James Yeager Wants You To Help Him Launch YeagerTUBE

Sunday, December 17th, 2017

As many of you may know, James Yeager has been banned by YouTube. To be sure, Yeager is a controversial figure in the firearms business. Some consider his banning is a blow to free speech while others feel that he brought it on himself. Regardless, we have to acknowledge that YouTube and other major social media platforms have become central to modern communications. Not many alternatives exist. Yeager recognized this and has developed a plan to create his own video hosting platform which he initially called YeagerTUBE, noting, “I am looking to build a free speech oasis in a sea of left wing censorship.”

The project has been renamed LiberTV with the project described as “WE are going to build a place where our freedom loving culture can share photos, articles, videos and podcasts. A place that doesn’t muzzle the voices of freedom and that cherishes our heritage.”

To make it a reality, he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign.
