Dear YouTube Censors,
I am the author interviewed on February 22 by Dr. Anthony Harper, White House Correspondent for the Intermountain Christian News, which you removed from YouTube because of alleged “misinformation” claiming that voting irregularities during the 2020 election altered the result. You went further in your censorial zeal by holding Dr. Harper responsible for my alleged sins, imposing a 90-day ban on his broadcasts and threatening him with permanent removal if he has the temerity to disagree with your censorship publicly.
The subject of our interview was my book Final Battle: The Next Election Could Be the Last, whose descriptions of voting irregularities and attempts by the Democrat Party to make cheating in elections easier you want to keep from the voting public.
By suppressing my interview with Dr. Harper, you have effectively suppressed my research and observations about this most serious of matters, and have done so without explanation except the vague unsupported claim that my challenge to an election result must be suppressed. Since you provide no specific evidence to refute my claim, you are also arguing that any challenge to an election result is off-limits and needs to be suppressed.
Since you claim to be willing to hear appeals to your decisions, kindly respond to these requests.
- Provide me with concrete evidence for your claim that irregularities in the presidential election of 2020 did not affect the election result. Please answer the specific analyses and claims made in Dinesh D’Souza’s recent book 2000 Mules and Mollie Hemingway’s book Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech and the Democrats Seized Our Elections. And of course, please address the claims made in my book Final Battle: The Next Election Could Be the Last, which you have so far chosen to suppress rather than answer.
- Please explain why YouTube has not censored and punished Rep. Jamie Raskin and his Democrat colleagues who went into the well of the House in January 2017 to challenge the legitimacy of the Trump election and call for the decertification of Trump Electors. Such challenges to the legitimacy of a presidential election were mounted by Democrats in every election that a Republican won since 1980.
- Since your decisions to censor opinions regarding the legitimacy of elections have been so arbitrary, so ungrounded in obvious facts and so politically biased in favor of the Democrats, please tell me why anyone should treat you as a legitimate arbiter of what is “misinformation” and what is not.
Below see the letter YouTube sent to Dr. Harper:

Barry Spinello says
Disgraceful. But issues like this need to be framed in such a way to go before a Court – and the Supreme Court.
Many of the battles being waged can only be settled by non political courts – if that is possible. How can such a case be framed? The left is awash in money from nonprofits. Can nonprofit be court defined. The left earns their living from nonprofits. Isn’t that profit?
I like Rumble and I think we should utilize the resources that support free content. I think 2023 could be the end of the Democratic Party. People are waking up and it’s very obvious that Trump won and they feel threatened, that’s why they censor which is illegal. That’s why Rumble’s stock is going up and Google is going down, Remember My Space?
The Supreme court would probably just dismiss it because it has no “legal standing” whatever that means.
When have federal courts, or any court really, been non political? They’re staffed by humans, who are always political at some level.
Pat Gutenberg says
testing free speech
Ugly Sid says
Joseph Robinette Biden is a conman and thief whose presence in our White House is a canard achieved by election tampering, depriving America of a Constitutionally valid national election.
He is the public face of pervasive, republic-killing corruption. While a Special Prosecutor terrorises the staff of the expunged prior administration, the Left gloats. Like a political candiru, they’ve come to stay.
We only have to wait until the left destroys itself with all of its political correctness. It will start to devour its own eventually.
Goodnight Irene says
Things are getting sicker and more dangerous by the day. Now I know why God created human beings to have a limited life span. It would be a living hell to be stuck in this twisted, sinful world for much longer. Most of us here posting on FPM are near the end but what future generations are facing is truly horrific.
David, you have done a great work for decent, hardworking, God-fearing Americans. That things in our nation are quickly deteriorating is an indication that God is either trying to get our attention in order that we repent or he is testing how much we trust Him like Job. These Marxist thugs won’t be allowed to go unchecked forever because there are always consequences to sin. It took 80 some years but the Soviet Union ultimately collapsed.
We are so grateful for all you have done. Much affection, Irene
Now I understand why God would wipe out entire populations and tell his People to do the same. Sometimes there is no reforming the population.
Sword of the Spirit says
Now there is no “reforming” the entire population of earth. So…….”the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” 2 Peter 3:10
King James Version (KJV)
Goodnight Irene says
Correct. The Old Testament is full of these stories. We are to stand up to evil.
Robert O'Donnell says
“Now I know why God created human beings to have a limited life span.”
God created man with immortal as an immortal being, “with the possibility of transgressing…” Man was created with eternal life, and fell from it. Jesus restored that life for all who are “called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28
“After God had made all other creatures, he created man, male and female, with reasonable and immortal souls, endued with knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness after his own image, having the law of God written in their hearts, and power to fulfill it; and yet under a possibility of transgressing, being left to the liberty of their own will, which was subject unto change. Besides this law written in their hearts, they received a command not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; which while they kept were happy in their communion with God, and had dominion over the creatures.” – Westminster Confession of Faith, §4.2.

“it’s important to us that YouTube is a safe place for all.”
All apart from children that is. Goolag do everything in their power to make it hard to protect children from inappropriate sexual content.
Use Rumble instead, it is growing in popularity.
Premise: If these types of protections apply to children, these protections should apply to adults. Should we be any less concerned.
The Left defines “safe” as free from conflicting ideas and information. Let’s face it: It is females much more than males who define this sensibility. There are evolutionary as well as learned reasons for this. The result is an increasingly stupid society.
Nicolas Carras says
One more proof that these people are at the service of the destroyers of free speech and therefore the enemies of the American constitution, of free thinkers, of conservatives. History holds cowards for what they really are: cowards.
Steven Brizel says
You should hire counsel and take You Tube to Court based on what is clearly a violation of the First Amendment
too bad he can’t. READ that First Article of Ammendment once more: it starts out with CONGRESS shall make no law……. unfortunately the rulers of YouToob are not cngress, and thus are not subject to this prohibition.
The remaining Articles in our bill of Rights are not addressed to Congress, but to the right itself, then move to protect that right against any actors. Too bad they did ot frame this First the same way.
You would have to establish before the court that YooToob are acting under some law Congress have made. That would be a long stretch.
The answer is to vote with our cursors and just don’t go to YooToob.And especially don’t post anything there without a private backup copy. Once the Toob shuts you down they destroy all our content……and you cannot stop them. Once you publish sometihng there THEY own it. Unless you have a backup copy.
In short, they own ALL the marbles. They fool you by sometimes letting you play with sime of them, but you never OWN them.
The entire Constitution is addressed to Congress, the Executive, and the Judiciary. Its purpose is to limit what the government can do, not to limit the otherwise legal activities of private people and companies.

Steve Chavez says
FB too! I’ve been in ZUCK’S Reeducation Gulag several times.
One person, head of The Party for Socialism and Liberation, FB “Marxist-Leninist”, put a very vile and violent cartoon of Trump so I flagged FB. “Not against our Standards.” He then put NUDE photos of Melania. “Not against our Standards.” I put a Google photo of Hillary in a U.S. Flag bathing suit.” “30 day suspension.”
Other times in The Gulag. GUESS WHAT? IT WORKS. I’m more careful on what I write and I think before I post. If you offend the Crybabies, they’ll flag you and FB agrees. I flag them for extreme views, racism, threats, nothing. THEREFORE, “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!”
“THEY/THEM.” Our local communist… oops my fingers automatically write that… again… community college, Central NM in Albuquerque REQUIRES all employees to introduce themselves with PRONOUNS! If you misidentify someone, to the office you go! Everyone is afraid. Radicals took over the college newspapers in the ’80s and the same at UNM which is now run by the LGBTQWXYZ (“STONE HIM!”) and use the paper to promote their agenda.
Goodnight Irene says
We love a fighter, Steve. Thank you so much for all your attempts at getting the truth out there. I am sick to death of the this twisted, evil Marxist crap that Obama and Soros have resurrected that I am convinced the only thing that’s going to stop it in its tracks is bloodshed, it’s that serious. We all know it.
But YouTube does accept the legal immunity provided it by Section 230 of the Telecommunications Decency Act of 1996 that is based on the idea that it is a platform and not a publisher exercising editorial control. What a farce.
Steve Chavez says
YOUTUBE HASN’T TAKEN DOWN SNOOP DOGG’S SHOOTING TRUMP! Numerous sites posted it, are they banned? We all know, MILLIONS CHEERED! Hey, it’s Snoop “Stoned Crotch Grabber” Dogg. He even gets a Super Bowl halftime show. Beyonce and Ho’s too with their raised BLACK POWER fists. Was that show banned for blatant racism and Black Supremacy?
Steve Chavez says
Have other platforms taken down, or not allowed, Snoop Dogg’s obvious promotion of assassinating a President? Did the SS visit him?
Stephen Triesch says
Snoop Dogg was rewarded with a half-time gig at the 2022 Super Bowl.
Calvin Broaddus aka “Snoop Dogg” long has hated whites.
This should not be allowed… period….
Angel Jacob says
The left has gone full fascist.
Anybody who disagrees with their tyranny will be silenced by labeling them as misinformation, or racist.
There is a time to argue with reasoning, and there is a time to fight a real fight to seriously hurt the leftist fascists. Obviously reasoning never works with the tyrants. So it’s option two, or lose all freedoms.
If YouTube and Facebook get away with deciding what you’re
allowed to think and say – how long will it be before the
government gets away with it?
James Stagg says
They are already there……for two years and more.
more like at least 160 years and counting
go and learn the truth about a former corporate railroad lawyer from Illinois. Back about then…..
We’re already there…
Kynarion Hellenis says
Give me SAFETY, or give me death!
At least you have a whole website to talk back with. I use my business website and go more broke than woke, and so most people just get crushed in the night.
James Stagg says
Can a lawsuit be formed in such a way that the use of Section 230 as a shield can be halted by federal court (country-wide) for obvious discrimination? Letters like this one to Dr. Harper are obvious lies when compared to the trash that Utub already allows. Is this not evidence of bias to the courts?
SUE! Mr Horowitz
Ricardo (Dick) Pacetti says
You Tube is admitting that you are correct on all counts about the 2020 election.
David Horowitz expects too much from the Democrat Communist controlled Propaganda Media.
What does he think this is—a Free Country?
Dana F Harbaugh says
David, have you or anyone else written about the inevitable censoring of entitlement recipients?
It’s my theory that, similar to the DEI gatekeepers of scholarships and grants via loyalty oaths, Social Security, Medicare and even Veterans benefits will be denied to American taxpayers and Vets for any “wrong-think” that can be found online.
Sorry Mr. Smith, although you’re a 100% service-connected combat veteran, we noticed you wrote some things online that we disagree with… therefore, all your benefits have been withdrawn and you’re VA file has been amended to note your poor Social Media Credit Rating.
Facial recognition cameras at all VA clinics and hospitals will automatically contact local security guards if you are within 50′ of any VA facility .(or Social Security office)
Thank you for your service.
Stephen Triesch says
The leftist media always claim that accusations of irregularities in the 2020 election are made “without evidence.” Then, when someone submits evidence, the evidence is banned and suppressed. Meanwhile, when the left – including Joe Biden – repeatedly called Donald Trump an “illegitimate president,” no one ever demanded evidence, and only the vaguest references to “Russian interference” on a few obscure websites were ever offered to support the claim.
James H says
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
C. S. Lewis
So very appropriate in todays politic. Speak out & loudly to the tyrants!
