YouTube censored an episode of Louder with Crowder and suspended the channel for a week after a show featuring Infowars host Alex Jones allegedly violated the company’s “hate speech policy.”
A message from a YouTube representative addressed to Crowder’s half-Asian lawyer Bill Richmond Wednesday notified the team their episode titled, “Special Guest ALEX JONES on ‘Great Reset’ & Joe Rogan TRIGGERS Leftists AGAIN!” was offensive to the gay community and constituted an actionable offense.
“YouTube has repeatedly instructed Mr. Crowder regarding its hate speech policy and warned him against continuing violations of that policy through content he uploaded to YouTube,” the message states.
“The video…contains a segment that targets the transgender community in an offensive manner, for example, by indicating that trans people pose a rape threat to women.”
In a rebuttal responding to the censorship, Crowder noted the episode “covered SPECIFIC, documented instances of rape.”
“A hard strike from YouTube and Wow… this is terrifying. We covered SPECIFIC, documented instances of rape. @YouTube says not allowed. All parents should take note. If you believe in the insane notion of biological sex, you will be silenced.”
“In the video, which can still be viewed on Rumble, Crowder and others on the show discussed the claim from the Women’s Liberation Front that at least one woman at a woman’s prison had become pregnant after being housed with a male,” reported The Blaze.
The segment in question begins around 19:46.
During the segment, Crowder segues to a comedy skit where Alex Jones appears as an angel and delivers a message to an incarcerated female telling her she’ll soon be impregnated by her cellmate, who’s a transgender female, via rape.
“Do not be afraid,” Jones tells the jailed woman, “for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people for there is born to you a baby in this cell and this shall be a sign unto you of…”
“A virgin birth? A miracle?” the imprisoned woman asks.
“Ha, no,” Jones responds, adding, “Your cellmate, that guy dressed as a woman, he’s going to rape you…repeatedly.”
YouTube’s takedown coincides with a case out of Loudon County, Virginia, first reported by the Daily Wire, where a father was arrested for speaking out at a school boarding meeting after his 9th-grade daughter was molested in a school bathroom by a male-to-female transgender student wearing a skirt back in May.
Crowder says he plans to legally fight back against the strike.
