First Youtube selectively shut down and intimidated conservative videos. So the conservative videos wouldn’t say the obvious and some of the commentors were asking, “Why don’t you just come out and say....” Now Youtube has announced that they will delete or remove videos based on the comments posted below them. This in effect now but now enforce; Youtube will enforce it’s new policy restricting channels based on user comments starting December 18 of this year.
So, commentors beware. Also - how much you wanna bet that libs put vile things in the comments of conservative videos for the express purpose of having them deleted.
SOme have said, “Well it’s their channel, they can do what they want.” ANd in part, they are correct, just as FR is Jim’s channel and he can do what he wants. However, I submit that facebook and twitter are monopolies in that businesses are not considered competitive unless they have facebook page, twitter account, etc. So to pull a channel based on censorship exerts an undue financial pressure. I believe this “hammer” is by design - the left embeds their services until they are considered industry standard and then prevents the conservatives from the market place. Youtube channels direct consumer traffic and the marketplace of ideas to their websites and facebook pages etc.
The natives are restless so the left is posing their censorship as foisted upon them by EU. Not impressed.
It isn’t just shutting down accounts of some and outright banning some comments. They are SYSTEMATICALLY OPPRESSING any content not far left or mindless fluff, by design, to varying degrees.
The Methods and Layers of Censorship on YouTube
This is a lesson of the dangers of AI. They are created by liberally biased Big Tech companies, trained further on far left data sources, and the presented as “neutral” censors and arbiters. No, they aren’t neutral, they reflect the liberal biases baked into the system from conception to deployment.
But people think “oh, it is a computer, it is neutral”. And think we need more of such automation without thinking about the values we’re building into such systems that liberally automate systematic oppression.
