Cawthorn in line for Pinocchio award
To the Editor:
I recently received an email from Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-Hendersonville. If only there was a Pinocchio award, so I could see our congressman’s nose growing longer and longer.
His exact words as he called for the resignation of Dr. Anthony Fauci: “I took to the House floor a couple of weeks ago to reveal the heinous mutilating techniques that Dr. Fauci has been using on puppies in Africa using your tax dollars.”
Yes, there is research going on worldwide in the battle against Filiariasis. This horrible disease affects over 120 million people worldwide. Mr. Cawthorn didn’t mention that.
So, Dr. Fauci hopped on a plane and flew to Africa with his scalpels and mutilated little puppies.
Actually, the research funded by Dr. Fauci’s federal agency is being done at the University of Georgia under very strict humanitarian rules. His agency is not funding studies in Tunisia with your tax dollars.
Here’s a thorough analysis of Cawthorn’s ridiculous and dishonest claims: www.snopes.com/fact-check/fauci-vaccine-experiment-beagles.
This is one of the top ridiculous and heinous lies (to use Cawthorn’s term) I’ve heard from any member of the U.S. Congress lately. Number one was a Cawthorn colleague from Texas who declared women who are raped can’t get pregnant (my emphasis) because their bodies shut down when they are raped.
Maybe we do need a Pinocchio award. Keep it up, Mr. Cawthorn. You are in second place but with a little more work ….
