And they never even had the “decency” to give you your very own RFW DA page. How incredibly rude of them.
Anyway, like you say, Mark, it aint going to stop you. If anything, this kind of thing just makes one MORE determined.
It’s one almighty cult footbullet.
It’s probably due to the frustration of DM not being able to sue the big guy so they go after all the small guys instead. It’s like they are trying to shovel the crap back into the horse but, worse still, the whole ranch has got diahorea and its spraying all over the place. :).
I suppose we should also perhaps spare a little thought for all those innocent brainwashed arses that are being kicked 24/7 by Miscavige the Midget’s tiny boot over at the Cult Panic-Central War Room. It must be mayhem over there right now and its gonna get worse when this backfires on them.
Happy Tom Cruise Book Release Day to you too, Mark. 🙂
The complaint against Mark is frivolous, I’m sure you’ll get your account reinstated. YouTube is terrible with the way they handle copyright complaints, especially when it’s fair use. Unfortunately YouTube has the biggest community, that’s the only reason why I wouldn’t give up on YouTube just yet.
Mark you are welcome to have/use my Youtube account channel ‘CultOfScientology’ to post any messages to the youtube community. I wouldn’t hold my breath on the account being reinstated, Youtube sides with whomever has the the highest paid lawyers. Just upload on a new account or mine…
There doesn’t seem to be an arbitration possibility with YouTube. It’s a shame to lose all the comments viewers have made over the past year but such things happen.
If anyone can find a link on YouTube to actually contact someone, let me know. Doesn’t appear to be on the “contact us” page…unless you’re Scientology wanting to file a complaint. No problem there. A link leads right to them.
Per youtube, they are the biggest now, but not for long. People have tired of youtube’s ways. I use to love to browse the tube, but now I find less and less of interest. What irks me is that they’ll leave Nazi hate speech up for months and months but then in one day take down XENUTV… Don’t mess with CoS, that would just be wrong… BTW the Nazi hate speed bit was featured on CNNi about a month ago. Very interesting. They said they’d take down the offensive material but 5 months later it was there with even more offensive material. Guess XENUTV is more offensive that genocidal maniacs…
What’s even more of a concern in my opinion is that Mark is the copyright owner of his material. If it was CoS or that dweeb from the other day it doesn’t matter, youtube has chosen to favor Nazi skin heads in Germany over the very fair minded musings for xenutv. That shows you just how embedded CoS is in these things.
So to recap…
Youtube is a supporter of a Neo-Nazi’s right to hate speech
Youtube is not a supporter of Mark Bunker’s right to expose the CoS lie
Youtube/Google are supporters of oppression of the Chinese people
Youtube is a supporter of CoS and DM
Youtube is not a supporter of free speech nor a a forum for those who haev suffered or known people who suffered under this corrupt money scheme known as CoS
Select Report a Bug
Then Other site issues. At least it’s an inroad…
I wonder if someone like Keith Olbermann (or the like – perhaps the Today Show with Mat Lauer) would champion your cause considering the circumstances (the new book, video, etc) and that you are the copyright owner of all your material.
IMHO there is not any hateful speech in any of your videos unless you consider what CoS goons are saying.
I’m new and very interested in this whole Scientology controversy but the most important question I have is…WHY DOES CoS HAVE A CROSS AS THEIR SYMBOL? I’ve been raised a Protestant and I believe in Christ. I don’t understand this and it disturbs me a bit because so far from what I’ve read about the religion on CoS website it has absolutely ZERO, ZIP, NADA relevance to Christ. and EVERYONE (Christian/non) knows what that cross signifies. It’s upsetting me.
Even as Scientologists were discussing their coup against the BBC, Eugene Ingrams, a notorious private investigator regularly employed by Scientology, was probing the family background of Southern California radio talk-show host Vince Daniels after he had dared to criticize the work of Narconon, the group’s drug rehabilitation program, on his show. By August he had resigned from KCAA radio station, citing differences with the management.
I have just spent the last three days watching almost every video on your channel and was about to watch the remainder today. You’re videos are extremely well made, you’re approach is solid and you’re ability to show scientologists for what they truely are is hugely important and valuable to society. People need to be able to see these videos.
I am seriously enraged by YouTube’s actions today and will be letting them know, whatever good that will do.
Keep on keepin’ on.
P.S I think getting this story on TV is a great idea
So this wasn’t a DMCA complaint, or it would have been forwarded to you, in which case you could have responded to it. I don’t understand how your account has been yanked *without* any notice at all.
Following the revelation in Morton’s book that Vince Daniels was the target of investigation from the Church of Scientology, it appears *quite convenient* for the Church of Scientology to have all of Vince Daniels materials you put up on Youtube to be removed right at this time…
If I can be of any help Mark. There is that FLV player that can be use to play locally, so that could be an appropriate short term (or long term?) remedy. I wish to see Vince Daniels materials back online as soon as possible, people might end up googling for the whole story after reading Morton’s passage.
Seems toms not a happy chappy this artical in the Daily Mail says the vid was pulled from youtube shortly after it was released, but I found it any way here http://youtube.com/watch?v=-6Th69ou5Qw 9 mins of talking total crap though.
I’m really sorry to see this, Mark. Sad to say, this is not a big surprise. Michelle Malkin used to post videos regularly discussing issues with Muslim groups posting videos calling for jihad, showing scenes of us soldiers being killed and hummers being blown up.
The result? Malkin’s videos were removed due to “violations”…but the videos of American soldiers dying? The videos showing explosions overlaid on the White House? The videos saying Islam will dominate the world through Jihad? Still there. Plentiful.
Youtube is the most hypocritical site on the internet, bar none. There are bad sites, but they’re at least honest about being hateful or hypocritical. Youtube touts itself as a bastion of free speech, when it’s only about the speech they agree with or won’t have to stand up to a lawsuit for.
You cannot let this happen! You have to establish another account. The people need to know about the brainwashing that goes on at COS. I wouldn’t have believed the things people said about the COS if it weren’t for your videos. I would have said that the protesters were “nuts” and must have been trespassing or harassing these peaceful people. Your videos show that the COS is an aggressive organization seeking both political and social control for monetary gain. It’s “Soilent Green”, you’re Charlton Hesston and the people need to know.
Here are the terms of service regarding this issue. Notice the part whereit states “repeat offenders”
7. Account Termination Policy
A. YouTube will terminate a User’s access to its Website if, under appropriate circumstances, they are determined to be a repeat infringer.
B. YouTube reserves the right to decide whether Content or a User Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms of Service for violations other than copyright infringement, such as, but not limited to, pornography, obscene or defamatory material, or excessive length. YouTube may remove such User Submissions and/or terminate a User’s access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms of Service at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.
So theoretically unless Dr. B has posted copyrighted materials repeatedly, they should not have banned his account.

Although not a “High Priced Attorney,” I am a lawyer and will gladly help draft letters if needed. Feel free to email me (as I assume you see the email’s 😉 ) and I will see what I can do for you 🙂 You should be back on YouTube, and the Co$ should certainly feel the shame of having you removed.
I’ve never written you before, but I felt I had to let you know how significant your site has been in getting me the info I need to know about Scientology. This is what disturbs Scientology. You are giving out the truth! Scientology grows and feeds upon lies. We need strong advocates like you to offset their power. I support you and your work 110% and will be sending Youtube a complaint about their outrageous censorship of your work and the truth. I’m not a Scientologist, but I’m sure I could have been taken in if not for your site.
Hey Mark, sorry to hear about your youtube but your probably find that somebody working for youtube is a member of the church- after all don’t forget your talking about Calafornia here! I say you wait until the Pirate Bay crew bring out there new video hosting service http://www.thevideobay.org. Then there is no way your videos can be deleted for copyright reasons!
lol same old. i have been hearing about the book but I lack the funds to grab it lol working my way through school right now and have nooooo money! I am going over to look at the article that you mentioned.i have read acouple of pages pertaining to the book but have not had a chance to read any of it.. i gotta get a copy lol
I just discovered your site through one of my casual web browsing jaunts.. I can’t BELIEVE someone was able to get xenutv suspended on youtube, but I’m relieved that you’re back (for the time being).. As I stated on youtube I plan to post a link to your site on my myspace, as well as every other forum I can..
Anyone who doubts the seriousness of this situation need only look at this incident. It’s very real people, and it’s very scary.
XENU TV itself seems to be having problems. Possibly an overwhelming amount of traffic with the Cruise book out there. Although the Cruise Scientology video sn;t on my site, I suspect a loit of people are looking for more info.
I am happy the XenuTV was just suffering from a hicupp. When I had problems getting in last night, I was about ready to go balistic on the Co$, but I decided rational and intelligent though is better, so give it a day and see if it is back up. It was, and I am again happy 🙂
Anyway, Mark, keep up the good work. Keep fighting the good fight. And if there is anything I can do to help, let me know.
