Dr. Anthony Fauci is a case study in the danger of handing a career bureaucrat an ounce of power. 

During his tenure, Dr. Fauci disseminated a number of lies and distortions to advance the causes of the Left while shuttering businesses and spreading panic. 

But Rand Paul just silenced Anthony Fauci with this damning comparison. 

Anthony Fauci caused irreparable harm to millions of Americans

From the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci latched on to as much power as possible and created a panic that arguably continues to this day. 

As a result of his misguidance, millions of Americans are afraid to leave their homes without being triple-masked. 

But there are some in Washington, D.C., willing to stand up for the truth. 

One such person is Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who just put Dr. Fauci in his place on national television. 

Last Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s Jesse Watters Primetime, Senator Rand Paul spoke with host Jesse Watters about what might be next for Dr. Fauci. 

Senator Paul was asked by host Jesse Watters, “When you see this guy who is supposed to be kind of a bipartisan American scientist cry when a Democrat is inaugurated, does that change your opinion of him?” 

Senator Paul answered with, “Well, I just couldn’t help but think — wonder what kind of tears he was shedding during the Trump administration, during the Trump inauguration? No, he’s an obvious partisan. And the thing is, he was in office too long. I wrote a piece that came out, I believe, on Fox News today, comparing him to J. Edgar Hoover, who was in office the same period of time and became so powerful that he weaponized the FBI.”

He added that “this guy weaponized the NIAID. He weaponized it to get his supporters. If you would write a paper that supported his position, like four of these scientists did, at first they said, my goodness, it came from a lab, and then all of a sudden they changed their mind.”

In conclusion, Senator Paul said “they got more money. They got more friends. He used that grant-making authority to get it, and he weaponized the government to get what he wanted, and that was the cover-up.”

Americans should think twice before giving unelected officials power

Over the course of American history, pandemics have come and gone, but never before has an unelected official been granted as much power as Dr. Fauci. 

As Rand Paul pointed out, Dr. Fauci is a partisan who had a vested interest in making Donald Trump look bad. 

The damage that Dr. Fauci did to America is irreparable and the effects of the lockdowns he recommended may never be fully realized. 

The United States must be very careful before handing power over to a petty little tyrant like Anthony Fauci in the future.
