YouTube has ‘quarantined’ a hard-hitting video on Europe’s migrant crisis released by Poland’s conservative government, as part the platform’s crackdown on “hate speech and violent extremism”.
The Polish Ministry of Interior and Administration’s video has been placed in a controversial state designed by YouTube to limit access to videos it says contain “supremacist” or “extremist” content, but which don’t break any of the platform’s rules. …
YouTube has also shut down comments on videos which have been placed in this “limited state”, and removed view counts and up-votes and down-votes, making it impossible to see the reach of the video, or know how it has been received.
The offending video. In Polish, but with English subtitles:
Our new censors. Anything goes in the bedroom, but now they want to control what goes into our heads. Cannot even vote this lot out — although we can avoid using Google’s services where possible.
Christine Douglass-Williams at Jihad Watch sees the implications:
Truth is now being ubiquitously labelled as “hate speech” by fascists seeking to destroy our freedoms.
The censorship of truth serves to promote the hijrah and the Islamic supremacist/jihadist agenda throughout Europe, and, in fact, globally.
Poland (and the other members of the Visegrad group) have resisted the invasion of migrants, and thus avoided the crisis that has accompanied them. …
YouTube is stating that to defend one’s country against such abuses including jihad attacks, abuse of women, FGM, threats to infidels and apostates, forced marriage, intolerance, violence etc., is “targeting Muslims.” Such thinking not only puts Western populations in harm’s way, but represents the ultimate bigotry of low expectations against Muslims. More Muslims need to take a stand against the horrors that have come to Europe as a result of the heavy migrant influx of their coreligionists.
