Dennis Prager, syndicated radio host and founder of PragerU, joined Glenn on Tuesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to weigh in on the volatile political climate in America today.
"I think that the crisis in America is the greatest in my lifetime and the greatest since the actual Civil War," Prager said.
"I never engage in hyperbole," he explained. "I may, like anyone, be wrong. But I took a vow 35 years ago when I started radio, that … I [would] try to tell the truth. And I've never been accused of a lie, I'm proud to tell you. I've been called every word, but not liar. And I took another vow, don't even exaggerate, because it works for about a year. But gradually people understand, 'He doesn't really mean that. He's just overstating the case. So, I am not overstating when I say we are in a civil war in the United States."
He noted the tremendous "gap between the left and the rest of the country" and gave an example of the now "normative" practice of not calling children "boys or girls" in schools because it's considered wrong to impose a gender identity.
"That is sick to the point of child abuse," he said. "We are watching crazy people take our country."
