A View of Dennis Prager’s Obamaland 7 Years Ago

The following article appeared at this site on March 16, 2010.


“I have known Dennis Prager (via radio) now for five and a half years.  Summing up the time I have spent in mental conversation with him, listening to his theses, assumptions, interpretations and conclusions and his conversations with folks he interviews, I have spent more time in his “presence’  than with anyone outside my  immediate family and the handful of compatriots with whom I work.

I know nothing about the private Dennis….and don’t wish to.  What Dennis envisions about America, I envision.  What Dennis fears about America’s future are my fears.

Dennis’ attitudes and experiences with academic America are my attitudes and experiences.  I have taught.    Dennis has taught.   How Dennis interprets, Glenn has interpreted and had done so years before there was any Dennis to “talk to” in his life.   Dennis  thoughts were isolated within my own thinking.

Back in those days when Dennis was at Columbia University, a student  enduring  the attacks from the “fascist left”  (Dennis’ own words) disrupting his classes, defacing the school, and shutting it down in the name of druggies  for love, more drugs and the righteousness to  “Hate America,”  I watched the same insanity  every evening on television alone, a Democrat, married with children.

Dennis Prager declares the first Republican he ever voted for was in November, 1980.    I had never failed to vote for a Democrat  until November, 1980….for the same candidate, Ronald Reagan…..although I voted for him as a Democrat…..the final end of my line with  that party affiliation.

Dennis taught himself Russian.  I majored in Russian, was taught the language by Czarist aristocrats who unbeknownst to me, made me pronounce my Russian at the level of the ‘Queen’s English.’   Dennis possesses a quaint Brooklyn Jewish accent when he says, “dobroe ytro….kak dela?’.

I earned a graduate degree in “Soviet Studies” and spent much of the summer of 1966 in the good old USSR.  Dennis, too, has a post graduate degree, I think from Columbia, from the School of International Relations there.  Dennis likes to travel, likes people, talks to people often about cultural matters while traeling, just as I used to  do.

Dennis likes hockey.  Some of my best times in life  have revolved around hockey.

Dennis,  during the opening moments of his radio program  on that Wednesday after the November Tuesday when the vapid, (Dennis’ words) very vapid John F. Kerry was defeated by President George W. Bush broke into tears….mumbling…..unable to speak, choking up , failing in his attempt to maintain his reserve.

I wept the night before when at midnight, my son Christian, disturbed my sleeping pill by waking me up, per instruction, if G.W. had won Ohio.    I was certain vapid man was going to  win.  But, Chris had jumped in joy too soon….George was only leading in Ohio, and  the vote was narrowing.

I believe, as does Dennis, that America is in deep trouble as America.  We never have had a foreign president running the country as we have in Obama.   Foreign in experience of life and family,  president Obama is nevertheless, simply the inevitable result of  a new religion sweeping the nation’s universities and schools, Marxism.  The man shows no romance, no love, no tears, no honest and sincere feeling about America.  He ran to “Change America”.

He was trained to be a Marxist, and accepted the cloak willingly.

But  Dennis Prager refuses to use this “M” word for the “Marxists” Barack Hussein Obama, Bill Ayers, Nancy Pelosi, George Soros, and Harry Reid the Lefties they  truly are.    Does he  allow  the Left to determine his vocabulary.  Why?

Dennis admits there are nearly no Liberals left in the Democrat Party.  They have been purged or forced into compliance and silence….only the “Left” exists, as he likes to say.  That “Left” as he likes to say, are Marxists, but he cannot utter the word.  Why?

The bigger the government…the smaller the citizen!  What a wonderful Prager truism….but how big must government get before it achieves the noun “Marxism” from Dennis’ lips?

“Our country is becoming  more Marxist”.   That is as true a statement as any.   Dennis cannot deny its truth.  “Our country is becoming Marxist”…..yes, that is true as well, but, Dennis could say ala parsing Bill Clinton, it depends on what you mean by “Marxist”…….but Dennis wouldn’t parse.  Here is a typical Dennis explanation….regarding lying….as in “telling a lie”….or “being a liar”.

Dennis has explained often that a lie is not  a lie, if the person telling the lie does not believe it to be a lie.

That tricky scenario does occur in life, but it rarely occurs in politics, the world in which Dennis so often excuses liars for lying.   He prefers  them to be people who are unaware of their lying….even though they are paid to know the difference between lies and unlies.   Weren’t they elected to help lead the country?

Dennis is simply not combative on radio.   He may be in private, but he is not on radio.  He was a terrible wuss during a full hour radio show  interview with Henry Waxman, a sharp Marxist Democrat from California.  Dennis showed respect for this weasel no matter the size of  lies and distortions he repeated, one of the  most devious-tounged Lefties  in the House of Representatives.  Certainly Dennis  should not name-call using the word Marxist…..but use it often when appropriate.

What does Marxism entail?

Government ownership of major industries, including those of finance and auto production.  Government micromanagement of citizen lives.  Punishment meted out to those who use  more water than allotted by bureacrat design……rural agricultural schools must have the proper number of lesbians on teaching staffs…..living space must be limited so everyone shares the same size domestic experience…..rearing children will be rationed as will be the number of people allowed to be older  than sixty years old…..rearing or marrying dogs or cats are substitutes for children or husbands for equality standards…….all decided  by Lefty bureaucrats……..car ownership limited to government enterprises…….everything will be micromanaged to pretend equality.   Eventually only Marxists will have “spending money.”  For others money will be made equal.

President Obama is a Marxist because he is selling Marxism.  He advocates government micromanagement of personal life.  He opposes private enterprise and prizes depriving people of wealth reforming  them as drones, naked and impotent  before his bureas of Washington management and in the future, their henchmen by  the tens of millions to oversee religiously dedicated “government” dictating  equality of health care passed March 2010…….the first  major Marxist victory over the diminishing citizen   in American history.

Marxism is the religion of government forced equality.  The high priests of the religion come from academia who “know” they know best the ways of human behavior.   They have been trained to pass written tests and deserve  the riches that come from such superior experience and great expectation.   Obama comes from this class.

Since no one is born equal, nor can learn equally, cannot  live life equally and die equally,  equality must be forced on the people according to  Marxist religious tenets.  Some Marxists, those who govern,  will inevitably be made more equal that others.  That is the law of the jungle, Marxism or no Marxism.

Think of the billions of dollars that will be earned through the boundless possibilities for   bribery!   How much will be paid under the table to buy the Commissar of Aging, to allow your mother to live past 60?…….Who will have the “luxury” of a sex change or a hip replacement except through payoffs?   Bureaucrats usually crave Marxism as a religion.  It increases their profit margin.

Dennis prefers to be liked.  He has a radio show…..is a teacher more than an entertainer.  He is cautious by nature, doesn’t want to be thought of as a crank, which the Marxists would certainly quickly jump on…….Dennis has a personna that helps him succeed  winning over listeners who might not  show up if he uses the word “Marxist” even where it should be used.

Perhaps Dennis thinks that president Obama doesn’t yet know he is a Marxist!   Although he preaches Marxism, advances Marxism by stealth and wealth,   hires Marxists, befriends Marxists, avoids criticisms of Marxists, because he doesn’t know he is  a Marxist, why shouldn’t he  still be identified as he is….a Marxist?

Only in America!”
