Recently, Southwest Airlines pilots protested against the vaccine mandate, resulting in massive cancellations and interruptions of flights that have caused heated discussions. The video describing why a pilot spoke out against the vaccine mandate for airline employees has been widely shared and has exceeded 2 million views.
The pilot, Shawn Andrew Walker, described the dilemma that trapped him between livelihood and freedom due to the vaccine mandate. He said: “The situation goes far beyond health. We the American people who fought for freedom for 257 years, we go around the world spreading ideas of freedom and democracy, we help other countries and people fight for their freedoms, while ours are being stripped away.”
“You may think being forced to wear a mask or get a vaccination is insignificant. But when you begin to compile mandate after mandate and loss of freedom after freedom, it becomes very significant,” Shawn added.
Candace Owens, a conservative author, talk show host, and other celebrities, also shared Walker’s video to prove that pilots are frustrated with the vaccine mandate and are fighting against it.
Benny Johnson, a political columnist, commented, “This is the single bravest thing I have seen in years. God bless these Pilots. The heroes we need right now.”
