Big media wants to control the information that the public can see.
They don’t want people to see Trump’s opposing viewpoint.
YouTube tried to silence Donald Trump with this radical takedown.
YouTube won’t allow former President Donald Trump’s full 2021 CPAC speech on their platform unless users add “countervailing viewpoints” about Trump’s election fraud claims.
While Trump’s 2020 CPAC speech is easy to find, it’s far more difficult to find the full 2021 speech and then there’s the required added commentary about how Trump’s election comments are false.
Right Side Broadcasting Network not only had Trump’s speech removed but was also suspended for two weeks from YouTube.
YouTube spokeswoman Ivy Choi told The Daily Wire that the video violated their “presidential election integrity policy,” which was only implemented on December 9.
“We enforce our Community Guidelines consistently, regardless of speaker or political leaning,” Choi told The Daily Wire. “In accordance with our established presidential election integrity policy, which prohibits content uploaded after the safe harbor deadline claiming widespread fraud changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, we removed this video from Right Side Broadcasting Network. Content featuring footage from CPAC 2021 that does not violate our policies or contains sufficient educational, documentary, scientific and artistic context remains on YouTube.”
Google Support says that they’ll remove any content uploaded after Dec. 9 that suggests any past U.S. presidential election was fraudulent.
“On December 9, we started applying our Presidential Election Integrity policy (below) to the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, meaning we remove content that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election uploaded on or after December 9,” Google Support detailed. “We have begun issuing strikes for new content that violates the policy uploaded on or after January 7, 2021.”
Under “Presidential Election Integrity,” the site stated: “Content that advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches changed the outcome of any past U.S. presidential election (Note: this applies to elections in the United States only). For the U.S. 2020 presidential election, this applies to content uploaded on or after December 9, 2020.”
YouTube was very careful in the way that they updated their policy to only apply to the 2020 election.
There are videos on YouTube of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claiming that the election was stolen and saying “Trump knows he is an illegitimate president.”
The Democrats claimed for years that Trump only won the 2016 election because the Russians helped him but YouTube never felt the need to crack down on the story.
Hillary Clinton is allowed to express her opinion that the 2016 election was stolen, Trump is allowed to express his opinions on the 2020 election.
Neither one should be silenced.
It is through the free exchange of ideas that the truth becomes clear.
