CAUGHT ON VIDEO: High school administrator dismisses students from Ben Shapiro speech to 'protect their feelings'

StaffRebel Columnist

Ben Shapiro was told he 'crossed a line' during a speech sponsored by Young America’s Foundation at Otay Ranch High School near San Diego.

Shapiro was talking about income mobility in the United States. “The reason people are permanently poor in the United States isn’t because they don’t have money, it’s because they suck with money. The reasons people are temporarily poor can vary,” he said to the crowd of 450 students.

“That’s not even controversial. If you’re permanently poor for your entire life, you’re not great with money by definition,” he continued before being interrupted by school administrator Dean Nafarrete.

“I’m sorry, Mr. Shapiro,” he began. “I’m at a point right now, where, quite frankly, I’m going to dismiss the students… With all due respect, Mr. Shapiro, Mr. Shapiro represents a narrative that he’s providing to all you guys based on his opinions, what he believes, what he wants to share with all of you. I know that the education was there for all of you to understand, the left side, right side, whatnot, but also the opportunity was allowed for him to impress some of his opinions on certain things… I think what this is getting into now, it’s starting to cross a line.”

Shapiro asked “what line would that be”, but Nafarrete continued to tell students they could leave. This received boos from the crowd to the school's administrator.

According to Breitbart half of the students stayed and Nafarrete told Shapiro that he dismissed the students to 'protect their feelings.'

“This is why young Americans are moving left,” said Shapiro. “The left has hijacked our educational system from the bottom up. It doesn’t start in college. It doesn’t even start in high school. Teaching American children that they are victims of a cruel and unjust system is a nasty lesson few Americans unlearn. And apparently, if you attempt to teach that they have every opportunity in the freest nation in the history of the world to succeed, you will ‘cross the line.’”

Fascism in USA disguised as liberalism.

According to my Christian beliefs I’m supposed to have love in my heart, love my enemies, turn the other cheek…I struggle mightily with that sometimes…we’re all weak sinners.
That ‘school administrator’, and his ilk, sorely challenge my resolve to live up to what Christ taught us in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5 – 7 ), really challenges me…
I owe a debt of gratitude to the DEBORAH GRAUPNER’s of the world who regularly disseminate the hope and light that all this ugliness, pain and filth is merely an inevitable preparation for what is coming…the Kingdom of God – and the hope that holds out.
We need more big-brains with integrity, like my favorite intellectual, Ben Shapiro!

High School Administrator gets an F in free speech and public discourse … should be fired.

I’m pulling for the Donald too! I love that someone is finally talking that Obama can’t silence, and the people are listening. I hope Donald has his own security though because I want him to continue talking and informing the people. An informed public is something the enemy dreads.

In addition to my last comment. There is, online a partition, started in the UK, requesting that Donald Trump be banned from visiting Britain. Cameron has stated that any partiion that gains more than 1000 votes will be debated in Parliament.

This is a good example of the UNs plan to confuse people, to make populations unsure of themselves. Surrender to Islam. If Trump were to win in the election, Britain will have put it’s self into a stupid and embarrassing situation. I hope he wins. This from an ex Limey.

Any education administrator who suppresses ideas to favor feelings should be the dismissed.

Chris. Unfortunately, those that left will continue to be ignorant on this and all other topics, and one day get to vote. A vote that counts as much as the smart ppl that stayed.

This is outrageous!! Ever watch “til debt do us part”? That a lot of ppl that suck with money is a simple statement of fact. Likely these students took it the wrong way, assuming he was dumping on the legitimately poor. That they’re all being raised to believe all White Males are “privileged” would likely play into this wrongful assumption as well. See the difference how I (we) think and the Lefty’s think? Lefty’s “assume”. (I was married to one once – they ALL do it). And when you add misinformation to assumption – this is what you get!

Sad that today’s education in Western culture is all about not hurting people’s feelings rather than learning the truth.

America needs Donald Trump, the whole Western world needs a Donald Trump. Holland has Geert Wilders, France has Le Pen. When is the rest of the world going to wake up?

Time Magazine has just voted the Leader of Germany, who’s name slips my mind right now, Woman of the Month. This female has messed up Germany so badly, it is now a Muslim Country. She came on to the European scene with all the other Marxist, when the Berlin Wall came down. They are all running the UN now..

I’m pretty encouraged that half of the audience stayed.
I hope they were able to learn more with the negative influence out of the room.
Let the people who want to lose, lose.
What are you prepared to do today? We have all been duped to some degree!

Keep talking Ben! You know when they try to silence you, that you are on the right track.

Yes, if the masses ever figure out how to manage their money successfully, big government is out of business.

Imagine a world of no welfare? Imagine a world where taxes rocket, but tax revenue tanks. Big government would panic.

Socialists like people that agree with them – they call them smart. And if you disagree with a socialist, they now use “micro aggression” to kill the message and defame the counter arguing person.

yup…half the class went to their ‘safe space’ to burn one.
