Many Americans knew from the outset that the COVID restrictions placed on the people went above and beyond what was necessary causing untold damage.
An author at The Atlantic recently wrote an op ed suggesting “pandemic amnesty” was needed and freedom fighters should just forgive and forget the damage done.
But Conservatives blasted Randi Weingarten after she begged for amnesty for harming thousands of children.
Columnist suggest those who were called “anti-vaxxers” should just forgive and forget
Throughout the past couple years, conservatives have been defending personal liberties and it hasn’t been easy.
Many were called “anti-vaxxers” and “science deniers” while those with the most power changed the lives of millions of Americans – specifically harming children.
Now Emily Oster, a columnist at The Atlantic is calling for pandemic amnesty.
A major proponent of school closures, Oster now calls the precautions, “totally misguided” but also claimed that “we didn’t know better.”
She said that the missteps weren’t “nefarious” but made out of “uncertainty” and though “some people intended to mislead and made wildly irresponsible claims” it was important for others to combat the misinformation – even if they don’t know better.
Teachers union boss is admonished for echoing the call to “forget” the policies she enacted
Following the release of the article, the President of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten shared it on Twitter saying, “I agree with @ProfEmilyOster on this.”
Her remark was met with swift condemnation from all those people affected by Weingarten’s heinous actions.
Ted Cruz led the charge against giving Weingarten a strong “HELL NO.”
He added, “Now Randi is saying, ‘please don’t blame me for shutting down schools for a year & hurting tens of millions of kids. Just forget about it.’”

Michigan Republican candidate for Governor Tudor Dixon is hoping to unseat a COVID tyrant, Gretchen Whitmer.
Dixon was left in awe of the request saying, “You can’t make this up.”
She slammed the idea of amnesty stating, “Gretchen and her union boss puppet master are now trying to rewrite history. They want you to forget how they locked your kids out of school. Parents know better.”

Of course you want COVID Amnesty.

We will not forget. https://t.co/w4QdbcjbBS

Former House candidate suggests Weingarten be summoned to the Hague
Shukri Abdirahman, a former House candidate out of Minnesota suggested that Weingarten be summoned before the UN’s International Court of Justice at the Hague.
Abdirahman says Americans “will never forgive or forget” the two years of school closures and the “incalculable and irreversible damages” to the development of American children.
You'd be summoned to The Hague.
You locked down our children's schools for two years and caused incalculable and irreversible damages to their wellbeing and development.
We will never forgive you or forget. https://t.co/cL1LQW01YD

Conservative commentator, Clay Travis slammed her for being “100% wrong on school shutdowns” and refusing to apologize.
He said if she had any decency she would resign “for presiding over the greatest American education failure of all of our lives.”
Of course you do. Because you were 100% wrong on school shutdowns and refuse to apologize for it. If you had any decency at all, you’d resign for presiding over the greatest American education failure of our lives. https://t.co/9Nj0UpRfUW

Apologies are certainly warranted in these circumstances and could help in the healing process.
But it’s going to be a long time before American parents can forgive the people who were responsible for this fiasco.
