EU Attacking Video Platforms

THE European Union is attacking video platforms such as BitChute for refusing to squelch its criticism in regards to the LGBTQ and BLM agenda.

Natural News reported the following:
Now the EU is going after video platforms like BitChute that refuse to censor content critical of LGBTQ and Black Lives Matter propaganda

The alternative media streaming platform BitChute, which is based out of the United Kingdom, has issued new guidelines against free speech that conform to the “hate speech” requirements of both its country and the European Union.

After consulting with the U.K.’s Office of Communications (Ofcom), BitChute determined that the wording of its “Incitement to Hatred” guidelines was too narrow and needed to be altered in order to better cover the scope of the U.K.’s regulations against “extremism.” …

Now, terrorism and violent extremism has been redefined by BitChute to include the prohibition of content coming from entities that have been “designated under counterterrorism legislation” as no longer having freedom of speech.

“In addition, those designated by the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States of America, the United Nations, the European Union or any member state of the European Union will be prohibited on the platform,” BitChute says. …

As for “Incitement to Hatred,” BitChute defines this as “any material likely to incite hatred against a group of persons or a member of a group of persons based on specific grounds,” including sex, race, color, ethnic or social origin, genetic features, language, religion or belief, political or any other opinion, membership of a national minority, property, birth, disability, age and sexual orientation.

This expansive list will almost certainly be used to silence critics of Antifa, Black Lives Matter (BLM), the Cult of LGBTQ, and various other protected left-wing groups that cry “hate” every time someone says or does something that upsets them.

BitChute says that it will no longer allow content that is in any way “derogatory, denigrating” or that contains “demonizing statements” against a group of people or members of a group.

“When material is confirmed by our moderators as being in violation of the Incitement to Hatred prohibition, it will be restricted to prevent viewing within a specific set of geographical areas,” BitChute says about its new process.

These geographical areas include the U.K. and Northern Ireland, member states of the E.U., states that form the European Union Economic Area, and any territories within any of these states.

Truly, one of the main reasons why we have sermons on our BitChute channel is because of grave concerns of censorship from video platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo. YouTube began ramping up its censorship upon us when Minister Michael C. Garrett gave a five-part series of sermons entitled Toxic Philosophy. The view count went from triple digits to the lower double digits – overnight!

Last year, Big Tech “Brother” essentially shut down both BitChute and Brighteon near the 2020 election – apparently to stop videos they did not like. Since we in the COJCOM have had issues with YouTube – along with our affiliated churches – we have added other video and audio channels and platforms (for a list with links, go to COJCOMs Multimedia page).

Now, while we do utilize these alternative video and audio platforms to some of Big Tech “Brother”, these certainly are only temporary – as we are getting ever closer to God’s prophesied time of famine of His living word – Amos 8:11-12. And that will render all these alternatives essentially useless.

Certainly relying on BitChute as an open door to proclaim the glorious Word of God, the Truth of God, and the ultimate Plan of God will be a problem in the future. And, as I said recently – it already is a problem since Facebook won’t even allow one to mention BitChute, because, as they claim, it goes against their “Community Guidelines.”

Speaking one’s conservative mind, and even religious conservative opinions come under fire – and the greater majority of this world are like sheep for the slaughter when it comes to blanket censorship, de-platforming, shadow banning, etc.

Friends, the loss of religious freedom to hear the very words of the Creator of the universe was prophesied – not just for prophet Amos’ time, but also in this end-time (cf. Ecclesiastes 1:9) -
“’ Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord GOD, ‘That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the LORD’” – Amos 8:11.
So, notice that God’s living word tells us that there is coming a time when the word of God won’t be able to be heard – from sea to sea, or from north to east. Our people who want to hear God’s living truth won’t be able to find it!

Friends, I have been WARNING since early 2011 that governments around the world will continue to pressure regulations with the Internet which will result in the ultimate fulfillment of Amos 8:11-12!

Now, this is in part of why we in the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries – along with our affiliated churches – are preparing for when our Lord Jesus Christ cuts “short” His work upon the earth – cf. Romans 9:28 – and of this soon-coming “famine” of hearing His word.

Let us consider what our Lord Jesus Christ said –
’ I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work’ – John 9:4.
Friends, we in the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries – and our affiliated churches – are doing the works of God while we can. We do understand that there is soon coming a time when “no one can work.”

Indeed, while our Lord Jesus Christ has opened this door for the Body of Christ – the Church of God – a door in which only He can shut (cf. Revelation 3:7-8), we know it will not remain open forever. And this is why we are trying out several different video and audio platforms – even though some of them have problems.

Yet, friends, there is the greatest of Good News – the coming kingdom of God – which will annihilate and replace the Babylonian type system of which we see in force today – cf. Revelation 13:16-18. □
