White Supremacist Hosts Admit Deplatforming Works And YouTube Radicalization Is Real – Angry White Men
During the December 18th episode of his annual “Millenniyule” series, white supremacist Colin “Millennial Woes” Robertson interviewed James Allsup. During the show Robertson admitted that when it comes to deplatforming far-right extremists, it’s an effective strategy — at least in the short-term.
Deplatforming is the process of banning certain speakers from social media platforms and payment processors such as Twitter, YouTube, Venmo, etc. in order to prevent their message from reaching a wider audience and choke off their finances.
Usually this is a matter of pressuring companies to enforce their stated terms of service, which traditionally ban hate speech and threats of violence.
