Washington, D.C.: Phyllis Schlafly Eagles has been censored on YouTube: given a “strike” against “Community Guidelines” on elections and banned from uploading or streaming live for one week.
“Nearly three years later, Big Tech is still punishing and silencing people for publicly demanding transparency and accountability in U.S. Elections,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “I often refer to the left’s trifecta of political power in America as the ‘Narrative Machine,’ a deadly combination of Big Media controlling what you hear, Big Tech controlling what you say, and Big Government controlling what you do.
“The Narrative Machine’s power is on full display this week. We’re watching Fake News fawn over a public prosecutor in New York manufacturing crimes to fit his political enemy in Donald Trump. Now Big Tech reminds us they’re still marching forward against transparency, with YouTube digging up nearly year-old video to slap us with a ridiculous strike and content creation pause.
“Did we rant and rave about election fraud? No. Did we ask serious questions and propose transparency and security for the votes of all elligible Americans? Yes. The better question to ask is whether or not YouTube and their Google masters really care about a year-old video, or if their teams are constantly searching for ways to silence conservative channels. Any serious look at what’s happening in our nation informs us that Big Tech is still on the march to actively find ways to silence those they hate politically.
“YouTube can ban us for a week, but they can’t stop the movement for truth and transparency in our American laws and culture!”
