Because it became so popular so quickly, Plandemic became a quick target for Facebook and YouTube, which on May 7 announced that they had removed the film for making "medically unsubstantiated" claims about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The film also features clips of Mikovits, who is known for her position that most vaccines are dangerous.
Mikovits is a whistleblower who used to work for the National Cancer Institute. Much of her research centers around studying retroviruses like HIV, which French virologist and Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier has said contains similar DNA to that of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
She does not agree with mask wearing, citing its dangers; she does not support the shutdown orders that have been implemented across the United States; and she thinks that people should be allowed to continue congregating if they so choose. And because of all this, Mikovits is not allowed to have a voice on social media.
In Plandemic, Mikovits claims that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is a conspiracy hatched by interests which stand to profit from the development of a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. She also expresses concerns about vaccines in general, warning about the unintended consequences they can have on innocent lives.
YouTube, working in tandem with Facebook, has been feverishly pulling all copies of Plandemic from every channel it can find, and this writer can confirm that the same thing is happening on Vimeo. In order to avoid the censors, however, some channels are uploading slightly edited versions of the film.
Twitter is likewise blocking the hashtags #Plandemicmovie and #PlagueOfCorruption because they contain "misinformation," according to the Jack Dorsey empire. Twitter is not, however, removing shorter clips of the film.
The full Plandemic film has been posted by "Jesus Social Network" on Brighteon.com, a free speech video network that remains one of the very few places where users can find the documentary:
The Big Tech censorship agenda has really kicked into high gear ever since the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) began spreading in the United States and other Western nations. And a big reason for this is the World Health Organization (WHO), which has reportedly been pressuring the tech giants to censor "harmful content" and "misinformation" about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
It would seem as though there is only one narrative allowed concerning this pandemic, and that narrative portends that the virus is so bad that everyone's freedoms need to be taken away, including the right not to vaccinate, as part of the "new normal."
This is yet another powerful reminder as to why all tech companies need to have their Communications Decency Act (CDA) "Safe Harbor" protections immediately removed. If they are going to act as content publishers rather than content providers, then they no longer qualify for immunity from censorship charges.
"There will need to be significant reforms of policies such as Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in order to keep social media titans from completely shutting out dissident voices," writes Jose Nino for Big League Politics.
