Damien De Ment, a controversial YouTuber who has grabbed media and mainstream Journalists’ attention, has been suspended for a week.

According to his YouTube channel about section, it says De Ment is ‘not a Journalist but a loudmouth’ — he said in a short 1 minute Facebook video posted to his personal page, after it being sent in a newstip to thisquality, that the suspension was over content he uploaded relating to the opinion of mass censorship.

“So I am on a one week ban from YouTube for a video that I have tried to appeal, and they have shot it down. They tried to call my videos spam. They tried to call it a scam, and they tried to call it deception. All it was, an opinion piece about an experience I had on Facebook with regards to censorship,” said De Ment.


De Ment says that being ‘clever’ is no longer cool. In hopes, he further claimed in the video that he wants to destroy New Zealand’s media paraphernalia by calling them criminals.

“Stop f**ing listening to the New Zealand mainstream media,” said De Ment.

On his YouTube channel, video titles read that the media are targeting him over QAnon related content he has posted while wearing a red MAGA (Make America Great Again) cap.

A video two weeks ago from this publication read that former Vice President Mike Pence would be executed and that former President Donald J. Trump was going to win the 2020 U.S. Elections. Joe Biden, however, was elected by the Electoral College on January 6 as the winner to become the 46th President of the United States of America.

thisquality understands that legal lawsuits throughout the election period took place in an attempt to try and overturn the results regarding what most followers of Donald J. Trump called as election fraud, voter fraud or election irregularities.

YouTube before the 2020 U.S. Elections, on October 15, took steps to stop the QAnon community from spreading violent content to an audience according to the New York Times.

“Managing misinformation and harmful conspiracy theories is challenging because the content is always shifting and evolving. To address this kind of content effectively, it’s critical that our teams continually review and update our policies and systems to reflect the frequent changes,” wrote YouTube in a Blog.

Removing violative content, reducing the spread of harmful misinformation, raising authoritative voices, and rewarding trusted creators.”
