YouTube uses arbitrary and unfair rules to silence conservative speech.
Conservatives are starting to stand up to YouTube’s tyranny.
And a leading Republican made a jaw dropping allegation about YouTube’s latest censorship.
YouTube is becoming a destination for political commentary that pierce through the corporate-controlled media’s bubble.
Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee is demanding an explanation for YouTube’s recent actions removing ads from the Breaking Points political podcasts.
Blackburn blasted YouTube saying removing ads from the Breaking Points video shows YouTube is “working with the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) to promote its dangerous viewpoints around the world.”
Breaking Points with Krystal and Saagar is becoming one of the top political podcasts featuring a unique populist perspective on politics.
The hosts, Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti, are refugees from the corporate-controlled media who moved to the freedom of running their own show.
One of their recent topics was the disappearance of Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai.
Shuai, a former number one ranked doubles player, posted on Chinese social media accusing a powerful member of the Chinese Communist Party of sexual assault.
One of the highest profile athletes in China, her posts and mentions of her were scrubbed from the heavily censored Chinese internet.
She disappeared from the public spotlight for two weeks only to resurface with a suspicious prerecorded video saying everything was okay.
Breaking Points covered Shuai’s controversial disappearance on a video and YouTube censored them by demonetizing the video.
Demonetizing prevents the creators of video from making ad revenue on it.
YouTube gave a mealy-mouthed explanation saying that video “isn’t suitable for all advertisers.”
In response, Blackburn not only blasted YouTube but she’s also demanding information on other instances when YouTube has “demonetized, blocked, or deleted content at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party.”
The demonetization of Breaking Points is the latest move by YouTube to curry favor with Chinese Communists.
Earlier YouTube was caught automatically deleting certain comments in Chinese on the platform that were critical of Communist government.
This is another chapter in Big Tech’s Chinese Communist bootlicking.
Every major Big Tech platform censored allegations that the Chinese government was involved in the COVID-19 outbreak.
Desperate to maintain good relations with the government and access to the lucrative Chinese market, Big Tech serves as willing censors for the Communist.
With more politicians like Senator Blackburn putting the heat on YouTube over their cozy relationship with China it remains to be seen if YouTube will change course.
