    YouTube CRACKS DOWN on Diamond and Silk

    YouTube CRACKS DOWN on Diamond and Silk => Demonetizes 95% of Their Videos ‘For Supporting Trump’

    Pro-Trump personalities Diamond and Silk took to Twitter Thursday, accusing Google-owned YouTube of demonetizing 95 percent of their videos. The pair believes YouTube’s decision was driven by their support for President Trump.

    Washington Times reports:

    “@YouTube @TeamYouTube stopped over 95% percent of our videos from being monetized, stating: ‘It’s Not Suitable For All Advertisers,’” the two said in a series of tweets. “Wonder if @YouTube @TeamYouTube stopped the monetization of our videos because we are loyal supporters of the @POTUS. Hummmm. Sounds like Censorship to us, which is a Violation of our First Amendment. A Bias Method used to Silence our Conservative Voices. @YouTube, how was it OK to monetize our videos for the past two years and now those same videos are no longer eligible for monetization?”

    “We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism,” the company announced Aug. 1 on its official blog. “If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.”

    in YouTube defense they have changed the advertising policy company's that don't want to be associated with 'war' can have there adverts pulled from such channels - wither its is News from Syria, videos about History - WW I / WW II or even videos about 'war games' like World of Tanks or Call of Duty


    I am sure there is a category for 'extreme' politics and someone is lumping Trump Supporters in that pot [want to censor speech you don't like 'flag it as extreme' the automated system handles the rest
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    But ongoing Leftist Riots, Attacks, Property Destruction... I'm sure to them, that's not going to be extreme politics.

    someone needs to educate them, to do not have a 'right' to post anything on someone else's web page

    Google has turned itself into a public utility, so it's very similar to the cable company saying, sorry, you can't have cable because you are a conservative. I would argue that Google is NOT a "private web page" at all.

    And if they're saying Diamond and Silk are "extreme", that just shows how far down the progbot hole they've gone. This is what we get for allowing the Left to take over the internet, but that's a classic Socialist MO: they act all benign and encourage you to grow dependent on it, then they raise their iron fist and start making unreasonable restrictions and controls.
