Posted on 05/07/2007 11:03:45 AM PDT by blam
YouTube has apparently posted a racist video using Rush's audio spoof "Barak The Magic Negro." Rush just said "Take It Down Now!!! Let's see what happens now.
Does anyone know how to save the video before it disappears?
It’s probably a copyright violation, and YouTube will comply.
if you have a You Tube acct, you can click an option to have the video suspended ending review.
2:12 and it’s still there...
they will take it down but just veeeeeeery slowly. They want to give everyone enough time to download it and post it on their sites.
I'm quoting Rush, we do audio, not video. It's not ours. The audio has been around for a while, apparently the video is new.
That’s funny. Of course, all the usual suspects are out claiming racism, et al.
Okay. I stand corrected.
Rush made it sound like it had just gone up on YouTube within the hour.
(LOL, I'm glad I didn't put it in 'Breaking News')
Youtube is owned by Google. While they claim that they prohibit “offensive” content, they are selective in their enforcement. Michele Malkin has had her clips deleted by their choice (not hers) and also moved to “adults only” content.
This is an unauthorized video, so on the copyright violation grounds, Youtube has to be “consistent” and remove the video.
The URL for the video is politicalpartypoop.com which is a black conservative website.
Come on Rush!
The video is great.
Leave it on You Tube!
VideoDownloader is a free program that may work.
Also, if you played it through your browse, you probably have the temp file on your computer already.
Do the following:
Do a search using ‘today’ as the search perimeter. Then, sort the results by Date/Time. Look for any file that is near the time you played the video through your browser.
On my computer, the file is:
E56BDFFCd01 with no extension. It is 5,382 KB in size.
If you have that, or a similar file that is exactly 5,382 KB, copy it to some other directory [I use a Temp directory on my computer].
After you copy the file, simply rename it by adding the .FLV extension.
Try playing it in your default FLV player. If it is the correct file, it will play.
You can use other programs to convert the FLV file to AVI or MPG.
“Barack The Magic Negro” Plays on Rush. And he is still on the air?

Just like the guy in Iraq singing about the Iraqi girl. Youtube wasn’t real vigilant about keeping that clip off the net. They CAIRed too much.
