The Left is mounting a new surge in the war on freedom. First, China unleashed a manageable virus that the Left declared a pandemic against which we were hopeless. More than a year later, the Left has unleashed a “variant” of the deadly manageable virus. Their compliant foot soldiers are donning masks and trembling yet again. It’s like old times.
Once again, as Americans, as Constitutionalist Conservative Republicans, we have a choice to make. Do we comply with Lockdown 2.0? Do we torture school children with mask wearing to signal only virtue (certainly not to signal common sense or scientific guidance)? Do we surrender?
Or, do we anchor ourselves in God given, inalienable rights. We’ve talked about this, taken it for granted all of our lives. Do we believe it? Do we truly believe we are granted life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and are we willing to fight for it? Philosophically, some certainly are willing.
But that’s not going to be enough if this Leftist surge persists. We will need to have the courage to raise our voices, to hold elected “leaders” to account, to use all legal remedies at our disposal, and to remove our children from schools that see them as little more than pawns.
On Monday afternoon the Moore County Board of Education convenes a regularly scheduled business meeting during which it is expected to vote on its mask policy for students and teachers. The same board voted in July to reject attempts by Gov. Roy Cooper to extend mask mandates when children return to school. But that was before the almighty Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued a new edict: masks for the vaccinated; masks for children; and masks for everybody else. Let the good times roll. Can we form an organization to control the most dangerous disease? The CDC.
The Moore school board’s Leftists (there are four) undoubtedly have taken a Kool-Aid bath in a taxpayer funded hot tub (pardon the imagery) and are ready to reverse course on masks. The new Pinehurst Elementary School lobby logo proclaims that it is in the “business of play”. But the school board is in the business of playing all of us.
The more sinister Monday agenda item is brought to us by chair (Queen) Elizabeth Carter, aka, Libby the Lib, and Stacey Caldwell, who is woke, shook and otherwise over the legal limit for Kool-Aid consumption. The board will be asked to consider, and I quote, “limitation on length of commentaries … by individual board members (the traumatizing trio elected in November 2020),” and, “enforcement of the net 60-minute restriction on time allotted for public comment.”
Mask the children. Mute the board members who are not welcome in the hot tub. Muzzle the public because all of the eye rolling is really bad for the optical health of the Carter Four.
Let us return to where we started. What will we do in the 61st minute?
