Jimmy Kimmel Returns to Amplify Debunked Ivermectin Story, Attacks Alex Jones

Jimmy Kimmel returned to the airwaves last night to amplify the debunked claim that poison control centers are reporting huge ‘spikes’ in calls from people taking ivermectin, despite the Associated Press having to publish a retraction admitting that this is not true.

“People are still taking this ivermectin, you know the poison control centers have seen this spike in calls from people taking this livestock medicine to fight the coronavirus, but they won’t take the vaccine which is crazy,” said Kimmel.

The comedian went on to chide people taking the drug for distrusting pharmaceutical companies, noting that it is sold by Merck.

“It’s like if you’re a vegan and you’re like, ‘No, I don’t want a hamburger. Give me that can of Alpo instead,” joked Kimmel.

“I leave you people alone for two months and you start taking horse worm medicine?” Kimmel said, adding “What a weird summer.”

The joke might have made sense if it wasn’t based on a manifestly provable piece of fake news.

As we highlighted earlier, the Associated Press was forced to retract its claim that 70 per cent of calls to the Mississippi Poison Control Center were about people ingesting ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

The actual figure was 2 per cent.

Rolling Stone Magazine was also humiliated after claiming that so many patients “overdosing” on ivermectin that Oklahoma hospitals were being “overwhelmed” and gunshot victims were going untreated.

The Northeastern Hospital System Sequoyah subsequently issued a statement clarifying that it “has not treated any patients due to complications related to taking ivermectin,” which “includes not treating any patients for ivermectin overdose.”

Maybe Kimmel’s team of writers should have alerted him to all of this before the show last night.

Kimmel e went on to joke that dumb Americans were depriving horses of the medication, deliberately omitting that there is a human version of the drug.

The controversy flared up again after podcast host Joe Rogan said ivermectin was one of the drugs he took to successfully recover from COVID, leading leftists to charge Rogan with pushing “misinformation” and encouraging others to take “horse dewormer.”

That prompted Rogan to point out that he was prescribed the drug by actual doctors.

“They keep saying I’m taking horse dewormer. I literally got it from a doctor. But CNN keeps saying I’m taking horse dewormer. They must know that that’s a lie,” Rogan said, asking if he should sue CNN.

Elsewhere in his monologue, Kimmel also attacked radio host Alex Jones for promoting ivermectin and taking it on air, remarking, “I’ve never seen someone that mad drink a Topo Chico before.”

Clarkson Fights Back: Goes On Offensive Against Woke Take-over

If you haven’t signed the Free Speech Union’s petition urging the CEO of ITV not to fire Jeremy Clarkson, please do so now. Meanwhile, Clarkson has written a blistering attack on the woke takeover of Britain in today’s Sunday Times. Here’s how it begins:

My son came over for a father-and-son pre-football supper the other day, and as he fussed over the Aga, making a particularly fine stir fry, we laughed about what innocuous word had been banned that day and who’d been cancelled. And then, after a pause, he said with a solemn face, “You do know there’s a war going on, don’t you?”

He wasn’t talking about Ukraine. He was talking about a full-on left-wing campaign to unstitch and burn the fabric of Britain. And the genius is that no one really knows that what they’re doing is serious. We laugh as they change the name of the Sir Francis Drake Primary School to something less slavey. We think it’s all a big joke. But it isn’t.

Think about what typically happens in a military operation and then look what the woke left has done here. It’s seized control of our television and radio stations to such an extent that last week Sophie Raworth said, on the BBC News at Six, with a straight face, “And over now to our LGBT and diversity correspondent …”

And TV drama? Unaffected? Right, and when was the last time you saw a fictional police force hunting a gang of Muslim extremists? It’s always the far right. And it’s the same story in comedy. Say anything you like about Boris or Rishi and the laughter track is turned up to 11. Make a joke about she/him pronouns or Greta Thunberg and they’ll blow a piece of tumbleweed across the stage.

In sport we sometimes have three women doing the punditry at a men’s football match, and if anyone remarks on this on Twitter, they are immediately singled out for the india-rubber treatment. And who’s doing the erasing? Who’s making the rules? That’s just it. We don’t have a clue. What we do know is that, having taken control of the television stations, without a shot being fired, they turned their attention, like any conquering army, to the schools. Here they went fully Pol Pot, doing a comprehensive year-zero job on the curriculum so that kids would know their parents were all racists. Apart from those with “unconscious bias”. Who were racists as well.

You probably think, because you don’t know this war is going on, that when you drop little Johnny off at the school gates he’s going to learn the nine times table that day. No, he isn’t. He’s learning that he might actually be a girl, which is why there are probably tampon dispensers in the boys’ lavatories.

With all this in place, they set about the police, and here they’ve done a tremendous job. Because, so far as I can tell, almost all the officers in the Met — apart from the terrifying number of sexual perverts — are now more wide awake than a frightened fox.

When some young people with green hair glue themselves to the road, large numbers of officers are dispatched to stand around looking at them. And they are only ever removed from the tarmac if they promise to go immediately to the nearest art gallery and throw some soup at a painting.

Has Clarkson been red-pilled by his recent punishment beating at the hands of the progressive thought police?

Worth reading in full.
