EDL Speech Banned on YouTube for 'Hate Speech'

The EDL's Scott Lee has had his account 'disabled' for posting a video of the first speech from the EDL demo in Bradford on the 28th of August. That video is posted here after the YouTube quote:


The following video(s) from your account have been disabled for violation of the YouTube Community Guidelines:

* EDL Bradford Speech 1 - (Slacker1967)

We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express their points of view even if unpopular. But we don't permit hate speech. "Hate speech" refers to content that promotes hatred or violence against members of a protected group (race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). Sometimes there is a fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. If you're not sure whether or not your content crosses the line, don't post it.

Your account has received one Community Guidelines warning strike, which will expire in six months. Additional violations may result in the temporary disabling of your ability to post content to YouTube and/or the termination of your account.

Date Received: August 30, 2010"
