As a polarized America gears up for a heated 2020 election, it seems hyper-partisan politics has started to infiltrate the travel industry.
Liberals scream at people to STAY HOME for “public safety” while conservatives think the media and politicians are determined to further restrict freedoms by blowing the pandemic out of proportion.
And when it comes to flying, a recent poll reveals just how different both parties feel.
SFGate reports a majority of Dems (59 percent) do not feel comfortable flying – period. In contrast, just 42 percent of Republicans feel the same.
So what’s with the nearly 20 percent difference?
Our nation is so polarized, liberals think by choosing to fly on a plane you’re evil and reckless and essentially consenting to kill grandma.
And conservatives think by shutting down travel and forcing mandates onto free citizens you’re violating their personal freedom.
In the middle of the hyper-partisan politics are regular ol’ Americans just trying to take a summer vacation or travel for work.
Liberals Love The Shame Game
Of course, it seems like “eco-conscious” liberals are always looking for ways to discourage air travel.
From shaming people for flying for work to hosting massive protests (like the spoiled teen who refused to go to school until climate change was addressed), they always make themselves the center of attention with ridiculous accusations.
So actually, it’s really no surprise they’re determined to make conservatives feel like they’re endangering the entire world for traveling on a plane.
Even though everyone is forced to wear masks (which liberals claim is the solution to keep everyone “safe”), IT’S NOT ENOUGH they scream!
Conservatives Are Biting The Bullet
Most conservatives I know despise the mask mandate.
They hate it.
Not only is it questionable if masks even work (especially when people are not washing their reusable masks, are constantly touching their face, and wearing them below their mouth) – but they’re also uncomfortable.
Do conservatives like wearing masks on a 4-hour flight?
Of course not.
But knowing they can’t fly unless they follow the stupid airline rules – and also not wanting to get “banned” – they grin and bear it.
As it seems, conservatives would rather have the freedom to fly than stay confined to their home like a prisoner.
So why are liberals so afraid to fly?
Well perhaps some of them actually aren’t and they’re just looking for another reason to bash President Trump for not forcing people to stay home.
Any chance they can blame Trump for something, they will.
Everything is political.
But hey, if liberals want to “protest” air travel and stay home…
… then that’s cool too.
The airport will be a much more pleasant place without “emotional support” animals running around and defecating all over the plane anyways!
