The point has been made many times over the years and it remains consistent to this day. In this case, the politically-opportune and their media care more about the suffering and death of animals over human beings.
The latest case in point….
Social media users are calling for the arrest of Dr. Anthony Fauci and his removal as the nation’s top infectious disease expert after his agency was found to have used taxpayer funds to finance cruel experiments on dogs. The hashtag #ArrestFauci was trending on Twitter over the weekend, amplifying the outrage over the experiments, including one which saw beagles trapped in cages so flies could eat them, and another where they were ‘debarked’ before being pumped with drugs and killed.
One of the most disturbing incidents funded by Fauci’s National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Diseases involved $375,000 given to a Tunisian research lab. There, puppies had their heads held in cages, before being left for sand flies to eat them alive for research purposes.

In the Tunisia study, the researchers starved the flies to make them hungry and “the sand flies were then allowed to feed on the sedated dogs…” In a second part of the Fauci-funded experiments in Tunisia, experimenters locked beagles in cages alone in the desert for nine consecutive nights, using them as bait to attract infectious sand flies.

Now that Twitter is outraged, this is now the cause du jour!
Republican South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace released a letter, signed by Democrats and Republicans, calling for an investigation into the NIH after revelations a laboratory in Tunisia conducted cruel experiments on dogs.

Don’t get us wrong; this is horrendous and in every state in the U.S., the inhumane treatment of animals is a felony of varying severity. Dr. Fauci’s green-lighting of funding for gain-of-function research into deadly viruses are given a pass by our media despite him lying about his involvement during a hearing at the United States Senate. Despite the fact he’s received not one vote from the American people in any election, he’s become the voice and direction of science and medicine during the COVID-19 pandemic even though he may have had a big hand in the deaths of millions around the world.
The experiments in Tunisia aren’t the only beagle “research” the NIAID has funded.
And after almost two years of misery inflicted on the world, what may finally bring Fauci down to Earth?
Forty-four dead puppies.
Meanwhile, let’s compare this to another taxpayer-funded outrage most on social media are all for: abortion on demand.
2019-2020 Planned Parenthood service numbers
Number of abortions (medical and surgical): 354,871
Total number of abortions per week: 6,824
Non-Hispanic Black Abortions by PP
According to the CDC 38% of abortions are done on non-Hispanic Black mothers. Using this data:
Per year estimate: 134,850
Per day estimate: 369

There is no hashtag for the over 61 millions babies who’ve been aborted, which does involve a bit of painful mutilation in the process, since Roe vs. Wade survived the Supreme Court.
While the Tunisia puppy torture will have millions thumping their collective chests in outrage, Dr. Fauci’s experimentation on animals are overshadowing the cost of human lives his COVID-19 pandemic has brought down on the world. But that’s also consistent because too many care more about their pets than they do about people so it’s fitting that this may be what finally rids the world of his unelected influence.
This same Twitter mob will soon shift their outrage of animal torture in favor of the killing of the unborn when abortion arrives, front and center, to the Supreme Court in November. Compare those hashtags with the ones you’ll see for the next couple days….
