The left has declared all-out war on Trump supporters.
They have done everything they can to make being an open Trump supporter as difficult as possible.
And the latest attack on two black Trump supporters committed by Google will make you sick.
Lynnette Hardway and Rochelle Richardson of North Carolina have made waves over the last two years with their YouTube channel.
Known as Diamond and Silk, their no nonsense attitude and support for Donald Trump has given them a huge following.
So huge that Donald Trump himself noticed them and invited them to speak at one of his famous rallies in North Carolina.
They have been able to generate a lot of money through advertising on their YouTube videos, allowing them to make even more videos in support of the now President.
But YouTube, owned by Google, recently made it much more difficult for them.
In recent days, Diamond and Silk have gotten notice that virtually all of their videos are not able to be monetized by the site because they are not “advertiser friendly”.
As reported by the Washington Times:
“Two of President Trump’s most ardent supporters, the YouTube stars known as Diamond and Silk, say a financial stranglehold has been placed on their videos.
Lynnette Hardway and Rochelle Richardson of North Carolina, whose support of Mr. Trump and no-nonsense delivery during the 2016 U.S. presidential season turned them into online sensations, said Thursday their YouTube videos have become casualties of the company’s attempt to silence “extremism.”
“@YouTube @TeamYouTube stopped over 95% percent of our videos from being monetized, stating: ‘It’s Not Suitable For All Advertisers,’” the two said in a series of tweets. “Wonder if @YouTube @TeamYouTube stopped the monetization of our videos because we are loyal supporters of the @POTUS. Hummmm. Sounds like Censorship to us, which is a Violation of our First Amendment. A Bias Method used to Silence our Conservative Voices. @YouTube, how was it OK to monetize our videos for the past two years and now those same videos are no longer eligible for monetization?””
Once the duo received notice of this, they went to Twitter to confront the CEO of YouTube personally, with the following tweet:

This news was not completely unexpected.
Last month, YouTube made an announcement with a plan to fight “inappropriate content”, stating:
“We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism,” the company announced Aug. 1 on its official blog. “If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.”
To a leftist, someone speaking in non-politically correct terms is about as inappropriate as it can get.
What do you think? Should YouTube reverse course on their assault towards Diamond and Silk?
