  • I see you censored my first comment. Afraid of the truth, Adam? Afraid that people will finally see that you’re a paid shill for a known short seller of CytoDyn, Joeseph Seigel of Buyerstrike.

    Another “article” full of lies and distortions. Direct from the FDA’s website: “FDA may establish conditions on an EUA necessary or appropriate to protect the public health.” (Link below) That sentence destroys the entire premise of your story and anyone reading it should not believe anything else that you write. You’re not even trying to be objective and it’s completely obvious here.

    Purposefully writing lies and distortions about CytoDyn is worsening the world’s COVID misery and you should be ashamed. You are an evil human being.
