CENSORED: YouTube/Google are offended by my criticism of the Military Industrial Complex and my advocacy for negotiated settlement in Ukraine, because they are the social media arm of that warmongering Power Elite/MIC. pic.twitter.com/tYe714y7cj

Gabbard had appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” to discuss her advocacy for a negotiated settlement in Ukraine and criticize the Military-Industrial Complex.
On Wednesday evening, Gabbard tweeted a video of someone attempting to watch the interview and the warning that appeared.
“YouTube/Google are offended by my criticism of the Military-Industrial Complex and my advocacy for a negotiated settlement in Ukraine because they are the social media arm of that warmongering Power Elite/MIC,” Gabbard wrote declaring that she is being censored.
Speaking to host Laura Ingraham, Gabbard mocked the “flowery language” being used to get Americans to support involvement in the war.
“People like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, they all this flowery language about how we’ve gotta take a stand and pay the price. The American people need to pay so much more for gas, so much more for food, make these decisions between filling their gas tank and buying groceries because — freedom?” Ms. Gabbard said during the interview.
The liberal media recently mocked Gabbard for comparing censorship in the US to Russia during an appearance on Tuesday’s edition of Jesse Watters Primetime.
“And this is what’s so dangerous about the place that we’re in right now as a country, where this idea, this principle, this foundation of freedom of speech, freedom of expression is directly under threat and under attack,” she said. “And you’re right. It’s not so different. What’s happening here is not that different from what we’re seeing happening in Russia, where you’ve got state TV and controlled messaging across the board. This is where we’re at.”
