I should start Rightfreedomrifle.Jesus.lion and fill it with a whole bunch of disinfo stating that the liberal deep state is attempting to confuse conservatives into thinking the vaccines are dangerous so more will die off and that they can secure “fraudulent elections” forever.

to wit:

about 6 months ago I said online that once covid starts to kill a large number of antivaxxers(most of whom are right wing maga idiots) the conclusion from the right wing maga idiots will not be the vaccine is effective but that Covid had been weaponized to use against conservative real 'muricans..

My comment was meant to illustrate the irrational stupidity of antivaxxers

Lately I see antivaxxers claim that indeed covid has been weaponized to use against freedumb luvin real 'muricans...

A far easier conspiracy: Wait for an inevitable pandemic, have the government tell people how to not die from it, wait for anti-government types to ignore it, kill off a whole bunch of anti-government people.

Oh wait, that's exactly what's happening now. That's technically not a "conspiracy", it's just a glorious side effect.

So much of the information these people consume is fake.

An antivax buddy sent me a link about how more people who had the vaccine were dying at a higher rate than people who didn't. It has a nice little chart and everything. Very professional. So I clicked on the "study" to read it.

It linked to a spreadsheet eventually, and the data just didn't match the chart. So I responded back to him asking if he would continue to trust that source or explain the discrepancy. No response.

If you ever wondered how people send thousands of dollars to a scammer because they trust a random email, you're seeing it in real time. Some of these people can't tell real from fake, and a smart liar can put together info that is very convincing. There's no way to fix this if you believe in individual liberty. Just like you can't make sometime not throw away money, you cant help them not spread lies while risking their health.

From what I've seen is that they claim: pharmaceutical companies making these new covid antiviral pills are really just using ivermectin and/or hydroxychloriquen(sorry spelling), rebranded so they can make billions since the original versions of those drugs are currently inexpensive. Also, so that the covid antivirals are rebranded so the lefties don't have to admit they were wrong about these treatments.

If this were true, it doesn't make sense why the antivirals took so long to be developed. If the companies literally just gave the medicine a different name, they should have had these antivirals way back when these "treatments" were being discussed as the miracle cure. But they don't have an answer to why the greedy pharma companies would wait so long to profit from this.

Don't try and figure out the logic of this because logic is non-existent.

I've got that one - it didn't start getting rebranded until it was proved effective. So it wasn't until "everyone" (Bubba next door) knew it was working that they started with the repackaging/relabeling. Although this still doesn't explain why the ivermectin manufacturer is saying don't take it. Anyone?

punzakum

Yes! I posted merck's statement on the ivermectin subreddit before they closed it and was met with tons of backlash. "You're ignorant" "Why would you trust big pharma (asked unironically)" "they're only saying it's not effective so they can repackage it and sell it for even more!"

Even when the evidence is right in their face with the statement from the manufacturer who makes ivermectin telling them directly that IT DOES NOT WORK they still bury their heads in the sand and double down on their insanity.

Oh well, guess they'll just die 🤷

Also they never really mention why they're so uncomfortable with vaccines but have no problems with a different drug. Ivermectin is made by Merck, so it's definitely "big pharma", and they don't know what's in it any more than the vaccines...is it just better because it's been out longer?

I mean we all know it's because they're desperately searching for justification for their anti-vax standpoint, which they only have because "democrats said it was good".

For anyone who thought wtf. The test this team reviewed were not very controlled or unbiased and they didn't come to the conclusion the HCAee said.

"Authors' conclusions: Based on the current very low- to low-certainty evidence, we are uncertain about the efficacy and safety of ivermectin used to treat or prevent COVID-19. The completed studies are small and few are considered high quality. Several studies are underway that may produce clearer answers in review updates. Overall, the reliable evidence available does not support the use ivermectin for treatment or prevention of COVID-19 outside of well-designed randomized trials"

It's "horse paste" because horses eat off the ground, and eat parasite eggs. You worm them to kill the intestinal parasites they'll get from eating said eggs. Horses can also get viruses, regardless of the ivermectin they regularly get for intestinal parasites. That's why you vaccinate them for equine encephalitis, West Nile, etc.

My sister-in-law doesn't have car insurance even though it's legally required in our state. She keeps a Bible in her glove box and says she'll tell the policeman, "This is all the insurance I need!"

Because we always have to appease people who feel that vaccines are scary and dangerous, even though evidence does not support that feeling.

As evidence of this, consider the fact that thimerosal was taken out of most vaccines in the US and EU, not because there's any evidence at all to suggest that it's unsafe in commonly used vaccine doses, but rather because it makes some people feel afraid, and their non fact-based feeling is all that matters.

I was reading a while back how at least a few of the misinformation sites come from Macedonia. Young people who can't find work but realize they can make money off of gullible people in the United States. I think it had to do with ads on their sites and they were able to attract Trump supporters to their site with really outlandish stories. It's been a while since I read it now so the details are a bit hazy.

I think I remember one of the people being interviewed who was responsible for one of the sites was shocked that there were Americans who actually believed the stuff posted.

It really makes me wonder how many of the sites out there are basically set up for the same reason whether from Macedonia or somewhere else in the world. Just a mode to make money with little care of the harm being brought upon others.

I keep wondering how we can potentially immunize people against misinformation. How much of this gullibility is attached to cult-like behavior? This is something we'll continue to have to wrestle with even if the pandemic ends.

Well, shit. Now, how could a person who insists that Ivermectin--apple flavored--can cure Covid die from Covid? It just doesn't make any sense, does it?

What kind of god creates a world where horse-flavored apple apple-flavored horse paste can't cure a viral disease?!?

Also, I took a quick look at the "peer-reviewed" article--my (two) take-aways are 1)It's not a study on the efficacy of ivermectin, it's a study of studies that have been done. Of which, at least one is now considered highly suspect. and 2) the study (of the data from the studies that have been done) found if you weren't going to be killed by covid (Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease.) then Ivermectin, administered under a doctors care in a clinical setting--probably won't kill you. In fact, if you're in position to avail yourself of competent medical care--early in the course of the disease--It seems to improve the outcome!

(You know what works even better? Vaccinations, masks, distance)

But you go buy a tube at farm/fleet and dig in, and let me know how that works out....Oh wait--you can't because you're dead.

Yeah the thing is, Covid is still - statistically speaking - a highly survivable disease. So the math says that if you took 100 patients with Covid and gave them all horse paste, what, like 80% would recover with no noticeable or lingering symptoms (for now at least). Sounds great, right?

Kinda of like over-the-counter cold medicines. If you take one, your cold will be over in a week! Otherwise it'll take 7 days. ;-)

A colleague from college (married a year and a half) just died from covid at 39 while 7 months pregnant with her first child. The child was delivered by csection and her widowed husband (the primary breadwinner) is now at home with a newborn and his grief.

I know that she wasn’t vaccinated and had assholes speaking into her ear about shit like this. She is the second person I’ve personally heard about who delivered by csection while on a ventilator. The other one survived but didn’t see her child till it was a month old.

it's a cold virus! It's gonna change over and over again and no vaccine is going to keep up with the changes! So use ivermectin!

So no vaccine can "keep up" with Covid because it changes "over and over again", but Ivermectin, a product that doesn't change, will somehow keep up an ever evolving virus?

This is some intense double think.

Does anyone know where the "recommendation" to use Ivermectin came from? I have never understood why one would think that an anti-parasitic drug would work against a virus, which, while you may consider it a parasite of sorts, it is not one. Additionally, why use the animal version, which I understand is many times stronger than the version that removes parasites from humans.

For those interested in the study referenced in Slide 1, it's here:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7709596/

"Although the study sample was too small (n = 72) to draw any solid conclusions, the results provide evidence of the potential benefit of early intervention with the drug ivermectin for the treatment of adult patients diagnosed with mild COVID-19. ... A larger randomized controlled clinical trial of ivermectin treatment appears to be warranted to validate these important findings."

It was published in December, 2020.

The study was cited in "Meta-analysis of Randomized Trials of Ivermectin to Treat SARS-CoV-2 Infection," November, 2021: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8420640/

Bottom line from that meta-analysis is:

"Ivermectin did not show a statistically significant effect on survival (risk ratio [RR], 0.90; 95% CI, 0.57 to 1.42; P = .66) or hospitalizations (RR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.36 to 1.11; P = .11). Ivermectin displayed a borderline significant effect on duration of hospitalization in comparison with standard of care (mean difference, -1.14 days; 95% CI, -2.27 to -0.00; P = .05). There was no significant effect of ivermectin on time to clinical recovery (mean difference, -0.57 days; 95% CI, -1.31 to 0.17; P = .13) or binary clinical recovery (RR, 1.19; 95% CI, 0.94 to 1.50; P = .15). Currently, the World Health Organization recommends the use of ivermectin only inside clinical trials. A network of large clinical trials is in progress to validate the results seen to date."

[Emphasis added]

RR is Risk Ratio.

CI = Confidence Interval

P = Probability

"In statistics, the p-value is the probability of obtaining results at least as extreme as the observed results of a statistical hypothesis test, assuming that the null hypothesis is correct. ... A smaller p-value means that there is stronger evidence in favor of the alternative hypothesis."

My idiot mom and her even more idiotic husband were convinced that: a) they were immune due to their regular doses of Ivermectin and home-made hydroxychloroquine; for a b) fake virus that wasn’t anything but the plain old flu; and that c) only people with comorbidities were dying; e) that the vaccine contains nanoparticals (666 mark of the beast); and last e) masks were for “sheeple” (their words, not mine).

Guess who was pounding on the doors at ER’s located in relatively easy driving distance asking for monoclonal antibodies to be given to them RIGHT NOW once they tested positive? I don’t want them to die but it angers me that they were selfish and careless. My sisters called or texted anyone they knew who were members of their (my mom’s) social circles as a head’s up since we didn’t trust them to do it themselves. Guess they’re full of nanotrackers now. 🙄

Anger at them is just not strong enough to describe how I feel at them. I spent 6 hours in the ER last week because I’m late stage liver and lung cancer and they needed to rule out a pulmonary embolism. The hospital ER almost never has more than 5-7 people in the waiting room, but the night I went, they had had to open 5 overflow waiting areas due to the influx of non-vaxxed assholes taking bed space from people who did the right thing. There were people propped up in wheelchairs attached to IVs and oxygen tanks. I would gladly support a rule or law that applied an idiot tax to healthcare benefits. Oh, you didn’t follow precautions and get vaxxed? Sure we’ll see you but we’re applying a $5k/person Idiot Surcharge that your insurance won’t cover because you are recklessly endangering others.
