The Patriot Post® · Another Colossal Fauci Fail

By Mark Alexander ·

In his address to the nation last week, ironically on the anniversary of when the ChiCom-controlled puppets at the World Health Organization declared the ChiCom Virus a pandemic, President Joe Biden brazenly took credit for the success of the Trump administration’s vaccine development and distribution plan.

Despite that success, Biden decreed, “We will issue guidance on what you can and cannot do when fully vaccinated.” He further advised, “My message to you is this: Listen to Dr. Fauci, one of the most distinguished and trusted voices in the world.”

Fact is, as I noted last week regarding Anthony Fauci’s opposition to “the science” of herd immunity, this 80-year-old lifelong DC bureaucrat, having been in the bowels of various federal agencies since 1968 and now the highest paid of all government bureaucrats at almost $420,000 per year, is long past his cognitive expiration date.

Now comes revelation of another colossal Fauci fail.

Recall that after the Coronavirus Task Force, with Fauci at the helm, issued its 15 Days to Slow the Spread recommendations in March of 2020, Fauci dictated to the nation that a key factor in social distancing was that we all had to stay six feet away from each other. Fauci’s six-foot diktat was one of the factors that resulted in shutting down school systems, restaurants, etc. — wrecking the U.S. economy and millions of American lives.

For most of the last year, that six-foot mandate has been the hard-and-fast rule, except, of course, for all those “peaceful protests” against the leftist “systemic racism” lie and all those “racist police.” Apparently, the risk of those super-spreader riots was acceptable.

Recall that, according to the protest permission slip issued by more than 1,200 “public health professionals, infectious diseases professionals, and community stakeholders,” the burn, loot, and murder hordes were justified because “White supremacy is a lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to COVID-19.” And according to Johns Hopkins epidemiologist Jennifer Nuzzo, DrPH, “In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus.” Those sentimental absurdities were echoed by other “health professionals.”

That woke nonsense notwithstanding, it turns out “the science” Fauci used regarding distancing was not the actual science. As the Demos’ “summer of rage” was cranking up in June, a British medical journal, The Lancet, published a study noting, “For the general public, evidence shows that physical distancing of more than 1 m is highly effective…” In other words, three feet or more, not a minimum of six feet, is highly effective at preventing viral spread.

This week Fauci was asked about a more recent study by his CNN sycophant, Jake Tapper: “Does this study suggest to you that three feet is good enough?” Fauci responded, “It does, indeed.” He added, “And I can assure you, within a reasonable period of time, quite reasonable, [the CDC] will be giving guidelines according to the data that they have. It won’t be very long, I promise you.”

That’s it? No apology for being disastrously wrong? Apparently, being Fauci means never having to say you’re sorry! Fauci’s revelation is just a year too late for the disaster he authored, but again, in Biden’s words, “Listen to Dr. Fauci, one of the most distinguished and trusted voices in the world.” Trust them — they’re from the government.

Additionally, it is now clear that government mandated shutdowns and lockdowns were largely ineffective and have proven disastrous for our people and economy.
