YouTube Can't Stop Us!

Faith GoldyArchive

Right wing commentators and alternative investigative media outlets are in YouTube's sights. 

After YouTube recently announced a new policy to suppress and demonetize "controversial" videos, The Rebel is taking matters into our own hands. 

We're hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.

We're building an app. That application will host both our free content as well as our subscription paywall shows. However, while our app is going to be world class, it isn't going to be cheap.

Developing the app is going to cost us $120,000.

To integrate it with our video hosting system, and with our payment system, that’s another $19,000.

And once we get up and running, we estimate that’s going to cost $90,000 to build the video player that runs the videos in the app.

To move our 6,500 videos over from YouTube to the app costs about $13,000.

And we have to upgrade our existing TV apps for Roku and Apple TV — that’s $20,000.

Plus $40,000 to upgrade our computer software and servers at our headquarters, to make all of this work.

$302,000: That’s what it costs to make your own conservative alternative to YouTube.

That’s a lot of money. But we're confident we can do it— with our audience and for our audience.

If you believe in our original, fact-driven journalism and conservative commentary and want to help support this new chapter in our media's lifespan, please go to

Help us build the app to protect us from YouTube censorship!

Allan Peterson,

I am not talking about Canadians – I am talking about Canada. We are not and never were a conservative country by comparison to America. We were always more European.

You are basically complaining about what Canada is and always has been. That is why it’s not remotely close regarding liberals being in power vs. conservatives in our history.

I could understand if you were talking about Texas and all of a sudden Liberals took over, but you happen to be living in one of the most liberal/progressive countries in the world and it’s been that way and continued that way since you were born until now in relation to society at the time.

Ah, Jimmy? I think Dan just showed us all that he recognized Canada is nation of brainless socialists.
For example:
“C’mon, there’s only two reasonable explanations for the above:
1/ The fix is in! And has been – somehow – for at least five or six years.
2/ Those people really did vote for the fascist scum because there really are that many brain-dead, brain-washed, useful idiots out there…voting.
Either way – we are so totally f**ked…”

Sounds like he figured it out to me.

Dan Mancuso,

What’s the alternative? People vote and sometimes the results are not what you want on either side. Do you want to take away voting – would that make Canada better to you?

You had your long run with Harper. Now it’s the Liberals’ turn again and eventually there will be a conservative PM again. That’s how it works.

You live in a liberal/progressive country. You need to recognize what Canada is – even if you don’t personally like it.

“YouTube Can’t Stop Us!”
Can’t they?
The problem isn’t YouTube, per se, or Google, or Facebook, or the MSM, or ‘the government’, or their owners and masters, or any other huge, fascist, wealthy and powerful, totalitarian bureaucracy, et al…
The problem is The People:
All the ‘people’ who ‘voted’ for Obama, and the second term…
All the ‘people who ’voted’ for Hillary!
All the ‘people who ’voted’ for Bernie The Socialist – in America!?
All the ‘people who ’voted’ for Wynne, and the second term majority!?
All the ‘people who ’voted’ for Notley’s NDP, in Alberta!?
All the ‘people who ’voted’ for Justin The Fool, another Trudeau, for PM! of Canada!?
All the ‘people who ’voted’ for the NDP/Greeny coalition in BC…
…wait, the NDP/Greeny coalition in BC wasn’t on the ballot!

C’mon, there’s only two reasonable explanations for the above:
1/ The fix is in! And has been – somehow – for at least five or six years.
2/ Those people really did vote for the fascist scum because there really are that many brain-dead, brain-washed, useful idiots out there…voting.
Either way – we are so totally f**ked…

This app will work against the interest of the rebel. Google owns you tube and android. If Google is out to censor the rebel, they will also ban the rebel from being downloaded on the Android store. If this is the case, then the rebel would have wasted a lot of money.

And besides, how will the rebel earn money off you tube ads off an app, if you tube will not be hosting the videos?

Ayan Ray, there are always things that The Rebel has not said and you will always be able to find something that they did not say on any given subject. Can’t say everything, not enough time.

However, what makes you an effing liar is the phrase, " won’t tell you ".

Using the word “won’t” implies they knew something damning to their position but chose not to say it. That means you must have had to know that they knew it.

Ayan Ray, you are a liar.

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.

Kevin J. Johnston of moved over to for video hosting. It’s not nearly as feature-complete as youtube, but it’s very responsive and a lot cheaper than building your own app.

The Rebel should also have presence on (Facebook alternative) and (Twitter alternative). We already know Twitter and FB are censoring more and more.

Ron Shea, you took the words out of my mouth: Dailymotion, …
Rebel could host there, while continuing on Youtube with tamer “light” content.

Ok algorithms are only so good. We need other names for certain things for the time being until the app is up and running. For example instead of turdo= first job and his Chinese name little penis.
For the religion of piss. The secret pork eaters. Nutly code name turkey neck. Wind bag = left wing no nuts. Please add your suggestions

There are other presenters of videos outside of You Tube. “Daily Motion” and “Vimeo” are other alternatives if you do not want videos from ‘The Rebel’ being either censored, edited or deleted and still want to get the message across to the public. Maybe have a chat with their CEO’s.
