Case in point: Vimeo shushes voice that crosses approved line on COVID

A video exploring Big Tech's censorship of alternative medical views on COVID has itself fallen victim to censorship.

Several big players on the hi-tech virtual playground – such as Facebook, Twitter and others – are removing posts that veer from the Biden/Fauci medical blueprint, which some would say amounts to vaccines, vaccines and more vaccines. Reason & Company – a short video commentary from American Family Association about relevant topics – recently took note that one treatment panned by Biden was creating incredible results:

AFA president Tim Wildmon: "Abe, the Ivermectin story out of India is phenomenal, and yet you can't even talk about it in the U.S., hardly."

AFA legal counsel Abraham Hamilton III: "In one state – Uttar Pradesh – they were overwhelmed with the COVID. The administration there decided to start dispensing Ivermectin overwhelmingly. And in a matter of weeks, you had a 96% drop in cases."

It's likely that an algorithm or an individual at Vimeo picked out the word "Ivermectin," and in short order the video was removed – then AFA's Vimeo account was frozen.

American Family News spoke with AFA executive vice president Ed Vitagliano about Vimeo's response to the video. "The irony is that in our presentation of the fact that the media and Big Social are censoring any alternative views, they actually censored our presentation of that fact – thus proving that it is true," he explains.

Vitagliano wonders how Vimeo and the rest of Big Social can be so sure about which medical treatments work. As he points out, both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Dr. Anthony Fauci (chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden) have released numerous confusing, if not contradictory, recommendations over the past 18 months.

But the AFA spokesman says it's a safe bet that they have censored something that will end up being effective.

"When history writes this chapter in our nation's history – the world's history, really – on this COVID pandemic, I think there's going to be a lot of blood on the hands of people who acted so sure of themselves, and wind up being proven wrong," he offers.

Fauci – in an interview with CNN – has insisted there's "no clinical evidence" that Ivermectin works to treat COVID. But that claim is obviously in dispute now that doctors are prescribing it to patients.

No more 'cancel culture'

Over the weekend, another member of AFA's leadership team announced how the pro-family, faith-based organization plans to avoid future censorship by Vimeo and other video-streaming platforms.

"Until now, we have not been able to offer a one-stop shopping platform where our supporters can view [AFA-produced] resources in a digital format," writes Walker Wildmon, AFA's vice president of operations.

"Previously, we relied on third-party platforms ... to livestream our content," he continues, calling out YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook by name. "Our days of being canceled by culture and banned from speaking the truth are over."

According to Wildmon, the new platform -- "AFA Streaming" -- was built by and will be managed by AFA. He goes on to explain two tiers of user access will be available: one free (with limited access to content) and one based on a minimum monthly donation (with unlimited access for up to five devices).

AFA Streaming is set to launch on November 1.
