Look around, anyone else getting that deja vu feeling? This is a path that we’ve gone down before and guess who was in charge of the debacle? If you guessed Fauci, you’ve been keeping up.
As AIDS was primarily killing gay young men and some people who had received transfusions, Fauci was busy ignoring the facts. It was obvious to the physicians treating AIDS patients that thousands of gay men were dying and a very small percentage of heterosexuals were afflicted.
Fauci promised an effective vaccine within a year and 40 years later we are still waiting.
The AIDS epidemic ravaged through communities and robbed families of their loved ones. Fauci and the CDC refused to shut down gay bars and bathhouses. No edicts they said. Instead they handed out condoms. Individuals were trusted to make their own decisions. Some did and some didn’t. They trotted out laws to make it a crime to have unprotected sex. Why did they mince around the facts and insist it was equally deadly and prevalent in gay and straight populations? I’m fairly certain that politics created a false equivalency so as to avoid stigmatizing the very group who were watching their worlds collapse.
Fauci has a pattern and a history of failure. Instead of protecting the most vulnerable, the gays in AIDS and the elderly in Covid, he chose to grandstand and elevate himself by spreading fear. He was on every channel, in essence screaming “do as I say or you’ll die”. When it came to saving lives, Fauci chose his own fame over the health and wellbeing of Americans.
