A researcher who goes by the moniker Independent Scientology News has learned that YouTube rejected his appeal and permanently shut down his channel for posting videos that were "severe violations of our Community Guidelines on Hate Speech."

Those videos were recordings from lectures by Nation of Islam and Scientology figure Abdul Malik Sayyid (Tony) Muhammad, who regularly expresses bigoted ideas, particularly about Jewish people.

As we pointed out previously, ISN was caught up in a wave of channel suspensions resulting from a recent crackdown by YouTube on extremist speech. The online giant was making a long overdue clean up, but because it relied on automated software, it had caught whistleblowers in its nets along with the extremists it was trying to fumigate.
