By “all”, we obviously mean all claims coming from Republicans. Media and their Democrats are still free to upload videos alleging that President Trump is a Russian agent and that Russian bots tilted the election for him in 2016. Should they try to make similar claims about President Trump winning Texas due to foreign election interference, voter suppression, or the galactic federation, you can bet that the illegal Big Tech monopoly known as Google or Alphabet won’t interfere.
It will only censor conservatives calling out election fraud. Just like a component of the Democrat oligarchy should.
Under the Orwellian title of “Supporting the 2020 U.S. election” (what the hell does supporting an election mean?) YouTube announced that as part of its job of “connecting people with authoritative information” (technically the role of a propaganda system, not a platform that makes its money from people uploading stolen content, abusing children, or humiliating themselves on camera in the hopes of making a few bucks), the Google platform will now ban allegations of fraud.
“We also disallow content alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. Presidential election,” YouTube falsely claims.
In fact, YouTube has not censored any claims about the 2016 election. Nor is it about to start removing material from Democrats about the 2000 election. The only election it plans to censor fraud claims about is the one handed to the party and ideology it supports.
Sorry George Orwell, don’t bother with any YouTube uploads.
“As always, news coverage and commentary on these issues can remain on our site if there’s sufficient education, documentary, scientific or artistic context,” YouTube argues
In other words, the media’s content and other lefty content alleging fraud in 2000 and 2016 will be allowed to remain.
“Given that, we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections,” YouTube warns.
The obvious question is why. If the election is over, as YouTube claims, and there’s nothing more to discuss, then what’s the harm in discussing it? If discussion won’t change the outcome of the election, then why censor it?
Previous Big Tech censorship arguments had been built around the impact of “misinformation” on the election. Since the election is over, the impact will no longer be on the election.
It’ll be on the government.
What YouTube is really doing is saying that it’s banning content that will undermine Biden and the Democrats.
Shouldn’t all of YouTube’s revenues be treated as an in-kind contribution to the Democrats?
