Once again, media whore and wannabe celebrity Dr. Anthony Fauci steps outside of science and opines…
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s exact quote from CBS’s “Face the Nation…
MARGARET BRENNAN: But we can gather for Christmas, or it's just too soon to tell.
DR. FAUCI: You know, Margaret, it's just too soon to tell. We've just got to concentrating on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time. <Source>
Another clarification the next day…
Anthony Fauci clarifies Christmas gathering remarks, says he will be spending day with his family
Fauci encouraged people to have a ‘good, normal Christmas’ with their families
Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday sought to clarify remarks he made over the weekend that it was “too soon” for families to consider gathering in person to celebrate Christmas.
Appearing on CNN, Fauci claimed the comments he made on CBS’s “Face the Nation” were “taken completely out of context,” and that he never intended to convey that people couldn’t spend Christmas with their families.
“It is just too soon to tell,” Fauci told CBS anchor Margaret Brennan on Sunday when she asked if people could gather. “We have to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we’re going to do at a particular time.”
Fauci, who was heavily criticized for the remarks, told CNN’s Kate Bolduan that people, especially those who are vaccinated against the coronavirus, could plan to have a “good, normal Christmas” with their families.
“I also said something over the weekend that was taken completely out of context. I was asked what could we predict for this winter, for like December and Christmas,” Fauci said. “I said we don’t know because we’ve seen slopes that went down and then came back up.”
He stated that the best way to ensure the country would be in good shape going into the winter would be for more people to get vaccinated, and that it was “absolutely not the case” that people couldn’t spend Christmas with their families.
“I will be spending Christmas with my family. I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people, who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family,”
Fauci said. “The way all of the other disinformation goes around, you say something talking about a landmark of a time, and it gets misinterpreted that I’m saying you can’t spend family Christmas time, which is nonsense. You can.” <Source>
It isn’t the first time. Wall Street Journal calls out Fauci for his “alarmism” and subsequent “flip-flop” on the dangers of AIDS in the 80s…
When AIDS spread among gay men and intravenous drug users four decades ago, it became conventional wisdom that the plague would soon devastate the rest of the American population. In 1987, Oprah Winfrey opened her show by announcing, “Research studies now project that 1 in 5—listen to me, hard to believe—1 in 5 heterosexuals could be dead of AIDS in the next three years.” The prediction was outlandishly wrong, but she wasn’t wrong in attributing the scare to scientists.
One early alarmist was Anthony Fauci, who made national news in 1983 with an editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Association warning that AIDS could infect even children because of “the possibility that routine close contact, as within a family household, can spread the disease.” After criticism that he had inspired a wave of hysterical homophobia, Dr. Fauci (who in 1984 began his current job, as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), promptly pivoted 180 degrees, declaring less than two months after his piece appeared that it was “absolutely preposterous” to suggest AIDS could be spread by normal social contact. But other supposed experts went on warning erroneously that AIDS could spread widely via toilet seats, mosquito bites, and kissing. <Source>
In August of 2020, I wrote, “Are we being Fauci-ed?”
It appears that the American public has lost faith in our government’s institutions, medical science, and the so-called “experts” who purport to tell the truth. And one of the primary reasons is the media antics of the omnipresent Dr. Anthony Fauci who dissembles and flip-flops as his political masters dictate.
We are so screwed when our “elite experts” become politicized and craft narratives to advance the administration’s agenda rather than serve science that should inform "We the People."
