You Tube & Google Refuse to Take Down ALL Islamist Terrorist Propaganda Videos … Free Speech?


As Memorial Day is upon us Senator Joe Lieberman takes on You Tube and their so-called free speech against American soldiers. Want to become outraged … see the videos for yourself that You Tube allows as free speech from the very people that would take away You Tube’s if they had the opportunity.


You Tube claims it is about free speech? Really, or only about a particular form of free speech? Is violent extremist Islamic material considered free speech? Is a propaganda video showing an American solder killed by sniper fire free speech? You Tube seems to think so. Why does You Tube ban certain videos that they deem offensive or against their political agenda, yet allow Islamofascist videos showing American soldiers targeted and killed as ok? Does that some how meet the You Tube guidelines against showing graphic and gratuitous violence. Are there guidelines, or do they just want to increase video views at all cost?

What is most pathetic regarding the You Tube response is that they feel that they are not responsible for the videos that are uploaded to You Tube. Instead they hide behind the guise for free speech and complain that they do not have the resources to pre-screen all videos uploaded on a daily basis. Well maybe they should get the resources from the revenue that they generate! They are making money off of video views. That is their business model. Free speech and stifle debate are the excuses? What a bunch of nonsense this is as You Tube has taken down bloggers videos because other people did not want a particular political or religious agenda shown. Instead of objectively taking down “hate videos”, You Tube creates an agenda driven “snitch and destroy” subjective means of censorship.

YouTube went on to say that it encourages free speech and defends the right of its users to express unpopular points of view.

“We believe that YouTube is a richer and more relevant platform for users precisely because it hosts a diverse range of views, and rather than stifle debate, we allow our users to view all acceptable content and make up their own minds,” the company said. “Of course, users are always free to express their disagreement with a particular video on the site, by leaving comments or their own response video. That debate is healthy.” (Computer World)

Check out My Pet Jawa and the numerous videos that You Tube thinks is ok and not Islamic propaganda. Yeah, these videos do not promote violence against American soldiers.

The videos on You Tube like this are in the 100’s and 1000’s. See for yourself and become outraged. FYI, here are just some of You Tube’s guidelines, think these videos did not violate them?

When a video gets flagged as inappropriate, we review the video to determine whether it violates our Terms of Use—flagged videos are not automatically taken down by the system.

  • Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your video shows someone getting hurt, attacked, or humiliated, don’t post it.
  • YouTube is not a shock site. Don’t post gross-out videos of accidents, dead bodies and similar things.


Sec. 2. Section 3 of Executive Order 12947 is hereby amended to read as follows.

Why does You Tube refuse to take down all of the off their video site that are produced by terrorist groups that depict hate speech and gratuitous violence against our United States Military? Google and You Tube have been asked by CT Senator Joseph Lieberman to do just that, take down the offensive, hate and propaganda videos that promote violence.

In a statement posted on the YouTube blog, the company said that it had taken down some of the videos identified by Lieberman’s staff because they contained hate speech, gratuitous violence or in other ways violated community standards.

“Senator Lieberman stated his belief, in a letter sent today, that all videos mentioning or featuring these groups should be removed from YouTube — even legal nonviolent or non-hate speech videos,” the statement said. “While we respect and understand his views, YouTube encourages free speech and defends everyone’s right to express unpopular points of view.”

In his letter, sent Monday, Lieberman said that radical Islamist groups use YouTube to share recruiting and training videos.

Lieberman to YouTube: Remove al Qaeda videos

You Tube has taken down some 80 or so videos; however, not all. You Tube cannot hide behind free speech as they have already taken down 80 videos that were beyond any ethical standard to show. The problem is that You Tube is not enforcing its own policies and acting in any responsible manner to hold them self accountable to ethical broadcasting standards.  Lieberman has requested that they all be taken down and that You Tube adhere to their own standards.

Lieberman, who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, wrote to Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt to complain that YouTube is not enforcing its own guidelines against showing graphic and gratuitous violence.

YouTube Videos produced by al-Qaida “show attacks on U.S. forces in which American soldiers are injured and, in some cases, killed,” Lieberman’s letter said.

A Google spokesman said the company has removed about 80 videos that violated YouTube’s restrictions on gratuitous violence and hate speech following discussions with the senator’s staff last week.

The spokesman said it’s difficult to prescreen the hundreds of thousands of videos uploaded to YouTube everyday. Instead, the site relies on users to police objectionable material — simply by pressing a “Flag” button located under a video — which is then reviewed by the company.

“There’s nothing in our guidelines that says something produced by a certain group gets censored,” the spokesman said.

YouTube declines Sen. Lieberman request to remove terrorist-produced videos; Google unit says most cited videos don’t violate its community guidelines

Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Monday called on the Google Inc. subsidiary to remove video content produced by terrorist organizations that showed assassinations, deaths of U.S. soldiers and civilians, weapons training, “incendiary” speeches and other material intended to “encourage violence against the West.”

“Islamist terrorist organizations use YouTube to disseminate their propaganda, enlist followers and provide weapons training,” Lieberman said in a letter to Google CEO Eric Schmidt. “YouTube also, unwittingly, permits Islamist terrorist groups to maintain an active, pervasive and amplified voice, despite military setbacks or successful operations by the law enforcement and intelligence communities.”

In the letter, Lieberman noted that although YouTube posts community guidelines for its users, it does not appear that the company follows the guidelines. For example, he noted that despite rules that prohibit gratuitous violence on the site, there are videos of al-Qaeda attacks on U.S. forces in which some soldiers are killed or injured.

      A double standard exists. In the democracies of the free world … Islam is allowed to use the right to free speech to undermine everything a democracy stands for but … the right to free speech is not afforded to others if it is Islam that is being undermined.

      Wake up America! Wake up Canada! Wake up Britian! Wake up Holland! Wake up France! Wake up …!

      Islam’s global agenda is being furthered through the polically correct appeasement policies of the democracies of the free world … appeasement policies that render the playing field uneven … appeasement policies that bow to Islam and … afford the followers of this ideology special rights that are denied other citizens.

      Red, You have not posted an Aruba article so your people are hungry to insult Aruba and the Sloots…….Regarding (edit) Liebermans letter—this guy needs to focus on governing and not waste his time trying to block free speech.
      SM: OK anti-Semitic type comments will not be tolerated … go find a hole to crawl into. What a sad pathetic soul you are.

      Consider yourself gone.

    11. Tamikosmom on May 21st, 2008 5:17 pm

      If Islam offends … it is called “free speech”. If Islam is offended … it is referred to as “Hate” and is not tolerated.

      Islam must be appeased. WHY?



      U.S. Based Revolution Muslim Website Spreading Messages of Hate
      Wednesday, March 26, 2008

      NEW YORK, N.Y. — On any given day, log on to and a host of startling images appear:

      — The Statue of Liberty, with an ax blade cutting through her side;

      — Video mocking the beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl, entitled “Daniel Pearl I am Happy Your Dead :) “;

      — Video of a puppet show lampooning U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq;

      — The latest speech from Sheikh Abdullah Faisal, an extremist Muslim cleric convicted in the UK and later deported for soliciting the murder of non-Muslims.

      Under the law FBI spokesman Richard Kolko said it is difficult to bring criminal charges against the operators of Web sites like unless specific threats are made against an individual or individuals.

      Kolko while not speaking directly about RevolutionMuslim said radical sites like these are not often prosecuted.

      “It’s usually a First Amendment right if they don’t cross the threshold of making any threats,” said Kolko. “There’s nothing we should or could do.”

      “Until the rhetoric reaches the point in which it’s no longer protected speech under the first amendment, it’s hard to stop it,” said security expert, Harvey Kushner.



      Controversial Anti-Muslim Film Sparks Worldwide Condemnation
      Monday, March 31, 2008

      “Fitna” — “Ordeal” in Arabic — features footage of terror strikes such as 9/11, the Madrid train bombings and the murder of Dutch film director Theo van Gogh, mixed with verses from the Koran. It was up long enough for other file-sharing sites to distribute the film to anyone with an Internet connection. Wilders turned to the Internet to release his film after he failed to find a television distributor.

      The film’s release has caused a ripple effect of negative responses.

      On Sunday, Australia’s Foreign Minister Stephen Smith called it “highly offensive.”

      “It is an obvious attempt to generate discord between faith communities,” Smith said. “I strongly reject the ideas contained in the film and deplore its release.”

      The European Union issued a statement Saturday saying the film serves no other purpose than to inflame hatred.

      U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also condemned the film saying there is no justification for hate speech or the incitement of violence.

      In the Middle East, Iran has summoned the Dutch ambassador to Tehran to discuss the film, Reuters reported. A senior diplomat from Slovenia, which holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, was also called to the ministry in Tehran over Wilders’ film.

      Jordanian lawmakers are taking more severe diplomatic measures and demanded their government cut ties with the Netherlands. Fifty-three lawmakers in the 110-seat parliament have also called for the government to dismiss the Dutch envoy.

      Pakistan’s foreign ministry on Friday summoned the ambassador of the Netherlands in Islamabad and lodged a “strong protest”, according to AFP. It has stepped up the security of the Dutch consulate and businesses in Karachi fearing protests over the the release of the film.

      And in Asia, hundreds of Indonesian students took to the streets Sunday, according to AFP, after a minister called for protests. The students carried posters demanding that authorities shut down websites carrying Wilders’ film.

      Typical of a Jewish Senator Lieberman is against free speech, gun rights and is also in favor of illegal alliens
      SM: Actually why would you bring his religion into it? Do you have a problem with Jewish people? You might want to see what Stephen is doing.

    13. richard on May 21st, 2008 8:37 pm

      I have no intention of clicking on these videos, as the mindset exists that the more they are seen, the more support they get. Something like that, anyway.

      But could it be that YouTube is reasoning that since Islam is now the world’s largest religion (according to an article I read recently, it has supplanted Catholicism … not that Catholicism is the religion, Christianity is, but you know what I mean), appealing to Muslims is a sound commercial move?

      Or maybe the “elite circles” of the people who made bundles off of this idea think it’s cool to denigrate Americans and America?

      If so … let’s remember Lenin’s famous phrase: “When we come to hang the last capitalist but one, the last capitalist will sell us the rope.”

      Concerning that film by Wilders, which I haven’t seen either … why is it that it’s wrong to put on the Internet coverage of actual events?

      Is anyone saying that 9/11 did not occur? That the Madrid train bombings were a myth? That the beheadings, etc., etc., don’t merit coverage?

      Or is it because they point the finger at radical Islam that people are averting their eyes?

      President Bush has pointed out that many more Muslims have been the victims of radical Islam than any other group … why can’t their voices be heard as well?
