Rep. Issa Speech Banned from YouTube

Censorship is rearing its ugly head again.

This time for no reason other than a Republican said the words.

Rep. Issa (R-CA) is now going ballistic over the fact that YouTube removed a recent speech, even though nothing was misleading or inflammatory in anything he said.

Because We Feel Like It

Issa appeared at the EDGE2021 conference in Las Vegas when his “controversial” comments were made.

In defending his speech, Issa stated, “The speech was about data and was a very nonpartisan speech… I used the analogy that just like the original Sputnik, when the Russians were first and we were better, they came out with their vaccine first but ours was better.”

He continued, “They don’t take down the AP, they don’t take down the NYT, but they will take down Darrell Issa for a completely benign statement that our product was better.”

This, by the way, was not some conservative group to which he was speaking, but a long-recognized and respected government technology conference.

Issa also tweeted about the censorship…

The congressman continued, “The fact that they’re sort of calling me a vaccine-denier when I’m talking about our product being better than a product from a country that didn’t have third-party review is a pretty amazing level of scrutiny, and I think it shows just how much they’re making decisions based on who says something, not what they say.”

Google, which owns YouTube, has yet to return calls to clarify the removal of the video.
