Video of a parent furious over the destructive decision not to open his child’s school is going viral as the man spoke for millions of parents as school boards everywhere ignore science and bow to the wishes of anti-American teachers unions.
The video of the irate parent speaking to a Virginia school board was posted to Twitter by Virginia Republican Aliscia Andrews.
“As a parent, this pandemic has brought forth some incredible challenges. This dad has had enough, we all have. No real metrics to safely open the schools, while the [school board] continues to kick the can further down the road. Many parents feel just as he does. #LCPS #openschools[.]” Andrews wrote.
In the video, a masked father of a school child can be seen saying, “You should all be fired from your day jobs, because if your employers knew that you were more inefficient than the DMV, you would be replaced in a heartbeat. I literally just finished a conference call because I’m having to multitask to be here to address you guys. You’re a bunch of cowards hiding behind our children as an excuse for keeping schools closed. You think you’re some sort of martyrs because of the decisions you’re making when the statistics do not lie that the vast majority of the population is not at risk from this virus.”

He went on, saying, “The garbage workers who pick up my freaking trash risk their lives every day more than anyone in this school system! Figure it out! Or get off the podium!” he screamed. “Because you know what? There are people like me and a line of other people out there who will gladly take your seat and figure it out! It’s not a high bar! Raise the freaking bar!”
As the man leaves the room, he can be heard saying, “I’ll be back next time. And the next time — till you open the freaking schools!”
The fact is, the schools are not following the science. All the science shows that children neither contract COVID art school, nor do they spread it there.
There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to keep the schools closed. COVID is no threat at all.
But teachers unions everywhere are refusing to allow the schools to reopen. And yet, unlike regular Americans, these fatcat teachers are still getting paid off the largesse of our tax dollars, even though they refuse to work.
Teachers can stay home all they want, granted. But they shouldn’t continue to be paid.
