The sheer intolerance of Google for the political Right came to national light when the company fired employee James Damore for articulating basic facts about human biology and sex in the context of diversity at the company.  

Damore’s dismissal reinforced rising concerns that Google is trying to silence conservative voices on its YouTube platform by removing advertising for conservative channel hosts. 

A number of Prager University educational videos, produced by radio host Dennis Prager, were blocked from full distribution on YouTube last year after the content triggered a “restricted” classification.
