Former Congressman Ron Paul, the Libertarian Party’s 1988 presidential nominee whose 2008 and 2012 Republican presidential campaigns brought notice to the libertarian movement, called for the dismissal of Dr. Anthony Fauci from the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Paul made the comments yesterday during his YouTube show The Ron Paul Liberty Report.
See the video below:
Paul believes officials like Fauci intentionally overhyped the scale of the pandemic, including predictions about the number of deaths (down to 60,000 from 240,000) to claim the lower numbers were the result of their actions. Moreover, he feels Fauci has emphasized the impending return of the coronavirus in the Fall so the populace will be conditioned to give up civil liberties willfully since the previous measures worked.
To curb misinformation, Paul suggests the firing of Fauci. He does not believe this will occur because of Fauci’s heavy connections in the CDC Foundation, which billionaire Bill Gates owns and from which, Paul believes, Fauci benefits monetarily. Therefore, he calls for a different kind of firing:
The people have to fire him. They have to fire him by saying he’s a fraud. He doesn’t give us any good information. They didn’t save us from ourselves! His plan to give us total control over everybody . . . when things are getting back to normal, yes, people can return to work, and they do things, go to the golf course, if you get the stamp of approval. Your liberties are there if you get the proper stamp of approval from the government and say that you’re free of spreading any disease. But as this one goes away they’ll come up with another one. It’s an excuse to have total control over the people. But I think the most important thing is people need to stop listening to him. If they’re going to listen to him, listen to him critically. What is he saying? What are other people saying?
Paul says people should listen to him and others like him because he approaches the coronavirus pandemic from the perspective of liberty.
