MTG unloads on Anthony Fauci: ‘We will lock him up!’

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R) latest salvo against The Science™ was accompanied by a unified crowd chanting what fate they’d like to befall Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Less than two weeks after the congresswoman confronted the former director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases during a subcommittee hearing, she made clear his free pass with corporate media wasn’t going to fly if she has “anything to do with it.”

Speaking before attendees gathered at Turning Point Action’s “People’s Convention” in Detroit, Michigan Saturday, the legislator connected the dots on the two-tiered justice system, the weaponization of government and the unaddressed allegations of “crimes against humanity,” committed by the infamous face of the COVID response with a promise to “lock him up!”

Blurring the lines between events that began under former President Donald Trump and those that continued or escalated under President Joe Biden, Greene contrasted the incarceration of Jan. 6 prisoners who’d expressed their concern over election integrity with that of Fauci and those responsible for decisions that decimated American liberties, ruining, and in many cases, ending lives.

“I was in Washington, D.C., and I’ll never forget when the Biden administration and Nancy Pelosi, as speaker of the House, brought in nearly 30,000 National Guardsmen and turned our Capitol complex into a military base. And you weren’t allowed in there. And then they proceeded to shut down the country over COVID,” noted the Georgia congresswoman.

“They masked schoolchildren. They shut down schools. They closed beaches. They silenced your speech. They kicked you off social media. They attacked the very core of our freedoms, all for a virus that they made in a lab in Wuhan, China,” accused Greene who added, “And yes, Dr. Anthony Fauci should be tried for crimes against humanity.”

Reminiscent of the lead up to the 2016 presidential election where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal, among others, went unaddressed, chants of “Lock him up!” rang forth from the crowd.

“Well, I can assure you,” responded Greene, “if I have anything to do with it, we will lock him up! He belongs in prison!”

That promise followed a direct confrontation with Fauci during his testimony before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic where she’d not only challenged his actions related to COVID, but other experiments in the name of science like torturing beagles to death.

“Do you think that’s appropriate…Mr. Fauci, because you’re not a doctor,” she’d slammed to his face, “you’re Mr. Fauci in my few minutes.”

“We should be writing a criminal referral because you should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity,” Greene had added on the record with a dig, “You belong in prison, Dr. Fauci.”

In response, Fauci appeared on CNN after his hearing and played the victim while continuing to gaslight over gain-of-function research and unscientific recommendations sold as mandatory mitigation measures that shuttered the United States.
