You know, as an American we all have the right to question experts and people of authority. So why is it, that respectfully doing so sends liberals over the edge? I suspect it’s because they’re enraged when a Republican is right. Such was the case for Rand Paul who questioned Dr. Anthony Fauci’s stance of the origins of the virus. As it turns out, Paul was right about Fauci in several of his points of concern and that has liberals stomping mad.
During an interview with Sean Hannity, Paul said he receives death threats daily just for questioning Fauci’s authority but adds that he will never stop:
“This week, I’ve had five death threats just for being outspoken on it,” Paul said, adding “I don’t know what the world’s coming to, you can’t ask honest, difficult questions that in the end have proved out that Dr. Fauci was not being honest with us.”
Paul continued “As a repercussion, my family had white powder sent to our house, and five death threats phoned in.”
unphased by the threats, Paul said Friday “There’s been no more prominent scientist in favor of gain-of-function research than Dr. Fauci,” adding “He still hasn’t backed off of that position. He still believes that it’s OK to take animal viruses and make them into super-viruses to infect humans. Even if a pandemic should occur, he says the research is worth it.”
“There’s a host of other scientists in this field and they say it’s not worth it at all, that we haven’t learned anything” Paul added. “All we’ve done is put ourselves at risk.”
“This is a bad one, this has about one percent mortality, 3.5 million people have died, but they’ve been experimenting with some viruses that have 15 percent mortality. That would be 50 million deaths right now,” The Senator further warned, adding “So this kind of research needs to not be funded by the US taxpayer … It’s very, very dangerous.”
You should remember that back in 2017, Paul’s psycho neighbor brutally attacked him as he worked in his front yard. The senator received a broken rib and punctured lung after the fact that put him at a higher risk of COVID-19 complications. After hearing the attack was possibly politically motivated because of Paul’s support of President Trump, Democrats laughed and made fun of his injuries.
“Not one of them I don’t think ever said they were sorry for me being assaulted by someone and having six ribs broken and nearly dying and having my lung removed,” Paul said, adding “We have people on the left who think it’s just hilarious.”
Thanks to the release of Dr. Fauci’s emails, we now know he lied to Paul during the hearing when he claimed that there was no funding sent to the Wuhan lab that benefitted the gain of function research. It’s just sad that knowing the truth doesn’t change anything for liberals as they continue to send Paul death threats for simply asking questions.
