I've been on YouTube as a YouTube Creator for almost 4 years, and now they're making my videos harder to find on their site. I've created a video explaining my frustrations with this, but I'm not the only creator complaining about this issue. I've enlisted 3 other channels on Youtube who've expressed this exact same frustration in that video:
As I've said in the video, if you're a content creator that's experiencing this exact same frustration, hit me up on either Facebook or Twitter. We need to make our voices heard by Youtube (and Google by extension) that their new policies are unrealistic.
There's been an untold amount of Neo-McCarthyism unfolding before our eyes as a nation, and it's building up to a dangerous level. The reason isn't from the level of Russophobia, even though it's a huge problem; it's from the ultimate conclusion that all dissent is illegitimate as it's all pro-Russian. That conflated conclusion is absolutely absurd beyond reason. I found this article written by Matt Taibbi Rolling Stone explaining how Russiagate exploded from Donald Trump's questionable business ties to numerous Russian oligarchs into a campaign to silence anyone who even bothers to make a minor criticism of how badly the establishment had blown the election in 2016.
Additionally, there's another article on Axios that explains how many of the headlines regarding Robert Mueller's investigation are completely useless and are just flat out wrong. This is another factor of the new wave of McCarthyism's unseemly rise, as it explains the Orwellian overtures through not always checking their facts. That's from the media's use of pseudo-research talking points from organizations like Securing Democracy's Hamilton 68 web page for tracking "Russian trolls/bots". This group has the smells of the same neo-conservatives that got us into Iraq.
By making any and all criticism of the political establishment a worthy charge of treason, it's having the effect of bullying an electorate into compliance. This needs to end before someone gives Donald Trump the bright idea of lobbing a nuke at the Kremlin.
The Trump Administration is showing classic overreach in its attempts to nullify California's status as a sanctuary state when it comes to immigration law. The lawsuit filed by the Justice Department only places law enforcement in the cross fire over a political question of how to deal with the immigration system that's been broken for years. At the same time, the Trump Administration has gone about solving the problem in the most inhumane way possible; and that is to enforce the law by unnecessarily breaking up families.
