By now, many parts of the United States have returned mostly back to normal. Except for a few meaningless mask requirements, large portions of the country have reopened their schools, businesses, and other large venues. It seems that most Americans are done cowering in their homes, afraid of the China virus.
But if you were to consult the media (a very dumb thing to do), you’d think it was still April of 2020, when uncertainty and unchecked fear ruled the day. The left continues to push unfounded fears about COVID. And so-called “experts,” like attention-loving Anthony Fauci, keep claiming we need to stay locked down essentially forever.
Fauci has destroyed his credibility time and time again. He has been wrong in most of his predictions and decisions. He opposed the rapid development of the vaccines (though now, he’s trying to take credit for them). He even admitted to lying about masks early on, to prevent Americans from buying all of them. That alone should have discredited him entirely.
Even now, the media props up Fauci like a false prophet, demanding we obey his whims. The man is even less reliable, when you realize his organization has been under investigation for a long time because of donations from China.
Now, Republican congressman Jim Jordan is taking this physician to task.
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Thursday slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci for failing to provide a timeline for life to resume as normal. Dr. Fauci has said Americans need to continue with COVID precautions, including mask-wearing, social distancing, and large gatherings…
“Dr. Fauci, when is the time? When do Americans get their freedom back?” …
“We had ’15 days to slow the spread’ turned into one year of lost liberty,” Jordan fired back. “What metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get more freedoms?” [Source: Daily Wire]
We already know the answer to Jim’s questions. There is no timeline. There are no metrics. And Fauci and the ruling elite have no plan to “give back” Americans their freedoms.
Here’s the big secret: COVID was no excuse for the government to even consider robbing Americans of their freedoms. No disease or crisis offers a good enough reason to tear the Bill of Rights to shreds. But Fauci is not at all concerned with our rights or the Constitution. He is getting far too much attention and money to be bothered with all that.
The irony is all that “social distancing,” lockdowns, and mask-wearing did not slow anything. There is no hard evidence to suggest anything that Fauci recommended actually worked. The only things that seem to have improved the situation was herd immunity, the vaccinations…
And, of course, Americans deciding they were done living in fear.
A man like Fauci? He’s been all but useless.
