RESTRICTED: YouTube, Google Targets Louder with Crowder!
They've finally done it. As they've done with PragerU (read Fascism? YouTube Marks 21 PragerU Videos as 'Restricted'), YouTube has now set my youtube channel in "Restricted" mode. What does that mean? One, it's clear that our message and work is making an impact. But two, it means our impact will have a tougher time reaching a wider audience. Which is exactly the point.
"Restricted" mode means our videos cannot be played in most (nearly all) libraries, schools, often colleges and it includes accounts for people younger than 18. The leftist target demographic for mind-molding. But I'm sure that's just a coincidence.
I guess it would make sense if my channel were a strong "R". But since "Louder With Crowder" is syndicated, we even follow FCC guidelines. The content isn't even a PG-13! Guess what, though? The Young Turks Channel, which is filled with profanity and "hate"? They're not restricted.
Our channel also doesn't come up in a direct search for "Steven Crowder."
Yes that's right. A channel with nearly 100 MILLION VIEWS and HALF A MILLION SUBSCRIBERS doesn't even show up in the YouTube search. Annnnnd to make matters even worse, Google has recently suspended louderwithcrowder.com from being promoted through their native advertising service. Why? They claimed that our email sign-up pop-up (which is standard at nearly all news sites, also we don't use ANY pop-up advertisements) was problematic along with "Gun-related imagery".
Also guess what else comes up when one "Googles" a "gun-related" search:
Uh huh. But our videos and content are worthy of blockage. Okay. Our videos follow FCC guidelines. So if you think this is about anything other than being conservative and punished for it, think again.
Welcome to 2016, where opposing viewpoints which illustrate the hypocrisy, hatred, and damage caused by the left, are not argued, they're silenced.
Many of you have pleaded for me (and conservatives like me) to create another platform, where conservatives can create content, and you can be ensured a censorship-free experience. Well, I'd like you to bookmark LouderWithCrowder.com and stay tuned, because coming November 8th, I will be making a big announcement to just that effect.
But in the interim, what can you do? Stay in the know, sign up for our newsletter (if you haven't already). No, we're not going to spam you. I send one, maybe two emails a week.
Third, check this website for our weekly live stream, Thursdays 8pm Eastern. Add it to your calendar. Set a reminder. Do it, or Lena Dunham will personally come to your house and sit on your toilet. And do things. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Fourth, #NeverDaily is still never happening. Stop it. Let's also just say when we don't go daily, we also won't be beholden to the liberal twits at YouTube. Details (not) to come. Again, bookmark the site and stay tuned November 8th.
This isn't the first time our content has been blocked, and it won't be the last. Learn more about what Facebook has done against us, and watch this time-coded video for more information about YouTube:
