Democrats are pushing citizens to the brink.
Politicians in deep-blue areas have no fear of facing an electoral backlash.
And one Democrat mayor just infuriated parents with an insane policy.
The COVID regime still has not gone away
Some petty tyrants around the country are demanding that people get vaccinated and boosted for the umpteenth time.
And Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser refuses to let kids return to school if they are not vaccinated.
On top of that, there will not be a distance learning alternative.
The Daily Signal reported that “the District of Columbia does not appear to have a contingency plan for unvaccinated students, who are banned from attending schools in person this fall after the first 20 days, according to comments made by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser Thursday. During a press conference, Bowser, a Democrat, admitted there are no alternative options, including virtual learning, for students who cannot attend school due to the District’s vaccine mandate, meaning unvaccinated children will effectively be left without an education.”
According to city data, over 40% of black students between 12-17 are unvaccinated, meaning a significant portion of the District’s black population will not be allowed in school.
Neo-Marxist academic Ibram X. Kendi and other leftist proponents of Critical Race Theory (CRT) have argued that any law or policy that has a disparate impact is inherently racist.
By CRT logic, Bowser’s vaccine mandate is racist on its face.
Of course, Kendi and other leftists would never make that argument because they don’t want to cross the establishment or Big Pharma.
They know their donations and national media platforms would quickly dry up.
When Kendi was asked that question directly last fall, he folded.

Now, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education for D.C. has made the announcement that “all students must have up-to-date immunization certification on file with the school within the first 20 school days or they will not be allowed to attend school or school activities until the immunization certification is secured by the school…If the student does not come into compliance within a 20-school day period, the school must remove the student from school until the immunization certification is secured by the school.”
No accommodations for un-jabbed kids
Bowser was pressed on distance learning for those who don’t get vaccinated, and she said, “We’re not offering remote learning for children, and families will need to comply with what is necessary to come to school.”
It’s unclear if parents could be considered truant for refusing to vaccinate their children.
If so, that would mean the government could literally arrest parents for not giving their kids the jab.
The only silver lining of disastrous policies like these is that homeschooling and school choice are on the rise.
That means the teachers’ unions’ stranglehold on education has been weakened ever so slightly by the Democrats’ absurd vaccine policies.
