I am sad, annoyed and angered to announce that a video of mine posted to YouTube on Tuesday, August 24th entitled “Your Job or the Jab” was stricken by YouTube for “violating community standards.”
Sad because now tens if not hundreds of thousands of people will be denied access to quality, carefully researched information that could help their health and their lives. Angered and annoyed because of the grotesque hypocrisy on display by YouTube, its staff, and every one of Google’s financial partners.
Such censorship has no place in our society. It is YouTube that is violating our cultural norms. They are acting like petty tyrants and authoritarians. How they are behaving is completely unacceptable to me, and it should be completely unacceptable to you as well.
It bears pointing out that YouTube is a place where you can get your fill of Flat Earth theorists. Somehow that brand of misinformation with vast oceans of countervailing scientific evidence against it is A-OK by YouTube’s community standards.
Or perhaps we might note that YouTube allows and actively promotes the abusive, extremely creepy, child beauty pageants:
These are well within YouTube’s “community standards” but they are very far outside of my own. The point here is that YouTube is anything but consistent, but they have turned into a censoring monster, actively working to suppress life-saving information in the midst of a critical time in a pandemic.
What did I do that was so worthy of censoring? I’m not sure because they won’t say, except I can note that I am not allowed to contradict the CDC, NIH or WHO (which I do all the time). Why? Because they get important things wrong all the time. I will place my track record of accuracy against those multibillion-dollar institutions any day and I will come out on top every day.
But perhaps it was that I dared to observe that hundreds of thousands of women have reported profound disruptions to their menstrual cycles after receiving vaccinations. This is a fact. It is also a fact that YouTube very recently expanded its list of banned topics to include mentioning side effects of “approved” Covid-19 vaccines:
I suppose the observation that women are experiencing profound disruptions to their menstrual cycles is a little too close to claims that the vaccines will cause infertility.
So in YouTube’s twisted worldview, it’s perfectly fine to opine that the world is flat while applying a thick coat of makeup to your bikini-clad 5-year-old, but it’s not okay to give voice to millions of women who have been impacted by the vaccines.
Perhaps most irritatingly, YouTube will be promoting some corporate nonsense about valuing diversity and being for women’s rights and empowerment, while they actively suppress a topic that desperately needs coverage.
Even if I am wrong about the connection between women’s fertility cycles and the vaccines, my observation about cycle disruption should be allowed to stand, be vigorously debated, and then shot down with data.
But my instincts and my track record both say I am not wrong. I’d place a lot of money on being right about this, too.
So let me remind everyone of some other key topics around which I was also badly out of step:
- Contradicting the WHO back on January 23rd 2020 when I first alerted the world to the pandemic on the loose. If YouTube was the same censor-happy company they have since become, that video would have been deleted.
- I was 100% against the CDC on mask wearing early on when they claimed they were useless, dangerous even, and then again when they failed to be in favor of proper masks worn in a proper way, but were instead for any sort of cottony gauze worn loosely. If YouTube was the same censor-happy company they have since become, those videos would have been deleted.
- My very early videos revealing the importance of Vitamin D, Zinc, Quercetin and Ivermectin all now proven to be effective at limiting the severity of Covid. If YouTube was the same censor-happy company they have since become, millions of people would not have received my messages about the coming pandemic, how to prepare, and what the science was saying.
I am horrified by what YouTube has come to represent for all sorts of reasons.
First, I am a huge free-speech champion. If people want to debate the earth’s flatness, they can and should do that to their heart’s content. I simply don’t care to engage with them on that, but they should do that if that’s where they are ideologically.
Second, the many predicaments we face in the future will necessitate all sorts of extremely uncomfortable conversations and decisions, some of which may be deeply embarrassing to the-powers-that-be. How can we have these conversations if simple recitations of the available data aren’t allowed?Third, it’s wildly dangerous to assume we know right from wrong at his moment in history. Science is anything but settled. In fact I would submit our most critical learnings are before us, not behind us. The only way we have any shot at creating a better future is by being brave enough to seek out and separate fact from fiction.
My staff and I are very concerned that YouTube will now reach into the past to retroactively label our earliest (and most accurate) Covid coverage as objectionable and cancel our entire channel. If they do this, an entire decade of work – encompassing the Crash Course and all of my Covid and other market coverage – would be stricken and we’d lose access to our more than 400,000 subscribers. We’d have zero recourse. There’s nobody to speak to, no persons to appeal to.
This is one of the many dangers of Big Tech.
The impact of being censored is chilling. We’ve already lost advertisers, meetings with companies we thought we might do business with, and worst of all, reaching our many subscribers with our special brand of fact-based ideas and concepts.
If the data provides us clues, I will bring them to you. If the data changes, so will I. If that data is inconvenient or embarrassing to the-powers-that-be, I will not flinch from the battle.
But know this — I will not change, and I will not back down. Wherever this all leads is where I am going — providing the exact same blend of hard-nosed science and intuition that has allowed me to be well in front of the lumbering health authorities and their censor-happy gatekeepers.
Now, more than ever I am going to need your help. How the future turns out is up to all of us. You can help us by sharing our messages, especially as we migrate to another much less well-traveled platform besides YouTube. We’re going to have to rebuild our audiences all over again.
My requests are simple. Help us grow and reach more people by sharing my work as broadly as you can. Come join us at our new platforms over at Odysee and Rumble. Each has pros and cons, so we’re carefully weighing which will become our new home.
If you aren’t already, please consider joining our paying members who both receive enormous benefits from their memberships, as well as provide us support as we continue to bring truth to a very resistant world. You can join here and continue to support our critical work.
Yours in Truth,
