YouTube Purging ‘Thousands of Videos and Channels’ for Advocating ‘Bigoted Ideologies’

Chris Menahan


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.

The new policy will ban “videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion,” the company said in a blog post. The prohibition will also cover videos denying that violent incidents, like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, took place.

YouTube did not name any specific channels or videos that would be banned.

“It’s our responsibility to protect that, and prevent our platform from being used to incite hatred, harassment, discrimination and violence,” the company said in the blog post.

[…] The kind of content that will be prohibited under YouTube’s new hate speech policies includes videos that claim Jews secretly control the world, those that say women are intellectually inferior to men and therefore should be denied certain rights, or that suggest that the white race is superior to another race, a YouTube spokesman said.

Channels that post some hateful content, but that do not violate YouTube’s rules with the majority of their videos, may receive strikes under YouTube’s three-strike enforcement system, but would not be immediately banned.

The company also said that channels that “repeatedly brush up against our hate speech policies,” but don’t violate them outright, would be removed from YouTube’s advertising program, which allows channel owners to share in the advertising revenue their videos generate.

In addition to tightening its hate speech rules, YouTube announced it would also tweak its recommendation algorithm, the automated software that shows users videos based on their interests and past viewing habits. This algorithm is responsible for more than 70 percent of overall time spent on YouTube, and has been a major engine for the platform’s growth.

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.

We recognize some of this content has value to researchers and NGOs looking to understand hate in order to combat it, and we are exploring options to make it available to them in the future. And as always, context matters, so some videos could remain up because they discuss topics like pending legislation, aim to condemn or expose hate, or provide analysis of current events. We will begin enforcing this updated policy today; however, it will take time for our systems to fully ramp up and we’ll be gradually expanding coverage over the next several months.

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.”

Freedom of speech does not mean freedom to slander.

Freedom of expression does not mean freedom to incite violence against Jews or other minorities.

More needs to be done to keep #hate off their platform, but this a step in the right direction for @YouTube.

Online hate & extremism pose a significant threat. We were glad to share our expertise with @YouTube on updating their policies to keep #hate off their platform. This is an important step forward, but 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.

  1. Here’s Know More News in a fairly short vid with Mark Green exposing the BS Zionist bias from YT and Google…Toward the middle, there’s an interview from some freak transgender Zionist complaining to Google about the ‘hatred’.
    Have no doubt, this is all a Zionist attack against normal white law abiding citizens. It just does not get any more disgusting.
    Please watch it to the end….with Netanyahu and the moron, Zionist controlled Maher….

  2. Does this sound familiar?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQseevpKDqw

    Lenny Pozner seeks out people online discussing Sandy Hook and then files fraudulent DMCA claims hoping the recipient of the claim will return their real name and contact information. Once he has the persons name he runs a background check. He then uses that information to contact a person’s employer and use veiled threats that he will contact the media and let them know they were employing someone that was supposedly harassing a victim of a tragedy. Lenny is hard at work trying to scrub all the evidence of his stalking and organized online harassment campaigns from the internet since the pretext for his lawsuits revolve around him being the victim. A jury needs to know that Lenny actively stalked thousands of people online and is at least in part responsible for whatever animosity came his way.

    1. Tim Pool is brilliant AND an ethical journalist. Trust he is careful, tho…because these folks are out for blood.
      The sad part is that these ‘tricks’ are not illegal…..just unethical.
      I used to think email was a novelty…….now it’s a weapon.
      It’s east to see we are heading toward total control of the Internet.

  3. Hey Jim maybe have your webmaster post a note by the choose file button stating photos do not upload at Facebook speed, allow time for it to happen. I just tried to upload a 20 second slow motion mp4 of the Stem School scam hero laughing his ass off with his mom & pops at the victory lap celebration of his heroic feet of bravery. I waited ten minutes and the progress bar just sits at the same spot forever.

  4. C’mon you hand wringing simps, this is GREAT NEWS. By censoring and declaring certain information as VERBOTEN, the self appointed gatekeepers have only confirmed to Generation Z that there is a war on for their mind. They know that there are alternatives that raise a middle finger to Big Brother, and they will find them easily. I am writing this via the Dissenter browser from Andrew Torba, the creator of GAB, which is a superior version of Twitter. Dissenter also lets you leave comments everywhere on the web without needing to register.
    As far as videos go, most all content creators that matter are already moving to Bitchute (no offense to 153News), which also declares war on censorship, and non-violent viewpoint speech is welcomed. I highly recommend Devon Stack of Black Pilled if you want some distilled vinegar with your tea.

    1. Don’t believe me? Check out battery acid tongued 13 year old Soph who was banned from YT for pouring forth much unvarnished truth – which upset, not joking, three Jewish journalists from Buzzfeed etc who couldn’t handle the sight of an American child in a burka talking smack. One said “journalist”, Talia Lavin, doxxed her and started harassing her father. She had a large following, which followed her to Bitchute. Her video blew up YT and yet she still has an additional 15k+ views after moving it:
      https://www.bitchute.com/video/CbEfkEmVPEpN/

      1. Of course it is, but I also see them as standing with a grenade in one hand and the pin in the other, waiting to see what happens. YouTube monetization of videos caused a horrible decrease in content quality overall because getting new $$ content up became the driving force for many. Demonitization resulted in people only posting when they really had something to offer, but it also loosened the shackles on self-censorship. Now that deplatforming has followed, people are leaving and finding the better content elsewhere.
        The kids already know this. To them, Facebook is “gay” and “lame”, and boomer grannies will be the last accounts to close.

        1. Hey……..I’m a ‘boomer grannie’ and NEVER had a FB account. Of course, neither do I have a cell , a TV or a tweeter/twiddle account. And if I can break this insidious addiction, I’ll bury my comp, also.

          1. I do agree getting off YT is the best thing anyone can do…along with Google, Amazon and whatever other gargantuan corp from which one can flee. I would include Walmart, too if I could afford it. I am tired of having my picture taken when I check out.
            WTF happened to us? Did we all castrate ourselves?

          2. “Castrate ourselves”
            You know, looking at demographics, you could almost make a case for that very thing. Feminism, criticism of Western Civ, the decline of morality in the public square and the chemical onslaught within us have all combined to make many modern American men into willing castrati.

          3. Thanks, Marko…well over 10 years now…do not miss it in the least….and remember at my age, I grew up on black and white TV….Howdy Doody, Captain Video, Flash Gordon and all that.
            (I can hear you saying…what the hell are those…Ha!)

          4. My TV has not been watched in several months…..it sits by the wall,
            covered in dust. I used to watch old movies and even they’re not interesting anymore.

            My sister watches the Hallmark channel…..omg, just shoot me. Drivel on steroids.

          5. Don…they so want us to be under their conditioning. I get at least 4 notices a week in the mail for all sorts of deals for satellite TV. They never give up. Quite a waste of money on me.

    1. Such horrific contrasts. While the current President praises the warriors of 75 years ago and our quest to free Europe from tyranny….the USA is currently being turned into exactly what those soldiers of yesteryear were fighting against.

      If you cannot see the sick hypocrisy, you’re brain dead.

    2. JewTube and all social media are rigged.

      And so is EVERYTHING else:

      https://153news.net/search_result.php?query=space+x&type=Videos&cbsearch=

      And here’s a news item just as ridiculous as the foregoing:
      It appears that Trump’s sabre rattling against Iran was done exclusively at Israel’s direction and without any independent assessment of possible disastrous repercussions because the US position was miraculously reversed after Pompeo went to Bilderberg and now it’s not Iran that is asking for meetings, it’s the White House—— as this article explains:
      https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-05/escobar-great-bilderberg-secret-2019

      1. Just to repeat what I said before regarding Musk and Space X….

        If you believe a Tesla is actually orbiting the ‘cosmos’….please commit yourself.

        1. If one looked closely at the live feed of the Musk ”car in space”, the rocket never achieved escape velocity for earth orbit. The rocket and its payload merely blasted off and quickly crashed into the ocean. People fall for this fraud.

          1. Bingo!
            I would bet the farm if you try to get into that area in the ocean where all these rockets are ‘landing’ you’ll never make it.

  5. Boycott the bastardz.

    Anyone who thinks Zio controlled Trump will stop this is in for a sad awakening.
    Just use other platforms or get a life and do what I will do shortly…get the hell off this insidious device.

    1. You may not be familiar with Owen Benjamin’s YT…it was de-monetized a while back for speaking of those with the little hats….and believe me, he held no punches. This particular vid deals with the idea that Snap Chat now promotes pedophilia, transgenderism et al. Check the notes, he has a separate channel unrelated to YT.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-2SR3COkMQ

        1. Towardrs the end of that vid, Green speaks of going back to sending out videos via snail mail…..that may well be the direction in which we are heading. NO ONE can censor the mail. Years ago, a good friend, Dr. Tom Tvedten used to send out videos re 911 (he may still be doing it…have not checked his site for quite a while) via mail and last I checked, he had sent out 250,000 vids on his own dime. I think folks who really want the info will happily pay for mailing a disk…and the disks themselves are only about 18 cents a piece when on sale. I still have a copier that does 5 at a time and only cost about 150 bucks.
          It may come to this. At the least it could be an interim step.

          1. Here we have a few words from Brother Nathaniel:

            from Bro Nathanael:

            The Jewish censors of YouTube-ADL and SPLC-BANNED 156 of my Videos yesterday.

            Their reason was that I was “Criticizing a Protected Group.”

            Thus my Videos critical of AIPAC, Jewish Lobbies, Judaism, the Media, and Israel, were BANNED.

            Sum and substance?—JEWS are “protected” AS A GROUP from being criticized.

            AS A GROUP Jews can clamor for war, push abortion, promote homosexuality, murder innocent Palestinians and steal their land, and above all, wield insidious influence on Capitol Hill.

            But if you call them out for doing so they’ll shove a gag down your mouth with their “hate speech” meme and continue on with their mischief and malfeasance.

            JEWS are now designated by the information patrol as a “protected group.” How’s that for enlarged power!

            I will be featuring my Videos on BitChute

            Free-speech-hating Jews will NOT stop me. +Brother Nathanael

          2. Creating Jews as a Protected Group is a very bad idea. It actually creates a dangerous situation for Jews because many people will react with anger and resentment. They will seek revenge on Jews.

            Making any group of people ”protected” can backfire in ugly ways. Each ”group” should stand on its own merits. There are good and bad within ALL groups. The actual statistics vary with each group.

  6. All of this follows the agenda of the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird. The goal is to totally control the media.

    They want to strike fear into the heart of anyone who dares to question official government statements or wants to tell the truth. This also trashes the First Amendment. Freedom of speech cannot exist in such an environment.
