BLACK PIGEON, DON’T SPEAK: YouTube CENSORS Popular Right-Wing Channel

by TR News

YOUTUBE was under-fire yesterday after censoring the popular channel of a right-wing commentator and video maker, Black Pigeon Speaks.

The popular channel that was launched in 2011 had over 56 million views and over 480,000 subscribers.

It was the latest in a long line of attempts to silence the right by deplatforming and defunding notable right-wing channels which receive huge audiences online.

The channel was notable for anti-Islam content and had many videos challenging the multi-cultural ‘takeover’ of Britain.

YouTube said: “This channel has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy prohibiting Hate Speech.”

The ban was met with immediate backlash on Twitter with notable Alt-Media figures backing BPS.

Brittany Pettibone wrote: “Black Pigeon Speaks, who had a YouTube channel with approximately half a million subscribers, has been permanently BANNED by YouTube. ” She urged users to follow him on Bichute.

Paul Joseph Watson said:

“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”

He also slammed YouTube for its clear censorship and ‘cyberbullying.

“The day after Black Pigeon Speaks made a video warning that independent voices were being “silenced – relentlessly, pathologically and ruthlessly” by Silicon Valley, he is banned by YouTube for no reason,” added Watson.

YouTube later restored the channel following the backlash, but it’s still a clear sign that YouTube is cracking down on anyone who doesn’t toe the leftist line.

Black Pigeon Speaks followed up with a thank you for everyone who supported the reinstatement of his channel. Perhaps you would care to re-tweet?
