  • The Greatest Libel Since the Blood Libel

    The most infamous libel in history is the one known as the Blood Libel. This was the medieval lie leveled at Jews in some European countries that accused the Jews of killing Christian children to use their blood to make Passover matzo. As the author of a book on the history of anti-Semitism ("Why the Jews? The Reason for Antisemitism"), having taught Jewish history at the college level, and as a committed Jew who has devoted great efforts to combating anti-Semitism, I do not easily compare anything to the Blood Libel. But perhaps the second greatest libel -- and certainly...

    What is the difference between a leftist and a liberal? Answering this question is vital to understanding the crisis facing America and the West today. Yet few seem able to do it. I offer the following as a guide. Here's the first thing to know: The two have almost nothing in common. On the contrary, liberalism has far more in common with conservatism than it does with leftism. The left has appropriated the word "liberal" so effectively that almost everyone -- liberals, leftists and conservatives -- thinks they are synonymous. But they aren't. Let's look at some important examples. Race:...

    "Our leading media" are characterized by "indefensibly corrupt manipulations of language repeated incessantly." Patrick Lawrence in The Nation, Aug. 9, 2017, on the media's reporting of the alleged collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and Russia To understand America's crises today, one must first understand what has happened to two institutions: the university and the news media. They do not regard their mission as educating and informing but indoctrinating. In this column, I will focus on the media. I will dissect one issue that I know extremely well: the national and local coverage of the invitation extended to me to guest-conduct...
  • Standing Ovations for Triumphant Dennis Prager, Conducting at Disney Hall

    Breitbart ^ | August 17, 2017 | Joel B. Pollak
    Conservative talk radio host Dennis Prager received a standing ovation from a near-capacity crowd the moment he walked on the stage Wednesday evening to conduct the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra at Walt Disney Concert Hall. The audience was not only applauding the music, but the principle of freedom of expression, after several left-wing members of the orchestra had attempted to organize a boycott of the event by the musicians and by the public. A letter circulated by the boycotters exhorted: “Please urge your friends to not attend this concert, which helps normalize bigotry in our community.” One boycotter, violinist and...

    Bret Stephens devoted his New York Times column last week to admonishing me for my tweet from two weeks ago and critiquing my follow-up column last week explaining the tweet. The tweet reads, "The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does." Since he wrote the column as a "Dear Dennis" letter to me, I will respond in kind. Dear Bret: I'll try to respond to the most salient arguments you made. I'll begin with one of the most troubling. You wrote: "Wiser conservatives -- and I count you among them, Dennis...

    Last week, I tweeted, "The news media in the West pose a far greater danger to Western civilization than Russia does." To my surprise, the tweet went viral. And while there were more likes than dislikes, 99 percent of the written reactions were negative. Typical reactions were: --"F--- you." --"Move to Russia." --"Your very full diapers pose a very great danger, please change them." That received 1,880 likes. --"I've wiped s--- off my shoes more trustworthy and patriotic than your sorry a--." That received 606 likes. You get the idea. But it wasn't the ad hominem insults that I found...

    Last week, The Atlantic rendered a great service to those of us who contend that America is in the midst of a civil war between the right and the left. It provided a smoking gun -- actually, the gunshot itself -- to those of us who contend that the left (never to be confused with liberals) is intent on dismantling Western civilization. It published articles by two left-wing writers, one by Peter Beinart titled "The Racial and Religious Paranoia of Trump's Warsaw Speech," and one by its national correspondent, James Fallows, written on the same theme as Beinart's. The subject...

    I document in my book "Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph," which is an explanation of Americanism, leftism and Islamism, hysteria is a major tactic of the left. If you think about it, there is never an extended period of time -- one year, let's say -- during which society is not engulfed by a hysteria induced by the left. The mother of them all is global warming, or "climate change," as the left has come to call it (because the warming was not quite enough to induce widespread panic). Hysterics like billionaires...

In the case of my conservative friends who still snipe (or worse) at President Trump, I have rejected option one. The reason -- beside the fact that I simply like many of them -- is what I refer to as "moral bank accounts."Every time we do good, we make a...

    Dennis Prager reads from a Reason.com piece entitled, "White-Owned Restaurants Shamed for Serving Ethnic Food: It's Cultural Appropriation" (http://tinyurl.com/kctngut). It is another sick story of the Segregationist [racist] spirit of the Left that has been with the Democrat Party since they were founded. Here is an excerpt from the piece: ________________ If you're a white person, you have no business running a restaurant that serves Asian, Latin, African, or Indian cuisine. That's according to the creators of a "white-owned appropriative restaurants" list, which accuses several Oregon establishments of engaging in cultural appropriation—a tool of "a white supremacist culture." The list,...

    In a monologue considered witty by teenagers, teenagers in adult bodies and those who hate President Trump, CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert said about President Trump, "The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin's c*** holster," and "You're turning into a real prick-tator." Witty? Not to many of us. And not just not witty but obscene, which is particularly disturbing because it was broadcast on network television, not cable television. But more than anything, it exemplified a trend in American life that one could identify without any exaggeration as the unraveling of civil society. To...

    In a recent column, I made the case that Americans are fighting the Second Civil War. The deep chasm that has opened up between the left -- not liberals, the left -- and the rest of the country is so wide and so unbridgeable that there is no other way to describe what is happening. But I noted that at least thus far, unlike the First Civil War, this war is not violent. Unfortunately, there is now reason to believe that violence is coming. In fact, it's already here. But as of now, it's only coming from one direction. Left-wing...

    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 depressed conservatives were in 2012. (Why would you? Unlike you, we shun hysteria.) But believe me -- we were. Many of us believed that President Obama was doing great damage to America. Now we are convinced that he did more damage...
