Twitter and other Big Tech companies have attempted to censor information about COVID and the vaccine by defining ‘misinformation’ as anything other than the approved message delivered by The Biden Administration, the CDC, and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
A popular podcast host, Joe Rogan, invited Dr. Robert Malone, MD to his show after Twitter banned him from their platform for ‘misinformation.” Malone, an mRNA vaccine expert and one of the individuals on the development team for the vaccine currently in use, was banned on social media for sharing his expert knowledge that challenged Fauci’s opinions.
Dr. Malone appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience as an expert in virology. Malone was banned from Twitter. Rogan promptly joined GETTR and invited his 8 million followers to do the same.
Clips of the interview quickly appeared on social media channels, including YouTube, which blocked the content prohibiting anyone from viewing, sharing, or commenting on the show.
As more Big Tech companies continue to go after ‘misinformation’ inappropriately, more people shift to newer platforms that promote ‘free speech’. With more experts being blocked or banned, more people question the censorship imposed upon the American people.
After YouTube’s ban on Malone, Texas Republican Rep. Troy Nehls expressed his censorship concerns. He uploaded the ‘controversial’ interview to the Congressional Record. “Today, I submitted the transcript from the @joerogan experience podcast episode #1757 with Dr. Robert Malone to the Congressional Record,” Nehls tweeted.
He added, “Big tech wants to restrict your access to this information-but they cannot censor the Congressional Record.”
Just in case the video is somehow lost, Nehls also added the full transcript to his congressional website for anyone to read.“By deplatforming Dr. Robert Malone for voicing opposition and removing the interview, Twitter and YouTube are once again proving that they don’t work for their users but for big Pharma, big media, and the elites,” stated Nehls.
“When we stray away from our core principles of freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of debate, democracy is lost. Today, I entered the transcript of the Joe Rogan Experience #1757 into the Congressional Record to preserve the podcast forever. Big Tech may be able to censor information on their own platforms, but they cannot censor the Congressional Record,” he concluded.
