The social media giants, so powerful now as to influence even the outcomes of national elections, are making sure only the right political opinions about ruthless communist regimes are not censored.The last time media censorship got to this point millions of people were soon to be rounded up, imprisoned and buried in mass, unmarked graves all across Eastern Europe.

Back in 2018, The Daily Caller broke the story that the notorious Left-wing hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), is "assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform."  According to the Caller, "the SPLC is one of the more than 100 NGOs and government agencies in YouTube's 'Trusted Flaggers' program." 

No surprise, then, that The Remnant has already been demonetized and shadow banned, and now this: YouTube slapped an age restriction (see screenshot below) on RTV’s most recent Sunday Sermon: CHINESE CATHOLICS BETRAYED: Diocesan Priest Stands with Viganò and Cardinal Zen

Why would a sermon which includes a trending topic (China and the coronavirus) and covers Archbishop Vigano’s latest letter, be deemed unsuitable for those under 18 (Father gave this sermon to his large congregation of all ages, by the way), unless YouTube is trying to tighten the noose around the neck of yet another conservative channel? 

What is YouTube so afraid of? The Chinese communists, as the sermon points out, are forcing abortions, arresting bishops and priests, terrorizing their own citizens. It’s all documented, photographic evidence that’s easy to find, so does YouTube not want us defending Chinese Catholics persecuted by an intolerant and bigoted regime? 

People are losing their jobs merely for expressing on Facebook dissenting opinions on "new and approved" notions of marriage. Mainstream conservative talking heads are not allowed to even question gay marriage anymore. The government is teaming up with new Gestapo agencies such as the SPLC to label as haters all those who deviate from politically correct ideology. And the social media giants, so powerful now as to influence even the outcomes of national elections, are making sure only the right political opinions about ruthless totalitarian regimes are not censored.

The last time media censorship got to this point millions of people were soon to be rounded up, imprisoned and buried in mass, unmarked graves all across Eastern Europe.

Remnant TV (TheRemnantVideo on YouTube) is growing closer every day to being kicked off Google’s massive streaming provider. However, we believe the Catholic cause is worth fighting for, and that video is a necessary medium to help spread the message. 

First off, I'm contesting this ridiculous "age restriction" flag with the YouTube team right now. Why? Because this is beyond stupid! 

In addition, we long ago anticipated the YouTube crackdown by building our own video hosting platform right here at RemnantNewspaper.com. We're revamping it right now by setting it up on remote servers around the country and in Europe to ensure quality playback. This is not cheap, but we hope to complete the project before we get thrown off YouTube entirely.

In the meantime, here's a simple 3-step process to help us fight back and to ensure RTV continues to thrive: 

  • Like and Share our videos on social media (This is absolutely essential!)
  • Subscribe to The Remnant E-letters. YouTube is already removing RTV notifications from our subscribers' lists. So, let us inform you when a new RTV video is posted. This is free, and it works!
  • Click the bell down and to the right of the Remnant homepage so that you can receive our push notifications whenever we post a video. Again, it costs you nothing, and it works! 

That’s it. Show them that despite their best totalitarian efforts, we won’t be silenced, we won't be intimidated and we certainly won't back down.

Let's start with this Sunday Sermon video; spread it as far as you can.
