Politics : YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

In a blog post, YouTube said that it would remove videos claiming that vaccines do not reduce transmission or contraction of disease, and content that includes misinformation on the contents of the vaccines. Claims that approved vaccines cause autism, cancer or infertility, or that the vaccines contain trackers will also be removed.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Oh Jesus, no. Can’t allow anyone to think for themselves.

I’m a proponent of the vaccine. I want people vaccinated. Still, even more than that, I want people to think for themselves.

The covid vaccine is inherently more risky than like treatments for, say, the flu. The process was expedited. I can see why people are skeptical about it.

The CDC’s messaging has been mixed since before the onset of this pandemic. No wonder some people don’t trust them. Same with the federal government, from Trump to Biden.

The general takeaway I get from all of this is our knowledge about the vaccine and about covid is shaky and ambiguous. So, even though I have and advocate for the vaccine, I have a general feeling of distrust about what the government recommends we do about covid.. This whole thing about forcing the private sector to vaccinate employees is unconstitutional.

Anyways, YouTube has the “right” to do this. I just don’t think it’s the right thing to do.

FACT.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

I agree. People should be able to make up their own minds instead of YouTube doing it for them.

I've seen some videos and posts on social media labeled "misinformation" (about various subjects) just because it was a point of view different from the platform's CEO (or whoever it is who determines what the "correct" point of view is).

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Youtube banned me cos I linked Covid 19 to the HIV Africa scandal of the 1930s and 4 years before I predicted this so called Pandemic when discussing Charlie Sheen.

Spooky I know, shooter has loads of conspiracy theories. Some true and some yet to be uncovered, my current one is that Greta was born a man and is on some kind of harmone tablet!

Or in how many recipes do sweet corn and tuna make delicious music? I wanted to see that video on ShooterVision on the YouTube!

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

I see no reason why filming the real life exploits of Shooter wouldn't be comedy gold.

Just play it all on fast forward and set to the Benny Hill music = rating success.

@CrystalRaindrops


Here is another thing to think about or another angle to consider…

I suspect the main motivation for them doing this could be to avoid any potential lawsuits.
"He died because he was told to drink bleach as was suggested in a YT vid that was inspired by what Trump says. Since Trump is harder to sue, we are going after YT."

If that is the case or with that in mind, I can't blame them with how lawsuit crazy this country is for the littlest and dumbest things that bring up frivolous lawsuits instead of individuals taking personal responsibility for their own harmful and deadly mistakes.
It is always someone else's fault and never their own.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Yeah that’s a pretty smart viewpoint. I think I agree with you

FACT.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Thanx for that positive feedback.

Stay safe.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

I disagree with myself. The Vegetarian guy raised what I believe is the correct point about why YT is behaving in an apparently childish manner. It’s good business sense to reduce risk exposure and prevent potential lawsuits. Same reason why Amazon terminated the Indb boards.

FACT.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

I mentioned the lawsuit theory in this thread yesterday. I guess you guys missed it. I said, "Maybe YouTube is afraid of being sued, in the unlikely event that someone ends up claiming their family member died because they watched an anti-vaccine video on YouTube."

If YouTube is banning those videos because they're afraid of lawsuits, then where does it end? There are a lot of videos on the site that could potentially lead to lawsuits, such as the dangerous stunt videos mentioned later in this thread; people could copy a stunt they saw on YouTube and try to sue YouTube because they got hurt.

If YouTube (the people at YouTube who made this decision) is that afraid of lawsuits, they should either close the site or just allow videos nobody could find offensive or claim caused them harm, like funny cat videos, videos of shirtless Chris Pratt glistening from sweat while working out, etc.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Yeah, I saw that you brought it up first after I did.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Do we know anything about covid related suits? Maybe there are enough of them to justify the decision. Versus one off yt video inspired lawsuits, the covid thing may be a phenomena

FACT.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

I just did a quick search (so I haven't done thorough research), but most of the results I found related to YouTube lawsuits were about privacy laws. There were a few results related to "purged conservative YouTube channels."

If Google (who owns YouTube) is afraid of lawsuits, I think they're more afraid of pharmaceutical companies suing them than random people who might sue. The pharmaceutical companies could claim the videos with negative comments about their vaccines are doing harm to their products.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

On a government database I looked at yesterday regarding mandatory quarantine procedures in place upon border arrival, it clearly stated that being vaxxed doesn't mean one can be exempt from MIQ because it isn't known if the vaxxes yet work and keep one protected.

Its a mixed bag of signals, when governments are pushing the vax for people to be protected from this COVID19 fiasco and then claim the opposite if it suits their agenda.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

They don't need a camera. Nobody is interested in viewing you watching your porn, contentious Rumble videos, or laughing hysterically at Biden's dementia.

They've got you by the balls just from the data they can instruct your ISP to provide to them. And it's all legal because, even though it's about you, it's their data, not yours.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Right thing to do.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

There needs to be a balance of allowing discussions on both sides of this situation, however posting videos stating vaccines are implanting microchips or causing people to become magnetic, need to be pulled. A line needs to be drawn.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

If people are so dense to get their information from MSM and what random idiots post on social media sites, they deserve whatever they get.

The ban on anti-vaccine videos is for all vaccines, not just the Covid vaccines.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Perhaps! Yet people have died because of the projected narrative too.

People will die of many many things, over and above COVID19. The vaxxes are also being treated as a one shoe size fits all and that is what is ignorant, insidious and immoral.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

It's far more likely that they died because of the vaxx not from skipping it. Countries with the highest vaxx rates also have the highest covid rates. Charts and stats with factual information are being labeled misinformation by the MSM, even when they come from the CDC.

Charts and stats with factual information are being labeled misinformation by the MSM, even when they come from the CDC.

That's part of the problem with this ban - a lot of things that aren't misinformation are going to be removed. I don't know how they determine which videos contain misinformation; do random workers at YouTube/Google watch each video and make the decision, or are the videos automatically taken down if certain phrases are used in the videos?

⛔️ YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

…a lot of things that aren’t misinformation are going to be removed.
The main concern is that Big Pharma shall not be impacted. I believe YouTube gets a share of the lucre if they treat them right.

A YouTuber has told me that you can get your message across if the title and description isn't too clear and you bury it far into the video.

If you want to see some real info on alternative treatments, go to https://rumble.com/ before Big Pharma catches up with them.

⛔️ YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

The more it's been discussed in this thread, the more I think the reason they're removing the videos is because they don't want to be sued by the pharmaceutical companies. I'm surprised some people are thinking, "This is great! YouTube (Google) is looking out for us because they care so much!"

⛔️ YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Big Pharma doesn't want to sue anyone who is presenting facts because discovery would hurt them. Here's the latest I've heard from two sources.

A Medicare whistleblower has reported on those dying within 14 days of receiving the vaxx. ¡That's a significant period because they only count those as vaxxed if it has been over 14 days!
Deaths  <80 yrs  19,400
Deaths >=80 yrs 28,000
------
47,400
To be fair the other source reported 47,465 deaths.

They really can't and the irony is, misinformation is being peddled by our mendacious governments and people are swallowing it hook line and sinker.

It's annoying that anything different from the "status quo" is automatically labeled "misinformation," "crazy," "conspiracy theories," etc.

If its not the projected mainstream narrative, its bad!

Most will then dismiss that much of the challenging and conflicting information that doesn't coincide with their inflexible and rigid worldview, comes from highly intelligent professionals/scientists who are specialists in their own fields. Only the nannying state and fear-mongering will satiate them.

"If people are so dense to get their information from MSM and what random idiots post on social media sites, they deserve whatever they get."

They do.
We need to thin our herds anyway and to let natural selection of Darwin Nominees work.

On the other hand if this helps to slow down or even end the pandemic to take away the bogus info, such as not getting vaccinated and eating horse paste instead, I am all for it.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

Its really only a pandemic because it was claimed as one for the agenda. Collated stats and comparisons to any other annual coronavirus does not support this, especially when the recovery rate bears no extreme significance.

The population has not depleted, it has still grown within its usual percentage boundary growth rate since this circus was declared.

The government funded MSM narrative is what has been bogus.

Its been about fear-mongering and justification for establishment relevance right from the start and is about control and power. Govt does not own liberty over a persons own body and health, yet this is what has happened regarding pushing this vax to create a dubious herd immunity.

Its not the same for everyone, it won't suit everyone and its not going to achieve the propagated result desired. However, if we get told that it has, the lemmings will believe this too.

I don't know enough about Ivermectin at this stage to make comment. I heard that it is working in some areas like India and cartel big shill Pharma won't be getting their greedy hands in the honey pot over it so won't push it.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

What is it about this that you do not get?
It is a very highly contagious virus that anyone can get very easily and actually die from which are things that are still going on.

I agree that things may be blown out of proportion, such as the numbers of the living far outweigh the dead which the MSM ignores, and that perhaps there are alternatives that may help, such as being vegan, that also does not get reported on.

You don't seem to think that it is as serious as it really is.

While I can understand questioning authority for most things and being mistrustful, I just don't think this is the place for it.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

What the frick does that even mean? What is there to get?

ALL coronavirus are contagious and infectious, that is the viral nature. It has been like this since the dawn of humankind. This one has been REPORTED on to make it seem worse over and above all else.

It is all about natural selection and CANNOT be controlled. Those that have died, were going to die anyway. Do you jump up and down because of people dying from heart disease, strokes and skin cancers. Where is your phony virtuous projection for them?

This will be the next fear-porn. Lockdowns over going out in the hot sun because hospitals can't cope….

Why wasn't this fuss made over SARS COV1? I'll tell you why, because the social media technology wasn't as pronounced to manipulate and exploit the over-breeding zombie lemming morons.

Hospitals have always been prepared for respiratory illnesses and its no different to dealing with pneumonia patients. Where has the fuss been made over this before?

Hospitals get over-run too because of poor lifestyle choices people make and instead of promoting health, fear gets put in its place. Not to mention increasing world populations and more health care facilities are therefore needed.

The US also has one of the worst health systems in the world that is all about profit before people. Now Big Shill Pharma is reaping in the fiscal rewards again.

Live with a little more insight and courage Warren. Its a f<>king runny nose for over 99.9% of peeps.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

"What the frick does that even mean? What is there to get?"

Meaning that I do not think there is any kind of conspiracy or cover up.
That in this case I mostly trust the info we are getting on how serious it is including the vaccine info.

"ALL coronavirus are contagious and infectious, that is the viral nature. It has been like this since the dawn of humankind. This one has been REPORTED on to make it seem worse over and above all else."

Because it is worse.
AIDS or HIV can only be transmitted through sex and blood transfusions.
STDs only through sex.
You cannot catch cancer from someone else who has it through any contact or if they sneeze or cough on you.
Other sicknesses and diseases in our time, that I know of, have not spread this quick, easily and as widespread around the world.

"This will be the next fear-porn. Lockdowns over going out in the hot sun because hospitals can't cope….

Why wasn't this fuss made over SARS COV1? I'll tell you why, because the social media technology wasn't as pronounced to manipulate and exploit the over-breeding zombie lemming morons."

There is no manipulation going on.
What we see is what we are getting.
SARS was contained.
Covid has yet to be.

"Hospitals have always been prepared for respiratory illnesses and its no different to dealing with pneumonia patients. Where has the fuss been made over this before? "

Because we have not had hospitals filling up as much and as quick with Covid patients.

"The US also has one of the worst health systems in the world that is all about profit before people."

No disagreement with me on that one.

"Now Big Shill Pharma is reaping in the fiscal rewards again."

I didn't have to pay a penny for my vax shots.
Matter of fact they are paying me a $100 gift card which was the incentive for me to get the vax.

You have never had much common sense or insight and often go astray when your inflexible and distorted world view is challenged. You are so easy!

Sure, there have been serious consequences for many, but there ALWAYS have been over coronaviruses and many other things too.

Your claim that SARS COV1 was brought under control and COVID19 hasn't is preposterous. I barely recall any fuss about it, because it WASN'T MARKETED AS HYPE and EXPLOITED.

Re: YouTube banning all anti-vaccine videos

"Your claim that SARS COV1 was brought under control and COVID19 hasn't is preposterous. I barely recall any fuss about it, because it WASN'T MARKETED AS HYPE and EXPLOITED."

With SARS In America, I don't remember places being shut down, hospitals being overwhelmed, doctors and nurses begging for PPP, mask wearing mandates, a vax coming out and EVERYONE being encouraged to take it, social distancing and everything else that has come with Covid.

I am not panicked about Covid. Never really have been. Just frustrated and don't want to risk catching it.

I dunno why you keep on being in denial as if it doesn't exist or take it more seriously.

SARS was contained and still is.

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a rapidly spreading, potentially fatal infectious viral disease.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), SARS was recognized as a global threat in March 2003. The viral disease first appeared in Southern China in November, 2002 and spread to more than 24 countries in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. There have not been any new cases of SARS since 2004, and the risk is relatively low.

Although they were dealing with a newly-discovered virus that behaved differently than other known viruses, world health officials were able to contain the SARS epidemic within a few short months. For another SARS outbreak to emerge, the SARS virus would need to be transmitted from an animal source, a lab accident, or humans who have not been rapidly diagnosed, isolated, and treated. China has reported a few cases of SARS since December 2003. Chinese health care professionals have heightened awareness of symptoms and are prepared to use proper infection control measures to prevent another outbreak.
