If there’s one thing we know for certain about 2020, it’s that Big Tech is coming for all of us.
So long as monopolies like Google and Facebook control the internet, the days of free speech in America are numbered.
In the latest move in their censorship crusade, Google-owned YouTube has dropped the hammer on dissenters that challenge the MSM/Left’s narrative on the 2020 election.
On Wednesday, the top streaming platform issued a news release on YouTube’s Official Blog, which outlined new limitations on content they consider permissible.
Or in their words, the new guidelines will serve to connect “people with authoritative information, while also limiting the reach of misinformation and removing harmful content.”
How fitting that the company would choose wording like “authoritative” to describe their goal of dictating what people can and cannot say.
“Yesterday was the safe-harbor deadline for the U.S. Presidential election and enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect,” YouTube wrote.
Of course, they to mention three things:
- The Electoral College pledges their votes on December 14th to decide who becomes president.
- State certifications can be rescinded.
- The “safe harbor” deadline, as stated by Ruth Bader Ginsburg during the Bush v Gore case in 2000, is January 6th when Congress certifies the electoral college.
But regardless, YouTube says that, given the “safe harbor” deadline they have chosen, they “will start removing any piece of content uploaded [December 9th] (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election…”
“For example, we will remove videos claiming that a Presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors,” YouTube said, referring to allegations about Dominion Voting Systems and election irregularities.
Most egregiously, the platform continued, “We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come.”
Podcaster Tim Pool summarized the changes in a tweet, “You can still say there is evidence of widespread fraud. You can still say Trump actually won, You cannot combine the two, What strange times we live in.”

You cannot combine the two

Essentially, content creators cannot correlate widespread voter fraud with preventing Trump from winning. They also cannot say the reason Joe Biden won is because of widespread voter fraud.
This change comes just one day after nearly 20 states have joined the Texas lawsuit in arguing that Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia disenfranchised millions of legal votes by allowing widespread voter fraud.
YouTube’s latest changes inarguably violate users’ Constitutional rights including freedom of speech and freedom of the press as this policy applies to individuals as well as news networks that use the platform.
They announced that they have chosen to blatantly suppress our voices and will “ramp up” their efforts in the coming weeks as litigation heats up approaching the day Congress certifies the votes.
What we are witnessing is unbelievably tyrannical and fascist as it only applies to one point of view that criticizes government officials.
This is the kind of stuff that happens in North Korea, China, or any other authoritarian country that does not tolerate dissenters.
YouTube’s decision only further proves the point of why nearly 80 million people voted for President Trump: he values freedom, unlike the Leftists who will do anything to assume full control.
This just makes it even more urgent to continue pushing back against the widespread voter fraud that has all resulted in Joe Biden’s favor. If YouTube feels it is important enough to censor, then we know we are on the right side. If it was truly false, they wouldn’t be worried about the truth getting out. We must continue to fight for the president.
