Teachers trying to educate about fascism hit by service’s new policy removing clips glorifying Nazis.

YouTube has blocked some British history teachers from its service for uploading archive material related to Adolf Hitler, saying they are breaching new guidelines banning the promotion of hate speech.

The video-sharing website announced on Wednesday that it would remove material glorifying the Nazis from its platform in an attempt to stop people being radicalised. In the process however, it also deleted videos uploaded to help educate future generations about the risks of fascism.

Scott Allsopp, who owns the longrunning MrAllsoppHistory revision website and teaches at an international school in Romania, had his channel featuring hundreds of historical clips on topics ranging from the Norman conquest to the cold war deleted for breaching the rules that ban hate speech.

What a stupid move. That was a real trove of historical evidence, it should be preserved.

I would guess it stemmed from the blocking of other hate speech on YouTube, but I don't actually know.

So ben, have you had a look? It seems Crowder has certainly gone after Carlos Maza, and in my view been very homophobic, but because of the fallout of this. Now its come stupid, as seen above.

For people unaware of this, they can read the following

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-48525698
https://eu.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2019/06/05/vox-carlos-maza-speaks-after-steven-crowder-youtube-attacks/1351529001/

This is what has caused youtube to now go over the top. When what should have happened is the individuals involved be taken to task. Not then censur any historic videos and then claim they glorify hitler, based off other unrelated issues around homophobia to a vox journalist

Didn't really get a chance to look into it much, but I'll take a look at your link -- thanks for sharing that.
