Steven Crowder is a conservative comedian with millions of followers on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, and yesterday he became the latest victim of censorship and demonetization because a whiny little bitch at Vox got his feelings hurt.
Carlos Maza a former Media Matters employee, and Media Matters exists specifically to try to target and attack Fox News and other conservatives, for the sole purpose of silencing them by any means necessary. He readily admits that’s why he began working there.
He’s gay and Latino, and despite the fact that he’s probably well off he seems to think he’s some sort of victim because he’s part of two “marginalized” communities.
Crowder makes fun of him a lot because, 1) Crowder is a comedian, and 2) Carlos works for Vox, which is a SJW propaganda media outlet, and Carlos often says and writes dumb things that Crowder can mock on his show. Carlos refers to himself as “queer,” “gay,” and “Latino,” which is why Crowder often calls him the gay Latino, or the lispy queer, because he has a lisp and calls himself queer. Either way, it’s comedy and it makes people laugh so get over it.
But these whiny butthurt little bitches hate comedy more than anything. They want us to live in a boring, censorious world where feelings are more important than free expression. That’s why last week Carlos began his one man campaign to silence Crowder.
“Wah, wah, wah, someone was mean to me on the Internet.”
Shut up. It’s words on a computer screen. You weren’t actually hurt. I’ve been doxxed before too and my phone number was put on Craigs List by Wayne Sobonek with an ad for a free kayak and another one for a threesome. I got thousands of text messages that day along with some threats, which I get on the regular. Big deal. If you don’t want shit like that to happen then don’t become a blue checkmarked public figure at a multi million dollar media outlet. If you’re famous this is going to happen. Get over it or find a new line of work.
He’s really mad that Crowder sells “Socialism is for figs” shirts on YouTube.
It’s a joke. He specifically used a different word that wasn’t “fags” to see if people would still take offense to it. And right on cue you proved his point for him. Either way, he’s blatantly lying when he says the shirt says “socialism is for fags,” and even if it did, so what? So someone else said a word you don’t like. The Internet doesn’t exist to protect your feelings.
These speech Nazis don’t want people to speak freely. They realize that platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter are the modern day public squares. They are the vehicles for free speech, and they are a monopoly. They are more powerful than the government and buttnuts like Carlos Maza realize that. So they whine and bitch and complain to the tech Gods, and claim to be victims of “harassment,” and shame the platform itself until they finally take down people they don’t like.
In an interview for the Washington Post he actually said this:
.@YouTube finds all the bullies LGBT people tried to escape from in high school and gives them the weapons and platform they need to keep tormenting us in adulthood.
It's a platform for monsters masquerading as an ally to the LGBT people they target.

“The difference between bullies in middle school and YouTube, is having a principal or teacher step in and remove the bully from the equation entirely.”
This guy is actually calling for YouTube to act like the teacher. He’s crying to the teacher that the other kid in class is mean to him, and he wants the teacher to put him in timeout. Except timeout in this case is expulsion.
Things really heated up when this dipshit got involved:
The congresswoman with by far the largest following on social media is actively taking the side of a guy who is trying to silence a conservative he doesn’t like on the third most trafficked website in the world (owned by the most highly trafficked website in the world, but totes not a monopoly). This is now the government directing a platform to take more action to ban political enemies in the name of “protecting” one guy from harassment.
He’s had celebrities like this moron urging YouTube to silence Crowder as well.
Bitch ass said that even if he got his way (by banning Crowder) he’d still be a victim.
Crowder knew this was going on so he made one of the funniest videos I’ve ever seen, “apologizing” to people he’s mocked on his show.
I need to do one of those for people who have appeared on Turtleboy. Carlos was not happy about that though.
He was making a joke out of it because you’re a joke. These people have no sense of humor, and they hate they idea that people are having fun at their expense. They want us to all live in the vapid, miserable existence they choose to have.
Anyway, YouTube did a thorough “investigation” and determined that he didn’t actually violate any of their terms of service.
(2/4) Our teams spent the last few days conducting an in-depth review of the videos flagged to us, and while we found language that was clearly hurtful, the videos as posted don’t violate our policies. We’ve included more info below to explain this decision:

(4/4) Even if a video remains on our site, it doesn’t mean we endorse/support that viewpoint.
There are other aspects of the channel that we’re still evaluating– we’ll be in touch with any further updates.
— TeamYouTube (@TeamYouTube) June 4, 2019
He bitched and whined about how they condone hate speech, and then hours later this happened:
Update on our continued review–we have suspended this channel’s monetization. We came to this decision because a pattern of egregious actions has harmed the broader community and is against our YouTube Partner Program policies. More here: https://t.co/VmOce5nbGy

Translation – they gave into the mob, even though they couldn’t find any examples of rules that Crowder broke.
When they demonetize you it means you don’t get to have ads on your videos anymore. When you’re Crowder that costs you a lot of money. Creators have to get paid, because this is their job. This is why people go after our advertisers and got us blacklisted by Google AdSense (the same people who put ads on YouTube) – to cut off the funding for legitimate businesses they don’t like, and in doing so silence them completely. They want entertaining people to jobs working at the mill so they won’t have time to create content that millions of people want to consume.
But even that wasn’t enough for him.
This is why you never, ever, ever give an inch with these people. Because it’s never enough. Just tell them to fuck off and they’ll be powerless. As you can see, Carlos is not happy with demonetization. He wants him to not be able to sell merchandise or speak at all on YouTube. And of course he got his way with that too….
But as usual, it wasn’t enough to satisfy him.
He thinks he’s some sort of celebrity now, and is directing the media on how to cover his bitch fit.
But here’s the thing with censorship. When you urge powerful platforms like YouTube to silence creators, tons of other people get silenced as well. Like this guy, who is a left wing news reporter.
Naturally Carlos couldn’t see this one coming.
You did this you delusional fucking idiot. You advocated to give YouTube the broad power to take action against creators. Anyone who has ever covered anything remotely controversial is going to be taken down now for hate speech. Next up are rap videos and Samantha Bee.
LOL. Just kidding. They offend the right people so they get blanket immunity from these rules.
They took down tons of channels yesterday, including a history teacher who chronicled speeches on his channel because he had Hitler clips on there. We are erasing history, destroying comedy, and harming people financially because one idiot got his feelings hurt and organized a mob.
He doesn’t hide the fact that this is his goal either.
This is sick. Our founding fathers would be spinning in their graves right now. John Adams stupid wife urged him to censor the press because they said mean things about him, mocked the way he looked, and she said they shouldn’t be allowed to do that to the President. Like an idiot he signed the Sedition Act, which outlawed speech that could potentially incite violence against the state. Thomas Jefferson, like the dominant alpha male that he was (I wanna do a whole blog on how Jefferson is the greatest defender of free speech in American history), fought him on this and eventually defeated him in the next election and got it repealed. These people want to bring the Sedition Act back.
Here’s the thing though – Carlos has written tons of offensive shit himself, including calls for assaulting people he disagrees with.
But no one is trying to silence him. That’s because the left has become the side of censorship and no fun, while the right has become the side of free speech and humor. And this is exactly why I’ll be voting red in every election moving forward until the left starts to disassociate themselves with speech Nazis like Carlos Maza.

Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service. Twitter has done the same, and trolls mass reported our blog to Google AdSense thousands of times, leading to demonitization. We can get by and survive, but we could really use your help.

I am outraged by this. Bob Ross deserved better and for that, we apologize. That being said, please make your version of this apology video. That would be absolute gold.
I think I have AIDS after reading this.
Hey Mazza you queer, eat shit and die. Oh wait, you already eat shit. Well just die then.
Libs and social media are desperate to criminalize white nationalism. Crowder will not be silenced.
If June is Pride Month, can July be ashamed for my country month? Fucking phaggots.
Put a patch over his right eye and declare him Captain of the ‘SS Cupcake’
In addition to 75 years ago on D Day let’s nit forget the men who are deployed in every shit country around the world that would like nothing more than to kill every one of us. What a bunch of whiny pussies
The 1st Amendment does not give one the freedom of speech. It prevents the government from making laws outlawing speech (with the limitation of yelling fire in a movie theater etc…). Some people might not understand the difference…but it is a big difference. If google, facebook, or any other private company wants to restrict speech, that is their prerogative. In a free market that company can keep on offending a segment of the population as long as it keeps making money. If half the people who voted for President Trump (30,000,000) stopped using these private services the companies would either go out of business or change their business model. Anyone complaining about these companies, yet uses them should shut up and quit bitching.
But a privately owned bakery is forced to make a cake in the shape of a cock, or get sued out of existence.
The Supreme Court ultimately ruled in favor of the cake shop.
Facebook is the modern day stassi,google the modern communists. They come from the same tribe oddly. Patrick Henry we had a president Wilson sell the country to these foreigners in 1913 they ruined America in 90 years.
I watched the apology video the other day. Hilarious!
If the worse thing that happens to you is having words hurt your feelings, you’re one of the luckiest people on the planet.
The way of the world now. Tell me? Who speaks for those of us offended by Maza’s offense? I’m offended at his offense! I’m offended by all people who are offended! Who speaks for me?
This victimized cupcake should take a little time out of his very busy day and youtube what took place at Normandy France 75 years ago today. He should ponder if he would even have existed today had the unselfish Americans who died violent deaths not succeeded in their goals. They died to allow this asswipe the pleasure of taking on his role of professional victim.
Stop your fucking crying and grow up.
Can I give the good Doctor a thousand more thumbs up?
Mega thumbs up to Dr Wu
You are definitely with me Dr Wu (shameless Steely Dan reference)
Katy lies, You can see it in her eyes.
Can anyone imagine Carlos Maza or any of his fellow travelers hitting Omaha beach with an M1 in his hands?
Please try to control your guffaws lest his feelings get boo boos.
I’m getting close to being a cord cutter and dumping Comcast.
For TV it’s between PlayStation Vue and Youtube.
Youtube actually comes out slightly ahead for me.
But, they sure are making me hesitant to forking over $50 a month to them.
They wouldn’t have gone too far fighting with pillows and magic wands while wearing tutus.
These cucks cant even figure out if they are a boy or girl

Rest in Peace Sir
This is also about bringing more ad revenue to Vox.
Advertisers can’t advertise w/Crowder et al, so they will have to advertise w/someone else (i.e., Vox).
PS, please do the blog on Jefferson.
Nothing stops an advertiser from working with the directly with the youtube channel and inserting an ad there usually touted by the host.
What Youtube is doing is the “Skip ad after 10 seconds” ads at the beginning. Youtube does the leg work for appropriate ads for the appropriate channels. The youtube channel just collects and has no idea what the ad even is.
LTT with over 8 million subscribers has their own ads because they beat the bushes for their sponsors. They aren’t controversial at all, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a youtube placed ads in their videos. Linus, the L in LTT has said: The thing that made us successful was Youtube. The moment we became successful I’ve been trying to get off of Youtube because they control the access and have always controlled the access.
Another channel AvE, a one man band with an estimate 1 to 2 million subscribers is so pissed off at Youtube he pulled his subscriber count off of the web page (which cost him money). He’s at a point where he doesn’t give a fuck anymore. Also, he uses Patreon and he doesn’t give a fuck about them either. He’s also threatened to pull hundreds of older videos off of Youtube as a big “Fuck You”. Just because he’s been demonetized over a couple of things here and there and Sargon of Akkad has been fucked with by YT + Patreon. What’s his channel all about? Lathes, CNC, hydraulic pressure, Power tool disassembly. This is the only guy who if he went to a pay for view service that I would pay for. And I don’t own a lathe or do CNC work.

People need to realize they don’t have a right to not be offended.
