Horowitz: Your mask harms my baby

Even if masks worked, by definition, one who doesn’t wear one could not harm another person. After all, that other individual always has the ability to wear the mask and reap its amazing benefits, if he thinks they exist. On the other hand, it turns out that wearing a mask can actually harm others — the most vulnerable among us.

It was known from day one that children were not at risk from this virus. It was also evident from day one that shutting schools, isolating children, and then only exposing children to humanity through masks would destroy their physical, emotional, and mental health and reverse the language and developmental growth of a generation of children. A new U.K. report chronicles the degree of civilizational arson that was committed against our children, turning an entire generation of children into helpless creatures incapable of talking, learning, and performing basic functions.

“A few providers felt that wearing face masks continued to have a negative impact on children’s communication and language skills,” observed the report from the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (OFSTED). “Children turning 2 years old will have been surrounded by adults wearing masks for their whole lives and have therefore been unable to see lip movements or mouth shapes as regularly. Some providers have reported that delays to children’s speech and language development have led to them not socialising with other children as readily as they would have expected previously.”

While many have already focused on the harm of school closures to children, the shocking devastation to those who were infants and toddlers during the period of social mummification are incalculable and just becoming apparent. The report makes numerous observations regarding the youngest of children, now approximately 3-6 years old:

  • These children have limited vocabulary or lack of confidence to speak.

  • Babies have struggled to respond to basic facial expressions.

  • Children “have started to speak in accents and voices that resemble the material they have watched,” due to excessive screen time to keep them occupied during social isolation.

  • More children need help with basic self-care functions such as blowing their noses, putting on their coats, and tying their shoelaces.

  • More children have trouble telling time.

  • Fewer children are toilet-trained, making more children unready for school by age four.

  • Because of the lockdown, fewer infants and toddlers were walking outside and early childhood day care providers have noticed delays in crawling and walking.

The report notes that the cumulative effect of all these early childhood development problems has created a backlog for specialists in the field. Some communities have seen referrals to speech pathologists rise 22% above pre-lockdown baselines. The U.K. report is based on inspections of 70 nurseries and early child care provider centers between Jan. 17 and Feb. 4, 2022.

At least the U.K. government is coming clean about the devastation a day late, a dollar short. Our government is still covering up the problem, as the CDC is attempting to roll back key language developmental benchmarks for children to accommodate the “new normal.”

One could not possibly have conjured up a more nefarious plot to destroy the future of our children than the confluence of actions taken against them over the past two years. In fact, it’s gotten so bad for children that they might not have enough acumen to even learn about the licentious sexual curriculum these same actors desire to groom them with.
