  • Samantha Bee launches a scathing, yet impressively stupid, attack on Prager U

    Samantha Bee got her start on the Jon Stewart show. She is a worthy heir, for she’s mastered his techniques of pretending that snarky, fact-free comments about conservatives constitute news or astute political analysis. On Wednesday, Bee spent almost seven minutes hurling insults at Dennis Prager, at Prager U, and at the people who have appeared in Prager U videos. It’s clear that the people behind the show are panicking about how effectively the Prager U videos counter the leftist narrative that’s mainlined into the American brain through academia, “news,” and entertainment media. In fact, progressives are right to panic....
  • Why Private Speech Doesn't Tell Us About a Person's Character

    Very few things I have said have elicited as much negative attention as this: What people say in private tells little, if anything, about their character. Left-wing critics have had a field day mocking me (mockery is the left's substitute for argument), but even some religious conservatives have taken issue with me (without the mockery) -- don't I know that it is precisely how we act in private that most clearly reveals our character? This issue, of course, originally arose as a result of what then-reality TV host Donald Trump said in private to then-"Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush in...

    In my last column, “Newsweek Hits a New Low,” I wrote about Newsweek’s dishonest description of what I had said on one of my weekly PragerU “Fireside Chats.” A viewer had asked me to respond to a statement Anne Frank made in her epic Holocaust diary. Frank said, “Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.” The Newsweek headline, “Conservative Radio Host Ridicules Anne Frank,” was simply a lie. In order for readers to appreciate the level of mendacity, I had my entire response transcribed and placed it in the column. A few days later I received...

    Here's a riddle: What do Victor Davis Hanson, Dennis Prager and Ricky Gervais have in common? Hanson published an excellent piece at National Review online on Jan. 7. Titled "The Steele Dossier Bacillus," Hanson summarizes the evident defects in the substance of the dossier compiled by British former spy Christopher Steele as well as defects in its use to obtain surveillance warrants from the FISA court. Steele was known to be "a pathological liar," Hanson notes. But the "fanciful" (translation: false information contained in the dossier spread like wildfire because so many on the left -- including Hillary Clinton and...

    If decent people working in mainstream American media want to know why many Americans do not trust them and are willing to use the term "fake news" to describe the mainstream media, I offer one of the most glaring examples of a lie in my lifetime. Last week, Newsweek headlined the following: "Conservative Radio Host Ridicules Anne Frank: 'I Don't Get My Wisdom From Teenagers.'" Now, imagine how that must have struck any reader not familiar with the "conservative radio host" or with what he actually said. "Ridicule Anne Frank" -- what kind of terrible human being would do that?...

    The New York Times’ Nellie Bowles has discovered that PragerU is making inroads with teenagers and she’s not happy. She's written a long article, a combination of honest facts and oozing snideness, that reveals her disdain for and fear of conservative values. Dennis Prager matters because he is persuasive. In the early 2000s, as I was going through the process of disengaging from a Democrat party I realized bore no relationship to my values, he helped me create a framework for my new worldview. I’ve also loved his PragerU videos. While open about their biases, they are temperate in tone...

    There are two primary reasons it is so difficult, if not impossible, to define leftism. One is that it ultimately stands for chaos: -- Open borders. -- "Nonbinary" genders. -- Nonsensical and scatological "art." -- "Music" without tonality, melody or harmony. -- Drag Queen Story Hour for 5-year-olds. -- Rejection of the concept of better or worse civilizations. -- Rejection of the concept of better or worse art. -- Removal of Shakespeare's picture from a university English department because he was a white male. -- The end of all use of fossil fuels -- even in transportation (as per the...

    The editor-in-chief of Christianity Today, Mark Galli, wrote an editorial calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. In my view, this editorial only serves to confirm one of the sadder realizations of my life: that religious conviction guarantees neither moral clarity nor common sense. The gist of the editorial -- and of most religious and conservative opposition to President Trump -- is that any good the president has done is dwarfed by his character defects. This is an amoral view that says more about Galli than it does about the president. He and the people who share his opinion...

    As the undisputed star of the new film No Safe Spaces – the hit documentary on academia’s descent into Orwellian tyranny features a quick shot of a lawyer letter I wrote to some collegiate gulag apparatchiks – I wholeheartedly recommend that you go see it. Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager take you on a guided tour of the insanity and evil that has gripped academia, and it’s utterly terrifying. You need to see it not merely to gape at the freak show but to learn what’s coming for society as a whole. The dreary conformity factories that pretend to be providing...

    No Safe Spaces (movie) ^ | Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager
    SYNOPSIS The First Amendment and the very idea of free speech are under attack in America today. A growing number of Americans don't believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for "safe spaces" in which people won't be offended by ideas they may find troubling. But is that what America is about? In No Safe Spaces, comedian and podcast king Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager travel the country, talking to experts on the right and left, tour college campuses and examine their...

    The entire American left -- the mainstream media, the environmentalist movement and Democratic politicians in particular -- are celebrating the involvement of teenagers and even younger children in protesting the world's "inaction" with regard to global warming. And not just the American left, of course. The left throughout the world is celebrating. A 16-year-old Swedish girl whose contempt for adults is breathtaking is an international hero. Congressional Democrats invited her to testify in Congress, and the United Nations has likewise invited her. The mayor and city council of New York City further politicized their city's public schools by allowing students...

    Imagine a group of people who work to destroy Italy because, they claim, Italy's origins are illegitimate. Imagine further that these people maintain that of all the countries in the world, only Italy is illegitimate. And then imagine that these people vigorously deny they are in any way anti-Italian. Would you believe them? Or would you dismiss their argument as not only dishonest but absurd? Substitute "Israel" for "Italy" and "Jew" for "Italian" and you'll understand the dishonesty and absurdity of the argument that one can be anti-Zionist but not anti-Semitic. But that is precisely what anti-Zionists say. They argue...

    Every non-liberal leftist — that is, nearly every Democrat running for president, New York Times and Washington Post columnist, CNN and MSNBC host, and your left-wing brother-in-law — labels every Trump supporter and, of course, President Donald Trump, a “racist.” And they don’t stop there. Leftists don’t only label the half of the country that supports the president “racist,” they label all whites and America itself “racist.” If your son or daughter attends or recently attended an American university, it is close to certain he or she was repeatedly told that America and all whites are racist. According to the...

    Last week, at the invitation of Sen. Ted Cruz, I spoke to the Senate Judiciary Committee about Google's having placed more than 60 Prager University videos on its restricted list. Any family that filters out pornography and violence cannot see those particular videos on YouTube (which is owned by Google); nor can any school or library. This statement is as much about what I and PragerU stand for as it is about Google. Those interested in viewing the presentation can do so here: It is an honor to be invited to speak in the United States Senate. But I wish...

    Before the Senate on Tuesday, Dennis Prager, the founder of the conservative behemoth PragerU and its affiliated YouTube Channels, railed against the video-sharing service for restricting access to roughly one-fifth of his video content for being “mature contents” considered inappropriate for younger audiences. Prager testified that YouTube routinely suppresses conservative perspectives such as his on its website and bars “restricted mode” users from viewing roughly twenty percent of the 320 videos uploaded by his channel. Censored content includes videos on the Ten Commandments and the history of Israel, according to Prager. “We have repeatedly asked Google why our videos are...

    Subtitle: The Framers’ Electoral College. If I could get through to Dennis Prager’s radio show, I’d encourage him to read Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist No. 68 on Presidential elections. Should he do so, I’m confident he would give it airtime. I also believe he would edit his Prager U videos on the Electoral College (EC). While they are informative, his videos do not address the EC’s purposes, the first of which is to appoint men preeminent in their ability and public virtue. Of equal importance is that they arrive in office without political debts to pay. The Framers’ President, like the...

    America’s enemies are on notice: The president is no longer an eloquent pushover professor-president but a ruthless real estate developer and television network brawler-president whose principle weapons are blunt candor and walking away from the table. Trump is responding to both his domestic political opponents and America’s actual enemies with the same tactics: blunt, repetitive messaging and use of the walk-off. He is sometimes rude, often full of unnecessary slashes, but always direct. (It often seems as if Trump answers more questions from reporters in a walk to the helicopter than President Barack Obama did in formal press conferences.) And...
