Masking corporate fascism

Yesterday after visiting family, I flew back via United frequent flyer miles. As I entered the airport, I dutifully donned my two-layer micro fiber cloth mask with an embedded internal pouch for an additional HEPA filter. Probably the best mask aside from an N95. I had a nice chat with the attendant at the check-in desk who tried to convince me that I was not really as ugly as my Real ID driver's license photo.

Fortunately, I was not arrested for failing to don my mask while masticating an expensive but unidentifiable sandwich. I then made my way through the serpentine TSA line and had a brief but polite discussion with the TSA agent who asked me to remove my mask in order to verify that I matched my ugly license photo.

When boarding the plane, I scanned my boarding pass and an alarm immediately went off while a red alert flashed on the gate agent's screen. It was a sentence of about 10 words, beginning with "Do not board with...". I couldn't read the rest. I thought oh, great, I'm being cancelled for my political beliefs just like Nick Fuentes.

Fortunately, the gate agent gave me a huge smile and waved me on. The flight was exceptionally smooth and fast; we must have caught the jet stream running in our favor. I settled into a sound sleep slouched insecurely against the window only to be awakened by two stern flight attendants urgently rapping my arm. I thought, what - was my snoring disturbing the other passengers?

Pulling out an earplug, I heard one of them mumble something about masks while urgently thrusting a handful of bright blue masks in my direction. Puzzled, I could only utter a surprised "what?" Mumbling again, she pointed to her nose - that is, to an unsightly protrusion that vaguely resembled one beneath her all-encompassing face diaper. In ape-like mimicry, I touched my nose, the lower 3/4" of which was proudly and tightly covered by my very own diaper.

I pulled my mask up a bit and made an obvious effort to re-seal it against my nose. This seemed to satisfy her. Nevertheless she wrote down my name and gave me an official-looking notice regarding mask rules.

Was it something I said? No - upon reflection, all my interactions were polite and friendly. Perhaps it was something my mask said. Yeah, that must have been it:

"This Is What Tyranny Looks Like"

 

 

Ironically, United exhibited the epitome of corporate tyranny - that is, Fascism. Today in America, the Deep State and the Democrat Party are delegating enforcement of tyrannical censorship and coercive societal control to corporate interests. The degree of control being exercised is too aggressive for the State to attempt directly, at least for now

Both Mussolini and Hitler merged state and business leadership into a form of corporatism referred to as Fascism. We see it today with Big Tech censorship, corporate cancel culture, and corporate-infused Critical Race Theory (CRT). Corporate interests benefit hugely from this power arrangement, and the resultant monopolistic control.

As a result, we have the insane requirement that people in airports and on planes wear ineffective face masks which the CDC says are not necessary. Americans, once a free people, must now kotow to corporate directives.

I bet the next time I fly somewhere on holiday, the same thing will happen and I'll be banned from flying for the rest of my life. All for visibly displaying a token of resistance to our Fascist masters.

I hope you don’t think masking is ending anytime soon, by Joe Strader, American Thinker, June 15, 2021.

Financial Censorship Of America First, Michelle Malkin, VDare, June 15, 2021:

Another day, another de-banking. Imagine a ruthless country where peaceful citizens who fearlessly defend their heritage, their families and their faith can wake up in the morning and find themselves cut off from their entire life savings with no explanation and no recourse...

That country is America in 2021....

On Tuesday, 33-year-old Lauren Witzke received a terse notice from her bank, Wells Fargo.... Her entire life savings of roughly $15,500 had been transferred to "loss prevention." ... The 2020 Delaware Senate GOP candidate is an outspoken Christian conservative activist and supporter of former President Donald Trump who peacefully exercised her First Amendment rights at the Jan. 6 Capitol rally....

In other words: Lauren Witzke has a big fat target on her back for threatening the powers that be in Big Government and Big Business. After the Jan. 6 protest, she has encountered obstacles to flying unimpeded across the country to participate in political rallies and events. She cannot check into flights online, is swabbed for explosives and has "SSSS" ("secondary security screening selection") marked on her tickets. That's a designation made by the federal Transportation Security Administration, which keeps a secret list of untold thousands of American citizens targeted for undisclosed reasons as "security" threats.

As I've previously reported in my columns and latest book, "Open Borders Inc.," Wall Street is in bed with social justice radicals and deep-state bureaucrats who've erected America's very own version of the Chinese social credit system in which political dissent is flagged, shunned, punished and eradicated....

We've gone far beyond cancel culture. This is not merely about being silenced. It's about being robbed, bankrupted and destroyed by woke capital and swamp oppressors. No one is safe....

Ted Cruz Slams Airline Masking Laws As ‘Performative Theater’, The Federalist, June 16, 2021:

Cruz said that in a recent 11-hour flight to Israel, flight attendants woke passengers up if their masks fell even slightly below their noses while sleeping.

“This is performative theater. This is not science, this is not keeping anyone safe,” Cruz said. ” One way to encourage people to be vaccinated is for their actually to be a difference in what you can do after you’ve been vaccinated. And I think repealing this requirement and allowing people who have been vaccinated to choose not to wear a mask on an airplane would increase demand, increase travel, and would tie the policy to the science.”
