Dr. Fauci Admits He Treated Americans Like Children

(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and perhaps the most visible member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, admitted during a recent interview with the far-left New York Times that he treated Americans like children.

When asked why he had changed his mind about how much of the American population would need to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity, Fauci revealed he was trying to manipulate people.

“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent … Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85,” he said.

“We need to have some humility here …. We really don’t know what the real number is. I think the real range is somewhere between 70 to 90 percent. But, I’m not going to say 90 percent,” he added.

What is it with this guy and treating Americans like children rather than just telling the truth?

It’s precisely the same tactic used by Fauci and other health officials when they told Americans at the beginning of the pandemic that masks were not effective and they shouldn’t be worn. It has since turned out that the advice against wearing masks at the beginning of the year was actually an effort to stop a run on masks and to protect the limited supply for health professionals.

That’s exactly what Republican Senator Marco Rubio noticed, too. In a tweet, the former presidential candidate reminded his followers that Fauci lied about masks in March and has since been distorting the level of vaccination required to reach herd immunity.

“It isn’t just him,” Rubio added. “Many in elite bubbles believe the American public doesn’t know ‘what’s good for them’ so they need to be tricked into ‘doing the right thing.’”

As vaccines roll out across the United States and millions of Americans are given protection against COVID-19, Democratic governors are keeping states locked down under stay-at-home orders and public health officials are admitting to lying.

What a time to be alive…
