There is so much wrong with “Plandemic” that you get bogged down debunking it.

There’s a word for the falsehoods/lies/confusion in “Plandemic”– what it is, it involves throwing up so many different things, under different headings, making implications, direct statements, negations, mentioning two things and implying there’s a connection between them, etc. that you just can’t keep up.

There was a lady (sorry, it was a guy) who used to do this, and her (his) name stuck to the technique. It’s called “the Gish Gallop.” From the RationalWiki, which I’ve never used before:

The Gish Gallop is the fallacious debate tactic of drowning your opponent in a flood of individually-weak arguments in order to prevent rebuttal of the whole argument collection without great effort. The Gish Gallop is a conveyor belt-fed version of the on the spot fallacy, as it’s unreasonable for anyone to have a well-composed answer immediately available to every argument present in the Gallop. The Gish Gallop is named after creationist Duane Gish, who often abused it.

Anyway, in all the excitement of finding the many, many fallacious arguments, specious statements, outright falsehoods, and so on in “Plandemic”, I forgot to mention that Judy Mikovits pushes hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) !

Now, right there, you know there’s a problem, because everybody who claims to have “the answer” to this pandemic pushes HCQ.

I won’t get into it with references and all right now, but there’s no accepted, good study of HCQ that shows any benefit to it. The latest popularized study had a major problem: many of the people who got HCQ also got a steroid, which we already know helps a lot in coronavirus (when it’s severe, anyway) and saves lives in ventilator cases.

So anyone who says it’s great right now isn’t listening to Tony Fauci and/or isn’t carefully reading the studies that are coming out/have recently come out.

So I call BS on Judy Mikovits (again!)
