Claim : US Special Forces Just Arrested Dr. Anthony Fauci!
People have been sharing a Real Raw News article claiming that US special forces just arrested Dr. Anthony Fauci for treason, medical malpractice and seditious conspiracy!
The article is long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!
Truth : Dr. Anthony Fauci Was Never Arrested
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by Real Raw News, to generate page views and money, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Real Raw News Is A Known Fake News Website
Real Raw News is a known FAKE NEWS website, that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.
To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.
This disclaimer lets him keep creating fake news that will go viral, and generate him money.
His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website.
Fact #2 : No Legitimate Report Of Fauci’s Arrest
Only Real Raw News has published this fantastical account of US special forces arresting Dr. Anthony Fauci.
There is no remotely similar report from any legitimate news outlet, nor an official statement by the government.
How likely is it for a one-man operation like Real Raw News to have a scoop on this “story”?
Fact #3 : Dr. Fauci Made Multiple Live Media Appearances Since His “Arrest”
Dr. Anthony Fauci was never arrested by US special forces, and we know this because he made multiple live media appearances since his “arrest” :
- April 10 : He interviewed live by ABC News
- April 11 : He was a guest on The ReidOut show with MSNBC host, Joy Reid
Fact #4 : NIAID Called It A Fabrication
A spokesperson for the NIAID called the claim that US special forces arrested Dr. Fauci “a fabrication“.
Fact #5 : Pentagon Called It Completely False
The Pentagon labelled the story as “completely false“, and said that it was “a total and utter fabrication and abuse of the word news“.
Fact #6 : US Military Cannot Arrest Civilians Within The United States
It is ludicrous for Real Raw News to claim that US special forces arrested Dr. Fauci.
The Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. § 1385) prohibits “the wilful use of any part of the Army or Air Force to execute the law unless expressly authorised by the Constitution or an act of Congress“.
If the US government wanted to arrest Dr. Fauci, they would have sent the police with a warrant… not US special forces.
