Where did this horse narrative start?
I would really like to know, because anyone with half a brain can see that the establishment is desperately trying to cover up what this little drug can do.
We recently reported that Joe Rogan received Ivermectin as part of a treatment to help him combat Covid-19.
Leftists everywhere had a meltdown when Rogan came out to credit Ivermectin for helping him to recover from the virus extremely quickly.
Now we are seeing reports of a 2019 memo which indicates that The CDC had previously seen no issue in using the drug to rid human beings of intestinal parasites:
Just a reminder that in 2019 The CDC didn't have any issue with citing Ivermectin as safe and effective for treating intestinal parasites in humans. #CDC #FDAapproved #FDA #vaccine #VaccineMandate pic.twitter.com/Bf8cgvT6rq

This is your daily reminder that in 2015, doctors won a Nobel Prize for research done involving Ivermectin and human beings.

The memo was brought to our attention by Becker News:
“No, you should not ingest ivermectin, a drug formulated for cows and horses to treat parasites,” NPR reported. “No, it is not proven to prevent or treat COVID. The FDA is urging people to stop ingesting the livestock version, which can cause nausea, neurological disorders and severe hepatitis.”
The talking point was seized upon by mass vaccination proponents to dismiss Ivermectin as a potentially viable therapeutic, relegating it to nothing more than a ‘horse dewormer.’
However, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guideline for refugees issued in 2019 shows that it was a regular part of the regimen of preventing parasites from being brought over to the United States.
It's absolutely amazing. There's no peer-reviewed studies showing ivermectin is effective against COVID, but it's used as a treatment for numerous diseases in *humans*, yet journalists keep pretending it's only for horses out of either ignorance or dishonesty. https://t.co/4H55YpPiUs

Joe Rogan used ivermectin to treat his COVID-19.
The media is going on FULL ATTACK MODE.
Can’t let word get out about a $20 treatment.
When my doctor gave me ivermectin to treat my COVID-19, social media attempted to silence me.
Within 40 hours I was symptom-free.

NPR continued to take the typical left-wing response, and spoke in the tone befitting statists, while reporting on Rogan’s recovery:
His methods included taking ivermectin, a deworming veterinary drug that is formulated for use in cows and horses. While a version of the drug is sometimes prescribed to people for head lice or skin conditions, the formula for animal use is much more concentrated.
The Food and Drug administration is urging people to stop ingesting the animal version of the drug to fight COVID-19, warning it can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, neurologic disorders and potentially severe hepatitis requiring hospitalization.
Rogan added that his treatments also included monoclonal antibodies, Z-pack antibiotics and a vitamin drip for “three days in a row.”
“Here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great,” he said.
