Since Ben Shapiro’s meltdown on a BBC show with Neil Smith, the Internet has been chattering about this latest outrage incident, with many people on the Right coming to his defense.
BLP coverage of this encounter shows this is just another case of Shapiro losing his cool when confronted with an opponent that will actually put him outside of his comfort zone.
In light of this recent exchange, several individuals in the liberty fold and Dissident Right have reminded people of Shapiro’s gatekeeping ways. It’s easy to symphathize with Shapiro given the Left’s absolutely unhinged behavior in recent years. However, many on the Right would be wise to not label Shapiro as a hero that must be blindly supported.
Today’s environment of outrage politics sometimes makes people forget about certain pundit’s long-track record of PC grand-standing. Shapiro being one of them.
For example, in 2016, Shapiro lumped Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, and Ron Paul with the likes of the Alt-Right in a lazy smear attempt to discredit their ideas that fall outside the realm of acceptable opinions.
It wasn’t too long ago that Shapiro joined the PC mob in believing that ABC was correct in firing RoseAnne Barr after poking fun of Valerie Jarrett, a former senior advisor of Barack Obama.
A seasoned counter-signaler, Shapiro also came to filmaker James Gunn’s defense after journalists like Mike Cernovich uncovered a series of tweets where Gunn non-chalantly talks about pedophilia.
Shapiro has a massive audience which makes him an influencer for millions. As a result, many individuals will emulate his tactics and take his talking points at face value. Mark Twain noted how people will blindly follow certain political authorities:
In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.
For that reason, Shaprio’s past behavior should make individuals skeptical about his faithfulness to fighting the PC establishment and its many minions. Often times, the biggest enemies against PC culture come from within.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
