Update: Jim Hoft wouldn't pull race-baiting video from racist, anti-semitic group, but youtube did!

Earlier, I wrote about how Jim Hoft (aka Gateway Pundit) linked to a race-baiting video from a  white supremacist group and refused to take down the video after repeated requests from his commenters.  Or, to be more precise, here's the full timeline:

1.  Jim Hoft originally linked directly to the white supremacist group Council of Conservative Citizens while presenting the video.
2.  After being challenged in the comments, he made it look like he removed the link, but actually moved it to a different spot (see update #2 in the link).
3.  After being further challenged, he removed the direct link altogether, but still kept his link up to a youtube channel of the anti-semitic, white supremacist KillTheCensors.  
4.  However, after being repeatedly asked to remove the link to the white supremacist youtube channel by commenters and fellow conservative bloggers, he refused.  He also was shown to have linked to the Council of Conservative citizens on previous occasions.

But even though Jim Hoft is not willing to do right, at least youtube is.  I noticed on the page today that the video Hoft linked to had been removed:
Curious as to why this would be, I did a search on youtube for Hoft's friend KillTheCensors, and came across this anti-semitic comment:
(the video this comment was under, BTW, was a video claiming that Detroit's economic downturn was entirely due to the fact that there weren't enough white people living there now)

And when I clicked on KillTheCensors user name, I found out that the account had been disabled:
It's good to know that at least youtube won't support blatant racism, even though the most influential blogger in the St. Louis Tea Party movement does.
