Youtube is Deleting Iconic Videos - Idiotic New Policies

  • Published on Dec 11, 2019
  • RUclip has consistently been tightening the vice when it comes to what you can and cannot say. This latest policy shift, essentially says, flat out... that they will ban creators for being critical of others. There is even a direct backdoor, to ban creators even if they literally did not violate any policies.
    RUclip is taking an authoritarian helicopter parent approach that is pathetic to see.

    An alternative platform of support is Patreon, or simply following on twitter to see new video notifications without RUclips flawed bell system.

      @ddrfr33k Absolutely this! People are saying jump from one centralized system to another, but that's just picking which monopoly you want. Decentralization is the key.

      My another YT channel got shadow banned, because your fanboys didn't like that I had an unpopular opninion about your recent video. I'm pretty sure they've marked my comments as a spam. All because I wanted to make people stop falling into WE vs THEM mentality.
      Apparently your fans love censorship.

    I disagree with, "Intellectual dishonesty used by mentally inferior people." There can be a lot of reasons for intellectually superior people to implement policies that are intellectually dishonest. They could be financially compromised, like the researchers who propped up big tobacco or the current mainstream media folks, as opposed to being mentally inferior. I understand that you're being hyperbolic in support of your own ideologies but the inaccuracy bugs me.

    What strikes me as the most harmful aspect of this mess is that a large corporation is appropriating progressive discourse and rhetoric as a means to silence anyone for any reason its capitalist machinations deem suitable. This has shaped the discourse to turn people against progressivism and perceived leftism by associating it with the actions of a large corporation. This creates pipelines for many progressive causes to extremely reactionary ideology. Anti-capitalism and consumer advocacy is driven down the edgelord-to-altright pipeline, and social justice causes are driven down a pipeline to neoliberalism and away from any productive line of discussion.

    Google's policies have shaped discourse to such a degree that genuine progressive causes are stunted, made useless to their original intentions and made to serve the ends of reaction.

    Accounts with confirmed comments of discrimination and hate speech will be deleted.
    The dislike button is removed. Why? Because it's a way of hate speech and discrimination.
    Videos that lack representation is automatically demonetized.

    If this ever happens, I'll really just build an underground bunker and isolate myself. Better die alone than die retarded.

    iDubzz is an asshole, but I support his right to mock anyone he wants and to say whatever he wants. RUclip is shooting itself in the foot again. It's kicking the creators that made it good. As for their policy for hate speech policy regarding veterans, I get where they're coming and I think it's done in good principle, but it still shouldn't exist. Nobody should be protected against criticism and so-called "hate speech".

    Sorry if this is somewhere else in the comments, but I couldn't find it after trolling the comments for a few minutes. Veteran status is usually a U.S. government defined protected status. RUclip is still following the party line. For example, one of my duties at work is hiring. Federal law prohibits discriminating against a candidate based on: age, gender, race, religion, veteran status, pregnancy, disability, bankruptcy, genetic information, or citizenship. There are definitely carve-outs in the laws that allow discrimination based on some of the general protected attributes (not being able to hire illegal immigrants, or not hiring someone with multiple bankruptcies to be an account manager at a bank, or not hiring an Iranian national with a green card to be head of security and weapons at your firm are a few cases where you can discriminate based on protected attributes).
    I'm not saying the YT policy isn't dumb, but it definitely isn't unique to YT. Look at any forum about HR or hiring, and you'll see all of the same attributes pop up. Even if an attribute isn't protected, most companies will play it safe when it comes to discrimination if it could be reasonably argued that the employer attacked a protected attribute. Somewhat comically, it's next to impossible to prove discrimination based on a protected attribute, so most cases filed with the EEOC side with the defendant rather than the plaintiff. Which actually does lead to a lot of employers discriminating based on protected attributes because they can reasonably argue their decision was based on something else. For example, not hiring a woman because she is pregnant, but saying you didn't hire her because there were more qualified candidates.
    Ironic anecdote time. I once interviewed for a disabled persons service coordinator position for the federal government. I was passed over for the job because my own disability would prove a minor barrier to some of the duties; in this case, they passed me over because I'm not supposed to lift more than ten pounds regularly in my daily duties. I actually appreciated the hiring manager being honest as to why I didn't get the job, but I also enjoyed pointing out to him that what he did was both a violation of federal law, and ironic since the job was for a position to help disabled people find jobs.

    So I think there may be some misinterpretation of "protected attributes" in this discussion. The term generally refers to the protected classes as enumerated by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its subsequent additions. All listed are already protected in the employment sphere under federal law. This does not relate, however, to the earlier list that discusses veteran status and thus, choice of profession (though the United States has ample laws protecting veterans from discrimination, these are not relevant to this discussion).
    That said, great video. I really appreciate the content you and the few creators like you produce

    "Iconic" shouldn't be any kind of excuse for why rules are doled out differently to different creators. Sub count/view numbers shouldn't be any factor when this stuff is brought up. The user you highlighted uses racial slurs among other things that would get anyone below a certain sub count/view count kicked from the platform but for some reason people up in arms about the rules being rolled out with any kind of consistency when that was being called for over the past several years.

    1984 was yesterday; the dystopian times we live in reek of blatant fascism and censorship. This is sickening and infuriating to say the VERY LEAST. These ideologues openly practice thought-control trough policing of speech. This is NOT the “free western culture” we once were proud of. If a few much too powerful psycho- and sociopaths and ultra leftists activists can put themselves in charge of what is allowed to be said and thought, and people are brutally silenced, violent reactions are the outcome.

    Even though he violated Twitter's guidelines by actively promoting and endorsing Assault and Battery by throwing milkshakes laced with quick drying cement at anyone who has difference in political opinion !

    There's no way they are going to enforce this fairly... because if they did, big names like CNN and pretty much every "mainstream" news site, late night show, and other such content would have to be removed. After all, CNN's Don Lemon made a racist statement against (according to this policy) a protected group. MTV's Francessca Ramsey routinely (don't know if Decoded is still on) shows that pretty much boiled down to "F--k white people".
