Experts Are Lying About Schools to Protect Themselves
One of the country's most prolific liars can't help himself
Peter Hotez is not an intellectually honest person.
He’s also not a legitimate “expert,” in the sense that most people should think of the word.
In theory, expertise should involve a qualified individual who puts aside their personal feelings in an attempt to reach the most accurate conclusion based on the facts, data and evidence.
That’s the goal anyway.
Instead, what we’ve seen witnessed in the past few years is that the fundamentals of scientific rigor and importance of unbiased expertise is easily cast aside, with political agendas given precedence over facts.
So although Hotez has all of the credentials that would lead you to assume he’s capable of expertise, his actions and public statements quite profoundly contradict that belief.
His cozy relationship with Dr. Anthony Fauci is yet another indication that Fauci’s judgement and awareness are severely lacking.
Just as with his recommendation of Rochelle Walensky to her current post as CDC director,
Fauci, through association, has given credibility to unhinged conspiracy theorists like Hotez:
The “decades of friendship” and “scientific collaborations” speak volumes about the disaster that Fauci’s unleashed on the country.
He’s no stranger to lying to suit an agenda:
But his latest misdirection involved him purposefully lying about his activism on schools.
It’s yet another example of how experts have used their credentials to engage in political posturing at the expense of actual expertise.
