THIS IS HOW YouTube is KILLING FREE SPEECH
On July 6th I received a STRIKE against my You Tube account for an interview I did with researcher Sofia Smallstorm. I uploaded that interview and posted it to You Tube … 22 MONTHS AGO.
You Tube removed the interview two days ago claiming that it violated the community guidelines which prohibit “predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, bullying or intimidation.”
Because the video was removed by You Tube, I can no longer review it, but I can assure you that neither Sofia or I committed ANY of those violations as we lucidly discussed an “event”, a shooting which occurred in Virginia. But since You Tube now acts as the judge, jury and executioner, FACTS no longer matter, only the charges, no matter how unfounded they may be.
And if You Tube can issue a strike against a conversation like that one, they can issue a strike against ANY content at ANY time for ANY reason. And THAT’S how You Tube will KILL free speech: One video – and one channel – at a time.
Thanks for tuning in.
