**Title edited to fit*

Not sure if posted already, ATS search tool doesn't like me very much so...

Ran across this hashtag on Twitter today "#YouTubeWakeUp", went to look further into it and it seems YouTube is (or was, before being called out now) allowing child pornography content.

There were several channels with pedophilia related videos in which YouTube conveniently disabled the comment section, but DID NOT DELETED/SUSPENDED THE CHANNELS AND OR VIDEOS, knowing its content!!

Once again I'm here screaming at you guys that there's a elite running things and they are sick pedo bastards that run cults and secret rituals with children, and the big tech companies, such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc are owned by them. That's why they don't want the free speech and the truth scattered. That's why they're censoring people. It's damage control at its finest.

Anyways... I'll let the article speak for itself.


Over the weekend, a YouTube video highlighting child predators’ rampant use of the platform had gone viral. YouTuber Matt Watson posted the video walking users through how a simple YouTube search can easily uncover “soft” pedophilia rings on the video service.



Child exploitation is clearly an internet-wide issue, however, Watson’s video explored how YouTube’s recommendation algorithm works to add a unique problem for the site. As shown in Watson’s viral upload, a search for popular YouTube video niches, such as “bikini haul,” leads the platform to recommend similar content to viewers. If a user clicks on a single recommended video featuring a child, the viewer can get sucked into a “wormhole,” as Watson calls it, where YouTube’s recommendation algorithm will proceed to push content to the viewer which strictly features children.





These recommended videos then become inundated with comments from child predators. Often times, these comments directly hyperlink timecodes from within the video. The linked timecodes often forwards a user to a point in the video where the minor may, innocently, be found in compromising positions. On these video pages, these commenters also share their contacts so that they can trade child pornography with other users off of YouTube’s platform.

On top of all of this, Watson pointed out that many of these videos were monetized. Basically, big brands’ advertisements were appearing right next to these comments.



The video quickly went viral on Reddit and viewers quickly started spreading the hashtag #YouTubeWakeUp across social media, urging the company to take action.

While many popular creators covered the issue, PhillyD received a comment from the official YouTube channel after he posted his video:


“We appreciate you raising awareness of this with your fans, and that you realize all of us at YouTube are working incredibly hard to root out horrible behavior on our platform,” said YouTube in their comment.

“In the last 48 hours, beyond our normal protections we’ve disabled comments on tens of millions of videos,” the statement continued. “We’ve also terminated over 400 channels for the comments they left on videos, and reported illegal comments to law enforcement.”


Bullsnip! YouTube knew about it for years and let it happen anyways. There should be legal investigation and if found they were aware and complicit, they should be held accountable for this.


This isn’t the first time YouTube has been accused of having child exploitation issues. In 2017, a slew of problematic videos were found on the platform, specifically marketed to children — often times directly on the YouTube Kids app. These videos presented popular children’s characters with adult themes, sometimes in sexually explicit fashion.

Also this,

Reports of suicide instructions being spliced into kids’ YouTube videos are real

Whoever believes YouTube is not intentionally letting these kind of contents in its platform is too naive for reality.

There are lots of these going around. MooMoo, Else bath time, etc.

I believe it. I just am frustrated I haven't been able to see any of the videos. I'm okay with not seeing pedophilia. I just wish I could see the uproar instead of just hearing it word of mouth.

Life lesson though: Parents need to be monitoring content, not shoving their kid in a corner with a tablet to get a moment of silence.

Holy #...I could not watch that video. Very uncomfortable and my naive 40 year old self needed this little bit of a reality check. Seriously Pedo's should be given no mercy.

Should be a kill on site order for pedos.

I am a grandpa to a 4 and 2 year old and you gotta monitor! My 4 year old loves the paw patrol vids where a person plays with the toys. He puts my headphones on and i just let the vids roll. BUT....some sick bleeps out there are injecting violent segments into fake vids.

HOnest to god i am ready to unplug.

Seems like kid channels should not be viewable by adult accounts.

Pretty sure facebook has this feature.

Hell, they are shutting down normal folks comment sections! One of the channels I watch about living in China as a foreigner just had their whole comment section AND their JOIN function locked. NOTHING on that channel remotely comes close to anything even fringing on pedo crap. Another channel from a family who plays arcade games had their comment section locked due to certain key words being used in their comment section. Perhaps it because they have 2 young daughters who are in the videos but I know damn well they would lock out anyone talking pervy about their daughters.

Just found this video.
It gives a bit of behind the scenes detail of the creator of the above video and shows how he might not be the superhero I just thought he was.



On second thought, I don't know.
Maybe they were just joke videos he was doing.
I don't even know what's right and wrong to think anymore...FML

Youtube should change it's name to YouPedo.




Meanwhile unwelcome political opinions are being censored elsewhere.

Ain't gonna happen.

Conscientious tuned-in parents seem to be getting rarer and rarer. When television became widespread and in every home, guess what...parents loved Sat. mornings because they could plop their kiddos down in front of the TV for hours of cartoons and never hear a peep out of them.

Parents are doing the same today with tablets and laptops. The first iPad was released in 2010. We have had less than a decade of this babysitter technology. Kids are slipping through the cracks and parents are oblivious to what those kids are seeing and watching. (In all fairness, not all parents are this inattentive.)

Don't think the sleazy pervs aren't slipping # in.

Ugh, this is a disaster. I've disabled youtube indefinitely on my home wifi to keep my younger kids off.

DigginFoTroof did a thread on this when the video first came out on the 18th.
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I have been researching this for several years, a rabbit hole I almost wish I never entered. It has drastically changed my world view.
I am not just talking about the YT pedo issue, but the global elites, politicians, vatican, government agencies, etc, etc, etc...

It has been going on for decades, dare I say centuries. The evil is beyond my comprehension.

Sadly, I see no end to it because so many embrace the evil.

I am thankful for everyone of these scumbags caught and put away, but those actually brought to justice are barely a dent in the cult.
The whole subject is very depressing to me.
S&F for bringing attention to it.

Truly disgusting, reminds me of the foreign movies Netflix is starting to show with pedophile undertones. Main reason why I canceled my subscription and now thinking about dropping youtube entirely.

YouTube's issue is at least fixable... Human trafficking and child abuse is some massive scary shiat. YouTube will eventually fix this now that attention is put on it, but it's bizarre that they are more focused with alt-right and conspiracy.

How the hell do you fix the evil stuff that can't be solved by an algorithm and protected by very powerful people?
