Early on June 1, 2021 Eric Metaxas Radio Show videos were removed and a lot of content from Metaxas was purged. As Metaxas reacts to the situation this blog believes his radio show was removed for spreading disinformation about COVID-19, face masks, and vaccination. To Eric Metaxas and his disinformation campaigns this blog has one thing to say. Good riddance.
“I follow three rules: Do the right thing, do the best you can, and always show people you care.”
so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
Hebrews 9:28 ESV
Late this afternoon on June 1, 2021 YouTube removed all of Eric Metaxas videos from his radio show. This blog is not aware of how many were removed but it was a large and sizable amount. Early this evening the evangelical author sent out an email that I will have below. I have some thoughts as to what led to the removal of Eric Metaxas.
Eric Metaxas Emails His Supporters About His Radio Show Being Removed From YouTube
This is part of the email that Eric Metaxas sent out to his supporters. He is moving over to Rumble.
It’s happened. Despite our going FAR out of our way to comply with their arbitrary “community standards”, YouTube decided to know every single video we’ve ever done on the Eric Metaxas Show off their platform. It was not something we expected, but then again “NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!” In related news, the CCP and the North Korean government ALSO refuse to air our videos.
But seriously, these are dark days for America. Please do me a BIG favor and subscribe to my radio show on RUMBLE — here is the link! And please sign up anyone you can think of to get these newsletters right here! We would be very grateful for that.
When you go to Facebook and look for the link to the radio show, this is what happens at YouTube. You can see for yourself.
For What Reason Was Metaxas Radio Show Kicked Off YouTube?
In poking around the internet its too early and not many reactions have come forward. But if this blog was to take an educated guess as to why the Eric Metaxas Radio Show was removed from YouTube it is probably due to the following reason. Eric had became anti-vaxx and supported conspiracy theories on vaccination against COVID-19. I deleted it but the other day in one of his emails Metaxas was politicizing and casting doubt about face masks, COVID and vaccination. So I believe the Eric Metaxas Radio Show was kicked off due to spreading disinformation about COVID-19 and vaccines. Remember Eric Metaxas was held up by many evangelicals as the model of evangelical intellectualism, which in the end means absolutely nothing.
How do I feel about Eric’s removal? Honestly I feel good. People like Eric Metaxas need to learn that actions have consequences, and spreading disinformation intentionally is a serious matter. You don’t want to be banned or kicked off? Its easy, don’t spread conspiracies and crap. That’s it. If conspiracies are what the author known for “Socrates in the City” then all I will say is good riddance. But for the meantime I am going to subscribe to Rumble as someone needs to see what garbage Eric Metaxas is going to be pumping out next.
