Youtube Undertaking New Censorship Program in Cooperation with ADL

Even if Google and Youtube are private companies, there’s a free speech issue in play with today’s announcement because they are unregulated public utilities, according to Trump policy adviser Steve Bannon.

Mike Cernovich, Mark Dice, and Paul Joseph Watson may be affected by this new policy. More hard core thinkers on the right, such as Jared Taylor, Richard Spencer, Tara McCarthy, and Varge Vikernes, are really likely to see damage done to their effort to communicate.

Since the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) considers realistic assessments of race and religion to be hate, the involvement of the ADL in this program bodes ill for our ability to find the information we need.

Content creators on YouTube who follow all of the site’s rules may still face censorship by the platform, under new plans announced by Google.

According to a post on YouTube’s official blog, videos will now be subject to the rule of the mob. If enough users flag a video as “hate speech” or “violent extremism,” YouTube may impose restrictions on the content even if it breaks none of the platform’s rules.

We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.

YouTube has also rolled out a “trusted flagger” program, in which 15 “expert NGOs and institutions” to help them identify hate speech and extremism on their platform.

Among these organizations are the No Hate Speech Movement, a left-wing project pushed by the Council of Europe, as well as the Anti-Defamation League, an organization whose president has been accused of “manufacturing outrage” by the World Jewish Congress.

YouTube is also planning to artificially alter its search results so that searches for “sensitive” topics on YouTube no longer return the most popular videos, but a “playlist of curated YouTube videos that directly confront and debunk violent extremist messages.”

The platform also plans to artificially promote videos created via its “Creators for Change” program, which, in YouTube’s words, features creators who are “using their voices and creativity to speak out against hate speech, xenophobia and extremism.”

We’ve started rolling out features from Jigsaw’s Redirect Method to YouTube. When people search for sensitive keywords on YouTube, they will be redirected towards a playlist of curated YouTube videos that directly confront and debunk violent extremist messages. We also continue to amplify YouTube voices speaking out against hate and radicalization through our YouTube Creators for Change program. Just last week, the U.K. chapter of Creators for Change, Internet Citizens, hosted a two-day workshop for 13-18 year-olds to help them find a positive sense of belonging online and learn skills on how to participate safely and responsibly on the internet.

YouTube framed its blog post around fighting “terror content,” yet their announcement also strays into areas that have nothing to do with fighting terrorism, like the company’s diversity efforts. The blog post boasts about YouTube’s involvement with the “Creators for Change workshop” in which “creators teamed up with Indonesia’s Maarif Institute to teach young people about the importance of diversity, pluralism, and tolerance.”

  1. Is it O.K to call it Jew Tube NOW? Once again this just proves the Jew interference and control over our world. Kind of funny that Zio asslickers like Cernovich & P J Watson are being harassed…I want to be one of those censors ..wrong DNA though!

  2. I spend a lot of time on JewTube as do many millions of right-thinking evil YT’s. If JewTube and the poor persecuted jews want to practice censorship, there is much more on the Internet to entertain one’s self. Once their shekels are impacted, they will change their tune.

  3. “So that’s why it’s called YouTube. Because only YOU will see your own videos.”
    –Reply I saw in the above tweet.

    Lol, good one. But seriously, that is some nasty stuff right there from the Goog/YouTube. Of all people, NGO’s & LEFTIE haters are going to be the decision-makers, right.

    This will not turn out well. What about all the WW2 truth videos, the Protocol videos, etc.? If YT starts today, they will probably censor half of the videos at their site if not more.

    Total Abandonment, zero visitors to their site, not one single click for a day, a week, a month. Everyone on the web, in, rebellion, should boycott YouTube for at least an entire month ASAP just so their ad income crashes to the pits.
