A video of a Loudon County, Virginia, man has gone viral after he addressed his local school board and the teachers they supposedly oversee. He delivers an impassioned, one-minute monologue, pointing out their anti-science position and cowardice in keeping schools closed.
It’s a must see video, and one that Biden administration flacks should be made to watch on repeat, after their latest capitulation to the teachers unions.

The man hits every note, from the fact that the school board is providing no real reason nor any metrics for keeping schools closed, to the fact that teachers are sitting around getting paid to refuse to do their jobs properly. He calls them cowards, notes they should be fired, and that the statistics simply do not back up their position.
That’s when things get really heated. The man then starts yelling that his garbage man can risk his life to pick up the trash and that the school board need to essentially grow up, stop hiding, and figure it out. Instead of responding with some humility, you hear the voice of the woman presiding to ask the sheriff’s deputy to escort the man out. That’s what these clowns think of the people who pay their salaries.
Teachers unions are a pariah. That’s not to say there aren’t lots of good teachers who are otherwise in the union simply because it’s required, but overall, these institutions (especially in Democrat-run areas) are corrosive and abuse the children they claim to be serving. Their selfishness and laziness are costing children’s lives over a virus that has no statistical ability to do so, nor does the science back up the idea that the teachers themselves are at risk while at school teaching.
The excuses given are ridiculous. They need billions to wipe things down before they can open? It’s extortion.
I’m so sick and tired of anti-science, safetyism bullshit. It’s what these school board officials are hiding behind to keep these schools closed.

If one good thing can come from this pandemic, I’d hope it’d be the marginalization of these unions and their puppet school boards. Local communities actually have the power to take back control. It’s far more doable than any attempt at the national level. The solution is to get people who actually care about kids elected and then play hardball with the unions.
Regardless, this man spoke for a lot of people in his short time at the podium.
