Title: YouTube Begins Purging Alternative Media as the Deep State Marches Toward WW3

If you get your news from mostly far left sources, chances are you’ve heard YouTube and Google are censoring or blacklisting left and progressive sites and content. Conversely, if you get your news from far right sources, chances are you’ve heard YouTube and Google are censoring their content as well. If you want to know which side is being truthful in trying to expose their censorship, it is both of them.

In the last week, we’ve witnessed a massive crackdown on alternative media — the likes of which are unprecedented. Quite literally overnight, YouTube issued a sweeping update and demonetized thousands of video in accounts across the political spectrum.

If you ask Paul Joseph Watson from Infowars.com, it’s because they are cracking down on pro-Trump pages. Pro-Trump personalities Diamond and Silk were also hit with the demonetization purge and they also claim it’s because YouTube is going after Trump supporters.

While both Watson and Diamond and Silk had their videos demonetized, the rabbit hole goes far deeper than just pro-Trump sites.

If it were just pro-Trump videos being hit with the censorship sweep, then why is Luke Rudkowski, founder of We Are Change, also being purged?

The Free Thought Project spoke to Rudkowski Friday and asked if any of his many videos that were clearly critical of Trump were demonetized. He tells us that all of them were.

Rudkowski is most certainly not a participant of the left/right paradigm, nor is he a Trump supporter, but he was hit as well.

We asked Rudkowski what he thought about people claiming that it’s their pro-Trump status getting them censored, here’s what he said:

Obviously that is not the case since it looks like they hit me first and my channel is clearly very critical of Donald Trump for the real reasons that the MSM would never touch.

It’s not just We Are Change and pro-Trump folks either. The folks over at World Socialist Web Site — a far left organization with a clearly advertised agenda — is also being hit.

According to a scathing report from wsws.org, they aren’t alone either. Google, YouTube’s owner, has reportedly undertaken a similar attack on alternative viewpoints. As wsws reports,

Truthout, a not-for-profit news website that focuses on political, social, and ecological developments from a left progressive standpoint, had its readership plunge by 35 percent since April. The Real News , a nonprofit video news and documentary service, has had its search traffic fall by 37 percent. Another site, Common Dreams , last week told the WSWS that its search traffic had fallen by up to 50 percent.

“This is political censorship of the worst sort; it’s just an excuse to suppress political viewpoints,” Robert Epstein, a former editor in chief of Psychology Today and noted expert on Google, told wsws.

Those who’ve been paying attention predicted this crackdown and watched it come to a head at the beginning of this month when the Anti-Defamation League applauded Google and YouTube for taking on hate speech and extremist content while having the ADL be the ones who decide what gets flagged.

“The fight against terrorist use of online resources and cyberhate has become one of the most daunting challenges in modern history,” said Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO. “Google has been a leader in this area from the beginning. The reality is extremists and terrorists continue to migrate to and exploit various other social media platforms. We hope that those platforms can learn from and emulate what YouTube is doing to proactively identify and remove extremist content.”

For those that don’t know, last year, the ADL labeled the cartoon, Pepe the frog, a symbol of hate. This irrational behavior is hardly indicative of a third party who ostensibly possesses the skills to determine what people should and shouldn’t see online.

Given these recent moves, we can infer that what is likely happening is far more insidious than pro-Trump censorship or pro-left censorship. While the ADL is likely using their newfound authority to silence those with whom they disagree politically — by labeling them extremists — this new censorship appears to go after anyone who challenges the establishment.

Disagreeing with the status quo is the new hate speech.

Those who challenge the corporate government paradigm are being lumped in with extremist groups and being flagged as hate speech. Sadly, only those who get their information from these alternative sources who are unafraid of challenging the oligarchy will even know this is happening.

It takes years of hard work to build a platform that is able to break through the static shoved out by the mainstream media and reach people still plugged into the matrix. However, once they see the establishment for what it is, this cannot be unseen. The powers that be know this and appear to be moving in to stop it.

Imagine if you never came across alternative media that challenged your thought process and made you question the government. Imagine if you never ‘woke up’ to the atrocities committed by the state on a daily basis. Imagine where you’d be right now without that information. Now, imagine that information is snubbed out forever. Is that a world you want to live in?

We didn’t think so.

If ever there were a time for people to get over their political, religious, racial, sexual, or any other differences — it is now. While we may disagree on different issues, if any one group is allowed to be silenced, it is only a matter of time until everyone else is silenced too.

What makes freedom work is the ability for contrasting ideas to be presented — even if you find them repugnant. When we stop the dissemination of ideas, only one idea prevails and it is certainly not freedom.

The good news is that many have seen this day coming and have made moves to combat it. One such move is the social media platform Steemit. 

This uncensorable network is a blockchain-based social media platform where anyone can post and read what they want — and even earn money. It works in a similar fashion to Reddit; however, instead of being banned or censored for posts, if other users like your content, you make money.

As the deep state continues to tighten its grip on humanity, we need to continue to resist through outlets like this one. Also, it has never been more important to inform your family members and friends of the blatant censorship taking place under their noses. Please, encourage them to seek out alternative media and bookmark it as those like Google, YouTube and Facebook — who have a monopoly on the dissemination of information — may make it all but impossible to find in the near future.

For now, Americans, along with the rest of the world, would do well to remember these most powerful words by the German journalist and poet, Christian Johann Heinrich Heine, “Dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.”

Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.

Are you shitting me? No comments...NO COMMENTS. Will there even be a whimper when the people feel the throat being separated from the neck?

Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

It is somewhat ironic that his promotion that we use Steemit over YouTube political censorship (which is indeed alarming) includes a YouTube video.

Indeed, glancing at the site, all of the videos that I saw posted there were all YouTube. So how exactly does posting on Steemit address videos being censored?

In terms of posting text, well we already have this place that I've known and trusted for many years.

Just wait until you create a seriously candid post and you are banned. I wager you will alter your opinion.

I've been a member here for a very long time.

I have zero expectation of Stone banning me. I don't post a lot, much less spam the forums. I don't post obscenity or other objectionable stuff. And since I tend to agree with Stone politically, even if he were to begin some "political purge" I would not likely get banned for my political stances.

It was my main reason for coming here when FR was banning people for supporting immigration enforcement -- LOL, now that Trump is President FR is pretending that they've been in favor of tough border enforcement all along. I was banned from there for a single post criticizing Dubya for his open borders policy.

But such is the nature of the internet. If we post in someone elses' internet "house", we have to play by their rules. If we don't like their rules, then we find a new place. That's why I came here and am comfortable here.

IMO, Luke Rudkowski is a fabulous journalist, one of the best!


*** When you click on the links you can actually see the personal stories that I am talking about***

Hey my name is Luke Rudkowski founder of WeAreChange, if you haven’t heard from us we are a fully independent news organization that has faced and confronted the most sinister corrupt bankers and politicians. From David Rockefeller, Lord Jacob Rotchild , Henry Kissinger (5x’s he hates us) Tony Blair, Ben Bernanke and many more. We have looked them in the face, eye to eye and asked the most important questions that send them scrambling, running away and sometimes even arresting me for just asking the question.

I have traveled to the most dangerous and scariest places in the world and reported in the murder capital of the world Caracas Venezuela, I went inside the no-go zone in Fukushima Japan, I volunteered, fundraised and did everything I could for the children living in object poverty in Manila, Philippians and I am always in the middle of action during any civil unrest happening in the world. For my work I have been arrested several times, even though I never committed a crime, was never found guilty and have a clean record. I have faced serious death threats, intimidation, harassment and entrapment. I have had a gun to my head by the DHS, been physically assaulted and hurt by the authorities and told that if I continue my work with WeAreChange that I would lose my life. Oh yeah I’m also banned from Canada arbitrarily because of my work, but its only Canada so its OK, lol.

I do this with full faith to document the truth to the people and show them what’s really happening in the world.. I did this with no budget and no money, sacrificing any possible human comfort to make it happen. I get travel vouchers, sleep on couches, I’ve hitch hiked, sometimes even sleeping in the streets just to get a good story for my audience. Now with the latest censorship efforts by google, whose CEO we confronted at the Bilderberg Group. We are seeing our posts censored, monetization diminished and countless numbers of fans who say they never get notifications of our work anymore. I had a page that I and my friends started on Facebook that had over 750,000 fans, which was just taken away from me one day without notice and transferred into the hands of a Viacom TV channel. I am sick of it and won't take it anymore.

So that’s why we are here, being immune to censorship and having value for the tireless sometimes life threatening work that I do brings a huge sigh of relief for me that things will always work themselves out. That the good will always prevail over the bad and that the real power is within us the people to be the change that we want to see in the world. Having this on the block-chain which means it will never be destroyed, censored or deleted is something incredible, amazing and game changing. I am all in. So expect more posts from us on here. I’m here with hope and optimism like always knowing that the power is within us and that there is nothing that can stop the free human spirit.

Blockchain tech.... meaning a decentralized medium of authority. It'll have a lot of good uses.
