Kentucky's Senator Rand Paul was censored by YouTube for questioning the effectiveness of cloth masks. But now he says that even the CDC has come around to his way of thinking.
On Twitter, Paul shared a story that suggested the CDC admitted that cloth masks are not as effective in preventing the spread of Covid as other masks.
Paul wondered whether he would get an apology from YouTube.
“Does this mean snot-nosed censors at YouTube will come to my office and kiss my … and admit I was right?” Sen. Rand Paul tweeted.
The tweet contained a link to a story by the New York Times titled: “The C.D.C. concedes that cloth masks do not protect against the virus as effectively as other masks.”
According to the article, the CDC clarified its stance on masks, “acknowledging that the cloth masks frequently worn by Americans do not offer as much protection as surgical masks or respirators.”
The censorship of his questioning the efficacy of masks was the reason Senator Paul quit YouTube for Rumble.
