When reviewing some of YouTube’s past decisions regarding singer R. Kelly and rapper Cardi B, it’s clear that YouTube’s life-altering authoritarian justice is, at the very least, unsettlingly inconsistent. YouTube demonetized Russell Brand’s channel on the basis that he was anonymously accused of rape. Despite the serious allegations, which accusers say took place over a decade ago, Brand has not been charged, much less convicted, of any crime.
#BelieveAllWomen except for Tara Reade or anyone else who accuses a powerful Democrat. We all know what this bullshit is really about.
Jimmy Dore show covered the story too and highlighted a letter the UK government sent to Rumble in an attempt to cancel his channel there. This attack on Brand is a government operation.
Thanks, Matt. Takes courage these days just to be a "good Samaritan." I appreciate your courage in these troubling times.
I signed up for the video mashups, but I will stay for the longer-form essays. Great work Matt. Wish I had budget to become paid right now, but appreciate you keep it open.
It’s a political hit job if I’ve ever seen one, regardless of the veracity of the allegations. The media ignores signs of deviant behavior all the time. They covered for Jimmy Savile for decades. His horrific crimes were an open secret among the media and power elite. These powerful people don’t care about women or children. They care about power.
This is quite obviously an excuse to censor anyone who questions the narrative, his actual guilt or innocence are beside the point as far as Google is concerned.
Believe grifters and abusers, silence anyone who speaks out against Fascism. Hi, welcome to the Future.
I’m really getting tired of these stories of blatant discrimination!
Despicable Double Standard 🤮
Has YouTube demonetized or deplatformed any of Joe Biden's accounts? He's been far more credibly accused of sexual assault and OTHER sexual improprieties, and it wasn't even done anonymously...just ask Tara Reade, or his own daughter.
And for some reason, I keep seeing ads for his campaign pop-up in my 'feed'. I NEVER bite - but I don't turn them off, either...I want him to pay full price to YouTube, for my inconvenience of sitting through them.
It feels like they have strange bedfellows in both business and politics...and situationally specific "ethics".
It’s not about the accusations. That makes no sense. He speaks truth and that’s not allowed. It’s called disinformation.
YouTube is cool with people pissing on kids.
It's what happens to you when you don't think right. Trump arrangement syndrome cult has spread pretty far I imagine the intelligence agencies that warped these people's heads must be laughing their asses off
