The following article, CDC Pushing Masks for Kids to Satisfy Unions, NOT Science, was first published on Flag And Cross.
The CDC has been flip flopping all over the place on masking kids over COVID, but now we have proof that the renewed masking recommendation was made to satisfy the radical, anti-education teachers unions, not because of “science.”
On Tuesday, the CDC once again recommended that all kids should wear masks for the upcoming school year.
“CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status. Children should return to full-time in-person learning in the fall with layered prevention strategies in place,” the CDC’s latest guidance states.
One thing the CDC neglected to do, though, was to offer any scientific proof that kids need to be masked to prevent coronavirus infection and spread.
In fact, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky admitted that there isn’t any proof that the supposed Delta Variant is a danger to kids.

And only a month ago, the CDC was arguing that kid did not need to wear masks.

So, only two weeks passes during which nothing major occurs and “science” goes from no masks and the Delta variant is harmless for kids to OMG kids must all mask up for eternity!
Well, now we know why the mask mandate is coming back for kids. The teachers unions want masking.
One of the nation’s largest teacher’s union will continue to push for face masks to be worn in schools despite new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that says it is now safe for fully vaccinated people to take their masks off in most indoor settings.
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT), which represents 1.7 million members across the country, told Newsweek that the labor union is awaiting COVID-19 vaccine authorization for kids under age 12 before mask requirements are lifted in schools.
“It’s great news that the vaccines are now so effective that vaccinated folks can take their masks off,” AFT President Randi Weingarten wrote to Newsweek on Friday. “The specifics on how you make that happen will take a minute to figure out—but we are encouraged by these guidelines and can’t lose sight of the bigger picture: this is a huge incentive for more and more people to get vaccines and push our country towards herd immunity.”
Masks-wearing is not science. It is kabuki medicine.
