        The guy in red appears reasonable, but says a couple of ridiculous things like antifa having committed murders.

            I don't necessarily agree with YouTube demonetizing Steven Crowder, but I definitely disagree with Joe. YouTube is a private company and not a public square, they can ban anyone they want. The terms and services exist not to protect gay people, it's because companies will not want to run ads on videos if they think it might hurt their business.

            It is simple economics, not some sort of political bias.

              Yes, if you are not queer, and you call someone a queer, that is a slur

                TheSomniloquy It’s like Natives calling themselves “Indians.” It’s seen as taking back, but you know, white men love to appropriate.

              The thing is, YouTube is a company and they can do whatever they want with their platform. They can be as spineless, politically biased, etc as they want to be. 

              It has nothing to do with the 1st amendment, which protects you from your speech being censored by the STATE. 
              A company has every right to fire you for saying things they don't like. Saying Steven Crowder should not have been demonetized by YouTube is like saying that you want to have the right to say things that aren't in your employer's best interest AND demand to get paid for it by them. That doesn't make sense.

              It's true that YouTube, Facebook and co. have become platforms that we treat like they're a "town square". It kind of feels like they are. 
              But they're not. 
              In 2006 Google paid $1.65 billion in stock for YouTube. You'd have to be pretty naive to rationally expect that they're doing that just for the greater good. 
              Nationalization is what would have to happen if you'd want the state to take over.

              Joe's comparison (21:50) with somebody in a bar saying "you lispy little queer" is faulty. Getting paid on YouTube would be more analogous to a bar hiring you to represent one of their sponsors. 
              Let's say your job was to give out sample shots of Jack Daniels at the bar as part of a marketing campaign. Jack Daniels pays the bar, the bar keeps a bit of the money and gives you the rest. Then, while on the job, you start to call customers "lispy little queer". Clearly it's understandable if the bar won't let you keep working for them and for their sponsors. So they stop paying you, which would be analogous to demonetization. BUT they don't even kick you out, you can still stay at the bar, saying what you want to say. Like Steven Crowder can still be on YouTube, saying what he wants to say.

                Joe is so dense, Youtube is a private business, they can choose their rule and how they pay channels however they want.

                  @Ludu maybe if you understood that capitalist monopolies are immoral. Sorry its gonna happen anyway and they're gonna be forced to allow crowder and every other type of ideology because of the first amendment. That's just the way that the government works.

                  YouTube is the largest video sharing platform in the world by a longshot. It's high time the US seized it and made it a public utility. I dont mind paying taxes to subsidize it.

                Everything this guy's saying is wrong. YouTube is given broad protections from liability to assure everyone gets to have their say on this highly profitable platform. As I Google is getting even more stinking rich. I can not believe I'm saying it but I can't wait for Google to be broken up and treated like a monopoly. Which it is.

                  This trend of every segment of the population getting to carve out a word, a phrase, a "tone" even recently is getting to be a bit much. People need to get over themselves. And Wtf is a safe space anyway. Do they think anyone that reality has been in mind for a person is a group is going to respect a safe space boundary? I thought part of the reason to assure free speech is to know what these fringe hate groups are thinking?

                        Freedom of speech is SUPPOSED to protect offensive language. If it wasn't offensive it wouldn't need protection.

                                      utilities and open platforms are different things under different rules. Utilities are more heavily regulated. Social media needs to be defined whether it is a platform or publisher. We are in a grey area because they are currently acting as both.

Followers of Gandhi kill people… People do what they want to do.” While Arbuthnot acknowledges that harmful people exist on both the extreme left and the extreme right, he suggests that “the more extreme those opposites get, the more moderate this society becomes, because when you average out all those extremes, you come out with a society that’s pretty well anchored in the middle. And that’s what we all want, isn’t it? A society where all of us can live? All races, all religions, all views living together. ”

It's all about context. Crowder is entertainment for children. They get a kick when he uses edgy words. Nobody cares if you call ppl queers, it just makes you look dumb and gullible.

He thinks everything he’s saying is a compelling argument for defunding crowder....and it falls flat, because the people he’s trying to convince don’t believe a code of hate speech should be entertained period. Also this dude would get beat the pussy juice beaten out of him in Argentina. Folks there have a certain sensitivity about large groups trying to control what they can say

It's obvious YouTube is SOCIALLY liberal, and that's where it effects content creaters. The fact that they are just like every other corporation that dodges taxes and wants to self regulate is irrelevant. Socially liberal fiscally concervative. Is an extremely common position I KNOW he knows that it's a thing and the case for YouTube.
