On 01/17/19 Youtuber Count Dankula published a video telling his subscribers that every single video he had on Youtube had been demonetized.
Count Dankula (real name Mark Meechan). Is the Scottish Comedian and Youtuber that literally got prosecuted by the Scottish government for teaching his pug to do the Nazi salute as a joke to piss off his girlfriend. Since that whole fiasco he has been virtually unemployable and absolutely demonized by the left as an alt-right crusader. Nothing could really be further from the truth.
You see the left demonizes people they don’t agree with by using dehumanizing buzzwords like fascist, nazi etc. If anything Count Dankula is a crusader for free speech in the UK. He makes well educated arguments as to why free speech should be defended and that he doesn’t care about people’s skin color but rather what they stand for and what kind of people they are. Basically the complete opposite of a “nazi.”
People on the left have gone so far as to get companies like Patreon to remove him from their platform, payment processors to cut him off and now what was his only income to provide for himself (Youtube) to completely demonetize him. What they have done is morally and ethically wrong. Especially to someone who really doesn’t deserve it.
The particular person who convinced Youtube to demonetize Count Dankula’s channel is Mark Di Stefano from the notorious fake news site Buzzfeed. In his video Count Dankula said he got up to go fix his broken down car when he received a direct message from Mark asking him about the monetization of his Youtube channel. After then checking his channel he discovered that his only source of income was now gone.
Buzzfeed prior to the direct message had written an article that compared Count Dankula to the likes of Tommy Robinson who he had done an interview with previously. Count Dankula had even stated multiple times prior that he didn’t agree with Robinson’s views but was open to talk with anyone regardless of if he agreed with their views or not. Of course Buzzfeed used this as cannon fodder to make Count Dankula out to be a representative of the alt-right. Which is complete nonsense.
After convincing someone at Youtube to demonetize Dankula’s channel. Buzzfeed then went on to spread more fake news that made national headlines. They said that President Trump had ordered Michael Cohen to lie about his ties to Russia. The fake news major media outlets then spread it like wild fire without any evidence what so ever.
Not only did the Mueller team make a statement that this in fact wasn’t true. The Trump administration made an official statement that it was untrue. But the author of the article, Buzzfeed’s Jason Leopold made a statement to CNN literally admitting that he had zero evidence, “i received this information from an anonymous source.” Sounds like fake news to me. Buzzfeed then took it a step further. Their “head of journalism” Ben Smith had this to say.
It also appears that Ben also runs the Buzzfeed PR twitter account where he also said this.
It’s time Buzzfeed be held responsible for the fake news they spread and all of the character defamation they have committed. Fake news is a serious problem. But what is also a serious problem is the censorship by big tech companies like Google, Youtube, Apple, Spotify, Twitter and Facebook to name a few.
These massive companies are stifling free speech on a regular basis. As a matter of fact our page got automatically temp. banned on 01/16/18 for no apparent reason on Facebook. We had posted about how NYC mayor Bill De Blasio promised to literally redistribute wealth. We said exactly this:
“Mayor De Blasio.. more like comrade De Blasio. This guy is an idiot.”
We were then automatically temp. banned from posting anywhere (groups etc.) as well as our own page. It seems like Facebook’s algorithm is now scanning for words and names like comrade and de blasio and handing out bans as hate speech. Of course when appealed we received zero response from Facebook’s “support team.”
These examples just represent the ever growing problem that these massive companies (virtual monopolies) because they have no alternatives. Are bending the knee to the SJW / Leftist culture within our society. What they fail to realize is that these people cannot be pleased no matter what you do for them. It’s time we the people get a digital bill of rights that protects us from companies removing and stifling us with impunity.
We also cannot let these literal crazy people on the left to misconstrue what “hate speech” actually is. Which is calling for violence against a certain group based on religion, sex, gender, race etc. Otherwise you may not agree with what someone says but at least in America they are protected by their first amendment rights. Which are seemingly under fire and being violated on a daily basis now. Which should be the real news story that goes viral.
