YouTube has blocked the PCh24 (Polonia Christiana) TV channel for a week for publishing a film about Bill Gates, the chief editor of the channel, Krystian Kratiuk, revealed in an interview with portal dorzeczy.pl.

YouTube has stopped any publication by the TV channel for one week and threatened to block the account entirely should it “re-offend” in the next three months. 

This is not the first such instance of censorship the channel has experienced. When PCh24 wanted to publish material for its film on the aims of the sexual revolution, a ban was imposed; but this time the channel has faced preventative censorship for a film that raises public domain information about Bill Gates, such as the fact that he had been promoting mass vaccination as if predicting pandemics.

Kratiuk called YouTube’s actions “total surveillance” since the film was stopped moments after it had reached the servers. He believes that there is probably some form of algorithm looking for content on channels that have subscription rates over a certain number — PCh24 has over 200,000 subscribers.

Kratiuk said this incident proves that conservative and right-wing media outlets are being targeted, and warned that we are heading in a dangerous direction. “All the visions and dreams of the communists that they couldn’t realize until now, can now be pursued with the assistance of big corporations, Big Tech, and Big Data money,” he said.

The chief editor sees this as being a move in the direction of monopolization and of being contrary to both Polish law and any kind of ethical norms. 

The PCh24 editor said that action should be taken by anti-monopoly offices in states all around the world; he concluded by calling on the Polish government to intervene in the matter, as “this is not the first censorship of this kind and it only applies to the same, right-wing side of the internet.”
