The hashtag #ArrestFauci began trending on Twitter over the weekend after allegations of animal abuse surfaced. Many social media users called authorities to #ArrestFauci over reports that research subjected a number of dogs to cruel testing.
#ArrestFauci For Animal Abuse Reports
A White Coat Waste Project report said that $400,000 in taxpayer money went to dog experiments involving biting flies. In the experiment, healthy beagles received treatment with experimental medication.
Afterward, researchers subjected the beagles to biting flies that carried parasites that are contagious to humans. In a statement, Representative Nancy Mace (R-SC) called on Fauci to explain the NIH decision.
She said that “using taxpayer money to de-bark, drug and kill beagle puppies is both inhumane and a disgrace to this country. The $1.68 million of taxpayer funds to force-feed and/or inject dozens of beagle puppies with experimental drugs is unnecessarily brutal and gruesome.
Dr. Fauci and the rest of the NIH leadership should come forward and explain what the hell is truly going on.”
The Project, using data from a Freedom of Information Act request, said that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s office funded the experiments on the beagles.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases funded the “painful and deadly experiments on dogs,” Fox News’ Ben Domenech reported in August.
Records acquired by the WCWP concluded that the dogs “endured months of pain, and once researchers were done with them, they were killed.”
Mace Sent Letter to Fauci For Explanation
Led by Mace, 24 House representatives called on Fauci to explain the inhumane experiments on dogs. She said that between October 2018 and February 2019, the NIAID spent over $1.68 million on the experiments.
By November 19, Mace asked Fauci and the NIAID to reveal how many tests occurred and how much they cost. She also asked whether the dogs were given up for adoption after the experiments. Lastly, she asked what is the need for splitting the dogs’ vocal cords.
While the letter arrived at the NIAID on October 23, Mace has yet to receive a reply. Even if Fauci ignored the letter, the damage is already done.
The internet made its feelings clear by trending the hashtag #ArrestFauci. This is in addition to another hashtag, #FireFauci, which also expressed many users’ anger over the experiments.
Senator Rand Paul Said Fauci Also Lied On NIH Involvement In Wuhan Lab
Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) also called out Fauci about a new NIH letter dealing with a gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Previously, Fauci denied that the NIH funded any research conducted on the Wuhan Institute. This disavows any connection to the laboratory, which many believe was the origin of the coronavirus.
Last Wednesday, the NIH sent a letter to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce that confirmed two facts. The first was that EcoHealth Alliance did indeed enhance a bat coronavirus to become potentially more infectious to humans.
EcoHealth is a New York City-based nonprofit that works with remote laboratories on emerging diseases. The NIH Letter described an “unexpected result” of the research it funded.
This experiment was made in tandem with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The second was that EcoHealth Alliance violated the terms of its grant conditions.
The funding agreement required the organization to report if any research increased a pathogen’s viral growth tenfold.
Fire or #ArrestFauci
Due to his “lack of judgment, if nothing else,” Paul called on President Joe Biden to fire Fauci. He said that Senate Republicans are calling for an investigation into the White House medical adviser.
Paul also acknowledged that the Democratic majority is holding up any calls for investigations. He said that “there’s been a great deal of resistance on the Democrat side” of the aisle.
However, he’s sure that eventually, inquiring minds would prevail. “Would we not want to know the origin of the virus, and to know if it came from a lab, particularly since this research still goes on?” he asked.
