MEGHAN MCCAIN: What madness that children are being expelled from school for not having the Covid vaccination

In 2022, it’s hard to shock me.

But here we are.

In our nation’s capital, where auto theft is rampant and unvaccinated illegal immigrants are dropped off at bus stops a short walk from the Capitol, a child cannot receive a public school education without a COVID shot.

That’s crazy.

To be clear, I am not anti-vaccination.

My whole family and I have all been vaccinated against Covid. I have had the normal immunization schedule since birth, as has my two-year-old daughter, Liberty. I am thankful for vaccines that eliminate the need to worry about my child getting polio and becoming paralyzed or a variety of other diseases.

I am grateful to the doctors and scientists whose work protects public health. And I am especially grateful for Covid vaccines, which have done more to end the coronavirus pandemic than any other human intervention.

However, I am against political hypocrisy and illogical mandates and virtue signals from helpless politicians who have no business being in office.

The city of Washington DC, which I live minutes from, stands alone in the United States for requiring COVID vaccinations for all children under the age of 12 in public and charter schools.

Worse, if students aren’t vaccinated against COVID by January 2023, they won’t be given a distance learning opportunity.

Did you get that?

If the children are not vaccinated against Covid, they will be completely excluded from the education system, which their parents financed with their tax money.

According to the August 2022 report from the National Academy for State Health Policy, Washington DC is the only state or quasi-state government in the country to mandate vaccines this year.

A vaccination order is pending in California (surprise, surprise), but even that has been pushed back to July 2023 at the earliest.

In addition, twenty states have banned Covid vaccine mandates in schools. The UK has never had a Covid mandate in schools.

And listen, according to city data, 47% of black students ages 12-15 and 42% between ages 16-17 are not vaccinated against COVID-19, raising serious concerns that those mandated are doing so will have a disproportionate effect on children of color.

If the shoe were on the other foot and a Republican city leader instituted a policy that effectively signals black children, the outrage would be deafening. But in hyper-liberal Washington DC, it’s somehow justified.

At the same time, the Biden administration has asked all federal agencies to stop testing unvaccinated adult employees. Even public employees in DC don’t require vaccinations — this month a DC Superior Court judge said it was unlawful.

Bowser chooses to target children (mostly minority children) while allowing adults, who are at far greater risk of serious Covid infection and death, to do as they please.

How does this resemble common sense?

As is usual with so many progressive politicians, the focus is on punishing our children and the most vulnerable in society who cannot speak for themselves and lack the power that adults enjoy.

It’s disgusting and everyone should be angry.

Bowser needs a wake up call and she needs one now. She should be held accountable at national level.

What exactly should the children do? Move to another state? Not everyone has the financial means to just move to Florida, Muriel.

But wait – it gets worse.

While her focus is on vaccinating children, she also fails to address a crime wave that is spreading across the city.

The Metropolitan Police Department for the District of Columbia recorded 326 auto thefts between January 1 and August 30 of this year. This corresponds to an increase of 27% compared to the same period of the previous year. Firearms were involved in 73% of these carjacking incidents.

Just days ago, Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson was hospitalized after two teenagers shot him twice in the leg during an attempted car theft in Northwest DC.

This increase in crime should come first by the standards of any sane person and not the vaccination of children which has not been shown to stop Covid infection or transmission.

Perhaps that’s because it’s easier to target the children of taxpaying families than, say, deal with the flow of unvaccinated illegal immigrants into the city.

It’s easier to introduce insane and arbitrary Covid vaccination requirements for children than to grapple with the fact that a star soccer player can’t go outside in Washington DC at night without being robbed and shot twice in the leg.

Parents have a right to give their child an education and children have a right not to be treated differently because they have not yet reached adulthood. Citizens of the United States and our nation’s capital have a right to law and order and to feel safe when walking about with their families.

Why is it so difficult for progressive Democrats to prioritize real security rather than fetishize the Covid threat?

For some reason, fighting rampant and rising crime in blue cities is never met with the same vigour. Is that somehow politically incorrect?

I have absolutely no idea, but I do know there will be an award one way or another.

Pathetically, the burden seems to fall on our children – and they may pay with their future.
