Cuba Crisis Amplifies Media Bias

Famine is a natural consequence of communism, so it’s no surprise this is happening in Cuba. And as usual, the media takes a dishonest spin on the protests for freedom.

It’s amazing that there is a demonstration in a lockdown, communist country, such as Cuba. “How did they even organize?” asks Dennis Prager. But even scarier is how likely it now seems to that we will see similar protests for freedom in America. Here’s Prager’s “Fireside Chat” take on Cuba and other topics.




The Price For Playing It Safe

In the latest edition of Dennis Prager’s “Fireside Chat,” he reflects on this past year’s newfound obsession with safety. The price for playing it safe at everything in life is not fully living.

Safe has become a value, whereas people now neglect to say bye, so-long or take care. Instead, their retort is “be safe.” Prager says the term has become more holy and he can’t stand it. “If I had followed the admonition my whole life, I wouldn’t be here in this fireside chat and you would have no idea who I am,” he says. “I never played it safe.” Prager explains his logic, plus adds his take on the new Juneteenth holiday and military wokeness.




Are Fathers Necessary?

Are fathers necessary? For all of recorded history, the need to explain why fathers are necessary would have been regarded as, well, unnecessary. “It would have been like explaining why water, or air, is necessary,” says Dennis Prager. “But we live at a time in which the obvious is routinely denied.”

He says there have been numerous articles in prestigious journals denying the importance of fathers. But this is not only inappropriate today, it’s also concerning and dangerous. Prager explains in this segment of PragerU.

Manipulated By Hamas

Big media names fawned over British comic John Oliver’s segment this week about the Middle East conflict, when he sided with Palestine and the terrorist organization Hamas because they were at a military disadvantage against Israel.

Not so fast, says Dennis Prager. “Here’s the problem: He’s wrong. Too many people don’t realize they have been manipulated by Hamas propaganda.” Prager presents his case on the issue in this week’s “Fireside Chat” on PragerU.




A Hopeless Generation?

A recent survey reveals that 51 percent of young Americans are feeling depressed with a negative outlook on life. Why so hopeless? Says Dennis Prager, “Well if you are indoctrinated to hate your past, to live fearfully and to expect the world to end, how could you not be?”

In this week’s “Fireside Chat” on PragerU, Prager looks at the different factors that are distressing our youth and probable solutions to turning their lives around.




Who Hates The Police?

Hate them or love them, the police are a major and divisive issue across America. But why is the hate so much more prevalent?

Dennis Prager delves into the issue, breaking down an unbelievable hate video that went viral. In the clip, a woman gets pulled over by a cop for using her phone while driving. Her response: “Murderer, what are you going to do to me? Are you going to kill me and my son?” Prager says she must have called him “murderer” at least 10 times.

Later in the confrontation, the abusive woman calls the cop a racist Mexican! And the clincher is, she is a teacher! “Oh my God, that’s the scariest part of the video,” Prager says. “Only God knows what she teaches her kids.” In the following edition of PragerU, Prager offers his brilliant insight into why the Left hates the police and how they’re damaging law enforcement, and also discusses the definition of white values.




Dissecting The Chauvin Trial

With the Derek Chauvin trial now behind us, pending appeal, whatever happened to the charges of racism? The race card, as you might remember, was front and center from the day of the crime right up to the trial, but both the prosecution and defense were mum on the R word. What gives?

Dennis Prager asks, “Isn’t that the entire reason this country has been fixated on this issue? So, maybe the whole thing was a lie.” After all, the death of George Floyd last May set off nonstop riots and lootings the rest of 2020 in protest of police racism. So why wasn’t it mentioned in the trial? Because it didn’t exist.

In the following Fireside Chat, Prager discusses the future of policing in America, whether the verdict was correct and the power of the media in this episode of PragerU.




The Lie Of Anti-Asian Racism

The shootings in Atlanta last has catapulted this insane obsession with Asian hate. And if you listen to the mainstream news media, they’re only pouring fuel on the fire. “We’re bathing in this terrible lie of anti-Asian racism in America, another example of white supremacist thought that has taken over the country,” says Dennis Prager.

In this week’s edition of “Fireside Chat,” Prager delves into the latest spike in attacks on Asian-Americans and the Left’s habitual untruthfulness, beginning with his five reasons why this enormous lie was fomented. Here’s more with Prager.




Small Government The Answer

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. Not everyone understands why that’s true, however, and Dennis Prager responds to some of those critics, pointing out, “The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

Prager also introduces a rare guest–20-year-old Amala Ekpunobi–an impressive new edition to the PragerU family, who became a much happier person when she left left-wing activism and victimhood in favor of logical conservative values.




 

 

Big Government A Joke

Small government was the vision of our founding fathers. It’s the reason America has provided its people more freedom and more opportunity to live a better life. But with the recent fake election of perhaps the most corrupt and radical government in our history, are these values vanishing?

Appearing on this segment of PragerU, Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers provides some perspective, summing up the political climate on Capitol Hill perfectly: “It’s just an amazing deal what they’re doing,” Rodgers says. “If you look around our environment today, it’s not like the government is helping anybody out in a timely fashion. It took forever to figure out how to give $600 checks away. To count on the government to help us out is becoming a joke at this point.”

Rodgers lauded Barstool Sports, a sports and pop-culture blog that created a fund to help small businesses endure the catastrophic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rodgers says relying on government is not the answer, people helping people is the way to go.

PragerU founder Dennis Prager concurred, adding that every society in history has shown us that, as government grows, human freedom and happiness shrinks. “The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen,” he says. Here’s more from PragerU.
