Syndicated radio host Dennis Prager joined Tucker Carlson Monday night to discuss his lawsuit against YouTube and its parent company, Google.
Prager University, which produces short videos relating to conservatism, filed a lawsuit last October alleging that YouTube is restricting their videos due to their conservative nature.
“They have decided that they will put, in this case, 40 of our 300 videos on the restricted list, meaning it joins pornography and violence,” Prager said, revealing that even a video by lifelong Democrat Alan Dershowitz on the legal founding of Israel was placed in “restricted mode.”
He noted that many of the Prager University videos address the exact same topics as videos created by liberal-leaning content producers, but Google appears ideologically motivated to block only the conservative point of view.
Prager said Google is “transparently ideological,” arguing this lawsuit is critical to ensuring the free flow of information on the internet.
“Google needs to say, ‘The truth is, we are not a conduit for free expression. We are here to, in fact, promote our views that are on the left,'” Prager said. “Either we’ll we a win or we’ll get honesty, and either way it’s a way.”
Steyn Battles Immigration Advocate on ‘Sanctuary’ Policies: ‘As a Legal Immigrant I’m a Bit Concerned’
On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Mark Steyn debated an immigrant advocate over San Francisco’s plan to fund $7 million worth of lawyers and other resources to help illegal immigrants fight deportation.
Steyn said Monday also marked the day President Trump’s sunset of the DACA program was to take effect, adding that it was instead neutered by “activist judges.”
National Immigration Forum executive director Ali Noorani said forcing local law enforcement to enforce federal immigration law leads to distrust among the immigrant community writ large.
He said that is true whether it is “San Francisco, St. Louis, or Spartanburg [S.C.].”
Noorani told Steyn police want to be “policing a safe city” and not a “sanctuary city.”
Steyn took issue with the notion, saying half of the 230 people detained by ICE in California recently were convicted of serious crimes.
Noorani said the silent point to be made was that the other half of the people were law-abiding, except for their initial immigration law infraction.
Steyn, who immigrated legally from Canada, said he is concerned that people like Noorani apply the term “immigrant” to people who came the right way as well as the wrong way.
He said immigration law must be enforced as written.
Steyn said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf (D) was actively “subverting” immigration law to the benefit of illegal immigrants.
