YouTube Bullying Gun Channels
The decision-makers at YouTube are at it again. Popular gun channels are having the noose tightened around their necks. The only thing left to do is for YouTube to throw the lever.
It is no secret that Google, who owns YouTube, is biased against certain types of content. For years, YouTube turned a blind eye to gun videos (which certainly made a lot of money for them). Some gun channels collected several hundred thousand subscribers. For example, the Military Arms Channel has 619k subscribers, Sootch00 has 563k subscribers, and The Firearm Blog has 362k subscribers.
Nor is it a secret various groups use YouTube to promote their agenda. A member of the group will find a video, report it to the group, and then the group will make a coordinated attack using the report video feature. They will keep reporting the video until it is taken down.
How do I know about the coordinated attacks? Back around 2008 I posted a video showing how to skin a squirrel. The video was flagged as animal cruelty and my account received a warning. After doing some google searches for the url of the video, I found it had been posted on a forum that targeted hunting videos on YouTube. A member of the forum posted a link to my video, and numerous other members replied they had reported the video as…. you guessed it, animal cruelty.
The squirrel had been taken during hunting season, and been harvested in a humane manner. The shooting of the squirrel was not shown. All that mattered was someone hunted and killed a wild animal.
In an era of Facebook is it is difficult to find who is reporting videos, as the Facebook group can be set to private. This makes finding a link to the video almost impossible.
Military Arms Channel
On October 30, 2017 the Military Arms Channel posted the following on their Facebook page.
Also on October 30, SensiblePrepper posted a video saying his Sootch00 channel had received a warning.
SensiblePrepper went on to say he is launching a new gear review channel. So let’s keep an eye out for it.
The people flagging gun videos will not stop until every single gun video is removed from YouTube. It is just a matter of time before liberal leaning organizations, such as Google, purge their sites of anything having to do with firearms, knives and hunting.
What happens after firearms?
Conservative news channels will be purged. Mark Dice posted a video about this very topic – YouTube Admits Censoring Independent News Channels.
