BuzzFeed Strikes Again

NSFW Warning: All the links in this post contain bad words and politically incorrect statements. I can’t help it; this is an intrinsic part of the story. The easily offended should move along.

BuzzFeed has succeeded in deplatforming yet another YouTuber. Tim Pool, Styx, and Vee (undoubtedly others) have discussed this case. A BuzzFeed blogger* wrote this hit piece about a fourteen-year-old girl with almost 900k subscribers on YouTube. She has a potty mouth and says things that disturb Lefty’s universe. BuzzFeed still has a comment section, and those comments make fun reading:

This article should be retitled “This is how to beat up a 14 year old kid with left wing totalitarianism”

She is awesome…buzzfeed can only dream of this amount of views… at least you people can always learn to code

thanks for highlighting, watched video and subbed, thanks buzzfeed helping to red pill me

As night follows day, YouTube has removed her video in the wake of the BuzzFeed piece because it allegedly contains “hate speech.” Fortunately, we live in an era when nothing can be fully censored on the InterWebs. Her video lives on at BitChute.

Sure, her stuff is edgy and maybe a kid this young shouldn’t be posting such material. That’s up to her parents to regulate. It’s not as if they are likely to be unaware of her doings online. The more significant issues are

  1. How does this deplatforming work? Does the BuzzFeed blogger contact YouTube and threaten to make them look bad if they don’t rid themselves of this meddlesome child? (Vee’s conjecture)
  2. Why are the legacy media so interested in YouTubers like this? Is it ideological or is it simply a business strategy to eliminate competitors? (Vee and Styx).
  3. What is the appropriate and useful response?

The motivations of the Enemy of the People are less important than response. Many YouTubers also have BitChute channels. Serious people like Sharyl Attkisson have Gab accounts. Minds.com is an open-source Twitter/Facebook- like social media site, minus the censorship. SubscribeStar is an alternative to Patreon without the added extra deplatforming feature. DuckDuckGo is a search engine without creepy tracking; so is Startpage. ProtonMail is the alternative to Gmail minus the privacy invasion. Brave is a browser that’s less creepy than most. For even more anonymity, use Tor.

Go forth and support these alternatives by using them and maybe even throwing them a few shekels. Censorship will only get worse in the run-up to the 2020 election. Lefty’s running scared. Cornered animals bite. Be careful out there.

*The author of the BuzzFeed piece once tweeted “KILL a straight white man on your way to work tomorrow.” Talk about hate speech!

  1. These sites aren’t against bad language so it is where the bad language is focused toward that gets people in trouble. Milo got in trouble for having the wrong enemies and not wearing a pink hat. (Okay, I made up the last one.)

    Is that the illegitimate love child of Ben Shapiro and Adam Carolla?

    Ben Shapiro is too wimpy. This girl could kick his butt any day of the week and twice on Sundays. As he demonstrated in a recent BBC interview, Shapiro is a hothouse flower.

    Yes, but would he wear it respectfully?

    He would wear it flamboyantly, of course.

  5. I am for people having viable alternatives. If a company does something they don’t like they can go across the street. Conservatives should be careful about putting their eggs all in one basket and seek out and support other companies.

    The willingness to use the F word was why I added Adam Carolla to the gene pool.

    As for the girl kicking ass, I doubt it. In the video, there seems to be a cut every sentence or few. This was not a continuous rant, whether scripted or extemporaneous.

    This was likely heavily scripted (not by the girl alone) and probably took several days and many takes to record.

    Yeah, but she’s 14 and Shapiro is what, 35? Of course it’s scripted. She says so. Of course she has a collaborator; she also says so.

    In that now-famous BBC interview, Shapiro acted like the 14-year-old girl. As others have pointed out, Shapiro only looks good when matched with, I believe the expression was, “emotionally unstable coeds.” And, btw, Shapiro is also scripted. If I hear him say “facts don’t care about your feelings” one more time…

    It’s worth watching his BBC debacle. Skip to the last minute or so.

    She says all of this up front.  Her collaborator is another youtuber known as Vaporub Boy.

    As for the cuts, you’re probably just not familiar with how vlogs are put together.  It’s the same style as everybody else from Pewdiepie on down. It’s actually how studio music and voice recordings are edited as well, it’s just that people in that world are more conscientious about closing up the seams.

    Regardless of how it was edited, I thought it was pretty kickass, especially for a 14 year old.  I can think of a lot worse replies to her critics than “If you’re still pretending to be mad at me…suck a fat c**k in hell. If you’re a Gen-Z-er, never censor yourself and speak freely until the day you die.”

    Indeed.  It’s nice to see people are aware of this. For example on her Youtube channel She mentions:

    BITCHUTE (for when I get banned of YouTube): https://www.bitchute.com/soph/

    and also has a backup for her Patreon.

    Youtube has two different standards:

    – community guidelines.  applies to all content.

    – advertiser friendly guidelines.  If you want your content to be monetized.

    He got in trouble for talking casually about his (claimed) experience of having sex with a religious leader at the age of 14.  He couldn’t walk that one back and it was used to clobber him.

    Her video has so many quotable lines. And who cares if some were written by a kid a couple of years older? He’s still half Shapiro’s age. Anyway, Soph is the face of the channel and Soph is the one who got censored.

    If she’s right that Gen-Zers are more like her, then there’s hope for the West. I’m skeptical but cautiously optimistic. Either way, we can help the cause by amplifying her voice while Shapiro is busy clutching his pearls over muh Drumpf.

    I didn’t see that. What is her Patreon alternative? After they removed Sargon, I deplatformed Patreon. Unfortunately, a couple of non-political creators also got hurt in the process: collateral damage.

    As far as I know, she’s had two videos removed… one of them for telling the YT CEO that she had her address, a gun and a terminal disease, and she had 7 minutes to make her will.  OK, that’s pretty much strike-worthy.  I’m not sure of the logic of blocking her comments.  Definitely she’s not advertiser-friendly, so having that flag is understandable.

    1. How does this deplatforming work? Does the BuzzFeed blogger contact YouTube and threaten to make them look bad if they don’t rid themselves of this meddlesome child? (Vee’s conjecture)

    I think this is standard SJW rheeeeing.  If YT notices something in violation, they’ll nuke it for sure.

    1. Why are the legacy media so interested in YouTubers like this? Is it ideological or is it simply a business strategy to eliminate competitors? (Vee and Styx).

    SJW’s are terrified when they see people this based.  Better jump in and rheeeee with maximum enthusiasm.

    1. What is the appropriate and useful response?

    My noti0ns: Laughing at the SJWs is a good start.  A fourteen year old that says the F word?  They pretend it’s the end of the world, let’s have some fun at their expense.  Supporting based and red pilled millennials seems like a good idea too.

    That was my reaction when she said something like Millenials grew up all watching MTV and [something about caring very much about having the correct opinions] but Gen Z grew up with the internet, with access to a wide range of ideas and [the habit of judging ideas for ourselves.]  I like the title also:  Be Not Afraid.

    Thanks for the good collection of leads.

    Maybe. Is Susan Wojcicki really afraid of a 14-year-old girl all the way across the continent? Credible threats are ban-worthy. A kid making an edgy joke? Not so much. This looks more like a good excuse for hassling a kid who’s politically incorrect. I’m sure there’s much worse stuff on YouTube that no one cares about. It’s selective enforcement. I think this is what you were getting at here:

    Yes! And that’s exactly why people like her have to be promoted. The Normies have no idea what’s going on.

    Right, good response. Ridicule works. But alternatives are also important. As an aside, over at the legacy site I got some pushback for suggesting people use Gab and Bitchute. I was told that we should use the law to crush Google and Facebook instead of nurturing and supporting alternatives. It’s a “loser strategy.”

    Sometimes, I don’t recognize the people who are allegedly on my side anymore. Dave Rubin, Sargon, and Tim Pool seem closer to my views these days even though I’m sure we’d disagree on many points. Freedom of speech is so fundamental that I’ll make common cause with almost anyone for it.

    I think this is the crux of  the problem. People read things out of context. Jokes and hyperbole are missed. Madonna can dream about blowing up the White House and nothing happens. (As long as it is not Barach Obama in that White House.)

    Now I am in trouble because I am on the same side as DocLor when it comes to free speech.

    I thought one of the main tenets of the free market was supporting others. Since when have conservatives been against competition. I understand and I am not against taking legal remedy but that usually doesn’t work out too well.
