SHAMEFUL: Never Trumper Ben Shapiro Quotes a Nazi to Smear ‘America First’ Patriots

Shapiro gave a “Basket of Deplorables”-style speech last night.

Neoconservative pundit Ben Shapiro blasted “America First” patriots as racists and anti-Semites during a speech he gave at Stanford University last night, where he borrowed themes from failed Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s infamous “Basket of Deplorables” speech.

Shapiro picked the most racist quotes he could find, refusing to attribute them to any one specific source, in order to denigrate “America First” conservatives during his speech, even quoting testimony from a Nazi killer in one instance to back up his point.

The clip can be seen here:

Shapiro also echoed the sentiments of David French, a fellow Never Trumper, in arguing that the LGBT movement’s “Drag Queen Story Hour” pedo-grooming events should be permitted in public libraries, and to ban them would somehow be a betrayal of conservative values.

While Shapiro was – as usual – talking out of both sides of his mouth, it is clear that he has capitulated on key issues in recent years. Conservative Inc. is throwing in the towel on border security and mass immigration, and Shapiro has received his orders to push the propaganda in favor of flooding America with the third world.

While Shapiro claims his opponents are like the radical Left, he regularly appropriates their rhetoric in order to attack opponents on the Right who are not owned by Conservative Inc. The opening of his Stanford speech last night sounds like it could have been recited by Hillary Clinton about Trump supporters.

“No one should have any illusions about what’s really going on here. The names may have changed… Racists now call themselves “racialists.” White supremacists now call themselves “white nationalists.” The paranoid fringe now calls itself “alt-right.” But the hate burns just as bright,” Clinton said in a 2016 speech. “And now Trump is trying to rebrand himself as well. Don’t be fooled.”

Around the same time that Clinton made her speech, Shapiro echoed Clinton’s talking points and smeared a list of individuals and entities as “alt-right,” including Donald Trump as well as Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, Mike Cernovich, Alex Jones, and Breitbart News.

Shapiro has stood against the “America First” philosophy ever since Trump started running for office, lecturing patriotic Americans that it is wrong for them to stand for their country and their people.

“If you want America to succeed because America is based on a matchless idea of human freedom and the governmental checks and balances that maintain it, that’s one thing; if you want America to succeed because you believe there is some superiority that attaches to those born within our borders, that’s something else entirely. And when you attach Constitution-less “America first” philosophy to zero-sum, conspiratorial economics and politics, all that’s left is to identify an enemy to blame,” Shapiro wrote in a 2016 op/ed blaming Trump for the rise of anti-semitism.

“Trumpism breeds conspiracism; conspiracism breeds anti-Semitism. Trump is happy to channel the support of anti-Semites to his own ends,” Shapiro wrote, before adding his hope that “anti-Semitism on the right” would “slink back beneath its rock when Trump is defeated.”

Once a Never Trumper, always a Never Trumper. There may be no more pernicious and subversive enemy to President Trump’s MAGA agenda than this weaselly globalist neocon.

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

Published

on

A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.

Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.

Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.

Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.

Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.

In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
