Mom Defends Ivermectin in Bizarre School Board Rant Blaming Bill Gates

A Florida mom hit out at the U.S. healthcare system for failing to administer Ivermectin to COVID patients during an angry rant against the introduction of mask mandates in schools.

The woman, who has not been identified, went viral after speaking during a special school board meeting for Seminole County Public Schools on Thursday, September 2.

Footage of her diatribe, in which she took aim at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Bill Gates, was posted to Twitter by attorney and former marine Ron Filipkowski. It has already been viewed 177,000 times.

The meeting was held to discuss the 30-day mask mandate introduced in schools that began for students on August 10.

In the clip, she claims that "hospital protocols" have been a major contributor to the death rates and hospital admission numbers being touted by "pro-maskers" as "an excuse to mask kids."

The woman, whose son attends school in the county, goes on to suggest vitamin infusions, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin all represent viable treatments for the coronavirus.

"These drugs have been around for years and have been used worldwide," she says. "Why won't they use them? Here's the key: follow the money."

She goes on to allude to the fact that part of the issue is that "Ivermectin is cheap" meaning there is less profit to be made from using the drug.

"Agencies like the CDC and the FDA do not work for the American taxpayers," the woman states. "They are non-profit corporations that work for companies, politicians and individuals like Bill Gates."

"For years, ethics complaints have been launched against these companies for the cozy relationships between them and the companies they are supposed to regulate," she adds, claiming that FDA commissioners currently sit on Pfizer's board.

"It's a revolving door of Washington cronyism and you expect us to follow their corrupt marching orders?"

The woman goes on to claim that the CDC has plans for "concentration camps" that date back to 2019. "They call it shielding. It's on their website, look it up. It details how to break up families," she says.

She also hit out at Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, rebranding him "Dr. Fakey" over his recent comments suggesting vaccine mandates in schools were a good idea.

The woman signed off by quoting former first lady Abigail Adams, saying: "We are determined to form a rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice."

Many of the claims made in the speech have been largely dismissed or debunked.

The suggested use of Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug used on horses and livestock, as a treatment for COVID, for example, goes against the recommendations of both the CDC and FDA.

Kentucky Poison Control has reported a spike in the number of people misusing ivermectin to treat the virus, while in Oklahoma, one doctor has warned that emergency rooms are being flooded with people trying to use the drug to treat COVID.

The anti-malaria drug Hydroxychloroquine, which was previously touted by former President Donald Trump as a potential cure earlier in the pandemic has also since been dismissed by scientists as an ineffective treatment against the virus.

Gates has no ties to the FDA or CDC and even hit out at the two public health authorities in an interview with Bloomberg TV last September, accusing them of bowing to political pressure from former President Donald Trump when it came to addressing the pandemic.

The FDA and CDC are both federal agencies. The claim that they operate as non-profit corporations was debunked by Snopes.

The original viral post had confused the CDC government agency with non-profit foundation the CDC Foundation.

According to Snopes, in 2020 the CDC received $13 million in gifts from the foundation along with a further $10 million from the private sector. However, Congress provided the bulk of its funding, totaling $8 billion.

The suggestion that the CDC had plans for concentration camps relates to a previous claim made by Candace Owens, has also been debunked by Forbes, which noted that many of those spreading the claim failed to read the first line of the document which explaining it was exploring the idea in relation to "humanitarian settings" like "camps, displaced populations and low-resource settings."

Despite her best efforts, the Seminole County School Board opted to keep the mask mandate in place.
