The snack issue in Spotsylvania County schools is nothing more than a fabricated crisis for those on the left to score political points. Notice that Lorita Daniels, Nicole Cole, Rich Lieberman and others use the snack donations as a political photo-op at every opportunity. There was never a snack crisis in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. The left wants us to pretend that Spotsylvania County has developed this unique problem in the last 6 months that no other local jurisdiction in the United States has developed.
The donation of snacks is a “want” and not a “need”. Don’t get us wrong. If you want to volunteer to donate, then go right ahead. It is your money. Do what you want. The snacks still need to be screened by the schools for liability reasons. They should not just be dropped off at random schools at random times without some orderly process in place that takes into account safety.
Let’s not pretend that there is a crisis. At the end of the day, parents are responsible for feeding their own children. Parents are fully capable of supplying their child with snacks. If a parent says that they cannot afford snacks, then we suggest that the parent make better life choices to be more financially stable instead of relying upon assistance. Furthermore, Spotsylvania County is not exactly a poor county with median household income that is higher than most areas of the state.
We know that this snack issue is a distraction to make politicians look good. Lorita Daniels wants to promote snacks to conceal her vile equity initiatives in the schools ahead of her re-election campaign. Equity platforms have proven to be very destructive in places such as Seattle. Lieberman promotes snacks because it distracts away from all the misogynistic social media posts he made over the past 12 years. He tries to remain relevant after a failed school board campaign. Cole promotes snacks because it distracts from her racist rants on social media and immature behavior at school board meetings.
