SHTFPlan’s Mac Slavo Comment: This is chilling. More subtle than other forms of censorship, this Google/YouTube policy is stripping away the honest debate about some of the most important and controversial topics that are going on in our world. How can people not be allowed to discuss – or especially to criticize – the failed and flawed policies that are dragging us to war?

 

How can it be OK for Secretaries of State and Presidents to fund ISIS and cut deals with human right violators, but not OK for YouTubers to criticize it? By cutting advertising, the mega-platform hopes that no one will dare to discuss these things, and make no mistake, it will be selectively enforced. While individuals are free to go elsewhere, this platform, like a handful of others, has dominated that vast majority of web traffic, and drive the audiences that one would hope to reach with a video. If critics and dissidents are exiled and shunned from here, where will they be free to redress their grievances and call out hypocrisy and lies?

YouTube Declares War on Politically Incorrect Opinions

by Paul Joseph Watson

A new “advertiser friendly” policy introduced by YouTube will punish those who express politically incorrect opinions or dare to offend viewers by de-monetizing their content.

The new rules have sparked an outcry from the YouTube community because they are so incredibly restrictive.

YouTube will now retain the right to demonetize any videos that contain, “Controversial or sensitive subjects and events, including subjects related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and tragedies, even if graphic imagery is not shown.”

“Inappropriate language, including harassment, profanity and vulgar language,” is also being demonetized.

YouTube’s new policy will completely disincentivize YouTubers from discussing politically incorrect topics or expressing controversial opinions because they know they will be punished for doing so. Many YouTubers make a living off their channel and will therefore be walking on eggshells to avoid the company’s stringent new rules.

The new policy bears some hallmarks of the Communist Chinese government’s “social credit score system,” whereby Internet users are punished by private companies and their peers for expressing unpopular views on social media.

The move is primarily designed to scare away YouTubers from making anti-establishment political content, but prominent YouTubers are already reporting that videos on everything from acne solutions to tips on combating depression are being demonetized because they are not “advertiser friendly”.

“The channels that self-identify as vulnerable by these advertising guidelines seem to be news channels covering sensitive real-world topics,”reports Kotaku.

Prominent YouTuber Philip DeFranco responded to the controversy by vowing, “I’m not going to censor myself,” despite the fact that dozens of his videos have already been demonetized.

Google-owned YouTube is of course a private company and can enforce any rules it likes, but with the advent of such corporations becoming so large (more powerful than countries in some cases), in addition to them insisting on being treated as a public utility, the move is a massive stab in the back for the content creators who helped build the platform in the first place.

As Matt Drudge warned about when he appeared on the Alex Jones Show nearly a year ago, creators allowing their content to be swallowed up by social media ghettos was always going to lead to this outcome.

“I don’t know why they’ve been successful in pushing everybody into these little ghettos, these Facebooks, these Tweets, these Instagrams,” Drudge told Jones. “This is ghetto, this is corporate; they’re taking your energy and you’re getting nothing in return.”

The video below sums up the impact the new rules will have on YouTube unless they are reversed.

while its still watchable. this is definitely a make up your own mind type of thing after seeing the facts.The Greatest Story Never Told:- winner's write history, Adolf Hitler was actually a vegetarian, animal-lover, an author, an artist, a political activist, economic reformer and nominated for a Nobel Peace prize. He enacted the world's first anti-animal cruelty, anti-pollution, and anti-smoking laws. Unlike the demonic portrait that the "allies" painted of him, Hitler was beloved by his people, he wanted nothing but peace, and never ordered the extermination of a single Jew. The largely Jewish-controlled mainstream media has ever since painted an evil picture of Hitler and the Jew World Order has even enacted laws in 16 European countries prohibiting free-speech on the issues of Judaism, Hitler and the Holocaust.

Again, it needs to be pointed out (the MSM certainly won't tell you)...

That the most frequent visitor to the Obozo White House over the past 8 years has been...

The CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt...

And did I mention that Google owns YouTube?

NidStyles's picture

This has been going on for over three years already.

 

Any accounts promoting anything other than the "official narrative" about WW2 is always under threat of getting shut down. Any channel that mentions the Jews in a negative light is typically under threat as well.

He's one of the best and, funniest falseflag-hoax exposers in the World.

He ain't perfect, but pretty damn close on most things & he needs your support.

His channel was recently taken down by izraeli mozzad agent "Dickless" Gutjahr, after Peekay exposed him!!!

"Dickless" Richard Gutjahr is the so-called german reporter who, just happened to be FILMING both the recent Münich Germany & Nice France *terrorist attacks*.....only a few days apart.

A coincidence?

The probability of that is 1 in billions!!!

Anyway, Peekay got his channel back by filing complaints.

Hitler had captivating blue eyes as well, who knew?

The free market says we should ditch YouTube and find a new venue. What will be chilling is when they don't allow YouTube to have competitors.

I posted a short personal video about 10 months ago on the how the US is responsible for the creation of ISIS...I am prohibited from monetizing that video...no bullshit.

Temple of Truth's picture

You can't have any words in the title, description or keywords containing "ISIS, zionism, terrorism, muslim extremist, islamic terrorist, jewish lobby" or similar. They will automatically flag your content and you'll be unable to monetize that video. If you hide these words in your new videos they will be monetized even if the content is about those things. That's what we're doing in our new videos.

You have some great points. Lose the "Hitler" hero stuff. Face it, no excuse for the guy. Period.

It's pretty clear to us goyim that-like any parasite/predator-Jews need to be quarantined. How?

Play on their obsession with the white race. They're the ones who take our names and pretend to be Christians, thoughtful agnostics or Bhuddists, hiding behind names like DiCaprio, Johansson, and Douglas. They bleach their hair blond, fix their hooked noses so they can look white. They try to use whites as scapegoats, but stab them in the back through their hidden identity. Such is the strength of the diaspora.

So, I say white goyim males need to stop procreating with Jewish princes. Let Jewesses procreate with blacks and browns. Donald Sterling revealed how racists Jews are against blacks. He said that Ethiopian Jews are looked down upon. Chosen race? Opt out of it.

Jewish men can procreate with all the white females all they like. Heredity is passed down from the female. They can't stand their own JAP women.
Just a suggestion. Better than pitch forks and torches I must say.

Hitler was of course a progressive in the fine tradition of progressives, and yes the huge overlap between progressive politics and Nazi ones has been obscured by our media and schools.  Fascism arose from the left in Italy and Germany alike.   Communism rose from the left and murdered even more and caused a magnitude more misery but it gets a pass in favor of making Hitler the incomparable evil to which nothing can be compared because Hitler!!!   Sorry.  All progressivism is anti-human, and not just by practical results, but by intention.   

Four chan's picture

we were all taught that ww2 happened for no reason besides hitler was a dick. it happened for a reason! and the longer i live the more i see the reasons and can only come to two conclusions, 1 HITLER HAD A POINT 2 THE JEWS GOT US TO MURDER MILLIONS OF GERMANS FOR THEIR FINANCIAL BENIFIT AS USUAL. 

NidStyles's picture

Nazism was about as Progressive as the King's of old.

 

Pregressivism is about removing power from individuals. Nazism puts it back in the hand's of those willing to use it for the nation.

The Borwnshirts were born out of the ranks of the Communists, whom were disenfranchised German Vets. Germany had been overrun by Communists after the end of WWI. They simply walked over the border and started living it up in Germany like they owned the place. The Nazi revolt was a natural reaction to thise invasion.

 

Every oppositional group to the commmunists in history has taken on a fascist flair. Every oppositional group to invasions of people into Europe have done the same thing. Fascism is a reaction to invasion.

TBT or not TBT's picture

Nationalism is a reaction to invasion.   Fascism was nationalist socialism, which differs from internationalist socialism in only the one fundamental way.   In both cases an elite gains arbitatry individual powers to boss others around by overt force of arms and by bureaucratic power too, in the fine tradition of progressive zealotry and leftist elite power grabbing everywhere.  

Lea's picture

Just goes to show that a seriously deranged bloke who was only the third German to attack the whole of Europe for no sensible reason (check the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 ("Prussian" means "German"), WW1 and WW2) and to kill millions could at the same time be a prude. Nothing new here. Holier-than-you sorts that string together long "inspirational" speeches about liberty, human rights and grandiose ideals show themselves to be murderous cretins everyday (just look at your own Beltway).
On a side note: Hitler was a bit less of a hypocrite since he never spoke about human rights, only "animal rights".

Of course, to any vegetarian, non-smoker and animal lover, the fact Hitler was responsible for 25 million dead Soviet civilians and a grand total of 60 million human casualties should be irrelevant.

BTW, a Great Story Seldom Told (but that one is true) is that the US troops were crap at fighting the Nazis. To stimulate them into some sort of action, they were told baloney about the French women being easy-going on matters of sex so, if they killed Germans, they would get "a reward". Which, as it was not true, led to a record number of rapes of French women by US troops. There are plenty of very informative articles on the Internet. Find for instance "D-Day GIs 'raped and killed their French allies while US army generals turned a blind eye'".
The GIs found it difficult to fight the Nazis because, due to the Jim Crow laws they had at home, they more or less agreed with the Nazi racial doctrine. And as you show with your comment, it's the same today.

 

NidStyles's picture

The majority of US American stock is German. Why would we not agree with our racial cousins?

Your obvious disregard of history proves your bias. Hitler didn't declare war, he sued for peace 100's of times. The Jews declared war on him in 1933. England in 1939. Poland before them.

 

 

"Prussian" doesn't mean German either. It was a branched made up country that incorporated the East Slavic Germans with the Western Saxon Germans. It wasn't a real thing, it was made up by the Empire.

Not surprised that person that blames Hitler for WWII doesn't even know any history about the continent prior. That is very typical of you ignoramuses.

In the late '30's the US Army size wise was 10th in the world. In 7 years it straddled the world, while Arming with its arms British, Soviet, French and Chinese Armies and Air Forces. Along with its Allies it accomplished the worlds most largest and complex landing on supposed superior and ready German military. And in 7 months through one of Europe's worst winters, was at Berlin, that which at horrific waste of soles took the Soviets 4 years.

By and large the US Army, then( since the Revolution) and today, doesn't pay much defference to kills and perfers to more efficiently dismantle by power and skill an enemy's fighting power.

You are factually incorrect, and ignorent.

It takes balls to say that, one thing I dont like about Adolf is why the fuck did he invade Poland? Granted it was German teritory pre ww1.

Back on topic, youtube is owned by teh (((Goodgles))), which is owned by Alphabet.... now "who" owns Alphabet?

NidStyles's picture

Two reasons, which he did speak about at great length.

 

1) It wasn't an invasion, the territory taken was Germany prior to the end of WWI. He reconquered it.

 

2) The Poles were raping, murdering families and burning their men alive. Poland would not allow him to take in the Ethnic Germans, they even said it would be an act of war to do so.

look the jews have locked up all media and banking and their directive is to enslave the nation steal its assets and control all messages so only the fuckbook jewtube and jewgle meme can be voiced. its the communist threat mccarthy warned us about and its here.  on a side note the holocaust was a hoax and hitler did nothing wrong, i said it while i still can. the end of we the people and our republic is at hand thanks to the pathological jew. and you better vote for hillary soros's candidate and arch criminal.

Furthermore, NOTE TO ALL ADVERTISERS:  Your little pop-up banners and commercials make me want to smash something.  SO ABSOLUUTELY, GO AHEAD AND KEEP SHOVING YOUR BLASTED CORPORATE LOGO IN MY FACE, BECAUSE IT IS NOT SELLING YOUR SHIT PRODUCT, YOU STUPID, PATHETIC PIECE OF SHIT. 

LET THE MARKET SPEAK!  SUPPORT GOOD INDEPENDENT SITES SO THEY DON'T FALL PREY TO THIS BIG-BROTHER BULLSHIT.  Controlled social media will go the way of newspapers and radio stations.

Cooperation between government and favored corporations is not an invention of the Jews.  

Uncle Fraud has an agenda and that is to brainwash America into accepting it via the media.  The media is a tool of Uncle Fraud, nothing more, nothing less.  

Sick and tired that the Jews are responsible for tools.  What utter bullshit.  

Examples of Uncle Fraud agenda which is broadcast by the media is "guns are bad", "unlimited immigration is good", "global warming" and I'm quite certain you can figure out a few more.  Anybody who thinks that its the JEWS that want Hitlery elected is demented.  But that also happens to be a primary agenda being spewed by MSM right now.

Why is there only one YouTube?

What do you need?  A computer.  A big hard drive.  A little bit of code.  A web address.  And people need to know it exists.

And if you are disseminating information, perhaps a good "Download" button on your web page to make it easy for others to spread that information without you.

WHY do we need YouTube?
WHY is there only one YouTube???

And while we're at it, why on earth do we outsource someone else to handle our emails?
Computers are cheap. Big hard drives are cheap.  UPSs are cheap.  What am I missing?

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

I think the rest of the sites don't have as large a legal team, so they just get sued or threatened with lawsuit, and then comply.  Which restricts their content a lot (who said you have to be the legal copyright owner to threaten a lawsuit, amirite?)

There are alternatives, Vimeo springs to mind. Haven't used any of them, or YouTube for that matter though.

 

http://www.thetoptens.com/best-alternatives-youtube/

 

If people started shadow uploading to Vimeo as well as YouTube (would still likely need to have the YouTube content due to the sheer number of users), then they could use imbedded links to the Vimeo videos, rather than YouTube.... vote with your feet.

shining one's picture

There are others. Liveleak is one. With less restrictions on content too.

1033eruth's picture

I tell you why.  During the shakeout of this nitch of the internet (posting and sharing of videos), youtube won the popularity contest.

Just like Google won the popularity contest for search engines and ebay won the popularity contest for online auction format.  

The popularity of a specific website CROWDED out the others.  There was a HUGE fight in the beginning for online auctions but sellers found out that if they wanted to sell their stuff, ebay was the GO TO online auction site.  In the war of competition, that's how you have the LAST WEBSITE (for that niche) standing.  

Now then, since youtube is no more than a face for Uncle Fraud, there is room for more competition.  If others can capitalize on it, more and more will switch.  But for now, the world hardly/barely knows about youtube's government cooperation.   Same for facebook since the bulk of America has been converted to zombism.

Two things you need to know. #1 YouTube is a Google company. #2 Google is a CIA company. It's not the free market, level playing field you are depicting. The corporate run government is picking winners.
