(Un)shocking News: Dr. Fauci is a Partisan Hack, not a Respected Scientist or Doctor
Like many other conservatives, I’ve long been skeptical of that exalted hero of the Covid fearmongers, Dr. Anthony Fauci. You know, the guy who has failed up his whole life and then spent the last year lying to us about everything from masks to herd immunity? Well, it turns out that that fraud of a doctor is also mainly a politician, not a man seriously focused on medicine. Dr. Fauci is a political hack that Trump should have fired on the first day.
There are many problems with the man, and all of them point to it being true that Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack rather than an unbiased scientist, simply trying to do his job. He cares about politics and, as recent events have shown, helping out one side- the side that supports technocratic authoritarianism.
Problem 1: He Chose Politics as a Vocation, Not Medicine
For one, if Fauci were any good at what he does, he would be working in private industry. But he never has. That’s not exactly a good sign and points to his inclination for politics rather than science or medicine. Fauci is a politician, not a doctor. He just uses the “Dr.” in front of his name as cover.
This is, admittedly, a small point in the grand scheme of things. Many scientists choose to work for agencies rather than private industry. I disagree with that decision, but it would be unfair to say that Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack simply because he chose medical politics as a vocation rather than medicine.
However, that decision is indicative of his worldview. He doesn’t want to work on unbiased scientific projects, the only purpose of which is to discover the truth and/or a solution to a problem. He wants to be a popular politician.
Problem 2: Fauci Has Never Succeeded, Yet He Keeps Advancing
Then, there’s what the Federalist reported about Dr. Fauci’s record of success, or really the lack thereof. As that outlet said:
“Fauci had poured [$1.8 billion] into defense from bioterrorist attacks over the preceding two years. More than half of those funds were devoted to anthrax and smallpox alone. In 2004, Fauci launched the $5.6 billion “Project Bioshield,” the National Institutes of Health’s biggest outlay for a single research issue until then.
Some microbiology researchers at the time, however, according to the journal Nature, were concerned that Fauci’s actions would ultimately “distort priorities in infectious-disease research, sucking money away from work to understand and counter natural disease outbreaks that ultimately pose a greater threat to public health.” The 2003 Nature article cited a Stanford University microbiologist saying “that diseases such as influenza and other respiratory-tract infections routinely kill far more people than would die in a bioterrorist attack, and therefore deserve a greater share of the NIAID budget.”
The criticism turned out to be warranted. In 2007, after spending billions under the opposite premise, Fauci admitted that “at the end of the day, you’re not going to kill as many people [with an anthrax attack] as you would if you blasted off a couple of car bombs in Times Square.” His anthrax vaccine effort had failed.
The anthrax vaccine failure followed on the heels of Fauci’s controversial leadership of the nation’s AIDS response in the 1980s and ‘90s. According to “Good Intentions,” a 1990 book by investigative author and innovation expert Bruce Nussbaum, Fauci started his career as “a lackluster scientist,” who “found his true vocation—empire building” when he took the reins at NIAID in 1984.”
In other words, Fauci has never succeeded. He has only failed, and failed badly. He’s wasted billions of taxpayer dollars on boondoggles, yet keeps advancing. Why? Because Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack. He knows how to choose problems that D.C. powerbrokers care about, such as AIDS and anthrax, and then use his affiliation with some effort to solve those problems to advance his career, however unsuccessful he might have been.

Problem 3: How Fauci Treated Trump
The third reason why Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack is that he attacked Trump constantly over 2020. Whenever Trump said something about Covid, from masks to Hydroxycloriquine, Fauci publicly contradicted him and did his best to make Trump look bad.
That wasn’t because Fauci cared about solving the pandemic in a way that balanced the probable costs of each approach. Were that the case, he would have worked with President Trump to develop a solution that minimized both the human and economic cost.
But Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack. He didn’t want a solution, he wanted power to be in his hands and the hands of the Democrats. So, to make that happen, he made himself a public hero while constantly slighting Trump. When it was popular to do so, he pushed for policies like wide-ranging, tyrannical lockdowns, the same lockdowns that crushed the economy and, with it, Trump’s ability to win the election. Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack that did his best to use the Covid response to hurt Trump and help the Democrats win.
Issue 4: Fauci’s Recent Statements Show Which Side He Is On
The most damning evidence of the fact that Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack is what he said during his January 21st press conference. Here is what he said:
“Obviously, I don’t want to be going back over history, but it was very clear that there were things that were said, be it regarding things like hydroxychloroquine and other things like that, that really was uncomfortable because they were not based on scientific fact…
“The idea that you can get up here [with Biden in charge] and talk about what you know, what the evidence, what the science is and know that’s it, let the science speak. It is somewhat of a liberating feeling.”
Here’s the video if you want to watch the full conference:
Dr. Fauci is a political hack. He used the press conference as a way to slander Trump and boost Biden. He wants the Democrats, the party of technocracy, to be in charge so that they empower ineffective bureaucrats like him.
But that’s not all he said. In addition to using the opportunity to strike at Trump like the slippery viper he is, he also stated recently that Covid cases in the US are plateauing.
That’s good, if true, but it’s also obviously meant to help Biden. Are things really so different now than they were when Trump was in office?
They’re not. They’ve been the exact same for months now. But no one would say so because Dr. Fauci is a partisan hack that was holding off on being optimistic until doing so would help the Democrats. All that has changed is that now Fauci’s favored party is power, so the smug technocrat feels secure in his position.
