YouTube Uses an Anti-Conservative Hate Group SPLC to Police Content


The Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing group, is assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform, The Daily Caller has learned. Many say the SPLC is a hate group itself.

It has routinely labeled legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups”. It’s one of more than 100 groups flagging in the YouTube “Trusted Flaggers” program.

The SPLC and other program members help police YouTube for extremist content, ranging from so-called hate speech to terrorist recruiting videos.

The anti-Defamation League is another leftist group hunting down so-called hate speech.

The SPLC regularly labels pedestrian conservatives as “hate groups”. SPLC is directly tied to the events of 2012 at the Family Research Center when Floyd Lee Corkins opened fire on members because the SPLC targeted them as a hate group.

To take down groups, the flaggers use digital tools to mass flag content for review. Then the partners guide YouTube in designing algorithms policing the video platform.

The overwhelming majority of the content policing on Google and YouTube is carried out by algorithms. The algorithms make for an easy rebuttal against charges of political bias: it’s not us, it’s the algorithm. But actual people with actual biases write, test and monitor the algorithms.

The algorithms are anti-right-wing. There is little transparency and we don’t know what goes on in their bigoted little world of censorship.


  1. Speakin’ of which: Country Western video by Jason Aldean, “Dirt Road Anthem”. Click on the video, and up pops a warning that the content has been – “identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences”. You have the option to proceed or not. So of course I quit watching it. (haha)

    It’s a trip down memory lane. There’s nothing crude.The only thing I figure is that in parts of the song, Aldean breaks into a mild country boy rap, and in one verse of that, sings (raps) about bringing people “down to my hood.” Again, just guessing, but somebody doesn’t like a white country boy using “rap” and or using the word “hood”?

  2. The problem with that is you have to “sign-in” to see it. If a person doesn’t have a YouTube account you cannot see it. You used to be able to watch it with the VLC player but that has quit working. I wonder what they do with that information of WHO signs in to view it. They will now know WHO is viewing aside from the count. As I recall Twitter, for one, will look at your outside activities.

  3. YouTube will even give you a strike if you bully (criticize) CNN as happened to Berkeley student Ashton Whitty.

    The Tech companies are on the brink of Tortious interference laws.

  4. I’ve never had to sign in. Type a search, click on the video I want, and away it goes. That pop-up has not appeared in any other videos. When it does on that one, I click ‘proceed’ and it plays.
