Silicon Valley thought police strike again

YouTube has censored a video critical of radical Islam in yet another example of how big websites are silencing more moderate voices and allowing extremists to fill the void.
The video, entitled The Truth About Trump & Britain First, had received over 150,000 views before it was hidden behind an interstitial that reads, “The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”
Users have to be signed in to watch the video, while comments, likes, and views have all been removed.
This is a form of “limited state” soft censorship that prevents a video from being shared or going viral.
The video contained no swearing, nudity or anything else “offensive” besides criticism of radical Islam and terrorism.
The argument made in the video, that more extremist voices like Britain First are gaining currency because the left is silencing more moderate critics of Islam, has been proven by the fact that within hours, my voice was silenced.
Watch the video below via Twitter.
CENSORED by YouTube.

The irony is that last time the left and YouTube pulled this stunt, temporarily censoring a video debunking the claim that the far-right is a bigger threat than Islamic terrorism, the video ended up gaining 300,000 extra views.
Apparently, the mass flaggers still don’t understand the Streisand effect. If anything, I should be thanking them.
In censoring criticism of radical Islam, YouTube is siding with the actual ISIS supporters who send me death threats on a weekly basis.
