In a Friday press conference, the CDC admitted what many Americans already knew; the CDC is influenced by radical left wing politics, in this case teachers’ unions.

As the CDC director Rochelle Walensky noted in her speech, “CDC’S OPERATIONAL STRATEGY IS GROUNDED IN SCIENCE…”

About five minutes into her speech calling for all school-aged kids to wear masks and providing penalties and outcomes for kids who defy mask orders, Walensky admitted that teachers and parents helped shape that science through their opinions, which are not science.

Science vs opinion

In that February 12th conference, the CDC released its new guidelines for returning to school. The entity is very concerned about masks, as evidenced by its previous policy decisions this year requiring masks for kids over the age of two. The CDC’s

“CDC, SPECIFICALLY, RECOMMENDS FIVE KEY, LAYERED-MITIGATION STRATEGIES.

UNIVERSAL AND CORRECT USE OF:

  • MASKS
  • PHYSICAL DISTANCING
  • HANDWASHING AND RESPIRATORY ETIQUETTE
  • CLEANING AND MAINTAINING HEALTHY FACILITIES
  • AND DIAGNOSTIC AND RAPID AND EFFICIENT-CONTACT TRACING, IN COMBINATION WITH ISOLATION AND QUARANTINE, AND IN COLLABORATION WITH THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

WHILE EACH OF THESE, FIVE STRATEGIES IS IMPORTANT TO PREVENT AND REDUCE THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, AND TO SUPPORT SAFE, SCHOOL REOPENING, CDC RECOMMENDS PRIORITIZING THE FIRST TWO.

UNIVERSAL AND CORRECT USE OF MASKS, THAT SHOULD BE REQUIRED FOR ALL STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND STAFF. AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING OF AT LEAST 6 FEET BETWEEN PEOPLE WITH COHORTING OR PODDING OF STUDENTS TO MINIMIZE EXPOSURE ACROSS THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT.”


When the CDC reached out to educators and parents to help shape science, apparently those educators and parents believed, through science, that masks are necessary for students to not catch viruses. Of course, because this is 2021, COVID-19 and back to school policies, as shaped by the CDC, must include some reference to racism…

“ESPECIALLY, THOSE FROM LOW-RESOURCED, RACIAL AND ETHNIC-MINORITY COMMUNITIES, AND CHILDRENS WITH DISABILITIES.I RECOGNIZE THAT THE DECISION, ON WHEN AND HOW TO BEGIN IN-PERSON LEARNING IS ONE THAT MUST BE BASED ON A THOROUGH REVIEW OF WHAT THE SCIENCE TELLS US WORKS AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE LIVED EXPERIENCES, CHALLENGES, AND PERSPECTIVES, OF TEACHERS AND SCHOOL STAFF, PARENTS, AND STUDENTS. WE HAVE CONDUCTED AN IN-DEPTH REVIEW OF THE AVAILABLE SCIENCE AND EVIDENCE BASE TO GUIDE OUR RECOMMENDATIONS, AND WE HAVE ALSO ENGAGED WITH MANY EDUCATION AND PUBLIC-HEALTH PARTNERS, TO HEAR FIRSTHAND FROM PARENTS AND TEACHERS, DIRECTLY, ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCES AND CONCERNS.”


And why are masks so crucial to the unions, educators, and CDC? The CDC website as well as dozens of peer reviewed studies prove that masks don’t work and may make people sick, but masks are still peddled by the agency like hot cakes. For many, masks are simply a sign of submission with no real science to back the theory that face coverings are helpful or even healthy. Since the CDC has now admitted that it’s science is influenced by non-scientists affiliated with radical social justice groups, who can trust any recommendations by the CDC?

In less than a year, the CDC, once a “science-based organization,” like most radical entities, has forewent science and is now guided by social justice (and teachers’ unions), in order to politicize COVID-19.
