Archive for March, 2010
Well, yesterday, yet another YouTuber was arrested. This time is was Norman Leboon, Sr. for threatening to kill Eric Cantor, the Virginia Congressman.
From the Philadelpia Inquirer…
Norman Leboon, 38, of the 1600 block of Benner Street in Mayfair, was charged by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia with two counts involving threats against U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor, the Republican House whip.
Leboon was arrested Saturday by the FBI, three days after his YouTube video was seen by someone in San Francisco and reported to the FBI.
Well how about that? Someone posted threats on YouTube? Say it isn’t so! The funny (or not so funny) thing is that it’s just possible that the FBI ignored Leboon’s brother’s reporting on his brother because, well, threats are nothing new at YouTube. They are everywhere.
YouTuber AllahAkChew had a threat posted on her channel just today by user MujahidAK74U . Even the user names are threatening — take killkuffs for example. It doesn’t take a lot of cognitive ability to realize that “killkuffs” means kill kafir — kafir being the term that muslims use for non-believers. Then there are all the terrorist avatars that YouTube ignores. If you think I’m kidding, just go look through the avatars on IslamicRevolutionTV’s subscribers page. Here are a few samples:
And then there are the backgrounds that people put on their channels, which are a whole other story. The point is, YouTube turns a blind eye every day to the hatred and violence and threats and thereby hosts a culture of threats and violence.
And if a user is suspended, they just come back under a new user ID like Colleen LaRose did, while again, YouTube turns a blind eye. Their policies state that you are not allowed to make a new ID when you are suspended, but it’s up to the community to bring it to YouTube’s attention. I can understand that they have so much video uploaded every day, yada, yada, yada. Just because something is difficult to do, you are not absolved of your responsibilities. (“Yeah, Mr. IRS man, those tax forms are just too difficult…” Wonder how that’d work out…! )
How many true believer whackjobs like Colleen LaRose, Normal Leboon or Nidal Hassan is it going to take for YouTube to own their responsibility? Yeah — it’s rhetorical. The answer is, most likely never.
A friend has come up with another way to hold Google/YouTube’s feet to the fire though, and it is ingenious. Google and YouTube have advertisers. I doubt those advertisers would be happy to see their ads on pages that advocate things like killing U.S. Congressmen or wiping out the Jews. Maybe a hit in the pocketbook is the cattleprod we need to wake up Google/YouTube.
All hands on deck – let’s roll!
Related Jawas post – heh!
Flagged this jerk this morning along with other folks from the Jihadi Smackdown of the Day we took this sucker OUT! Thank you YouTube for dumping this trash!
3,010 videos of radical islamic propaganda cleaned off the YouTube servers. A step in the right direction! I wonder how long it takes to upload 3010 videos? LOL!
A little celebration music:
Join us! The more the merrier.
These guys ROCK!
Updated — check out THIS version of OPEN SEASON! Whoa!
Hat Tip to RW — thanks!
So YouTube definitely has issues. A friend put together this funny video – a Nasheed actually – which is nothing more than an Islamic song. But see, the muslims like their Nasheeds to praise things like, oh, Mujahideen, Taliban, other violent stuff like that. My friend wanted to praise boobies! All hail boobies! The funny thing is, the original video is on YouTube here, but when my friend added a terrorist flag at the beginning (which he borrowed from other videos at YouTube) and and called it a Nasheed, it got taken down by YouTube. And lest you think that it was the terrorist flag that did it, there are literally hundreds upon hundreds of videos with terrorist flags and they don’t get taken down. So here’s the offending video, hosted at another site, complete with terrorist flags.
So what can we take away from this?
Does a terrorist flag or logo get a video removed from YouTube? No.
Do boobies get a video removed from YouTube? No.
Does poking fun at terrorists get your video removed from YouTube? Absolutely.
Hey YouTube – we know what side you’re on. Traitors.
Addendum: Just to belabor the point a little, the video removed from YouTube was not used to poke fun at muslims. It was poking fun at terrorists. Peace-loving muslims would not be watching a video with a terrorist flag/logo on it, therefore peace-loving muslims would not be offended by it. The people who would be offended by this juxtaposition of images are TERRORISTS and TERRORIST SYMPATHIZERS.
Ok – that sounds really, well, mean. But here’s what I’m talking about. What is it about both groups that want to be in your face? I have personal beliefs about homosexuality that don’t really play into by beliefs about the way obnoxious gay activist types who just really want you to see what they’re all about behave. Case in point, the ones who walk around looking like this because somehow they think the rest of us need to see it:
Sorry, but my first thought is “attention whore!” And that’s the same response I had today, when I read the comments on a post at Jawas… The post is about a Marine wife blogger whose husband was just killed in Afghanistan (may he rest in peace.) The proper response should be “I am so sorry for your loss” or something to that effect. But in the comments, the attention whore known as Censored31 posted this:
Yep. That’s an attention whore for you. Thankfully another poster had a much more well-reasoned response than I did…
Right on jaya. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that we should feel sorry for these guys — the ones who really will spend eternity in hell fire. On the other hand, I sort of agree with the Marines….
I thought I’d post another “connect the dots” piece — YouTube IS the #1 hosting service for terrorist and terrorist sympathizing websites. A quick perusal of various sites shows that most videos that are embedded on their sites are hosted at YouTube, with a smattering of LiveLeak and a few others.
Here’s an example of a YouTube video being embedded at several terrorist sites. I started here:
I’ll save you from having to watch the whole thing — it’s loaded with
emotionally charged images, interspersed with a script that goes thru 20th century history (not sure of the veracity of all of the claims – a better historian than I might note bias – and then basically says that the khalifah and shariah will cure all the ills of society (including, of course, pedophilia – yeah, I am rolling my eyes as I type.) It then encourages muslims to bring about this Islamic state so that it can be implemented throughout the whole world. Here’s a definition for you of Khalifah:
the civil and religious leader of a Muslim state considered to be a representative of Allah on earth; “many radical Muslims believe a Khalifah will unite all Islamic lands and people and subjugate the rest of the world”
So even though this video, on it’s face, does not seem particularly violent or shocking, it is calling for Muslims to attempt to bring about this forced Islamic rule. It uses the images and history “lesson” to stir up the emotions of the easily led – think Nidal Hassan or Colleen LaRose – and motivate them to action. Propaganda for sure! So where is this video being used? Well let’s just check that out…
Here it is at
At ismaweb.net – a Malay Islamic forum:
Ahh! And our old “friend”
This is surrounded by articles that show sympathy for Colleen LaRose (JihadJane), exultation over the death of Mohammad Al-Muhajiri as being a “success” as a martyr and others.
And here we have the video at the “we share a dream” blog…
I don’t have a translator for that language, but in case you’re not sure
what the blog supports, they have this a little farther down the page for
So how long is YouTube going to continue as a tool for the terrorists?
That’s a question that remains to be seen. The problem is that
videos like the one featured here appear, at first glance, to be simply a
history lesson. You have to pay attention to realize that that “history
lesson” is being used to incite violent jihad. The key is the context.
And the context doesn’t lie at YouTube, it lies in the environment where the video is embedded. It takes work to look this up, but anyone can do it. I would urge any of you out there to see what you can discover – I think you’d be surprised how easy it is to find. And then send your detailed complaints to YouTube via their flagging tool on each video you find linked in terrorist forums. It’s a target-rich environment, and we can use all the help we can get!
