Hey Nick – is this also not bias on the part of Google (who owns YouTube)??

OK, Nick Martin, another example; this one from RedState (again, and reformatted, emphasis mine):

Dave Rubin Conducts YouTube Experiment Proving Google’s Anti-Capitalism Bias

Google’s notoriety in the political bias department has been overtly undeniable as it continuously disadvantages right-learning or Christian thought. Thanks to one of YouTube’s most famous interview show host, Dave Rubin, we can now see that Google has an anti-Capitalist bent as well. On Wednesday, Rubin posted a video to YouTube titled “Socialism Isn’t Cool,” where he outlined exactly how socialism was the bane of society…Rubin went on to say that individualism, not collectivism, is the way to prosperity and that socialism conflicts directly with what it means to be human. It’s definitely worth a watch.

Go to the post to watch it.  What was unsurprising, at least to those of us on the Right, is what Google’s child, YouTube, did:

But to no one’s surprise, including Rubin’s, YouTube was quick to demonetize the anti-socialist video, and Rubin took to Twitter to voice his frustration. “Guaranteed a critique of capitalism would’ve been just fine,” he wrote.

And of course, @TeamYouTube has demonetized my video on socialism. Guaranteed a critique of capitalism would’ve been just fine. Join us via Patreon/PayPal/Bitcoin: https://t.co/gwBcGofxFZpic.twitter.com/UqDX3uBZV0

But Rubin then decided to put his theory to the test and created a video titled “Capitalism Isn’t Cool.” Within the video, Rubin assured his audience that capitalism was actually cool, and in fact, the coolest. At the end of the short video, he actually repeated himself from his previous video and reassured everyone that socialism was a horrible system.

And wouldn’t ya know it? YouTube had absolutely no problem with Rubin’s fake “anti-capitalism” video.

And we’re still monetized. Hmm! https://t.co/qc1cXZ5bDF

In fact, his anti-capitalism video was monetized while his anti-socialism video was still waiting for approval.

…It wasn’t until the following day that YouTube decided that Rubin’s anti-socialism video was appropriate for monetization. However, it should be understood that most of the money that is made on YouTube is made within the initial hours of its release. Essentially, YouTube had punished Rubin for his video despite decided it should be monetized.

And there are others on the Right of Center feeling the wrath of Google/YouTube:

YouTube and its overlord, Google, have been incredibly biased about their disdain for the right, and they do very little to hide it. In fact, Rubin ran afoul of Google’s monetization system before by simply having on Daily Wire editor in chief Ben Shapiro on as a guest.

And it’s not just Rubin. In December last year, the Daily Caller had to take Google to school in order to halt the censorship of one of its videos.

But no one has had more trouble with YouTube’s bias than the conservative educational channel, PragerU. Google and YouTube have done everything to them from demonetizing to putting their videos in the restricted section alongside the ultra-violence and porn.

While none of our over 2500 videos have been demonitized (that I know of) like the above, Twitter, another now unwrapped Lefty social media provider, has shadow banned us, especially during the Trump / Hillary debates; I sent tweets out and often never saw some of them route back  while using  the normal hashtags for the event.  I really don’t bother much with Facebook at all, but if I did, I bet I’d be sequestered there as well. That’s ok, I have GraniteGrok.

Now, I am wondering if Nick is starting to understand what is going on. Secondly, I’m waiting to see if Nick learns the lesson about “that buy ink by the barrel” and for someone that likes Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals (I’ll let him guess which ones).

  • Demonetized, for the key time, until “What difference, at this point, does it make”?
    Sounds like a pair of rogue IRS clerks at a remote office, or something.

    And Lois Learner STILL walks free among us.
