Legal Insurrection kicked off YouTube.

Looks like the Silicon Valey types are taking the election hard.

The YouTube channel of influential conservative politics and law website Legal Insurrection has been removed by the video sharing service, citing copyright infringement claims.

"This account has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted," explains YouTube, in a notice posted to channel's page.

Legal Insurrection founder and publisher and Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson voiced his anger and astonishment at the channel's removal. "It's very frustrating, it's very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself," he told

Let that be a lesson to all of us out here in Non-PC Land. Google can pull your plug, and there's f-all you can do about it.

This site, for example, is hosted on Google Blogspot, listed on Google Search, and posted using GMail. They can put me out of business ten seconds from now, and I have -zero- recourse.

If the Phantom Soapbox disappears from the web with no warning some day, without an announcement or a final place-holder post saying what happened, assume foul play.

May I suggest there is now an opening in the market for a web service provider that is not run by shrieking SJW assholes?
