Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN), a conservative group known for filming and livestreaming Trump events, claims that YouTube has deleted their video of Trump’s full 2021 CPAC speech and suspended their account from posting new videos for two weeks as a result.

There are still short clips of Trump’s speech available, and Right Side Broadcasting Network’s channel is still viewable (save for Trump’s 2021 CPAC speech.)

The Russian organization RT makes similar claims as RSBN about their video being taken down and receiving warnings.

A search on YouTube for Trump’s 2021 CPAC speech only returns short edited clips, mostly hosted by mainstream media outlets like Politico and NBC.

Suspended For Sharing Trump’s CPAC Speech?

The Right Side Broadcasting Network tweeted Thursday, “RSBN has been suspended from YouTube for two weeks because of the Trump #CPAC2021 speech, which violated their guidelines on election misinformation.”

“The video was approaching 4 million views” RSNB noted. “They have also removed it from their platform.”

RSBN’s Twitter account has over a half million followers.

RSBN followed up with a subsequent tweet:

“It’s worth noting that according to YouTube’s terms, our video of Trump’s CPAC speech would have been allowed to stay up had we provided ‘countervailing viewpoints,” RSBN noted. “Essentially we would have had to go on air and say everything Trump just said about election fraud is not true.”

RSBN added, “Even if we believed that, we wouldn’t sell out like that and say it just to keep a video up. We try to follow the rules.”

“Don’t air certain things that we normally would—but we won’t censor President Trump or push back against things he says that, quite frankly, we agree with,” RSBN wrote.

Trump’s Full CPAC Speech Can’t Be Found On YouTube At The Moment

Later, RSBN claimed they noticed that uploads of Trump’s full CPAC speech had been deleted from other channels, including mainstream media sources.

Other CPAC speeches remain available and also plenty of videos that are critical of former President Trump.

Mainstream outlets still have short clips of Trump’s speech available on YouTube, for example, this 3 minute cut from Politico:

Don Jr. Chimes In

Donald Trump Jr. weighed in on the deletion of the videos on his Twitter.

“This sort of manipulation and interference only shows how much weight these monopolies put on the scale of freedom. It’s never going to end until we all band together to stop it,” tweeted Trump Jr.

In another tweet in which Dn Jr. retweeted Megyn Kelly’s concerns about Big Tech and censorship, Trump Jr. wrote, “And if you notice the censorship seems to only really go one way.”

Our 45th President’s full 2017 CPAC speech can still be viewed on YouTube for those looking for a trip down memory lane.
