Fauci's plea 'Wear a mask' tops list of 2020 notable quotes

A plea from Dr. Anthony Fauci for people to “wear a mask” to slow the spread of the coronavirus tops a Yale Law School librarian’s list of the most notable quotes of 2020

The list assembled by Fred Shapiro, an associate director at the library, is an annual update to “The Yale Book of Quotations,” which was first published in 2006.

Shapiro said he picks quotes that are not necessarily admirable or eloquent, but rather because they are famous or particularly revealing of the spirit of the times.

  1. On the March episode of CBS 60 Minutes, Fauci said "I don't want to see everyone out there wearing masks". Fauci politicizes science, albeit junk science. Real science tells us the truth, and it cannot be hidden. Jacobson vs Mass was in 1905, shortly after the concept of the 'germ theory of disease' was arrived at. Many use this case for forcing injections on the population, although(1) it pertained to a localized area and (2) Knowledge of the operation of the human body and immune system in 1905 was marginal. Today we know a lot more, but a segment of the medical/pharma go out of their way to maintain an antiquated paradigm for reasons of profit, using fear as a motivator, and suppress the current state of knowledge. Jacobson vs Mass didn't address biologically devastating genetically engineered solutions, which produce irreversible damage and distortion of the bodies immune system, trying to convince people that they need another 'function', despite that the immune system already has that 'function' with the presence of the B and T-cell memory, which allows reproduction of anti-bodies needed from memory of previous encounters. The pharma companies, with the new 'vaccines' are attempting to 'take over' that 'function' when it does NOT have to be done. Insofar as coronaviruses are concerned there are already FDA sanctioned Hydrochloroquine, and The FDA-approved Drug Ivermectin Inhibits the Replication of SARS-CoV-2 but Nobody Talks About It because Pharma wants to profit from the injection of mRNA vaccines, which have many serious issues. They did something like this in 2007 with the Whooping Cough 'pandemic', a fiasco which lasted 8 months, until they had to admit that the PCR test was producing false positives because of the large cycle threshold .... something which drives the current FALSE 'covid-19' narrative. It's all false and based on corruption and greed. You could give these people all the wealth and power in the universe and it still wouldn't be enough for them .... they are simplistic, corrupt and immature on a higher level.

  2. What idiot put the Keebler Elf in charge of our healthcare? Wasn't he the one in charge of putting the fudge on the butter cookies?

  3. and, Quote #6 never happened. It was magically 'produced' as a form of political influence when the most recent SCOTUS judge was recommended for the court.

  4. That disgusting little bastard should be tried as a traitor and executed. (as a traitor not just to America but to all the world's peoples).

  5. Just look at him. Doesn't he really look like a test rat back in the thirties? They invented him only like pinocchio with a lie his ears keep growing. Noticed this since March
