BIG H/T to David who posted this video in the comments on the Reporting Terrorism post.  I am reposting it as it’s own post, so it will appear on my page.

You can’t get any plainer than that.  YouTube is helping to raise funds for terrorist organizations through their YouTube Partners Program:

Thank you for your interest in the YouTube Partner Program. Applications are reviewed for a variety of criteria, including but not limited to the size of your audience, country of residence, quality of content, and consistency with our Community Guidelines and Terms of Use. Please note: if your application is not approved, you will not be able to apply to the program again for 2 months.

The YouTube Partner Program is intended for users who want to generate revenue from their existing audience. If you are more interested in increasing your audience, you may want to start with the YouTube Promoted Videos program first.

So let’s get this straight – this extremist’s views must be consistent with YouTube’s Community Guidelines and Terms of Use in order to be a partner.

Well, that certainly clears a lot up.

I guess that explains why at least two users have received strikes against their accounts for this DoD video which they uploaded to their channels .  The video shows  our U.S. military exercising restraint while watching a terrorist assemble an IED, only to see the terrorist blow himself to hell.

The user linked here was given a strike, but upon appeal it was removed and the video was reinstated.  No clue on why the other two users didn’t get their videos reinstated.  The same guy who approved the terrorist fundraiser as a YouTube partner must have reviewed their videos.

What is demonstrated is that YouTube would rather bend over backwards and kiss the backsides of terrorists and terrorist wannabes than to stand in solidarity with the coalition forces.  Thanks for the clarity, YouTube.  Not that we are surprised in the least.
