Texas dad strips at school board meeting to support COVID-19 mask mandates
When one Texas dad wanted to show his support for requiring masks in school, he resorted to the naked truth ― literally.
The Lone Star State stopped enforcing Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) ban on mask mandates in schools last week, but the subject remains a contentious issue in the state.
During Monday night’s meeting of the Dripping Springs Independent School District, James Akers told board members the bare facts about masks in a speech he started fully clothed.
“I do not like the government, or any other entity, telling me what to do,” Akers said fully clothed, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But sometimes I’ve got to push the envelope a little bit. And I’ve decided I’m not just going to talk about it, I’m going to walk the walk.”
