Round 2: PragerU Lawsuit Claims Google, YouTube Violated Calif. Law on Free Speech, Discrimination

On Tuesday, the conservative video nonprofit PragerU filed a new lawsuit against Google and YouTube in Santa Clara, Calif. superior court, to bring state charges against Google and YouTube in addition to the federal case currently before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Both PragerU and Google are based in California.

“YouTube was built on the backs of users like PragerU who were promised ‘give us your videos because we are a ‘public forum,’ a place where the public is invited to engage in ‘freedom of expression’ and where everyone is ‘treated equally,'” PragerU attorney Peter Obstler declared in a statement. “We expect that to be the truth.”

YouTube now warns that the German National Anthem is offensive ‘for some groups’

Some people wrongly believe it is the Nazi version, as Chris Fox a BBC reporter did. The anthem predates the Nazis and they only sang the first verse followed by the Horst-Wessel-Song. The melody was first written in 1796/97. The verses of the poem were written in 1841.

This Is What ‘Election Interference’ Actually Looks Like

The purge of the right on social media was once a slow trickle, with high-profile bans happening only occasionally, and then subsiding. With just three months until the midterm elections, the Masters of the Universe in Silicon Valley have turned online censorship into a cascade.

YouTube will now place Wikipedia entries about global warming below videos ‘refuting evidence of rising temperatures’

YouTube is fighting back against climate change deniers by implementing a fact-checking box below user-uploaded videos on the controversial topic.

The system will surface information from Wikipedia or Britannica Encyclopedia to display factual information in bitesize chunks below videos on climate change.

YouTube already implemented the feature for videos on a slew of other contentious topics, including the MMR vaccination, the moon landing and UFOs.

What is ‘reputable’ news? YouTube plans to decide for you

With the left-right divide in America widening, the challenge for YouTube is deciding what sources count as reputable. Among those vetted by YouTube are CNN and Fox News. CNN has been slated and derided as ‘fake news’ by President Trump and others on the right, while CNN President Jeff Zucker called Fox a “propaganda machine” earlier this year.

YouTube removes episode 23 of David Wood’s “Islamicize Me” as “hate speech”

Every day during this Ramadan, David Wood has been posting episodes of the video series he has produced in collaboration with Vocab Malone and Jon McCray, “Islamicize Me.” The idea is that three young men decide to live exactly as Muhammad directed for a month. It’s a biting satire based on the genuinely strange, dangerous, inexplicable, and violent things Muhammad is depicted as saying and doing in Hadith collections that Muslims accept as reliable.

FUREY: YouTube suspends Canadian anti-terror expert Tom Quiggin

Canadian intelligence expert Tom Quiggin has quite the resume. He’s worked with the RCMP, Canadian Armed Forces, the UN Protection Force in Yugoslavia, to name but a few. He’s testified before the Senate and at the Air India Inquiry. He was even an arms control inspector in Europe.

Yet, these extensive qualifications apparently aren’t enough for YouTube, which removed Quiggin’s new podcast from its platform before he even posted the first episode.


Check out the Quiggin Report.

Sadistic YouTube Deletes Channels, Demonetizes and Censors Content and Refuses to Respond to Press

The news that a content creator who was demonetized and censored by YouTube snapped and went homicidal at the company’s headquarters points to an ugly, systemic problem. YouTube creators have been asking for over a year for YouTube to communicate honestly and fairly with its creators, demanding an explanation for why some channels are demonetized and others with similar content aren’t.

Who is Nasim Aghdam? Everything we know about the YouTube HQ shooter

The woman who opened fire at YouTube’s offices in California on Tuesday raged against the video-sharing service for what she saw as censorship of her clips on her niche channel covering vegan issues, animal rights, Persian culture and fitness.

Nasim Aghdam, 39, of Southern California, was identified by police officials as the woman who approached the campus around lunchtime and began to fire before entering the building of the Google-owned video sharing service.

One man and two women were shot in the incident before the female shooter apparently committed suicide.

Ms Aghdam’s family say she was “angry” with the company and had complained about YouTube supposedly censoring her videos and cutting her ad revenue.


So, nothing to do with domestic violence, nor religion but a passionate hatred of YouTube’s arbitrary and discriminatory demonetization and censorship policies. This may result in Nasim being turned into a hero.

“Be aware! Dictatorship exists in all countries but with different tactics! They only care for personal and short-term profits and do anything to reach their goals even by fooling simple-minded people, hiding the truth, manipulating science and everything, putting public mental and physical health at risk, abusing non-human animals, polluting the environment, destroying family values, promoting materialism and sexual degeneration in the name of freedom and turning people into programmed robots!”

Shooter hated YouTube: Iranian animal rights protester, 39, who shot three staff at video giant’s HQ before killing herself, had a vendetta against ‘dictatorial’ site for censoring her videos and not paying her

Hard to argue this point… Aghdam compared her “workout video” to videos by “Nicki Minaj, Miley [Cyrus] and many others that have sexual things so inappropriate for children to watch,” but they “don’t get age-restricted.”

YouTube shooting suspect Nasim Aghdam ‘hated’ the company, her father claims

On Twitter many are revising their views of Nasim, they deplore her actions but understand her motivation. I can appreciate that perspective. YouTube is run by SJW’s of the Googly kind and they in turn will make themselves martyr’s, they shouldn’t.
