‘Does This Mean Snot-Nosed Censors At YouTube Will Come To My Office And Kiss My …?’: Rand Paul Smashes YouTube

By Hank Berrien • Jan 17, 2022

On Saturday, after the release of new guidance on mask-wearing from the Centers for Disease Control, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) fired back at YouTube censors who had suspended him from the website last August after he had warned that cloth masks do not protect against the coronavirus.

Paul tweeted, “Does this mean snot-nosed censors at YouTube will come to my office and kiss my … and admit I was right?”

Paul had released a video last August in which he stated, “Most of the masks you get over the counter don’t work. They don’t prevent infection,” adding, “cloth masks don’t work.”

Speaking to NBC News at the time, a spokesperson for YouTube said that the video violated company policy on Covid-19 misinformation, such as “claims that wearing a mask is dangerous or causes negative physical health effects” or that masks were ineffective in preventing the contraction or transmission of COVID-19.

The spokesperson continued, “We removed content from Senator Paul’s channel for including claims that masks are ineffective in preventing the contraction or transmission of COVID-19, in accordance with our COVID-19 medical misinformation policies.. This resulted in a first strike on the channel, which means it can’t upload content for a week, per our longstanding three strikes policy.

Paul issued a separate post in which he said, “I haven’t lied. I haven’t used expletives. I haven’t spread misinformation. I have only told the truth about what our government seeks to do to us, curtailing our most basic liberties, using the COVID-19 pandemic as their excuse.”

Paul tweeted, “Does this mean snot-nosed censors at YouTube will come to my office and kiss my … and admit I was right?”
