YouTube censors Trump video saying schools should reopen

YouTube censorship: Video of Trump explaining why schools should reopen is banned.

Last week, I wrote an article on how social media giants Facebook and Twitter removed a Fox News interview of president Trump, where he explained why he thought schools should reopen.

My point in that article was to show that Trump’s reasons for wanting to reopen schools actually made sense and that his arguments were correct based on data we have on COVID-19 fatalities.  

I also provided statistics directly from government sources, which are open to the public for analysis.

Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, do not have the right to infringe on people’s rights to free speech.

If Facebook and Twitter were online publishers (i.e., New York Times, The Guardian, Associated Press, etc.), than it would have been a different story since liability is  involved. 

But the aforementioned social media sites are platforms, not publishers. They are supposed to be open forums for debate and discussion.

The other point I made in that article was that Facebook and Twitter, including the Fake News media outlets, slandered the president by intentionally taking his words out of context.

For example: Trump never said that kids are completely immune to the coronavirus. Quite the contrary, he made it very clear that he disputed such notion.

Trump’s point was that the fatality rate for children who were infected with the virus was so minuscule, that kids were “virtually immune” to it.

In that article, I posted a video clip of that interview on YouTube.  But lo and behold, YouTube deemed it too dangerous to society and decided to remove it, citing it violated their community guidelines.

Like Facebook and Twitter, YouTube has become an arbiter of free speech. In fact, they’ve been policing users’ speech for years. It’s just more obvious to everyone today.

Here is the email YouTube sent me:

The most absurd part of their email is where they write: “YouTube does not allow content that spreads medical misinformation that contradicts the World Health Organization (WHO) or local health authorities’ medical information about COVID-19”

So YouTube does not allow content that “spreads medical misinformation” that contradicts the WHO, an organization that has lied to the world about the virus.

Remember this tweet?

Clearly, the globalist agenda is in full swing and censorship is its most effective weapon.

While other videos of Trump defending his position that schools reopen are available, the original Fox interview has been banned and deleted from their database.  

Luckily, I still had a copy of the video and uploaded it to Parler for archiving purposes. At least Parler is a true free speech social media platform. And hopefully it will remain so.
