Facebook and YouTube Pull a Big Brother by Removing “Plandemic” Video

Published

on

On May 7, 2020, Facebook Inc and YouTube announced that they removed a video that allegedly made “medically unsubstantiated” claims with regards to the Wuhan virus pandemic.

The 26-minute long video titled “Plandemic” gained tremendous traction the past week all throughout social media platforms. It has clips of Judy Mikovits, a vaccine skeptic, who believes that a significant portion of vaccines are dangerous.

Mikovits expresses skepticism towards mask wearing, criticized shutdown orders, and other restrictions that keep people from congregating at venues such as beaches.

In the video, Mikovits describes the Wuhan virus as a conspiracy devised by people attempting to profit from vaccines. She also expressed various concerns about vaccines and the unintended consequences they could bring about.

The Wuhan virus surfaced in late 2019 and there has been no vaccine developed and or cure for it so far.

YouTube announced that it was working to take down the video in accordance with its rules against “content that includes medically unsubstantiated diagnostic advice” about the Wuhan virus.

However, on May 7, there were still slightly edited copies of the original video available on YouTube.

Twitter Inc announced that it had blocked users from tweeting out the hashtags #PlagueOfCorruption and #Plandemicmovie, but said that content in a shorter clip that was posted on its platform was not in violation of its policy against Wuhan virus “misinformation.”

The companies have faced significant pressure from the World Health Organization and other health authorities globally to censor harmful content and misinformation about the pandemic.

This is par for the course for social media giants’ desire to censor online speech.

They have a track record of doing so with regards to polarizing issues such as the right to bear arms.

Now, they’re taking advantage of a generalized crisis to ram their agenda through.

There will need to be significant reforms of policies such as Section 230 of the  Communications Decency Act in order to keep social media titans from completely shutting out dissident voices.

Reddit Forced to Amend New Terms of Service After Carving Out Hate Speech Exemption Against Whites

Reddit was called on their anti-white TOS.

Social media giant Reddit has been forced to amend their new terms of service after they were called out for their anti-white bias.

Quillette writer Colin Wright noted on Sunday that Reddit’s new terms of service seemed to create an exemption that would allow for white people to be readily discriminated against on the platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups,” the old terms read, referring to various whining victim groups, “it does not protect all groups or all forms of identity. For example, the rule does not protect groups of people who are in the majority or who promote such acts of hate.”

Even though white people are a global minority, they are demonized by so-called minorities in the few countries in which they do have a majority. It does not take much analysis to understand why the terms of service were written in this manner and which group they were referencing.

After they were called out for their anti-white policies, Reddit changed their terms of service yet again. They made the policy on hate speech more vague, and less explicit, but still allowing for whites to be demonized on their platform.

“While the rule on hate protects such groups, it does not protect those who promote attacks of hate or who try to hide their hate in bad faith claims of discrimination,” Reddit wrote in the new terms of service.

Big League Politics reported on how Reddit booted r/TheDonald off the platform earlier this week as they intensify their Orwellian crackdown against dissident voices:

The social media platform Reddit announced on Monday that they are banning r/TheDonald and many other prominent channels supposedly guilty of hate speech in a massive censorship crackdown.

In addition to r/TheDonald, Reddit will also be removing r/ChapoTrapHouse and over 2,000 other channels from their platform. Reddit is santizing their platform before this year’s U.S. general election, and they want to make sure information is as tightly controlled as possible. They are doing this supposedly at the behest of Black Lives Matter activists who complained that Reddit was not doing enough to censor the voices of their opposition.

“I have to admit that I’ve struggled with balancing my values as an American, and around free speech and free expression, with my values and the company’s values around common human decency,” Reddit CEO Steve Huffman said in a call with reporters.

Huffman claimed that users on r/TheDonald promoted content that they want to suppress, so the entire community must go.

“The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average (Rule 1), antagonized us and other communities (Rules 2 and 8), and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations,” Huffman said.

The new terms of service for Reddit contains a great deal of gibberish that can be essentially used to toss all speech deemed offensive to the left-wing mob off the platform.

Reddit is engaged in the Big Tech conspiracy to suppress conservative thought in the run up to this year’s presidential election. They ought to lose their special government protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act until they consistently respect the American values of freedom of speech and open expression.
