Synopsis: Yesterday, YouTube demonetized my report # 1904, President Trump’s Thanksgiving Day Message. I put this up with no commentary whatsoever. It was just a very uncontroversial shout out to the troops overseas and the police, fire and EMT who continue to serve the cause of a free civilization rain or storm, day or night, winter or summer.
Within hours – perhaps minutes, YouTube deemed this report from our President:
“Not suitable for most advertisers”.
That means that my ability to have AdSense run their ads on this report and thereby pay me for those ads was almost immediately removed.
This type of obvious political bias is troubling. This is our president wishing God-speed to our military in harm’s way - the literal tip of the spear of our quest for human freedom. This flies in the face of everything the Bill of Rights and the 1st amendment stand for – freedom of speech – and no, I was not yelling fire in a crowded theater. This is strictly political and anti-democratic.
I didn’t discover the anti-free speech censorship until last night about 10pm – that’s 3 full days.
I clicked the button requesting a manual review and this morning - sure enough - the censorship had been lifted. But what happens in the meantime to my finances? My guess is that my 3-day financial loss will not be estimated and then reimbursed to my account. My guess is that YouTube knows there is no oversight to their politically-motivated censorship and therefore no accountability is needed or wanted, and no effective penalty will ever be felt.
So, content creators on YouTube are currently just out of luck. Perhaps YouTube’s thinking is that we will all starve to death and just go away and only the robustly-funded, lock-step boots of the progressive left will be available in a few short years.
