Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont had to be escorted away by security after he was surrounded by a group of anti-mask protesters, fuming at his support for school mask mandates.
The heated standoff between the governor and the parents took place outside Highland Elementary School in Cheshire on Wednesday after he emerged from a mask roundtable, which had to be wrapped up early after protesters raised hell over a potential extension of a school mask mandate past September 30.
Footage from the meeting shows protesters chanting: “You are all criminals” and waving anti-mask signs at the governor.

Parents found out about Lamont's appearance at the "COVID mandate educator celebration" garbage news conference.I am not saying I like this, but I'm also saying...People need to stand up and speak out.This ends when WE THE PEOPLE end it.https://t.co/GDn1u03VKc— CT LIBERTY RALLY (@CTLibertyRally) August 25, 2021
Given the opportunity to condemn this disruptive, hostile behavior and promote civil discourse, the CT Republican chair instead says that requiring masks in schools is the first step in abolishing boards of education. It’s Q-level conspiracy madness and it infests the CT GOP. https://t.co/FnfWDKU8wV— Connecticut Dems (@CTDems) August 26, 2021
