Underly Want to take the “politics” out of decision to mandate masks on children

Lefties really hate it when people oppose what they are doing. They like to label any opposition as “politics” and slander the opponents as just engaging in “politics.” Well “politics” is the process by which we publicly debate what we want our government institutions to do. There is a sizable group of stakeholders who do not want to abuse our kids by forcing them to wear masks. They have to engage in politics to make their voices heard by our government schools. When Underly says that she wants to “take the politics” out of the mask debate, what she is really saying is that she wants to silence any opposition. She want you to shut up and do what you’re told.

Underly also had a message for local districts caught in the middle between parents pushing for masks and full COVID-19 mitigation efforts and parents demanding their children not wear masks at schools.


“My message to schools is hang in there. The issue itself has just become way too political. We need to remove politics from it. When we take politics out of it, we take the emotion out of it as well,” she said. “We have to take emotion out of some of these mitigation measures and follow the science and do what we need to do to protects kids and staff.”

    Wow, I wonder if liberals understand the phrase ‘The pot calling the kettle black’? I really don’t think they do because the word black is used, so it must be rooted in racism.
    And that is the first time I have seen “Follow the science” in a while. I guess they just needed a little time for the phrase to re-gain its potency among the liberal faithful.

    I don’t even know why it’s an issue.
    If you want to wear a masks, then wear one.
    And if you don’t, then don’t.
    The kids who wear the masks will be protected, unless masks don’t work.

    IF the mask stops the virus, then only those who are afraid of the virus should wear a mask.

    But fear-freaks cannot process simple logic.

    There’s a rocky road ahead for the government education industry. Taking such an overtly condescending attitude toward concerned parents is only going to cause other less than concerned parents to wonder what all the squawk is about.

    But if you protest a mask or vaccine mandates now make you a domestic terrorist, according to the DOJ.
    More liberal Nazism.
