It’s important to point out, that among many other things, Fauci has repeatedly lied about his stance on masks

He claimed he said masks didn’t work on 3/8 to protect supply for healthcare workers, but also said to “skip” them weeks earlier while saying Covid risk was “minuscule”
If the risk was “minuscule”, why would he say to skip masks to protect supply for healthcare workers? They’d also not have to worry about Covid, considering the “minuscule” risk.

The real answer is that Fauci, accurately, knew that there was no evidence masks work
Once it became politically expedient to change his mind, he did, to go along with the CDC’s evidence-free recommendation. There was never going to be a supply issue of masks that healthcare workers would actually use, based on the CDC recommending cloth masks or bandanas.
Remember, this is a person who’s also claimed that the Trump White House calling out his mistakes was “nonsense” because “there were no mistakes”

That’s simply incompatible with his previous statements. Either he’s lying about mask effectiveness now, or he was lying then
Either way, his blaming of 500,000 deaths on lack of mask wearing is patently absurd, and assuming his views are “correct” now, either partially or mostly his fault considering he was either

1) wrong about masks not working or
2) lied about masks not working
He’s either dangerously incompetent or unaware of the contradictory nature of his own previous statements. Like when he said “we’re not perfect, we did not do everything right” back in August.

Then said he didn’t make any mistakes in February.
It’s extraordinary that we’ve allowed someone like this to run our Covid response.

Demonstrable hypocrisy, dishonesty, ego, ignorance and incompetence.

The complete package!

For much of last year, Georgia was a popular target for media criticism, with outlets like The Atlantic accusing them of experimenting in "human sacrifice"

So I thought I’d check in, and it turns out they’re 23rd in deaths per 100k & right at the national average. Confusing!
But don’t worry, it wasn’t just The Atlantic, CNN’s @ChrisCillizza asked in July just “what the heck” Brian Kemp was doing by not permitting local mask mandates
Chris was following up on this gem from April, saying re-opening the state was a “high-stakes coronavirus gamble”

We’ve heard countless times from media & experts that large maskless gatherings are going to be superspreader events, with no follow up after they’re proven wrong

Well here’s a mass, fully masked gathering on 11/7 in Times Square. Two weeks later, cases in NYC were up 72%

Now, we know why this mass gathering wasn’t criticized by the same CBS correspondent who called Tampa celebrations a “super spreader after party”…this NYC group was, of course, wearing masks, being good followers of The Science™, and supporting an approved political ideology
But here we have a correlation between a large, masked gathering and a huge increase in Covid cases two weeks later. And no one cares.

Why hasn’t this been looked at? Why don’t have we have CDC studies on the impact of masked celebrations in early November and increased spread?

Well everyone. It’s time.

It’s officially been two weeks since the single worst thing that’s ever happened to experts & media…maskless Super Bowl Celebrations

They’ve been wrong SO many times…surely THIS is the time a huge maskless gathering becomes a “superspreader”

This one is just too spectacular to not do a full thread on, so let’s have some fun shall we?

NY Post: “Maskless revelers”

Quelle horreur!

Members of the Mask Religion arguing with me: “No one is saying masks are that effective, they’re only one part of Covid strategy”

Former CDC Director & other experts: “I might…say…this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine”
Current CDC Director: Masks are “one of the most effective tools we have against COVID-19”
Former CDC Director: “Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus”

If you want to know how intellectually dishonest the mask religion is, just imagine their reaction if my graphs showed the opposite of what they do

If similar locations showed a large difference w/masks or if maskless gatherings actually mattered

They’d never stop posting them
Even when the CDC has tried to do the same thing that I do, they’ve had to cherry pick dates to fit their agenda, or specifically ignored the control counties, like in Arizona…or come up with mind boggling, misinformation level criteria like their most recent embarrassment
If masks were so effective, why doesn’t every graph I post look the opposite of the way that it does?

And most importantly, just imagine how the religion would be using them…endlessly…as proof of masks working.

It’s not science, it’s a cult.

Since “re-opening” 8 months ago Los Angeles has tried universal masks, closing dining, a tier system, curfews & a stay at home order

And yet the results have been dramatically worse than Stockholm, despite Stockholm being very high density w/few restrictions & almost no masks
Not only has LA done worse cumulatively, but in the time period where interventions & specifically masks, should make the most difference, the fall/winter surge, they accomplished essentially nothing.

How can this be if masks are so important and effective?
There is simply no logical explanation for why, if masks save lives, deaths in LA should skyrocket despite 10 months of masking with 99% compliance inside and 80% virtue signaling compliance outside, regardless of distancing.
