Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint

Fauci is hopping mad about the courts

Posted by M. C. on April 23, 2022

Not everyone is happy that we’re not wearing masks on airplanes anymore.

Some people are saying it’s too risky to take the masks off. But that means they’re assuming the masks do anything in the first place, and they clearly don’t. We’ve observed the uselessness of masks for a very long time now. That anyone at all is still clinging to them is astonishing.

In case you’d like to buttress your own case against them, here is the definitive masks-don’t-work episode of the Tom Woods Show:
The Fauci response to the decision is worth hearing, because it says so much:

“[I’m] both surprised and disappointed, because those types of things really are the purview of the CDC. This is a public-health issue. And for a court to come in — and if you look at the rationale for that it really is not particularly firm. And we are concerned about that, about courts getting involved in things that are unequivocally public-health decisions. This is a CDC issue. It should not have been a court issue.”

We already knew that’s how Fauci felt about restraints on him or on “public health” at large, but it’s refreshing to hear him state it so clearly.

We can’t have legal recourse against these people because they’re looking out for what’s best for us.

This is how every dictator speaks. Dictators rarely say: “I’m ruling over you because I’m an evil bastard.”

Not to mention: so-called public-health experts have been embarrassingly wrong about masks again and again. Their so-called studies amount to isolating a narrow period of time in which a masked area had better results than an unmasked area. But when you zoom out and look at the entire Covid period we’ve lived through, that pattern no longer holds. They are trying to snow the public. There is no other explanation for behavior like that.

Even someone like CNN medical commentator Leana Wen, who went so far as to favor mandatory vaccination for interstate travel, has said that cloth masks — which Dr. Fauci still defends — are nothing more than facial decoration. But we’re supposed to believe that enough unanimity exists on masks that challenging them is unthinkable?

Fauci’s star keeps fading, as fewer and fewer people care about his recommendations.

It’s about blankety-blank time.

If you took my advice, on the other hand, then (1) you’ve avoided masks because you know they’re useless, and (2) you spent a little time yesterday away from the crazies who hate you and think nothing of ruining your life, and instead did something enriching: you learned about how to create the kind of membership business I myself have three of, and which are an excellent way to create a comfortable side hustle for yourself for when the SOBs come after you again.

For those of you who may not have time for a three-day workshop on the subject, my old podcast guest Stu McLaren is offering a one-session summary version this weekend.
