If for some reason you should find yourself at the Internet site with this URL, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJ7ojSe-wqg&t=21s, what you will find there is not a YouTube video, but a black rectangle bearing this message in white, in the manner of chalk on a blackboard: “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on hate speech. Learn more about combating hate speech in your country.” Below that, in purple, is a “Learn more” click-on.
Doing that, you get:
Hate speech is not allowed on YouTube. We remove content promoting violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on any of the following attributes:
- Gender Identity and Expression
- Immigration Status
- Sexual Orientation
- Victims of a major violent event and their kin
- Veteran Status
What you will not find anywhere, not even if you should challenge the imperious Google-owned YouTube on its determination, is any explanation as to why this particular video falls into the very nebulously defined category of “hate speech.” In fact, a regular viewer can’t even make a guess, because YouTube doesn’t even provide the title of the video that it has taken down.
The odd thing here as that the now YouTube-cursed video had been up on its site since October of 2014 but has only very recently been determined to be unacceptable “hate speech.” The first conclusion that one is likely to jump to is that YouTube must be ratcheting up its censorship regime.
We can rule out the possibility that the video simply escaped the attention of the YouTube folks all these years. That is because we can say with some assurance that YouTube is sufficiently aware of the 2:09 minute video, whose title is “Waxing Indignant over 9/11 Truth,” to suppress the viewer count quite drastically. We know that because that same video, after having been posted on the very obscure video platform of 153News for only nine months, had already received 33,272 views, while YouTube told us that it had only received 2,223 views on its market-dominating platform. (Most recently, 153News reports that the video has been viewed 51,770 times there.)
One can learn all about it by going to my May 2019 article, “YouTube’s Complete Corruption Revealed.” There is a table in the article with DC Dave-connected videos listed that could be found on both. “Waxing Indignant over 9/11 Truth,” by the count of 153News, was (and still is) by far the most popular. One may easily deduce that that would be the case at YouTube as well, but that’s not what they were reporting. It’s not much of a stretch to conclude, in fact, that the video’s true viewer count, known only to YouTube, is the real reason that they’ve decided that they must censor it away, using the spurious “hate speech” excuse. Lord only knows how many people in the United States, indeed, in the world had seen it and found it so convincing that YouTube decided that it simply had to pull the plug. Viewer-count suppression was apparently deemed no longer to be enough.
