It’s almost as if the Big Tech companies are trying to prove that Donald Trump is correct when he says in his class-action lawsuit that they are censoring him.
“YouTube deleted a video of former President Donald Trump from the American Conservative Union’s account and prevented the group from live-streaming the former president’s Sunday CPAC speech,” according to The Washington Times.
“In a statement, ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp said the group learned that its account had been frozen for seven days over a video from Friday in which Mr. Trump announces his class-action lawsuit against the Silicon Valley titans such as Google and YouTube. [emphasis added]
“That loss of access to its video account meant the ACU, which runs the Conservative Political Action Conference, could not upload Mr. Trump’s speech or any other live content from its CPAC 2021 Part 2 in Dallas over the weekend.
“‘It is clear that YouTube censored CPAC because we stood with former President Donald Trump on his lawsuit against Big Tech,” Mr. Schlapp said. “This is yet another example of Big Tech censoring content with which they disagree in order to promote the political positions they favor.” [emphasis added]
