Less reliable than spokespeople with a political agenda?
In my estimation, no. 8)

What astounds me is the number of useful idiots blindly trusting purported authority figures.
How naive do idiots people have to be to simply accept everything/k the establishment propagates?
How many examples of the corruption of the system does one have to observe before it sinks in?
Apparently, an infinite amount for some who are blinded by hyperpartisanship. 8O



I am playing the devil’s advocate. When I showed this news to a friend his first reaction that he can’t take DRASTIC seriously because they’re a community of tweeters.
Couldn’t find a counter argument for that - but I would say one should judge the content they provided rather than the messenger.


Presumably, your friend believes the "97% of scientists agree about global warming" people.
It was found to be 97% of *political activists* agree. 8O
"Mickey Mouse" was one of the participants, btw. :lmao:



Last I checked that number it was about 98% of climate scientists; are you sure you're talking about the same survey?

Here is something to consider.
The left has the tendency to "Cancel" any scientist who disagrees with its political narrative.
It is well known that funding is given preference to populist leftist ideology.

The same thing/k happens at skool, with some teachers/lecturers favouring students who kowtow to their Weltanschauung.

Such is life. 8)

Quote:
“I totally resent the lie you are now propagating.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared to be channeling the frustration of millions of Americans when he spoke those words during an invective-laden, made-for-Twitter Senate hearing on July 20. You didn’t have to be a Democrat to be fed up with all the xenophobic finger-pointing and outright disinformation, coming mainly from the right, up to and including the claim that COVID-19 was a bioweapon cooked up in a lab.

The immediate target of Dr. Fauci’s wrath was Senator Rand Paul, who was pressing the nation’s top doctor to say whether the National Institutes of Health had ever funded risky coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Based on new information disclosed by the National Institutes of Health, however, Paul might have been onto something.

On Wednesday, the NIH sent a letter to members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce that acknowledged two facts. One was that EcoHealth Alliance, a New York City–based nonprofit that partners with far-flung laboratories to research and prevent the outbreak of emerging diseases, did indeed enhance a bat coronavirus to become potentially more infectious to humans, which the NIH letter described as an “unexpected result” of the research it funded that was carried out in partnership with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The second was that EcoHealth Alliance violated the terms of its grant conditions stipulating that it had to report if its research increased the viral growth of a pathogen by tenfold.

How fauci remains employed, after what he did, is one of the mysteries of the universe. 8O

I read through this article. I should point out that this DRASTIC group seem sketchy and it's clear some choose to hide their identities (for corroboration I recommend Google).

Far from a damning indictment of Fauci.

fauci is luved by the left, for some reason I can't fathom.

Regarding anonymity, the left-wing extremists do at times become violent.
They are also known to force people to lose their jobs by intimidating the businesses they work for.
I'm surprised you didn't know this.
