YouTube Censors Viral Video Of California Doctors Criticizing “Stay-At-Home” Order

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

YouTube has censored a viral video in which two doctors criticized the logic of whether California’s stay-at-home coronavirus order is necessary.

The video, which had racked up over 5 million views, featured Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi, co-owners of Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield, Calif.

In the clip, Erickson asserts that there is only a “0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California,” prompting him to ask:

“Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work?”

Erickson also asked why fatalities were being counted as COVID-19 deaths when other ailments were actually more to blame.

“When someone dies in this country right now, they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They’re saying ‘Did they die from COVID?’” Erickson said.

“We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. ER doctors now [say] ‘It’s interesting when I’m writing about my death report, I’m being pressured to add COVID. Why is that?”

The video was deleted late last night for “violating YouTube’s terms of service.”

Earlier this month, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki told CNN that the company would ban any video content that contradicted World Health Organization recommendations.

However, Wojcicki suggested that this would mainly be focused on banning information about fake cures, not questioning of government policy.

The video platform has also set about banning any content that claims 5G cell towers are linked to the coronavirus outbreak.

During an appearance on Fox News last night, Dr. Erickson pointed to Sweden, which didn’t impose any drastic lockdown measures, but now has achieved herd immunity against coronavirus.

“And if you look at their numbers: 200 deaths per million compared to ours, [which is] about the same. Italy’s [is] about 400 per million and Spain is about 400 per million, so we are looking at this going, ‘OK, they took a completely different approach and their results are basically the same,’” said Erickson.

Another version of the original video that YouTube deleted appears below.

  1. Democommunists do NOT want this country back going again and the economy back up’
    They are trying their damnedest to keep everyone “under control” as they attempt Unconstitutional POWER-GRAB after POWER grab to turn the citizens into “subjects of the crown” and continue to use, abuse or “eliminate” if they refuse to obey the “royal decrees” of their “rulers”

      1. I want to unite us as Americans but I want those responsible for dividing us jailed and most of the people responsible happen to be leftests who want to create an Orwellian nightmare for the world! I don’t know if you are a shill or just don’t know what’s going on but I really don’t care either way.

  2. You, the leaders of you tube are blind to the truth produced by these two dedicated physicians, who had all the data revealed; and you believe the WHO which debunked all the information about the covid 19; this left leaning group just lost their U.S. monies. To bad you are engulfed in the communist sector of the government wanting to control the public and not allowing the truth about this useless PANDEMIC to be broadcast! This virus was created at the viral lab in China because of Obama and Dr. Fauci granting 3.7 million dollars against the federal law prohibiting the giving monies to foreign labs! Dr. Fauci was on video stating that the next president after Obama would see numerous viruses plus one which would be devastating to the health and economy of the world! I am sure of these facts, but because you are left leaning, you would not want the truth to be exposed!

    1. “YouTube’s CEO says it’s “more important than ever” that YouTube remains open to anyone”. I take it YOUTUBE is no longer interested in all points of view, contrasting points of view, alternative points of view? YOUTUBE is saying to two doctors in good standing “We will not let your professional perspective be proliferated on our platform no matter how substantial the scientific evidences are!” Think about it! You are bucking the principles on which YOUTUBE was founded.

  3. Why doesn’t someone create an app that encourages free speech rather than stifles it. Come on techies start working on one That would rival YouTube! It is time for the US government to regulate Facebook, YouTube and their ilk against censorship.

  4. I am generally NOT in favor of intrusive and unneeded government regulation. I believe in laissez – faire approach to government… less is better. However, we have reached the point that google, facebook, utube and twitter need to be forced to recognize and strictly adhere the the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution. FREEDOM OF SPEACH!!!!!! To claim that they are private enterprises and not subject to free speech ignores their power and their quasi-public utility role in our society. I am sure that the overpaid members of congress can come up with some sore or oversight/regulatory control of there out of touch liberal dominated groups who obviously have an agenda.

    1. Freedom of speech has limits. I recommend you read Oliver W. Holmes comments as well as Glendon’s book, “Rights Talk”. I look forward to reading your posts after you’re educated.

  5. I am totally in agreement with those physicians and Dr. Ioannidis. I am trying to get my colleagues here to see the same point in our state. People are not getting the picture that we are doing none of these precautions for influenza which has a similar death rate Despite currently having rapid testing, a vaccine which some people refuse to get, and medication (Tamiflu) which is fairly effective. The media needs to be censured for deliberately creating a panic situation where people with treatable conditions are staying home and dying from those diseases because they are either afraid of contracting COVID19 or the doctor’s office is closed. This disease is not as bad as influenza yet they try to make it sound worse. Also, as they point out there is pressure to inflate the death numbers when many of the people only incidentally had COVID19. I’m sorry, but when somebody blows his brains out with a gun that is not a COVID19 death. You know that the media and governments know they overreacted when they start assigning as many deaths as possible to the condition because they know their actions brought about the destruction of our economy. Trump tried to initially take the correct course, either through good instinct or sheer dumb luck, but was strongly pressured to recommend social distancing by, it seemed, everyone in his circles. We can only hope the economy can bounce back from this. Trump could easily get the governors to open up their states by floating the postponement of elections until next year concept.

    1. It didn’t work out as planned because Trump restricted travel from china in February and was called a racist and that he was overreacting to the situation! The people “who” are trying to destroy this country wanted and planned for this to be much worse but got stopped by Trump. But we have another flue season coming in the fall so we will see what they try next! My wife has been a nurse for 35 years and this has been a big wake-up call for her!

  6. Ive been saying this the whole time. The dumbocraps even stated the only way they had to win in Nov was if the economy tanked and look where we are now. 2 days after their fake impeachment failed here comes the Wuhan Flu from a lab sponsored by Bill Gates and Obummer. Doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. I would like to see Trump ask Fausi why he is on video addressing the CDC on Feb 29th saying it was like a bad cold or mild flu and then reccommends shutting down. Probably got his marching orders from Killary or Gates.

  7. anything posted at variance with the demoncrat party line will be deleted. and governor nauseum will continue to insist he is just obeying the science of the matter.

  8. If you want to see how much Tucker Carlson believes this nonsense that these two “doctors” are preaching, ask him if he goes out in public without a mask…or if he is willing to go and work in one of the meat or chicken processing plants. Trump has decided, once again, to chose his big money donors over the poor ppl that live and work in those death traps. So he needs “doctors” like this to say this trash.

    1. Roxanne, if you think it was appropriate for U tube to take down Dr’s thoughts which they had data and they encouraged all of us to read for ourselves and confirm is for ourselves that it is correct. The people who don’t do it is because you really don’t want to know the truth and then think it is unacceptable for them to let the American people know their research and concerns because they believe different than what U tube and googles CEO’s and owners believe is true. I hope you are one of the first recipients to feel the ramifications of having the government completely rule what you can feel or think. As far as Tucker Carlson is concerned you have no idea how he lives his life but because he thinks different from yourself and your leftist agenda the easiest thing for you to do is bash him thinking you can silence people by your bullying. Again you have no idea how anyone lives their lives unless you are living it with them. Please before you think you have the right to talk about what you think people will do , know that is just what you think will happen NOT FACTS !!!!!

  9. FCC MUST CENSOR YOU TUBE. THESE LEFTIST, AMERICA HATING, PROPAGANDA SPEWING MOUTHPIECES OF ENEMY DEEP STATE NEED TO PAY. HAVE MILITARY LOCK DOWN THEIR FACILITIES AND EXECUTIVES. ARREST ALL EXECUTIVES AND THEIR FAMILIES UNTIL A TOTAL COMPLETE INVESTIGATION TO THEIR TREASONOUS TIES TO OUR ENEMIES ARE EXPOSED. EVEN IF THAT INVESTIGATION TAKES LONGER THAN RUSSIA SCAM THEY HELPED PERPETRATOR!

  10. I strongly disagree with You Tubes CENSORSHIP which is a clear FIRST AMENDMENT VIOLATION. Any video that questions the government narrative but does not promote “radical cure-alls” should NOT BE CENSORED.

  11. We the People of our great country need to stand up and fight for our God givin rights ! The Big text companies who are basically owned by the deep state and new socialist Democrat party need to be put in their place. We the people need to take our country back from the people who want to control every part of our lives. Our time is now before our country is no different than the communist countries we all think are disgusting by how their people are silenced and have no rights or say how their lives are to be lived. My whole family grew up being Democrats but in that time it was just what Trump is saying now buy American put America first. We would of never thought to buy a car unless it was American made. The Democratic Party of today are no different than the socialist leaders who we fought to keep our country safe from. I am embarrassed to even admit I use to be a Democrat with how the actions of todays Democrats are just down right shameful !!!!

  12. I did some research.

    Dr. Erickson is not a medical doctor. He did not go to medical school.
    Dr. Massihi graduated from the UNRANKED Loma Linda School of Medicine. If he is representative of who goes to and graduates from Loma Linda it’s no surprise that it’s “unranked”.

    Real medical doctors who went to RANKED medical schools, understand how dangerous COVID-19 is. These two are an embarrassment to medicine and I was relieved to discover there “bare necessity credntials”. NO intelligent physician would agree with them.

    1. The appropriate question as to their professional status should be simply… “Are they licensed by the State of California as a health care professional and is their license to practice within the guidelines of their specific state board of examiners in good standing”… What facility or institution they graduated from is a moot point since it’s up to the state board to decide if their degree qualifies them to take the appropriate state board examination for licensure.. If their educational credentials are acceptable and they pass all the required California examinations they are Licensed Health Care professionals and free to practice their profession under the state rules and regulations… If you have a valid complaint regarding their professional activity you can file one through their specific California State Board of Examiners..

  13. YouTube supports fraud called – COVID-19 – Why? YouTube hides the truth from people about global warming – why? YouTube bans the truth, stirs up unreasonable panic and constantly lies – why?

  14. NO 2ND AMEN ON THE NET. Romney Rat the pride of Utah will play Judas this year in the celebration of King Herod’s announcement that he will run as a PRO NO CHOICE Democrat.

  15. This is why we need guns. We need a armed revolution in bv this country and the ceoc’s are some of the first we need to take down

  16. It would be a prudent move by our JobMaster General to invite these two on the next and “Special Edition” of the Corona Task Force Briefing!! I have entered many posts on The Donald’s FakeBook page and the posts only last for several minutes !! Anyone else having this problem? If the info they were reporting in the video was indeed numbers reported by the CDC itself ,and it was, why the censorship? And lastly, why haven’t ANY charges been made or started against the blue team? The red team is always on the defense and we need to have some nuts to expose what really needs to be exposed . And let the chips fall where they fall!! Please America, AS LONG AS THE DEMS SUPPORT THE IDEA’S THEY PRESENTLY DO: FULL TERM ABORTION (how did America get here?), UNLIMITED IMMIGRATION AT TAXPAYER EXPENSE, FILLING OUR CHILDREN’S HEADS WITH THE NOTION THAT SEXUAL IDENTITY IS SELECTABLE ( another one of those how did America get here moments. And why is it always boys?), SUPPORTING AND PAYING FOR THE GLOBALISTS IDEA’S THEY THINK IS CORRECT FOR THE WORLD’S POPULATION TO LIVE IN (go to the georgiaguidestones.com for a little taste of what their agenda and end game reality is)!! Everything the dems touch is either wrecked or destroyed completely!! Just look at EVERY DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED STATE IN OUR UNION!! And now they want the taxopayers of our great country to bail them out from all their corruptive decades old practices!! Not this Florida Boy!! They need to have the people that hired them in the first place pay for the ripoffs of these political thieves !!
