GOP Senate hopeful accuses YouTube of CENSORING his anti-filibuster livestream

A New Hampshire Senate hopeful claims YouTube censored his 33-hour livestream where he opposed Biden-backed attempts to end the filibuster, saying big tech is shutting down GOP voices.

Bruce Fenton, a Republican, spent more than a day delivering speeches and addressing voters on Monday at his ‘Filibuster to Save the Filibuster’ event, where he sought to top the filibuster record US Senator Strom Thurmond’s systematic over nine hours.

Fenton said he was proud of his achievement, but that turned to anguish when he discovered that his stream’s video archive had been deleted on YouTube, with the contestant calling the move an attack on freedom of speech. ‘expression.

“There were some great moments in this video, and voters were deprived of them because some woke YouTube executive decided he didn’t like my ideas,” Fenton told DailyMail.com.

“Let’s be honest, if AOC had done what I did, it would still be in place,” he added.

YouTube did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

The platform does not archive live streams longer than 12 hours, although YouTube has yet to say if this is the case for Fenton’s video.

Fenton said YouTube did not reach out to him to properly explain why his live stream was removed or whether the length of the stream was the only factor involved in the decision.

During his livestream, Fenton said there were times he was critical of mask mandates and President Joe Biden’s top COVID adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Much of the stream also focused on support for the filibuster, which Biden and Democrats have pushed to try to end.

Fenton suspects it may have been his criticism of the issues that caused his video to be taken down, saying the tech giants are scrutinizing Republicans and those who oppose the current ruling party.

“Big tech picks and chooses which side they want to be on and which voices can be on their platforms to reach people,” Fenton said.

“They decide what information voters should have and they shouldn’t have the ability to censor that information.

“We need to be able to express ourselves, and our ability to speak is under threat.”

Fenton, who says he made the livestream to connect directly with voters and honor the filibuster, suggested the video was taken down due to his criticism of COVID mandates.

This isn’t the first time Republicans have claimed big tech censors them, with criticism erupting last year after former President Donald Trump was banned from Twitter following the Capitol riot in January 6.

GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green has also been permanently suspended from Twitter for spreading misinformation about COVID-19.

Those temporarily suspended from social media platforms were all Republicans, according to Ballotincluding U.S. Senators Rand Paul and Ron Johnson, Congressman Jim Banks and Barry Moore, and Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain.

In April, the Media Research Center (MRC), through its CensorTrack database, found that content critical of Biden on Twitter and Facebook had been censored 646 times over the past two years.

The largest category of banned messages related to Biden’s reputation for inappropriate contact, CensorTrack said. Biden was forced to address this during his campaign.

In one example cited by the organization, a user told CensorTrack that Facebook deleted one of his posts that showed Biden kissing someone — apparently his granddaughter — on the lips.

A caption with the image read, “Find someone who hugs you like Joe Biden hugs his granddaughter.” Screenshots sent by the user suggested that Facebook claimed the post had violated its community guidelines on “nudity or sexual activity”.

Meanwhile, more than a quarter of the 646 actions taken against users were related to the Hunter Biden laptop story, busted by the New York Post, which involved a cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 e- emails, over 2,000 photos and dozens of videos that have been authenticated by experts retained by DailyMail.com.

When the New York Post reported on the revelations, Twitter went so far as to lock the newspaper’s account for 17 days and placed a “warning label” on the House GOP Judiciary Committee website after linking the story.
