"The 2020 U.S. Presidential election is now a “past election” under our policies."

"...we remove content that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election uploaded on or after December 9."

" We will begin issuing strikes for new content uploaded after Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021."

YouTube has determined that mere allegations of things like errors in the biggest, most mail-focused election in US history are sufficient to have channels struck. What does that mean for content creators, the platform, historians, and US election criticism?

Let's dive in.

We're told that democracy dies in darkness...in Virtual Legality.

This action by Google brought me to the decision to remove YouTube from my life. In process with that now. Joined UTREON today.
Emailing channels on YT I have subscribed to, asking them to provide their content on alternative platforms. Hope that bears some fruit :0)

Interesting, but I did already know about the mendacity and tyranny of YouTube.

On the election fraud, this is a far better legal discussion. Sorryt :-)

I just got banned for not saying much but making a funny comment. So I decided to get myself and all my friends out of youtube. They forgot that they did not make the internet but our military did. So youtube get ready to start losing customers.
