YouTube to remove videos denying Holocaust, glorifying Nazism

Times of Israel

YouTube announced on Wednesday that it is to remove material that denies the Holocaust or glorifies Nazism.

The move, announced on YouTube’s official blog, marks a new stage in the battle against hate speech, the company said. 

In 2017, Google’s video-sharing platform took a tougher stance against supremacist content, limiting actions such as sharing, recommending and commenting on clips. That policy, according to the company, reduced views of those videos by an average of 80 percent.

This latest stage aims at prohibiting videos that allege that a “particular group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.” The latter refers to the status of a person who has performed active duty in the military.

“This will include, for example, videos that promote or glorify Nazi ideology, which is inherently discriminatory,” the company said.

“Finally, we will remove content denying that well-documented violent attempts, like the Holocaust or the shooting at Sandy Hook elementary, took place.”

YouTube said it realized that content of this kind was valuable to researchers and NGOs trying to understand hate in order to combat it and that it was looking at ways to make it available to them in the future.

“And as always, context matters, so some videos could remain up because they discuss topics like pending legislation, aim to condemn or expose hate, or provide analysis of current events,” it said.

“We will begin enforcing this updated policy today; however, it will take time for our systems to fully ramp up and we’ll be gradually expanding coverage over the next several months.”

YouTube said that it piloted an update of its US systems in January to limit recommendations of “borderline content and harmful misinformation, such as videos promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, or claiming the earth is flat.”

It said it hoped to bring the updated system to more countries by the end of the year.

“Thanks to this change, the number of views this type of content gets from recommendations has dropped by over 50% in the US.”

    The purge, swiftly moving across the globe. A last-ditch effort to squash truth. Even flat-earthers are targeted. What’s next? Don’t you dare mention that raw garlic is a natural antibiotic and amazingly effective in treating the common cold.

      First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

      Because I was not a socialist.

      Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a trade unionist.

      Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Jew.

      Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

      Here is a though for talking and it comes via the end of a barrel either a rifle(preferred)a hand gun or a shotgun he he.
      Heck how about a serious show stopper like this?
      Brings an entirely new meaning to show stopper and intruder prevention.
      Get some HooYaa 😉

    You fags wouldn’t know ‘well-documented’ if it bit your miniscule nuts off.

    Both can positively, unequivocally be proven to be TOTALLY FAKE.
