Anthony Fauci has been one of the most powerful health bureaucrats in the history of our country. He has used his power to run the narrative that benefits him through mainstream media as well as medical publications and scholarly journals. Simultaneously, he has used his influence to silence opposing voices. People who have challenged his narrative have paid the price because Fauci’s motto is to crush dissenters systematically.
In early 2020, when the pandemic started, many scientists started to hypothesize the source of the virus. Fauci disputed the lab-leak hypothesis and proclaimed the natural-origin theory of SARS-CoV-2. Fauci’s motto is to crush dissenters and was seen in Fauci’s cover-up of Covid-19 origin. This cover-up involved powerful scientists, health bureaucrats, and government officials all around the world which oppressed alternative views.
The Great Barrington Declaration
Another example of how Fauci’s motto is to crush dissenters can be seen when the Great Barrington Declaration was published. The Great Barrington Declaration (GBD) was a formal statement signed by many infectious disease epidemiologists, public health scientists, and medical practitioners (931,548 signatures). They published their concerns about the damaging health consequences, physical and mental, of the prevailing COVID-19 policies.
They criticized Fauci’s strategy and his erroneous approach to treating everyone the same. The fact that he refused to consider the impact of the virus on individual demographics. Studying the virus they knew that those with chronic conditions and the elder were high-risk populations and that children and younger individuals were at low risk of mortality.
They opposed total lockdowns and expressed concerns about medical ethics involving COVID-19 “vaccines.” By using common sense and logic, they suggested different treatments and precautions for different segments of the population. They recommended a Focused Protection Approach.
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford, Dr. Sunetra Gupta of Oxford, and Dr. Martin Kulldorff of Harvard were the main voices of the Great Barrington Declaration opposing Fauci’s approach. Soon after publishing the GBD, they found themselves under attack.
Emails Involving Fauci & Collins Aiming to Destroy GBD
Emails obtained through a FOIA request by the American Institute for Economic Research show how Fauci’s motto is to crush dissenters. We now have the evidence showing Fauci and NIH Director Francis Collins conniving to destroy the premises of the GBD and its authors.
- Upon publishing the GBD, Collins sent an email to Fauci titled: The Great Barrington Declaration. The body of the email read, “three fringe epidemiologists…seem to be getting a lot of attention – and even a co-signature from Nobel Prize winner Mike Leavitt at Stanford. There needs to be a quick and devastating published takedown of its premises. I don’t see anything like that online yet – is it underway?”
- Fauci wrote back that there was going to be a piece in the publication Wired disparaging the GBD, “I am pasting in below a piece from Wired that debunks this theory.”
- Fauci emailed again, “Another refutation of the herd immunity approach.” This was a piece by Gregg Gonsalves, a public health professor at Yale, in The Nation.
- Collins emailed an article published in the Washington Post in which the GBD authors were ridiculed, saying that people who signed it included, “Dr. Johnny Bananas” and “Dr. Person Fakename.” Collins was part of the article in which he said, “What I worry about with this is it’s being presented as if it’s a major alternative view that’s held by large numbers of experts in the scientific community. That is not true. This is a fringe component of epidemiology. This is not mainstream science. It’s dangerous… as a justification for skipping wearing masks or social distancing and just doing whatever they damn well please.”
- Gonsalves emailed Collins thanking him for his comments “on the ludicrous Great Barrington Declaration” and for “doing it undiplomatically.” He also send a link to an article in The Washington Post in which he collaborated with other writers debunking the GBD again.
- Fauci emailed Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, urging her to oppose the GBD and refute any points highlighted by Scott Atlas (who was Trump’s advisor on the White House Coronavirus Task Force and didn’t agree with Fauci’s approach for total lockdowns and mass vaccination and masking, and agreed with the GBD – he wrote a great book about it his experience dealing with Fauci, A Plague upon Our House: My Fight at the Trump White House to Stop COVID from Destroying America).
- Fauci also involved NIAID Chief of Staff Gregory Folkers, who replied to an email showing several political op-eds and articles opposing the GBD from popular media outlets. There was even an article where the GBD authors were referred to as quacks and conspiracy theories with a declaration full of fraudulent signatures.
Dr. Jay Bhattacharya reported that Fauci and Collins “create a false impression of scientific consensus on COVID policy, label those who disagree fringe, and deploy big tech misinformation hordes to suppress opposition.”
Fauci’s motto is to crush dissenters. He has been doing it for decades and is very skillful at it. He has been silencing opposing views and destroying the professional lives of those who dare to go against the narrative that he wants to push. A person who thinks that criticizing him is criticizing science and that he “represents science” is a narcissist who should never have that much power.
