The Patriot Post® · In Brief: Why Politicians, Pundits, and 'Experts' Don't Want COVID to End
The ChiCom Virus pandemic may have started in China, but it’s clearly being perpetuated by petty American tyrants in government and the media. The Spectator’s Stephen Miller explains:
The coronavirus pandemic was a black-swan event the likes of which this planet hadn’t seen in almost a hundred years. It caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and crashed the global economy, resulting in the largest socioeconomic change since 2008. It was, in short, not good. Yet there are pockets of public health experts and corporate media pundits who seem content to play out an endless cycle of pandemic porn. This runs contrary to what the majority of the population wants to watch and how most Americans are choosing to live their lives.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Beltway bureaucratic expert of the year, is among those perpetuating the fear.
When Business Insider asked Fauci if he saw himself attending indoor dining anytime soon, the good doctor said no, even though he is fully vaccinated. Movie theaters? That was also a no. Airplane travel? Nope. We don’t know if Fauci was speaking as a leading health expert and the top epidemiologist in the country, or simply an obsessive compulsive and raging hypochondriac. That’s the problem: Anthony Fauci has wrapped himself in a cocoon of personal skepticism on everything from sporting games to weddings, apparently unaware that these events have resumed over most of the country.
Unfortunately, he’s not alone. Media talkers routinely fill television and newspaper/online outlets with more fear — even for those who’ve either already had COVID or both doses of the vaccine.
Most of us are already exasperated by mixed messaging from every government agency in charge of public perception. The FAA and CDC both said vaccinated people should still not fly on airplanes, before pulling back and then declaring it safe to do so. President Biden, who has been fully vaccinated for four months, still wanders around in a mask, as does the Vice President who shadows him at every turn. The media and the Biden administration want to tell everyone that the vaccines work, but are unwilling to demonstrate the perks of getting vaccinated. These people are not interested in returning to normal by the end of the year. …
However, Miller concludes, “One thing seems obvious as more and more people become immunized against both the virus and hesitant elites — life is going to resume whether the ruling class wants it to or not.”
