Rucka and Nikos interviewed Craig Biddle about his appearance on PragerU. At 31:40 in the podcast Rucka asks: "Do you see Dennis as an ally in the fight for liberty?" He includes some skepticism citing Prager's views on big tech censorship. Perhaps Rucka read something like this quote from Prager's Townhall article called "Thoughts in a Dark Time." Rucka charges Prager with taking steps against property rights (suing Google, for example) and thus questions whether Prager is a true friend of liberty. In reply Biddle points to a certain respect in which Prager is an ally. He says, "I think Dennis and most religious conservatives do really love what they regard America as being." In contrast he describes "a leftist" as someone who "wants to destroy America" and "hates the fact that this country exists." I'm not sure that qualifies as an answer to Rucka's question about liberty. It seems to depend on what Prager "regards America as being." But if he agrees with Ben Shapiro in this PragerU video called "If we lose John Locke, we lose America," there is probably something substantial on which to base an alliance. Also, Prager himself says in this video, "The bigger the state, the less the liberty." (3:00) So it seems he agrees on the value of John Locke and limited government in the fight for liberty and America in general.
