Anti-Trump neoconservative pundit Ben Shapiro made an attempt to debate someone other than a teenage socialist on a college campus, and was immediately regretful.
He made an appearance on BBC with host Andrew Neil, during which he was faced with questions about past Tweets which were unkind to Palestinians in the context of whether he was lowering the bar for public discourse. Shapiro, known for his Zionism, immediately took offense to the line of questioning.
“You know, honestly, this is a giant waste of time in the sense that the entire interview is designed for you to shout slogans or old things that I’ve said at me,” Shapiro said. “I don’t see how this forwards the debate. You talk about, you talk about undermining the public discourse – it seems to me that simply going through and finding lone things that sound bad out of context and then hitting them with – and then hitting people with them – is a way for you to make a quick buck on BBC of off the fact that I’m popular, and no one has ever heard of you.”
Shapiro pulled rank again after he was questioned further.
“You can think whatever you want of me,” he said. “Frankly, I don’t care – I don’t frankly give a damn what you think of me since I’ve never heard of you.”
Shortly thereafter, Shapiro cut the interview short.
As it turns out, debating someone with more intellect than a leftist millennial isn’t in Shapiro’s wheelhouse. He proved as much at the end of last year, when we attempted to take on Tucker Carlson, and failed miserably.

Judge Dismisses Transgender Woman’s “Discrimination” Lawsuit Against Miss USA Pageant
Miss USA remains a pageant for biological females only.
Last Thursday a federal judge dismissed a transgender woman’s lawsuit that accused the Miss USA pageant of discrimination.
Anita Noelle Green is a biological male who claimed that “she” had a right to participate in the pageant’s competitions, but US District Judge Michael W. Mosman found that the law is not on “her” side.
Judge Mosman ruled that Miss United States of America LLC, a private corporation, cannot be forced to violate its mission of promoting “natural-born” females.
“I view it as an association that cannot under the Constitution be required to allow plaintiff to participate in what defendant says is a contradiction of that message,” he said.
Green competed in the 2018 Miss Montana pageant and won the 2019 Miss Earth Elite Oregon competition—but Miss USA denied “her” application. Green’s lawyer attempted to argue that the Miss USA corporation is predominately a commercial business that’s granted “minimal protection,” not a First Amendment-protected “expressive association.”
Judge Mosman, however, disagreed and found the pageant corporation to be a predominately expressive association, meaning that it is engaged in expressive activity and promotes a message.
In related news, Big League Politics recently covered Sen. Rand Paul’s confrontation with transgender HHS nominee Rachel Levine about “her” unwillingness to say that minors shouldn’t be bypassing their parents and making their own decisions about transitioning:
At Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Rachel Levine, a transgender doctor and Biden’s Assistant HHS Secretary nominee, asking if “she” supports minors overriding their parents on transitioning to the opposite sex.
Levine’s response was as follows: “Senator, transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field, and if confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care…”
