Dr. Fauci Swamped by Threatening Calls Over Medical Experiments on Beagles
A false claim that Dr. Anthony Fauci and his National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases had funded a medical experiment that trapped beagles in cages filled with diseased sand flies, is being rapidly spread throughout the conservative and MAGA world, by a little known right-wing “animal rights” front group called “White Coat Waste Project.” This has led to thousands of threatening calls to Dr. Fauci, his family, and staff. Meanwhile, folks like Donald Trump Jr. see this fake story as a terrific fund raising opportunity, and have been busy selling merch - such as T-shirts which accuse Dr. Fauci of being a “puppy killer.”
Well, gee whiz! So Republicans are now animal rights activists? Why, who knew? Can’t wait to see what’s next - Donald Trump writes a vegan cookbook titled “The Art of the Meal?” Pardon my skepticism, but my guess is these gun-worshipping MAGA morons care as much about animal welfare - as Steve Bannon cares about personal hygiene.
And, guess whose been leading this attack on Dr. Fauci with this fake animal research story? Why, none other than noted animal lover Donald Trump Jr. - a guy whose favorite hobby is killing endangered elephants and leopards in Africa - just for the fun of it. I mean, isn’t having Don Jr. leading the fight for animal rights, kind of like asking Hannibal Lecter to do a PSA against cannibalism?
The truth is, most all of these so-called MAGA Republican “animal rights” activists, probably eat mammals such as pigs frequently, without any concern for them whatsoever. This, even though pigs are actually smarter than dogs - and certainly smarter than any Trump supporter I’ve ever met. Although, some might argue that Trump supporters actually are pigs, but I digress.
Now, I’m certainly no big advocate of animal testing, but this isn’t about that. It’s about MAGA sycophants who’ve been busy passing AG-GAG laws, designed to prevent whistle blowers from exposing the horrible cruelties committed on animals by agribusiness - and spreading lies while posing as animal rights activists. No, this isn't about animal welfare. What it’s really about, is making Dr. Fauci’s life miserable for his perceived disloyalty - to Donald J. Trump.
