On Wednesday, July 7, Anthony Fauci appeared on MSNBC and made yet another one of the astonishingly tone-deaf statements for which he is becoming increasingly known.
Earlier, he had the gall to say that anyone who was criticizing him was criticizing science. Now, he’s demanding that unvaccinated Americans “get over this political statement.”
Fauci Gets Political…Again
While he was on “All in With Chris Hayes” on Wednesday, Fauci had the following to say about Americans who have chosen to remain unvaccinated: “This is not complicated. We’re not asking anybody to make a political statement one way or another. We’re saying, ‘Try to save your life, and that of your family, and that of your community.’”
“It’s very frustrating….Here we have a vaccine that’s highly, highly effective in preventing disease and certainly in preventing severe disease and hospitalization. It’s easy to get, it’s free and it’s readily available, so you’ve got to ask, what is the problem? Get over it. Get over this political statement and try to save the lives of yourself and your family.”
The irony of this sentiment appeared to be totally lost on Fauci.
After all, Fauci is the one who has spent the last year and a half changing his allegedly “scientific” prescriptions to match with the blowing of political winds. Fauci is the one who strenuously denied that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had anything whatsoever to do with the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 and then suddenly decided that the matter should be investigated as soon as political steam began to gather behind such an investigation.
Fauci is the one who dismissed all claims about gain-of-function research being done on coronaviruses in Wuhan as a baseless conspiracy theory and then later tried to weasel in the suggestion that such research might have been done after all. Not only that, but clips of Fauci from years ago prove that he was a vigorous proponent of gain-of-function research.
Fauci is the one who contradicted himself on mask-wearing and said one thing about it in public while admitting in his private emails that it was ineffective. He is the one who, for blatantly political reasons, essentially goes on pretending that natural immunity doesn’t exist.
For Anthony Fauci — possibly the single biggest political hack in the entire U.S. government — to dare to suggest to anyone that they should “get over” making a political statement displays a level of mendacity, disingenuousness, arrogance and outright sleaziness that is simply astonishing.
It’s Fauci who should get over himself.
