A story came across my virtual desk last night that seemed relatively innocuous. The author who sent it to me must have felt the same because the story was very short. Nevertheless, I watched the video referenced in the article and realized the story was much more important than I originally thought.
A popular chess podcast with nearly 700,000 subscribers on YouTube called “agadmator’s Chess Channel” posted a video telling of how during a livestreamed podcast, his video was removed by YouTube for breaking community guidelines. The communication they sent him said he had seven days to review the video and decide if he wanted to appeal the decision. He didn’t need seven days as he knew he hadn’t said anything that went against the guidelines. He said he doesn’t even swear on his podcast, let alone say anything that YouTube should deem illegal, so he instantly sent in his appeal. The response from YouTube was instant as well: Appeal rejected over “Harmful or dangerous content.”
Again, this is a chess podcast that analyzes games. He had no idea what in the world he could have said that would have driven such a response, but he knew for certain based on the speed of the reply that it was not reviewed by a human. AI was behind his video being taken down and his appeal being denied.
It seems clear to me, as I noted in the latest episode of Conservative News Briefs, that the AI flagged some supposedly racist remark like “white knight takes black pawn” and assumed it was against Black Lives Matter or something. And while that may seem like a minor technology flaw, it exposes the reality we face in America today, that as long as we rely on Google, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter as our primary Big Tech companies through which to spread the message, that message will always be a potential victim to some skewed AI. Racial justice technology is on the rise, folks.
Of course, I’m also a hypocrite. I use YouTube because the competitors don’t have the same reach. I have a Parler account, but I’m still on Twitter as well. I don’t do much on Facebook and I’m no seeking an alternative. As for Google, I’ve been on DuckDuckGo for a while.
Big Tech is the biggest long-term threat to patriotism, conservatism, and common sense. The Cultural Marxists are popping up in every aspect of American life. We need to try harder. We need to fight smarter.
Check out the NEW NOQ Report Podcast.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
Gifts for Patriots: Forget All the Woke Corporate Retail Gifts This Year
Let me put the disclaimer up front. I’m a patriot. This site believes in promoting patriotic companies, supporting America-First ideas, and disseminating the truthful news that everyone in this nation needs to read or hear. To that end, it makes sense that the companies we allow to sponsor us are patriotic, America-First, and truth-embracing organizations.
Now for the other disclaimer. Buying from the three companies listed below using our promo codes helps us tremendously. The offers we give our readers access to are the best offers available; even using Mike Lindell’s promo code gives the same discount as using promo code “NOQ.”
We know there are many conservative sites who offer similar or even identical promos. We are not the biggest, not by a longshot, but we try very hard to provide excellent coverage of the most important topics to patriots. We do it unflinchingly and often at great sacrifice; there’s a reason you won’t find Google ads or Facebook buttons on our site. We cannot rail against Big Tech if we’re taking money from them or promoting their products. I’m not going to throw stones at other conservative news outlets who are beholden to Google or Facebook. We have our own sins. Nevertheless, you know when you use our promo codes you’re making an impact by supporting an honest style of delivering America-First news and commentary.
With that said, our sponsors have gifts available for all price ranges.
For the very special someone needing a very special gift, contact Our Gold Guy. Imagine their surprise when they see silver or gold coins in their stocking! Or, you can treat yourself to the ultimate hedge in the Biden economy. As the supply chain crumbles, inflation skyrockets, and the other investments lose momentum, precious metals make for the perfect protection. Be sure to tell them JD Rucker sent you!
At $499, the Freedom Phone will help you or someone you love break free from the Apple/Google duopoly in the smartphone world. With promo code “MAGA,” you’ll save $50. It’s well worth the peace of mind of having a completely uncensored device with an app store that cannot be canceled.
Our good friends at MyPillow have gifts ranging from stocking stuffers to high end bedding. You can knock out a lot of Christmas shopping with one stop at their website, and you’ll get maximum savings on each product you order by using promo code “NOQ.”
Lastly, if you’d like to include us on your Christmas list, we’d LOVE if you sponsored us. Donations go directly towards helping us disseminate important articles and podcasts to the nation.
As patriots, we must stand up for what we believe in. That means we slow or completely eliminate our expenditures with companies who hate us for our ideology. Our sponsors are all proud to support the America-First agenda, which is why we allow them on our pages. Like I said, you won’t find Google ads here.
