A Democrat political consultant took to Twitter to smear unmasked students as “d-ckheads” who should be penalized with low grades and then defiantly invited those who disagree to ratio him.

Ben Tribbett is the founder and president of northern Virginia-based Pocket Aces Consulting, which describes itself as “a full service political consulting firm specializing in helping Democratic campaigns and causes tell a persuasive story.”

“My favorite part of the ‘optional masks’ at schools crowd is that the teachers can identify the d-ckheads and make sure their grades reflect their caring for others,” Tribbett wrote on Twitter.

“I said it and I meant it. Ratio away,” he added, ‘ratio away’ meaning that he seemingly knew he was going to receive a ton of negative feedback.

Upon taking office, Glenn Youngkin, Virginia’s new GOP governor, issued an executive order that overturned a statewide mask mandate and prevents local school boards from imposing a face mask requirement on students.

Youngkin wants to leave it up to parents to decide whether or not their kids wear masks in school, i.e., making it optional.

Several school boards in the state have taken Youngkin to court, and the matter is currently pending before an Arlington County judge who intends to rule quickly. Further court challenges are likely.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends indoor masking in the K-12 environment regardless of COVID vaccination status.

Although the once-rebellious, suspicious-of-corporate-America left seems to have bought into the vaccine and mask idolatry during the coronavirus pandemic, some liberals appear to be having second thoughts about restrictions that have been imposed, particularly masks in class.

For example, an article in The Atlantic, a progressive outlet that Fox News host Tucker Carlson has described as a shameless corporate mouthpiece and a place for the ruling class to talk to itself, published an article in late January 2022 headlined “The Case Against Masks at School,” which you can read in its entirety for the full context.

The authors, two scientists and an ER doctor wrote, in part:

…We reviewed a variety of studies—some conducted by the CDC itself, some cited by the CDC as evidence of masking effectiveness in a school setting, and others touted by media to the same end—to try to find evidence that would justify the CDC’s no-end-in-sight mask guidance for the very-low-risk pediatric population, particularly post-vaccination. We came up empty-handed…

Therefore, the overall takeaway from these studies—that schools with mask mandates have lower COVID-19 transmission rates than schools without mask mandates—is not justified by the data that have been gathered…


In the meantime, Twitter has taken up Tribbett’s offer to respond, and it’s not coming up aces or persuasive for the consultant.

Here is just a small sampling (*warning for language):
