YoderTexas is just a small personal channel on YouTube that is more about firearms, as of late. I never expect to make it an entertainment channel and have never given any thought to becoming a YouTube partner or monetizing.
I joined the YouTubers Union to show my support for the gun channels and others that are being penalized by the left leaning overlords at YT. I feel that your contract with YouTube is no different than those channels who aren't being singled out for demonetization. I believe that YouTube is in breach of contract. They need to clarify their TOS and other policies or back off with the strikes and demonetizing videos on channels who haven't actually violated anything. They need to fire the Southern Poverty Law Center as quickly as they hired them for overstepping their authority. Videos where ads are running are certainly making money for YT. Why else would they run ads on videos that were deemed unsuitable for advertising, thus demonetized?
