THE PURGE begins on YouTube, and NO ONE is safe!!

YouTube has begun a purge of accounts on their platform and a lot of people think it’s because of the crazy feud betwen Vox social justice warrior Carlos Maza and Steven Crowder.

Some people are taking to twitter to blame Maza for their accounts being deleted or demonetized:



From the Hill:

YouTube on Wednesday updated its policies to ban videos that promote extremist ideologies such as white supremacy or caste superiority, a move that could see hundreds of thousands of videos removed.

The changes aimed at curbing hate speech and misinformation come amid escalating scrutiny from regulators and lawmakers around the world over how the company, which is owned by Google, deals with bigoted or potentially radicalizing content.

But the ban was derided by critics on Wednesday as a public relations stunt. YouTube announced the policy in the midst of a high-profile controversy over its decision to allow a conservative commentator accused of racist and homophobic harassment to remain on the platform.

Yup. This is the chaos we’re in because they tried to police their platform based on definitions of “hatred” that the insane left has been pitching.

Now he’s all sad:

It’s the law of unintended consequences, idiot. If you actually listened to conservatives instead of just sneering at them condescendingly, you might have learned about it sometime before you ruined YouTube for so many creators….

  1. YT is in a pickle here, their revenue comes from these channels. I guess that they’re making enough money to sacrifice for the wokescolds.

    Chances are it has probably been in the works for awhile. Changes in policy generally takes time to roll out.

    YouTube on Wednesday updated its policies to ban videos that promote extremist ideologies such as white supremacy or caste superiority

    Ok, banning white supremacy might not be a bad thing, BUT they seem incapable of identifying actual white supremacy, which is probably pretty rare. So what about black supremacy and Antifa? Will those extremist ideologies get banned too? Somehow I doubt it. And what is caste superiority supposed to mean?

    This is the chaos we’re in because they tried to police their platform based on definitions of “hatred” that the insane left has been pitching.

    I agree Soop. Trying to define hate tends to end up being subjective and open to interpretation. It makes it impossible to police, so the only solution is just to ban everyone, which they seem to be doing.

    1. @watchman You’re right, YT has been quietly demonitizing firearms channels for some time, even innocuous creators like Taofledermaus, who specializes in slo-mo filming, mostly of the performance of shotgun slugs.

  3. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the last time I checked YouTube only plays videos that you intentionally click. If so, simply ignore the “offensive” video and move on with your life. If you don’t like being offended, then stop listening. This is how capitalism actually works. People vote with their pocketbooks.

  6. Maza’s getting hammered so fast and hard by critics of his action(s) by BOTH sides of the political spectrum he can’t keep up with the “blocking” feature fast enough.

    Everyone is delighting with reminding the schmuck he brought this all on himself.

    1. I had to do that early last year when they announced they were removing the majority of lawful firearms related videos.

      There are alternatives, but they have their own issues and still aren’t getting the traction. Personally I like full30.com, but that is strictly firearms related. Another option is UGEtube.com (https://videos.utahgunexchange.com/).

  9. The Left has always been disingenuous. They cloak themselves in showy catch-phrases, with unsaid qualifiers. They tout “free speach”, but only for those that agree with them. They want to “spread the wealth”, but only of those that have more than themselves. They want “equal rights, but not for those that disagree with them. They have the infantile mindset that they are always right, and if you disagree you just don’t understand (or are ‘evil’).

    And, since they are _so_ right, they can justify any action against those who do not agree. Just like the ‘nazis’ they so deplore.

  11. “First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew”
    “Then they came for”…

    There’s a reason why this iconic Martin Niemöller Poem rings true today as much as it did of the 1930s

    Leftism is an ideology “ism” every bit as evil, dangerous as Fascism-Nazism, Socialism-Marxism-Communism, Islamist Muslim Terrorism, Cultism, in fact it’s worse, it operates under the guise of democracy, is subversive, deviant, intolerant, insidious, and seditious, a virulent strain of neo-fascism, a poisonous cancer on civil society, freedom, liberty, truth, and when indoctrinated, blinds people to reality truth, becoming radical ideologue cultists, aka Democrats

    Make no mistake about it – We are in living dangerous Orwellian times, created by radical intolerant leftist ideologue neo-fascists, bent on controlling everyone and everything. Like Hitler’s 3rd Reich, they must be defeated, period !

    quote
    “Liberal Fascism (Leftism, Femi-Nazism, Progressivism) is a fascism with narcissistic appeal, universally adaptable to all people who will submit, and therefore is more dangerous than any fascism before, as it will find fewer opponents and is already accepted by millions world wide.”

    “Nonconformists will be deemed intolerant, and will not be tolerated.”

    1. “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

      Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.:”

      The quote actually starts with innocuous things most Germans opposed which is exactly what the SJW are doing. Most of us hate bigotry so we don’t defend the language that is bigoted even though it is just speech and one of our most fundamental rights. In various other speeches Martin Niemöller also include Catholics and Jehova’s Witness.

      I agree with what you are saying but we need to point out that only so called “hate” speech needs protection nobody is trying to stop messages of love. When as a society we attach even the hateful people we are doing ourselves a great disservice.

      1. First YouTube came for Alex Jones.

        Then YouTube came for Stephen Crowder.

        How long do you think it’ll be before they come for you?

    1. It’s another warning sign for anyone who thinks of creating content. YT is slowly killing itself, much like the way that other large organizations do. It’s all part of the cycle — if you don’t have a clear vision then you can devour yourself trying to create one. I won’t miss them.

    2. We have to remember, YouTube is owned by Google, which is owned by Alphabet.

      Just like Instagram and WhatsApp are owned by Facebook.

      And Tim Cook just the other day stated publicly about Apple’s intentions regarding their platform.

      And then there’s Twitter.

      Those four companies (Alphabet, Apple, Facebook and Twitter) cover the vast majority of social media platforming. Part of the problem (as a commenter on RedState recently mentioned) is that these companies want their cake and eat it too. They want to be considered a publisher as well as a platform.

  12. I blame Disney and revel in the $355 million write off of their $400 million “investment” in vox.

      1. Nuts! I’m guilty of fake news! :silly:

        It’s Vice they had the write for, not Vox.

        Sorry. :whew:

  15. Is Maza implying Crowder was producing ‘white supremacist content?’

    Also, the people describing Crowder’s content as ‘over the top,’ etc. aren’t helping matters. It’s like saying Mark Levin’s content is too angry, and Glenn Beck’s content is based too much on conspiracy theories, therefore it doesn’t matter if YouTube takes them out like Alex Jones.

    1. As a matter of free speech, Alex Jones shouldn’t have been taken out either.

      1. Exactly.

        I want crazy nutbags like Alex Jones to be able to speak freely.

        How can you know that he’s a crazy nutbag otherwise?

  17. All the shit we think is normal in rap videos is going to be up on the chopping block next.

    Damn right it is. Because I’ve spent the last four hours reporting every single one I can find that uses racial slurs or objectifies women.

    This is the only way to fight leftists (and stupid rightists), people. It’s not “fire with fire.” It’s not punching down. It’s not reducing yourself to their level. This has always been my bread and butter – and all the whiny sissy bitches that constantly downvote my posts know it better than anyone. This is why they hate me so much. I take your weakass argument; your nonsense reasoning, and I shove it back down your throat as hard as I can. I had a field day with that coward cop article yesterday. What was I doing? I was taking all the nonsense crap that everyone has always used on the subject of cops, and I choked them with it. And boy oh boy, I haven’t seen pissed off downvoting like that ever at TRS.

    You want to beat leftists, people? Take their rules, play their game on their field – and then ramp it up to eleven. Take your opponents argument, and walk it to its natural ends. Kill ’em with their own gun.

    1. Oh, AT, everyone knows you just do it for fun. I hope that’s not your bread and butter cause you’re going to be awfully hungry.

    2. I disagree with you AT. I don’t think you shoved anything up anyone’s rectum regarding that coward cop story. You just made yourself look like an ass. No offense, as I agree with many things that you say. But, definitely not all of it. On the cop thread you just made a simplistic generalization. You seem smarter than that, AT. I found your opinion quite weak, especially for you….

      1. You just made yourself look like an ass

        It was a sad display, especially knowing all along that AT thought that it was pure genius.

        You seem smarter than that, AT.

        AT is smarter than most. AT is not as smart as AT thinks AT is.

      2. Down their throats, not up their butts. Gross.

        On the cop thread you just made a simplistic generalization.

        Ah ah – I didn’t make a simplistic generalization. I used the simplistic generalization all these morons use when they defend police overreach/abuses.

        That was the point of the above post. Use their stupidity, dial it up to 11, and then watch the cognitive dissonance make their brains explode when the stupidity reaches its natural end.

        If they have integrity, they’ll re-think their position. If they’re prideful, they’ll start downvoting and going heavy on the fallacies. It’s usually the latter that occurs.

    3. Nah, we don’t know any such thing — at least I don’t. All I know is that you often take nonsensical positions and treat others poorly.

      1. I don’t treat anyone poorly. How could I? I don’t know anyone here. All that’s here is the words that show up on the screen. Maybe I treat that poorly, but when it’s really really stupid how else are you supposed to treat it?

        1. All that’s here is the words that show up on the screen

          Dehumanization of others, check.

          I don’t. [troll people here]
          I get trolled. A lot. But I mostly ignore it.

          It’s all about you without realizing the driver of your bad behavior, check.

          In this one thread, you’ve managed to raise some big bright red flags of acute narcissism. Not terribly surprising, except for how clearly you raised them.

          1. Dehumanization of others, check.

            What I’m saying is, the person behind the words is irrelevant. The words are the argument. They’re the only thing that matters when responding to it. If you’re emotionally investing in your conversations with randos on the internet, you’re doing it wrong.

            In this one thread, you’ve managed to raise some big bright red flags of acute narcissism.

            More barca lounger psychology. I love it. You and DS should start a club.

    4. This has always been my bread and butter – and all the whiny sissy bitches that constantly downvote my posts know it better than anyone.

      Trolling is just a tool. Go forth and try to use it for good.

      Take their rules, play their game on their field

      Yeah, and stop trolling people here.

        1. @dr-strangelove Right. Some days I ignore her (still not buying the female shtick, but whatever.)

          Some days I choose to engage. The bipolar nature of her trolling is tiresome.

          1. @trytothink I sense a need for acceptance with a contradictory desire to always be the smartest person in the room.

              1. Once more you can’t refute me and go on the attack. Observant is the word you’re looking for.

                1. There’s nothing to refute. You’re just trying to be insulting. That’s your whole schtick these days. Following me around like some little puppy looking for posts to downvote (and I’m not even the one who noticed it! People pointed it out to me!). I’ve been living rent free in your head for months. It’s sad.

                  I just find this particular insult interesting, because it really applies far more to you than it ever could to me.

                  So, again – projection much?

                2. See? Still trying to prove that you’re always right. I know that you’ll argue this to death, so you can have the last word.

                3. My favorite part, seriously, is how much effort you put into making sure everybody knows that you’re ignoring me. But you’re not, are you. Not even a little bit. At least once a day a post or a click from you to that effect. Yea, you’re ignoring me. OK. Wink.

                  That’s the most hilarious part of it all. And every little downvote and trollpost tells the undeniable story, doesn’t it. lol.

        2. That’s OK. I’ve don’t post for the sake of others. If you’re not interested in what I have to say, that’s your right. I don’t begrudge anyone that.

  18. I blame Disney and revel in the $355 million write off of their $400 million “investment” in vox.

  19. Many of these people honestly believe that socialism stops before nose diving into Communism and the devouring of your city’s zoo population, so I don’t expect them to understand the concept of unintended consequences, nor learn from this moment in internet history. They’ll do what most humans do in these situations, find a scapegoat to burn at the stake. Thankfully, it appears many are voting for Maza to climb the pyre for being a whiney baby. How poetic.

    2. I think then they were waiting for the most opportune time, for the policy update, so they can find a scapegoat. People would be mad at YouTube, but some of that anger will be now diverted towards Maza.

  21. People who post historical videos are getting demonetized/videoes banned. So I saw that a history teacher with videos of Nazis in WWII had videos 86’d. This is stupid and Youtube needs to figure out its ass from a hole in the ground. Go home, Youtube. You’re drunk.

  22. Even though Ford doesn’t blame Maza for this, but what Maza called for led to this. So it is Mazas’ fault.

  23. A Libtard platform. Here’s my shocked face. How about idiot conservatives stop sending them money and try and establish a platform of their own. Check out StreetLok. Stop being stupid.

  24. Is Maza implying Crowder was producing ‘white supremacist content?’

    Also, the people describing Crowder’s content as ‘over the top,’ etc. aren’t helping matters. It’s like saying Mark Levin’s content is too angry, and Glenn Beck’s content is based too much on conspiracy theories, therefore it doesn’t matter if YouTube takes them out like Alex Jones.
