In a stunning and heated COVID-19 pandemic exchange on the House floor, Dr. Anthony Fauci conveniently sidestepped the Bill of Rights, sternly telling U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, “I don’t look at this as a liberty thing. I look at it as a public health thing,” he said. To which Jordan responded, “You think the Constitution is suspended during a pandemic? It’s certainly not.”
The unpleasant discourse exploded following Jordan’s simple question: “When do Americans get their freedom back?” When Fauci failed to answer adequately, an infuriated Jordan continued to address the litany of assaults on our freedoms and liberty during the pandemic, now in its second year, from Draconian lockdowns and stay-at-home orders to senseless mandates regarding masks and vaccinations. Fauci, of course, danced around the issue with the usual Deep State rhetoric. Here’s more of the clash on Purple Soul.
