Google and YouTube Terminate USA Really’s Accounts without Warning
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA – July 4, 2018
Right on the day before the 4th of July, Google has suspended USA Really’s account. USA Really has not received any e-mails or text messages from Google telling us that the account is disabled. When logging into USA Really’s account, Google directed us to the following notice: “Your account is disabled. If you’re redirected to this page, your Google Account has been disabled.”
When reading the terms and policies, they offered no clues as to what policy we may have violated. “We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct”, Google’s Terms of Service said. There’s simply no explanation as to what exactly USA Really has done wrong or when we missed the warning signs.
The only reasonable explanation why USA Really’s account was suspended by Google is that we created a YouTube channel, connected to it and started to upload videos.
As evidence, within two hours after Google suspended the account, YouTube also terminated USA Really’s channel “for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines”.
When trying to watch the USA Really videos, you see only a black screen and the following message: “This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated”.
During an interview with USA Really the Israeli politician and media expert Avigdor Eskin explained how censorship of social media works.
“If you’re an American citizen, you can say whatever you want. On the other hand, if you’re not an American citizen, the restrictions can be of different sources: simply not registering you, not being friendly towards you and making atmosphere around you when people do not talk to you,” Eskin said.
This video was uploaded to USA Really’s YouTube channel on Monday and is now unavailable as well.
Some other videos posted concerned the U.S. Deep State’s interference in the 2015 Israeli elections and censorship on Facebook.
USA Really’s YouTube channel had five subscribers and nine uploaded videos.
USA Really considers the termination of its Google and YouTube accounts as more clear evidence of the ongoing attack on free speech and honest independent media by a resentful and corrupt establishment.
