  • Young Americans Voted to Ruin Their Lives

    Townhall ^ | 11/22/2022 | Dennis Prager
    This week, The New York Times published a column by a left-wing academic (forgive the redundancy), John Della Volpe, director of polling at the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics. In his first sentence, Mr. Della Volpe reveals his politics. He described young Americans as "stressed and sickened by thoughts of their rights and democracy slipping away." That is what Harvard and just about every other university tells America's young people: "Because of the Right, you should be stressed and sickened -- the Right is taking away your rights and destroying your democracy." The terrible irony is that there is...
  • My Black Uber Driver in Philly

    10/25/2022 7:55:52 AM PDT · by rktman · 46 replies ^ | 10/25/2022 | Dennis Prager
    My Salem radio talk-show host colleagues and I went from city to city in "battleground" states to speak on the forthcoming elections -- specifically about how vital it is for the survival of America that the Left and its political party be defeated. (I went to Chicago and Burlington for other reasons.) Two reflections: one from Philadelphia and the other from Chicago: I then took an Uber to the venue. My driver was a black man, and as I almost always do with strangers, I engaged in conversation with him. He turned out to be particularly inquisitive about me and...
  • PragerU Football Team Still Dead Last In NCAA Rankings

    09/26/2022 4:00:32 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 26 replies ^ | 9-25-2022 | Babylon Bee Staff
    GAINESVILLE, FL — Despite installing a new "Trinity Wishbone" offense during fall camp, PragerU has once again found itself dead last in the NCAA after a 94-0 drubbing at the hands of the Florida Gators. "I don't know where it went wrong. We had a really great week of practice, all in easily digestible, five-minute chunks" said Mr. Prager in a post-game interview. "But at the end of the day, I'm 74 years old and no amount of knowledge about the benefits of free-market capitalism could help me avoid the 23 sacks we gave up today." PragerU had reportedly entered...

  • The Age of the Absurd

    05/03/2022 4:32:59 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | May 3, 2022 | Dennis Prager
    The West has gone through many eras — the so-called Dark Ages, the Renaissance, the Age of Reason, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Age and the Post-Modern. The present era is the Age of the Absurd. In terms of the absurdities the cultural elites believe, and have convinced masses of people to believe, there has never been a time like today. Here is a list of the most ridiculous that immediately come to mind. No. 1: Men give birth. Heading the list has to be the radical redefinition — indeed, denial of — sex and gender, leading to such reality-defying statements...
  • What the Left Has Done to Women’s Desires

    The Daily Signal ^ | April 12, 2022 | Dennis Prager
    As I’ve documented on a number of occasions, the left ruins everything it touches. There is no exception. From universities to high schools and now including even elementary schools, to late-night TV, to sports, to the arts and, increasingly, science, the left is a destruction machine. And nowhere is this damage more evident or tragic than with regard to women. In fact, nothing demonstrates the power of left-wing ideology as much as what this ideology has done to women. So powerful is leftist ideology, it is more powerful than women’s nature. Here are five examples: 1) Desire to Bond With...
  • COVID-19 and the Failure of America's Major Religions

    02/15/2022 4:07:21 AM PST · by Kaslin · 30 replies ^ | February 15, 20 | Dennis Prager
    For two years, Americans have been partially or entirely deprived of fundamental freedoms -- of assembly, speech, religious liberty, making a living, a child's right to an education, access to early treatment for a potentially deadly virus, and more -- for the first time in American history. That half of America, especially its elites, has either made peace with or supported these deprivations of freedom is why many of us worry about America's future as a free society. Even more concerning has been the reactions of America's great religions -- specifically, Catholics, Protestants, Mormons (Latter-day Saints) and Jews. The government...
  • The (Crappy) Year We Just Lived Through

    As this is my last column of 2021, I thought it would be worthwhile to review some of the most important observations I made over the course of an awful year. I hope you agree, and wish you -- and our country -- a happier New Year. JAN. 5: These past few years have taught me not to so quickly judge the quiet Germans, Russians, etc. Of course, I still judge Germans who helped the Nazis and Germans who in any way hurt Jews. But the Germans who did nothing? Not so fast. What has changed my thinking has been...
  • Gay Pariahs, Unvaccinated Pariahs, the Left, and the Truth

    11/16/2021 4:03:50 AM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | November 16, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    Last week in an interview on Newsmax, I said: "During the AIDS crisis, can you imagine if gay men and intravenous drug users, who were the vast majority of the people with AIDS, had they been pariahs the way the non-vaccinated are? But it would have been inconceivable. And it should have been inconceivable; they should not have been made pariahs. But this (banning those not vaccinated from bars, restaurants, salons, etc.) is kosher, this is OK." The reason I raised the comparison of gay men and IV drug users as pariahs to the current-day unvaccinated is that I took...
  • Dennis Prager has COVID-19, says he deliberately sought infection to gain natural immunity

    Washington Times ^ | 10-18-21 | Valerie Richardson
    Conservative radio host Dennis Prager announced Monday that he is recovering from the novel coronavirus, saying that he deliberately sought to contract the virus to acquire natural immunity, instead of getting vaccinated. “I’m broadcasting from my home because I’m not going into the station as I have COVID,” said Mr. Prager on his YouTube show. “I tested positive last week, and I have been steadily improving. At no point was I in danger of hospitalization.”
  • And Jews Will Still Vote Democrat

    Town Hall ^ | 10/16/21 | Dennis Prager
    There is almost nothing Democrats can do to damage America, or Israel, that would change most American Jews' political leanings. The latest example took place just last week. A college student speaking to the vice president of the United States, a Democrat, condemned America for supporting Israel, and charged Israel with committing "ethnic genocide" against Palestinians. Harris's response? "Your voice, your perspective, your experience, your truth cannot be suppressed, and it must be heard." It was indeed the student's truth -- which means it was a lie. "Your truth" always means "a lie." When a person says something that is...
  • Who Would Hide a Jew if Nazis Took Over America?

    09/28/2021 3:24:45 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 63 replies ^ | September 28, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    There is something about most Jews that few non-Jews know: We Jews often ask ourselves if a non-Jew in our lives would hide us in the event of a Nazi-like outbreak. I don't know if young Jews think about this, but nearly all Jews who grew up in the decades following the Holocaust often wondered: Would this non-Jew hide me? I have thought about this all my life because the question, "Who hid Jews?" is one of the most important questions anyone -- Jew or non-Jew -- needs to think about. That question is far more important than "Who didn't...
  • Colorblind Is the Moral Ideal

    09/07/2021 3:15:19 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 17 replies ^ | September 7, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    There is little that reveals the immorality and dishonesty of the left more than its labeling the term "colorblind" racist. Here are just a few of countless examples: The University of California publishes a list of "microaggressions" -- terms and ideas it considers racist -- that white people should avoid using. The list includes the term "colorblindness" as well as statements such as "there is only one race, the human race." The left's racist war on colorblindness is everywhere. Psychology Today published an article by a psychology professor titled, "Colorblind Ideology Is a Form of Racism." HuffPost published a piece...
  • The Best Thing Most Americans Can Do to Make America Better

    07/13/2021 3:33:17 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 16 replies ^ | July 13, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    Some think tank or polling organization should ask 1,000 Americans: What is the best thing most Americans can do to make the country better? Presumably, those most influenced by their schooling and by the media would answer something along the lines of: "fight racism" or "work to reduce inequality." Whatever the specific answer, most young people -- and those older who lean left -- would most likely respond by citing some form of activism. Since the early 1960s and '70s, a moral life has been defined as engaging in activism. One improves America -- indeed, one becomes a good person...
  • Affluence + Secularism = Boredom = Leftism

    04/27/2021 3:39:22 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | April 27, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    Just as physicists look for equations to explain the natural world, I have always thought it useful to look for equations to explain human nature. For example, in my book on happiness, I offer this equation: U = I - R. Unhappiness = Image - Reality. The difference between the images we have for our life and the reality of our life is one way of measuring how much unhappiness we experience. Here, I offer another theorem, this time to help explain leftism. A + S = B = L Affluence + Secularism = Boredom = Leftism The search for...
  • Mask-Wearing Represents Fear and Blind Obedience, Not Science

    04/06/2021 4:36:51 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 54 replies ^ | April 6, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    When I see people walking outside, often alone with no one anywhere near them, wearing a mask, my primary reactions are disappointment and sadness. I am disappointed because I expected better from my fellow Americans. I never thought most Americans would be governed by irrational fears and unquestioning obedience to authority. I have come to realize that I had a somewhat romanticized view of my countrymen. Had you told me a year ago that nearly every American in nearly every metropolitan area would cover their faces for over a year because one man, one political party and the media told...

    Dennis invites you into his home as he conducts a virtual Passover Seder (recorded April 2020). Watch and learn as Dennis explains the meaning of the rituals, but if you want to participate along with Dennis, you’ll need the standard Passover accoutrements (one per person in your household): 1) Matzo 2) Salt water 3) Parsley 4) A hard-boiled egg 5) Horseradish 6) Charoset — a mix of nuts, raisins, and honey 7) Haggadah
  • Trip to Vietnam Reconfirmed My Hatred of Communism

    02/02/2021 5:30:04 AM PST · by Kaslin · 69 replies ^ | February 2, 2021 | Dennis Prager
    Ten years ago, I wrote a column reflecting on my reactions to visiting Vietnam. Given the lack of revulsion to, and even flirtation with, communism (or its more mildly named version, socialism) among many young Americans, it is worth revisiting. It was difficult to control my emotions -- specifically, my anger -- during my visit to Vietnam. The more I came to admire the Vietnamese people -- their intelligence, love of life, dignity and hard work -- the more rage I felt toward the communists who brought them (and, of course, us Americans) so much suffering in the second half...

    The Epoch Times ^ | January 15, 2021 | Jan Jekielek
    On the heels of the breach of the U.S. Capitol, Big Tech companies have swiftly censored the President, the emerging social media platform Parler was effectively shut down, and there are growing calls for no-fly lists. Does the assault on the Capitol warrant such a response? “We’re living in a gigantic lie that is reminiscent of the Reichstag fire,” argues talk show host Dennis Prager, founder of Prager University. This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

    American Greatness ^ | 01/06/2021 | Dennis Prager
    As my listeners and readers can hopefully attest, I have been on a lifelong quest to understand human nature and human behavior. I am sad to report that I have learned more in the last few years, particularly in 2020, than in any equivalent period of time. One of the biggest revelations concerns a question that has always plagued me: How does one explain the “good German,” the term used to describe the average, presumably decent German, who did nothing to hurt Jews but also did nothing to help them and did nothing to undermine the Nazi regime? The same...
