In the Covid Era nothing is holier than the mask.
Not even killing Bin Laden.
From the Navy Times:
ATLANTA — A former Navy SEAL who has said he killed Osama bin Laden has been banned by Delta Air Lines after removing his face mask during a flight.
Robert O’Neill tweeted about his ban on Thursday, and the airline confirmed the action.
“Part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta is the requirement to acknowledge our updated travel policies, which includes wearing a mask,” the airline said in a statement. “Failure to comply with our mask-wearing mandate can result in losing the ability to fly Delta in the future.”
All major U.S. airlines require passengers to wear face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Delta says it has banned more than 100 passengers for violating the rule.
O’Neill posted a selfie showing himself, with no mask, on a Delta Connection flight Wednesday from Minneapolis to Newark, New Jersey. Other passengers in the photo, including a man across the aisle who was wearing a Marine Corps hat, were wearing masks. The tweet was later deleted.
In another tweet Thursday, O’Neill said, “Thank God it wasn’t @Delta flying us in when we killed bin Laden… we weren’t wearing masks…”
And fromThe New York Post:
The former Navy SEAL who shot and killed Osama bin Laden bragged about not wearing a “dumb ass” mask on a packed flight — an apparent dig at a face-covered passenger in a Marines cap.
“I’m not a p—y,” tweeted former SEAL Team Six member Robert O’Neill, 44 — alongside a photo of him smiling in his seat.
The only other person clearly in the shot is an elderly man wearing a mask and United States Marine Corps hat, and followers took it as a direct attack on his fellow passenger — with some even noting it was the same slur as he had used for the al Qaeda leader.
“Neither is the guy in the USMC hat,” one twitter user replied, referring to O’Neill’s slur. “And once again he’s serving his country by doing what he can to protect your right to be wrong.”
“You’re endangering a veteran’s life. how patriotic,” another person responded, while others noted the elderly passenger was “more susceptible than you are and smarter also !!”
O’Neill later deleted the tweet and claimed in a separate post sharing the NY Post’s article that: “This was not a dig at the Marine behind me. I love Marines…”
Either way, O’Neill’s distaste for people wearing masks was clear.
“China told you to wear a mask. Look down… you’re wearing a mask. I’m not,” he wrote in a series of tweets — also insisting, “Make no mistake.. this ‘pandemic’ was sent to you by China.”
“Do you remember the complete, incompetent morons buying all of the toilet paper? They’re the ones telling you to wear masks now,” he insisted in his online tirade.
“I know more about biological warfare than most of you. We were trained. These dumb ass masks do nothing. Nothing,” he insisted, adding that wearing a bandanna “does more harm than good.”
Killing the most hated terrorist in American History should get you a pass for just about anything.
But what do I know.
There's mass hysteria to contend with.
