Conservative radio talk show host Dennis Prager has taken to the airwaves to air his grievances about politically correctness and to mourn the loss of society’s use of racist language and offensive slurs. 

Prager, 71, who was born in Brooklyn and who hosts a show on the right-wing Salem Radio Network used his show to bemoan society no longer using using language coined during eras of slavery and segregation.

‘I’m going to start a movement to change the name Native Americans — not to mock Native Americans but mock people who change names all the time…’

‘How many names have Blacks gone through in my lifetime?…What was wrong with Negro? What was wrong with colored? African American? Black? Four different titles for the same human being. There’s no problem with any of them,’ Prager said in a clip from his radio show posted to Twitter. 

”You know, the NAACP is still the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People,’ Prager said. ‘And then African American — that changed, too. Does that have a dash, hyphen or not? I don’t remember what was connoted by having a hyphen or not.’ 

Earlier this year the controversial radio host complained that he was unable to use another racist insult.

‘It is idiotic that you cannot say the N-word,’ he said on his show in February  according to Media Matters.

‘The left has made it impossible to say the N-word any longer. That’s disgusting, it’s a farce. It’s the only word that you can’t say in the English language,’ he said.

 ‘Of course, you should never call anybody the N-word, that’s despicable. But to say the word? You cannot even say that the word is despicable. You have to say ‘the N-word.’  

‘It’s like conservatives don’t consider the history of anything and lack basic empathy for those experiences,’ wrote one Twitter user in response to the outburst. 

Twitter users were quick to roast Prager’s preaching.

‘Sir, you dropped your hood!’ one posted as a reference to the headgear worn by the white supremacist hate group, the Ku Klux Klan.

‘As a black woman, I often wonder why we live in the heads of white people like this. Then moms & granny constantly remind me that the folks who terrorized them back in the day are still very much alive today. Did he go through the names for white folks?’ asked another online poster. 

Prager who was known to oppose marriage equality was lambasted last month when he called the coronavirus lockdowns the ‘greatest mistake in the history of humanity’ in a Twitter post. 

In recent weeks, Prager was attempting to push the drug hydroxychloroquine as a way of treating the coronavirus before calling the lockdown ‘the greatest mistake’ in history.
