CENSORED: Peter Hitchens Interview BANNED By YouTube

IN the latest example of censorship of views against the mainstream on the coronavirus, prominent Mail On Sunday columnist and journalist Peter Hitchens’ interview with YouTube channel Triggernometry has been censored by the social media site, leading to much backlash online.

Hitchens, who has been critical of the lockdown currently taking place in his native UK, citing the threat he feels it poses to its civil liberties and economy, discussed in the interview how it, for him, has been a ‘catastrophe’ and that it’s ‘going to be really hard’ for people to cope economically after it’s over. YouTube then censored the interview, as it doesn’t come up in general search results either on YouTube or on Google (of who owns the video-sharing site, and both are owned by Alphabet Inc.), as Triggernometry revealed. Both the show and Hitchens criticised this decision. YouTube argued that it was simply a case of it taking a few days before it was ‘reflected in YouTube search results’.

There was much backlash against this. LBC host Iain Dale called the move ‘very worrying’, and former Brexit Party MEP Claire Fox expressed ‘solidarity’ with Triggernometry over the issue. Adam Smith Institute Deputy Director Matt Kilcoyne called such a pattern of censorship a ‘danger’, and The Spectator magazine’s Steerpike also criticised YouTube‘s behaviour.

This is one example of many prominent public figures whose views on the coronavirus have had them censored by social media. This includes former football commentator and conspiracy theorist David Icke, whose interview with London Real where he challenged elements of the MSM narrative around the virus and its response led him to be banned from YouTube and Facebook, and Professor Karol Sikora, whose UnHerd interview was briefly taken down before being reinstated by YouTube over his comments that the virus would ‘die out’ before a vaccine is found. This follows the likes of YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki admitting in a CNN interview that the site would be taking down anything ‘that would go against World Health Organization Representation’.

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough.
