Google-owned YouTube is planning to purge "thousands of videos and channels" which advocate "bigoted ideologies" or "claim Jews secretly control the world," deny "that well-documented violent events, like the Holocaust" took place, "say women are intellectually inferior to men and therefore should be denied certain rights," or "suggest that the white race is superior to another race."
Multiple channels were banned in the immediate aftermath of the announcement.
From New York Times, "YouTube to Remove Thousands of Videos Pushing Extreme Views":
YouTube announced plans on Wednesday to remove thousands of videos and channels that advocate for neo-Nazism, white supremacy and other bigoted ideologies in an attempt to clean up extremism and hate speech on its popular service.Here's how YouTube put it on their own blog:
Today, we're taking another step in our hate speech policy by specifically prohibiting videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status. This would include, for example, videos that promote or glorify Nazi ideology, which is inherently discriminatory. Finally, we will remove content denying that well-documented violent events, like the Holocaust or the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, took place.The Anti-Defamation League praised YouTube's censorship purge, said they're working together with Google-owned YouTube and other tech companies "to aggressively counter hate on their platforms" and said this "important step forward ... must be followed by many more."
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently unveiled similar censorship rules banning all "praise, support and representation of white nationalism and separatism," though his company said they would still allow other race-based nationalist and separatist movements on their platform.
Facebook had said previously they were against banning white nationalism and white separatism because they felt that under the same rules they'd also have to ban Zionism and black separatism.
Reports are already pouring in of channels being banned.
Massive channels like Stephen Crowder's have been demonetized:
A history teacher from the British School of Bucharest was also banned just for having historical videos of Nazi speeches on his channel:
Make no mistake, leftists will be allowed to spew virulent hate without any interruption:
This is only a one way street.
UPDATE: Holy f**king s**t:
I assure you, this was planned long before Maza's little spat, but that idea is just hilarious.
UPDATE III: The purge keeps expanding:
