YouTube terminated the Brownells channel

YouTube Terminates Channel of Firearms Parts Retailer
https://www.nationalreview.com/news/...nel-shut-down/

Quote:
YouTube suddenly terminated the channel for the firearms parts company Brownells, the company claimed on Saturday.

“Brownells’ YouTube channel has been terminated without warning or notice,” Brownells’ Twitter account stated.

The 80-year-old gun supplies company reached out to followers on social media, asking them to contact Google, which owns YouTube, about the move.

“If you’re opposed to the attacks on our communitys 1st & 2nd Amendment rights, please contact Google,” Brownells said.

Comments on social media were mostly critical of the move, many users saying Brownells is the wrong entity to go after to prevent gun violence.

While I think it sucks, it is not an "attack" on anything. Unless of course Google is run by the Gov't. Google is private entity that provides a service and they can decide who uses that service and who does not.

You're right, of course, but that defense kinda ignores reality. Google and Facebook have created platforms that are the functional equivalent of soapboxes on public sidewalks a hundred years ago. The companies themselves recognize this, which is why they pay lip service to their "non-partisan" nature despite all evidence to the contrary.

Who owned those soap boxes of yesteryear??? It sux that a company that spouts open communication is doing the opposite but that is the risk when you hand over control to a company and expect it to be fair and balanced when it is people running that company that decide what is fair and balanced.

I am actually surprised that google itself has not come under anti-trust litigation, it is large enough now that it can manipulate the market on its own.

Good. They always have good videos for installing trigger kits and sights.

All this proves is people now days have not evolved from the days of the sandbox where calling people names or shaming them has more power than it ever did. I guess Jack would have jumped off a bridge if everyone told him to..."
