surprised zuckerberg took some action - if these were political videos containing patently false/fake information purporting to be truthful, he would of done nothing.

Oops ! I too watched the video and yes even though I don't personaly think everything made sense, she did have some very good points.

Now that it is removed only further raises suspicion ..

Hope she won't be jailed again.

If masks make us sick, as this video proposes, why don't we have an epidemic of sick nurses, doctors, painters, construction workers, etc, who've worn masks every day for years?? No, what we have instead is an epidemic of stupidity and gullibility among the Americans who believe this nonsense.

This is indicative of today's society and Hollywood fuels it! Think of all the movies and TV shows that if they don't start out with some deep conspiracy at some point it will be introduced! Take the fun teenage comic book Archie what do we get Riverdale a dark view of life with conspiracy, etc... everything today is a conspiracy if you listen to social media and watch wedge movies or TV. What a sad world we seem to have created! Most of the time if you hear the sound of hooves it is more than likely a horse not a Zebra!

This video clearly has some nutter type thinking going on!!!

I have noticed while watching youtube their are MANY video's where they will NEVER mention corona or covid 19 as at minimum they lose monetaiation or video's get pulled by youtube.

Same when using words of a sexual nature, no matter the context, same with some slang words, many creators are very leery of what they say etc

Seems youtube is going off the deep end & is becoming quite highly censored, not good.

She had some very valid points, but typical that the focus was to remove her video to remove all the information she was trying to disseminate.

The more you expose yourself to various things the more your immune system will develop was the point and that is fact.

Of course over exposure wont be a good thing.

Keep an open mind, or trust your govt and the media blindly at your own peril.

I trust neither as i have seen how they operate !

Bjorn, I would suggest you add conspiracy theorists to that list.

Religious leaders as well.

Mikovits says in the video that wearing masks activates the coronavirus within people

What is it that is activating the nutjobs within people in America? There seems to a production line of insane people competing to spout the most preposterous tosh.

YouTube is now censoring? I thought we had our own intellect to judge what is right and wrong? Speaking of censorship. I can not write what I want even on this site.

5 ( +7 / -2 )

Why would she risk her reputation, career and media attacks by making those very valid points if she wasn't convinced by the facts? There was nothing to gain.

I know big pharma well, having much experience with them and the medical system. They are using this virus as a Trojan horse to lobby for mandatory vaccines, just as she claims.

Shame on YouTube for censoring her.

Bjorn Tormention, unfortunately, some people confuse ‘opened minded’ with ‘empty headed’, don’t they? It’s quite a common ailment amongst anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists, but fortunately, there is also a sure-fire cure: a comprehensive education. Unfortunately, I suspect that such people have been lead to believe that that cure is the real cause of cancer, Covid 19 and communism.

Shes not the only doctor saying that wearing mask all the time is unhealthy.

Dont you all get a sore throat after a while wearing a mask? I know I do. Plus your getting less oxygen. It definitely not benefiting your own immune system.

When did we all wake up in Nazi Germany world wide and everyone is applauding it. If the video can be debunked, make a rebuttal and debate it. Don't just delete something because the WHO doesn't like it. Seriously? You guys really are fascists.

Why don't you all move to China already. Japan doesn't need you.

Exactly.

I hope those that are applauding this kind of censorship realize where we are headed. Total centralized control of the dissemination of information and no dissent from the party line permitted, like China.

Be careful what you wish for. It might come back to bite you.

'Unhealthy'? She is claiming that your mask activates the virus. As if by magic. She's a proven fraud & crackpot, making millions out of gullible conspiracy mugs. We can thank the nutjob-in-chief Trump for allowing multiple frauds like her to have their 15 minutes of fame. You can still buy her book in the Nazi world if you want a sad laugh.

I'd steer clear of her medical advice though.

If masks make us sick,

Remember back a few months ago when people in the US were told by the media that masks might not (were not?) be necessary? Nonsense, right?

@clippy

No that's not what she said. You're just repeating the bunk reason YouTube gave you for deleting the video for. Watch the video if you can and find out for yourself what it's all about. But I understand. You rather have the media misconstrued everything for you so you can be lazy and just repeat it.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

I really cant stand everyone just going along with the censorship. They delete thousands of hours of content all the time and they give you a silly misconstrued reason Everytime the delete something. When the actual content of these deleted video has many different facets to it.

Ofcourse saying mask give you coronavirus is idiotic. You really think a scientist would say that. Come on people get a clue.

In an ideal world, yes. We do love in a world where people are willingly spreading misinformation. In academic circles in which claims are examined objectively and are peer reviewed, it is ok. But people do believe what they see YouTube videos and do not have the capabilities to determine the truth.

Now, I don't care if they want to share moon landing or flat earth conspiracies, but when lives are at stake, and these myths can result in death, then it can be necessary to act.

This sounds like dangerous nonsense. Where does this "fact" come from or is it an "alternative fact"? You either catch the virus or you don't. You do not get slowly immune to it. The only way is through a vaccine.

Why would she risk her reputation, career and media attacks by making those very valid points if she wasn't convinced by the facts? There was nothing to gain.

What reputation? She has been academically without one since a scandal a decade ago.

https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/05/fact-checking-judy-mikovits-controversial-virologist-attacking-anthony-fauci-viral#

She can now make a living by spreading anti-science myths and selling her quack books.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

No that's not what she said. You're just repeating the bunk reason YouTube gave you for deleting the video for.

Erm, this is what she said below. She literally said that wearing a mask literally activates the virus, which she also claims was in the flu vaccine. Apparently despite being in the flu vaccine from 2013-2015, it is only the masks of 2020 that can 'activate' the virus. Crackpot, fraud and then some.

“Wearing the mask literally activates your own virus. You're getting sick from your own reactivated coronavirus expressions and if it happens to be SARS-CoV-2 then you've got a big problem.”

“It’s plausible, it’s probable that it’s been in every flu vaccine since ‘13 to ‘15 because that’s when this work was being illegally done,”

Ofcourse saying mask give you coronavirus is idiotic. You really think a scientist would say that. Come on people get a clue.

And yet she did indeed say it. You can 'get a clue' about 2 minutes into the video linked below, when she actually says it.

She did raise some very interesting points. Just think about this one. When there is a corona shot - and there will be one - it's going to be mandatory for EVERYONE. Even if it's ten yen a shot - which is eight and a half more yen than it cost to produce - multiply that by the world population!

Do you think big pharma is going to donate the corona shot just out of a feeling of benevolence to humanity?

@Cippy

Thats different from a mask giving you covid-19. If your breathing in the same pathogens in your body for a long time due the restrictions from a mask it makes sense you'll get sick.

I don't see anything wrong with her claim. Your first statement was that mask give you covid-19, if you say it like that, it sounds crazy. Words and context matters. And even if it's wrong she has a right to say it and if you can prove she's wrong than please do.

As of now she is not the only doctor saying this. There are other doctors who have also been removed from WHOTube that have said the same thing.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

@Ah_so

Its true. Getting viruses and pathogens builds your immune system. When babies put crap in their mouth they are putting all kinds of pathogens in their body. The immune system fights back and makes the body stronger. This is also why we give children vaccines. Where you give a weak version of the virus so the immune system can learn to make the right antibodies to control the virus. Right now, you have all kinds of viruses and bacteria in your body the the immune system has in check. Everytime you go outside you breath in and ingest bacteria and viruses all day and your immune system is making antibodies for them. You are a walking community of pathogens.

@Whatsnext, lol, you've gone from this

Ofcourse saying mask give you coronavirus is idiotic. You really think a scientist would say that. Come on people get a clue.

to this in about 12 hours

I don't see anything wrong with her claim.

I'll walk you through her nonsense. She claims that the Covid virus was put into flu vaccines between 2013-2015. And then wearing a mask 'activates' this flu virus. There is no evidence of this being true of course, but lots of evidence for it being false.

Why wasn't the virus 'activated' between 2015-2020 by people wearing masks?

How exactly does a mask 'activate' a virus? Do all masks do this?

Does every person who had a flu shot have the covid virus?

How did the virus remain untedetected for 7 years despite it being present in hundreds of millions of people?

It's preposterous. I feel preposterous even having to explain why it is so preposterous to you.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Your basing your opinion on the article you read. Watch the movie and come up with your own opinion.

And it wasn't the flu vaccines that she's claiming. It's the swine flu vaccine which is part of the sars family. That article has many misconstrued info on it. So you got all your info messed up.

Ad she didnt literally say mask gives you coronavirus. Please look up the word literally.

There are also other accusations against fauci and who. So I think there is more to the story than your NBC article.

Why are stupid people so stupid

Freedom of the press comes with responsibility. False messages like this and Donnie's irresponsible statement about 'injecting disinfectant into your veins' has got some gullible people killed. And the stupid American Qaddafy Trump may have laughed about that like the boorish jackass that he is. And does anyone remember Heaven's Gate, the Order of the Solar Temple and other mass cult suicides stemming from the apparition of Comet Hale-Bopp?

I did! I'm basing what I said on what she actually said! I even gave you links showing what she actually said!

Ad she didnt literally say mask gives you coronavirus.

"Wearing the mask literally activates your own virus."

As I originally stated in my above post, she is 'literally' claiming that a mask 'activates' the virus. Don't rewrite what I said to suit you shaky conclusions.

And it wasn't the flu vaccines that she's claiming.

"“It’s plausible, it’s probable that it’s been in every flu vaccine since ‘13 to ‘15 "

Try again fella.

Watch the movie and come up with your own opinion.

This is laughable, since I watched the movie and did just that, whereas you haven't even watched it or come up with your own opinion.

Come on man, do some critical thinking. I've given you solid evidence. If you are looking for a way to distrust 'Big Pharma' then you need a credible conspiracy from people with a shred of credibility.

Crip

Please cite the time in the video where you share that quote. I don't think you've watched it and are only quoting that NBC article. You lack context and obsess on only one point of the video with no context.

What do you think of her claims about the HIV virus or even the other doctors featured in the video?

By the way. You won't be able to find the quote, because it's not in the video.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

This is getting bizarre! You've gone from denying that she said it, to accepting that she did, to denying that she did once again in less than a day. Is this that famous 'sarcasm' routine?

Please cite the time in the video where you share that quote. I don't think you've watched it and are only quoting that NBC article.

I already did! It's literally her there at 2:06 in the link I provided, that I will provide again.

https://www.wthr.com/article/verify-plandemic-documentary-full-misinformation

It is also here too at 21:13, the exact same words coming out of her mouth. The same as I quoted, the same ones as detailed in the very article that you are commenting on!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAbMZL2OcvQ

In the same wthr video above at 2:28 you can see her uttering the quote below

“It’s plausible, it’s probable that it’s been in every flu vaccine since ‘13 to ‘15 because that’s when this work was being illegally done,”

By the way. You won't be able to find the quote, because it's not in the video.

I've proven the quote exists several times to you with evidence. I can't actually make you click it and hear though, that bit you have to do alone.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Its in the news piece but not in the video. You didn't watch the actual video you just watched the news piece that took everything out of context. I'm not saying she's right. My point is she has a right to say it.

On top of that. All those doctors in that video door the most part have been deleted from that video for questioning the narrative.

So you haven't found the quote. It's not in the video. Maybe if you actual watch both videos from the sources you might be able to understand what shes is trying to say in context instead of just repeating that NBC article.

I do have critical thinking and I believe the video was pulled because of not what she was saying about the mask as cited by YouTube as the reason but rather the claims against fauci and the other content of doctors in the video who's videos have also been banned.

How can people actually have a debate when everything filtered through msm and what YouTube/ Facebook seems as accurate or not? Every mainstream article is for censorship and citing this mask gives you coronavirus with out any context. I rather seem what she is saying and other doctors are saying rather than WHO approves doctors and come to a conclusion. Why not have doctors and scientist have a public debate instead of just deleting opinions that don't go with the narrative.

And if you actually watch the video you'll realize there's more to it than mask and vaccine quote. She may have a point. Like she made with Italy. Or what actually happened during the aids epidemic? Did fauci stall it? Was information stolen and hidden. It's really her word against theirs. And the whole media establishment with silicon valley full force against the video raises red flags for me. Instead of deleting it and taking snippets of what she said out of context and laughing at it doesn't convince me.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Its in the news piece but not in the video.

Good, you admit once again that she said it. Try and keep some consistency. Its in both videos. It's the same footage, the same quote, from the same person.

you just watched the news piece that took everything out of context.

Go on then. What context should this be taken in?

“Wearing the mask literally activates your own virus. You're getting sick from your own reactivated coronavirus expressions and if it happens to be SARS-CoV-2 then you've got a big problem.”

My point is she has a right to say it.

She had the right to say it, she said it, and can freely say it to whover she wants. But publishers aren't obliged to publish it. Why do you think she is being denied her right to say it?

and I believe the video was pulled because of not what she was saying about the mask as cited by YouTube as the reason but rather the claims against fauci and the other content of doctors in the video who's videos have also been banned.

Wrong again.* “We quickly remove flagged content that violates our community guidelines, including content that includes medically unsubstantiated diagnostic advice for COVID-19.” - Youtube spokesman*

It's really her word against theirs.

It's not 'her word', because as a disgraced scientist her word counts for for little. Scientific research is not based on a person's word, it's on their proven scientific results. She's a proven bad scientist spouting unproven and crackpot ideas.

And the whole media establishment with silicon valley full force against the video raises red flags for me.

Don't your flags get raised when dodgy scientists claim that the covid virus was introduced to the world in 2013 via the flu shot, and then was activated several years later by simply putting on a mask?

Like I said, critical thinking.

...also don't her claims contradict the Republican's big push to lay all of this at China's door? Right-wingers must be confused as to which liars to believe, Trump's gang or the whackjob scientist.
