Dr. Fauci: Scientist or ‘Political Animal’?

It is possible that in the face of a pandemic that came as a surprise and took the lives of millions of people, most would agree that the right thing to do is to follow the science. The question now remains: what (or who) is the science?

House Republicans revealed evidence that Dr. Fauci was warned about a lab leak as the possible source of the virus and also about the possibility that it had been intentionally and genetically engineered. However, he withheld that information.

The disclosed information also shows that Dr. Collins, former director of the National Institutes of Health, told Fauci and other scientists that continuing to debate the origin of the pandemic could cause harm “to science and international harmony.”

Adding to this, an email exchange between Fauci and Dr. Collins shows that Fauci reportedly conspired to create a “quick and devastating public takedown” of three epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford and Stanford, and label them “fringe epidemiologists” for questioning the effectiveness of quarantines. This is just a brief summary of the latest lies we are told by the man whom millions obey with blind faith, because politicians, media and intellectuals have presented him as the incarnation of science.

What other lies has he told us? How many people could have been saved if we had had all the information in time? How many of the measures he has promoted are ineffective and how much damage—especially to the economy—could have been avoided?

“Do you think the lockdowns were good for our kids? Do you think we slowed down the death rate? More people have died now under President Biden than did under President Trump. You are the one responsible,” Senator Rand Paul told Dr. Fauci.

Fauci has been protected and praised by the media. He has been put in a pedestal and presented as the owner of absolute truth. Anyone who dares to contradict him has been branded as “anti-science.”

At this point, I think it is almost obvious that it was a fatal mistake to consider Fauci a scientist, and that Senator Rand Paul’s remark that Fauci is a “political animal” is much more accurate.

We could have prevented so many deaths. Either because the risky experiments in China would have been stopped in time, or because the information that was withheld from us, had it been revealed, would have changed the way we responded from the beginning. But this is not a matter of the past, there are still many fights we have to fight.

Are we going to allow the same people who have lied to us for years to take away the rights of the unvaccinated? Do we want a world where a person who has not had a vaccine cannot work or go to a restaurant? Are we going to turn our faces away and forget everything while these kinds of experiments continue to be done in China?
