Piling on to the list of things he’s opined about that are far beyond his ken, Dr. Anthony Fauci is now purporting that the COVID pandemic has exposed “the undeniable effects of racism.”
“COVID-19 has shown a bright light on our own society’s failings,” said during a graduation ceremony for Emory University over the weekend.
“Now, very few of these comorbidities have racial determinants,” he went on, in explaining why minority communities have been disproportionately affected by the coronavirus.
“Almost all relate to the social determinants of health dating back to disadvantageous conditions that some people of color find themselves in from birth regarding the availability of an adequate diet, access to health care and the undeniable effects of racism in our society,” Fauci claimed.
This is also the man, mind you, who couldn’t make up his mind whether people should wear face masks in the early days of the spread, later claiming that he intentionally told people not to wear masks even though he knew they should because he didn’t want all the protective gear to get scooped up by the general public before health care and other frontline workers could stockpile enough for themselves. He also flip-flopped on herd immunity stats, later admitting to moving the goalpost intentionally to manipulate public behavior. This was, of course, all while vehemently refusing to declare victory against COVID-19 despite the presence of multiple and widely available vaccines, and even as the CDC announced that vaccinated people could ditch their face masks and safely return to life as normal.
Of course, Fauci is also the ‘infectious disease expert” who has claimed that gun violence is a “public health issue,” despite not having any credible expertise on firearms, gun deaths or the legalities surrounding the Second Amendment. So while there's little non-anecdotal evidence that the pandemic has any ties whatsoever to societal "racism," it has exposed one thing for sure: that Fauci is anything but an unbiased, objective source for information.
