(PatrioticPost.com)- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of President Biden’s COVID-19 response, has said that he “respectfully” disagrees with the idea of masks being a personal choice, indicating that he may support government intervention that forces people to wear masks even if they are vaccinated.
Speaking to ABC’s “This Week,” Fauci said that he disagrees with those who have resisted calls by the Centers for Disease Control for vaccinated people to once again wear masks while in shared spaces. Fauci, who is also the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that there are “individual responsibilities” that people have, which affect other people. He said that the spread of infection is increasing and affecting everybody, and that while “you want to a respect a person’s individual right,” it’s different when you’re tackling a public health situation.
Fauci said that an individual’s decision not to wear a mask doesn’t just affect them, but everyone else, as they may infect another person who is vulnerable.
But doesn’t that completely disregard the entire point of individual rights and liberty?
It comes as the White House starts a fresh push to force people to take the vaccine, announcing $100-per-vaccine incentives in willing states, and endorsing the Centers for Disease Control’s latest recommendations on mask-wearing. In New York City, Democrats are going even further to the extremes, with Mayor Bill De Blasio announcing a first-in-nation plan to deny unvaccinated people access to indoor dining, gyms, and entertainment venues.
It seems as though the entire government and political establishment is teaming up to force people to take the vaccine even if they have legitimate concerns about taking it.
This is precisely why President Donald Trump butted heads with Fauci so often…
