What does Faucism mean?

Covid-related control tactics led by Dr. Anthony Fauci

Faucism is a term coined from combining “Fauci” and “fascism.” It’s a term used to refer to the perceived autocratic actions of Dr. Anthony Fauci, a specialist in Infectious Diseases. Some people see his actions in the fight against covid as a display of excessive power.

The term gained traction in 2020’s summer when many people began feeling exhausted from the government’s covid restrictions. A lot of the frustration was directed at Dr. Fauci, as he was the prominent face in the battle against the pandemic.

Generally, Faucism is a term used by conservatives, often older individuals and Baby Boomers who view the COVID-19 pandemic as a scam. They use it as a means to challenge what they perceive as the government’s increasing power and the recommendations of Dr. Fauci.

Users typically deploy this term on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. They use it to point out what they believe to be hypocrisy, irrationality, or unethical suggestions by Dr. Fauci. Examples include his support for lockdowns, mask mandates, and maintaining social distancing even after receiving the Covid vaccine.
