YouTube suspended The Blaze show host Steven Crowder’s channel over the weekend following a display in which he supported new Twitter CEO Elon Musk.
In social media updates Sunday, Crowder explained YouTube flagged a video titled “ ELON MUSK VISITS TWITTER HQ & LIBS GO INTO FULL MELTDOWN! ” on his “ Louder with Crowder” channel for violating its policy on “ harassment, dangers and cyberbullying, ” yet did not identify the specific violation.
“ Trying to find here before, but that one is… very different, ” Crowder detailed in an Instagram blog post.
“ YouTube has released yet ANOTHER hard strike to the channel. No specifics are actually provided but they claim that our segment on Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover is a breach of their deliberately opaque recommendations. ”
Crowder’s temporary YouTube suspension comes just days ahead of the midterm elections, which he suspects is the actual reason for his second hard strike. In case a channel receives three difficult strikes within a 90 day time period, the channel is usually permanently suspended .
“ Do you remember the reason behind our last strike? ” Crowder asked his audience.
“ It was due to none other than @karilake pointing to election-related issues for a primary IN WHICH SHE WON!! ”
“ Look, we have been going into an election period. One where, if the weighing scales of media were balanced, conservative Republicans would win in a landslide! ” Crowder wrote on Instagram.
“ They can’t possess that. Make no error, there is a reason that these two strikes directly relate to:
⁃ a future governor who has spoken out against huge tech
⁃ Support of a man (Musk) in whose purchase and plan for a big tech platform would fundamentally allow more free plus fair media coverage of elections. ”
Crowder also suspects the increased popularity of his approach, which has received nearly “ 100, 000, 000 plays/downloads within 30 days, ” presents a threat to the capabilities that be who avoid want him to be able to query establishment narratives.
“ Make no error, the machine is in full push. They are deathly afraid of you and the tectonic shift which is beginning to take place in our country. ”
Crowder says he’ll continue streaming on alternative video platform Rumble until he returns in order to YouTube on Nov. 21.
