Some on the Left Now Criticize the Students They Created

Tue, Mar 14, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

In the last few weeks, there has been a spate of columns by writers on the left condemning the left-wing college students who riot, take over university buildings and shout down speakers with whom they differ. These condemnations, coming about 50 years too late, should not be taken seriously. Take New York Times columnist Frank Bruni. His latest column is filled...

A Nation of Immigrants — Only If They Assimilate

Tue, Feb 28, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

I am writing this column in Japan, a country whose crime rate is the lowest among countries with large populations. I asked my Japanese translator, a middle-aged woman, what she thought. “Why is there is so little crime in Japan?” I asked. Without taking a moment to reflect, she responded, “Because we don’t allow...

Note to the Left: Four Years Ago, Conservatives Were Just as Depressed

Tue, Feb 14, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

Here’s a news flash for Democrats and other Americans on the left: Four years ago, when Barack Obama was re-elected president, conservatives were just as depressed as you are now that Hillary Clinton lost and Donald Trump won. I describe this as news because this undoubtedly surprises many of you. You probably never gave a moment’s thought to how...

Audi: The Car for the Unhappy Woman

Tue, Feb 7, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

In the Audi Super Bowl ad, a male voice in grave tones says: “What do I tell my daughter? “Do I tell that her grandpa is worth more than her grandma? “That her dad is worth more than her mom? “Do I tell her that despite her education, her drive, her skills, her intelligence, she will automatically be valued as less than every man she ever...

Whatever Happened to “The Party of the Little Guy”?

Mon, Feb 6, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

Democrats have always identified themselves as “the party of the little guy,” but in 2016 they lost tens-of-millions of aggrieved, out-of-luck voters to a boisterous billionaire named Donald Trump. Why? Because of the party’s self-destructive obsession with race and gender. The real dividing line between families that are forging ahead and those who are...

Ordinary Decency Survives—Even on the West Bank

Tue, Jan 31, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

How can a bus crash produce good news? On a rainy night in late January, a public bus filled with Israeli Jews plunged down a ravine near a West Bank Palestinian village. The driver and one of his passengers died, but many others were trapped in the wreckage. A courageous Palestinian family—four men and three women—heard the crash, called for help and rushed...

No, the Embassy Won’t Move to Disputed East Jersulem

Tue, Jan 31, 2017  |  by Michael Medved

Ongoing debate about moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is surrounded by misinformation. One common mistake suggests that the whole city is historically disputed territory between Israelis and Palestinians. That’s not true of Western Jerusalem, built up by returning Jews over the last 150 years, where the bulk of the city’s population lives and...

America’s Second Civil War

Tue, Jan 24, 2017  |  by Dennis Prager

It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War. In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War. For that reason, just as the Great War came to be known as World War I...
