From the New York Times, December 24, 2020: “Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.”
So Fauci again lied about the herd immunity goal posts going for herd immunity, based on his “feeling” about what people were “ready to hear.” How about the truth Dr? How about not attempting to manipulate people to accomplish some deeper goal?
Apologists for Fauci on the mask issues admit he lied about masks for months in order to prevent a run on masks. It is completely rational to question his veracity. Lies for a good reason are still lies. Lying to the public for all of 2020 should immediately be cause for him to resign in disgrace.
His ensuing lack of credibility and credulity among people paying attention to the actual science is due to his continual lies over the course of 2020. If you truly care about science, you need to look at the actual factual data without the lying Fauci filter intervening. Anyone who really cares about facts, science, and reality must realize that Fauci has been playing politics with coronavirus since January 2020.
One wonders what he was telling the President at the same time? Certainly not the truth given his public statements. Where are the full transcripts of the coronavirus meetings?
Remember that when Fauci claims to be “pro science” he may really be lying which we may find out half a year or longer later. Selectively presenting facts results in people viewing him as a calculating person who is out to manipulate instead of being honest. Who wants their information coming from a person like that? No one who honestly cares about the truth or science.
Scientists should present facts, and truth, not massaging the information to manipulate people. That is anti-science, anti-reality, and anti-reason. It has one huge effect, to politicize whatever it is and undermine the trust in science. That is something anyone who believes in the scientific method should avoid at all costs. It is the trademark of hacks.
Fauci’s behavior is more typical of a cult than science. He should be ashamed.
