Columnist E. J. Dionne is exemplary of everything wrong with liberals

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

If you want to understand the moral sickness at the heart of leftism, read the first paragraph of the most recent column by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne:

"It's never right to call other human beings 'animals.' It's not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior of a given individual or group, no matter...Read more

Liberals have destroyed our houses of higher learning

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

"Cornell Student Presents Senior Thesis in Her Underwear"

The most remarkable thing about that headline is that not one reader will think it's a joke. That, my friends, is further proof of the low esteem in which most Americans hold our universities.

The left has rendered our universities, in the description of Harvard professor Steven Pinker,...Read more

Liberalism is founded on the rejection of wisdom and God

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

There is more knowledge available today than ever before in history. But few would argue people are wiser than ever before.

On the contrary, many of us would argue that we are living in a particularly foolish time -- a period that is largely wisdom-free, especially among those with the most knowledge: the best educated.

The fact that one of ...Read more

Fear of leftism, that most dynamic religion of the past 100 years

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

The dominant force in America and many other Western countries today is fear of the left.

This is a result of the fact that the most dynamic religion of the past 100 years has been neither Christianity nor Islam. It has been leftism. Whoever does not recognize this does not understand the contemporary world.

Leftism -- in its incarnations, ...Read more

Fake news! Or why I can't crack the liberal New York Times Bestseller List, part two

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

In my last column I used my recently published book as evidence that The New York Times best-seller list is not a best-seller list.

I pointed out that the book, "The Rational Bible: Exodus," the first volume of my commentary on the first five books of the Bible (the Torah), did not appear on The New York Times best-seller list even though it ...Read more

Fake news! Or why I can't crack the liberal New York Times Bestseller List

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

About half the American people do not believe the mainstream media tell the truth. They believe the media are more interested in promoting their left-wing views than reporting the truth.

I am, I note with sadness, a member of that half.

Here is but one more example: The New York Times best-seller list.

As a writer (who, for the record, had a ...Read more

The left must be crushed if we're to save American and Western civilization

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism -- not liberalism -- is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the left touches it ruins.

So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the left and the Democratic Party:

The most obvious -- and, therefore, the one more and Americans can resonate ...Read more

America must be a Christian nation

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Many years ago, I attended a dinner at a wealthy man's New York City condo with, among others, one of the most prominent and influential conservatives in American life. I admired this man then and I admire him now (he has since passed on). He was a major force for good in America.

At one point, the subjects of God and religion came up, and I ...Read more

Trump's infidelity is meaningless because the liberal media is full of hypocrites

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Some years ago, I wrote a column about adultery and politicians. In light of the Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal interviews concerning their alleged (and probable) affairs with President Donald Trump, it is time to revisit the subject.

I do not agree with those -- right or left, religious or secular -- who contend that adultery invalidates a ...Read more

I know nothing about how it feels to lose a child to senseless violence, but I'll talk about it anyway

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

In decades of writing columns, I have taken risks but perhaps never one as big this: writing a column to and about parents who have lost a child. I can well imagine that the first reaction of any parent who has lost a child will be: Why does this guy, who hasn't gone through what I have, think he has something to say about the death of a child? ...Read more

Jews, blacks and latinos in America are the luckiest in the world

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

At The City College of New York in the late 1930s, my father, an Orthodox Jew, wrote his senior class thesis on anti-Semitism in America. He delineated common realities of the era, such as Jews' admission to law firms, country clubs and colleges being denied or restricted, and various other manifestations of popular and institutional anti-...Read more

The day America abandons Israel will be the beginning of the end of America as we know it

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

In speeches to fellow Jews around America, I often point out that many American Jews are experiencing cognitive dissonance. The institution Jews most admire -- the university -- turns out to be the most significant source of Israel hatred in America and the rest of the West. At the same time, the people many Jews most distrust -- Christians (...Read more

Liberals don't fight evil; they fight those who do

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Why does the left oppose allowing a small number of highly trained teachers and other adults who work at schools to arm themselves?

When asked, their response is consistent: "It's a crazy idea." And "We need fewer guns, not more guns."

A New York Times editorial offered the following argument against having any armed teachers: "Nationwide ...Read more
