The Grift Is Paramount

If you've been wondering why right-wingers are so invested in the use of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, neither of which has been proven to have any clinical use against COVID-19, the simple truth is that right-wing anti-vaxxers are making millions through online sales of these medications. Hackers provided information about America's Frontline Doctors, a group helmed by 1/6 insurrectionist Simone Gold

Besides being a classic example of affinity fraud, this is also an example of the 'hidden cures' conspiracy theory, the idea that all diseases could be cured if Big Pharma, the Illuminati, the Cabal, etc. weren't hiding them. Predictably, these 'cures' tend to be bleach, or black salve or ivermectin or turpentine

A vaccine paid for by the taxpayers and distributed without direct cost to the recipients? Can't have that, there's no cash to skim off the top!
