YouTube Blacklists Roseanne Barr For Discussing Censorship

A podcast featuring actress and comedian Roseanne Barr was blacklisted on YouTube after she sarcastically discussed censorship with host Theo Von, who is also a comedian.

According to YouTube, the podcast episode was banned because of so-called “hate speech” — despite the fact that Barr’s supposedly hateful comment was obviously sarcastic.

The long discussion between Von and Barr delved into the issue of the 2020 election, where Barr sarcastically expressed support for censorship and Big Tech companies’ embrace of so-called “misinformation” policies.

“I’m glad that they did set up all these guidelines so that we only are allowed to speak the truth,” Barr said mockingly. “And the truth is that Biden got 81 million votes by winning 36 counties. And that is just incredible, it really really is. And of these 81 million supporters who gave him more votes than any president has ever gotten before… I’m just glad that they were very careful to make sure that nobody could ever detract from that proven truth. That they mandated that that was the truth, and that nobody could say ‘well, what about’ — no!”

“So the government made it a mandate?” Von responded.

“YouTube did, and so did all the social media,” Barr explained.

“Oh, so you can’t even speak on that on those platforms,” Von said.

“No, you can’t say, you know,” Barr continued, with Von finishing her sentence by stating: “That the election was rigged?”

“Yeah, that’s all a lie, the election was not rigged,” Barr said sarcastically. “36 counties can give you 81 million votes. That’s a fact.”

“So it wasn’t rigged?” Von replied.

“Of course not! 36 counties have 81 million people in them,” Barr continued. “See? That’s the truth. And don’t you dare say anything against it, or you’ll be off YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and all the other ones. Because there’s such a thing as the truth and facts and we have to stick to it.”

“It’s scary,” Von noted.

Barr proceeded to make another sarcastic comment that was likely the reason behind the episode being blacklisted.

“And that is the truth. And you know, nobody died in the Holocaust either. That’s the truth,” the Jewish comedian said.

Barr has responded to the controversy, saying that she will “not go quietly.”
