Claims that anyone who questions what he says is being “painfully ridiculous”

As the scrutiny of Dr Fauci continues to increase following the release of his emails, it’s clear he’s feeling the strain. He declared, yet again, Wednesday that anyone attacking him should be seen as attacking science itself.

Fauci made the comments in part in response to Republicans in the House demanding he explain comments previously made that contradict sworn testimony that he gave to Congress.

During another softball interview on MSNBC, Fauci repeated his claim to being the supreme authority on the pandemic, suggesting that anyone who questions what he says is being “painfully ridiculous”.

“If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking, not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science,” Fauci proclaimed, referring to himself in the third person.

Watch:

Fauci continued “Anybody that looks at what’s going on, clearly sees that. You have to be asleep not to see that. That is what’s going on. Science and the truth are being attacked.”

Many would argue that science and truth were attacked at the beginning of the pandemic when Fauci dismissed out of hand the notion of coronavirus leaking from the Wuhan Institute of Virology when leading virologists were telling him that the thing looked like it was engineered.

“It’s very dangerous, Chuck, because a lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me quite frankly are attacks on science because all of the things that I have spoken about consistently from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science.”

Science and truth was attacked when Fauci’s pal Peter Daszak, the Wuhan gain of function funder, the guy Fauci routed the money through, orchestrated a ‘bullying’ campaign and coerced top scientists into signing off on a letter to The Lancet aimed at removing blame for Covid-19 from the Wuhan lab he was funding with taxpayer dollars.

Fauci is repeating this ‘I am science’ talking point all over the place. Last week, again on MSNBC, he said basically the same thing.

A real scientist would point out that one should always beware anyone who says ‘the science is settled’ or criticises others for questioning science. That’s what science is, a series of questioning hypotheses.

And given Fauci’s record for flip flopping on what is and isn’t scientifically sound during this pandemic, and his shady involvement with funding the dangerous research in a lab where the virus magically appeared, he in particular should be the first to be questioned.
