NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A federal judge in Memphis has dealt the first blow against Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s executive order that allows parents to opt their children out of school mask requirements designed to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19.

Late Friday, U.S. District Judge Sheryl H. Lipman issued a temporary restraining order that blocks Lee’s order in Shelby County, but it could set the stage for other legal challenges across Tennessee.

The order stems from a lawsuit filed on behalf of two Shelby County students who have medical conditions that make them more vulnerable to the coronavirus. Their attorneys argued that, because Lee’s order allows students to enter schools unmasked and potentially infect other children, the plaintiffs were denied their rights to a public education.

You need to explain something to me s I am not a parent: If your kid has a weakened immune condition or something that makes them sensitive to the Chinka Virus, why would you actually want them to be among other children that potentially could pass them not only Covid but a slew of other contagious infirmities? I would have guessed that a mother would rather keep the your sickling sapling at home well away from potential infections rather than risk him die because you want to be politically ornery.

And why the effing judge decided it was a good idea to risk the life of a minor in that manner if the kid was actually weakened in his/her health? Hell, just a few days ago in Chicago a judge revoked a mother’s custody because she was not vaccinated under medical orders and supposedly presented an alleged risk to her healthy son.

This country has gone mad.

  1. It stems from the whole ‘It takes a village’ nonsense. The mentality has gone from “You are responsible for your own health/well-being/actions” to “Everyone around me should be forced to acquiesce to my whims”

  2. Two options:

    1) They don’t believe their kids will really die if exposed to covid and are using them as weapons against the eeeevil republicans

    2) They do believe it, and do it anyway

    Either way it’s child abuse

  3. Given all the other germs that go through schools, the WuFlu is the least thing. Influenza, various GI bugs, “the Crud” (also known as “every other upper respiratory virus known to man”), mono . . . There’s a reason teachers and pediatricians have really good immune systems.

  4. It makes me wonder if the gov’t will go so far as to confiscate children at birth and relegate parents to being breeders only. Impossible?

  5. Must be the same logic at work as the don’t bring anything to school that may have been in the same room as a peanut. If the immune compromised kids wear masks exactly how much safer are they if other kids wear masks? My guess is that this has zero to do with protection and everything to do with them not feeling different. To buck up their self esteem. Kinda like the movement to get rid of honors and AP classes.
