Re: Anti-vaxxer Del Bigtree has a channel now huh? No standards at all?

First amendment... protect speech you even disagree with. You are NOT my censor. 


Do you even know the first five words of the first amendment?  I'll save you the trouble of looking them up and include the entirety of the first amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

How does Roku (or any other private entity) allowing or prohibiting content violate the first amendment?  Do you think Roku is Congress?

Roku does need to better monitor what channels are offered. The reason why this particular channel has been removed from YouTube is that it promotes information that is not only incorrect, it's actively dangerous.

Would Roku allow a channel that provides how-tos on bomb making? How to commit suicide? Promoting rape or child molestation?

All media companies must, MUST set a standard not to allow their platforms to be used to promote an active harm. Roku, if you allow channels that promote medical misinformation, you share in the responsibility if people die.

Might want to run that one by your lawyers.

And enough with the censorship complaints. Roku is a private company. It can kick off any channel it wants. Or prevent a channel (ala HBO Max and until recently, Peacock).

Really?
Never heard of him.

I'm big on anti-vax.  What is he promoting that is dangerous?

Seriously?

He's promoting misinformation about vaccine safety, including the situation. Thanks to people like him and that abomination Andrew Wakefield, we've seen a resurgence of diseases such as measles we had at one time almost virtually eliminated.

Wakefield made up his results, and Bigtree grabbed on them with glee because of his failing career—all aided and abetted by irresponsible media platforms and gullible, uneducated, and grossly uninformed conspiracy fruitcakes who just know they know more than all of the world's doctors combined.

Answer your question?

Vaccine hesitancy and the art of family medicine

Instead, only the people who won the wars should be allowed to write the history books - correct?

Good for Roku!! Maybe they're one of the few that haven't been bought out by Big pharma, WHO, or Bill Gates! Let the people think and discern for themselves... Each side of the subject have their own so called experts.. Let the people decide each sides agenda! Like maybe Agenda 21, or Agenda 30!! No thank you! Some of us still want sovereignty over our healthcare, bodies AND country!! Don't give into pressure Roku!! You Go!!! FREEDOM!!!!!

I wonder if you have ever watched an episode, or if you are just paid to write this stuff. He interviews doctors and scientists and presents peer reviewed studies. The show is not anti vaccine but pro safe vaccines. If you are not sponsored to attack the show, then I would encourage you to actually listen to an episode. I would challenge you to read the studies, review all the inquires that have been reported on VAERS , and understand that Vaccine Manufacturers are indemnified from all liability... for a reason. More so now, than ever, if you have family members you care about, it is time to learn about the very real dangers of vaccines. Some of them nay be good, I took all mine, as have my children, but let me tell you, anyone, and I mean anyone that spends any time conducting thorough research on this will find the same truth, and that truth is that many vaccines have proven to be very harmful for a large number of people, causing paralysis, auto-immune diseases, and in some cases death.  A preventative treatment should never be of greater risk than the disease you are protecting against, and for some people, that equation does not balance. There are 2 sides at least to every story and the solution is not to censor one, but to hear both out and make the decision that is right for you. Informed choices can only be made by first being informed. On Youtube you can find porn, pedophilia, dangerous and disturbing content, but those stay uo while scientists and doctors get censored ? Not sure how our society got here, but let me tell you greed and ignorance is the root of it, and always has been.  I wish you all well.

I'm sorry they've made you feel afraid of what might happen if we didn't have their rules and infrastructure to "guide and protect" us.  I sincerely hope you don't lose your offspring once they leave the nest.
