Scott Atlas Just Hit Back at Fauci – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on October 2, 2020

One thing we can be sure of: under Joe Biden it’ll be all Fauci, all the time, with no dissident voices, and the handful of non-sociopaths we have as governors will have to summon plenty of courage to hold the line.

From the Tom Woods Letter:

Well, this Dr. Scott Atlas is a fighter.

The lockdowners can’t stand him. So they point out that he isn’t an epidemiologist.

No, but (1) he’s simply relaying what the epidemiologists are saying, and any intelligent person can do that; and (2) he is trying to encourage Americans to think about the long-term effects on everyone of the fanaticism over COVID — and is that a concern we were seeing expressed under Fauci? Is there any indication that Fauci recognizes collateral damage from shutdowns at all?

Atlas mentions names — drawn from Harvard, Stanford, and Oxford — that have never been uttered under the Fauci regime and would never have been heard by the American public otherwise. Trump: America First: … Bossie, David N. Best Price: $22.21 Buy New $15.65 (as of 05:38 EDT – Details)

And just the other day, with Laura Ingraham, he hit back at Redfield (of the CDC) and Fauci, pointing out that they’ve been all over the place.

In particular, he made fun of Fauci for suggesting that we really ought to be wearing goggles (remember that?).

He insists that it’s “destructive” to lock down healthy people, that we know who the vulnerable people are, and that “public health officials” have neglected the public-health effects of lockdowns themselves: these problems have “not been given the appropriate consideration by the public health officials who somehow think they have unique expertise,” he says.

Well, it’s about time we have a non-hysteric in public life.

And it’s about time St. Fauci got brought down a few notches. The religious reverence toward the guy is downright creepy, as well as unhelpful.

Oh, and I love that Atlas retweeted this (Kulldorff is from Harvard Medical School), after Dr. Fauci said it was “extraordinarily inappropriate” for Atlas to have contradicted Dr. Redfield at a press conference:

One thing we can be sure of: under Joe Biden it’ll be all Fauci, all the time, with no dissident voices, and the handful of non-sociopaths we have as governors will have to summon plenty of courage to hold the line.

Now, so far on the Tom Woods Show this week I’ve talked to Gret Glyer, whose DonorSee philanthropy app has helped so many people around the world, about how shutdowns are decimating the developing world, and then yesterday I wrote to you about the Rockwell/Woods debate analysis episode.

But I skipped over another important one, with a CEO whom I recently discovered is publicly anti-lockdown (which is unusual, believe it or not).

His rags to riches to rags to riches story may resonate with you, to be sure, but you’ll also be interested in the kind of business he runs — it’s a platform normal people can use to run little online stores. The kind of thing that would have seemed out of science fiction just 30 years ago.

The difference: for these stores you don’t have to take out a $1 million mortgage, stock your shelves with $1 million of merchandise you sit up at night worrying about whether it will sell, etc. This isn’t 1957.

Enjoy:
