TODD: Dr. Fauci is continuing his ever-evolving positions on things since he determined that this is The Walking Dead combined with The Stand, combined with the smallpox, combined with all these things. The deadliest virus known in the history of the world — albeit, you know, with the 99.87% overall survival rate.
Smallpox, I think, killed 60% of the people who got it before they figured out that they could use cowpox, expose people to a lesser variant of the virus and prepare their immune systems. Dr. Fauci says that face masks “could become seasonal” after the covid flu. Just a fun fact. You know what’s still floating around in the air? Spanish flu. Still floating out there. Don’t freak out.
We’ve developed immune systems that can respond to this. Well, we have immune systems that developed responses to that. To watch this man just continue to evolve these positions, it’s astonishing — astonishing because the fact of the matter is, his own organization published one of the most robust pieces of work about masks ever.
They observed multiple, multiple controlled, randomized trials where people had confirmed upper-respiratory influenza. They confirmed it. They observed people in home settings, in apartment settings, in work settings, and — believe it or not — they observed people on a pilgrimage to Mecca. At no time did these masks inhibit the transmission of these viruses.
But Fauci now says these are going to be seasonal. (Snort!) There are college students from UMass Amherst suspended for not wearing masks off campus. There was a track athlete in Oregon, a young woman in high school who passed out because she had to wear a woke mask running a race, and we’re still with this mask thing. Now Fauci’s saying (impression), “Well, it might be a bit of a tradition like Santa Claus, to put on a face diaper.
“Just think of it as a way of remembering me, Dr. Tony Fauci, and it would be an opportunity for you to think about me and talk about me and just focus on me during the Christmas season.” I could see that happening. Could you? Then there’s this. I was talking this weekend to a woman whose son has a kind of mystery heart condition, and he wants to play football. He’s a young man in high school, wants to play football.
His cardiologist, his heart doctor typed a letter to the school saying, “This young man should not wear a mask when he plays football.” The response of the school is basically (impression), “Well, sticks and stones will break some bones, but you’re just an MD. You’re not even a PhD. Our superintendent, she’s a PhD, so waaaah.” This woman’s in this position of her young son, young man, wants to play football, and he’s willing to risk his life to do that.
The mom may not be as willing to have her son suffer a heart attack, and then — along the lines of Fauci — in Ontario, Canada, doctors are forbidden from contradicting the covid narrative. They’re forbidden from that. That doctor who wrote that note on behalf of his patient saying, “This human being should not wear a mask,” that’s now illegal.
Well, it’s not illegal, but it’s gonna be punished by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. How do I observed? ‘Cause it’s on their website. So doctors are no longer what? Are we going to outlaw doctors discussing cases? You know, doctors will come together sometimes, and they’ll have discussions about a particular patient’s predicament, and they’ll share ideas. “Not in Ontario!”
Why do you need doctors? If the narrative is the cure, just go in there and repeat the narrative. You got someone in there starving for oxygen — they’re apoxic, their lips are blue — just go in and say (Fauci impression), “Well, really what you’re feeling is just concern that you’re not near enough me.” Maybe we could just have screens of “the Fauch” in these places. That may be it.
“Aw, my arm’s broken. Well, it might be broken, but really what we might be dealing with is some side effects of the covid flu.” Fauci’s gonna prove to be, years from now, in my opinion, one of the most deceptive people in the history of our country and perhaps most harmful. A year ago, this week Rush was right here behind his — only Rush has it — the Golden EIB Microphone, pointing out the contradictions coming from Fauci and others on this topic. And he was right on when it came to the disproportionate amount of attention this doctor was getting at the time, including some journalists calling Fauci “the sexiest man alive.” Absurdity on full display.
Here’s the Maha on that topic.
RUSH: I have a story here PJ Media: “Neurosurgeon Says Face Masks Pose Serious Risk to Healthy People.” Again, this story is written by Megan Fox. I think this Megan Fox babe does nothing but write stories for PJ Media. It seem like I quote from her four times a day. Which is fine. Don’t misunderstand.
“Every Karen on Facebook is shaming her neighbors for not wearing a face mask.” You’ve heard about this, right? Snitches, a bunch of blue state governors are actually asking citizens to snitch on people not wearing masks, not practicing social distancing, hanging around closer to six feet to people, going places they shouldn’t go, and these people have names, nicknames. They’re called Karens. And they are deploying on Facebook. They’re snitching on people, identifying them on Facebook.
And so she writes here, every one of these snitches, every Karen on Facebook is shaming her neighbors for not wearing a face mask. “We are being told by governors that if we don’t wear them we are selfish, horrible human beings with no souls who want Grandma to die a horrible death. Police are tackling people who don’t wear them properly in the subway. Grocery stores are throwing maskless people out and denying them service.
But now, there’s another doctor weighing in-besides Dr. Fauci, bonafide sex god and ruler of us all…” Now, you may not understand her reference there to bonafide sex god, but it’s because some idiot female journalist at Vanity Fair or New Yorker, whatever, proclaimed Fauci the sexiest man alive not that long ago. So that’s her snide reference to Dr. Fauci as a bonafide sex god.
Dr. Fauci, by the way, “who also said face masks are largely security theater and of no use to the healthy. Dr. Russell Blaylock, a neurosurgeon, has written an editorial addressing healthy people wearing masks to protect themselves from covid-19 and his advice is: don’t.” If you’re healthy, do not wear the mask. “First, Blaylock says, there is no scientific evidence that it is effective against covid-19 transmission. Pro-science people should care about this.”
Now, you realize how many people gonna be floored and stunned by that? Hell, folks, I needed some dental surgery done a couple weeks ago. Could not enter, do any without wearing a mask, everybody in there was wearing a mask and you start telling people that healthy people don’t need it, that it’s not gonna protect you from covid-19, you’re gonna upset a whole bunch of applecarts.
But Dr. Blalock is suggesting that it isn’t necessary. Dr. Fauci has called it security theater, and yet, as the number of cases is flattening now, here come all these people increasing the wearing of masks in the health community. It’s almost as though they don’t want you to get the message that the news on the virus might be improving.
TODD: Almost like that. Timeless! You know, Scientific American came out with this article that was just impressive. I think it was in New Mexico. “Oh, look how they’ve destroyed the virus! They did it with mask compliance,” and a month after that piece came out, the cases went up because it became wintertime. It’s tied to the climate.
This is something I get a lot from people in email because I do talk radio; they’ll send me a note (impression), “Uh, you know, forgive me if I take my advice from the scientists versus a shock jock.” Right. Here’s my response: “Which scientists?” They just look at me just blue-screening. “What?” “You said you’d take your advice from the scientists. Which ones?” “Uh, well, one’s called Fauci. Got it. Outsourcing your intellect. Brilliant.
