Right wing YouTube echo chambers and clickbait Anonymous 06/11/2019 (Tue) 02:20:37 [Preview] No. 20880
As a leftist I notice YouTube recommends rightwing videos to me all the time, even though I prefer to watch left-leaning videos. What the fuck is going on? All the videos they link me are moronic, and I get ads to donate to Dobakd Trump's campaign, or to watcher Prager University videos.

I think Youtibe realizes that making you watch right wing videos increases your engagement, your anger, and makes you spend more time on YouTube which makes them money. They're complicit in capitalizing on a growing hate machine. I found this article about right wing radicalization on YouTube illuminating:

I like to think for myself, so I actively seek out both sides of any issue. I don't like letting a label dictate what I can and can't think.

Labeling creates useful associations. I.e. There's major differences between a democratic socialist and a neoliberal.

I would not count the NYT as a particularly reliable source in light of their conduct better than most
youtube is a more right leaning place politically
I got caught in a few left leaning echo chambers.
PragerU is just dog shit attempting to legitimise themself and claim to represent the right

OP, why the fuck do you care that OTHER people have OTHER opinions than your own?

Do you really want everyone to be a robot class who can't express their own feelings, or their own opinions?

Why do you support censorship, OP?

Why the fuck do you support billionaires trampling over the normal recommendation algorithms on YouTube? And spouting awful ideas like that the British empire wasn't very bad for the subjugated, which poor people don't have enough money to contradict. Obviously you're yet another a Nazi who wants to eradicate democracy itself, so your enlightened strongmen can lead us without any chance if them being corrupted. It's dumb; dumb people believe dumb things. I bet in you're deluded mind you think colleges look like this now.

Aren't a lot of people getting kicked off of youtube or demonetized, left or right?
The demonetization thing is bigger than one might thing as apparently if you're monetized you have a higher chance of getting on the front page or in someone's recommendation lists.

It's no secret really youtube is catering to large media networks in lieu of the content creators that made youtube youtube. They'd rather have a monologue of Jimmy Kimmel trending than a dude farting or anyone talking about politics that wasn't Anderson Cooper or Dave Muir.

The guy thinks Dennis Pragger's corporation should be allowed to say what it wants. He naturally also thinks a baker's company should be allowed to denny service to anyone for any reason. Because lawyers have dictated that corporations are legally people now with all of the same rights, even though they're fictional entities and they don't even breathe.

But then when the almighty corporation which is accountable to no government deplatforms Alex Jones, or demonetize a homophobic influencer, suddenly the "libertarians" call for government regulation! Not out of any principled reasoning, but as an exception in a naked grasp for more power.

In the case of say a Twitter they have a point as they provide (US, probably others) government services via social media.
As for youtube I haven't seen anyone saying that althought they probably are. At the same time you freak out over everything and once again fail to realize this is effecting more people than those on the alt-right, a lot of them not even political content creators.

The problem with broadly generalizing the British Empire is that it's a much too broad a period of space and history to do that accurately. If you're talking about the 'first' British Empire, you have slavery and transportation playing a much bigger role (I'm not saying it was good or bad) and arguably with India one could say that Company rule was first empire and Imperial rule was second. The second Empire could be argued to be broadly better depending on your point of view (if you're a /pol/ack the victorian era would be totally bad because it's when ideas of diversity and the first black government employees emerged) but it too had downsides depending on your point of view, such as Cecil Rhodes accelerating African colonization, the Boer War, meddling in internal affairs of Japan and China among other small nations, and so on. Of course there were the good aspects of modern infrastructure, science, education and medicine brought to the colonies that otherwise likely would never have got these, as well as (again depending on your point of view as to whether this was good or bad) playing the single biggest role in ending slavery around the world. Getting back to your point of 'the british raj wasn't overflowing with shit', this is quite inaccurate: there are many sources of the time describing the filth and squalor the Indians lived in.
Having said all of that, I am a huge cocksucking faggot for giving this much of a fuck about a ton of bullshit.

I didn't say they were great. Indeed the wholesale invasion of other territories is always wrong unless somehow done so in self-defense. And I corrected the erroneous statement of British rule improving life in India that >>20928 made - it most certainly did not. Despite the supposed improvements in medicine, the natives tended to die in greater numbers to disease under the British. On the other hand, not all of the colonies demanded independence. The UAE did not wish independence, for example. In the end the point is I'm not some gay /pol/ack defending the British Empire as entirely good, but I'm not going to say that it was entirely bad either.

Google owns and controls all of the content and search on the net for the most part. For instance, if you look up hillary clinton's email it won't let you search, another thing they do is program what you watch, for instance they know that I hate the NWO and I hate the damn puppet they have in office in the U.S. Trump, so what do they do? fill my twitter, google search, whatever they can with trump! I don't follow that idiot! I don't follow the fucking Kardashians, and yet i get all sorts of tweets and general crap in my face bout it. Everything we do is recorded and spied on nowadays, there really will be no more privacy anymore! It's all part of this NWO Agenda 21 and part of it is the one world religion of satanism, pushing all sorts of shit at us from all of the tranny's doing makeup ads to children dressed in drag.It is sick thinking, it's no conspiracy theory. Everything we see, listen to, read, even the food we eat is controlled whether we like to think so or not.Our weather, the poison they put in the sky, all of it leading to depopulation and full control of the sheeple.

Your mixed market debt economy that produced the U.S. technocracy is only the natural result of a totally free 'democracy'. You live in a world where foreign speculators and government cronies control your nation by setting the rules for your native companies for which you so happily and ignorantly comply and live by. These companies are higher and reign supreme of your own republic's Constitution. It doesn't get any better considering when it deals with the internet, based from centralized architectures and networks with little to no representation or accountability. All at the press of a single button. If the average demographic in the U.S. is going to be less than a 92 IQ with a dependence on da gubbermint and big name consumer electronics then that's exactly the democracy you get and deserve. A democracy ruled by a corrupt centralized government-corporation and a docile ignorant niggercattle public undergoing artificial stimulation, sterilization, and eventual replacement. The tarded-public will be too busy and retarded to rebel and just smart enough to be busy working themselves over and not adopting sound technological changes and practices that would be years too late to make any difference and be co-opted otherwise, and while the folks on the far-right end of the bell curve will be forced into a box of fake dilemmas and options, to deal with these superficial issues of 'muh hate', 'muh capitalism', and 'i'll vote magenta next election'. It's the intellectual equivalent of rearranging the chairs on the Titanic, except this time we're paying for the experience again, again, and again as our captors strap and chain us down as we approach an endless dark bottom.

Who gives a fuck what amount of 'hate' or 'propaganda' you'll find on their platform if you're not actually advocating for autonomy of your own thoughts and what you consume. You would be more concerned with getting regulation, untampered algorithms, expansion of free-speech, to break the technocratic monopoly on speech, the breaking up of vamparist companies, or at the very least promoting and building upon an alternative and competing platform? Maybe you're not because you know within yourself that your true political opposition, while not the controlled opposition, are going to be effectively neutralized. Apart from that, do you know what the saddest thing is though, OP? These companies used to be small and had a natural life cycle and death, but now adays that isn't guaranteed. Especially with crony crapitalism, the advent of 21st century globalization and the limitless supply of consumers and credit. The retarded public will keep using them because its convenient, those that don't comply will be easily replaced, the new slaves will be favored in this artificial eugenics program by social and economic incentives, and the more the bell curve drops the more likely we will keep these monopolies, worse to this current extent, and so bad that we may never be able to fight again. What you fear isn't radicalization, that is the only natural recourse when these capitalist vampires acquire so much power that they oust people from participating in the modern economy, strip their speech, and in some countries throw them in jail. You don't fear radicals. You fear change, a change of the status quo from everything being conveniently in one place remaining unchallenged without opposing opinions, with your happy feels™, tv junkfood, and tinder. It's ultimately everyone's' prison by lack of will, ultimately by choice and therefore by default. It's what you chose.

talking points his whole existence on Jewtube. Even if it were so no should give a fuck. No one really gets 'deradicalized' either. Those thoughts never go away, nor does ignoring the political or economic issues of people you despise either. The whole radicalization and demonetization agenda is just bait. While it does have real and tangible short term effects in the market, it is simply a misdirection of bigger factors at play. No one is gonna remember Caleb Cocain or Carlos Mencia whatever the fag at Vox is. Get ready though, OP. Google and other kin are gearing up for an election. People will remember that, that is if IQ scores bounce back.

tldr; OP is only concerned with surface level issues. I could have sworn you were a troll but the pic proved otherwise. Go back to watching the American classic, Dick n' Muttimer.

watch memey political stuff it's gonna give you more memey political stuff. youtube's new-"ish" buzzword is engagement so they want toxic comment sections and a good mix of thumbs up AND down so they can tell their advertisers look look how people don't just watch stuff on youtube they LIVE on youtube.

So there are these annoying door-to-door bug spray sales guys that start spouting a load of lying bullshit if you answer the door. Their insecticide is "organic" and "natural" and "safe" because it's made of Chrysanthemums! It's bullshit. The lying cocksuckers use synthetic pyrethrin just like everybody else because it's a thousand times cheaper than actually boiling down tons of flowers and the shit kills anything smaller than a matchbox. It's deadly to bees, butterflies, and all other pollinators. It's deadly to salamanders and frogs and annelids. They're smarmy assed lying pieces of shit, so the next time one knocks on your door, consider blasting him with piss and shoving the pointed end of a pool cue through his guts before you kick him backwards down the stairs.

As a leftist you probably have quite peculiar notion of "right wing" is. To you folks anything that is not their particular brand of proper socialism is "right wing". Thus I believe that what you perceive as right wing bias youtube bias can be caused by the fact that your socialism is just not as popular. That and confirmation bias of course.
