Youtube appears is using the radical Southern Poverty Law Center as one of their "fact checkers":

Google Uses SPLC To Police YouTube Videos | The Daily Caller


Also, it's not like Youtube has a bias against conservatives, right? Wait, what's that Mike Rowe....:

BTW, Leftists, you LOST the right to pull the "it's a private business" card when you threw the bakers, florists, photographers, bed and breakfasts, farmers, etc under the bus.


(As for me, I condemned the Georgia legislature's recent move against Delta, though I don't like Delta for attacking the Georgia religious freedom law in 2016 and I actually do support the NRA.)

We knew this was coming. The liberal tech companies are getting together with ultra liberal groups to shut down any opposition to left wing views.

Isn't it interesting that all the high tech companies lean liberal/progressive? The smartest people are progressives.

It's just so inconvenient for the conservatives that truth has a liberal bias.

Smart people don't favor censorship.

Heck, the right promotes Pure Capitalism...right? They like a system based around money and the rich people who control these corporations...to the extent that they cheer 1.5 Trillion in new debt to give them tax breaks.

Yet - all of a sudden - Righties think that private companies don't have the rights to decide who they want in their "rooms"?

Truly hypocritical. Why not start a conservative based video service - don't you have the intelligence or money on the right to do so? Sure you do - ask Thiel...he has billions.

As for the political noun, we know what liberals represent, and YouTube, Google, Facebook, and the SPLC fit the bill. Yup. They're liberals.

And liberals should be as ticked about censorship as conservatives.

But I won't hold my breath.

6% of Scientists identify as GOP.

That pretty much says it all. Sure, you can find moderates and even conservatives (generally not the same as your "crazy cons") in tech...but they are a small percentage.

Of course, there are vast numbers of Indians, Pakistanis and others in Silicon Valley and they are not just workers- maybe own and run companies. I would say Muslims and most all from India fall into a "conservative" type of a bent.

But the same people have something that 90% of the GOP and Right don't have - logic and reason and education and the ability to think and be flexible.
