@Blickers,
It helps if you actually do the proper search: #walkaway

Listen, I follow politics and I barely ever heard of "walkaway" until the subject came up in this thread. I figured it was just another internet thing that will come and go. If You Tube is being sneaky like you say, why do you need to write "walkaway" only one way to get to get to Stephen Colbert's video? Everyone knows spelling is de-emphasized on the internet and those that can spell frequently choose to put the ability into hibernation when on the web. If YouTube was pushing Colbert's comments on YouTube, they would have his video first no matter how "walkaway" was written.

So a video mocking the walk away movement is the top search return, not actual video's that people have made talking about why they are walking away.
But it's not Colbert's video mocking the "walkaway" thing, which goes against your argument that they are pushing Colbert's video.

Also, it's very possible that the "walkaway" thing is just not a very successful propaganda effort, and it is engendering more negative reaction than positive reaction. That would explain why, when it comes to "walkaway" videos, vids that mock or attack it are more popular than those which support it.

I saw the abuse of power by the DoJ and the IRS. That is quite an experience when I also got to see him name Al Sharpton as a go to source on race.

And the remainder of Obama's minions are still trying to enforce Obama's law. Hence, the fabricated witch hunt.

What are you talking about, did you click the link I shared, or did you ignore it? I'm guessing you ignored it, here it is again.

Propaganda effort? It seems Colbert was using propaganda to discredit, in his typically humorless way, a movement he see's as a threat to his #resist support. I'm only wondering why a Colbert video mocking the movement was the first video I searched for when I used the proper movement name instead of a search, mocking #walkaway, which would produce his video:
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mocking+%23walkaway
or "#walkaway myth"
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%23walkaway+myth

He mocks the meme's instead of maybe looking at the actual movement, but his intention is to cast doubt on the entire movement, which he successfully does by calling it "conservative meme's" and then showing a bunch of meme's people made from stock photo's. Now his audience will think the entire #walkaway movement is fake, which was his intention. Now youtube being the left leaning company they are, manipulate searches using the software to generate what they think people want instead of what they are actually searching for. This is the perfect example, instead of giving search results for video's of the people who actually made walkaway video's you get Steven Colbert making fun of walkaway meme's and casting doubt on the movement's grassroots, that is propaganda.

@coldjoint,
Yes, I am. I'm 84 years old, and the only governmental abuse I experienced was during WWII when the white majority put us Japanese Americans into concentration camps that ended up wasting money and resources. The government didn't incarcerate Germans or Italians. Their actions were based on bigotry pure and simple.
For those who doesn't know about that history, the 442nd Infantry made up of Japanese Americans were the most decorated unit in our country's history. They fought during WWII in Italy, France and Germany. Many served in the MIS in the Pacific Theater. Our country apologized and paid us $20,000 reparations. I know of no other country that has done what the US government did to apologize and to pay reparations for their wrongdoing. https://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2013/08/09/210138278/japanese-internment-redress

The US govt did actually:
Internment of Germans
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internment_of_German_Americans
The internment of Italians
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internment_of_Italian_Americans

There were no where near as many Italians and Germans incarcerated as Japanese, but to say it didn't happen is a lie.

The IRS targeted Conservative groups. The DoJ deliberately rigged banking against gun manufacturers in operation Chokepoint. And Obama spied on a future president of the US. Those are all abuses by the government that was Obama's police state.

I used that quote in case someone did not know that.

Why is it always necessary to explain your own posts to you three times over before you even get the foggiest idea of what you just posted?

First: You said that you went to YouTube and searched for a walkaway video and Stephen Colbert's video making fun of it was the first one that came up. That sent you into accusations of YouTube fixing things, even though Stephen Colbert is a lot more popular than this walkaway phenomenon.

Second: I said I searched YouTube for "walkaway" and did not get Stephen Colbert's video, and showed a screenshot proving it.

Third: Then you said:
Quote Baldimo:
Quote:
I did a search for "mocking #walkaway" and another for "#walkaway myth" and on neither of those searches, did the Colbert video show up.
. Okay, that's three different search terms for the walkaway thing, my "walkaway", and your "mocking #walkaway" and "#walkaway myth", where Colbert's video did NOT appear. If YouTube is trying to fix it so that Colbert's video appears when you want a video about walkaway, they sure seem to be doing a lousy job of it. Most search terms don't show the Colbert video.

Fourth: Only then did you say,
Quote Baldimo:
Quote:

Fifth: I respond that if YouTube was fixing the search so that if you want to see a video about "walkaway" you get Colbert's video pushed on you, then they would make their algorithm so that Stephen Colbert's video would come up first on all or most search terms. Instead, even you admit that Colbert's video didn't come up on most search terms you tried, only under one search term, #walkaway, does Colbert's video appear.

As a computer expert, I'm sure you will agree that YouTube has the expertise to fix it so that any video that YouTube might favor will appear under an infinite variety of search terms. Therefore, the fact that the popular Colbert video on the subject, using only one specific search term, (but no others), clearly indicates that YouTube is not fixing it for Colbert's video to appear at all. You are trying to play "victim" with absolutely no evidence to back you up.

The video just came up first on your one specific search term because Colbert is a hell of a lot more popular than this "walkaway" thing, that's all.

@Blickers,
And here's another search term, "about walkaway". Once again, no Colbert video. Far from being pushed on you, YouTube seems intent on making Colbert's walkaway video hard to locate.

Hah! Two of your search terms, three of my search terms here and one search term before yield SIX search terms which don't show Colbert's video, only one which does. As usual, conservatives complain about being victimized when they aren't. They constantly see conspiracies against them when none exist, and this one about YouTube showing popular comedian Stephen Colbert's video about "walkaway" is a perfect example.
