Only days after YouTube announced it was stepping up its censorship of online graphic content and would be using "algorithms" to filter out and suppress "extremist content" we have news that confirms the fears of the cynics amongst us. Despite denials from Google and high officials of NATO governments, we said the move was designed to suppress information and opinion that countered the pro - war narrative. Sure enough we hear YouTube are already deleting videos of the United States air-dropping weapons to ISIS, claiming that it contains “violent or graphic content.”

Despite denials from Google and high officials of NATO governments, we said the move was designed to suppress information and opinion that countered the pro - war narrative. Sure enough we hear YouTube are already deleting videos of the United States air-dropping weapons to ISIS, claiming that it contains “violent or graphic content.”

 

The video web site is now being widely criticized for implementing its new artificial intelligence program said to monitor “extremist” content, which critics can show is deleting videos that document war crimes committed by the U.S. and its allies.

 

The monitoring organization Airwars.org recently reported that its YouTube account had been targeted, just one week after YouTube published a new blog post announcing that it is "developing and implementing cutting-edge machine learning technology designed to help us identify and remove violent extremism and terrorism-related content in a scalable way."

 

Real computer pros (i.e. the diminishing number of baby boomers still compus mentis)have warned for years that one of the greatest dangers of what is called "Artificial Intelligence," i.e. using computers to make decisions that involve those unquantifiable human considerations like, "who defines hate?" and "what is unacceptably extremist to all web users?" could pave the way to the fascistic World Government the ruling elites have been working twards since the end of World War Two.

 

Airwars has raised the issue with YouTube, pointing out that after accepting hundreds of their videos documenting U.S. airstrikes, YouTube has suddenly blocked three videos which showed airstrikes by the U.S. led coalition in Syria that were reportedly targeting ISIS, dated from August 2015 to March 2016, which were actually dropping arms supplies to anti Assad fighters.

 

Chris Woods of Airwars told Middle East Eye he is still negotiating with YouTube over a number of videos, but he sees this trend as one that risks undermining the work done by anti - war activists and opponents of Barack Obama's beloved moderate rebels. "I think what’s so troubling about this if we look at the Syrian accounts, this is video chronicling a six or seven-year war, and some of the most important parts of that war from the perspective of Syrians," Woods said.

 

Middle East Eye also reported that it has experienced similar problems with YouTube after a number of videos, were removed, "some of which were later given age restrictions, some of which remain removed," the organisation claimed.

 

from Middle East Eye: YouTube told MEE in an email that the video ‘Drone footage by Islamic State shows suicide car attacks on Iraqi forces inside Mosul’ was removed and that YouTube had ‘assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty’ to MEE’s account. The same occurred in the case of ‘Video appears to show Egyptian soldiers carrying out extra-judicial killings.’ MEE lodged an appeal with YouTube and received this response:

‘After further review of the content, we’ve determined that your video does violate our Community Guidelines and have upheld our original decision. We appreciate your understanding.’

Another video, documenting the destruction of Nimrud by IS, which is widely available across the internet, was removed from an MEE staff account, and all appeals were rejected.

 

The report from Middle East Eye also claimed that Alexa O’Brien, an American journalist who covered the prosecution of whistleblower Chelsea Manning, reported on Twitter that videos released by Manning (see embedded video above) that showed the U.S. military blatantly committing war crimes were removed from YouTube.

 

As The Free Thought Project has reported, alternative geopolitical analyst "Partisan Girl" revealed that YouTube removed her video showing the U.S. airdropping weapons to ISIS in July, claiming it contained “violent of graphic content” that violated the platform’s community guidelines. “It documented US military airdrops falling into ISIS hands,” She wrote. "Truth is graphic content."

 

Strangely YouTube do not seem to have a problem with videos showing beheading or stoning of unfaithful wives in Saudi Arabia, ISIS fighters torturing captives or Muslim immigrants in Sweden gang raping women. Noce to know Google is steadfastly defending hypocrisy on the web.
