I too am offended that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called Anthony Fauci an elf who should be tossed across the Potomac. Not because he said it, but because he forgot to say the part about the millstone.
Fauci deserves a fate far worse than an ornery turn of phrase. After a fair and transparent criminal trial, he deserves what all people guilty of manslaughter – at the very least – deserve. For he is the most dishonestly evil public figure in American history. He is America’s Mengele. And unless the emotional and psychological hold he still has on too many in this nation is quickly sent to the bottom of the sea, all of us will continue to suffer – with whatever lives we have left to live – at the whims of the all-powerful bio-medical fascist state.
This goes well beyond COVID. It has every bit as much to do now with whether or not we prefer being gaslit to knowing the truth as long as it allows our idols to survive – especially the government ones. We have gone from “resistance to tyranny is obedience to God” to “trust unelected government bureaucrats no matter how wrong and dishonest they are” in less than 250 years.
However, if you think Fauci is guilty of cosmic levels of gaslighting, what may come after him could very well give him a run for his demonic money. Democrats seem poised to finally give Donald Trump all the credit for the poisonous jabs that he has long demanded and craved. A “report” was released this week by House Democrats stating that the Trump administration “pressured the FDA to authorize unproven treatments for Covid-19 and the first Covid-19 vaccines on an accelerated timeline.”
I used to think such a pivot to blaming Trump and his “Operation Warp Speed” for the escalating risk/death/injury profile of these poisonous jabs might be impossible, because the cult of COVID would be too strong ever to be forced give up its magic potion idol. But then I learned yet another of so many harsh lessons to come my way in the last few years – when the lie is the point, the gaslighting can always get more ridiculous. Russian collusion and Kavanaugh hearings didn’t make it less likely that COVID would be blown out of proportion, but even more so. Because until there are consequences for such tyrannical deception, the scams against civic sanity and coherence will only grow more frequent and preposterous.
So instead of preparing Nuremburg-like trials for the likes of Fauci, the Overton window of the day is actually going to try to frame itself around the tall tale that Pfizer, Moderna, the FDA, the CDC, Big Tech censorship, and unprecedented government promotion and coercion didn’t lead to maybe the worst public health betrayal in American history. Of course! All those entities were bullied into a rush job by “Orange Man Bad” and only then abandoned their previous sterling and beyond-reproach reputations.
Or at least that is the forthcoming retcon, which is already in motion. And why not? They already claimed Trump was compromised into Russian collusion because of depraved behavior with Russian prostitutes, while the whole time it was actually Hunter Biden filming his own potential blackmail material with those aforementioned Russian prostitutes. When you keep getting away with it, you keep doing it.
This scenario is dark and terrible, obviously; nevertheless, I sincerely hope we are forced to watch it play out. For it may take something this brazen and wicked to finally call us out of our comfort and truly understand and thus start playing for existential stakes here. As opposed to our typical plan of watch Fox News all day and then save America by voting for Republicans who mostly hate us.
And if that still doesn’t do it, and we retreat back to our comfort as Fauci enjoys his lucrative retirement for putting the millstone around our children instead, at least we’ll know once and for all that we’re done here.
