This is the fourth video of that sweet, ‘Blonde-of-Youtube’ I have posted in the past week or so. Three of them deal with Islam and it’s effects on France and Europe. One of them discusses the fact that her videos have been deleted from Youtube, and, if I understand her correctly, she also had a Facebook page deleted because of the content of her videos.
What I find interesting is why. Her material is relatively innocuous. Compared to what imams say in a day about the rest of us on these same forums, the death threats she herself receives regularly and the attendant vulgarity, her videos are simple and obvious observations and analysis that is pretty much watertight.
So why the deletion? Why did her videos get yanked and my video of say, Anusup for mass relief not pulled?
Well I have a guess.
On her own channel, Blonde of Youtube (Great icon by the way) these videos enjoyed hundreds of thousands of views. Well the first two did, linked here and here. (My mirror of them.) The third one got pulled very shortly after it went up as I understand it and the one where she discusses the deletions has not been up long at all.
Below is the third video which was deleted very shortly after it went up, along with the first two on her own channels.
One of them is over 24,000 views on the Youtube channel it currently resides on. I would guess this means its not long to exist there if it continues to get views and if my theory is correct.
So what we have is indeed freedom of speech. But thanks to the technology that lets us know exactly how many and who are watching, what we do not have is freedom of listen.
