Radio host Dennis Prager appeared on The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday to discuss radical Islam and the rise of the Islamic State, but said the discussion would likely be deemed Islamophobic by many in higher education.
"I don't think anything about it should be considered controversial ... not if you believe in telling the truth," he said. "[But] everything we have said, at any university, virtually any -- not at Brigham Young, not at Liberty University, not at Yeshiva University -- but at virtually any university would be dismissed as Islamophobia."
Prager, who was a Fellow at Columbia University’s School of International Affairs, said "they don't care about truth at the university."
"Having taught at college, having attended an Ivy League institution for graduate school ... you're not getting real life there," Prager continued. "I believe that the universities have become seminaries. There are Christian seminaries to produce Christians. The university seminaries are to produce a person of the left. That's really the purpose now, and it's sad. There are individual exceptions, in terms of professors and a handful of universities. But that's the aim."
The radio host said he started Prager University to "undo the damage of the university by telling the truth in five-minute courses,"and Beck played one of the videos, which was seen millions of times on YouTube and called the "most important video about Israel ever made."
"Our kids are not getting any kind of education," Beck said. "We barely have an education because of the system that we all grew up in."
Prager agreed: "This is what troubles me as much as anything -- the universities."
