Last night I spoke out in opposition to forced masking in the Wachusett Public Schools at our School Committee meeting. It went quite well and the emojis were flowing heavily on the Holden Television live stream on Facebook.
I uploaded a clip from my speech to our YouTube account and began to write a blog about the meeting, but while I was writing it the video of my speech was removed by YouTube for “medical disinformation,” that “contradicts World Health Organization or local health authorities medical information about COVID-19, including methods to prevent, treat, or diagnose COVID-19 and means of transmission of COVID-19.”
Because we must never offer alternative viewpoints from the WHO, which has been wrong more times than I can count throughout this pandemic. We received a strike and cannot stream on our YouTube channel for a week.
The YouTube Superchat function is a revenue stream for Turtleboy which is now taken away from us. For that reason tonight’s Live Show will have to be broadcasted on my Facebook page, Clarence Woods Emerson. If you’re not already doing so please follow the Clarence account on Facebook by clicking here and tune in tonight at 9 PM so I can talk about this Orwellian action by an unregulated tech monopoly. Since the Superchat donation function won’t exist on Facebook you can send donos to my Cashapp $UncleTurtleboy (since I’m banned from PayPal and Venmo). The best way to fight tech censorship is to support dissenting voices like mine.
No one elected Susan Wojcicki or anyone else at Google or YouTube to anything, and she has no medical background in anything. This was a public School Committee meeting that was required by law to be broadcasted and available to the world. Even if something I said was untrue (which it was not), so what? Since when did it become Susan Wojcicki’s job to decide what was true, and what could not be heard by people on the third most trafficked website in the world? Human beings have a right to decide for themselves what to believe. BLM spreads misinformation regularly that has resulted in widespread looting, rioting, and distrust in law enforcement. YouTube thinks it’s OK to question institutions like the police, just not institutions like the WHO.
For the record, nothing I said in the speech contradicted anything the WHO has ever said, nor did I spread medical disinformation. The speech was about the dangers of demonizing other members of our community as disease infested parasites, and I cited CDC and Holden Board of Health data to show how safe our town is. See for yourself in the video, which I transcribed below.
My name is Aidan Kearney and I’m a parent of two children who’s concerned that we’re actually debating turning our schools into virtual leper colonies by forcing muzzles on 5 year olds.
The grossest thing I heard at the hearing last Wednesday night was the “othering” that one of the emailers did when she said that she wanted to attend, but there would be too many maskless, unvaccinated people there. The people sitting in this crowd tonight without masks on are members of the community, being openly treated like disease infested parasites for our beliefs by the the people who would force masks on our children. We are blamed for being the sole cause of our country’s problems, and a threat to other people’s children.
This sort of dehumanization is how every authoritarian genocidal regime in world history has always begun. Ask the Chinese, Cuban, or Russian landowners who were skapegoated by communist revolutionaries, the Japanese-Americans who were thrown into Internment camps because they made white Americans feel “unsafe” to be around, or the Tutsis in Rwanda who were called “cockroaches” before being massacred.
All of these began with the kind of language I heard from emailers at the last meeting. I just heard language from one of the members about being afraid of people in the audience. I promise, we don’t bite. Step 1 is ALWAYS to present a minority of the population as a threat to the health and survival of the rest of the population.
At the July School Committee meeting one member on this committee wore a mask. Three weeks later 12 of you did. And why? Because cases are up in Florida? Well this isn’t Florida. We’re averaging over 1,000 new COVID cases a day in Massachusetts and under 5 deaths. Could that possibly be because we have one of the highest vaccination rates in the country? Maybe, just maybe your vaccine actually works and can help you survive if you contract the virus.
I have more good news, you’re living in one of the most vaccinated communities on planet Earth! Over 80% of Holden is vaccinated, including 95% of kids age 16-19.
And I have great news for kids under 12 who can’t get vaccinated – COVID was NEVER a threat to you to begin with! A grand total of ZERO children have died in Massachusetts from the virus. And yet all I hear from our elected leaders is fearmongering about dead kids. It’s gross, irresponsible, and reckless.
Do you have any idea the psychological damage you’re doing to kids, or do you just not care? You’re willing to smother their faces in disgusting, bacteria ridden cloth masks that they wear for 7 hours in their classrooms, in order to protect them from a virus that has not killed a single one of them in Massachusetts.
I’m sick and tired of hearing how resilient our children are as an excuse to continue to abuse them. And that’s exactly what masking is – child abuse. Just because your child is too polite and well-mannered to tell their teacher they don’t wanna wear their mask, doesn’t mean they aren’t having trouble breathing or communicating. My daughter shouldn’t have to be “resilient” so that a bunch of vaccinated adults suffering from hypochondria, playing Simon Says with Dr. Fauci, can feel more “safe.”
Here is the data to back up my facts, showing over 1,000 new cases a day in Massachusetts, with under 5 deaths per day, and Holden Board of Health data showing our high vaccination rates in town.
Although I disagree with their rules banning people from discrediting the vaccine or suggesting alternative ways to treat COVID, I didn’t actually do any of those things. I cited data from my town, urged people to treat others with respect, and advocated for my 6 year old daughter. I apologize for nothing, and I’ll do it again in a heartbeat.
For those who would suggest that YouTube should be allowed to censor whoever they want because they are a private company, let’s not forget that they are doing this at the behest of the federal government.

When the President tells a private company that they must censor you, and then that company censors you, that company officially becomes an arm of the government. Joe Biden’s administration knows the First Amendment prevents them from censoring you, which is why they have “private” tech companies do their censoring for them.
If you voted for Joe Biden then you support this. You voted for an authoritarian regime that has not only endorsed this sort of censorship, but used public office to cajole these tech companies to outright ban videos like my speech. You can’t support this administration and what they’re doing, while also pretending to support Turtleboy.
Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonetization.
