The events surrounding Sandy Hook have made many question the official story. However, questioning the official story is part of free speech and there's nothing wrong with that. Yet, we are seeing more and more that social media giants are wanting to silence those who disagree them or the mainstream narrative not only with regards to Sandy Hook but just about anything. The latest evidence of this comes as YouTube pulled four new videos that looked at the events surrounding Sandy Hook, claiming they "violate harassment and cyberbullying guidelines."
One thing to keep in mind is YouTube's own guidelines.
Now, virtually every word of that policy is geared toward criminal activity, but not about free speech.
Kit Daniels of Infowars says that in addition to members of the mainstream media, like Megyn Kelly, misrepresenting their position on Sandy Hook, they are also censoring their videos, many of which are several years old.
This is the notice Infowars received. It reads in part, "“…There’s a fine line between passionate debate and personal attacks. As our Community Guidelines outline, YouTube is not a platform for things like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, bullying or intimidation.”
Daniels counters YouTube's claim stating, "None of the videos made any sort of threats whatsoever, nor did any of them encourage viewers to engage in intimidation or stalking."
"In fact, it can be easily argued that whoever flagged the video is engaged in harassment since the person is using fake 'bullying' claims to suppress free speech and freedom of the press," Daniels added.
Infowars goes on to add:
...this censorship campaign brings to mind the “Internet ID” model of mass censorship designed to curtail the flow of information and the free market of ideas on the Internet.
Designed by China but later refined by the Bilderberg Group, the proposed Internet ID passport system would destroy on-line anonymity and chill free speech by revoking the posting rights of users who violate the “terms of service” of major Internet sites which run contrary to the First Amendment.
Additionally, Twitter was under fire for allowing feminists, Islamists and other anti-free speech groups to spearhead a “trust & safety council” to influence and even control what is said on the social media platform.
And Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google’s holding company Alphabet, proposed algorithms designed to “super moderate” on-line comments under the guise of fighting “hate speech.”
We already caught Google censoring our news reports before, with one famous instance at the RNC in Cleveland, Ohio, where a video showing our confrontation with the Young Turk was removed.
A Google contractor was also caught reprogramming search results to bury independent media after internal documents were leaked to the public.
YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are comrades in Nazi-style censorship, caving to pressure from political correctness pressure that they should be shunning instead of going along with. However, they support the very people who want this kind of thing done.
Look, I think there are questionable things regarding Sandy Hook. I've written on some of those things. I've also put to bed certain questions, having obtained the answers and even challenging people who misrepresented the facts. Nevertheless, I believe people have a right to question government, and we should. They should not be chastised for it unless the evidence is abundantly clear. Even then, putting out a video that questions things should not face censorship and certainly should not be referred to as bullying or harassment.
I recommend that someone who is liberty minded set up social sites to compete that simply provide the platform and let individuals do the censoring themselves. If there is criminal activity, let individuals report it to local law enforcement for followup, but don't hold those accountable who simply make the platform available.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
