(FreedomBeacon.com)- Following the announcement that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had approved the Pfizer COVID vaccine, Dr. Anthony Fauci immediately hopped onto his news outlet of choice – CNN – to tell the country that it’s time for vaccine mandates to be implemented nationally.
Speaking to controversial “news” anchor Anderson Cooper, Fauci complained that there is a solid 30% of the American public who are “not anti-vax” but who were waiting until they felt that there was a “real stamp of approval” on the vaccine. He then claimed that the official approval of the vaccine by the FDA should deliver that stamp of approval.
Which is…half true. Technically the vaccine has been approved, but that doesn’t mean people will be rushing out to take it. Given just how dishonest Fauci and other high profile public health officials have been throughout this pandemic, it hardly seems likely that skeptical people will immediately trust those same public health officials who have overseen this eventual FDA approval.
"It's up to us," Dr. Anthony Fauci says about the effort to control Covid-19.

Fauci also effectively blackmailed those remaining Americans who don’t want the vaccine, saying that they will “give a lot of incentive and backing” for many organizations, institutions, and places of employment to implement new vaccine mandates. He said that some of the biggest corporations in the country will be coming forward with mandates and that they will become normal.
He then had the audacity to claim that he does “respect people’s freedom” – which he doesn’t. Unless, of course, he means their freedom to not take the vaccine and be unable to work for the rest of their lives.
He justified that statement by saying that things are different when there is a “public health crisis” – an issue that is so subjective that a comment like that is genuinely scary.
How about obesity? How about when the Democrats start saying Republicans are mentally unwell, and that it’s a public health crisis that needs to be deal with?
This is one big slippery slope…and one that Fauci won’t get off.
