Fauci Signals The COVID Message Is Shifting

The pants-wetting hysteria that public health officials, politicians, and the media tried shoving down our throats over the Omicron variant has proved to be a huge joke.

Thankfully, Omicron – while highly contagious – is apparently the equivalent of a bad cold. And yet the panic push is continuing for some. School districts nationwide are either closing “temporarily” or requiring testing to return, or threatening to shut down. But reality is beginning to sink in, ever so slightly, to those on the left and in public health.

For example, here is MSNBC’s Chris Hayes saying, “hey, we can’t keep doing this.”

Oh, how convenient. You see, now that the “good” people are coming down with COVID, despite having followed all the rules from High Priest Fauci and believing wholeheartedly in the power of government to protect them, the narrative must change. Why? In order to justify keeping control, of course. Which means that we have always been at war with Eastasia, and Bill de Blasio (good riddance to bad rubbish) has always been against shutdowns.

Anyone else feel like uttering a few profanities after listening to that one? That is the very definition of gaslighting.

But the worst of the worst is Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has pretzeled himself into every conceivable position when it comes to public health policy, COVID, and lockdowns, now deciding to admit that pediatric COVID cases have been “overcounted.”

MSNBC host Ayman Mohyeldin, filling in for Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night, asked President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser to respond to the omicron variant fueling a rise in children ending up in the hospital. Fauci said the surge in numbers has two contributing factors.”

“First of all, quantitatively, you’re having so many more people, including children, who are getting infected. And even though hospitalization among children is much, much lower on a percentage basis than hospitalizations for adults, particularly elderly individuals,” he said, “when you have such a large volume of infections among children, even with a low level of rate of infection, you’re going to still see a lot more children who get hospitalized.”

“But the other important thing is that if you look at the children who are hospitalized, many of them are hospitalized with COVID as opposed to because of COVID,” Fauci continued. “And what we mean by that — if a child goes in the hospital, they automatically get tested for COVID. And they get counted as a COVID-hospitalized individual. When in fact, they may go in for a broken leg or appendicitis or something like that. So it’s overcounting the number of children who are, quote, ‘hospitalized with COVID,’ as opposed to because of COVID.”

If the tweet below with the video of Fauci saying this gets disappeared, a link to a non-YouTube video site is carrying it here. Hmmm, I wonder why this isn’t available on YouTube?

Even as much as the social media giants might try to suppress the message, Fauci admitting this out loud is a signal to public health officials and to the media. Time to shift the narrative if we want people to keep listening to us!

However, as Glenn Reynolds points out, there should be a reckoning for the lies that have been told. We cannot forget how the American public has been cruelly bullied during this entire pandemic by those who claimed they knew best.

Mistakes are forgivable. In the early days, everything we knew came from the Chinese government, and while we now know that Beijing lies about everything, we knew less then. In fact, it not only lied about the disease’s origins, its nature and its spread, it kept the Wuhan airport open for weeks, allowing (deliberately?) the disease to take hold all over the planet before anyone else knew it was coming.”

And in a fast-moving situation with imperfect information, mistakes are inevitable and hence forgivable. Nobody’s perfect.”

But lies and political manipulation are different. Those are a betrayal of trust, and they’re especially serious because trust is the public-health community’s greatest asset. The record here has been terrible, and we need investigation and accountability.”

Early on, public-health officials minimized COVID’s dangers, with Anthony Fauci telling people that it was safe to go on cruises. Maybe that was just a mistake. But then Fauci told people not to wear masks because they didn’t help, changing his position within a couple of weeks to become stringently pro-mask. The earlier statement, it turned out, wasn’t based on his scientific opinion but on a desire to reserve masks for health-care workers — a worthy goal, but that doesn’t justify the lying.”

Reynolds’s whole column is worth a read, and he points out what Glenn Greenwald pointed out just recently – the moment that broke the trust of many people was when public health officials declared BLM protests okay, but nothing else.

The message of the elites is shifting because the facts no longer support their extremes. The problem is, once we had information that wasn’t coming from China, their solutions NEVER matched the facts. And no one, beyond Senator Rand Paul and a few others, is trying to hold Fauci and company accountable.

The other reason the message is shifting? As of tomorrow, we are officially in a midterm election year. Brace yourselves, the gaslighting and rewriting of history is about to become extreme. Hang on to your receipts – you’ll need them.

    Fauci can change the narrative all he wants. I still am not listening to him, or the CDC, or the NIH, or anyone else yammering about COVID. They all lost whatever tenuous-at-best credibility they had in April of 2020.

  • F.D.R. in Hell says:

    In a perfect world, Betty White would be toasting the New Year today and Fauci would be toast…literally.

  • Micha Elyi says:

    When the facts change, Dr. Fauci changes his advice. What do Victory Girls do?

    Let’s be honest. Trump repeatedly made a fool of himself with his public statements about CHINA-19. Trump tried to dodge the press by hiding behind Dr. Fauci. Trumpists can’t allow themselves to say anything that might make Trump look bad. To resolve the resulting cognitive dissonance, Trumpists have transferred their resentment of Trump to Dr. Fauci.

    • SDN says:

      Micha is always ready to bash Trump, forgetting that Trump’s biggest effect is his exposure of the unelected bureaucracy that obeys when it feels like it…. and has been doing exactly that for 60 years while Micha cheered.

    • avi says:

      nonsense , the virus that came from the chinese bio-weapons lab that Fauci funded, and Fauci has repeated lied about it. And his lies set back our efforts for months, He knew that a leak from the lab he funded caused the pandemic. Great guy that little Mengele.
      Trump spoke the truth while Fauci lied and Democratic Governors were turning their nursing heirs into German style extermination camps. Of course that came naturally for Walz, Wolf und Whitmer

  • Do not imagine that anyone in the corridors of power will be punished for what we’ve suffered.
    Governments never accept blame.
    Government officials and agents are never held liable.
    Governments never make restitution for the harm they’ve done.
    Also — and I wish it were unnecessary to say this, but people are far too resistant:
    Governments cannot and will not protect anyone from anything.
    It’s no part of their agenda.
    Believe what you wish.

  • […] not as panicked as before, so there has to be a change… […]

  • […] aren’t supposed to ask questions when the CDC and/or Fauci suddenly move the goal posts as they’ve done multiple times in the last two years, and as […]

  • […] media platforms, and shouted down at public meetings. The narrative was chosen by weasels such as Fauci and whole heartedly adopted by our betters in the liberal media. Anyone who dared go against that […]
