List of Censored Youtube Channels

The following 43 (and counting) Youtube channels were permanently taken down by Youtube on 15 Oct 2020. I am adding alternative or backup sites for each one, as I find them.

Apparently, Youtube didn’t like popular channels that supported Q or that would be expected to expose some of the corruption in the DC Swamp, such as the Hunter Biden scandals being exposed that day.

If you know of others, let me know at themooster@jackson.fastmail.fm, or you can create an account here on theMooster.net and post it in a Reply below. Thanks!

P.S. – This page on Bitchute has a more complete list of backup and alternative sites for most of the Youtube accounts shut down on 15 Oct. It also has way better graphics. Take a look: AdVerbum.

P.P.S. – This Youtube channel CancelProof has references to backup channels of many of these purged channels. CancelProof is also bringing up websites to continue to handle social media purges in the future, at https://cancelproof.club, https://cancelproof.me, and https://cancelproof.biz.

Also, please consider posting a link to this list on other sites. Thanks!

Special thanks to reclaimthenet.org for the Subscriber Counts (Sub Cnt) that these channels held on Youtube, before they were purged.

Here’s what Youtube had to say for itself, on their blog, two days ago, about this purge:

Today, we are taking another step in our efforts to curb hate and harassment by removing more conspiracy theory content used to justify real-world violence.

Managing misinformation and harmful conspiracy theories is challenging because the content is always shifting and evolving. To address this kind of content effectively, it’s critical that our teams continually review and update our policies and systems to reflect the frequent changes. Today, we are taking another step in our efforts to curb hate and harassment by removing more conspiracy theory content used to justify real-world violence. This builds on our work over the last several years to strengthen and evolve our policies and enforcement — work that has been organized around four pillars: removing violative content, reducing the spread of harmful misinformation, raising authoritative voices, and rewarding trusted creators.

The New York Times reported the above post on Youtube’s blog with this report:

YouTube Cracks Down on QAnon Conspiracy Theory, Citing Offline Violence

YouTube has played a bigger role in moving QAnon from the fringes to the mainstream than most platforms.

merlin_177206073_f729e74a-4b66-4a4f-894f-8723763857e9-jumbo

By Kevin Roose

Published Oct. 15, 2020 - Updated Oct. 17, 2020, 10:58 a.m. ET

YouTube on Thursday became the latest social media giant to take steps to stop QAnon, the sprawling pro-Trump conspiracy theory community whose online fantasies about a cabal of satanic pedophiles running the world have spilled over into offline violence.

The company announced in a blog post that it was updating its hate-speech and harassment policies to prohibit “content that targets an individual or group with conspiracy theories that have been used to justify real-world violence.” The new policy will prohibit content promoting QAnon, as well as related conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate, which falsely claims that top Democrats and Hollywood elites are running an underground sex-trafficking ring from the basement of a Washington pizza restaurant.

Other social networks have also taken steps to curb the spread of QAnon, which has been linked to violence and vandalism. Last week, Facebook hardened its rules related to QAnon content and compared it to a “militarized social movement” that was becoming increasingly violent. This week, several smaller platforms, including Pinterest, Etsy and Triller, also announced restrictions on QAnon content.

Under YouTube’s new policy, which went into effect Thursday, “content that threatens or harasses someone by suggesting they are complicit” in a harmful theory like QAnon or Pizzagate will be banned. News coverage of these theories and videos that discuss the theories without targeting individuals or groups may still be allowed.

The QAnon movement began in 2017 when an anonymous poster under the handle “Q Clearance Patriot,” or “Q,” began posting cryptic messages on 4chan, the notoriously toxic message board, claiming to possess classified information about a secret battle between President Trump and a global cabal of pedophiles. QAnon believers — known as “bakers” — began discussing and decoding them in real time on platforms including Reddit and Twitter, connecting the dots on a modern rebranding of centuries-old anti-Semitic tropes that falsely accused prominent Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and the liberal financier George Soros, of pulling the strings on a global sex-trafficking conspiracy.

Google and YouTube Sued for Censorship

October 26, 2020Ralph Fucetola

Spurred by Whistleblower Revelations

Big Tech Must Answer in Court
Pre-Election TRO Sought

On October 26, 2020, fifteen YouTube content creators, including the creators of YouTube channels, including: JustInformed Talk, SGT Report, X22 Report, SpaceShot 76, TruReporting, RedPill78, Edge of Wonder, Praying Medic, Amazing Polly, Woke Societies, Daniel Lee, Deception Byes, InTheMatrixxx, Destroying the Illusion and Sarah Westall, filed a federal lawsuit against Google and YouTube.

This lawsuit alleges that Google and YouTube breached the Terms of Service and violated their First Amendment rights, when they summarily de‐platformed the Plaintiffs’ channels and removed their content from YouTube without advance notice.

Together, their news and social commentary channels have reached more than 800 million views and together they had more YouTube subscribers than many legacy news channels, such as C‐SPAN, The New York Times, and NBC News.

YouTube and Google are expected to defend the case and claim that Section 230 of the
Communications Decency Act provides them immunity for these actions.

However, the Ninth Circuit has recently issued an opinion, retreating from the broad interpretation of the immunity that social media has used for years to defend lawsuits from its contract partners and users.

The Ninth Circuit favored the notion that Section 230 protection was more limited, applying to removal of “obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable" material, but not protecting a content provider who “blocked content for anticompetitive purposes or merely at its malicious whim.”

Read the full media release here: http://www.opensourcetruth.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/FNIAL-PRESS-RELEASE-10.26.2020.pdf

This reporter noted in a recent Open Source Truth article, http://www.opensourcetruth.com/lets-all-sue-big-tech/ that just days ago the US Supreme Court refused to reconsider the Ninth Circuit’s position that Section 230 must be read to protect Freed Speech interests.

Four days after Open Source Truth posted the above article, Google and YouTube Sued for Censorship, and two days ago now, Open Source Truth posted the following update to this case, Google Purge TRO to be Heard Monday.

I make this Mooster post on Sunday, November 1, 2020, two days after Open Source Truth posted the following update, and one day before this legal case is scheduled to be heard, Monday, November 2, 2020.

Google Purge TRO to be Heard Monday

October 30, 2020Ralph Fucetola

One Day Before the Election
Will Google / YouTube Restore the Purged?
Cris Armenta JD
Plaintiff’s Attorney

The United States District Court for the Northern District of California will hold an emergency hearing Monday to determine whether YouTube will have to restore dozens of banned channels (with a combined reach of over 800 million views) pending litigation.

You can listen to the hearing, live, here: https://www.cand.uscourts.gov/blf – 9 AM PT, Monday Nov. 2nd. Share this information widely. This case matters. Recent indications from the Supreme Court suggests that the Court is ready to take on the censorship by social media platforms. See Justice Thomas’ comments on the rejection of certification in the Enigma case: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/20pdf/19-1284_869d.pdf

Regarding the hearing Monday, please note, recordings and photos are not permitted.

This case arose from the actions of several major social media platforms, just days before the USA elections, banning conservative and libertarian voices. The suit alleges violations of contract terms and of fundamental rights.

The above linked BitChute video, Banned Content Creators Sue YouTube - Court Hearing Nov 2, 2020 (Alice Down the Rabbit Hole), also references and quotes from this article on The Verge: Banned conspiracy channels are suing YouTube over its anti-QAnon moderation push:

This Verge article contains the following paragraph directly pertinent to this current Mooster thread, regarding the October 15 Youtube purge:

On October 15th, 2020, YouTube took that campaign a step further, expanding its hate and harassment policies “to prohibit content that targets an individual or group with conspiracy theories that have been used to justify real-world violence.” The policies were particularly focused on the QAnon conspiracy theory, resulting in the immediate removal of tens of thousands of QAnon videos and hundreds of channels.

Notice Verge’s claim that this “resulted in the immediate removal of tens of thousands of QAnon videos and hundreds of channels”.

So far I’ve only identified 43 of these hundreds of channels, and I only had suspicions that this October 15 purge was related to QAnon. This Verge article presents evidence that Youtube’s purge was in part specifically QAnon related and that Youtube claims they have taken down hundreds of Youtube channels, “under their existing policies”. I find Youtube’s blog post of October 15, 2020, copied in the next Mooster post, below, to be ambiguous as to when these “hundreds” of channels were taken down, hence, so far as I know now, the 43 channels listed in the first post of this Mooster thread might well be all, or at least most, of the channels taken down specifically in the October 15, 2020 purge.

Managing harmful conspiracy theories on YouTube

By The YouTube Team
Oct.15.2020

Today, we are taking another step in our efforts to curb hate and harassment by removing more conspiracy theory content used to justify real-world violence.

Managing misinformation and harmful conspiracy theories is challenging because the content is always shifting and evolving. To address this kind of content effectively, it’s critical that our teams continually review and update our policies and systems to reflect the frequent changes. Today, we are taking another step in our efforts to curb hate and harassment by removing more conspiracy theory content used to justify real-world violence. This builds on our work over the last several years to strengthen and evolve our policies and enforcement — work that has been organized around four pillars: removing violative content, reducing the spread of harmful misinformation, raising authoritative voices, and rewarding trusted creators.

Nearly two years ago, we took a major step to limit the reach of harmful misinformation by updating our recommendations system. This resulted in a 70% drop in views coming from our search and discovery systems. In fact, when we looked at QAnon content, we saw the number of views that come from non-subscribed recommendations to prominent Q-related channels dropped by over 80% since January 2019.

Additionally, we’ve removed tens of thousands of QAnon-videos and terminated hundreds of channels under our existing policies, particularly those that explicitly threaten violence or deny the existence of major violent events. All of this work has been pivotal in curbing the reach of harmful conspiracies, but there’s even more we can do to address certain conspiracy theories that are used to justify real-world violence, like QAnon.

Today we’re further expanding both our hate and harassment policies to prohibit content that targets an individual or group with conspiracy theories that have been used to justify real-world violence. One example would be content that threatens or harasses someone by suggesting they are complicit in one of these harmful conspiracies, such as QAnon or Pizzagate. As always, context matters, so news coverage on these issues or content discussing them without targeting individuals or protected groups may stay up. We will begin enforcing this updated policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come.

Due to the evolving nature and shifting tactics of groups promoting these conspiracy theories, we’ll continue to adapt our policies to stay current and remain committed to taking the steps needed to live up to this responsibility.
