YouTube snatches Jordan Peterson’s interview with RFK Jr. and claims that it violates their vaccination policy
YouTube snatches Jordan Peterson’s interview with Democrat RFK Jr. off, where presidential hopefuls said chemicals in water make children transgender and claim it violates their vaccination policies
- On Monday, YouTube removed an interview between Jordan Peterson and presidential candidate RFK Jr.
- The Google-owned platform said the video violates its general vaccine misinformation policy
- The interview, in which Kennedy claims that chemicals in the water lead to “sexual dysphoria” in American children, remains available on Twitter
YouTube removed an interview by Jordan Peterson with 2024 Democratic presidential nominee Robert F. Kennedy Jr., claiming it violated guidelines against sharing misinformation about vaccines.
The Google-owned company said Monday: “We have removed a video from the Jordan Peterson channel for violating YouTube’s global vaccine misinformation policy, which bans content claiming that vaccines cause chronic side effects, apart from rare side effects recognized by health authorities. ‘
Kennedy, who launched his presidential campaign in April, criticized YouTube for removing the video, which was posted earlier this month.
During the interview with Peterson, Kennedy claimed that it is the chemicals in the water that make children transgender.
Robert F Kennedy Jr. said he was being censored and argued there is no misinformation in a video YouTube removed, citing vaccine misinformation policy
On Twitter, Kennedy wrote, “What do you think… Should social media platforms censor presidential candidates?”
“My conversation with @JordanBPeterson has been removed by @YouTube. Luckily, you can check it out here on Twitter (thanks Elon Musk).
Peterson also responded, accusing YouTube of “taking it upon itself to actively interfere in a presidential election campaign.”
According to the Vaccine Misinformation Policy, YouTube prohibits content that “poses a serious risk of serious harm by spreading medical misinformation about currently administered vaccines that have been approved and confirmed to be safe and effective by local health authorities and by the World Health Organization (WHO). .’
The platform stated that the guidelines apply to all content and creators on the platform, regardless of their politics.
Earlier this month, Kennedy’s Instagram was reinstated after being banned for posting “debunked claims about the coronavirus or vaccines.”
Kennedy’s campaign told Fox News that although “vaccines are not a key priority for Mr. Kennedy in this campaign, he will be happy to discuss this issue with any prominent proponent of the conventional view.”
‘Mr. Kennedy does not believe the attacks were coordinated. People just speak out according to what they believe. These beliefs are the result of the long-standing influence of corporate funds in medicine, research, media and government.”
Yet there is disturbing evidence in published research of serious safety issues with vaccines in general, but especially with the Covid jabs. The real problem for Mr. Kennedy is regulation and corporate influence over government. He supports well-conducted, unbiased, transparent safety testing of all vaccines,” the campaign statement concluded.
Jordan Peterson, a psychologist and conservative commentator, said YouTube chose to interfere in the 2024 election
In the interview with Peterson, Kennedy claimed that it is the chemicals in the water that make children transgender.
The son of former Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy said “much of the sexual dysphoria” America sees stems from exposure to chemicals in the water.
“I think a lot of the problems we see in kids, especially boys, are probably underestimated because a lot of that is a result of chemical exposure, including a lot of the sexual dysphoria that we see,” he said.
“I mean, they’re swimming through a soup of toxic chemicals these days, and a lot of them are endocrine disruptors. There’s atrazine in our water supply.’
RFK Jr. has been in the news in recent days, mainly because of his views on vaccines. He has long been critical of them, saying they cause autism. The 2024 hopeful recently appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast, where he questioned vaccines.
That brought Dr. Peter Hotez to criticize the interview on social media. Rogan then challenged the doctor to go on his podcast about RFK Jr. to debate.
The challenge sparked backlash, from both sides of the debate, on social media.
