YouTube channel operated by man-on-the-street-maestro Mark Dice deleted.
Mark Dice has put up some of the most gobsmacking videos on YouTube. They’re not profane, nasty or anything that would win you an “R” rating, but they are provocative.
Dice does the hard political analog of the old Jay Leno stand by, “Jay Walking” or Jimmy Kimmel’s “Lie Witness News.” I’ve used some of his videos on the air to show how incredibly stupid and gullible voters can be. His man on the street interviews at the Oceanside Pier are cringe inducing for how dumb people can be.
Dice also has an Alex Jones/9-11 inside job/Illuminati/Trilateral Commission bent which I find off putting, but so what? You can view any number of actually destructive things put on Google’s YouTube, why would Mark Dice be targeted?
The San Diego area agent provocateur says he has a spectacularly successful website with as many as 60 million views of his videos. So why would YouTube cancel his account?
Dice has issued a statement a statement on his back up YouTube Channel called The Resistance (see his video below). I’ve excerpted most of it here.
Hey everyone, it’s me Mark Dice, this is my back up YouTube Channel. As you probably heard, my primary channel, YouTube.com/MarkDice has been shut down due to what YouTube said were just severe violations of our ‘community guidelines’ even though the channel was getting three million views a month consistently for well over a year, 60 million views accumulative, 265,000 subscribers, 800 and some videos–just deleted, just gone you know, so… Some of those videos are on this channel. Always take precautions, always have a plan B and that’s why this channel has remained my original YouTube channel I started in 2006. And when I started to see the potential of YouTube censorship, I just sort of left it idle and was just primarily using my main channel so…
I really appreciate everyone getting the word out. I woke up this morning to tons of emails, tweets, and facebook posts about the channel being gone, so I really appreciate that.
I would sue them for breach of contract except they put in their terms of service that everybody agrees to when you open an account, they can literally delete your channel for any reason. Just any reason ‘we see fit we can, you know, remove your channel. I mean, that’s literally in the text.
So that would be like your boss saying, ‘Well, you can come and work for us but for you any reason I can just fire you. Even though it’s violating the bill of rights…so this is a major free speech issue. That’s why I never use profanity. I never used ‘hate speech.’ I never called for violence, I never would.
But, ah, you know what? I was just getting too popular. Just getting too big. You know there’s an old proverb, I think an old Chinese proverb, that says, ‘The nail that stands up will get pounded down,’ and so um, we’ll see what happens from this point on. But…if you want to support me go get my books. They’re not in stores, they’re on Amazon.com or paperback or any E reading devices until they just pull them from there too. If you want to pay pal some stuff to me you can do it on Mark@MarkDice.com.
…Till further notice, just check out this channel I try to post videos on this one. I’ve gotta lot of stuff in the works that I’ve been working on.
I expected that this would happen at some point in time, particularly because I was growing so fast. And I’ll tell you the secret of my success: I just started to obsessively, compulsively posting videos every single day.
The trolls will flag videos and try to shut em down as well which has happened just numerous times, but I would always file a counter claim and get em restored.
With God for me who dare can be against me. If you know anyone at YouTube please email me their names.
