The Perennial Prager
Doug H. writes:
I just finished listening to a Mark Levin podcast dated June 29. In the last 15 minutes of the show he interviews Dennis Prager. Dennis states he can sum up American values with three statements, Liberty, In God We Trust, and E Pluribus Unum. He goes on to explain how E Pluribus Unum is a great strength for us. His comments on this sounded like a liberal talking point. He is one of the leading so-called conservatives. Oh how I wish Dennis Prager or Mark Levin would interview a real conservative such as yourself.LA replies:
Dennis Prager is a joke, a man helplessly caught in his own contradictions, such as believing that America must be open to every person and culture in the world (his liberal part), and believing that America must preserve its traditions (his conservative part). I say helplessly, because, notwithstanding the man’s philosophical pretensions, he traffics in slogans, he has no desire or taste for thought, and therefore he hasn’t the slightest awareness that his contradictions are contradictions.

I heard the same June 29 interview with Prager on the Mark Levin show as Doug H. One of Prager’s idiotic proposals was to institute a service program whereby young Americans (I don’t recall whether it was to be voluntary or compulsory) will be sent around the world like Mormon missionaries to spread the “Values of Liberty” or some such tripe. There’s a formula for a lot of dead Americans! He also characterized “peaceful,” “moderate” Muslims as wanting the same things as we do, citing his favorite Moderate Muslim, Zuhdi Jasser (a joke himself). It was unbelievable how detached from reality Prager seemed to be.LA replies:
The U.S. Constitution has just been redefined by the U.S. Supreme Court as a mandate for unlimited Congressional power over every American, we have just officially lost our liberty, and Prager thinks we are in shape for spreading the values of liberty to less enlightened lands!
