YouTube Bans 'Internet Hall Monitor' Right Wing Watch


By Cassandra Fairbanks

UPDATE: The Right-Wing Watch YouTube channel was reinstated after backlash from liberal journalists.

YouTube banned the hyper-partisan far-left organization Right Wing Watch from their platform on Monday.

The organization, which is dedicated to de-platforming conservatives, announced that they had been censored by the video sharing platform on Twitter.

“Our efforts to expose the bigoted view and dangerous conspiracy theories spread by right-wing activists has now resulted in @YouTube banning our channel and removing thousands of our videos. We attempted to appeal this decision, and YouTube rejected it,” Right Wing Watch announced.

YouTube said that their account was terminated due to “severe or repeated violations of their community guidelines.”

The ban is permanent and YouTube has rejected their effort to appeal.

Many of the people RWW have attempted to get censored celebrated the irony of the situation. The organization is frequently referred to by people on the right as the “hall monitors of the internet.”

“RWW regularly stole content from creators and defamed them. Their harassment has finally been countered,” popular YouTuber Tarl Warwick, better known as Styxhexenhammer666, wrote.

Warwick added, “you know you could always use Odysee, Bitchute, Rumble… Oh yeah, wait, you alienated them all by calling them hateful lol. Guess opposing free expression isn’t a great idea, is it?”

Countless conservatives also commented telling the organization to “build their own YouTube,” a comment frequently made by the left when a conservative is censored.

“Good on YouTube,” right-wing commentator Lauren Chen wrote. “You get what you deserve.”

    ALL censorship of US citizens is bad on media platforms. Let just stop foreign actors from posing as Americans.

    Reading their twitter thread its sad, they are so steeped in the lie that they see it as a secret cabal of Nazis got them banned

  6. Crowefans says:

    now report their tweets

    Permanent? No, I don’t think they’ll be banned for very long. This is a blip. It doesn’t matter if they repost content, defame people, or break any community guidelines. They’re far-left and claim to be fighting the fascists therefore, to progressives, anything they do is justified. The person (if it was even a real person) looking at their appeal made a mistake and accidentally held a leftist account accountable; I can almost guarantee they did not look at the channel, saw the name “Right Wing Watch” and assumed it was a right-wing commentary channel. If their channel isn’t back within 30 days I’ll be extremely surprised.

    This isn’t a good thing, it just means that the powers that be have decided the crackdown on conservative views is sufficient, now they are going after those on their side with “problematic” views. Another step to totalitarianism, its just gonna get worse!

    This is exactly what the Left Does. Celebrate the removal of free speech when it doesn’t effect them. If you believe in free speech, you should stand against this. The same way EVERYONE should have protected INFOWARS. Remember. Though I disagree with with what you say, I will die in defense of your right to say it. Imagine what would happen if a bunch of Centervatives (see what I did their). Stood and demanded a detailed explanation. If they were in fact removed for stealing content, or breaking the law… then fine. If not Defend them, their Freedom is your Freedom.

    Just creating a narrative of unbiased censorship. Wagging that damn dog.

    The hammer’s coming to nail every single person that doesn’t fall under the banner of main stream media, right or left, it’d do these organizations good to actually wise up to that fact and learn to play nice with the people they disagree with, else they want to see Colbert and Stelter’s smug wax figurine mugs plastered all over YT until the end of time.

    I never cheer on censorship, but when you push censorship, endorse censorship and deplatforming, and cheer it on when it happens to someone you happen to disagree with, don’t be surprised when you yourself get caught in your own net.

    To steal a quote and twist it from Batman, I won’t censor you, but I don’t have to save you.

    You did this one to yourself. We all warned you about the dangers of censorship. Don’t get mad at us because you didn’t listen.

      Well said. I don’t want anyone censored. I don’t want to see gross behavior in public but I can always look away. I just wish other people could give up their ego and realize the world doesn’t revolve around them and no one cares about other people’s views. Just my way or the highway. My parents censored our house out of their own preference. They didn’t protest Ghostbusters cartoon, they just didn’t let us watch it. If there are no fences people don’t understand boundaries. Good thing the world is round otherwise they would walk off. From Gigi “The world is round but everyone on it is flat.”
