CLASSROOM OR PRISON? Shocking video shows SC classroom overloaded with plexiglass barriers

“I really just need to know, was this really thought through?” 

Published

After months of anticipation, speculation and criticism, the CDC finally released updated guidance to help school systems decide the best path forward to bring students back into the classroom.

The update encourages school leaders to “layer” safety precautions: masks, social distancing, hand-washing, ventilation, building cleaning and contact tracing. 

Nowhere in the guidelines does it require – or even suggest – implementing jail-like plexiglass barriers around each individual desk, but one school in South Carolina is taking safety measures to the extreme. 


In a personal Facebook post, Horry County elementary school teacher Teresa Holmes shared an alarming video of her classroom ahead of the return to hybrid instruction. 

The classroom, which is expected to have 32 students at full capacity, resembles more of a jail than a place of learning. 

“Alright Mr. Richardson, I just have a question for the school board. I’m wondering, this is my classroom. I have a rather large classroom compared to the other classrooms in our building. But, I have 28 desks in here right now. If we go back 5 days a week, I’ll have 30 or 32 with the kids coming back from virtual. This is the middle seat of the back row of my classroom. This is their view of the board. So, I’m just wondering when we ordered this $5 million worth of plexiglass, did we have a classroom of 28 desks set up to where the school board members could sit in them and see what this was really going to be like? Because I’m still trying to figure out how, in between my classes, am I supposed to disinfect? How I’m supposed to hear my students when they’re in the back of the room wearing a mask behind all this plexiglass; how my students are going to be able to see my board or see me. I guess i’ll have to stand at the end of rows instead of at the board to try and work out problems or whatever. I really just need to know, was this really thought through?” 

The school district must have realized the room looks oddly terrifying, as they requested the fifth grade teacher remove the video from her social media, the Post and Courier reports.

Indeed, the outrageous plexiglass structures are ultimately going to further impact the students’ ability to learn: they restrict the view of the board, make it difficult to hear the teacher and put a damper on collaborative work with peers.

    This is the single most insane idea I have seen! It is time we stop this psy-op and call it what it is!

    These poor kids and many others around the world are doomed due to the ignorance of today’s “adults”. It’s really sad.

    Ok…So wouldn’t all this plexiglass mean alot more cleaning inside and out of each cube.There would be more time cleaning than educating…This is a waste of money & time…We are letting them create a global prison although we are already on “Prison Planet” and there’s no way to escape…This could endanger children more than protect…There is nothing to fear except fear itself…Making children fear adults fears takes away their childhood…THIS MUST STOP…

    However, in Philly, if they can’t hold grades, prison is next for them anyway!

    Wow. This is just plain absurd. It is demoralizing, at best. If I were a student, I would protest. And I would love to meet the fools who thought of this idea and put it in place, just to see what the fools look like. They clearly are not rational thinkers.
    The worst part of this pandemic virus fear is not actually being INFECTED by the virus, it is being AFFECTED by it all. May God help us get back to what we all know as normal, and just discontinue the “new normal” nonsense.

    This is insane. I would not send my child there. They need to be able to see and hear what’s going on. A waste of taxpayer money.

    Ok I hear you but at least our kids are going to school. It’s the only way to fit that many kids and follow protocols. It is not ideal and of course not permanent. We are all trying to do our best. I feel that I’d rather they be in school like this then to not be at school at all.

      This is what they are counting on… people to make lame excuses for them. You can walk across the room in handcuffs but you’re still a prisoner. You can’t have it both ways.

    I guess science really has nothing to do with this nonsense cause if it did we would still believe the world was flat and the earth was the center of the universe.
    This is the most preposterous setup imaginable and defies logic, and common sense in which we can all agree none of the expert panelist who set this prison up had.
    They should be voted out and fired immediately for failing the kids and the parents of this school system. Kids are the least likely to spread Covid, or die from it. We have to stop this madness now. Open the Schools period.

    How many of the School Board voted for Biden?
    It looks like most of them.

    Looks impossible for teacher to wake up student by hitting them with the board eraser.

    This looks like the college library I used to go to in the 1990’s- privacy and quietness were the focus. The people can still see each other to interact. Duh.

    The left is trying to dumb down our children so they are TOTALLY dependent on the fed govt for EVERYTHING! Wake up, America! GET BACK TO SCHOOL!

    How much longer is this madness going to be allowed to happen? They are scaring our children literally to death with fear mongering.
    Parents wake up! Protect your children before it’s too late!

Black Family Kicked Out of NYC Restaurant Over Vax Pass ‘Now the Kids Can’t Eat’ (VIDEO)

Published

on

Vax Pass

New Yorkers, due to their liberal policies, are being forced to choose between anti-segregation and vaccination status. As Free Press Fail writes, “We’ve said it a million times: the vaccine passports are racist.”

Now, “in New York City, they’re proving it” adds the outlet. An incident caught on video shows a Black family was kicked out of a restaurant for refusing to show their “vaccine passports.” In the video, the man filming can be heard saying “so you’re refusing to serve us?”

Although audio is low, the restaurant employee says something along the lines of “yes because you don’t have a vaccination card.” The man questions back, “so you’re going to enforce segregation? ‘Cause, we just told you that we’re religiously exempt.”

The restaurant staff member then claims the patrons said they did have vaccination cards, but the customer vehemently refutes the claim stating, “I never told you any of that. I would never tell you that.”

The customer then films around a panorama of inside the restaurant, saying aloud he’s not leaving and says loudly to other patrons, “Everybody in here’s ok with that? Everybody in here’s ok with setting up segregation in society?”

“Everybody’s ok with that? oh, we don’t have our vaccine cards, so now the kids can’t eat. We can’t eat. You guys are ok with that? This is the America you want to live in?”  Someone in that background can be heard yelling back, “yep.”

Tensions rose and the customer became more heated in the roughly five-minute video. “This is America, you need to wake up” the man shouted. Even more evidence of segregation may have presented itself when one woman in the background explains not everyone in the restaurant was asked for their vaccination cards.

Free Press Fail writes the data behind the claims that vaccines are racist:

Now, this is no surprise at all considering the demographics of those who are vaccinated. We KNOW 2/3rds of the vaccinated population is white. We KNOW only 9% of the vaccinated population is black and only 16% is Hispanic.

This kind of dismissiveness is just getting started. Especially when other (white) patrons in these dining areas are cheering on the managers who enforce these totalitarian mandates that treat the unvaccinated as “unclean.”

Comedian Jim Breuer Cancels Shows at Venues ‘Due to Segregation’ of Forced Vaccinations

Jim Breuer

One comedian is standing up to vaccine mandates, and one of the few celebrities brave enough to put his money where his mouth is, and he should be commended. Saturday Night Live alum Jim Breuer took to Facebook live to release a statement that he would not perform at venues demanding patrons receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

In a 22 minute Facebook live, Breuer said “two quick updates on shows that you may think you may be getting tickets to or you already have tickets to: The Wellmont Theater in New Jersey – not doing it.”

“Also the Royal Oak Theater in Michigan, due to the segregation of them forcing people to show up with vaccinations…I am also not doing those shows” added Breuer.

Aware of the monetary repercussions, Breuer stood by his morals. “I know I’m going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I’m not going to be enslaved to the system or money.”

Breuer continued that he believed getting vaccinated was “a choice” and was not concerned with any opinions of his fans or the public. “If you have anything else to say, I honestly don’t care.”

“Due to, I have to stick to my morals, I have to stick to what I know is right” he added. The comedian also noted his disappointment that patrons were being “forced” and “bribed” before they could attend shows.

While he stated he doesn’t blame venues for enforcing vaccine mandates in some cases, but rather governors and ticketing vendors. He said the venues were being held “hostage.” NBC News reported neither the Wellmont Theater nor the Royal Oak Theater responded to requests for comment Monday.

Breuer, 54, was part of the Saturday Night Live cast from 1995 to 1998 and was known for recurring characters including Goat Boy and celebrity impersonation of Joe Pesci. He was also in the 1998 film “Half Baked” alongside Dave Chappelle.
