YouTube to ban Big Bear?

It will be interesting to see if YouTube follows through on what are rumored to be plans to ban everyone associated with Proud Boys and Infowars:
I have an insider at YouTube and he's telling me all the scoop on the imminent conservative purge. Stephen Crowder's on the list, Paul Joseph Watson's on the list, Owen Benjamin is on the list, anyone remotely associated with Proud Boys or Infowars is on the list.
Apparently this is supposed to happen on December 10th. We'll see. If it's true, then we can safely conclude that no one at YouTube has read Corporate Cancer yet. I'm skeptical myself, because that's the date the new terms of use come into effect and there is no particular reason YouTube needs them in order to deplatform anyone.

But regardless, this would be a good time to subscribe to Unauthorized.

The IG report comes out on the 9th. Not a coincidence.

I'd boycott YouTube but every time I watch a video they lose money.

Are we about to see another purge across multiple social media platforms?

For the most part people are too lazy to change their platform, but YouTube is trying its darnest to make it happen.

Blogger CCP November 30, 2019 6:05 PM  

I love it how their attempt to disrupt logistics will only have a limited affect and will ultimately make Unauthorized stronger. I don't think Big Bear is going to lose any sleep over this.

Do we have more to gain if Google goes ahead and does it or does not do it? Also, out of curiosity, which do you prefer, or is it better to keep that under your hat for now?

Mortem, that is interesting.

Youtube would never ban Owen. He's the one-man minstrel show that makes all right wingers look bad, at least when you take what he says at face value

Blogger swiftfoxmark2 November 30, 2019 6:24 PM  

It's all right. His other channel has a members subscription and if they shut that down, they're legal problems will compound.

Meanwhile, (alleged) YouTube child groomer Onision, Greg Jackson has still not worn out his welcome despite being the subject of Chris Hanson's latest efforts. Hanson has reported his findings to the FBI.

It depends upon the metric, really. As a longtime practitioner of the Xanatos theory, I really don't have a preference. Things are gamed out for all the anticipated avenues. On the philosophical level, I'd always prefer to be left alone, but that's just not a practical perspective in this environment.

Blogger Warunicorn November 30, 2019 6:39 PM  

Owen posted a new video on the situation.

It would not shock me in the least if YouTube did it. Can't have good content on your platform all thanks to SJW's who cry and ree every time they get offended.

Blogger cecilhenry November 30, 2019 6:42 PM  

Bitchute is improving and getting a lot more great content every day.

Its slowly becoming the default over YOutube.

Slowly...

I suspect YT will be 2nd tier in a year--although nobody will tell YT.

Blogger carnaby November 30, 2019 6:51 PM  

I'd never heard of Xanatos before, though I used to watch Gargoyles. Just learned explicitly about tropes, thanks for that! I'll assume in the future that as the Dark Lord of the Evil Legion of Evil that your real plan is the Evil Plan, and in particular to Unleash the Evil.

Exactly! The biggest hurdle to other platforms is laziness and convenience. If you are banned or you favorite content provider is banned, you're kinda forced to seek out new platforms.

Blogger lowercaseb November 30, 2019 7:11 PM  

@5 you got the point across first. I really need to start reading the comments from the top down.

Blogger Dave November 30, 2019 7:30 PM  

Alt superheroes? Rebel to receive the same fawning coverage, amirite? I mean, she says it there, "I'd love to read about them". Ah, perhaps Dynamique is more her style.

It did make me wonder about other “alternative” superheroes who might be out there. If you know of any, please drop me a line at rebecca.zamon@huffpost.com — I’d love to read about them.

@daniel Babylon

Is it your contention that the big Bear is just joking around about everything?

I don't know historical fact per se but the romantic notion of a jester is to tell the truth. Deflating a courtier through mockery to remove his influence, pointing out ridiculous lies and getting people to laugh at them. This romantic ideal is far and away from what I think you are describing, which is the troll who is only pretending to be retarded. That's not humour.

I believe Owen to be genuine. I can't know this because I don't know him personally. If he didn't firmly believe his core points that would be an outrageous betrayal. Your stating that he makes the right look bad is funny, because it's true, you are just coming from the wrong direction. An overly funny goat farmer is pointing out lies and hypocrisy that the right refuses to deal with. Meanwhile conservative heroes crow about Israel's gay pride parades.

Then you complain about it here because you are a divisive gamma, who probably got banned for saying something stupid on Owens channel.

Incorrect, and an comment section essayist should never accuse others of being a gamma. And although I admit my original comment is inciteful, I believe it is the most reasonable explanation for why Owen remains free while the more subtle are banned.

Blogger Out of Nod November 30, 2019 7:55 PM  

Yep, it's a Gargoyle referencs.

If your primary concern is optics, no one cares and you're on the wrong blog.

Blogger vmax71 November 30, 2019 8:42 PM  

If they are going to do it, I would prefer it to be early enough before the election to allow the sites to find another host and establish a large enough audience to have an impact.

I always felt the best tactic for youtube and twitter would have been closer to the election date. There would be no consequences to the companies to the claim that the purges are politically motivated no matter how close to the election they would be.

So imho, Let's GO....if you are going to do it, do it. Within 3-6 months, Paul watson, Crowder, etal. will be back....

Blogger HouellebecqGurl November 30, 2019 8:47 PM  

There will be MASS purges going into the 2020 cycle like you've never seen before.
Buckle up, Buckaroos. They ain't leaving nothing to chance this go around.

@SirHamster fair enough

Blogger Doktor Jeep November 30, 2019 9:26 PM  

What's really cool is that the money-losing model of YT is getting past expiration date. I think most of what they do is blow smoke to keep an appearance of viability. Every other attempt at being YouTube fails because they can't turn a profit.

Blogger Frank Lee November 30, 2019 9:52 PM  

They're kind of screwed either way. If they pull the plug on conservatives too early, many people will shift to alternative media sources in time for the election. And Trump can spend months attacking them for it. If they pull it at the last minute, they'll create massive publicity over their stunt and maybe tip the election at the last minute. Either way, Trump supporters have been getting ready anyway. No comparison to Vox's alternative empire, but most have email lists and other contact info people can go to.

I doubt they'll do anything dramatically overnight. I suspect they are hoping to warm the water slowly dropping more voices gradually as they have already been, maybe speeding up a little, hoping Pepe the Frog won't jump out before it is boiling. But it won't work.

The Tech God's are like the sci-fi trope where they require massives of people to believe in them in order to maintain their power. No one believes in them anymore but the most crazy leftists (and even they don't really believe). Their powers are fading. They can throw a thunderbolt here and there at individuals, but they no longer have any power to control the minds of the masses.

Blogger SJ November 30, 2019 9:52 PM  

Can anyone with an unauthorized subscription let me know if you can stream directly to a TV? Through a roku or app or some service? I usually watch big bears videos with my wife instead of watching any other garbage.

Blogger Krymneth November 30, 2019 10:38 PM  

@SJ: A Chromecast can take the stream out of your mobile browser. A cast icon will appear in the controls on the bottom.

For recorded steams, you can download them. There's a variety of ways to steam your video to a tv from there.

For these kinds of streams, if you have any way to stream your whole phone to a tv, it'll work too. Video can end up choppy passing through all the layers but the audio is usually fine.

Blogger Noah B. November 30, 2019 10:51 PM  

Having compared the new and old terms of service I don't see any dramatic differences. Youtube has supposedly had a long running problem with its customers being uncomfortable not knowing where their ads are going to show up, so I'm thinking that this very high profile announcement that the TOS are changing is simply intended to boost the customers' confidence in Youtube's viability as an advertising medium. Just a publicity stunt to try to bring in more ad revenue, in other words.

The new alpacas are going to steal Duran and Duran's bikes.

Blogger Noah B. November 30, 2019 10:55 PM  

Some deplatformings of well known right wingers would fit well into this strategy. So, whether it's true or not, the rumor makes sense.

Blogger jarheadljh November 30, 2019 11:15 PM  

Count me as one that doesn't think that there will be a giant purge on 10DEC2019. I am fairly certain that Google will be much more boiling frog about the whole thing and do it slowly over the the coming year. The first to go will be the gun channels and the nationalists because they are actually dangerous. Following that both the unapproved right and left will be jettisoned. At the same time Youtube will actually be extending monetization to cherry-picked political commentators and those pushing R-rated(or worse) content who are currently demonetized. Any channel that has been demonetized recently is probably on the chopping block. Any channel that is self-demonetized using InRangeTV's funding model is probably going to go, too.

However, Youtube will be setup to do a red-alert purge if one is required by The Storm. Google won't push the big red button unless it absolutely has to.

Blogger Unbiasedmike December 01, 2019 12:02 AM  

As someone once said "being banned is one of the most profitable things that can possibly happen to anyone with a loyal following".

Blogger MNW December 01, 2019 12:04 AM  

"If they are going to do it, I would prefer it to be early enough before the election to allow the sites to find another host and establish a large enough audience to have an impact"

That is the point. They are hoping they can make the major internet platforms as one-sided as the legacy media is.

Btw, relevant to this topic, Bitchute has a working beta of p2p livestreaming, and has opened a crowdfund to put the finalizing touches on it here: https://www.bitchute.com/funding/livestream/

Couldn't be more timely.

You never really see this kind of cuckposting from the left. Maybe that's why they've won so much over the years.

Right-wingers try to appease centrists. Centrists try to appease liberals. Liberals try to appease far-leftists.

The cuck hierarchy.

Blogger Mr.MantraMan December 01, 2019 7:39 AM  

#40 well thems the fruits of allowing the Left unchallenged domination of the Moral Level of conflict. Sure a conservative right winger whatever can whip up a 5000 word essay on whatever issue the Left brings up but pretty much it's a quibble on details or the usual line in the sand bluff, then they lose and scold the holdouts.

Its just a coincidence that the purge coincides with the release of the IG report which is the first of several big things to come. Nothing to see here.
