Over the weekend a brave US veteran pilot who uses the TikTok account @cellsaucenutrition posted a TikTok video arguing his airline’s vaccine mandate amounts to an ultimatum between “feeding his family” and freedom of choice.”
The pilot, who is a leader of the US Freedom Flyers organization says, “I’ve been an airline pilot for 18 years and now I’m facing an ultimatum… I’m being told that in order to continue my career as an airline pilot, I must be vaccinated.”
On Monday night the pilot, whose first name is Shawn, went on with Rob Schmitt on Newsmax.
Shawn told Rob Schmitt he does not believe his airline has the right to fire him over this vaccine and he is willing to speak up about it, adding, “I think my job is a small sacrifice to pay for all of the Americans who deserve their medical freedom.”
Shawn also said he is not alone and the numbers are growing. “It’s growing by tens of thousands. I mean thousands every day where the number is tens of thousands. Honestly its growing so fast now we can’t even keep track. I think a lot of people were afraid to speak out. They didn’t know what to do. They’re worried about possible backlash, possible termination from their jobs or their careers, and everyone has to draw a line in the sand. And after speaking to airline pilots, they’re emotionally distressed. So, I had to speak out for everyone because we’re all a little bit afraid.”
