WATCH: Cute Young Children Burn Face Masks Outside Idaho State Capitol While Shouting ‘Destroy Them!’

UPDATE: There were mask burnings all over Idaho on Saturday.

A group of adorable young children did not hold back their feelings about face masks outside the Idaho State Capitol on Saturday.

The kids were filmed tossing masks into a fire while shouting “destroy them!”

Several hundred people attended the mask burning protest on the Capitol steps.

The kids were all smiles as they gleefully tossed the masks into the barrel to burn.

Children and teens have likely been the hardest hit psychologically by the pandemic and subsequent mask mandates, lockdowns and school shut downs.

Child psychiatrists have been warning of increased suicide risk among youths during these awful times. NPR reports that along with a spike in suicide, “many suicidal children have been showing up in hospital emergency departments, and more kids are needing in-patient care after serious suicide attempts.”

Most children who contract COVID have very mild symptoms — leaving many worried that the prevention may be worse for this generation’s kids than the virus itself.
