YouTube Conservative Commentator Calls Out Censorship
He referred me to a YouTube video, viewed more than 100 million times, that portrays rapper Lil Nas X "being sodomized by Satan, and not only is that monetized, but it's deemed child-friendly!"
He's right when he says YouTube is biased.
The company, owned by Google, restricted my video in which Black people express skepticism about "systemic" American racism (YouTube labeled it "hateful... content likely to offend marginalized individuals"), one that criticized anti-school-choice politicians who send their kids to private school, one that says, "socialism leads to violence," and others.
"There's an ideological motivation beyond the profit motivation," Crowder complains.
Now, he's suing big tech companies, arguing that they break their terms of service by treating people like him differently.
"I am unapologetic," Crowder concludes. "You don't have to like what I say. But I think at the end of the day, you'll be glad that there's someone there doing it."
I am glad.
YouTube should let people say what they want.
