No Molyneux No Mo

On the one hand, I am very pleased that Stefan Molyneux has had one of the sources of income from his hate-based business model cut off.

According to The Verge:
YouTube has banned several prominent white supremacist channels, including those belonging to Stefan Molyneux, David Duke, and Richard Spencer.

Other channels banned include American Renaissance (with its associated channel AmRen Podcasts) and the channel for Spencer’s National Policy Institute. The channels repeatedly violated YouTube’s policies, a YouTube spokesperson said, by alleging that members of protected groups were inferior. These come alongside other violations that led to YouTube taking action.
“We have strict policies prohibiting hate speech on YouTube, and terminate any channel that repeatedly or egregiously violates those policies,” a YouTube spokesperson told The Verge. “After updating our guidelines to better address supremacist content, we saw a 5x spike in video removals and have terminated over 25,000 channels for violating our hate speech policies.”
However according to Cointelegraph:
White supremacist Stefan Molyneux received roughly $100,000 in donations following the removal of his YouTube channel.
Demonstrating just how popular Molyneux's brand of pseudo-scientific racism and misogyny is, especially among crypto-currency douchebros.

On the other hand, I have linked so many times to interviews between Molyneux and people associated with race science and the IDW and now none of those links work. My post prior to this listed all the Quillette contributors who promote race science, who also appeared on Molyneux's channel: Beaver, Boutwell, Haier, Haskell, John Paul Wright, Shermer, Richwine, Perkins and Damore.

And I listed all those who promote race science who also have Quillette bylines and when I mentioned someone who also appeared on Molyneux's channel I linked their name to their Molyneux video.

Now when someone clicks those links they will see this:

It's an inconvenience, but a small price to pay to keep Molyneux from an easy way to promote his hatred and white supremacy.
