We here at Activist Mommy know just how creative social media giants can get in their efforts to silence and censor conservative voices, but we are certainly not alone.
Over the last few years, more and more conservative, Christian, and alternative outlets, both big and small, have been hit hard with huge drops in traffic, posts constantly flagged and removed, or even downright expulsion from the major social media outlets.
Meanwhile, leftists go unscathed after openly calling for violence, harassing ideological opponents, or making disgusting “jokes” about pedophilia.
One of the biggest conservative outlets to experience what can only be described as systematic censorship on the world’s most prominent video sharing site, YouTube, is undoubtedly PragerU.
PragerU, a YouTube channel that has become a favorite of conservatives for their short videos portraying clear, coherent arguments from renowned scholars and commentators, began noticing many of their videos, which were undoubtedly rated “G”, in “restricted” mode, meaning users could not find them unless they navigated to the direct URL of the video.
They’ve brought a fair amount of attention to the extent to which YouTube, which is owned by Google, has suppressed their videos on the platform, now bringing a second lawsuit against the tech giant.
Fighting back against tech censorship is the only option, as long as these outlets maintain such a clear monopoly on the way we view and share information.
