YouTube removed a video of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) recent event in Texas, which featured key conservative figures like former President Donald Trump, Senator Ted Cruz, and Rep Jim Jordan, according to the event’s organizer, the American Conservative Union.

The video was removed for violating the platform’s policy on “misinformation” and the account was given a strike, meaning it cannot post new content for a week. Should the account get two more strikes within a 90 day period, it will be permanently banned.

“The removal of CPAC Texas is yet another example of YouTube censoring conservative voices,” CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp told The Daily Wire. “This cannot continue. The Silicon Valley monopolies abuse their control over the flow of information to prop up the Democrat Party. It’s time we rein in Big Tech.”

CPAC was also given a strike last year after posting a video that covered the class-action lawsuit filed by Trump against Big Tech companies.

At the time, Schlapp said: “It is clear that YouTube censored CPAC because we stood with former President Donald Trump on his lawsuit against Big Tech. This is yet another example of Big Tech censoring content with which they disagree in order to promote the political positions they favor.”
