I know how touchy everyone in this forum is so I'll keep this brief. Ben Shapiro has a lot of great points and his conversation proves it. He's not right about everything, he is a decent person that admits, wholeheartedly, his view. I respect him.

So here we see illustrated the real reason I think the students had a problem with Ben: they can't beat him. They can label him a sexist or white supremacist, but in an actual debate they can't actually beat him lol. Read the article, and see how once the student is made to essentially appear foolish he immediately tries to pivot. Suddenly it's not about why a fetus is a human life...it's about the "burden" some unwanted children can put on someone.
“OK, if you are in a coma from which you may awake, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked again.
“Well, then, uhh, no,” the student answered. “That’s still potential sentience.”
“I agree it is potential sentience. You know what else is potential sentience? Being a fetus,” Shapiro declared to loud cheers."
Lol, essentially all one needs to do is encourage these people to talk(and I mean talk, not shout "racist!") and once they do they will just end up defeating themselves. Now why I see why on other instances when conservative speakers asked some hecklers to actually debate them they just kinda...screamed slogans in response.
I have never seen Ben act like he considers himself "edgy". He seems mostly perplexed and amused by the fact snowflakes get so up in arms over him. And hell, if these folk get triggered by Ben there is a problem. Just like if they get triggered by Christina Hoff Summers there is a problem. These people are not Milo's nor are they even Steven Crowders. Yet kids still need play doh and safe spaces to deal with these kinds of speakers.

I mean, the fact that Berkeley is so filled with violent regressives $600,000 needed to be spent on security, and that the university offered special counseling sessions for any hurt by his speech.
Like that's pathetic. The university is permissive of and is inculcating some very regressive attitudes and behaviors. In elementary, middle, and high school, the only time special counseling was offered for a specific situation is when students at my high school died in a ****ing car crash, and yet you have a university offering counseling for anyone emotionally hurt by a speech they didn't attend? This is truly pathetic.
I'm actually pretty pleased with Berkeley for actually allowing the cops to do their jobs and taking the potential threat of these violent ideologues seriously, but that doesn't change the fact that it's apparent UC Berkeley is inculcating regressive attitudes.
