Fire Susan Wojcicki as YouTube CEO

Since February 2014, Susan Wojcicki became Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of YouTube, which is part of Google. Under her leadership things started to went downhill and caused the reputation of YouTube and Google from the copyright controversy to the 2016 controversial YouTube PR Nightmare known as The Ad-Friendly Monetization Policy which was severely criticized by various YouTubers that the new rules censors and silenced YouTubers' freedom of speech and their platforms by demonetizing YouTube videos that deals with controversial subjects (like tragedies, natural disasters, politics, health, and etc.) and YouTubers loved Freedom Of Speech, but the new Ad-Friendly Monetization rules are still a dire form of Censorship by TPTB at Google and YouTube. The current Ad-Friendly Monetization Policy is still unfair to YouTubers. We also want that policy abolished or changed for the better. The controversial Ad-Friendly Policy at YouTube is one of the few reasons YouTube went downhill and turn for the worse and into the wrong direction. The PR Nightmare has to be fixed, make YouTube and Google go into the right direction by having common sense rules like No Tolerance Policy on YouTube Trolls, False Flagging, and censoring music just like Internet Vigilantes like UMG_MK trying to do a witch hunt on removing YouTube videos of songs by The Beatles. We want YouTube and Google go into the right direction and fire YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and Make YouTube Great Again!

Petition to Donald Trump

Stop Facebook from ShadowBanning Opposing Opinions

Facebook is covertly flagging and effectively censoring people who actively oppose mainstream media's viewpoint on various social topics. They are doing this to manipulate the world's perception of these topics by limiting people's exposure to alternate opinions. This is a very powerful and dangerous ability that can easily sway public opinion one way or another to accomplish their agenda and control the people. We cannot allow them to continue doing this or they will use manipulation of what is seen on Facebook to alter the perception ("reality") of millions of people. This dangerous abuse of power by a social media giant gives them the ability to spawn massive mobs of people almost overnight, or completely extinguish the voice of millions... All without Facebook staff posting a single word or anyone even realizing that it's happening. We have coined the term ShadowBanning to represent the covert censorship of millions of people. Examples of ShadowBanning includes, but is not limited to: * severely delaying the display of posts or comments that are flagged as opposition to their agenda so that all initial exposure on a post is only that of what they support; * disappearing comments and likes; * banning, suspending, or limiting people's ability to use their Facebook account, for no reason or for questionable reasons, and with no opportunity to challenge the decision; filtering posts out of your news feed so you see everything your friends and pages post except for specific social topics that you are known to oppose and which conflicts with Facebook executive opinions. The list goes on and on. We currently have 31,000+ members in our ShadowBanning group and growing by thousands every couple days as more and more people begin to realize what is happening to them and we all have irrefutable proof. It has been extremely difficult to get the word out, as Facebook has begun flagging actual accounts instead of just key statements in posts, and so effectively that account is invisible to majority of people unless they are direct friends. If we don't stop this it will most definitely have a terribly negative effect on the United States and even the world. This is communist type censorship, plain and simple. We need your help before it's too late. Facebook may be censoring your opinion without your knowledge. Get the facts and investigate it with your own posts and comments and you'll see without a doubt that this is very real. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1836989403277764/

Petition to Dr. Bob Kustra, Matt Freeman

Keep Diversity within the University! Keep Dr. Scott Yenor!

The American Constitution guarantees free speech as a First Amendment right. Universities in the U.S. are supposed to be bastions of freedom of thought and speech. Ideas are *ideally* the currency of campus exchange. Sadly, leftist campus "groupthink" today is now silencing any and all opponents. Boise State University may witness a new casualty-to-be. Dr. Scott Yenor expresses well-researched, thoughtful opinions in written pieces about feminism and transgender thought. His opinions are not in-line with leftist ideology. Here is one specific article he penned which sparked a lot of controversy, titled "Transgender Activists Are Seeking to Undermine Parental Rights": https://sps.boisestate.edu/politicalscience/2017/08/08/scott-yenor-3/ Across campus on September 6th, 2017, a widely disseminated flyer claimed that Yenor has blood on his hands and should be fired. Online, people are petitioning to fire him as well. The situation is intense and illogical. If people really disagree with him, why do they not simply engage in scholarly dialogue with him? Why do they not write their own articles, or engage him in civil debate? Why is their reaction to his opinion to simply fire him? Why are they so afraid of his ideas and beliefs that they literally have to eliminate him to neutralize him? Are we so backwards and afraid nowadays? People who feel firm and confident in their position on an issue generally do not have to fire others to win a debate. Firing someone because you cannot intellectually engage with them is similar to burning censored books. Please support Dr. Scott Yenor! If we fire every faculty member who dissents from a portion of student opinion, then universities will be boring and coercive. Young minds will not be challenged and stretched. Instead, minds will be conformed into a monotone, homogeneous norm. We need to support diversity within faculty. Dr. Scott Yenor is a highly qualified professor who needs to stay at Boise State. Regardless of political affiliation or personal beliefs, let us all calmly and reasonably unite in our collective American ideal (and guaranteed right!) of free speech. Let us reject hateful polemics against a qualified professor. Let us petition Dr. Bob Kustra, the president of Boise State University, and Mr. Matt Freeman, the Executive Director of the Idaho State Board of Education, to keep Dr. Yenor at Boise State. This petition was written and created by an undergraduate student at Boise State University. The author can be contacted for access to the sources which are the basis of the claims she made above. For example, the author has access to a photo of the flyer disseminated across campus which called for Dr. Yenor's termination, the link to the petition calling for Yenor's termination, and the links to three different websites affirming that Yenor's article mentioned above (titled "Transgender Activists Are Seeking to Undermine Parental Rights") was specifically one article that sparked a lot of controversy. Please contact the author with any questions at FreeSpeechIsDiversity@outlook.com. Thank you very much for your concern in this matter.
