(Dr. Michael Salla) YouTube has begun purging its popular video hosting platform of channels that challenge the narrative coming out of the mainstream news media across a wide spectrum of topics. This has led to outright terminations and strikes against some of the more popular channels, which have been exhorting viewers to question the conventional news narrative.
These channels have been accused to be participating in hate speech or bullying due to them vigorously addressing controversial topics, transgressing norms of political correctness, or exploring evidence that some national tragedies may have been false flag attacks. Among the topics that appear to have attracted the attention of YouTube censors are disclosures by QAnon, which allegedly involves information released by covert U.S. Army Intelligence operatives.
The YouTube video purge not only has grave implications for free speech, but can also seriously impact on the prospects for full disclosure of secret space programs, UFO’s, and the advanced technologies and hidden intelligence behind these.
These subjects have been successfully kept secret for decades due to mainstream media either ignoring or ridiculing their seriousness, or by removing journalists from their positions for covering them. I found this out first hand as a “citizen journalist” for the Examiner.com online newspaper where I had over 50 million pages views for over 300 articles written from 2009 to 2015.
All my content was summarily removed when a new editorial policy was adopted where “exopolitics” and many other alternative news topics were no longer considered legitimate news. Hundreds of citizen journalists writing highly popular blog articles were dismissed without any appeal process. All this badly backfired on the Examiner which by July 2016 was forced to shut down.
It’s no surprise then that the CIA has been found to have compromised media organizations in order to shape the mainstream media narrative. I would not be surprised that the Examiner had been similarly compromised. Therefore, any attempt to suppress alternative media sources that challenge mainstream news is a threat to full disclosure.
YouTube, owned by Google, has very recently begun using an army of 10,000 moderators to police the thousands of videos uploaded to its platform on a daily basis. In addition, progressive liberal organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center are being used as “Trusted Flaggers” which target YouTube users that vigorously challenge the mainstream news narrative.
Strikes are issued by the moderators and/or flaggers with only a very brief reference to the category of the YouTube community guidelines that has been allegedly transgressed. s No detailed explanation is given for the strike nor is the individual moderator(s) or organization behind the strike identified.
Among the first YouTube channels to be terminated under their three strikes policy was the Richie Allen Show on February 22, which had over 76,000 subscribers and 1,400 videos. Jordan Sather’s Destroying the Illusion channel was terminated on February 26 (120,000 subscribers), as was Jerome Corsi’s channel (34,000 subscribers) on March 1. Strikes were also given to Alex Jones/Infowars ( 2.3 million subscribers and 33,000 videos), Mark Dice (1.2 million subscribers) and a growing list of others.
