By The Federalist. Google’s YouTube has stepped up its draconian censorship of a sitting U.S. senator.
The powerful video-sharing company removed a video of a speech given by Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and banned him from uploading new videos for at least seven days. The action took place several months after YouTube removed two videos of testimony given at a hearing he hosted of the Senate’s Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on the topic of early treatment of COVID-19.
In the video YouTube censors are prohibiting the public from viewing, Johnson took bureaucrats in the Trump and Biden administrations to task for “not only ignoring but working against robust research [on] the use of cheap, generic drugs to be repurposed for early treatment of COVID.” . . .
Johnson noted that he held two hearings on early treatment for COVID-19. He said one of the people testifying at one of the hearings talked about “the four pillars of pandemic response,” those being prevention of the spread of the virus, early treatment, treatment in the hospital, and vaccines.
“It always baffled me that there was such a concerted effort to deny the American public the type of robust exploration research into early treatment early in this pandemic,” Johnson said, explaining why he wanted to bring more focus to that topic. He noted that studies have shown that “both hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin” are “incredibly safe” drugs. (Read more from “YouTube Bans Senator for Discussing Early COVID Treatment” HERE)
WATCH: Tucker Carlson Slams ‘Sinister’ YouTube for Censoring Interview With Doctor
By Daily Mail. Tucker Carlson on Friday night attacked ‘sinister’ tech companies for taking down his interview with a respected doctor who said that vaccinating young people was risky and ‘a colossal error in public health judgment’.
Dr Hooman Noorchashm, a retired cardiac surgeon with a PhD in immunology, who taught at Harvard Medical School, appeared on Carlson’s Fox News show on Thursday night after the CDC announced plans for a meeting over rare but worrying rises in cases of heart inflammation among young people given the vaccine.
‘After our conversation last night, he upload the data exchange onto YouTube,’ Carlson explained on Friday. . .
Noorchashm said that he did not approve of the vaccine being given to young people, because of their low risk of dying from COVID, and the fact that many already had antibodies from being infected, and recovering.
‘If a person does not need or stand to benefit from a vaccine, or any medical treatment, they should not be given it because it only opens the door to harm,’ he said. (READ MORE FROM “WATCH: Tucker Carlson Slams ‘Sinister’ YouTube for Censoring Interview With Doctor” HERE)
