The internet censorship thread

RE: Youtube, Google, and the new age of censorship

^^That guy is one of the friendliest, nicest people on Youtube and he has a big audience. He is now in a position where if he gets two more so-called "violations" they will shut down his channel.

Sounds like everybody needs to start going back to their own sites.

Yes. Since Google/YouTube is not standing up for their content creators it is forcing a lot of them to reevaluate their relationship with Google. Even more so if the content creators are forced off of YouTube. It is going to lead to a lot of them leaving YouTube and either partnering up with a new site/app that has their back or just setting up their own site. Combine that with Patreon/crowd funding and they don't really need YouTube anymore.

Hopefully Trump does something about these monopolies. (Google, youtube, facebook, twitter.) Give them the AT&T ma bell treatment. They control so much of the market that launching a competitor isn't particularly feasible, and whoever launches one will almost certainly take the blood money to fold it into the monopoly.

Doesn't appear to be something his administration is interested in. The wall is number one but this is pretty high up there, even jobs come after in that these sites have so much power over public opinion they will get an anti-job person (big business Republican, big government Democrat) elected as the next president.

^ I think Youtubers have to realize that they are at war with the mainstream media and "press" such as WSJ. I think getting mad at youtube for the changes they're forced to make is a bit misguided because they run a company thats already unprofitable... she gotta kiss as much advertiser ass as possible to try to attract more and make it profitable... They have to hit WSJ in their pockets cause at the end of the day that's what matters

He posted an update video. Things are still suspicious, however, and the reporting is misleading.

Is it just the user base that protects Youtube from competitors? Surely in today's world with the ease of use for smart phone devices, etc. - it can't be that difficult for users to migrate to other platforms. It's as simple as downloading another app, making an account and posting shit.

Even the most basic users of Youtube, Fb, Twitter.. are aware of the rampant thought policing and anti fun attitude that is destroying their user experience.

Information I was unaware of since I last heard his name. Former Clinton Foundation CEO Eric Braverman is now working with the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Foundation of Google. fame.


He was previously listed as missing. And was mentioned in the wikileaks emails.

But...it's purely a coincidence that he's involved with these different groups.

Google and your data

Can't expect much else when the biggest search engine run by leftoids doesn't like what they see. They'll do what they can to modify behavior. Here's a recent article detailing just what kind of insight they have on the public at large. While bemoaning the searches for stereotypes about certain groups, all it did was confirm what's likely already out there, based on the experience of those conducting the searches.

In other words, why would a million people suddenly decide to Google "Why are black people rude?" unless in their personal experience they had reason to feel that way?

Also it seems parents have instincts which just won't die in spite of SJW pressures. They are more concerned with their daughter being fat and unattractive than they are about their sons:

What then are parents’ overriding concerns regarding their daughters? Primarily, anything related to appearance. Consider questions about a child’s weight. Parents Google “Is my daughter overweight?” roughly twice as frequently as they Google “Is my son overweight?” Parents are about twice as likely to ask how to get their daughters to lose weight as they are to ask how to get their sons to do the same. Just as with giftedness, this gender bias is not grounded in reality. About 28% of girls are overweight, while 35% of boys are. Even though scales measure more overweight boys than girls, parents see – or worry about – overweight girls much more frequently than overweight boys. Parents are also one-and-a-half times more likely to ask whether their daughter is beautiful than whether their son is handsome.

Liberal readers may imagine that these biases are more common in conservative parts of the country, but I didn’t find any evidence of that. In fact, I did not find a significant relationship between any of these biases and the political or cultural makeup of a state. It would seem this bias against girls is more widespread and deeply ingrained than we’d care to believe.

Of course, the global-homosexual elitist author putting the spin on all of this sees it as a "bias against girls" instead of what it's always been: a natural and understandable wish to see their daughters turn out attractive and desirable. Female attractiveness matters most in terms of mate selection, and even modern liberal parents know this deep down inside. They aren't as worried for the boys because it flat out doesn't make as much difference to their long term success in life. Hence, parents worry about what will:

There are also more searches for “is my son behind” or “stupid” than comparable searches for daughters. But searches with negative words like “behind” and “stupid” are less specifically skewed toward sons than searches with positive words, such as “gifted” or “genius”.

Even after all the cultural rot instilled by the left over decades, it seems the manipulation game can only get Google/Youtube so far.

But don't get cozy - they've got plans to use this anonymous data to target areas of the country they see ripe for cultural infiltration:

The second benefit of digital truth serum is that it alerts us to people who are suffering. The Human Rights Campaign has asked me to work with them in helping educate men in certain states about the possibility of coming out of the closet. They are looking to use the anonymous and aggregate Google search data to help them decide where best to target their resources.

I would not limit that technique to targeting closeted gays, of course - watch this space for other types of socio-political targeting.

There are other potential ways to use search data to learn what causes, or reduces, hate....
...Learning of our subconscious prejudices can also be useful...
...We can use the data to fight the darkness. Collecting rich data on the world’s problems is the first step toward fixing them.
Yeah, just imagine if they used this kind of data to identify potential threats to Republican congressmen, Trump supporters and anyone wearing a MAGA hat. Imagine the violence that could have been prevented. Even the Google-soy author who wrote that had to realize what was really out there, based on his other observations:

Does it change your view of human nature? Are we darker and stranger creatures than you realised?
Yeah. I think I had a dark view of human nature to begin with, and I think now it’s gotten even darker. I think the degree to which people are self-absorbed is pretty shocking.

When Trump became president, all my friends said how anxious they were, they couldn’t sleep because they’re so concerned about immigrants and the Muslim ban. But from the data you can see that in liberal parts of the country there wasn’t a rise in anxiety when Trump was elected. When people were waking up at 3am in a cold sweat, their searches were about their job, their health, their relationship – they’re not concerned about the Muslim ban or global warming.

Was the Google search data telling you that Trump was going to win?

I did see that Trump was going to win. You saw clearly that African American turnout was going to be way down, because in cities with 95% black people there was a collapse in searches for voting information. That was a big reason Hillary Clinton did so much worse than the polls suggested.

Absent a solar flare that takes out the grid and the internet long term, expect their influence to be more widespread and subversive than it already is.

Now there seems to be a sweep of Demonetisations and Forced Unsubscriptions on Fitness, Bodybuilding and Health Channels.

^^^ The Soi Boys that run Youtube don't want getting jacked and raising their T-levels. God forbid we have fit men becoming shitlords instead of skinny fat or just plain fat docile phags.

That's probably not far from the truth. Here's the web site for the author of the article I linked to above.

Soy is most definitely present in large amounts of his daily caloric intake.

His background and connections to the Obama white house shouldn't surprise you either.

He recently published a book about his Google data research. While the raw data is interesting, his conclusions are unsupported and illogical and nakedly political. Nevertheless, people like this are pulling the strings behind what the masses are told to think - we probably just witnessed another string being pulled by YouTube/Google with their subtle muting of that bodybuilder's channel.

With all this high-tech censorship going on, a question popped into my head this evening:

Where is Peter Thiel?

He was the founder of Paypal and an early investor in Google. He's certainly a "maverick," or he at least used to be. If he said something about all this censorship, people would listen. So, where is Peter Thiel? Why has been silent about this?
