Like this?I like when he debates whacky libs, but sometimes he is way off on his thinking.
In the years between the enactment of NFA 34 and the close on the machine gun registry, there were literally something like two crimes committed with NFA items. One was a bank job using an anti-tank rifle to bust open a safe and the other was one shooting with a MG. Not to mention his pro-ERPO line because who needs due process?Writing in October 2017, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, Shapiro argued that "banning all guns would be unwise as well as immoral," but "we must balance the need and right to firearms with public policy concerns, including the risk that a machine gun will be used in public." Shapiro suggested that policy makers "should look at ways of enforcing federal laws banning the sale of guns to the mentally ill."
There's quite literally no one that agrees 100% with any of our positions on issues......Like this?

Good Gun Policy Starts With Reality
true.. the other night I had it on when I picked up my 14yr old HS freshman... (that little guy in my profile pic has grown a bit) he's like "oh.. you're listening to Ben Shapiro".. I said.. "you know him".. he replied "yeah.. I listen to him all the time"...Exactly. He is better than 99% of the talking heads on the idiot box. Still a right wing hero. Nobody bats 1000. And I guarantee he’s one of the best recruiters we have among the kiddies.
I find him boring. I would probably agree with most of what he has to say, but... he's just so boring and as you say milquetoast that I don't want to bother. There's so many great choices out there to listen to for alternative media.His milquetoast brand of conservatism bores me. If he wants to prove his superior debating skills he should try debating someone who isn't a dumb college lib. There are many right wing voices who want to challenge him.
I like both for different reasons......I find Steven Crowder way more interesting and entertaining.
MEH.Ben Shapiro = Enemy.
The most interesting result thus far has been the meltdown by Ben Shapiro last week, which was so bad he had to pull it from his YouTube channel. The comments were full of young people mocking him. Shapiro is probably the smartest of the con-men deployed by Conservative Inc., but he is also the most thin-skinned. Any push-back is met with a childish tantrum. Like Charlie Kirk, it suggests he is a hothouse flower, carefully protected by his handlers, in order to maintain the charade.
If you pay attention to his act, what comes through is he has a deep, subconscious hatred of white people. Take for example his promotion of the dubious claim that European civilization is defined by Judeo-Christian tradition. For most of Western history, Christianity and Judaism were at odds. In the early medieval period, Jews and Christians competed for converts. When the term Judeo-Christian came into use in the 17th and 18th century, it was as a Pauline pejorative against Catholicism.
Putting aside the history, what he is doing is rewriting the European past in order to make it dependent on his religious and ethnic traditions. You can have your Christianity, as long as it is accepting of Jews, which neuters the theologically. You can also have your Western chauvinism, as long as you make sure Jews are central characters in the narrative. Ben Shapiro’s view of Western civilization is colonial, as if he is allowing white people to have some conditional cultural heritage.
This becomes clear when Shapiro says “white civilization is nonsensical.” He says that “civilization is defined by culture, history and philosophy.” He is divorcing what he calls Western civilization from the people who created it. Like his sleight of hand swapping out Catholicism from the heart of European history, he is turning Western civilization into a gift inexplicably granted to the people of Europe. It is not something European people created, but something they received, like hitting the lottery.
There is an obvious implication to this train of thought. If white people are just lucky recipients of civilization, then they are not really deserving of it. This would explain Shapiro’s love for non-white immigration. Why shouldn’t everyone get a taste of this civilization thing? It’s only fair. When he says “he does not give a good damn about the so-called browning of America,” he is not entirely honest. In fact, he really cares, as he is in total support of it as an act of retributive justice.
You can never know what is in someone’s heart and it is entirely possible that Shapiro has not thought through any of this. It is increasingly clear that he is clever, but not a deep thinker. He possesses a vermin-like rapacity that is often mistaken for smart and ambitious in this degraded age. His act is therefore about presenting himself as a smart guy, who just happens to agree with an audience desperate to throw money at anyone showing them some respect. He’s just working the suckers.
Either way, the fact that these guys have no prepared responses to these questions has some larger implications. It is important the keep in mind that the same people bankrolling Shapiro and Kirk and all the rest are also bankrolling versions of these guys on the Left. Both sides of the Progressive morality play are financed by the same amorphous donor class that also underwrites the Imperial Capital. These morality plays are always the product of the Cloud People to control the Dirt People.
