YouTube Now Censoring Educational Material on Dangers of Socialism

This is authoritarian fascism at its most frightening.

Published

Youtube

There are serious concerns throughout the United States that our First Amendment is eroding before our very eyes.

This is because we have allowed our most powerful public forums to remain in the hands of technically private companies who have the ultimate, authoritarian control over the content of their platforms….even though you are providing the content for them.

Think of it like this:  The internet is one big TV station, one big newspaper.  We all write for the internet, we all produce content for the internet every time that we update our statuses, release a video, or upload a photo.  Just look in the “terms of service” that you never read:  These platforms own your content, and are selling advertising slots in between your posts.  You don’t see a dime of that money, even though you created the content that sold the advertisement.

This is why censorship on these platforms is unequivocally dangerous:  These internet content farms can pick and choose what gets uploaded and shown to the public on a mass scale, just like the propaganda machines of 1930’s Germany.  Worse yet, you are the one giving them their material and their money.

To add insult to injury, these megalithic and wealthy companies promote the ideals of the liberal left, turning a great many toward the deadly experiment of socialism…while actively censoring educational material on the very subject.

In an article published in TownHall.com, Fox Business pundit John Stossel discusses his experience attempting to publish videos critical of socialism via YouTube and what he learned from the documentary The Creepy Line about how tech giants view privacy matters.

In his article, Stossel outlines his experience when attempting to publish a video about the effects of socialism on the country of Venezuela, which was subsequently removed from YouTube…

Stossel goes on to say the following:

This morning Google told me that it would not allow my YouTube video “Socialism Leads to Violence” to be viewed by young people. It violates “community guidelines,” said the company in a computer-generated email.

My purpose in making the videos is to reach kids, to educate them about the benefits of free markets. It’s why I started StosselInTheClassroom.org, a nonprofit that provides videos, plus teachers’ guides, free to teachers.

If Google and Facebook decide adults should be “protected” from seeing those videos, too, then “Stossel TV” will go dark.

The idea that we should not be educated on every possible facet of a subject as complex as economic policy is absurd and inadequate.

For YouTube to decide that they are the authority on such an expansive ideology only furthers the reality that these companies have grown far too large and powerful to exist without oversight.

Report Shows Joe Biden Paid Women Far Less Than Men During His 35 Years In the Senate

Oh, this seems more than a little interesting…

There are many reasons to not vote for former Vice President Joe Biden. Too many to list here. But as long as Donald Trump is out of office, liberals wouldn’t care if Joe or a trained monkey worked out of the Oval Office. Biden claims that he’s a liberal but his actions over the years tell a different story. He’s not really anything other than ignorant. This report about the 2020 Democrat frontrunner paying women less than men for three and a half decades while a senator from Delaware should have the left in a tizzy. But it won’t. From Free Beacon: Women working for former vice president Joe Biden were paid less than their male counterparts during the entirety of Biden’s 35 years in the U.S. Senate, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. When Biden joined the Senate in 1973, the average pay for a full-time female staffer in his office was $5,029, about 68 percent of the $7,383 average paid to men during that span, according to the secretary of the Senate’s first spending report for the 93rd Congress. A Free Beacon analysis of spending reports covering Biden’s full Senate tenure found that he never achieved gender pay equity. Over the course of Biden’s time in the Senate, women on average earned just 67 cents for each dollar earned by men. Check out the chart: The Free Beacon conducted its analysis using salary disbursements disclosed in the biannual report of the secretary of the Senate. As with previous Free Beacon gender pay gap investigations, only staffers employed for the entirety of any of the six-month pay periods analyzed were included in the calculations. Biden said he’d cure cancer if elected president in 2020. No joke. As if that weren’t bad enough, Biden is now claiming the Obama…

Cruz On Obama’s FBI Targeting Trump: ‘This Was Beavis & Butthead,’ Not ‘Jason Bourne’

Ted Cruz for the win?

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) has forgotten more about politics and American history than most people will ever know. Red, white, and blue runs through his veins. Never one to censure himself, Cruz unloaded on Inspector General Michael Horowitz and taught him a thing or two in the process. It was brilliant. From Daily Wire: On Wednesday, speaking at Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s hearing, Senator Ted Cruz attacked the Obama administration for its supposed ignorance of the actions of the FBI and DOJ that targeted the 2016 Trump campaign, snapping, “This wasn’t Jason Bourne. This was Beavis and Butt-Head.” WATCH: Ted Cruz: This wasn’t Jason Bourne, this was Beavis and Butthead🔥 https://twitter.com/PolishPatriotTM/status/1204839761921421312?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204839761921421312&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fcruz-this-wasnt-jason-bourne-this-was-beavis-and-butthead%2F WATCH: THE FIX WAS IN… FBI official allegedly altered document that was basis for FISA warrant on surveillance of the 2016 Trump campaign. https://twitter.com/CaliforniaPanda/status/1197665317675294722?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197665317675294722&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-fbi-official-under-criminal-investigation-for-altering-document-used-to-start-probe-into-trump-campaign Reactions: And CNN puts it in paragraph 2 – bc this is the most important thing – that Trump will accuse the FBI of wrongdoing in this investigation.
