Ask Your Normie Friends About Big Tech

I have decided to bother some of my friends by…

asking them about social media. It is a little brand awareness game where I ask my normie friends whether they know of any competitor to YouTube or Facebook.

It would seem to me that these two have a virtual monopoly on online video sharing and interpersonal communication.

Few of my normie friends have ever heard of platforms such as GAB or Bitchute, or the fact they were deplatformed by Big Tech companies, among them Google.

The latter, as the parent company of YouTube, denied a service to a potential competitor. This may be legal but monopolies certainly aren’t encouraged in other fields. Mind you, bakers can be tried in court for refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple.

A related poll I ran on Twitter, I got 16 respondents:

YouTube Leads Proudly the Mass Censorship of Right-Wingers by Big Tech

Do you think you still have a free speech if your voice is being censored by communication companies that have a virtual monopoly in your country, and are controlled by your political opponents?

Nick Fuentes, a right-wing rant boy got his YouTube channel vapourized by Google the other day because he has been a very naughty apparently:

“This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy prohibiting hate speech,” the notice reads.

The removal comes just over one month after Google opted to demonetize the channel and end the far-right figure’s ability to earn revenue from advertisements.

At the time, a video on Fuentes’ channel centered around Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was also removed for violating the site’s rules on hate speech.

In a statement to the Daily Dot, a YouTube spokesperson confirmed that the channel was terminated after receiving three strikes for hate speech within a 90-day period.

Hate speech? That’s serious. As someone, who has listened to Nick Fuentes for a while, I must say he mocked mass immigration. Mocking mass immigration is off limits on YouTube now. But it ain’t hate speech.

On Bitchute  (The Bitchute mobile app was deplatformed by big tech and is not available on Android or iOS devices) there is a video of Nick Fuentes saying that the pressure to censor him came from timid liberals, that is conservatives rather than the left wingers, after he criticized some of them over their support for mass immigration.

In other news:

YouTube has removed a video of Rand Paul using the name of alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella on the Senate floor, saying it contravened its community guidelines.

“We’ve removed hundreds of videos and over ten thousand comments that contained the name. Video uploaders have the option to edit their videos to exclude the name and reupload,” Ivy Choi, a spokeswoman, told Politico.
