YouTube Is Terrified of Tulsi Gabbard

It’s so cliche now for me to rail against “big tech”. Aside from the government itself, it’s the biggest boogeyman in modern times. Therefore, I’m just going to cut straight to the chase: YouTube is terrified of Tulsi Gabbard. They don’t want you to hear her words. They don’t want you to read her name. They want to engineer the way you think in a way that Russian trolls only dream of doing.

YouTube’s Censorship

Popular conservative commentator and comedian Steven Crowder informed us on his show that YouTube is throttling Tulsi Gabbard search results. YouTube is trying to hide the content coming from Representative Gabbard’s channel. This is not new for YouTube; they have a long track record of silencing those they disagree with. However, it’s still a blatant attempt to meddle in the election process.

In addition, YouTube is only throttling her content in the United States. Outside of the US, search results come up in the natural way that the algorithm dictates. In the United States, they come up in a way that dictates the special interests of whatever political cartel YouTube is bowing to.

A couple of months ago, Gabbard sued YouTube for alleged mistreatment. In light of the recent development, Crowder and his lawyers made clear that they are willing to bring up evidence in the investigations and assist in the fight for free speech.

Why Fear Tulsi Gabbard?

Why would YouTube have it out for a candidate like Tulsi Gabbard? It’s hard to say for certain. It’s not immediately apparent who Google and YouTube are serving. However, they clearly support the cathedral status quo. They want people to accept the mainstream narratives surrounding us and abide by the modern political process. Big, real, fundamental questions about our political world are not allowed.

Who is the Democratic party serving? Why are we engaged in these endless foreign conflicts? What are the consequences of political correctness? These are important questions that Tulsi Gabbard is asking. However, these questions come with another important question. Namely, what is the role of big tech?

These massive technology companies have come under fire many times in the last few years for censoring right-wing and conservative voices. Ironically, this occurs as the social media giants proudly proclaim that they are making elections fairer by eliminating Russian influence. They’re shutting down political speech to further their own agenda.

Tulsi Gabbard is not standing for this. She’s calling out the issues in the political status quo. That’s scary to YouTube. They’re reliant on the current social order. So they’re going after her.

Tulsi Gabbard is Now Dangerous

In the last week, Tulsi transformed herself into by far the most dangerous Democratic candidate in the race. With a massive message across all her social media platforms, she called out Hillary Clinton. “You, the queen of warmongers,” she says, “have finally come out from behind the curtain”.

At first, I was surprised by this message. It’s bold and powerful. Then I was kind of amazed because Tulsi Gabbard is campaigning against someone who isn’t even running for president (at least not right now). She understands that the Clintons (much like the bushes) are an oligarchical family focused on furthering their own ends, even if it includes mass-murder in the Middle East. The message was fantastic for her publicity, and she continues to double down on her targeting of Hillary Clinton.

Gabbard is now the most dangerous candidate running for president. YouTube fears her. They’re terrified. They don’t want you to have a full picture of the race. They don’t want you to come to your own conclusions. They want to engineer what you see, and as a result, they want to engineer what you think. Welcome to the age of political thought control.
