    YouTube ‘accidentally’ deleted non-leftist accounts
    By Mac Slavo | SHTF Plan - March 2, 2018
    .
    YouTube is now claiming that its censorship of non-left-leaning accounts was an accident. They are placing the blame on “over-eager moderators” and say they aren’t really censoring anyone.

    Let’s call this explanation from YouTube what it is: total and complete BS.

    So, let’s get this straight, YouTube: your moderators “accidentally” gave Infowars, (a channel with over 2.2 million subscribers) two strikes, banned them from uploading videos for two weeks, and threatened a complete removal of the account on accident? No one’s buying it. Least of all those who have been censored.

    According to YouTube, the whole censorship was just an accident caused by inexperienced new employees.
    .
    If those questioning the media’s “official narrative” of the events of the Florida school shooting needed any more evidence that they are on the right track, they’ve just gotten it. YouTube and Twitter are now scrubbing users who dare to question the students demanding gun control and the media’s account of the school shooting.

    According to Natural News, starting a few days ago, both Twitter and YouTube began scrubbing all videos and tweets that don’t follow the “official narrative” on the Florida school shooting. Anyone who questions the wisdom of the school students-turned-propagandists (who were all probably eating Tide pods a week ago) is immediately banned and silenced with censorship. Only one side of this “debate” is allowed to exist: The side that worships the government and demands that all law-abiding Americans surrender their self-defense firearms because a group of traumatized school kids were shot at by their own lunatic classmate. –SHTFPlan

    Make no mistake; YouTube isn’t apologizing for the “accidental” censorship of ideas they don’t like either. They are simply asking all to believe....

    Paul Joseph Watson on Breitbart News Daily: YouTube Censors Conservatives Because the Left Can’t ‘Compete with Us’
    .
    "Calling in from London is someone I’m very excited to talk to, Paul Joseph Watson. He’s an editor-at-large at InfoWars,” welcomed Marlow. “You probably most know him from his YouTube channel which is wildly popular, and I’m excited to talk to Paul because he’s a smart guy. This is an important topic we’re going to get into, and most importantly people don’t want me to talk to him. I’m not supposed to talk to you, Paul.”

    Watson laughed, before Marlow continued, “Let’s get right into it. YouTube is threatening InfoWars in particular, they say you’re one strike away from the YouTube ban, and I’m surprised they’re even giving you fair warning.”

    “Well, this all came about, and this is what’s amazing to me, Alex, as a result of basically a CNN lobbying campaign. Last week they put the article up that you just mentioned saying that we were one strike away basically from a YouTube ban, which is what happens afterwards,” replied Watson. “We’re back to one strike, by the way, they revoked one of them. This started a chain of events which people are now calling the YouTube purge.”

    Watson then explained that though the purge was largely affecting right-wing accounts, there were also centrist accounts being sanctioned, noting, “Yesterday they took out Sargon of Akkad, who is a self-described liberal centrist. He’s been locked out of his account. But people who have discussed, for example, the aftermath of the Parkland shooting, that is what appears to be the moral contrived panic that YouTube took advantage of to take out many of these right-leaning accounts.”

    “Just last night, Jerome Corsi, who is our bureau chief… He’s been in the White House press briefing room… His account has been completely terminated. So it seems like they’re using this contrived moral panic that came about as of the Parkland students becoming public activists, so you can’t even question them beyond the pale, they use that to then target the conservative right-leaning and even centrist accounts,” he declared. “And now, YouTube has come out and admitted that they made a mistake. That it was all just a mistake. Meanwhile, the accounts keep getting suspended… Mike Cernovich put up a public video documenting a street protest of Antifa radicals chanting death threats against conservatives, and that video got taken down for community guideline strikes. So that’s why people are calling it a purge, because it really does seem very widespread across all these different topics, and not just on the right.”

    When asked if he thought free speech was deteriorating, Watson replied, “Oh, completely. This is the worst I’ve seen it in terms of social media, ever.”

    “It’s just so ironic because our videos are getting flagged for harassment and bullying… That’s the excuse they use to take them down, and eventually take the channel down,” proclaimed Watson. “CNN can go to an old lady’s house in Florida, stick a camera in her face, accuse her of being in bed with the Russians, harass her to the point where she has to retreat into her home, and that’s completely fine. That’s not harassment. That’s not bullying. A national news organization basically exposing an individual, a seventy-five-year-old woman. You have Pamela Geller’s daughters, now being exposed on Twitter by the Daily Beast to the point where they have to close down their Twitter accounts. Pamela Geller has received numerous credible threats and death threats from Islamic terrorists, but that’s not bullying, that’s not harassment.”

    “We’re facing the regressive left which is openly applauding, celebrating, and popping champagne corks over free speech being dismantled. You asked, Alex, when it started. Obviously there’s been a build-up since the demonetization controversy, but I mean I warned back on August first, which is the day when YouTube announced the ADL… the Anti-Defamation League, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, would be empowered to flag ‘offensive, harassment, bullying’ content....

    Generally speaking, on the left you have like Jimmy Kimmel with ten different people writing his scripts every night. The left, as individuals, are quite poor at those things, which is why they’re quite poor at YouTube. Obviously, you’ve got some successful channels, but in terms of a community, they’re really getting their butts kicked. I mean my channel and Alex Jones’ channel have more subscribers than CNN. CNN is a global network with millions and millions of dollars of funding, compared to InfoWars, which is reasonably sizeable, and we have greater reach, which is why they’re panicking. They can’t compete with us, so they have to shut us down.”

    TYRANNY ON PARADE=> YouTube Blocks RightSide Broadcasting’s Oscar’s Alternative — Says It’s “Not Suitable for Most Advertisers”
    .
    The Social Media Neutrality Panel was held February at the Newseum in Washington DC.

    The panel included testimony from Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit, Pamela Geller of The Geller Report, Margaret Howell of Rightside Broadcasting, Oleg Atbashian from The People’s Cube, tech entrepreneur Marlene Jaeckel. Topics all involved the current tech climate, social media bias, shadow banning and other methods meant to silence voices and limit readers and viewers access to information.

    Margaret Howell currently heads Right Side Broadcasting Network as their DC bureau chief. She holds a masters degree in Legislative Politics from George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management, and BA from GW University. She was correspondent for RT news, and moved to RT International, broadcasting in Moscow, Russia. She’s reported on suicide bombings in real time, state-sponsored terrorism, and the EU. Margaret joined Infowars, reporting for Alex Jones at the start of the 2016 election cycle. Margaret currently lives in Washington DC.

    Howell discussed how tech giants such as Facebook, Google, and Youtube seem to be taking direct orders from Media Matters to censor conservative voices. In multiple examples, she discusses how if you are branded as a conservative on social media, these companies will go as far as to remove live videos and videos with no actual political context because they want to prevent any potential message from getting through their gates.

    In perhaps one of the most nonsensical and ludicrous cases of blind censorship, Howell discussed that even a video she recorded during the White House press briefing was censored by Youtube – coverage identical to what MSM is allowed to broadcast across all platforms.

    Confirmed: Facebook’s Recent Algorithm Change Is Crushing Conservative Sites, Boosting Liberals
    .
    Facebook’s much-publicized demotion of publishers’ content in users’ news feeds has negatively impacted conservative-leaning publishers significantly more than liberal-leaning outlets, an analysis by The Western Journal has revealed.

    Liberal publishers have gained about 2 percent more web traffic from Facebook than they were getting prior to the algorithm changes implemented in early February.

    On the other hand, conservative publishers have lost an average of nearly 14 percent of their traffic from Facebook.

    This algorithm change, intentional or not, has in effect censored conservative viewpoints on the largest social media platform in the world. This change has ramifications that, in the short-term, are causing conservative publishers to downsize or fold up completely, and in the long-term could swing elections in the United States and around the world toward liberal politicians and policies.
    ...
    Why did Facebook make this change?

    Campbell Brown, a former anchor on NBC and CNN who now leads Facebook’s news partnerships team, told attendees at a recent technology and publishing conference that Facebook would be censoring news publishers based on its own internal biases:

    “This is not us stepping back from news. This is us changing our relationship with publishers and emphasizing something that Facebook has never done before: It’s having a point of view, and it’s leaning into quality news. … We are, for the first time in the history of Facebook, taking a step to try to to define what ‘quality news’ looks like and give that a boost.” (Emphasis added.)

    Based on The Western Journal’s analysis — and an overwhelming amount of insider reports from new media publishers — it is clear that Facebook’s definition of “quality news” is news with a liberal slant.

    Google and Amazon patent creepy SPY systems that use cameras and sensors in your home to know everything from your mood to your medical conditions
    .
    Amazon and Google really do want to watch your every move.

    A series of patents filed by the firms 'outline an array of possibilities' for how their smart speakers could be used to better listen in on users.

    They suggest their always-on Google Home and Amazon Echo devices could know everything from a user's mood to their medical condition, and target advertising based on this data.

    The development comes amid a growing scandal involving the handling of the private data of 50 million users by Facebook and Cambridge Analytica.

    The same patent applications reveals a device that could 'recognize a T-shirt on a floor of the user's closet' with Will Smith's face.

    It could then combine this with a browser history that shows searches for Mr Smith.

    This would allow Google to 'provide a movie recommendation that displays, 'You seem to like Will Smith. His new movie is playing in a theatre near you.'

    In a separate patent application, Google describes a device that would give advice to parents for 'areas of improvement' such as spending more time with their children at supper.

    Google and Amazon patent 1984-style devices that spy on you in your home
    .
    Another reason to dump these companies: Google and Amazon have both patented devices that are designed to spy on you at all times in your home.

    The description of Google’s devices is particularly vile, and almost matches precisely the spying devices George Orwell created in 1984 that allowed the government to monitor its citizens 24 hours a day.
    ...
    Both Google and Amazon have made it clear in the past year that they are are increasingly partisan, strongly leftist with agendas favoring the Democratic Party. You therefore have to be a simpleton to think that this information will never be used by them for political reasons someday.

    FB’s Secret Mission to Nab Patient’s Data
    .
    Yesterday, CNBC reported that Facebook is trying to get hospitals to give up their patient data such as illness and prescription info for a proposed research project. Reportedly, the patient data would be anonymized, however check this:

    “Facebook was intending to match it up with user data it had collected, and help the hospitals figure out which patients might need special care or treatment.”

    Right! The problem is that Big Data is getting so much data on you that it would not be hard to match up even anonymized medical records to actual users. For example, the CNBC story only mentions that the patient’s name would be removed. But even if they blanked out your street address and SSN, but include that you were admitted to the hospital as a result of a car wreck on such and such a date, the location of the hospital would be known, plus your age, race and gender. So how many people like you were admitted to a certain hospital on a certain day with a certain set of specific complaints? Probably just one. It would be totally trivial to match those data sets up to the massive amount of data Facebook has already gathered on you – and your friends – and boom, your entire medical history suddenly becomes a part of the Facebook platform to be bought and sold in the human behavior auction market.

    CENSORED! How Online Media Companies Are Suppressing Conservative Speech
    .
    Like it or not, social media is the communication form of the future — not just in the U.S., but worldwide. Just Facebook and Twitter combined reach 1.8 billion people. More than two-thirds of all Americans (68 percent) use Facebook. YouTube is pushing out TV as the most popular place to watch video. Google is the No. 1 search engine in both the U.S. and the world.

    War is being declared on the conservative movement in this space and conservatives are losing — badly. If the right is silenced, billions of people will be cut off from conservative ideas and conservative media.

    It’s the new battleground of media bias. But it’s worse. That bias is not a war of ideas. It’s a war against ideas. It’s a clear effort to censor the conservative worldview from the public conversation.

    The Media Research Center has undertaken an extensive study of the problem at major tech companies — Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube — and the results are far more troubling than most conservatives realize. Here are some of the key findings:

    • Twitter Leads in Censorship: Project Veritas recently had caught Twitter staffers admitting on hidden camera that they had been censoring conservatives through a technique known as shadow banning, where users think their content is getting seen widely, but it’s not. The staffers had justified it by claiming the accounts had been automated if they had words such as “America” and “God.” In 2016, Twitter had attempted to manipulate election-related tweets using the hashtags “#PodestaEmails” and “#DNCLeak.” The site also restricts pro-life ads from Live Action and even Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), but allows Planned Parenthood advertisements.
    • Facebook’s Trending Feed Has Been Hiding Conservative Topics: A 2016 Gizmodo story had warned of Facebook’s bias. It had detailed claims by former employees that Facebook’s news curators had been instructed to hide conservative content from the “trending” section, which supposedly only features news users find compelling. Topics that had been blacklisted included Mitt Romney, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and Rand Paul. On the other hand, the term “Black Lives Matter” had also been placed into the trending section even though it was not actually trending. Facebook had also banned at least one far right European organization but had not released information on any specific statements made by the group that warranted the ban.
    • Google Search Aids Democrats: Google and YouTube’s corporate chairman Eric Schmidt had assisted Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The company’s search engine had deployed a similar bias in favor of Democrats. One study had found 2016 campaign searches were biased in favor of Hillary Clinton. Even the liberal website Slate had revealed the search engine’s results had favored both Clinton and Democratic candidates. Google also had fired engineer James Damore for criticizing the company’s “Ideological Echo Chamber.” The company had claimed he had been fired for “advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.” Damore is suing Google, saying it mistreats whites, males and conservatives.
    • YouTube Is Shutting Down Conservative Videos: Google’s YouTube site had created its own problems with conservative content. YouTube moderators must take their cues from the rest of Google – from shutting down entire conservative channels “by mistake” to removing videos that promote right-wing political views. YouTube’s special Creators for Change section is devoted to people using their “voices for social change” and even highlights the work of a 9/11 truther. The site’s very own YouTube page and Twitter account celebrate progressive attitudes, including uploading videos about “inspiring” gay and trans people and sharing the platform’s support for DACA.
    • Tech Firms Are Relying on Groups That Hate Conservatives: Top tech firms like Google, YouTube and Twitter partner with leftist groups attempting to censor conservatives. These include the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Both groups claim to combat “hate,” but treat standard conservative beliefs in faith and family as examples of that hatred. George Soros-funded ProPublica is using information from both radical leftist organizations to attack conservative groups such as Jihad Watch and ACT for America, bullying PayPal and other services to shut down their funding sources. The SPLC’s “anti-LGBT” list had also been used to prevent organizations from partnering with AmazonSmile to raise funds.
    • Liberal Twitter Advisors Outnumber Conservatives 12-to-1: Twelve of the 25 U.S. members of Twitter’s Trust and Safety Council – which helps guide its policies – are liberal, and only one is conservative. Anti-conservative groups like GLAAD and the ADL are part of the board. There is no well-known conservative group represented.
    • Tech Companies Rely on Anti-Conservative Fact-Checkers: Facebook and Google both had partnered with fact-checking organizations in order to combat “fake news.” Facebook’s short-lived disputed flagger program had allowed Snopes, PolitiFact and ABC News to discern what is and is not real news. Google’s fact-checkers had accused conservative sources of making claims that did not appear in their articles and disproportionately “fact-checked” conservative sources. On Facebook, a satire site, the Babylon Bee, had been flagged by Snopes for its article clearly mocking CNN for its bias. YouTube also had announced a partnership with Wikipedia in order to debunk videos deemed to be conspiracy theories, even though Wikipedia has been criticized for its liberal bias.

    Recommendations For The Tech Companies:

    • People Are Policy: Tech companies like Google and Facebook are making a nominal effort to hire conservatives, but that doesn’t address the core problems within those organizations. Companies need to eliminate policies and biases that discriminate against conservatives. They also need to protect employees’ ability to disagree with the pervasive liberal groupthink that dominates the industry.
    • Tech Companies Must Provide Transparency: People and organizations have their posts and videos either restricted or deleted on all major platforms. If those companies expect their users to trust them, they must make this system transparent. They must show at least when posts of organizations and public figures are deleted and when they aren’t. That would give users a baseline of what speech is allowed on a platform, not just whatever the companies choose to delete.
    • Expect Regulation At This Pace: Tech companies are facing calls for regulation from left and right. The firms should address this by setting rules about how they will treat both conservative and liberal organizations and information fairly. This means clear, published guidelines must be established that support free speech online. Algorithms, content guidelines and ad policies must be designed that don’t target political speech. Firms must stop pretending disagreement is equivalent to hate speech. Fairness and transparency are equally essential.
    • Avoid Partnering With Bad Actors: Twitter, YouTube and others had tried to establish policies that prevent so-called hate speech on their platforms. But those policies are being enforced by organizations that spew hate against the conservative movement and can’t pretend to be neutral players. Groups like the SPLC and ADL label core conservative values as “hate” or “bigotry.” Tech companies can’t expect conservatives to trust a system that is so blatantly one-sided.
    • Modify Flagging Systems: One of the worst problems tech companies grapple with is the abuse of their flagging and reporting systems. YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, in particular, succumb to liberal activists who game their systems and constantly report conservative content. These services must determine a better way to handle alerts that do not allow coordinated campaigns against the right.
    • Use Neutral Fact-Checkers: If social media sites are going to attempt to be the arbiters of what is real news, they must rely on fact-checking sources that are neutral and fair toward stories on both sides of the aisle. Relying on sites like Snopes, which has a clear liberal bias, raises concerns over whether the tech giants are trying to promote a liberal political narrative.

    "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" is a poem published by Rudyard Kipling in 1919, which, editor Andrew Rutherford said, contained "age-old, unfashionable wisdom" that Kipling saw as having been forgotten by society and replaced by "habits of wishful thinking."

    The "copybook headings" to which the title refers were proverbs or maxims, extolling age old wisdom - virtues such as honesty or fair dealing that were printed at the top of the pages of 19th-century British students' special notebooks, called copybooks. The school-children had to write them by hand repeatedly down the page. However, the marketplaces were areas that dishonesty and immorality ruled. The Gods (or principles) of the marketplace represent selfishness, reckless progress, over-indulgence and a failure to learn from the past.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Go...ybook_Headings


    So copybook headings were wise sayings passed down through generations, and the market place was the source of corruption.

    This poem was published the year after the end of WWI.

    "Gorillas" in the second verse would probably equate to "Deplorables."
    "They" are the Gods of the Copybook Headings.

    In the fifth verse, "They" are the Gods of the Market Place.


    The Gods of the Copybook Headings

    AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
    I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
    Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

    We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
    That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
    But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
    So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

    We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
    Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
    But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
    That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

    With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
    They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
    They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
    So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

    When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
    But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

    On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
    (Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
    Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."

    In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
    By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
    But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."

    Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
    And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
    That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

    As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
    There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
    That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
    And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

    And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
    When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
    As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
    The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
