County music star Carrie Underwood is under fire for — wait for it — liking a Matt Walsh tweet that shows an anti-mask speech he gave last week. Those who like masks more than their own children are firing negative tweets towards Underwood faster than the Taliban can scoop up free firearms.

Walsh gave a speech to the Nashville school board late last week and spoke out against mask mandates for children. Walsh compared the school board’s decision to mandate masks to rabid dogs wearing muzzles. He went on to compare children being made to wear masks with child abuse and listed a number of facts that show that mask mandates are ineffective and harmful. He closed his speech by saying the mandate is a disgrace and that the school board should all be ashamed of themselves. His powerful, factual speech was met with a round of applause.
The 2:20 video has been viewed more than 1 million times in less than a week.
Underwood, along with 43,500 others, gave the tweet a “like.” But the fact that she had her own opinion ruffled more than a few feathers.
Eww Carrie Underwood.
We always knew Kelly Clarkson was the only true Idol winner. Thanks for proving it again ✌🏻

I’m here for the Carrie Underwood downfall.

Despite the unwarranted but utterly predictable backlash from the woke mob, Underwood’s also been on the receiving end of plenty of positive vibes:

Everyone knows Carrie Underwood is a much better and more talented person than Taylor Swift.
Turns out she’s smarter, too.
Taylor chose to become a liberal activist while Carrie stayed out of politics and quietly keeps it to herself.
She liked a post and the Left is MAD! 😂

Carrie Underwood liked a video about kids not being forced to wear masks – a position totally supported by data – and she’s being called an anti-vaxxer. In case you thought your “nuanced” takes would save you from the leftist cancel mob… they won’t

Underwood’s provided us with a slew of hits, but Tuesday’s hit to the left is definitely a chart topper.
