How do those on the Left determine right from wrong? Since Marx, they’ve relied on a formula based on status, skin color, and wealth. But is that the way to reach a moral conclusion? Dennis Prager uses Israel and the United States to provide an illuminating perspective on this question.

Script:
Why does the left hate Israel? On the surface, it doesn't make sense. Israel is a liberal democracy. It extends full rights to women, to gays, and to its many Arab citizens. Like all countries, which are made up of flawed human beings, Israel is flawed. But compared to most countries, not to mention its neighbors, it is a civil rights paradise.
So, why does the left hate Israel? The reason is that the left - and as I always emphasize, I am talking about the left, not about liberals - is not guided by a moral compass. It is guided by three other compasses:
A power compass, a race compass, and a class compass.
Let's begin with the power compass.
Instead of evaluating people and nations on the basis of right and wrong or good and evil, the left evaluates them on the basis of weak and strong. If you're weak, you're good. If you're strong, you're bad. Israel is strong. Therefore, it is bad. America is strong. Therefore it is bad. The Palestinians are regarded as weak. Therefore, they are good.
When you are guided by a moral compass, you don't ask, "who's strong and who's weak?" You ask, "who's morally right and who's morally wrong?"
Fifty years ago, Israel was not a big issue for the left. Why? Because it was perceived as weak. But after the 1967 Six Day War in which Israel achieved a stunning military victory, it all changed. Israel became strong, so Israel became bad. And the Palestinians were weak, so they became good.
So, no matter how much terror Palestinians engaged in - hijacking airplanes, murdering eleven Israeli athletes and coaches at the 1972 Munich Olympics, blowing up Israelis in pizza parlors and at weddings - the left's position never changed:
Palestinians good. Israel bad. Because the Palestinians were weak. And Israel was strong.
That's one of the three ways the left judges the world. You can test this theory in other ways. Why is the United States bad? Because it's strong. And Third World countries that oppose the United States are good.
Cuba, for example, has been adored by the left for decades. Never mind that Cuba's communist party has ruined Cuba, that Cubans have no civil rights, and Cuba is one of the poorest countries in the world. Since Cuba is weak, to the left, Cuba is good.
The same was true with North Vietnam in the 1960s. It was considered weak, so it was good. The US was strong, so it was bad. It didn't matter that America was trying to preserve the freedom of the South Vietnamese, exactly as it had preserved the freedom of the South Koreans. The US was strong. So it was bad.
Which brings us back to Israel. The stronger Israel gets - as it effectively defends itself, as its economy grows, and its diplomatic position improves - the more the left hates it.
The second of the left's compasses - the race compass - is another reason the left hates Israel.
Just as it substitutes weak and strong for good and evil, the left substitutes non-white and white for good and evil. The left doesn't judge people by their actions, but by their race. That's why, for example, the left asserts that a black person cannot be a racist, only a white person can be s racist.
And that provides the second reason Israel is labeled evil: Israelis are considered white and Palestinians are not white. Never mind that more than half of Israel's population is not white.
The result: the left essentially ignores Palestinian terror and loudly condemns Israel's responses to terror.

I'm someone many would consider Left and my problem is abuse of power not power in general. I like Andrew Carnegie because he was extremely charitable, I dislike other multi Billionaires because they have the ability/money to solve problems but just choose not to do it. The same can be applied to countries and their power but I'm not 100% on the analogy I should use.

Leftist logic: Genocides are fine as long as they are committed by anti-US tyrannies. Remember "prestigious" scholars like Noam Chomsky denied the Cambodian Genocide & actively spoke up for the North Vietnamese genocidal Commies? Remember they dismissed the 2.5 million South Vietnamese refugees as "Saigon crooks" & even found excuses to try to block their entry to America?Today, they're still rewriting & rewriting history textbooks to demonize the South Vietnam & stigmatize Vietnamese Americans (mostly anti-communist refugees) backing President Donald Trump. No creatures on Earth are worse than the American Leftists! No viruses on Earth are more toxic than the American Leftists!

I totally agree. It’s like the family and friends, if you’re poor and you do a big effort and go to University, get a degree and then get a great job and decide to move to a better place, they immediate start the guilt trip that you are a traitor, that you are abandoning them, that you are not good because now you have money. It also happens to professional athletes.

I often find PragerU videos educational, and sometimes very biased and over simplified. This is one of those cases, and actually one of the worst offenders. A lot of countries in the world don't hate the USA because they are STRONG. They hate the USA because they consistently attack other countries and destroy them, implement 'regime' change, and carry out massive embargoes. They also armed terrorists and destabilised nations. Now most people in their right mind can make the distinction between the average American and American Foreign Policy. We know that most Americans don't want anything to do with wars etc. In fact, it turns out the only one that disrupted this was Trump, as much as he might be hated. So many millionaires and corrupt individuals got rich by all the endless wars (watch Why We Fight) and his lack of wars made a lot of powerful people very angry. It's no wonder he was relentlessly attacked. I'm counting down the time on the next war is started by the US - let's see how long it takes the Biden administration and that awful Harris to bomb another country.

The Strong-Weak thing doesn't quote work. China's strong. Russia was considered strong, until its economy did what all such economies do. But China and Russia were also Socialist, and Israel/the US are associated with Judeo-Christianity. The "we're defending the weak" line is actually just a ruse...it's more virtue-signalling, but is not the way they actually make decisions.

You have to really be brainwashed to believe this bs. Israel‘s government isn’t bad because it’s powerful, it’s bad because it occupied foreign territory and has settled there, suppressing the native population. All the left call for in Israel is a non-imperialistic foreign policy, period. An AGGRESSOR is bad. That usually implies some sort of power, that’s why this propagandist conflates the two. Seriously America, how can you have more than 3 braincells and be dumb enough to believe this bs?

How the Left Sees the World: Power, Race, and Class Q:Why does the Left hate Israel? A: They don't, the Left is merely critical of their government. Why does the Right View criticism as hatred? I mean, PragerU is criticizing the Left, why do they hate them? PragerU: The Left believes the weak are good and the strong are bad. Response: No, the Left believes that those who abuse their power are bad regardless of their overall strength. (It's almost like people abusing their power is a bad thing.) Q: Why is the United States Bad? A: The United States has done bad things (Genocide, Mass murder, war crimes, Slavery) not all Americans are bad and the USA as a whole isn't bad but it has done bad things. Why does the right view everything in such binary terms? USA GOOD! Palestine BAD! Strong GOOD! Weak BAD! PragerU: The left thinks people of color are good and that white people are evil. Response: The fact that lots of Leftists are white would make it kind of self-defeating to think yourself evil. Also, since America is majority white and the majority of the people in power are white, the racism by the majority which holds power is of greater concern so logic would dictate it would receive more focus. It's the same reason the majority of criticism of religious fundamentalism in the US is against Christian fundamentalism, because the majority of religious people in the US are Christian and Christians have more institutional power than other religious groups. Once again, why does the Right view criticism and acknowledgment of historical reality to be hatred? If I acknowledge that president Lincoln was shot, does that mean I hate actors? PragerU: The Left doesn't judge people by their actions but by their race. Response: The reason the Left say the KKK is bad isn't because their white, it's because they're terrorists. The reason the Left say the Nazi Party is bad is because they committed genocide against millions of people. They are white but they are evil because they did evil things. PragerU: The Left Judge people based on economic class. Response: The Left opposes Republican policies and the Republican party in general. The Republican party is made up of people ranging from poor to rich. So, no. You're wrong again. PragerU: The Left says that Rich nations bad and poor nations good. Response: This is why the Left wants the US to emulate the Universal Healthcare systems of nations across Europe, or Canada or Austrailia. As we all know these are hardly poor nations. Wrong. PragerU: Marxism views good and evil entirely though the lens of economic class. Response: [Citation Needed] PragerU: The Left hates Israel and the USA because they are wealthy. Response: The Left hates America so much they favor environmental policies to give Americans clean air and drinking water and want universal healthcare. The Left hates Israel that they want them to live peacefully with their neighbors. PragerU: Not subscribing to a binary concept of "Good" and "Evil" which aren't based upon reality but personal feelings is evil and will lead to the destruction of western civilization. Response: If self reflection and historical reality and the acknowledgment thereof is going to destroy everything, maybe it wasn't so great in the first place. Apparently being pro-West means mindlessly marching in lockstep with a rose tinted version of reality that is, was and will never be true. So in short, criticism is hatred, criticism is evil and criticism will destroy all of western civilization. Also, strawman the left constantly and never let up.

It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs." -Mahatma Gandhi

This makes a lot of sense. I've never really understood the leftist hatred of Israel, or the U.S. for that matter. Neither is perfect; no country is. But, overall, the U.S. and Israel are easily some of the world's best countries socially, economically, politically, militarily, and by virtually every other reasonable measure. The left claims to be supportive of minority rights, yet demonize one of the most advanced countries in this area. They would rather come alongside terrorists, their supporters, and their sympathizers than come alongside Israel. That tells me everything I need to know about the left and their character.

3:04 as a Korean-American, I know that a good majority of millennial and even gen X Korean people despise the U.S. presence there. They see the US' past actions as imperialism ostensibly, instead of going in there to stop the spread of communism. If South Korea wants to revert to the days when it was dirt poor, Japan had it under its thumb, etc. they are more they welcome to convert it into a socialist country like its northern neighbor. Sadly, a lot of wealthy, 1st world countries long for "democratic socialism." A lot of ingrates.

@007kingifrit Well, I'm bored at home, so why not. I'll preface this by saying this is only about the video itself and not about my political opinions. First of all, think of the entire purpose of this video. What does it want you to think? First we need to define "The Left", which in this video is not specifically defined, but is obviously referencing the political identity. From the Wikipedia definition of left-wing politics this means anyone who believes in creating social justice through redistributive economics (and more but that's the gist). Whether or not you agree with that, we start with a narrative that generalizes everyone with these specific beliefs. Next, from their provided sources, the link that is supposed to prove their overall statement about "the left's" opinion leads nowhere, and the only other article that isn't just cited as a source for the historical events they recount is a BBC article that, when you read it, gives off little emotion one way or another. So there is no evidence presented for their claims and yet they are presented in a manner similar to many factual videos, and by a smart-looking old man with a suit and glasses, so you are more likely to believe what they are saying is true. In any case, it is almost entirely impossible to generalize such a large group of people based off of some or all of their political beliefs alone. This video not only wants you to do that, it wants you to believe that this group of people is illogical and irrational at the very least. They want you to be angry. Looking at this comment section, many people are. Having elicited an emotional response, what do they gain? Well, you'll want to continue watching their videos because they are the only ones spreading this information which is, to you, horrible. You may think now that "The Left" is trying to purposly make your country weaker. That would indeed be terrible. So you follow, like and subscribe, and give money to your money to them and form an identity with them because you, of course, want to be Strong, Logical, and Intelligent. And it is implied in this video that you can't be any of those if you are "The Left". In short, this video is complete, total, unabashed propaganda. These people profit off of you and you only get sucked into anger, resentment, and hatred of your fellow people. Am I saying that right-wing politics are bad? No. Nor am I saying left wing politics are good. I am only thinking of this specific video. If the subject was "The Right" and some random thing about them my opinion would remain the same. It's propaganda. What is my point, then? Learn to take these videos with a grain of salt. Examine your specific political beliefs and learn more about them so you can make unbiased and logical decisions. Think of what someone has to gain from you before you believe them In short: Get your political information from somewhere else so you can get real facts, I don't care what your political stance is

I think I'm being censored Ok never mind it was a glitch. "Why does the left hate Israel' Maybe it has to do with the fact that the Israeli military kills peaceful Palestinian protestors, maybe it's the fact that there was a law passed that declares Israel "a state for the Jews", which literally makes Israel an ethnostate "Israel became bad when they won the war of 1967" No pretty sure there was more criticism of Israel from the left when it started annexing Palestinian land and not giving citizens equal rights. There are orders from the Israeli military to criminalize any opposition to the occupation including press reports or speech Maybe it's the fact that Israel influences policy in America and abroad. The anti semitic awareness act signed by Trump in 2018 effectively bans criticism of Israel in higher education. Going by this video's logic the only reason that the left hated Nazi Germany was because they were strong, even though clearly that's clearly not the case. Obviously what some Palestinians believe in presently and what they did in Munich is unforgivable but that doesn't excuse the things done by the Israeli government Because it's not like they're just doing this without any provocation. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't like Israel that much if your people were being annexed from your country, peaceful protestors were being shot and you not being given equal rights, being put in concentration camps Alright on to cuba Hey I don't know if anyone has considered this but maybe the reasons Cuba's economy was so bad is because of the decade's long embargo, the embargo deprived Cubans of lower costs food and other goods they could be bought from the united States 1 billion lost from potential exports, another 250 million lost in potential exports of fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide. www.cato.org/publications/speeches/four-decades-failure-us-embargo-against-cuba The only people you will find supporting the authoritarian measures that Cuba imposed on it's people are tankies That's not to say Cuba is all bad though for example, when Cuba wrote their constitution it involved broad discussions with over six million cuban people, this resulted in over 16,000 amendment suggestions. Cuba has about 165 municipal assemblies those assemblies have election every 2 and a half years, Cuba's election turnout is 95% Azure scapegoat goes into detail his video is in the link below mnpost.info/zone/Z8ezqs6PeZhomqQ/video Alright here we go with the race compass, an amazing strawman by saying that the left believes that black people can't be racist, Dennis Prager in this video "liberals not Leftists" but then he says that the entire left thinks that black people can't be racist, it's usually woke white liberals or woke lefties that believe that. The left is not a hive mind, Leftists have been infighting since 1917, It is much easier for right wingers to fall in line If you think that the only reason that the left supports Palestinian rights is because Palestinians aren't white then you're actually really dumb, if you see my earlier points you see what the Israeli government is doing to Palestinians. There was actually a lot of support for Israel on the left, the Democratic Socialists of america was described as being the best place to be pro Israel, but when Israel started doing what It id, support dwindled, because the left has historically been on the side of the oppressed and against the oppressors Now onto class. What is the argument being mad here exactly, good in what sense? I don't think Marxists judge entirely based on class, I think it has more to do with the material conditions. For example you could be a cattle herder In Northern Nigeria who is also a radical islamist, rather than looking at class I think most Marxists will look at the material conditions that made him that way. For example Muslims in America are more progressive than Christians in America, not saying that their aren't conservative Muslims in America but on a wider scale much more progressive than Christians. Muslims in America come from countries much more egalitarian than places in the middle east or northern and sub saharan africa, they're positively welcomed by people of many different faiths and some are very easy to convert from being radical islamists, this egalitarianism combined with a general atmosphere of progressivism is what makes a Muslim in America different from a Muslim in northern Nigeria No the left doesn't think rich people are all evil they just have far more than they need to survive and that the wealth thy have should be redistributed to the poorest in society combined with government investment in jobs so they have a decent standard of living.

Actually this argument supports that the left are more precise in making judgments about countries . They have 3 measures. 1)How a country uses its power 2) How a country treats different races 3) How much class mobility a country has. Its actually much easier to quantify than a moral compass. which is inconsistent in its operational definitions.

And didn't even win so basically cost thousands of American Lives and Millions of Virtnamese lives for absolutely nothing. And America stayed in the war long after they knew they wouldn't win...what would you call that. Being a morally right? Such flawed logic.

If Palestinians are this big bad...than why are more Palestinians killed by IDF every year than the other way around. I honestly thought when I saw the statistics that Israeli's would have much high casualties but thats not the case. And I have to assume the Palestinian is underreporting if anything since they dont lack the proper military and civilian services to account for all deaths.

Imperialism means making someone part of your empire. When the US conquered Japan we didn't put our people in charge and say "Japan, destroy our auto-industry." When the US defeated Iraq we didn't say "Iraq, let Russia use your airspace and don't let us keep any combat troops in your country." Interventionism is not imperialism. The US has French and Spanish interventionism to thank for its own existence.

I see all these compasses as a manifestation of oppressor vs oppressed. Dominant culture vs minority, men vs women, white vs black, strait vs lgbtq+, conservatives vs wokes/activists. In all these cases, the virtue signaling of the victimhood strategy leaves absolutely no place for criticism or accountability, very cut and dry. Of course, that excludes the white heterosexual male who is perceived as the oppressor in chief and has it seems never done anything good without hurting others.
