Ben Shapiro to anti-free speech protesters: "F*** your fascism"

Rebel Staff
 

"Here's my message to the bloviating jackasses outside: Toughen up, you spoiled brat snowflakes, if you actually want a better world."

That was a defiant Ben Shapiro's response to those who tried unsuccessfully to cancel then disrupt his speech at CalState yesterday.

The Daily Wire reports that its editor-in-chief, Ben Shapiro "spoke at California State University, Los Angeles on Thursday despite threats issued to him and students organizing the event, blockading protesters, and an initial cancellation by President William Covino—only overturned last minute to save face, and perhaps some legal troubles."

The story continues:

Shapiro, never one to back down, issued a blunt message directly to those actively shutting down freedoms guaranteed to all via the First Amendment: "F*ck your fascism.” (...)

Attendees and journalists were reportedly physically assaulted. One attendee claimed to have anti-Semitic slurs hurled his way when he took a call from a friend in Israel. Students lucky enough to attend had to be smuggled in four at a time through a back door. The fire alarm was also pulled during the speech in effort to shutdown the event.

Allways find it interesting how the enlightened progressives on the left are the ones who want to stop people from speaking if its an opposing view. Or propose jail if someone denies their view on climate change, or support divisive ideals, while claiming racism at every turn. And yet it is the conservatives who seem to be willing to hear all points of view, look at all the data, propose unity by treating everyone fairly, not just some groups, and in general have a more open mind and are willing to discuss the issues logically without resorting to name calling and obscenities.

It’s amazing how childish the left/ Liberal agenda has become. Slur, yell obscene comments and promote false facts in effort to block any alternative opinion or truthful fact. The corrupt progressive left is a cancer to society. Time to start DE-funding Universities that do not promote free speech at all levels. Students disrupting, threatening others or out right pulling alarms should be dealt with through expulsion. It’s one thing to have a different opinion it’s another to criminally obstruct.

Wish we had few Ben Shapiros here in Canada.It would piss off all the bigots and anti-Semitic dickheads who rule our higher institutions of learning. Maybe then there would be a chance for students to learn about things like freedom of speech and freedom of thought.

I think that all the Marxist professors were cheering them on.

If only those that want to stile another person’s speech could possibly understand that the table can be turned on them.

It they are successful in suppressing one persons’/groups’ free speech, then what is stopping yet another from suppressing their free speech at some time down the road?

Cognitive dissidence

Ahh yes the enlightened strike again, they prove how childish they are every time. Tired of these fascist fools who think they somehow have domain and control over what others can say. Who the hell do they think they are?

These deluded beings that populate modern day universities today – students, professors and administrators – do not get that they are socialists, or they ‘think’ socialism is a good thing, nor can you explain it to them – they will SHUT YOU DOWN as soon as you don’t fawningly conform to their speech codes and other totalitarian ideology – they don’t get their own hypocrisy. They do not get that the NAZIs were socialists – Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers’ Party; NSDAP) – even Wikipedia – whom I do not trust as far as I can throw them – incorrectly list the NAZI Party as “far right”. These BDS promoters do not get that they are becoming NAZIs themselves! The delusion is mind-boggling – like the idiots that shut down Anne Coulter’s speech on FREE SPEECH, at the University of Ottawa…and a myriad of other offensive examples.
Liberalism is a mental disorder – these people prove that truism every day!
Ben Shapiro – a modern day hero. A John Wayne type hero in a yarmulke and a shingle from Harvard Law…

Free Speech is alive and well in Canada, you can say what you like, as long as you don’t say it in public

Free speech is no longer free. The fight was won many years ago and now it needs another wave of soldiers.

I remember the fire alarm being pulled at the Ann Coulter event in Ottawa, some years back. Ironically, anti-free-speech protesters use the “you can’t shout fire in a crowded theater” argument, while literally shouting fire in a crowded theater.

God bless you Ben Shapiro! Keep telling it like it is, no matter how the Marxists try to shut you up.

Ben Shapiro – President after The Donald is done.
