YouTube's New Rules Now Ban The Majority Of Americans From Expressing Their Political Views

YouTube under CEO Susan Wojcicki announced Wednesday they're going to ban all content "alleging widespread fraud or errors" changed the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

From YouTube:
Since September, we've terminated over 8000 channels and thousands of harmful and misleading elections-related videos for violating our existing policies. Over 77% of those removed videos were taken down before they had 100 views.

We also work to make sure that the line between what is removed and what is allowed is drawn in the right place. Our policies prohibit misleading viewers about where and how to vote. We also disallow content alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. Presidential election. However in some cases, that has meant allowing controversial views on the outcome or process of counting votes of a current election as election officials have worked to finalize counts.

Yesterday was the safe harbor deadline for the U.S. Presidential election and enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect. Given that, we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections. For example, we will remove videos claiming that a Presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come. As always, news coverage and commentary on these issues can remain on our site if there's sufficient education, documentary, scientific or artistic context.
Many people, including myself, wondered whether Big Tech was going to back off after Joe Biden was installed or ramp up their censorship to Bolshevik levels. That's question has now been answered.
We also showed information panels linking both to Google’s election results feature, which sources election results from The Associated Press, and to the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) "Rumor Control" page for debunking election integrity misinformation, alongside these and over 200,000 other election-related videos. Collectively, these information panels have been shown over 4.5 billion times. Starting today, we will update this information panel, linking to the "2020 Electoral College Results" page from the Office of the Federal Register, noting that as of December 8, states have certified Presidential election results, with Joe Biden as the President-elect. It will also continue to include a link to CISA, explaining that states certify results after ensuring ballots are properly counted and correcting irregularities and errors.
YouTube also announced they're working tirelessly to stamp out the last remaining vestiges of free speech still on their platform:
Over 70% of recommendations on election-related topics came from authoritative news sources and the top recommended videos and channels for election-related content were primarily authoritative news. In fact, the top 10 authoritative news channels were recommended over 14X more than the top 10 non-authoritative channels on election-related content.

Despite these encouraging results, we recognize there's always more to do. For example, while problematic misinformation represents a fraction of 1% of what's watched on YouTube in the U.S., we know we can bring that number down even more. And some videos, while not recommended prominently on YouTube, continue to get high views, sometimes coming from other sites. We're continuing to consider this and other new challenges as we make ongoing improvements.
If you combine these rules with YouTube's earlier restrictions on "hate speech" that banned immigration patriotism and criticism of transgenderism and their new restrictions on questioning the corona vaccines, Susan Wojcicki has effectively banned the majority of the country from expressing their political views.

Polls show around 75 percent of Republicans believe the 2020 election was stolen as well as 30 percent of Democrats.

While these rules obviously will only go one way, plenty of Democrats also believe Trump stole the election from Hillary Clinton in 2016 with the help of the Russkies.

RSNB announced on Wednesday they will no longer be able to stream most events as a result of Wojcicki's new rules.

While the majority views of the American people are now banned, Susan Wojcicki is shoving transgender propaganda down our throats and targeting children with it, which not only the majority of American reject but the majority of the world.

As Tucker Carlson noted on his show Wednesday night, there's indicators suggesting YouTube and Google's own rigging of search results may have "stolen" the election by shifting around 6 million votes to Joe Biden.

Whether Big Tech will succeed in thought-policing the entire world still remains to be seen.

There's a lot of YouTube alternatives popping up which allow free speech and they're getting massive traction.

If the majority of Americans switch to alternative platforms like BitChute they're going to start being exposed to more powerful, radical views and the incentive for folks to bite their tongues when it comes to criticizing our parasitic elites is going to disappear.
