“Islam is the religion of peace, you know. A normally unnecessary declaration that sounds like introducing yourself as Norman ‘Not a Serial Killer’ Bates or Michael ‘Very Thin’ Moore. Most religions let their track record of not recently killing people speak for itself. But when your track record makes Nazis enviously lick their lips, then you have to rebuild a positive brand. Like oil companies who use a sun logo or insurance companies who claim to care, branding yourself as the ‘Religion of Peace’ would be unconvincing even if they weren’t constantly digging up new body parts in your backyard.” SultanKnish/Daniel Greenfield
Said very well Mr. Greenfield. And along that line of thinking, IMHO Google/YouTube has the same problem with credibility that the ROP crowd does. Their track record (4 years by our count) of giving lip service to new and improved procedures for removing terrorist videos is a crying shame. It works like this. A designated Google mouthpiece gets up periodically in front of the cameras (usually some time around 9/11 each year, or when some ROP scum kills person or persons they believe need to be eradicated according to mohammud after viewing some YouTube video h/t undhimmi) and at length rationalizes the limits of their responsibilities putting the onus of the job on the backs of those who flag videos. After that, we are expected to agree that their hands are tied.
Burned into my brain cells is a quote by now Executive Chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, who said at one point – “the company’s policy is to go right up to the creepy line, but not cross it.”
Terrorist videos definitely cross over the creepy line Mr. Schmidt, as do the background images used by terrorists and terrorist supporters. We have been remiss in not highlighting background images more often and will do a better job of it in the future, but if you ever want to gauge the malicious or evil intent of a YT video and language is a barrier (nasheeds are a perfect example), look at the user’s background image. Below are a whole lot of examples taken from current YouTube sites.
Perhaps after viewing the below we should take a couple of polls.
