YouTube has suspended Senator Rand Paul (Idiot-Kentucky) for seven days over a video claiming that masks are ineffective in fighting Covid-19.
“This resulted in a first strike on the channel, which means it can’t upload content for a week, per our longstanding three strikes policy,” the spokesperson said. “We apply our policies consistently across the platform, regardless of speaker or political views, and we make exceptions for videos that have additional context such as countervailing views from local health authorities.”CNN:
Of course, Paul took to Twitter, who has yet to ban Paul for his fake Covid-19 claims, to whine about his bigly suspension:
Here are Paul’s claims YouTube said violated their policies:
- “Most of the masks you get over the counter don’t work. They don’t prevent infection.”
- “Trying to shape human behavior isn’t the same as following the actual science which tells us that cloth masks don’t work.”
Regardless of what “fullish,” Wing Nuts claim: Masks do work, according to the near-unanimous recommendations of public health experts.
The strike will be removed from his account after 90 days if there are no more violations. A second-strike in the 90 days would result in a two-week suspension, and the account would be permanently banned after a third strike.
