It has a familiar ring – to those who’ve heard it before.
Rudolf Hess said it of his boss, many years ago. Hitler is Germany – just as Germany is Hitler!
And now, again. Not quite the same but eerily similar.
This man Fauci considers himself “the science” and to question him, personally, is an affront to “the science.” It’s dictatorial umbrage.
How did this man become the oberbefehlshaber of “science”? He was anointed as such – by the Orange Man; by the corporate press (owned by the pharmaceutical companies, among other corporate interests) and by the Orange Man’s selected successor – also owned by the same corporations that own the Orange Man.
They installed him at the tribune and gave him an open microphone. Heil “science” – as embodied in this man and his pronouncements.
“Masks” don’t work – and then wear two.
Never question “the science” – as elaborated by Fauci.
This is the power of the system, which can take an obscure, priggish bureaucrat and transform him into a klieg-lit leader, his every word received with a kind of reverent hysteria. He has spoken! It must be so!
Even when the “science” is suddenly something else. As in the war with Eurasia now being a war with Eastasia, the war with Eurasia never having happened.
Unsere Fauci flattert uns voran!
But one can also hear – if one listens – another tune, echoing an older one about Der Fuhrer’s Face.
One heard it toward the end of the late unpleasantness in Europe, when the man with the funny moustache had lost his charismatic hold on the volk – and was about to lose the war, too.
His power waned as ridicule of him waxed.
And so it may be, with any luck, as regards Fauci. Many still hang on his every word – but not as many as last summer. There is a certain skepticism afoot. Would you buy a used car from this man? Many are thinking twice about his “guidance” – especially as regards injecting themselves (and their kids) with a “vaccine” that Fauci and those he’s fronting for are selling just a bit too hard.
It is causing people to wonder what they might be buying.
Dr. Rand Paul has been magnificent as a palliative measure. Unlike “Dr.” Fauci, Dr. Paul actually practices medicine. He also practices verbal jujitsu, pinning the evil little “Dr.” publicly and painfully.
It has been restorative to watch.
Politicians have meekly deferred to the “sexiest man alive”- who has been able to shut them up by pointing to his name tag. I’m a “Dr.” and thus the “science” and who are you to question me?
It is almost like that scene in the movie, Braveheart – about William Wallace – when Wallace goes to parley with the queen, acting on behalf of Edward I, “longshanks.” The queen’s flunkie begins to speak to her in Latin, assuming that Wallace is an ignorant barbarian who will not be able to understand the conversation. But Wallace knows Latin. And French. And shuts up the flunkie, just like that.
Just as Dr. Paul has shut up the evil little “Dr.” – who cannot shut him up by touching his name tag.
He has made the shadiness of the little “Dr.” apparent – and once that is seen, it is much easier not only to question “the science” – which ought always to be questioned and not be afraid of questioning since science can hold up to questioning, unlike dogma – but to ridicule the creepy little man who thinks he is “the science.”
With any luck, he will soon be something else.
An object of general contempt, one hopes. Criminally charged, one prays.
But no longer “the science.”
