The YouTube War on Free Thought and Free Speech
Now YouTube is banning me as well!
Good grief. First Facebook bans me (presumably a permanent ban), and now YouTube is pulling my videos! Stalin and Hitler would be so proud of these Big Tech dictators and censors. The Marxist revolution is now nearly complete in the West.
Let me explain. I have over 50 videos on YouTube. Many of them are just audio recordings of interviews I have been a part of. Some are from Vision Christian Radio, and some are a series of CultureWatch Radio videos I have done with Andrew Smith.
They of course cover all the sorts of topics I cover in my website. So yes, they deal with various hot potato topics, and they seek to offer truth which the mainstream media refuses to cover. For daring to do this, Fascistbook had already banned me and pulled down my entire personal page containing tens of thousands of posts. See my writeup on this here: https://billmuehlenberg.com/2021/05/27/erased/
Of course absolutely no reasons whatsoever were given by the censors at FB as to why I was taken down. My crimes remain a complete mystery. All dictatorships of course operate this way. They do not bother with fair trials, a preponderance of evidence, or the idea of innocent until proven guilty – they simply obliterate you, literally or figuratively.
At least YouTube mentioned – sort of – why my video was censored. It seems to have violated their “Community Guidelines”. More specifically, I seem to have run afoul of their so-called “Medical information policy”! Yeah right. All that means is I dared to quote some scientific and medical experts who were willing to question the official narrative. For doing that I have been treated like an axe murderer or child rapist – or worse. This in part is what they told me:
Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our medical misinformation policy. We’ve removed the following content from YouTube.
Your content was removed due to a violation of our Community Guidelines.
Because it’s the first time, your account isn’t affected. You’re only warned once and this warning will remain on your channel.
If this happens again
-Your channel will get a Community Guidelines strike.
-You won’t be able to do things like upload, post, or live stream for 1 week.
This is so utterly bizarre and mindboggling. Are not these Tech Giants always telling us that they value free speech and want everyone to be able to share their points of view? Yet if you dare to say something that rocks the boat of the secular left ideology and agenda, it is off to the Gulag for you.
At least these guys offered a chance for an appeal. Given that the video was about the Rona and our responses to it, this is what I hastily put together as a reply:
There is absolutely nothing found in the video that is not being said by world-renowned medical and scientific experts on this issue. To pull it down, as one would expect in a totalitarian country, contributes nothing to genuine debate and discussion of important issues. Indeed, it is nothing other than blatant and disturbing political censorship. I ask that this post be returned immediately. Thank you.
Needless to say, I have still not heard back from them. Nor do I expect to. These guys are fully into the secular left Kool-Aid and will NOT countenance any contrary points of view, be it on the Rona, on global warming, on Trump, or any such topics.
They are not about free speech and the democratic right to offer varying points of view. They are about one thing, and one thing only: to push just one worldview and ideology, and to censor – in true Nazi fashion – any other opinions and views that dare to differ.
Um, in the 30s and 40s of last century Hitlerian thugs burned books on the streets. Today these same tyrants ban people on FB, pull videos on YouTube, delete tweets on Twitter, ban books on Amazon, and cancel contrarians on campus. This is the new fascism we now face in the West.
And all these groups and others like them have near-monopoly powers. They can get away with murder in their censorship and attack on free speech. We expect such things in places like North Korea and Communist China. It is not what we expect in the free and democratic West.
Of interest, someone who has known all about these bans, cancellation, and censorship from first-hand experience, President Donald Trump, is just about to launch a lawsuit against some of these Big Brother Tech Giants. As one report puts it:
Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, will sue Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook founder at CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a class-action lawsuit, according to a report in Axios. The lawsuit will be spearheaded by the America First Policy Institute, a group founded by Trump Administration alumni Brooke Rollins and Linda McMahon, and reportedly advised by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2021/07/07/donald-trump-to-sue-masters-of-the-universe-jack-dorsey-mark-zuckerberg/
I certainly hope he is successful in this and sues the pants off these tyrannical censors and hard-left dictators. These guys need to be put in their place. For too long they have been dictating to the world what we are allowed to believe, to watch, to read, and to think. George Orwell could not have imagined the enormous power these monopolistic woke giants have to control thought and free speech.
But let me return briefly to the subject matter at hand. As mentioned, the offending video had to do with the corona virus and the draconian lockdown measures being employed around the world by governments and leaders who seem to be drunk on power and control. And the video featured genuine, reputable experts who dare to offer differing takes on things like vaccines, lockdowns, masks and alternative treatments.
It used to be the hallmark of a free society to allow various points of view to be heard in the public square. Free speech and a range of opinions characterised the democratic and open society. Certainly, in the area of science and medicine, such a free flow of ideas and discussion of various options was how society could flourish and succeed.
It is only in Statist hellholes where all contrary points of view are banned. It is only in a society that is in its death-throes that open and free scientific and medical discussions are disallowed, and only one narrative can be heard. History should have taught us these lessons.
But sadly, we refuse to learn from history. Indeed, we are no longer even taught real history. Thus, we are easy pickings for the dictators and power-mad tyrants who seek to impose their will on the masses. Why does Germany in the 30s seem so very much like what we are now witnessing and experiencing?
By the way, while YouTube censors have eliminated this piece, it is still found on SoundCloud. Have a listen: https://soundcloud.com/bill-muehlenberg/culturewatch-radio-25
This just in from the Democratik Republik of YouTube: “We reviewed your content carefully, and have confirmed that it violates our medical misinformation policy. We know this is probably disappointing news, but it’s our job to make sure that YouTube is a safe place for all.”
Ha! A “safe place for all”?! You mean a safe place for all the sheeple and lobotomised peons who have decided that independent thought, genuine debate and discussion, and alternative viewpoints are a danger to the status quo, and to the Total State. Hitler could never have dreamed of such incredible powers of mind control and social repression.
Democracy is now basically dead in the West thanks to these fascist Tech Giants who control everything we are allowed to see, watch and think. Why does this quote from Orwell’s 1984 come to mind here?
Winston, you believe that reality is something objective, external, existing in its own right. You also believe that the nature of reality is self-evident. When you delude yourself into thinking that you see something, you assume that everyone else sees the same thing as you. But I tell you, Winston, that reality is not external. Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal. Whatever the Party holds to be the truth, is truth. It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party. That is the fact that you have got to relearn, Winston. It needs an act of self-destruction, an effort of the will. You must humble yourself before you can become sane.

GO PRESIDENT TRUMP
Satan is on the rampage through the determined agenda of the World Economic Forum and all (including the adversaries you have encountered Bill), who are rushing to play their part towards the WEF’s Great Reset to world communism. A point of interest: Klaus Schwab’s mother was a Rothschild.
Know that there is another Reset underway also – for immense good.
We must all be diligent in prayer upholding the many good people who honour God, especially in the U.S., who are working around the clock behind the scenes to implement the Global Reset for all that is good, whilst at the same time combatting massive evil (sadly political leaders in Australia appear to have sold their souls).
The evil players have inured populations to their fate via Tavistock programming, which employs fear- and trauma-based mind control, similar to Stockholm Syndrome. Most people will follow the herd and DEFEND their abusers.
“The information they censor is exactly what you need to know.”
“Truth sounds like hate to those who hate truth.”
Q: What’s the difference between ‘conspiracy theory’ and ‘truth’?
A: About 6 – 12 months.
Yes, John Abbott!
Be inspired by Trump’s rally, link below (most especially his rallying call to uphold freedom towards the end of the rally):
As one onlooker remarked: “The sleeping eyes of the world are slowly waking up to the awful situation we [Americans] are in. People are looking for something, anything to start making sense. Trump does exactly that. He sheds the light on the dark corners of this world, he calls out the traitors and their evil doings. These rallies are fuel for anyone looking for more insight, truth and hope.”
What intrigues me are the terms ‘our community guidelines’ and ”our medical information policy’.
Do we ever actually see these in detail? Of whom is ‘our community’ comprised? How does one become a member of ‘our community’? By whom was ‘our’ medical information policy developed?
Have you ever seen them, Bill? Or have you had to be content with such euphemisms?
It’s a pity you can’t censor FB and YouTube according to ‘your’ guidelines…
But, of course, your guidelines wouldn’t cancel them. That’s the point.
May the Lord continue to strengthen and support you.
Be proud that you must be doing something right to upset these cretins.
I believe YouTube own either 8%or 15% of Astrazenica, so, like other shareholders, Gates, Amazon and Google, it is in their selfish self-interest to shut down anything or anyone who may reduce their revenue from Covid vaccinations.
Apparently Facebook have $2 Billion invested in just one vaccine manufacturer.
If only we had some decent Western governments to support people like Trump trying to bring these avaricious hi tech tyrants to heel.
Thanks for that Julian.
I discovered your website a few months ago. Outstanding content! I just wish I had more time to spend here, lol.
Concerning censorship, these are indeed dark times. My brother got banned from Youtube just for comments and debating over certain videos. He’s not even a content creator. It’s obvious that YT provides value in the form of entertainment and learning. It’s sad that it has such draconian policies concerning how people (notably, conservatives) are allowed to express divergent opinions. Same thing applies to FB.
I hadn’t read “1984” for many years but did re-watch the film a couple of years ago. Those are some prescient passages you quoted.
Christians need bold voices such as yours. Speaking of such, it appears that American Family Radio just cancelled Bryan Fischer’s “Focal Point” program. He was another very bold voice. I don’t understand this lack of courage displayed by AFR. He was edgy, but a very powerful voice for the faith.
I will continue to explore your excellent blog and make a financial gift to support it as soon as I am able. BTW, I live in the “lower 48” (SE Louisiana).
God bless and keep you, brother. RV
Many thanks Randall.
So many Christians will just tell you “just sing louder Bill and ignore the antivaxx slogans being screamed from the box cars.”
I follow you on GAB Bill.
While we may go through tribulations now, they are for a short time. When the owners of these social media platforms go through theirs, they will be for eternity.
Bill, in relation to your Facebook ban, you might be interested to know that in February last year in an on-stage interview in Utah, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that he cares about giving you a voice.
It was in context of him speaking about his turning back from atheism to his Jewish roots. In his own words:
“I’ve become more religious. … I think there’s a comfort in knowing and having confidence that there are things bigger than you … it’s why I have so much faith in democracy overall, it’s why I care so much about giving people a voice.”
Thanks David. When he allows me and so many others back on, then we will know that he cares about our voices!
Just emailing to let you know of possibly the most disturbing thing i’ve seen on Youtube..
Matt Walsh exposes this horrific video of homosexual men’s agenda in a choir..
Of course they said there is no ‘slippery slope’..but we all knew there always is..
No need to publish this comment but you may want to write an article on this…
Thanks Jeremy. Yes I saw that. YouTube is quite happy to promote the moral assault on vulnerable young children, but will happily censor those who dare to go against their various leftist agenda items, including the Rona panic porn.
They are trying to say that song was parody yet that is the SAME excuse they gave about the book “after the ball” back in the day so we would ignore the truth inside. Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me!
In relation to Mr Zuckerburg, his religion and his faith in democracy, perhaps he (and we) need to consider these words, spoken over 150 years ago (I am equating democracy with civilisation):
‘My faith in civilisation alone, if it does not follow in the wake of Christianity, is gone. Civilisation is the handmaid of Christianity only when it is the result of Christianity. I dread the civilised, refined sins and immoralities of Europe more than the native vices of the Kaffirs.’
Rev Tiyo Soga (1829-1871), the first black South African ordained to the Christian ministry by any denomination.
The same people who own big pharma own most of the media
Mark Levin makes a lot of sense.
He is warning that American Marxism is on the rise.
Gab.com is run by an American Christian named Andrew Torba.
You could always move or post your articles there.
Thanks Andrew. Yes I am on Gab and I post my articles there.
Thanks Gail Foster. The video you posted looks important. I just finished watching the whole thing. Gail Foster’s video is not directly on Bill’s main topic. Nevertheless, as a sub-topic it does represent the bigger main theme of our time; that is, governments and msm media narratives concerning Covid. Extensive research appears to have been undertaken to produce this video. I commend it for your attention. It is well done and potentially fills in many gaps which have existed in my thinking. I believe it may become useful for sharing with some of our friends. I suggest you watch it and test it’s claims before sharing.
I work for an organisation called Internet Removals, who APPLY to have Google and Facebook (Fascistbook!) to remove content that is illegal, discriminatory, false or defamatory against an individual or organisation. We have to APPLY, and often be rejected, to have FALSE information removed. You are merely offering an opinion (and telling the TRUTH) and you are removed….by these same organisations who we have to fight with to obtain approval for removal !!…. This just shows where the “investors” of Google, FB and the like have prioritised their agenda – into the One World Order. Abominable. Keep speaking and preaching the truth (I know you will) as God will ALWAYS provide His faithful with the resources to be heard.
