Oh, the irony
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com – NOVEMBER 27, 2017
Having ignored its own pedophile problem, where wannabe child molesters abused the platform to stalk children for months and potentially years, YouTube is now declaring links to Infowars.com “harmful” and “disturbing”.
Oh, the irony.
A user who attempted to link through to Infowars from a YouTube video on their phone sent us the following screenshot.
“Be careful! This site may be harmful,” states the warning.
“The site you are trying to visit (www.infowars.com) may include malware, phising attempts, or disturbing content.”
The website then offers a “back to safety” option to prevent the user from accessing Infowars.
It’s pretty rich for YouTube to be setting itself up as the moral authority on “harmful” and “disturbing” content given that actual pedophiles have been abusing the platform to fulfil their depraved fantasies for months or even years with YouTube only just announcing it would take action.
Indeed, while the Google-owned platform has been censoring and de-monetizing “offensive” political content for the last six months, pedophiles were completely left alone.
As the Daily Mail reports, “Searching for the phrase ‘how to have’ on YouTube brings up a list of disturbing auto-complete results,” including “how to have s*x with your kids” and “how to have s*x kids.”
Big companies are also pulling advertising from YouTube after it was revealed that up to 100,000 predatory accounts have been leaving indecent comments on videos showing children for at least a year.
Maybe YouTube should concentrate on cleaning its own house before declaring completely legitimate political content to be “harmful” or “disturbing”.
