Democrats are determined to keep the state of emergency over COVID going for as long as possible by denying Americans the right to live their lives again. Repeatedly, it is the children who are the ones that suffer most.
On Monday, Joe Biden’s newly-installed CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that restrictions should apply to youth sports, blaming participation in the activities for a rise in new cases with younger people.
Walensky’s remarks came during a White House press briefing as the Biden administration continues to engage in fearmongering. Weary Americans wonder if the nightmare of lockdowns, mask mandates, and prohibitions on daily activity will ever end.
She warned that youth sports activity should be “limited” and that with the recent uptick in cases it is “even more important” to listen to the CDC.

“Cases are increasing nationally and we are seeing that they are predominantly in younger adults”, said Walensky. “This is why you’ve so clearly heard me share my concern”.
“We know that these increases are due in part to more highly transmissible variants that we are very closely monitoring”, she added, “We are learning that many outbreaks in young people are related to youth sports and extracurricular activities”, Walensky said, “According to CDC guidance, these activities should be limited”.
Walensky continued, “But if they are not, the risks of clusters can be prevented with cadence testing strategies as are being rolled out in so many different places”.
The big problem with Walensky is that she is all over the map and prone to emotional outbursts such as when she went “off script” last week to warn of “impending doom”. Compare that to her claim that vaccinated people don’t carry the virus, which led to her own agency having to issue a correction.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Walensky said that, “vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don’t get sick”, and, “that it’s not just in the clinical trials, it’s also in real-world data”.

That prompted a response from the CDC in which it contradicted its own director. Yet another blow to the agency’s reputation and credibility.
In comments to the New York Times, a CDC spokesperson clarified that, “Dr. Walensky spoke broadly during this interview”, adding that, “It’s possible that some people who are fully vaccinated could get COVID-19. The evidence isn’t clear whether they can spread the virus to others. We are continuing to evaluate the evidence”.
Dr. Walensky’s remarks on youth sports mark a shift in the administration’s COVID messaging to a focus on children. This behavior could serve to scare parents into lining their kids up to get “the jab” as Biden’s mass vaccination effort intensifies.
Walensky’s counterpart, Dr. Anthony Fauci, called for children to be forced to wear masks when playing together during one of his frequent media appearances.

Democrats continue to spread fear in order to prolong the state of emergency that has acted as one of the greatest things to happen to them politically. This doubling down is done in spite of the relaxing of restrictions and mask orders in multiple states that are looking to return to normal.
When it finally does come to an end (after enough Americans have rejected the constant hysteria) there is going to be long term damage to institutions. The CDC, the FBI, DOJ, and CIA have been transformed into political entities whose advice should now be viewed with the appropriate skepticism.
