At this point, we can confidently say that mask and vaccine mandates have passed “ridiculous” and moved on to “dangerous.” We have seen people denied medical treatment because they were unvaccinated, removed from flights because they weren’t wearing masks, and more. Now, a school has been placed on lockdown after a 16-year-old girl didn’t put on a mask.
Grace Smith has been bravely taking a stand against mask mandates, refusing to put on a mask and comply with ridiculous and unnecessary school mask mandates. Because of this, she faces quite a bit of punishment — and is on the way toward expulsion if she continues to get suspended for not wearing a mask. Recently, Grace was arrested — and the school placed on lockdown — because she continued to defy orders. RT reports:
A 16-year-old high school girl was arrested and her entire school locked down, all over her refusal to wear a face mask. Her arrest caused outrage on the right, and conservatives have started chipping in to her legal defense.
Video footage captured on Thursday showed 16-year-old Grace Smith met with school officials and a police officer when she turned up at the doors of Laramie High School in Wyoming. Smith had already served two consecutive suspensions for refusing to wear a face mask in class – per school board requirements – and again attempted to enter the building unmasked.
She was given a $500 citation by a police officer, then was handcuffed and arrested when she refused to voluntarily leave the school. As Smith refused to leave, a loudspeaker announcement informed students that “we are in a lockdown, please stay in your rooms.”
“I’m growing up in a country where I’m supposed to have my God-given rights to protect, and they’re being taken away,” she told the Laramie Boomerang. “Everybody has the freedom to wear a mask if they choose, but I believe everybody also has the right to not wear a mask if they choose.”
Grace’s family has retained an attorney to fight back. The high school junior is being harassed, intimidated, and denied an education simply because she won’t bow down to the weird, liberal pro-mask agenda. A GiveSendGo fundraiser has raised more than $36,000 toward protecting this child from legislative harassment.
“Grace has endured suspensions and was arrested for not wearing a mask. She has also been targeted by peers and school staff members for exercising her rights,” the fundraising description says. “Grace is raising funds to help with the legal cost of defending her civil liberties and the civil liberties of other students in Wyoming who are enduring the same unlawful treatment. By supporting this fight for their liberties, you are helping ensure the rights of every citizen of the state of Wyoming.”
It’s unclear what will happen with this case, but one thing is for certain: Grace deserves an education and this discrimination should be punished at every level.
