In what is an unusual move, YouTube censors responded to criticism over why they took down a video by Dr. Knut Wittkowski on the need for herd immunity in dealing with the coronavirus.
For YouTube censors to do this, they must be feeling the heat.
For the virus to be brought under control, Wittkowski believes the majority of the people need to contract the virus and develop a ‘herd immunity,’ and because of that, he believes governments should end the lockdowns.
Studies have shown that 80% of the people who get the virus have minimal or no symptoms. With nearly 50% having no symptoms, this means they don’t even know they are sick. The ones most vulnerable to the disease are the elderly and those with underlying health issues.
This, of course, is contrary to the message of the mainstream media that supports the lockdown and destruction of the economy.
The YouTube censors removed Wittkowski’s video, that had 1.3 million views, because it provided “misinformation.” When the Daily Caller asked why the video was removed, YouTube responded:
“We quickly remove flagged content that violates our Community Guidelines, including content that explicitly disputes the efficacy of global or local health authority recommended guidance on social distancing that may lead others to act against that guidance. We are committed to continue providing timely and helpful information at this critical time.”
Apparently, YouTube censors know more about how to fight the coronavirus than Dr. Wittkowski, who according to the Daily Caller, was the “former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University.”
It is obvious to anyone who reads Wittkowski’s resume that he knows nothing about combating viruses and Rockefeller University must be a fly-by-night operation compared to “local health authorities”.
Of course, this wasn’t the first time that the YouTube censors yanked videos by medical professionals. They also blacklisted a video by two California doctors, Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, who called for an end of the lockdown comparing the coronavirus to the flu.
Their video had over five million views before the censors ordered it pulled down. What do they know, the duo have only administered over 5,200 COVID tests in that state? READ: Frontline doctors who administered 5,000 coronavirus tests want to reopen, say COVID-19 similar to flu
Which begs the question, what medical degrees and experience do the YouTube censors have to justify these decisions?
