YouTube Implementing Limited State Censorship On Religious, Supremacist Content
YouTube
(Last Updated On: August 2, 2017)

Google rolled out a new blog post update for their Limited State policy on religious and supremest content deemed “extremist”, even if the content does not directly violate YouTube’s content policy rules. The new Limited State policy will be rolled out over the next few weeks for desktop devices, and will roll out thereafter for mobile devices.

According to Google, this new method will be the first step in a series of new measures to curb what they deem as “extremist” and “terrorist” content. According to the post, Limited State content will be demonetized, will not allow for comments, and will not be recommended…

“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.”

YouTube will also be applying a new facilitation tool for cultural re-education in the form of automatically redirecting people toward playlists, information and videos that “debunk” terminology, phraseology, studies and information that they deem harmful.

The post states…

“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.”

Google will be working with the Anti-Defamation League, No Hate Speech Movement, and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue to help identify and categorize language and content that they feel is extremist or offensive, even if it does not directly violate YouTube’s content policy rules. They will be updating a machine learning algorithm to automatically apply the Limited State functionality to videos that the AI labels as “extremist” or “supremest”.

YouTuber Mister Metokur did a short video on the situation, outlining how a method of shadowbanning was used against psychologist Jordan Petersen, and that he was able to get his content and account back after Google attempted to scrub him from the net, as reported by the Daily Caller. However, it’s stated that Petersen only managed to get his account back because of how popular he is and due to the value of his brand. Metokur believes average users will be affected much more negatively due to their lack of social media capital to force a company not to censor them.

According to AdWeek, Google will be working with 15 additional non-governmental institutions to help curb “hate speech”, and will continue to improve their machine learning in order to censor, demonetize, and de-platform content they deem offensive.

    Ladies and… no wait, let me start again.

    *cough*

    Gentlemen, welcome to the future, where we have nothing to say and are udderly fucked. There is only one thing to do and that is… to tear it down, so that no one has fun. If feminazis and SJWs can do it, so shall we!

    I got respect for Jim AKA mister metokur as he was a supporter of GG before he left it.

    Didn’t agree why he left it though, but that his right.

    On a different note I just leave this here. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/60eccbf59640f249b66ccbea4256b190299bb99e7f5b34e4c63cb9f93763a8da.jpg

    …and who watches the watchmen?

  • Raging Papist

    This is huge. We need to work towards creating another platform that promotes free expression–like Gab instead of Twitter–but for video. The Left had lost the political/culture war HARD on Youtube and everyone knows it. This was their nuclear response. Its going to get a whole lot worse.

  • Randal Brown

    Why do I think that islamic extremists and violent leftists will still have a platform.
    And that people like PewdePie and mark dice will be censored.

    • Kiryu

      As usual with leftists.Lauren Southern got banned from Patreon while Antifa is still there and they violated every one of their rules.

      • VersVlees

        Lol what Antifa has Patreon?? Doesn’t that clash with their whole anarchist commie ideology?

        I’m actually surprised Antifa has such a presence in the US. (it is weird seeing them at the student protests at your campuses)

        I always thought they were a more European cancer. They tend to show up during protest in European cities especially if the extreme right is involved or during G8 conferences.

        • Kiryu

          Antifa are known to be hypocrites.They shout against capitalism while their take selfies on their Iphones.

          Antifa are just some of the many guard dogs of the system to crush any uprising opposition.Remember that the absolute horror of any normie is being called a racist.

        • They’re a destabilization organization. These groups aren’t restricted to any single one region. Think of it as the homegrown hipster ISIS of the West.

  • Alistair

    Hmm interesting it said videos will remain but hide behind like no recommendations, no links etc etc but the vids will still be there I’m I right,

    So what the whole point. People will look for it, it be harder to find but possible.

    Edit: another issue I have with this is what consider extremist views apart from the bloody obvious ones.

    Under the term extremist everything deem questionable will be censored and not just the terrorists vids but others vids that Anti SJWs will be in the firing line.

    I’m all for taking down sites that want to kill us all. But this is not the way to do it. What needs to be done is tracking the IP of such vids.

    What we got here is a vague of what content to be censored.

    • So that’s pretty much indirect semi-censorship then.

    • What we got here is a vague of what content to be censored.

      It’s vague on purpose. It allows them to exercise their own rights on when something is “extreme” or not.

      Let’s say Sarkeesian complains to them about harassment from Sargon… at their convenience if they want to label Sargon as “extremist”, they can.

      Let’s say some SJWs complain about some research studies based on biological science stating that there are only two genders, YouTube can deem that research as “supremacist” content and have it shadowblocked.

      Their rules are vague on purpose because it’s about information control, and what they want you to know, when they want you to know it. Think of it as a proto-program for the Ministry of Truth.

      • Alistair

        And yes that my utter point and say you and I are critical against our Govt I give my govt a tweet-full my disgust about the benefits cuts etc etc.

        They could control that damage towards them and maybe label me a extremist. because my views are critical of them.

        In short the word extremist isn’t only a reference to terrorists groups. It rather wide and broader then that. As you say it to control what you say and basically it means any excuses for them to get you censored.

  • RichardGristle

    Muh net neutrality! Damn you, Donald Trump!

    Meanwhile, at Google headquarters…

  • Looks like we’re going to have to stand against this.

    • People have been saying this for the last few years, precisely jack s*it has happened. If anything, they’ve gotten even stronger and more powerful. And will continue to do so.

      Face it, not enough people care enough, and normies and casuals are still using YouTube/Google as if their lives depends on it. Therefore, people calling for a boycott of YouTube is ridiculous. The people calling for this and the people who are boycotting are only a minority, mainly the Anti-SJWs and Conservatives, because after all, it’s them that’s being affected.

      The beauty blogging, video game play-through, fashion, sports, jokes/pranks, hipster retards will all still be using YouTube.

  • Kiryu

    These sjw fuckers are a plague to humanity,their god Stalin would be proud.

    • “Just ignore them and they’ll go away.”

      That’s what we were told, like 15 years ago.

      • Kiryu

        Dumbest thing i ever heard.Yeah ignoring problems will totally make it go away.

  • During the whole gay pride initiative YouTube was advertising extensively this year, I kept trying to get them to feature an interview I conducted with a lesbian couple where they talk about acceptance and stereotypes. Guess neither of them were man-hating enough to warrant any exposure. They want to embrace the fringes of leftist society, but when it comes to every day people who aren’t spewing social justice talking points, Google has no interest.

    • They were doing the same with the search feeds, which is why they got hit with the $2.7 billion fine.

  • Thanks Thinkpol for telling us what to think, watch and consume.

  • Mr.Towel

    Now it’s the call of duty. It’s time to ditch google. It’s time to move to other platforms, whether they working well or not. This shit cannot go unpunished.

    • Watch this go unpunished and promoted in front of your very own eyes.

      Not enough people care enough.

      • Mr.Towel

        Unfortunately it’s a likely outcome.

        Trying to be hopeful however, I would expect the anti-SJW to leave youtube in droves (an unlikely task in itself), while at the same time, the algorithm google uses to implement the Limited State goes haywire (by sheer incompetence from their part, it has happened before) and start affecting normies on their beauty, teenage and dad humor channels by mis-tagging them.

        A man can dream.

        • Unfortunately it’s a likely outcome.

          There’s no “likely” in it, it IS going to be the outcome.

          Trying to be hopeful however

          Come on mate, while it’s always good to have optimism, I think it’s time we stopped kidding ourselves. XD

  • Pratim Gupta

    We stand together gamers, we stand for anti-censorship and anti-sjw in gaming. politics is not out movement, Redpill and all is not our job, we are Gamers not Political crybabies. #StandUnitedGamers

    • politics is not out movement, Redpill and all is not our job

      Then that’s a shame, considering that the politics is what’s causing the censorship and SJW infestation in video games in the first place.

      The Redpilling is what leads most people to fight against the censorship and SJWs.

      You one of those “I don’t want censorship in video games but I’ll completely ignore what’s causing it” types?

      Feel free to attack the cancer cells and completely ignore the tumor.

      And you do realize the irony that you posted your soapbox lecture in the Comments section of an article in which the topic is not even about video games right?

      • Pratim Gupta

        The more we get involved in politics the more we move away from our goals, Gamergate was ran off from 4chan by the Political people, forcing to migrate to other boards

        Redpillers hold us gamers in a low view, they are becoming two face of the same coin of SJW, instead of being awakened to the things happening they are devolving into a misogynistic miserable group, i have been in that community before Gamergate started, they have moved away from their goals and they called us every slang from Basement dweller to everything, if you try to argue with them, they will call you fag and ban your account (happened to mine)
        “Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” — Friedrich Nietzsche

        • The more we get involved in politics the more we move away from our goals

          What goals might that be then?

          GamerGate has already achieved it’s main principle goal. And that’s the ethics in journalism. That’s what it’s originally about remember? GamerGate has successfully made the mainstream games media re-work their own rules in order to make it so that they need write a few lines of disclosure in their articles.

          Personally I don’t class that as a “win” because the corruption, bias and SJW political propaganda still remains, but the GG Ethics-Only brigade keep saying it’s a win. It’s all subjective of course.

          I personally think it’s time to start expanding beyond the video games bubble and attack the actual tumor. Therefore if your other GamerGate goals are ridding the censorship and the SJW infestation, this is the way to go.

          Gamergate was ran off from 4chan by the Political people, forcing to migrate to other boards

          Correct. But allow me to alter your comment for it to be more accurate here:

          “Gamergate was ran off from 4chan by the SJWs-in-disguise Political people, forcing to migrate to other boards”

          Redpillers hold us gamers in a low view, they are becoming two face of the same coin of SJW, instead of being awakened to the things happening, i have been in that community before Gamergate started, they have moved away from their
          goals and they called us every slang from Basement dweller to everything, if you try to argue with them, they will call you fag and ban your account (happened to mine)

          Do you know why some Red-pillers hold some gamers in a “low view”? It’s because gamers are far too soft in their approach in fighting the culture war against SJWs. A lot of gamers are too concerned with staying on that moral high-horse in order to be the “good guys”, meaning nothing really gets done.

          And based on personal experience, there is an increasing amount of cuckery and tone-policing going on within GamerGate, especially a year ago in KiA. Have you ever seen the reasons on why some of the KiA Moderators bans people for? It’s near identical to the reasons on why SJWs ban people for. That’s why you now have GamerGate+ and the “GG SJW-Lite” insult.

          And don’t use “us”, you don’t speak for all gamers, just like how Netscape doesn’t speak for GamerGate. GamerGate at it’s core has always been a leaderless movement and the way of “doing GamerGate” is solely down to the individual.

          I prefer to “do GamerGate” via the method of Red-pilling and expanding outside beyond the video games bubble all the way to the political level, because I recognize that the SJW politics is what’s causing the censorship and SJW infestation in video games. I hope you respect that. Just like I respect your method of doing GamerGate.

          instead of being awakened to the things happening they are devolving into a misogynistic miserable group

          Like every other movement, it’s has it’s bad apples.

          Just like the GamerGate members who devolve into SJW-like tone-policing authoritarians who scream at anyone who doesn’t do GamerGate in the moral high-horse way.

          “Whoever fights monsters should
          see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” — Friedrich Nietzsche

          That’s a very nice quote, but unfortunately wars are not won by being nice.

          And no, I’m not advocating for turning into the same monsters as the opposition.

          Instead, I’m advocating for expanding outside of the bubble and getting more aggressive by attacking the opposition with the facts, reason and logic. You know, kind of like taking a leaf out of the SJW tactical rulebook. Because as they’ve shown, being loud works.

          I much prefer that then being a useless Moderate fence-sitting cuck that gets nothing done. A majority of GamerGate has been doing the moral high-horse for almost 5 years now and it has not changed one single thing.

          • Alistair

            Yes I agree the point of gamers that use moral high ground doesn’t get things done.

            Like the time we stay silent over the years.

            TBH I’m really getting tired to use the term SJWs, regressions, the left etc etc. Because nothing is getting done. I called them retarded cunts.

            The only way to stop the rot, is

            A. Do not buy the TV licence like me, but me and a maybe a few others will not have a effect.

            B. Keep buying imports that don’t censored the games. If you do buy a censored game to understand the story shop around for the cheapest price. Again me and others are doing just that again no effect.

            Some Devs have close down due to lack of sales.

            C. As above but instead of censorship we also have “shoe horsing of diversity” mostly in AAA titles need to play them but get them cheap or not at all because those AAA titles are often to be called for censorship too. Or worse to be banned like GTA5.

            And lastly keep shit posting your views, keep calling them out. We here for the long hurl.

          • `A. Do not buy the TV licence like me, but me and a maybe a few others will not have a effect.

            How do you avoid this though? If you have a TV in the house, you are obliged to pay the license fee. I’ve even seen some people say that even having a computer monitor (basically it allows one to watch mainstream TV channels by streaming) classes as having a TV.

            Isn’t there some ridiculous fine if you get caught not paying it?

            Therefore seeing as what, 99% of households in the UK have a TV and watch it, the BBC will always survive.

            I think telling people not to pay their TV license fee is a bit like trying to tell a group of lions to not kill and eat a sheep.

          • Alistair

            No not necessarily true, as long the TV isn’t link up to the aerial outlet and not getting any signal. You do not need a TV licence.

            Because I ask them. You get a letter saying back. That now you not paying one with the normal guidelines do and don’t.

            I can’t not use any device to watch live TV even ITV, or I player on my tablet. I can use my telly as a monitor to play just video games. The TV detractors van will only see me playing uncensored waifu smacking, whipping criminal girls 2 lol 😂

            I also know it a tall order to give advice to people, but like I said I’m not other people keeper. They either follow advice or won’t.

            But most people do not want censorship and bullshit social justice and besides the SJWs are not the majority.

    • Alistair

      Politics does comes into play well here in the U.K. at least. Next year the porn websites to get a Age gateway and added censorship in the form of banning certain type of sex acts.

      it all due to UK govt policy, the same with games censorship doesn’t come about by itself.

      It needs to be triggered by influences and that can only be done by lobbyists (SJWs) groups with a political point of views.

      The way we arrived here was because we stayed silent over the years and SJWs grew in size. And since they here it harder to remove them.

      But I want to know if the BBFC can police the big wide web I think it be impossible to keep track on everything arould the world.

      • Remember what happened when Australia was unable to do that through the Classification Board — they outsourced censorship to an international committee through the IARC. Don’t be shocked if the BBFC does something similar.

      • Pratim Gupta

        U.K is going downhill, age gate for just porn, now that’s some bullsh*t. its more of NWO thing than SJW, only big minds like Trump and such can fight them, SJW are their canon fodders and attack virus, something that we have to contain in order for the big boys to administrate the cure

        Unfortunately the race bullsh*t has divided our former groups, 4chan has devolved into ‘We wuz kangz and Muh White powa’ groups, no real solutions or anything. we are becoming too much divided, so much so that we were chased off 4chan.

        We can only trust our fellow gamers and no one else. the opponent is two faced, at one hand it will give you candy and the other stab you in the back

        • Unfortunately the race bullsh*t has divided our former groups, 4chan has devolved into ‘We wuz kangz and Muh White powa’ groups, no real solutions or anything. we are becoming too much divided, so much so that we were chased off 4chan.

          Glad I’m not the only one who noticed that. For /pol/ to supposedly be the “enlightened” element of the chans without all the other nonsense filters in place, they’ve literally devolved into tribal factionalism. The /pol/ news feed on Twitter is still legit, though. It’s good they haven’t been overrun with nonsense… yet.

            Spot on Wadsy

            Pol has started cannibalizing itself, you want to know why Trump is hated because he has attracted these kind of people into his group, if he never associated with them and denounced them he would have a nice time

    so what’s holding everyone back to using Vimeo?

    • SevTheBear

      YouTube is completely free with unlimited storage when it comes to hosting. With Vimeo you have to pay a Membership fee if you wish to upload content over 500MB per year to your channel.

      • Daniel Ream

        If you’re not paying for it, you’re not the customer, you’re the product.

        Google’s only actual business is ad revenue. Everything else is funded out of that firehose of cash. If YouTube had to support itself it would be bankrupt in a week from power costs in the datacenters alone.

        Vimeo’s basic account is 500MB/*week*, not year; that’s enough for a weekly video blog, and the Plus tier is about $7/month. If you don’t care enough about your philosophy to spend the equivalent of a latte grande on it once a month, then it’s probably not that important.

        What’s really holding everyone back is that we have no idea how Vimeo is going to react when they get complaints about Sargon of Akkad or Vox Day or Pamela Geller. That’s the real litmus test.

        • Alistair

          Hmm interesting so for a paid service, you wouldn’t want to be censored then. Maybe that the way to go.

          After all youtubes are never short of cash. The one thing that riled me up is this too that youtubers were angry about how goggle treats them losing them money & pro censorship. But still use the service.

          It’s the catch 22 isn’t it you dam if you do and dam if you don’t.

  • I remember that one time prominent feminists talked with Google in a conference. I’ve yet to see anyone prove their intentions were to not advocate for shit like this. Even if they weren’t talking about anything special, the fact Google has directly listened to the European Union and their “hate” speech guidelines means YouTube has become a tool for globalism and corporatism. Those stories you read/watched/heard where everything presented to you is a thinly veiled lie set up by an unstoppable force of evil, whether it’s propaganda posters, politically correct advertisements and media, or government-curated political opinions that only ever express support for the state, were not hypothetical ideas and themes. They’re reality.

    • durka durka

      Not the EU, the EU is useless and cant force its own members to follow the rules. Italy and Greece lied about their statistics. Infact right now the man that created those statistics for Greece has been convicted for his actions

      https://www.reuters.com/article/us-eurozone-greece-stats-trial-idUSKBN1AH3W3

      Needless to say EU and especially the Germans DONT LIKE IT….but guess what they do? NOTHING, same thing they did to Poland and Hungary for not wanting to take any refugees. They said they will put fines on them but nothing happened.

      Eu like the UN are useless and cant do shit about anything. The Germans managed to CUCK themselves but nor Eu or Germany can impose their laws to everyone else because the eu like then un are useless.

      Look at what is going on in Venezuela, Un be like “oh this is horrible and we are against it”

      Well do something about it then…..NOPE, nothing. They are useless. Personally i would argue that private corporations who hold monopolies like Google have more power than the government, after all they lobby for all those laws. Money makes the world go around and where there is none to be made, there is no point in doing anything.

      On the other hand if you look at china, they have a system that if you or any of your friends on social media says bad things about the government, you dont get special priviliges from the government. Now that is 1984

      • China is far worse, I agree, but when I mention the EU, I’m not exactly joking with Google’s capitulation to them. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/06/02/eu-praises-facebook-and-google-for-hate-speech-crack-down/

        And if not capitulation, then whatever they’re doing is most certainly getting praise from them.

        • durka durka

          I am sorry i keep forgeting, to understand Eu you have to speak Brussels. They speak like ambassadors. They cant force you to do anything they can suggest thinks and tell you what they think

          “shows that a self-regulatory approach can work”

          Yet self regulation does not seem to work on any of eu countries that have problems. Eu is not forcing them to do anything, thats why all those countires are a mess, because they are not “forcing” anyone to do anything. They expect you to regulate yourself. A journalist i follow asked someone high up in eu what happens if a country in the eu ends up with a authoritarian leader like Maduro, because they worry about Poland, Hungary and Greece and the response was “eu will keep fucking you up until you join, after that there is no supervision whatsoever it is up to you to do it”

          Which explains why Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal happened.

          Its like having USA but every state does whatever the hell they want, the Eu is a bureacratic mess with no power, which explains why Farage managed to get as far as he did. It cant possily force anyone to do anything, so this kind of censorship will never be implemented.

          • I’m still gonna disagree with something here. You make it sound like the EU is recommending their members do what they say, rather than trying to actively force them to agree. Why else are countries like Poland being ordered to take in “refugees”, or else be hit with fines as if they’re committing a crime? The EU is a globalist plot to turn the continent of Europe into one single superstate, and they’re trying their damnedest to dis-incentivize anyone that operates in Europe from disobeying them.

          • durka durka

            Yes they are reccomendending they cant force anyone to do anything. Those countries are not “ordered” after many many months EU is pretty much saying “take them or you dont get any money from us” So they are not giving them money if they dont take them. Now how exactly is some form of fascist globalist conspiracy that you think it is?

            If they leave the eu then THEY DONT GET ANY MONEY, which is why they dont leave the eu. If you want to be part of Eu you gotta follow the rules and Eu being incompetent it doesnt enforce the rules until its too late. So essentially what you arguing here is that EU should give those countries money for their development without having to follow the rules.

            Look if you dont like eu and want out, then get out, dont ask for money and then you bash the eu for telling you what to do.

            Yes the goal of eu is to one point become the united states of europe, that will wipe the floor with usa, but in order to do that many many years have to pass and people have to actively want to move through furhter integration. The only reason that this isnt happening is because eu members elect politicians that dont push towards integration.

            So you bashing the eu while the only ones who decide further integration and the rules are the prime ministers during eurogroups, well thats kinda pointless if you ask me.

          • If you’re gonna keep saying “recommended” when I say forced/ordered, then fuck off, because we’ll be running in a circle. I’m not playing your semantics game.

    • Let’s face it, who would have the guts to question oppressed women who are trying to make the Internet a “safer place”, to “combat misogyny”, to “combat harassment” and to “combat bullying”?

      These buzzwords and phrases sound extremely good-intentioned to brain-dead, clueless and gullible simpletons. That’s why SJWs/feminists are able to push forward and be successful with this crap every time.

  • SevTheBear

    And so begins 1984

    • It already began as far back as the 1990s mate. In the 2000s, you could already see Social Justice in the mainstream TV news and newspapers.

      Then the Internet went mainstream and here we are.

      • SevTheBear

        True

  • Phasmatis75

    How far into the ground is Youtube going to be ran before Google fires the person running it into the ground?

    • SevTheBear

      When they lose A LOT of money

      • ThyPancakeConsumed

        They already have more money than europian union and usa combined…

        • durka durka

          stats?

        • SevTheBear

          So that means never

    • From what I remember, the CEO of Google/YouTube is an SJW feminist. So never.

      • Phasmatis75

        Well thus far big corporations are pulling their advertisement dollars, they’re loosing their US government contracts, youtube is dying, so yeah I can hear a vote of no confidence against him in the near future.

  • Darius B

    So YT has finally fallen as they roll out censorship not to help but silence people. Great. What is better platform than yt at the moment that is promising?

    • SevTheBear

      There is smaller sites that offer this kind of video service. But none of them are big enough atm. But if YouTube / Google keeps fucking up this much, the others might grow bigger

    • Vidme is apparently quite promising.

  • Hawk Hopper

    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.

    I wonder how many anti-feminist,anti-BlackLivesMatter and anti-Islam related searches will be redirected to YouTube’s WokeSchool(TM).

    • Disqusted

      I’m expecting them to start redirecting Pewdiepie any day now.

      • durka durka

        where to buzzfeed? Thinking about this is propably what the curated playlist will be and you cant downvote it or comment either,

    • LurkerJK

      You are not thinking big enough.

      This is a red pilling prevention and indoctrination move. YouTube is a big educator these days, ppl go there to learn anything from politics to engineering, and YouTube can carefully curate exactly what kind of ideas are put in their heads

      Wanna know about how modern academia is bullshit ? You get 50 videos about why social studies is the bestest mayor

      Wanna know if an University is a sjw cesspool? You get 50 videos on how that place is awesome

      Wanna know if the green monster claims are bullshit ? You get 50 videos lecturing you on why doubting them is racist

      Want to learn about reproduction ? You get 50 videos about the 674674 genders

      Wanna know how to use a MOSFET or a microcontroller ? 50 vídeos that start doing that and then go on rants about the wage gaps and 50/50 quotas

      Etc, etc.

      • This is a red pilling prevention and indoctrination move. YouTube is a big educator these days, ppl go there to learn anything from politics to engineering, and YouTube can carefully curate exactly what kind of ideas are put in their heads

        Bingo. Someone gets it.

        • tajlund

          The hilarious part of this is, due to the REAL reasons behind this, no terrorist or Jihadi propaganda will actually be controlled by this. Just “wrong thinking”.

  • Blake

    As far as I’m concerned so long as they don’t take the video down it’s not censorship. Not coming up in related videos or minimization – boo hoo

    • This comment reminds me of the television exec from the movie Welcome to Sarajevo who didn’t want to cover the Bosnian war, and the journo had to remind him that to the average person war doesn’t exist if you don’t report on it.

      • Disqusted

        It seems like regardless of how significant an event may occur, the meaning and implications will completely fly over the heads of most of the population and be dismissed as nothing. Apathytastic.

        Anyway, I’ve probably said too much. Need to go get some sleep. Would be nice to wake up in a world that doesn’t suck, and all of this will have just been a horrible nightmare in passing.

      • Blake

        I wasn’t referencing the article, just how people get whiny when they realize that maybe putting an avatar in front of a Young Turks video and commenting every 3 seconds isn’t a viable career path

      • Mr.Towel

        Still happens today. There’s so many recent wars, massacres, genocides happening and nobody knows about them because the media simply doesn’t report on it. So for the average Joe it’s like it never happened to begin with.

        • Exactly. It’s all about information periphery. People only know what’s brought into their peripheral reality. Anything outside of their purview doesn’t exist to them, even when it’s an actuality.

    • Disqusted

      What do you think about them effectively deleting Petersen? Boo hoo?

      I don’t know Petersen (never seen his stuff), but I know I’d be pretty f**king annoyed if I suddenly found they deleted my YouTube channels and my Gmails and refused to reinstate them.

      I think the point is when they show they are capable of doing shit like this for whatever reason, why should we trust them to not do crazier shit? If you look at all the shit they’ve been doing, and the people involved, it becomes pretty obvious there’s more to all of this than how you’re describing it.

      Let’s talk about the removal from related videos. Do you upload YouTube videos? I’m pretty sure I get a ton of hits from people following “related video” links. How do you think people find stuff?

      They are basically ensuring that only videos they approve of will be pushed to the top of related video links and get more hits, whilst suppressing videos they do not approve of. It’s selectively manipulating the flow of information, plain and simple.

      Well, maybe you’ll understand better when every single related video is some pro-SJW nonsense, and you can’t find anything you actually want to see. Boo hoo.

      • Blake

        From what I see Youtube’s recommendation is already Buzzfeed videos. Comments are about as useful as like/dislike ratios. So long as you still get notifications about channels you subscribe to thats good enough. This just gives more power to 4chan and everywhere else people link a video.

        • durka durka

          Yes but you cant find those channels if you cant get recomendations . Also it is know some times youtube does not notify you if a new video is uploaded by one of the people you are subscribed to.

        • What about people who are newcomers and the next generation?

          Not to mention the people who are not subscribed to the Anti-SJW creators?

          You haven’t thought this through have you?

    • durka durka

      You can make a video or write an article. But no one will watch it or read it. Even if you spam it around, your posts will be shadowbanned. even if you tell people to search for it directly and they find it and read it and watch it, they wont be able to comment on it, or click like or even tell you that they know of its existance.

      It is the equivalent of writing a book but no one wanting to publish it and no one allowing you to show it to anyone, the book only exists in your home and no one else can see it unless you take them to your home and show it.

      But its not censorship.

      • James

        It’s like if the net-neutrality debate was over virtual signals instead of corporate profits. They’re slowing down the access to people not virtual signaling hard enough.

      • Daniel Ream

        No, it isn’t censorship.

        YouTube is not a public utility. Facebook is not a public utility. These are businesses, just like Wal-Mart or the convenience store on the corner. Just like the owner of the Wal-Mart or the Stop’n’Go doesn’t have to let you set up a soapbox inside their store and rant at their customers, or allow a bunch of random people to hold their weekly Flat Earth Society meeting in their store, Google and Facebook don’t have to let you do a damn thing on their services running on their servers in their data centers that they own and pay for.

        No one wanting to publish your book isn’t censorship, either. No one allowing you to show off your book on their private property isn’t censorship either. If you want people to read your book, publish and print it yourself, and sell it yourself. That option has always been available to you. Nothing Google, YouTube or Facebook does takes that option away from you.

    • James

      Humans naturally want to be part of the crowd. It’s a survival mechanism. If Youtube visitors don’t see that other people are talking about non-SJWtopics, they will assume that they’re a tiny minority and have no desire to listen. This is why controlling the news and media is so dangerous if done by a majority. It uses human nature against ourselves.

      • Mr.Towel

        This behavior you’re talking is a real thing. It’s exploited using a technique known as the Spiral of Silence. Go look it up.

        They know what they’re doing. Those who don’t want to believe are the naive ones.

    • You are absolutely clueless.

  • Disqusted

    Thanks for the article. Saw this all coming a mile away because of Google fapping with SJWs and YouTube’s CEO being an ultra-SJW. Are they still working with CON and FF too? I figured they would be. They’re all best friends in bed with each other.

    Remember that thing a while back where Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other big companies all decided to gang up with lying scammers like Snopes to “fight fake news” or some shit? They are literally all in bed with each other.

    And now they’re using their monopolies to erase people from the web. Maybe I’m going a little far in suggesting this, but what’s stopping them from trying to erase people in reality via “accidents”, so that we can’t kick up a fuss about being erased online? I wouldn’t be surprised if things headed in that direction.

    It’s obvious they already control the media. With this extra censorship, they can further control the flow of information. If someone died suspiciously, nobody would know, because nobody would be able to talk about it without getting silenced or ridiculed. As long as they aren’t famous people like Petersen. Most of the famous people are busy having pizza parties with each other, anyway. They’ve already been trying to divide everybody, too. So it’s not like people could easily share info with each other. They’ll just keep arguing over what should be obvious fact.

    Isn’t it interesting how we’ve gone straight into the dystopian future shit that we’ve seen so often in fiction? People should have seen it coming a mile away. This is what happens when people let their guard down, because there are always assholes out there trying to f**k us all over.

    The weirdest thing is whenever these same few companies pull this shit, I always see people saying it’s about the money, “they’re just hurting their own business” and they expect those companies to get screwed over and just give up on the authoritarian bullshit. Even people like Styx kept saying “YouTube isn’t stupid”, as if they wouldn’t go this route. But they did, because they have an agenda.

    Do people not realize those few companies already own pretty much everything and have insane amounts of money, or are being funded by corrupt assholes with insane amounts of money, to the point they don’t give a flying f**k about how well their business is doing? Why would they care about business when they basically have control over everything that matters? Go to any website in pretty much any country and they all rely heavily on Google, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, YouTube, etc. All the usual suspects.

    It’s like regular people can only see things in terms of money and profit. Personally, I can’t imagine a bunch of super-rich assholes caring much about getting richer, especially when they’re all working together to push an agenda. The news is like, Bezos became the world’s richest man, beating Gates!! I kinda doubt they themselves give a shit, because they are THAT rich.

    In other news, the Seth Rich thing sounds like it’s going to finally blow up. Blatant bots are trying to spread some bullshit that “Trump and Fox ganged up to make up the Seth story”.

    Something about the investigator Rod Wheeler suing Fox and Trump? But proof is already coming out to debunk him. There’s a recording of Wheeler explaining the details of the investigation that contradicts his lawsuit, and another recording of a Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh apparently confirming that Seth was the leaker. Still reading/listening up on it. None of it is surprising, of course.

    The fact that assholes are trying SO HARD to cover it up, and even desperately trying to attack Trump with it, really seems like the whole Awan brothers and DWS stuff is directly linked to the Seth incident. It’s sad how many people (or shills) are trying to say someone’s death is “fake”, or that it’s okay to literally murder people trying to expose corruption, to “stop Trump”.

    Well, if it happens, it happens. Anyone who’s actually been paying attention to the facts already knows who the guilty parties are. It’s so damn obvious, but the system is THAT corrupt that they’ve been constantly getting away with it.

    It’s as I’ve been saying all along, the corruption that led to GamerGate is just one extension of the huge amount of corruption permeating Western society. Especially emphasized by the same people showing up everywhere.

    What a world, eh? Can’t we all just get along? 🙁

    • durka durka

      Well, i am obviously not from a english speaking country. I live in a shit poor country and yet youtube is filled with ads. The adapocalypse does not apply to my shit poor country. Which hints that advertizers choose wherever to go to youtube or not. So this means that as long as advertizers dont return to youtube, at some point the board of directors will see that their numbers are dropping and will fire the ceo and replace her with someone else. I dont think the “too much money” argument is true. For example look at soros, he doesnt do what he does because he is a progresive he does it to make money, he bets against countries to make money. These very rich people you talking about, obviously dont want the left to take away their stuff and they dont want to lose their privilige, it is their wealth that shields them from having to live with the peasant folk.

      Eventually at some point they will realize that they lose money by what they doing and things will change. But let just say that they managed to force this system down everyone’s throat. What you think will happen? Are people going to accept it? Doubtfull, especially since their lives are getting worse and worse. Too much PC will get booring pretty soon and annoying pretty fast. So you will see politicians like Trump who are anti pc who are tough guys and telling it like it is, who people can identify with thanks to the fact the vast majority of people are not pseudointelectual politicaly corect academia hipsters, will vote for people like this. Look at Peterson, you think he is the only one? No they are many more people like him that will rise to popularity not by youtube but by actual world events.

      All we have to do is claim back our territory from the left. Take it to the streets and protest against political correctness. Dont forget after all that even progressives like secular talk are affected by this.

      This battle will be fought on the streets and in the media. So we need as many non authoritarians in the media which is bound to happen soon enough since the public’s opinion on the media is horrible. What they think they gonna do, are they gonna continue to force everyone to eat up bullshit and no one will react to it? Nope Trump is proof of that. Every action has an equal reaction. They will get whats coming to them.

    • tajlund

      Plus for the totalitarian leftists it is agenda uber alles. They would sacrifice their own children if it would help the agenda progress.

      The funny thing is, this fits with what I’ve said before. They always accuse others of what they are doing. Trump=dystopia, so thus they are the ones trying to create a dystopia.

    • Are they still working with CON and FF too? I figured they would be. They’re all best friends in bed with each other.

      Yep. Still bestest friends.

      Maybe I’m going a little far in suggesting this, but what’s stopping them from trying to erase people in reality via “accidents”, so that we can’t kick up a fuss about being erased online?

      Like Seth Rich? Except… no one on the interwebs will be allowed to talk about something that “never happened”.

      Isn’t it interesting how we’ve gone straight into the dystopian future shit that we’ve seen so often in fiction? People should have seen it coming a mile away. This is what happens when people let their guard down, because there are always assholes out there trying to f**k us all over.

      People are weak and afraid. Most people want to be left alone. Flight or fight; most choose flight.

      People only fight back when forced to.
