After YouTube Shooting, We Need Better Vegan Activist Control

After YouTube Shooting, We Need Better Vegan Activist Control

Nasim Aghdam Had Been Interviewed by Police After Father Warned She Might Go to YouTube

Information came out about the YouTube shooter overnight that will surely make the story disappear. The shooter was an Iranian-born female who held anti-capitalist, animal rights views. She used a pistol, not an AR-15. It also looks like the police may have been able to prevent the shooting.

Nasim Aghdam, who came to America from Iran with her family in 1996, injured three people at YouTube headquarters before she killed herself. Her dad told numerous outlets that he warned police “she might be headed to YouTube because she ‘hated’ the company.” Police confirmed they interviewed Aghdam Tuesday morning…and let her go.

Her father, Ismail Aghdam, told outlets that his daughter became angry at YouTube because the company “de-monetized” her channels, which left her without any income.

From Fox News:

The police identified the shooter as Nasim Aghdam, 39, of Southern California — and said they had a run-in with her earlier in the day.

Ismail Aghdam said he reported his daughter missing on Monday after she did not answer her phone for two days. He said the family received a call from Mountain View police around 2 a.m. Tuesday saying they found Nasim sleeping in a car.

He said he warned them she might be headed to YouTube because she “hated” the company.

Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson confirmed officers located a woman by the same name asleep in a vehicle asleep in a Mountain View parking lot Tuesday morning.

Nelson said the woman declined to answer further questions but the police spokeswoman did not respond to a question about whether police were warned Aghdam might go to YouTube.

Aghdam reportedly maintained a personal website alleging that YouTube compensated her unfairly and censored her views.

The Mercury News reported that Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson confirmed that police interviewed Nasim:

“Our officers made contact with the woman after the license plate of her vehicle matched that of a missing person out of Southern California,” said Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.

“The woman confirmed her identity to us and answered subsequent questions. At the conclusion of our discussion, her family was notified that she had been located.”

Nasim told her family a few weeks ago that YouTube censored her videos and cut off payment. On her personal website, she wrote, “My Revenue for 300,000 Views Is $0.10?????” She even used a Hitler quote: “Make the lie big, Make it simple, Keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”

The Mercury News noted that Nasim had a large presence online with videos on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. The videos covered things like workout tips and vegan cooking. She was an animal rights activist and published many videos about animal abuse:

She was a staunch animal rights campaigner whose websites featured many graphic images and videos of “animal murders”, “slaughters” and vivisection.

Among the many bizarre-looking images is one which shows a picture of her superimposed on a drawing of a cow in a field of flowers drinking milk from its udders.

In another, captioned “Dog skinned alive”, she is pictured wearing a canine mask with painted drops of blood all over her.

She is also photographed with animals including a rabbit, bird, sheep, pig – and superimposed next to a lion in a glittering black and silver gown.

In 2009, she attended a PETA protest against the use of pigs in military training:

She dressed in a wig and jeans with drops of painted “blood” on them, holding a plastic sword at the demonstration outside the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base.

“For me, animal rights equal human rights,” she was quoted as saying in the paper.

The latest videos changed course as Aghdam expressed her anger at YouTube (emphasis mine):

On a March 18 Instagram post, she railed at YouTube: “All my youtube channels got filtered by youtube so my videos hardly get views and it is called “merely relegation.” This is also happening to many other channels on youtube. This is the peaceful tactic used on the internet to censor and suppress people who speak the truth and are not good for the financial, political … gains of the system and big businesses. I recently got filtered on instagram too and maybe its related to youtube and youtube staff asked instagram to filter me here too!!?”

On Jan. 28, Aghdam recorded a video of herself lamenting her perceived “discrimination” by YouTube, particularly railing on how YouTube determined her ab workout video was too racy and, therefore, filtered it.

“I’m being discriminated and filtered on YouTube and I’m not the only one,” the video begins, as Aghdam, wearing a black, white and orange long-sleeved shirt and short jet black hair stands in front of a background of green and white stars. “They age restricted my ab workout video. A video that has nothing bad in it. Nothing sexual.”

YouTube employee Dianna Arnspiger ran to a window after she heard gunshots. She saw the shooter on a patio:

She said the woman wore glasses and a scarf and was using a “big huge pistol.”

“It was a woman and she was firing her gun. And I just said, ‘Shooter!,’ and everybody started running,” Arnspiger said.

She and others hid in a conference room for an hour while another employee repeatedly called 911 for updates.

“It was terrifying,” she said.

huh a vegan going nuts. must have needed more protein in diet.

I’m confused she’s vocally and devoutly anti-capitalist but she was upset to the point of premeditated homicide because YouTube wasn’t compensating her business venture. Figuring out how to make money by being anti money is ultimately capitalistic, so I don’t think she was really clear about what capitalism is.
This isn’t unusual though, considering all of the billionaires that think income inequality is bad and income re-distribution is a good – for everyone else, of course.

    It’s that old capitalism vs corporatism thing.
    Some people don’t “get” the difference.

It also looks like the police could have prevented this.

Ahhh … how? They located a reportedly missing person, and were later told that she “might be headed to YouTube” … which doesn’t mean a whole hell of a lot.

A coiled rattlesnake ready to strike; an inflated blow/puffer/fish; a cat with an arched spine and extended claws; a man with a boot on his head, a beach float around his waist holding a long rifle.

Gary Larson’s famous How Nature Says, “Do Not Touch”

Add Nasim’s photo.

I thought that only bad think people i.e. conservatives were being demonitized. The one video I saw from this woman was weird and corny, but why demonetize? She had 300,000 views on some of her videos.

I wish Google would sell YouTube, the stupid sjw VP is typical of most sjw’s in that she has no spine and is fucking everyone trying to please the “right” people. Their stupid mantra “do no evil” isn’t helping.

I am not happy that she shot innocent people but hopefully this has a good outcome in that the shooter is the only dead one.

An “Animal Rights Activist” who had no compunction about attempting to take human lives. No surprise there.

I’m a life member of the NRA, and I didn’t know we had so many vegan peta members !

    And I mistakenly thought people were shooting watermelons because they explode. I guess I had better get with this NRA vegan stuff before people start stoning me for being a steak eater. Does anyone know the best caliber for a 15oz can of black beans? Does a 20gr .17 HMR sound about right?

      pilgrim1949 in reply to Firewatch. | April 4, 2018 at 12:22 pm

      Have to be careful there.

      Make sure it’s not one of those full-semi-automatic weapons of mass uneducated confusion with a high capacity magazine muzzle break hand grip — after all, how many shots does it take to kill a can of beans? No one needs more than one bullet, you know. That’s what the “experts” tell us.

      alaskabob in reply to Firewatch. | April 4, 2018 at 12:27 pm

      1) As with any shot.. location is everything… placing the shot between the “e” and “a” in beans may be the best.

      2) Since the Progs have conflated the actual power of cartridges, only the two most powerful “dangerous” calibers will do… the 223 and 7.62 x 39 “assault cartridges”.

      Personally, an undisturbed can of black beans can be handled with a 17 HMR or even the 17 Hornet but was alerted the game changes and I have to switch to solids in a 470 Nitro Express double rifle in case there is a charge.

        DaveGinOly in reply to alaskabob. | April 4, 2018 at 6:07 pm

        You should use a single-shot Hornet to give the can a sporting chance. Your gun bearer should have the 470 in case you merely enrage the beans with a poorly-placed shot.

YouTube has definitely been unfriendly to its own business model. They have thousands of people, if not millions, spending real time, real energy, real effort, real money, to create content for YouTube.

Then YouTube unilaterally kills the value of all that work. There are a lot of distressed contributors out there. They’re fortunate that most born and bred Americans wouldn’t take this path, but rather a constructive path, of going to other sites or creating other sites, to give YouTube what it deserves, which is to be de-monetized itself.

    forksdad in reply to Close The Fed. | April 4, 2018 at 10:50 am

    YouTube is converged. They prioritize other things before the good of the company or profits. Plus, even when they, ‘demonetize’ a video they can still put their own ads on there, you just don’t get the money.

The best response from YouTube to totally prevent this kind of tragedy from ever happening would be to ban Prager University videos. Somebody get on that. We got lives to save.

The consistent thread in all of these killings is mental illness.

“The consistent thread in all of these killings is mental illness.”

Yeah but most crazy people don’t shoot anybody. A narrower consistent thread is authorities are warned but prove ineffective. Boston Marathon and pretty much all the rest…

    bvw in reply to Jwest. | April 4, 2018 at 11:52 am

    “Most crazy people” wow. Statistics misapplied, bigly.

    Most people with names ending in Z don’t kill people either.

    But I do bet that statistically, and this is just a bet, that people whose names begin or end in Z do have higher per cap rates of committing murder than is average for the alphabet. Just a WAG. Wild assed guess.

Look another unhinged leftist.

“Nasim Aghdam Had Been Interviewed by Police After Father Warned She Might Go to YouTube”

Not after, before. Police SHOULD have returned to interview again after hearing from her father that she might be out to get YouTube. That failure is as glaring as the ignored warnings about Cruz wanting to shoot up his high school. How the hell did they not go back out looking for her again?

    Paul in reply to AlecRawls. | April 4, 2018 at 4:47 pm

    So you’re saying you want the cops to do their jobs then? Wouldn’t it be easier for everyone to just forfeit their inalienable rights instead?

I have some questions. Is she lesbian? Was she sexually abused as a child? Is she Jewish or Arab or Christian by upbringing and heritage? On R/The_Donald there’s some suggestion that she is Muslim. But I wonder.

Also: toxioplasma gondii?

    alaskabob in reply to bvw. | April 4, 2018 at 12:34 pm

    She was wearing a head scarf…. either religion or making a fashion statement for the shooting.

    As for Toxo…. women just do not get it that cats are risky. Also, we have had three cat scratch fever patients in the last year. Every time I see a cat look at me I think they are just sizing up the prey.

I call ‘fake news!’ Everyone knows the YouTub campus is a ‘gun free zone,’ so there’s that…

Here’s hoping all the victims survive and have a quick recovery.

I have a confession to make: My sense of compassion for the victims is being overwhelmed by the schadenfreude I feel for the SJWs after all their Parkland hysterics.

BTW: Has anyone chatted with David Hogg for his expert opinion yet?

Update: she used the dreaded ASSAULT PISTOL !
and since she used a pistol it had to have the MURDEROUS

I love animals, but to equate animals to humans, to state that animal rights should equal human rights is seriously off. What typically happens with those who believe this is they lower the value of human life, not raise the animal’s value.

It works just like socialism, where the general outcome is less for more people other than the ruling elites.

Frankly, she appears nuts in the little I looked at, which is why she probably got so many views, but you can only watch crazy for so long before you start being a bit crazed yourself.

Hard to say if this was a police failure to any degree. I’m sure police in California get a lot of calls that give warnings of the person of interest is possibly targeting someone or a company. They would be limited in what they could do, though following her might have helped prevent this, I doubt they have the manpower to do so.

Nothing to see here. This was a woman, not a man, so toxic masculinity is not the cause. And, there was high-capacity, semi-automatic rifle, which the media can call an “assault rifle”, just a pistol, so this is not anything of note. It does not even qualify as a mass shooting, because the “body count” is so low.

One common trait continues to manifest itself in this shooting, the shooter was either not serious about shooting people or was totally incompetent.

    Paul in reply to Mac45. | April 4, 2018 at 4:47 pm

    Yep, don’t want to talk about confiscating pistols yet. First we confiscate the rifles, we’ll come for the pistols later.

    alaskabob in reply to Mac45. | April 4, 2018 at 5:26 pm

    Considering the standard hit to shots fired is 1:4 or worse in police gunfights I wouldn’t put her into the inept column quite yet. A seriously trained SWAT (or private citizen) could up the ante (which we will not talk much about).

    Does YouTube just pull the plug without any warning to these people? Look at Prager… good grief… talk about a spectrum of people shut down.

      Mac45 in reply to alaskabob. | April 4, 2018 at 8:50 pm

      Actually, most LE defensive firearms training is pretty inept the last 20 years. But, there is a big difference in LE shooting incidents, where a person is usually armed and possibly shooting at the LEO, and a person stalking a multitude of targets within a confined area, such as a building.

      Even with a pistol you should have a 1:1 hit to shot ratio and a 1:3 kill ration, in a situation like this. So, this is pretty inept.

Read through the Daily Mail’s article and it linked to some parts of her videos. Weird enough, but interesting. Artistic. Which makes me wonder, again, and ask, again: the usual suspects of motive in cases of girl killers are …. my question is why aren’t THOSE questions being asked. Or did I miss them being asked?

(Usual suspect motive 1: a history of sexual violence 2: lesbianism, sexuality issues. 3. Childhood sexual abuse. Are there others? I mean usual motives in such killings or attempted killings?)

The funny thing is that this incident will not lead YouTube to examine its censorship program. Its management will take this as confirmation that their actions viz gun channels are correct.

And they will certainly not notice that their campus has yet to be attacked by a disgruntled gun channel owner, although the fact that they were attacked by a lefty should come as no surprise. Leftists have been telling their followers that oppression of the their freedom of (correct) speech is properly met with violence (usually riots and assaults directed against people who support the opposition). YouTube made the mistake of putting themselves in the crosshairs of an SJW for being less than correct by censoring what is usually recognized as protected (for being politically correct) speech.

This one just seems tragic to me. She’s really just a copycat of the other shooters. They get so much attention and youtube gave her an outlet that they took away. Very sad.
