Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis Ditches YouTube for Rumble

April 18, 2021

Big tech’s continued crusade to silence conservative views has Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis preemptively ditching YouTube for the alternative video social media site Rumble.

Gov. DeSantis has been silent on his YouTube channel for 3 months and posted a 45-second video on Rumble.

“Some of our biggest media conglomerates, who claim to be avatars of the First Amendment and free exchange of ideas, they really become cheerleaders for censorship,” DeSantis says in the video posted Thursday from one of his recent news conferences. “If something doesn’t fit the overriding narrative, then in their view it’s better that it get left on the cutting room floor. It’s best that you edit it out of existence, rather than actually tell people the truth.

“I think what we’re really witnessing is Orwellian, the big tech, corporate media collusion and the end result is that the narrative is always right. Well, I don’t think that’s what the American people want – certainly not people here in Florida.”

Rumble welcomes DeSantis, a rising star in the Republican Party who is being billed as a potential GOP presidential candidate as soon as 2024. https://www.newsmax.com/politics/rondesantis-bigtech-censorship-rumble/2021/04/18/id/1018045/

Big Tech has become more and more a censoring and political confederacy.

Those who still think that the Constitution of the US will always protect their freedom of religion need to open their eyes (cf. Revelation 3:14-22).

Since we in the CCOG have had problems with YouTube and Vimeo, we have added other channels for our videos.

Rumble is the latest one we have decided to try.

Here is information from CCOG’s Multimedia page:

Prophecy & Sermonette Videos

Jesus said:

7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write,

‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. (Revelation 3:7-8, NKJV throughout unless otherwise specified)

14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14)

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (Matthew 28:19-20)

4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. (John 9:4)

The open door has to do with proclaiming the gospel (cf. 1 Corinthians 6:9; 2 Corinthians 2:12). With Jesus’ words in mind, that is part of why we are on multiple platforms. Here are sermonette platforms:

As regular readers of this COGwriter Church of God News page are aware, for years I have warned about internet censorship–including being block and shadow-banned by Big Tech.

So, we have taken steps, even though we know a famine of the word is coming.

Of course, the CCOG is not the only church affected by Big Tech censoring.

UCG’s president Victor Kubik sent out the following last month:

As the world seems to go mad afresh nearly every day, where do we stand? “The night will close around you, cutting off all your visions. Darkness will cover you” (Micah 3:6-7, New Living Translation). This disturbing prophecy describes a time where a nation blessed by God willfully turns away from the Almighty, where political and religious leaders twist justice and understanding to the point where God Himself declares that they “are leading my people astray!” (verse 5, NLT). Indeed, at this point in prophecy, “they have made their deeds evil” (verse 4, English Standard Version).

Recent and alarming trends are emerging in the United States and abroad. …

One of these alarming acts of digital censorship is called “de-platforming.” U.S. and European governments have severely criticized and investigated the tech giants of the Internet, including Amazon, Google, Apple, Facebook and others for both allowing false, misleading, even harmful information to spread like wildfire and to indiscriminately collect and use data.

These companies responded by independently censoring online information. Major figures have since been “de-platformed,” drawing criticism from world leaders in Europe and elsewhere. All companies, to one degree or another—and including the United Church of God—conduct major parts of their work online.

Further, as has been established, these companies have also unilaterally censored or removed information that does not square with their political and social thought.

This censorship has spread to disabling entire websites and social media platforms like Parler and individuals and organizations on Facebook and Twitter. Now, more and more people and organizations are silenced without warning. This includes churches who openly preach what the Bible says about certain sins.

We have seen other evangelical organizations recently have messages “shadow-banned,” particularly on YouTube. The URL of the message remains online, but it is delisted so it cannot be found on search engines. Both being “de-platformed” and “shadow-banned” could happen to us. There are many who would want to silence our voice of “showing my people their sins” (Isaiah 58:1).

Here in America, we have been blessed with the highest degree of protection for religious freedom in history, but it appears to be eroding rapidly. When I looked up a certain biblical phrase online in preparation for this column, I was advised by my browser that this was “content not suited for everyone”!

In addition to Internet censorship, we are seeing new laws being considered in the United States and abroad that could have dramatic and far-far-reaching negative impacts on the Church of God fellowship.

Current federal legislation called the Equality Act is anything but that. If passed by the Senate and signed into law, it could deliver a stunning blow to religious freedom.

Among other things, the Equality Act offers federal protection to those who would discard the biblical standards of man and woman, male and female. Under this potential law, so-called “gender identity” would be arbitrarily determined by individuals, not by physical genetics. …

Further, some legislatures in Australia, Canada and elsewhere have adopted or are considering laws that legally prohibit any attempt to “deprogram” those who have artificially identified as a member of the opposite sex. Incredibly, in some instances, that ostensibly includes even praying for those individuals to recover! https://www.ucg.org/members/news/personal-from-the-president-march-4-2021

Yes, shadow-banning and de-platforming are happening. We in the CCOG have noticed it for years.

Regarding the end times, Jesus warned:

12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. (Matthew 24:12)

Yes, lawlessness and hypocrisy is abounding without real love.

Jesus also said:

4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. (John 9:4)

Yes, we still can reach people now–and that is why we are also trying out smaller alternatives to Big Tech.

While we can use alternatives to some of Big Tech, these are only temporary as we are getting closer to the prophesied time of the famine of the word (Amos 8:11-12)–and that will also render the alternatives essentially useless.

Should the Church Still Try to Place its Top Priority on Proclaiming the Gospel or Did Herbert W. Armstrong Change that Priority for the Work?
