There is blood on the hands of people who censor info that could save lives.

When it happens to trump.

When it happens to Madonna over the exact same video.....crickets...

Best to get medical advice from a large number of medical professionals based on peer-reviewed science.

Anything that claims to be a "miracle" or "conspiracy" requires extraordinary proof.

Internet corporations need to be barred from removing user content. If they want to put a flag on it that deems it false information according to them, then fine. But they need to stop treating adults like children and stop summarily hiding information from us as if we cannot think for ourselves.

...stop summarily hiding information from us as if we cannot think for ourselves.

The tech sector is populated with upper-middle class bien-pensant liberals who think precisely that of the great unwashed.

Tech overlords know what is best for the peasant masses.

That 'doctor' is an example of what happens to your mind when you're infected with extreme right-wing, conservative, voodoo religion, right out of the Middle Ages. It really shocks me that anyone would believe in all the BS about demon semen, and her explanation for the causes of cysts and warts.

Rosemary's Baby anyone?

And her claim about doctors trying to produce a vaccine that would prevent people turning religious. God, if only!

Stella Immanuel is “very interesting” to trump.

When black immigrants become doctors and defend the drug he’s obviously financially involved with it’s a liberal media witch hunt.

When black immigrants become congresswomen it’s “Go back where you came from”.

Very interesting indeed.

When vociferously anti- trump Madonna is ‘censored’ for the same reason is it still a liberal media witch hunt? What’s the correct terminology?

As usual, the media and those in power censors anything out of line with what is allowed to be said, regardless of the merits or how worthy of consideration. They don't love us. They only care about control.

The trump family are mentioned almost as much as Madonna in this news item. Good to see them back in the entertainment news section.

She is a doctor. It was her opinion. They are acting as publishers not platforms.

We can decide what to believe.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. She’s a flake.

I think she may be going senile....or she's pulling a Kanye Kardashian style publicity grab

Oh, ya. That Mark Zuckerberg is a real lib. Jeff Bezos? Suspected socialist. Elon Musk? Secret champion of the ACLU, SPLC and PAWs.

She is a doctor.

That's debatable. Isn't her wacky church next door to her clinic?

Madonna has spent the last 30+ years or so getting notoriety for her body construction, porno, lip-synching shows, and big dumb sex. Music?

She is now in her 60s and still acts like she is 20-something. And she's been more style, image over substance. Her Famous fifteen Minutes in the Limelight are approaching an end and she knows it. This is another attention grab attempt.

Today it's called 'new age'.

A very talented individual, who broke taboos and pushed the envelope. Had to wait years to see her, but it was worth it.

Which is what makes it all the more upsetting when someone you admire falls for this stuff.

She attached a video of U.S. physician Stella Immanuel who praised hydroxychloroquine as a miracle coronavirus cure.

That's not all the good doctor is known for.

Ya. We get it. You don't like Madonna. But her ". . . fifteen Minutes (sic) in the limelight . . . " has been more than 15 years.

All she inspired is those stupid pop tarts that emerged at the end of the century. That's not a good legacy. There are plenty of good serious women musicians out there who care more about music than they do image. As it should be.

And when were you awarded the position of Official Tastemaker for all women in music, then? You must be busy, having to decide for all women what they can wear, what they can sing about and so on.

Which is what makes it all the more upsetting when someone you admire falls for this stuff.

She always seemed smart and tough to me, certainly not the kind of poorly-educated, superstitious numpty who'd fall for nonsense like this. Maybe she just had a bad day.
