YouTube has once again temporarily suspended Senator Ron Johnson’s “misinformation” on COVID.
Johnson has often criticized the government’s “authoritarian” responses. This time, he was suspended for a video panel discussion in which he claimed vaccines are unsafe.
“The updated figures today are 17,619,” Johnson said. “This is 225 times the number of deaths in a period of just 10 months compared to an annual figure for the flu shot. These vaccine injuries are real. “
YouTube said a shorter version of the video without the controversial information was still on the platform.
“We formulate our policies to reduce the risk of harm in the real world, updating them as official guidelines evolve and consider the context of a video to make exceptions that balance open discussion about people’s experiences with preventing the spread of harmful disinformation, “a YouTube spokesperson Lo said.
Johnson attributed the ban to Big Tech’s censorship.
“Once again Big Tech is censoring the truth,” Johnson said in a statement discussing the ban. “Why don’t they let the injured vaccine tell their stories and medical experts give a second opinion? Why can’t we discuss the damaging effects of the warrants? Apparently, the Biden administration and federal health agencies are not to be questioned. will other lives be uselessly destroyed? “
“The ongoing COVID censorship of YouTube shows that they have amassed too much inexplicable power,” he said said Fox News at the time.
