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.

Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death

Published

on

On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.

The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.

“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.

Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”

On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.

“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”

Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.

“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”

Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:

Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
