(SNews) – Dr. Anthony Fauci has praised lockdowns as a great tool for forcing the public to comply with the authoritarian agenda of tyrannical governments.
During an appearance at a university virtual event titled, “Pandemic Lessons and Role of Faculty in Pandemic Preparedness with Dr. Anthony Fauci,” the former top federal health official gloated about the effectiveness of lockdowns when trying to force the public to get vaccinated.
During the conversation, Fauci, who recently retired from his roles as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the chief medical advisor to Democrat President Joe Biden, made it clear that he still supports locking down society.
Fauci, who is now affiliated with Georgetown University, hailed lockdowns as a highly effective tool to forcibly “vaccinate” people.
During the long interview, a Wayne State University professor asks Fauci about what he’s learned from his time overseeing a “pandemic response.”
Fauci responded by defending his own actions while pushing false claims about the events during the Covid pandemic.
He also used fear tactics to promote similar authoritarian measures being used again.
Fauci falsely claimed that New York City was overrun with people dying of Covid.
He claimed the city’s hospitals and morgues had “cooler trucks outside because they had no places to put the bodies.”
“You had to have something to immediately shut down the tsunami of infection,” he argued in defense of lockdowns.
“That lockdown was absolutely justified,” Fauci then declared.
“Lockdown has a purpose,” the controversial health official continued.
“One of the purposes, if you don’t have a vaccine, it’s to get more ventilators, get the hospitals better prepared … until you decompress the pressure on the hospitals.”
However, it was Fauci’s next statement that really chills the spine.
He continued by arguing that the public should be locked in their homes until they have all been “vaccinated.”
“If you have a vaccine available, you might want to lock down temporarily so you can get everybody vaccinated,” Fauci asserted, smirking as he spoke.
Fauci made the statement after noting that some people “did not want to get vaccinated.”
Rejecting the idea that lockdowns are a moral question, Fauci insistsed that “lockdowns have a place.”
He then admitted, however, that “they are not a permanent solution.”
As the conversation shifted to other leftist talking points, Fauci continued by declaring that “climate change” is “playing a role” in causing outbreaks.
He then called for an “international commitment to decrease the carbon imprint in society so you don’t have the kinds of crazy weather we’re having in this country.”
Fauci then tried to blame the wildfire tragedy in Maui on “climate change.”
“It’s completely, really amazing what’s happened with climate change,” Fauci concluded regarding the fires.
The comments from Fauci come as corporate media outlets have been ramping up fearmongering reports on Covid in recent weeks.
Mask mandates have also been returning as reports emerge to suggest the Biden administration is planning to bring back Covid lockdowns next month.
As Slay News recently reported, insiders have also been warning that Biden is preparing to declare a “climate emergency.”
By doing so, Biden would give himself emergency powers to enforce “climate lockdowns” and other restrictions on public freedoms.
Fauci may just get his wish after all.
