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.

SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
