Prager: Media Hypes Threat From White Supremacists To Protect Left-Wing Mobs

"To not understand that the neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klanners present an infinitesimally small threat to your society, but the left-wing mobs are a serious threat is to be a fool, to be a willing fool."

Various media outlets, Dennis Prager said on his radio show Thursday, hype white racial nationalism as a prominent political orientation affiliated with the Republican Party and broader right in order to denigrate political opponents while simultaneously shielding “left-wing mobs.”

Neo-Nazism, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), and assorted white racial nationalist ideologies and movements are politically irrelevant in contemporary America, amounting to an "infinitesimally small threat" to America, said Prager.

Partial transcript below.

The country has left-wing mobs all over, committed to violence, shutting down places, tearing down statues. … Where are right-wing mobs? Where are violent right-wing mobs? They’re not here, are they? ...

We’ve had meetings of a couple hundred neo-Nazis [and] KKKers and the like all of my lifetime. It means nothing in terms of what happens in America. But the left-wing media made it a big deal so as to protect the left-wing mobs, the thugs of the Left. ...

To not understand that the neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klanners present an infinitesimally small threat to your society, but the left-wing mobs are a serious threat is to be a fool, to be a willing fool. ...

This is what the communists did in Eastern Europe to install themselves, they called everybody a fascist, and they violently took over society. ...

The threat from the Left in this country is so much greater than the threat from the Right, that you have to be a fool not to realize it. You have to be either a leftist or a fool. ...

Those who don’t fight real evil, fight little evils. That’s the Left in a nutshell. They didn’t fight communism or Islamic terror, but they do fight Confederate statues.

"Racism," said Prager on his radio show Wednesday, is more prevalent among leftists than conservatives:

There is far more racism on the Left than on the Right. The Left believe, as Cornel West wrote as the title of one of his books, "Race Matters." The liberal and the conservative believe race doesn't matter. Character matters, but not race.

Prager drew from both the Merriam-Webster and Oxford English dictionaries to define "racism," describing contemporary misapplications of the term as left-wing linguistic corruption: "Misuse of the term racist, the distortion of its meaning, has been a moral scandal."

"You have to be an idiot to be a racist," said Prager, describing "racism" as both "stupid and evil."

Political observers should note that racism is an ideology predicated on the view that a person's racial heredity greatly impacts his or her character via biological determinism.
