Yeah, YouTube is a private corporation, but they work for the deep state and are preparing Leftist mind control for them.
Leftist mind control occurs when a supposedly open platform is actually a way to apply counterfeit social pressure on all non-Leftists.
YouTube is no different than the rest of Silicon Valley’s political culture. To them, “diversity” means censoring views they don’t like and “free expression” means a platform to empower the grievance industry to bully conservatives. That was the Utopian dream these people had for the World Wide Web.
But it hasn’t worked out like they hoped. Instead, the mainstream media got defeated by the alternative media and conservative (and non-conservative but definitely anti-mainstream) voices absolutely triumphed. The election of Donald Trump was one sign of that. Another is that no one can make a Leftist propaganda video on YouTube without being thoroughly refuted and humiliated by a dozen video commentators.
YouTube announced yesterday, “An update on our commitment to fight terror content online.”
A little over a month ago, we told you about the four new steps we’re taking to combat terrorist content on YouTube: better detection and faster removal driven by machine learning, more experts to alert us to content that needs review, tougher standards for videos that are controversial but do not violate our policies, and more work in the counter-terrorism space.
We wanted to give you an update on these commitments:
Here are a couple of those updates (emphasis added):
More experts: Of course, our systems are only as good as the the data they’re based on. Over the past weeks, we have begun working with more than 15 additional expert NGOs and institutions through our Trusted Flagger program, including the Anti-Defamation League, the No Hate Speech Movement, and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. These organizations bring expert knowledge of complex issues like hate speech, radicalization, and terrorism that will help us better identify content that is being used to radicalize and recruit extremists. We will also regularly consult these experts as we update our policies to reflect new trends. And we’ll continue to add more organizations to our network of advisors over time.
Tougher standards: 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. We’ll begin to roll this new treatment out to videos on desktop versions of YouTube in the coming weeks, and will bring it to mobile experiences soon thereafter. These new approaches entail significant new internal tools and processes, and will take time to fully implement.
If you are committed to believing that there is a White Supremacist groundswell that is responsible for Donald Trump winning the White House, then you will have no problem with these “experts.” But sane people know that this is pure Leftist/Globalist censorship. YouTube is going to become a place where no one is heard outside that Globalists/Left-wing/pro-pansexual population unless they restrict themselves to cat footage.
And this will all become a matter of law as soon as Democrats win back the presidency. The FCC will implement policies that won’t be “extreme” (they will say) because they will be in line with what social media is already doing.
Google’s YouTube is going to be the Progressives’ echo chamber amplifying their views by a manufactured consensus and thus becoming a tool for Leftist mind control.
