Despite a judge’s ruling recently suspending Illinois’ mask mandate, students in the state are being harassed, threatened, and punished for refusing to wear masks in schools. Tuesday, a string of videos was released to Twitter demonstrating just how insane these left-wing “educators” are.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
On Friday, central Illinois Judge Raylene Grischow granted a temporary restraining order to temporarily suspend the Illinois Department of Public Health and the state board of education’s requirements for masks, vaccines, and weekly coronavirus testing until the matter can be presented at trial.
Grischow’s ruling also prohibits the State’s 170 school districts from refusing teachers and students admittance to school buildings if they have been deemed as close contacts to those who tested positive for COVID.
Naturally, this decision caused quite an uproar from the Covid tyrants, but some ‘teachers’ inexplicably took matters into their own hands, lashing out and harassing the students who were now free to walk around without a face diaper.
On Monday – the first day of school following the judge’s decision, vengeful activists who call themselves educators punished the students for exercising their free choice. They opened windows and forced the students to endure the freezing temperatures, some students were held in detention or just kicked off campus altogether, and there were, of course, several unhinged rants that led to “double homework.”
@LibsofTikTok, a viral conservative account uncovering left-wing insanity on Twitter and TikTok, compiled a list of emails and videos showcasing the loony, abusive behavior of teachers in schools:
One teacher, Ben Diggle, an AP US History teacher at East Peoria Community High School, even blatantly exposed students to the cold winter air because the school made masks option. Diggle posted a message to his students, telling them to “dress warm,” but not too warm – adding that he will not allow Coats, hats, or blankets, per school rules.
Some schools in the state are even putting children and young high school students out in the frigid cold for refusing to mask. A Naperville student shared a clip of him and some of his fellow exiled classmates, explaining why the school ousted them into the bitter winter air:
Most insane of all is a threatening letter written from Illinois’ teachers’ union, which sounds just as ignorant and authoritarian as you can expect:
“The responsibility of this Union, and me specifically, is to care for the collective whole. Therefore, our MOA from September 13th remains fully intact; therefore, all provisions remain for our membership to remain masked when on campus and/or when representing District 88 in any capacity. This Union will still follow science, which continues to support mask wearing for all individuals ages two and older to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and all its variants.
Unfortunately, we are going to receive letters from Jean tonight that state that we are not to confront students who are unmasked tomorrow. In no way should you be encouraging or supporting this behavior. Nonetheless, this is our new reality until the appeal is approved and a stay order is in effect. This could take a couple of days; however, we would hope it happens sometime tomorrow. In addition, the union is filing a grievance against District 88 for not following the mask mandates.
If these five…children…at Willowbrook want to remain unmasked, then they can be dealt with; however, all other children should remain masked. This is the contention of the Union and will remain so. The problem is, badly raised students will probably be unmasked tomorrow.”
The full letter, provided by @libsoftiktok, is below:
Illinois teacher’s union sent this to all their members calling the judge who ordered masking be made optional “inept and corrupt” and warn that to remain a member you must wear a mask. pic.twitter.com/oaXlRW1WLa

These instances of child abuse in schools should not be tolerated, and the teachers perpetrating this insanity should be charged criminally.
