Radio Titan Dennis Prager ‘Wanted’ to Expose Himself to Get Natural Immunity

Western Journal

Published

on

Conservative talk show host Dennis Prager announced on Monday during his daily nationally syndicated radio program that he had contracted COVID-19.

A vocal opponent of coronavirus vaccine mandates, especially for young people and those previously infected with the virus, Prager, 73, has refused the vaccine and intentionally sought speaking engagements and events throughout the pandemic whenever and wherever he could.

“I have hugged thousands of strangers … at rallies around the country. I have posed for photos with strangers in the thousands at speeches. And finally I got it from somebody,” he said while broadcasting the show from his home on Monday.

The radio host said he had taken the monoclonal antibody treatment Regeneron, which he said President Joe Biden has made “almost impossible for people to get … because the man is evil.”

From the start of the pandemic, Prager has been a harsh critic of the Democrats’ response to COVID-19 — such as small-business-crushing lockdowns and vaccine and mask mandates — but an enthusiastic promoter of therapeutics to treat the virus.

He began taking hydroxychloroquine prophylactically shortly after then-President Donald Trump mentioned in a March 19, 2020, news conference that the anti-malarial drug could prove to be a promising treatment for COVID-19.

Prager has interviewed prominent proponents for HCQ on his show, particularly Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, who came up with the “Zelenko Protocol,” a concoction of low-dose hydroxychloroquine, zinc and azithromycin that he said resulted in fewer hospitalizations when given in the early stages of mild-to-moderate COVID infection.

And in November 2020, Prager added ivermectin to his personal regimen.

“I believe that what I had decided to do over the course of the last year-and-a-half, I believe, has been justified,” Prager said at his show’s opening on Monday. “I wanted to achieve natural immunity, which is by far the more robust immunity that one could have against COVID or any virus.”

He referenced a recent piece published in The Washington Post in which Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at the John Hopkins School of Medicine, argued the superiority of natural immunity over vaccination.

Makary cited over 15 studies supporting his assertion, including a recent 700,000-person study in Israel that found that those previously infected with COVID-19 were 27 times less likely to contract the virus again than those who were vaccinated.

Prager most likely contracted COVID-19 while at a campaign event in Colorado on Oct. 10 with Republican Colorado gubernatorial candidate Heidi Ganahl, the front-running challenger to Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis’ re-election, according to the Denver Gazette.

The hourlong “sold-out” campaign event, called “The Future of Colorado,” was held at a Marriott hotel in Colorado Springs with about 100 attendees.

A representative of Ganahl’s campaign told the Gazette, “We have not been made aware of anyone who attended the event outside of Dennis’ inner circle getting the virus. We are reaching out to all those who attended to make sure they are informed.”

On Friday, Colorado had the 14th-highest rate in the nation for COVID infections, the outlet reported, with 71.6 percent of eligible Coloradans fully vaccinated, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health.

While up on stage with Ganahl, Prager ironically said, “I’ve been trying to get COVID for a year-and-a-half.”



Although Prager strongly opposes the Biden administration’s draconian vaccine mandates and the media’s fear-mongering regarding the virus and its demonizing of unvaccinated Americans, he has never insisted that the listeners to his program follow his example and forgo the vaccine.

“If you have co-morbidities or are of a certain age, and you are not prepared to take the therapeutics, you should consider taking the vaccine. That would be my position,” Prager said during his radio show Monday.

“It can hurt you. I know people that it has hurt. But it can also help. It’s somewhat of a crapshoot. But I don’t want you to take nothing,” he said.

“I think I am a living example of how effective taking these therapeutics is. I am not young. I admit I am healthy otherwise, but I am in the category of people who should be most concerned, theoretically,” Prager said. “And I am concerned. That’s why I’ve been taking all these therapeutics.”

State Trooper Came Mere Inches from Losing His Life, Dashcam Caught the Whole Thing

Western Journal

Published

on

Every cop knows that death rides with him on every patrol, emerging out of nowhere when a shift may seem routine.

For one Idaho state trooper, that moment almost came on Wednesday along Interstate 84 near the town of Meridian, according to the Idaho Stateman.

Dashcam video of the incident shows that in less time than it takes to read this sentence, the trooper and a motorist he was helping on the shoulder of the highway had to jump over a concrete median as a pickup truck came barreling toward them.

According to an Idaho State Police news release, the trooper had been helping a motorist with a flat tire.

The officer was wearing a yellow safety vest. His patrol car had its emergency lights on and was parked behind the Toyota with the flat tire.

What the dashcam video does not show was described in the release.

“One vehicle began to slow prior to passing the patrol car. That vehicle was hit by another, causing a chain reaction of four eastbound vehicles,” the release said.

But that was not all.

“Two involved pickups were pushed left, sideswiping the parked patrol car and hitting the rear of the Toyota.”

The trooper was taken to a hospital with injuries sustained when he vaulted the concrete barrier, but was sent home with what the release called “minor injuries.”

The owner of the wrecked Toyota was also injured leaping out of the truck’s way, but was not taken to a hospital.

The wreckage from the chain reaction crash blocked the highway for about 90 minutes.

“Traffic stops are very high risk. They’re necessary to keep people safe on the road and to help those stranded, but we need motorists’ help so we can all go home at night,” Idaho State Police Sgt. Brandalyn Crapo said.

“Slowing down and moving over for emergency vehicles and workers isn’t just a courtesy, it’s the law. Drivers need to be alert to emergency lights and vehicles and always alert to what’s happening around them. That keeps all of us safe.”

Idaho law requires drivers to slow down, change lanes or both when passing police and other emergency vehicles that are stopped on the roadway.

Store Apologizes After Employee Sign with Instructions on How to Deal with Africans Goes Public

Western Journal

Published

on

An Australian store has been forced to apologize for a sign that warned staff to sound an alert if an African customer entered the store.

An IGA store in Melbourne was pilloried on social media because of a sign behind the counter that read, “If an African customer comes to the bottle shop, presses [sic] the button for assistant immediately! Minimum two staffs in front while we serve Africans,” the sign read, according to Australia’s News.com.au.

In its reporting on the sign, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. said the sign had been in place for three years before it was noticed by anyone and became a social media furor.

“Sure they’re independently owned but the African community should be allowed to feel safe and comfortable at their local supermarket,” a TikTok comment read.

The ABC report quoted the store manager, who it did not name, as offering apologies for any offense.

“We don’t really mean for this, we apologize for what we’ve done. I’m sorry it will never happen again like that,” he said. “I’ve done the wrong thing for the public, we should not do like this.”

The manager said he should have told employees to hit the button if they saw a group of strangers in the store.

“It is my mistake. Big mistake,” he said.

A poster using the name Jack he on Twitter said he was the store manager and offered an explanation.

“Im store manager iGA sunshine west, we got robbed by 5 African men, one of the staff had a gun put to our head, we were scared, Im sorry for that i done,i told the ABC news all the reason behind this, But i don’t see any main point been reported, this is unfair, unfair news,” he tweeted.

ABC reported that a spokesperson for wholesaler Metcash, which operates the IGAs, said the company had the offending sign removed.

“This type of behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in any IGA store across the country,” a spokesman said.

“As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting local communities across Australia, we will ensure ALL IGA employees continue to create a shopping environment where all are welcome and equal,” the spokesman said.

The store now has a new note.

“We would like to apologies [sic] to anyone that got offended by the note we had … it was not our intention to offend,” the note says.
