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….

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.

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.

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/).

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.

“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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
