‘I don’t understand what these fundamentally capitalist companies are doing climbing in bed with the radical left’
Google and YouTube’s screening process for offensive content appears contaminated by social justice theorists and political correctness, threatening the voice of half the population that disagrees with their point of view, University of Toronto Professor Jordan Peterson says.
The free speech advocate said it’s likely not a coincidence that his Gmail account was shut down on the same day that YouTube posted new “hate speech” and anti-terrorism guidelines online.
The action blocked the controversial academic’s access to his popular YouTube channels with videos such as the “unconscious mind of the SJW (social justice warrior)” and “how to stop procrastinating.”
“They made it arbitrarily, suddenly, with no warning, with no explanation and with no possibility of appeal — that’s the process,” he said. “I don’t understand what these fundamentally capitalist companies are doing climbing in bed with the radical left.”
Nicole Bell, a spokesman for Google, said YouTube posted an update Tuesday on their latest efforts to tackle terrorism and violent extremism online.
YouTube says it will not accept hate speech based on race or ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and possibly other categories.
