My hope is that I can stop writing about Peter Hotez here. The remaining topic I haven't covered are the unethical vaccination experiments he was involved in and how they relate to the much larger vaccine grift many academics are involved in.

Reading Hotez would make me gnash my teeth and tear my hair out. Thank you, Sir, for your sacrifice! 😀

About 5 decades ago, while in nursing school, I listened to an hour long audio tape of cries of babies/children and how to tell what is occurring. I remember DISTINCTLY the sound of the cry of a baby with CNS (central nervous system) damage. If Hotez could not identify that STAT, then he is NOT a competent doctor, by any means.

What's terrifying is how megalomaniacs like Hotez, Fauci, and I'll throw in, Biden, get in positions of power.

I would like to see this article adapted: edited for length, and far more brutal.

I consistently appreciate AMD's insightful writings. But I feel he was far too gentle and generous to Hotez in this one.

"In turn, one of the remarkable themes throughout the book is how often Hotez accuses the other side of doing what he is doing."

It's an old trick and there's even a name for a lot of it. It's called "projection," and it's a great signal for detecting liars as well as the guilty parties, so look for and pay attention to that especially if it's repeated endlessly or by some mediocrity or worse in a position of power.

I think Peter Hotez is vaccine injured.

MwD... Thank you for this vivisection (as Dr. Peter is still among the living, I think). Masterfully done.

I have very mixed emotions about this man and vacillate between loathing and pity for him. He certainly has sociopathic tendencies and is an obviously small-minded man who lacks self-awareness on an astonishing scale. He has been coddled throughout his career as he has been such a useful toady for his Corporatist masters.

I firmly believe that he knows how irrational his behavior and comments are deep down in his soul and much of what we see is denial of his failures in life as a father, researcher and physician. He understands deep inside that vaccines ARE linked to and responsible for the explosion in autism in the US (yes, there are other contributing factors, but this is #1). He can never admit that HE is complicit in his own daughter's ASD (if, indeed, this is what she has).

His entire life and character have been built around questionable - often fraudulent - "science" and he can never publicly admit that HE is at best an incompetent and at worst a murderer.

A very sad individual. I don't think that he will end well and I hate that for him and his.

While I believe that podcasts and alternative media such as Substack are important and certainly had an effect I am not sure they were responsible for the collapse of the narrative to the extent that Brett Weinstein states in the linked video. I think Omicron did more than anything to blow up the narrative. It was soo wildly contagious that everyone got Covid regardless of vaccination status and public saw this and the narrative was so obviously contradicted by actual experience it could no longer hold.

Thank you for your sacrifice. I’m sure it was painful reading his book.

Thanks Midwest Doc! Now I don't have to buy the book and have a book burning. Dr. H apparently doesn't understand the biomechanics of the immune system that is central to protecting humans from pathogens. Dr. Wakefield was erased from his profession because he pointed out that the immune system reacts to the MMR vaccine in some cases by creating an inflammatory response in the GI tract! A friend lost their young one because of a severe GI inflammatory response. It is no accident that the rise in vaccine injuries and the increase in the number of vaccines administered has resulted in exponential increase in the autistic rate in the US and coincides to the 1986 Vaccine Act that absolved the manufacturers from direct liability. It OPENED THE FLOOD GATES! Early on SIDS was purposely wrongly identified as a separate disease of unknow origin. My friends first born suffocated right after having been vaccinated. Amish rate of Autism to this day is what it was for all in America in 1950: 1:10,000! Home schooling and no vaccines. Now it is somewhere around 1:50 for new parents each year that have this unforeseen burden in life. Dr. H can't admit the vaccine caused his child's problem because he would have to admit his life's work was a lie.

I'm sure many people besides me have noticed how exactly like Michael Mann Peter Hotez is. Absolute malignant narcissists the both of them. Only they matter; no one else has any expertise; and anyone who disagrees with them should be destroyed.

Dr. Peter Hotez has an autistic daughter, Rachel, but has determined in his own mind it is unrelated to a vaccine injury. Cognitive dissonance or self-denial may attribute to Hotez's world view.

Rachel Hotez was diagnosed with autism in 1994 at the age of 19 months according to this article.

My water structuring process has demonstrated increased zeta potential. Zeta potential collapse is likely a key factor in vaccine damage. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/363480321_Torsion_Fields_Zeta_Potential_and_mRNA_Vaccines
