An Important Message About YouTube Censorship
Back in the 1960s the left was in favor of free speech and the right resorted to censorship. Now it's the other way around.

Conservative Twitter users raise questions over bias
A possible game-changer we have here! Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube all have an undeniable political bias. Alternative platforms could level the playing field and potentially put the big three out of business.

The Online Hate Index
The term "hate speech" is just a tool used to silence the opposition. It's an excuse to censor and nothing more.

Classified ad website backpage.com seized
First of all, prostitution should be legal. Secondly, the phone company is not held responsible for people who plan criminal acts using their facilities and so a website should also not be held responsible for what users do. Thirdly, the evidence here is so subjective that it's obvious that law enforcement is merely harassing the owners of backpage.com. They are interpreting law erroneously in order to create a legal hassle in hopes of creating legal bills which will put the company out of business. The problem here is that law enforcement will not be held accountable for this willful act of harassment. The alleged illegal acts are insignificance compared to the arrogance and fascist tyranny of the legal authorities in a case such as this. BTW, this is not an isolated case by a long shot.

YouTube is a digital monopoly which has abused it's power to silence political speech which it disapproves of.

The Truth About Internet Censorship
Why does the ADL have so much control over what Americans are allowed to say on the Internet. I object!

They Did It Again
A little common sense would go a long ways in situations like this. People should be allowed to express themselves in ways which are not politically correct. Attacking someone for having said something that is politically incorrect is much more hateful than the politically incorrect statement itself. People should be allowed to have opinions which do not line up with the mainstream and we should all be tolerant enough to realize that words are just words and that people should not be punished for stating their honest opinions or for making silly statements that are meant to be funny even if they might happen to be offensive to some.

'Hate speech' manipulation? Breitbart claims Google targeted ad revenue to bring down site
Subtle manipulations of a complex algorithm can make a huge difference in the revenue of a company. Google has a lot of power and it takes very little effort for them to destroy a company if they so choose.
