YouTube Announces Total Ban on Videos Questioning Democrat Election Fraud

Wikimedia Commons, By VOA News

The online video giant YouTube announced a total ban on any new videos questioning the the outcome of the 2020 election on Wednesday.

The move comes in the wake of the so-called ‘safe harbor deadline’ for states to legally certify their voting totals having passed.

It seems that even legitimate concerns about the integrity of the election, including those raised by ongoing litigation will now be banned from discussion under the new rule.

As The Daily Wire reports:

YouTube announced its updated policy on Wednesday morning on its blog. The platform said that any video containing assertions that the 2020 election outcome was changed by “widespread fraud or errors” would get booted from the site unless “sufficient” context is provided.

“Yesterday was the safe harbor deadline for the U.S. Presidential election and enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect. Given that, we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections,” YouTube said in a blog post (excerpt below). “For example, we will remove videos claiming that a Presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come. As always, news coverage and commentary on these issues can remain on our site if there’s sufficient education, documentary, scientific or artistic context.”

YouTube’s decision to censor content that suggests the election was fraudulently won comes as legal challenges over the election results are still working through the courts. The Trump campaign filed an extensive challenge to Georgia’s election results last week, pointing out enough instances of alleged fraud that the suit could overturn the presidential election in the state.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday against the battleground states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin arguing that the states should be blocked from voting in the electoral college over alleged violations of election law. The court ordered the defendants to respond by Thursday. President Trump announced on Wednesday morning that the Trump administration would be joining the suit in support of Texas.

Apparently YouTube is part of “The Resistance.” Is Freedom of Speech going to be eradicated in our country? Most likely if the Democrats get full control of the federal government. Bye, bye America. It was good to know you.

It’s time to eliminate Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and hold ALL social media liable for their editorial decision to pimp for Beijing Joe.
In addition, do what the State AGs and the FTC are doing to Facebook, sue them using the Anti-trust statutes and break them ALL up.
Furthermore, investigate the social media companies for collusion with China and require them to register as foreign agents, including their CEOs. Then look for ILLEGAL actions and go fro draconian penalties, including prison for some CEOs.
We should use LAWFARE as well as or better than the socialist seditionist Democrats

amazing: smart guys can create great things, but as soon as they get a little fame, they become TYRANTS. STUPID DESPOTS. Hitler, Mao, PolPot, Duvallier, Idi Amin, Franco, Mussolini, and the biggest of them all: Stalin, google, twatters, fakebook and zuckerhitler. SCARED little babies who want to FORCE people into thinking as they do, those worthless idiots.

They did EVERYTHING they could to influence and derail the election and now, with full censorship in mind, they refuse to allow anyone to question the election that they so fervently helped rig. This is truly Orwellian. This country is doomed if Google and all the other tech giants cannot be stopped.
