  • Gay Pariahs, Unvaccinated Pariahs, the Left, and the Truth

    Townhall.com ^ | 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

    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

    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?

    Townhall.com ^ | 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

    Townhall.com ^ | 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

    Townhall.com ^ | 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

    Townhall.com ^ | 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...

    Townhall.com ^ | 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

    Townhall.com ^ | 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...

    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.
  • Dennis Prager: I Now Better Understand the ‘Good German’ Under the Nazi Regime

    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...

    Vanity | Dec 22 2020 | self
    I’m addressing the general topic of censorship, specifically YouTube censorship. I’ve done a couple of tests today and it did not turn out as expected. Prager says many of his videos are not shown on YouTube. But I checked two that he said were not available, and they are available. Gateway Pundit says that the opening statement of Trump’s lawyer, Jesse Binnall, before the US Senate has been removed by YouTube. However I can find it on YouTube. Maybe conservatives have been too quick to criticize before getting the facts. Maybe YouTube is suddenly cleaning up it’s act because we...
  • What American Schools Should Teach About Race, Racism and Slavery

    Townhall.com ^ | November 17, 2020 | Dennis Prager
    Regarding race and much else, America's students are not taught history. In fact, they are not taught; they are indoctrinated. With anti-Americanism. The purpose of all teaching about race in American schools is to engender contempt for America. They are, therefore, "taught" the lies of The New York Times' "1619 Project" -- that the United States was founded to preserve and protect slavery -- and of such works as Robin DiAngelo's "White Fragility." So, then, what should American schools teach about race? They should, of course, teach students about slavery and racism. But, if truth and moral clarity are to...

    Dennis Prager Show ^ | 9/15/2020 | Dennis Prager
    All of my life, I have said that the left’s moral compass is broken. And all of my life, I was wrong. Why I was wrong explains both the left and the moral crisis we are in better than almost any other explanation. I was wrong because in order to have a broken moral compass, you need to have a moral compass to begin with. But the left doesn’t have one. This is not meant as an attack. It is a description of reality. The left regularly acknowledges that it doesn’t think in terms of good and evil. Most of...

    Townhall.com ^ | September 1, 2020 | Dennis Prager
    Four months ago, I wrote a column titled "The Worldwide Lockdown May Be the Greatest Mistake in History." I explained that "'mistake' and 'evil' are not synonyms. The lockdown is a mistake; the Holocaust, slavery, communism, fascism, etc., were evils. Massive mistakes are made by arrogant fools; massive evils are committed by evil people." Regarding the economic catastrophe in America and around the world -- especially among the world's poor who are dependent upon America and other first-world countries for their income through exports and tourism -- I wrote, "It is panic and hysteria, not the coronavirus, that created this...

    What are the two most hated countries in the world? America and Israel. Who hates both America and Israel? The left (and Islamists). And why is that? Why does the left (not liberals, the left hate America and Israel? In "Why the Jews; The Reason for Antisemitism," a book I co-authored with Rabbi Joseph Telushkin in 1983 (the latest edition was published in 2016), we compared hatred of America with hatred of Jews. This is what we wrote. It precisely explains what is happening in America today. "Perhaps the best way to understand the admiration and resentment elicited by the...
  • Are Endless Lockdowns the Result of Malice or Stupidity?

    PJ Media ^ | 10 May 2020 | David Solway
    In a harrowing article for PJ Media, Dennis Prager argues that the COVID-19 global lockdown is “possibly, the worst mistake the world has ever made,” leading to a mortality rate eclipsing anything the virus could have delivered. Widespread famine in Third World Countries and extreme poverty across the globe are now imminent, “all because of the lockdowns, not the virus.” A study released on May 4 by the nonprofit research institute Just Facts confirms Prager’s argument, concluding that “the total loss of life from all societal responses to this disease is likely to be more than 90 times greater than...

    The idea that the worldwide lockdown of virtually every country other than Sweden may have been an enormous mistake strikes many -- including world leaders; most scientists, especially health officials, doctors and epidemiologists; those who work in major news media; opinion writers in those media; and the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of people who put their faith in these people -- as so preposterous as to be immoral. Timothy Egan of The New York Times described Republicans who wish to enable their states to open up as "the party of death." That's the way it is today on...
