The left has proven themselves to be the antithesis of truth, individuality and love, Dennis Prager said at CPAC 2019.
Prager, host of The Dennis Prager Show and founder of Prager U, spoke Saturday at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Maryland. He shared with the CPAC crowd 21 things that the left has completely damaged. These include universities, the media, arts, sports, the nuclear family, the Boy Scouts of America, religion and human happiness.
What makes the leftist agenda so dangerous, according to Prager, is that even people who are well-mannered and have good intentions can fall for its ideology, allowing it to spread in America’s culture.
“Your opponent is irrelevant,” Prager told political candidates in the past. “You are running against someone on the left. The left is destructive.”
Prager finds it baffling how people who believe in statements made by the left will engage in acts that are hypocritical. He pointed to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) rhetoric that the world will end in 12 years and her belief that massive floods will emerge as a result of climate change. He wonders why people who believe in her words don’t end up selling their homes by the waterfront.
“Do they believe what they say?” he asked.
Prager also commented on racial relations in the United States, blaming the left for creating hostility between black and white people and making up issues that don’t exist.
“There are probably more hoaxes than there are genuine beatings of black people by whites,” he said.
During the end of his speech, he created an example of a married man who says, “I love my wife, but I want to see her fundamentally transformed.” Prager asked rhetorically if someone can truly love their wife and say such a thing. In comparison, can someone on the left really say they love America but want to change everything about it?
“[Conservatives] love America because it is good,” he said. “[Liberals] hate America because it is good.”
Prager ended his talk by advertising the upcoming documentary No Safe Spaces. This film details the totalitarian nature of modern college campuses, and how they hinder freedom of speech.
