YouTube has been accused of censoring a movie attacking US President Barack Obama, in a move the maker is calling illegal.
The movie “The Obama Deception” claims (among other things) that “the Obama phenomenon is a hoax carefully crafted by the captains of the New World Order” and that Obama is “being pushed as savior in an attempt to con the American people into accepting global slavery.”
According to reports, the video had recently “gone viral” and was gaining some media attention before YouTube deleted it.
“This was a criminal act, and You Tube needs to investigate, track the IP and find out who did it,” said filmmaker Alex Jones. “The Obama Deception was getting more and more popular, and the establishment doesn’t like the fact that it exposes the Left-Right paradigm and identifies Obama as a puppet.”
“Obama Deception Censored” is at the time of writing the most popular search term on Google, hinting that there may be some interest in the censorship story.
However, we’d suggest the story needs a pinch of salt: this is a YouTube conspiracy theory coming from a guy who makes movies about conspiracy theories. There’s some claims online that the interest in the movie came about due to a dubious SEO campaign, so YouTube may well be in its rights to pull it and there’s no censorship at play.
