The Simple Fact: Dr. Fauci Lied about Masks and He Lied about Herd Immunity
Dr. Fauci, the media darling of the Covid pandemic, is nothing more than a liar and politically-minded bureaucrat. He acts like he is trying to save America, yet all he does is bend to the political winds of the time.
When lockdowns are popular, he supports them. If they fall from grace, he cautions against them. He was against masks, then he wasn’t. He set one number for herd immunity, then he changed it. Every statement he has made he has gone back on, and often he changes his mind multiple times!
But the worst instances of that flip-flopping are related to masks and herd immunity. Dr. Fauci lied about masks and now he’s lying about herd immunity.
This article will cover what Dr. Fauci has said about both topics, when Fauci lied about masks, when Fauci lied about herd immunity, and why he lied about those crucial issues.

When Fauci Lied about Mask: What He Said and Why
Here’s what Fauci originally said about masks in a March 8th interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes”:
“Right. Now people should not be walk— there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.
And often there are unintended consequences. People keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”
Here’s the video of him saying that:
That was the truth about whether it helps to wear a mask. Most science holds that to be true, including a recent Dutch study about the efficacy of masks. But then, starting in April, the CDC started to change its tune about masks and said that we should wear them. Because of that messaging change, in June, during another interview, Fauci lied about masks. Here is what he said:
“When you have crowds of people together and you have the lack of wearing a mask that increases the risk of there being transmissibility. I have no doubt about that. “When we see that not happening, there is a concern that that may actually propagate the further spread of infection.”
He did a complete 180. The science on masks didn’t change in those few short months. Either they worked in March or they didn’t, and, considering that they’ve been around for a long time, that would have been known by then.
What is so horrendous about this is that, before Fauci lied about masks in June, he knew the truth and was willing to state it openly! His original remarks were correct and told Americans what they needed to hear. Masks, while they might make you feel safer, aren’t particularly useful at actually keeping you safer. We might like them to be, but, unless you have an N95 mask, wear it properly, and refrain from touching your face, wearing a mask doesn’t do too much. Like Fauci originally said, you can wear one if you want to, but it won’t do much.
But that position had become unpopular by June. So, in the interest of remaining popular, Dr. Fauci lied about masks to the American public and sparked mask mandates and other horrendous measures that were tyrannical and went against the spirit of liberty and informed risk-taking that has defined American life for so long.
After Fauci Lied about Masks, He Lied about Herd Immunity
That’s not all! Fauci lied about masks, then he started lying about other things, the most egregious of which has to do with herd immunity.
Herd immunity, for those who don’t know, is the idea that once a certain percentage of a population becomes immune to a virus, whether because of a vaccine or past infections, the risk of infection decreases for the rest of the population. As with masks, the science of herd immunity was well-established long before Covid. It has been our basic defense against disease since large groups of humans started living together and transmitting communicable diseases.
Fauci knows that and, despite being a doctor that works for the government rather than private enterprise, would have known about herd immunity before Covid.
That’s why he originally said that about 70% of the population needed to be immune to infection for herd immunity to be established. Between vaccination and past infections, that number is attainable in the near future and fits with the science.
But then Fauci wanted more Americans to get vaccinated. So, like Fauci lied about masks, he lied about herd immunity. In an effort to get more Americans to submit to taking a vaccine they know little about and that was developed far faster than normal vaccines, Fauci “revised” his estimate to 85% of the population needing to be immune for herd immunity to be established. For now, he has said he won’t revise that to 90%.
It would be one thing if new studies or research pointed to a higher percentage of the population needing to be immune for herd immunity to be established. If that were the case, then revising the percentage upward would not be a problem; it would be smart. But that’s not what Fauci gave as his reason for the 15 percentage point change, a change that will lead to a much longer lockdown and restriction period. Here is what he said:
“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent,” Fauci told the Times. “Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.”
He changed his estimate not because of science, but because of political goals. He wants a larger percentage of the population to submit to getting the vaccine, so he lied about what percentage of the population needs to be immune.
Fauci Lied about Masks. He’s Lying about Herd Immunity. How Can Americans Trust His Advice?
I’m stupefied by the fact that Dr. Fauci has remained popular and has remained in his position. He’s a habitual liar that changes his advice based on the political winds of the time. He lied about masks in June because our politicians wanted us to start wearing masks. He is lying about herd immunity. Whatever other issues crop up in the near future, he’ll lie about those too.
America cannot trust Dr. Fauci. Government incompetence is the real pandemic and we need to correct it by getting rid of ineffective and self-centered bureaucrats like Fauci. They lie to us and treat us as guinea pigs, not their fellow countrymen that deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Reclaim your dignity as an American by telling everyone that Fauci lied about masks and will keep lying about every other issue!
