Paul Joseph Watson is a YouTube pundit. Naturally, he is conservative because as he points out, the left is about emoting rather than rational explanation so their media of choice is Twitter. He explains here why Google (which owns YouTube) is in the process of shutting down or tuning out, all conservative commentary contained in YouTube’s video collection. It’s censorship.
The argument goes that because Facebook and You Tube are private companies they can do what they like.
But that doesn’t work for toilets and restaurants. These establishments are governed by a rule called Public Accommodation. It comes from the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and it says this:
(a) All persons shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, and privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation, as defined in this section, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, color, religion, or national origin.
Given the ubiquity of Facebook and YouTube, couldn’t a Public Accommodation argument be made for people using their services? Doesn’t the First Amendment have a place here? Thoughts below, please!
