Conservative talk show host Dennis Prager, at an event supporting Florida Governor Rick Scott, said sexual assault as a campus issue is a “big lie” invented by the “feminist left.”

At the Sarasota Hyatt, Prager began by calling the idea of a war on women “a gargantuan lie to get votes,” and then turned to his opinions on campus rape culture, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

“Did you ever look at what counts? An unwanted kiss is considered sexual assault. I’m stunned it’s only 1 in 5,” he said, according to the paper. “Four out of five women have not gotten an unwanted kiss?”

“My wife gets unwanted kisses every so often,” he added.

Prager said that the left, not the right, is insensitive to violence against women by “trivializing” the word rape.

“Culture of Rape? No. I’ll tell you why it exists on the campus, and that is: a rape of the culture,” Prager reportedly said.

The head of the Sarasota Republican Party, Joe Gruters, appeared to disapprove of Prager’s rant, telling the Herald-Tribune that campus sexual assault is a real problem.

“It should never have been part of a political discussion at the rally,” Gruters told the Florida newspaper.

    The ‘big lie’ isn’t the existence or severity of campus rape, it’s any denial of misogyny on Prager’s part…
