Journalist and author Bari Weiss blasted school closures and restrictions brought on during the pandemic as a 'catastrophic moral crime' and said that life must return to normal.
Speaking on Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night, the Substack journalist declared that she is 'done with covid!'
Journalist Bari Weiss has said life need to return to normal and restrictions end
Speaking on HBO's Real Time with Bill Marr she suggested that remote learning is having a negative effect on children's mental health
Weiss said that the pandemic will be remembered as a 'moral crime' for the restrictions that it imposed on people's lives
'We were told you get the vaccine, you get the vaccine and you get back to normal. And we haven't gotten back to normal. And it's ridiculous at this point,' Weiss began on the HBO show.
'I know that so many of my liberal and progressive friends are with me on this and they do not want to say it out loud because they are scared to be called anti-vaxxed or to be called science deniers or to be smeared as a Trumper,' Weiss explained.
'I'm sorry, but if you believe the science, you will look at the data that we did not have two years ago and you will find out that cloth masks do not do anything. You will realize that you can show your vaccine passport at a restaurant and still be asymptomatic in carrying Omicron. And you realize, most importantly, that this will be remembered by the younger generation as a catastrophic moral crime.'
Weiss noted how remote learning was undoubtedly having a detrimental effect on students who are still subjected to lessons over Zoom.
A school in Flint, Michigan recently announced there would be indefinite virtual learning. Weiss said that it was leading to growing incidents of self-harm among young girls.
'That is why we need to end the lockdowns and declare it a pandemic of bureaucracy,' she said.
Weiss then stated how she was concerned about the amount of misinformation floating around.
Last week, liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor incorrectly claimed during a hearing on President Biden's vaccine mandate that 100,000 children in the U.S. with Covid-19 are in 'serious condition.'
The justice, appointed by former President Obama, also claimed that Omicron is 'just as deadly' as the Delta variant for the unvaccinated.
Studies have shown the Omicron variant to be more infectious but less virulent than past strains of Covid-19.
It also forced CDC Director Rochelle Walensky to correct Sotomayor's numbers claim during a segment of Fox News Sunday.
'The number is not 100,000. It's roughly 3500 in hospitals now?' asked host Bret Baier.
'Yes - while pediatric hospitalizations are rising, they're still about 15 fold less than hospitalizations of our older age or age demographic,' Walinsky stated.
Sotomayor's egregious miscalculation - which can be easily debunked with data reported by the CDC.
'There is misinformation and not just on podcasts and the internet. It's also on cable news,' Weiss said
'The Democrats are supposed to be the party of the little guy… You know what the Democrats are now comfortable with, or seemingly comfortable with? A two-tiered system in which the haves get to go into a restaurant, laugh with their friends for hours and the people serving them are masked and wearing gloves.
'Where they get to walk, as AOC did, at the Met Gala while in the background the staff looked like they were in The Handmaid's Tale. I mean, this is, this is a look that is unbelievably detrimental to them.'
