Mark Dice youtube channel under attackSubmitted by the_chiefe71 on Sat, 03/22/2014 - 17:34
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.
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.
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.
