INSTAGRAM: Susan “Cindy Brady” Olsen is anti-gay — this has been well-documented for years, and she was fired from a radio gig for it. Now, she has become increasingly a voice of anti-vaxxerism (and pro recall, etc.), recently posting an image of herself with ivermectin, the horse paste discredited as helping — at all — with COVID-19.
JOE.MY.GOD.: Veronica Wolski, a QAnon nutbag, became desperately ill with COVID-19 and was hospitalized. When the facility refused to administer ivermectin, which does not help with COVID-19, it received bomb threats. Now, she's dead. Good-bye.
