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.
Gab Attacked in Coordinated Hacking Attempt, Timed to Coincide with CPAC
This hack coincided with Trump’s CPAC speech.
Free speech social media platform Gab was attacked in a coordinated hacking operation sometime this weekend, with malicious actors briefly compromising accounts of prominent users of the platform.
Gab founder Andrew Torba disclosed the cyberattack, revealing that left-wing operatives had sought to compromise both his own Gab account and an archive account reserved for President Donald Trump. The attack compromised Trump’s reserved account minutes before the President was slated to speak on-stage at CPAC- with the timing suggesting the President may announce he’s joining the free speech social media service.
It’s unclear which other accounts were targeted. Torba confirmed that Gab was cooperating with law enforcement in response to the breach. Alt-tech competitor Parler also suffered from frequent data breaches and insecurity, and it may be that powerful institutions determined to take down Parler have shifted their focus to terroristic tactics targeting Gab.
Gab has been targeted on previous occasions by entities that oppose its mission to restore free speech on the internet. Torba’s disclosure of the incident differs greatly from the deceptive business tactics of Facebook and Twitter, which regularly decline to reveal data breaches and sell user information to corporations and governments at a whim and without any user consent.
Big League Politics is monitoring the situation for any further developments.
