YouTube has deleted a Ron Paul channel without warning, and has even automatically rejected an appeal to reinstate the channel.
The tech giant didn’t even bother to give ‘strikes’ against the channel, and the censorship was all the more obvious given that Paul rarely uploaded videos to the channel.
“Very shocked that YouTube has completely removed the channel of my Ron Paul Institute: no warning, no strikes, no evidence,” the former congressman tweeted. “Only explanation was ‘severe or repeated violations of our community guidelines.’ Channel is rarely used.”
“The appeal was automatically rejected.”

In other words, the rarely-used channel was deleted for engaging in “wrongthink.”
In the past, Infowars has repeated warned that tech giants were trying to push the Internet back into a 1960s television model in which only a handful of outlets (like TV stations) controlled from the top-down are allowed to broadcast to a wide audience.
Anyone who questions establishment narratives will not be allowed to have free-range access and influence over millions.
Recently, the focus of the Ron Paul Institute wasn’t really even on Covid-19 vaccines but rather the totalitarian lockdowns in Australia and other countries, which indicates that Google is now seeking broader control over Internet talking points.
Of course, it’s possible that YouTube will reinstate the channel if Google feels it has taken a step too far, too fast.
