Buzzfeed and the Washington Post cover a treasure trove of over 3,000 emails from Dr. Fauci. The media is crafting a narrative of a cool under pressure Fauci. It doesn’t work that easy on people locked down for 17 months thanks to his warnings. The question becomes why and why now?
Fauci is a lightning rod. He has his Fauci tattooed fans and his angry detractors. He also has made many Americans brush him off as a flip-flopping bureaucrat. He is an empty suit. This email expose, with redactions, is a nice, limited hangout for a figure associated with the 2020 coronavirus response. Fauci can resign or retire and make big bucks for foundations and collect speaking fees. The timing with Gates’ divorce mud dragging is a bit too coincidental for the other big face from the 2020 coronavirus response. Fauci can be replaced with a new female figure to give us the vax to the max message.
Why now should be obvious. The op is over. It’s almost summer. They announced the vax news the day after the election, they lifted restrictions in January, and the mask mandate disappeared with one bad jobs report. Unemployment is ending, office workers are getting their orders to come back and Slutty Summer is almost here you crazy singles! They want to go back to the before times albeit with brand new tracking and surveillance powers.
There needs to be a scapegoat because just as Chauvin had no chance after that emotional 2020 for progressives, someone needs to suffer some prestige hits for the CDC mismanagement of coronavirus. Politicians relied on experts so the experts are the easiest to do away with and be replaced by all new experts. Fauci will do, and it will please some angry conservatives who hated his guts. No one within their circle of trust will suffer professionally, but people will be shuffled around. Not a soul went to jail for Spygate, and no CDC official will suffer for this.
Fauci should have realized his fortune rested on a slender reed: public adoration. Fauci bobbleheads, Fauci toys and Fauci tattoos must have gone to his head. It all happened at such a late stage in his career and life. He must have loved it. None of the Fauci Fan Club members bothered to think how he did so many media interviews yet still had time to do his job. He never turned down an interview. At that point, they should have realized his job was selling America on hysteria. He succeeded there with people who could not check his statements from 48 hours earlier. Alas, he failed at his real job. He also failed the public. His flip flops and fumbling were his undoing, but the re-opening of states with no adverse effects crushed him. The CDC still screamed about darkness ahead as Florida and Texas adjusted to normal with no dangerous spikes. All but the crazies were done with his line.
For the damage he did to people, businesses and families, he deserves all God has in store for him. It is especially difficult to know he’ll get a golden parachute from the regime, because no matter the stat or fact you would say to your loved ones, they would not visit or even venture outside the house because that impish fraud was on television scaring them that the apocalypse was here.
