Texas Republican gubernatorial candidate Allen West said that he removed the mask of a person who confronted him at Dallas-Fort Worth airport for not wearing a mask in public.
West said in a statement that he was "berated" at the DFW airport on Wednesday by a man who he called "a left-wing partisan," who "cursed and insulted" him for not wearing a mask.
He then responded by "flicking the individual's mask off."

I’m surprised he wasn’t arrested for assault on the kook.
... by placing his fist firmly in the fellow’s nose...
We need to go back to punching people in the face and neck again.
A lot of this s*** would clear right up.
The CDC has created a legal definition for assault.
It is now, anywhere within 3 feet of your personal space.
(6 feet social distancing)
If anyone comes within that distance, you are legally protected too ^remove^ said person from you personal space, using any efforts necessary to protect yourself.
If that means a broken nose, well, so be it.
It’s now codified as “SCIENCE”.
If he was able to do that, then the person was within 6’ of him and in violation of the social distancing rules. If it’s good enough for the leftists ...
Gotta love that man!
It’s battery, once you touch them.
The number of people that will vote for Alan West just went up.
Yes. The Left is all about, "If I'm miserable, you have to be also."
Nope we don't have to play that game.
Our faux president spits in people’s faces, and threatens them with violence all the time, and manhandled females, and shushes women (a huge no no according to the left who went absolutely mental when a republican “shushed” a female reporter who was being belligerent), on and on it goes, and the media freak out over west “flicking” a mask?
West showed restraint.
I would have decked the guy.
Thanks MR. WEST.
West was ignoring the law and the other guy chose to be a jerk about it. Hard to see who has the high ground in this one.
He backed his men in Iraq...I will back him politically.
When he said after being forced to retire if he would do anything differently regarding the stupid “use of force” accusations, Col. West said “”If it’s about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can.”
I believed him.
