YouTube Removes 17,000 Channels, 100,000 Videos, 500 Million Comments for “Hate Speech”

YouTube says it has removed more than 17,000 channels for “hate speech”, representing a spike in takedowns since its new “hate speech policy” went into effect in June.

THE GOOGLE-OWNED company calls the June update — in which YouTube said it would specifically prohibit videos that “glorify Nazi ideology” or deny “documented violent events” like the so-called Holocaust — a “fundamental shift in our policies” that resulted in the takedown of more than 100,000 individual videos during the second quarter of the year. The number of comments removed during the same period doubled to over 500 million, in part due to the new “hate speech policy”.

YouTube said that the 30,000 videos it had removed in the last month represented 3 percent of the views that knitting videos generated during the same period.

“We’ve been removing harmful content since YouTube started, but our investment in this work has accelerated in recent years,” the company wrote in a Sept. 3 blog post detailing its efforts to clean up its platform through the removal of videos that violate its standards.

YouTube, which has 2 billion monthly logged-in users, has come under fire in recent years for its struggle to keep up with the constant influx of new content that “promotes violence, hate speech or misinformation”. The company has taken steps to censor its platform and remove such content, relying on its machine learning technology to help detect videos that are in need of human review. In the blog post, YouTube said an update to its spam detection system during the second quarter led to a 50 percent increase in the number of channels that were terminated for violating its spam policies.

Together with Google, YouTube also has a team of over 10,000 people who focus on detecting, reviewing and removing videos that violate its policies.

YouTube says the videos removed represented a five-times increase compared with the previous three months. Still, in early August the ADL’s Center on “Extremism” reported finding “a significant number of channels that continue to spread anti-Semitic and white supremacist content”.

“YouTube Removes 17,000 Channels, 100,000 Videos, 500 Million Comments for “Hate Speech”” you mean JewTube Removes 17,000 Channels, 100,000 Videos, 500 Million Comments for “Hate Speech”… There has to be some kind of federal law that is passed that prevents this kind of perversion of free speech in this country; if we lose that we’re going to lose everything along with the laws that allow us to keep our weapons. There has to be people who believe as we do who are going to get into the political arena, the judiciary, colleges and primary schools who can counteract this brainwashing and law passing which is destroying the nations, both here and in Europe. This cannot go on much longer, or otherwise we will be a conquered people and we will… Read more »

Removing content is not going to make users less “anti-Semitic”, but more so.

#GoogleGestapo is, like Farcebook and Twatter, seriously infected by fascism transmitted by an infected vector known as CIA which is an unintelligence service known as Criminally Insane Assholes which many claim to be run solely by AI because those making this claim can’t believe even fascist criminals can be so dumb. You Boob, which has executives who worship Goebbels, deleted all of Mia Feroleto’s comments and #GoogleGestapo threatened to close her Gmail (Gestapo Mail) account. She has a small presence on Boob Tube with interviews where she discusses intelligent life not of earthly origin and this must somehow classify as hate speech in the fascist world if #GoogleGoebbelsGestapo. People with their work on Boob Tube and Twatter who don’t mirror it on Bitchute and GAB are fools who trust fascists.… Read more »

F**k Google. What they’re really after is what Antifa is after, which is to make it a “crime” to say “Caitlyn Jenner is not a real woman”.

Well, he’s not.
