Radio host Dennis Prager and PragerU, the nonprofit he co-founded, are swinging back at “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee’s claim that he is “dangerous” for America’s youth.

“She is right about one thing: we are dangerous to the left, and you can help us continue our impact,” PragerU responded Thursday on Facebook to a nearly seven-minute screed on the “extreme” politics of Mr. Prager. “It’s clear that the left can no longer ignore us.”

Ms. Bee’s TBS show warned viewers Wednesday that Mr. Prager, podcast giant Adam Carolla, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld, Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs” fame, and others are tricking young people into believing conservative “propaganda.”

She also sent out a series of tweets to further explain her fears.

“Prager U is actually dangerous,” she tweeted Wednesday evening. “They’re reaching a new, younger audience with bull—-t conservative propaganda. They trick kids into thinking their videos are educational even though Prager U is as much of a real college as Monsters University.”

The nonprofit organization is no stranger to controversy. It has battled with social media outlets for years over its popular videos, which promote Judeo-Christian values and America’s core principles. 

In October 2016, for instance, YouTube put 21 of its videos in “restricted mode” for objectionable content.

Some of the videos:

  • Why Don’t Feminists Fight for Muslim Women?
  • Who’s More Pro-Choice: Europe or America?
  • The Most Important Question About Abortion
  • Why Do People Become Islamic Extremists?

“Clearly, the left is scared of PragerU and we must be doing something right!” PragerU tweeted Thursday.
