(IntegrityMag.com) – Mask-wearing has become a politically divisive topic over the last two years. Many liberals believe there is no limit to the degree to which our leaders should mandate masks. Remember when California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) told diners they should replace their face coverings in between bites of food?
Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend? Don't forget to keep your mask on in between bites.

It appears this draconian approach to mask mandates might be coming at a cost to our children. On Tuesday, January 18, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson appeared on the Breitbart News Daily podcast to discuss the various negative impacts liberal policies have on our kids. He took aim at masks, in particular, claiming that making children wear them all the time is essentially a form of child abuse.
Dr. Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon, pointed out that facial expressions are a crucial element of human communication. By forcing all students to cover their faces throughout the school day, we’re essentially depriving young children of the chance to learn how to develop normally. Carson also criticized Democratic leaders for favoring doing away with standardized testing as an attempt to level the playing field between children of different ethnic backgrounds.
Do you agree with Dr. Carson’s position on the potentially detrimental effects of making children wear masks?
