School board meetings across the country are being disrupted by screaming Karens amid the raging pandemic, and it almost seems coordinated. The latest example is U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), who has no children and was homeschooled. He spoke Monday night at the Henderson County, North Carolina school board meeting and raged against Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper. Now, of course, you don’t have to have children to represent your constituents, but Cawthorn is all about photo-ops instead of helping the people in his district.
“You are not the king; we are not your subjects. We, the people, will not bow to you. We will not accept your edicts. North Carolinians have had enough,” Cawthorn insisted. “Stop using my constituents’ children as political pawns, educate them, don’t indoctrinate them. Stop forcing people to co-parent with the government. I urge you. Do the right thing.”

Cooper isn’t a “tyrant” governor, as Cawthron suggested. North Carolina’s governor is a moderate Democrat, and Cawthorn was interestingly addressing Cooper, who wasn’t at the school board meeting. Students in Henderson County will continue wearing masks after a nearly unanimous School Board voted Monday to continue its mandate, so Cawthorn’s stunt didn’t work.
According to BlueRidgeNow, Democrat Eric Gash, who hopes to win Cawthorn’s seat, accused the congressman of spreading misinformation about COVID-19.
“Mr. Cawthorn is the last person (who should be) coming in here telling us how to take care of our kids,” Gash said, before Cawthorn spoke. “He didn’t show up in the last 18 months and he repeatedly voted against relief for schools and he spread misinformation about the deadly virus…”
Jay Carey, according to the outlet, who is also a Democrat and candidate for Cawthorn’s seat, spoke in favor of the mask mandate.
“I urge you to continue to follow the science, continue to use the common sense that God gave us supporting this mask mandate until we can get through this,” he said.
It’s almost as if Cawthorn is on COVID’s side of the battle. Wearing a simple face mask to protect others from a contagious and spreading disease isn’t a new concept, and it’s certainly not tyrannical.
