Aside from this being a government mandate, this is not a political Red vs. Blue. We have the government and media outright lying about an event that many people flat out know that's not true. There are families and extended families and workers all affected by this, not down political lines.
The government, private companies, and media are all lying to us about a non-political event (again, in the sense of red vs blue).
"The pilots and their union can't admit that there was an organized sick-out, as that is illegal according to their collective bargaining agreement. So, we can say that the reports of a sick-out are completely false, as no one can publicly contradict or refute us. Let's go."
The Biden Administration is so scared of what the globalists will do to them if they don't stay on message, that they've decided to adamantly lie whenever they think they can get away with it.
