Pierre Kory Responds to My Questions About His New York City Experience
On January 26, 2024, he wrote:
Here are my recorded answers to the many questions you posed which was what was requested, I trust it will help you guys in formulating what I think will be a better hypothesis in my opinion.
I was a bit troubled by the "suspicion" of my integrity and honesty (and Sen. Johnson's) in some of the questions though. If you want to release the videos in public I have no problem with that but it was not my intent. I will say I displayed exasperation with a few questions so I am not sure I was on my best behavior (was exhausted) but largely was trying to be helpful and was attempting to displace the "suspicion" element of some of the questions.
Ultimatel[y], and with all due respect it is my opinion that the "no new novel pathogen" theory is dead wrong but those who believe it will never ever ever admit the theory is wrong no matter how much evidence I put forward so it all seems pointless. The simple fact that you guys have never addressed the fact that ILI or vaping only very very rarely lands someone on a vent is what makes the hypothesis absurd.
People were developing respiratory distress and landing on vents in unprecedented numbers. Unprecedented. Even if instituted too early, indications for ventilators were present in insane amounts of people suddenly, WHO lockdown or not. Enjoy.
I appreciate the 30+ minutes Dr. Kory devoted to responding. It’s true that he comes across as exasperated. However, because I’m similarly passionate and direct person who finds it hard to hide how I’m feeling in face-to-face interactions, nothing in Dr. Kory’s delivery offends, shocks, or dismays me on a personal level. I’m glad he felt comfortable enough to express his frustrations openly. 🙂
I’ll let Dr. Kory speak for himself and return to the substance of his responses in a separate post.
Note: Throughout the video, Dr. Kory says “you guys.” For example:
What I’m really worried about is that you guys will never admit that this was a novel pathogen even though it was. You’ll never admit that it was. You’ll keep going on with your theories.
This is a reference to me& - specifically, our Substack debate with Dr. Kory. (Us, Kory, Us again).
