Now Condell video is banned from YouTube
Just as you think YouTube have seen the free-speech light (having reinstated the wafer-desecration vids), along comes another terrible tale of censorship by Google’s video-sharing giant.
YouTube’s most subscribed comedian, Pat Condell, has had his latest video, “Welcome to Saudi Britain”, removed. He was also threatened with having his account suspended.
The video called for viewers to sign an online petition against sharia law in the UK. As you can see (for now – there’s no guarantee that it will stay up for very long), Condell does not incite hatred or discrimination. But he does have a go at Saudi Arabia and its brand of Islam.
Nothing wrong with that.
If you have a YouTube account, you can upload the video to your channel (download it here).
Oh, and here’s that petition again.
