Thread: YouTube censors Rand Paul

    YouTube censors Rand Paul

    From POLITICO's 'playbook':

    NEW ... YOUTUBE has removed a video clip of Sen. RAND PAUL (R-Ky.) on the Senate floor, asking what Chief Justice JOHN ROBERTS blocked him from asking in the impeachment trial. The question included the name of a man many on the right believe to be the whistleblower.

    PAUL TOLD US THIS
    : "It is a chilling and disturbing day in America when giant web companies such as YouTube decide to censure speech. Now, even protected speech, such as that of a senator on the Senate floor, can be blocked from getting to the American people. This is dangerous and politically biased. Nowhere in my speech did I accuse anyone of being a whistleblower, nor do I know the whistleblower's identity."

    YOUTUBE'S IVY CHOI says: "Videos, comments, and other forms of content that mention the leaked whistleblower's name violate YouTube's Community Guidelines and will be removed from YouTube. We've removed hundreds of videos and over ten thousand comments that contained the name. Video uploaders have the option to edit their videos to exclude the name and reupload.

    So, now we're protected from what Senator's say on the senate chambers.

    Yes, I noticed last week that the video suddenly disappeared from Rand Paul's youtube channel -https://www.youtube.com/user/SenatorRandPaul/videos

    and right after that, it seemed like Rand's twitter account went somewhat "dead", that is, the only new posts on it were one from his wife followed by ones that were probably posted by his staff, not Rand personally.

    Seriously, this made me concerned for Rand's safety and I wondered what was going on.

    Tellingly, none of the Sunday "news" shows mentioned anything about any of it, when of course, it's big news!

    Will they set him straight?

    Hey senator, that BS of yours on twitter? Why don't you take a week or two off and see if it won't make things better.

    That’s the beauty of the totalitarian public/private partnership. Each one can do what the other can’t. The media and internet can censor your speech, and the government can send the SWAT team.

    Paul continued to rip YouTube for censoring his video, but cautioned against significant regulations for big tech companies.

    “What my goal is, is to try to look at barriers to entry for competition, and if possible remove any barriers to entry for new players that would compete against YouTube or Twitter,” Paul said. “As opposed to disrupting or destroying YouTube, or Google, or Facebook, I’d rather try to remove any impediments from their competition."

    Youtube should be fined into bankruptcy they should not be allowed to throttle , shadow ban, ban, censor any post
    or video that breaks no laws.
    Youtube is a public utility , that is fact.

    I don't know if youtube is publicly traded or not, someone said they are private, whether they are privately held
    or publicly traded, or registered as a non utility, they sure as hell are a utility imv.
    I'm relieved that Rand 'gets it' and youtube is on his radar screen, this is good news.

    But I keep getting told that private businesses can't be tyrannical.
