Cartel? YouTube Removes Project Veritas Video Revealing Mass Censorship of Conservatives on Pinterest

The big tech giants appear to stick together.

YouTube Removes Project Veritas Pinterest

After YouTube suspended Project Veritas for posting a screen shot from the video, YouTube joined in the fray by removing the video from YouTube due to a “third party” filing a privacy complaint with the platform.

James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, conducted an interview with a whistle blower at Pinterest, a social media platform geared toward sharing images, that showed the company’s systematic censorship of conservatives and Christians on its platforms. Terms about Christianity, including “Easter” and “Bible verse” were blocked from the platform, and virtually every conservative news website, including Big League Politics, were added to a list of websites considered “porn” by the platform to prevent links from being shared.

YouTube has now removed the viral video from its platform, citing a “privacy claim by a third party”, likely Pinterest.

“YouTube has REMOVED our Pinterest Insider story,” wrote O’Keefe. “The battle is on.”

O’Keefe also provided a link to a GoFundMe fundraiser where users may donate to the Pinterest insider, who was fired from the social media company after Project Veritas’s video went live. In only a few hours, the whistle blower already raised thousands of dollar.

This comes only hours after the Project Veritas Twitter account was suspended for uploading a leaked screen shot of the Pinterest Slack chat, showing employees referring to Jewish conservative commentator Ben Shapiro as a “white nationalist”, who should be monitored for extremist content, along with Candace Owens.

Two of the largest big tech companies now appear to be acting together to protect a third big tech company from having its dirty laundry and blatant anti-conservative bias exposed to the public.

It also comes only shortly after YouTube announced its intention to remove videos that do not directly violate its content policies, but may merely be offensive.

Big League Politics reported:

Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Axios that YouTube’s new content policing strategy would single out what they describe as “borderline content.”

Pichair describes “borderline content” as “Content which doesn’t exactly violate policies, which need to be removed, but which can still cause harm.”

The Google CEO said that the problem at hand is “a hard computer science problem. He also stated that it is an even harder “societal problem because we need better frameworks around what is hate speech, what’s not, and how do we as a company make those decisions at scale, and get it right without making mistakes.”

In a statement last week, YouTube said, “Even if a creator’s content doesn’t violate our community guidelines, we will take a look at the broader context and impact, and if their behavior is egregious and harms the broader community, we may take action.”

It seems as though big tech’s war against conservatism, the America First agenda, and the First Amendment is already in full swing as Republicans prepare themselves for the 2020 elections.

Twitter Suspending Bloomberg Bots for Coordinated Fake Engagement

The Bloomberg campaign is taking a page from the strategy of supposed Russian bots.

Published

on

Twitter began suspending more than 70 pro-Michael Bloomberg accounts from its platform on Friday, citing supposed inauthentic and coordinated behavior.

The platform was alerted to the suspicious behavior by the Los Angeles Times, and shortly after began suspending the accounts.

The reports of the Bloomberg bots are reminiscent of the claims of Russian bots waging influence campaigns in U.S elections. Both operations apparently involve scripted messaging, fake political engagement, and platform manipulation.

Evidence of identical messaging being spread by dubious pro-Bloomberg accounts was published by the Los Angeles Times in their report on the matter Friday.

A statement from Twitter on the suspensions confirmed the Bloomberg shill accounts violated the platform’s rules by “creating multiple accounts to post duplicative content” and “coordinating with or compensating others to engage in artificial engagement or amplification, even if the people involved use only one account.

The accounts avoid direct connections to the Bloomberg campaign, in an attempt to avoid being identified as coordinated shill accounts.

Bloomberg is paying a considerable cohort of “deputy field organizers” $2,500 a month to shill for the New York oligarch on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. The messaging strategy is relatively unprecedented in American politics, offering cash directly for a constant stream of political messaging on personal social media accounts.

The Bloomberg campaign claims that paid deputy field organizers are required to identify their affiliation with the campaign in a statement regarding the suspensions. As Bloomberg’s online social media strategy copies a page from the book of supposed malicious Russian bots, high-ranking U.S intelligence community personnel are claiming that the Russian bots are active once again in attempts to promote the campaigns of both Bernie Sanders and President Donald Trump.
