A Funny Thing
So it turns out that Dr. Fauci, whom I have had pegged as a bureaucratic hack and a scientific fraud from day one of the American takeover of the Pandemic that Ate a Planet, was probably directly involved in supporting and funding the research at the Wuhan laboratory that created the virus.
Fauci has inspired critics in some quarters for his role in approving a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan lab in 2015 to engage in related research, which came just a year after the Obama administration issued a moratorium on conducting such research in the U.S.
[Washington Post columnist Josh] Rogin claimed in a book published last month that sources informed him China engaged in that research more aggressively than was previously understood, arguing that it contributed to evidence the Covid-19 pandemic stemmed from the lab in Wuhan.
“The Wuhan Institute of Virology had openly participated in gain-of-function research in partnership with U.S. universities and institutions,” Rogin noted in the book. “But [an] official told me the U.S. government had evidence that Chinese labs were performing gain-of-function research on a much larger scale than was publicly disclosed, meaning they were taking more risks in more labs than anyone outside China was aware of. This insight, in turn, fed into the lab-accident hypothesis in a new and troubling way.”
Rogin expanded on that statement in his interview with Kelly, saying, “Dr. Fauci, the hero of the pandemic, might also have had a role in the research that may have caused the pandemic.”
That explains a whole lot, including why he continues to be the world’s only non-Chinese denier of note regarding the hypothesis that this outbreak did indeed begin in a Wuhan lab. His dirty little power-playing fingers are all over the work that was being done in those labs, which means that much of this whole year of global tyrannical overreach, as well as all the deaths Dr. Fauci loves to pontificate about as though he were a savior, may be tangibly, causally, verifiably, sitting right on his own beady-eyed, pompous little head.
Sometimes life serves up a perfect punchline. I have been saying for months that Dr. Fauci’s eventual legacy, his ultimate obituary, will be all about his role in legitimizing and encouraging the growth of practical totalitarianism in the United States during 2020. It seems I was even more absolutely correct than I realized.
