🇺🇸@COVID19Up: On December 8, 2020, when most of America was consumed with Donald Trump, the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held a hearing on the “Medical Response to COVID-19.” One of the witnesses, a pulmonologist named Dr. Pierre Kory, announced great news.
“We have a solution to this crisis,” he said unequivocally, writes Matt Taibbi. “There is a drug that is proving to have a miraculous impact.”
Kory was referring to an FDA-approved medicine called ivermectin.
But at the worst moment, Internet censorship has driven scientific debate itself underground.
More recently on June 1, Bret Weinstein did a show that included an interview with Kory called, “COVID, Ivermectin, and the Crime of the Century.” That was swiftly removed by YouTube, with a notice declaring, “Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our spam, deceptive practices and scams policy.”
Another episode, “Why is Ivermectin not being used in other countries?” was removed with a similar warning.
Two more videos were either taken down or marked with warnings, and another, with Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of mRNA vaccine technology, was taken down during the writing of this article after 587,331 views, leaving Weinstein in a precarious position.
“If they give me a third strike,” says Weinstein, “that would represent more than half of our income.”
On Friday, June 18, The DarkHorse Podcast was hit with a third strike by YouTube.
The DarkHorse Podcast has been hit with a strike by @YouTube. It prevents us from livestreaming in the usual spot, Sat. at 12:30pm Pacific. They'll be surprised to discover that their censoring us has activated an army. We won't be intimidated or deterred. #FollowTheSilence pic.twitter.com/Np1auupnX9
