This.

Doubling down on the ignorance backed with hyperbole again... I'll give you an A for consistency.

Yes. Because Every Christian denomination will fire up the crusades again and pull a tyrannical stunt of putting others in their place...

Psst. There's an amendment that addresses that concern...
But go on and join others to topple it and render yourself defenseless should such tyranny exist.

So if we are to not be hypocrites, we will encourage Jones to learn from this and bring forth a counter to youtube. Just like the gays could find a gay owned bakery for their wedding cake rather than suing the bakery for discrimination yes?

He got kicked out for youtube playing fast and loose and selectively applying their terms of services as they see fit.
Same way Facebook will remove photos of firearms if they are not captioned as Not For Sale.
3 local ranges and 2 local stores Facebook pages were deleted.

Why? Violates terms of services for advertising the sale and purchase of firearms.
Yet... the page is still up, "Assault rifle Buy Back" which advertises they will engage in the business of buying firearms. They're not banned. Their terms of services were revised twice now pertaining to firearms and firearm related content and the 2nd revision made directly applies to the "Assault Rifle Buy Back" for advertising being in the business of buying or selling firearms.

No matter how many people nor how many times that page has been reported for violating terms of services for advertising engaging in the purchase of firearms, that page still exists.
So yes, they will bend the rules as they see fit and there's nothing we can do about it except form our own social media platform to rival facebook.
Jones should get to it. Buy the servers. Hire the coders. Bring forth his own media hosting entity. Problem solved until Uncle Sam decides to intervene.

Libs do not get to claim especially those at youtube or Facebook that they're for free speech nor are tolerant and accepting to all. That's all.
Very respectfully, I tried to respond to this but sort of got lost as to what your position is. It's okay. You don't ave to fix it. It happens, and maybe its me. But in case why you were wondering why I didn't respond.

Not only that, but they act as new media and they’re the only platforms for this new media. If a baker refused to bake a cake for a gay wedding, well, there are literally thousands of other bakers to go to. But if they were the only baker in the entire world, it would be a completely different story, wouldn’t it?

Why do people on Facebook and Twitter, for example, take it? You guys are just like wives who are abused by their husbands. No matter how much they hit and/or kick you, you don't leave them. You're pitiful.

Hateful content, scams threats, ... nope.

Go nothing to do with government censorship. Why conservatives don't grasp this is anybody's guess.

However, I have a pretty good guess as to why Trump aficionados want to shut down the free press.
Absolutely NOT! Conservatives LOVE it when liberals open their pie holes with Their mind boggling stupidity and rank ignorance. I remember an old addage from WW2, that i updated

When they came for Milo Yianopolous-I said nothing
When they came for Michael Savage--I said nothing
When they came for Alex Jones--I said nothing

When they come for me-there will be no one to speak for me

Its not just conservatives either, Ive never heard any of my liberal friends complaining or being outraged at the FCC for censoring network TV, radio, etc.

Not to mention, the Govt is not a religious institution, so really they should not be using religious morality to factor into their determination on whether content is appropriate or not...Im surprised someone has not called the FCC out on this yet.

I also think that liberals are being a bit hypocritical here by not criticizing YouTube, etc. more for this decision. Yes, they are private businesses and can choose who they want to do business with. However, wasn't that baker in the recently decided SCOTUS case also a private business? Shouldn't he have had the right to decide that he didn't want to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding? Why can't liberals grasp that his business was a private business and that he had the right to refuse to do business with a homosexual individual who wanted him to bake a cake for his wedding? YouTube is in the business of allowing users to post content and selling ads. This baker was in the business of baking cakes. If YouTube can pick and choose which individuals it doesn't want as customers, why can't a baker do the same?

3 positions.

My position is Jones can be a martyr for now, but if he was to really one up youtube he would develop his own media hosting site to compete against youtube.

My other position is liberals no longer can claim they are for free speech nor tolerant and accepting to all.

My other position is the companies are selectively enforcing their terms of services when it doesn't tow their ideology.

Which is all fine by me. All it requires is the blow back of conservative ran social media sites that do the same as liberal social media sites. Broadcast conservative view points. And regulate and ban liberal content as they see fit.
