Apparently, the Pretorian guard media, as conservative talker Mark Levin calls them, have decided that it’s time to open public schools because Democratic politicians and unions who are keeping them closed (ostensibly because it’s ‘not safe during the COVID-19 pandemic) are beginning to hurt the party’s chances of clinging to power in the next election.
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, who is unabashedly left-wing, actually wrote what the majority of President Donald Trump’s supporters have believed for months: That Democratic anti-Trump zealotry is behind the perpetual closures, not “science.”
“Many Democrats seemed to be more suspicious of in-person schooling last summer when President Donald Trump called for it,” he wrote, adding, “We shouldn’t let ourselves be driven by ideology rather than science.”
Naturally, he goes on to hold up a Democratic governor, Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island, as an example of a state leader who opened schools where kids “are better off because she did,” though GOP governors and leaders in states like Florida, Missouri, the Dakotas, and more have had their schools open to in-person education for months, too — and without any big COVID problems.
But millions of other kids remain chained to Zoom and laptops because the left-wing teacher’s unions in those districts refuse to allow in-person learning because they’re holding out for billions in taxpayer loot via the next COVID relief bill.
That selfish politicization, however, is hurting our kids, Kristof — who should have written his column last summer — noted.
