Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the recent vast demonetization of YouTube videos, why it’s happening and what can be done about it.
As of a few days ago, YouTube brought in the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) to begin mass flagging videos deemed “controversial” in a crack down on so-called “hate speech”.
Interestingly, videos that talk about freedom, are anti-establishment, break down issues with the monetary system and cover everything from conservatism, libertarianism and voluntaryism are considered “controversial content” while AntiFa videos are not. This is the “Ministry of Truth” in action.
While it’s understandable that advertisers would not want to pay those creating violent videos, it doesn’t make sense that basically every independent media is being vastly demonetized.
We Are Change, Press For Truth and channels like Diamond & Silk have been nearly entirely demonetized. WAM has been vastly demonetized as well following a dramatic level of demonetization last November as well. It’s clear that this demonetization is happening almost exclusively to those who don’t carry the official establishment narrative whether you agree with these channels or not.
With new artificial intelligence in play, creators are unable to continue making a living working day and night creating videos that YouTube used to champion.
As only 6% of people actually trust the mainstream media there is a definite crackdown on free speech and anything that’s not “politically correct.” The term “hate speech” is incredibly loosely defined considering violent AntiFa “activists” are calling for attacking anyone they disagree with and are doing fine on this platform while people calling for peace and individual liberty are being silenced.
While we can move to other platforms, it’s incredibly important to not be stuck in our own echo chambers. If we go to another platform that only carries people who largely hold our views, then we are just talking to our self. It’s crucially important that we educate those who don’t agree with us, or at the very least have a conversation but this is making it counter productive to even continue trying to do this. This will further lead to the divide and conquer of us as individuals. When people are afraid to speak the truth because they think they’ll lose their living, a shift is happening before our eyes.
Below we leave many examples of what individuals can do to help us at WAM out as we work 18 hours a day to bring constant information and content as we have for many years.
We also encourage people to help out other channels if not ours as this conversation cannot end here.
Stay tuned for more from WAM! We’re not going anywhere!
