YouTube Just Censored a Video Criticizing Censorship! by The Elephant's Child

YouTube has just censored a video criticizing censorship.  Yes, the one just below titled “the Dark Art of Political Intimidation.”

Beginning in 2010, the IRS intentionally targeted conservative nonprofit groups and delayed approving their tax-exempt non-profit status an attempt to render them politically impotent during the 2012 election, Strassel explains.

In Wisconsin, a Democratic prosecutor went after conservatives in a shadow campaign finance investigation. The real reason for the pre-dawn raids on conservative activists’ homes and the subsequent gag orders legally compelling them to stay quiet about it all were to enact revenge for their support of Republican Gov. Scott Walker, she says.

These are two of several examples she highlights in this five-minute-long video decrying censorship of one’s political opponents, which YouTube decided to censor by placing it on “restricted mode.”It’s common for schools and parents to place their YouTube account on restricted mode to keep obscene or graphic content away from children. But PragerU’s videos, including the aforementioned one about censorship, are G-rated, so it’s unclear why the video platform is placing these videos on the naughty list.

Goodness, don’t let children see the short educational videos that Prager University creates. Here’s a list of the naughty and salacious videos from which children must be protected. Sound scary?

YouTube is a Google company. Google had many subsidiaries, and last year reorganized with the parent company becoming Alphabet Inc.  Visit Wikipedia.org and search for Alphabet Inc.

According to Wikipedia, Larry Page, Google CEO, said that “the establishment of Alphabet was prompted by a desire to make the core Google Internet services business “cleaner and more accountable” while allowing greater autonomy to group companies that operate in businesses other than internet services.”

A new study from SEO Competitive Analysis Company CanIRank finds that, confirming many conservatives suspicions, Google searches favor left-wing content.

It finds that top search results are almost 40 percent more likely to contain pages with a “Left” or “Far Left” slant than they are to contain pages from the right. Searchers are 65 percent more likely to encounter liberal search results than conservative search results among the five first returns to their inquiry.

Moreover, 16 percent of political keywords contain no right-leaning pages at all within the first page of results.

Are these findings the result of politically neutral rules for determining which results appear first? The study concludes they are not.

Google highlights two key determinants for ranking content: (1) the number and quality of links pointing to a page and (2) the content (i.e., relevancy and comprehensiveness). According to the study, pages demonstrating a left or far left political slant made it into the top results with significantly fewer external links compared to pages rated balanced. And pages with a right-leaning slant needed still more links to make it into the top results.

In the case of actual content, conservative websites were more comprehensive, which they measured by number of words, yet they were less highly ranked. The study also considered the secondary factors in Google ranking. Both sides of the  political spectrum agreed on where sites ranked in the study. Google appears to be biased towards the left. Voters get much of their information from search engines about elections and campaigns. This is not a minor thing, though many of us know to just keep going down the list until we reach a reliable website.

I use Google and Bing. As far as I know there is no search engine that favors conservatives, nor should there be! Conservatives don’t want to censor anyone. Forewarned is forearmed. If you know that the first responses are going to be Leftist, you can keep going until you find a website you trust more.

There is a sector of the Left that has become far more aggressive, and are fairly open about the fact that they just want to dispose of Conservatism, or anyone who disagrees with them. You see this echoed in our colleges and universities in the “fear” that students have about hearing opinions that disagree with them. They demand that those who can be expected to say things that are not what they are accustomed to should be disinvited and kept from speaking.

Our only defense is public awareness. It should be somewhat obvious where the Left’s urge for complete control ends up. States run by Democrats for years are uniformly basket cases. Venezuela is convulsing before our eyes, and history has all sorts of proof. Freedom is messy, but it’s the only solution.
