Dennis Prager is slow to take offense

While he fights for what he believes in, Dennis Prager doesn’t indulge in feuds. He doesn’t say ugly things in private that become public and embarrass him. He’s never been caught in flagrantly unethical behavior. He’s never had a scandal. He’s never ranted out of control publicly. He doesn’t sign showy public letters condemning this and that. He’s not touchy. He’s solid.

Contrast the great offense that Prager’s friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach took at Canadian provocateur Michael Coren with Dennis Prager’s consistent love for Coren. “He is a very important part of the Canadian media,” said Dennis May 6, 2013.

It’s hard to imagine Dennis Prager walking out of a speaking engagement after getting a request to step farther away from the mic as Rabbi Boteach did Feb. 19, 2012 at LimmudLA. It’s also hard to imagine Prager calling out an institution over its low speaking fee offer as Rabbi Boteach did with the American Jewish University in December of 2010. Dennis avoids these types of conflicts.
