YouTube censoring videos from conservative group (Prager U)


We like Prager and their videos. We don’t agree with everything they have to say but we agree with a whole lot. Their video on crony capitalism is excellent for example.

This is disappointing to see. Youtube is a private company (It’s part of Google.) and it can do what it wants, but this move seems to reflect a creeping intolerance online.

The PC brigades count on the ability to silence dissent because they know they can’t win in an open debate. The brigades do it on campuses and they’d like to shut down discussion online too.

In the latest example of bias against conservatives, YouTube is censoring videos from conservative group PragerU by placing them on “restricted mode.”

The category, which is applied to videos that may contain “potentially objectionable content,” was applied to 21 PragerU videos, the groupannounced on its Facebook page on Tuesday.

The group has created a petition to get YouTube to stop the censorship, and has already received more than 20,000 signatures. The 21 videos account for 10 percent of PragerU’s video collection, and include videos asking: “Are the Police Racist?” “Are 1 in 5 Women Raped at College?” and “Is America Racist?”
