Monday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, racist propagandist Joy Reid made the ugly, patently false claim that Republicans in the southern states where COVID-19 cases are surging have stopped “caring whether or not kids get sick” because they oppose vaccine and mask mandates.
Reid began by posing the logic-challenged questions, “When did we stop caring whether or not kids get sick? Why are their needs secondary to the needs of anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers?”
She continued, “Thousands of kids under age 12 are heading back to school unvaccinated because the food and drug administration has not approved emergency use authorization for their age group. Sadly we’re now seeing an uptick in COVID pediatric cases as the Delta variant continues to spread. According to the CDC, at least 81 children died of COVID in the U.S. between March and July of this year. Normally kids dying would be a five-alarm fire in America or anywhere around the world.”
She concluded, “I wish both sides of this debate cared equally about kids, but that is unfortunately not the case.”
She’s right, but not the way she intends. The party that has shown complete disregard for the rights and safety of children is the one that isolated children from each other for over a year via school closings and maskings, arresting their education, and directly causing spikes in teen suicides, childhood depression, and hysterical fear about the manufactured pandemic — the Democrat Party.
Reid and her leftist compatriots don’t ever care about children unless they can be weaponized against political opponents.
