YouTube is in crisis mode.
Don’t believe me? Simply log on to YouTube.com and enter the search term “YouTube crisis”.
Be prepared to cringe.
What’s at stake is free speech and, if for no other reason, YouTube’s woes should be of concern to every patriotic nationalist conservative on the planet.
So what’s up at YouTube?
Well, it seems as though virtually every major corporation on earth simultaneously and unanimously decided to boycott the video sharing web site. That’s a bit of an exaggeration; but not much.
What’s their beef?
YouTube and its parent company, Google, have given patriots a voice. That voice resonates throughout the Internet. It is so loud and so persistent that it effectively drowns out the once mighty mainstream media.
That, in turn, translates into a political paradigm shift that led to the success of Brexit in the United Kingdom, the failure of Hillary’s presidential campaign, and countless thousands of other victories that can be traced to the free-flow of information provided by Internet; compliments of Google and YouTube.
Is there a conspiracy theory afloat? You betcha.
When, perhaps, hundreds of major corporations simultaneously engage in an advertisement boycott, it smacks of a planned and concerted effort. That is, they conspired together. Some suggest the fingerprints of George Soros are all over it.
Ostensibly, corporate officials complained their advertisements were being shown on controversial videos and that, in turn, injured their brands. To force YouTube’s hand, the corporations are withholding their advertising dollars. Estimates suggest that this massive boycott will cost YouTube about $750 million this year alone.
Quite frankly, I question the excuse offered by the advertisers. Granted, advertisers would fret when their ads pop up on a video produced by ISIS or some neo-Nazi fringe group. But such videos comprise a minuscule percent of YouTube’s offerings.
Consider, instead, that the Internet’s free flow of information has washed over the mainstream media like a tsunami. Gone are the days when the media was dominated by three television networks and two wire services, all tacking hard to the left.
Truth is the antidote for the cultural Marxism virus that has infected the minds of billions. YouTube provides the syringe that injects truth into our minds.
In short, globalist Marxism is losing the information war. It’s blaming the Internet and is dropping an a-bomb (“a” for “advertising”) on the epicenter of truth: Google’s YouTube.
The strategy seems to be this simple: Force Google to shush videos that tell the truth and contradict cultural Marxist narratives. With the truth shushed, globalist Marxism can get on with crafting its make-believe fantasy world in which Western culture is the nefarious bad guy, Muslims are oppressed, poverty is caused by rich people (except Soros), climate change is caused by free-market enterprise, and Michael Brown raised his hands and said “don’t shoot.”
YouTube is left with two options: Ignore the advertisers and lose billions in revenue dollars or, two, squash true-news channels and appease the left.
Anyone care to guess which direction YouTube will go?
Keep in mind that cultural Marxism contends that relaying reality is wrong. Some have even associated reality with racism. Seriously.
Campusreform.org recently reported that three students from Claremont Colleges penned a letter in which they condemned free speech as “a tool appropriated by hegemonic institutions.”
The students also declared that truth is a “myth” and a white supremacist concept, according to the web site.
The students self-identified as black.
According to the students:
“Historically, white supremacy has venerated the idea of objectivity, and wielded a dichotomy of ‘subjectivity vs. objectivity’ as a means of silencing oppressed peoples,” they explain.
“The idea that there is a single truth–‘the Truth’–is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment, which was a movement that also described Black and Brown people as both subhuman and impervious to pain. This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples.”
The prevailing mindset among the far left is that truth is a racist myth and must be stamped out in the struggle to end the oppression of the proletariat (read “people of color”) by the bourgeoisie (read “white people”).
It’s no wonder, then, that the far left wants to shush honest YouTube videos that expose its lunacy.
Meanwhile, we ask this question: Is it true that truth is racist?
