Google’s online video-sharing platform YouTube has removed a viral video that exposed the links between the foreign vested interests and a set of ‘Indian’ media and propaganda websites.
The String – a popular Indian YouTuber, who has around 3,75,000 subscribers on YouTube, published a video on Wednesday exposing the links between foreign vested interests that plotted a global propaganda campaign against India and propaganda website such as AltNews.
In the expose, the String had highlighted how left-wing billionaire George Soros had been indirectly influencing India’s political affairs by funding a few far-left websites. He also highlighted how these websites were mentioned in the Greta Thunberg ‘Toolkit’, the documents inadvertently shared by Greta Thunberg that exposed that the foreign conspiracy against India.
In the video, The String revealed that AltNews has certification from the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), which is backed by the Poynter Institute. The Poynter Institute in turn is funded by the Open Society Foundations, which is controlled and funded by George Soros. In addition to George Soros, the Poynter Institute is also funded by Big Tech oligarchs like Facebook and Google.
Soon after the release of the video, it became viral and garnered over 1.5 lakh views in just few hours.
However, the 12-minute video is now being taken off the platform without providing any reason. The YouTube video was widely shared on social media platforms. Taking to Twitter, the String (@StringReveals) said that YouTube had removed their latest expose.
It is pertinent to note that during the course of his life if there was one thing George Soros has hated the most, it is Nationalism. And at Davos, in his speech at the World Economic Forum (WEF), Soros committed $1 billion towards fighting nationalism and nationalists. George Soros claimed that the “biggest and most frightening setback” was in India and accused Narendra Modi of “creating a Hindu nationalist state.”
The progressive Jewish-American philanthropist has a reputation for interfering in the internal affairs of other countries through his network of NGOs. Viktor Orban’s Hungary and Vladimir Putin’s Russia have taken concrete steps directed towards curbing his influence in their internal matters. It would be safe to assume that a significant share of that investment would find its way in India. There are several NGOs and organisation that are connected to, directly or indirectly, to George Soros in India. These organisations often work against national interest as OpIndia has reported in this article.
The video by String, that has now been taken down by YouTube showed a rather direct link between media houses like AltNews, The Wire, Scroll etc to the billionaire Geroge Soros, who has declared war against India.
