Youtube begins removing content as Safe Harbor deadline passes

The video-sharing website, Youtube, has announced that they will begin removing any content uploaded onto their platform that alleges fraud in relation to the 2020 US presidential election. This move comes as the safe harbor deadline of 8 December passes. Safe Harbor requires Congress to accept results of any state locked in electoral votes.

So Trump wins in 2016, no one's conspiracy theory about Russia is deleted. But people bring up legitimate concern over Biden's win in 2020 due to potential voter fraud, and they must be deleted. Yeah, that's not biased at all!

"It banned over 8,000 channels and “thousands” of videos for “harmful and misleading” claims since September, with more than 77 percent of videos pulled before they had 100 views." Seems like they were curtailing freedom and information for quite a while regarding the election, yet now they feel no need to hide their totalitarian objectives.

The fact that they never did this with the Russian interference of 2016 implies that either YT knew there was collusion or they wanted to drag Trump through the mud. While YT is a private company that can dictate what's on its platform, it looks really bad on them to display such blatant bias from a business aspect.

Its pretty terrifying the amount of people who seem to be completely okay with the dismantling of freedom of speech and freedom in general just because they are afraid of a disagreement.

Until the electors officially vote for him, he hasn't actually won. YT is enforcing a lie, and they know it.

Good. So, the real question is thus: will American public react to this by way of 2024 elections having learned its lesson or will it slowly descend to live in USSR by everything except name of the country? "The masses never revolt of their own accord, and they never revolt merely because they are oppressed. Indeed, so long as they are not permitted to have standards of comparison, they never even become aware that they are oppressed." George Orwell, 1984

Youtube is actually helping Trump. Wheaten Trump wins or not Youtube needs to be held accountable for their Nazi like attitude towards free speech. Youtube, when you censor and / remove people from your publisher site. It's just the same as burning books and making people fear saying anything, just like the Nazis. Congratulations, you're now acting like the most hated group in history!

Ah! What good kommissars the minions are at You Tube. Yet, they still drone on about how they're for free speech. I can't say about other states but here in Georgia we have actual video footage of the fraud taking place. No one is supposed to talk about it?

This is not a good sign for the future of this country, big tech was instrumental in Bidens “victory” by suppressing news about him, now they’re purging any and all dissent...

Good job youtube. Now you're making a martyr out of them. Can't wait for the algorithm to start cracking down on videos that don't actually dispute the results...

If the claims of fraud are so baseless, then what is the fear of people pointing out problems. Seems more like hiding than transparency. If YouTube really cared about false information on their site, they would need to remove a major of all their videos!

I'm time travelling from 2021, Dictator Trump was confirmed and no one tried to steal the election, this was the most secure and transparent election ever. In fact, every articles mentioning fraud or discrepency were retracted and you are not allowed to talk about it. Votes and voting machines were destroyed and all investigations were canceled... Oh wait... That's "President Elect Biden". Sorry, my mistake...

As much as I disagree with all the people jumping on Trump's "fraudulent election" bandwagon, I can't help but feel that this is a bad move for free speech. Sure, YouTube and Google are private companies, so technically they can moderate their platforms how they like, but those same platforms are accessible and useable by any member of the public with an internet connection, people who have a right to share their opinions with anyone and everyone, and to take that away, even from people with whom we may disagree, is going down a dark path.

Conservatives: "we have to stop the fake news media train! It's threatening our democracy!" Also conseratives: "No wait, we didn't mean us, we just meant the libs" Rules for thee not for me.

You do realize the elector college doesnt even meet and declare a winner until december 14th right? This is literally stripping away our freedoms right under our noses and we the people are allowing it. This is exactly how communism starts. Regardless who is right and wrong both sides should be heard.

More CENSORSHIP from Google's YouTube. Even despite the FACT that most of the United States of America have witnessed hundreds of accounts of WIDESPREAD VOTER FRAUD, with DOZENS of Federal Lawsuits filed against CORRUPT government officials and now 17 States joining Texas in Federal Lawsuits against CORRUPT States that are trying to certify FRAUDULENT VOTES for QUID PRO JOE and HEEL'S-UP HARRIS. What are they trying to hide?!! 🤔
