YouTube briefly removed video of an address on policing by author and Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald last week because it went against the narrative that police are "engaged in wanton racist violence against Black men," Mac Donald charged on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Wednesday.

"Facts are the dread of our our Silicon Valley oligarchs, facts which disprove their favorite narrative that America is endemically racist," Mac Donald said.

"No sooner had I finished the speech than Google wiped it off the Web on the grounds that it violated its community guidelines for keeping YouTube a safe space for all."
