A parent in Virginia went absolutely ballistic at the Loudoun County School Board regarding local schools being closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“You should all be fired from your day jobs,” the pissed off father says during the public comment part of the meeting, “because if your employers knew that you were more inefficient than the DMV, you would be replaced in a heartbeat.”
The video was posted on Tuesday by Aliscia Andrews, a Marine Corps veteran and a former Republican candidate for Congress.
“As a parent, this pandemic has brought forth some incredible challenges,” Andrews wrote. “This dad has had enough, we all have. No real metrics to safely open the schools, while the [school board] continues to kick the can further down the road. Many parents feel just as he does.”
The video continues with the dad growing increasingly angry as he addresses the board.
“I literally just finished a conference call because I’m having to multitask to be here to address you guys. You’re a bunch of cowards, hiding behind our children as an excuse for keeping schools closed.
“You think you’re some sort of martyrs,” he continues, frustration obviously building, “because of the decisions you’re making when the statistics do not lie, that the vast majority of the population is not at risk from this virus.
Finally, he hit boiling point and unleashes fury: “The garbage workers who pick up my freakin’ trash risk their lives every day more than anyone in this school system!”
“Figure it out! Or get off the podium. Because you know what? There are people like me and a lot of other people out there who will gladly take your seat and figure it out. It’s not a high bar. Raise the freakin’ bar!”
