PUBLIC STATEMENT | February 5, 2021
Several days ago, YouTube removed the video link of the president of the Front Line COVID-19
Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC)—Dr. Pierre Kory—giving sworn testimony to the Senate Committee
on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on official United States business (Dec 8, 2020).
The video that was removed was footage shot and posted by C-SPAN.
In the censored video, Dr. Kory testified that Ivermectin—an FDA-approved anti-parasitic agent—
had been shown in numerous controlled trials around the world to prevent and treat COVID-19.
In addition to the testimony video posted by a United States senator, the testimony video posted
by FOX NewsNow on their YouTube channel which was nearing 8 million views, was removed the
same day However, in this instance, the page indicated that FOX NewsNow themselves made it
unavailable, suggesting other interests are also suppressing information about ivermectin.
Here was one of the nation’s most brilliant Critical Care/ICU specialists pleading to the committee
to urge the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to review the scientific evidence that supported
Ivermectin as a way to not only prevent patients with COVID from deteriorating but also to keep
healthy patients safe from getting the virus while awaiting the vaccine.
This was not in any way dangerous or misleading testimony. This was not advocating any kind of
violence or ingestion of any toxic substance. Yet, YouTube unilaterally decided that Dr. Kory, a
leading physician, citing extensive scientific evidence, was giving “dangerous and misleading”
information, and so they took it down. In the midst of a once-in-a-century killer pandemic, a
scientific scholar’s official statements were silenced while he was attempting to inform the
government that there was a safe, proven and inexpensive way to immediately begin to save
lives, dramatically lower case counts and significantly slow the pandemic itself.
By its shocking action, YouTube pulled the curtain down on official public information that the
American people had every right to see. YouTube flagrantly disregarded the Constitutional
imperative of transparency in government and decided that it alone knew what was in the best
interest of the nation’s citizens.
During a devastating pandemic, it is arguably more dangerous for social media giants like
YouTube to indiscriminately discredit and summarily remove official government information
given under oath by world renowned medical experts… all while people are dying in horrific
