Oh, The Irony: Fauci is Worried About the Country Because of Disinformation

Like a stain that keeps reappearing after you thought you had scrubbed it clean, Former White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci just won’t go away. 

He’s back, if anyone cares, and he’s sharing his biggest fear for the country: disinformation. 

“I worry about the country a lot because what we’re seeing — and I think anybody who just takes a deep breath and looks at what’s going on — that we are in an arena, an era, of what I call the normalization of untruths,” Fauci said. 

To be fair, if anyone knows about “normalizing untruths,” it’s Fauci. 

From the efficacy of vaccines to the origins of the COVID-19 virus and the usefulness of masking, Fauci has made a career of disinformation.  

It all started in 2020 with a truth and a lie about masking. Fauci initially claimed that masking would provide no protection from the virus, stating, “There is no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better, and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.”  

Almost immediately, the good doctor reversed course to fully support mask mandates. He later went on to defend his lie (which was the truth) about masks by claiming it was a white lie of sorts aimed at preventing a public run on masks. Which, it should be pointed out, was necessary to support his “truth,” the lie about mask efficacy. 

Confused yet? There’s more. 

Fauci ruined countless lives and livelihoods by his insistence that vaccines were effective, first in preventing the disease and then by minimizing the risk of transmission. We now know as he knew all the time, that both claims were untrue. The vaccine’s only benefit was its ability to create a bizarro world that pitted the vaccinated against the unvaccinated. The ramifications of being forced to take an untested vaccine have yet to be fully discovered, although evidence is mounting that being vaccinated is causing side-affects, up to and including death, in healthy individuals.  

Fauci shifted the narrative to keep pace with a rapidly evolving public understanding; the vaccine did not prevent infection, nor did it prevent transmission. Instead, the vaccine allegedly limited the severity of the illness when exposed to it, which is not the level of immunity the vaccinated were looking for.  

And speaking of immunity, Fauci repeatedly pushed back against natural immunity, claiming the vaccines were more effective. He single-handedly created a landscape of confusion and mistrust that the public is only now unraveling, and only those with interests in big pharma reaped the benefits of the vaccine. 

According to Fauci, 60% to 70% vaccination rates would establish herd immunity. When that goal was reached, he bumped it up to 70% to 75% and then to 75%, 80%, and 85%.  He justified this shift by pointing out, “Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.”  

Fauci also censored scientists and health professionals who offered differing views on vaccinations, treatments, and masking. Some of the treatments he disavowed were effective in clinical settings but not as lucrative for big pharma. These lies led to countless deaths that could have been prevented after mainstream treatments failed. 

Fauci also lied, presumably to cover up his own involvement, on the origins of COVID-19 and gain-of-function research originating in the Wuhan labs. Numerous emails were uncovered that revealed he not only knew where the virus originated but also sent taxpayer money through the EcoHealth Alliance to fund the research. These facts were confirmed in a 2021 letter from NIH’s Lawrence A. Tabak to House Oversight Committee ranking member James Comer (R-KY).  

As the good doctor continues a slow fade into irrelevancy, the next generation of liars is being prepped. “One of the most important things that I feel I’d like to do is to serve as an inspiration or a model for younger people who want to get involved in science and public service or those who are already involved, to give them an idea of the kinds of things that can be accomplished.” 

Apparently, those accomplishments include exerting authority one doesn’t have, censorship, evasion tactics, and outright lies.  

Fauci once attempted to silence his opposition by stating, “I am the science.”   

Perhaps a more fitting phrase would be, “I am the disinformation.”
