  •  What a raving asshole... (4.00)
    Brought up in the home of two Reagan Republicans, where intelligent conversation about politics and philosophy was encouraged, Shapiro quickly developed into a reasoned political thinker and a powerful writer.

    Talk about your irony.  Reagan Republicanism was anyhting but about intelligent conversation.  It was image politics.  Grandpa Ronnie, Morning in America... while his brain was decaying (poor man) and America was, too.  But damn, the imaging was superb.

    If that's the input into Shapiro's views and writing, then... no wonder he's such an idiot.

    Sedition is saying "shutup, shutup!"  It's legalizing Limbaughism and denying free speech.  It's saying that dissent is illegal, that talking about the errors and wrongness and crimes of an administtration is justification for silencing people and imprisoning them.

    This imbecile is kin to Coulter, a quisling "for" democracy, a man who would open up Manzanar again for the enemies of the state.

    Objectively?  Ben Shapiro is a fascist.  An Orthodox Jewish fascist.  Dear god, you'd think that any Jew would know better than to call for silencing dissent.  Boot-licker.

      Yes, how ironic, indeed, that Shapiro appears to admire the same approach to dissent as did the Nazis.  Or the communists in the USSR and Red China.  How quick neo-conservatives are to become the enemies they once professed to hate.

      "Powerful writer"?  This part of his bio (at least) sounds like self-aggrandizing mental masturbation rather than a serious self-appraisal.
