After twitter and facebook, youtube also tightens its action against the conspiracy theory movement qanon. Google’s video platform announced on thursday that it will remove more content containing conspiracy theories that justify violence. In this context, youtube explicitly referred to qanon in the blog entry.
The central claim of qanon supporters is that there is a conspiracy against U.S. President donald trump in the deeper layers of the U.S. Government apparatus. In addition, they often claim that prominent politicians of the democratic party in the USA love to be treated with hormones extracted from the blood of children. One strand of this was the "pizzagate" theory, which led to an armed man storming into a washington pizzeria in late 2016 to free children allegedly held captive there. He was arrested by the police; no one was injured.
