TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): The company that rigged the election by suppressing legitimate information in order to influence the outcome of the election more effectively than any foreign government could ever do is now telling us to preserve our faith in the election, they need to censor us more. So how exactly are election-related videos causing harm? Well, YouTube doesn't explain that. They would cause harm to YouTube's reputation and Google's reputation, much deserved. We need to break this company up like immediately.

But YouTube does go on to boast that its censorship campaign has already been underway for quote some time, quote: “Since September, we've terminated over 8,000 channels and thousands of harmful and misleading election videos for violating our existing policies." They use the word terminated, by the way. That's not creepy or anything. Continuing the quote: “Over 77% of those removed videos were taken down before they had 100 views." What in the world is going on here? Ask rational questions and you reach a dead end because there are no rational answers. This is just flat out totalitarian control over the population.
