While most Americans are quite eager to seal up 2021 and bid it adieu, Fauci appear intent on keeping Americans trapped in 2020.
After all, the idea of normal living is apparently so off-putting to the newly fame-hungry Fauci that he just cannot resist raining on absolutely everyone’s parade, no matter how much progress is shown in defeating the ongoing pandemic.
For instance, when Fauci was recently questioned about whether or not Americans could cut loose and finally enjoy themselves over the holidays, the nation’s medical director was quick to not only torpedo holiday celebrations, but also continue ramming vaccines down Americans’ throats.
“I have been telling people consistently that if you’re vaccinated and boosted and you have a family setting, in the home with family and relatives … But when you’re talking about a New Year’s Eve party, we have 30, 40, 50 people celebrating. You do not know the status of their vaccination, I would recommend strongly stay away from that this year.” [Source: Fox News]
Well, that’s interesting, Fauci. Why didn’t the same “30, 40, 50 people” rule apply to Obama’s mega-60th birthday party, which he threw for himself? After all, that event likely not only had “30, 40, 50” wait staff alone, but it also took place during the height of the delta variant’s spread.
Of course, the fictional news media preferred to focus on outdoor biker rallies and other remotely conservative gatherings instead of proving a fair and balanced perspective.
Fauci also continued to bemoan the relative lack of tests, continuing to blame “people getting ready to travel” or otherwise moving on with life, the exact movements that Fauci is attempting to contravene through his anti-normal life stance.
“We had a conflation of high demands because of the concern about omicron, which is a justifiable concern, but the high demand that was triggered by the holiday season, people getting ready to travel getting ready to go and mix with family members and friends.” [Source: Newsmax]
The horror! People actually “getting ready to go mix and mingle” with loved ones! How dare they! Don’t they know staying home and quarantining against what is now effectively a common cold is more important?
That’s right: In spite of the fact that the omicron variant is widely reported to be less severe, Fauci is continuing to push boosters less anyone falls down with a case of the minor sniffles.
“It looks like the degree of severity of the disease is considerably less than they experienced with delta … We’re seeing inklings of that now in the United States. The UK is also seeing that. So I do hope that we do have the net effect is a diminution in the degree of severity …
Boosters are always good for any variant but particularly for omicron … If you are vaccinated and not yet boosted, and your time comes for getting boosted, please get boosted. It’s going to make all the difference to prevent you from getting severe disease.” [Source: Newsmax]
So, in other words, Fauci can simultaneously say that the omicron variant has “considerably less” severity, followed by a shameless push for boosters to prevent “severe disease,” without anyone calling out the discrepancy?
Is the omicron variant “considerably less” severe or is it associated with “severe disease?” Which one is it, Fauci?
One thing Fauci is definitely not addressing includes the precipitous decline in mental health that has emerged in light of the pandemic.
CBS News National Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford, however, has acknowledged this decline, especially on American youth.
“It’s the crushing impact that our COVID policies have had on kids and young children… even teenagers … They have sacrificed the most… The risk of suicide attempts among girls, now up 51% this year. Black kids nearly twice as likely as White kids to die by suicide. School closures, lockdown, cancellation of sports.” [Source: Fox News]
Perhaps Fauci should get a clue that the common cold is a tad less devastating than enormously disenchanted youth …
After all, which one will really affect society the most in the long run?
