YouTube Removes John MacArthur Sermon Clip for ‘Violating Community Guidelines’

YouTube has continued to crack down on free speech and alternative media reporting, removing a recently uploaded clip from a John MacArthur sermon because it ‘violated community guidelines.’

The clip, initially posted by Tim Hurd of BibleThumpingWingnut (BTWN) was little more than a segment from a recent sermon by Pastor John MacArthur. BTWN had uploaded the clip to their Youtube Channel and it had amassed over 110,000 views before it was taken down, ostensibly because no one is allowed to doubt the extent, fullness and horror of the pandemic from our media betters. In fact, you’re not even allowed to quote information that our media betters give us about the pandemic back at them, less you get kneecapped.

Though that clip may be gone from BTWNM, it is not forgotten. We at Pulpit & Pen don’t use Youtube, for this very reason, but rather upload to alternative video hosting sites with much stricter standards for taking videos down. It means we don’t get to monetize them, but we rely on listener support instead, with ways of support seen at the end of the article, so it’s harder to get rid of us. And wouldn’t you know it, we have that video here, along with what was said that was deemed so offensive as being removed.


“A rather telling report came out this week and for the first time we heard the truth. The CDC, the center for disease control, which is a national organization- government organization that is, to report to us truth about disease, said that.

In truth, 6% of the deaths that have occurred can be directly attributable to COVID. 94% cannot. Of the 160,000 people that have died, 9210 actually died from COVID. There is no pandemic.

And that’s what you’ve been thinking. We have the responsibility I think as spiritual leaders, to be patient until the truth emerges. We’ve all been suspicious of the fact that we’ve been meeting together now for weeks and weeks and weeks and we don’t know anyone who’s ill. Nobody in our congregation has ever been to the hospital with this.

It’s clear to us the fabrication of numbers, because they’re including people who have had 2 or 3 co-morbidities, we know all of that. We know there are reasons for this that have nothing to do with the virus.
