Unusual – protective mask against Govt-19. Local media reported on Thursday (Dec. 16) that a masked passenger on a United Airlines flight was forced to disembark at Fort Lauderdale Airport in Fla.

Apparel on the plane! He says someone from Cape Correa is tired of wearing the mask. “I think the best way to explain absurdity is absurdity,” the NBC2 reporter said on Twitter.
In his interview with NBC2, he compared himself to the African-American Rosa Parks, a symbol of the struggle for civil rights in the United States, who refused to give up his seat to a white man on a bus in 1955. Laws in force at the time.
“In this country, every change is brought about by ordinary people,” he explained seriously. “Rosa Parks is not popular. She changed the course of history.
