Last week, during a House Coronavirus Committee hearing on COVID-19, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked Dr. Fauci if he is concerned that protests are spreading the virus? “Crowding together, particularly when you’re not wearing a mask, contributes to the spread of the virus,” Dr. Fauci told Rep. Jordan.
“Should we limit the protesting?” Jordan asked. “I’m not in a position to determine what the government can do in a forceful way,” Dr. Fauci responded.
Rep. Jordan reminded him, “Well, you make all kinds of recommendations, on dating, on baseball, and everything you can imagine. I’m just asking, you said just protesting increases the spread, should we try to limit the protesting?” Dr. Fauci answered, “No.”
I can’t believe Dr. Fauci just said this.
He’s encouraged limiting everything possible, but when @Jim_Jordan brings up limiting protests he acts completely shocked.
How is this consistent public policy from Fauci?

Conservative commentator Buck Sexton called-out Dr. Fauci’s hypocrisy, saying, “Fauci is a Democrat, folks.”
Fauci is trying to dodge Jim Jordan right now, but it’s clear Fauci won’t say a word of criticism specifically about massive BLM protests as a risk to public health
Fauci is a Democrat, folks.

Two hours ago, independent journalist Andy Ngo captured video footage of a disgusting and filthy scene where food is being stored and eaten in Portland, Oregon, where the Marxist BLM rioters and Antifa are coming together in preparation of another night of rioting. The conditions of their gathering spot are far from sanitary and are clearly not under the supervision of the same government agencies tasked with ensuring restaurants or food preparation businesses are in compliance with COVID safety regulations.
The surfaces and cookie utensils Andy Ngo films for his video are anything but sanitary. While Portland officials are busy putting restaurants out of business over COVID-19, BLM/Antifa is thriving in a cesspool of unchecked filth.
While @MultCoHealth forces business owners in Portland to follow strict COVID rules, those providing aid to rioters in downtown for weeks can operate under these conditions—just like how @tedwheeler violates large gathering ban. Video by @livesmattershow. pic.twitter.com/yaFfrdun4j

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson called out Dr. Fauci for dodging Rep. Jim Jordan’s question about addressing how the rioters are spreading COVID. Why is the rest of the media silent about this? They act as though the spread of COVID is related to businesses reopening, while they totally ignore the massive crowds and unsanitary conditions where “peaceful leftist” protesters are
Why are restaurants going out of business because they’re forced to follow the health guidelines set by the state of Oregon, while BLM and Antifa are allowed to share food and cooking utensils in what appear to be clearly unsanitary conditions? Why does the government in Portland excuse this behavior while imposing strict guidelines on law-abiding business owners?
