You Tube Expands 9/11 Truth Purge

You Tube has permanently suspended
another major 9/11 truth account in a continuation of the purge that
began following efforts by the establishment to smear the 9/11 truth
movement as terrorist propaganda.
You Tube has previously been caught blocking 9/11 truth videos from entering into top ranking charts for both views and comments despite their enduring popularity.
It also has a record of wanton censorship in
deleting videos that are artistically crafted compilations and the
furthest possible thing from copyright violation, such as the
“Question Your Reality” video.
You Tube has now completely deleted
the “OneDeadDJ” user account, which was used to display
videos on Prison Planet.com, and in particular video clips relating to
the BBC reporting the collapse of Building 7 over 20 minutes in advance.
Upon attempting to login to the
account, one is met with the message, “Your account has been
permanently disabled”. No explanation as to why is given.
One of the videos deleted by You Tube, which features in the article “BBC Reported Building 7 Collapse 20 Minutes Before It Fell,” had over 1 million views and nearly 45,000 comments before it was pulled this week.
The same clip can still be found on
You Tube by using the search function, but the deletion of the original
means that the video will now be dead on thousands of websites and
blogs that picked it up when the story first broke.
When one attempts to play the clip,
is displayed. No doubt that the BBC has demanded You Tube remove the
video in an attempt to hide its embarrasment at the WTC 7 fiasco, which
it clumsily attempted to resolve by producing two seperate hit piece
documentaries against 9/11 truth.
The fact that the video is brief, is
implicitly newsworthy, and has been used for the purposes of an article
which is inherantly in the wider public interest, precludes any notion
of copyright violation. This is blatantly an example of “fair use”.
You Tube users started noticing an increase in account suspensions and videos being removed following a demand from Senator Joe Lieberman that You Tube remove all content deemed “terrorist propaganda”.
As we saw at a House Homeland Security Subcommittee hearing on “Terrorism and the Internet”
in November 2007, questioning the official 9/11 story behind 9/11 is
now being classified as aiding terrorist propaganda by some sectors of
During the hearing, representatives
formerly of the RAND Corporation and the Simon Wiesenthal Center showed
images of WTC 7 and a screenshot from the Architects and Engineers for
9/11 Truth site in an attempt to link 9/11 truth with violent jihadists.
Please take a moment to complain to
You Tube about the deletion of the “OneDeadDJ” user account and demand
it be reinstated. To make a complaint call +1 650-253-0000 (please be
