It’s been one of the swiftest and most jarring transitions in history.
In the space of two weeks, we’ve gone from full lockdown mode to thousands, perhaps millions in the streets. Just days ago, public health officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, were warning against groups of more than 10, and leftist Twitter trolls were attacking small business owners thinking of reopening their barbershops and restaurants.
Now, those same people are condoning this:

When a few conservatives protested dictatorial lockdown measures, Fauci was there to express consternation. Where is he now?
Conservative writer John Nolte takes Fauci and the entire public health complex to task for this blatant hypocrisy. He writes:
Is Fauci a fraud or liar?
Was all his talk about concern for public health, his duty to tell it like it is no matter the personal or political fallout, just a big lie? Is he a fraud who still believes these mass gatherings are a nightmare scenario, but is unwilling to use his massive public platform to say so out loud because shaming protesters who hold the “approved” views among America’s hideous elite would risk Fauci feeling the disapproval of those elites?
Or is he a liar, does he in fact know the coronavirus is nowhere near as deadly as he played it up to be? Is he a liar who mislead us into agreeing to destroy our amazing economy in order to undermine the Bad Orange Man’s re-election?
Fauci used to have bipartisan support as a blunt, truth-telling scientist with no agenda. No more. It’s truly tragic.
Now the question is – who can Americans trust to tell them the truth?
