We vow to boycott the purchasing of any products from any company boycotting YouTube’s Adsense program on supposed “moral” grounds. This will take effect immediately until your YouTube ad revenue is turned on. We also request a statement from your company expressing allegiance to the spirit of our Bill of Rights and Constitution specifically the 1st Amendment. And an acknowledgement that like every citizen of this great country your company has a SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY to honor the 1st Amendment and Bill of Rights.
Simply stated we believe that this move to “demonetize” content creators is thinly veiled CENSORSHIP. As your companies “supposed moral stance” on “racist rhetoric” or “violent content” is not reflected in “mainstream media advertising” where countless movies, television shows, news casts, music etc display images, concepts, acts and verbiage dealing in racism, sexism, materialism, greed, violence, profane language, explicit sex acts, innuendos of pedophilia, endorsements of war and countless other hideous, insidious, profane and immoral acts.
Furthermore the companies mentioned have histories of engaging in scandals and illegal activities themselves. HSBC for example laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists groups. GSK China bribery scandal. AT&T spying scandal and the 100 million dollar fine it paid for “misleading consumers” These are but a few examples in a LONG LIST OF CORRUPT AND IMMORAL activities engaged in by said companies.
The hypocrisy is palpable. The timing questionable. The and the end result is an ANTI AMERICAN, anti freedom, anti free market, anti human result. We see this as nothing more then “globalist, fascist” power grab. With the intention of quashing the ever growing independent media and entertainment complex. As you companies political, social and economic interests lie in the preservation of the “Corporate Media Establishment” aka “State sponsored media”
We request that the following companies reinstate their Revenues to Youtube in order to lift out “peoples boycott” on your products. Simple steps can be taken in order to reduce ads being displayed next to “unethical” content. This does not have to include punishing whole segments of the YouTube community and CENSORING unpopular opinions.
