YouTube's D-Day "Adpocalypse"

Last week, on the eve of celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Invasion, an "Adpocalypse" was triggered by Carlos Maza of Vox against Steven Crowder

Or as MidWestly calls this virtual Celebrity Death Match:  Maza's hurt feelings vs. everyone.

Basically, "Milkshake Maza" didn't like Louder Crowder saying mean things about him, so he demanded YouTube to shut down Crowder's channel.

Initially, YouTube resisted, but when Milkshake Maza along his legion of snowflakes threw a bigger tantrum, YouTube caved and a massive wave of censorship swept through the channel.

Young Rippa 59 ripped into Maza and YouTube pointing out that they've created more enemies for themselves.  He also had issued a personal message to Maza.  YouTuber 1791 called Milkshake Maza a coward.

Michael Knowles found the timing of Maza's attack to be odd--a political stunt in the wake of "Pride Month" and the prelude of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Ben Shapiro pointed out why Crowder got demonetized--that one doesn't have to violate YouTube's terms of service to get penalized if some leftist whines loud enough.

News of this blindsided YouTubers, like Liberty Doll, who was at her day job at the time., spurring many YouTubers to produce additional videos.

Liz Wheeler's brings up what you need to know about demonetizing Steve Crowder--and called-out all the vile things leftists say about conservatives.  But as Sargon of Akkad pointed out this only goes one way--against conservatives.

Conservative commentators, both on TV and YouTube, who don't like Louder Crowder's style of humor defended his freedom of speech like:  Blaire WhiteDaisy CousensGlenn Greenwald (appearing on Tucker Carlson).

However, none of the surge of support for Steve Crowder helped as YouTube went full-scorched earth, by demonetizing everybody, which includes non-political and even gaming channels for "appearing angry."

Speaking of angry, Jeremy at Geeks & Gamers discussed how the outrage mob came for YouTube and the nonsensical new terms.

Vox didn't ignite the Adpocalypse firestorm alone, but has help from major media outlets.

Louder Crowder didn't take Milkshake Maza's attack laying down though.  He exposed Vox's bullying tactics and warned Vox Adpocalypse is coming for you.

Leftists have a long historical fetish over censorship which is now being weaponized by Big Tech companies and social medial.

The repercussions of this latest "Adpocalypse" are far-reaching.

For starters, leftists have now made YouTube a worse platform for content creators (and viewers I'd assume).

What's worse than worsening a single site infested by SJWs is that YouTube's tactics radicalizes leftists overall and even that the far left media is making liberals insane.

Now YouTube algorithmic commissars are scouring the site for "certain terms" that might trigger more snowflake fascists like Milkshake Maza.

Brittany Pettibone pointed out that you now cannot criticize illegal aliens, nor can history teachers use archival footage of Hitler.

Or as Ezra Levant cheekily titled his video:  YouTube Censorship Will Continue Until Your Politics Improve.

Welcome to today's Orwellian Brave New Clown World...
