Big tech dropped the hammer on Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for posting a video claiming masks are ineffective in fighting COVID-19.  

The doctor has been suspended from YouTube for seven days for saying most over-the-counter masks are ineffective in stopping the transmission of the virus, Newsmax reported.  

The Kentucky senator celebrated the social media suspension.

“A badge of honor,” Paul tweeted. “Leftwing cretins at YouTube banning me for 7 days for a video that quotes 2 peer-reviewed articles saying cloth masks don’t work.” 

This isn’t the first time the outspoken lawmaker has been censored by YouTube. Last week the video platform removed an interview with Newsmax for saying “there’s no value” in wearing masks. 

“They are now banning all my speech, including speech that is given on the Senate floor, which is protected constitutional,” the Kentucky Republican senator told reporters on Tuesday, according to Yahoo News. “YouTube now thinks they are smart enough and godly enough that they can oversee speech, even constitutionally protected speech.” 

Paul is circumventing YouTube, posting a link to the censored video on Liberty Tree.
