YouTube Punishes a Former Congressman and Presidential Candidate

YouTube punishes another content creator for engaging in WrongThink and opposing war.

When YouTube punishes Ron Paul for his political analysis, we can be confident that there is no one that Google (which owns YouTube) believes is too big for them to censor if they oppose the deep state. We knew YouTube was censoring conservatives like Paul Joseph Watson. But to actually stifle an American politician for opposing war is an incredibly intolerant move.

ZeroHedge reports, “YouTube “Economically Censors” Ron Paul, Labels Videos “Not Suitable” For All Advertisers.

Former US Congressman Ron Paul has joined a growing list of independent political journalists and commentators who’re being economically punished by YouTube despite producing videos that routinely receive hundreds of thousands of views.

In a tweet published Saturday, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange tweeted a screenshot of Paul’s “Liberty Report” page showing that his videos had been labeled “not suitable” for all advertisers by YouTube’s content arbiters.

Assange claims that Paul was being punished for speaking out about President Donald Trump’s decision to increase the number of US troops in Afghanistan, after Paul published a video on the subject earlier this week.

The notion that YouTube would want to economically punish a former US Congressman for sharing his views on US foreign policy […] is absurd.

Not too absurd for the Google censors!
