    Well of course it is an attack on Ron Paul. It s not conspiracy its just fact. Look how he was treated by media.. blacking him out.. WHY? Because of the message.. it is so anti system and anti establishment, they are scared.

    Well, that’s silly. All that is going to happen now is that the same videos will be uploaded again on youtube at rapid speed under hundreds of accounts.

    Trying to bully a voluntary group of Ron Paul messengers with negligible copyright infringement, a group that already feels like they are being silenced, will only make them & other groups respond back even more aggressively.

    If you take any popular video down because of that, expect it to be uploaded 10-100 more times within 24 hours.

  3. LOL at all the Paulbot conspiracy nuts.

  4. I’ve seen many videos on other YouTube channels that I was surprised were not taken down due to them containing television network content – the difference? They clearly posted on all the videos that it was used under the terms of “fair use” and for educational purposes. Not a fail safe by any means, but it must be working in some cases. The content of the videos were also clearly in the ballpark of educational or fair use.

  5. The trick would be to start FreeTube…

    This certainly appears to be censorship against the Ron Paul campaign. If it is CNBC who is responsible, what could they possibly gain in filing charges other than trying to promote Romney? The freedom of speech isn’t as free as people might think. I have just lost all confidence in YouTube as being a non-partial source of information based on what I’ve just .witnessed.

  7. I learned long ago if you like a video on youtube then down load it because it may not be there tomorrow. I use keepvid.com it is easy.

    So You Tube wants to join the list of those censoring Ron Paul, well how about this You Tube: I will censor my watching of You Tube altogether. Sell that to your advertisers. Bite Me

      yes, because youtube is going to lose a massive amount of money if you stopped going to youtube. mind = blown.

  9. It’s only a matter of time before Paul supporters are rounded up and put in FEMA camps. I can;t wait!!!!

    • Mike, do you know what will happen to you if Ron Paul wins? Absolutely NOTHING except that you might have to work for a living.

    • Mike, what an absolutely irresponsible and ignorant thing to say. Had you lived in Germany during Hitler’s years, you probably would have said the same thing about “those pesky Jews”.

  10. Ron Paul 2012!

    Youtube has been censoring anti-establishment outlets for a long time. It’s not always that they take the videos or channels off the site, but more that they censor the numbers of views. I think most of us know now that nearly every media outlet, online or other, are run by the same republicrats that run everything. Obamney is what they push. The question is, are enough people awake to make any difference. It’s obvious that not enough in the republican party have their heads out of their bums. It’s a shame, but it looks like the majority of America truly is hypnotized by their tv/radio media demagogues, and we are going to continue electing leaders that will change nothing. If so, I can’t wait for the collapse that should’ve happened before the bailouts. We probably would already have recovered if we’d let the fake money system fall then. Any which way, I’d like to thank the severely retarded American public for helping me to solidify my decision to leave with my kiddos. They don’t deserve this debt and ruined dollar to pay it back with. Have fun with this mess you idiots.

  12. The removal of this social footprint could be a blowback to the establishment campaign if the numbers quoted above are true.

    It’s too late.

    The end has already begun for the donklephant (the supposed “2 party system”) establishment.

    Weather or not Dr. Paul wins the nomination is of no consequence. The Paul campaign and it’s supporters are like Navy Seal Team 6 vs the local PTA. We are infinitely more organized, motivated and educated about the election process. We are winning delegates at an exponential rate. We will not compromise on our values when it comes to the convention.

    Our message is liberty. The message is infectious and once infected it is terminal. Once a Ron Paul / Rand Paul / Liberty convert we will NEVER switch back. We, just like the special forces are “force multipliers” we “infect” those around us with the message of liberty and those infected go forth and infect more. The establishment can play it’s games and squeeze Ron Paul out of this election, but we have Rand Paul a young man cut from the same cloth that has a VERY VERY long political life ahead of him who we will support in exactly that same way as we have Dr. Paul.

    So you see establishment, it’s already over. The liberty infection takes hold at the very nature of all Americans and human beings…there is but one cure and that is to remove our chains and we are picking the locks right now.

    • way to copy and paste from somwhere else loser

    • Justin, what does it matter if it’s a copy and paste? We all share the same sentiment. Whomever originally posted this echoes the voice of the Ron Paul Revolution.

    CNBC was the claimant. This was a direct assault on Ron Paul with hundreds of claims of (c) violations.


    Might be time to start playing dirty

  15. by the way, I am sure the campaign had nothing to do with this. Supporters use Ron’s stuff all the time.

  16. Actually, that WAS the official channel for the 2008 campaign which was let lapse accidentally and someone else snatched it and wouldn’t give it back as I understand.

    However, it did have good stuff.

  17. Romney owns many of the media outlets named… hmmm.

      If You Tube wants to Join the ranks of those censoring Ron Paul then I for one will no longer watch any of You Tubes offerings. Sell that to your advertisers.
