Democrats are scrambling to find an excuse for one growing trend

Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate has been a disaster.

It has led to major disruption in various sectors of the economy.

Now Democrats are scrambling to find an excuse for one growing trend.

Southwest Airlines experienced roughly one quarter of its flights being canceled due to employees participating in a “sick out.”

Pilots and other airline employees did not want to abide by the vaccine mandates imposed at the behest of Joe Biden.

People calling out “sick” at Southwest sparked a trend known as the #FreedomFlu, where opponents of the draconian mandates use their sick days.

The Biden administration and other members of the COVID regime have tried to discount the #FreedomFlu as nothing more than inclement weather issues or other mundane causes.

But other airlines’ cancelations hovered around the norm of 2-3%.

And even Southwest CEO Gary Kelly admitted his arm was twisted by Biden to impose the unconstitutional vaccine mandate.

Kelly said:

“I’ve never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate. I’m not in favor of that. Never have been . . . But the executive order from President Biden mandates that all federal employees and then all federal contractors, which covers all the major airlines, have to have a [vaccine] mandate . . . in place by Dec. 8, so we’re working through that.”

Kelly has since issued an apology for the major disruption that took place and inconvenienced so many customers.

Both average Joes and celebrities are pushing back against the mandates.

Rock legends like Eric Clapton and Van Morrison have opposed COVID regime restrictions like vaccine mandates and crippling lockdowns.

NBA star point guard Kyrie Irving is sacrificing his entire 2021-22 season by not getting vaccinated because of a strict New York City mandate decreed by communist Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The COVID regime is finally losing ground because people are finally getting sick of the madness.
