YouTube pulled a Big Brother on September 23 when it decided to remove an episode of the Ron Paul Liberty Report titled “Covid Whistleblowers Expose Narrative As ‘Total Fraud’”.
Former Congressman Ron Paul’s twitter account highlighted the following:
YouTube has censored today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report discussing two whistleblowers challenging parts of the coronavirus narrative. They have issued my YouTube channel a ‘warning’ which they say could lead to the removal of my channel. I have appealed their decision.
In a piece for the Ron Paul Institute, Daniel McAdams explained how YouTube, which is “owned by Google, with deep roots in the deep state)” removed said episode without any explanation. The YouTube channel also received a “warning” for allegedly violating the platform’s “community guidelines” with regards to “spam, deceptive practices, and scams.”
Per YouTube’s warnings, RPI’s entire channel could be removed if it continued to partake in these banned activities. The former congressman sent an appeal asking what specific actions constituted a violation of “community standards.”
YouTube responded with the following statement:
After the RPI continued pressing YouTube on why its video was taken down, the Ron Paul Liberty Report received the following email:
In essence, YouTube does not like criticism of the World Health Organization, which McAdams described as “a United Nations bureaucratic body that has absolutely no idea what to do about the Covid health problem.”
McAdams also called attention to the fact that Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the WHO, is not a doctor and also has a radical Communist past:
As we have pointed out on the Liberty Report several times – probably contributing to our being targeted – the World Health Organization is not even led by a doctor, but by a violent Ethiopian communist politician.
In response to this censorship, RPI has set up a backup account on BitChute in the case that YouTube completely boots the channel from its platform.
In the meantime, followers of Ron Paul and his message can make a tax-deductible contribution to the Ron Paul Institute.
With how intense social media censorship has become, dissident content creators will need all the help they can get. 2020 and beyond will not be kind to content creators who dare challenge the status quo.
For that reason, liberty conservatives must stick together, help fund those who create insightful content, and build parallel institutions so that their message can get across to thousands of people.
