COVID-19 mandates are political theater, and nothing could be more precise. As soon as the Democrats obtained control of the White House and Congress, they urged local elected officials to behave without regard for their constituents to boost the Democratic Party. Masks, particularly on children, should be considered optional. There is no evidence that children are at significant risk of COVID-19, and it is up to parents to decide whether or not to have their children wear a mask. On this matter, there should be no middle ground.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, parents have been destroying school boards, and it hasn’t gotten any better recently. There’s no reason for mandates to stay in effect because the COVID-19 Omicron variant isn’t nearly as severe as the other variants.
Merianne Jensen spoke to the Prince William County School Board and began her statements very calmly and precisely. Jensen explained that “we want the same thing: to get through COVID without harm.”
That’s a reasonable request and a reasonable attitude against any virus, including the common cold. Parents want their children to be safe from all dangers, including mental illness.
Jensen explained the correlations between masks and severe illness and how many schools across the country have been open since the beginning of COVID-19 without masks.
Jensen said, “There were not child coffins lined up as some educators in this country suggested would be the case. Things have been going pretty much as normal. Kids are getting sick despite wearing masks. We are forcing healthy children home for ‘exposure’ despite wearing masks.”
Most of society has become immune to COVID-19 exposure, and employers have allowed individuals who have been exposed to stay on the job unless symptoms appear.
That brought Jensen to her next point, “And we are segregating children by vaccination status and religious exemption status despite the wearing of masks.”
There’s a federal database being created to track the religious activities of American citizens. That’s a frightening endeavor for the US government to take on. Instead of helping, the government is actively hurting people across this country. Welcome to the “new normal.”
Jensen asked. “If masks work, why don’t they work?”
Jensen then quoted several studies, including the CDC numbers, that show that 331 children have died from COVID-19 since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. At one point in 2021, more children were shot in Chicago than have been killed from COVID-19 since the virus’s origin.
What are we doing to our children?
Jensen finally said, “You are on the losing side of history. And it’s time to make that right for the children now.”
It’s not too late to turn back. The government cannot continue to act as they have. The time for stepping up and pushing against these policies is now, if it’s going to be done at all. The mandates have to come to an end for the good of everyone.
