Dr. Mengelfauci: Pinocchio, Puppeteer, or Both?
– by Margaret Anna Alice –

“A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolved, and the people recovering their true sight, restoring their government to its true principles. It is true, that in the meantime, we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war, and long oppressions of enormous public debt.”

—Thomas Jefferson, 1798, after the passage of the Sedition Act

It’s easy to imagine Dr. Mengelfauci as the prototypical Pinocchio, his dimpled nose jutting out another inch every time he spouts a new lie, but really he’s more like Mangiafuoco, the waffling puppet-master of the Great Marionette Theatre in Carlo Collodi’s 1883 The Adventures of Pinocchio.1 Or maybe he’s both, as no doubt his strings are being pulled by shadow puppet-masters whose names we may never know.

Pinocchio is a pathological prevaricator who is not only implausibly dense but an incompetent liar to boot. His lies are so transparent and contradictory as to be laughable. On those counts, Dr. Mengelfauci is a match.

Where he doesn’t align with both the original Italian and Disney versions is in the marionette’s genuine remorse for his wicked deeds and his ardent desire to reform, ultimately leading to his redemptive transformation into a human being—a metamorphosis unlikely to befall today’s wooden fabulist. more

8 Comments on Pinocchio, Puppeteer, or Both?

  1. Have to say “BOTH”. To steal a phrase from Harry Truman, this shit-eating little weasel “doesn’t know the difference between lying and telling the truth”. HST said that about Nixon, but it’s totally applicable to Dr. Falsie now.

  2. Just a vain, easy to corrupt bureaucrat.

    We found out that since Bill Clinton, the American government is literally an organized crime operation.

  3. Well, we know he is a liar. Is he a puppetmaster? I am not sure. If his comments were consistent, I would say yes with no hesitation. I am on the fence. I do think his comments are selectively used by the left, but I cannot say that he is responsible for the mandates. What is driving his constantly shifting comments? His alter ego? China? Soros?

  4. I wish I could say this is going to end badly, but it’s already horrific, with no end in sight. It’s like looking through binoculars the wrong way.

  5. The putrid toad who claims to be a ‘doctor’, though there’s no verifiable proof of that either same as the Gates pedophile, Fauci and his laughable and (tiny) unmanly juvenile ego plus the lure of money and collusion is his only way to be noticed by…well….anyone.
