ATTN: Youtube User Jihad Jane

Buh bye.

Everyone wave bye now ;)

"Google's community guidelines for YouTube will now bar videos that incite violence, in addition to videos that contain hate speech and gratuitous violence," Sen. Joe Lieberman said in Washington on Thursday.

"YouTube was being used by Islamist terrorist organizations to recruit and train followers via the Internet and to incite terrorist attacks around the world, including right here in the United States, and Google should be commended for recognizing that," he said. "I expect these stronger community guidelines to decrease the number of videos on YouTube produced by Al Qaeda and affiliated Islamist terrorist organizations."
Sounds wonderful doesn't it? But....
At the time, Google said it had taken down about 80 clips that featured gratuitous violence and hate speech, but added that "there's nothing in our guidelines that says something produced by a certain group gets censored."
Which in real terms means that so long as al-Qaeda supporters are careful they can still spread their propaganda. This seems like a similar dance youtube played with Mr. Lieberman recently. Complaint followed by the minimum amount of action by Youtube. There are still plenty of clips out there produced by specially designated terrorist entities in support of al-Qaeda and Jihad.

But in the last few days it seems Youtube has removed some of the most flagrant and famous pro al-Qaeda videos and accounts. Removing Jihad Jane is high profile. But Jane never uploaded any videos. She just favorited them. So removing her actually hurts a bit, she was good source for finding the users uploading the propaganda.

So lets test out Youtube's resolve on this issue.

Starting out with suspended user ouillish who opened a new account here..
and says via email by Andrea.
My youtube account is listed under the name Ouillish and I found this page via a google search.

I just wanted to state that flagging a few videos is not going to stop them from ending up on youtube.

It amazes me that videos showing illegal US aggression are considered fine, while posting material advocating lawful self-defense gets people all worked up.

Do as you will, it makes no difference to me. I will post more videos under different account names if need be. I support the Islamic Army in Iraqi, Ansar al-Sunnah, Hamas, and a whole lot of other people you don't like too much.

He lists three terrorist organizations he wishes to support on a US company's servers. Hamas is designated a terrorist organization by the US dept of state. He intends to use Youtube to support them, by law he should be suspended from using a US based platform to do so.

Moving on. One of our smackdown partners keeps a playlist of current terrorist propaganda here. A couple contain very graphic violence, including be-headings.

(note the first set of vids at the link are al-Qaeda training videos, just the type Youtube said it would remove)

You can also flag the videos or use the form below to enter specific info about a video. For instance at this one you can say something like ,"At 1:12 terrorist chops off head." Or show the time of a call to violence, etc etc. Should be most helpful to JihadTube Youtube in their efforts, no?

Super duper complaint link here. Then click how to flag abusive vids, then click contact us, Should bring up form.

Hat Tip: Al


Update II: Suspended!

Update III: One down, not come on Jawas, lets go. The more who participate the more effective we are.

Thought we'd let that pass did you? Persistent little cusses aren't we?

One Party's Trash is Another Party's Treasure

Crossposted from Stop the ACLU:

My co-blogger Roger wrote about this on the September 1st, and yes the entire Democratic party should be ashamed. Of course, they aren't. So, why wouldn't people question your patriotism when you treat the flag like this?

This morning, Republicans tell me that a worker at Invesco Field in Denver saved thousands of unused flags from the Democratic National Convention that were headed for the garbage. Guerrilla campaigning. They will use these flags at their own event today in Colorado Springs with John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Before McCain speaks today, veterans will haul these garbage bags filled with flags out onto the stage -- with dramatic effect, no doubt -- and tell the story.

"What you see in the picture I sent you is less than half of total flags," a Republican official emailed. "We estimate the total number to be around 12,000 small flags and one full size 3×5 flag."

I'm not sure what the DNC was supposed to do with unused hand-flags, frankly. But the Republicans are obviously questioning someone's patriotism here.

Yet the story has a happy ending. One party's trash is another party's treasure! Country first indeed!

The flags are on their way to a McCain Palin rally in Colorado Springs where the Boy Scouts and Veterans of Foreign Wars will distribute them to the GOP faithful.


Boy Scouts have arrived with 84 trash bags full of bundles of flags at the site of a McCain rally scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. local time in Colorado Springs.

The campaign says the flags were recovered from Invesco Field after the Democrats concluded their convention there, and they are going to be used as part of the warm-up ceremonies before McCain takes the stage for the rally.

FOX News has been told a vendor at Invesco Field found the flags, which were going to be thrown out, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.

Veterans in Colorado Springs are expected to distribute the flags to the audience at the rally.

Obama has faced questions about his patriotism since the beginning of the Democratic primary, and has set up a Web site specifically designed to fight such charges.

Ed Morrissey:

Didn't anyone make arrangements for better disposal of these flags from Invesco? At the very least, they were an investment that could have been re-used at rallies in Colorado as well as the rest of the nation during the general election. Instead, they've handed a dramatic moment to John McCain and Sarah Palin, as well as relieved them of the cost of 12,000 such flags -- as well as a full 3?x5? flag that also wound up in the trash.

Remember when the DNCC was supposed to be the "greenest convention ever"? How they worried about the color of the food and using organic materials in their merchandise? I guess we can see where the "green" concern ends ... at red, white, and blue.

By the way, just so you is the proper way to dispose of the American flag.

Drew M.

Now they'll whine about how it wasn't their fault and it's not like Obama was personally tossing flags in the trash and in some sense that's true. But appearances matter and this just feeds into the perception that patriotism as most Americans understand it (something other than endless criticism of the country) is simply a card Democrats play at election time.

I wonder why anyone would get that idea?
