Indy had to post the following video to strike back at the YouTube politbureau shutting down advertising money. I've seen this happen before, but usually with obvious political commentators.
While I emphatically support free speech and would hope that Tech Giants do so as well, I can at least see why some idiot Communist or neo-Nazi gets their YouTube channel demonetized (although I can't think of any lefty channels who have been demonetized). Indy Neidell's WWII channel is hardly controversial, and Indy's explanation of YouTube's justification is pretty weak: they don't want people advertising on channels that talk about war?
Indy's video points out the massive exercise in stupidity YouTube is engaged in: Apparently, educational history channels on YouTube are demonetized, but stupid cat videos aren't?
