Tired: Ivermectin. Wired: Pfizermectin.
A good chunk of the hostility I’ve received over writing AxisOfEasy (so much that I’ve decided to hand it off to somebody less polarizing) is driven by the coverage of Ivermectin.
It was curious how a few weeks ago the “horse drug” narrative around Ivermectin was suddenly being amplified by the mainstream outlets, despite the fact that it’s an FDA approved drug that’s been used as an anti-parasitic for decades, and the fact that it was being used in India to combat an explosion of Delta Variant.
Now we learn that Pfizer is in clinical trials with PF-07321332, a developmental drug that acts as a “protease inhibitor” against C*V1D-19 for anybody already infected.
Oddly enough that’s exactly the claim made about Ivermectin, that it is a protease inhibitor. People tracking this are euphemistically calling Pfizer’s crack at this, “Pfizermectin.”
One wonders if the MSM and Big Tech will conduct a wide-ranging, coordinated campaign of marginalization against Pfizer should Pfizermectin be approved and be deployed.
