On the Right, he is a Deep State operative who destroyed the lives of countless people to serve a hidden agenda, all while mysteriously taking home a bigger paycheck than any other federal employee
In my view, a very ‘thin’ paper and leaves out the Wuhan lab role he has had and the devastation he and Baric and Daszak and Francis Collins has had on the world that is ongoing, the disaster he caused with Bactrim in 1980s with HIV and AZT, the devastation of the neocons and anthrax etc. etc. et. Interesting but poorly researched and written. More of a compliment to the little one.
What is the main message? 'In a way, ‘the reality is that both narratives fundamentally misunderstand the position Fauci occupies in American government. Far from being a public health expert, Fauci sits at the very top of America’s biodefence infrastructure. And contrary to the notion that he is a Deep State string-puller of the Democratic party, it was George W. Bush and Dick Cheney who not only put Fauci there but created the very framework that the immunologist-physician commands.
This in part accounts for the otherwise inexplicable fact that Fauci, loathed by President Trump, was never fired by the notoriously vengeful politician who galvanised his brand with the phrase “You’re fired!”.
