindness and humanity???

Nothing on American’s Twitter feed as far as we can tell. But we’re sure that our concerns are very important to them and will be dealt with as soon as is humanly possible.
