Google-YouTube Goes Full Nazi Against Independent Media – Hiding ‘Controversial Content’ And ‘Redirecting’ Searches

Tougher standards: We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.

We’ll begin to roll this new treatment out to videos on desktop versions of YouTube in the coming weeks, and will bring it to mobile experiences soon thereafter. These new approaches entail significant new internal tools and processes, and will take time to fully implement.

In other words ladies an gentlemen if political commentary, or religious commentary, is considered non-compliant with the ideology of the groups they are using to “train” their bots, which they described as “expert NGOs and institutions through our Trusted Flagger program, including the Anti-Defamation League, the No Hate Speech Movement, and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue,” those videos will be hidden, there will be no ability to “share” them using the icons meant for that purpose, the creators won’t be able to monetize them, people will not be able to “like” them, nor have the ability to comment on them.

If that isn’t going full fascist Nazi on Independent media, what would be?
