The progressive lynch mob on Twitter has targeted Carrie Underwood when she liked a video tweeted by conservative commentator Matt Walsh attacking mask mandates.
The country singer liked an Aug. 12 tweet from Walsh, which showed him speaking at a Metro Nashville Board of Education meeting to criticize a mandate requiring students to wear masks in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. In the video, Walsh lambasts the masks as both “child abuse” and “Munchausen by proxy.”
“If you think I’m exaggerating, then how would you respond to a parent who forced his kid to wear a football helmet every day, all day, for fear of falling coconuts and meteors?” Walsh said. “Your kid is almost as likely to die of COVID as he is from a rock from the sky, and yet if you saw that, you would say to that parent that he is abusive, that he is forcing his kid to participate in this utterly insane charade in order to satisfy his delusional psychotic hypochondria.”
Twitter users began to freak out on line that Underwood didn’t support government mask mandates.
It’s not just that Carrie Underwood liked an anti-mask tweet. It’s that Carrie Underwood liked an anti-mask tweet from Matt Walsh, one of those most negligently histrionic voices on the topic of protecting kids from COVID. 😬— Jeremy Hooper (@goodasyou) August 17, 2021
