Barstool Sports owner’s epic rant, “what the F’s going on…we’re not opening the city till we find a cure”


Dave Portnoy, the owner of Barstool Sports, posted a video to social media in which he slams the state and local governments for continuing or extending coronavirus lockdown orders. He wants to know when we went from “flattening the curve” to “finding a cure” in order to open the economy.

“What the f*** is going on?” Portnoy asked in opening the video. “When did this become, ‘flatten the curve’, ‘flatten the curve’, ‘flatten the curve’, to we have to find a cure or everyone is gonna die?”

“Like, [Dr. Anthony] Fauci, seems like a nice enough dude, I was always like, this guy has no agenda …  [He] gets in front of the Senate, he’s like, we’re reopening the country too fast everyone’s dead. Where’d that come from?” Portnoy continued. “And the L.A. mayor [Eric Garcetti] we’re not opening the city until we find a cure? What? Find a cure? Who says we’re gonna find a cure? We haven’t had a cure to cancer, it took AIDS 20 years or whatever, do we even have a cure? So, the economy is just shut down?”

All we ever heard, for forever, was, ‘flatten the curve,’ ‘flatten the curve,’ ‘make sure there’s hospital beds.’ We’re there! Now all of a sudden, it’s like a 180. That’s like taking a cross-country flight, six hours. Five hours and a half go by, they get on the intercom and they’re like, ‘oh, just kidding, we have another ten hours’. You can’t do that! People have been mentally preparing, we’re doing what you ask. We’ve done exactly like you said, now you’re changing the rules.

While he uses graphic language, he makes some great points:



  1. When Dr. Fraudsi makes enough money off of the vaccine patent then it will open.
    Look up the World Economic Forum to find out what is coming next.

  2. I guess the only thing we can say is the media has done a damn good job of propaganda with their hysteria over this epidemic. Nearly every state has numbers of Covid deaths that are less than influenza related. For the life of me I am unable to understand the dichotomy that separates large chain stores from the small corner store, or the many other wild restrictions.

  3. The bigger question is, WHY did it change from “flatten the curve” to these other lame excuses? Make these petty tyrant governors and mayors explain themselves. Make them answer the “why” and the “when”, and then make them answer the “why” FOR the “when”.

    And don’t let them get off by saying, “We’re following the science.” What science, you dingbats? Explain yourselves!

    Make Fauci answer the question, “When don’t you ever factor the economy into any of your answers, you little twit?” Make him also address the many conflicts of interest he has with the Gates Foundation, Big Pharma, the WHO, the Chan Zuckerberg Foundation, etc., etc. We deserve an answer.

    Make these little tyrants answer why we shouldn’t be including herd immunity strategies into addressing this virus.

    Make them explain how they justify telling any of us how to live our lives when doing so is clearly unconstitutional. Dictatorships are not allowed in America! Why are we letting them get away with it? Demand that they explain themselves legally and constitutionally. Challenge them by refusing to comply when you know you’re right and that they are wrong.

    We need to start ignoring these idiots and open our businesses, go back to work and get back to enjoying our freedom when not at work.

    • Fauci Has spoken about “herd immunity”,, in the context of a vaccine, and has also said we don’t want “natural” herd immunity. In the past every attempt in the type of vaccine they are pursuing was a disaster. Fauci has yet to comment if there is NO vaccine. Then What. Uh, I don’t know.

  4. Let me see if I got this right. First, we don’t need facemasks, if you are healthy you have nothing to worry about. Just practice good hygiene. Then it was damn, we are all going to die, we need to flatten the curve and stay home as not to over run our healthcare system. We did that and hospitals were not over run with patients. Matter of fact, they made anywhere from 15 to 30K on Covid patients. About 40% of the Covid deaths come from nursing home and long term care facilities and when they are subtracted from the total, this virus is much less than deadly than the common flu. Then we were told that HCQ, plus a zpack and zinc wasn’t worth a damn in treating Covid but now we see that it is when administered early and what happens? It can only be used if you are in a hospital setting. Your doctor can’t prescribe one of the safest drugs that has been on the market since the 50’s. Now we are supposed to use some new drug that Gilead had engineered for Ebola that didn’t work. The cost per treatment is about 1,000 dollars a treatment. HCQ is about 30 dollars a treatment. Follow the money. And lastly the bureaucrats get to determine what is an essential business and what isn’t. I call BS on the whole thing, and yet the MSM and dimocrats are leading the charge. We have spent trillions on this program and that program that our great, great grandkids will never be able to pay off. The death of this country is inevitable. For what a freeking virus.

  5. Dave, we do have a choice because these Governors, Mayors and the like DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO TRAMPLE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. US Code 18, Section 242 “Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law” The Constitution is not meant to Limit Citizens Rights, but TO PROTECT OUR RIGHTS AND LIMIT GOVERNMENTAL POWER! They want to deliberately crash our economy to weaken Trump and get their “Yes Man/Woman” into Office!
