I think Dennis Prager is right. If the likes of You Tube, Facebook and Twitter are just technology companies offering users a forum, as they claim, then they have no business censoring any content which is otherwise legal. That IS an infringement of the First Amendment. If Dennis Prager takes this all the way to the Supreme Court and wins, it will be a significant victory for free speech. I wish him well.

As much as I hate jewtoob, there is no "First Amendment" protections to be had on a private website. The First Amendment only prevents the government from enacting laws preventing the exercise thereof.

So ... while jewtoob can censor whatever they want, the government cannot pass a law to do the same thing.

The only solution is the free market and finding another place that will host the videos.

There is however protection from businesses discriminating against consumers, case and point, the phone and ISP companies isn't allow to block phone calls, and websites they don't like or agree with. I think there is a strong argument to be made for Facebook, YouTube, Host Services, and Google to be regulated as public utilities, through anti-trust laws.

The courts have ruled that businesses like eharmony are obligated to have sections catering to those seeking same-sex partners and that cake shops are obligated to produce artistic creations for same-sex wedding ceremonies. The legal precedent has been set that once a company offers their product or service to the public they are compelled to cater to all equally, even if it means they must adjust their product or even create a new product to do so. They based these decisions on the Bill of Rights, so it has to go both ways or neither way.

Let's face it, google is a 3 letter government agency front company.

Since YouTube is so large, a case regarding anti-trust laws could be made.

Why not? If I have a meeting hall, I can't decide who to rent it to? If NAMBLA turn up am I not allowed to tell them to go fuck themselves?

That IS an infringement of the First Amendment.

No it's not. Go read the first amendment.

I'd say it'll be a loss for freedom of association.

NAMBLA probably is a bad comparison, as child molestation is still a crime. Mind you, the goal on the left is to get conservative / right thought to be classified as criminal, at which point everything is fair game. See also "Punch a Nazi" and the ever widening goalposts on who is accused of being a Nazi.

Dennis Prager is Jewish, so maybe there isn't some vast Jew conspiracy?

Lots of voaters have made so many mental gymnastics to blame the Jews for everything.

It's the same thing as when sjws blame whites for everything bad In the multiverse.

He’s a fucking neocon. The whole point of neoconservatives is to funnel the American right into a Zionist, pro-Israel, pro-Jewish banker coalition. Where the fuck have you been the past 30 years? Why the fuck do you think Trump is getting so much pushback from “establishment” Republicans? Dennis Prager is just as much the enemy as any communist Jew, because they have the same goal, namely, Jewish ethnic dominance.

Seriously, how the fuck can we win with all these useful idiots floating around?

Free speech also includes the freedom of not saying what you don't want to say. Forcing someone to act politically correct is an attack on free speech. Youtube has lots of issues, unrelated to PragerU. That's why we try to avoid them.

PragerU is BS, btw. Still, they are allowed to voice that BS opinion. I don't even know what their problem is, their videos can be watched without any restriction.

This is just an attempt to make them look as if they were libertarian/freedom centered. They're far from it.
