As Twitchy reported earlier, the ACLU announced it was suing to end South Carolina’s ban on mask mandates in schools, arguing that “students with disabilities are effectively being excluded from public schools because of this ban.” President Biden’s Department of Education is taking the same tack in launching civil rights investigations into five states that ban schools from mandating masks.
The U.S. Dept of Education announced investigations into five GOP-led states that banned masks in schools. Iowa, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee & Utah were warned that their laws banning schools from mandating masks could be a civil rights violation. https://t.co/ydIRDNpyPm

“Civil rights” investigation. That’s rich.

They can still wear a mask even when it’s not mandated, there’s nothing stopping people from doing that.

It’s an infringement on civil rights for the states NOT to be able to force you to wear a mask … is that right?
That seems kind of ironic

Let me see if I understand.
They are launching CIVIL RIGHTS investigations into those states that aren’t FORCING people to wear masks?
Is that what it is?

What is there to investigate???!!!

Ah, yes. Because allowing people to choose whether to wear a mask, inherently securing their right to do so, is OBVIOUSLY in violation of civil rights. Because reasons.

I mean, I really hate to be one that has to say this… But, not being forced to do something isn't violating civil rights….

In what world is telling people they don’t have to wear a mask if they don’t want to an infringement on civil rights?

"Civil rights" has always just been a buzzword for "leftists get to force you to do whatever they want"

Is the ACLU going to have to prove in court that wearing masks in schools reduces the spread of coronavirus?
