YouTube Canceled RSBN. I'm Canceling YouTube.
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.
Audacious. Absolutely audacious.
There's nothing else to be said of YouTube's actions in canceling RSBN for two weeks.
In case you have not heard, YouTube has suspended RSBN for two weeks because of RSBN's coverage of President Donald J Trump's CPAC speech. RSBN is the Right Sided Broadcast Network. It is a network that has amassed a 1.5 million member following through its coverage of President Donald J. Trump. The network became famous when it began airing every one of President Trump's rallies during his Presidential race. True to form, it also livestreamed the Former President's CPAC speech on Sunday, amassing nearly 4 million views.
But YouTube wanted RSBN to post "countervailing viewpoints" in its broadcast in order for the video to stay up. RSBN refused, so YouTube banned the RSBN channel for two weeks.
So, according to YouTube, it has authority not only over speech, but also of the coverage of speech. It's no longer enough for you to say only what YouTube wants you and authorizes you to say. Now, you can only cover the news that YouTube wants you to cover, in the manner that YouTube wants you to cover it.
According to YouTube, President Trump's speech violated its Community Guidelines, because he claimed that "widespread election fraud changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election."
Well, I've got a few items for YouTube and all the giant social media punks insistent on suppressing free speech. It doesn't matter how much you try to cancel President Trump, he ain't going anywhere. Moreover, it doesn't matter how many times you try to keep the approximately 60 million Americans who believe the election was stolen from hearing that election was stolen, they are still going to believe that it was! Why? Precisely because organizations like YouTube, the government, the press, and social media giants keep insisting that it wasn't.
We at thefederalistpages.com have been perfectly clear on the need for a full and transparent investigation regarding the results of the 2020 presidential election. We have said that until such an evaluation is completed, the overwhelming majority of the 75 million people who voted for President Trump is going to continue to believe the election was stolen. Moreover, while they continue to believe this about the election, President Designate Joe Biden will continue to be perceived as being inappropriately installed into the Office of President of the United States.
The fact that such serious investigations were not undertaken in a timely manner will only keep this cancer festering in the minds and hearts of the American people. It is obvious that the social media giants inclusive of YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Twitter have no idea the harm they are doing to themselves and to the nation through their insistence of repressing instead of exposing the facts regarding the 2020 election.
In an interview with Frederick Kemp, the CEO of Atlantic Council, Susan Wojcicki, the CEO of YouTube, said it was her company's intent to continue to block President Trump until "we determine the risk of violence has decreased." A statement, which stinks in its dishonesty, audaciousness, and self-aggrandizement.
First, who died and made Wojcicki the gage on the risk of violence?
Second. How about the risk of violence associated with the Anitfa videos, Black Lives Matter videos, and anti-American terrorist group videos? When are they going to take those down? How about the videos of government controlled Iranians chanting "Death to America"? And how about the violence-laden, foul mouthed, utterly disgusting music videos so popular today? Ought those not be taken down?
Third. Violence where? In Chicago? In Portland? In Seattle? If you're going to wait until the threats of violence diminish in those location, you might as well wait until President Trump gets reelected because I do not see that happening until then.
And finally, threats of violence according to whom? Biden and Pelosi? March 4th was supposed to be this chaotic day. It was the latest excuse to keep Washington, D.C. crawling with our own troops' guns pointed against us. Well, the big day came and went with not a peep from QAnon or any other scapegoated group. So, was all this paranoia from the Left about some attack on the Capitol based on actual intelligence, or was it made up? Of course, we will never know because YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Amazon keep covering up the truth!
I must finish with a request. Everyday, as I write these articles and investigate these stories, I wonder how long it will be before our own thefederalistpages.com gets censored? No matter what, it is imperative that we continue to fight to deliver the truth. The truth must be so overwhelming that its light must shine into every corner, every nook and cranny, where darkness, deceit and lies attempt to prevail. It is for this reason that I ask you to donate. Help us grow and help us be ready for the day these behemoths try to turn off our own beacon. Please, help us to fight the fight we all must wage together. Please donate by clicking here, or at the button below. Any amount will help and is greatly appreciated.
In the meantime, I'm interrupting my writing to open an account with YouTube's competitor: Rumble.
I'll see you there!
