Google Daughter Youtube Suppressing Political Content

After I reported on Google’s attempt to suppress independent voices here, I have yet to address the behavior of its daughter company YouTube. A number of the video platform’s big stars, probably most famously Dave Rubin, have addressed the issue of politically motivated ‘demonetization’ again and again. YouTube’s business model is to intercept videos with advertisement and let content providers earn a slice of the revenues. The word ‘demonetization’ means that a video is not interrupted with ads even though duration and popularity would pay off. Content providers who upload videos critical of Islam or freakish aspects of the political left, are informed about it. We are not dealing with rumors. Now, YouTube openly says that their censorship efforts are going even beyond that in future.

YouTube works hand in gloves with 15 dubious organisations flagging content and listens to the rage of the (usually left-wing) mob. Among those 15 advisors is the No Hate Speech Movement, a campaign run by the Youth Department of Europe, which belongs to the Council of Europe. In other words it is the Council of Europe, an organisation composed of a slew of Asian despots and members of the European Union, who is telling Google what to hide, de-fund and deface.

As a consequence such videos will no longer be recommended, can no longer be liked and will be kept behind an ‘interstitial’ (whatever that will look like). Since we are talking Google here, they also announced to alter their search to let users end up with what YouTube ‘recommends’ to them.
