Is Youtube Stifling Conservative Speech?
Sixteen-year-old Madeleine McAulay recently made a video wherein she politely discussed her thoughts on same sex marriage from the perspective of her Christian faith. The video received over 22,000 hits and landed her on Fox and Friends one morning last week due to the threats she received as a result of posting it. Progressives continued to attack her, called her video "hate speech," and Youtube finally pulled it.
Says Youtube, according to Ms. McAulay:
Thank you for submitting your video appeal to YouTube.
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.
— The YouTube Team
They hope McAulay understands that her respectful presentation of diverse opinion must be banned, but videos made in response to hers in which she's called a "whore" and a "pig" (among other gems) is allowed.
Youtube has a history of such decisions.
Unlike the left, conservatives fully support a private company's decision to operate how it sees fit. If Youtube wants to teach kids about free speech by banning the respectful videos of teenage girls while allowing men to savage them in misogynistic attacks in still-standing videos, that's their choice.
