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.
Federal Government Threatens to Defund Connecticut School Districts for Allowing Males to Compete in Female Sports
In a “letter of impending enforcement action” released on May 28, 2020, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights declared that The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference violated Title IX by “permitting the participation of certain male student-athletes” in girls’ track events at several school districts.
The federal investigation was kicked off last summer and were the result of the Alliance Defending Freedom filing a complaint on behalf three female students. The Justice Department took sides with female students during the past month.
The biological females sustained that the “Transgender Participation” policy, which was first enacted seven years ago, were stripped of their rights under Title IX by allowing “boys who are male in every biological and physiological respect” compete in their sports, provided that they “claim a female gender identity.”
The CIAC policy started to yield troubling results when two biological males who identified as girls began dominating girls’ track meets. This policy is less stringent than the NCAA’s transgender policy, which mandates males to take testosterone-suppressing hormones for at least a year before participating in female sports competitions.
Three school districts violated Title IX by also participating in CIAC athletic events. “Glastonbury, Canton, and Danbury placed female student-athletes in athletic events against male student-athletes, resulting in competitive disadvantages for female student-athletes,” federal officials stated.
The athletic events in which the female student-athletes competed were coeducational; female student-athletes were denied the opportunity to compete in events that were exclusively female, whereas male student-athletes were able to compete in events that were exclusively male.
On top of that, three other districts – Hartford, Bloomfield and Cromwell – violated Title IX by allowing two biological males, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, compete on female teams per CIAC policy. According to the OCR, the conference and six districts “treated student-athletes differently based on sex.”
According to Greg Piper of the College Fix, “The letter uses pseudonyms for the students but all have been previously named. The girls filed a related lawsuit in February under their real names: Alanna Smith, Chelsea Mitchell and Selina Soule.”
The conference and six districts rejected “resolution agreements” with OCR, prompting the office to issue them “letters of impasse” on March 17. These are basically warning letters. The office initially gave them 10 days to comply. They then extended the deadline by an additional 30 days as a result of “their COVID-19-related duties and responsibilities.”
At the moment, OCR will either “initiate administrative proceedings” to block federal funding for the conference and districts or hand the cases over to the Justice Department in order for it to enforce federal law.
It’s good to see athletes finally get justice.
Thanks to the Left grabbing control of so many American institutions, Americans are subjected to a wide array of politically correct experiments.
This is a solid victory which should be built upon by the Trump administration and members of Congress.
