YouTube Bans The Daily Mail For ‘Violating Community Guidelines’


Quote:
YouTube has banned the official channel of The Daily Mail, one of the United Kingdom’s longest-running tabloid newspapers.

Users navigating to the newspaper’s official YouTube page as of Saturday evening (EST) are greeted by a page informing them that the account has been suspended for violating “community guidelines.”



The newspaper, founded in 1896, is a frequent target of the British left for its conservative positions. The paper backed the campaign for Brexit in 2016.


Continued at above link.

I wonder what exactly it was that violated YT's “community guidelines”?


Again, I realize that YT is a business and allowed to set their own guidelines (within the law) but their practices do not exactly seem even and consistent.

That looked chaotic.

Tommy desperately needs a bullhorn or he won't have a voice left after more of those.

maybe the "Speakers corner" rules don't allow it?
I don't know what the rules, if any, are.

'Day for Freedom' protest in London: Scuffles break out as thousands descend on capital for far-right rally

PATRICK GRAFTON-GREEN
9 hours ago

A number of scuffles broke out as thousands of people descended on London for a 'Day for Freedom' rally that saw appearances from high profile far-right speakers.

The rally, which organisers said was to "defend free speech", began at Whitehall in central London at 3pm, with members of the right-wing 'Democratic Football Lads Alliance' and the 'Veterans Against Terrorism' groups in attendance.

Video footage emerged on social media of a number of scuffles breaking out amid a counter-protest by anti-fascism activists.

Counter-activists were filmed chanting “Nazi scum” repeatedly at those attending the march as they walked by.

Despite some unrest, a number of people took on social media to state that the march remained “peaceful”.

Police said that one man was arrested in connection to a public order offence and possession of Class A drugs.

The Anti-Fascist Student Network (AFSN) had urged opponents to join the planned counter-demonstration, saying: “Tommy Robinson may be trying to reinvent himself as a journalist, but he's still pushing the same hatred.”

Mr Robinson, the former leader of the English Defence League, was one of many right-wing figures who made an appearance at the event.

Leading member of the ‘alt-right’ movement Milo Yiannopoulos and right wing Canadian activist Lauren Southern, via video link, also spoke.

Ms Southern was held by police in Calais and refused entry to the UK in March.

She claims she was detained under the Terrorism Act after previously giving out leaflets and posters “about Islam” in Luton and has been "permanently banned" from the UK.

Speeches were also made by YouTuber Mark Meechan – best known as Count Dankula – and UKIP leader Gerard Batten.

Mr Meecham became an outspoken free speech advocate after he was fined £800 for teaching his girlfriend's pet dog to perform a Nazi salute.

@GerardBattenMEP
Just given a speech at the Freedom of Speech event in Whitehall with Tommy Robinson & various speakers. I was honoured to lead the march of thousands from Hyde Park. Peaceful, well-ordered and good humoured. A real pleasure to talk to patriots about keeping our freedoms.

11:20 AM - May 6, 2018



In a statement, Mr Robinson said before the event: "This is bigger than me or any of us as individuals so we have to stand up together to defend our freedom of sp

"We decided to focus our efforts on making sure we pull off a large scale, credible event. So we won't be marching - instead we have an incredible line-up of speakers, performers, videos and content to offer on the day.

"We want to make May 6 the biggest Free Speech demonstration the UK has seen so please, help us make it happen."



The article characterize the marchers as "far right."
I'm not sure that a MEP would be speaking at a "far right" rally.

I did a search on the BBC News website for "Day of Freedom" and found nothing regarding yesterday's event.

There are multiple videos of the event on You Tube.

Here is one of them:



I haven't watched the video yet.

There are longer videos as well.

Sargon also covers the event in his This Week in Stupid video:



PS: Sargon's vid also contains information related to a man in Scotland that was arrested for carrying a potato peeler in public. :roll:

When the Neo-Marxists, and their fawning corporate media buddies, can't win an argument against the liberties and freedoms those people are pushing for, they resort to this usual tactic of name calling.

It's all they got because they have no sensible counter-argument; their points are predicated upon authoritarian idealism. Which is an ugly and unattractive proposition to most westerners who think for themselves.

They use the "alt-right", "far right", and other such monikers, because their ideals are oppressive shit and many of them even recognize how bad it sounds.
