Brett Weinstein, self described ‘Intellectual’ who formed the “Intellectual Dark Web” with his brother Eric, goes on Joe Rogan, again, to promote Ivermectin as a miracle cure for Covid, despite FDA warning against taking “horse dewormer”.

Self described ‘intellectual’ claims it won a Nobel Prize, so it must be good for curing Covid, case in point, Joe Rogan, exhibit A!

{{sigh}}

A Nobel prize for reducing the incidence of river blindness and treating other parasitic infections!

Hard to believe the ignorance...

Hey, if cortisone cream cured the rash on your bum would you eat it because you have a headache?

I'm losing patience.

Blithering idiots, some of them, at this point.

As am I Nightingale...I've been posting some of the drivel they send me. Every "doctor" they quote has been roundly pilleried by his or her professional organization...and there is no reasoning with them.

Now Rogan is threatening to sue CNN for defamation by saying he took ‘Horse Dewormer’ when he got it from a Dr, who told him it won a Nobel prize for use in humans.

I say stop giving him bandwidth and influence. People's lives and health may be impacted if they keep pushing alternative treatment.

Joe Rogan is an entertainer who suffered a few too many concussions. I'm not against watching him if Ren & Stimpy is off the air, but for facts and judgment? seriously?

“Ivermectin
Ivermectin is a lipophilic macrolide usually used as a broad-spectrum anti-parasitic drug that also affects many invertebrates. In parasites, it acts by binding glutamate-gated chloride ion channels, which leads to depolarization of the cells and paralysis or death of the parasite. When directed against COVID-19, is thought to work by binding and destabilizing cell-transport proteins used to enter the nucleus. In an observational multi-center study with some 1,400 patients that is still under review, administration of ivermectin was associated with a lower death rate (7% versus 21% in the control group) and shorter hospital stays. Fewer intubated patients died in the ivermectin group as well (7% versus 21%). At least two trials are currently recruiting participants to test the drug; one is a pilot study in India that will compare ivermectin to standard of care, and another study in Kentucky will test the drug along with hydroxychloroquine.“

Compare that to what the FDA says,
https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/why-you-should-not-use-ivermectin-treat-or-prevent-covid-19

On why you shouldn’t take Ivermectin,
1. You ca OD
2. It has side effects
3. It could interfere with other meds.

Ok, so if you get a human dose, from a Doctor, who prescribes the right kind of human medicine, along with the kitchen sink Rogan’s Doc threw at it, and you have the capital to pay for expensive and experimental drugs, you too can beat it.

The problem is, lots of poor uneducated people in the South listen to guys like Rogan, who listens to guys like Brett Weinstein, who goes on Fox News and convinces idiots to go down to the Feed Store and get horse doses of Ivermectin and end up poisoned, in the middle of a pandemic that won’t die because these anti-Vaxers take horse meds instead of just getting vaccinated.
And the stupidity is literally killing hundreds of thousands.

At this point I’m vaccinated and have zero sympathy for anybody who isn’t vaccinated.
Religious beliefs should not be exempt.

He could have just as well jumped up and down doing a rain dance or chanted voodoo spells.

It wouldn't have made any difference.

What cured Joe Rogan was monoclonal antibodies, not ivermectin.
Rogan is a liar.

The "scientific community" says the opposite. STOP with the misinformation already.

You may find fringe sciency sounding things, but you'll know what the consensus is of the community by reading what the CDC and FDA recommend after reviewing ALL the data.

Jesus, lay off the Facebook Faux crap. It's killing people.
