Ron Paul announces one of his channels has been removed from YouTube, YouTube then says it was a “mistake”

Thursday, libertarian and former Presidential candidate Ron Paul announced one of his YouTube channels “The Ron Paul Institute” has been removed from YouTube.

Paul wrote “Very shocked that @YouTube has completely removed the Channel of my Ron Paul Institute: no warning, no strikes, no evidence. Only explanation was “severe or repeated violations of our community guidelines.” Channel is rarely used. The appeal was automatically rejected. Help?”

Paul included screen shots of the email he received from Google owned YouTube.

Paul appealed and the removal was upheld based on “Community Guidelines and Terms of Service.”

YouTube later replied and said it was a mistake.

“Heard back from our team that this was a mistake and your channel has been reinstated. Thanks for being patient while we sorted this out – we’ll be reaching out via email shortly in case you have any questions” Team YouTube wrote.

Paul later added “Very unhappy to learn that @YouTube has also removed our Liberty Report episode with special guest @RobertKennedyJr – it was one of our most popular episodes. ”
