This is why political control of media is dangerous. It's the control of information. Welcome to 1984.

Is there an alternative to YouTube that is not under the control of traitors? If there isn't hopefully there soon will be. Somebody with knowhow stands to make a lot of money.

This is part of a bigger effort to marginalize gun owners. Patriots should fight back against it in any way we can.

Just discovered this one: full30.com

Well, back in the days before the internet was a big thing people set up bulletin boards from which you could download files. The same thing could be done nowadays too.

Why do. Librals always own the tech. Why arent there conservative sites like you tube, face book? And if there are. Why arent they promoting the hell out of them

Bad yes. But over, no.

The free market should handle the situation. Someone else can set up a YouTube like site that caters to gun enthusiasts (or at least doesn't discriminate against them).

This is, of course, unless the government steps in a passes a law banning these type of videos. But that's a whole other issue.

Vimeo will take over. Facebook is going away too.

The demonitizing content, and putting those ones out of the suggestion loop will push content creators to other hosts.

By taking videos that don't support their views out of the side bar suggestion list and demonitizing them, they are essentially banning them.

Content creators will find or create a new site.

I'm glad YouTube pushed too far.

Years ago, I was banned from a forum for posting non malicious, accurate, truthful and irrefutable information.

I DESPISE censorship with every fiber of my being. I'm never the type to attack others. However, I have formed a well-reasoned set of morals and beliefs that are worth repeating.

Leftists insist on reducing (or eliminating) the capability of the citizenry to oppose authoritarianism. That's diabolical, period, end of story. Many simply can't understand why their method moves all power from the people to the government.

Folks, we need ideas. The leftist is chock-a-block full of ideas, and these ideas attain a life all their own. Facts are dead, nobody cares about facts. We need ideas!

So there are alternative video sites going online. Good. YouTube has gotten way out of hand.

First, I'm very Pro-2A. But I'm also a libertarian and pro-freedom. I don't think a business should be forced to violate its own principles as long as it's not discriminatory.

If a private company wants to deny service or hosting certain beliefs, provided it's not infringing on your rights, I'm okay with that. I can see the argument both ways on gun videos, and this might be a "coloreds only drinking fountain" situation. Or forcing a bakery to bake a gay wedding cake. It's a tough call, really. It will probably be fought out in court.

It sucks because I like Youtube and rely on them heavily for information. But another cite will come along and replace them. I see YT as making a very big mistake here and a move toward being replaced. Big companies and products DO fail.

There are other sites out there and gun vids are moving there.

As are conservative value sites. Those are being attacked and removed too.

What it DOES show is that YT and Google need to be smashed as being a monopoly in anti-trust suits by the DOJ. There are a few companies now that provide us with all our information that are far larger and more invasive than the RRs of the past and those were busted up for being monopolies.

Maybe this will be YT downfall. Or the start toward it?

Not good at all, I do get a lot of info watching those how to videos on taking apart unfamiliar firearms, or fixing or upgrading firearms. Heck i watched a ton of videos on reloading before I even bought my first press.
New to firearms or reloading people will not get all that valuable info, could be dangerous.

Meanwhile, YouTube is full of copyrighted music and other material, and makes a profit from all those clicks.

Are you serious?? Wow. As was already said.. I've used it to learn about many unfamiliar firearms. Take down, build, modify. This is bad. I'm going to cancel my youtube red subscription immediately and let them know why I did once I figure out how. Very very disappointing.

So everybody on youtube with a "how to" gun video should put that info somewhere else. However, will google allow you to search for it?
I believe Google owns youtube...****!

I know there are other search engines out there but come on.!
