It's not about who's right or wrong, it's about who makes the most noise. I don't agree with Steven's comments about it, but it's so bizarre to me how it's not about what policies it is. - Pewds
So frequently these channels get unjustly demonetized. When it's someone's livelihood, someone who's worked on something for 15 years [referring to history channel who was banned for Nazi content], YouTube has human people initiating the final strike. Do a better job. - Pewds
YouTube has always had rules of the road, including a longstanding policy against hate speech. In 2017, we introduced a tougher stance towards videos with supremacist content, including limiting recommendations and features like comments and the ability to share the video. This step dramatically reduced views to these videos (on average 80%)Today, we're taking another step in our hate speech policy by specifically prohibiting videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status. This would include, for example, videos that promote or glorify Nazi ideology, which is inherently discriminatory. Finally, we will remove content denying that well-documented violent events, like the Holocaust or the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, took place. -YouTube Blog Update
