Trump cultist Dennis Prager writes:
The sadistic treatment of Paul Manafort illustrates something I have believed since I attended graduate school in the 1970s and saw the behavior of left-wing students: Leftism makes people meaner. Neither liberalism nor conservatism makes people kinder or meaner. But this is not the case with leftism. Leftism makes people meaner, even crueler.
Take the transfer of Manafort, the one-time Trump campaign manager, from a federal prison to New York’s Rikers Island prison. Rikers Island is universally regarded as a wretched place. Moreover, Manafort, found guilty solely for white-collar crimes, will be placed in solitary confinement — “for his own safety.”
Here’s a question perhaps millions of parents will be able to answer: If your child returned home from college a leftist, was he or she a kinder or meaner person than before he or she left for college? The question is rhetorical.
Prager last appeared on JMG when he declared that sending your children to college will only “alienate them” from America and Christianity. He has also claimed that natural disasters are punishments from God and that feminism “demasculinizes” men. Prager’s main YouTube channel has over two million subscribers.
