Families are dividing today over politics, and few things upset Dennis Prager more than seeing families destroyed. There's a common thread in these cruel situations; do you know what it is?

The most maltreatment I received in any job I've ever had was from other women. That far outweighed the actual rare times I was even close to being physically harassed by men. Not to say that all women in the job were bad, and there was one where they were surprisingly respectful and decent people to work for and with. But for the most part, at least in my own decades of experience, women are dozens of magnitudes more nasty toward other women than men are to women in the workforce.

I feel really lucky, I’m conservative and my whole immediate family (minus my 2 little sisters cuz they are too young to know anything about politics) are conservative too. So that’s my mom, stepfather, my biological father, and my older brother. We all talk about politics all the time and it’s great cuz we all agree😂 However most of my friends are leftist-leaning, and my dads side of the family are all Democrats so they tend to get annoyed at me and my dad for our conservative beliefs. But they still love us and respect us. Which I am grateful for

Concerning your opinion of morality of cheating/lying, I do agree, mostly. If you truly believe that you can do genuine good (not selfish gains) by cheating, then cheat! However (using the election as an example) I would advise to do as much research as possible of your opponent before doing anything. In Nazi territory, the research is in the action: Nazis are killing Jews for being Jews. In this election, who is your opponent? Why are they wrong or corrupt? And is there true evidence of them being wrong/corrupt? You won't always have time as a luxury, I know that, but it's very important to be as familiar as possible with the problem AND the opponents.

I was on a call with my older brother and many of his friends and I heard my brother state that he did not insist on going to our grandparents house and meet with the rest of our extended family for thanksgiving, not because of a fear of the ongoing pandemic, but because they are right winged. I truly hope my twin sister does not turn out like him to be intolerant of ones beliefs, shes very innocent when it comes to politics, and is getting to the point where I've seen my own friends try to persuade her to join their political party. I'ts gotten to the point were in which I reveled my beliefs to them, well, I have not talked to them in 4 months, and was kicked out of my own group.

As far as stories of people getting disowned by family, how much of it is family being heartless and closed minded and how much of it is family having it up to here with the disowned member's ignorance. To me, the latter is more common than we think.

After dealing with liberal relatives throughout my life and avoiding them every chance I get, I have no issue with people cutting ties with people over political differences. Sometimes, mainly in the cases where the disagreements and fights have gone on for years on end, you gotta cut them out of your life for your own good. My half-siblings are left-wing atheists and they're disowned in everything but name in book. However, it doesn't quite excuse those who cut out family members because they didn't vote for the old coot. It's one thing if it's my case where it was years in the making (i.e. starting well before Trump). It's another thing if it started right now (or in the last few months) and it's the lefties in my generation being closed minded toward conservative family members. Family gatherings (mainly my branch and some from another branch, neither of which are Republican friendly) are almost always mini/family versions of the Democratic convention. Republican bashing is ALWAYS guaranteed. I'll gladly trade places with some loon who is turned off by his/her Christian conservative family. He/she can be with the dysfunctional lefties in my family and I can be in a family where normalcy is allowed and promoted, not condemned or trashed. I also agree that the left is a cult. They're more cult-like than Trump supporters supposedly are. It didn't hit me until the end of Obama's presidency that the left is so cult-like. And they continue to get worse. That's part of the reason they didn't get their 2020 blue wave. I also wish the pro-abortion people would stop accusing pro-lifers of only being pro-birth. They're spewing a complete and total lie. Kids spared from abortion aren't left to fend for themselves once they leave the womb.

My dad is liberal and I'm conservative. When he comes into my home I'm very respectful and won't discuss politics or watch something conservative on t.v. I do this b/c I respect that it would make him feel uncomfortable. However, when I go over to his house, he has liberal news mags out all over the place and doesn't hesitate to voice his liberal views. He'll put on a liberal news channel and make anti-conservative comments the whole time. It's gotten to the point where I wait until he's gone someplace before I stop to visit my mom.

That's the same with me and my liberal branch of the family. I keep my mouth shut, but they don't keep theirs shut and it turns into the family version of the Democratic convention. I avoid family as much as possible as a result. I want little to do with them. It's why I blocked some of my liberal relatives on Facebook. It's also why I haven't travelled with my dad to visit my left-wing half-siblings and their families in 5 yrs. Since then, I only interacted with them in my hometown. If not for the timing of some of the Christmas visits, my dad having a lung biopcy, and my grandmother dying last November, New Years 2016 would've been the last time I interacted with them in person. That New Years visit featured me and my oldest brother going back and forth about Faith (I'm a Christian, he's an atheist) and his wife lecturing/yelling at me over getting a job. I was dealing with post-college depression at the time and had no motivation to look for work and her yelling "just do it" made me even less motivated.

Democrats have to accuse Trump of all that because that is what provokes their audience to cheat lie for Democratic party. If children don't talk to parents take them out of your will!

I used 10 bucks given to me, a 14 year old, by a old friend of my dad who hates trump, to buy a trump hat. I earned it by shaming a man of his baldness after he told me that I was very small last time I saw him. To be fair they were very drunk. This was at my dad's 50th birthday about a week ago.

I have a brother with 11 children, 9 girls and 3 boys and when I tell people that, I am stunned that there are more than a few including men who think this is immoral of them because the planet is over populated and they should have adopted instead of having their own biological children as there are already so many unwanted children in the world.

I'd be interested in finding out how many of the Left offer counseling to women who regret having had abortions and how many of them personally or financially help women who choose not to have an abortion. I know of many conservative individuals and organizations who help women in both of these situations.

I completely cut ties with my liberal sister and her 2 pot smoking kids. Let her know by certified letter that both of those under achievers are disinherited from my will....unless..."They become as Republican as Ronald Regan." Never been happier. I spend holidays as a bachelor should: with friends I choose to be with, or on holiday somewhere warm. This year, I'm in the workshop, working on a classic car project. You mentioned the knock on the door, looking for Jews. "Do you have any Jews in zere?" "Nein!" "Zat is qvite a few, I vill need a bigger truck!" Sorry, couldn't resist.

My parents had 11 children (I'm the 8th). My mom would get asked, "You DO know how that happens, don't you??" and my mom developed one of two standard replies: "Of course! Don't you just LOVE doing things that you're really good at?" or "It's just so fun I couldn't stop!" XD As a testament to them, all of us were raised to be good, hard-working human beings.

Dennis pragur "I would cheat". Thank God you're not counting the ballots I guess. Dems have no morals? You are literally being part of rhetoric that divides the nation. "The left is cult"? You are trying to make people feel ok with family members cutting them out when they should be making an effort to come together. Politics isn't everything and I can't believe you are trying to make people feel defined by party. "What type of person does an ideology produce?" Do you not see the people that you stand shoulder to shoulder with? If you want to judge one side for their worst members then doesnt the same hold for you? They have rioters and you have racists by that logic. I can't stand the morale high ground you seem to talk from.

I have 2 older sisters that I did not grow up with. They're positively brainwashed by the left and the media (redundant?). I have absolutely cut them out of my life, and I don't feel one whit bad about it. I don't need that crap. I spent 20 years in the military and another 13 in law enforcement... only to watch our freedoms stripped by the communist/socialist left? Not while I still live and breathe.

I unfriended someone on Facebook. Regarding the election, I gave examples of alleged fraud and said, regardless of validity, the consequences of half the country denouncing a sitting POTUS' as illegitimate is the precursor to any civil war. They commented saying there was no evidence, I forwarded videos of the Phili counters barring Rep observers, the Dominion glitches, the lack of ID and signature verifications in mail in ballots, the harvesters who go into nursing homes etc. ballots in bins, the press conferences, and stated the fact of Biden achieving a greater count than anyone in history despite being a walking gaff machine - they said and Trump and Russian collusion, I said, you're not listening to me and that was disproven, along with the impeachment, so I have nothing more to say. I consider what I did as aggressive...but these people, I don't want to be their friends when theily believe something so contrary to what I do so I felt nothing in doing it.

One more thing. It was very reassuring to hear you address the school and workplace ostricization and bullying. My husband recently was wrongfully terminated and we are unsure the real root cause other than being a whistleblower. He isn't very religious and he isn't very political, but he isn't a democrat, either...but around here--that's a crime. I personally have had grades lowered (in some cases dramatically) for not being of the same mind as the professor. Unfortunately, I was completely unaware that the prof. had an agenda by not including background information in an historical narrative and I naively raised my hand and asked, "but wasn't that during the big movement to get America's policy to stop being the world's police?" (this was in regards to a court case suing a foreign country for not protecting its endangered species) Man. If only I had kept my mouth shut. My grade would not have been so severely bad. There were other incidents, but this one was like from that moment the prof. hated me. Hated me. It is hard to learn in that ambient.

Can't wait to get your book (lolz-4 Christmas!). I deeply appreciate ALL you do to encourage peaceful intellectual discussions on issues of disagreement. It is wise and healthy to do so. I noticed that around the 23:00 mark you say that Christians (and let's face it most Jews as well) do not know how to intellectually articulate their position on faith. I agree. It is worthy of note, however, that faith (be it Jewish or Christian) addresses a human need. One need not be raised in a particular faith to find it beautiful, tangible and encouraging. Though intellect should not be neglected, it is barely 10% of what faith in the One True God satisfies in relationship with each individual out of pure Love for that individual and the world.

It's the "spirit"is behind all this division that draws my attention.. Satan is the great divider of people to people, people with themselves and especially people to God. He is the ultimate hater and is having the time of his wretched life with this issue. I hurt for all the broken lives, broken families and broken nation. There is no compromise with the ideology of hate and death and the ideology of love and life.. prayer and lovingly standing firm offers little help to bridge with them.. they want to hate and fight .. " a spiritual darkness has engulfed this planet and only God can sort this mess out.... " because they hated me they will also hate you " Jesus Stand strong !!

I Used to believe Dennis was a decent person but I see now that I was wrong. Dennis is no more interested in doing what is right that the left he is purely interested in what Feels right. His stance at the beginning of the pandemic was "pah it's nothing more than a flu. it's just fear mongering by the evil left" and then it was " the flu kills 40,000 people a year we don't lock down for that" and then it was " 200,000 deaths pah these are fake numbers made up by the left" and now with Trump " oh well why wouldn't you cheat in counting votes it would be ill moral not to cheat". It's amazing how convenient it is for him to make everything fix his narrative. Dennis Prager would of been a Nazi in world war 2.

My Baby Boomer parents are lifelong Liberals who’ve been completely brainwashed by the “woke” Kool Aid spoon-fed to them by the NY Times and other mainstream news outlets. My Mother thinks Donald Trump has horns and a tail and posts all kinds of ridiculous, hate-filled things about him on IG to impress her liberal friends. While we still talk, the unsaid agreement is that we don’t go near politics. Sadly, our conversations are usually pretty brief and superficial with things like “how’s the weather” and “what’s for dinner.”

00:58 great point on cheating and lying! Reminds of how Rahab lied and it was a righteous thing to do. Also reminds me of this quote... "Three hundred years ago people in England were putting witches to death. Was that what you call the 'Rule of Human Nature or Right Conduct?’ But surely the reason we do not execute witches is that we do not believe there are such things. If we did-if we really thought that there were people going about who had sold themselves to the devil and received supernatural powers from him in return and were using these powers to kill their neighbours or drive them mad or bring bad weather-surely we would all agree that if anyone deserved the death penalty, then these filthy quislings did? There is no difference of moral principle here: the difference is simply about matter of fact. It may be a great advance in knowledge not to believe in witches: there is no moral advance in not executing them when you do not think they are there. You would not call a man humane for ceasing to set mousetraps if he did so because he believed there were no mice in the house." - C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Both of my siblings have drank so much of the Kool-aid, they both have blocked me and cut me out of their life. My mother tried to play peacemaker and I told her, I'm not the one who blocked them. I can back up all my positions with empirical evidence, statistics, video, audio, reason and logic. They merely parrot what CNN tells them and anytime they are challenged, they wither ridicule the source, dismiss it as a lie (even after watching a video saying the sky is blue, they could still deny it was blue if CBS said it was so). The left is terrified of debate and their premises are built of logical fallacies. My brother committed about 100 logical fallacies in a series of ultimately one sided conversations trying to get him to see reality and he spent the time telling me I was stupid, I needed to do better research, I was committing logical fallacies, all with not evidence of course. Projection, thy name is democrat.

Hi everyone! This happened to us and our adult child. It truly broke my heart. I thought we must not be the only ones, but I didn't actually know anyone else it has happened to. I was very thankfuI to come across this video and this wonderful group of people this morning. I am new to MNpost and just started a channel, and I created a video about this exact thing, hoping to help others. Just now I learned that I can share a video in the comments section. How cool! I'd love to connect with you and hear what you think about my video. We are in this together. Hopefully I am doing this right! /watch?v=DzTT5ekSb04&t=24s. This video is one where I am pretty mad. Here is one where I am more hopeful and happy:) /watch?v=_xd2yqyc-pc&t=9s

Yes, this has happened to us with our adult child. It’s horrible and heartbreaking. I agree. It has cult-like attributes for sure.

My family and I have very different political and religious views, but we don't talk about them with each other. I"m not on facebook either. If I want to socialize with them, I pick up a phone. We get along great, despite our differences, because we don't MAKE it an issue. If politics is breaking up your family, frankly, it's your own fault, nobody else's. Even if they insist, the conversation can't proceed very far without your participation. People rarely change their minds with pushy attempts at persuasion anyway. Lead by example. If you're miserable to be around, then it makes sense that no one is going to follow your prescriptions for life. If you're happy, stable, and kind, it's much harder for people, especially family, to see you (and by extension, your beliefs) as evil.

Everytime I would talk to my friends about politics she would say she doesn't have an opinion on it and doesn't know much, she cut me off and deleted me everywhere even from online games lol and guess what her reason was? "we have different opinions". Should have cut her off after she accidentally send me an audio gossiping about me

I have had some mean moments toward the ignorant annoying left family and friends. I have seen conservative people be very mean to liberal and left people. My dad being one of them. The bully and aggressive behavior shut me down when I was in my 20’s and became Democratic.

"The more the Government takes care of people, the less people take care of people." A brilliant, but simple truth that contrasts leftist ideology with conservatism.

I disagree with having 8 children - not because of religious reasons, but the environmental issues surrounding the entire life of a human being would be much less an issue if we all replaced ourselves - there will always be some who have one or two more, but that way, life on earth would be consistent but not abuse our resources and they would be there for each generation.

On behalf of morality had to come back to share... The question of morality... Is there a particular type of morality inducted into our social system? If so...what is it and why? Who is at risk moralistically of having more or less? When we see so many different ideologies, beliefs, and lifestyles not transportable from culture to culture, morality is difficult to define. Morality without perception of reality can become a Trojan horse running loose in the world, with nothing better to do than turning into a social justice warrior, servicing its own path while trampling on all others without knowing any better. Even the nature of reality is in doubt to the extent of jeopardizing morality. To build morality there must be certain criteria in place to benefit everyone involved sooner or later. It takes a certain degree of compassion with some well balanced boundaries in order to avoid subjecting others to harm and prejudice. It takes good mental comprehension, wisdom and life experiences to know the difference between good and evil...morality is not easy. Just an example lacking morality it seems, is the American Political Democratic Party in the 2020 elections. Morality depends on values from healthy stable family background and upbringing, including an education free from idealism and racism, otherwise its offspring will live in fear and can become bullies, as you know bullies are cowards. If your children have abandoned you, it is worth some serious consideration, and this is not to place fault only on parents. Study educational institutions challenging your freedom of speech and democracy, as well as undermining your integrity, just how moralistic is it? Morality is being destroyed by the full impact of our news media's narcissism for the sake of popularity, status and money. Some need to assess their volatile emotions, and not take everything personally Mrs. Nancy Palosi, you frighten many of us with your lack of morals. The futile emotional pursuits of the maladjusted beggars of the world, and their own insane propositions are defeating their leftist wings...they wish to be king in a world of democracy and paupers, but they have no voice of their own, their identity hijacked by ideas, lies and deception, where morality cannot exist, so you have no integrity, if you believe you do, it's your illusion. by Surrey Crossing /Vancouver and Montreal

True. The left are the most intolerant group of ppl, which is ironic. But then again Trump stands in the way of them getting free stuff, so they would be angry about anyone trying to deny them that. The older leftists think that a socialist govt will look after them forever. Lol Drs are already killing off elderly ppl all over the world. Socialism won't save them. And the young were promised Robots, to do all the work and they'd get money for doing nothing. That's how naive they are. Don't they realise in countries like China the buses come by and pick ppl up and take them to the factories and mines to work like slaves, in return for "free stuff".

You don’t have to bet your house Dennis, in regard to thinking pro life Christians are more likely to adopt a child with disabilities, leftists are trying to kill disabled babies before they’re even born so yea, that tells you right there.
