Last week, four young blacks -- two males, both 18 years old; and two females, 18 and 24 years-old -- kidnapped a mentally disabled 18-year-old white boy and tortured him for 24 hours. Among other things, they kicked him, beat him, cut his scalp, made him drink from the toilet and made him kiss the floor while saying he loves black people. ...Read more
Where I live (near Los Angeles) you can drive for blocks without seeing a single home with Christmas lights, let alone a manger scene or some other religious decoration. And you can drive miles and see fewer than a dozen.
I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in an area where most residents were either Italian or Jewish. So many homes had ...Read more
My last column was titled "Is Donald Trump a Misogynist?" After reading reactions throughout the internet, I realize how important it is to elaborate on the subject of how men view women.
One of the proofs that higher education makes those who attend college more foolish, more naive and often even more ignorant about life than those who never ...Read more
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
If You Leave this Farm: The Dream Is DestroyedAmanda Farmer
A Memoir about courage, hope, and resilience. The story powerfully shows the internal struggle and conflict between personal desires, the crushing weight of constant submission to a father's misguided use of God-given authority, and the need to be accepted by one's ...
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
