A US Congressman is one of those spreading the nonsense at school board meetings over Covid protocols.
Local school boards have become the primary target of a nationwide far-right campaign of anti-vaccination/masking agitation, along with attacks over “critical race theory,” and Proud Boys see themselves as enforcers.
The whole campaign against CRT, in fact, appears to be primarily the work of a handful of astroturfing “dark money” right-wing organizations. And its central figure is named Christopher Rufo.
Womp Womp! Koch money isn't funding the LIBERTY! astroturf, so...surprise! The "where's my haircut" people are going back inside.
Trump enabler and Fox host Pete Hegseth wants his viewers to believe that most Americans are with these AstroTruf promoted stay-at-home "protesters," but polls say otherwise.
Fox's Jason Chaffetz and Pete Hegseth vow to keep covering these AstroTurf anti stay-at-home "protests" with no mention of who's funding them.
It's time to start tracking the people protesting lockdowns. They're a threat to public health. If they don't want their face seen they can wear a mask!
Anxious for a political angle to the ongoing pandemic story and one that can produce instant conflict (as well as compelling pictures), the news media are showering attention on the small groups of GOP protesters who are angry about life-saving social distancing orders.
Dr. Anthony Fauci speaks to ABC's George Stephanopoulos about the need for testing before the economy can recover, and the fact that these protesters ignoring stay-at-home guidelines is "going to backfire."
Just like they did during the Tea Party, Fox News is again pimping right-wing astroturf. This time, they'll be responsible for deaths.
