Vimeo has removed Project Veritas’ account, following a damning exposé of Google and its alleged political bias against President Trump and Conservative voices. YouTube acted swiftly in removing the video from its site, following its upload on Monday, but the video was still available on Vimeo until around 4.30pm ET on Wednesday.
A tweet by Project Veritas said:
BREAKING @Vimeo has REMOVED Project Veritas saying: “You cannot upload videos that are hateful, defamatory, or discriminatory.” Perhaps we embarrassed @Google but NOTHING we said was hateful, defamatory, or discriminatory. They’re trying to erase us from the internet.
James O’Keefe, the journalist behind the exposé, has been accused of editing the undercover footage to portray Google’s Jen Gennai’s comments inaccurately, but the banning of Project Veritas from YouTube and now Vimeo illustrates that big tech suppression is in fact, in full effect.
BREAKING UPDATE: @Vimeo has BANNED our account days after @YouTube PULLED our video. They keep citing “privacy violations.” BEING EMBARRASSED BY LEGITIMATE INVESTIGATE JOURNALISM is not a “privacy violation.” Video STILL ON BITCHUTE.

Earlier today, during a US Homeland Security hearing, Rep. Dan Crenshaw grilled Google executive Derek Slater, Google Global Director of Information Policy, over a leaked email published earlier this week by Project Veritas. The emails apparently refer specifically to public figures Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson and Dennis Prager as Nazis, and the question is asked, “what do we do about it?”
