No Minister

The Victimology Gambit

with 3 comments

A story out of the USA the other day struck me for its link with recent events in New Zealand.

It seems that poor old Dr Fauci ran into his usual buzzsaw of an an opponent, Senator, Dr, and nemesis Rand Paul, while testifying before Congress. He’s done several of these sessions now and they’ve have been rough for Fauci from the start but have only got rougher as more information about the Wuhan virus lab have leaked and shown Fauci’s past denials of involvement as the lies they always were.

Cornered by Paul’s latest follow-up questions, Fauci used a modern tactic of the Left. He painted himself as a victim:

Dr. Fauci then demands time to read from remarks attacking RandP aul for criticizing him w/o “a shred of evidence” and directly blames those who’ve disagreed w/him for the death threats he’s received & messages to family members.

He adds Paul is doing it “for political reasons.”

In other words: stop asking me these questions that I can’t answer because that makes me look like a bad guy in the eyes of the public and results in threats against me.

The tactic is designed to reverse the good guy / bad guy roles, stop the flow of questions about all this Covid stuff, and deflect to a new issue that the MSM can really get their teeth into, being threats to one of their Precious Supporters of the Narrative.

As this article points out, it’s a tactic that needs to be called out as the weasel bullshit that it is, and in this case it’s especially nasty given that Rand Paul is the one who has suffered actual physical attacks because of his politics:

Rand Paul’s been shot at and beaten up, as well as nearly mobbed by an angry crowd, and yet he’s still doing his job at great peril to himself. He chose this and he deals with the fallout.

Paul is actually missing part of his lung as a result of that beating, an event that caused much snickering across the Democrat TwitFace world and it was an Antifa crowd chasing he and his wife up a street, so given their standard tactic of “direct action” (e.g. violence) not to be dismissed lightly.

Fauci has a lot to answer for and he needs to answer for it. He can’t be allowed to weasel his way out of the hot seat by proclaiming he’s the victim of threats. Not only does this become an obstacle for answers and real justice, but it makes our society take these claims less and less seriously.

The bottom line: Fauci is a very public figure. He’s gonna get threats. People in the public sphere have been getting threats for ages and yet they still managed to do their job.

This isn’t to say death threats should suddenly be ignored, but they shouldn’t become the central focus. If you screwed up, then face the music. Painting oneself as a victim when they’re the offender doesn’t make the offenses go away, especially when the offense is being part of unleashing a virus that destroyed billions of lives around the world.

The link with New Zealand is that just the other day there were apparently reports about death threats being made against the Prime Minister. But every PM for years now has got death threats. These ones surfaced in the MSM just as Ardern finds herself on the hook for the corrupt, bullying behaviour of her dim-witted partner.

How very Faucian of her.

  1. Paul got into a fight because he’s a bad neighbour, lost, and this makes him a hero in your eyes? Get vaxxed, fuckwit.

    [MOD: I’m letting this typical Judge Holden comment through because he’s such a perfect example of the Far Left’s toxic online bile. This is how you get Bernie Sander’s supporters shooting at Republicans, while other Lefties beat them up.
    No guilt, no shame, no conscience and you know that if he thought he could get away with it, “Judge Holden” is capable of such things himself. ]

  2. The PM doesn’t need her common law husband to indulge corrupt, bullying behaviour. She’s perfectly capable of that herself.
