Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is speaking out to blame thousands of monthly COVID-19 deaths on Dr. Anthony Fauci and his bias towards jabs.
“I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now from COVID because [Fauci’s] deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics,” said Paul, who is also a physician, according to Fox News.
Paul went on to say that Fauci has a long history of having a “bias” toward vaccines, going all the way back to his work on AIDS.
“I think Fauci is of the philosophy that vaccines are incredibly successful and are the way to go versus therapeutics, for example. So with regard to AIDS, he was involved as the AIDS epidemic came up, he wanted to develop a vaccine,” he continued. “There’s nothing wrong with that. He wanted to develop a vaccine. Vaccines can be great for polio or smallpox or wonderful. It didn’t actually work for AIDS.”

Paul has said in the past that monoclonal antibodies “are one of the most promising treatments for the virus” after a person has been infected, but that misinformation on the antibody treatment plagues “government bureaucrats.”
“Recent data showed that monoclonal antibody treatment cuts the risk of death and hospitalization by 70% in high-risk patients and reduces the chance of infection among a household by 80%,” Paul wrote in an op-ed back in September. “Monoclonal antibodies have only just begun to be mentioned by the mainstream media, and misinformation still plagues government bureaucrats when discussing this scientifically-backed treatment.”
This comes after Fauci suggested a possible federal requirement for vaccines for domestic flights in an attempt to get more people in the U.S. to get their shots.
“That’s another incentive to get more people vaccinated,” he said while appearing on MSNBC. “If you want to do that with domestic flights, I think that’s something that seriously should be considered.”
Paul and Fauci have been going at each other from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Kentucky senator accusing the infections disease expert of lying about the effectiveness of natural immunity because it “foils his plans to get everybody possible vaccinated.”
“The reason he [Fauci] won’t bring up natural immunity is because it foils his plans to get everybody possible vaccinated,” Paul said back in October. “He thinks it might slow down vaccination. And I’m for people getting vaccinated, particularly people at risk, but the thing is, if you ignore naturally acquired immunity then you’re saying we don’t have enough people, you have to force it on younger people.”
