Ron Paul’s “Liberty Report” being economically censored by YouTube

Julian Assange exposes YouTube’s crack down on free speech, which now includes Ron Paul.

Former US Congressman Ron Paul is now on YouTube’s “bad” list.

Paul joins a growing list of political journalists and commentators who’re being economically punished by YouTube (and its parent Google) for producing videos that dare to question the neo-liberal, globalist agenda.

Ron Paul’s video do not violate any of YouTube’s terms and are not hateful or violent…but are very popular with libertarian and conservative viewers, often receiving hundreds of thousands of views.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange tweeted a screenshot of Ron Paul’s “Liberty Report” page which clearly showed Paul’s videos as being labeled “not suitable” for all advertisers by YouTube’s content police.

Of course nothing unites the neo-liberal left and the neocon right more than illegal war, and after Paul spoke out about President Trump’s decision to increase the number of US troops in Afghanistan, YouTube conveniently placed Ron Paul on the “not suitable for advertisers” list.

Zerohedge reports…

The notion that YouTube would want to economically punish a former US Congressman for sharing his views on US foreign policy – a topic that he is unequivocally qualified to speak about – is absurd. Furthermore, the “review requested” marking on one of Paul’s videos reveals that they were initially flagged by users before YouTube’s moderators confirmed that the videos were unsuitable for a broad audience.

Other political commentators who’ve been censored by YouTube include Paul Joseph Watson and Tim Black – both ostensibly for sharing political views that differ from the mainstream neo-liberal ideology favored by the Silicon Valley elite.

Last week, Google – another Alphabet Inc. company – briefly banned Salil Mehta, an adjunct professor at Columbia and Georgetown who teaches probability and data science, from using its service, freezing his accounts without providing an explanation. He was later allowed to return to the service.

Conservative YouTuber Lauren Southern spoke to the Daily Caller about YouTube’s clever way to economically censor any speech that runs counter to the globalist agenda.

“I think it would be insane to suggest there’s not an active effort to censor conservative and independent views,” said Southern.

“Considering most of Silicon Valley participate in the censorship of alleged ‘hate speech,’ diversity hiring and inclusivity committees. Their entire model is based around a far left outline. There’s no merit hiring, there’s no support of free speech and there certainly is not an equal representation of political views at these companies.”

Zerohedge adds…

Of course, Google isn’t the only Silicon Valley company that’s enamored with censorship. Facebook has promised to eradicate “fake news,” which, by its definition, includes political content that falls outside of the mainstream.

Still, economically punishing a former US Congressman and medical doctor is a new low in Silicon Valley’s campaign to stamp out dissent.

It would be so nice to see those that You Tube does not agree with, flock to another site, together with their audience.

There’s no censorship here. The videos are still available for viewing. Ron is complaining that he can’t scam some extra cash from YouTube advertising. That’s a very different matter. Free speech is not under attack in this situation. Also, Ron Paul is a liberal, so YouTube would have no interest in censoring him even if they did censor stuff.

Large companies are for globalism for the simple reason that there’s no equal to them. They hate free markets and once you get big enough you can fight the free market concept. There’s a relative few mega-powerful persons with a relative few parent companies which in turn have a lot of companies and organizations on the outside looking as if there’s plenty of competition. But there’s practically none and globalism makes sure it stays that way, whilst the common people become serfs or preferably slaves.

Zionist-American-British
collusion with Nazi Germany finds its modern-day manifestation in
NATO collusion with the neo-Nazi regime in Ukraine the White
Supremacists in yank land and jihadist terror groups dispatched in
proxy wars against Russian interests in Syria and elsewhere. The
players may change over time, but the root pathology is
American-British capitalism and its hegemonic addiction. Destroy all
white supremacists and zionists and destroy all authority….No KKK,
NO Trump , NO Clinton , NO fascist usa….Burn america , burn your
self away…LOL
