As the United States commemorates another anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Robert O’Neill, the former Navy SEAL believed to have shot Osama bin Laden, is making news again when a tweet of his went viral due to an event that occurred in 2020 for which Delta Air banned him from using the airline.
As reported by The Scoop, the day after the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, O’Neill, the former member of the elite U.S. Navy SEAL team, wrote on Twitter:
“20 years after 9/11. The Taliban controls Afghanistan. The guy who killed bin Laden is on a no-fly list.”
That post quickly went viral, reaching more than 53 thousand likes and more than 13 thousand retweets.
The ban O’Neill referred to was due to a publication he uploaded to the networks in August 2020 of a selfie of himself on a Delta Air flight, where he was seen without a mask, with the caption: “I am not a faggot.”
The former SEAL corroborated this fact in a tweet in which he wrote: “I just got banned from
@Delta for posting a picture. Wow..”
The airline company also confirmed the ban to the Daily Wire, stating that, “Part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta is the requirement to acknowledge our updated travel policies, which includes wearing a mask.”
Robert O’Neill is highly critical, not only of the mask mandates but has been active on the networks accusing China as the culprit for all the restrictions enforced because of the coronavirus.
According to Daily Wire, the former Navy SEAL wrote in a now-deleted tweet, “China told you to wear a mask. Look down… you’re wearing a mask. I’m not.”
“Make no mistake.. this ‘pandemic’ was sent to you by China,” he added. “Do you remember the complete, incompetent morons buying all of the toilet paper? They’re the ones telling you to wear masks now.”
“I’m not being rude… I’m just telling you facts,,” he continued.
Regarding the mask mandate, he wrote to his followers that he knows more about biological warfare than they do. “We were trained. These dumb ass masks do nothing. Nothing,” and noted that they “does more harm than good..”
Because of his statements, O’Neill has earned criticism from those who adhere to the mandates set forth by Covid (CCP Virus). Still, there were also people who agreed with his thoughts, and some even highlighted the former Navy SEAL’s sacrifices in taking down major terrorists after the 9/11 attacks.
After facing backlash online, he wrote: “I’m not afraid of the mob. Come get some.” And in another series of tweets, he said, “There is a time to act. Who’s with me?” and continued, “I shook thousands of hands and gave thousands of hugs this week. I flew on some planes. I’ll be alive next week.”
