Liberal Karen should be the next bobblehead figurine. Exhibit A: a mask-loving woman’s irrational hypocrisy was actually taken so far, she had to be taken into FBI custody. “The mid-flight kerfuffle allegedly escalated over an argument about face masks despite both passengers not wearing a mask or not wearing a face-covering properly” reports Breitbart News.
The ordeal, which was caught on video and immediately went viral shooting up to over six million views, involves the woman not only screaming, but punching the elderly gentleman. The Delta flight was traveling from Tampa Bay, Florida to Atlanta, Georgia when the woman wearing a mask on her chin berated the older man for not having a mask on.
She was standing in the aisle of the plane “getting in the face of the older man who is sitting down in his seat.”
“Put your f***ing mask on,” the woman demands, to which the man replies, “I’m eating.”
He then threatens to dump a drink on her head, and she challenges the man, “Stand your a** up.”
The man rebuts, “Sit down Karen!”
The pejorative term “Karen” is slang for a middle-aged white woman who is angry, obnoxious, and entitled.
A flight stewardess attempts to calm the woman to no avail. A male flight attendant asks the woman, “Do you want the police to meet you on the ground?”
The woman asks, “What about him?”
She screams at the man, “Mask up!” Then she orders the flight crew to make the man put on his mask.
The two passengers exchange insults, and then the fuming woman punches the man in the face.
The man reacts by saying, “Now you’re going to jail! That’s assault! You’re going to jail! As soon as we get to Atlanta, you’re going to jail!”
The woman appears to wind up for another punch, but a flight attendant restrains her. The woman screams at the man and then spits in his face. “That’s double going to jail,” the man yells.
A flight attendant uses the beverage cart to push the woman away from the man.
The man tells the flight crew, “Look, she punched me. She slashed my face.”
The woman interrupts by shrieking, “Put your f***ing mask on!” She once again instructs the flight crew to tell him to put his mask on.
The woman is then escorted to the back of the plane.
The video then jumps ahead to after the plane landed at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Another female passenger explains, “She went crazy on the airplane — punched this man in the face, spit on him, scratched him.” She added that the detained woman “poured hot water” on her leg.
The Atlanta Police Department issued a statement regarding the “disturbance” involving an “unruly passenger on a Delta flight” that led to “the injury of fellow passengers and Delta employees.”
“When the aircraft arrived at the gate, officers were able to meet with exiting passengers who advised that the suspect, Ms. Patricia Cornwall had caused a disturbance while in the air,” authorities noted. “Based on the statements gathered and visible evidence, officers detained Ms. Cornwall and contacted the on-call FBI agent.”
“The officers then relocated with Ms. Cornwall to the domestic Atlanta Police precinct where FBI agents responded and took custody of Ms. Cornwall,” the statement read.

Freedom in the UK: Johnson ends ‘all Covid measures’ including mask wearing
The United Kingdom is enjoying a huge announcement. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced “the end of all Covid measures introduced to combat the Omicron variant – compulsory mask-wearing on public transport and in shops, guidance to work from home and vaccine certificates – from next week” reports The Guardian.
For those with coronavirus, the legal requirement for them to self-isolate will also be allowed to lapse when the regulations expire on March 24. Johnson also announced an immediate end for students to wear masks at secondary schools.
“From tomorrow we will no longer require face masks in classrooms and the Department for Education will shortly remove national guidance on their use in communal areas,” Johnson told the Commons.
“In the country at large we will continue to suggest the use of face coverings in enclosed or crowded spaces, particularly when you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, but we will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalise anyone who chooses not to wear one.”
The Prime Minister said Covid data was “showing that time and again this government got the toughest decisions right” and that plan B rules that were put in place in December could all be lifted from next Thursday, the day after a pre-existing review point.
The Guardian notes Britain had expected Johnson would soon be ending work-from-home guidance and the mandate to show a certificate proving vaccination or proof of a recent negative Covid test. However, the immediate lifting of mandatory mask rules will “come as a surprise to some.”
Johnson is receiving some push back from some teaching and health unions. The general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, said ministers would “regret sending the wrong signal to the public for political expediency”.
Joint general secretary of the National Education Union Mary Bousted said, “While the trend amongst secondary aged children is down, it is however uncertain, due to the short time schools have been back since the Christmas holidays, that this trend will continue. Such uncertainty could lead to a pronounced risk of increased disruption with children and staff having to isolate.”
