FOX News host Tucker Carlson had left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept on his show last night where the men both admonished YouTube for implementing Big Brother presumably because a homosexual Vox employee’s feelings were hurt.
Carlson offered a spirited defense of Stephen Crowder, the conservative pundit who offended the Vox blogger during his comedic podcasts prompting the blogger to push YouTube to censor content, claiming the demonetization of his videos is apart of the corporate war on the free press.
“Platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, these are the modern public square obviously. Congress has acknowledged them as such. Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act gives tech companies special immunity from being sued for defamation or fraud,” Carlson said.
“The effect is immunity, and that immunity is worth tens of billions of dollars. It’s one of the reasons the owners of Twitter, Facebook and Google are so rich. You guaranteed that to them through your representatives in the Congress. And yet in return, these tech companies violate the terms of the deal every minute of every day,” Carlson added.
“They’re not open forums. They’re ongoing exercises in control and censorship,” Carlson said to conclude his rant.
Backing up Carlson’s points is the fact that independent, non-partisan journalist Ford Fischer of News2Share and history teacher Scott Allsop were also targeted in the purge alongside Crowder and other right-wing voices. This shows that it is more than just conservative provocateurs who are being impacted by YouTube’s truth commission and Orwellian censorship on other digital platforms.
Greenwald largely agreed with Carlson’s take. The openly homosexual liberal believes Crowder is a “contemptuous cretin” for the remarks he made, but believes he should nevertheless have the right to say them.
“I find Crowder to be a contemptuous cretin,” Greenwald said. “I think he is a bully and bigot. He did not just criticize Carlos, he mocked him for being gay and Latino and sent a lot of harassment his way. That’s the point. Censorship advocates want our brains to just go to the first level of, ‘Do we hate their person and are we glad they are being censored?’
“In reality, this power to censor was not one they wanted,” he added. “It was one that was hoisted upon them largely by journalists who demanded they remove voices from the Internet. Imagine going into journalism and begging corporations to silence people.”
Greenwald noted that the giving a platform to individuals like Crowder is far less of a threat than a mob of jackals having the power to shutter voices based on their capricious whims.
“YouTube caved in defense of the powerful,” Greenwald told Carlson. “That’s what they will always do. Defend the mob and the powerful at the expense of those who are marginalized.”
Vox Media is partly owned by Comcast, one of the most powerful media corporations in the world. Their subsidiary, NBCUniversal pumped $200 million into the fledgling media company in 2015. Begging fellow monolithic corporations to censor their competitors may be their only possible chance to stay afloat at this point.
Twitter Targets Alternative Video Platform Bitchute as Big Tech’s Censorship Crackdown Intensifies
Big Tech wants to cripple the free flow of information.
The social media giant Twitter is targeting Bitchute, the alternative video service that allows for content to be shared freely on the platform, with Draconian censorship.
Independent journalist Tim Pool made the discovery in a Twitter post:
Twitter seems to have blocked Bitchute

This may have been done at the behest of ANTIFA-style organization, Hope Not Hate, which lobbies Big Tech to censor their political enemies.
Violent, racist & harmful videos are posted on social media platforms using the video-sharing platform BitChute as the host – circumventing the ban most major platforms have placed on the sharing of hate content.

“Major social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter should ban the sharing of Bitchute links on their platform, thereby significantly reducing the impact of this extreme and dangerous material,” Hope Not Hate wrote in their blog about Bitchute.
In addition to calling for Draconian censorship against Bitchute on social media platforms, they also call for Bitchute to be slapped with criminal repercussions for permitting free speech on their platform.
“Law enforcement investigate Bitchute for distribution of content that breaks British law, including terrorism legislation,” Hope Not Hate wrote. “The Government should introduce an Online Harms Bill that includes meaningful consequences for bespoke platforms such as Bitchute that host, promote or distribute terrorism, extremist and hateful content.”
Bitchute has grown in influence for hosting videos that have been driven off of major platforms. A viral video of front-line doctors urging for the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 was scrubbed from YouTube but can still be accessed on Bitchute.
The Bitchute links to banned videos from the courageous medical whistleblowers have been posted many different times onto Twitter:

Twitter will not allow users to access these videos without providing the following warning:
As Twitter targets Bitchute for allowing freedom of speech on their monopoly platform, they are actively allowing pedophiles to discuss their lustful desires for children.
Big League Politics has reported on how Twitter explicitly amended their terms of service so pedophiles are allowed on the platform to talk about how they want to rape kids, with child nudity being permissible in certain instances:
Social media giant Twitter has quietly amended their terms of service to allow for “discussions related to… attraction towards minors” to be allowed on their platform.
“Discussions related to child sexual exploitation as a phenomenon or attraction towards minors are permitted, provided they don’t promote or glorify child sexual exploitation in any way,” reads Twitter’s terms of service.
Twitter allow noted that they would allow for nude depictions of children on their platform in certain instances.
“Artistic depictions of nude minors in a non-sexualized context or setting may be permitted in a limited number of scenarios e.g., works by internationally renowned artists that feature minors,” they added.
Twitter’s pro-pedo policy may have been implemented at the behest of Dr. James Cantor, who describes himself as a proud Jewish homosexual. Cantor is a leading researcher and advocate for pedophiles, who he refers to as minor-attracted persons.
Cantor wrote a letter in Jan. 2018 to John Starr, who works as Director of Trust and Safety with Twitter, with other university academics. The letter urged Twitter to allow pedophiles to network and discuss their attraction to children on the monolithic social media platform.
“Many of us have worked with a group of such non-offending pedophiles, also known as anti-contact MAPs (Minor-Attracted Persons), in a peer support network called Virtuous Pedophiles (@virpeds), as well as in other support networks,” they wrote in their letter.
“Recently, a prominent member of Virtuous Pedophiles, who goes by the pseudonym Ender Wiggin (@enderphile2), had his account permanently suspended by Twitter. At least one other member of the same network, Šimon Falko (@simgiran), also had his account permanently suspended around the same time, and a number of other accounts of non-offending, anti-contact MAPs have since been permanently or temporarily suspended,” they added.
They argued that denying pedophiles a place on the social media platform may lead to these so-called virtuous pedophiles acting on their impulses to sexually victimize kids.
The values of these tech giants do not align with American values. If these hostile actors refuse to abide by American values, they ought to lose their Section 230 privileges under the Communications Decency Act.
