Leftist Censors to Support Communist Line


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© April 26, 2020

 

A FEE article points that Youtube owned by Google who is owned by Alphabet is preparing to censor any video that does not tow the Communist World Health Organization (WHO) line on COVID-19. FEE author Dan Sanchez points impending Youtube censorship is something you can nothing about because it is a privately owned company. Meaning the government can’t censor Youtube, but Youtube can censor whomever they please. Even if that means favoring Communist propaganda over truth.

 

YOU – a private citizen – can abandon Youtube during censorship to more friendly video platforms such as Vimeo, Dailymotion, DTube, BitChute, Brighteon, Liveleak, etc.

 

I’m also cross posting an Activist Post article that not only touches on Youtube censorship but examines some of the WHO’s Liberty-robbing demands (e.g. no alcohol during COVID), WHO bad-science idiocy to support Communist China, local police persecuting teenager for posting their Instagram experience on Instagram AND Harvard upset closed Public Schools are allowing homeschooled students to bypass Leftist-society brainwashing.

YouTube to Ban Content That Contradicts WHO on COVID-19, Despite the UN Agency’s Catastrophic Track Record of Misinformation

The policy represents a betrayal of the pioneering platform’s founding principles.

Soon, YouTubers will be silenced if they don’t agree with the United Nations on public health. As The Verdict reports:

 

YouTube will ban any content containing medical advice that contradicts World Health Organisation (WHO) coronavirus recommendations, according to CEO Susan Wojcicki.

 

Wojcicki announced the policy on CNN on Sunday. WHO is an agency of the UN, charged with overseeing global public health. The Verdict report continues:

 

Wojcicki said that the Google-owned video streaming platform would be “removing information that is problematic”.

 

She told host Brian Stelter that this would include “anything that is medically unsubstantiated”.

 

“So people saying ‘take vitamin C; take turmeric, we’ll cure you’, those are the examples of things that would be a violation of our policy,” she said.

 

“Anything that would go against World Health Organisation recommendations would be a violation of our policy.”

 

While the decision has been welcomed by many, some have accused the streaming giant of censorship.

 

To be clear, for American YouTubers, this kind of censorship is not a violation of their constitutional right of free speech. The First Amendment protects citizens against government censorship, and YouTube is a private platform. Were the US government to force the private owners of YouTube to continue broadcasting certain videos against their will, that would be much more a violation of the First Amendment.

 

While YouTube’s decision is not unconstitutional, it is unwise, exhibiting far too much deference to central authority in general and to WHO especially.

 

WHO’s Track Record on the Issue

 

The World Health Organization is far from infallible. Its handling of information throughout the coronavirus emergency has been a long string of failures. As policy analyst Ross Marchand has recounted here on FEE last week, WHO failed to raise the alarm as the coronavirus rapidly spread through China during the crucial early period of the global crisis in January of this year. Then, as Marchand wrote:

 

The global bureaucracy uncritically reported that Chinese authorities had seen “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus” on January 14, just one day after acknowledging the first case outside of China (in Thailand). WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus praised Chinese President Xi Jinping for his “political commitment” and “political leadership” despite these repeated, reprehensible attempts to keep the world in the dark about the coronavirus.

 

President Donald Trump recently announced that the US would cease its funding of WHO over its many coronavirus-related failures.

 

And it is not just American conservatives who have been critical. As FEE’s Jon Miltimore wrote a month ago:

 

Our World in Data, an online publication based at the University of Oxford, announced on Tuesday that it had stopped relying on World Health Organization (WHO) data for its models, citing errors and other factors.

 

This raises an interesting question: would YouTube censor Oxford if it posted a video on the coronavirus issue with recommendations based on data that contradicts WHO’s?

 

As Miltimore wrote, “Recent reports suggest US intelligence agencies relied heavily on WHO in its national assessment of the COVID-19 threat.”

 

This is gravely concerning because bad information leads to bad policies. This is true not only for government policy (like mayors, governors, and heads of state deciding to largely shut down the economy in their jurisdiction), but for the policies of private decision-makers like doctors, business-owners, and individuals making decisions about the health and overall lives of themselves and their families.

 

Indeed, WHO’s misinformation early in the crisis squandered the most precious part of the world’s prep time, which likely crippled the public’s responses and may have cost many lives.

 

YouTube risks compounding that tragedy by now insisting that the public’s response to the coronavirus emergency conforms even more strictly with WHO’s dubious pronouncements. Wojcicki wants to protect WHO’s recommendations from contradiction. But WHO’s recommendations are necessarily informed by WHO’s information, which has proven to be extremely suspect. Sheltering untrustworthy pronouncements risks amplifying their dangerous influence.

 

Why Censorship Is Counter-Productive

 

So, it is ironic that YouTube justifies this policy in the name of protecting the public from dangerous misinformation.

 

It is true that many videos contradicting official pronouncements are themselves full of medical quackery and other misleading falsehoods. But, censorship is the worst way to combat them.

 

For one, censorship can actually boost the perceived credibility of an untruth. Believers interpret it as validation: evidence that they are onto a truth that is feared by the powers-that-be. And they use that interpretation as a powerful selling point in their underground evangelism.

 

Censorship also insulates falsehoods from debunking, allowing them to circulate largely uncriticized in the dark corners of public discourse.

 

This makes censorship especially counterproductive because it is open-air debunking that is one of the most effective ways to counter misinformation and bad ideas. As Justice Louis Brandeis expressed in a US Supreme Court opinion, the ideal remedy for bad speech, “is more speech, not enforced silence.”

 

Again, YouTube has a right to set the terms of service of its own website. But the general principle applies here as well: the truth has a much better fighting chance with a proliferation of competing voices than with inquisitorial efforts to circumscribe discourse within a narrow orthodoxy.

 

A Systematic Problem

 

Moreover, WHO’s track record of misinformation is not exceptional among government organizations in neither its degree of error nor in its disastrous impact. Governments and the experts they employ not only get things wrong but have frequently proven to be fundamentally wrong-headed on big questions.

 

To take another example in the realm of public health, it is increasingly widely recognized that the high-carb, low-fat diet recommendations, as depicted by the USDA’s “Food Pyramid,” and successfully promoted for decades to the population by the US government and the most respected authorities on dietary science and epidemiology, was basically backward. Science journalist Gary Taub tells the whole story of bad science, corrupt influence, and obtuse orthodoxy in his book Good Calories, Bad Calories.

 

Again, bad information leads to bad advice which leads to bad choices. So how much illness and even death was caused by generations of Americans uncritically swallowing “official” diet advice and by Americans largely only having one choice on the “menu” of diet advice?

 

The more we centralize decision-making and the management of actionable information, the wider the scope of the damage caused by any single error. But if we let a thousand errors bloom along with a thousand truths, any single error will be circumscribed in its damage and more likely to be corrected through experience and counter-argument.

 

Knowledge Problems

 

Champions of policies like YouTube’s like to cast the issue in simplistic terms: as a black-and-white battle between respectable experts and wild-eyed crackpots. But the issue is more complex than that.

 

It is just as often a matter of overweening technocrats making pronouncements on matters that are way beyond them in complexity, that involve factors that fall way outside their domain of expertise, and that drastically impact the lives of millions or even billions. For example: a few dozen epidemiologists, with limited understanding of economics and a great many other relevant disciplines, holding sway over whole economies.

 

It is also a matter of dissenting experts being silenced along with the actual crackpots.

 

And, perhaps most fundamentally, it is a matter of weakening the individual’s ability to discern between truth and falsehood, good advice and bad, by denying them the responsibility and practice of doing so in the first place—of turning self-reliant, free men and women into irresponsible wards to be led by the nose like dumb, deferential livestock by their “expert” caretakers.

 

That is not where we are, but that is the direction that the rigid enforcement of centralized orthodoxies tends toward.

 

A Challenge

 

Let’s choose a different direction. YouTube, do better. Trust your users more. Treat them like human beings with all the capacities for learning, growth, discourse, and cooperation that are the distinctive glories of being human.

 

After all, that is what made you great in the first place. Your very name is derived from your original faith in the individual. YouTube (a crowd-sourced, individual-driven, pluralistic platform) is what made the boob tube (centralized, institutionalized, and homogenizing broadcast television) largely obsolete. As such, you had a starring role in the internet’s democratization of information and learning.

 

Don’t betray that legacy. Not now. Not when we need open platforms for the free flow of information and discourse more than ever.

Coronavirus Response: Ban Alcohol, Free Speech, and Homeschooling (This Week’s Dystopian News)

 

Freedom Gagged

 

By Simon Black, Sovereign Man

April 24, 2020

Activist Post

 

For this week’s round-up of articles, we’re taking a look at some of the things the government thinks should be banned in response to coronavirus.

 

WHO urges governments to ban alcohol during lockdown

 

Last week we talked about how the World Health Organization was coming for your sick family members.

 

This week, they want your booze.

 

WHO says that alcohol compromises the immune system. And since we are fighting a virus, they think that prohibition is necessary.

 

In fact, alcohol restrictions can be justified by governments for the same reason coronavirus lockdowns are needed.

 

WHO notes that even in good times, alcohol is the cause of major health issues, addiction, and death. Alcohol accounts for 3 million deaths per year worldwide– far more than the coronavirus.

 

So it almost seems like WHO’s argument for banning alcohol has little to do with the coronavirus.

 

If it’s all about good health and saving lives, why not mandate a WHO-approved diet and exercise regimen for the masses as well? Why not ban sugar while they’re at it?

 

Where does the madness stop?

 

Click here to read the full story.

 

Not that you can disagree with the WHO anyhow…

 

Speaking of which, it’s difficult to even disagree with the WHO anymore; YouTube’s CEO indicated yesterday that her video platform would delete any content that goes against official WHO guidance.

 

Specifically she told CNN: “Anything that goes against WHO recommendations would be a violation of our policy.”

 

Bear in mind that the WHO was totally incompetent, especially in the early days of this pandemic. Here’s a quick review:

 

December 31: China first notifies WHO of the outbreak

 

January 5: WHO “does not recommend any specific measures for travellers” and “advises against the application of any travel or trade restrictions on China”

January 23: Even as China begins its lockdown of Wuhan and the virus spreads across Asia, WHO still insists “it is still too early to declare a PHEIC” [Public Health Emergency of International Concern].

January 30: WHO still “does not recommend any travel or trade restriction” and praises the Chinese government’s “commitment to transparency.”

February 27: After many countries began introducing travel restrictions, WHO lamented that these restrictions would lead to “unnecessary interference with international traffic, including negative repercussions on the tourism sector.”

March 11: After more than 100,000 cases in dozens of countries worldwide, WHO finally declares this a global pandemic.

Oh I almost forgot: the WHO is the same organization that made a brutal murderer– former Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe– one of its GOODWILL ambassadors! You can’t make this stuff up.

 

And now YouTube wants to ban content that disagrees with an organization that is corrupt and incompetent.

Police threaten arrest for Instagram post about coronavirus

 

Amyiah Cohoon is a high school sophomore who went on a band trip to Disney World in March.

 

When she came back home she developed a fever and dry cough and doctors “concluded that her symptoms matched those of COVID-19.”

 

Amyiah posted a picture from the Disney trip on Instagram with a caption telling her friends she had Covid-19 and would not be able to see anyone for a while she quarantined herself.

 

After a short stay in the hospital, Amyiah posted a picture from her stay, again with a caption that she was recovering from Covid-19.

 

The next day, a Sheriff’s Deputy knocked on the family’s door. He demanded that Amyiah delete the Instagram posts, or else he would cite the family for disorderly conduct and “start taking people to jail.”

 

The family offered to show the Deputy the documents from the hospital proving that doctors believed Amyiah had Covid-19. The Deputy was not interested.

 

He said the Sheriff told him to make sure the posts were deleted, because the county officially had no confirmed cases of Covid-19.

 

Intimidated, and threatened with jail, Amyiah compiled and deleted the posts.

 

Turns out it was the school superintendent who contacted the Sheriff about the Instagram post who claimed it was Amyiah’s “foolish means to get attention.”

Harvard professor: parents can’t be trusted with their kids

 

With American schools closed, homeschooling is the new normal for many families. This trend was already increasing, and will probably be accelerated by fears of the continuing spread of coronavirus.

 

But a Harvard professor Elizabeth Bartholet, the faculty director of the Child Advocacy Program at the law school, is calling for a ban on homeschooling.

 

She says that homeschooling, “not only violates children’s right to a meaningful education and their right to be protected from potential child abuse, but may keep them from contributing positively to a democratic society.”

 

She adds that a large percentage of homeschool families are driven by conservative Christian beliefs, which she seems to think constitutes child abuse. . .

 

Professor Bartholet says that some parents are deliberately trying to keep their kids from the mainstream culture taught in schools which includes “democratic values, ideas about nondiscrimination and tolerance of other people’s viewpoints.”

 

Yep. She’s all about tolerance of other people’s viewpoints. As long as those viewpoints conform with her own. Otherwise she’s not tolerant.

 

It is hard to imagine that this is a real person, and not a caricature villain created by Ayn Rand.

Insider Blows Whistle & Exec Reveals Google Plan to Prevent “Trump situation” in 2020 on Hidden Cam

 

By Staff Report

June 24, 2019

Project Veritas

 

BIG UPDATE: YouTube has REMOVED the video from their platform. The video is still available on this website page.

UPDATE 1: Congressman Louie Gohmert issued a statement, saying “Google should not be deciding whether content is important or trivial and they most assuredly should not be meddling in our election process. They need their immunity stripped…”

 

UPDATE 2: Google executive Jen Gennai RESPONDED to the video, saying, “I was having a casual chat with someone at a restaurant and used some imprecise language. Project Veritas got me. Well done.”

 

  • Insider: Google “is bent on never letting somebody like Donald Trump come to power again.”

 

  • Google Head of Responsible Innovation Says Elizabeth Warren “misguided” on “breaking up Google”

 

  • Google Exec Says Don’t Break Us Up: “smaller companies don’t have the resources” to “prevent next Trump situation”

 

  • Insider Says PragerU And Dave Rubin Content Suppressed, Targeted As “Right-Wing”

 

  • LEAKED Documents Highlight “Machine Learning Fairness” and Google’s Practices to Make Search Results “fair and equitable”

 

  • Documents Appear to Show “Editorial” Policies That Determine How Google Publishes News

 

  • Insider: Google Violates “letter of the law” and “spirit of the law” on Section 230

 

[HERE THE NOW CENSORED YOUTUBE VIDEO VERSION WOULD APPEAR. Above is the Project Veritas direct link and embed.]

 

(New York City) — Project Veritas has released a new report on Google which includes undercover video of a Senior Google Executive, leaked documents, and testimony from a Google insider.  The report appears to show Google’s plans to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections and “prevent” the next “Trump situation.”

 

The report includes undercover footage of longtime Google employee and Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai saying:

 

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”

 

Jen Gennai Screen Shot

 

Said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe:

 

“This is the third tech insider who has bravely stepped forward to expose the secrets of Silicon Valley.  These new documents, supported by undercover video, raise questions of Google’s neutrality and the role they see themselves fulfilling in the 2020 elections.”

 

Jen Gennai is the head of “Responsible Innovation” for Google, a sector that monitors and evaluates the responsible implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.  In the video, Gennai says Google has been working diligently to “prevent” the results of the 2016 election from repeating in 2020:

 

“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.”

 

“We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?”

 

Google: Artificial Intelligence Is For A “fair and equitable” State

 

According to the insider, Machine Learning Fairness is one of the many tools Google uses to promote a political agenda.  Documents leaked by a Google informant elaborate on Machine Learning Fairness and the “algorithmic unfairness” that AI product intervention aims to solve:

 

Definition of Algorithmic Unfairness Screen-Shot

 

Google Screen-Shot

 

The insider showed Google search examples that show Machine Learning Fairness in action.

 

Multiple Google Screen-Shot

 

“The reason we launched our A.I. principles is because people were not putting that line in the sand, that they were not saying what’s fair and what’s equitable so we’re like, well we are a big company, we’re going to say it.” – Jen Gennai, Head Of Responsible Innovation, Google

 

The Google insider explained the impact of artificial intelligence and Machine Learning Fairness:

 

“They’re going to redefine a reality based on what they think is fair and based upon what they want, and what and is part of their agenda.”

 

Determining credible news and an editorial agenda. . .

 

Additional leaked documents detail how Google defines and prioritizes content from different news publishers and how its products feature that content.  One document, called the “Fake News-letter” explains Google’s goal to have a “single point of truth” across their products.

 

Fwd: Fake News-letter Screen-Shot

 

Another document received by Project Veritas explains the “News Ecosystem” which mentions “editorial guidelines” that appear to be determined and administered internally by Google.  These guidelines control how content is distributed and displayed on their site.

 

News Ecosystem Screen-Shot

 

The leaked documents appear to show that Google makes news decisions about what news they promote and distribute on their site.

 

Comments made by Gennai raise similar questions.  In a conversation with Veritas journalists, Gennai explains that “conservative sources” and “credible sources” don’t always coincide according to Google’s editorial practices.

 

“We have gotten accusations of around fairness is that we’re unfair to conservatives because we’re choosing what we find as credible news sources and those sources don’t necessarily overlap with conservative sources …”

 

The insider shed additional light on how YouTube demotes content from influencers like Dave Rubin and Tim Pool:

 

“What YouTube did is they changed the results of the recommendation engine. And so what the recommendation engine is it tries to do, is it tries to say, well, if you like A, then you’re probably going to like B. So content that is similar to Dave Rubin or Tim Pool, instead of listing Dave Rubin or Tim Pool as people that you might like, what they’re doing is that they’re trying to suggest different, different news outlets, for example, like CNN, or MSNBC, or these left leaning political outlets.”

 

Internal Google Document: “People Like Us Are Programmed”

 

An additional document Project Veritas obtained, titled “Fair is Not the Default” says “People (like us) are programmed” after the results of machine learning fairness.  The document describes how “unconscious bias” and algorithms interact.

 

Unconscious Bias Screen-Shot

 

Veritas is the “Only Way”

 

Said the insider:

 

“The reason why I came to Project Veritas is that you’re the only one I trust to be able to be a real investigative journalist.  Investigative journalist is a dead career option, but somehow, you’ve been able to make it work.  And because of that I came to Project Veritas because I knew that this was the only way that this story would be able to get out to the public.”

 

“I mean, this is a behemoth, this is a Goliath, I am but a David trying to say that the emperor has no clothes. And, um, being a small little ant I can be crushed, and I am aware of that. But, this is something that is bigger than me, this is something that needs to be said to the American public.”

 

Project Veritas intends to continue investigating abuses in big tech companies and encourages more Silicon Valley insiders to share their stories through their Be Brave campaign.

 

As of publishing, Google did not respond to Project Veritas’ request for comment.  Additional leaked Google documents can be viewed HERE.

If Israel Blamed for Gaza Violence, IT’S A LIE


By John R. Houk

© June 1, 2018

 

When you hear a Palestinian, Leftist MSM or the auspices of the United Nations that Israel exacted human rights violations against the so-called peaceful demonstration on the Gaza/Israel border, THEY ARE LYING!

 

The proof is embodied in a couple relatively short videos entitled, “Behind The Smokescreen PT 1” and “Behind The Smokescreen PT 2: The Great Deception”.

 

You could have watched videos on Youtube, but guess what? The censors pulled the Channel of Producer Pierre Rehov in a Multiculturalist censorship move to probably keep the Hamas/Palestinian terrorist narrative going to the detriment of Israel and gullible Westerners.

 

The good news: You can still access the documentaries on Vimeo which you can watch here:

While the UN are condemning Israel for defending itself against terror organization Hamas, the rest of the world has fallen into the Muslim terrorists’ propaganda. Those images speak for themselves. The so-called “Palestinians” has one ambition. To obliterate Israel. Their supporters have the same.

‘Our newest army, which is almighty, can do scary and terrible things’

 

By ART MOORE 

May 30, 2018

WND

 

See Pierre Rehov’s two-part documentary “Behind the Smokescreen” and “The Great Deception”:

 

[Blog Editor: At this point WND appears to have combined parts 1 & 2 as one video. I couldn’t figure how to embed the WND video (22:36).]

 

Award-winning French filmmaker Pierre Rehov caused a stir when he produced a short movie called “Behind the Smoke Screen” featuring exclusive footage from inside the Gaza Strip exposing the propaganda tactics of Hamas aimed at changing the international perception of the six-week protest dubbed the “Great March of Return.”

 

In a sequel called “The Great Deception,” he juxtaposes U.N. condemnations of Israel for using force when its border was breached May 14 with footage of violent protests and Hamas propaganda.

 

Apparently Rehov’s second video was too much for YouTube, which shut down his account Wednesday “for violating YouTube’s community guidelines.”

 

Rehov wrote to his followers: “My Youtube account has been closed by Youtube. They got down my videos one after the other, and finally closed the account. You can still watch some of my work here: https://t.co/xbQ3s2mlnF

 

WND, before Rehov’s account was shut down, downloaded his two-part series, which can be viewed at the top of the page.

 

After releasing the first video, Rehov told the Jerusalem Post he did it “because I observed many times first hand how Palestinians build their propaganda, and I strongly believe that no peace will be possible as long as international media believe their narrative instead of seeing the facts.”

 

“Hamas knows that it can count on the international community when it launches initiatives such as those ‘peaceful protests’ which have claimed too many lives already, while Israel has no choice but to defend its borders,” Rehov said.

 

The new video demonstrates the chief Hamas objective of eliminating the Jewish state, showing, among other things, Palestinian protesters holding a map of “Palestine,” with no Israel.

 

Hamas Chief Ismail Haniyeh is seen proclaiming “Khaybar, Khaybar oh Jews, the army of Muhammad has began to return” at a public rally, reminding Israel of the annihilation of Jewish tribes in the Arabian Peninsula by Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.

 

“Today our newest army, which is almighty, can do scary and terrible things to our enemies […] and this is thanks to our people,” Haniyeh then tells the crowd.

 

The crowd responds with chants of “death to Israel!”

 

Rehov told the Jerusalem Post his intent with the short documentaries is to present only facts, adding, “One image is worth 1,000 words.”

 

His previous documentaries include “The Road to Jenin,” debunking the claim that the Israelis massacred refugees at the Jenin camp, and “War Crimes in Gaza,” demonstrating Hamas’s use of civilians as human shields.

 

Pierre Rehov’s award-winning, feature-length films are available at the WND Superstore.

 

Another short film, “The Truth About Gaza,” by Richard Shaw, also contests the establishment media’s coverage of the violent incursion at the Gaza border May 14, which took place on the 70th anniversary of what the Palestinian’s call “Nakba Day,” or the “Day of Catastrophe,” in which an estimated 700,000 Arabs fled their homes as Arab nations attacked Israel upon its independence.

 

Rehov’s new documentary includes a video released by Israel Defense Forces May 16 of a Palestinian man, described as a Hamas terrorist, explaining how the terrorist organization that controls Gaza incites residents to engage in violent protest against Israel.

 

The video came as members of the United Nations accused Israel of not using restraint May 14 as Palestinians, armed with guns and knives, incendiary kites, burning tires and other weapons rioted at the border. Hamas appealed to the world, claiming Israeli forces killed 62 Palestinians. But a Hamas senior official confessed in a television interview that some 50 of the 62 people who died Monday and Tuesday were Hamas members.

 

The captured Hamas member said: “Hamas is the one that sends us Facebook and text messages telling us to go and in the mosques they call and send fliers that tell us to go to the fence.

 

“They control the Gaza Strip, and everything that happens there goes through them.”

 

He said Hamas “organizes these riots so that the people won’t revolt.”

 

“Hamas tell themselves, instead of having people revolt and turn against us, we’ll send them to the fence and let them ‘revolt’ there freely,” he said.

 

The man explained that when electricity is functioning in the Gaza Strip, Hamas dispatches messages telling citizens to go to the fence and riot, organizing transportation.

 

He said Hamas instructs women and children to move close to the border fence, assuring them that the Israel Defense Forces soldiers do not shoot women and children.

 

Hamas, he continued, has “established a committee that is responsible for the march, and for telling people to go.”

 

However, he said, “people wear out and get fed up, and I am one of these people.”

 

Dozens of social media posts called for Palestinians to bring guns and knives to the protest, knock down the border fence, kidnap Israeli civilians and hand them over to Hamas.

 

Palestinian Gaza-Facebook

 

A spokesman for Israel Defense Forces, the IDF, said Hamas deployed 12 separate terrorist cells to try to breach the border at different locations.

Paul Sutliff sent an email to me on May 12 urging support about Youtube placing restrictions of a video post featuring Sutliff interviewing Dick Manasseri of Sharia Crime Stoppers.

 

Sutliff’s email said in part:

 

You Tube claimed yesterday morning that my video of an interview with Dick Manasseri was offensive. Funny thing is they also state I have not violated community standards! Dick Manasseri and I am doing what I can to fight this. Maybe this video out of all of themascares [Blog Editor: I am unsure of the intent of “themascares] the Muslim Brotherhood silly. Feel free to check it out for your self.

 

 

The restrictions did not remove the video, but placed a warning that included the prevention of sharing and embedding:

 

Youtube calls Sutliff/Manasseri Interview Offensive

 

Certain features have been disabled for this video

 

In response to user reports, we have disabled some features, such as comments, sharing, and suggested videos, because this video contains content that may be inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.

Here is Paul Sutliff graph that shows censorship and NOT offensive content:

TODAY- 5/14/18, as I was about to work on a post showing my disgruntlement with Youtube censorship, I discovered the restrictions were removed. Apparently, Paul Sutliff’s appeal was answered favorably. Good for Sutliff and begrudgingly – good for Youtube:

Civilization Jihad is a very real Islamic concept that is thriving in western society. In Europe it is combined with the effects of mass migration. In America and Canada it is being pushed on 4 levels. They started in the colleges, and moved their agenda in the public schools. Today they have influenced and infiltrated aspects of our society and govenment [sic] in ways that can only be described as seditious.

 

Paul will share with you what is happening now. Now, not last year, but this week! Prepare to be shocked. This is the News! Its current events! But your major media outlets hide this all important information.

 

Tonight we have Dick Manasseri joining us. Dick Manasseri leads Sharia Crime Stoppers. Prepare to be amazed at what this man is doing for America!

In full disclosure I was in the process of getting Sutliff’s interview out for others to share, thus I posted it to my Facebook page (who knows? Facebook may censor the video cross post). Here is Facebook embed to show I was making a rebellious effort to counteract censorship:

 

Paul Sutliff interviews Dick Manasseri of Sharia Crime Stoppers. The original video on Youtube is about 47-minutes. However, old Youtube censorship prevents sharing and embedding. So, I’m attempting a Facebook upload. Otherwise, to view the entire interview go to http://bit.ly/2IhqQP1. Censorship is evil.

 

Below is the interview as heard on Blog Talk Radio which may have a lengthy intro vintage Beatles song with reworked lyrics to fit the format of Paul Sutliff’s radio program: Civilization Jihad Awareness with Paul Sutliff.
