Joe Biden desperately tried to change the subject from his humiliation in Afghanistan.
To that end, Biden decided to attack Republican governors more forcefully than the Taliban.
And Joe Biden picked this fight with Ron DeSantis that will end up at the Supreme Court.
After days of hiding and barely addressing his decision to abandon thousands of Americans behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, Joe Biden’s handlers trotted the president out for a brief speech to attack the real enemy – Republican governors like Ron DeSantis that banned mandatory mask requirements in schools and returned that decision to parents.
In his speech, Biden never mentioned Afghanistan or reassured trapped Americans that their government engaged in every effort to save their lives.
Instead, Biden trained his fire on Ron DeSantis who rejected mandatory mask wearing.
This is not unusual or some quack theory.
Schools in Europe operated the last year without forcing children to wear masks.
Biden announced that the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division would use its authority to pressure schools to force children to wear masks for eight hours a day.
“Unfortunately, as you’ve seen throughout this pandemic, some politicians are trying to turn public safety measures — that is, children wearing masks in school — into political disputes for their own political gain,” Biden mumbled.
Secretary Cardona ranted he was “appalled that there are adults who are blind to their blindness, that there are people who are putting policies in place that are putting students and staff at risk.
“At the end of the day,” Cardona continued, “we shouldn’t be having this conversation. What we’re dealing with now is negligence.”
Cardona and the Biden administration claim that banning mask mandates in schools is racist.
The New York Times reports that “Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, students are entitled to a free, appropriate public education, known as FAPE, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on race, color and national origin.”
Without citing any evidence, Cardona recounted a likely false claim about parents complaining schools shut down because of a lack of mask mandates.
“I’ve heard those parents, saying ‘Miguel, because of these policies, my child cannot access their school, I would be putting them in harm’s way,’” Dr. Cardona said. “And to me, that goes against a free appropriate public education. That goes against of the fundamental beliefs of educators across the country to protect their students and provide a well-rounded education.”
Ron DeSantis’ order did not ban masks in schools.
Parents are free to send their children to school wearing masks and petrified teachers unwilling to take the coronavirus vaccine can wear masks all day, every day.
It’s likely Ron DeSantis – and other Republican governors- will fight this biomedical security state power grab all the way to the Supreme Court, which is where the issue will ultimately be decided.
