On Wednesday, April 10th, PragerU announced that YouTube has placed the video of Candace Owens, Turning Point USA’s Director of Communications, in “restricted mode.”

When YouTube places a video in “restricted mode,” that video may not be seen by everyone who goes on the Youtube website. The restricted video is of the powerful testimony given by Owens to the House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday.

This is not the first time that Youtube put a PragerU video on “restricted mode.”

“Restricted mode” is predominantly used in order to block videos that have been deemed inappropriate, such as pornography or violence.

When YouTube puts a video in “restricted mode,” it means that the video is censored from all users that have enabled the website’s restricted mode feature. This typically includes libraries, schools, public institutions, specifically targeting younger demographics.

PragerU took to Twitter on Wednesday to report the change in status of their video:

“@YouTube clearly has a political bias against conservatives,” said PragerU in another tweet, “It just placed our video of @RealCandaceO in restricted mode.”

Denis Prager spoke of the left’s quickness to shut down other viewpoints last February in an interview with Breitbart News:

“If you are not on the left, you are to be shut down… We have never, ever had anything like this in American history.”

“We are in a dark age because of the left’s control of Silicon Valley, academia, and media,” added Prager, “It’s a dark age that we are living in right now, and it is entirely left-wing induced.”

Charlie Kirk, Turning Point USA’s founder and president, has also addressed the problem of liberal media censorship.

“This is their great offensive to try to silence differing opinion,” Kirk argued. “And make no mistake, it’s not because the conservative voices are offensive. It’s because they are effective.”
