I wish the best for the plaintiff in this case. This will hopefully be a prelude to anti-trust cases against these tech giants. When you have a monopoly over something like those companies do, the only way to avoid anti-trust legislation or suits is to try and stay under the radar, in part, by not taking sides and favoring one group over another during controversial debates. They're doing the opposite of what they should be doing.
Given Youtube's monopoly, telling people what legal material they can or can't post with their site is akin to Gutenberg telling everyone who owns a printing press what they can or can't print. The post office doesn't regulate political content, as far as I know. You can't defraud or send child porn, of course, but politics isn't regulated. Nor is it with phone or cell phone companies...you can have whatever legal discussions you want to have.
