“On February 19,1942 President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 that led to the internment of over 100,000 Japanese Americans as well as thousands of German and Italian Americans for over 4 years. This complete loss of civil liberties and human rights arose from a hysteria that this demographic of individuals posed a threat to society at large. I cannot think of a more fitting parallel to how our nation has targeted our children as being the greatest national security threat to the spread of COVID-19 despite science proving otherwise. Very early on in this pandemic science revealed that children played little role in the spread of COVID-19 compared to adults yet for unclear reasons our public health response, influenced by ideology over science, decided that they were to be the human shields necessary to protect adults.” (10/10/21)
