Fauci Whines That America’s ‘Independent Spirit’ Has ‘Hurt Us’ During Pandemic

Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke out on Wednesday to whine that America’s centuries-long tradition of individualism and freedom is making the COVID-19 pandemic worse in this country.

Fauci Slams America’s Individualist History

Fauci was asked by The Washington Post if the increase in cases in the United States is the fault of America’s individualist tradition or President Donald Trump’s refusal to demand national mandates. He responded by saying that the “independent spirit in the United States of people not wanting to comply with public health measures has certainly hurt us a bit.”

Fauci went on to complain that there are people that treat coronavirus like a “hoax.”

“There are people in various parts of the country who still believe that [coronavirus] is a hoax, that it’s fake — even when in their own state the hospitals have been overrun with patients in the hospital beds and in the intensive care unit,” Fauci said.

Fauci Begs Americans To Stay Home For Christmas

Not stopping there, Fauci then pleaded with the American people not to gather for Christmas this year, saying that he and his wife will not even be hosting their adult children for the holidays.

“They are not going to come home … That’s painful. We don’t like that,” he said. “But that’s just one of the things you’re going to have to accept as we go through this unprecedented challenging time.”

Instead of spending this Christmas together, Fauci urged Americans and their families to focus on the importance of future Christmases.

“You try to explain: you’re going to have many more Christmases ahead of you,” he said. “You’ve enjoyed many more Christmases before. Maybe this is a time to just say, ‘This is an unusual situation, it’s not going to last forever.'”

Fauci added that it is “highly likely” the country “will be back to normal by next Christmas.”

“So make the choice and keep yourself and your family healthy so that you’ll have many more Christmases ahead of you,” he said. “That’s the way I would try to reason with them.”

  • Funny how different socialists and conservatives see things. Fauci is blaming "American independent spirit for this plandemic lasting longer than he thinks it should have if everyone had just been sheeple and did what he said. I say this is a plandemic and there is not enough American independent spirit fighting this scamdemic. I do agree with him about this being a "hoax". Socialists needed this to see how much people would obey the government.

  • The evil Dr. Fauci is the problem. Not American Freedom. This man needs to shut up and go back to the lab and figure out what the policy is regarding this disease because all along he has contradicted himself, given false information, directed people to make mistakes, and basically made a complete mess of this pandemic. Why anyone even listens to this fraud at this point I cannot guess. From DAY ONE, Fauci and government officials, with few exceptions, have herded people into closed spaces and lockdowns where 74 PER CENT of all infections occur. Brilliant! He would've helped the situation enormously by mandating people go out to bars, restaurants, and churches, where less than TWO PER CENT of infections occur! What a complete dunce.

  • That individualist spirit and love of freedom is what sets America apart from the rest of the world. Our nation was founded on the idea that an individual could accomplish whatever they wanted and reap the rewards of their efforts, a radical idea in the age of despots and kings who owned all of the land and taxed their people at whatever rate they chose to. It is called the American experiment because it had never been done before, and the result was a nation that thrives on individual effort and accomplishment, to be whatever you want to be. Is there a cost to this freedom? Of course there is, but is the cost worth the freedom? Ask anyone who has served in our armed forces, read what previous generations have sacrificed for the cause of freedom. Yes, this spirit has cost us, but the freedom we enjoy is far more important than the loss of it for ANY reason.

  • This is because most dont know how to wear or take off the mask. If you are touching the front, pulling it down below your nose, or pulling it below your mouth you are 3xlosing yourself to possible virus. You should wash your hands... you should not wear the same mask for over 4 hours...there is more but. As I said every doctor and nurse you might ask one why!
