Sometimes I post YouTube videos as evidence of what I’m attempting to convey. Some of you have commented on that. During the last couple of years, I’ve found I can listen to amateur journalists from around the world, commenting on current events happening in their area, while I do my work in the morning at the same time. I can’t do that if I am reading something.
Last year many of the social media platforms banned Alex Jones, the controversial journalist from InfoWars. His remarks regarding the Sandy Hook shooting were beyond inflammatory so that not too much was said. Now YouTube has instituted a war that started with a Canadian named Steven Crowder but has engulfed many, many of the internet authors posting conservative viewpoints regarding the current topics. They were voluntarily funded by many of the viewers through links associated with videos. What YouTube did was demonitize them so that they could no longer receive funds in the hopes they’ll then go away.
This all began when a Vox journalist named Carlos Maza complained about the offensive commentary about him from Steven Crowder. YouTube investigated the complaint and concluded that Crowder had not broken their terms of conduct. This began a firestorm of complaints from professional journalists to YouTube against these new competitors. Some of these people have millions of viewers. It has grown and become so popular, it has outright challenged traditional news outlets. They are losing both viewership and revenue as a direct result of these new journalists popping up on the internet. After this liberal firestorm, YouTube changed their mind and removed the links associated with these videos allowing them to be monetarily compensated.
The MSM leans left and promotes left leaning agendas. Except for Fox News, which they all despise and condemn the viewers, the entire journalistic world in the US leans left and promotes left leaning ideology. The New York Times is now attempting to spin these right leaning journalists applying the new term alt-right and associating the shadow of the KKK on them in a new article; The Making of a YouTube Radical. Often I use the term “sheople” to describe the type of news that’s being spun and reposted here in this forum. It has become obvious to me that these mediums have instigated a polarization of our country as they attempt to push their agenda. This is a very dangerous time in America when free speech is being attacked. We should all be united for free speech. It was so important to our Founding Fathers that it was the very first amendment to our Constitution. When you hear speech being labeled as hate speech, it should ignite a switch in your whole self that you’re now being manipulated as a sheople. A sheople can only be fed one side and their agenda is to control both your thoughts and speech.
The next danger is the upcoming election and social media now plays a major role in communication. The timing of all of this occurring just as the 2020 election is beginning to ramp up isn’t a coincidence IMO. This is a coordinated effort and the sole purpose is to manipulate the masses. I’ve posted here for over a decade, I love my country and I do not harbor hate for anyone. I am a Christian conservative and people with my mindset are now being spun using the negative term…“alt-right” and portraying this mindset as baaaaaaa, baaaaaa, baaaaaaaad to their sheople. I’ve left enough evidence in this forum over the years to leave no doubt to anyone…how I think. Am I “alt-right” and a “radical” as the New York Times is portraying? Never forget that if you remain quiet, this same process will one day turn against you. Let us all unite against this effort to stifle speech and stand up for free speech. What say you?
