Do you remember when the Trump administration said it was going to “look into” doing something about social media censorship?
I’ve spoken to other conservative commentators, & they all confirm the same thing.— Lauren Chen (@TheLaurenChen) June 5, 2019
Since January, YouTube has refused to show our videos in recommends & searches.
They want to stop the “spread” of our ideas.
This isn’t a conspiracy, YouTube openly admits this is their policy. pic.twitter.com/U8YvEGiZUV
YouTube is free to curate content for its views based on ideology, of course, but if that’s the case, they can no longer claim to be a platform.— Lauren Chen (@TheLaurenChen) June 5, 2019
They are a publisher, and should be held legally accountable as such.
“YouTube announced plans on Wednesday to remove thousands of videos and channels that advocate for neo-Nazism, white supremacy and other bigoted ideologies in an attempt to clean up extremism and hate speech on its popular service.
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 incidents, like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, took place.
YouTube did not name any specific channels or videos that would be banned.
“It’s our responsibility to protect that, and prevent our platform from being used to incite hatred, harassment, discrimination and violence,” the company said in the blog post.
The decision by YouTube, which is owned by Google, is the latest action by a Silicon Valley company to stem the spread of hate speech and disinformation on its site. A month ago, Facebook evicted seven of its most controversial users, including Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist and founder of InfoWars. Twitter banned Mr. Jones last year. …”
The Occidental Dissent channel on YouTube was seemingly deleted simultaneously with the rollout of the new policy. I’m apparently at the top of the list:
“We’d like to inform you that due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines (https://www.youtube.com/t/community_guidelines) your YouTube account Hunter Wallace has been suspended.
After review we determined that activity in your account violated our Community Guidelines, which state that hate speech is not acceptable on our site. “Hate speech” means content that promotes hatred or violence against members of a protected group (race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).
Please be aware that you are prohibited from accessing, possessing or creating any other YouTube accounts. For more information about account terminations and how our Community Guidelines are enforced, please visit our Help Center.”
I’m a blogger.
I don’t even make YouTube videos.
There were only two videos on the Hunter Wallace account which were unedited livestreams of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. Apparently, it was necessary to purge the channel because of “repeated and severe violations” of the new Community Guidelines which prove that the mainstream media’s narrative of that event was completely false.
The truth is that I use YouTube solely to watch videos which are mainly historical documentaries, religion or philosophy or health and fitness related. 99% of the content that I watch and share on YouTube has nothing to do with White Nationalism or even with American politics.
Politically speaking, we’re now trapped in a hard place between 1.) progressives who are determined to force their “social justice” views on the public by abusing the market power of corporate monopolies to censor alternative perspectives and silence all dissent and 2.) the free market ideology of conservatives and lolbertarians which is content to turn a blind eye to this and reward it.
What have we gotten out of the Trump administration? Facebook, YouTube and Amazon got a massive corporate tax cut and record levels of legal immigration. We have been nearly wiped off the internet. I suppose we got Jerusalem and the end the Iran deal too.
Here’s the solution that I advocate:
1.) Register a new account on these social media giant platforms.
2.) Simply change what you talk about on your new account.
3.) Talk exclusively about the need to tax, regulate and trust bust the social media giants in Silicon Valley for they can be wiped out in the global marketplace in the 2020s by their Chinese competitors.
4.) Find and network with likeminded people to share this message.
Silicon Valley wants to change what we talk about on their platforms. If we change our behavior and talk about nothing on their platforms but the need to put an end to their wealth and power, you will be amazed at how fast they will change their tune on freedom of speech.
Note: This website has been banned from Stripe and PayPal and a bunch of other payment processors for similar reasons. It’s all part of the same coordinated effort by the Left to censor the internet by denying people on the enemies list access to social media accounts and banking service. It will have the effect of destroying the support of much of the Right for free-market capitalism.
Nah, they’ll just ban you again.
How long will it take you to figure out that they’re playing by the rules of power while you’re playing by the Marquess of Queensberry Rules with both hands and your nose tied behind your back by being “civilized” and “reasonable?”
You’re following exactly the same course as the cuckservatives, which has caused them to lose ever more spectacularly across the board for two generates.
Twp generations, that is.
I think we should sound civilized and reasonable especially at a time when our opponents are not. There is a huge swath of voters in this country who more or less agree with us and who are reacting against the extremism of the Left, but they can’t cross the bridge and join us mainly because the 1.0 and 2.0 movements are so extreme and driven by nostalgia.
If I was unreasonable, I would curate the comment section. Instead of doing that, I allow people to come here and say whatever they want so long as they don’t cross the line and do things which can get the site shutdown.
“I think we should sound civilized and reasonable especially at a time when our opponents are not”
Looking reasonable while the unhinged left rolled over them, is exactly what respectable conservatives did in the 1960s. Conservatives have no fight in them, and that is why they always lose.
I think a lot of people on the right don’t realize that most moderately conservative people – including many young people in their 20s and 30s, have no idea what’s going on regarding the purge of conservative and right-wing voices on YouTube, Twitter, etc. So taking a stand with a different approach will likely not make a difference – the people that you’re hoping will notice, are not watching and are oblivious.
The Marxist brainwashing in the schools has worked – I don’t just mean the Liberal bias, I’m talking about the lack of intellectual curiosity on the part of many otherwise reasonably intelligent people.
Most of us are “here” because we began to question what we knew about the world and wanted to find the truth. Unfortunately this is not the case with the vast majority of people – and I”m including the intelligent ones as well.
Spot-on analysis, Jim. Most people aren’t curious, and will only act when a crisis is right at their doorstep.
The sheer fury they are generating by all this is going to come back bite them bad. Something is going to happen, don’t know where or when. Probably from some direction they never figured. It may be new technology, maybe a politician finally gets a clue (yea, I know), etc. There are just too many talented determined people, and too much information to suppress. Also the constant suppression is now affecting people in the political middle too. Oogle is no different from any other Monopoly. It has weakness, and someone will find it soon. It’s also forcing, like Facebook is, everybody off who interesting to listen too. That is also looking long term dumb many people will just create new accounts, and Google will be playing wack a mole forever.. Google is huge, but clumsy. Many giant corporation s have come before, they all sooner or later fall. Google Ain’t no different
“The sheer fury they are generating by all this is going to come back bite them bad. Something is going to happen, don’t know where or when.”
The left have always generated fury by what they do. Its been going on for decades all over the West. As ever, the reactionaries will shake their fists at the clouds, then grumble and retreat.
Youtube and facebook are giving the middle finger to the 1st amendment. Free-speech hating swine is all they are.
I got same email. No more speech. The site is more important than ever. Whoiswhite.com
What was I just saying, about YT and fuzzy cat videos, Keto recipes, and other inane viewing material?
I must be like Daphne Moon on Frasier- “I’m a bit Psychic.” LOL
wow………………………………btw, RedIce still there, i’m surprised.
Here’s the answer, Brad:
At least you can try.
Bitchute is an alternative to youtube.
Ultimately we would be much better off with a Chinese competitor. Soon it will be more patriotic to use Chinese products than so-called American ones simply due to the fact the Chinese are less hostile to American citizens.
Vice president Bronald boomer Blumpf ‘don’t worry folks i’m monitoring censorship of conservatives trust the plan President Jared Kushner will save us’
I see that JewTube is upping its censorship. This is not good, unless it serves to awaken the sleeping masses to what is going on. As I argue in the 10th chapter of my little book *Rethinking The Propositions*, the corporations are a creature of the sate that chartered them, and are not the friend of the White man in 21st century America.
BTW, I have not been online in 48 hours, as I have been fighting a major rabbit attack on my garden, which almost destroyed my sweet potatoes. New fencing, new plants, more new plants after those were eaten, and finally ground cayenne pepper sprinkled on the leaves. i might have them under control now. Might.
