You have to marvel at the ease with which our fellow Americans who call themselves progressive label those with whom they differ as sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist and bigoted.
I always wonder: Do they believe it? Or do they say it because they lack intellectual arguments?
I have come to believe that both are ...Read more
Many Hillary Clinton voters have ceased communicating with friends, and even family members, who voted for Donald Trump. It is so common that The New York Times published a front-page article on the subject headlined, "Political Divide Splits Relationships -- and Thanksgiving, Too."
The article begins with three stories:
"Matthew Horn, a ...Read more
Feminism claims to stand for two things above all: women's equality and enabling women to be strong.
Regarding the first aim, no decent man or woman opposes the concept of equality of the sexes. But people who do not call themselves feminists have a problem with the feminist notion of equality: Most feminists have conflated equality and ...Read more
A highly respected American rabbi named Dr. Irving "Yitz" Greenberg used to tell American Jewish audiences, whether Reform, Conservative Orthodox, "I don't care what denomination you're a member of, as long as you're ashamed of it."
I have adopted that phrase, and I apply it to religions generally. One could just as easily say to Catholics, ...Read more
It is very hard to publicly affirm a position for nearly a year and to then, at the last minute, change one's mind.
Nevertheless, even as late as Election Day itself, I wish to address those conservatives and Republicans who have declared themselves Never-Trumpers.
I was one of you in vigorously opposing Trump's nomination -- on my national ...Read more
Three months ago, I wrote a column refuting the claim repeatedly made by supporters of Hillary Clinton that having a woman president -- specifically, Hillary Clinton -- would be a terrific thing for girls and young women.
In light of how much more we now know about Clinton's activities while secretary of state and the renewal by the FBI of its ...Read more
Last week, The Wall Street Journal wrote an editorial about YouTube restricting access to 16 videos -- down from 21 -- that were created and posted online by my nonprofit educational organization, Prager University. The subheading read, "YouTube thinks Dennis Prager's videos may be dangerous." The Journal said:
"Tech giants like Google and ...Read more
There are many good conservatives who are Never-Trumpers, and there are many good conservatives who will vote for Donald Trump. Eight months ago, I warned that conservatives must resist gratuitous hatred or they will destroy themselves more effectively than the left ever could on its own.
I used the term "gratuitous hatred" because it is the ...Read more
Regarding Donald Trump's private sexual comments: We are living through a national hysteria.
To understand how and why, it is necessary to understand the indispensable role hysteria plays on the left. The left is always in major crisis mode. And, in nearly every case, the crisis is either wildly exaggerated or simply false.
The overwhelming media consensus regarding the first presidential debate -- Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton and Lester Holt -- is that Clinton won.
If she did win it was because Trump, after a strong opening 30 minutes, allowed himself to get baited into emotional and tendentious self-defense.
And because the media have decided to focus on ...Read more
Dennis Prager is off. The following is a column by Stephen Moore.
Someone might want to inform Hillary Clinton that greed and envy are two of the seven deadly sins.
Her new revised tax plan would raise the estate tax to as high as 65 percent -- up from 40 percent, where it is today. She would also apply this hated death tax to as many ...Read more
There are many recent developments in the godless West. To name a few:
--The Supreme Court of Italy last week ruled that public masturbation is legal (except in front of minors).
--The New York City Council voted in May that public urination is not a criminal act.
--The San Francisco City Council decided, by one vote, to continue the city's ...Read more
