The free speech website Bitchute is under attack once again, this time from activists pressuring Cloudfare to cancel their service. If you’re not familiar with Bitchute, it serves as a ‘free speech’ alternative to YouTube and has attracted a wide variety of individuals, groups, and movements. The left has been working relentlessly to shut it down for years now.


Ben Horne, an assistant professor of Information Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, recently co-authored a study that examined BitChute videos, metadata, and comments from June 2019 to December 2019. The results were alarming.

“BitChute hasn’t really received coverage like all those other alternative platforms,” said Horne. “It was relatively small when we started doing our data collection, but it’s grown a lot since.”

A week before the 2020 presidential election, he told me the platform grew rapidly after YouTube and other sites banned Plandemic, a viral film that spread COVID-19 conspiracy theories.

“In terms of measuring hate speech, the first thing that we found was that there was more hate speech on BitChute than on Gab,” explained Horne, referencing another alternative platform popular with the far right.

“Gab had been receiving a lot of criticism for being very hateful and having a lot of hate speech … but there was significantly more on BitChute.”

An August report by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) found white supremacist channels racking up hundreds of thousands of views on BitChute.

The UK-based Jewish advocacy group, Community Security Trust (CST), labeled BitChute — along with Gab, Telegram, and 4chan — as one of the internet’s biggest spreaders of anti-Semitic content.

A report from UK advocacy group HOPE not hate also found that BitChute was riddled with anti-Semitic content.

Once again, the left misunderstands the concept of “free speech.” Free speech isn’t about only hearing what you want or agree with. Yes, some stuff may be unsavory or unsettling, but that’s part and parcel of living in a truly free society. It’s not about silencing ugly views from a fringe Neo-Nazi or a left-wing Marxist group. Instead, it’s about fostering an environment where all ideas can be openly debated and discussed, even if they’re unpopular or uncomfortable. This freedom of thought and expression is what really matters and what the left seems to hate most — this is why they hyper-focus on these small, fringe groups.

Bitchute representatives recently spoke of the dangers of deplatforming and censoring. What we’re seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg.

It’s often said that controlling the banks means controlling the world… and keeping  with that diabolical theme, Bitchute recently revealed that SubscribeStar has now disabled their ability to accept new subscribers.
