The crackdown by social media giants following the siege of the US Capitol building has prompted some of Trump's followers to migrate to new 'free speech' platforms.




BitChute, a video-sharing website, is one of the websites that pro-Trump supporters are increasingly viewing as a suitable alternative to YouTube.




Despite guidelines existing, it appears that BitChute is doing little to remove hateful content.




On the websites, Trump supporters coalesce with video makers and their followers, calling COVID-19 a hoax, denying the Holocaust, and even promoting white supremacist terrorist groups.




Terrorist groups are actively recruiting members on these video-sharing platforms, experts told Insider.

Many of President Donald Trump's supporters have been searching for a new home online ever since major social media platforms banished the president and cracked down on violent content.With Parler unavailable and YouTube inhospitable to them, a growing number are choosing to migrate to smaller 'free-speech' platforms that do little to moderate hateful and sometimes criminal videos.

Why Trump's most extreme followers are migrating to other websites

The search for a new digital home was accelerated by the events of last week's siege of the US Capitol building when social media giants responded to the chaos and violence by suspending President Donald Trump's accounts.Twitter banned Trump permanently, Facebook followed suit, and Snapchat also cut ties with the president.
