As you may know, our Community Guidelines describe which content we allow – and don’t allow – on YouTube. Your video “Sink The Ships” was flagged for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it violates our guidelines. We’ve removed it from YouTube and assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty, to your account.
Video content restrictions
We encourage free speech and defend everyone’s right to express their points of view, even if unpopular. However, YouTube doesn’t allow hate speech. Sometimes there’s a fine line between what is and isn’t considered hate speech. If you’re not sure whether or not your content crosses the line, we ask that you don’t post it. Learn more here.
The impact of strikes
This is the first strike applied to your account. We understand that users seldom intend to violate our policies. That’s why strikes don’t last forever – this strike will expire in three months. However, it’s important to remember that additional strikes could prevent you from posting content to YouTube or even lead to your account being terminated.
How you can respond
If you believe this was a mistake, we’d like to hear from you. Please follow both of these steps as simply deleting the video won’t resolve the strike on your account.
– The next time you sign in you will be asked to acknowledge this strike on your account.
– If you would like to appeal this strike, please submit this form. Our team will thoroughly review your appeal and will contact you again very soon.

I appealed the strike and pointed out that history is not “hate speech”, that advocating the defense of national borders is not “hate speech”, and that endorsing military action is not “hate speech”. But this is yet another reminder of how it is vital to build our own platforms and utilize non-converged platforms like BitChute.
If YouTube does not remove the strike, I will investigate switching my Darkstream channel chat over to Stream.Me in the place of the YouTube chat until the strike expires. This action is further evidence, as if any was needed, that SJWs will attempt to eliminate history that contradicts the current narrative.
UPDATE: Upon further review, YouTube has decided that history is hate speech.
Thank you for submitting your video appeal to YouTube.
After further review of the content, we’ve determined that your video does violate our Community Guidelines and have upheld our original decision. We appreciate your understanding.

I’m sure you’re just as shocked as I am.
