Watch: Protesters in Tennessee Heckle Doctors, Nurses, And School Board for Wanting to Mask Kids

Finally, there is something going on.

It’s obviously too late, and we’re obviously completely doomed.

But at least the cattle are rustling a bit.


Heated arguments spilled out into the parking lot Tuesday night after a school board in a suburban Tennessee county approved a temporary requirement for masks in elementary schools due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Board of Education in Williamson County, just south of Nashville, approved the mask requirement for elementary school students, staff and visitors inside all buildings and on buses beginning Thursday and ending September 21, according to information from the school district.

During the board’s special session, parents on both sides of the issue shared their opinions with the board.

One parent, who identified himself as Daniel Jordan, a former Marine, told the board, “Actions have consequences. If you vote for this, we will come for you, in a non-violent way. … In the past, you dealt with sheep, now prepare yourself to deal with lions.”

Jennifer King, a parent and pediatric intensive care physician, said, “As a pediatric ICU physician, we are seeing more younger previously healthy children admitted with respiratory failure and acute respiratory distress syndrome than we have in prior strains, as cases in children are on the rise. This trend will only worsen if we don’t act now.”

During the meeting, the crowd cheered, clapped and booed, and people holding signs were at one point asked to clear the room.

Video obtained by CNN from outside the meeting also showed crowds heckling masked individuals leaving the meeting, with one man saying, “We know who you are. You can leave freely, but we will find you.” A Williamson County Sheriff’s Office sergeant could be seen imploring the crowd to be peaceful.

The temporary mask mandate will allow teachers who are at least six feet from students to remove their masks, the district said. The measure applies specifically to elementary schools, and masks are strongly encouraged for middle and high school students.

There are even women out there!

Who would have imagined that a woman would ever do anything?
