COVID in Texas, Yet More Censorship on YouTube

Media Silence on Texas

It’s nice to see Texas (and Mississippi!) get on side with the free states, this time around.

(After some unnecessary wavering… but life is like that, sometimes.)

The divergence between the two Americas is growing wider.

Remember Joe Biden’s promise that if we just followed the voodoo for a few more months, we might be able to gather in small groups by July 4?

Here’s a scene from Texas yesterday:

Texas and Mississippi opened fully a month ago. Here’s how it’s going:

Of course, you can imagine the screeching if those lines were reversed, and Texas and Mississippi were the ones rising.

But because the numbers look like this, total silence.

Incidentally, even if this were all to go away tomorrow, it would still be crucial to talk about these numbers. We have to do whatever we can to make sure people don’t think, “That sure was a tough year, but thanks to those of us who followed the mitigation measures, we got out of it.”

As it is, despite our best efforts — and my 2009 book Meltdown, which spent 10 happy weeks on the New York Times bestseller list — people still think “deregulation” caused the financial crisis of 2008, even though when you ask them which repealed regulation would have prevented the crisis, they can’t name one.

They still think laissez-faire capitalism caused the Great Depression. Those of us who have read Murray Rothbard’s America’s Great Depression, or know something about Austrian business cycle theory, know the truth. But that’s a tiny sliver of the public.

You’ll note what all of this has in common:

Freedom causes crises, and the alleged experts fix them.

You need us, citizen. We keep you safe. We clean up the messes caused by allowing you too much freedom. We are smart. You are dumb. Trust us.

Um, how about you go jump in a lake, and we’ll live our lives?

As I posted in response to the Ohio governor’s grandstanding during National Public Health Week, “The ‘public health’ establishment has disgraced itself with arbitrary decrees based on nothing. That anyone could still think any of these measures do the slightest bit of good after examining charts from other, less restrictive states is a testament to the power of belief over reason.”

Join me inside the Tom Woods Show Elite, which is filled with people who decline “expert” direction of their lives (and we’ve been off Facebook for months now, so don’t let that keep you away):

My takeaways?

Of course, you can imagine the screeching if those lines were reversed, and Texas and Mississippi were the ones rising.

But because the numbers look like this, total silence.

The media is not about keeping you informed: it’s about keeping your compliant, obedient… and ignorant.

Freedom causes crises, and the alleged experts fix them.

You need us, citizen. We keep you safe. We clean up the messes caused by allowing you too much freedom. We are smart. You are dumb. Trust us.

The Voices of Authority dislike challengers.

The Missing Colbett Report

In the meantime, YouTube disposes of the Corbett Report due to it’s Incorrect reporting on Fauci.

The Forbidden Fauci video can be found here. (Also here.)

A fun video from the Corbett Report, admired by North, can also be seen here.

The off-YouTube Corbett Report can be found here.
