What if YouTube decides The Rebel is too hot to handle?

David MenziesMission Specialist
 

YouTube, which is owned by the increasingly left-leaning Google, is tightening its so-called “hate speech” rules and implementing “tougher standards” under the guise of cracking down on terrorism. But that angle is clearly a red herring. 

What YouTube is really concerned about is cracking down on what it calls “potentially controversial ideas.”

Let’s face it— it might only be a matter of time before YouTube decrees that The Rebel is simply too hot to handle and we’ll be deleted from their platform entirely.

If you think that idea is far-fetched, watch as I explain how we’ve already seen hints of this kind of action with one of my videos.

If I’m right, and YouTube was willing to yank a video based on one complaint from one viewer for a reason that actually does not violate its own terms of use, can you imagine what the left-leaning YouTube of the near-future might look like?

I think that YouTube could well be devoid of any and all arguments that fly in the face of leftwing dogma all because this entity doesn’t want social justice warriors and campus cry-babies to experience hurt feelings.

If you care about the Rebel or, for that matter, freedom of speech, please visit TheyCantStopUs.com to find out how you can help!

“to help out the Law abiding non believers of the current liberalism”

Law abiding?

Ezra Levant and the like won’t tell you what Kevin Johnston said in one of his Freedom Report videos:

“It is time for us to take our masculinity back and beat the living hell out of these [Muslims]. Pin them down on the ground, and beat them until they pass out. And when they’re passed out, you beat them further; and when they’re on the ground passed out, kick them, break a kneecap, break an elbow, press their hands backwards turn their wrists sideways, start breaking these guys down.”

Johnston was recently charged under Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code because he is promoting hatred and advocating violence, NOT because he is criticizing Islam.

Terry Macleod…2 days ago..The Rebel Media is doing a great job..I will be focusing more on the positives and strengths that I can muster up to help out the Law abiding non believers of the current liberalism that has reached the PMO of Canada….the stink starts from the head of the rotted fish and works it’s way down to the tail..Someone in trudeau’s cartel must have at least some sort of decency to come forward…Or is there at least one?

“Menzies, you described the situation perfectly, adding that a Dictator like Trudeau needs censorship to sneak his agenda through his uninformed Canadian citizens”.
Exactly right Ron Joseph.

You still at it Ayan? speaking of uninformed Canadians.

Drew said, “The idiots do not get why cable is losing people left and right.”

I dropped my cable TV in 2006 because it was loaded with channels of garbage, and the only real interesting TV to me was the news, and even it is crap because it is all left wing lies and political correctness filth. That is why I left cable. Not sure about other people, though.

Having gone completely Internet in 2006, I have not regretted my decision at all.

Space Moose said, “Yes I keep saying it. Do you know how much market share the rebel will lose without Android? The app is not worth the risk.”

Then for what platform(s) do you suggest The Rebel develop their software? Or should they even do any at all?

What is your recommendation, Space Moose?

Andrew Stephenson why were so many on the left whining when Harper cut funds for Global Warming propaganda magazines, yet they loved it when Sun News was denied a fair shot? Those garbage magazines did not have enough support to survive.
commented 2017-08-13 20:09:53 -0400
Damn glad they will have their own means for videos, and when the government tries to shut them down under false pretenses Andrew will claim they had no support.
commented 2017-08-13 20:08:37 -0400
Andrew Stephenson that is complete and utter bullshit. They never got a fair shot and they played to more people than the damn liberal media does. You need a dose of reality. And you just described the liberals not the conservatives in Canada. Who does the censoring, not the right, THE LEFT! Lots of left wing media gets handouts and you know it, they would not survive without them. CBC gets little for viewers. So go preach that garbage to them. If other media is so great why are people forced to subsidize them and have them on their cable?

There is no question that Uber – Cuck “bin Zoolander” Trudeau and his cabnet of Islamic thought police Gestapo will be working in conjunction with YouTube to ban The Rebel ….any and all anti PC freedom fighters have to know that so the question is how to react and respond.

" Rick Plesnik commented 1 hour ago
Remember the furor over Sun News? The lefties got side swiped when The Rebel came into being and they’re pissed at the presentation of alternative viewpoints, whether one agrees with them or not. A free society will present opposing views to encourage debate to find a common ground. "

That would be fine, were it the Rebels’ goal to do so. Instead the mission seems to be to pretty much confirm the beliefs of far-right audiences, with no interest in broader discussion. That’s one of the reasons why the Rebel’s moving towards a small, subscriber-only opinion page rather than a broad audience, open format. Instead of trying to appeal to the broad audience they’ve moved further and further right, to the point where it’s just whining about Trudeau, Notley, and Muslims. It’s not intended to foster discussion, but merely give a fairly small segment of the population confirmation in their worldview. Do it with sufficient fervency, and you can convince them to pay to subscribe.

They have to do this actually. Mushiness won’t result in subscribers, and the Canadian right wing market simply isn’t large enough to support a free Breitbart style site. For all the bluster of youtube subscribers, they typically get less than 100k views per video, and fully monetized, that’s worth 100-200 bucks. Not much, really, for what they’re running. Subscription is almost necessary.

Playing to a broad audience, trying to actually foster discussion, and they’d have the same issue that the various Conservative political parties have with this base, they’ll lose them…. they don’t want discussion, they want confirmation, and will tune out if forced to confront actual dissenting opinion. They don’t want discussion of what happened in Virginia. They want confirmation that “Antifa” is still nefarious, just as they don’t want Andrew Scheer supporting Paris, they want confirmation climate change is a hoax.

Sun News fell into that same trap. They played to the base, didn’t try to expand beyond it, and found that the base wasn’t big enough. Rather than compromise, they tried to game the CRTC, but lost. Eventually they gave up.

A free society will present opposing views to encourage debate to find a common ground. Jihadi Justin and the lefties that support him do NOT want opposing views nor free speech for that matter. M 103 is going to morph into a dictatorship to enforce any criticism of the Liebranos, not just so called “Islamophobia”!

Space Moose said … yet again, “If Google want to shut down the rebel, then they can stop the rebel app from being downloaded on the Android store.”

You keep saying that over and over and over.

There are more platforms than just Android and iPhone!

So what if they do, does Google control the whole Internet?

I once had a video removed because I was discussing hate speech (Westboro), so I know the feeling. Though Rebel Media leans right of me, I respect your right to free speech on Google and elsewhere. I hope YouTube doesn’t take away your rights. If they do, I know you will fight.

If Google want to shut down the rebel, then they can stop the rebel app from being downloaded on the Android store. If this happens, the app will not fix anything. It will end up wasting a lot of time and money.

Just host the videos somewhere else other than on a Google owned site.
