In Alternative Media Crackdown, YouTube Censors Aceloewgold

YouTube users who click links Aceloewgold.com content are now, in some cases, met with a message discouraging them from visiting the site on the basis of it being “unsafe.” The message, seen below, implies that attempting to read an article on Aceloewgold could result in “malware, phishing attempts, or disturbing content” being delivered to your computer. The message appears to have started appearing after multiple YouTube accounts linked to our coverage of the “Elsagate” phenomenon plaguing the platform.

While we have certainly covered topics that are, indeed, potentially disturbing, it’s clear that the message is meant to scare users into believing their computers will be compromised by malicious software if they follow links to pages on Aceloewgold. The warning is absurd and ironic — after all, YouTube itself is home to troves of potentially disturbing videos. YouTube is also home to millions of hyperlinks, with plenty of them linking to content far more disturbing than anything ever published here.

While there’s certainly no way to prove it, my inkling is that we have been identified as a “fake news” media outlet by Google’s algorithms (spoiler alert: we’re an opinion outfit, not a newspaper, and no one here claims to be a journalist). Rather than identifying fake news, Google looks for content that offers perspectives not approved by the self-appointed information gatekeepers of the neoliberal tech-media-journalism complex. Time will tell if YouTube begins censoring or modifying our video uploads as well.

By discouraging users from visiting our site via hyperlinks in video descriptions and comments sections, YouTube actively misrepresents our site’s content and how safe it is to visit. By painting sites that publish alternative ideas and opinions as dangerous to the security of your computer, Google has the power to substantially reduce the reach of ideas that run contrary to the established orthodoxy.

Tricking users into believing their computer will be infected with malware is one of the more basic and innocuous tools they have at their disposal.The fact is, Silicon Valley mega-corporatoins have become adjuncts of the neoliberal Deep State in their role to wrestle total control over the global flow of information. It’s a level of power that is unprecedented in many ways, and has deep implications for the ability of centralized, politicized, self-interested groups to manipulate humanity.

  1. I recently received an email from Google informing me that one of my YouTube playlists of bookmarked videos had been deleted after being flagged by the “YouTube community” for ostensibly containing content that violates YT terms and conditions. Very odd indeed considering the playlist was private and not publicly accessible. It contained footage from the wars in Syria and Libya and documentaries and clips pertaining to these conflicts from various, mostly non-mainstream sources. None of the videos contained gore or “bad” language, they simply provided perspectives on these wars that challenged the dominant Western narrative.

    1. That seems to be the goal of Google, et. al these days…not surprising given their shady history and defense/intelligence contracts. Very insidious indeed. Thanks for your comment!

  2. You may want to upload on gab.

    1. Gab is definitely a great resource…Thanks for your comment!

  3. YouTube is owned by Google, and Google is the biggest political money contributor to the Clintons and provide elfs for their agenda Then they go snooping on everybody and cooking up all sorts of schemes in the world. It is not hard to put two and two together. China is smart to kick Google out. The EU and others are learning fast.

    I think it is just a matter of time these elements in our society reap their own wraths. What you call the “Deep State” no longer has the Force with them. So I really would not make it my business to go after them. There are better things and more important things to do. In the meantime, the Reaper is catching up on those with sleaze and blood on their hands, and Nature will take its course on them far more vengefully. Light is always Satan’s nemesis. Light is now everywhere. We have entered a new era.

    Do tread carefully. They are desperate and known to murder people.
