Midnightmom Posted August 12, 2021 Share Posted August 12, 2021 ..............and YouTube And you thought it was scary before!!! First they suspended and blocked the PRESIDENT of the United States, NOW they are blocking a United States SENATOR! Even what he said IN the Senate - Which is part of the CONGRESSIONAL RECORD! Quote Rand Paul rips into 'leftwing cretins' at YouTube after being suspended over COVID videos Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky lashed out at the "leftwing cretins" at YouTube after he was suspended on the platform over videos he published about the coronavirus. "A badge of honor," Paul tweeted on Tuesday from his official social media account. "Leftwing cretins at Youtube banning me for 7 days for a video that quotes 2 peer reviewed articles saying cloth masks don't work," he added. YouTube had previously removed a video Paul had posted of an interview of him on Newsmax. He excoriated the video website while speaking to reporters about his weeklong suspension. "They are now banning all my speech, including speech that is given on the Senate floor, which is protected constitutional," said Paul. "YouTube now thinks they are smart enough and godly enough that they can oversee speech, even constitutionally protected speech." The second video that was taken down included Paul's criticism of YouTube and a defense of his comments questioning the efficacy of masks. "Saying cloth masks work, when they don't, actually risks lives, as someone may choose to care for a loved one with COVID while only wearing a cloth mask. This is not only bad advice but also potentially deadly misinformation," Paul reportedly said in the video. YouTube said the videos violated their community guidelines. Paul has been an outspoken critic of mask mandates and pandemic lockdowns. He has called for Americans to resist and ignore the social distancing guidelines suggested by the CDC and implemented by some states. "We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children?" asked Paul. https://www.theblaze.com/news/rand-paul-youtube-ban-covid 1 Quote Link to comment
