Dennis Prager’s Statement to the U.S. Senate Exposing the Enemies of Freethinking in America, GOOGLE AND YOU TUBE AND TWITTER AND FACEBOOK!

Statement by Dennis Prager to Senate Committee — July 16, 2019
It is an honor to be invited to speak in the United States Senate. But I wish I were not so
honored. Because the subject of this hearing—Google and YouTube’s (and for that matter
Twitter and Facebook’s) suppression of internet content on ideological grounds—threatens the
future of America more than any external enemy.
In fact, never in American history has there been as strong a threat to freedom of speech
as there is today.
Before addressing this, however, I think it important that you know a bit about me and the
organization I co-founded, Prager University, PragerU as it often referred to.
I was born in Brooklyn NY. My late father, Max Prager, was a CPA and an Orthodox Jew
who volunteered to serve in the US Navy at the start of World War II. My father’s senior class
thesis at the City College of New York was on anti-Semitism in America. Yet, despite his keen
awareness of the subject, he believed that Jews living in America were the luckiest Jews to have
ever lived outside of Israel.
He was right. Having taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College, written a book on
antisemitism, and fought Jew-hatred my whole life, I thank God for living in America.
It breaks my heart that a vast number of young Americans have not only not been taught
how lucky they are to be Americans but have been taught either how unlucky they are or how
ashamed they should be.
It breaks my heart for them because contempt for one’s country leaves a terrible hole in
one’s soul and because ungrateful people always become unhappy and angry people.
And it breaks my heart for America, because no good country can survive when its people
have contempt for it.
I have been communicating this appreciation of America for 35 years as a radio talk show
host, the last 20 in national syndication with the Salem Radio Network, an organization that is a
blessing in American life. One reason I started PragerU was to communicate America’s moral
purpose and moral achievements both to young Americans and to young people around the
world. With a billion views a year, and with more than half of the viewers under age of 35,
PragerU has achieved some success.
My philosophy of life is easily summarized: God wants us to be good. Period. God without
goodness is fanaticism and goodness without God will not long endure. Everything I and
PragerU do emanates from belief in the importance of being a good person. That some label us
extreme or “haters” only reflects on the character and the broken moral compass of those
making such accusations. They are the haters and extremists.
PragerU releases a five-minute video every week. Our presenters include three former
prime-ministers, four Pulitzer-Prize winners, liberals, conservatives, gays, blacks, Latinos,
atheists, believers, Jews, Christians, Muslims, and professors and scientists from MIT, Harvard,
Stanford and a dozen other universities.
Do you think the secretary-general of NATO, or the former prime-ministers of Norway,
Canada, and Spain, or the late Charles Krauthammer, or Philip Hamburger, distinguished
professor of law at Columbia Law School, would make a video for an extreme or hate-filled site?
The idea is not only preposterous; it is a smear.
Yet, Google, which owns YouTube has restricted access to 56 of our 320 five-minute videos
and to other videos we produce. “Restricted” means that families that have a filter to avoid
pornography and violence cannot see that video. It also means that no school or library can
show that video.
Google has even restricted access to a video on the Ten Commandments. Yes, the Ten
Commandments.
We have repeatedly asked Google why our videos are restricted. No explanation is ever
given.
But, of course, we know why. Because they come from a conservative perspective.
Liberals and conservatives differ on many issues. But they have always agreed that free
speech must be preserved. While the left has never supported free speech, liberals always
have. I therefore appeal to liberals to join us in fighting on behalf of America’s crowning glory –
free speech. Otherwise, I promise you, one day you will say, “first they came after
conservatives, and I said nothing, and then they came after me. And there was no one left to
speak up for me.”
Thank you
