I have no idea why a state media shill like Gupta would agree to go on with Joe Rogan, but Joe Rogan held his feet to the fire about CNN’s blatant, shameless lying about the drug Ivermectin:
The whole segment is fantastic. Gupta was squirming in his chair and looked like wanted to be anywhere else in the world than in that room with Joe Rogan.
Rogan: “The rest of them [at CNN] are all lying about me taking horse medication.”
Gupta: *laughs* “No, no, no–“
R: “We should talk about that.”
G: “That bothered you.”
R: “It should bother you, too. They’re lying at your network about people taking human drugs vs. drugs for veterinary–“
G: “Calling it a horse dewormer is not a flattering thing, I get that.”
R: “It’s a lie. It’s a lie on a news network, and it’s a lie that’s a willing lie–that’s they’re conscious of. It’s not a mistake. They’re unfavorably framing it as veterinary medicine.”
G: “Well the FDA put out this thing, did you see that? It was a tweet, it was snarky, I admit it. It said, ‘You are not a horse. You are not a cow, stop taking this stuff,’ or something like that.”
R: “Why would you say that when you’re talking about a drug that has been given out to billions and billions of people, a drug that’s responsible for one of the inventors of it winning the Nobel Prize–“
G: “Yeah, in 2015. Well–“
R: “A drug that has been shown to stop viral replication in vitro. You know that. Why would they lie and say it’s horse dewormer? I can afford people medicine, motherfucker. This is ridiculous. It’s just a lie. Don’t you think that a lie like that is dangerous, when they know that they know they’re lying? You know that I took medicine–this is Ivermectin.” [Rogan had a little box of it on his desk and held it up.]
G: *laughs nervously* “You’ve got it with you. Alright, hang on, we’re going so fast, I feel like I’m missing–“
R: “Do you think that that’s a problem, that your news network lies?”
G: “Well, I don’t, I don’t, uh…”
G: “Well what did they say?”
R: “They lied and said I was taking horse dewormer. First of all, it was prescribed to me by a doctor–“
G: “Yeah yeah yeah. They shouldn’t have said it. If you got a human pill–because there were people that were taking the veterinary medication, and I.. you’re not, obviously, you got it from a doctor, so it shouldn’t be called that. Ivermectin can be a very effective medication for parasitic disease, and I think you said, what, a quarter billion people have taken it around the world?”
R: “More. Way more. Billions of people have taken it.”
G: “Can I just come back to the one thing, I want to talk about 2 things–“
R: “Before we get to that, does it bother you that the news network you work for out and out lied. Just outright lied about me taking horse dewormer?”
G: “They shouldn’t have said that.”
R: “Why did they do that?”
G: “I don’t know.”
R: “You didn’t ask? You’re the medical guy over there.”
G: “I didn’t ask, I should’ve asked before coming on the podcast–“
R: “They did it with such glee.”
G: “No, no, Joe.”
R: “I watched.’
G: “You watched?”
Joe then has Jamie pull up a clip of one of CNN’s many Frigid Bitch news anchor ladies saying that Joe Rogan took “a drug used for livestock.” CNN then showed the video Rogan himself made where he talks about the drugs he used to treat his Covid when he got it a few months back.
The whole video is just awesome, Joe Rogan absolutely goes after Gupta for his network’s malicious lies.
At the end, he really drives the point home:
“My point is, you’re working for a news organization. If they’re lying about a comedian taking horse medication, what are they telling us about Russia? What are they telling us about Syria? Do you understand that that’s why people get concerned about the veracity of the news?”
Gupta had no real answer. The video cuts off at that point. He says something about “nuance,” as if the problem was that CNN’s lies weren’t nuanced enough.
The point was made.
There are two broader problems with the media’s lies about Ivermectin:
- Like Rogan said, if they lied about Ivermectin being a horse medication–knowingly, willingly, shamelessly, blatantly, deliberately–then what else are they lying about? What else have they already lied about? What are they lying about to us currently? And why are they lying? Just for the hell of it? Of course not. What else are they hiding from the American people?
- Why is the CDC and the media trying to scare people away from Ivermectin? They all know it’s not a horse medicine. It can be used as an antiparasitic in animals–I know my dog gets it–but Ivermectin is a drug for humans. So why would the Powers That Be go to great lengths to lie about this?
Why are they so determined to discourage people from taking Ivermectin?
It’s a safe drug that has been administered billions of times around the world over 3-4 decades now.
But the media and the CDC don’t want you to know that. They want you to think Ivermectin is for horses and if you take it you’re not only an idiot but putting your life in danger.
