Brazos Valley Hospitalizations Continue to Decline After Mask Order Rescinded

Things got heated to the point of almost coming to blows as concerned parents in Penfield, New York, after school board member William Yaeger called one father an “a**hole” over some rules about masks and critical race theory-based curriculum.

According to the Daily Wire, Rich Tyson, who has a daughter attending a Penfield school, watched as Yeager made rude, dismissive gestures towards parents as they voiced concerns and objections over mask policies and the “diversity, equity, and inclusion” curriculum for the school.

Yeager was called out for the gesture by an older woman who asked him “what is that?” In reaction, he made the gesture again, this time openly mocking her. That was when Tyson stepped in and told Yeager he needs to be more respectful.

“Be respectful!” Tyson yelled. “You’re an elected representative representing us, this isn’t about you, bud.”

“You’re not gonna stand up here and do anything to me, a**hole,” Yaeger yelled back.

At that point, Tyson left his seat and made his way to the stage where he mounted it and approached Yeager. From there you can see many people begin to restrain Yeager while Tyson tells him off.

Tyson gave his side of the story to WROC-TV, noting that if Yeager wasn’t restrained it probably would have resulted in things getting physically violent:

“He (Yaeger) started kind of motioning for me to come toward the stage, which I did start walking, then he dropped an F-bomb on me,” Tyson told WROC. “That’s when I walked and jumped up on the stage, not to be physically confrontational, but I wanted to address it with him face to face. By the time I got there he had become essentially unhinged.”

“The superintendent, Dr. [Thomas] Putnam, and a few other board members were basically having to restrain him,” Tyson continued. “He was
