Google Censors John Stossel Video About Socialist Violence

Published

on

In an apparent effort to protect the idea that collectivism is a viable economic policy proposal, Libertarian pundit John Stossel said that Google censored his video on the ills of Socialism.

“This morning Google told me that it would not allow my YouTube video “Socialism Leads to Violence” to be viewed by young people,” he said in a Townhall column. “It violates ‘community guidelines,’ said the company in a computer-generated email.”

Google is the owner of YouTube.

Stossel speculated that Google could be harboring anti-capitalist bias, and that it could be built into the very algorithms that dictate what internet users see when they run an internet search.

“Google’s power comes from its dominant search engine. We assume that whatever appears at the top of our searches is the ‘best’ or most popular result. But is it?” Stossel wondered.

Peter Schweizer, author of the book “Clinton Cash” which was also turned into a documentary film, recently released a new documentary on Google’s apparent effort to censor conservative ideas, called “The Creepy Line.”

“It is a company that has an agenda,” Schweizer told Stossel. “Their ability to manipulate the algorithm is something that they’ve demonstrated.

Schweizer cited the fact that Google prioritized positive stories about Hillary R. Clinton during her failed presidential run in 2016.

“Human ‘content monitors’ do some of that censoring, and some of them despise conservatives,” according to Stossel. “A former Facebook employee reported that the human censors sometimes ignored stories trending among Facebook users if the stories came from a conservative website.”

Stossel said that he started a TV channel, “Stossel TV” to educate young people about capitalism, but that it will be a huge “setback” if his YouTube videos are censored.

“My purpose in making the videos is to reach kids, to educate them about the benefits of free markets,” he said. “It’s why I started StosselInTheClassroom.org, a nonprofit that provides videos, plus teachers’ guides, free to teachers.”

“If Google and Facebook decide adults should be ‘protected’ from seeing those videos, too, then ‘Stossel TV’ will go dark.”

SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.

Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.

The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.

The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”

Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.

Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in  a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
