Neoconservative commentator Ben Shapiro defended calling President Donald Trump and other popular anti-establishment conservatives “alt-right” during a speech he gave at Boston University on Wednesday night.
A questioner, who Shapiro smeared as a “white nationalist” in his Buzzfeed-esque video title on YouTube, asked Shapiro about a social media post he made in 2016 in which he called people such as Trump, former Congressman Ron Paul, former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, and author Ann Coulter “alt-right.” Shapiro refused to apologize and stood by his statements.

“Back in 2016, the fact of the matter is people like Ron Paul who has a long history of extremism… If you look at Donald Trump, who I said overtly in 2016 flirted with the alt-right because he did in April and May of 2016, that was a dated tweet,” Shapiro said.
Shapiro noted his happiness over nationalists like former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon being expelled from the administration.
“Donald Trump, thank God, has forcibly expelled many of the people who are alt-right adjacent like Steve Bannon from his administration, which is a very very good thing,” Shapiro said.
The prominent Never Trumper then explained what he means by alt-right, and what he classified President Trump under when he included him on his list of alt-right figures.
“The alt-right is a very specific viewpoint that sees the problem in America as a problem of demographics that suggests that white nationalism is the answer to that problem, that suggests that the problem with immigration is not a problem with culture or assimilation. The problem in America is a problem of what race the people are who are coming into the country,” Shapiro said.
The entirety of Shapiro’s response can be seen here:
Shapiro has a history of making statements against President Trump long after 2016. He continues his work as a Never Trumper, but just does so in a more insidious manner.
He threw President Trump under the bus after the Mueller Report was released clearing him of any Russian collusion:
Every Trump scandal follows this pattern. It holds just as true for Stormy Daniels as it does for Russia and obstruction. Do something bad and embarrassing, then shield yourself with other bad and embarrassing behavior.

Shapiro has also pushed leftist talking points about President Trump’s response to the infamous Charlottesville rally in 2017, when the President defended individuals who showed up to protest the removal of Confederate statues.
“What [Trump] did say is that there was good people on both sides of the marches in Charlottesville,” Shapiro said.
Cartoonist Scott Adams has debunked the lies promoted by Shapiro and his leftist cohorts about President Trump.

Shapiro is continuing his well-funded efforts to subvert the Trump movement and defame his enemies with the same terms the Left uses.
Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
