Dr. Fauci to America: Time to ‘Do What You’re Told’

Dr. Fauci to America: Time to ‘Do What You’re Told’

“I was talking with my U.K. colleagues who are saying the U.K. is similar to where we are now, because each of our countries have that independent spirit”

https://youtu.be/d4lyvKXUup4

Dr. Anthony Fauci sat for an interview about the pandemic this week and said that even though Americans have an independent spirit, “now is the time to do what you’re told.”

That should go over well with millions of Americans who have already had pandemic fatigue for months now.

Isn’t this just what you want to hear when many schools, churches, restaurants, and other businesses still aren’t allowed to open?

Christina Farr writes at CNBC:

Fauci says U.S. has ‘independent spirit,’ but now is the time to ‘do what you’re told’

Whitehouse coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci thinks that Americans have an independent spirit, but that there are times when it’s in our best interest to follow the rules.

Fauci, speaking on Thursday at Washington National Cathedral with other top health experts on the pandemic, noted that it is a bit unfair to compare the United States’ coronavirus response with other countries. The United States isn’t an island with five million people that can easily be shut down, he notes. So suppressing and controlling the virus is a lot more of a challenge.

“I was talking with my U.K. colleagues who are saying the U.K. is similar to where we are now, because each of our countries have that independent spirit,” he said on stage. “I can understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told.”

Fauci noted that scientists have been perceived throughout this pandemic as “authoritarian” by members of the public, because of the steps taken to combat the virus. He noted that it’s unfortunate that science “has been lumped into politics.”

Here’s the video:

Fauci is correct, this has been lumped into politics, but perhaps not in the way that he thinks.

The people who run our politics don’t seem to live by the rules of “do what you’re told.”

Our leaders seem to do pretty much whatever they want to do.

Does everyone remember when they told us we only needed two weeks to flatten the curve?

That was in March.

    pretty much what i said, the first time i heard about this idiocy, although there might have been a few adjectives involved… 😎

    i was trying to deride which song was more appropriate to make the point clearer to His Idiocy, then decided they both were. NSFW, of course.

      Leftist Stasi Media Scolds Conservatives for Escaping the Censorship of the Sites They Control With a Stalin-Like Iron Grip
      Conservatives are snowflakes for opposing censorship, blacklisting, and scalp-hunting, the Stasi Media is now saying.

      Parler, MeWe, Rumble, and Gab are blowing up in subscriptions.
      It used to be that standing against censorship was noble, but the legacy news media have now decided there’s something sinister about this wave of tech refugees seeking a better, more honest, place to call home.

      A USA Today story imputes selfish and sinister motives to the sudden popularity of these new social media platforms.

      Conservatives increasingly are congregating on social media outlets designed specifically for people who think like them.
      Without irony, people observing the exodus claim it must be because conservatives want to “stay in their own echo chambers,” and surely there�s truth to wanting to be with like-minded people. That’s why the Left loves legacy social media. They run it, contour content to their way of thinking, and censor, report, and hector people who don’t think like them….

      With no self-reflection, a reporter at USA Today constructs a narrative about the exodus claiming it’s all conservatives’ fault because they�re closed-minded and extremist….

      USA Today reports that Parler was the most downloaded app on Tuesday. Their user base has nearly doubled in a week. A Facebook group urging people to leave the social site on November 13 has nearly half a million members.

Well folks this is what 80 million (cough cough) voted for. Little lemmings who want their hand held by Uncle Sugar for free Health Care, free college and possibly a check.

You gotta take the bad with the good shit for brains.

Why isn’t this Hillary licking traitor in jail already?

    you don’t put traitors in jail: you throw a rope over a traffic light, tie the other end off, put their head inside a noose, and kick the bucket out from under them…

    the coming civil was isn’t going to be pretty, but they have ignored the soap box and corrupted both the jury box and the ballot box.

    if the steal is allowed to stand, the cartridge box is the only one left. i really don’t want it to come to that, but i’m not the one doing the things that will cause it.

Btw……

GOP Flips 12 House Seats So Far…

But we’re supposed to believe that in the midst of all this, Biden won?

Weasel Zippers

    The Epoch Times has some good coverage of the actions being taken to contest the various frauds

    Flipping house seats is completely consistent with a Biden win, if that’s what ends up happening. It just means his support was concentrated. Or that some people voted for him but not their local Democrat.

      tphillip in reply to Milhouse. | November 14, 2020 at 7:00 pm

      How so? And please show your work. Decreeing it from atop your roof isn’t actual evidence.

      The world awaits your intellectual brilliance.

        Milhouse in reply to tphillip. | November 15, 2020 at 1:20 am

        tphillip, are you still on drugs? I just said how so. If Biden wins while house seats flip R, it just means his support was concentrated, and/or that some people voted for him but not their local Democrat. That is neither work nor a decree, it’s plain ordinary reasoning, something you seem completely incapable of.

          The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Milhouse. | November 15, 2020 at 11:17 am

          Downticking you is great sport among many on here. I am in disagreement with you pretty often.

          But, at the same time I find your arguments well-presented. You avoid being vulgar. That alone is a pleasant feature.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital. | November 15, 2020 at 4:35 pm

    Re-read.

    Biden does not have that to do with it.

Why7 does anybody even listen to this cretin. He has proven that he is nothing but a political hack who has been all over the map on Covid responses and now wants us to follow him off another cliff. Remember, “not going to be a problem”, “masks don’t work”, “masks are essential”, “lockdowns are critical”, “lockdowns are of limited value”, “lockdowns might be necessary’, “avoid contact between unknown people at all costs”, “having sex with a stranger is fine”, and on and on and on, ad infinitum. Would anyone, in their right mind, go to this man for medical advice for anything?

I am totally amazed that almost all of the media is ignoring the fraudulent activities in the recent election and are spending sssooo much time on COVID BS. Are all these people idiots? Are they all anti-Trumpers? Are they all in the pocket of the Elite Establishment? Are there any independent journalists left? What gives????

    You are not understanding the information bubble so many people are stuck in, willingly or not.

    Fauci is a useful idiot to his handlers, and he is believed by people stuck in the bubble.

    Soros has been wildly successful, doing what hitler, mao.and stalin could only dream of: destroying the US.

      People are not stuck in an information bubble. They are stuck in a terror bubble. Supposedly intelligent, well-educated people are overcome by an irrational fear of disease. WE saw it in the Measles scare two years ago. Even many writers for this blog seemingly accept any information put forth about this or any other virus as the truth, unless the information suggests that the virus is not dangerous.

      Of course, it could also be that these people push these narratives to benefit the pharmaceutical industry for their own purposes. We may never know.

    randian in reply to Mac45. | November 14, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    Covid is a distraction from the election fraud. Keep ramping up the case counts, which increasingly look fabricated because there’s no evidence that the volume of people required to match them are actually going to testing centers.

      txvet2 in reply to randian. | November 14, 2020 at 5:25 pm

      They don’t necessarily have to go to testing centers. I had a routine checkup done yesterday and they said they are going to do a COVID check along with the other blood work. As far as I know any positive tests are reported.

    henrybowman in reply to Mac45. | November 14, 2020 at 6:39 pm

    “not going to be a problem”, “masks don’t work”, “masks are essential”, “lockdowns are critical”, “lockdowns are of limited value”, “lockdowns might be necessary’, “avoid contact between unknown people at all costs”, “having sex with a stranger is fine”

Looking for the “Do Vat Ve Say!!!!!” clause in the Constitution. Not seeing it. Also not seeing the “Void in Case of Virus” clause.

Fauci, his science buddies and the political class flushed all credibility down the toilet months ago, There were ever changing stories with no reasonable explanations or buy in is a perfect example.
That photo of Fauci sitting in the stands of a Washington Nationals baseball game with his mask below his face was a powerful picture and not in a good way. Besides the mask wearing, he was showing his privilege while millions were locked out of the ability to attend an event.
Only admonishing one groups assembly while other groups got a free pass and received encouragement.

    SOME of the science class flushed down credibility, the ones who don’t like being censored. Those who are true to science are risking everything to get the truth out there.

I had one of my rare visits to my doctor yesterday. I’m still struck by the signs on the door saying, essentially, if you’re not sick, wear a mask, and if you are sick, we don’t want to see you.

    Whitewall in reply to txvet2. | November 14, 2020 at 12:39 pm

    Go to see a vet instead maybe?

      txvet2 in reply to Whitewall. | November 14, 2020 at 1:43 pm

      Same signs, but they don’t apply to my cat.

      zennyfan in reply to Whitewall. | November 14, 2020 at 1:55 pm

      That won’t work either. Since this whole “two weeks to flatten the curve” thing started, my vet hasn’t allowed clients to bring their animals inside. We sit in our cars, a tech takes the info, and whisks the animal off to the doc. The animal is returned and the tech — or if they want you to spend a ton of money, a vet — tells you the upshot of the visit. Very unsatisfactory. We all remember the parlor games where people whispered a sentence in the next person’s ear, and how much the sentence changed when it got back to the original speaker. Oh, the vet makes an exception for euthanasia — you and your pet can sit under a tree while it breathes its last.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Whitewall. | November 15, 2020 at 11:18 am

      Fine. See a vet. Any particular service?

      /sorry. I’m in one of my moods.

” “…now is the time to do what you’re told.””

But you keep flip-flopping you insipid weasel so it depends who you are talking to and when. I take that as meaning that I can select which one to believe and I fall in the independent camp, the one that makes America great.

JillJoe (rhymes with dildo) and Fauci are birds of a feather singing the same old song.

I’d call him a horse’s ass, but I know a couple of horses who would be upset at being compared with him in any manner, shape, or form.

I am willing to meet him halfway. As soon as the various members of the political class, media and celebrities are fined/imprisoned/have their employment curtailed as the normal everyday Citizens have had done to them then I will be more than happy to review the ‘science’ to see if I can accommodate Fauchi’s demands.

Until then, Fauchi and every other ‘elite’ can pound sand.

Time for Dr. Fauci to go f–k himself.

Kristi Noem for 2024. A politician who believes in freedom.

It’s a pity we can’t vote the Communists out of office. Not that the GOPe would provide much relief.

    Too much of the GOP has been bought off. To try and resurrect it is like trying to resurrect CNN with Trump as one anchor.

    It’s a condemnened organization, and we need to starve it out of existence, replacing it with anything Trump.

    History will show Trump to have been Paul Revere and George Washington combined.

I still haven’t met anyone who has had it. All of their statistics are meaningless raw numbers pulled out of context. I haven’t plotted the age-frequency histogram for WuFlu vs normal deaths but looking at the raw numbers for Oregon tells me that the mean will be at or slightly higher for Wu-Flu, strongly suggesting that WuFlu was merely coincidental for the death and not causal. The number of deaths where WuFlu was causal is probably about 10% of what is being reported, so 23K vs 230K, and since 3M people have died in the US in the last 9 months, that puts Covid down under 1% of the deaths

    Both my brother and sister in law had SOMETHING, and several months later are still weakened. One is 76, the other 72 and has been through some brutal medical stuff including recovery from stage 4 colon cancer. (Still “intact”, thank goodness.).

    cktheman in reply to MajorWood. | November 14, 2020 at 3:47 pm

    I did. My middle son as well, and we were both brutally sick for 10 days – just short of going to the hospital at the end when the symptoms just stopped out of nowhere. I had a positive test (for what it is worth) and he did not get tested, although a number of his friends who were sick did receive positive tests. The other 3 members of my household did not have any major symptoms (daughter lost sense of smell for two days, wife and oldest son had a milld cough).

    Milhouse in reply to MajorWood. | November 14, 2020 at 7:03 pm

    Here in NYC I don’t think I know anyone who didn’t know someone who died. Friends, relatives. The death rate back in March was much higher than it’s ever been, so it can’t just be coincidence and attributing deaths from other causes to the Wuhan virus. Of course that was when they were putting people on ventilators and blowing their lungs out.

This corrupt, clownish opportunist’s advice is worth no more than anyone’s grandmothers’ – if that.

This is a scummy little man who has happily sold out our country for personal gain and vanity.

He noted that it’s unfortunate that science “has been lumped into politics.”

If he thinks that’s unfortunate he should stop doing it.

Fauci is an apostate Catholic and follows the God of Biden and Cuomo. As a result of his empathy for the AIDS afflicted and pursuit of a fetal stem cell solution to it, Anthony gave tacit approval to abortion. It is then that he contracted his epedemiological masterpiece; controlitis

“…do what you’re told./i>

Another way to say “Time to heel.

Just another instance of the Italian genius for governance and civil liberties.

Fauci: GFY

The Friendly Grizzly | November 14, 2020 at 4:17 pm

Dr. Fauci: we are not Europeans.

If obama, biden and clinton at the end of a rope is the main course, fauci dangling from one would be an appetizer.

I think we’re all getting hungry, and hungrier, and hungrier…

A doctor who goes to our church is an Endocrinologist. I have been entertained by her arguing with people in the parking lot who wear masks while driving alone.

Actually Fauci, it’s time for you to sod off, you supercilious shmuck. The most dangerous place in DC is between you and a microphone and TV camera.

“I can understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told.”

Nuts.

The attitude of Fauci–the faker who has been all over the place in his recommendations–is typical of our self-proclaimed elite–shot up and obey your betters.
