YouTube Changes Policy, Bans Mercola Within Hours
September 29, 2021, YouTube banned and deleted our channel, and the channels of several others, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr., for violating its community guidelines. This despite the fact that much of our content has been up for over a decade and never had any complaints from YouTube.
As you will see below, this is a blatant example of how government, technocratically-led nongovernmental organizations, social media platforms and media collude and coordinate attacks to censor people and organizations with whom they do not agree, or who pose a threat to their highly effective propaganda narrative.
YouTube’s New Policy
Earlier that day, September 29, YouTube updated its community guidelines with an expansion of its already existing policy on medical misinformation. Whereas before the policy had focused on alleged misinformation relating specifically to the COVID shots, the expanded policy now includes ALL vaccines.
In a nutshell, as of September 29, 2021, you cannot post any video discussing or stating that ANY vaccine is dangerous or ineffective. As stated in the updated policy:1
“We’ve steadily seen false claims about the coronavirus vaccines spill over into misinformation about vaccines in general, and we’re now at a point where it’s more important than ever to expand the work we started with COVID-19 to other vaccines.
Specifically, content that falsely alleges that approved vaccines are dangerous and cause chronic health effects, claims that vaccines do not reduce transmission or contraction of disease, or contains misinformation on the substances contained in vaccines will be removed.
This would include content that falsely says that approved vaccines cause autism, cancer or infertility, or that substances in vaccines can track those who receive them. Our policies not only cover specific routine immunizations like for measles or Hepatitis B, but also apply to general statements about vaccines.”
YouTube does grant some exceptions to its new censorship rules, which in now-classic Orwellian double-speak are granted in the spirit of keeping “public discussion and debate to the scientific process” alive.
Vaccine content that will remain allowable includes discussions about “vaccine policies, new vaccine trials, and historical vaccine successes or failures,” as well as personal testimonials relating to vaccines — as long as the channel “doesn’t show a pattern of promoting vaccine hesitancy.”
YouTube Changes Policy and Immediately Deletes My Channel
While the update notice states it’ll take some time to fully ramp up enforcement of these new guidelines, YouTube clearly had their sights set on booting certain individuals right from the start. They viewed me as such a major threat that they had to create new rules to “legitimately” censor me because they could not do it with their existing rules, which I never violated.
That same day, within hours of announcing the new rules, YouTube banned our channel and deleted all our videos without warning.
It’s a devious move, really. Just change the rules to match the (previously compliant) content of the individuals you want to remove, and provide users no time to remain in compliance by removing content that might be in violation.
Going forward, being compliant is not enough — you must be predictively compliant and ensure your videos don’t violate some future policy that may be dreamt up in a moment without notice. What happened next clearly demonstrates coordinated collusion between a number of players.
For starters, YouTube admits the new policy was developed after consulting with local and international health organizations. That most likely includes the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. I wouldn’t be surprised if one or more of Bill Gates’ vaccine-focuse
