“Parents in Virginia win right to mask classmates of their vulnerable children.”
If that headline doesn't piss you off, you are part of the problem. Parents in Virginia win a legal right to require masks for OTHER children? Because their child is vulnerable. I dare you to read the article and not get pissed off. Dare you.
So, I am guessing that COVID-19 came around and that was the only virus your child was susceptible to? Directly from the article.
“The students have health conditions-which include cystic fibrosis, asthma, Down Syndrome, lung conditions and weakened immune systems.”
Are you really going to sit here and tell me that these students didn’t have these conditions 2,3 or 4 years ago? Where was your concern for their health before COVID-19 became so politicized? Why weren't masks an issue your child's entire life? What about the flu? Or the common cold? Were they vulnerable to those as well? This has nothing to do with the safety of said children. This has to do with parents who refuse to let go.
“Policies making masks optional violated the rights of other students.” As quoted from the article. As a staunch Constitutionalist myself, I would love to hear the argument on which Constitutional right was violated because another child was not wearing a mask around yours. Because if you feel the need to quote “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” I have some news for you, that is the Declaration of Independence.
Wait till you find out that the Declaration of Independence is not the Supreme Law of the Land as Article 6 of the United States Constitution outlines. It is simply a list of grievances against King George declaring the colonies free and independent States. The Constitution was ratified in 1789, you may want to read it.
As quoted in the Article, “Would remove local decision-making power from local school divisions and place it into the hands of the State.” Congratulations on your first lesson regarding the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited to it by the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.” The Constitution itself grants the State more power than the local or Federal Government. Ever heard of enumeration? It may be a good time to get a copy of the Constitution and actually read it.
Instead of worrying about the Constitutionality of jurisprudence. Let’s actually look at some of the data regarding COVID-19 and see what the fuss is really about. Because we already know that most people can't be troubled to put down mainstream media articles enough to read the Constitution. But they also can't trouble themselves to take the 10 minutes it takes to look up the correlating data regarding this topic. So, what is the data?
The United States Population was 331.45 million as reported in 2020. According to the CDC they estimate that roughly 79,696,994 Americans contracted COVID-19. Of those 79+ million, 972,550 people have died from the virus since it was first discovered in Washington State back in January of 2020. So, what does this mean?
Well, you can do the math yourself.
Only 24.044% of the entire U.S population contracts COVID-19. And of those that contract the virus. Only 0.29% of the United States population have died from it. That’s if we consider the reporting to be accurate. Only 1.22% of those who contract COVID-19, die from it.
75% of the United States Population will never even contract COVID-19. And 99.97% of the population will never have to worry about dying from it. These are not numbers that I made up. They are directly from the CDC website.
But we are talking about children, right? Let’s go with 0–17-year old's and see what that data reflects.
The Census Bureau estimates that roughly 74 million children under the age of 18 live in the United States. According to CDC data, only 933 children between the ages of 0-17 have died from COVID-19. That would mean that of the reported 972 thousand deaths in the United States, only 0.0095% of deaths in the United States are between the ages of 0-17. School age children. That means 99.99% of children in the United States have absolutely nothing to worry about.
But let's take it a step further. Rochelle Walensky herself stated in an interview that 75% of all COVID related deaths in the United States were amongst people who had at least 4 comorbidities. Don’t take my word for it. You can listen to it yourself here.

So, let's take that into account as well. 75% of the 933 deaths amongst school age children would put the total around 699 children across the United States. Which means only 234 children had less than 4 comorbidities or some form of preexisting medical condition. That would mean that only 0.024% of children who died, did not have at least 4 comorbidities. That’s not counting the 6% that the CDC directly stated were accurate death numbers amongst American citizens who died directly from COVID related illnesses. That is right. 94% of deaths in the United States were attributed to other preexisting health conditions. According to this data. 99.97% of children in the United States who contract COVID, recover from it.
The United States, however, is not the topic of discussion. The state of Virginia is. And I also pulled those numbers as well.
The population of Virginia is roughly 8.52 million according to their reporting.
Of all the reported COVID-19 cases in Virginia. 289,968 are children under the age of 18. Which would mean that 3.4% of all the reported cases in Virginia are school aged children. Of the 289 thousand reported cases amongst children in the State of Virginia, they only report 14 deaths related to Covid 19. That would mean that only .0048% of the reported deaths in the State of Virginia are amongst children under the age of 18. Do we really need to account for the 75% of people that Rochelle Walensky states have 4 comorbidities? That would mean that 99.99% of children in the State of Virginia who contract COVID-19, recover from it. We can also take this a step further and account for the 6% figure that the CDC has quoted as being the actual number of COVID related deaths in the United States.
More children in the United States have died from the pneumonia than they have COVID-19. 1,460 to be exact. As compared to the 933.
So, I have some logical questions to ask. At what point do we start to stand up for and defend our children? Who do these people think they are? If your child is that vulnerable to health conditions, why have you said absolutely nothing regarding mask mandates pre-Covid? Now their health suddenly matters in a public space? When they are 99% likely to recover from COVID-19 in the first place. Where was this outrage under the Swine Flu? Common cold? Maybe take measures to protect your child more. No one is telling you that your child cannot wear a mask. It is OPTIONAL!
This has nothing to do with the individual health of a few children. This has everything to do with conditioning. And the parents’ inability to let go. It’s political theatrics. People want to feel like they belong to something. Even when that advocacy is seriously misguided and highly uneducated.
This isn’t some conspiracy theory. The data is readily available. And takes less than 10 minutes to analyze.
You can cross check my references all day.
This is about controlling our most vulnerable. Our children! Conditioning them to separate the relationships that they have with their fellow classmates and undermine the authority parents have over raising their children. As a father myself, I am fed up with our children being used as bargaining chips in the false dichotomy of political theatrics.
You can keep pushing these buttons all you want. But sooner or later it isn't going to be so peaceful.
