Infowars Calls YouTube’s Bluff, Gets Banned One Day After CEO’s ‘Open Platform’ Declaration

YouTube removed a new Infowars channel one day after Wojcicki said she would allow “offensive” material on the platform.

Yesterday, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki published a blog congratulating her company for their dedication to freedom of expression and reaffirming their commitment to fostering an open platform.

“I believe preserving an open platform is more important than ever,” she wrote.

Recently, YouTube has purged hundreds of conservative and right-wing voices from the network without notice or cause. Just this week, popular vlogger James Allsup was thrown off the network despite never violating their terms of service one single time.

That didn’t stop Wojcicki from insulting the intelligence of her customers in her blog post though.

“A commitment to openness is not easy. It sometimes means leaving up content that is outside the mainstream, controversial or even offensive. But I believe that hearing a broad range of perspectives ultimately makes us a stronger and more informed society, even if we disagree with some of those views,” she wrote.

Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer decided to put Wojcicki to the test, and see whether or not she was being serious about her supposed commitment to allowing “offensive” content to be published on her platform. He started a new Infowars channel on YouTube to see if Wojcicki’s sentiments were legitimate.

He made the sarcastic announcement that YouTube lifted the ban against Infowars yesterday.

It only took one day until YouTube kicked Infowars off the platform yet again, with an assist from the fake news snitches at VICE, proving that Wojcicki’s blog was nothing but hot air.

“We’re committed to preserving openness and balancing it with our responsibility to protect our community,” YouTube spokesperson Ivy Choi said to Vice. “This means taking action against channels that continue to violate our policies.”

Shroyer posted a subsequent video featuring conspiracy icon Alex Jones declaring that the Infowars founder had “won the censorship cup” by incurring Big Brother’s wrath yet again on the tightly-controlled Orwellian video platform.

YouTube is owned by Google, the Big Tech monolith that has recently been exposed by a whistle-blower for systemic bias against conservative and liberty-minded voices. A top Google executive was also caught bragging on hidden camera about the company’s plans to undermine democracy and prevent President Donald Trump from obtaining re-election in 2020.
