Rand Paul Suspended From YouTube Over Mask Claims

Kentucky Senator and Fauci’s fiercest rival Rand Paul has been suspended from the video sharing platform YouTube after saying in a video that masks are useless against Covid.

The Republican Senator later tweeted that the suspension was a “badge of honor.”

Newsmax reports:

“They are now banning all my speech, including speech that is given on the Senate floor, which is protected constitutional,” Paul told reporters on Tuesday, Yahoo Newsreported. “YouTube now thinks they are smart enough and godly enough that they can oversee speech, even constitutionally protected speech.”

The platform’s policy bans videos that spread a wide variety of misinformation, including “claims that masks do not play a role in preventing the contraction or transmission of Covid-19.”

“We apply our policies consistently across the platform, regardless of speaker or political views, and we make exceptions for videos that have additional context such as countervailing views from local health authorities,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

In the video, Paul, an ophthalmologist, says “most of the masks you get over the counter don’t work. They don’t prevent infection.” He also says, that “trying to shape human behavior isn’t the same as following the actual science, which tells us that cloth masks don’t work.”

Another Republican was also silenced by Big Tech this week. Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was also hit with a seven-day suspension from Twitter for violating the platform’s Covid misinformation policy.

Twitter, Facebook, Google, AOL – all censor or block conservative positions. I have been blocked numerous times on AOL with responding to articles by saying “hello”. “Hello” violates their guidelines. They recognize me as being conservative and automatically block me – maybe forever?

Their algorithm would have to use your email address as a primary key to uniquely identify you and to spam you out. Try creating another account with a different email. That should work until they block you again. Conservatives seriously need to make inroads into the tech world! It’s dominated by hippies.

Not really because the person who was refused the services of the business was not denied their right to freedom of speech. They still got to tell their side of the story. These Tech platforms are denying any pushback. You cannot make informed decisions without hearing both sides of the story!

You tube is outra liberal as is the other big tech organizations. Dr. Paul need to sue these liberals since the violated the Constitution ( as Dr Paul so said). This should go to the Supreme court; however, who know how they would rule. Obviously Youtube, et.al. has no respect for the Constitution and freedom of speech.

Personally I’m not on any of those platforms. However, if this doesn’t scare everyone, frankly I don’t know what will????
Many are conservatives, but still using FAKEBOOK everyday. Kinda like people who say they walked away from professional sports, yet the stadiums are full, and those claiming to not watch……well, I don’t see the ratings falling enough or the profits suffering?????
I thought we were 80 million strong for President Trump???? 80 million off FAKEBOOK and not watching sports could really impact???
Me thinks????? Soooooo, what do we want, better yet, what do we really stand for?
I’m just asking because I’m frustrated!

Red fascism is in full bloom again. We defated the communist block and the nazi regime. Now the same system is here again spearheaded by Big Tech. Big Tech is a threat to democracy, free speech, scientific methods and human dignity. We saw KGB, Stasi and SS enforcing censoring so it is a normal socialist weapon. But Big Tech owners and enforcers belong in jail for crimes against humanity.

These liberal leftwing propaganda organizations (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Google, AOL etc.) are the worst thing to happen to the United States since Adolph Hitler and Hirohito!

These lying, phonies have made it their mission to destroy America. Their support of the Democrat Political Party and the incompetent fool in the White House is disgusting. They no longer serve the purpose that the media is supposed to play. They have their heads so far up Joe Biden’s ass that they can see his intestines.

They’re not social media either, they are totally political with the intent to stop freedom and free speech.

While President Trump was still in office, FAKEBOOK was already doing the groundwork to do everything possible for the success of 2020. Of course to insure that the DEMONKRAPS would win.
Mark Z literally interfered with the last election.

These tech companies are part of Satan’s plans to stop the truth from being told.
