YouTube Issues the NRN YouTube Account a Channel Violation Warning
In January of 2021, President Donald Trump visited the southern US border in Alamo, Texas. As part of his visit, he gave a speech in which commented, “Free speech is under assault like never before.”
He later gave a stark warning to Joe Biden and Democrats: “The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration. As the expression goes, be careful what you wish for.” Given Biden’s erratic behavior both before and after taking office, talk of invoking the 25th Amendment could start at any time.
Trump’s warning referred to Democrats’ suggestion that they might use the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. He called their impeachment of him a “witch hunt,” both in the speech and on numerous other occasions.
Trump’s speech was available on YouTube and other sources, including on New Right Network’s YouTube channel. This week, NRN received a “Community Guidelines” warning for the presence of the video, which YouTube says portrayed a “violent criminal organization.” That “violent criminal organization” is actually the 45th President of the United States and that’s how a massive entertainment website categorized him.
Should New Right Network receive another warning, it will be a strike; after three strikes, our account would be suspended.
The video was also removed from the NRN YouTube channel, while it remains on a multitude of other YouTube channels, including PBS News Hour.
It’s yet another gross example of censorship of conservative platforms and President Trump. As usual, Trump was absolutely correct: free speech is, indeed, under assault like never before.
