New York Times notes that many parents have become 'increasingly dogmatic' during the pandemic

One thing that came across loud and clear in Virginia’s gubernatorial race is that parents will vote in the best interests of their children, and telling them that they shouldn’t have a say in what schools teach was not a winning strategy. Then we had the Justice Department set up a task force to counter the “domestic terrorists” who were showing up at school board meetings and having their say.

We’re not sure why the New York Times is visiting this today, but it’s reporting that some parents changed their politics in the pandemic, and it’s going to have an effect on the midterm elections. They used to be Republicans and Democrats, but now they’re just … parents.

Sheera Frenkel writes:

Nearly half of Americans oppose masking and a similar share is against vaccine mandates for schoolchildren, polls show. But what is obscured
in those numbers is the intensity with which some parents have embraced these views. While they once described themselves as
Republicans or Democrats, they now identify as independents who plan to vote based solely on vaccine policies.

Their transformation injects an unpredictable element into November’s midterm elections. Fueled by a sense of righteousness
after Covid vaccine and mask mandates ended, many of these parents have become increasingly dogmatic, convinced that unless they act, new
mandates will be passed after the midterms.

To back up their beliefs, some have organized rallies and disrupted local school board meetings. Others are raising money for anti-mask
and anti-vaccine candidates like J.D. Vance, the Republican nominee for Senate in Ohio; Reinette Senum, an independent running for
governor in California; and Rob Astorino, a Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York.

Frenkel adds that worried parents shared notes and online articles — “many of them misleading” — about the reopening of schools and the efficacy of vaccines and masks.

It’s so odd how the mainstream media and the Left view “parents” as some sort of obstruction to their desired ends.
