Illiberal YouTube Bans RFK Jr., Others for Vax Skepticism

'Our policies not only cover specific routine immunizations like for measles or Hepatitis B, but also apply to general statements about vaccines...'

YouTube on Wednesday announced an explicit program to ban all accounts and videos that criticize vaccines or warn about their side effects, Just The News reported.

Among those being permanently canceled was Democrat political scion Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the slain former New York senator and attorney general, whose family name was long synonymous with classical American liberalism.

Prominent vaccine skeptic Joseph Mercola, a homeopathic doctor, also was included in the YouTube ban.

The policy purports to censor “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.”

Mercola has described COVID-19 as a common cold, and all scientific data indicates that the disease manifests itself with cold-like symptoms in almost all cases.

Like the common cold, COVID-19 mostly kills elderly people and those with pre-existing medical conditions, such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes and obesity.

He has advised taking natural supplements, like vitamin D and zinc, rather than vaccines to treat COVID-19.

RFK Jr. has alleged that children suffer from numerous medical conditions—including autism, ADHD and immune disorders—due to exposure to toxic chemicals and heavy metals. He believes that vaccines are one source of exposure.

YouTube said the policy will remove accounts that link vaccines to chronic health conditions or mental disorders.

Accounts that discuss the connection between vaccines and increasing government power and surveillance will also be removed.

The policy is not limited to COVID-19.

“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,” YouTube said in its statement on “Managing Harmful Vaccine Content.”

“Our policies not only cover specific routine immunizations like for measles or Hepatitis B, but also apply to general statements about vaccines,” it added.
