I AM A YOUTUBE fanatic. Anything that’s ever been filmed, it seems, is on YouTube. It’s a gold mine of information and entertainment, something that’s more important than ever in these quarantine days of the Plague Year.
Recently, I found the channel of Ruben the Bulldog. It is very fun, not only due to Reuben himself but to his owner who writes captions that are quite clever.
I sometimes think of getting a dog. Long on the list has been a standard poodle, the big, non-whiny ones. not the little froufrou mutts. But after watching Reuben for a couple of weeks, I think maybe an English bulldog would add to the tone around here.
I’ve never owned a dog in my life.
But Reuben has a certain cachet.
PRAGER UNIVERSITY — PragerU as it’s called — is not a brick-and-mortar institution that offers degrees and such. It’s a media organization best known for its five-minute videos on what should be, but often is not, common-sense issues.
The outfit’s driving force is Dennis Prager who, during the 1990s, had a syndicated television show that I loved to watch when I lived in Houston, Texas. Prager is smart, articulate and entertaining. And he’s a very conservative Jew, so much so that he occasionally gets into controversy with his strict religious notions.
I ignore most of those notions because I really like the videos you find on PragerU’s YouTube channel. YouTube is less enthusiastic and does its best to silence him when possible. He’s currently involved, I believe, in legal action against YouTube’s censorship.
Let’s wish him all the luck.
The above video is a good example of PragerU’s common sense. Democrat “progressives” (insert chortle) advocate plenty of cultural lunacy these days, and one example is that there are oh-so-many sexes. Pick one that you feel is a good fit. Slip it on!
No, really. Don’t laugh. It’s true! They actually think that. And they’ll pound you into the dirt, figuratively or literally, if you say otherwise.
Sane people will tell you there are two sexes, but I maintain there are three. Male, female and deranged. And you cannot choose. The universe deposits you into one of the three categories. It’s out of your hands. With luck, you’re not in the third.
I landed in the first, but the second is pretty sweet too.
A GAY NEW YORK hairstylist named Brandon Straka kicked off the #WalkAway movement with a YouTube video on May 26 of 2018. The movement has since ballooned to enormous proportions. What did Brandon walk away from?
The Democrat Party. Here is his original video.
The grassroots movement is no longer just a YouTube phenomenon. There are rallies and events nationwide on a regular basis. There is a website. The growing number of people abandoning the Democrat Party are notable for their diversity.
They are not just white yokels in flyover country.
There are blacks, whites, Hispanics, gays, lesbians, you name it, and what they have in common is they are waking up to the nefarious realities of today’s Democrat Party.
I walked away in 2008, long before Straka came to his senses.
I’ve watched a number of the #WalkAway videos on YouTube. By far the best I’ve seen is the one here at the top. The eloquent woman is a former Bernie campaign worker, and she speaks not only of her experience but that of her grandfather, a World War II vet who had been a lifelong Democrat and union leader. He walked away in 2016.
Bonus video. How the media lie to us every day. Sad.
THE CONSERVATIVE YouTube channel of PragerU is taking the video-hosting service to court over its blatant, left-wing, shameless censorship. Let us pray for the success of that legal action and that it’s extended to Facebook, Twitter and their unsavory ilk.
As PragerU’s attorney says in the video, this is of vital importance to the survival of the Republic. Meanwhile, a whistle-blower at Google reveals the astounding degree to which that company goes to influence elections and mold American culture.
While hysterical Democrats have writhed on the floor since Trump’s election in 2016 over nonexistent “Russian collusion,” actual election meddling continues at BigTech on a daily basis. Sensible Democrats might consider switching parties as I did in 2008.
You’ll like it over here. The air is fresher. And bluebirds sing.
Alas, the Bolsheviks also control Hollywood and the American educational system. The significance of this is difficult to overestimate.
