The Demonetization of YouTube is Fast Underway; Dissidents Will Be Silenced

It’s pretty obvious what Google is trying to do here. After the Wall Street Journal began routing out Nazis on YouTube, in an effort to get ads scrubbed from their videos, a massive overhaul of YouTube’s advertising policies began, shortly thereafter. It was incredible, really, as if Google was simply waiting for an excuse.

A number of major advertisers suspended their ad campaigns on YouTube, waiting for Google to get rid of its Nazis. Unlike other social media venues, YouTube is largely dominated by right of center, logic based, thinkers.

Obviously, this was a problem. Ergo, an effort to demonetize free thinkers is underway.

A manager for YouTube posted this kind note last week, warning creators that ad revenues will be fucked until they find the Nazis.

“If you’re seeing fluctuations in your revenue over the next few weeks, it may be because we’re fine tuning our ads systems to address these concerns,”

Nomura believes $GOOGL could lose $750m in revenue this year due to the new witch hunt.

Famous conservative personality, Paul Joseph Watson, posted a picture of his YouTube revenues, after the crackdown, and they’re virtually zero.

On iBankCoin’s channel, which only has around 3,000 subs, our revenues have flatlined as well.

YouTube said they’ve begun to hire 3rd party ‘brand safety’ organizations, who will help eliminate ‘bad actors’ from the platform. How nice.

I expect similar efforts will be made on the web that will take aim at independent media, taking away their financing and the incentive to create content.

    Paging ferd and traderconfessions to give us an opinion, and possibly a permission, to talk about the outstanding and protected shitizens at Joogle management who took it upon themselves to stamp-out anti-zionist sentiment by censoring free speech.

    Youtube is 100% allowed to do this. They could even purge all users except Black Lifes Matters if they wanted. The remedy for this crackdown on independent thought is that another company to pop up that allows free speech and won’t censor its users.

    To that end… Does Google have an anti-trust issue?

      However, Youtube should not be 100% allowed this because Google, just as Fakebook, is a CIA operation which in turn is a taxpayer funded agency (besides the fact that CIA is also self-funded by drug and gun trafficking, blackmail, and all sorts of other fun activities). Therefore, and since, joogle is not a private company in true sense, it does not have the privilege to make these policies w/o consulting the general public that is behind the gov’t that enabled this company.

      I vote we move to worldstarhiphop website. This way we can watch political commentary videos and uncensored hood fights.

    Ah, the classic battle between internet content and advertisers. Brands only want to advertise on safe content, but alas, safe content is boring as fuck. I give it 2 years before YouTube has a decent enough competitor who is willing to let content creators post interesting shit and starts to see an exodus of many of its most popular content creators.

    Derp…sounds like you’re always thinking of me. Thanks.. so nice.

    Sac… full of shit.. as usual. Wearing a white hood with your brownshirt today? You’re the best.

    Fly …t’s called capitalism baby… No top-hatted advertiser wants to support what these low-life serial bullshitters are selling. These losers can start a paid subscription service to complete the cuckpot echo chamber. Bye bye Mr. Watson.

    Thanks for making my day with this news.. plus some kick-ass stock moves.
