YouTube Goes On Rampage Against Conservative Accounts; Blames "Newer Members" Of Mod Team

YouTube has blamed "newer members" of it's 10,000 person fleet of content moderators for a virtual bloodbath of video takedowns, strikes, and account restrictions taking place across a large cross-section of conservative channels.

The Google division announced the new moderators in December, tasked with spotting said fake news, along with misleading or extreme content in the wake of a raging debate over the effect of propaganda and inaccurate reporting after Hillary Clinton's 2016 election loss. 

Google essentially responded to the crackdown on conservatives with "our bad," after news of the mass censorship began to spread. 

"As we work to hire rapidly and ramp up our policy enforcement teams throughout 2018, newer members may misapply some of our policies resulting in mistaken removals," wrote a YouTube spokesman in an email. "We’re continuing to enforce our existing policies regarding harmful and dangerous content, they have not changed. We’ll reinstate any videos that were removed in error."

Some of the banned accounts include:  

Anti-School, Bombard's Body LanguageCharltonCharles WaltonDefangoDustin NemosDavid SeamanDestroying The IllusionRon JohnsonRichie Allen, and Titus Frost.

Those who were issued strikes, partial bans, or temporary suspensions include According to Joe, Blackstone Intelligence, BakedAlaska, InfoWars, Jerome Corsi, Military Arms Channel, and MrLTavern, among many others. -The Outline

Over the last week, The Alex Jones channel was issued two strikes - however the second one was mysteriously removed hours later, maybe due to on overzealous "newer member" who disagreed with Infowars' politics. 

And last August, politically incorrect University of Toronto professor Jordan B. Peterson found himself locked out of his YouTube account with no explanation before regaining access.

Considering that there probably aren't a ton of red MAGA hats proudly displayed on top of cubicle cabinets in YouTube's San Bruno, CA headquarters or wherever their moderators decide the fate of content producers, it stands to reason that their fleet of eager new morality police - perhaps some of them having emitted primal screams upon Hillary's loss, simply went on a rampage against mean words and scary guns.

Meanwhile, the Daily Caller reveals that Google has also enlisted the left-wing nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to participate in its "trusted flaggers" program. The SPLC notoriously branded African American presidential candidate and neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson as an "extremist," while gaining a reputation for finding creative ways to label conservatives as "hate groups" in general. 

The Washington Examiner’s Emily Jashinsky noted last year that “the SPLC’s claim to objectivity is nothing less than fraudulent, a reality that informed observers of its practices from both the Left and Right accept.”

The routine of debunking their supposedly objective classifications occurs like clockwork each time a major outlet makes the mistake of turning to them when reporting on the many conservative thinkers and nonprofits the group absurdly designates as hateful.” -DC

YouTube says the trusted flaggers are equipped with digital tools which allow for the mass flagging of content for review by YouTube personnel. Moreover, the partner groups "act as guides to YouTube's content monitors," and engineers who develop algorithms to police more efficiently. 

“We work with over 100 organizations as part of our Trusted Flagger program and we value the expertise these organizations bring to flagging content for review. All trusted flaggers attend a YouTube training to learn about our policies and enforcement processes. Videos flagged by trusted flaggers are reviewed by YouTube content moderators according to YouTube’s Community Guidelines. Content flagged by trusted flaggers is not automatically removed or subject to any differential policies than content flagged from other users,” said a YouTube spokesperson.

Another "trusted flagger" partner is the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Originally organized to combat anti-Semitism, the ADL - with it's Soros-linked National director who last worked in the Obama admin, now spouts hyperbolic propaganda against conservatives, while failing to apply the same nebulous standards to the left. For example; their campaign to lump all Trump supporters in with white supremacists, while failing to mention far-left progressive organizations such as AntifaRedneck Revolt, and only called listed the anti-Semitic black nationalist hate group New Black Panthers (founded in 1989) after they were called out on it last year.

 

Gun control

YouTube's mass censorship comes at yet another critical inflection point in the nation's dialogue over gun control following the Parkland, FL shooting. While gun control advocates have been given a platform on major networks, gun rights activists have been muzzled  - primarily when their opinion has to do with 17-year-old Parkland survivor David Hogg along with several of his classmates who are anti Second Amendment. 

Hogg went on CNN and was allowed to call the NRA "child murderers," (a claim which CNN host Alisyn Camerota told spokeswoman Dana Loesch "I don't believe you" when it was pointed out), while conservative accounts suggesting Hogg is an actor, or that he was given lines to read for post-shooting interviews, are being censored by left leaning social media platforms. 

Many have noted that Parkland 16-year-old pro-gun Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv has yet to be verified by Twitter, while Hogg and several of his classmates who went on Ellen to advocate for gun control have all been given "blue checks" by the platform. 

YouTube also came under fire last week for promoting a clip of Hogg which fueled the "crisis actor" debate, featuring an exchange between Hogg and a Redondo Beach, CA lifeguard from 2017, in which the High School student places his boogie board on a trash can before getting in an altercation with the lifeguard.  

After the lifeguard scuffle briefly became YouTube's No. 1 trending video, it was removed under their harassment and bullying policy and apologized for helping to fuel the "crisis actor" theory.

YouTube's official policy states that "harmful or dangerous" and "hateful" content may violate its guidelines - and if video creators receive three strikes for violating the rules within three months, YouTube will terminate the account.

JewTube (Marxist Jew that is), owned by Google which was incubated by DARPA and is also run by Marxist Jews.  Facebook, again, incubated by DARPA, ran by Marxist Jews.

Put them all together and you have modern Soviet Stasi, plus a wonderful propaganda delivery method.

Do you believe 2+2=5?  Not yet?  Well maybe someday soon.  Afterall, how many genders are there?  Is the year 2018, or is it 1984? 

I knew Facebook was created by the Triangle Club when I saw Katie Couric pimping it on the morning national news (circa 2004ish).  She was not pimping Myspace, which was first, but Facebook.  Hmmm, that's odd....

This YouTube Censoring was done with Purpose, notice no extreme Leftist channels that openly call for the illegal immigration of people (against the law) were shutdown, it was only "right" leaning channels.  Youtube is so full of @#$@#  The only reason that they backed off was because there was push back and law suits filed.  They moved too soon.  Sorry but if you haven't violated copy rights or called for violence to be done to someone or a particular group and your channel is taken down then its purely politically motivated.  We either have free speech or we don't.

Jews this, Jews that.

Truth is that Jews are infiltrated by Edomite Jews (Khazar etc). Esau is Edom. Esau married Ishmael's daughter as 3rd wife.

Catholic countries are Edomites (Vatican/ Papacy). This is Spain, Italy, Mexico, South America. Edomites mixed with North African blacks. Ishmaelites (Arabs/Islam) mixed with various tribes, including Persians, Turks, Hindu, even in Asia (Malaysia, Bangladesh etc). These are hairy people, just as Esau was hairy.

It's team Lucifer v.s. God YHWH.

Jesus is truth. Satan is the father of lies and deception. Thus truther and Christian channels are shut down.

The modern interpretation of what you said is simply, Marxist/Communist/Bolshevik Jews.  They want to run the world and make everyone else their chattle.  Bascially, equality for all except them.  They will live in the ivory tower while the rest of the world lies in poverty.  It is written in the Talmud. I'm not anti-Semitic, but anti-corruption.  Problem is, you will usually find a "Jew" at the seat of corruption.  Boca Raton, home of the rat and also the latest false flag.  They want your guns, just like they did in the Bolshevik times.  How did that work out for the average citizen?

Ephesians 5:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

It's all about Satan in his attempt to steal God's place.

Satan tempted and Jesus rejected:

Matthew 4:9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."

Globalist Jews are a small part in the whole picture. Satan gave them and they readily accepted the earthly wealth and to rule the world. They delivered Jesus to the cross.

It goes further back:

Catholic (Esau) persecuted and tortured Christians. Diverting from Jesus.

Islam (Ishmael) wants to conquer the whole world for allah = Satan. Denying Jesus.

Both hate Jacob (Jews/Christianity/Israel).

And way further back, the other godless who followed Nimrod after Noah's death, like the Asians, example China who love their dragon and of course black Africans from Ham, as example South Africa who were already murdering white Christian farmers and now gear up to start the mass genocide.

The whole world is deceived by Satan. Jesus is the only way out.

I got two strikes for putting up the Alexa Miednik interview with Matt Musli of KHOU-TV, and the #HoggWash video of phony David Hogg rehearsing his lines for CNN.  It's complete bullshit; how is it "bullying" to show what a lying dweeb and celebrity-hound this pencil-necked man-gina is?

Please consider using the R.D. Steele hashtag #GoogleGestapo for these types of stories.  Time to hit them hard with a viral strike in the ongoing meme war.

It's sad to say, ZeroHedge is one of the only free speech sites left. Facebook took over the comment section of over 350,000 online publications. Facebook censors.

Youtube has lost a lot of it's appeal. It's policed so new content like movies are taken down fast. Youtube charges $2,$3.$4 and so on to watch old movies that aren't even classics and are no longer protected under copyright.

Youtube use to be an open platform for expression of all kinds, that's not the case anymore because posters know they will be censored. And many sites like SouthFront have been under Youtube threat because their content doesn't support Israel or a site has been targeted by MSM.

MSM is now going after alternative media on the internet, sites have been banned, comment sections taken over, and censorship of the internet is now our reality.

It's the end of the 1st amendment.

I'm not the techie one to do it, but we MUST develop our OWN internet resources and simply bypass Google, YouTube, FaceBook, etc...

I've been using DuckDuckGo whenever possible instead of Google...  I've never even seen a FaceBook page... and I only access YouTube when absolutely necessary.  Just like the NFL and all major newspapers... if we boycott these jewish censorship organs, they will eventually die on the vine.

The totalitarian tiptoe.  Let's see what they do, not what they say.  As if the cancellation of major libertarian and fact based, investigative accounts was decided on the grunt level.  Like saying the pfc's determine the current Afghanistan policy.  The libertarians responded to the demonetization of their subscriptions by funding them directly through Patreon, so ThemTube went to direct cancellation.  Two steps into feudalism, and one step back if forced to do so.

-"ADL Applauds Google and YouTube in Expanding Initiative to Fight Online Hate"
-New York, NY, August 1, 2017
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today welcomed progress announced by Google and YouTube in blocking and removing extremist content on YouTube. Google recently started using machine learning technology, which has allowed it to remove more than 75 percent of violent extremism videos during the past month.
ADL is a select contributing member of YouTube’s Trusted Flagger program, created in 2012 to enable organizations to notify the platform of content that violates their community guidelines. Google is a longstanding member of ADL’s Silicon Valley Anti-Cyberhate Working Group...

-Anti-Defamation League, tech firms team to fight online hate-

"Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft are among the companies joining forces with the advocacy group to curb cyberhate"
by Terry Collins
-October 10, 2017 11:12 AM PDT
Some of the biggest names in tech are partnering with the Anti-Defamation League to thwart online harassment.
Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft, among others, are joining with the ADL to form a Cyberhate Problem-Solving Lab, the companies and the civil rights group said Tuesday. They'll exchange ideas and develop strategies to try to curb hate speech and abuse on the companies' various platforms and across the internet...

Did YOU KNOW, the ADL was "founded in October 1913 by the Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, a Jewish service organization in the United States, its original mission statement was "to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people"..."

this flurry of "only stupid, mal adjusted people believe in conspiracy theories" publications would be of interest.

Given the blatant censorship taking place now at YouTube, Google, Facebook et al, it seems this is an attempt to provide "scientific" credence to rationalize the censorship.
Won't be long before acknowledging belief in CT's will earn you an all expense trip to
a Psikhushkas  for some mind reconditioning.

Conspiracy thinking less likely with greater news media literacy, study suggests: If you swallow the crap we dish up, you do not have to worry about reality.

Negative childhood experiences can lead people to believe in conspiracy theories: If you stay on the medications we have developed for you, the world is a beautiful place

Innuendo and pointing suspicion in news coverage can fuel conspiracy theories: We can't go beyond sound-bites into details because that would require us to make up too many details.

Anti-vaccine conspiracy theories may have 'detrimental consequences' for children's health: Has no one found a bite-sized easy to swallow explanation yet for how children who are not vaccinated pose a threat to those who are vaccinated and so supposedly protected?
