(RoyalPatriot.com )- You likely know by now just how biased Big Tech is when it comes to hosting content that supports conservative goals or criticizes left-wing extremists, but whenever we deliver you a new story about censorship we can’t help but be shocked.
YouTube, the biggest video-sharing platform in the world, just reversed course after making the controversial decision to remove a video of a mon calling for mask mandates to be ended in her child’s school district.
Merianne Jensen, a resident of Virginia, published a video on the platform last week of her speaking to the local school board demanding that elected officials stop “playing politics with kids’ faces” and end the mask mandates in schools.
She told school board members on February 2 that healthy children are being forced to stay at home, others are being forced to wear masks, and in some schools, children are being segregated by vaccination status and religious exemption status…despite wearing masks.
“So I ask you, if masks work, why don’t they?” she said.

Her comments drew a round of applause from the other parents in the room.
The video attracted tens of thousands of views before YouTube decided to pull it.
Jimmy Jeffries, another parent from the area, had recorded the comments and shared the video on his YouTube channel – but he soon received a message from YouTube informing him that the video had been removed because it violates the “medical misinformation policy.”
The email from YouTube, however, did not explain what “misinformation” had been shared in the video. Because there was one.
“I don’t have much to say beyond that it’s a real head-scratcher, considering major mainstream publications all over are running articles by serious public health experts saying essentially the same thing Merianne did,” Jeffries told The Daily Signal in an interview this week.
Jeffries soon filed an appeal, after the removal went public, and YouTube curious reversed course and reuploaded the video. When he asked YouTube why it was removed in the first place, he was told:
“When it’s brought to our attention that content has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it.”
Was it really a mistake?
