Twitter wants to regulate the kind of speech that’s allowed on its platform. But there will be some backlash from those who are banned.
After numerous liberal videos have been downvoted by millions, YouTube is considering tactics to combat “dislike mobs.” Embarrassing cases such as YouTube’s famous 2018 Rewind and Gillette’s “anti-male” commercial have proved that the site has millions of users who don’t don’t share its progressive ideology.
YouTube announced it is restricting more videos — including “borderline content and content that could misinform users in harmful ways.” The platform has a bad history of policing content.
Two free speech YouTubers from the UK have been demonetized for unclear reasons. UK Free speech icons Tommy Robinson and Markus Meechan (aka Count Dankula) have both been financially cut off by YouTube, destroying their ability to make money on the platform. English Defense League founder Tommy Robinson predicted (in the video he was demonetized for), “Now they want to take away my ability to even make videos for you. There’s one thing the establishment will hate and they hate a voice making noise… What they really hate, is political opposition”
Yesterday Gillette decided to use its authority as “The Best a Man Can Get” to school men in the art of proper post-#MeToo behavior. In an ad brimming with PC condescension, the shaving company held men in general accountable for the existence of “toxic masculinity.” In short, many people are not happy about it. BBC reported that Gillette is currently receiving major backlash and a wide boycott of its brand.
YouTube admitted it was militant about removing and censoring content this year. Between July and September, YouTube removed 58 million videos, 1.67 million channels, and 224 million comments for violations including inappropriate content or spreading “hate speech.”
YouTube wants to celebrate its political bias. A whole year’s worth. This annual YouTube Rewind, once praised as a homage to YouTube’s most influential creators, memes, and music, has become a left-wing politicized fiasco.
A recent gaffe at YouTube has proved that human censors can be just as bad as robots at distinguishing between hate speech and satire. This past Wednesday in November 2018, Youtube had to undo the removal of a satire video dating back to the second World War.
Aren’t all the funny people supposed to be on the left? They’re certainly not hanging out with YouTube producers Friend Dog Studios, which has produced an anti-conservative spoof of Christ’s teachings that’s as predictable and unfunny as DNC talking points.
It was inevitable that it would happen so why did it take so long? What? A Michael Avenatti parody.
The reason for the inevitability of the Avenatti parody commercial created by Tom Elliot, the founder of Grabien Media is that Avenatti has been so ubiquitous on television. NewsBusters on June 15 reported that Michael Avenatti made 173 television interview appearances since just March 7 of this year. Add in his appearances since June and Avenatti must have reached a total of over 200 and still counting.
No consent. No disclosure. No escape. For legions of unwitting students and teachers across the country, this is the dangerous, de facto data policy Google has imposed over their school districts. An estimated 80 million students and teachers are now signed up for free “G Suite for Education” accounts (formerly known as Google Apps for Education); more than 25 million students and teachers now use Google Chromebooks. A Google logon is the key to accessing homework, quizzes, tests, group discussions, presentations, spreadsheets and other “seamless communication.”
A new study of YouTube exposed what it called a “conspiracy ecosystem” of content creators that tried to connect prominent conservatives with a well-known racist and package them together as “far-right” or “reactionary” “extremists.”
