Conservative non-profit media house PragerU recently posted a tweet about racism that has left the internet shocked. "Young people are enamored with 'anti-racist' rhetoric because they think they are fighting racist systems in America. The TRUTH is they are fighting America itself and the very values the country was founded on," PragerU posted on Twitter. The tweet preceded the release of a new episode of 'Fireside Chat' hosted by Dennis Prager, the prominent conservative talk show host. 

It is believed that the think tank, which is supported by Candace Owens, Tucker Carlson and Ben Shapiro, wanted to convey the message that youth awareness against racism is against the country's core values. However, their tweet was interpreted in a different way by netizens, who insisted that "the values the country was founded on were racist". Many even perceived the tweet as a 'joke' that has backfired due to the framing of the sentence.

Twitter users, including prominent personalities, reacted to the PragerU tweet as well as Dennis Prager's talk about the 'anti-racist rhetoric'. Streamer and political commentator Hasan Abi responded to the tweet saying, "uhhhhh hate to say it but prageru popped off on this one". "I've seen some clownishly inept social media operations. But none hold a candle the persistent self-ownership of PragerU," tweeted lawyer Ari Cohn.

Another user pointed out, "PragerU says pro-racist values are 'the very values the country was founded on'." "so you agree? you think america was founded on racism?" a third user asked. A fourth user joked, "PragerU accidentally snitching on themselves." "PragerU went from far-right to far-left so suddenly, we all got whiplash," said yet another tweet.



 



 



 



 



 

However, amid the confusion, PragerU made their stance against racism clearer in further tweets, where they spoke against critical race theory and "its repackaged racism". "Racism is evil. The amount of evil being done in the *name* of "anti-racism", like Critical Race Theory and its repackaged racism, is incalculable," they tweeted.
