The flying hysteria continues with liberals around the world staging protests and looking down upon anyone who dares to consider flying as an option.
And if you do board an airplane, whether for work or vacation, liberals think you are a horrible person who is destroying the world.
This bizarre flight-shaming trend is all in the name of “climate change” – and you won’t believe how far some people are taking it.
From dropping an extra $600 to avoid flying to adding over 24 hours of travel time to their commute – this latest trend proves just how far-gone liberals really are.
No – We Don’t Feel Sorry For You
NBC News tells a story of a “haggard traveler” who was “so tired” from his 24-hour work commute.
Instead of simply flying, this guy decides to take a train – and then expects everyone to feel sorry for him.
Portraying himself as a martyr, he is quoted saying things like traveling by plane “doesn’t even exist” in his mind.
Hey buddy… if you willingly choose to spend 24 hours cramped on a train to travel for work… then that is all you.
We don’t feel sorry for you, we think you’re insane.
And the fact that you have the luxury to give up 24 hours of your life for some faux-moral cause ESPECIALLY does not make us feel sorry for you.
Elitism To The Max
Proud American Traveler told you the story of a Swedish teen who gained worldwide attention by refusing to go to school until her climate change concerns were addressed.
Turns out her mother is just as crazy and also took a pledge to “end flying” – which also ended her career.
And apparently other adults are actually following in the footsteps of this mother and child by staging their own protests – even willing to give up their livelihood to avoid the “evils” of flying.
One professional musician told her sob story of how she simply couldn’t travel to the United States to continue her career because she would have to board an airplane.
And as she tells her ridiculous story, she does so while sipping a cup of tea (you really can’t make this stuff up).
NBC News reported:
“As a musician, I knew exactly how much she was giving up,” the harpist told NBC News over a cup of tea just steps away from the Parliament building where Greta has been holding her protests.
In 2018, the harpist turned down an opportunity to tour the United States because it would mean flying.
“It’s something that you don’t just say no to,” she admits, explaining that musicians have to travel to get international recognition.
Her concern about climate took precedence, she said.
“I don’t feel that it’s important to have the biggest career possible anymore,” she said. “It’s important to make a difference in more important matters than music. I want to be on the right side of history.”
Wow, it must be nice to have the money to simply quit your career all in the name of “saving the planet.”
But hey, for the rest of us, we have to work.
And if our job requires us to be in a different state or country – we get on an airplane and fly.
Because that’s what responsible adults do.
See You In The Skies
Sure, it can be annoying to travel by plane at times.
We know airline companies are not our friends and the TSA is eagerly waiting to confiscate our toothpaste – but we also know flying is part of life.
And the pathetic attempt to shame mom and dad for taking their children on a family vacation isn’t going to work.
Sure, if we have the vacation time and feel like taking a cross-country train vacation – we’ll do it.
But not because we’re worried about climate change.
And when we board our plane like responsible adults to travel for work, we’ll do that without shame or apology too.
Because we live in the real world and understand that traveling by plane is an efficient and cost-effective way to get from Point A to Point B.
So while you stage your glorified temper-tantrum from the ground sipping your tea and thinking you’re changing the world – we’ll be waving to you from the skies.
