Youtube has fully restored the accounts of The Iconoclast and Way Of The World following their sudden purge earlier this week. In what is being seen as a major victory for free speech and dissident thought both the channels have been restored but missing some subscribers and channel views. V-dare has also had their channel restored after they were also caught in the recent purge, but James Allsup, Martin Sellner and TRS radio remain banned.
Neither the Iconoclast or Way Of The World had any strikes or infractions on their accounts at all but was told their channels were banned because of repeated violations of their terms of service regarding hate speech. A few months ago Black Pigeon Speaks had the same experience of having his account suddenly banned with no strikes or infractions, only to be restored just days later. It makes you wonder what is going on behind the scenes at Silicon Valley, did an SJW employee get a bit overzealous, or is there some kind of power struggle going on involving the ADL?
The ADL, who has been working in partnership with Youtube and other Silicon Valley platforms, compiled a list of Youtube channels that they want to be shut down.
It must be very frustrating for the ADL when so many popular right-wing and dissident Youtubers are able to stay within the terms of service but still get their message out with excellent presentation. The ADL has been working furiously to shut down all right-wing or anti-progressive dissident thought on social media since the election of Donald Trump in 2016.
The purge of right-wing channels on Youtube earlier this week was the largest so far on the social media platform and many creators are urging their followers to follow them on Bitchute as it is likely only a matter of time until Youtube completely caves in, to the demands of the ADL and bans everyone that is in opposition to their rampant progressive agenda.
Susan Wojcicki of Youtube put out an open letter after the purge seemingly to justify the censorship and crackdown on free expression by claiming a need to balance openness with a responsibility to protect the Youtube community. But considering none of the banned channels had any strikes or infractions to their name, they can only mean "protection" from well-presented opposition to the progressive agenda of the ADL and Silicon Valley.
