Parents in Virginia win case to force mask mandates on other children

Updated: May 8, 2022

“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?
