(Natural News) Evolutionary biologist Brett Weinstein recently appeared on an episode of the “Triggernometry” podcast during which he revealed that it is no longer permissible to even mention the word “ivermectin” on YouTube or Facebook.
Because the anti-parasitic drug shows promise in treating the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), Big Tech has decided that, like hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), it should not be talked about ever.
According to reports, high-profile channels and pages that have mentioned ivermectin in recent weeks have seen their videos removed or accounts suspended for violating the “community standards” of major tech platforms.
In a recent article, independent journalist Matt Taibbi posed the question, “Why has ‘ivermectin’ become a dirty word?” In it, he cited Dr. Pierre Kory, who testified before a U.S. Senate committee about the benefits of ivermectin in treating the Chinese Virus.
At one point, Dr. Kory referred to ivermectin as a “wonder drug,” which among other things prompted YouTube to pull the footage from its platform for allegedly spreading “misinformation.” The testimony was also televised and viewed by approximately eight million people.
Not only did YouTube pull the video, but it also deleted Dr. Kory’s entire channel on the basis that he was putting people’s lives at risk by telling them about something other than masks and vaccines that might keep them safe against the Wuhan Flu.
The Associated Press (AP) also “fact-checked” Dr. Kory’s testimony, deciding that “there is no evidence that ivermectin is a ‘miracle drug’ against COVID.” The AP then labeled it as “false information.”
“First, I find it a little presumptuous for a wire service to be fact checking senate testimony,” writes Mark E. Jeftovic of Bomb Thrower. “Isn’t the job of the committee holding the hearing largely that of fact-finding? Isn’t that the entire point?”
