Google has been forced to admit they censored a speech by Italy's election winner, Giorgia Meloni, which celebrated conservative ideals.
Well, they've kind-of admitted censoring the vide. They actually said the speech was censored "by mistake."
"Google-owned YouTube restored a viral video of a speech from the winner of the Italian election, Giorgia Meloni, claiming it was 'mistakenly' removed from the platform," reported Breitbart.
"The speech went viral after Meloni’s win, but had been posted to the platform without problem since 2019," according to Breitbart.
"In the 2019 speech, which went viral across multiple platforms this week, Meloni gave a fiery defense of the family, the nation, religion, and basic truths about gender, condemning international elites for attempting to reduce people to 'numbers' without any identity," reported Breitbart.
The video has been restored to YouTube at its original link and can be viewed here.
"Upon careful review, we determined this video is not violative of our Community Guidelines and have reinstated it," said YouTube.
"We enforce our policies regardless of the speaker's political views and when it’s brought to our attention that a video has been mistakenly removed, we review the content and take appropriate action, including restoring the relevant videos or channels–as we have done with this video," YouTube added.
