As I mentioned in my latest VIP column, one of the few things that gets my dander up is thinking about how COVID minted so many petty tyrants overnight. Without a doubt, the most annoying tyrant on that list of mediocrities is the bureaucrat masquerading as a physician, Anthony Fauci.
I thought the guy was skeevy the first time I saw him on television. I couldn’t figure out why President Trump trusted Fauci but then, things were rather chaotic back then.
Despite having all the world find out that Fauci was wrong about so many things, the man’s arrogance hasn’t diminished one bit. I don’t know that there’s any way to take his ego down a peg, but I would like to see him continue to be exposed as being the tool that he his.
We had a couple of stories yesterday that were fresh reminders of just how awful he is.
Despite a lawsuit filed in May, Anthony Fauci has been reluctant to cough up records he has concerning the U.S. government and Big Tech allegedly conniving to censor social media users who spoke out against the official COVID narrative. So a judge gave wee Fauci a little pat on the back to help him spit them out.
U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty, a Trump appointee, issued an order to a number of White House officials, including Fauci, Jen Psaki, Karine Jean-Pierre, and the “Big Guy” himself, Gropey Joe Biden. They have been ordered to produce any and all communications regarding Big Tech and government officials colluding to silence those who dared to deny “the science” on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
There you go, Fauci thinks he’s above the law.
The law, and hopefully a new Republican Congress, will one day make him think otherwise.
Matt writes that Fauci and Mark Zuckerberg became phone buddies just before Facebook got all Soviet with the COVID “misinformation” censorship, which many of us here experienced firsthand. The fact that those two yahoos were the arbiters of what was and was not “misinformation” remains one of the more absurd aspects of the COVID nightmare.
Matt summarizes some of that clown show near the end of his post:
Zuckerberg and Fauci colluding to decide what constitutes misinformation is ironic considering that Fauci himself spread misinformation throughout the pandemic. Some of his better-known whoppers were pushing universal masking despite knowing that they were not effective protection from COVID and claiming lockdowns saved lives despite a plethora of studies proving the contrary. Fauci also claimed that the COVID vaccines would prevent infection and spread of the disease — which was not true.
All of this information reaffirms what many of us have been saying since 2020: it was never about a concern for public health with Fauci, it was always about finding ways to use his position to exert control over that public. Maintaining the moronic leftist cult of personality that grew around Fauci quickly became his primary motivation for everything. He really didn’t give a damn if anyone died. As long as politicians were dancing for him and keeping the common folk under their thumbs, Fauci didn’t care if there was a body count or not.
Like I said in the headline, not a good guy.
