Graduating from the University of Virginia with a degree in English and media studies, Rob Shimshock is not your typical polisci nerd. He sees words as the most deadly culture war weapons. Rather than examining stories solely through the prisms of policy and pragmatism, Shimshock hones in on logical fallacies, appeals to emotion, and free speech vs. incitement to violence.
Shimshock covers college craziness for Rebel's Campus Unmasked project, as well as at The Daily Caller News Foundation. Prior to those two outlets, he contributed to Breitbart News and Campus Reform. He boasts a near-mint collection of plastic reptiles, is simply smitten with Shakespeare, plays Christmas songs on the piano year-round, and is a chad nationalist jock who excels at alpha male contact sports like ping pong.
