Fauci’s scientific statement “evokes images of the medieval church”

One of the targets of the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr Anthony Fauci in his media appearances throughout the weekend, was Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), who criticized Fauci and his willingness to ignore individual rights and freedoms. .

Paul compared Fauci’s statement that he represented science on Sunday at the medieval church in an appearance on FNC’s “Fox News Primetime” on Monday.

“You know, when a government bureaucrat has the audacity, the arrogance, to say that he represents all science, we should run the other way,” he said. “And it conjures up images of the medieval church, in their repression of science. Science has nothing to do with obeying any government dogma. And you have to understand that most of the topics Fauci talks about are not science. He’s not talking about a study on this or a study on that. He talks about wearing a mask. But when you talk about peer-reviewed mask studies, there was one in Denmark that showed it didn’t work. “

“When you look at all of Sweden, 1.8 million children haven’t worn masks in the past two years. They haven’t had any deaths from COVID,” Paul continued. “And you say, eh Well, have the teachers been infected? Well, it turns out that the teachers are infected at the same rate as the rest of the public, so they haven’t had masks for a year, a year and a half. And it worked. And it’s a whole country. And there’s not really a discussion about it because if you ask it, and it’s really public policy, it’s not science His public policy backed by a certain science But if you question him you somehow question science because he represents all science It’s incredibly arrogant.
