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:
Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?
“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.”
A badge of honor . . . leftwing cretins at Youtube banning me for 7 days for a video that quotes 2 peer reviewed articles saying cloth masks don’t work.
