Watch as Biden’s medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci goes full Orwell by claiming that the reason the country can’t re-open is political ideology and NOT the virus.
Basically Fauci is saying that if only those Neanderthal Republicans would obey my dictates we’d be able to open the country up sooner.
FAUCI: “You know, of all of the pandemic outbreaks that I’ve had to deal with over the 36 years that I’ve been directing the Infectious Disease Institute, I have never seen a situation that even came close to this with regard to divisiveness over ideology, political ideology, that actually swept over into the issue of public health where people — as you mentioned correctly in your statement and your question — the health officials who pushed for commonsense, well-accepted public health measure of wearing masks, physical distancing, avoiding congregate settings, including indoor, are actually looked upon as the enemy, the enemy of getting the economy open, the enemy of getting people’s jobs back — when, in fact, the common enemy is the virus, not the health officials who are trying to do as best as they can to get this country out of this pandemic grip that we’re in and the way we do that is by adherence to public health measures. And you’re right, public health officials have been threatened and many of them have left their position.
The President is very well aware of that and is encouraging everyone to look at this as a common fight.
Also, I might mention the recently passed $1.9 trillion relief bill includes in it a lot of resources that will be helping the local public health officials to do their jobs better.
As city leaders, what you could do is please get behind your public health officials.
They are totally dedicated to the health of the nation, and particularly for you locally, to the health of their community. So please continue to give them your strong, uninhibited support.”
