Pretty sure Dan Rather didn’t think before tweeting about how easy it is to bully kids into doing things they don’t want to by applauding them for being more obedient than their parents when it comes to masking. Or, adults.
We get it, dunking on parents is SO HOT RIGHT NOW for influencers on the Left, but this was dumb, even for the Godfather of Fake News.
When it comes to wearing masks, most children seem to be acting like grown-ups, taking it in stride. I would say many adults are acting like children, but that’s not fair to kids.

Dan, just delete your account already. Seriously.
Just because your young child is used to being masked by you and other liberal totalitarians, doesn't make it right or humane.
Liberals are stupid.

Yeah, there was a time when uncomplaining kids worked in sweat shops too. Adults with brains realized that kids were suffering and ended child labor.

Dan, there are zero masks that are made for young children. Even if the science supported masking kids, which it dosen't, none would work. Is this hard to understand or something?

Kids don’t have an option to say “no” since it’s panicked parents who’ll take away their phone or ground them. Don’t act like a child is standing up but only following orders

At least they aren’t forging legal documents with fonts that weren’t existing at the time of their inception in order to push an outright falsehood about their political foes…

Won't forget this when studies come out supporting the anecdotes that masks are harmful mentally to kids and you try and gaslight your way out of Tweets like this. The anger against people like you is palpable.

Yes, it’s easy to train kids to do things and they complain far less than adults.
Which is why they make excellent factory workers and miners.
You can get them to do all kids of things- it’s called grooming.

great child soldiers too!

Adults misinterpret childhood response to trauma because children lack the experience to process it effectively. What you see as, "taking it in stride," is actually a huge problem because the trauma will manifest in more destructive and prolonged ways later.

This is akin to NY Gov tweet about beating children…

When did you have a chance to interact with most children?
— Dusty (@dustopian) January 25, 2022
Yeah, that sounds bad, right?
How many kids do you spend time with on a daily basis?
I can tell you my almost teenage son is struggling wearing a mask and it is taking a toll on him.

Now now, calling Dan a sanctimonious jackass is an insult to sanctimonious jackasses.
