This is a call to all the BigBoy Youtube channels out there (you know who you are):

Youtube is in the middle of a mighty purge. The last time they did something like this, members of the gaming community, led by the largest gaming channels on the platform, rose up and voiced their opposition to the demonetization of smaller channels for content they said was unbecoming of their advertisers. These channels weren’t restricted to gamers as they demonetized all sorts of content but specifically they went after political and geopolitical commentary channels. Yet gamers were affected as well and leading gaming channels spoke out along with countless other creators against Youtube/Google/Alphabet’s censorship via economic sanctions (which is effectively what they were doing)

Today we see the weaponization of their ambiguous “community guidelines” clauses to strike and remove numbers of channels, getting rid of content creators on a massive scale for arbitrary violations of these rules, without allowing the creators any recourse or real ability to appeal these automated actions. Most often these “violations” are spurious at best and sometimes they don’t even bother informing the creators exactly what violation they have committed.

It doesn’t matter what side of the artificial political divide you fall on.

It doesn’t matter if you liked their content or not. If you really defend free speech, you MUST defend all speech, including that which offends you most, or you defend no speech, not even your own.

For years content creators have warned people about the coming totalitarian state as brought about by “Big Gubment” and as it turns out… they were partially correct… only it isn’t Big Gubmint that silenced them… it was Big Business.

Youtube has silenced a number of channels (mine being one (I have two strikes, waiting on the third while my ability to upload videos has been suspended)) most of them were not even monetized so it had nothing to do with advertisers.

They simply removed them because they, as a major corporation in the US, didn’t like what those content creators had too say.

It isn’t about “truth”… it’s about DISCUSSION… it’s about ASKING QUESTIONS… it’s about THINKING FOR OURSELVES about events that we feel are critical and essential to our FREEDOMS.

Youtube has essentially said ONLY CERTAIN TYPES OF DISCUSSIONS ABOUT CERTAIN EVENTS WILL BE ALLOWED.

How soon till BigBoy channels like these run into the same kind of limitations on what they can and cannot discuss?

Right now I am on my way out (AmericanEveryman) and you can read my article from my website about the banning here. Luckily for me I have another avenue for my content (website and BitChute) but many others do not. When their channels were taken down they were left voiceless and powerless. I have a relatively small channel and though it has been around for over a year, I have only been actively working on my content for the past 7 months or so. Ergo the loss for me is tangible but not crippling.

But some of the creators have been devastated by this. Their sites around for much longer than mine, their efforts on their content much more complicated and engaged. For them the loss has been catastrophic. Here is but a small list of a few who have lost their ability to have their voice and their creativity heard on that forum:

Charles Walton

Syrian Girl Partisan
Activist Post

Charles Walton has put together a petition asking Youtube content creators to refrain from posting videos on Youtube until this most recent purge of theirs is stopped and reversed. If by some miraculous happenstance, Youtube’s Naziesque algorithms don’t get around to giving me my final strike for some old video in the next two weeks and I am allowed to upload videos again, I will post a video calling on Youtube to address these issues and these silenced partners of ours. For we are all partners in this endevour, not competitors.

I understand that it is not financially feasible for many of you BigBoy channels to agree to what amounts to a general creator strike at Youtube over the censorship of a group of smaller, more controversial channels. Bills have to be paid. Employees have to be paid.

But to ignore this purge is a perilous path for, in time, you to will come under the narrowing eye of Youtube’s Thought Policing algorithms. That is not hyperbole… it is historical fact.

[Quotation from Martin Niemöller on display in the Permanent Exhibition of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Niemöller was a Lutheran minister and early Nazi supporter who was later imprisoned for opposing Hitler's regime.]

You must speak out against this purge. You must speak up for those silenced among us who no longer have a voice to speak for themselves. You must do these things else wait cowering for your turn in the attic. For it will come.

You speak of Syria? You speak of Mueller? You speak of collusion, rigging and perpetual war on a global scale? Today that is allowed. Tomorrow, it will not be. And, again, is not hyperbole.

While you have a voice and an audience you must speak out for those who no longer can speak for themselves. I will join their ranks shortly I am sure but if not, if I return it will be to speak for those who cannot. That is not a promise, it is simply a duty and one that I cannot ignore because it serves my personal interests.

There is such a thing as the common good and we must chose to be part of it… or part of the lessoning of our very culture, of our very species. You BigBoy channels need to speak out against this latest purge by Youtube/Google/Alphabet. You need to do it for them. You need to do it for yourselves. You need to do it for all of us… before all is silence.

Even if it is speech you don't agree with Heartflowers I have a problem with those that promote pedophilia though.
At the end of the day,if you don't like the content,simply don't click on it. Done.
