Mark Dice youtube channel under attack

I hope most of you here are aware of who Mark Dice is. He's that big dude youtube (& website) blogger from San Diego, California. He keeps making those quirky in-your-face youtube videos demonstrating stupidity of mainstream American society.

[Personally, I don't agree with every single one of his tactics. There is also Jan Helfeld, who has a very different approach of Socratic interviewing method. Both of these bloggers attempt exposing cognitive dissonance. Even though Mark Dice's approach might be off-putting on some occasions, overall I feel he does illustrate cognitive dissonance very well.]

Well guess what? Apparently the Joseph Goebbels rule is here already. Mark Dice's youtube channel has been unceremoniously nuked by Google. If you go to channel link, see error message below.

http://www.youtube.com/user/MarkDice

Alert icon
This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.

I can't speak for either Mark Dice or Google. But to the best of my recollection, every single video I watched from him was his self-produced content, like man on the street interviews. I can't recall any other 3rd party content in them. I can't imagine how or whose copyrights they could possibly infringe upon.

If you check his website blog page, there is following message @ the top.

http://www.markdice.com

YouTube has deleted my channel, YouTube.com/MarkDice and removed all my videos for what they said were "Severe Terms of Service Violations" which is a lie and they have disabled the dispute feature, which usually allows users to file a dispute when videos get removed. Over 55 million views, 265,000 subscribers, and over 800 videos GONE! Please subscribe to my BACKUP channel linked here below. Thanks for all your support and feedback. I'll see what I can do, but as you know it's nearly impossible to tell the truth on such a platform that's owned by a major company. I've had videos flagged and removed in the past and after filing a dispute they almost always get restored, but this time they just shut down my entire channel and currently are not allowing me to even file a dispute. Check my Facebook or Twitter for updates as they come in. Might be a good time to buy some of my books if you want to continue supporting me and continue with your education. They're not in stores, but are in paperback on Amazon and available on most e-readers. Thanks again for all the support. You can also donate via PayPal by clicking the link on the right side of the page if you would like to support my work that way.

Update: He just posted following video explaining censorship on another youtube channel.

Mark Dice has been outright censored by govt. trolls.

It's much more than being "under attack." youtube = govtube

SOME SUCCESS! From Mark Dice's Facebook page...

UPDATE: My backup channel has been RESTORED! hahaha. Sub to www.YouTube.com/TheResistance for now and lets keep up the pressure to have them restore my main channel, YouTube.com/MarkDice Thanks for having my back, folks!

Unbelievable!

Guess what? Even the explanation video I posted in original post has now been nuked by Google.

This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.
Sorry about that.

Mark Dice has really become a marked man by the Gestapo.

...and YouTube has just deleted my backup channel too with no explanation. It had zero strikes and was in good standing, and poof! It's gone now too due to "severe community standards violations," which of course, is a lie. This is censorship pure and simple. If you didn't hear, YouTube just launched a new program last week where government agencies have been granted "super flagging" authority to shut down any channel they want to. I'm serious. Here's an article in the Wall Street Journal about it. http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2014/03/17/youtube-enlists-trusted-flaggers-to-police-videos/

Who's next? At this rate, they could start arbitrarily flagging down James Corbett, Chris Duane, Greg Hunter, Alex Jones, Luke Rudkowski, StormCloudsGathering, Jan Helfeld, Abby Martin, Ben Swann, Jesse Ventura ...... ANYBODY they freaking want to mess with. Because there will be no accountability, and there could be crumbling down of rule of law.

You know those statements during Goebbel's time, they seem so relevant here.

First they came for the Communist Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Communist Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

I say good riddance to this publicity whore.

We don't need fakes like him telling us how stupid people are; casual observation and common sense make that clear.

Edit: I laugh at those who are butthurt by this comment.

Hmm, seems he finally got

Hmm, seems he finally got someones attention. Getting nuked like that must mean whoever decided they didnt like his channel must be pretty powerful.
Considering that his channel could be considered one of the mid range popular ones(as opposed to something like music in popularity), someone must know something.

I havent seen any of his recent videos, but I would put the chance higher that it has something to do with one of them.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Well come on person, if you

Well come on person, if you are going to downvote me, tell me why.

Downvoted by mistake

Drinking, reading, and voting don't always go hand in hand.

I guess I was in the down-voting mood after reading the post above you. After re-reading, I was in error.

My bad.

I love Mark Dice!

Mark Dice tries to sell $1100 one ounce gold coin for $50; no takers.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

If someone

came up to me outside a pawn shop telling me they wanted to sell me something that I could immediately exchange for a higher value, I wouldn't be interested either.

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

Live Leak

It's better than YouTube anyway.

I do 't remember either if he

I do 't remember either if he used copyrighted material, but it could be because he didn't get release forms from some of those people and they complained.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I ws once interviewed "on the street"

by a TV reporter. There was no consent form.

Well, he is not interviewing

Well, he is not interviewing people. He is pretending for them to sign a form without telling them they are being filmed and recorded... California it is illegal.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

A reasonable supposition

Uninformed people don't like to look stupid even if it's the norm.

Gilligan's picture

I'm not so sure ...

... they're in a public place being interviewed by a journalist and filmed by a cameraman. Seems like implied consent to me.

I'd rather be a hungry patriot than a satisfied slave.

True

As I see it, as long as he is not conducting the interview on private property, the interviewee implied consent when he agreed to the interview with a camera in his face. Now if a bunch of the public heard the said interviewee ask to not film him and cover his face and WALK AWAY, that may be grounds for an argument. But if someone stops to answer questions with a camera in front of them, what rights do they have to come back months later when they figure out they can make a quick penny? Real question, if anyone knows. I certainly am not saying I do, I have no idea. But this is how I would like it to be....

Release forms

While collecting signatures for a petition in a public place is fine, it's wise for video producers to obtain release forms from the people they interview on camera, especially if the subjects could be viewed in a negative light. Without a content or release form, the subjects may complain or seek a cease and desist order from the entity publishing or posting the content.

Photo journalists, for example, often obtain release forms from school officials (signed by parents) when they photograph children in public schools. Some parents refuse to sign such forms because they don't want their children photographed.
