Del Down The YouTube
Yesterday, I received an email from YouTube that a video I had posted ages ago had been removed for "medical misinformation." The Video was Del Bigtree's Heroes video from The Highwire. Medical Misinformation is the PR flak buzzcode that was distributed across social media platforms, broadcasters and newspapers. Call anything "unapproved" "misinformation. Heck, even old Howard Stern used it on his Sirius XM screen description a few weeks ago. That's when the light dawned on me - "this is a campaign word." Howard would be more likely to call it nonsense, not misinformation. You want to talk about misinformation, YouTube? How about taking down every Botox'ed, false eyelash, hair, tattooed eyebrow, Spanx-shrunk, implanted celebrity's YouTube video for physical misinformation? Here's what the YouTube email said:
Hi Kim (Old name I no longer use), We wanted to let you know our team reviewed your content, and we think it violates our medical misinformation policy. We know you may not have realized this was a violation of our policies, so we're not applying a strike to your channel.
However, we have removed the following content from YouTube: Video: Del Bigtree Speech HEROES
We realize this may be disappointing news, but it's our job to make sure that YouTube is a safe place for all. If you think we've made a mistake, you can appeal this decision - you'll find more details below.
What our policy says YouTube doesn’t allow content that poses a serious risk of egregious harm by spreading medical misinformation about currently administered vaccines that are approved and confirmed to be safe and effective by local health authorities and by the World Health Organization (WHO).
What you can do next
We want to help you keep your content on YouTube, so please: Review YouTube's Community Guidelines. Double check how your content may have violated our guidelines. Appeal here if you think we've made a mistake. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to us here.
Sincerely, The YouTube Team

Thank you, Kim. You are brilliant.
This depth of censorship is terrifying.

MelissaD, thank you.
Laura, you are most welcome. Miniscule compared to your efforts. More to come from me; 600 will be nothing in comparison.

@ Julie handing those out was a great idea.
@ Kim I noticed something in the response you received from YouTube that I found interesting..."by local health authorities and by the World Health Organization (WHO)." Wonder why those 2 groups, but not 'found safe and effective' by the CDC or the federal government?? Oh wait, WE all know why!

600 slips of important information printed and handed out…impressive!…good for you! I hope that your many hours of travel followed by determined activism had a powerful impact! Thank you for your efforts!

Benedetta, I saw that video as well. Soon after, there was quite a hate fest against his wife. I have never been a fan of either of them (a bit too 'woke' for me) but I was impressed that they had that conversation about vaccines with Robert Kennedy. I thought that the level of criticism of her possibly feigned accent was a bit unwarranted but then, when the Rust set incident happened, I've got to admit, that the exact same thought you had crossed my mind. We are either both becoming paranoid (''I am so spooked right now I see evil people lurking at every opportunity.'') or we would have been extremely good detectives.
Laura, that Canadian girl set a good example for all of us. BTW, I handed out 600 (ran out of ink for more) little slips of paper at the huge Canberra rally last weekend. I made a quickly organised, last minute trip (19 hour overnight bus trip there, stayed the day for the big rally and then did the return trip overnight; barely a wink of sleep but worth it). There were three bus loads of us who did that trip. People came from all over Australia and it was amazing.
This is what the slips said;
It’s not just the Covid-19 vaccines. The pharmaceutical industry did not suddenly go rogue. Please find out more about other vaccines that have been mandated in Australia
1. Why Is This Legal?
2. Vaccines: What Is There to Be ‘Pro’ About?
3. Australian Vaccination-risks Network Inc. avn.org.au
There will be more to come.
Here's something funny that I read; Who does it better; Can-Berra or Can-Ada? We've got to have something to smile about!

I watched some weeks ago Alec Baldwin and his pregnant wife talk with RF Kennedy Jr. about all the goings on with covid and vaccines.
Alec Baldwin was were reasonable, supportive, and listening hard because he has young children.
Alec Baldwin hosted an hour-long conversation with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Wednesday in which the pair chatted about the coronavirus, vaccines, and the ongoing health debate in America.
"The virtual coffee conversation was broadcast on Baldwin’s Instagram account, which has 1.8 million followers and as of publication, has been viewed over 170,000 times"
That is a large audience.
Then a tragedy happens on the Rust Set.
I am so spooked right now I see evil people lurking at every opportunity.
Yes, I believe they will kill, smear, frame, do what ever it takes.
But I know that sloppy people with guns are accidents waiting to happen too.
For heaven sakes; the FBI up in Michigan actually had some 20 or so FBI agents manipulating a hand full of others in Michigan to go along with a kidnapping of the governor. One of the handful had the nickname of "Captain Autism" (that was his name, an homeless man that lived in the back of a vacuum cleaner repair shop).
What is a little censoring compared to that?

A bit of inspiration. Watch this impressive and courageous young lady stand up for her rights as she crosses from the US back into Canada. And don’t miss the pathetic, moronic automatons at the border with whom she interacts.

Middle finger to them all.
Our flash of life here on this earth has to shared with these pigs.

Everyone who thinks this is okay,
Consider a world where say 1 of 100 bags of dog food killed dogs.
But you weren’t Allowed to talk about it to your friends on Facebook or warn them because the pet food maker paid Facebook to censor you.
You don’t think this is on its way?
Had thalidomide been Labeled a cure for covid and been approved by todays CDC for pregnant women they would block you from showing baby pictures that showed missing limbs and silenced and ridiculed you for saying it might be from the thalidomide.

What kills me is that people who were bothered by Trump shouting, "Fake news!" about everything he didn't like are somehow totally OK with the current Jen Psaki telling Zuckerberg and all his pals that anything Biden doesn't like is "misinformation" or "disinformation," and they should shut it down. I'm trying to imagine the hue and cry if Trump had collaborated with Big Tech in censoring American citizens, or if he had called people who disagreed with his policies "terrorist threats."
At some point, we'll all have seen (in person) an athlete collapse, or know a triple-jabbed person who got coronavirus and died, so it won't matter what we're allowed to say on the internet, but it's obviously bad for society to have free speech die.
Keep fighting the good fight.

Well what anti vaccine "heroes" was Del talking about? I bet that would explain a lot.

This is what is known as “Newspeak”. We really ARE living in 1984. Scary/sad times for freedom of speech in any format.

COVID 1984. Please get the numbers correct....
If we ALL, ONLY EVER refer to "it" as *COVID-1984*, we will be doing something positive & constructive to move the narrative forward in a positive direction. Let me be clear, this has NOTHING to do with vaxxes/no vaxxxes, mandates, "viruses", etc. COVID-1984 simply means that this whole mess is at least ALSO a Global-scale PSY OP. ....GLOBAL-SCALE PSY OP....
No, I am NOT talking about so-called "conspiracy theories". The DOCUMENTED FACTS show that persons, groups, non-profit & for-profit companies & orgs, & Governments of all kinds, are EXPLOITING COVID-1984 to ramp up social control, and take away freedoms. More Gubmint power, & less free people is the goal of the Globalists. Klaus Schwab's book the "Great Reset" is our enemy's playbook. We are truly in a GLOBAL CIVIL WAR. Let's be real. And win. Who's with me?....Let's instead continue the GREAT AWAKENING! Thank God!....~Bill/...thank-you, AoA!....

which specific video is it from the Highwire website - there are several with the title "Heroes" but I want to know which one they are scared of so I can post it everywhere and call them out.

The ongoing censorship is positively frightening. Indeed it is the stuff of 1984.
