The American people are beginning to wonder if the Democrats and their push for dominance and control, are actually signaling that American children will not be allowed to enjoy their freedom until everyone complies with Democrat-led Centers for Disease Control (CDC) demands for submissions. Consider the CDC’s demands for children’s Summer Camps.
“Masking kids at camp outdoors is simply virtue signaling. Requiring kids to wear masks at camps, even while outside playing in the heat, when it provides little additional protection is unfair and cruel to children,” reported an NIAID scientist on CDC’s newly released camp rules.
Summer camps are a rite of passage for American children, especially in a country where the left has decimated children’s year-round Scouting programs. In 2020 all Bible Vacations School Camps and other camps had to be closed down, and the power grab to control these favored American institutions goes on.
The Scientist isn’t alone.
“It has been well documented that kids are at exceedingly low risk of serious illness from COVID-19. For perspective, the CDC estimates that around 600 children died of influenza in the 2017–18 season; during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, 358 pediatric flu deaths were reported. Each year, more than 700 children die from drowning. Through the end of April, 277 have died from COVID-19,” David Zweig wrote for NY Magazine.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading government voice on Pandemic demands, said he felt the measures against children were “conservative.”
Current CDC guidelines for kids in summer camp state masks must be worn at all times—even outdoors—by everyone, including children as young as 2yo, and campers should stay 3ft apart.
Fauci: "I wouldn't call [the CDC guidelines] excessive…but they certainly are conservative."

See what you think:
- This guidance is intended for all types of youth day camps, with additional guidance provided for overnight camps. Organizations that provide summer day camps on school grounds should use the guidance. Summer learning programs on school grounds should follow CDC’s Operational Strategy for K-12 Schools.
- Consistent and layered use of multiple prevention strategies can help camps open safely for in-person activities; protect children, families, and staff; and slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
- This guidance describes physical distancing recommendations for day camps that align with current evidence for physical distancing in schools, including at least 3 feet physical distance between campers in the same cohort, except when eating and drinking (at least 6 feet); at least 6 feet physical distance between campers and staff; and at least 6 feet between campers in different cohorts. Additional guidance on physical distancing in overnight camps is also provided.
- This guidance outlines strategies that camp programs can use to maintain healthy environments and operations, lower the risk of COVID-19 spread in their programs, prepare for when someone is sick with COVID-19, and support coping and resilience.
Stephen Miller called the CDC to task over their oppressive demands and wrote.
“Why does Biden Admin continue to disregard science in order to punish American children? All these rules will achieve is keeping kids indoors & away from summer camp altogether.@POTUS runs exec branch, CDC included—he should rescind this guidance & open America’s summer camps.”

To many Americans, it feels like the CDC, led by Democrat Joe Biden, uses bad data and misinformation to manipulate and intimidate Americans, including parents, that their children will not be free until they comply with the government.
The Washington Post seems to get it.
CDC says coronavirus could be under control this summer in U.S. if people get vaccinated and are careful https://t.co/I9X8WTMOmV

It feels as if the CDC is trying to get ahold of recovery and re-direct it with their demands.
From the Washington Post article:
The report comes as administration officials and leaders in many states sound more confident that the country can return to a degree of normalcy relatively soon. President Biden on Tuesday announced a new vaccination goal, saying he wants 70 percent of adults to have had at least one dose by July 4.”
Note how Biden has weaponized our freedom on the 4th of July. It is questionable why Democrats support this kind of thing.
