Attorney General Blasts Schools and Medical Authorities Pushing Mask Mandates


SAN ANGELO, TX – As the battle regarding mask mandates continues across Texas, the Texas Attorney General has compiled a list of "gov­ern­ment enti­ties unlaw­ful­ly impos­ing mask mandates." The mask mandates have been a response to a significant increase in Covid infections across the state.

According to the office of AG Ken Paxton, his office is "committed to protecting the rights and freedoms of all Texans."

Executive order GA-38 signed by Governor Abbott late last month, effectively prohibiting "governmental entities and officials from mandating face coverings or vaccines."

The list features more than 80 school districts and counties that are considered non-compliant by the state or were previously including the San Angelo ISD.

According to the site, (1) * indicates entities that are non-compliant and have received a letter from the AG's office –– (2) ** indicates they are now in compliance.

The Republican* Texas attorney General Ken Paxton who cleared himself of bribery and misuse of office?

Also, why are republicans so set on putting children in harms way and potentially killing them? That "pro-life" stance they claim to have sure is quite the lie they have been spouting in the attempt to ban medical procedures. Can't please republicans and you sure can't rely on them to even come close to telling the truth about anything. They even tried taking over the government to install a dictator on January 6th. 

More lies just admit that abortion is not simply a “medical procedure”, it’s the taking of a human life!


You don't care about human lives. You and your fellow Republicans' anti mask and anti Vax stance prove that.

It’s still flawed logic no matter how many times you say it. 

Do all Democrats wear masks and get the vaccine? No. 
Do all Republicans refuse to wear masks and refuse the vaccine? No. 

Your logic = Democrats and Republicans do not care about human lives

No you don’t care. Sixty MILLION lives lost to abortion in the U.S. alone since Roe v. Wade!

Ninety-nine percent of those catching covid survive…the victims of abortion die EVERY TIME.

RvW is also about the government staying out of citizens medical decisions. Looks like republicans stance on keeping government out of citizens lives is out the window too. Republicans truly stand for nothing don't they? Well, except them wanting to take over the government and install a dictator just because they couldn't stop crying about their guy losing a free and fair election, this we know of because of January 6th.

RvW is ALL about the govt forcing a mandate on citizens. 

Another flaw in your logic, ELECTED republicans, evidently stand fo nothing.  Just like ELECTED democrats.  Same party, same games.  

Once republicans get ahold of rights they will start issuing blanket bans on everything they don't like. They are already trying to ban safety equipment that may help save children's lives. They also make laws against people voting and to suppress votes of people they don't like. It won't end, the more power Republicans get the less freedoms and rights we have. 

The comments here are truly comical, especially from a perspective outside of the little box everyone has seemed to place themselves in. If the Rs were replaced with Ds, it would be like a mirror, one side a reflection of the other. Different side of the same coin. 

I disagree there is no “middle ground” when it comes to certain issues.

I think you misunderstood my comment. Me someone is obviously a Democrat. In his comment he blames Republicans. I was saying that I’ve heard the same rhetoric come from Republicans. The facade of the two party system has blinded people. People have bought into it and now EVERYTHING is political. 


I am not on a “middle ground.” I don’t believe in the system, period. I don’t need to be a Republican to believe abortion is murder, that is a moral issue. Morality is NOT a political issue. Morality cannot come from any man, only from God. 


Besides, under Trump, and a fully Republican Congress, was Planned Parenthood defunded? No. Another game they (Ds and Rs) play is on firearms. Did Obama the Terrible ban bump stocks? No. Did Trump? Yes. They are so many instances where each party betrays their base and votes contrary to their campaign promises. Yet, the “Republican” media outlets spin it in a way that favors them,  and the “Democrat” media outlets spin it in a way that favors them. 

How funny a brainwashed leftist ideologue lecturing others on freedom and rights ;)

No, this is funny y’all think this is the first president that’s been instructed? They have a narrative and an agenda to adhere to. Biden slipped up about his puppeteers.
