PragerU Drops a Powerful New Video That Will Put Google on Edge

"He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past."

- George Orwell, 1984.

The internet is a pretty straightforward thing, right? You create content, publish it, promote it and it's out there for everyone to see and share. It's the greatest tool of free speech the world has ever known. Except when it's not.

PragerU, an educational website that sums up big ideas in concise, shareable videos, is currently embroiled in a battle against censorship with the internet's most popular search engine: Google.

A year and a half ago, some students alerted PragerU that their videos were being flagged as inappropriate for minors and restricted on YouTube.

This came as a surprise at first to the PragerU staff. There had to be some kind of a mistake, they thought. PragerU videos are not only some of the cleanest on the internet, they feature Pulitzer Prize winners, MIT scientists and professors from Stanford, Harvard and Yale, among others. Yet, they were being restricted. Why?

Glenn interviewed Dennis Prager about PragerU's challenges, asking why he thought this was happening. Prager didn't mince words in his reply.

"I really did believe all my life that there was one thing that did unite Americans," Prager said. "And that is ... free speech. But I was wrong. The left, in particular, does not believe in free speech because it threatens their power."

To drive this point home, PragerU CEO Marissa Streit joined Glenn on radio to discuss an article in USA Today that had wrongly associated PragerU with a Nazi Twitter account and the alt-right website The Daily Stormer.

This is not just about PragerU being silenced. This is about another point of view that is being silenced.

The mainstream media has made it clear what it thinks of the educational website. But PragerU has yet to receive a straight answer from Google concerning the apparent censorship.

Fortunately, the folks at PragerU aren't the kind to take things lying down. They recently mounted a legal campaign in hopes of resolving their own issue and, hopefully, preventing others from being censored online by Google in the future.

A new video released by PragerU outlines the situation and calls for people everywhere to get involved in defending free speech online by signing a petition at StopOnlineCensorship.com

"This is not just about PragerU being silenced," Streit says in the video. "This is about another point of view that is being silenced. Tomorrow it's going to be your point of view that's being silenced."

Disturbed by the blatant censorship of PragerU videos, Glenn's charity, Mercury One, recently announced a new education initiative in which 50 percent of all money raised would go to PragerU in support of its mission.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
