Democrats are targeting children with outrageous restrictions.
And they hate anyone who stands in their way.
Ron DeSantis took a stand that made Jen Psaki go into a meltdown.
Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis isn’t going to back down on his decision not to force masks on school children in the upcoming year.
“There shouldn’t be any coercive mandates on our schools,” DeSantis noted on Thursday, adding, “We certainly will not have any mandates on students and on parents in the upcoming school year.”
However, DeSantis cautioned that, “There’s been talk about potentially people advocating at the federal level imposing compulsory masks on kids, we’re not doing that in Florida, okay? We need our kids to breathe; we need our kids to be able to be kids.”
“We need our kids to able to breathe.” DeSantis continued. “It’s terribly uncomfortable for them to do it — not very much science behind it. There’s some schools we had, didn’t do masks, others did, the outcomes were not meaningfully different, and so I think it’s really important that — parents obviously can equip their kid to go to school however they want, but there shouldn’t be any coercive mandates on our schools, and so we want to make sure that as of right now, all the school districts are going in that direction.”
“But there is going to be, it looks like, a campaign from Washington to try to change that,” he warned, “and I’ve talked to [Florida House Speaker] Chris Sprowls; if we need to bring them back in to be able to do something from the legislative perspective, he’s all in to be able to do it and I know people will do it.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about DeSantis’ words, Psaki said that “as a parent,” DeSantis’ position was “greatly concerning” to her, adding, “That puts kids at risk.”
ABC News’ Karen Travers, asked Psaki a leading question, saying, “Florida Governor DeSantis was talking about mask mandates for kids earlier this morning. And he said, ‘We’re not doing that in Florida. We need our kids to breathe. We need our kids to be able to be kids.’ He said, ‘It’s terribly uncomfortable for them to do it.’ That obviously goes against the CDC guidance for kids under 12 who aren’t vaccinated and what the president said last night. Is that putting kids in Florida at risk?”
CDC admits that for young children the coronavirus is less deadly than the flu.
The CDC website states “For young children, especially children younger than 5 years old, the risk of serious complications is higher for flu compared with COVID-19.” It also adds “For adolescents, the risk of serious COVID-19 illness is less than in children younger than 5.”
