And so it begins…
The purge of conservatives…
The “othering” of Trump supporters…
An airline pilot threatened to “dump” his passengers and abandon them in Kansas if they didn’t behave.
But he wasn’t talking to all of his passengers.
He was specifically addressing Trump supporters and Trump voters.
Take a listen:

Patriots flying home from DC chanted "USA!" while still on runway. The pilot then threatened to "land this plane anywhere mid-flight, even if it’s in the middle of Kansas, if you don’t follow the rules."pic.twitter.com/DEVA2vowZS

“Dump people off.”
Is that not violent rhetoric?
We don’t know about you, but that sounds more of a threat or incitement to violence than anything President Trump said at his rally on Wednesday!
Yet this sort of treatment against Trump supporters is becoming more and more normalized.
The New York Post confirms this shocking story:
A fedup American Airlines pilot threatened to “dump” a plane filled with “USA” chanting President Trump supporters in Kansas if they didn’t “behave” during a flight out of Washington D.C. Friday, video shows.
“I’ll put this plane down in the middle of Kansas and dump people off, I don’t care,” the pilot can be heard saying over the loudspeaker in a video posted to Twitter.
“We will do that if that’s what it takes so, behave please,” he continues, exasperated.
Moments prior, passengers, many of them wearing MAGA hats, were shouting “USA” over and over again on the Phoenix-bound flight, according to another clip tweeted by Mindy Robinson, who unsuccessfully ran for congress in Nevada’s 3rd district last summer.
“We started chanting ‘USA’ …and the Captain came on said told us he’d drop us off in Kansas if he had to if we didn’t obey their every single rule,” Robinson wrote.
An AA spokesperson told The Post in an emailed statement the pilot was “emphasizing the importance of following crew member instructions and complying with mandatory face-covering policies.”
This story comes out just hours after Twitter and Facebook have BANNED the leader of the free world.
Conservatives are fearful that after Big Tech and the media attempt to destroy President Trump, they will come after his supporters next.
This is being called “the purge.”
LOL the pilot ended up threatening to “dump them off in Kansas” if they don’t shut up 😂🤣 https://t.co/ULmRLV7mjh

This video is quickly going viral on social media – and for good reason!
People were chanting USA.
They are patriots who love this country.
Unilad confirms the harsh treatment:
Aboard the American Airlines flight, packed with Trump supporters chanting their support for the lame duck POTUS, with many reportedly not wearing face coverings, the captain quickly became frustrated with their constant disruption and demanded they behaved, or else they’d be left thousands of miles from home.
Mindy Robinson, host of Red White and F You, was on the aircraft and shared a clip with the caption: ‘I’m on a plane full of patriots flying from D.C. to Phoenix and we started chanting USA… and the Captain came on said told us he’d drop us off in Kansas if he had to if we didn’t obey their every single rule. American Airlines is everything but American.’
She added: ‘If you remember, they were rude to me on the way too there because of my MAGA hat. Do these companies not understand how many of us there really are?’
Another account, named ‘a Patriot’s Point of View’, shared a similar clip from the flight. A recording of the pilot’s message was also shared, which was met with displeased ‘wows’ from the Trump supporters, with one heard saying: ‘Isn’t this American Airlines?’
The captain said: ‘This is the way it’s gonna be… it’s a four and a half hour flight to Phoenix. We’ll put this plane down in the middle of Kansas and dump people off — I don’t care. We will do that if that’s what it takes, so behave, please.’
American Airlines have defended the pilot, with a spokesperson telling the New York Post that he was ’emphasising the importance of following crew member instructions and complying with mandatory face-covering policies’.
They added: ‘At American, we take the safety of our customers seriously and we value the trust they place in our team to care for them throughout their journey.’
You’d think an airline that calls itself American Airline would have no problem with passengers expression patriotism towards America.
