“Have you noticed how strikingly similar both the mindsets and actions between the suicide bombers at Kabul’s airport, and the anti-mask and anti-vax people here? They both blow themselves up, inflict harm on those around them, and are convinced they are fighting for freedom.”
As Sir Bedivere (Terry Jones) put it in Monty Python’s Holy Grail movie, “who are you who is so wise in the ways of science?” Turns out, it’s former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who graduated from Harvard with a degree in sociology. Duncan’s bio shows no degrees in public health, medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry or anything else that would qualify him to pronounce on the pandemic. On the other hand, anybody who examines Duncan’s record might notice some similarities with southern segregationist governors.
At Harvard, Duncan wrote a thesis on “The values, aspirations and opportunities of the urban underclass” and went on to play basketball in Australia. In 2001, Chicago mayor Richard Daley tapped the hoopster for Chicago schools boss. In 2008, the composite character David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama picked Duncan for education secretary.
In Washington DC, the urban underclass, primarily African American, must endure some of the most dysfunctional and dangerous schools in the nation. The Sidwell friends school, where the composite character president, like the Clintons, sent his own children, was out of reach. The best alternative was the DC Opportunity Scholarships Program, a school-choice program run by Congress. Teacher unions and federal educrats oppose all school-choice programs and Arne Duncan captains their squad.
As the Washington Post said in a 2009 editorial, “Mr. Duncan decided – disappointingly to our mind – to rescind scholarships awarded to 216 families for this upcoming school year.” The privileged, pasty-faced Harvard man ejected poor black students from the schools they wanted to attend. Like segregationist governors, Duncan blocked the doorway of the dysfunctional government schools, trapping students inside.
This is the man who equates jihadist suicide bombers with critics of mask and vaccine mandates. A similar statement recently emerged from Dr. Scott Kellermann, the public health officer of Nevada County, California, once home to our late colleague Peter Collier.
In a zoom video last month, Dr. Kellermann referred to a San Francisco board of health officer who shot a man, and two bystanders, for not wearing a mask. This was for the purpose of “keeping people safe” and an example of “swift justice.” Dr. Kellermann passed it off as a joke but embattled locals weren’t laughing. As this comes down, the Biden Junta is deploying draconian vaccine mandates that make little sense but clearly threaten those who dissent.
“We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” Biden huffed in a recent statement. “And your refusal has cost all of us.” No cost analysis or medical-scientific data accompanies the statement, which alludes to “surge response teams” made up in part from the Defense Department.
Biden is open about being “instructed” and the puppeteer in this case is doubtless chief White House medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, on record that to criticize him is to criticize science itself. Dr. Fauci is the star of Fauci, a worshipful film including such medical experts as singer Bono and billionaire Bill Gates. For purposes of comparison, think of a Soviet film titled Lysenko, starring the quack agronomist his own self.
Anthony Fauci earned a medical degree at Cornell in 1966 but if he ever practiced medicine it was only for a short time. To avoid service treating wounded American soldiers, Fauci became a “yellow beret” with the National Institutes of Health. His bio showed no advanced degrees in biochemistry or molecular biology but in 1984 Fauci became head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Back in the 1990s Nobel laureate Kary Mullis, inventor of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), said Fauci “doesn’t understand electron microscopy and he doesn’t understand medicine. He should not be in a position like he’s in.” Unfortunately, he is.
Fauci’s NIAID funded the Wuhan Institute of virology (WIV) for dangerous gain-of-function research that makes viruses more transmissible and deadly. In early 2020, Fauci opposed President Trump’s ban on travel from China and went on to recommend the destructive lockdowns that crushed the powerful Trump economy, infringed on Americans’ constitutional rights, and enabled massive voting by mail. Statements by Fauci in sympathy with the people’s suffering are hard to find.
Fauci lied about funding the WIV and Sen. Rand Paul has recommended a criminal referral for the NIAID boss, the highest paid bureaucrat in the federal government. With the DOJ in the tank for the Biden Junta that is not going to happen, and it gets worse. Under Christopher Wray, the FBI is focusing on “domestic terrorists,” in practical terms, anyone less than worshipful of the Biden Junta. For his part, Joint Chiefs boss Gen. Milley likens Trump to Hitler and considers Trump supporters “brownshirts.”
In this hostile atmosphere, it’s a natural progression to scapegoat critics of Biden’s nonsensical vaccine mandates. Arne Duncan equates vaccine and mask protesters with suicide bombers, implying that both deserve the same deadly fate. Dr. Scott Kellermann recalls health officials gunning down those without masks as an act of swift justice to keep the people safe.
Behind the sanitary mask, white coat supremacy (WCS) demonizes dissenters and justifies state-sponsored violence against some people, supposedly for the greater good of all. Embattled Americans could be forgiven for calling out WCS as classic totalitarianism, in theory and practice.
