YouTube Restricts, then Unrestricts and Puts Warnings on, a Paul Joseph Watson Video on ‘This Is America’

YouTube Restricts, then Unrestricts and Puts Warnings on, a Paul Joseph Watson Video on ‘This Is America’. By Charlie Nash.

YouTube has issued a warning to users who attempt to watch Paul Joseph Watson’s latest video, in which he talks about the left-wing political undertones of Childish Gambino’s music video for “This Is America.” …

Though YouTube promoted Childish Gambino’s music video — which contains several scenes of violent imagery —Watson’s own video was sanctioned by the platform, despite the fact that he censored the violent scenes.

“So YouTube is allowing a video that depicts people being massacred and shot in the head to be seen by children (no age restriction), while censoring a video by me which contains nothing but political commentary,” declared Watson. “And to be clear, I don’t support censorship in either case, but the double standard here is stupid.”

“Also, I love how the original video (which literally shows people being gunned down in cold blood) is considered ‘advertiser friendly’ by Google, while me talking about gun crime statistics cannot even be allowed, never mind monetized,” he continued.

The partisan political nature of modern censorship is pretty naked.
