Dr Fauci: Attacks Against Me Are “Attacks on Science”


Dr. Anthony Fauci doesn’t just think he’s an expert…

He believes that he is the equivalent of science itself.

Those aren’t our words – those are his.

Specifically, Dr. Fauci said:

Attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science.

So what does Dr. Fauci have to say about the scientists who are questioning his decisions?

What does Fauci have to say about physicians who have spoken out against him?

Do they not count as experts and scientists as well?

Here’s the truth: science is about asking questions.

It’s also about doubt, because you have to prove your hypothesis through experimentation.

For Fauci to appear to claim that he is science itself is highly egotistical and dangerous for our progress as a species.

Fauci made the comments on MSNBC:

Fortunately, people are seeing past Fauci’s ego.

People are seeing through Fauci’s arrogance.

And they are calling him out.

The sad part is that Fauci was able to say that with a straight face.

The New York Post confirms Fauci’s outrageous claim:

Dr. Anthony Fauci lashed out Wednesday at critics who have called for his firing — saying the salvos launched at him are “attacks on science.”

“It’s very dangerous,” Fauci told MSNBC. “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.”

He added, “People want to fire me or put me in jail for what I’ve done — namely, follow the science.”

The White House chief medical adviser has come under fire in recent days after the release of emails from early in the coronavirus pandemic. Critics have lambasted him for everything from changing his stance on masks to dismissing the possibility that the virus was leaked from a lab in China.

But Fauci defended himself in the interview with Chuck Todd by slamming his detractors’ criticism as “preposterous,” and calling their other points “just painfully ridiculous.”

“It’s preposterous, Chuck. Totally preposterous,” he said of the attacks.

In the early days of the pandemic, when researchers were still learning about asymptomatic transmission, Fauci said he was simply following the science that was known at the time, he said in the interview.

There was a mask shortage back then and little evidence showing that the face covers worked at stopping COVID-19 from spreading outside of hospitals, he said.

But when new research emerged, he changed his stance and advocated for wearing masks, he said.

“As a scientist, as a health official, when those data change, when you get more information, it’s essential that you change your position because you’ve got to be guided by the science and the current data,” he said.

Fauci added that he was “picked as the villain” on the mask issue despite other public health officials sharing his views back then.

Of course, Fauci is attempting to cover-up his mistakes and defend himself.

However, his record speaks for itself.

He has flip-flopped.

And he has been proven wrong time and time again.

What is interesting is where Fauci made this claim.

Fauci said this on MSNBC.

Now, we don’t know about you, but to us, it is interesting that Fauci has the time to appear on TV almost every single day.

In the middle of the pandemic.

He somehow had the time to write a book.

Tell us: how did Dr. Fauci have time to go on TV so often and write a book in the middle of a global pandemic?

It appears to us that he is more interested in political fame rather than actually helping the American people.

The Independent even called it a “fiery” TV appearance:

Dr Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser to the president, went on a fiery rant against the attacks being hurled at him by Republicans.

Dr Fauci went off after he was shown a video of Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn putting forward a conspiracy theory about Dr Fauci colluding with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to push a narrative about Covid-19.

The National Review confirms the statement was made on MSNBC:

Dr. Anthony Fauci equated the personal attacks he’s faced to “attacks on science” during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday.

Asked by host Chuck Todd whether he’s concerned about media outlets or individuals discrediting public health authorities, as evident in Russia, Fauci answered, “A lot of what your seeing as attacks on me quite frankly are attacks on science because all of the things I have spoken about from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science.”

“Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people. And there was pushback against me. So if you are trying to get at me, as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really not only attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science,” he continued.

The chief medical advisor to the president claimed that it is undeniable that the criticism he’s received, some of which stems from the contradictory messaging found in his recently leaked email correspondence, is really an assault on truth.

“And anybody who 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,” Fauci added.

Thousands of Fauci’s emails were just released in response to a FOIA request from Buzzfeed News, leading many to question his credibility as a public health official. In one of Fauci’s emails, Peter Daszak, who directed millions in U.S. funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) as part of his role running the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance, thanked Fauci for publicly dismissing the theory that coronavirus originated via an accident at the lab.

What do you think?

Are we seeing Dr. Fauci’s true egotistical colors?

Or is he simply in panic mode, trying to protect his reputation?
