    YouTube Hires 10,000 Staff To Weed Out 'Extremist' Content

    Google has announced the latest escalation in its battle to censor “extremist” content on its platforms, a covert campaign to censor conservative voices.
    The company plans to hire 10,000 staffers whose sole jobs will be tracking down extremist content that might violate Youtube’s terms of service, according to YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki.
    Wojcicki said that "bad actors" had used the video-sharing site to "mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm" others.
    Per the Hill, the announcement comes after British Prime Minister Theresa May pressured social media companies to remove radical content after a series of deadly terror-related attacks this year in the United Kingdom.

    "The tech companies have made significant progress on this issue, but we need to go further and faster to reduce the time it takes to reduce terrorist content online," May said in a speech to the United Nations in October, according to reports.
    But anybody hired to scour Google’s platforms for extremist content and posts planted by Russian bots shouldn’t count on being in the job for long. Google is presently developing an algorithm to automate most of the job.
    Wojcicki said they have developed a "computer-learning" technology that helps them to quickly identify and then remove radical content on a site that has hundreds of minutes of video uploaded each minute, according to the report.

    The technology can be used to weed out other inappropriate videos, including ones that contain inappropriate or exploitive content involving children, which YouTube has also been trying to weed out.

    YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have all faced calls to increase their oversight on possible extremist content.
    Back in August, YouTube announced it would be taking steps to censor content they found to be "controversial" even if it didn't break any laws or violate the site's user agreement. And while the message vowed to be part of an effort to "fight terror content online," the move was met wth widespread skepticism among YouTuber's as nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to censor conservative speech.

    YouTube’s “punishment” for users who express purportedly controversial conservative views is to economically punish the content creator by “demonetizing” their content by labeling it “not suitable for all advertisers.” The site even censored former Congressman Ron Paul when he spoke out about the Trump administration's plans to increase the troop levels in Afghanistan, a decision that had been celebrated as "presidential" by both the left and the right.

    Will you still think this is a great idea when someone with a huge paycheck decides TTOL is too extremist in their view, and tries to shut us down?

    Thanks for my daily "giggle"!

    Stalin....Hitler.....Mao.....Castro? Looks to me like Facebook, Google and most of the MSM are using their business model when it comes to free speech.

    Considering that Hoppy is a complete and utter fool as well as an unabashed supporter of Statism, I'd say he'd be all too happy to see TTOL shut down since we don't tow the party line like he does.

    Sheep never do like it when others think for themselves and then reject what they've been told. It makes them think about their own stance and thinking is painful for sheep.

    There is no "Both" sides. The left/right lie is a myth that to corral people into groups that are convenient for propaganda and subtle manipulation. Governments do it, politicians do it, lawyers do - heck you probably do the same thing in your everyday conversations to win a discussion. The thought that any idea in the universe of possibilities can be boiled down to either "left" or "right" with a sub label of "Acceptable" or "you are probably a complete nutjob" is to leave simple minded people no alternative than to agree with your agenda. It is an empty argument but one that works on most people.

    Really... 2 groups? That's all I get? We don't even get to discuss the two groups? We have to accept the top down definition? If my idea doesn't fit within the 2 groups then it can be labeled as extreme and is forever dismissed without even discussing the merits of the idea? What if it is actually a good idea? What if the idea is better than both the Left and Right's values?

    For example, If your name is Bob and you are a democrat and don't agree with the gay marriage agenda because it is sin according to the God of the Bible you are an extremist? Hey everyone, Bob is not a good democrat! He is probably an evil Republican or even worse - an extremist because he does not fit within our well defined group of helping Gay people feel good about their sin. Bob should know that either you are a part of our group or you are a bad misguided person that is probably bad for society. Please conform Bob, and refrain from ideas that do not fit! When we decide to change the definition of the group we will let you know and then, Bob, you will need to conform to the new definition. Nevermind that your view was in the mainstream just 10 years ago.

    Sorry for the rant - seemed like a shorter response in my mind...

    i've just about given up hope,there are so few who see how far we've fallen,
    reading some of Achilles' titles this morning got me a little depressed,this change is happening right before our eyes and it is being embraced by an overwhelming majority.

    No, don't give up hope, jimmy, I haven't. It's just a matter of where your hope lies, in man or in God. The globalist crowd lead by Satan will win for a season, but in the end, God sets things right. We should never put our hope, faith and trust in men. They will disappoint every time.

    Still, like you, I'm amazed at how many people are still blind to what's happening.
