YouTube CENSORS Joe Rogan Interview with Consultant Cardiologist on COVID-19 Narrative

December 15th, 2021 12:05 PM

YouTube censored an interview between world famous podcaster Joe Rogan and Texas-based cardiologist Peter McCullough about the COVID-19 pandemic.

If the so-called experts are so sure that they have managed the COVID-19 pandemic well, they seem a bit over concerned about allowing commentators to contradict them. Dr. McCullough explained to Joe Rogan there was a “suppression of early treatment” in order to “create acceptance for, and then promote, mass vaccination.” The unverified Twitter account ostensibly representing McCullough posted a link to what appears to be his entire interview with Rogan on YouTube. A tweet from the account, prophetically quipped, “Alright, we'll see how long this lasts up, great chat with @JoeRogan on health & C19 #PeterMcCulloughMD.”

Sure enough, the video linked in the tweet has been censored by YouTube with a statement that reads: “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.” The “learn more” link routed to a Community Guidelines overview, including a link to YouTube’s so-called COVID-19 medical misinformation policy.

Rogan retweeted a link to the interview from the ostensible McCullough account. He also retweeted a condemnation of censorship shortly afterward from comedian Tim Dillon:

“You have to defeat bad ideas with good ideas. Censorship is a drug and once it becomes mainstream it will be wielded by both political extremes. How people choose not to see this is beyond me. But the idea of silencing ones enemies is powerful and apparently all consuming.”

Rogan previously warned in a Nov. 17 Timcast IRL livestream that Americans must confront Big Tech censorship and its impact on American politics: “All these, like, internet companies, whether it's Google or whether it's Facebook or Instagram, if they can just censor you based on ideology, then you don't have freedom of speech.” Rogan suggested Big Tech is functionally “some sort of utility” and cautioned: “when it’s literally one of the main two or three ways that human beings share ideas across the planet fucking earth, it’s bigger than just a company. And, and I don’t know what the solution to that is, but we have to have that conversation.”

Conservatives are under attack.
