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.

Rand Paul urges Americans to 'choose freedom' over any potential forthcoming COVID-19 lockdowns: 'It's time for us to resist'


Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is asking Americans to "choose freedom" over any further COVID-19-related lockdowns.

Paul tweeted a video Sunday urging Americans to resist any potential lockdown measures that may be handed down as a result of COVID-19's highly contagious Delta variant.


At the time of this reporting, the Kentucky Republican's video has been viewed more than 521,000 times.


“It's time for us to resist," he insisted. "They can't arrest all of us. They can't keep all of your kids home from school. They can't keep every government building closed — although I've got a long list of ones they might keep closed or might ought to keep closed. We don't have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again."


He singled out Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), saying that she will "not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs" if they refuse to wear masks on U.S. Capitol property.


"Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs," he insisted. "We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screenings and testings so you can continue your drunk-with-power reign over the Capitol."


He added that if President Joe Biden attempts to shutter federal agencies amid the pandemic with what he refers to as "anti-science" notions, he will pledge to stop "every bill coming through the Senate with an amendment to cut their funding if they don't come to work in person."


Paul also impressed the importance of keeping children in school despite the Delta surge.

“Children are falling behind in school and are being harmed physically and psychologically by the tactics that you have used to keep them from the classroom during the last year. We won't allow it again," Paul insisted. “If a school system attempts to keep the children from full-time, in-person school, I will hold up every bill with two amendments. One to defund them, and another to allow parents the choice of where the money goes for their child's education."


He continued, "Do I sound fed up to you? That's because I am. I'm not a career politician. I practiced medicine for 33 years. I graduated from Duke Medical School, I've worked in emergency rooms, I've studied immunology and virology, and I ultimately chose to become an eye surgeon."


“I'm not the only one who is fed up," Paul insisted. “I can't go anywhere these days without people coming up and thanking me for standing up for them. Whether I'm at work, or at events in Kentucky, at airports, in restaurants, or in stores, people thank me for taking a stand. They thank me for standing up for actual science. For standing up for freedom. For standing against mandates, lockdowns, and bureaucratic power grabs."


He concluded, "I think the tide is turning as more and more people are willing to stand up. I see stories from across the country of parents standing up to the unions and school boards. I see brave moms standing up and saying, 'My kids need to go back to school in-person.' I see members of Congress refusing to comply with Petty Tyrant Pelosi. 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? Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not? Not this time. I choose freedom."

I heard on the radio today that one school board member in Oklahoma said if children don't wear a mask in school they are the same as a murderer. Or something like that. 


I saw that headline too. 


‘Not okay for kids to commit murder for coming to school without a mask,’ school board member says


NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – One school board member in Oklahoma is responding after controversial comments at a Monday meeting drew the attention of the governor’s office.


Linda Sexton passionately expressed concerns just before end of the Norman school board meeting, specifically on how many students would be left susceptible to the COVID virus with no mask mandate.


“I’m very angry about the idea that children are going to be exposed to a virus five times more contagious than the one that we masked everybody from last year,” Sexton said. “If there’s any way between now and the beginning of school that we can get this changed, I hope we can because it’s just not OK for kids to commit murder for coming to school without a mask.”
