A March 2016 interview with James Tracy conducted on the popular alternative news outlet SGT Report was stricken from YouTube last week, presumably in the wake of the major video platform’s most recent campaign to rid itself of “hate speech.”
According to YouTube’s new policy, “hate speech” now effectively includes virtually any discussion or insinuation calling into question the veracity of complex public events, including mass casualty events.
“Hate speech is not allowed on YouTube,” the exhibition giant declared on June 5th. “We remove content promoting violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on any of the following attributes,” which now includes,
“Victims of a major violent event and their kin.”
Yet as SGT Report‘s host Sean points out in a recent commentary addressing the censorship, the 2016 interview wasn’t even about the Sandy Hook shooting event. Rather, the discussion centered on the anti-free speech actions taken by Tracy’s former academic employer, Florida Atlantic University, in retaliation against Tracy for his controversial online speech.
As Sean notes, “We merely discussed the First Amendment and the high cost of free speech as it pertains to discussing, investigating, and/or questioning any event at all. “Evidently now,” he adds,
if you don’t fall in line with the mainstream media version of events and parrot the official story, you will be targeted as an unhinged conspiracy theorist who spews hate speech.
In April 2016 Tracy filed a federal civil rights suit against Florida Atlantic and its chief administrators who carried out his firing. That suit is now before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
YouTube’s censorship of the interview is in lockstep with the overall news blackout of TracyvFAU by national media, the same media that focused so intently on Tracy’s personal blogging in 2013, then celebrated the academic’s termination three years later.
The US Congress and numerous state legislatures are in the process of making laws to institute “mandatory vaccination” on both children and adults. At the same time state governments are rolling back protections guaranteeing informed consent, a cornerstone of modern medicine.
Such measures are especially concerning because many vaccines have been found to be unsafe if not deadly, particularly for children. Because since pharmaceutical companies are immune from liability, they have little incentive to ensure vaccines are uniformly safe.
Those of who are in their mid-40s or older recall that measles was once a “right of passage” in childhood: After one suffered through the malady for a few days Mother Nature imparted us with lifelong immunity–minus the health hazard and threat of permanent injury vaccine products pose. Chicken pox, another common yet non-life threatening condition often experienced while young, was often mentioned in the same breath as measles.
This author recalls a time when as a grade-schooler he spent weekdays after school with a family in the neighborhood, as both parents worked. Two of their five children were about my age, and we all attended the same parochial school. One spring the entire family contracted the measles. It was no big deal. My grandparents provided childcare for a week or two, and thereafter I returned to the normal late afternoon routine with the family. There was no fear their household harbored some dreadful contagion, because in the early 1970s health authorities and mass media were not erroneously promoting measles as a grave threat to public health that only vaccines can address.
The video below depicts how measles was reflected along these lines in popular culture.
Over the past several years, however, corporate-controlled news media and ostensibly governmental regulatory agencies doing Big Pharma’s bidding are deceptively making “measles outbreaks” the equivalent of the new Black Plague, while at the same time decrying as “fake news” those who so much as question vaccine safety and point to informed consent.
As the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons has recently argued in a statement to Congress,
Measles is the much-publicized threat used to push for mandates, and is probably the worst threat among the vaccine-preventable illnesses because it is so highly contagious. There are occasional outbreaks, generally starting with an infected individual coming from somewhere outside the U.S. The majority, but by no means all the people who catch the measles have not been vaccinated. Almost all make a full recovery, with robust, life-long immunity.
If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.
In a similar vein, the freedom to exercise discretion and informed consent over the treatments and substances introduced into one’s very body is the essence of personal freedom, and indeed perhaps “The last stand on earth.”
A CSPAN video from 2017 that surfaced in early October depicts Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi explaining how to defame someone via the “wrap up smear.”
“You smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest, and then you merchandise it.”
“The difference,” Pelosi continues, “is we don’t engage in the politics of personal destruction.” While she suggests this is a Republican Party tactic, her own party is the most prolific source of late in the “wrap up smear’s” deployment.
This manipulation of public opinion toward a specific object is accomplished in de facto coordination with a news media that simply don’t check the facts or circumstances surrounding allegations.
