TruNews Permanently Banned From YouTube

On February 20th, 2020 the Twitter account for TruNews announced that YouTube had permanently banned their account from the video sharing service.

They had a follow-up tweet noting that even though they were wiped off of YouTube, you can still find their videos over on the official TruNews website.

It’s not entirely clear what led to the ban this time, but Newsweek has a biased and inflammatory recount of the channel, claiming they made claims against the Jews, when in reality they just shared an opinion that the establishment would rather keep suppressed.

The channel was created by Flowing Springs Church pastor Rick Wiles from out of Vero Springs, Florida. Newsweek believes the ban was part of a crackdown from YouTube following Wiles’ comments from back in November, 2019, where he stated that the impeachment of President Donald Trump was part of a Jew coup. In the article they quoted a statement from the now deleted video where Wile said…

“That’s the way the Jews work. They are deceivers. They plot, they lie, they do whatever they have to do to accomplish their political agenda. This impeach Trump movement is a Jew coup.”

That particular video, along with all of the channel’s content has been removed from YouTube.


Originally YouTube simply removed the video in December of 2019, following complaints from the usual suspects, but opted not to ban TruNews, as reported the Independent.

However, it’s not hard to see why YouTube ramped up its witch hunt against TruNews. In mid-January of 2020, the ADL boasted about another witch hunt against TruNews that resulted in them being banned from PayPal, Bloomerang, and Spreedly.

Just one month later and YouTube decided to pull the plug on the channel. It didn’t even take 24 hours before Google wiped all the links off the search engine, making it difficult to find any references to the channel’s content.

According to Social Blade they had more than 196,000 subscribers and more than 1.3 million video views.
