YouTube Continues Gun Channel Crackdown
Kevin Felts 12.08.17
YouTube continues its crackdown on pro-gun channels, as the account of James Yeager has been terminated.
Why should anyone care about James Yeager? The issue is not specifically about James, it is about the anti-gun stance of Google and YouTube. If YouTube were cracking down on liberal video bloggers, mainstream media would be outraged. Liberals sites would be saying, “How dare YouTube suppress freedom of speech!”
When to comes to firearms and gun rights, YouTube and mainstream media take a different approach. Firearm channels are being squeezed out, and mainstream media turns a blind eye.
Military Arms Channel had a strike against them.
Sootch00 had a couple of strikes.
Hickok45 got a strike against him. And what is more American than an old man shooting guns with his son? If I had to pick one video blogger that is sincere, it has to be Hickok45. Yet YouTube will not tolerate such wholesome family videos.
Sootch00 made an excellent video about the situation on YouTube.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
First YouTube came for the gun channels, and I did not speak.
Then they came for the alternative news channels, and I did not speak.
Then they came for the Christian channels, and I did not speak.
Then they came for my channel, and there was nobody left to speak.
