On Monday, July 13, YouTube terminated both my main channel and Roosh Hour Clips channel, deleting all my videos even though I did not have any existing community strikes. They also deleted all my personal favorites and playlists.
Since I don’t glorify violence against any group, I presume I was banned for “encouraging hatred” (i.e. speaking the truth) about sodomites who groom children and those who worship in the synagogues of Satan. It seems that my coded means to discuss the current purveyors of evil was not enough to keep my account in good standing, and so I was banned like many other dissidents before me, including Alex Jones, Nick Fuentes, Owen Benjamin, E. Michael Jones, Rick Wiles (TruNews), Gavin McInnes, Stefan Molyneux, and David Icke.
Last night on DLive I discussed my thoughts about the banning:
I choose the e-hermit option
When I originally joined YouTube, I never had to self-censor myself. I could say whatever I wanted as long as I didn’t promote violence. Once YouTube started partnering with Jewish groups such as the ADL, speech for everyone on the platform was progressively curtailed. Who is to say that won’t happen to another platform that today advertises “free speech”? Chinese-owned DLive seems fine now, but no one can make any guarantees of its future direction. Therefore I will not spend several years building myself up on a site that will arbitrarily cancel me.
From this point on, I intend to take the path of an e-hermit. I will hunker down onto my own domain and forum and host as much content as I can, including videos. There are dozens of cloud providers for video self-hosting instead of the two or three video platforms. Even if I get banned from every cloud provider in existence, I will simply rent dedicated servers from one of hundreds of hosting companies and serve videos that way. It will be significantly harder for them to stop me now.
To defray costs, I can take up the fashionable idea of charging $5/month for access. Perhaps I will leave my podcast free but save videos for members, and maybe I can throw up some bonus content as well. I’ll figure something out, but first I will begin work on establishing an archive for all my deleted videos (in the meantime, you can use Bitchute).
It’s clear to me that we are only at the beginning of an aggressive censorship campaign. While it proceeds, I will get cozy on my own domains and continue creating content. My audience will get smaller, and my influence will surely shrink, but for those who have ears to hear what I have to say, let them hear.
