Another pull on the noose. YouTube will remove all vaccine “misinformation.” CHD was removed. In GroupSpeak it’s called deplatforming. In America it used to be called censorship. In N Korea it’s called loyalty to dear leader.
What if autism was the test? Once America swallowed the lies that autism is genetic and has always been here and could never have been from vaccines, the runway was ready for what we are seeing today. Once tens of thousands of kids were booted from school for lack of a vaccine, the jets were scrambled. Vaccines will be our nuclear missiles – protecting us from the evil viruses. The shadowy powers that be – and we claim NO inkling of who it is (both Republican and Democrat administrations have forsaken us) are on a mad tear to vaccinate. At any cost. At every cost. We’re still here. I hope our tiny size is our shield.
From a NYT article that we can’t link:
YouTube said on Wednesday that it was banning the accounts of several prominent anti-vaccine activists from its platform, including those of Joseph Mercola and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. , as part of an effort to remove all content that falsely claims that approved vaccines are dangerous.
In a blog post, YouTube said it would remove videos claiming that vaccines do not reduce rates of transmission or contraction of disease, and content that includes misinformation on the makeup of the vaccines. Claims that approved vaccines cause autism, cancer or infertility, or that the vaccines contain trackers, will also be removed.
The platform, which is owned by Google, has had a similar ban on misinformation about the Covid-19 vaccines. But the new policy expands the rules to misleading claims about long-approved vaccines, such as those against measles and hepatitis B, as well as to falsehoods about vaccines in general, YouTube said. Personal testimonies relating to vaccines, content about vaccine policies and new vaccine trials, and historical videos about vaccine successes or failures will be allowed to remain on the site.
“Today’s policy update is an important step to address vaccine and health misinformation on our platform, and we’ll continue to invest across the board” in policies that bring its users high-quality information, the company said in its announcement.
In addition to barring Dr. Mercola and Mr. Kennedy, YouTube removed
the accounts of other prominent anti-vaccination activists such as Erin Elizabeth and Sherri Tenpenny, a company spokeswoman said….
The accounts of such high-profile anti-vaccination activists like Dr. Mercola and Mr. Kennedy remain active on Facebook and Twitter — although Instagram, which Facebook owns, has suspended Mr. Kennedy’s account….
