These are difficult times in our America. Assaults on our traditional values based upon JudeoChristianity are coming from all fronts, at home and abroad.
The last refuge for our America, its goals, its duties, its values based upon our Biblical lessons from the past, is our Republican Party today…..and, until recently, preachers like our Dennis, as if lone wolves howling melodies from deep in our Minnesota forests, keep the light of human life lit.
Dennis is Jewish, a conservative one, making him a very rare creature in this community since his college years, as I remember from his preachings from when I first met his speaking on radio in October, 2004.
Raising this point is not intended to be a put down statement to anyone…..as today’s Media Matters atheistic Jews would pick up as a weapon to destroy me (and Donald Trump) if I (or he,) were a noted conservative running for political office.
Dennis has become, and will continue to be, part of my family in my continuing old age. I respect him, but no one is perfect, and our Dennis has been very ‘unperfect’ for his war of hate against Our Donald.
As I used to remind my senior high school students, “Whatever I say or write is a matter of MY opinion”.
Donald Trump seems to have arrived not into Dennis’s inquisitive brain, but onto Dennis’ nose….so close to his eye he can’t see things profoundly Donald, and therefore has no clue regarding who this, “Our” Donald is, where he really comes from, what he really thinks, what he really is driving at, what his goals are, but instead sees nothing good, absorbing only countless Donald faults…..and there are a lot of them which irritate even us, his best allies.
Dennis’ sin is a human sin so common in us all. Our tolerance for matters new in our life’s experience become more firmly grounded in us as we age. By Nature we aging males wonder more and more about life’s whispers of wisdom and life’s purpose beyond our cemented securities held tight by the brick and mortar of experience.
For thirty five years I have known this Donald Trump through television and the press…who he was, what he seemed to be, what he did in life, and how he did it according to pages from the press and sites on television. This Trump was a New Yorker to boot…and I wanted no part from him. I was totally today’s “Dennis Prager” regarding our Donald…. until this mid-to-late summer past when I began to realize this Trump is truly serious about competing as a Republican to become America’s president in 2017.
The Republicans were offering a Jeb Bush, God forbid, the dull, awkward Republican one, the brother of nice guy but also awkward functionary, limited Republican, not very conservative USA president, GW; Ted Cruz, a boring talkie-talkie functionary who had a great reputation as a debater; the boy, nice guy, functionary Republican guy, Senator Rubio, with a terrific family story to tell America, but jobless after his Senate stint was over; and some awkward, grumpy Republican guy governor from Ohio. Boring!!!
And then there was chubby, Obama-hugging prosecuting attorney, New Jersey guy.
All functionaries…..nothing new or thrilling about that list…..SO I LOOKED UP OUR DONALD THROUGH THE INTERNET, just to see where he might fit, fully prepared by prejudice to discover countless reasons I should despise him as an American, as a Republican, as our 45th President of the United States.
To be brief I loved what I read…..(Despite noticing America might have her first lady in the White House who might appear a bit bimboish, my prejudice, folks), I found out the Donald was very well liked by those who work for him, deal with him. He had children unspoiled who learned to work for a living, that he was a builder and even a successful tv celebrity , far from my tastes of life, and that his first wife wrote an article exceedingly favorably about this guy as a human being.
Religiously….Our Donald claims he’s a Presbyterian. He announced it so. I’m guessing he doesn’t really know how screwball most Presbytries are these days…atheists, Israel haters, leftists’ churches to go to practice feminism and points leftier.
By God, if he’s found God again, go to it, Donald!
Dear Dennis and other such anti-Trump RNC bigots….Donald Trump is and has never been a politician in his life! He has not practiced its habits, the good or the sleazy.
Dear Dennis an other such anti-Trump RNC bigots….. Donald Trump, a builder, a gambler in business, has had ups and downs in life…..many of them….and he bounces back a winner.
Today, our America needs a winner!!!!
No one can match him in personality or in ways he can botch up a sentence, especially when he is roused. And, above all…..Dennis, Donald Trump is a practicing conservative in business who has had to take chances in the world in which he’s worked and starred. You smear him, as do your fellow establishment Republicans for pressing eminent domain expansion for one of his countless business projects, this one in Atlantic City as one of Trump’s cruelties. He was picking on a 74 year old gal who lived in a house Trump’s company wanted for a parking lot.
How unAmerican! Fine, Dennis. All other RNC Republicans are safe from such a case as this…..What has any of them, Marco, Ted, Jeb, Kasich, Rand Paul, even Michael Huckabee ever built? What have they ever done outside of lawyering and playing politics or selling words?
I have been shunning you, Dennis, on radio recently, for I do not want to lose faith in you as an honest broker you’ve always been…before our Donald issue. I, out of curiosity today, turned to your Radio Show near the end of the second hour….
Today, a very articulate, bright but nervous guy, well speaking guy of twenty-some years of military life guy called in to Dennis…who, like me, LOVES our Donald for his conservative life, for his guts, for his in-your-face every day Americanisms…..regardless how awkward he might articulate them from time to time…and for his CONSERVATISM!
But, Our Dennis didn’t hear his caller AT ALL….Dennis, like Ted Cruz, is a champion debater. Unless a celebrity, Dennis, by habit, although he tries to be polite, often treats callers as students, lower class than radio class professionals…..
He politely listened to this eloquent, but nervous ex-military guy….both of them making me proud of the Americans they both are. And then Dennis asked, “Don’t you care when Trump said George W. Bush lied about Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction”…..and another similar Trumpism as well, which I couldn’t take note of fast enough….. Military-hero man inferred “NO”……(As my answer would have been, for the statement was made in a moment of heat) and went on to list more solid, mindful items why he became a Trumpy….but Dennis had to conclude the discussion….
……..and re-established himself very high on his Dennis Prager morality throne saying that he, DENNIS PRAGER DID CARE ABOUT COMMENTS LIKE OUR DONALD MAKES FROM TIME TO TIME.
Dennis felt good. He had won his debate……but remained totally unaware of why so many of us, including probably the majority of males who still support both Rubio and Cruz, will vote for DONALD TRUMP whenever we have the chance.
They cannot speak Prager words for these men and their wives are not debaters or radio show hosts. Some, perhaps many have never voted Republican before…GOD FORBID!!!! Dennis….. I, who have been active as a Republican in my continuing 36 years of voting only Republican in every contested election, am NOW deemed unconservative, and therefore an outcast this coming March 1, 2016 when I arrive to vote for Donald Trump in the primary as my man for the 2017 White House.
Dennis wimps about Our Donald’s verbage as it is in his profession to do. Yes, our Donald has spoken and done things LIBERAL in his business past. But, Dennis, Donald hasn’t had your or even my ‘verbage’ life. He has been a businessman with other talents needed for success. He’s very quick-minded which seems to interfere occasionally with his verbage sources.
I hope our Donald guy snubs automaton Republicans, AND the liberal press and the rest of its American empire, AND REFUSES TO HAND OVER HIS INCOME TAXES FROM HIS PAST….as an invasion of his American privacy that it is.
I hold my breath every time Donald opens his mouth when he’s teed off. He is NOT a politician or a debater like you, Dennis. He is a builder, a business man, who seems also to like the entertainment industry….What is so unAmerican about that?
He doesn’t have your training of smooth-talk language! I wish he did! Nor do you at times, Dennis, when you lose it….actually the times I often LOVE YOU MOST!….because you scream like you think it is, and have the guts to let loose! Trump blow ups, such as the one about GW and weapons of mass destruction are products of his temper perhaps from some prejudice he heard from the past instead of swearing at his opponent. Some times we are not at our best as you truly are, when we lose our cool. That Donald was for the War or against the War in Iraq are probably both TRUE, but again from his verbal past. Why are we conservatives telling folks he lied?
From Trump’s very entry into this political race he has met conservative enemies at all fronts…ALL FRONTS. His entry has stirred more interest, conversation, action, do, what not to do, yes, no, why, who said, and so on….in my lifetime of being engrossed following America’s presidential elections since the beginning of my awareness in 1948, Truman vs. Dewey.
Good Luck, Dennis and Donald!! I hope you can come to know each other well! You both will be elevated by the experience, I’m sure!
Has Donald turned down an invitation to speak with you during your show, Dennis? Has he been invited?
