(PresidentialWire.com)- A new report commissioned by the Irish government just revealed the obvious: making children wear masks in school is not a good idea.
The health report identified a number of problems with forcing young children to wear masks, including stunting language skills and making anxiety worse. It was put together by the Health Information and Quality Authority and released back in March, and was even used by Dublin’s local government to decide not to mandate masks for children in elementary schools.
However, the report is now making the rounds as the United States leans increasingly towards issuing similar mandates, and forcing young people to wear masks when they return to school at the end of summer.
The paper also said that the transmission of COVID-19 in a school environment is low, and when combined with the fact that young children struggle to wear the masks properly anyway, issuing mask mandates is a horrible idea.
Imagine being a child in school and told that you must wear a mask for hours per day. How would that affect you?
Popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed the contents of the study during a recent episode of his “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show, describing it as evidence of “child abuse” and describing masks as “moist paper burkas.”

Carlson asked what the benefit of forcing children to wear masks really is, citing the evidence from the Irish government that there simply is no benefit.
He also revealed how the report showed that the extent of transmission between children was low, and that in the United Kingdom, the consensus view was that schoolchildren under the age of 12 should not be forced to wear face coverings.
Tucker Carlson isn’t just a popular news anchor, but a voice for a significant portion of the American population. So the question is…are the Democrats listening?
And will they consider this report and follow the science?
