We have seen the future, and it sucks.

YouTuber Demonetized Hours after Rush Limbaugh Reads Her Article on His Show

7th October 2017

Read it.

Yesterday, October 5, after Rush read my article on his show, I made a video that included my reaction to him talking about it on the air. It wasn’t up for three hours before my videos started getting the dreaded yellow dollar signs — which means YouTube just took away my ability to be paid for them. YouTube made sure that whatever bump in subscribers or views I got from Rush would not benefit me in any way.

YouTube is owned by Google, whose motto is famously ‘Don’t Be Evil”.

But apparently not “Don’t Be Political”. If it doesn’t bother you that the people controlling our Internet infrastructure are rabid Social Justice Warriors, it ought to.
