Update 7/26, 9:50AM EST: It appears that as of this writing YouTube has restored SGT Report’s channel. This is likely at least in part due to the outcry from subscribers.
Editor’s Note: We are most disturbed to find that YouTube has chosen to fully eviscerate the SGT Report channel from its platform with absolutely no true justification. The channel owner also reports that YouTube has even locked him out of his account entirely.
As many already know over the past eight years SGT has established itself as one of the finest alternative sources for political commentary and analysis available online today. At the same time, as its editor points out below, this action is something of a twisted compliment from entities who in their arrogance realize they must resort to overtly silencing those who are repeatedly at an advantage in the court of public opinion.
Ok, I’m feeling fairly devastated at the moment. More than 1,000 videos and interviews and more than 345,000 subscribers, gone. You Tube terminated my You Tube channel this morning by giving me a third ‘community guidelines’ strike within a three month period.
You Tube is worse than Big Brother. In Orwell’s 1984 Winston merely altered history in newspapers to hide the truth, You Tube is deleting history all together.
NaturalNews founder Mike Adams has launched a new website, Real.Video, that he intends to open to various content creators, some of whose work has already faced censorship on corporate-controlled sites such as YouTube and Vimeo.
In this July 6 update Adams explains the need for such an outlet, noting how thus far the Beta version of the project has been deluged with thousands of requests for new accounts. As of this writing a full-fledged version of Real.Video that can accommodate this has yet to be launched.
“Saw blood drips on the floor and stairs”… Then took Uber home!–YouTube staffer
There is definitely some kind of police action / possible shooting at youtube in San Bruno. my brother just and others went running out of the building when hearing firecracker like sounds. 5 police cars came rushing to the scene…
There is an active shooter at YouTube headquarters at the California-based company located around 11 miles south of San Francisco, according to police.
The San Mateo County Sheriff and local San Bruno Police are working together to resolve the situation. Product manager Vadim Lavrusik tweeted that he “heard shots and saw people running while at my desk” but he and some colleagues have been evacuated and are safe at this time.
The police have advised the public to stay out of the area of the offices. Footage posted via Snapchat close to the campus in San Mateo shows some people walking down the street with their hands above their heads and police surrounding the building while wearing tactical gear.
The San Bruno City Manager’s office told BuzzFeed News that the city received several emergency calls from inside the building and the surrounding area regarding gunshots. Police are currently searching individuals who have been evacuated before allowing them to leave the scene to prevent the shooter from blending in with escaping crowds.
Police have released very little information, however, unconfirmed reports from local media said that the shooter is female, and two people are injured.
