YouTube Fascists Ban Rand Paul Over Comments On Masks

Last week, the Daily Wire and others reported, all-knowing fascists at YouTube censored Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., after an interview with a Newsmax journalist where they discussed “a variety of topics, including the science behind masks.”

Now, the Daily Wire reports, YouTube removed the video and banned Paul for seven days.

“Censorship by YouTube is very dangerous as it stifles debate and promotes groupthink where the ‘truth’ is defined by people with a political agenda,” he said in response to YouTube’s actions.

The Daily Wire added:

The video, titled “It Is Time For Unfiltered News,” was also removed by YouTube. “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines,” stated the Google-owned Big Tech giant.

“YouTube said the video violated their policy because of my comments on masks, and that they don’t allow videos that contradict government’s guidance on COVID,” Senator Paul stated in the now-deleted response video.

During a press call earlier on Tuesday, Senator Paul condemned the apparent link between Big Tech corporations, such as YouTube, and the country’s legislature.

“I’m not sure when YouTube became an arm of the government, and I’m not really sure it’s good for journalism to also be an arm of the government without any repercussions or push back,” he said.

Paul also connected YouTube’s decision to the field of journalism, The Daily Wire said:

“Journalism isn’t far from that and in some ways, the adversarial part of the courtroom is ideally what you would find in journalism, where both sides would present facts, there is a period of argumentation and people figure out the truth for themselves,” he said. “YouTube and Google though, have become an entity so huge that they think they are the arbitrator of truth.”

Senator Paul concluded by directly referencing the ongoing effort to “break up” Big Tech corporations.

“I will try to channel my anger, not in breaking these companies up but by publicly expressing my disagreement with them and publicly promoting other channels that offer free speech alternatives,” he said.

He also derided YouTube as being run by “cretins.”

Google, the company that owns YouTube, is one of three currently being sued by former President Trump.
