Video Of EPA Chief Talking About Crucifying Businesses Taken Down By Liberal Group


The liberal group which posted that now-infamous video of an EPA official talking about “crucifying” those the agency regulates has now taken the video down from their YouTube channel and filed a complaint against Senator Jim Inhofe, whose staffers were the first ones to notice the video.

The YouTube channel where Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe’s office originally discovered the video of EPA official Al Armendariz speak about his “crucify them” enforcement philosophy has scrubbed the original video and lodged a complaint against Inhofe to YouTube.

The source and now YouTube complainant, David McFatridge of “Citizen Media for We The People,” is an environmentalist and, according to Inhofe’s office, has eliminated all content related to Armendariz’s speech from his YouTube channel.

The original video now turns of an error notice that reads: “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by David McFatridge.”

McFatridge’s complaint comes despite the fact that his page reads, “Consider ALL video Creative Commons Attribution license (reuse allowed)”.

Why do people put video on YouTube if they don’t want other people to see it?

This sounds remarkably similar to what Democrats are doing here in North Dakota, filing copyright claims to get video of Heidi Heitkamp praising Barack Obama taken offline so that people wont’ see it.

I guess liberals/Democrats are afraid of the general public seeing and hearing what they really think.

Anyway, the original video is still available courtesy of the Media Research Center:
