The Democrats' COVID-19 Double Standard

Adriana Cohen on

Something that is angering California parents are the San Diego teachers who are willing to teach in person to migrant children at local detention centers -- while taxpayers' children have been denied access to in-person education.

On what planet is this fair and equitable treatment of American citizens?

Meanwhile, flip-flopping Fauci was quick to call a Trump White House event a "superspreader event" after several attendees contracted the virus following a Sept. 26 Rose Garden event last year. "I think the data speak for themselves," Fauci told CBS News Radio. "We had a superspreader event in the White House, and it was in a situation where people were crowded together, were not wearing masks."

Perhaps the media will now ask Fauci and the CDC how many migrants are entering the United States without a mask and how many are being tested -- or not tested -- for the coronavirus prior to being released into our communities.

This year, Fauci also discouraged NFL fans from gathering with other households who wanted to watch the Super Bowl together. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director told Savannah Guthrie: "Every time we do have something like this, there always is a spike -- be it a holiday, Christmas, New Year's, Thanksgiving. ... Enjoy the game, watch it on television, but do it with the immediate members of your family, the people of your household. As much fun as it is to get together in a big Super Bowl party, now is not the time to do that."


Yet today, his new boss's reckless immigration policies have created a public health fiasco and superspreader events while they mandate that citizens socially distance, wear masks indefinitely and obey other stringent mitigation measures to "stop the spread."

Double standard, no?
