HCQ redux

Everything is becoming political, even science, says psychiatrist and author Norman Doidge, in “Hydroxychloroquine: A Morality Tale,” in Tablet Magazine.

We knew science was becoming political, as evidenced by the “the science is in” attitude of many (but not all) politicians and scientists about global warming or climate change.

But HCQ, a $10 usually-successful treatment for the Wuhan virus used all over the non-Anglo world? Yep. Here, in the Anglosphere, it’s tied up with Trump Derangement Syndrome because the president touted HCQ early in the pandemic. Which meant the Mediacrats had to condemn it and did and still do.

Suppressing cheap HCQ

“Last week, [conservative] PragerU was locked out of its Twitter account for retweeting a press conference of eight physicians in Washington, D.C., which had already received 17 million views, and Facebook has just informed us that if we even cite studies that show possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine (with zinc) in the early stages of a patient with COVID-19, we will lose our Facebook account.”

HCQ is cheap. Vaccines are not. Big Tech and Big Pharma know best.

Ninety-five vandalized statues

Some toppled, some defaced, some beheaded. And multiple removals. Most Confederate, but also Christopher Columbus and a few anti-slavery abolitionists. All interesting to one degree or another.

The man behind the bunny

Really good docuseries on Amazon Prime. American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story. “Or, at least, how I remember it.” Remember he died at age 91, still rolling over in the clover with 20ish Playmates.

More Google censorship, this time of an epidemiologist who opposes the Chinese Communist Party Virus lockdowns. They’ve been relaxed here in Texas but not elsewhere.

This is Google’s continuing censorship of anything about the virus response that’s not US Gov. approved. Dissent will not be tolerated, comrade.

Pronoun comedy

“Soon, however, the conflict erupted again when Meriwether forgot and said, “Mr. Doe.” Even though he immediately corrected himself, the damage had been done. Doe again complained about Meriwether’s unequal treatment of students in class, saying that (s)he might hire a lawyer and bring a Title IX action against the university if something weren’t done about the professor.”

Really quite ludicrous, except for the suppression of free speech. Screw the little twerp and the judge who found for him. Her. It.
