Our ruling oligarchs are desperate to regain control of the narrative.
Google-owned YouTube announced on Tuesday that they’ve purged over 17,000 channels, 100,000 videos and a whopping 500 million comments in just three months after changing their rules on “hate speech.”
They also said they’re using AI to censor people for “hate speech” and automatically remove content before it’s even viewed.
YouTube said Tuesday that it has removed more than 100,000 videos marked as hate speech under the platform’s new policy against bigoted and supremacist content.
The video-sharing giant said it removed more than 17,000 channels and 100,000 videos for violating its hate speech policy between April and June — the month in which the policy was instituted — a five-time increase in the number of removals in the first three months of the year.
Google-owned YouTube also said it has removed more than 500 million comments for hate speech, double the amount of removals in the first quarter of the year.
“The spikes in removal numbers are in part due to the removal of older comments, videos and channels that were previously permitted,” YouTube wrote in the post.
Note, they banned thousands of people who followed their rules to the letter for violating the new, entirely arbitrary rules they unveiled in June.
A new protected class by @YouTube: those now immune from criticism due to their “immigration status.” In other words, @YouTube is banning speech critical of illegal immigration. pic.twitter.com/9bersTWNNa

America has no laws prohibiting “hate speech” and courts have ruled repeatedly that “hate speech” is free speech but that hasn’t stopped Big Tech monopolies from censoring people for their political views using their own made-up “hate speech” definition.
YouTube appears to be following their advice.
I reported on Tuesday how the Trump administration is considering partnering with Google, Amazon and Apple in a proposal which may use data collected from in-home listening devices to rate Americans with a social credit score to determine whether they can own a gun.
