When announcing his retirement from the post he has held for more than 50 years, Dr. Anthony Fauci declared that he still wants to "inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders as they help prepare the world to face future infectious disease threats."
Twila Brase, RN and president/co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, calls this "unfortunate."
"Dr. Fauci has been a government employee virtually all of his professional life, and so his life and his knowledge is within government bureaucracy," she notes. "The last thing that we need is to have one government bureaucrat who's been so entrenched teaching other people to be that kind of bureaucrat with that kind of power that was on display over the last two and a half years."
President Joe Biden thinks Dr. Fauci has done an excellent job, recently saying, "The United States of America is stronger, more resilient, and healthier because of him."
Brase, however, begs to differ.
From pushing vaccines that do not work and policies that left the elderly dying alone, to saying no to Ivermectin and other life-saving medications, she submits that "it's a good thing for him to leave, given everything that he helped to orchestrate during the pandemic."
Conservative columnist Robert Knight agrees with Brase. Actually, he does not think it is good enough that Dr. Anthony Fauci is stepping down from his position as Joe Biden's chief medical advisor; he says Fauci needs to be held accountable for his actions as well.
"He ought to be prosecuted for the many lies he told, putting people at risk, probably costing lives," Knight told AFN earlier this week. "He more than anyone was responsible for downplaying the effectiveness of therapeutic approaches like Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine that could have saved thousands of lives. When is he going to be held accountable for that?"
As for Dr. Fauci's desire to mentor others, Brase concludes that "the last thing we need" is to have him teaching other people to be the kind of bureaucrat who "does not look at how to help people but has some other agendas at play."
