Parents have had enough. They want FREEDOM for their children. A new movement against mask mandates and other COVID requirements for children is growing in America. The Conway Daily Sun reports on a school board meeting that attracted scores of parents unhappy about mask mandates for their kids.
In the longest public comment portion of a Conway School Board meeting in years, local citizens aired concerns Monday night about children possibly having to wear cloth masks for a second consecutive school year due to COVID-19. They voiced fears of long-term masking and asked the board to make masks optional when school begins on Sept. 2.
A parent and child gave a demonstration of CO2 levels during mask-wearing, while Center Conway resident Steven Steiner displayed his middle finger in response to possible mandatory mask-wearing during the first of two public comment sections, with the first one lasting 45 minutes.
About 32 locals, from Madison to Bartlett, attended the meeting held in the Professional Development Center within the SAU 9 Office, which was also attended by five of seven school board members and school administrators.
“We’re not anti-(vaxxers), we’re not anti-maskers, we’re not anti-anything,” Kevin Clifford of Madison told them. “In fact, we’re pro-choice for everybody and freedom for everybody.
“I was prepared to come here today with a multitude of studies and evidence regarding masks. But after the pandemic response committee meeting last Thursday night, I decided this would be a fruitless endeavor,” he said. (See related story.)
Instead, Clifford and his son, Danya, offered a mask demonstration.
“(There is a study that) talks about whether or not these masks are harmful to our children,” Mr. Clifford said. “And one of the questions is whether or not carbon dioxide levels increase, and whether the oxygen levels decrease and there seems to be a school of thought amongst many physicians, which are being censored, that this is the case.”
Danya, who will be a freshman at Kennett High, donned a standard light blue mask.
Clifford held up a device which he said was a carbon dioxide meter. “It reads ambient carbon dioxide, relative humidity and also the temperature. Right now, we’re showing about 690 parts per million of carbon dioxide in this room, which is probably pretty normal considering the number of people in here.”
But when he held it under his son’s mask, Danya’s reading reached 4,000 parts per million.
“You think this is normal?” Clifford said. “This isn’t normal. You’re asphyxiating our children with a polypropylene mask. How long do you want this to go on?”
“Until he dies,” Dr. Eugene Long of Eaton answered from the audience. “You’re asphyxiating the student. It’s child cruelty.”
Action Line: If your elected officials don’t care about your opinions, and trample your freedom, it’s time to look for a better America.
