Fauci asks people to ‘put aside’ concerns of personal liberty and recognize ‘common enemy’ of COVID-19

The Hill – by Joseph Choi

Chief White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci on Sunday called on vaccine-hesitant individuals to “put aside” their concerns about personal liberty and recognize the “common enemy” of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“You have to get the overwhelming proportion of people vaccinated, but you also have to do mitigation, and that gets to the controversial issue of mask wearing, and the mandating of things. Mandating vaccines, for example, for teachers and … personnel in the school,” Fauci said while appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Fauci reiterated to guest host Nancy Cordes that although breakthrough cases are being seen in vaccinated individuals, it is the unvaccinated who are becoming seriously ill and dying.

“It’s the unvaccinated that are doing that, so we have a lot of tasks. We’ve got to do mitigation. Put aside all of these issues of concern about liberties and personal liberties and realize we have a common enemy and that common enemy is the virus,” Fauci said. “And we really have to go together to get on top of this. Otherwise, we’re going to continue to suffer as we’re seeing right now.”

Cordes also asked Fauci if individuals eligible for a third booster shot of a COVID-19 vaccine should get a Moderna shot, regardless of their initials doses, noting a recent a study that found Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine is more effect than Pfizer’s at stopping the delta variant.

Fauci, however, disagreed with that suggestion.

“First of all, it’s a preprint study, It hasn’t been fully peer-reviewed and I don’t doubt what they’re seeing, but there are a lot of confounding variables,” he said.

  1. It only came out that way. What he rally meant to say was, “Bow down, surrender, and let us kill you.”

    “It is incredible that this must be said, but the obvious seems to escape politicized academics, so we must state the obvious: Genocide is deliberate; it is premeditated. There is no genocide without premeditation. The murders are not unfortunate coincidences. This is why it is called ‘mass MURDER’ and not ‘mass MANSLAUGHTER.’”

    “Isolation and the patient repetition of stimuli are required to tame wild animals… The totalitarians have followed this rule. They know that they can condition their political victims most quickly if they are kept in isolation.”

    “This is no pandemic, it is a long-planned coup meant as war against all of society. It is the plot of eugenicists and murderers whose intent is to depopulate the earth, while building a society made up of slaves controlled by a technocratic master class.”
