It was a year ago this month that we learned that teachers’ unions had influenced the CDC’s guidance on reopening schools. The CDC just said it was getting input from stakeholders, but we thought science was the one and only guiding force.
American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is probably the most ratio’d person on Twitter and she’s found that button that restricts people from commenting on her threads now. The quote-tweets are still there, though:
We welcome these long-needed new metrics for a safe off-ramp from universal masking. The CDC’s guidance is informed by science, not politics, and sets us on a path to a new normal in schools and other public places. https://t.co/CHKW9nZSH6

The political agent who forced the CDC to rewrite school opening guidance last year wants you to trust the process. https://t.co/ji1qjgY4nw

You are a political actor who dictated the CDC’s school opening policy. https://t.co/138LJSmUDD

Everything the CDC has done has been guided by politics … and your union, Randi. And everything they did to our children to appease you and your union will forever follow you because we won’t let you forget. https://t.co/Z9wXCFtI1B

Imagine saying that CDC guidance is informed by science, not politics, and thinking that anyone with a functioning brain believes you after what we’ve all witnessed. https://t.co/JVz8oMU602

Don’t act like we don’t remember what you did for 2 years to our kids and grandkids for political gain and then disable the comments now. We can still ratio your ass by QT.
We will never forget. https://t.co/QW3Ms48wiv

You claimed parents who wanted schools reopened were secretly controlled by "the Jewish ownership class." https://t.co/v39ByevBY5

Sorry, didn't hear you. Did you say something?

“Informed by science, not politics”
Most people wouldn’t feel the need to say that unless it weren’t so transparently political. You’re effectively lampshading what we all know:
The CDC is all politics now. https://t.co/4ikVgFq1GT

When you have to say that something is “informed by science, not politics” you can guarantee it is 100% politics. https://t.co/ry0ODjfM1T

Baloney. The “science” hasn’t changed. Only the politics have.
Secondly, many schools have been mask optional for a long time now and they did that in spite of you. Every step of the way you were an obstacle and that should be remembered. https://t.co/tQF7WB7q1a

Hearing reports from Twitter headquarters that @rweingarten is being awarded this year's Triple Crown: most tweets in a row with replies turned off, most number of ratio'd tweets, and most hated person on Twitter. Huge congrats on this amazing milestone!! https://t.co/4mGm0sEIsE

No, nothing in your decision making has anything to do with science. We’ve been telling you for the past two years that mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and lockdowns do nothing to help reduce covid, and you kept ignoring us https://t.co/YtULu9hFCg

The CDC's guidance is informed by polling.
You are an evil woman. You've set kids back.
