Is Dr. Fauci…joking?
After many, many, many months of governments systematically destroying basic liberties for each and every American at the recommendation of Dr. Fauci, he’s now expressing doubt about whether he was correct.
That could quite possibly be the most frustrating statement we’ve ever heard.
To “stop the spread” of the China Virus, Fauci demanded that the United States come to a halt. Americans immediately lost their right to associate and move freely, we were forced out of work, and, as a result, the entire U.S. economy has shifted to a globalist European model.
“I don’t think we’re ever going to be able to determine what the right balance is,” Fauci said.
FAUCI: “I don’t think we’re ever going to be able to determine” if covid lockdowns were worth it.

If you’re unsure whether or not to strip basic freedoms away from an entire population, wouldn’t you air on the side of caution?
“Obviously, when you do have that kind of restriction on society, there are unintended negative consequences, particularly in children who are not allowed to go to school, in the psychological and mental health aspects it has on children, in the economic stress that it puts on society in general, on individual families,” Fauci said. “Obviously, those are negative consequences that are unintended. One has to look at the balance of lives saved, hospitalizations avoided.”
Fauci added that he cannot say whether future lockdowns will be needed, admitting that the idea of them now “has a charged element to it.”
“I believe that we must keep our eye on the pattern of what we’re seeing with infections,” Fauci said. “Right now, I’ll take the United States, for example, the cases continue to go down, the hospitalizations go down, and the deaths go down. We are going in a gradual way towards what we all hope will be normal.”
However, Fauci noted that the U.S. should expect to see what the United Kingdom is experiencing with a resurgence of the omicron variant, particularly the BA.2 subvariant. He could not say what the next winter would look like.
Raworth also pressed Fauci on greater clarity regarding the origin of the virus, asking if the scientific community was too quick to say COVID-19 happened naturally and did not come from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
“I don’t think they were dismissing it,” Fauci said, insisting he was never certain about the origin. “I think it has been misinterpreted. Everyone has always kept an open mind.”
We’re absolutely speechless.
