(John Ransom, Headline USA) Google-owned YouTube went out of its way to prove former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s point—that Big Tech is in the pocket of the leftist Establishment—by slapping a warning label on a Fox News interview in which she called out politicians who want to censor opposition views.
In the interview with Fox’s Laura Ingraham, the red-pilled Gabbard—a lieutenant colonel in the US Army Reserves who served with the psychological warfare outfit—accused fellow Democrats of being part of Washington, DC’s war machine, the Washington Times reported.
“People like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, they [use] all this flowery language about how we’ve gotta take a stand and pay the price,” Gabbard said. “The American people need to pay so much more for gas, so much more for food, make these decisions between filling their gas tank and buying groceries because—freedom?”
A label on the YouTube video now says that “the following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”
This also empowers Google, theoretically, to track who accesses it—or to selectively prevent flagged users from accessing it altogether.
Following Gabbard’s failed bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, the former Hawaii congresswoman has increasingly sought to ingratiate herself with Republicans, even speaking at the annual CPAC convention in February.
More recently, she and RINO Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, have been involved in a fight, mostly on Twitter, about allegations that the US may have sponsored bioweapons research facilities in Ukraine, similar to China’s Wuhan Institite of Virology.
