It has been more than two years since he entered the spotlight, but Anthony Fauci isn’t quite ready for his COVID power trip to come to an end.
Like a broken record, the media’s favorite 81-year-old pandemic soothsayer is warning Americans to prepare for more restrictions in the near future, the Daily Wire reported.
Fauci tells Americans to prepare for more lockdowns
With even many Democratic politicians dropping mandates as the public mood shifts, Fauci told BBC’s Sunday Morning that Americans must continue to be vigilant about the virus.
The megalomaniac said that he doesn’t like the term “lockdowns” because it has “a charged element to it” — gee, how did lockdowns get to be so divisive, Fauci? — but “we must keep our eye on the pattern of what we’re seeing with infections.”
Now, two years after the first lockdowns, Americans must “be prepared” to submit to “more rigid restrictions” if a more severe variant of COVID emerges, Fauci said.
“Having said that, we need to be prepared for the possibility that we would have another variant that would come along,” Fauci said.
“And then, if things change and we do get a variant that does give us an uptick in cases and hospitalization, we should be prepared and flexible enough to pivot toward going back – at least temporarily – to a more rigid type of restrictions, such as requiring masks indoor.”
Fauci whitewashes his crimes
Fauci’s statements come as Democrats have been easing vaccine and mask mandates in an effort to tamp down on COVID hysteria ahead of the midterms, with even President Biden declaring that the virus no longer “controls” Americans.
However, it looks like Fauci’s ego is stronger even than his partisan loyalty to Democrats. Remarkable. In the meantime, the petty tyrant is seeking to whitewash his culpability in the past two years of government overreach and abuse — claiming America will never know whether lockdowns were “worth it.”
The aging bureaucrat claimed to the BBC that lockdowns saved many lives, although a recent Johns Hopkins study found they failed to reduce mortality while driving up youth suicide attempts, drug overdoses, and other societal ills.
“I think the restrictions — if you want to use that word, which I tend to shy away from, lockdown — they certainly prevented a lot of infections, prevented a lot of hospitalizations, and prevented a lot of deaths. There’s no doubt about that,” Fauci said.
If America were still a “democracy,” Fauci would be marched in front of a war crimes tribunal — not filling the airwaves with his unsolicited opinions.
