County exec in DC suburb threatens school closures if more residents don’t get booster

When it comes to the track record of the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s easy to think of Ronald Reagan once saying the more the plans fail, the more the planners plan.

Marc Elrich, county executive of Montgomery County, Maryland, took to Twitter on Sunday to warn that if a sufficient number of local residents don’t get a vaccine booster, the county may have to shut down schools again sometime in the future and impose other mandates and restrictions.

“Being fully vaccinated at this point is not being completely protected. For us to weather future upticks and surges without mandates, virtual learning, or restrictions – we must increase our booster numbers,” Elrich tweeted.

Keep in mind, according to The New York Times, Montgomery County is one of the most vaccinated counties in America with 95 percent of those over age 65 having gotten the jab and 93 percent of those over age 5 vaccinated.

Of course, it was Frederick Douglass who observed that power once obtained is rarely relinquished without public demand, and officials in many parts of the country are in no hurry to let go of the sweeping powers they commandeered due to the emergency of a pandemic — never mind that many Americans, perhaps most, have moved on from the coronavirus, equating it today as little more than a seasonal virus like the flu given the weakened strains now being seen.

Conservative columnist Bethany Mandel, who apparently resides in the county, responded to Elrich’s warning to call for new leadership while linking to a donor page for new school board candidates.

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:

At this point in history, these small time dictators are PROUDLY announcing their IGNORANCE for all to see. It is now well known by those who read and pay attention that the target age group is practically immune to Covid, those who do contract Covid have very mild cases, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, the shots are the most dangerous (severe adverse reactions) for this age group. By his dictates, this county executive is DEMANDING that angry parents should campaign for his removal from office. Stupid is as stupid does, and he is showing that he is too stupid to remain in office.

This whole Covid thing has become a hobby, a passion, a lifestyle, a philosophy for some. Ordering people to put untested toxic ‘vaccine’ into themselves is the height of arrogance. Now we are seeing hundreds of kids in Europe and UK with major liver disease and you can bet it’s not a coincidence that it happened after they got ‘protected’ with the ‘vaccine’. At least one has died and 17 others have gotten liver transplants. In KIDS??

Isn’t a “vaccine” supposed to protect one from contracting a disease? Why do people with two shots and two boosters continue to get Covid?

When the hell are we going to be done with this? You idiots want to shut things down again? Go ahead and do it, but when you decide to go back in the classrooms, don’t be too surprised to see your teachers have been replaced and your unions are crumbled! People are not going to put up with this crap for too much longer and when the first idiot gets put on their ass, you will have found out just where their breaking point is. I will tell you right now, you are getting damn close…

I believe this county clerk has over stepped their pay grade. They’re fighting a losing battle against the people.

Shut them down! As long as the perverts at the Teachers Unions are in control of the education system, our children are not safe at school.
