But here we are, and the bureaucratic COVID tyranny rages on.
Dr. Fauci, our number one public health Stalinist, has shifted the goalposts yet again. The official guidance — from the same lab-coat tyrants at the NIAID and CDC who’ve helped bring you “stand here” footprints in elevators and “mask up between bites” guidance for restaurants — is that you must act like an unvaccinated person even after you’ve been vaccinated or recovered naturally from the disease.
This is neither rational nor acceptable. They say it’s for safety, but mostly it’s for control.
As always, Fauci and his fan club of lockdown enthusiasts claim this is about “the science.” But that’s just propaganda. We aren’t talking about the temperature at which water boils or the products of photosynthesis.
Fauci, the CDC, and their ilk are making enormously consequential policy decisions based on the excuse of objective scientific truth. What they are effectively arguing for is the right to determine — without any meaningful public debate — when it’s “safe” for people to start living their lives normally again.
Is it reasonable to expect people — who by the CDC’s own statistics have a better than 99% chance of surviving a COVID infection, and on top of that have received a 95% effective vaccination — to refrain from living their lives? Are they really supposed to avoid their relatives for another three months, maybe six: who knows, it could even be another year?
The officials and talking heads who push this madness rarely subject themselves to meaningful debates on any of it. There’s just a committee of advisors or experts who gather behind closed doors at public health agencies, and then their pronouncements are treated as gospel by the lockdowners and mask maniacs.
Elected officials (mostly Democrats) then enforce the dictates as though it’s out of their hands. It all feels very Soviet.
One notable exception to this unaccountable power grab came last week up on Capitol Hill. Dr. Fauci appeared before a congressional committee to discuss the issue of mask-wearing after vaccination. Some of his exchange with Sen. Rand Paul, who is also an M.D. and has been one of the few true critics of Fauciism, went directly to the absurdity of the “mask up after vaccination” claims:
Sen. Paul: Dr. Fauci, in a recent British study, David Wiley and others found that no symptomatic reinfections from COVID-19 after following 2,800 patients for several months. In fact, there’ve been no reports of significant numbers of reinfections after acquiring COVID-19 naturally.
Given that no scientific studies have shown significant numbers of reinfections of patients previously infected or previously vaccinated, what specific studies do you cite to argue that the public should be wearing masks well into 2022?
Dr. Fauci: I’m not sure I understand the connection of what you’re saying about masks and reinfection. We’re talking about people who have never been infected before.
Sen. Paul: You’re telling everybody to wear a mask, whether they’ve had an infection or a vaccine. What I’m saying is they have immunity and everybody agrees they have immunity. What studies do you have that people that have had the vaccine or have had the infection are spreading the infection? If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater?
Dr. Fauci: No, it’s not.
Sen. Paul: If you’ve had a vaccine and you’re wearing two masks, isn’t that theater?
For anyone who’s keeping score, yes, it’s clearly theater. It’s unreasonable to expect people to live their lives in constant fear, frustration, and inconvenience because there’s a theoretical possibility that breathing air normally will spread a virus to someone even after the person breathing has been vaccinated against that possibility.
The people calling the shots on this are delusional. Recently, the CDC gave some crumbs from the table of our basic freedoms, including that you can visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without masks or physical distancing. Are we supposed to be grateful for this?
Does anyone in the CDC actually live in America, or do they just go from their bedrooms to their living rooms for appearances on MSNBC? Most normal Americans across the country have already been spending time with family indoors without masks for many months.
This is the result of mass hysteria, created in large part by the mass media. The Democratic party leveraged this to defeat Trump in 2020, and now they want to keep the madness going as long as they can to squeeze even more political benefit from this health policy autocracy.
As a country, we need to get back to some basic truths. Nothing is perfect, there’s no absolute safety. And if the government can take away any of your rights “for your own good,” then you don’t have any rights.
Don’t mistake this missive as an attack on the highest-paid U.S. federal employee. And it’s not to attack an eighty-year-old man. It just happens that Dr. Fauci is eighty. And I’m NOT attacking him or any other.
This is merely a statement highlighting the continual chaos all Americans are subjected to — and have been daily for more than a year now thanks to Dr. Fauci. Is it not odd to you that Dr. Fauci has changed positions on each of his numerous edicts regarding COVID that he initially sworn to us was Biblical? And then he summarily — and sometimes jokingly — tells us later he gave that whopper when he did because it was “necessary” for him to do so at the time. The sad part is that no real explanation was necessary. The sheeple just quietly acquiesced.
Does that make sense to you? Let me get this straight: a mysterious and secret virus, that can destroy every human on Earth, strikes the U.S. The number one expert on the planet about all-things-virus was naturally the guy called on to save us all. And he trots out “fact” upon “fact” to educate us to the COVID-blight on humanity and to unilaterally lead us to the promised land of anti-COVID to preserve all mankind.
All these “Fauci-isms” are way too much. For this sexagenarian, (that’s a real word describing my age, not my virility or prowess) it’s long past time to drop the elitist know-it-all attitude as the savior of the COVID World. The clock is ticking and it never stops. Far too much of life is zooming by while we exist as little more than fearful statues frozen in place, waiting for his latest breath of salvation from the Devil-virus.
Dr. Fauci and the rest of the lockdown chorus have been a constant reminder of this, alongside their catastrophic policy failure to stop or contain the virus in the first place. Enough is enough, Fauci needs to go.
