In another example of YouTube protecting California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the video platform has notified The American Mirror that it has “restricted” a montage video exposing her long-time alliance with the anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan.
Because YouTube has disabled the Embed feature, you will have to WATCH IT HERE.
YouTube has hidden the video behind a large warning sign:
“The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences,” the warning reads, not indicating whether Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic statements, his hugs with Maxine Waters, or the inconvenience of it all was deemed “offensive.”
YouTube requires viewers to click a button reading “I understand and wish to proceed” in order to see the expose.
The video, which is intended to bring attention to the Democrat leader and his vile views, shows Waters and Farrakhan embracing, including an instance where she repeatedly pats him on the back.
During a Nation of Islam convention in Los Angeles, Farrakhan calls her “our great congresswoman from this area.”
YouTube sent us an email with its ruling.
“Your video Maxine’s ties to an anti semitic was flagged to us by the YouTube community. Upon review, we have placed restrictions on how the video will be shown,” the email reads.
“We believe in the principles of free speech, even when that speech is unpopular or potentially offensive to some viewers. However, YouTube doesn’t allow hate speech or content that promotes or incites violence. In some cases, flagged videos that do not clearly breach the Community Guidelines but whose content is potentially controversial or offensive may remain up, but with some features disabled,” YouTube says.
The Maxine Waters/Louis Farrakhan educational video apparently falls into that category.
Earlier this week, Breitbart reported that YouTube parent company, Google, manipulated search results, arguably to protect Waters.
In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”
The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg. …
One of the posts in the discussion also noted that the blacklist had previously been edited to include the search term “Maxine Waters” after a single Google employee complained the top YouTube search result for Maxine Waters was “very low quality.”
“Your video will be shown after a warning message,” YouTube declares to The American Mirror.
“In addition, certain features such as comments, sharing, thumbs up, and suggested videos have been disabled.”
Prior to restricting the video, it had received 6 “likes” and zero “dislikes.”
