Social media giants Google and YouTube want you to believe that everyone should have a voice…
…That all voices should be heard …
Unless your voice is conservative or Christian … and goes contrary to the progressive liberal agenda.
Pro-lifers have found their videos censored on YouTube.
Christian organizations have found their videos censored on YouTube.
For example, the conservative PragerU, founded by popular radio host Dennis Prager, has had dozens of its videos blocked from public viewing.
PragerU is doing something about it. It has sued Google and its subsidiary, YouTube, over censorship.
They say it is not a Left/Right issue but a free speech issue.
The lawsuit claims the social media companies are unjustly restricting their online video content.
YouTube has put 50 of PragerU’s videos under “restricted settings,” which limits accessibility to younger viewers and prevents the website from making money through advertising.
Google and YouTube claim the content is inappropriate for younger audiences (in other words, the content deals with reality and lays waste to progressive ideology).
PragerU’s videos present powerful counter-arguments to the Left’s radical vision of America.
Restricted videos include such topics as:
- “The Most Important Question About Abortion.”
- “Where are the Moderate Muslims?”
- “Is Islam a religion of peace?”
- “The World’s Most Persecuted Minority: Christians”
- “Why America Must Lead.”
- “The Ten Commandments: Do Not Murder.”
Even a video on the founding of Israel by liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz was shelved.
“Watch any one of our videos and you’ll immediately realize that Google/YouTube censorship is entirely ideologically driven.
PragerU is quick to proclaim its values are Judeo-Christian at their core and include the concepts of freedom of speech, a free press, free markets and a strong military to protect and project those values.
For the Left, censoring conservative voices is one of the few options it has left to avoid open debate, thwarting compelling, fact-based arguments on the issues of the day from being heard.
