Just before YouTube lifted the ban on the organization, right-wing pastor Rick Wiles announced that “Jesus Christ closed right-wing observation.”
On Monday, YouTube released Initially thought to be a permanent injunction On Right Wing Watch, the organization has repeatedly shared potentially unpleasant videos featuring Wiles as the protagonist over the years. In an appearance on TruNews, his conspiracy news outlet, Wiles celebrated the ban while insisting that it was a sacred revenge against right-wing observations.
“Let me state this very clearly today: Jesus Christ closed right-wing observation,” Wiles said on the radio, which caused a chorus of “Amen” by his two co-hosts. “It’s not YouTube. Jesus Christ closed Right Wing Watch today. This is an example of God working unsaved people on YouTube to retaliate against those who attacked and slandered his servants.”
“I don’t have to move my fingers on Right Wing Watch,” Wiles added. “I think they will disappear in the next few weeks and months, and now they don’t make any sense.”
Wiles also celebrated the brief ban Twitter, Calling this group of people “the strongest enemy” of TruNews and quoting the biblical verse of Romans 12:19, which says: “My dear, never avenge yourself, but give it to the wrath of God Because it says,’The revenge is mine, the Lord said, I will reciprocate.'”
After Wiles called for the first impeachment of the former president, TruNews was permanently banned by YouTube last year Donald Trump “Jew shooting”.
Soon after Wiles celebrated its brief ban, Right Wing Watch returned to the popular video platform. YouTube explained to The Daily Beast that the group was “wrongly suspended” and stated that the error was related to a large amount of content.
“Right Wing Watch’s YouTube channel was suspended by mistake, but after further review, it has now been resumed,” YouTube told the media in a statement.
On Tuesday, right-wing observers shared footage of Wiles’ celebration on TruNews, with a “bad” comment.
The group is a project of the Progressive Group for the American Way People, which was founded in 1981 by TV producer Norman Lear. It plans and shares media clips, usually far-right figures who support conspiracy theories or statements that the group considers harmful.
“We are very pleased that by restoring our account, YouTube recognizes our position that there is a world of difference between reporting offensive activities and implementing these activities,” the American people said in a statement. “We hope this is the end of a years-long struggle with YouTube to understand the nature of our work.”
The statement continued: “We remain committed to exposing the threats and harmful activities of the far-right, and we are happy to provide us with YouTube again to continue our work.”
