Dr. Stella Immanuel and political eugenics

Were you triggered by the religious views of Nigerian born and trained, Texas licensed and practicing, Dr. Stella Immanuel?

Not only is she a passionate, powerful, and persuasive speaker and a professional black woman who committed the sin of going against the grain on an unreasonably politicized medical treatment. Worse: she was praised by President Trump. So, she had to be put under the political microscope.
There was a video of a press conference held on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, DC by a group called “Front Line Doctors.” The group spoke in favor of Hydroxychloroquine therapy for treatment of COVID-19 an included a Congressman from North Carolina and 15 to 20 doctors. Virtually all of the various online video tech hosts keep censoring the video, removing it almost as soon as it’s posted.
After reading about the censorship of the video, I was able to access a site and watch about 10 minutes before called away from my phone. When I came back, the video had been removed.
The five docs I originally heard (& possibly the 10 to others who were lost to censorship) spoke about their experience and preferences for treatment. Were any of the other docs the object of deep background scrutiny?
I disagree with some of the claims made in the video, especially the use of the word “cure” (rather than treatment) and with the opposition to the routine use of face masks to decrease exposure and viral load.

Dr. Immanuel only talked about her clinical experience. She spoke about successfully treating patients with Hydroxychloroquine for malaria in Nigeria and, along with zinc and Zithromax (azythromycin), as treatment for COVID-19 in her practice in Texas.
Ignoring the fact that the WHO resumed trials of Hydroxychloroquine June 3, the policy that masks were not helpful was promoted by both the WHO and CDC just a couple of months ago. Are the old documents from these organizations being removed from servers?
From what I understand, Dr. Immanuel is a preacher in addition to being a doctor. The things I’ve read about her sermons seem bizarre to me, but they remind me of a certain Chicago minister who had a few bizarre beliefs about HIV/AIDS, the US, and roosting chickens.
Nigeria has a different folklore tradition than mine in Texas; with a background of animalism and spirits, instead of our Greek mythology and Judeo-Christian history.
Cultural explanations and practices for disease have evolved, but traditions and habits persist: in the West, we knock on wood or throw salt over our left shoulder to chase off the “evil humours” that were the explanation for something that couldn’t be seen before microscopes.

I trained in South Texas, where I learned to ask about and counsel on the curanduras’ advice and practices. Curanduras still tell mamas to put pennies on baby’s umbilical cord to ensure an “innie”belly button and to place raw eggs under the bed to draw away sickness. Never was able to do as well with devotees of homeopathy & “adjustments” for asthma and “subluxation” or the irrational opposition to vaccinations.
I’ve had my medical and political credibility questioned because I’m a Christian. In contrast, I try to be respectful of people of different ideologies, evaluating their actual knowledge of science and practice of medicine, no matter what I think about their religion.
Would the theories of the origins of disease have been familiar to people from Dr. Immanuel’s culture? More importantly, does she understand and practice medicine according to the germ theory and current science?

There are no PROVEN therapies for COVID-19! Hydroxychloroquine/zinc/azithromycin is no more “unproven” than any other. It’s “unproven” that HCQ is unsafe.

(As of Midnight, 30 July, the video was available at https://www.bitchute.com/video/09K3kIwzeewO/?fbclid=IwAnR2E-LChNhpqOktcV4GPeT0ZS79cdf1tjdlnfNSlpGNWMCW6vVYYnHLCbjU so I was able to watch the rest of the docs.I am impressed especially by Dr. Joseph Ladapo, beginning at minute 33.)
