Why aren’t Democrats putting out ads like this? Why aren’t they as outraged enough to want to fight for our children? Republicans are sending children to their deaths because of some political game; some twisted idea of winning and keeping power. We need to do everything within our power to stop this madness. Next time it could be your child. Do you want to wait for that to happen?:
A new ad from the conservative Lincoln Project takes aim at Republican Govs. Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas over their opposition to school mask mandates.
The ad includes footage of a 9-year-old Florida boy hospitalized with COVID-related pneumonia that has gone viral on social media in recent days.
In a Twitter post sharing the footage last week, retired union representative Katherine MacKenzie wrote: “(H)ere’s what a 9 yr old with pneumonia looks like. He spent 3 days in P-ICU 6 days in all in the hospital. If you could prevent a child from going through this just by wearing masks why the hell wouldn’t you?”
MacKenzie’s post has been retweeted nearly 20,000 times.
It’s got FOX all riled up:
