A video of a Virginia parent has gone viral after he addressed the Loudoun County School Board on Tuesday about their school closures due to the coronavirus.
“You should all be fired form your day jobs,” he says to the school board. “You’re a bunch of cowards hiding behind our children as an excuse for keeping schools closed.”
The video was posted Tuesday on Twitter by Aliscia Andrews, a marine veteran and former Republican candidate for congress.
As of Thursday, the video has amassed more than 432,000 views.
“As a parent, this pandemic has brought forth some incredible challenges,” Andrews wrote. “This dad has had enough, we all have. No real metrics to safely open the schools, while the [school board] continues to kick the can further down the road. Many parents feel just as he does.”
As the father continues to speak to the school board, he grows increasingly louder and more angry.
“You think you’re some sort of martyrs because of the decisions you’re making when the statistics do not lie, that the vast majority of the population is not at risk from this virus.”
He grows more frustrated, “The garbage workers who pick up my freaking trash risk their lives every day more than anyone in this school system!”
“Figure it out! Or get off the podium,” he yells to the school board members. “Because you know what? There are people like me and a lot of other people out there who will gladly take your seat and figure it out. It’s not a high bar. Raise the freaking bar!”
While walking out of the board room, he can be heard saying: “I’ll be back next time. And the next time — till you open the freaking schools!”
Loudoun County superintendent Dr. Scott Ziegler addressed the school board and parents later in the meeting.
“I just like to remind folks in all of my discussions surrounding COVID-19, whether it be with teachers or principals or board members or parents, that we really need to come at this from a place where we are operating with patience, with flexibility, with comfort of the not yet known, and with grace,” said Ziegler. “We can have a differing of opinions, but we can express those opinions and express our thoughts on what the plan is moving forward.”
Many schools have transitioned back to virtual learning until a vaccine is available for all staff and students.
Loudoun County Public Schools have been completely virtual since December, amid rising coronavirus case numbers and positivity rates in Loudoun County.
More than 6,000 employees of Loudoun County Public Schools have now received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. By the end of this week, LCPS estimates that number will reach about 8,700.
Loudoun County School Board will vote next Tuesday on a plan to resume in-person school for students whose parents chose hybrid learning.
If approved, prekindergarten through fifth-grade students — whose parents chose hybrid learning — will be back in classrooms no later than Feb. 16.
Middle and high schoolers would return to classrooms for two days per week by March 3.
“Open schools and open them for everyone! Kindergarten thru 12th,” another parent said at the school board meeting.

Shocking Video: Pfizer Director admits internal discussions to ‘mutate’ COVID, ‘preemptively develop new vaccines’
A latest video from Project Veritas may be one of the most shocking undercover investigations yet. The video unearths “Pfizer is internally discussing the possibility of mutating the Covid virus themselves in order to taylor a vaccine to sell to the public” Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe explains.
The undercover video has gone viral and already garnered nearly 19 million views. The video begins with a Project Veritas journalist asking Pfizer’s Director of Research and Development Jordon Trishton Walker, “Pfizer ultimately is thinking about mutating COVID?”
Walker responded with a smile, “well, that is not what we say to the public. No.” Walker goes on to say “don’t tell anyone this by the way, you have to promise you won’t tell anyone” obviously unaware he is being recorded.
“We’re exploring like – you know how the virus keeps mutating?” Walker continues. “Well one of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we mutate it ourselves so we could – we could create – preemptively develop new vaccines, right?”
In a complete admittance of astronomical greed by the vaccine maker, Walker goes on: “So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine, no one wants to be having a Pharma company mutating f**king viruses. You have to be like very controlled to make sure that this virus that you mutate doesn’t create something like, you know goes everywhere.”
Walker then goes on to insinuate the coronavirus did in fact start in Wuhan:
“Which, I suspect is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. Like it makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere.”
