Rumble Could Be Banned In UK Under New Online Safety Laws

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Rumble, the free-speech video hosting website could be banned in the UK under new online safety laws. As reported here a couple of days ago, the Online Safety Bill was approved by the House of Lords on the 19th of September but still needs official approval from the King before it can become law. This has not deterred the government from trying to coax platforms such as YouTube, to ban Russell Brand due to allegations of historical abuse.

Again as we reported last week, while YouTube dutifully obeyed, Rumble stayed true to their mission and responded “Although it may be politically and socially easier to join the cancel culture mob, doing so would be a violation of our companies values and mission. and finished with “We emphatically reject the UK Parliament’s demands.”

Unfortunately, now “experts” have said that Rumble, which hosts Russell Brand, could be blocked in the UK because of the Online Safety Bill.

Rumble’s response to the government last week.

According to The Times: “Rumble, a video-sharing platform based in North America, has become home to Brand and other figures with extreme views, including Andrew Tate and Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist.

It also hosts extreme videos on race and antisemitism that mainstream platforms such as YouTube have made more of an effort to take down.

Rumble has been thrust into the spotlight after Brand used it to declare his innocence of sexual assault claims.

Under the Online Safety Bill, which is due to become law next month, Rumble will be regulated by Ofcom because it is accessible in the UK.

Brand has recognised the impact the new law could have. In a statement on Friday, he said: “The British government has asked big tech platforms to censor our online content. [This] bill . . . is a piece of UK legislation that grants sweeping surveillance and censorship powers.”

Under the new law, Rumble will have to prevent children from seeing pornography and material that promotes self-harm, suicide, or eating disorders. Violent content and material harmful to health, such as vaccine misinformation, will also have to be kept from children.

Ofcom will also draw up new guidelines on violence against women and girls that will have to be adhered to.

Rumble will also have to take down material that is illegal, such as videos that incite violence or race hate.

All these obligations will be hard for Rumble’s management to stomach, according to Lord Allan of Hallam, a former Facebook executive who has advised on the bill.

“You can’t get out of this by saying ‘I’m a crazy American platform, that’s not ok’ and that somehow you get a free pass. They don’t get a free pass,” he said. “Their whole philosophy is freedom of expression . . . a kind of ‘screw you’. So when they get a letter from Ofcom saying, ‘Here are all the things you’re going to have to do’, it seems to me the most likely reaction is going to be they’re going to say, ‘Well, we won’t operate in the UK any more.’ ”

Noncooperation could leave Rumble executives open to arrest if they came to Britain, as the bill provides for senior managers to be held criminally liable.

Professor Lorna Woods, an internet law expert who was one of the architects of the bill, said Ofcom had the ability to disrupt or block Rumble if it did not comply.

“In theory Ofcom will engage with them, and say, ‘You’re not complying with rules’, and Rumble will grandstand before the press, as we’ve seen, and try to ignore what Ofcom does,” she said.

Rumble’s defiance was evident in a row with Dame Caroline Dineage, chairwoman of the culture, media and sport select committee, on Thursday.

She asked whether the video site, on which Brand has 1.4 million followers, would join YouTube in “suspending Brand’s ability to earn money”.

Chris Pavlovski, Rumble’s chief executive, posted an open letter on Twitter/X in response that said: “Today we received an extremely disturbing letter from a committee chair in the UK parliament.”

He noted that none of the allegations against Brand related to content on Rumble, adding: “We regard it as deeply inappropriate and dangerous that the UK parliament would attempt to control who is allowed to speak on our platform or to earn a living.”

He concluded: “[Joining] a cancel culture mob . . . would be a violation of our company’s values and mission. We emphatically reject the UK parliament’s demands.” Source

The UK is a Fledgling Dictatorship

This issue goes beyond Russell Brand, Andrew Tate, or any individual who dares to voice their opposition to the WEF, WHO, or government agendas. It’s no longer solely about preserving freedom of speech or expression. Instead, it’s about depriving us of our ability to independently think, critically assess information, and draw our own conclusions.

A small group of individuals holds absolute and centralised authority over our society. Unless you are an individual who is feeling all warm and fuzzy believing that they are doing it for our own good and are happy to think what they tell you to think, then you will have already felt the effects of the suppression of our opposing views and restrictions of our civil liberties.

There is now next to no political pluralism in the UK, no political opposition or meaningful competition, just red Tories, and blue Tories all appeasing the WEF.

There are no checks and balances usually necessary in a democratic society, so, I guess this means we have now slid into a dictatorship after months of government preparing us. Although there are some of us who have arrived at this point kicking and screaming about it all the way here, the rest of the people in the UK are still blissfully unaware or simply do not care because they don’t like Brand anyway.

These song words are stuck in my head! Your Freedom’s Been Sold, Take Back Control, Or Your Future Dissolves.

They tell too much truth! WEF, NWO, Rothchilds, Obama cartel, etc. cannot tolerate truth.

Yup! And the truth is starting to break through in a waterfall! At first, it seeped here and there out from behind the jagged rocks of lies. But the leak grew and the truth was coming out more and more and in one more ‘moment, it will break through completely from the rocks and gush out. They cannot stop it any longer at that point.

In the end these criminal morons in parliament will ferment a bloody revolution as all dictators always do, especially the stupid ones.

In the meantime people should use a VPN so that they can access content from anywhere in the world and there’s sweet FA Ofcom or their political masters can do about i.

So you’re threatening violence and you wonder why society deems your content dangerous? Just so you are aware, your “revolution” would be a handful of far-right terrorists attacking innocents then getting taken down by the authorities and the public. You do not speak for anything close to a majority of the people.

A handful of far right sociopaths does not a revolution make. They will have to face the public and the police indeed. However they have their old enemies to consider too, the hard left. The anarchists, the socialists, the communists and their modern allies, the progressive and equality groups/movements, plus of course, other more theocratic factions. It’s going to be a lot of work for the far right to realize their demented and disturbing fantasies.

I haven’t felt the need for VPN yet – but living in Australia – it won’t be long before they follow suit. When they ban Substack and Rumble it will be too late. Set up your VPN now. (this is a note to myself as well)

Do you have a drivers license? Passport? Bank account? Credit/debit cards? The NAME’s on ALL those instruments are legal fictions (Corporate). By your own admission through ignorance, you claim yourself as a Corporation. Therefore, those Statutes and Acts apply. I cannot resist a snigger at the religious zealots who claim to be aligned with the Primal Creator.
Who was cast down into the Sea?
Who is the prince of the Air?
Everything in this realm is consent through contract.
What jurisdiction/s are those using/claiming the legal fiction NAME’s for themselves operating in through their own contractual consent?
By their own contractual agreement, those consenting to be the legal fiction NAME’s act in collusion with both Satan and Lucifer.
Those souls were sold/souled and claimed by a wo/man’s own consent.

Sites like rumble do this to themselves. They go out of their way to be hosts of vile hate content and misinformation then complain when people seek to have them shut down.

The thing is, you write this like you’re the representatives of the people fighting back against some over-the-top government crackdown but in reality normal people do not agree with you, because you’re supporting dangerous misinformation, incitement to violence, terrorist propaganda, and rapists.

It would be absolutely amazing if people were capable of self-moderating so that no oversight was needed. But you refuse, so your platforms get shut down as they cause direct harm to the public. You lot bring this on yourselves.

I guess now we’ll see how strong your convictions are, because if you truly believed in free speech, you’d not censor comments you disagree with. But let’s face it, we both know you’ll decline to approve this comment. That’ll kinda prove the point, that what you’re supporting is the spreading of hate, not freedom of speech.

The only people I see rioting, engaging in violence, spreading propaganda are the Socialists and Communists. That has always been their particular method of establishing control. They absolutely cannot tolerate hearing anything that disagrees with their “narrative.” Freedom means the choice of not exposing yourself to what you deem as harmful content. If you do its your own damn fault. True and unvarnished freedom of speech is both the good, bad and ugly. I think you had better get back to the books, because you seem to be quite confused. If knowing that Rumble does expose you to what you deem to be vile content, what are you or others like you doing on there. By the way, the word Misinformation, that you apparently have inculcated into your vocabulary is another perfectly good word adopted by the World Economic Forum and all their puppet governments to represent anything that disagrees with their narrative. Who the hell are these unelected people who think so much of themselves that they feel they can promulgate the truth and call all else “misinformation.” And the worse part of it is is that humans swallow it hook, line and sinker. No wonder they call us goyim (cattle).

Read the 25 Aims of the Illuminati: THEY WANT TO EXTERMINATE US, and Ted Gunderson on Rumble describes how they torture and rape children, making the mafia look gentle as he says.

THEY are the terrorists (WHO,WEF etc.) so surely a few idiots who can be moderated does not justify shutting down such a crucial truth channel.

I believe that you have no idea how evil the Illuminati are and have only scratched the surface of what they plan to do to us.

Nothing but censorship as good as any the Nazis or Stalin could do, all in the name of “protecting” you and/or your children. I for one, don’t want or need their bloody protection. We need protection FROM them. Funny how it correlates with “protection money” the Mafia would charge to keep their own thugs from attacking you. Don’t believe it, it is all a ruse to make it more palatable to you to accept cabal slavery. Run like hell if you see the words: easier, safer, more convenient, more secure, sustainable, inclusive, equity, fraternity, unity, brotherhood, diversity, etc. These are some of the catchwords of the global gangsters who think so much of themselves and see you as goyim (cattle to be used as pawns in their game to acquire all assets, resources, wealth and labor in their Luciferian pursuits.

The Online Safety Bill is truly tyrannical, and we should be marching on Parliament, as when a million gathered to protest the lockdown evil (although to no avail).

The Parliament unistate is complicit in an extermination plan (not depopulation) and punishing the whole population because of a tiny minority of criminals, the NWO cult aiming to destroy freedom forever.

The lib/lab/con/green/snp communo-fascists are puppets of the evil Illuminati: just hear Ted Gunderson on Rumble who are in the firing line because they tell the truth e.g. about the sinister electromagnetic devices found in the C19 vials.

All the globalist monsters and their collaborators should be burned at the stake, preferably in Parliament Square.

Im sure the WEF ‘king’ or Big Ears, as hes known in my house will be glad to ban rumble. Big ears can’t wait to depopulate. He is illuminati after all. Apparently hes as dumb as a bag of dog shit. That comes from an old historian who knew the twat years ago. Long live the king? Hoping he goes soon after mumsy.

Brand’s a wrong un. Rumble can suck it up, the Online safety Bill is essential to protect internet users. The alt right are unalloyed morons, conspiracy theorists are fantasists, anti vaxxers in particular should be allowed to refuse any and all medical treatment without censure or criticism, clearing out the terminally stupid, wont hurt the gene pool. All hail my bum cheeks. Simon out.

Pity Rumble wasn’t as vociferous when they were ordered to no longer have videos by Vernon Coleman, who is worth any number of Russell B’s (Imo, the latter is willing controlled fake opposition for distraction. He changed his views overnight, not gradually as everyone naturally does. He hasn’t been accused of the very worst, crimes against children. Being accused concerning women of or over the age of consent? He doesn’t seem to embarrass easily. I still remember the phone call to elderly Mr Sachs which was apparently live on air. He is ageing and one wonders of he wants to do yt forever. Maybe it suits him to retire with the amount of wealth he probably has, which no doubt will be added to if and when he is compensated. Mostly though, it is the astonishing speed with which he suddenly radically changed from what is now called left wing to what is considered the populist right wing speech. After all, he is a performer).

Apart from the above, I find it strange that the US doesn’t have to comply with any international organisation to which it belongs. For instance, the UN. Yet it cannot prevent the UK from passing a tyrannical law which would make one of it’s most important and popular online platforms (amongst other US platforms) impossible to view in the UK.

Excellent recent book “Their Terrifying Plan”. Author unmentionable on most searches and platforms. Today, I found one of his two websites, the one with many videos, is now unaccessible even on yandex. It wasn’t a few days ago. Mind, he might not have sent two of his books to the Covid Enquiry a few days ago. The timing seems a bit much of a coincidence. There is a recent article in the Expose reporting he sent two books in to the Enquiry.

Anyway, I am about halfway through the above named book, and thus far have learned more than I have ever learned from numerous books, Web articles etc.
It isn’t even a tome, nor expensive at all yet the information so far is the most extensive I have ever read (I have read q fair amount during my almost 70 years).
The author explains more than populist video channel owners on allowed, well promoted platforms ever explain in the same number of words (that includes RB and other soundbite enthusiasts).
