Videos: Pilots Speak Out Against Vaccine Mandate ‘Dictatorship’

“An ultimatum is not the right way to go about this.”

Two more pilots have spoken out publicly against airlines attempting to institute vaccine mandates in the wake of Southwest airlines cancelling hundreds of flights and then denying it has anything to do with pilots refusing to fly in protest.

Speaking with Tucker Carlson Tuesday night, Joshua Yoder, commercial pilot and co-founder of US Freedom Flyers, urged “I am not going to take a mandate. I am not going to be coerced into doing something I don’t believe in.”

“I believe in freedom,” Yoder continued, adding “I’m here to support the freedom of my fellow employees and all people across this country.” 

Explaining why he is against the mandates, Yoder said “My motive for resisting it is primarily religious for myself. Among my friends I saw a need. Many of us don’t want to take this. People were being coerced.”

“We have all the control and the control comes from a simple word, and that’s ‘no,'” Yoder noted, adding “We just don’t need to comply.”

He warned that if airlines try to force vaccines on pilots as per the government’s mandate, there will be a huge knock on effect on distribution and the shipping industry.

“The transportation sector is the heart and soul of this country. It’s a very delicate system. If there’s a disruption in one part of the system, it has a catastrophic effect among the rest of the systems which is going to effect commerce, it’s going to effect trade,” Yoder explained.

“If you have flights reduced by 30% because 30% of pilots are fired because they won’t take the vaccine, this is going to affect how your goods get here from overseas, how they are distributed to the store,” he said.

Yoder added, “The same thing is happening with the truckers, it’s happening in the shipping industry. Those Amazon boxes that typically show up in two days, you might be looking at three weeks.”

“If these companies fire us and they fire 30% of the workforce, aircraft are going to stop moving and it’s going to affect you. It’s going to affect your air travel and it’s going to affect the economy,” Yoder further warned.

Watch:

Speaking with Fox & Friends earlier in the day, commercial airline pilot Shawn Walker said he will not go along with the vaccine “ultimatum” for his employer, who he chose not to name on air.

“My wife and I, we looked at the research, we spoke with our medical professionals and we don’t believe it’s right for us,” Walker said.

He added, “We believe we have a choice, and we should have a choice. And so we’re going to continue working with groups like US Freedom Flyers to help all Americans who feel an ultimatum is not the right way to go about this.”

Speaking of his fellow pilots, Walker noted “They’re scared. Some of them are single dads, and they’re in a situation where they’re like, ‘Man, if I don’t, if I don’t succumb to this dictatorship, if you will, I may not be able to feed my children.’”

“People are frightened from the airline industry,” Walker continued, adding “They want to speak out. But there again, we can be attacked by our companies, we can be attacked by other people.”

“My health and my medical choice is more important to me than my career at this point,” he emphasised, warning that mandating vaccines for airline staff is only the beginning.

“There’s even bills on the table, like H.R. 4980, that’s really going after the passengers. They’re trying to push something through that says all passengers leaving any airport in the US or territory is going to have to be vaccinated,” Walker warned.

Watch:

Southwest Airlines continues to deny that thousands of flight cancellations are because pilots and staff staged a coordinated ‘sickout’ to protest against the vaccine mandates.

In a CNBC interview, CEO Gary Kelly again denied that flight cancellations were due to pilots revolting against vaccine mandates:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also rubbished the idea, and claimed vaccine mandates are “good for the economy”:

Her response prompted Carlson to respond “To say there is no evidence there is no evidence this is a direct result to standing up to Joe Biden’s mandates is a lie.”

“Lying, lying, lying… Over at the White House Biden’s top flack was doing what she does every day, lying, lying, lying…” Carlson added.

Also, this happened. Apparently:

    Pfizer CEO Bails On EU Testimony After Report Highlights ‘Secretive’ Vaccine Deal

    Published

    Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has bailed on an appointment to testify before the European Parliament’s special committee, where he was expected to face tough questions over secretive vaccine deals, Politico reports.

    Bourla was scheduled to appear before the panel on Oct. 10, alongside key officials involved in the EUs vaccine procurement process, in order to discuss how to respond to future pandemics. According to the report, “Other pharmaceutical executives have addressed the committee, including the CEO of Moderna and senior officials from AstraZeneca and Sanofi.”

    Bourla? Not so much.

    The committee’s chair, Belgian MEP Kathleen Van Brempt, told POLITICO she “deeply regrets” the decision taken by Pfizer.

    After a visit to BioNTech’s headquarters last week, Van Brempt had said in a written statement that she looked forward to discussions “with other CEOs” including “Mr. Albert Bourla, the CEO of Pfizer” on October 10. -Politico

    In early September, an audit repirt into the EU’s vaccine procurement strategy raised questions over Bourla’s relationship with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen before they struck a multibillion-euro vaccine deal.

    The report, by the European Court of Auditors, found that von der Leyen had been directly involved in preliminary negotiations for the EU’s biggest vaccine contract, for up to 1.8 billion doses of the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine, which was concluded in May 2021. This was a departure from the negotiating procedure followed with other contracts, where a joint negotiating team made up of officials from the Commission and member countries conducted exploratory talks. -Politico

    In April, von der Leyen admitted that she had been texting with Bourla for a month straight while they were negotiating the massive contract. Two months later, the texts disappeared, triggering accusations of maladministration by the EU’s ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly,” Reuters reported at the time.

    Bourla and von der Leyen’s cozy relationship was noted last year by the NYT, which Bourla told they had “developed a deep trust, because we got into deep discussions.”

    “She knew details about the variants, she knew details about everything. So that made the discussion, way more engaged.”

    And now Bourla won’t have to answer questions about it.

    According to the latest OECD data, Iceland continues to have one of the highest levels of antidepressant use in the world – with an average consumption of 16 daily doses per 100 inhabitants in 2021.

    In general, the northern countries are among the biggest consumers, with Canada and Sweden also showing a ratio of over 10 doses per 100 inhabitants per day. 

    Worth noting however is the absence of the United States from the data.

    As Statista’s Martin Armstrong shows in the infographic below, antidepressant use has become more widespread all around the world, with major increases from 2015 to 2020 or 2021 observed in Iceland, Portugal and Sweden, as well as Belgium and Greece.
