YouTube will continue purging content, but now it will target content which doesn’t necessarily violate its policies.
In recent months, YouTube has waged war on “conspiracy” and right-wing videos. Now, it’s doubling down by introducing a new policy to ban content which promotes the superiority of certain groups to others signaled by its announcement to ban content promoting one group as superior to another “in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.”
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.”
Last week, conservative personality Steven Crowder got into a heated online scuffle with Vox journalist Carlos Maza. During this exchange, many leftist pundits argued that Crowder used offensive remarks against Maza, thus necessitating some type of disciplinary action from social media giants. Like clockwork, they pressured YouTube to demonetize the right-wing content creator’s content on YouTube.
YouTube touched on the Crowder incident.
In the case of Crowder’s channel, a thorough review over the weekend found that individually, the flagged videos did not violate our Community Guidelines. However, in the subsequent days, we saw the widespread harm to the YouTube community resulting from the ongoing pattern of egregious behavior, took a deeper look, and made the decision to suspend monetization. In order to be considered for reinstatement, all relevant issues with the channel need to be addressed, including any videos that violate our policies, as well as things like offensive merchandise.
With the 2020 elections fast approaching, social media giants have been doubling down on censoring politically incorrect commentators such as Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer. The unconventional approaches used by the New Right on social media played a significant role in getting Trump elected in 2016.
As a result, social media has fully embraced political correctness culture and has worked hard to muzzle shut those who dare to deviate from PC standards. This trend will likely continue well into 2020.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
