Dr. Anthony Fauci is on the Neck of Dark Web People Harassing his Family
In a National Geographic documentary, Fauci said dark web people are getting really bad. More so, threats extended to his wife and three daughters. Early this year, false claims surfaced that Dr. Fauci was planning to flee the country
Dr. Anthony Fauci Grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. He says that in the area, he learned “you didn’t take shit from anybody.” In fact, he embraced the spirit through the HIV/AIDS crisis in the US. This was in the 1980s and 1990s when he was meeting with activists. Moreover, Fauci included them when developing clinical trials for new drugs.
Yet, when coronavirus emerged, the level of vitriol targeted at him felt different. Dr. Fauci directs the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. In addition to that, he is the US’ leading advisor on COVID-19. Now, the vitriol target extended to his family, including his wife and three daughters.
In a National Geographic documentary, Fauci said the darknet people are getting really bad. He was speaking to AIDS activist Peter Staley who used to check on him. Further, he said they were harassing his wife, Christine Grady.
Darknet People Targeted Dr. Fauci and His Family
There is a movie called “Fauci” now streaming on Disney+. Ordinarily, it shares glimpses of Fauci during the pandemic. Furthermore, it provides a window into the harassment and threats he’s gotten.
At one point in 2020, Fauci’s family had to get assigned personal security. Because people like far-right QAnon followers launched serious threats against them. Also, members of the Trump White House tried to discredit Fauci. For instance, Fauci said his wife got called up with violent threats like eight times in one day.
Above all, the family never experienced these kinds of threats and harassment before. Even though Fauci had frequent disagreements with activists earlier on.
In August 2020, Fauci started to believe everything was okay. However, he opened a letter, and “a puff of powder came up.” At the time, he was at work. The powder got on his pants, tie, shirt, hands, and chin. Following that, he regretted having opened the letter.
As a result, many things started crossing his mind. First, he thought it was a hoax. Second, he thought it was anthrax. Also, he thought it was ricin, and it was going to kill him. Fortunately, when tested, the powder turned out to be benign.
Fauci understands that he’s still a “bad person” to many people. The reason being, he represents the truth, and that is uncomfortable for them. Besides, he believes that the pandemic will end. Yet, it won’t be because of collective action by the public.
Early this year, false claims surfaced that Dr. Fauci was planning to flee the country. Still, there was no real evidence supporting the claim. Furthermore, the website with the publication was questionable.
