Vimeo goes to the dark side: Censors video on Black Lives Matter’s connection with Chinese Communist Party

Several years ago, when YouTube began censoring videos for political reasons, especially videos on the Sandy Hook false flag, some of us sought refuge at Vimeo, a NYC-headquartered video hosting, sharing, and services platform with more than 200 million members across more than 150 countries. Unlike YouTube, Vimeo operates on an ad-free basis, deriving its revenue from  subscriptions by video content producers, and other services.

Since 2017, Vimeo’s CEO is Anjali Sud, 37, who was born in Flint, Michigan, of Indian immigrants.

But video producers can no longer go to Vimeo as a refuge from political censorship. Vimeo has gone to the dark side, joining YouTube, Facebook, Google, and Twitter in restricting or censoring content dispproved by the Left.

Fred Lucas reports for The Daily Signal, Oct. 29, 2020, that Vimeo has removed a video critical of apparent connections between the Chinese Communist Party and a founder of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization. 

New Zealand investigative journalist and author Trevor Loudon told The Daily Signal in a phone interview that he had posted on Vimeo for only “a few hours” and had about 1,600 viewers before Vimeo took it down: “It really touched a nerve for Vimeo to take it down after just a few hours.”

The 6-minute video, produced by Choose Freedom, a conservative group with which Loudon is associated, highlights various connections among activists. One group is Asians for Black Lives, founded by members of the Chinese Progressive Association of San Francisco, a pro-China group with ties to the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party. The video also underlines connections between the San Francisco-based Chinese Progressive Association and Black Futures Lab, a group started by Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza.

The Daily Signal first reported on the connection between China and the Black Futures Lab in an analysis by Mike Gonzalez, a senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation and former editorial writer and reporter for The Wall Street Journal.

Gonzalez’s reporting was immediately criticized by left-leaning media outlets, including New York Times reporter Kevin Roose.

Vimeo sent Loudon this message:

Your video ‘BLM and Communist China’ has been removed for violating our guidelines. Reason: You cannot upload videos that depict or encourage self-harm, falsely claim that mass tragedies are hoaxes, or perpetuate false or misleading claims about vaccine safety.

Loudon said he didn’t see how the video fits into any of the categories: “They said it violated their community standards,” Loudon said. “I think it upset the [Chinese] Communist Party, or the local communists, or both.”

Here’s the video, which is also posted on Rumble and The Daily Signal.

These people really hate free speech and thought. It’s terrible what is happening with all these companies. It won’t stop until we’re all issued our Newspeak dictionaries…

Okay,so we add another anti American “free speech” outlet to the “Well,not Really” list. We still have “Parler” though,and it doesn’t sound like they’re gonna cross that line. They seem to have grown a LOT since Twitter and Facebook sold out to the Communist Left “in broad daylight”. (They’ve been beholdin’ to the Commies “in the dark” for a while,but THIS was BLATANT.)

Unfortunately, in many insances, the CEO’s of any number of these large social media companies are not born of naturalized American parents. I think to some degree, these CEO’s have been influenced by the political training that their parent’s received in their home nations. Together with the fact that people who are uber rich cannot figure out what else to strive for–so all of a sudden they want to become people who are “world leaders” such as might be seen in the One World Order. These people are dangerous in that they do not believe in the American dream, in… Read more »

Folks,

For video alternatives, there are Bitchute, Rumble, and BrandNewTube. For Twitter alternatives, there are Gab and Parler. As for Fakebook alternatives, there’s MeWe.

Trevor Loudon has been a warrior exposing the ongoing Communist / Socialist effort to eliminate our Divinely inspired nation.

So this censorship is not surprising.

Recently I downloaded an app and taught myself to “screencast” web content to my “smart TV.” This allows me to access web content not available on YouTube / Vimeo but still enjoy the convenience of watching on a large screen (rather than a computer).

I highly recommend it as a workaround.

Trevor Loudon is excellent. I get his newsletter. My son used to live in NZ and that’s when I learned about him.

Last night Jack Posobiec posted his Antifa movie. This AM he found that both Vimeo and YouTube censored it. Bast@rds covering for the thugs.
