The hysteria over COVID-19 has spiraled out of control.
Pro-lockdown politicians are getting away with terrifying unconstitutional orders.
And now government school officials are encouraging kids to do this unbelievable act.
In the Soviet Union, children were encouraged to rat on their parents if they expressed any anti-state views.
That Stalinist tactic has shockingly made its way to the United States with the latest COVID-19 measure.
Vermont Governor Phil Scott and government school officials asked students if they were a part of multi-family gatherings during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Unfortunately, we know some will still get together and schools have asked for help. @VTEducation will direct schools to ask students or parents if they were part of multi-family gatherings and if the answer is yes, they'll need to go remote for 14 days or 7 days and a test. 9/

The absurd policy came about after Scott announced heavy lockdowns throughout the state.
Scott decreed, “Attendance at all public and private social, recreational and entertainment gatherings, indoor and outdoor, including large social gatherings incidental to ceremonies, holiday gatherings, parties and celebrations, shall be limited to participation with only members of a single household.”
COVID-mania has gotten completely out of control.
Scott is one of the few Republicans who has instituted draconian lockdowns; several Democrat Governors, Mayors, and other government employees have been caught flouting their own COVID protocols.
The brazenly unconstitutional COVID procedures are even more maddening because they are not backed by science.
Every study shows that young children are not vectors for the spread of the virus.
And esteemed infectious disease experts who signed onto the Great Barrington Declaration explained that the harsh lockdowns are doing more harm than good.
It seems that officials all over the world are ignoring the science and proceeding with lockdowns for no good reason at all.
Lockdowns have not proven to stop the spread of the virus, and they’re causing numerous tangential problems.
Encouraging children to snitch on their parents should be a wake-up call that the nonsense has gone way too far.
