Polish Government’s Video on Migration Policy Sent to YouTube Jail

Like Hungary, Poland has staunchly opposed the EU mandatory quota for resettling refugees. The Polish government recently created a brief video spot on the topic, explaining Polish policy and pointing out that some EU leaders have admitted that the mandatory resettlement scheme couldn’t possibly work — that is, that the Poles had been right all along.

When the Polish government put the video on YouTube, Google responded by consigning it to “YouTube Jail” — a relatively new condition that prevents the video from being embedded or listed for public view, and withholds all statistics on views from the channel’s owner. YouTube Jail imposes as many restrictions as can be imposed on a video without actually taking it down.

Vlad has uploaded a subtitled version of the Polish video that is still embeddable (so far). If YouTube eventually sends it to the video slammer, there’s also a BitChute version, which won’t be taken down and is embeddable.

Many thanks to the Polish government for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below are some excerpts from a Breitbart article on the topic:

Goolag Archipelago: Google Sends Powerful Migrant Crisis Video by POLISH GOVERNMENT to ‘YouTube Jail’

YouTube has ‘quarantined’ a hard-hitting video on Europe’s migrant crisis released by Poland’s conservative government, as part the platform’s crackdown on “hate speech and violent extremism”.
The Polish Ministry of Interior and Administration’s video has been placed in a controversial state designed by YouTube to limit access to videos it says contain “supremacist” or “extremist” content, but which don’t break any of the platform’s rules.

Opening with dramatic scenes of migrants swarming into Europe, the video highlights EU leaders’ insistence that the newcomers be spread throughout the continent, and forced even on unwilling nations through compulsory quotas.

But YouTube has now placed the powerful video in “limited state” — a condition designed to severely reduce the potential audience for “borderline” content. Videos placed under this system are unsearchable, impossible to embed on other sites, and removed from users’ recommended videos lists.

The only way to reach ‘quarantined’ content is by clicking a direct link to the video in question, at which point viewers are warned that the “content is inappropriate or offensive”, asking them to click a button before they are allowed to proceed.

YouTube has also shut down comments on videos which have been placed in this “limited state”, and removed view counts and up-votes and down-votes, making it impossible to see the reach of the video, or know how it has been received.

00:33   Mariusz Błaszczak: It wasn’t like that before – the solidarity of the Visegrad Group was shattered by the PO-PSL coalition government.
00:40   We were the first to say that not every immigrant is a refugee, and only a few are fleeing from war and terror. Our predictions have come true.

02:08   Angela Merkel: If I could go back in time, I would better prepare myself for this crisis.
02:12   EU leaders are beginning to understand the absurd policy of forced relocation of refugees.
02:17   They are beginning to appreciate how important it is to protect the external borders of the European Union and the security of its own citizens, who feel increasingly threatened.

  1. Go Poland protect Your values and culture, don’t let this EU . Mafia bullying You with this criminals, those NOT refugees, those mostly asylum shoppers, economic illegal migrants who are looking for easy life , living from taxpayers money, prostitution and selling drugs, like all over Getmany and Europe, absolutely disgusting..

  2. If you look at the actual transcript, it is the most vanilla possible from the point of view of an immigration patriot of any country. They talk about stopping the immigration, and how there are terrorists among the immigrants. It actually says almost nothing about the immigrants themselves.

    So in effect, a political discussion opposing immigration is defined by YouTube as hate speech.

    If YouTube weren’t free, I’d end my subscription.

    I find a lot of YouTube’s videos to be extremely helpful and informative, particularly by Stefan Molyneux. And these are not blood-and-gut videos either. I expect Molyneux, Laura Southern, Ramzpaul, American Renaissance and others to be eventually consigned to YouTube jail or possibly solitary confinement. I am a contributing Patreon member of Ramzpaul, hoping that we will get an alternative to YouTube allowing broad discussion of different ideas, even at the cost of a subscription.

    Google, which bought YouTube, has a project to digitize virtually (so to speak) all out-of-copyright books so as to preserve their heritage. YouTube had a chance to store virtually all the ideas in our civilization, but seems to have blown it for a fleeting political correctness and a little pat on the head from the likes of Merkel, Macron, and Trudeau. Google’s owner is one of the wealthiest men on Earth, but I guess the game of money-making has become an addiction to him, and his thorough master. Perhaps we should take a lesson from the Saudis and turn these guys upside down with a meathook until the money falls out of their pockets. I don’t believe that money should be redistributed from a matter of right, but these guys are simply so harmful and malevolent that their money couldn’t be in a worse place, even in the hands of seat-warmer government bureaucrats.

  3. How to start the legal process, similar to the one against the Bell company, for monopoly? Goggle should be broke down the same way.

  4. The Visegrad 4 have all done exceptionally well out the EU.

    So much so they would rather try and reform or fight Brussels, than leave, as the UK is attempting to do.
    But I expect it will become an ever more pressing issue for V4 countries.

    The EU is threatening and attempting to bully them into Islamisation and diversification, which is always ironic when Islam is involved.

    Ironic too the globalists would expect V4 migrant workers returning to their homes to evangelise for multikulti, whereas the opposite appears to have happened- V4 returnees are rightly warning their compatriots that it is a disaster. That no-one in their right mind would want rape and enslavement gangs, terrorism and jihad, while politically-correct laws make proper debate all but impossible.
    To name but a few of the iniquities.

    I wish the V4 all the best but I suspect to avoid the fate that looks all too likely for other European countries, the V4 will have to leave the EU.

    It would appear however they want to have their cake and eat it, as the saying goes.

    • Only Hungary could make a pain-free exit from the EU, because it is the only V4 nation that is not in debt to the ECB. As soon as the others tried to leave, the bill would come due, and you can be sure Brussels would turn the screws as tight as possible.

      Debt slavery is what holds the EU enterprise together.
