Dr. Anthony Fauci was among the public health officials called before Congress to testify on the Fiscal Year 2023 budget request for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Rep. Cline grilled him about his recommendations during the pandemic and the NIAID Chef actually claimed there weren’t any lockdowns.
Well, if you have no other quivers in your bow, you might as well pretend there were no lockdowns.
Fauci was questioned about The Great Barrington Declaration, which Dr. Collins called the work of “fringe” scientists. Fauci likened their declaration to “AIDS denialism.” They silenced the scientists of the Declaration.
The Great Barrington Declaration by prominent scientists said that focusing on the target populations would spare the healthy people who are unlikely to become a target of the disease
Fauci said that they were suggesting letting the virus run free.
“Well, the issue with the Barrington declaration is that what they were stating is that if you let the virus run free in society and only so-called protect the vulnerable,” he remarked. “And the question is who are the vulnerable in society that you are going to protect? …most public health officials totally disagree with the Barrington declaration.”
“And in fact, if you did that, let it just run free and not try to protect the population in general, we almost certainly would’ve had many more infections, many more hospitalizations, and many more deaths,” he said. “Okay. So with all due respect to the scientist who signed a declaration, I completely disagree with them.”
Fauci admitted that among young people, there has been an increase in depression, suicides, drug and alcohol use, and domestic violence.
THERE WERE NO LOCKDOWNS?
He talked about balance but studies now show lockdowns weren’t worth it.
“I’m not sure what that has to do with the question you’re asking,” Fauci said, adding that he’s not sure the lockdowns themselves did it. “There were not complete lockdowns in this country…there were no lockdowns. China is now going into a complete lockdown.”
He’s even denying there were lockdowns. People were forced or terrified into staying in their homes. Surgeries were canceled, doctors refused to see patients, and so much more. Those aren’t lockdowns?
Fauci’s recommendations and terror-filled warnings seriously damaged the country politically and financially. He forced corporations to act as the federal government’s stooges. State governments also fell in line.
Johns Hopkin’s study indicated we must never have lockdowns again.
Eminent scientists and other prominent medical professionals – 60 of them – signed The Great Barrington Declaration.
Fauci and his allies in the Democrat Party and in the media would not allow any debate. Now he claims there were no lockdowns because they weren’t as extreme as China’s.
every time his lips move………..! I think you coulden’t trust him in an outhouse with a muzzle on
If anyone is listening to this total communist, marxist a hole your a total idiot and deserve everything you get.
Stay home for two weeks to smooth the curve. That came from Fauci. Two weeks turned to two years for many Americans.
just when you think Tony can’t make a bigger lie, he floats this turd
Public Health Officials disagree on The Great Barrington Declaration because it basically says that Public Health Officials can do nothing to stop a Viral Pandemic. Since that has once again proven itself to be true, we really don’t need Public Health Officials. The Media can inform us that there is a Pandemic without Public Health Officials screwing everything up. It becomes obvious when large numbers of people are getting sick. Public Health Officials have a single focus mind set and think they are smarter than everyone else; including Mother Nature. Public Health Officials don’t take into account the fallout of their decisions on society overall. Public Health Officials only have one size fits none answers to the very complicated issue of desease that is constantly changing and vastly difference in different locations. A solution for a NYC population density of 60,000 per square mile is not a solution for Rural America, who are significantly more self sufficient, and have a population density of less than 60 people per square mile.
Think about how rediculous a large area lockdown is. Consider that now I’m retired to a Certified Retirement Community Area in Mississippi with pretty much everything a Mega City has to offer. Why would I need to lock down in my home? I’m in the position to totally quarantine myself for 6 months or more on my land with no physical contact to the outside world. I even have a Level III Positive Pressure Hood in case I have to venture out into the virus infected world. People in Big Blue Cities don’t have the options I have and due to the design of the Big Blue City never would. A mandated lockdown in my community is foolish and unwarranted. We have many acres of land to live and work on with our own food supplies, stockpiles of fuel, wood burning stoves, water supplies and in some cases solar panel farms for electricity. Where I’m at, there are more cows than people per square mile. We aren’t going to go hungry. My condo In South Florida cost more than my mini-ranch here. City Living is expensive and I just don’t see the return on investment! High Population density is dangerous and makes people crazy! We should abandon the Big Blue City model for Small Towns (max 2500 per square mile density) with more separation of towns (no less than 5 miles of rural area in between) and promote more community spirit. I now find Cities of more than 20,000 people to have too much crime and are a bit trying with too much traffic. I’ll take a place with a Piggy Wiggly over a Walmart Super Store anyday, but the Government tried to shutdown the Mom and Pop Stores; WHY?
The Covid Hoax had very little to do with sound medicine or Public Health!
