Fauci Loses It Big Time, Rants Attacking Him Is 'Attacking Science'

Is Dr. Anthony Fauci still doing his regular job, you know that one for which he gets paid so much?

Because it certainly seems that he spends an awful lot of time doing media appearances, especially since the revelations in his emails hit, he’s been all about hitting every show defending himself.

He was at it again on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd, blasting attacks on him as “attacking science.”

“It’s very dangerous, Chuck, because a lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me quite frankly are attacks on science because all of the things that I have spoken about consistently from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science….If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science. And anybody that looks at what’s going on, clearly sees that. You have to be asleep not to see that. That is what’s going on. Science and the truth are being attacked.”

On Friday, he made a similar claim on the Rachel Maddow show that attacks on him were attacks on science.

What hubris and how imperious was that? He Who Shall Not Be Questioned has spoken. You shall brook no dissent but simply obey without question. Saint Fauci has spoken. He is the Science.

Um, Doctor? Scientists who care about truth and science are all in for questioning science, that’s how you are able to prove your theories. That’s what science is about. If you say the “science is settled” or that you should not be questioned, you’re really not much of a scientist. If you have an issue with being questioned, maybe the issue is that you can’t support your flip-flops?

For example, in March of last year, he told people it wasn’t necessary for them to wear masks. He claimed he said that because he was trying to preserve PPE for the medical community.

So that wasn’t the science or the truth, but a political game that he later tried to justify, according to his own words.

When an email came out showing that he also said essentially the same thing to a colleague privately, he said that when data changes, you change your position. So which is it? He couldn’t seem to keep the story straight.

Bottom line? There are a ton of questions that deserve answers here, particularly on gain-of-function research and funding to the Wuhan lab. Everyone has a right to get the truth on and unfortunately, we can’t count on Fauci to give it to us.
