It’s obvious beyond any reasonable doubt at this point that the cultural revolutionaries in the Democratic Party are staging a full-court press to destroy the country in their unhinged quest to take down President Donald Trump at any cost.
Using the coronavirus pandemic to its fullest in terms of gaining political advantage, it has largely been Democrats who have continually pushed for shutdowns of most but not all businesses, causing economic pain to tens of millions of Americans.
Now, as summer progresses and fall school schedules begin to loom larger on the horizon, Marxist Democrats are pushing to have schools canceled for another year in lieu of ‘virtual’ education that is inadequate, ultimately harmful, and detrimental to a child’s long-term education and mental health.
Thankfully, we have a president with hutzpah and an administration increasingly staffed by fellow America-firsters who are fighting hard against the Left-wing revolutionaries.
The Epoch Times reports:
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos vowed to have schools re-opened nationwide for in-person classes in the fall, saying that it can be done in a safe manner amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” she said that it will be “a matter of how” and “not a matter of if.”
Elaborating further, DeVos said the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) never recommended that schools be shuttered “in the first place,” although some CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus hotspots need special consideration.
"Parents are expecting that this fall their kids are going to have a full-time experience with their learning, and we need to follow through on that promise," she told host Chris Wallace.
"Where there are hot spots in the future, in the fall, of course, that has to be dealt with differently,” she added – knowing full-well that local and state governments will be in a much better position to make those decisions.
In a tweet on Saturday, President Donald Trump pushed for reopening of schools as well, citing data indicating that the “virtual learning” environment established towards the end of last school year, as the coronavirus pandemic was rising.
"Now that we have witnessed it on a large scale basis, and firsthand, Virtual Learning has proven to be TERRIBLE compared to In School, or On Campus, Learning. Not even close! Schools must be open in the Fall. If not open, why would the Federal Government give Funding? It won’t!!!" he wrote.
His campaign also tweeted a clip of the country’s top immunologist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, also talking up the importance of reopening schools.
"It is very important to get children back to school for the unintended negative consequences that occur when we keep them out of school," he said.
He did add that the country needed to “flatten the curve” of the virus first, but the fact is – if it’s ‘follow the science’ time, as the Left always claims – we’ve known for months that school-aged children and teens are not at risk of catching or becoming seriously ill from COVID-19.
The Democrat Left is continuing to use ‘coronavirus’ as an excuse to destroy our country. That much is evident.
