Watch Dr. Anthony Fauci Tell Off Scientifically Illiterate Jim Jordan. David Gordon at Blog for Arizona reports.
You go Dr. Fauci.
Minutes ago at a House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis (on April 15, 2021,) Dr. Anthony Fauci artfully defended his views on the necessity of wearing masks and social distancing to one of the most scientifically illiterate and vocal bombastic asinine poster boys for the fringe right- Ohio Representative Jim Jordan.
This is not the first time the two extremes of the human evolutionary scale have clashed.
They had a heated exchange in late July 2020 over the Coronavirus.
During the April 15, 2021 back and forth, Dr. Fauci responded to Jordans whining about when Americans will get their liberties back by stating:
“My response Congressman Jordan is to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can. To get the level of infection in this country low so it is no longer a threat. That is when and I believe when that happens, you’ll see…”
Jordan then interrupted Fauci about what determines when.
Fauci, in a professional way, then went off on Jordan, saying:
“You know, you’re indicating liberty and freedom. I look at it as a public health measure to prevent people from dying and going to the hospital…”
Jordan interrupted again about liberties and freedoms getting assaulted.
Fauci then rightfully lost his temper, saying:
“I don’t look at this as a liberty thing Congressman Jordan. I look at this as a public health thing…”
Jordan interrupted again, telling Fauci that people’s First Amendment rights like attending church and assembling or censoring government released videos were being assaulted due to the public safety mitigation measures stemming from the Coronavirus Pandemic.
“I don’t think anything was censored because they felt they couldn’t disagree with me. I think you’re making this a personal thing and it isn’t.”
Jordan says he was not making this personal to which Fauci replied he was. The Doctor then said:
“My recommendations are not a personal recommendation. It’s based on the CDC guidance which is…(Jordan interrupted again repeating his rant) Right now we have about 60,000 infections a day which is a very large risk for a surge. We’re not talking about liberties. We’re talking about a pandemic that has killed 560,000 Americans. That’s what we’re talking about.”
From this exchange between one of the country’s most respected scientists and the nations most notorious dim wits, it should be clear that the most important way to stem the tide of the Coronavirus is to:
- Get vaccinated as soon as possible.
- Continue to practice public safety measures like wearing masks and social distancing.
- Do not listen to scientifically illiterate imbecile-reactionaries like Jim Jordan. They are worse than the virus because they are needlessly putting people in danger with their big lies that personal freedoms are being stomped on because people have to wear masks or attend church services online.
