On Wednesday, YouTube announced that they would be silencing dissent to an even greater extent on their platform. The tech giant plans to censor anyone who questions official narratives, or “Sandy Hook Truthers” along with others.
(Anyone notice that “truth” is in “truthers?” Because YouTube didn’t.) Yesterday, some YouTube creators had started to notice their videos were being systematically deleted and their voices silenced.
“The things that are going to be blocked are not going to be fake stories. The things that are going to be blocked and censored, the things they are going to keep from people is going to be stuff they just don’t want you to focus on or know about.” – Melissa Dykes
Watch the below video before it’s taken down. Surely YouTube won’t like the truth in this one:
Ironically, YouTube is continuing down the path of totalitarian dictatorships by willingly silencing those who offer an opposing opinion or point of view. And this time, it all stems from a Vox journalist who is a big fan of silencing those who disagree with him. His target was Steven Crowder, but thousands of others will also be silenced.
In the wake of this personal vendetta between two individuals, YouTube has taken to mass censorship of everyone. Here is how it all began:
Just when one thinks social media and tech giants can’t possibly get any worse when it comes to regulating speech, they announce the removal of thousands of videos that they don’t like over a squabble between two guys. Look, I personally don’t subscribe to the flat earth theory, but I’d never tell a person to sit down, shut up, and never speak about it again. Honestly, who cares what others say? Words can’t physically hurt anyone. YouTube and Vox for that matter, is simply proving once again, that they fear what these creators have to say.
“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.” –George RR Martin
According to The New York Times, the new policy will ban “videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion,” the company said in a blog post. The prohibition will also cover videos denying that violent events, like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, took place.
We will begin enforcing this updated policy today; however, it will take time for our systems to fully ramp up and we’ll be gradually expanding coverage over the next several months. -YouTube blog post
We all knew that the censorship would be ramped up sooner or later. There are just not enough people left to fall in line with globalist and authoritarian ideals anymore without it.
“…the Nazi party was being condemned by much of the world for burning books, they were already hard at work perpetrating an even greater literary crime.” – The Book Thieves: The Nazi Looting of Europe’s Libraries and the Race to Return a Literary Inheritance
Sadly and quite horrifically, the difference between the Nazi book burning of the past and the technology giants censorship of today is support. People all over the globe condemned the censorship of the Nazi’s, while today, people are pushing for others to be silenced. We live in a disturbing time in history, for certain.
Steven Crowder will be punished in some way, as it’s clear YouTube has sided against him. Crowder has millions of subscribers and offers conservative merchandise on Amazon.
I understand that you wanted to make money off it.
I felt that lots of people couldn’t finish their gradeschool science experiments, or retarded ‘life hacks’, or handcrafts, or show their work, or corroborate any of their claims — especially, not in a presentable quality.
If you download apps, that interfere with their annoying commercials, this service might be useful, to catch up on satellite tv, that you missed during the 80’s.
I think that a free marketplace of ideas is like any other gift economy, where there are 999 takers for every producer. And, if you want something worthwhile, there will probably have to be some kind of wall put around it — based on my understanding of human nature.
Quality channels are relatively rare but deserving of dignity, imo. I don’t think they should be begging big govt and whoring for clicks.
Today YouTube, tomorrow, your web sites.
They will not stop until no one can question their lies, dogmas, and narratives. marxists think they have the right to own your very mind.
Make no mistake, they have total control over the ways we communicate, the real nightmares will begin. Then, it will be way too late to try and stop them.
F#$% youtube! Everyone go to patreon.com and you’ll find videos that youtube removed previously and there’s NO censorship at patreon.com.
Good to see you’re back. We are going to have to support monetarily certain content creators so that they still have a voice. I resolve to pick one or two channels to contribute something towards. Every little bit helps right!
Time to cut these companies out. there are other platforms….
Jim in Va., I would expand the list of enemies of America, President Trump recently indicated, to include certain companies that are really extensions of the state.
Why does everyone use Nazies to compare atrocities. Why not the Bolsheviks.
There was much harsher censorship under the communist party. The commissars were never tried for their crimes.
Train loads of innocents died on trains destined to the remote subzero
climate prison for truthers under Communism.
Because the Bolsheviks produced the news and wrote the history. DuckDuckGo New York Times and Walter Durante to illustrate your point about what the Bolsheviks did, and why it wasn’t reported.
Part of Fabian strategy was to infiltrate the news media, and to get into the education system. It works.
Duranty, spell check made it e.
The royal tyrants would never do any such things, because they were Catholic.
Rasputin = luv
The Nazis burned books (written by leftist Jews) that pushed transsexualism, pornography and pedo. You really want to go here?
I would really like to see Youtube ban rubbish cat videos, rubbish teenage prank videos, and the rubbish ‘cult of personality’ look at me type videos that seem so loved by millions of brain dead or brain dying.
But to be honest I will be hapy to see the banning of all the ‘fake’ and newer ‘jump on the patreon donation bandwagon’ channels who chase subscribers and always seek ‘Support’ or a Patreon account ‘donation’.
I have seen many great Youtubers walk away from Youtube in recent years because they cant get any viewers because their subject matter is not sensational enough, or they dont do the cult of personality and self promotion skills required to bait clicks, or they dont sell out to sponsors, or try and hawk some product or investment.
There were some truely great truth tellers on youtube years ago, maybe some are still there, but just cant be found behind all the self promoters and sensationalists.
Let some of the channels that make so called videos just for money get culled. If they are the real deal they will come back telling the truth with another channel the next day. If money and fame was always thier goal then good ridance.
Youtube was great, still is in some ways, but at the end of the day it is a private google owned platform which they are free to do with as they please.
“…will ban “videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion…”
And we all know who that (((group))) is don’t we? The ones you are not permitted to talk about are the ones in charge.
I do believe the administrator of this blog also censors when it comes to this group. Why is it OK for this blog to censor, yet the administrator complains about Youtube doing the same thing?
Sure is a good thing that Trump set out that mailbox asking for people’s experiences on this front.
Can you say “public utility”?
Just answer the legitimate questions about the Sandy Hook alleged shooting instead of covering up valid evidence that has been provided that the official story is bogus. The Las Vegas incident and others also.
