"Freedom of Speech" and YouTube

(click to enlarge message from "Jew Watch" YouTube channel....)

Why don't people understand that there is no such thing as "freedom of speech" on private servers? The haters of the Jewish people are constantly kvetching about "Jewish censorship" and that YouTube is not protecting their "freedom of speech". Sadly, these people fail to comprehend that YouTube does not owe them anything. If YouTube agrees that these people are breaking their rules, then it is YouTube's decision to disable their channels for abuse. Simple as that. The JIDF has every right to list videos and channels on YouTube in which we feel are breaking YouTube's rules. If YouTube agrees, they have every right to disable those channels or remove the videos. No censorship. Just trying to follow the rules. The JIDF fully respects and believes in "the freedom of speech". However, this freedom must be used responsibly, and not to spread hatred or violence. It's one thing (though a rather stupid thing) to "question the Holocaust" in a legitimate way somehow (without saying that "the Jews use it for gain sympathy" and other hateful rhetoric associated with Holocaust denial) and quite another thing to blame all the world's problems on the Jewish people. It's one thing to talk about Islam and quite another thing to celebrate the murder of American soldiers and teach people how to make bombs. There are many problems on YouTube. We are happy that they are relatively more proactive than many other companies in removing hateful material which oftentimes promotes violence and terrorism. However, we are saddened to see such a lack of intelligence from people who complain about being "censored" when they should consider being more reflective on the matter and admit that they are breaking the rules in which they agreed upon signing up to use YouTube in the first place. The bottom line? YouTube doesn't disable accounts and remove videos to censor people. They do it because people are breaking YouTube's rules.
