Senator Rand Paul has publicly lashed Anthony Fauci for thousands of Covid-19 deaths. He blamed the deaths on Dr. Fauci’s biases towards the Covid-19 vaccine.
“I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now from COVID because [Fauci’s] deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics,” Paul, who is also a physician, said in an interview.
Senator Paul stated that Fauci “has a long history of a bias toward vaccines, stretching back to his work on AIDS.”
“I think Fauci is of the philosophy that vaccines are incredibly successful and are the way to go versus therapeutics, for example. So with regard to AIDS, he was involved as the AIDS epidemic came up, he wanted to develop a vaccine,” he continued in the interview with his father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul.
“There’s nothing wrong with that. He wanted to develop a vaccine. Vaccines can be great for polio or smallpox or wonderful. It didn’t actually work for AIDS.”
Rand Paul had previously termed monoclonal antibodies as “one of the most promising treatments for the virus” but the procedure and antibody treatment was plagued by “government bureaucrats.”
“Recent data showed that monoclonal antibody treatment cuts the risk of death and hospitalization by 70% in high-risk patients and reduces the chance of infection among a household by 80%,” Paul stated earlier in September.
“Monoclonal antibodies have only just begun to be mentioned by the mainstream media, and misinformation still plagues government bureaucrats when discussing this scientifically-backed treatment.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci stated on Monday that “implementation will begin of the federal requirement for vaccines for domestic flights in order to increase the number of vaccinated people in the US.”
“That’s another incentive to get more people vaccinated,” he said during an appearance on television. “If you want to do that with domestic flights, I think that’s something that seriously should be considered.”
Public spats between Senator Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci are not new and both have a history of sparring with each other since the beginning of the pandemic.
“The reason he [Fauci] won’t bring up natural immunity is that it foils his plans to get everybody possible vaccinated. He thinks it might slow down vaccination. And I’m for people getting vaccinated, particularly people at risk, but the thing is, if you ignore naturally acquired immunity then you’re saying we don’t have enough people, you have to force it on younger people,” Paul said earlier in October.
