A note about "free speech" on Facebook and YouTube

Free speech does not exist on private servers of private companies with private rules against the promotion of hatred and violence. If you're going to bring up that "argument" it would help if you had an inkling of an idea of what "free speech" actually means and where it actually applies. 

Facebook's terms state;  

You will not post content that is hateful, threatening, pornographic, or that contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.
YouTube's terms state:
We don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).
Both companies have a moral and ethical obligation to proactively enforce their terms in standard ways.  Unfortunately, we find that their "enforcement" of their own rules is both subjective and selective in nature, as the promotion of Jew hatred and Islamic terrorism is infecting the internet, along with millions upon millions of young minds. 

We have seen these companies take proactive measures against certain individuals with strong political and religious views, but they seem negligent in their duties to remove hateful and violent content. Not only do they not proactively remove problematic material, but they also do not seem to respond to thousands upon thousands of reports. 

People who espouse hateful and violent views on Facebook and YouTube are allowed to roam free, whereas those of us who try to fight and expose the problems, are censored.
