January 1, Texas parent strips during school board meeting to make a point about masks



A Texas parent, James Akers, removed his clothing during a speech at the Dripping Springs Independent School District board meeting to make a point about the need for mask mandates.

The district decided it would make masks optional for the 2021-2022 academic year to comply with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) ban on mask mandates.

“At work, they made me wear this jacket. I hate it. They make me wear this shirt and tie. I hate it,” Akers said while removing the items.

He ended his speech after removing his shirt and pants to a round of cheers from the audience, saying: “It’s simple protocol people. We follow certain rules for a very good reason.”

“There’s too many voices out there that I think are digging in for political reasons and absolutely just not thinking about the common sense decisions we make every day to comply with everything,” Akers later told a local news station.

    The man has a very good point but I seriously doubt that anti-mask and anti-vax people are listening. Good try though.
