Ben Shapiro. Another one of those conservatives who thinks he's a mighty intellectual, but actually he's just a big do*checanoe.

FYI. This more theoretical about "police culture" from the National Police Foundation.

In addition to being a total douche, he's actually very bright. Graduated high school at 16 or something. Plays the violin. Money changes everything. :lol:

And why is anyone seeing Schultz and Charlamagne as well informed minds in all this? What would either of them know about the issues that plague US policing?


I remember a Brilliant Idiots episode where they spent like an hour calling Schultz out for pushing dumb alt-right politics. Was that a bit? Either way dude ain't a voice to be taken seriously in my book. It wasn't even all that long ago.

Every time I've ever heard him speak it was pseudo alt right nonsense so no I don't think it was a bit. He's a plain old white comedian idk why anyone would expect anything different.

He's very booksmart maybe. I've heard him speak and seen things he's wrote and he's dumb as hell though. Call it Ben Carson syndrome.

He’s an intellectual like Carl from Family Guy is an intellectual. A serial regurgitator of useless info meant to dismiss the concerns of women and black people. He appeals to the soft racist. Fancy wording to reinforce deep-seated bigotry.

He’s young, inexperienced, and lacks common sense. These young prodigies can also be messed up individuals socially. He’s trying to succeed in a medium (right wing conservative media) where you have to suspend your belief in facts and have to constantly come up with bogus explanations in order to keep up the charade.

What about Richard Spencer? Now there's a bright young man, from a comfortable and educated background, who really excelled "intellectually" early in life.

I'm posting this only because this dude is seen as a thought leader in conservative spaces. The types of people who think they aren't racist, and just go where the "facts" lead them.

I think it's worth discussing, because I think the argument he's making is pretty much counterfeit, but it's what black Americans and others who want to see change are up against, by and large.


Anytime someone wants to parrot Ben Shapiro as some great through leader and patron saint of rationale discourse, never forget how the snowflake lost his **** and stormed off when he was questioned about his beliefs. Not to mention he called a right wing journalist a leftist because you know Shapiro is completely full of ****

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/ben-shapiro-bbc-andrew-neil_n_5cd58942e4b0796a95daa057

Ben Shapiro To Chairman Of Britain's Most-Read Right Wing Magazine: 'You're On The Left'


After Neil asked him about the “heartbeat bill” that just passed in Georgia, Shapiro, who is anti-abortion even in cases of rape, flipped out.

“Are you an objective journalist or an opinion journalist?” began Shapiro, before talking over Neil. Shapiro insisted that Neil be “honest about your own bias,” as the host calmly explained that his “job is to question those who have strong views and put an alternative to them.”


“You purport to be an objective journalist. The BBC purports to be an objective, down the middle network,” he said. “It obviously is not and it never has been. And you as a journalist are proceeding to call one side of the political spectrum ignorant, barbaric and sending us back to the Dark Ages. Why don’t you just say that you’re on the left?”

When Ben Shapiro can’t control the conversation or narrative he’s exposed as the thin skinned dork he is. Anyone that’s a fan of his is a **** moron. You can quote me on that.

Imagine what the cops would do to poor black people?

Btw defund the police is the worst marketing strategy in the history of man like andrew shultz said. Charla said it best: remix the police.

They did remix the police it was runaway slave patrols and they remixed it into the modern police just like they reimagined and remixed slavery into mass incarceration Idk if we can handle the latest way they try remix oppression

Defund is a bad marketing strategy because it actually calls for something direct instead of vague nothings

Basically. Like what remix of the police can possibly be effective without completely slashing police budgets?

And why is anyone seeing Schultz and Charlamagne as well informed minds in all this? What would either of them know about the issues that plague US policing?
Well Chara is a black man in his 40s, that grew up in the dirt roads of south Carolina , had multiple run ins with the police, has a felony record, that changed his life around.

Now, i hope you are a black man from the from these impoverished areas. That you are not some white/middle class tourist playing "society games" with the black community.

I hope you are someone who has to live with the consequences of these decisions.

Ben is a hypocrite. He constantly turns into a "snowflake" and throws "facts don't care about your feelings" out the window whenever Israel is brought up.
