Censored by YouTube…

Written by David E. Smith

The overlords at Google/YouTube have banned the IFA video of our U.S. Senatorial Forum. Why? Because the topic of widely suspected voting irregularities during the 2020 election was briefly touched on during the forum. That is a “conspiracy theory” Leftists will not tolerate despite the mounting evidence. So, what conspiracy theories do they tolerate?  Well, if you search the following topics, you will find a plethora of videos available:

  • Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory
  • Jussie Smollett attacked by racist, homophobic Trump supporters conspiracy theory
  • Who shot JFK conspiracy theory
  • Moon landing hoax conspiracy theory
  • Area 51 conspiracy theory
  • Sasquatch conspiracy theory
  • Loch Ness Monster conspiracy theory
  • Elvis still lives conspiracy theory

Thankfully, last year we decided to cross-post our videos over at our Rumble channel in case intolerant regressives blocked us, but who knew it would be over a video of a candidate forum? Do they realize that despite their persistent attempts to control all narratives in the public square, demand conformity, and impose assimilation, the pursuit of truth will continue? At least one third of Americans will defy attempts to quash open dialogue and a hearty examination of the topic.

The fact that prominent political pundits on the center-right are pursing the question should be illuminating. The Federalist‘s Molly Hemmingway recently released a book titled “Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections“;  National Review‘s John Fund also released a book last year titled, “Our Broken Elections: How the Left Changed the Way You Vote.” Dinesh D’Souza has an upcoming documentary, dubbed 2,000 Mules, in which he documents alleged ballot-stuffing in the 2020 election.

The harder Leftists work to suppress opposing viewpoints, the more it makes Americans suspicious and yearn for the truth. What are Leftists afraid of? If Leftist ideas, theories, and perspectives are better than conservative views, why not allow them to compete openly and freely to win the day in the public square?

Leftists claim to be champions of free speech. They proudly advocate for “diversity,” “tolerance,” and “inclusion.” But when it comes to conservative expression of traditional values and/or free social media platforms, Leftists’ track-record demonstrates that they are hypocrites of the highest order. We know all too well how quick they are to stifle or ban the expression of ideas by deeming them “misinformation,” “disinformation,” “fake,” “hateful,” or merely “incorrect.”

Most online searches are conducted through Google or YouTube. As of January 2022, Google sites were ranked first amongst the most visited multi-platform web properties in the United States with just over 270 million U.S. unique visitors and a market share of 61.4 percent among the leading U.S. search engine providers.

Google/YouTube is clearly manipulating and silencing conservative voices while at the same time advancing Leftist voices. In this digital age, politically biased companies with enormous power and influence must not be the only online gatekeepers of political discourse. That is why IFI is grateful for Rumble. We are also glad that Elon Musk plans to unshackle Twitter users who have fallen victim to the machinations of censors who self-identify as “fact checkers.” We need other conservative alternatives so that we can circumvent Leftist bigotry and intolerance. Truth Social, MeWe, Gab, Parler, and GETTR and some new alternative social media platforms.

In the meantime, conservatives must persevere and work twice or three times as hard to uphold and/or promote our ideas, values and opinions. Yes, Big Tech is working against us. They join their ideological allies in the media, academia, Hollywood and the ever leftward sliding Democratic Party working against Western culture, which is based on Judeo-Christian values.

Many believe, as does IFI, that the cultural revolution we are experiencing in the United States is essentially a battle between those values and the godless left, who not only reject the God of the Bible, but openly shake their collective fists at Him. They cannot abide the claim that God defines our moral standards (i.e., the sanctity of life, the institution of marriage, the immutability of male and female), and that our unalienable rights are derived from our Creator.

The Truth Project creator Dr. Del Tackett identifies this as “The Cosmic Battle.” It is a battle between truth and lies, and this battle has been raging since the dawn of time. Every man and woman now stands in the position of having to choose between God’s truth claims and the opposing perspectives of the world, the flesh, and the devil. The Apostle Paul was very clear about this battle, and even warns us in Ephesians 6 to “take up the whole armor of God” so that we may “be able to withstand” the onslaught coming our way.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities,
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,
against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
~Ephesians 6:12

Knowing these things should only strengthen our resolve to stand firm for the truth. For Christians, this is the only way, because when we stand firm for the truth, we honor the Author of Truth. In doing this, may our faithful example exalt the One who is the Way, the Truth and the Light of the world. (John 8:12) There is “no other Name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” from the lies and consequences of sin. (Acts 4:12)
