The YouTube Purge is Here
YouTube’s politically biased management has begun blatantly censoring, demonetizing and outright restricting those viewpoints that do not conform to their ideological echo chamber.
So just a few days ago I covered a USA Today article that stated: “YouTube says it’s removing terrorist and extremist content faster.”
Once I saw that article I knew that this was the beginning of the YouTube purge. I said “and it’s well apparent that this will lead to the crescendo of it. We see the purging, the cleaning of this major online institution to be more favorable towards corporations and government. That’s exactly what’s happening, and why I think we’re finally reaching the end times of this beautiful and amazing platform.”
That purging has happened quicker than I expected as I woke up this morning to find 660 videos on my channel demonetised. Videos that go back for years primarily attacking the most viewed videos on my channel, the videos that earn me the most amount of revenue. Eviscerating my primary source of revenue for this news organization which came from YouTube advertisements. I tweeted about this, and I actually got a response from the “Team YouTube.”
They replied, “This is a new money icon, doesn’t mean demonetized, that lets you directly appeal videos seeing less ads.” I’m sorry Team YouTube that’s full of horse snot. If you look at my channel of the videos that say “not suitable for all advertisers” that this was “confirmed by manual review.”
This happened to a lot of the 660 videos that were hit. Strangely videos that deal with no controversy at all like My Political Compass Test or even a Live: Dog Cafe in South Korea AMA were targeted and even reviewed and confirmed to be “not suitable for all advertisers.”
Perhaps this has something to do with WeAreChange confronting the former Google CEO and now Alphabet CEO Eric Schmidt when he attended the secretive, elusive Bilderberg meeting. One can only speculate. There is no official explanation for why I just lost my main source of income. While this small independent media organization gets eviscerated by these changes, for some reason CNN still has videos monetized with them eating human brains.
My doing a non-political video with dogs in a cafe in South Korea wasn’t acceptable either since we can’t offend advertisers with that content.
It’s more than unfair for YouTube to change their terms and services arbitrarily. Terms and conditions to which I have followed, and I haven’t even been cursing in any of my videos. Some of them are not controversial at all. Then YouTube invites content creators to this platform, which I joined and put a lot of work towards. I was able to live off
