Today, YouTube clarified how it plans to handle videos that don’t violate any of its policies but still contain offensive religious and supremacist content: hide them and make sure they can’t make any money.In essence YouTube is saying that any speech it doesn't agree with is subject to censorship. I con't care what they call it, it is censorship. I cannot see how Youtube can legally restrict a user video if it violates no terms of service. What is needed here is a law firm to take all of these companies to court and to ask for business ending awards. Yes, business ending. Remember what happened in 2008 when Lehman Brothers was allowed to go under? Yeah, We need a decision that hurts Google/YouTube so badly that it has to shut down operations. This is what is missing today. Stone cold, law enforcement. You have mayors and governors talking about being sanctuary cities and using tax funds to help illegal aliens. All of which is against clearly written law. The US has become one great big scofflaw nation. People simply expect that "the little people" or "those people over there' have to follow the rules and the rest can observe that which they feel are "just". "Just" being whatever the overton window is open to at the moment.
YouTube also announced today that it has added to the list of NGOs it is working with to help determine what content should be hidden. These organizations include the No Hate Speech Movement, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, and the Anti-Defamation League, which recently drew the ire of far-right outlets and pundits by publishing a list of alt right and “alt lite” personas.YouTube (and Twitter) is full of lefty organizations that not only engage in "hate speech" but many times call for outright violence against those they consider "right wing". Yet there are absolutely no consequences.
