A new advertisement from a group that says it is “committed to promoting and supporting center-right policies and ideas that better the lives of families, especially in America’s suburbs,” is smashing Democrat politicians and Hollywood celebrities on their mask wearing hypocrisy.
The group, N2 America, shared the ad on Twitter last week and said “Kids are locked out of school, locked out of learning, locked out of their childhood. Celebrities and media personalities and hypocritical politicians are partying like it’s 2019. That should disgust everyone.”
The ad showed kids watching television and seeing maskless celebrities, and showed other kids in a school environment wearing masks.
“They see the excitement. They see the joy. They see what they are missing,” it said.
“Democrats are putting kids last. Teachers’ unions are putting kids last,” it said. “Tell them to give kids their childhood back.”
Kids are locked out of school, locked out of learning, locked out of their childhood.

It comes as Democrat Georgia candidate for governor, Stacey Abrams, was caught not wearing a mask in a room full of masked kids, Fox News reported.
Abrams visited Glennwood Elementary School outside of Atlanta this past week to kick off the third annual African American read-in, where she met with young students and teachers. The principal, Dr. Holly Brookins, took to Twitter after the visit to post four pictures on her Twitter account of Abrams’ visit, which included three pictures of Abrams without a mask, despite the Decatur City Commission reinstating a mandatory masking ordinance last month.
The picture that went viral was Abrams sitting on the floor with her legs crossed and smiling without a mask on while the dozens of children and adults behind her were all wearing masks. Abrams quote tweeted the picture and told Brookins that her visit was “spectacular, delightful, and outstanding.”
As of Sunday morning, Brookins’ Twitter account appears to be deactivated and Abrams’ quote tweet is no longer on her Twitter account, but that hasn’t slowed down the backlash as the picture spreads across social media.
Abrams’ campaign pushed back on the criticism by, and we are not kidding, citing Black History Month being the impetus for the event.
“It is shameful that our opponents are using a Black History Month reading event for Georgia children as the impetus for a false political attack, and it is pitiful and predictable that our opponents continue to look for opportunities to distract from their failed records when it comes to protecting public health during the pandemic,” it said.
How that explains why she was maskless in a room full of masked kids is anyone’s guess.
“One of Stacey’s opponents downplayed the virus while trading stock to profit off the pandemic after his private coronavirus briefings as a Senator,” a spokesperson for the candidate said. “Another of her opponents attacked mayors seeking to protect their citizens and has failed to expand access to Medicaid even as rural hospitals close. This pathetic, transparent and silly attack is beneath anyone who claims he wants to lead Georgia.”
