    I personally don't care but I would wager the higher ups would see Dennis Prager as "extreme".

    I disagree with the decision (I find it dumb), but it's their platform and their right.

    I see the White House still has an account. I guess Trump must not be a white supremacist after all.

    I never really thought Trump was a racist or supremacist directly. I honestly don't think he give's a crap.

    I think he's just a panderer and is willing to accept any grou pof people, if it means money or votes. While this is it's own form of evil, i'm not necessarily going to say Trump himself believes or actively supports what they espouse. He just won't risk alienating them by standing up against them.

    I still think it's a piece of **** excuse and as I said, evil for it's own merrits, but I don't actually think Trump is racist himself

    Not proof of anything. If Trump were held to the same standards as other users, he wouldn't have facebook, twitter and likely instagram.

    Now we just need Twitter to follow up on the same thing.

    Unfortunately it’s politics. We have 2020 candidates that wouldn’t mind a terrorist to vote in our elections. Even if you’re in the US illegally. It’s all about the number of votes they can get.

    Yeah, I always wondered...

    it's against Twitter terms of service to issue threats of violence.

    So, even though he's president, isn't issueing the threat of "Fire and Fury" and Genocide of an entir nation violation of Twitter's terms of service?

    MY EYES.... :eek:

    By the way I was referencing Kanye and Trump as supremacists as they quite often tell people they are the best or have the best or both. :D

    I can't say I ever saw anything like this on YouTube. Then again I don't seek out trash. My subscriptions are bookmarks to various channels, mostly sports and cars. The YouTube subscription thingamajig isn't as efficient so I've never used it.

    I have. Weirdly. Even though similar, my subscriptions are all cars and video games.

    but sure enough I've had the odd alt-right, or even nationalist, pop up. the wierdest is when I had the odd white nationalist or actual neo-nazi stuff pop up... I'm jewish. Why the hell would I want to see that ****.

    You misread. I'm not signed into my account when I use YouTube. The only time I ever sign into Google is to check my email. That's it. I use a separate email address for my phone, and much like that, I just use it for email. I have the YouTube app disabled on my phone and most of Google's other services.

    I use a separate browser for YouTube because it's easier than wading through folders in a 20K bookmark collection. You also don't need to watch a video for it to be recommended.


    Go watch the baby shark video and see how long it takes for it to disappear off of your recommends.

    baby shark, do do ,dododododod... mammma, shark dododdoodod

    I hate you now :p


    I dunno. I don't get the outrage culture. if yuo're outraged or don't like something. Shut up and move on. the only time I get "outraged" is when people are not being treated fairly and equally.

    I see nazi content in my feed, I don't click it to get myself outraged. I ignore it and move on.

    I'm past the age where I give a damn about much. I can't say if I've ever been outraged over anything. I definitely don't like Trump as a Republican and think he's the worst President thus far, but I'm not annoyed enough to go protesting outside with a bunch of people. I'd rather watch a footy match.
