UPDATE: Heritage President Blasts Big Tech After YouTube Censorship

UPDATE: YouTube was contacted by MRC Free Speech America for comments on the censorship of Heritage. YouTube issued the following statement

“We took content off and issued an order of strike to The Heritage Foundation channel. They were violating our election integrity policies, which forbids material that claims widespread fraud altered the outcome in the 2020 U.S. presidential elections. This channel has been temporarily suspended from the publication of new videos and livestreams. We apply our policies to all and enforce them consistently regardless of who the speaker is.


Big Tech was in for a rude awakening by the Heritage Foundation president.

Kevin Roberts, the president of the Heritage Foundation, alleged that YouTube removed a video of former President Donald Trump’s speech at a Heritage event last month.

“America is facing dark times and tremendous plight due to the radical shift away from America First,” Trump said in his speech. “However, America’s greatness is not lost if we act with purpose. We can and must turn this around to Save America.”

Roberts slammed the reported removal and called Big Tech “an enemy of the people.”

“Unbelievable: @YouTubeYou are just being informed @Heritage that it has taken down the video of former President Trump’s speech at our event in Florida last month,” Roberts tweeted with a screenshot of what appeared to be a warning from YouTube that the video violated the platform’s Terms of Service.The platform did not appear to state which terms the video violates.

“Big Tech is an enemy of the people, and needs to be held accountable with policies that hit them where it hurts,” Roberts added.


Roberts stated the video was watched over half a million times before it was removed. He also suggested that Tesla CEO Elon Musk buy YouTube.

“We posted the 82-minute video on April 21 and it had more than 530,000 views,” he said. “But YouTube’s censorship council, in all its wisdom, decided that several seconds of Trump’s remarks warranted banning us from the platform for a week. Maybe @elonmusk should buy them, too.”

He encouraged people to see the full video on Rumble. Rumble is a video streaming option to YouTube.

“To watch Trump’s speech for yourself, go check out the video on @rumblevideo, where they actually embrace free speech,” he tweeted.

NewsBusters reported earlier this year that YouTube removed a video of a Trump speech earlier in the year for so-called election “misinformation.”

YouTube allegedly stated the video contained “content that advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches changed the outcome of the U.S. 2020 presidential election.” 

Over 5,000,000 people viewed the video in just 24 hours. Trump compared the deletion to the Russian state media’s censorship of news about the country’s invasion of Ukraine. 

Trump stated that Russia’s actions are similar to Russia’s. He was referring to the reported expulsion. 

“I told [the NELK boys]He said, “Don’t be afraid, it’ll be taken down because I’m doing so.”
