Dennis Prager calls for a day for Latinos to thank America



“What Americans have done for all of the people who have come here from places like Latin America,” he continued. “Remember I said, there are to be a day, where in first-generation immigrants from Latin America just have a ‘Gracias, America Day?’ Wouldn’t that be very moving? Why doesn’t Univision organize such a demonstration, ‘Thank You, America?’ Yeah, well I know — Univision is on the left, so gratitude to America is not a distinguishing left-wing trait, whether in Spanish or in English. It’s is a distinguishing trait on the other side, however.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guatemala_syphilis_experiment

The syphilis experiments in Guatemala were United States-led human experiments conducted in Guatemala from 1946 to 1948, during the administration of President Truman and President Juan José Arévalo with the cooperation of some Guatemalan health ministries and officials. Doctors infected soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases, without the informed consent of the subjects, and treated most subjects with antibiotics. This resulted in at least 83 deaths. In October 2010, the U.S. formally apologized to Guatemala for conducting these experiments.

4. you are obviously familiar with Mr. Prager

of all the things he hates, Media Matters is at the top of his list. If you ever heard him talk about them, the hate is palpable. They have the nerve to document what he and his friends say on the radio.

6. yes, I am familiar with him - someone who claims to be moral when this

heart and head are filled with misogyny and racism. and he's writhing inside with anger of the rising profile of women, black and other non-whites.

8. I once heard him argue that Jews are naturally more intelligent than all other groups.

I shit you not. He claimed it was because Rabbis (the most intelligent men in Jewish society, according to Prager), are allowed to have children, while the priests in other societies are not.

One incredibly offensive position, supported by a series of laughable assumptions and flat out ignorance. Prager's a moron.

13. also the Jews saved humanity by being anti-gay

I shit you not either. According to Prager, the world was a cesspool of gay sex until Moses came along and put an end to all that, and civilization proceeded to flourish. Until now, of course.

10. Prager is a prick. And a phony.

And as was said elsewhere in this, he will aver and declare what he said was taken out of context.

A vile and hateful man.

12. Do we have a day where we thank Native Americans and ancestral Mexican landowners...

in The South and SouthWestern U S for letting us steal their land?

We could call it Thieves Day...and we could all dress like clowns.

14. For what, exactly?

Guatamala as you already mentioned. Maybe he means thanks for the Banana Wars. Or Paraguay? Pinochet? Bolivia? Uraguay? Iran-Contra? Our insane drug policy that creates the cartels?

16. Thank you Dennis Prager for being part of the problem rather than the solution.

Thank you for perpetuating a myth that Latinos must owe America a deep sense of gratitude for allowing them into America because America is so overflowing with generosity and compassion for our southern neighbors.

Thank you for turning a blind eye to our military and multinational corporations exploitation of the region and ignoring the genocide in that occurred in places like El Salvador

And thank you for not mentioning the dictators we supported there. Names like Anastasio Somoza, General Maximilio Hernández, General Efrain Rios Mont, Roberto Suazo Cordova, General Manuel Noriega.......

No seriously. Thank you....

19. Thank us for what? Like how we continue to allow corrupt banks to finance violent drug cartels?

Or how we tried to declare an illegal war on Nicaragua in the 80s?

What is he smoking and where might I obtain some??
