All you really need to know about James Lileks (No. 2 in a series)

From today’s column, on his radio listening habits:

“In the afternoon I listen to Dennis Prager, who’s thoughtful and respectful.”

Dennis Prager, of course, is the man who wrote a column boasting that his son had a black friend; who claims that the left doesn’t really care about women or the poor, but is only interested in overthrowing western values; who believes that America owes its greatness to its purported benign treatment of the Jews; who claims repeatedly, despite the easily verifiable falsity of the claim, that every Arab nation without American intervention is a Taliban-style dictatorship; and who distorts and exaggerates the facts so routinely one might suspect that he is something of a colossal liar. None of this even requires listening to his radio show; a glimpse at the archive of his recent columns will show you in great detail his overblown, hysterical beliefs in full flower.

By the way, in today’s thoughtful and respectful column, Dennis advises that you not send your children to good colleges, because they are “dominated by ‘post-moderns’ and other nihilists” whose “primary purpose” is to create a “people alienated from America and from God” with their “anti-American, morally deconstructed and simply foolish ideas”.
