Wednesday, during an interview that aired on Newsmax TV, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) attacked National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci’s approach to promoting universal vaccinations, which he deemed “one-size-fits-all.”
Paul told Newsmax TV’s Emerald Robinson that Fauci views “regular people” as not smart enough to make their own decisions and was rooted in elitism.
“I really don’t think it’s him making money personally,” he said. “I think it’s this — it’s one-size-fits-all and his idea that the regular people aren’t smart enough to make these regular decisions. So he just wants to treat everybody the same. The one-size-fits-all strategy that everybody must get vaccinated ignores the science. It’s mostly that he’s not telling the truth once again because he is an elitist, and he thinks we can’t handle the truth. In private, he said in emails last spring that most of the masks you can get over the counter don’t work because the virus particles are too small and go right through them. That’s still true. They don’t work. There’s no value. Yet, we’re mandating them by law because — and this is where I really have a disagreement with Fauci, one he’s not telling the truth, and promulgating bad science, pseudoscience.”
“So your eighth grade running the mile or half-mile wearing the mask outside is probably not going to be good for their health, it’s not comfortable, and there’s no science to say you’re preventing disease,” Paul continued. “It’s really just a disservice to the public. The main thing about the mask when he said they didn’t work at all was he didn’t want people buying the N95 masks and the people in the hospital, the doctors not having enough. So he just admits that he lied, but it was a lie for our own good, supposedly.”
During an interview on the latest episode of Newsmax TV’s “The Gorka Reality Check,” Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow reacted to NBC News anchor Lester Holt calling fairness “overrated,” connecting it to the original research in his book, , scheduled for release on May 18.
Marlow pointed out that the “media has always been on one side” to “fit their agenda.”
He added now the media are “owning up to the fact that they’re going to disenfranchise half the country.”
“I feel like I’m actually … in the time machine, Dr. G., because I know folks like you and I have thought that the mainstream media had dispensed with the idea of fairness well over a decade ago. Now, they’re just starting to admit that’s the whole plan,” Marlow told host Sebastian Gorka. “I think that if you are watching establishment media, and you have any concept of what they’re doing is giving equal weight to both sides, just look at the analyses Newsbusters and the Media Research Center have been doing for the better part of the last two decades. They’ve been showing every single major issue facing the country. The media has always been on one side. They always shave the coverage to fit their agenda. They’re accelerating at that level, and now they’re finally, I guess, owning up to the fact that they’re going to disenfranchise half the country.”
“They’re trying to portray people with normative conservative viewpoints as violence. In the meantime, they’re ignoring widespread left-wing violence,” he lamented.
