I Would Honestly Love, A Legitimate “Wild West” YouTube…

01) Alex Jones BANNED from YouTube, Ana Responds


“Ana Kasparian explains why Alex Jones’ free speech defense is BS on #NoFilter.”

…And I have no problems, functioning in that kind of an environment…

It would be lovely, if we all had equal standing…and we all could equally speak our minds on YouTube, Facebook, etc…

I have no personal qualms, with InfoWars being on YouTube…

What I am getting a really sickly sensation out of…is this large parade of people living in denial…who seem to believe that “Saint Alex Jones”, is now a sacred cow…and he’s above community standards, above the terms of service…that there, seemingly, is nothing he can do, for which he can be penalized by YouTube, Facebook, or wherever…

…We even have Jimmy Dore soft peddling Alex, as though he were some kind of caricature which mocks right wingers…

Why are all of these apologists coming out of the woodwork…and acting like Alex cannot be penalized, for his behavior on internet platforms?…

…It’s as if they believe he embodies some sort of “god like” status, which makes him different from the rest of us…and hence, not having to behave like the rest of us do.

I don’t understand this…I don’t understand the reasoning behind it…

I’m not celebrating anything at all, in any of this…There’s no “dancing on the grave”, happening here…

…I just think it’s creepy as fuck…that so many people are acting like…”Nope!…No!…I don’t see any problems here!…anywhere!…ever!…Nothing Alex does, should be treated like it violates anything!…Alex is totally beyond the point, that any internet platform should be able to reign him in!…no matter what!”…

…I don’t agree with that philosophy…and not just because, the same level of privilege has not been afforded to me…I only pointed out this contrast earlier, to exhibit just how bad YouTube is, about equal opportunity in speech, and equality in terms of service enforcement…

I don’t agree…because, even though I would prefer to have a “wild west” YouTube…that is not the animal which YouTube has decided to be…and we’ve been given certain parameters in which to behave [granted…with a rather shitty degree of clarification].

If YouTube’s rules and terms mean anything at all…then they need to mean something, even when it’s a huge celebrity habitually violating them…I’d argue, especially when a huge celebrity habitually violates them…

There shouldn’t be all these people, acting as though they are oblivious, as to how Alex has a history of violating the terms and rules…and acting like this outcome, was not an obvious anticipation of his violations…

I don’t watch InfoWars…but I’ve seen tons of clips…and I know the show, from it’s past…when I did used to listen to it…

Can any one of his outraged supporters explain…how it is, that Alex magically does not have a long history, of violating the terms and rules of YouTube, etc.?…

…Because I’ve seen plenty of it…and I don’t understand, how you can arrive at an opposite conclusion from me.

Is it shitty, that YouTube, Facebook, etc., etc., has this much power on the internet?…

…Yes, it absolutely is!…And I agree with anyone, who believes that things need to change, in that regard…

…I agree…we need to have that discussion, about keeping an open place for the unpopular [and even a-hole] voices…

…I don’t know, that there is a “but”, which I even want to put here…

…It just sets so, so foul with me…that this is “the straw”, which everybody is losing it, over…

…It’s such a wrong “straw”, to push people past their limit…

Everybody knows, YouTube, Facebook, etc., is a bastard…

…If they were at all consistent in their enforcement policies…this likely would have happened, years ago…

…And I think everybody also knows, this is true.

Ugly truth…there are tons of people, who rightly deserve a total ban from social media networks…

…Why are any of them suddenly so critical and precious, when their number comes up?

My only shock in the past few days events…is that these companies actually mustered the integrity, to actually do it…

…I’ve been left perplexed for years…as to why they still had not done so.
