Apparently the good ‘doctor,’ Tony Fauci, is branching out in his capacity as *president ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden’s Chief Medical Advisor. Now along with spreading all manner of doom and gloom regarding the ‘Chinese Virus’ he’s now put that sizable intellect of his to even better use on a topic that he knows even less about than the ‘Chinese virus.’ This time Fauci has taken it upon himself to identify gun violence as being an issue of public health. This guy is clearly nothing more than a bureaucratic know-nothing willing to label most anything as being an issue of public health.
Anyway it was during one of his routine visits to ‘fake news’ HQ, aka the Communist News Network, aka CNN, during Sunday’s broadcast of “State of the Union,” hosted by resident moron Dana Bash, that Fauci was asked to comment on whether he believes gun violence is a public health emergency. Fauci proceeded to opine about the surge of gun violence in the United States and went on to describe the spike in shootings as being an issue of public health. Perhaps Fauci should simply stick to those things that can be described as actually falling within is purview as a medical ‘professional.’
Fauci said, “Myself, as a public health person, I think you can’t run away from that.” And he went on to say, “When you see people getting killed, I mean, in this last month it’s just been horrifying what’s happened. How can you say that’s not a “public health issue?” Fauci’s comments came just days after a mass shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis resulted in the deaths of at least eight people. And according to data from the Gun Violence Archive there have been 151 mass shootings in 2021 in the U.S. as of Sunday. Frankly that data sounds more than a little suspect to me.
I can only assume that he feels this whole ‘Chinese virus’ thing may finally be winding down thus making it more difficult for him to maintain his celebrity status. So I’m guessing that Tony now thinks that jumping on the anti-gun bandwagon offers him his best chance of being able to continue to justify his existence. But it’s on the issue of gun control that this boob has even less credibility than he has on controlling the ‘Chinese virus.’ It’s obvious he’s become addicted to the spotlight, and what has been all manner of adulation. And all for nothing more than his continuing to fearmonger.
Fauci wants everything considered to be a “public health issue” so he can then proclaim himself to be the expert and continue to be able to dictate our lives. Public health issues would be diseases, whether bacterial, viral, parasitic, etc, whether transmitted by insect or courtesy of the food supply, water, air or bodily fluids. Guns have nothing to do with public health. While guns may be a public safety issue, they are not a public health issue. If Fauci wants to look for the next public health crisis, maybe he should focus on the skyrocketing of STDs taking place in this country.
We’re continually told that gun violence is a public health issue, that ‘climate change’ is a public health issue. That racism is a public health issue as are police shootings, as long as they involve white cops shooting black thugs. In other words, whatever it is that can be used to advance the Democrat radical leftist agenda is said to be a public health issue. Democrats and their many allies in ‘fake news’ media have learned that if you declare something to be a “public health” emergency you can circumvent the normal legislative process to advance your agenda.
I guess when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Of course, Fauci wants to treat this like a public health issue since his claim to fame has to do with dealing with public health. But one of the first tasks in public health is identifying the problem, so might I suggest looking at the human component in all of this? After all, guns don’t kill people, people kill people. And why is that? What makes a human being want to kill another human being? Because they, the murderers, have something terribly wrong with them mentally. No sane person purposely kills another!
And I would agree that mental health is something that more can be done about. But that requires focusing on the PERSON not on some inanimate object. In short, we have a much bigger issue than gun violence, and that would be Fauci himself and his draconian rules regarding all of the idiotic shutdowns that have resulted in millions of lost jobs, millions of lost businesses, shuttered schools, masking, double masking, triple masking, homelessness, bankruptcy, violence in liberal cities going unchecked, loss of personal identity have all led to isolation, depression anger and violence.
Yes suicides and gun violence are up, especially since ‘Creepy Joe’ assumed office and pushed his socialist agenda by releasing criminals without bail, clearing prisons, finger pointing, demonizing certain groups of people dividing our country and open borders, making things that much worse for those without work. It’s no surprise we are seeing more violence. Have you noticed most of the violence and mass shooting are in liberal states, and liberal cities? That most of these shooting are in cities with harsh gun laws and red flag laws? Our current government is THE problem!
Statistically speaking you are more likely to get struck by lightning or to win the lottery then you are to be killed in a mass shooting in the United States, even if you use the extremely narrow definition of a mass shooting as a shooting in which three or more people are killed. There are round 330 million or so citizens in America. Criminals wielding handguns acquired illegally almost exclusively killing other criminals make up less than .01% of the gun owners in the United States but commit the majority of the 8000 homicides by firearms a year in the United States.
Of those 8000 homicides by firearm in the U.S. each year, the majority of the victims were either gang members or those with violent criminal records or members of a household in which such a person is living. Most of this firearm homicide happens in bastions of leftwing lunacy that actually have some of the strictest gun laws in the entire country. It’s in such as Cook County, Chicago, New York City, New York County, New Jersey, Portland, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Detroit, and numerous other areas that have been controlled by the anti-self-defense, antigun far leftists for decades.
According to the NHTSA, seven teenagers die every day, 365 days a year, while using a cellphone while driving. And I have yet to hear Twitter, Facebook or the Democrats talking about that tragedy. I don’t hear the CDC bemoaning that as being some kind of a “public health” crisis. That’s a problem solvable right now, with a zero downside. The truth is we face hundreds of risks every day higher than firearm homicide and that are easier to solve, with little to no downside. Yet we allow ourselves to be distracted by this circus of clowns and their man behind the curtain.
If what Fauci is saying was the truth, then it would seem that the place to start confronting this supposed “public health issue” would be in a place like Chicago. Why not declare Chicago a national disaster area and send every ABC agency at ‘Creepy Joe’s disposal in to deal with it? Well, because Chicago is a deep blue Democrat city and you just don’t do that! So it would seem that the solution to our ‘gun violence’ problem that Fauci envisions is not attacking the broken government that has destroyed minority families and encouraged violent lifestyles.
Fauci’s apparent solution is instead the evisceration of the Second Amendment and the forcible confiscation of lawfully-owned private firearms of his political opponents. “Public Health Crisis” is the newest go around to suspend our Constitutional Rights. With people like Fauci, ‘Creepy Joe’, ‘The Ho’, ‘Mad Maxine’ Waters and AOC making the rules, I now believe our Constitutional rights are now more important than ever before. I once took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. I never thought the ‘domestic’ enemies would come to be more of a threat than the ‘foreign’ ones.
