17. DU already is self censored

If something as outrageous as the trailer for this possibly nonexistent movie were posted, there would be alerts and it is possible that it would be hidden.

Even the most extreme call for not allowing that garbage on the internet was a suggestion by the administration that YOU TUBE examine whether it violated their TOU - they did and said that it did not violate those terms.

Freedom of speech has never been absolute, nor has it ever meant a person saying outrageous things won't have a consequence. You can't call fire in a crowded theatre and there are libel and slander laws - in addition to the consequences of losing your own reputation. Here, the fact that the Copt made up a story of an Israeli Jew and Jewish backers suggests that he hoped that his name would not become known. Maybe because he knew that this film was despicable.
