Truly an asshole.
Eric Schmitt @Eric_Schmitt
Forced masking of school kids is ineffective, illegal & wrong.
To the school district bureaucrats still pushing these mandates — lawsuits will be filed this week.
Parents and families should be able to make these decisions for themselves.
The calvary is coming. #NoMaskMandates

“Cavalry” you moron.
Some of the responses:
Tell that to the parents missing work at home this week in Missouri because schools are closed due to high case numbers.
Eric, we are not free to drive drunk, run red lights & stop signs, because those “freedoms” have negative effects on ourselves & others.
We are in a pandemic w/a way out, the mitigations were not there before, why would they remain after? We need to fight COVID, not each other!
It wasn’t ineffective until you started messing with the system. Our kids were in school more & even had fewer missed days due to flu and rotoviruses when the strategies were in full play. Illegal, nope, no more illegal than any school dress code. Wrong, again nope. Cite a source
“Hardworking Missourians have invested a lot in their communities & kids’ schools. We need to protect these investments & make sure they’re not wasted in a fight against frivolous lawsuits brought by someone always running for higher office.”
Your tweet is misleading. As per CDC, masks have been shown to be effective. Indeed, they are not 100% effective, but they do offer some protection.
“Calvary?” Do you realize you’ve used a religious term to describe your attack against Covid mitigation? It makes me wonder about your true motivations. [….]
We dont have to wonder. Purely political.
Stop using our tax dollars for these lawsuits! Stop fighting FOR covid! JUST STOP!
1. It is cavalry.
2. 9 days back in school and my middle school had over 10% positive Covid cases without masks. The close contacts outnumbered the student body.
3. Get a dictionary and go donate blood. That might actually help someone.
It is not ineffective. It’s imperfect, yes, but masking reduces the spread of disease significantly (and not just COVID, either). You are lying to people, and you’re not helping anyone but yourself.
calvary however, refers to “an open air depiction of the crucifixion,” or more recently “an experience of intense suffering.”
Eric, I’ve heard meditation and anti- anxiety drugs can help people who struggle with hysteria.
Maybe worth a shot.
Our Hospitals are struggling our schools are struggling we need help. Listen to what the hospitals are saying. Too many people are dying, every life is important. Mask help, help the schools and hospitals by stopping this maddness. This is beyond evil what you are doing!
You just want to be wrong about everything, don’t you?
No, no, and no. It is effective according to experts (you are not one). It is legal according to experts (you are not one). And it is right according to people who have a soul (you do not).
Not ineffective according to the data
Not illegal and you should know better
Not wrong when we are trying to protect our communities as a whole during a pandemic
This pandering to uninformed voters is disgusting
Sir, my kids’ school district had 35 cases as the highest rate with a mask mandate in place. Two after it was allowed to expire, it had gone to over 100. This past week saw 270 cases. We are now shutting down schools because everyone is getting sick. Please stop grandstanding.
trying to climb to the senate on a stack of bodies.
Instead because Covid number quadrupled without masks our schools are now closed for at least a week. Congratulations Eric you screwed parents even harder
“The calvary is coming”
Seriously, who says that? What a doofus.
We are in the midst of a generational public health crisis and you want to play Bootheel Braveheart. Stop taking yourself so seriously and work to fight the real problem at hand.
