“Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) says he has had enough of the social media platform YouTube,” Julia Benbrook reported last week for Spectrum News 1, “He says he will no longer post to the popular site unless he is criticizing it. It comes after YouTube removed several of his videos, saying that Paul was spreading misinformation about COVID-19.”
We got an M.D. doctor here. And a U.S. senator. And he’s getting videos removed from his channel by YouTube about COVID-19. That’s the joke.
It’s unreal. It’s just fake. That’s all. You have got to be kidding me that this is happening. Is someone hacking my computer and filling in all the news websites with fake articles? What the H- E- double boots is your wayward child YouTube up to, Alphabet?
Now it is Facebook’s platform, so they can do what they want with it.
It’s their computers, and they shouldn’t have to provide their publishing service for free or even at a cost to anyone if they don’t want to.
So it is very libertarian of Sen. Rand Paul too, rather than call out the Washington hounds to regulate big tech for inconveniencing him personally (which is how too many American politicians and their supporters think it’s okay to go about government), to say:
“I’ve decided I’m going to quit giving them my content. I’m going to give my content to somebody who has a similar viewpoint to mine on speech, not necessarily politics,” in an interview with Spectrum News 1 for the article linked above.
The Kentucky senator will be moving his video uploads to Rumble. This video platform has recently become popular with conservatives after the 2020 elections and controversies over the public coronavirus response.
“They advertise that they’re a neutral platform that they’re not going to edit. I don’t think they advertise themselves as right-wing either. I think a lot of right-wing people have gone there,” Paul said.
