During a recent segment on his show, right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein has some threatening words for the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
“Let me tell you something, you sick and twisted garden gnome,” Bernstein said, addressing Fauci. “Our rights don’t come from you. They don’t come from the NIH, they don’t come from the Center for Disinformation Control, they don’t come from the Wuhan health organization, and they certainly don’t come from this fraudulent, extremist, authoritarian regime government either.”
“They come from God, that’s where they come from,” he declared. “And not you, or any government or any intel person or agency is gonna do anything about it.”
Bernstein then went to paraphrase Founding Father Patrick Henry.
“I’ve always said Patrick Henry had it half-right. Give me liberty or give me death? Bulls***! Give me liberty or give you death.”
