U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., is demanding that Frontier Airlines officials explain why a gate agent banned an air marshal from wearing an American flag-themed mask on a flight.
The agent at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta claimed other passengers would find his mask "offensive," according to Collins.
"This infringement of a law enforcement officer's right to free speech was clearly a decision made by one of your gate agents based on their own politics," he wrote. "This is made even more clear by the fact that many passengers allowed to board the flight in this incident were permitted to wear political face masks, including many wearing Black Lives Matter masks."

Unreal. Frontier Airlines needs to pay dearly for this.
I'd challenge the gate agent to show the written policy regarding "might offend".
Tell him the whole mask issue offends me and that there are no defined standards for acceptable masks.
WOW! What an Idea just popped into my head. It may be out there, but a face mask with “1984” would be very apropos due to all the news we are exposed to.
That’s right. You can give a nod to the Marxists and violence of Black Lives Matter, but can’t give a nod to America by showing the American flag. That’s where we are at.
I just called and told them how I feel...
Go to American AF. they have tons of masks with statements.
Flying commercial air has been BS since 911.
Yep, take them to court.
Are they the same ones at Walmart, which have slogans welcoming illegal aliens?
This would be a good one:
I would get on the plane and then once airborn, switch back to American Flag mask. Then if they tried to make an issue, they would have to land the plane and give me my day in court.
And it would end up costing the airline millions.
Hope someone tweets this story to Trump’s Twitter account.
Yup. That’s why whenever I travel, I simply dial up NET JETS and charter me a flight. Then again, I don’t travel any more so............................... :-)
Seems like an Air Marshall would want to be a little bit more inconspicuous. Maybe he should have worn the BLM mask...
Usually there is more to the story
Remember back when corporations were “conservative?” Just another pathway on the long march through the institutions.
But your wit would be lost on 99% of those airheads and idiots with their "BLM" logos.
