“ultimately what they want is an apology and they want you backpedaling”
Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager have been making rounds in media, promoting their film project “No Safe Spaces” which focuses on free speech and social justice warrior culture on college campuses.
They appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show last week and described a new method for dealing with the left. Simply don’t play their game. Don’t apologize.

‘Don’t Apologize’ – Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla on Defending Free Speech Against the Left’s Attacks
Conservative commentator Dennis Prager and comedian Adam Carolla discussed combating the left’s attacks on freedom of speech during an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson that aired Wednesday night.
“You can say whatever you want like you could say whatever you want 20 years ago but you won’t have a job on Monday,” said Carolla, responding to a question from Carlson about whether or not Americans are “less free” to so speak than 20 years ago.
“At a certain point you cannot let the left intimidate you,” added Prager. “And when you don’t they go crazy because they are so used to being able to intimidate. That’s his point and I second it.”
To Carolla, conceding to the left is like making deals with terrorists when they take hostages.
“Also, once you sort of put it out there like you’re a country who doesn’t negotiate with terrorists when they take hostages, they take less hostages,” said the comedian. “Once you put it out there like, ‘hey, I’m a comedian. I have a podcast. I say what I want and I won’t apologize,’ they leave you alone because ultimately what they want is an apology and they want you backpedaling. If you just sort of stand up like any bully, it’s not satisfying. I say outrageous things all day long on my podcast. People say to me, ‘how does that work?’ I say, ‘well, I don’t apologize so I’m not on their list of people who need to apologize.’”

You’ll notice Prager used Trump as a nearly perfect example of this method.
Here’s more on that from the FOX News Insider:
‘The Ultimate Nemesis of the Left’: Dennis Prager Says Trump ‘Marches On’ Despite Any Backlash
Prager — who’s film “No Safe Spaces” with comedian Adam Carolla explores the suppression of free speech on college campuses — said to Tucker Carlson that Trump “marches on” despite any backlash from the left.
“[Trump] has said some ridiculous things, even some bad things. Fully acknowledged,” said Prager. “Nevertheless, he does not apologize to the left. He is the ultimate nemesis of the left because he doesn’t care what they say.”
He said that those on the left wish invoking fear to President Trump would work, and they then resort to more aggressive tactics.
Prager said that today, there’s more fear of those on the left than “the fear of God.”
“There’s a vicious cycle taking place on the part of — not of liberals — but of leftists,” said Prager, who is also the founder of nonprofit PragerU.
Carolla added that it’s “insane” that the left has talked people into thinking they need to preface every talking point with a defense.
