Youtube/Google censorship: It’s real

Black Pigeon Speaks has the details.

By NO means do I agree with all of BPS’ positions or statements. To cite just one difference of many: he favors government-run health care (and I don’t).

But I have found that, even where I find his views silly, his videos are good-faith (if somewhat sarcastic) attempts to support his positions with science and facts. That Youtube (which means Google/Alphabet) would censor him – and other content creators who happen to be politically incorrect – while continuing to allow a ton of Islamist terrorist content, is disturbing.

It seems that 4chan pushed back with malware bots that generate fake ad traffic. The fake, extra traffic causes Google/Youtube to overcharge their advertisers, making trouble for everyone. I don’t endorse that tactic at all. Still, one can’t help but admire the goal: to remind Google/Youtube that they, too, depend greatly on the goodwill of others for their fragile existence.

Lots of people seem to be moving to BitChute and Vid.me. But I like the new YouTube: they’ve been letting me watch my favorite content ad-free (since the first step in the censoring the scapegoated content is “de-monetize” it).

Slate: Harvey Response Doesn’t Show America at its Best

The good news coming out of Houston is how people of all races and creeds have been coming together to help each other out. There have been some truly heroic rescues and sacrifices. Most of us are rightfully proud when people come together this way.

The bitter progressive leftists at Slate, not so much.

Disaster scientists have repeatedly punctured the myth, perpetuated by Hollywood and the media, that cataclysm awakens our worst selves. Rather, disruptive events loosen our mores just enough to permit new kinds of compassion ….

[Their] findings put a frame around the cooperative society that has lately emerged in Houston: It is a beautiful anomaly, a liquid note of silver momentarily liberated from its sheath of rust.

It’s a left-wing thing, if you see people feeling good about something, you have to tell them why they really should be bitter, ashamed, and angry about it… and everything else… all the time… forever.

And I bet that line about “a liquid note of silver momentarily liberated from its sheath of rust” really impressed her sophomore year creative writing class.

Pelosi disavows Antifa

Via Cernovich Media:

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement [Tuesday] disavowing alt-left terrorist organization ANTIFA…

“Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts. The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”

Full Pelosi statement here.

Kudos to Pelosi for denouncing Antifa by name. As The Daily Caller says, “This marks the first-time Pelosi has condemned Antifa and is quite possibly the first time she has acknowledged the group’s existence.”

Now, if only we can get Mitt Romney, John McCain, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan to do the same. Remember how their heads exploded when President Trump condemned political violence “on both sides”?

Sidebar: In case any leftie reading this doubts Trump’s full-on condemnation of the KKK, here is a “highlight reel” of him denouncing David Duke many times, over the years:

Also, if you would like, you can still join the whitehouse.gov petition to Formally recognize AntiFa as a terrorist organization.

Yvonne Felarca Flashback: The Feds arrested her in July. And Eric Clanton. So there is a little pushback on Antifa; and maybe we’ll see more.

UPDATE – It’s a trend: Berkeley’s mayor finally denounces Antifa, calling for the police to classify them as a “street gang”.

Arreguin said that while he does not support the far right, it was time to draw the line on the left as well…

Trump – and we – were just ahead of the curve. 😉
