[Original article:] …And then they came for the Leftists.
Oh, I’m sorry. I’m getting ahead of myself. For everyone just joining us, let me start at the beginning.
YouTube content creator and feminist Laci Green took a sabbatical from YouTube (which seems to be a growing trend lately) for nearly a year. She recently came back to post up a video on September 4th, 2019 about how she had returned to the platform (albeit briefly) to inform her subscribers about her new podcasting endeavors and getting away from the frittering nature of YouTube.
The video came after a 10 month hiatus for the content creator, whose last upload was from back on November 10th, 2018.
With renewed spirits and an ample sense of purpose, Green decided to share more about her enthusiasm-driven endeavors with her audience, only to find that she could no longer upload videos to her YouTube account.
Green had been suspended.
well, apparently a real life human at YouTube reviewed my case and upheld the ban. no new youtube video today i guess.
i’m so confused i’m starting to wonder if maybe i did impersonate myself pic.twitter.com/BSdGRJfvM8

The suspension occurred on September 17th, 2019.
Laci states that YouTube informed her that her account was suspended for impersonation.
She attempted to appeal, but to no avail.
Laci’s unadvertised boyfriend, Chris Ray Gun, thought he could white knight her account back into good standing with YouTube, but that, too, was to no avail.
The level of incompetence here is actually staggering. YouTube permanently banned Laci for impersonating herself. You can’t make this up. @TeamYouTube what is going on over there? https://t.co/lYr7E5ahTl

As of the writing of this article, Laci Green is still unable to upload videos to her account, and her YouTube access is still suspended.
For anyone who has been following our coverage of the YouTube censorship over the last couple of years, none of this should be surprising or should come as a shock to you. We said this would happen.
YouTube has been cracking down on accounts left and right since June, terminating more than 17,000 accounts and suspending countless others. Many of the channels that have been suspended were completely benign, such as meme channels, national anthem channels, and even historical documentary channels.
The rules keep becoming more and more stringent; changing, morphing, and shaping into this impassable wall of conformity that requires users to shimmy around the edges of this immovable block of censorship without falling to their death.
Lefties and Centrists™ like Chris Ray Gun and Laci Green won’t get it until they’re gone. It’s not a system designed to be fair or even; it’s no longer structured to give you a voice for the voiceless or a platform in which to echo sentiments from the plebs that challenge the status quo.
We’re well past the glory days of YouTube allowing people to get paid for foul-mouthed counter-culture discussions.
Even some of YouTube’s most beloved darlings are starting to feel the pressure under the cold boot of cultural Communism, and they don’t seem to like it much.
