A group of students, who refused to wear life-saving masks at Washougal High School in Washington state, are being praised by right wingers, including “pro-life” advocates.
The students appear in a Feb. 2 viral video where one tells them not to wear masks: “We are just trying to gain back our rights as citizens. ” The student never mentions the “rights” that have been taken.
The Columbian reports there was a counter-protest against the science-denying students
A second video showed the science-denying students trying to enter the school without masks, being turned away and celebrating. The students were praised by right wingers on Twitter.

Looks like this is Part 2
I am not familiar with anyone involved with this video. It popped up on a local Telegram group.
Like everyone else, I am SO impressed by the young man speaking, along with the students who participated from Washougal High School. pic.twitter.com/k6ULXygY15
