YouTube heavily restricts channel of UK right-wing activist - but no ban

They have removed many functions of Tommy Robinson’s (real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) user channel, such as being removed from site recommendations, stripped of live-streaming abilities, removed user comments on his videos, stopped his videos from appearing in suggested videos, and disabled ratings. This follows calls for his banning from the platform by Tom Watson, ex-deputy Labour leader.

So it's "far-right" to campaign against groups of Muslims going around raping and abusing young girls now is it Sky news? What a strange view of the world. I would have thought any decent person would oppose that!

This man IS NOT FAR RIGHT. At all. Not in the slightest. He does one thing and one thing only. He calls out Islam for what it truly is. He is a champion of the people and people are going to look back in 20 years and wish they'd listened to him.

And yet one can still find Islamic State recruitment videos and eco-terrorist manifestos on YouTube quite easily... Nope, no interference here.

He's far-right from the far-left. I'm a centrist and I'm also far-right from the far-left. A center-left person would also be far-right from far-left. That's how far-left most of the leftwingers are.

I don’t like the fact he founded the EDL but I agree with him on freedom of speech, he should not of been banned

He's not a far-right activist. Whomever thinks so is either braindead or a lefty. Or both, hell if I know.

What is 'far right', other than a label that carries its own kind of hate? It seems people are more concerned with shouting and finger pointing rather than keeping an open mind and actually listening. We truly have become a house divided against itself.

i think if they continue their attacks against tommy things will end badly. if they persecute him by imprisonment they'll likely have civil war

It's not far right to simply report on pedophile rapists just because they happen to be Muslim
