After all the times his public positions have abruptly shifted, one would think that Dr. Anthony Fauci, who became remarkably rich during the COVID pandemic, might try to evade the spotlight.
Fauci’s rather brazen collusion with Beijing, achieved through his constant public opposition to Trump alone,
Alas, Fauci just can’t seem to get enough airtime of his own visage, and, at a certain point, it appears that he is directly gunning for headlines.
Just consider the number of absurd remarks he made during a recent appearance on “Face the Nation,” on CBS News.
In dialogue with CBS’s Margaret Brennan, Fauci made a number of eyebrow-raising statements, including his insistence that he is not political.
“I’m not political at all, period,” Fauci insisted.
Tell that to Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, both of whom followed the science over the politics.
Fauci definitely appeared to have a certain allegiance to the Democrats, whether or not he admits it, as he certainly played right into their lockdown-happy hands.
Then again, perhaps Fauci claims he isn’t “political” due to his long-term commitment to globalism, as he spent much of his CBS appearance bizarrely defending Beijing.
“Even when there’s nothing to hide they act in a suspicious, non-transparent way just probably because they don’t want to make it look like there’s a blame,” Fauci asserted in reference to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
However, Brennan referenced a recent opinion piece in the Washington Post, which referred to China’s coverup of the virus’s origins.
It can take the Washington Post quite some time, but at least the media publication periodically asks questions that globalists won’t.
Even if it takes two years to do so.
Better two years later than never, however, which is why Brennan pressed Fauci on the news outlet’s remarks.
“Do you agree with that word cover-up? And intentional distortion?” Brennan retorted.
Astonishingly, the first several words of Fauci’s response appear utterly nonsensical.
“I don’t know what that means,” Fauci huffed, “I’m not sure what they’re talking about. I mean, if cover-up is not allowing people to come in and look at all the data, that’s not a cover, that’s not being transparent.”
Fauci doesn’t know what the word “cover-up” means? Seriously? Does he expect anyone to believe that?
What a way to defend Beijing, especially amid the increasingly hostile rebellion growing abroad. Against the very authoritarianism Fauci effectively espouses, via lockdowns.
“They can say, oh, you know, it’s in frozen food, or it’s in this or it’s in that. But there’s no primary data. The [WHO] went in and saw some of the data, which some of which was actually quite helpful. But we … need a transparency and a collaboration to open things up so that we can discuss it in a non-accusatory way,” Fauci argued.
Well, Americans certainly need transparency from Fauci, that’s for sure. Especially with regards to his fixation on Beijing.
And, rather unsurprisingly, Fauci found the time to bash Trump, which was all the more absurd considering his defense of Beijing.
“What happens is that if you look at the anti-China approach, that clearly the Trump administration had right from the very beginning, and the accusatory nature, the Chinese are going to flinch back and say, ‘Oh, I’m sorry, we’re not going to talk to you about it,’ which is not correct. They should be,” Fauci declared.
Right. Way to continue siding with Beijing, even if it means bashing a former president to do so.
In many ways, however, Fauci’s defense of Beijing is logical, especially since the pandemic effectively made his position relevant and his name internationally famous.
Fauci has served in his position since 1984, which is ironic in more ways than one, especially given his full-scale approval of rampant government surveillance for “public health” purposes.
