For any of you, who may have liked our weekly trekking and tracking thru the vast world of Sunday titled songs, yet, missed my two previous announcements…
The above headline covers the “What” aspect. Re the “Why”…
YouTube, itself, made it necessary for me to free myself and flee. To amplify that a bit…
Their CEO, Susan Diane Wojcicki, has been rolling out the red carpet to hardcore, right wing radicals, perhaps even domestic terrorists, who, either willfully or unwittingly, are participating in Donald J. Trump’s attempt to overthrow fair, free elections, Democracy, America, etc. While some may screech about these ideologues “merely” exercising their freedom of speech and press rights, I’d counter that by pointing out such 1st Amendment protections were never intended for individuals whose words and deeds fail to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution.
Additionally, Wojcicki has been welcoming, with open arms, advertisers whose long-winded, revolting content, in this man’s opinion, attempts to legitimize / normalize just about everything, which sullies society, today. Yep, all these sponsors need do is show YouTube the money and they can then say and do whatever they effing please.
Granted, such issues did not adversely, overtly affect the music vids, as viewed on this WordPress site, but, I felt my not standing up for my principles was akin to tacit approval of YouTube’s odious modus operandi.
Although I am tempted to expurgate and/or completely purge all past posts featuring YouTube content, seeing how I’ve been blogging, here, for nearly five years, such a project could take some time. And life is too short to do that, especially for this sixty something guy. So, for now, content posted prior to the onset of my January 1, 2021 YouTube boycott will remain.
And that will also benefit anyone who might want to revisit the approximately 120 Sunday titled songs previously featured here. My homepage’s Category Menu and “Music” listing will get you there.
