Well, it happened again.
Many of you began following me because of a video from late last year called “The COVID Cult.” After accumulating 1.5 million views between YouTube and Facebook, the video was taken down by YouTube.
(There was nothing wrong with the video, I’m sure you don’t need me to point out.)
That video wasn’t hosted on my YouTube channel, though. Not until yesterday have I had a video on my own channel removed.
It wasn’t really a video; it was just audio of one of my podcast episodes. Those of you who follow the Tom Woods Show closely know I release a YouTube version of each episode (with just a still shot of the show logo), even though most people listen via podcast apps.
The episode they took down:
“Ep. 1862 Ivor Cummins Answers Forbidden COVID Questions”
Thanks for proving my point, YouTube, that these questions are indeed forbidden!
If you’ve been following the COVID craziness you almost surely know the heroic Ivor Cummins, whose analysis of the numbers and the arguments has been outstanding.
Obviously I’ll start mirroring my videos on another platform, and I’ll begin the process of backing up my entire channel.
But listen for yourself: THIS is the conversation YouTube did not want you to hear:
Meanwhile, Twitter just tagged a Tweet by infectious disease epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff of Harvard Medical School with this notice: “This Tweet is misleading. Learn why health officials recommend a vaccine for most people.” You can’t like or retweet it now.
Here’s the crazy thing Professor Kulldorff wrote that generated that response:
“Thinking that everyone must be vaccinated is as scientifically flawed as thinking that nobody should. COVID vaccines are important for older high-risk people, and their care-takers. Those with prior natural infection do not need it. Nor children.”
Of course, I took my private group off Facebook for obvious reasons, even though I do still have a presence there (because I agree with Michael Rectenwald that we should try to reach people anywhere and everywhere we can position ourselves).
But it’s getting more difficult to spread the facts of what’s happening — and to find other people who think the way we do.
I hope you’ll join me inside the Tom Woods Show Elite, the haven I created for exactly this kind of purpose:
From Tom Wood’s latest letter
That Establishment censorship drive is an exercise in foolishness.
But just because it’s foolish, doesn’t mean they won’t try it.
No wonder there is such reverence for China nowadays in the highest circles! Where the masses do as they’re told, and don’t – can’t – talk back.
But all empires fall: theirs, and ours.
