YouTube’s New Hate Speech Policy Bans Pointing Out Illegal Immigrants

Published

YouTube Illegal Immigration Hate Speech

YouTube’s hate speech policies now forbid users from discussing the immigration status of individuals, causing some to wonder whether news coverage mentioning illegal immigrants who are convicted criminals or suspected of committing crimes will result in a ban.

Yesterday YouTube relented to gay Vox journalist Carlos Maza’s ceaseless ranting and agreed to demonetize Steven Crowder’s YouTube channel, because according to Maza, Crowder was mean to him. Now, YouTube’s hate speech policies are under increasing scrutiny, and social media professionals are wondering whether illegal immigration will become a taboo subject.

Derek Utley, a social media professional who created X Strategies, a social media company representing several prominent conservatives, wrote on Facebook that “If you discuss or criticize someone’s immigration status, YouTube will Demonetize you as it is now hate speech to discuss someone’s immigration status.”

It is unclear if this is a new change, prompted by YouTube’s reexamination of its hate speech policies provoked by Maza and his legions of supporters. It is also unclear what this may look like in terms of enforcement.

Big League Politics contacted Google, the parent company of YouTube, for comment regarding whether users will be allowed to question or reference the immigration status of criminals or suspects, or whether this will too be considered hate speech. Google did not provide an immediate response.

Maza was unhappy that YouTube allowed popular conservative comedian Steven Crowder to call Maza a “gay Latino” and a “lispy Latino” while deriding his journalism. The big tech platform initially claimed that Crowder’s videos did not violate its hate speech policies, prompting Maza to use colorful language to bash the company. YouTube eventually gave in and demonetized Crowder’s channel, and started what some are calling the “Vox Adpocalypse” by demonetizing and banning dozens of channels and videos.

Still, this was not enough to please Maza.

Big League Politics reported:

YouTube gave in, but that still was not good enough for the leftist, anti-First Amendment activist at Vox.

“So the fuck what. Basically all political content gets ‘demonetized.’ Crowder’s revenue stream isn’t from YouTube ads. It’s from selling merch and “Socialism Is For Fags” [sic] shirts to millions of loyal customers, that [YouTube] continues to drive to his channel. For free,” he said.

Perhaps Maza – like an adult – should simply logoff if Crowder’s content offends him so much. Maybe he should consider a less public career, as public figures – especially those who work in politics – are typically faced with similar situations.

This latest wave of censorship will hopefully raise eyebrows within the Trump administration and inspire action on the big tech campaign to censor conservative voices.
