This is not new. For a while now several "left-wing" groups/corporations have been trying to stop and suppress conservative videos, and content that would not bow down to the left-wing fascists. A few months ago corporations like youtube, google, Facebook/Fakebook hired pro-Soros, and very left-wing "fact-checkers" in their first attempt to suppress videos, or content that wasn't very "left-wing friendly".

For example.

George Soros is Funding Facebook's Third-Party Fact Checking Organization Targeting Fake News

EXCLUSIVE: Facebook 'fact checker' accused of defrauding website to pay for prostitutes

Now left-wing websites like Youtube are using people between the age 13-18 as "moderators" of what 'youtube" thinks should be labeled as "online terrorism and not advertisement friendly"... In fact they are using the excuse that they are "trying to fight online terrorism" to simply suppress and demonetize more and more conservative content.

Directly from their blog you can read the latest steps that youtube is taking to suppress what they call "hate speech, radicalization, and terrorism". Comments from youtubers who see these measures as nothing more than "trying to suppress freedom of speech" have been removed from the following link.


...
More experts: Of course, our systems are only as good as the the data they’re based on. Over the past weeks, we have begun working with more than 15 additional expert NGOs and institutions through our Trusted Flagger program, including the Anti-Defamation League, the No Hate Speech Movement, and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. These organizations bring expert knowledge of complex issues like hate speech, radicalization, and terrorism that will help us better identify content that is being used to radicalize and recruit extremists. We will also regularly consult these experts as we update our policies to reflect new trends. And we’ll continue to add more organizations to our network of advisors over time. Tougher standards: We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes. We’ll begin to roll this new treatment out to videos on desktop versions of YouTube in the coming weeks, and will bring it to mobile experiences soon thereafter. These new approaches entail significant new internal tools and processes, and will take time to fully implement.

Not only that but youtube is redirecting people who use "certain keywords" and they will be redirected towards "a playlist of curated youtube videos that directly confront and debunk violent extremist messages."

These are the same left-wing sources who yell "fake news" when independent media dares not bow down to "left-wing ideology".


...
Early intervention and expanding counter-extremism work: We’ve started rolling out features from Jigsaw’s Redirect Method to YouTube. When people search for sensitive keywords on YouTube, they will be redirected towards a playlist of curated YouTube videos that directly confront and debunk violent extremist messages.

These are the same type of actions which left-wing authoritarian regimes have used in the past.

Of course, several youtubers like "Paul Joseph Watson" have voiced concerns over these tactics taken by "youtube" amongst others.

When you fear different opinions, you censor/silence people.

Indicative of authoritarian ideologies.

YouTube has been censoring views they don't like for quite some time, and that is might as well be terrorism.
They use their power as a huge monopolistic corporation to get away with it, though.

Completely legal, just like the # that's been happening on the "news" for decades.

The internet could have freed up from those shackles.

Shame.



Edit: are all of those source videos about YouTube censoring... Hosted on YouTube?
Oh, how we've fallen.

Their excuses for failure are getting thinner and thinner.

Soon the "wafer" will split and crumble.

The MSM is getting exposed as phonies beyond anybody's dreams.

Maybe I'm growing old, and forgetful...

But wasn't the original premise behind YouTube to allow people to express themselves unfettered by commericialism, hollywood, etc...?

That's what I remember, anyway... Mandela moment??

Omg. between 13 and 18. The heart of the liberal educated movement. Where are the older mature people?

Lot of experience these kids have.

Easy. use Bing or yahoo or duck duck go. Never use google again if they have children making their policies.

Video... all youtubers should change to vimeo

YouTube's recent political maneuvering combined with the new advertisement model really opens up the avenue for something to take its place. IMO, this can't happen soon enough.

There are several other platforms in the works to combat youtube censorship. Gab.ai just came out with a video format and there are several others in the works.

it`s pathetic that youtube thinks that they are actually that relevant that they can influence politics,i thought that the only reason most people go on youtube is to watch music videos or car repair videos. anyone who watches youtube videos to gain a political perspective is someone who`s vote you shouldn`t be trying to get anyhow.
they aren`t serious about politics and voting because if they were they wouldn`t be going to youtube for political advice.

I was going to do a thread on this. Several vloggers I frequent had pretty much all their content removed by YouTube.

Dividing media based on political parties invented by those who wish to divide is is likely the worst idea I've heard all day.
And it's been a long day.

The internet gives everyone a voice- we need to not let it turn into the MSM, or worse...

Instead we need to work together.
Yes, many of the young folk on the "left" are completely bonkers- but they were born, raised, educated, and fostered in an environment completely shielded from reality.
I know, I was there. It happened to me, and I feel for it... For a while.

I don't live in a totally corrupt state, though. We're getting there, but we still balance the budget. Because of that, I had to grow up and face reality- I had to get a real job.

It's only taken a decade of hard work and sacrifice- home ownership and city life, to really appreciate the reality of this society.

I don't agree with most of this reality, but that doesn't change it.
Nothing is free, and politicians lie.

Left, right, whatever. I don't match up with either party, but I'm pretty sure they're all idiots and have no business running a country.

The internet could free us of Congress- we elect them to represent us. We could instead represent ourselves right down to the community level.
We elect local idiots to make local laws, when five minutes a week of our time could give an accurate count of what people actually want.

Then you sit there and talk about dividing the world's biggest force for voicing opinion into a couple of circle jerk echo Chambers, where nobody has to hear anything that doesn't agree with their potentially stupid viewpoint.

soros is a capitalist right winger, he spent his life fighting communism.
it's always funny when low level intellect types fantasise that he's bankrolling anything remotely left wing.
he is jewish which is where the original hatred came from, remember when goldman sachs were evil?
the far right need hate figures either real or imaginary so a jew seeking fair treatment for coloured people is an easy target.
unless you incorrectly class equal rights as left wing thing at which point stalin, mao and pol pot say hi.

YouTube is owned by the Builderberg visiting Google.

Is anyone really surprised?
