“this kind of censorship is very dangerous, incredibly anti-free speech… ‘YouTube is acting as an arm of government and censoring their users for contradicting the government,” Sen. Rand Paul
Does it matter to anyone in charge? Of course not!
Their policies are made up, evidence free nonsense and they’re being proven catastrophically wrong more and more every day
Dec 14, 2021 Facebook finally admitted the truth: The “fact checks” that social media use to police what Americans read and watch are just “opinion.”
Sen. Rand Paul, left, took to Twitter on Saturday to hit back at YouTube censors who kicked him off the platform for one week in August after the CDC changed its guidance on mask-wearing. He was kicked off the website for a week back in August for a video in which he said that cloth masks do not protect against the coronavirus, which a spokesperson for the video-sharing website said violated its rules about COVID misinformation. But the CDC is now recommending Americans do not use cloth masks, as they provide the least amount of protection.

In a statement to The Hill, a YouTube spokesperson said the platform “removed content from Senator Paul’s channel for including claims that masks are ineffective in preventing the contraction or transmission of COVID-19, in accordance with our COVID-19 medical misinformation policies.”
Paul said in a statement that “this kind of censorship is very dangerous, incredibly anti-free speech, and truly anti-progress of science, which involves skepticism and argumentation to arrive at the truth.”
“As a libertarian leaning Senator, I think private companies have the right to ban me if they want to, so in this case I’ll just channel that frustration into ensuring the public knows YouTube is acting as an arm of government and censoring their users for contradicting the government,” Paul added.
