And 400 mg is perfectly fine to take for as long as you'd like. It's when you get up to 600 mg that it causes blindness and other things. Now 6 days at 600 mg shouldnt cause MOST people to go blind but it will SOME. Downvote me if you'd like it doesnt change the FACTS. Just like it didnt 2 months ago when I got banned for saying all of this.

Correct. Just got into an argument with my neighbor over the drug. He referenced the Axios article. I told him it was retracted. He refused to believe me and more importantly he refused to check. That’s because he posted the article all over his social media.

Ive been dumping on lots of liberals on social media, its been great watching them try to defend this and then getting blown up with facts and figures.

I had a friend (shes a teacher mind you) who posted about Trump calling the CV a hoax and she posted some other dumb meme about Trump that wasnt true.

I posted only left wing articles that proved her wrong, yet she still left them up on her page.... "Because I think they are funny, they are meant to be jokes."

1
Taliesin 1 point ago

No - if there was "medial control" who do you think would be in charge? Leftists flock to any kind of bureaucracy where they can operate unseen like rats to rotten garbage.

The fake news hasn't stopped preening and singing their own self-praise since they took Nixon's scalp. "The fourth estate" - ha ha! They really think that highly of themselves! Or at least they did until recently...

President Trump's approach is working magnificently. If they lie, reduce their status. Don't argue with them, don't engage with them as equals in academic debate. That just allows them to strut about and lie more. They don't deserve that!

Show the world that they are bums. Because that is exactly what they are.

They're trying to convince idiot TDS afflicted Doctors to refuse to use the new drug combination on patients, which will increase our death toll.

They don't want to see the US's response to the Ching Chong Ding Dong virus outperform their socialist heroes in Europe. How terrible and narrative destroying would THAT be, if shutting the borders WORKED, if our "terrible" healthcare system WORKED.

How terrible would it be if we beat this virus like a tranny beats a female powerlifting competition, and the economy bounced back before election day?

This resistance to the drug from the media is so bizarre.. the media’s commitment to exploring new frontiers of the non-sensical is almost admirable

Imagine their reaction if trump had said “we shouldn’t pursue this treatment because it’s unproven”

49
Keiichi81 49 points ago

It's not bizarre at all. It's perfectly understandable. A cure/treatment means the pandemic is over, Americans can go back to work, and the economy starts improving again, which means the DNC and MSM can no longer run 24/7 "we're all dying because Orange Man" programming. It was also something Trump was touting and fast-tracking which--since anything Trump is for, they must be against--they dismissed and downplayed instantly, so if it turns out that it actually works then the American people will see that they were roadblocking a treatment that could've saved lives while at the same time blasting Trump 24/7 for people dying due to not having enough "lifesaving ventilators".

Their TDS committed them early on to a path where, if these drugs actually do turn out to cure people, the Democrats and MSM will be left with massive egg on their face. The best case scenario for them is that Americans continue dying, and in increasing numbers, with no end in sight. Anything else helps Trump and hurts them.

They are enemies of the people. They want you dead.

HumphreyBeans 13 points ago

Yeah, I use Paraguard for parasites which has a similar label so idk why anyone would think eating/drinking fish medication is a good idea. They're pretty clearly marked as not suitable for people!

PursuitOfTruth 4 points ago

"Why" questions work pretty well. Pretty well. As long as you don't come across with a narrative. The goal is to get someone to think about why they believe what they believe, what are they basing it on. At some point their brains will short circuit because they aren't used to critical thinking, and react with personal attacks, but they will ponder things over when sitting quietly by themselves.

We need to mandate information labeling. You can’t be called NEWS unless you meet these standards. There’s a special graphic icon you get to put in you byline/headline whatever and it makes you vulnerable to lawsuits if you fail.

BannedbyR 4 points ago

So what is the lie? The people did take the malaria drug but from a bottle design for fishtanks. I assume they overdosed which means they probably took 3000 units instead of 300

4
PursuitOfTruth 4 points ago (edited)

Uh oh, the voice of logic, watch out. You are right, chloroquine phosphate is chloroquine phosphate, whether in a jar for the aquarium or a pill that people take. Now, that's assuming that the aquarium stuff is legit and doesn't contain other ingredients. Medicine that people take has to meet percentage values and is tested to make sure as part of the manufacturing process. Lots of pills that people take have a lot of filler to create the tablet, I'm guessing they didn't realize that. Apparently in an interview the lady said they each took a teaspoon of the stuff, which I'm guessing would be like 10x the normal dose. So yeah in the end they were still dumb for doing it, a case of a little knowledge being more harmful. The other thing is that drugs tend to cause worse side effects in elderly people with health conditions or just being old, not to mention the high likelihood of drug interactions since they are probably on 1/2 dozen other things.
