Continuing their efforts to eliminate our Constitutional Republic, those who want to control every aspect of our lives are attacking our freedom to communicate on the internet. PragerU is fighting for free speech online for all Americans.
Google and YouTube are two of the instruments of this censorship. Specifically, they are taking steps to eliminate the voice of PragerU. They use their tools to block from students and other people across the country — the PragerU short video messages. See the videos they are censoring at:

Dennis Prager and PragerU are fighting back, and they need our help.

To: Subject: BREAKING: New lawsuit against Google and YouTube
BREAKING: PragerU has officially filed a new lawsuit against tech giant Google and its subsidiary YouTube in the state of California.
With an appeal currently pending in the Ninth Circuit, PragerU is now doubling down in California state court, continuing the fight for free speech online for all Americans and calling for Youtube to end its restriction of over 80 PragerU videos.
The Left controls our universities.
The Left controls our mainstream media. Don’t let the Left control the Internet, too.
PragerU is leading the fight against the censorship of conservative voices online.
Can we count on your support as we fight to end the censorship of our ideas?
It’s now been over one year now since PragerU filed the initial federal lawsuit against tech giants Google and YouTube for censoring so many of our videos. YouTube continues to restrict access to more and more of our videos simply because they present a conservative point of view. There are currently over 80 PragerU videos that are restricted – more than double the amount since we filed our lawsuit against Google.
It’s clear that Google is not backing down. But don’t worry, neither are we.
We are prepared to take our lawsuit against Google as far, and for as long, as we need to. In addition to our current federal appeal in the Ninth Circuit, we are now pursuing action against the tech giant in California state court.
YouTube calls itself a “public forum.” It builds its ENTIRE business model on the claim that it is a “public forum: committed to fostering a community where everyone’s voice can be heard.” Yet, it defrauds the public by censoring speech it doesn’t agree with.
Free speech, especially online, is one of the most important rights of our era, and we intend to fight for it.
We can’t do this alone. Join us NOW and become a critical piece in this fight by donating today.
Every day, PragerU is changing culture with online content that teaches the values that make America the freest and most prosperous nation on earth. Millions of Americans are watching our videos, and minds are changing. We cannot let that stop.
The Left knows how effective we are. That’s why they want to censor us.
PragerU continues to fight online suppression of conservative ideas. Over the past year, we have led the charge in bringing public awareness to the issue of online censorship. Our case has been mentioned in nearly every article on the issue, and has been covered by several media giants, including the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and Buzzfeed.
Over 500,000 Americans have signed our online petition urging Google to end its censorship of conservative ideas. Our goal is to reach 1 million signatures by the time we meet Google in court.
We need your support now more than ever. Please consider making a donation today.
As we continue this important fight – not just for PragerU, but for everyone who uses Google – we need to win in both the court of public opinion, and in the courtroom.
We recently launched a public awareness video to bring much-needed attention to the issue. The video has already hit over 10 million views, but that’s not enough. With your help, millions more will see this critical video and learn about our case.
