YouTube Censors Viral Video of Doctors Criticizing ‘Stay-at-Home’ Order

Deleted after racking up over 5 million views.

Published

YouTube has censored a viral video in which two doctors criticized the logic of whether California’s stay-at-home coronavirus order is necessary.

The video, which had racked up over 5 million views, featured Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, Calif.

In the clip, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California,” prompting him to ask, “Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”

Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as COVID-19 deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame.

“When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from COVID?'” Erickson said. “We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that?”

The video was deleted late last night for “violating YouTube’s terms of service.”

Earlier this month, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki told CNN that the company would ban any video content that contradicted World Health Organization recommendations.

However, Wojcicki suggested that this would mainly be focused on banning information about fake cures, not questioning of government policy.

The video platform has also set about banning any content that claims 5G cell towers are linked to the coronavirus outbreak.

During an appearance on Fox News last night, Dr. Erickson pointed to Sweden, which didn’t impose any drastic lockdown measures, but now has achieved herd immunity against coronavirus.

“And if you look at their numbers: 200 deaths per million compared to ours, [which is] about the same. Italy’s [is] about 400 per million and Spain is about 400 per million, so we are looking at this going, ‘OK, they took a completely different approach and their results are basically the same,'” said Erickson.

Twitter Censors Trump Tweet For “Glorifying Violence”

“We’ve taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts”

Following the signing of an Executive order directly targeting Twitter’s censorship of President Trump’s posts earlier this week, the company has once again censored a tweet Trump posted, claiming that it “violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence”.


The tweet in question was a response to a third day of looting in Minneapolis.

Trump wrote: “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

In a further statement, Twitter claimed that the tweet “violates our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today.”

The company added, “We’ve taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts, but have kept the Tweet on Twitter because it is important that the public still be able to see the Tweet given its relevance to ongoing matters of public importance.”

According to Twitter, “As is standard with this notice, engagements with the Tweet will be limited. People will be able to Retweet with Comment, but will not be able to Like, Reply or Retweet it.”

It is clear that Twitter’s action is a tit-for-tat response to Trump’s Executive order, as it will likely only increase scrutiny of the tweet content itself anyway.

The company even tweeted about the censoring of the tweet:

According to reports, the decision to place a “public interest notice” on Trump’s tweet was “made by teams within Twitter and CEO Jack Dorsey was informed of the plan before the tweet was labeled.”

Trump had earlier tweeted a ‘test’ post to see if the company would again censor him:

There was no action taken by Twitter, a confusing situation given that it censored the exact same words in Trump’s post earlier this week, redirecting people away from it and to a barrage of ultra-leftist opinion.

The notion that Twitter takes action against glorifying violence across the board is laughable, given that the company allows literal death threats against Trump to remain on its platform every day.

The company recently allowed a thread comprising entirely of white people “getting their ass beat for black history month” to remain, as it racked up over 335,000 likes, despite being a clear violation of Twitter rules.

Twitter allows violent Antifa groups to post on its platform, despite the fact that they often openly doxx people.

“Twitter, do your thing” has become a dog whistle being used by digital hate mobs to cyberbully, doxx and harass minors. Families are being exposed to violent threats and nothing is being done to stop it.

Just yesterday, Twitter allowed huge amounts of verified users to spread fake pictures purporting to show Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin wearing a “Make Whites Great Again” hat.

The platform is even being used reportedly to sell child porn.

Twitter is not a level playing field, it routinely censors conservative opinion, and even apolitical material merely mentioned by conservatives, while leaving alone all kinds of filth and hate.

Hollywood Vapids Celebrate POTUS Being Censored By Twitter

“Welcome to Accountability Bitch.”

Hollywood braindeads celebrated Wednesday as it emerged that Twitter is actively censoring the President of The United States and directing anyone who reads Trump’s tweets to a barrage of leftist opinion overseen by a hardcore anti-trumper.

Here’s just a small selection of pointless out of work celebrities cheering the big-tech censorship:

They’ve long been clambering for Orange man to be silenced. Mere censorship isn’t enough for some:

While Twitter has instituted ‘fact checking’ on Trump’s tweets, other governments and heads of state, such as the Communist Chinese, have not been subject to such censorship.

Members of the CCP in China are free to regularly claim that the coronavirus is a US bio-weapon, intentionally released in China by the US military.

No fact check for them.

When Twitter was questioned as to why these posts were allowed without ‘fact checks’, while other people’s posts were being removed or censored, the company responded by saying it ‘makes an exception for government officials.’

The World Health organisation tweeted that the coronavirus was not transmissible between humans, at the behest of China.

No fact check for them.

Seems like its one rule for Trump and another for the Communist Chinese government, as far as Twitter and Google are concerned.

Senator To Google: ‘Kowtowing To Communist China Is Unacceptable’

Hawley says Google has “long disturbing pattern” of appeasing Chinese government.

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) penned a letter to Google this week asking for an explanation as to why the company censored YouTube comments that were critical of the Chinese Communist Party, rejecting a previous claim from Google that it was a ‘technical error’ they are trying to fix.

The case stems from a human-rights activist discovering that YouTube is seemingly censoring at least two Chinese-language phrases that the Communist government finds offensive.

The phrases are “communist bandit” and “50-cent party”.

When it looked into the matter, The Verge found that YouTube has placed the phrases on a filter that automatically deletes them, no matter what context they are used in. The report noted that it is a strange practice by Google because YouTube is completely blocked in China anyway.

Senator Hawley said in his letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, that the behaviour is part of a “long disturbing pattern” of pandering to the Communist party.

“This kowtowing is unacceptable,” Hawley wrote, adding that “Selling out American principles to curry favor with communist officials is no way to run an American business — regardless of who else is doing it.”

Prior to Hawley’s letter, Indiana Rep. Jim Banks also wrote to Google this week demanding an explanation as to why the company is censoring criticism of the Chinese government, even on videos uploaded by Americans and hosted in the US.

Google is actively censoring Americans in America in order to cosy up to the Communist Chinese government.

Is it time to regulate big tech yet?
