Fauci blames Fox News and MTG for influx of death threats when people are reminded of his role in Covid

Fawning over Fauci, corporate media dished out their narrative decrying dissent from the likes of Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) as “nonsense” and the source of death threats.

Those expecting something akin to the Nuremberg trials were sorely disappointed Monday when former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony “The Science™” Fauci sat for public testimony before the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.

After several hours of questioning appeared to many as more likely to seed the ground for future draconian responses to declared health emergencies than to be seeking accountability, Fauci joined CNN’s “The Source” to lament one of the brief challenges he faced, courtesy of the Georgia congresswoman, as one of a number of wellsprings for threats to him and his family.

“You testified there at the end about the threats that you and your family are still getting, even to this day,” said host Kaitlan Collins who noted the once decades-long public official was joined by his wife at the hearing. “And I just wonder if you ever thought that you would still be getting threats like that, credible threats against your life, even now, two years out of government service.”

“You know, it’s very interesting. It’s a pattern, Kaitlan, that whenever somebody gets up, whether it’s a news media — you know Fox News does it a lot — or it’s somebody in the Congress who gets up and makes a public statement that I’m responsible for the deaths of X number of people because of policies or some crazy idea that I created the virus, immediately, it’s like clockwork, the death threats go way up,” responded Fauci.

“So, that’s the reason why I’m still getting death threats, when you have performances like that unusual performance by Marjorie Taylor Greene in today’s hearing,” he continued. “Those are the kind of things that drive up the death threats ’cause there are a segment of the population out there that believe that kind of nonsense.”

The “performance” from Greene, as Fauci called it, included her serving up a series of reminders about the lack of science that had been used to peddle masking and social distancing that drove lockdowns and ruined businesses and family livelihoods, as well as setting back the education of an entire generation. Additionally, while the former NIAID director further lashed out at those who refused the COVID mRNA shots, blaming them for the deaths of hundreds of thousands, the lawmaker also reminded the public about funding from Fauci’s agency that saw beagles tortured to death.

“As a dog lover, I want to tell you this is disgusting and evil, what you signed off on,” she said holding up a picture of the ghastly experiment.

“We should be writing a criminal referral because you should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity. You belong in prison, Dr. Fauci,” railed Greene during the hearing.

Likewise, on Fox News, Lisa Boothe called out, “…people lost their livelihoods because they didn’t want to get an experimental vaccine. When most vaccines have 5-10 years of safety data, this one had less than a year for a virus that was never a threat to their life because of their age, or being in good health or they already had natural immunity and they’d been previously exposed to the virus and did not need the vaccine.”

“He did irreparable harm to this country from the start… all signs pointing to his funding of gain-of-function at the Wuhan Lab and then censoring anyone who said that about the origins of the virus — to his bad guidance that he gave the nation which has all been wrong starting from the beginning,” she added with a rundown on lethality claims, mRNA shot efficacy and masking. “America is no longer American because of that man. So, I’m sorry Dr. Fauci, you are a liar and you are a terrible person and you should be punished for what you’ve done to this nation.”
