Dr. Anthony Fauci is the newest face of the tyrannical Left.
But with the Coronavirus pandemic finally coming to an end, many are hoping Fauci will finally lose his power.
But now, he just sparked a firestorm no one saw coming thanks to seven outrageous words.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has been perhaps the most prominent government scientist of the past 15 months.
Catapulted to the front of the national spotlight at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in February 2020, Fauci has since gone on to dive head-first into the country’s politics, inserting himself into not only debates over what the appropriate government response should be to the pandemic, but into basic political questions as well.
But rather than serving as a national expert the country can rally around, Fauci has since become little more than a folk hero for Democrats, and has blatantly thrown his influence around in a way to benefit the political left.
The result has been predictable. Fauci is now widely viewed with distain by many Republicans, including Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who has taken Fauci to task on more than one occasion due to his “theatrics” of wearing two masks even after being vaccinated, and dragging his feet perhaps more than anyone else when it came to the question of how to safely re-open the American economy.
The clashes between the two political figures have become a legendary fight in Washington.
But now, Fauci is ramping things up to 11 with a new outrageous claim that has conservatives howling political bias.
Mediaite reports, “In what became a fiery rant on MSNBC’s MTP: Daily Wednesday, Fauci — speaking with host Chuck Todd — blasted those attacking him on a variety of subjects ranging from his mask advocacy to the question of whether the National Institute of Health (NIH) funded gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Fauci took the opportunity on MSNBC to not only promote himself and downplay his critics, but to elevate himself to the point that any criticism of him amounted to criticism of science itself.
“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. Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people, and there was pushback against me.” Fauci said during an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.
“So if you are trying to get at me as a public health official and scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science. And anybody that looks at what is going on clearly sees that. You have to be asleep not to see that.” Fauci concluded.
Fauci’s comments were directed not at Senator Paul, but rather Senator Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee, who recently the theory that Fauci had been in touch with social media sites like Facebook to promote his narrative about COVID-19.
“Dr. Fauci was emailing with Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook, trying to create that narrative,” Blackburn said. “Cherrypicking information so that you would only know what they wanted you to know, and there would be a narrative that would fit with this cherrypicked information.”
