After the Wall Street Journal began routing out Nazis on YouTube, in an effort to get ads scrubbed from their videos, a massive overhaul of YouTube’s advertising policies began, shortly thereafter. It was incredible, really, as if Google was simply waiting for an excuse.
I can tell you firsthand this is happening. It is happening to me on YouTube and Google Adsense and on Facebook. These left-wing behemoths mean to strangle and starve us out while left-wing smear machines (aka think tanks) are funded by Soros and in many cases, the US government.
Facebook, where I have over 800K followers, has made sharing my posts almost impossible.
This is why we are suing the AG. Our law firm, the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, challenging Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) under the First Amendment. “Section 230 provides immunity from lawsuits to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, thereby permitting these social media giants to engage in government-sanctioned censorship and discriminatory business practices free from legal challenge.” The lawsuit was brought on behalf of our organization the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and Jihad Watch.

And the look at the revenue dive from Google Adsense ads — mind you my circulation numbers are consistent and strong.
The Demonetization of YouTube is Fast Underway; Dissidents Will Be Silenced
Zero Hedge, April 5, 2017:
It’s pretty obvious what Google is trying to do here. After the Wall Street Journal began routing out Nazis on YouTube, in an effort to get ads scrubbed from their videos, a massive overhaul of YouTube’s advertising policies began, shortly thereafter. It was incredible, really, as if Google was simply waiting for an excuse.
A number of major advertisers suspended their ad campaigns on YouTube, waiting for Google to get rid of its Nazis. Unlike other social media venues, YouTube is largely dominated by right of center, logic based, thinkers.
Obviously, this was a problem. Ergo, an effort to demonetize free thinkers is underway.
A manager for YouTube posted this kind note last week, warning creators that ad revenues will be fucked until they find the Nazis.
“If you’re seeing fluctuations in your revenue over the next few weeks, it may be because we’re fine tuning our ads systems to address these concerns,”
Nomura believes $GOOGL could lose $750m in revenue this year due to the new witch hunt.
Famous conservative personality, Paul Joseph Watson, posted a picture of his YouTube revenues, after the crackdown, and they’re virtually zero.
On iBankCoin’s channel, which only has around 3,000 subs, our revenues have flatlined as well.
YouTube said they’ve begun to hire 3rd party ‘brand safety’ organizations, who will help eliminate ‘bad actors’ from the platform. How nice.
I expect similar efforts will be made on the web that will take aim at independent media, taking away their financing and the incentive to create content.
