YouTube to block misleading content alleging voter fraud in US election

YouTube says that it is removing any content alleging widespread voter fraud that could have influenced the outcome of the 2020 US presidential election. In the wake of case after case being thrown out of State courts, and even a ruling from the US Supreme Court, there is yet to be any evidence produced to indicate voter fraud or tampering of ballots.

YouTube had came under fire for allowing posted videos making false claims about the country’s election results. The One America News Network, a verified YouTube channel, published a video declaring that President Trump “won” the election, a claim also made by the incumbent. YouTube responded saying… “Like other companies, we’re allowing these videos because discussion of election results & the process of counting votes is allowed on YouTube.”

But yesterday YouTube said that its decision to begin removing misleading election videos follows the safe harbour deadline, where Sates declare their official results, and that “enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect.”

“YouTube will begin removing any new content that misleads viewers about the outcome of the 2020 election.”

The announcement follows a series of lawsuits placed by the President’s campaign team challenging the results of the presidential election. 2 days ago the Supreme Court rejected a request to block certification of the Pennsylvania election results, blocking any possibility for the President or Republicans to invalidate Joe Biden’s victory in a US court.

YouTube says it has found over 200,000 election-related videos that were shown over 4.5 billion times. The company said that it would update all these posts, linking them instead to the electoral college results provided by the Office of the Federal Register which shows that Joe Biden is the official president-elect.

Other social media companies have also come under criticism for allowing some news channels to post false claims and inaccurate information about the election.

    So we have YouTube who can promote “Rap Against Dictatorship” to 92+ million hits.
    But can not allow addressing of wide spread voter fraud against their preferred candidate.

    AmeriKa is looking worse than a Banana Republic in the 1950’s.

    At this point we are way beyond 1984.

        It’s even worse than you think. 100 billion people have lived and died on this planet. That’s like fighting WW2 over 1600 times!!! And it’ll only get worse…

      The important thing is not to know if there has been fraud or not but to have the right to express doubts.

      I used to live in a Western country where voting machines are banned because of the risk of rigging.
      I used to live in a Western country where there is fraud in every election (people from the same party who lock themselves in a room to strip and forbid others to enter, cattle ballot boxes that are taken away during the night and reported later, dead people who vote) and where there are protests, appeals, trials.
      Sometimes it doesn’t change anything, but sometimes it can go as far as changing the result or even cancelling the election.

      So why wouldn’t this be possible in the USA?

    I don’t like Trump and its aggressive economic policy towards other countries like Thailand (especially on agrochemicals).

    But he is one of the few American presidents who did not start a war and who confronted the globalists.

    He is under attack from the globalists who control the mainstream media, Google and the main social networks.

    These are the same disinformation networks that demonize the Thai government and the monarchy they want to overthrow.

    The same networks of manipulation that make the anti-government leaders in their service look like heroes, fighters for democracy.

    Facebook and Google have unfortunately taken too much power that they no longer hesitate to use to put forward their way of thinking,

    Google puts pro-globalist forward in search results and censors or gives less visibility to those who think differently.

    Facebook does the same and targets user profiles to manipulate them, so many young Thai people admit to having discovered that their country was not a “democracy” (according to the globalists) via Facebook, just as they received incentives to react and demonstrate via its networks.

    They are creating a veritable dictatorship of thought, and people with little culture and who are easily manipulated are easily caught.

    Today, they no longer need an army to conquer countries, they can manipulate the population of a country through these social networks and incite them to overthrow their own government and then put a traitor they have trained and put forward, a puppet at their service, in power to serve their interests at the expense of the population.

    Then the mundialists will only have to create continued chaos and many divisions in the country to prevent the population from turning against them.

    This is what they usually do in the countries under their control.

    And if one of their former “democracy fighters” discovers that they have been tricked and wants to turn against them, and wants to use these same social networks, he will see his messages, once shared to thousands of people directly, censored or with little visibility.

    The Western media, which once presented him as a hero, will laugh at him and make him look like a conspiracy theorist.

    He will then discover the other side of the mirror….

    In the Western world, the objective of the MSM (Main Stream Media) or the main so-called “social” media (GAFAM) is not freedom of expression, but money and power.
    They censor people who disagree with them.

    Recently tens of thousands of accounts have been deleted because they discussed what happened in the US elections, or because they said Remdesivir was inefficient, or because they said Remdesivir was dangerous, or because they said Hydrxychloroquin worked well, or because they criticized the candidate that the social media had financed, or because they said good things about the party that the social media didn’t like etc.

    In the USA, millions of people have left and continue leaving Googliar, FakeBook, Twatter, Raddit, Instagrom because of that. These fake “social” media practice censorship while enjoying the immunity of platform status.
