On Friday's 'Overtime,' the online-only aftershow portion of HBO's "Real Time" with host Bill Maher, conservative commentator and nationally-syndicated radio host Dennis Prager received audience feedback for declaring the United States as the least-racist country and least anti-Semitic country in history.
Prager responds to a question about President Trump lying:
DENNIS PRAGER: The left-wing says I'll give you gigantic lies. That the United States is a racist country. This is a lie. This is a garguntum lie. This is the least racist multicultural, multiethnic country in the history of the world. That these people believe it is proof to me about how effective lying can be.
This is an unbelievably non-racist country. Have you people been to Asia? Did you people know that the Japanese did not allow one Vietnamese boatperson into Japan because they're not Japanese? We allowed them into America.
BILL MAHER, HOST: What is that? We're better than the Japanese?
PRAGER: No, we're better than everyone --
MAHER: What sort of dumb argument is that?
PRAGER: We are less racist than any country with many races. It is a lie --
MAHER: But you can still have some racism?
PRAGER: Of course there is racism. I'm a Jew. There are anti-Semites in America. It is a giant lie that America is anti-Semitic. I've taught Jewish History at Brooklyn College. I know it. I wrote two books on Judaism. This is the least anti-Semitic country Jews have ever lived in. To say that America is anti-Semitic is a lie. To say it is racist is a lie. These are giant left-wing lies.
