Dr. Fauci Wants America to Become a Police State Like China in Order to Stop Coronavirus

Fauci is now seen as an oracle of sorts in the era of the coronavirus.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, wants to see America emulate the Chinese police state in order to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Fauci has said he advocates for customers to receive forced temperature checks before being able to enter a supermarket, a measure that has been conducted in both China and Italy, the two countries ravaged the worst by coronavirus.

“I think the logistics of that have to be worked out,” Fauci said during an interview with Science Magazine.

“That was discussed. All these things are discussed. Not all of them are implemented. This is something that should be considered,” Fauci said of the plan to force temperature checks outside of supermarkets.

“I will bring it up at the next task force meeting and see whether there’s some sort of a logistical, bureaucratic reason why it can’t be done. The rationale for doing it is at least worth serious consideration,” he added.

As Americans grow more fearful and desperate because of the coronavirus pandemic, Fauci has emerged as a popular soothsayer to the hapless public. The public increasingly views him as an oracle regarding the virus, and he has played into the role by advocating an increase of authoritarianism at every turn.

“I think Americans should be prepared that they are going to have to hunker down significantly more than we as a country are doing,” he said during a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press,” in which he called for a national shutdown for a minimum of two weeks.

“You know I would prefer as much as we possibly could. I think we should really be overly aggressive and get criticized for overreacting,” he added.

Meanwhile, President Trump is urging people not to overreact to the coronavirus pandemic.

“WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF,” Trump said in a Twitter post on Sunday night. “AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!”

However, Fauci has no problem with creeping totalitarianism, suggesting that an unprecedented expansion of government power against the Constitution is nothing to be worried about.

“You don’t want to be complacent. You always want to be ahead of the curve,” Fauci said, “but it depends on how far ahead of the curve you want to be.”

Fauci may be worshiped by millions of scared, TV-addicted Americans as a doom prophet during this pandemic, but the bureaucrat may ultimately cause more damage to America than the coronavirus ever could with his non-stop advocacy of government overreach.

President Trump Announces Planned Ban on Chinese-Owned TikTok App

The app has serious spying concerns.

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced that he’s preparing to ban the video app TikTok on national security grounds on Friday, citing the concerns over the Chinese app’s connections to Chinese government security, and the potential use of the nominally innocent app to surveil American citizens.

The President had made the announcement on an Air Force One flight to the press pool, later confirming that the media could report on the policy move on the record.

As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” said the President bluntly.

TikTok is a viral video app marketed to teenagers and young adults that allows users to create short and edited videos. It’s frequently used for memes, pranks, and simple political content. It’s owned by Chinese company ByteDance, which is obligated to cooperate with Chinese intelligence services under the laws of China.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had previously spoken of security concerns involving the Chinese app. Microsoft had recently offered to purchase the app from its parent company, but the surveillance and security surrounding it appear to have shelved such a possibility for now.

There are genuine surveillance and data-mining concerns with TikTok, but it’s also probably worth considering that banning the app will allow neoliberal tech monopolies such as Facebook and Apple to share up an even larger share of the demand for platforms designed for similar content.
