Like many or most commentators anywhere politically to the right of Leon Trotsky, I’ve had my recent censorship issues at YouTube. Beyond the tech giant calling it “inappropriate content,” I have no idea why they banned my Prepper Post News episode of November 18, 2020, and imposed a seven-day moratorium on new material from Freedom Prepper. I do know, as does the world, that they now, as of December 9th, will not tolerate any discussion of the 2020 US Presidential Election beyond the narrow confines of the “official” narrative as provided by the DNC and the AP. Seriously, read their statement.
Our Community Guidelines prohibit spam, scams, or other manipulated media, coordinated influence operations, and any content that seeks to incite violence. Since September, we've terminated over 8000 channels and thousands of harmful and misleading elections-related videos for violating our existing policies. Over 77% of those removed videos were taken down before they had 100 views.
We also work to make sure that the line between what is removed and what is allowed is drawn in the right place. Our policies prohibit misleading viewers about where and how to vote. We also disallow content alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. Presidential election. However in some cases, that has meant allowing controversial views on the outcome or process of counting votes of a current election as election officials have worked to finalize counts.
Yesterday was the safe harbor deadline for the U.S. Presidential election and enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect. Given that, we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections. For example, we will remove videos claiming that a Presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come. As always, news coverage and commentary on these issues can remain on our site if there’s sufficient education, documentary, scientific or artistic context.
Nevermind those pending court cases, loaded with mountains of evidence of massive fraud, sufficient to swing the election - the telescreen says the good man won and that is the end of it. No discussion. No dissent and no evidence is allowed. The matter is final. Welcome the great good of the glorious revolution, peasants.
YouTube has been heading hard-left totalitarian for some time now. Read this Guardian article from 2019, an elongated interview with CEO Susan Wojcicki. As indicated by their 12/9/20 policy statement and this interview, they are proud of their thought controls. One assumes Wojcicki is; this theme, as applied particularly to elections, appears to run in her family history.
Wojcicki is of Polish Jewish descent, a fact important enough for Wikipedia to note. She is a champion of “refugees” and the daughter of “refugees.” Her lineage makes her company’s recent statement of election fraud so much more interesting.
In 1947, communists swept to power in Poland, exclusively utilizing a methodology that some might dare to refer to as “fraudulent,” with associated “glitches” and “counting errors,” etc. Again, from Wikipedia, a trusted and unbiased source of all truth:
Opposition candidates and activists were persecuted until election day; only the [Communist] PPR and its allies were allowed to campaign unhindered. The publicized results were falsified, with the official results known to selected government officials long before the actual elections took place and any votes were counted.
The real results were not known to anyone. In areas where the government had sufficient control, some of the ballot boxes were simply destroyed without being counted, or exchanged with boxes filled with prepared votes. Where possible, government officials simply filled in the numbers in the relevant documents as per instructions from Soviet and PPR officials without bothering to count the real votes.
Does any of that sound familiar? Well, no, not according to the AP and YouTube.
One of the national populist parties railroaded aside by the communists was the Polish People’s Party. One of that party’s officials was one Franciszek Wojcicki, one of the opposition leaders regularly persecuted by the communists, maligned with the popular slur, brudny karzeł reakcji, or dirty, spiteful dwarf of reaction (against communism). Franciszek’s relatives fled the tyranny, eventually settling in the United States. His granddaughter, one of them, is the current CEO of YouTube.
Isn’t it interesting how patterns of fraud and control permeate and repeat across different countries in different centuries? I imagine that if Dominion machines had been available in the Forties, the communists would have used them. And, had there been a YouTube back then, they would have banned any and all allegations of reality.
This happens, again and again, even though these people know and understand history, and even though some of them have a direct familial connection to the atrocities of the past. One of the themes I have seized on and continue to repeat is that no sane nation should ever allow the entry or settlement of incompatible “refugees.” Why? Because, no matter who they are, or where they’re from, or what terror they flee, they will always, always, always, seek to recreate in their new nations of occupation, the exact same conditions that caused them to leave their old nations.
If in the United States of 2020-21, Donald Trump and his few allies do not attack and repel the fraud and the coup of November, then the US is essentially over, just as the American nation, long watered down by the Wojcicki’s of the world, is already over. Even if he does and is successful, then all that is bought is a likely four-year reprieve from the almost certainly inevitable. In the end, we may all be doomed to slandered existences as dirty, spiteful dwarves of reaction - and that condition will be relentlessly censored, and worse. These points will be more than worth considering when the next set of nations are formed and defended from the remains of America. Knowledge is power. That is why they hate it.
