In the most egregious demonstration yet of outright tyranny and oppression of free speech, YouTube terminated the entire Health Ranger channel (“TheHealthRanger”) without explanation over a week ago. Since then, the internet has expressed increasing outrage toward YouTube for blatant censorship of a channel with over 350,000 subscribers, 1700+ videos and over a decade of video content covering natural medicine, home gardening, laboratory science and liberty podcasts.
The blatant censorship purge being carried out by tech gatekeepers like Google, YouTube and Facebook can only be called “techno-fascism,” and it’s rooted in radical left-wing ideology that has disturbingly morphed into an intolerance cult of totalitarian nut jobs. These people believe that censoring all political opponents is a “victory” for their twisted ideology, and they have now weaponized their power to censor into a campaign of oppression that’s so dangerous, even the creator of the World Wide Web is now calling for the tech giants to be urgently regulated to protect free speech.
“What was once a rich selection of blogs and websites has been compressed under the powerful weight of a few dominant platforms,” warned Tim Berners-Lee in this Web Foundation post. “This concentration of power creates a new set of gatekeepers, allowing a handful of platforms to control which ideas and opinions are seen and shared.”
“What’s more, the fact that power is concentrated among so few companies has made it possible to weaponise the web at scale,” Lee added. He’s referring to the tendency for concentrated power to be exploited and abused by those who wield it. Today, Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter pose a very real danger to democracy and freedom, and they are selectively targeting independent media voices for termination or suppression.

Today, my legal team has issued a demand letter to YouTube, seeking justification for why the channel was banned and demanding the channel be restored. When YouTube terminates your channel and memory holes all your videos, they provide no evidence whatsoever to justify their decision. They don’t name a video that was in violation, and they have no process for appealing the decision or defending yourself against false accusations.
YouTube’s censorship process is the very definition of techno-tyranny: You’re deemed guilty merely by being accused, even without a shred of actual evidence against you. That’s why we’ve demanded that YouTube present evidence of a violation of their community guidelines. Because, truth be told, no such evidence exists. YouTube faked the “violations” accusation in order to terminate my video channel for political reasons alone.
This is exactly what Google did over a year ago to blacklist the NaturalNews.com domain from the Google index for six days. They fabricated a completely fake technical reason, then deleted the entire Natural News website. Six days later, the site was turned back on, without explanation. Never in this entire process did Google provide a single shred of evidence of any technical violation having occurred. In fact, thousands of webmasters reviewed the Natural News website during that dust-up, and there wasn’t a single webmaster who could locate any technical violation that would have justified Google’s blatant censorship of the NaturalNews.com domain.
