The #NoFlyList memes are in and they’re almost as satisfying as the videos

Videos of what appear to be MAGA militia members being carted off airplanes and/or arrested in airports around the country have been going absolutely viral on social media all weekend.

While it’s not clear who the people are in these videos or whether they have any connection the last week’s insurrection, it seems the internet can’t get enough.

According to Snopes, “while videos show people who were removed from flights for being unruly or refusing to wear a mask, these people were not added to the FBI’s terrorist no-fly list.”

Still, the videos have received millions and millions of views. Now, memers are getting in on the action. They’ve already begun preserving this unique time in American history for posterity’s sake.

So without any further ado…

UPDATE: A previous version of this story suggested the travelers being arrested were participants in the attack on the U.S. Capitol. Snopes has since pointed out that some of these videos have been miscaptioned and are actually anti-maskers being removed from planes. We regret any misunderstandings, but the videos are too good not to enjoy still.
