Trust the science.
The term has reached another level of irony, as the hashtag
#FireFauci trended last week on Twitter, of all places. It seems even that social platform is finally waking up about the “indispensable man” who advocated American and world-wide pandemic policies that have since proved catastrophic.
The policies of Dr. Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which works closely with the CDC and WHO, have been built on lie after lie. When it comes to that assertion, no need to “trust” the facts. Just consider them, as Fox News did in a recent article.
- March 2020: Fauci told Americans, “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”
- March 2020: Fauci warned in a 60 Minutes interview about the ineffectiveness of masks: “People keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”
- Fauci later claimed he only said not to wear a mask to reserve them early in the pandemic for healthcare workers on the front lines.
- July 2020: Fauci was caught on video not properly wearing a mask during the Washington Nationals opening baseball game.
- February 2021: Fauci now advocates wearing not one mask but two, saying, “If you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective.”
On “Slowing The Spread”:
Fauci, along with others, originally touted a brief emergency shutdown of the nation entitled “15 Days to Slow the Spread.” After 15 days became 30, Fauci further evolved to advocate what has become ongoing, endless lockdowns.
Fauci originally said, “herd immunity” (i.e., an effective drop in virus infections to near zero) would be achieved when 70 percent of the population receives vaccines.
Later, talking to The New York Times, Fauci changed his tune, saying “When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75%. Then, when newer surveys said 60% or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.”
February 2021: After months of touting vaccines as a way back to normalcy, Fauci vacillated on CNN about whether the jab would confer enough safety to even gather with family. He said, “I don’t want to be making a recommendation now on public TV. I would want to sit down with the team, take a look at that.”
RedState contributor Jennifer Oliver O’Connell said Fauci deserves every bit of rising scrutiny and outrage directed at him. “Masks, herd immunity, lockdowns, Fauci has been inconsistent, incorrect, or has flat out lied.”
And even beyond the doctor’s many public lies remains the murky story of his authorizing funding to the Wuhan China level 4 Bio-lab, which was working on coronavirus “gain of function” research at the time COVID-19 appeared in that same location. In the case of Dr. Anthony Fauci, it would appear more and more people are deciding not to “trust the scientist.”
