The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday concerns equal justice for all citizens. The United States has a two-tier justice system. The FBI recently arrested a man for protesting a Planned Parenthood location, while ignoring about a dozen attacks by Ruth’s Revenge at pregnancy centers. This does not show equal justice.
Another sign of inequality is difference in how Democrats claimed that Donald Trump was an “illegitimate president” in 2016, while denying Republicans the right to question the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election. The Democrats have condemned Republicans for the “assault” on the Capitol Building for nearly two years, but they never noticed the riots in the streets after Trump was inaugurated.
Still another piece of evidence of inequality is how the mainstream media all claimed that Trump was an illegitimate president. According to Chris Pandolfo, YouTube recently demonetized a video that highlights Democrat politicians repeatedly claiming that Trump’s presidency was illegitimate.
Journalist Matt Taibbi, writing for his Substack newsletter “TK News,” shared that YouTube said a new video by TK News contributor Matt Orfalea “isn’t suitable for all advertisers” and “as a result, it will continue to run limited or no ads.”
The video shows various news clips, tweets, and headlines in which Democratic Party politicians and media personalities call the Trump presidency illegitimate or question the results of the 2016 presidential election. It features former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, and many other prominent Democrats….
Pandolfo reported that the video is nearly five minutes long and shows Democrats claiming falsely that “Russia ‘hacked’ the election, advancing the evidence-free claim that Russia interfered with voter rolls, threatening to challenge or overturn the election results, and asserting that Trump must have cheated to win.”
YouTube demonetized the video before it was even published, according to Pandolfo. In return, he thanked YouTube “for making our point.” He continued, “The material in this video does not promote the idea that any election was stolen or illegitimate. On the contrary, it shows a great mass of comments from Democratic partisans and pundits who themselves make that claim, about the 2016 election.” None of the comments by the Democrats were censored, but a video with their statements is censored. That is not fair! You can watch the video for yourself at this site.
