Dennis Prager: Voting For Trump Is Like Dropping The Atomic Bomb On Japan — In A Good Way!

In an interview today with the Christian Broadcasting Network, conservative talk show host Dennis Prager once again attempted to rationalize his support for Donald Trump, explaining that voting for Trump is much like America’s decision to drop two atomic bombs on Japanese cities in World War II in order to swiftly end the war.

“We dropped two atom bombs over Japan. Why? Because the context morally demanded it and the moral demand in our time in America is the defeat of the Left,” he said.

Conservative radio talk show host Dennis Prager, who initially wasn't for Trump at all, sees Hillary Clinton as a far worse alternative.

"In life you don't always get a choice between wonderful and awful. You get between awful and more awful and I'll always take the awful over the more awful," Prager explained.



Prager believes the moral choice isn't about backing Trump or not - it's much greater.

"We dropped two atom bombs over Japan. Why? Because the context morally demanded it and the moral demand in our time in America is the defeat of the Left," Prager rationalized.

In the end, that may be Trump's saving grace.

Dennis Prager Will Support Trump Over Clinton Because Sometimes 'Mature People' Have To Support A Stalin To Defeat A Hitler

On yesterday's edition of "The Hagee Hotline," conservative commentator Dennis Prager explained that he'll grudgingly be voting for Donald Trump in November because "mature people" recognize that sometimes you have to support a Joseph Stalin in order to defeat an Adolf Hitler.

Prager said that he would have preferred any of the other Republican presidential primary candidates to Trump, but since Trump is going to be the nominee, he'll support him despite his terrible character flaws and lack of values because Hillary Clinton, and Democrats in general, don't share the proper American values. 

"I'm going to vote for him because I have no choice," Prager said, asserting that people cannot simply refuse to vote because they don't like the candidates.

"In life, mature people have to recognize [that] most of the time in life, we don't have a choice between good and bad," he said, "we have a choice between bad and worse. The United States supported the mass-murdering Stalin against the mass-murdering Hitler not because we shared Stalin's values but because, at the time, the right thing to do was to support Stalin against Hitler."

"Mature people have to live in a world where you don't get your ideal but you better defeat the worst," Prager asserted.

Dennis Prager Blames California Drought On 'Worship Of Nature'

Right-wing talk radio host Dennis Prager was a guest on Glenn Beck's radio program this morning, promoting his new book, "The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code," during which he blamed California's historic drought on the fact that the state has been violating the commandment against worshiping false gods.

"A false god is one that you really do worship because you think it is godlike," Prager stated. "God created nature. Nature is subservient to God. Nature is created for the human being. Today it is the opposite. Where I live in Southern California, the reason we have no water is not because of drought, it is because of the worship of nature. For example, the incredible amount of water that is taken from humans in order to save some six-inch fish. This is the worship of nature."

Prager's assertion is untrue, but Beck agreed and used the discussion to reiterate his belief that the world is unknowingly worshiping the false gods Baal and Moloch:

Dennis Prager: 'The Left Doesn’t Hate Evil, The Left Hates Carbon Emissions'

Glenn Beck invited right-wing talk radio host Dennis Prager onto his program last night to discuss the Israeli elections, and naturally the two got to talking about how liberals “hate” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because he is against evil.

Prager told Beck that he used to be a liberal but “left the left” when he realized the only things the left hated were carbon emissions and people who do hate evil.

“They didn’t hate communism. They hated Reagan more than Brezhnev,” he said. “I said, ‘I can’t be here. I hate evil. They don’t hate evil.’ The left doesn’t hate evil, the left hates carbon emissions.”

When Beck brought up the baseless allegations that the Obama administration funded an effort to oust Netanyahu from his post as prime minister, Prager responded that one of his “rules of life” is that “those who do not fight evil hate those who do”… which is why liberals “hate” Reagan and Netanyahu.

Later in the conversation, Beck declared that “Benjamin Netanyahu is the closest and probably the only voice I hear that is Churchill” and declared that 70 percent of English people under 30 can’t identify Churchill because “they’re erasing him from the history books over in England.” That statistic, unsurprisingly, is not even close to true .

Dennis Prager Says Everyone On The AFA's Israel Trip Is Repulsed By Bryan Fischer's 'Repugnant' Views

Throughout the week, we have been chronicling the fact that several dozen members of the Republican National Committee are currently in Israel on a trip organized by Christian nationalist David Lane and paid for by an anti-gay hate group, the American Family Association.

Until attention began to be focused on the trip, nobody over at the RNC seemed to have any problem with the AFA's long record of openly promoting bigotry. Then, in a pathetically transparent effort to alleviate the controversy surrounding this trip, the AFA stripped its most notorious bigot, Bryan Fischer, of his title as the organization's director of issues analysis and role as official spokesman last week, while keeping him on staff and allowing him to retain his daily radio program on the AFA's radio network.

It seems as if the AFA's feeble effort to wash its hands of Fischer's bigotry has failed, as Haaretz is reporting that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus backed out of the trip at the last moment, claiming that he had a funeral to attend in the U.S. but would be joining the group later. But now, according to the report, Priebus will not be joining the group at all.

The most interesting aspect of this report is the fact Dennis Prager, who is currently in Israel on this very trip, says that everyone who went on the AFA's dime is repulsed by Fischer and his views.

Prager, a right-wing radio host and commentator who is anything but a moderate in his own right, told Haaretz that Fischer's bigotry is "mind-blowing":

Earlier this week, the AFA distanced itself from its former spokesman who had made statements described by critics as anti-Semitic, homophobic and racist. The spokesman, Bryan Fischer, had said, among other remarks, that America is a Christian nation in which Jews and Muslims are not entitled to constitutional protection for their religious expression.

Prager said he completely supported the decision to cut ties with Fischer. “The second I heard what he said, I said that if he really said those thing they’re repugnant,” he said. “Everybody here thinks they’re repugnant. Frankly, I can’t believe that a human being in the 21st century would say such things. It’s mind-blowing.”

The Jewish talk show host said he had never heard of Fischer before, nor had he had any dealings with any other representatives of the AFA. “This is all brand new news to me,” he said.

Ted Cruz And Mike Huckabee Follow David Lane's Christian-Nation Road Show To Michigan

Christian-nation activist David Lane is engaged in a multi-year, multi-state project to get conservative evangelical pastors more involved in electing right-wing candidates, and he is intent on making sure that the GOP nominates a 2016 presidential candidate to the Religious Right’s liking.

In spite of his extremism, Lane regularly gets Republican presidential candidates to attend his American Renewal Project events. On Monday night, Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee spoke at a Michigan Renewal Project “Pastors Policy Briefing.”

Lane generally tries to stay out of the media spotlight, unless it’s for a friendly face like the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody. Even the media-hungry Cruz and Huckabee slipped quietly into Lansing for the event, which the Detroit News picked up on a few days later.

Also speaking at the event was Chad Connelly, the former head of the South Carolina GOP who was hired by the Republican National Committee last year to strengthen the party’s relationship with conservative evangelicals. According to news reports at the time, the Southern Baptist Connelly was brought on to energize evangelicals, some of whom were feeling disillusioned by recent national GOP candidates and by what they saw as the party’s “softening” on marriage equality.

Among the other speakers listed in a promotion for Monday’s event in the August newsletter of the American Decency Association:  right-wing radio host Dennis Prager, “historians” David Barton and Bill Federer, the American Family Association’s Don Wildmon, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, former Congressman Bob McEwen, and Pastor Laurence White of the Texas Restoration Project.

It seems as if Cruz is equally at home in front of the camera and behind closed doors. The Detroit News reports that he “made a quiet visit to Michigan Sunday and Monday, meeting with Republican Party activists in events that were kept hush-hush until photos of the tea party stalwart and potential 2016 presidential candidate surfaced on social media.”

In addition to Lane’s event, the paper reports, “Cruz appeared at four events over the two-day period organized by Ron Weiser, the Ann Arbor developer and national Republican fundraiser with connections throughout the country.” The paper says Weisner is seeking the GOP nomination for a seat on the University of Michigan board of regents.  Among other attendees at Cruz events were Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and Tea Party activist Wendy Day, who recently lost a GOP primary bid for seat in the state House.

Prager: African Americans to Blame for Racial Discord

In a National Review column today, conservative talk show host Dennis Prager insists that racism in America is largely the fault of the black community, whom he claims will never be satisfied or grateful...even after so many white people voted for a black president!

“All it took was one tragic death of a black kid to reignite the hatred that many blacks and virtually all black leaders have toward white America,” Prager writes. “Ben Jealous of the NAACP, Al Sharpton of MSNBC, Jesse Jackson, and the left-wing media compete to incite hatred of America generally and white America specifically.”

Prager suggests that whites have tried hard (by being OK with a black president) but it doesn’t matter to the anti-white, America-hating black people: “Nothing white America could do will affect either many blacks’ perceptions or the leftist libel.”

The greatest hope most Americans – including Republicans – had when Barack Obama was elected president was that the election of a black person as the country’s president would reduce, if not come close to eliminating, the racial tensions that have plagued America for generations.

This has not happened. The election, and even the re-election, of a black man as president, in a country that is 87 percent non-black – a first in human history – has had no impact on what are called “racial tensions.”

In case there was any doubt about this, the reactions to the George Zimmerman trial have made it clear. The talk about “open season” on blacks, about blacks like Trayvon Martin being victims of nothing more than racial profiling, and about a racist criminal-justice system has permeated black life and the left-wing, i.e., mainstream, media.

I put quotation marks around the term “racial tensions” because the term is stated as if whites and blacks are equally responsible for these tensions, as if the mistrust is morally and factually equivalent.

But this is not at all the case.



Once one understands that “racial tensions” is a euphemism for a black animosity toward whites and a left-wing construct, one begins to understand why the election of a black president has had no impact on most blacks or on the left.

Since neither black animosity nor the left’s falsehood of “racial tensions” is based on the actual behavior of the vast majority of white Americans, nothing white America could do will affect either many blacks’ perceptions or the leftist libel.

That is why hopes that the election of black president would reduce “racial tensions” were naive. Though a white person is far more likely to be murdered by a black person than vice versa, all it took was one tragic death of a black kid to reignite the hatred that many blacks and virtually all black leaders have toward white America.

Let’s put this in perspective. Ben Jealous of the NAACP, Al Sharpton of MSNBC, Jesse Jackson, and the left-wing media compete to incite hatred of America generally and white America specifically. Over what? A tragic incident in which a Hispanic man (regularly labeled “white”) said, with all physical evidence to support him, that fearing for his life, he killed a black 17-year-old (regularly labeled “a child”).

The very fact that George Zimmerman – who is as white as Barack Obama – is labeled “white” bears testimony to the left-wing agenda of blaming white America and to the desire of many blacks to vent anger at whites.

And that is why the election of a black president has meant nothing. Indeed, to those whose lives and/or ideologies are predicated on labeling America and its white population as racist, it wouldn’t matter if half the Senate, half the House and half the governors were black.

Is Newt Gingrich America's King David?

With Newt Gingrich sharply rising in the polls, more and more Religious Right activists are saying that his personal background of serial adultery and multiple divorces will not be a deal breaker for social conservative voters. Bob Vander Plaats cited Gingrich’s “life transformation” and “Christian-historical worldview,” and Tony Perkins told Lou Dobbs that Gingrich is still viewed as more conservative and trustworthy than Mitt Romney, even though he is Romney’s “opposite” when it comes to their personal lives. “No one knows the story of redemption better than Christian evangelicals,” Perkins said.

Back in May, Michael Youssef used the analogy of King David to argue that Gingrich’s “personal struggles and successes will aid him in being not only a seasoned candidate but possibly one of the finest presidents since Ronald Reagan.” In 2 Samuel, King David had an affair with and impregnated Bathsheba, whose husband David later had killed by putting him on the frontlines of battle. Yesterday, conservative columnist Dennis Prager, without naming the presidential candidate, also used the King David analogy to make the case that Religious Right voters can still rally behind a politician with a sordid past:

But there is a larger issue that needs to be addressed first: What does adultery tell us about a person? For many Americans, the answer is: "Pretty much all we need to know." This certainly seems to be the case with regard to presidential candidates. The view is expressed this way: "If he can't keep his vows to his wife, how can we trust him to keep his vows to his country?"

I am a religious conservative, but I know this statement has no basis in fact. It sounds persuasive, but it is a non sequitur. We have no reason to believe that men who have committed adultery are less likely to be great leaders or that men who have always been faithful are more likely to be great leaders. To religious readers, I point to God Himself, who apparently thought that King David deserved to remain king – and even have the Messiah descend from him – despite a particularly ugly form of adultery (sending Bathsheba's husband into battle where he assuredly would be killed).

And while on the subject of leadership, another question for religious and/or conservative readers who believe that a man who sexually betrays his wife will likely betray his country: Who would you prefer for president? A pro-life conservative who had had an affair, or a pro-choice man of the left who had always been faithful to his wife?



Beyond that, I do not want to know anything about the sexual life of any candidate. Media reporting or questioning about candidates' sexual lives constitutes a form of hypocrisy so deep that the English language does not have a word for it. Media people report on the sexual lives of candidates – for virtually any public office – on the grounds that since these politicians have great power, the public needs to know all about them. Yet, they offer no insight into their own sexual lives, even though some in the news media are far more powerful than almost any politician except the president of the United States. If we cannot trust a candidate who committed adultery, then why can we trust a news reporter or editor who has committed adultery?

The Right Wing Phrase of the Day Is "Political Correctness"

While scrolling through my RSS feeds this morning, I noticed a trend developing in that just about every right-wing column on the tragic killings at Fort Hood seemed to lay the ultimate blame on "political correctness."

Martha Zoeller - Human Events:

Ralph Peters, a retired Army officer and military analyst, said, “It's not a question of security per se, but of political correctness gone haywire. Had Major Hasan been a white Christian or Jew, his butt would've been out on the street years ago. But Muslims are a protected species in our military.” Peters went on to say, “Radical Muslim chaplains? Still on duty. Muslim psychiatrist (of all things) praises suicide bombers on the web and tries to convert his patients to Islam? Hush-hush. And so we have 51 patriots (not merely 44, as previously reported) gunned down, with 13 dead. And our president and his generals won't even use the word "terror," let alone the phrase "Islamist terror." Political correctness killed those Americans at Ft. Hood as surely as did the Muslim fanatic who pulled the trigger.”

Rowan Scarborough - Human Events:

The FBI failed to intercede against Fort Hood terrorist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan as a result of its politically correct strategy of reaching out to suspect Islamic groups and clerics instead of combating head-on the Muslim radicalization movement in the United States.

Cal Thomas - World Magazine:

If you were an enemy of America, not only would you fight overseas and develop nuclear weapons (Iran), you would also engage in an even more effective strategy by striking at America’s underbelly. This is our most vulnerable region because we now tolerate virtually everything, indulge in political correctness, and subscribe to a bogus belief that if radical Islamists can see we mean them no harm, they will mean us no harm.

National Review Symposium:

Is the Fort Hood massacre a deadly example of political correctness run amok? National Review Online asked a few of our experts for their observations on how the shooting happened and what we can do to prevent similar incidents in the future.

National Review Editorial:

We see the operation of the same political correctness that cocooned Major Hasan in his Army career. Fellow soldiers noticed his strident and unbalanced behavior, but did not report him, lest they discriminate against him (or — their more likely fear — be rebuked for discrimination). He was invited to attend a conference of the Homeland Security Policy Institute at George Washington University in 2008. (Major Hasan, as it turned out, had a lot to say — not that he would have said it all, or that his plump-minded peers would have listened, even if he had.) We should not be surprised that journalists and pundits are no smarter than our defense and security bureaucracies.

David Limbaugh - WorldNetDaily:

Even as more and more realize oppressive political correctness is damaging our nation and killing our people, we still hold ourselves hostage to it. We can't criticize Obama on his policy agenda without absurd accusations of racism, and now our authorities' first instinct after the mass murder at Fort Hood is to victimize the identified shooter – Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan – rather than to protect our soldiers.

The military is the last place we should expect political correctness to flourish. We recognize, after all, that our armed forces exist primarily to safeguard our national security, not as a laboratory for social experimentation. Or do we?

Dennis Prager - WorldNetDaily:

Another classmate told the AP that he complained to five officers and two civilian faculty members at the university. He also wrote to Pentagon officials that fear in the military of being seen as politically incorrect prevented an "intellectually honest discussion of Islamic ideology" in the ranks.

David Kupelian - WorldNetDaily:

"Political correctness" – which is basically a low-grade Stockholm syndrome playing out on a broad societal stage – is actually a subtle form of brainwashing. Even establishment mouthpiece Newsweek, in its famous Dec. 24, 1990, cover story on the then-new phenomenon of political correctness on college campuses (titled "Thought Police") conceded this truth when it reported: "PC is, strictly speaking, a totalitarian philosophy."

...

This inordinate fear, implanted in us by the lords of politically correct attitude, the subtle brainwashers of modern, secular society, is to blame. ... The evil of "political correctness" – the totalitarian manipulation of thought, foisted on us by twisted elitist sociopaths who hate America and everything our soldiers have fought and died for over the last two centuries, and continue to fight and die for – has to end. Now. It's over. This nation must rise up and defy the insane thought control that is destroying our country right before our eyes.

Chuck Norris - Town Hall:

And the questions that keep coming to my mind are: Have we become so tolerant and politically correct that we can't see or confront a rotten apple when it's right in front of our eyes? When our fear of discrimination enables our enemies, can't we see something is grimly amiss? ... Why would the commander in chief even take up his precious media time immediately after this brutal rampage to encourage tolerance and political correctness concerning this psychotic killer? As a veteran of the Air Force and honorary Marine, I am appalled.

  • Dan Gilgoff reports that Rick Warren, despite bailing on his scheduled weekend interview, is "eager to schedule another high-profile TV interview to clarify his views on gay marriage and Proposition 8, California's recently adopted gay marriage ban."

  • Pam reports that openly gay Iowa state Senator Matt McCoy received death threats on the day that anti-marriage equality activists were scheduled to rally outside the Capitol.
  • Like Andrew Sullivan, we find this ad to be incomprehensible.
  • Good as You finds Concerned Women for America likening the Day of Silence to encouraging kids to drink or smoke crack.
  • John Aravosis debated Dennis Prager on the issue of marriage equality, during which Prager repeatedly insisted that gay marriage was a more important issue than the economy.

The Phyllis Schlafly School of Marriage Counseling

Personally, I don't really want to know the inspiration behind this latest column from Dennis Prager:

It is an axiom of contemporary marital life that if a wife is not in the mood, she need not have sex with her husband. Here are some arguments why a woman who loves her husband might want to rethink this axiom.

Prager goes on to list a variety of reasons why wives should have sex with their husbands whenever it is requested - not one of which seems to take the woman's desires, feelings, or reasons into consideration:

Compared to most womens sexual nature, mens sexual nature is far closer to that of animals. So what? That is the way he is made. Blame God and nature. Telling your husband to control it is a fine idea. But he already does. Every man who is sexually faithful to his wife already engages in daily heroic self-control. He has married knowing he will have to deny his sexual natures desire for variety for the rest of his life. To ask that he also regularly deny himself sex with the one woman in the world with whom he is permitted sex is asking far too much. Deny him enough times and he may try to fill this need with another woman.

We can only look forward to next week's installment of Prager's rather disturbing foray into marital counseling:

In Part II, I will explain in detail why mood should play little or no role in a womans determining whether she has sex with her husband.

Maybe Prager ought to just marry Phyllis Schlafly, since they seem to share similar views on this subject.
