The Southwest Airlines ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Narrative Appears to Be Crashing and Burning”

Well, that’s just fantastic, but it’s hard to imagine that Southwest would have issued the same statement, much less initiated an investigation, if a pilot had concluded his greeting to the passengers with “Black Lives Matter.” In fact, in May 2020, a Southwest flight attendant got into a long conversation with a passenger over a book he was reading, Robin DiAngelo’s racist white-guilt propaganda tome White Fragility. The passenger turned out to be Doug Parker, the CEO of American Airlines (who was apparently flying Southwest because he couldn’t get a seat on a plane flown by his own airline). This allegedly heartwarming incident got a glowing write-up in Insider, and there wasn’t a whisper from Southwest about how “public expression of personal opinions while on duty is unacceptable.”
