Neocon Ben Shapiro Throws Another Anti-Trump Fit on Twitter

Published

on

Ben Shapiro continues to show off his neocon credentials.

In a tweet storm on February 28th, Shapiro attacked Trump’s latest summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. This meeting discussing de-nuclearization in North Korea ended abruptly with Trump leaving the negotiating table without any agreement.

Shapiro went as far to say, “Trump should be grateful for Cohen distracting everyone from the massive moral and diplomatic debacle that just unfolded in Vietnam”, referring to the media’s obsession over the Michael Cohen testimony conducted before Congress.

The gatekeeping commentator then derided Trump’s efforts as “amateur hour”. As a staunch Never Trumper, Shapiro will take advantage of any opportunity to lambast Trump. On foreign policy matters, where Shapiro neocon colors shine, he will always virtue signal his loyalty toward the political status quo.

For a start, Shapiro and his ilk have no business lecturing Trump on diplomacy. Neoconservative foreign policy has dominated during the past few decades and it has done nothing to fix relations with countries like North Korea.

Indeed, countries like North Korea and present-day Venezuela are emblematic of socialist failure. These country’s governing models are reprehensible and should be condemned. However, intervening in these countries or pushing manufactured regime change are sub-optimal strategies filled with unintended consequences.

Much to middle America’s dismay, the DC “experts” still don’t get this as they continue to waste hard-earned taxpayer dollars on foreign policy adventures. When John Bolton types derail negotiations in the North Korean case or saber-rattle in the Venezuelan case, it’s clear that neocons will do everything they can to revert to the same failed foreign policy approaches of yesteryear. That’s why they’ve made a concerted effort to infiltrate the Trump Administration and derails his America First agenda.

It would behoove neocon naysayers like Ben Shapiro to put their petty grievances with Trump to the side. After all, Trump has decades of negotiation experience in the private sector unlike most of these armchair pundits and self-proclaimed foreign policy wonks. Negotiation is a drawn-out process. Trump coming out with an agreement on the first attempt would be suspect.

As Trump himself had pointed out in The Art of the Deal, you have to be willing to walk away from the table in order to get a favorable deal. Talks of Trump’s negotiations being doomed are simply premature when considering his negotiation track record.

The fact that Trump was able to get Kim Jong-Un at the table in the first place, speaks volumes.

For that reason, Trump and company should continue the negotiations process.

Let’s be honest, we need more dialogue with nations, rogue or friendly. With someone who possesses Trump’s negotiating prowess, the U.S. can finally break free of the neocon foreign policy cycle.

For a seasoned neocon like Ben Shapiro, whose political existence is predicated on foreign policy conflicts, this is a nightmare scenario. That’s why we can only expect Shapiro to continue casting doubt on President Trump’s efforts to denuclearize North Korea.

A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter

Published

on

On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet

The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.

Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”

Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”

But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”

Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.

Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.

Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.

BLP previously reported on Big Tech attacking pro-gun groups as part of their plan to muzzle any form of right-wing expression.

As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
