If you talk really fast blurting out practically anything that pops into your head, and there's a world full of really slow people that are bound to be wewed at anything they're too slow to keep up with, thus giving you the benefit without understanding a thing you're even saying, then you'd love being Ben Shapiro. Some of the things Ben has said so far (and fast enough to impress the American voting base)

- Being unable to afford a nice piece of furniture or terminal healthcare are apples and apples.
- Banning automatic weapons won't do anything!!! You're an idiot for thinking so! (your a ruddy idiot Pierce Morgan harr harr harr!!! I'm Ben Shapiro!!)
- Port Arthur didn't happen (see above)
- How dna is evidence and how it isn't

I don't think I'll ever get the utterly cringeworthy podcast ft. Shapiro, Canadian Kermit and whoever the host was. 2 torturous hours of each patting themselves on the back for their huge impact in saving the world from cultural Marxism.

Doesn't help that Shapiro and Peterson have such laughable voices. Never again.

Sweet.
A smear campaign, you bewdy :thumbsu:
Dont forget the golden rule checklist....
1. Compare with and lampoon with figures of your choice.
2. Preach to the like minded to feel secure in your view.
3. Create a basis for attack with unfounded accusation that can be later denied.
4. Mask the insecurity that generated the smear with verbal abuse.
5. Pretend to have qualification to create a sense of expertise.

Unfortunately you started the smear making it a bit too obvious you feel threatened. Its possible to rescue the smear, but it wont be easy.

I think we can all agree that anyone arguing our species is male or female should be hauled before the gender police as a loon.

Ben Shapiro quotes dna evidence as proof of only two genders whilst at the same time claiming sky fairies created humans without any evidence of evolution.
You know being wrong about the second bit doesnt make you wrong about the first bit.

Are you a believer in only some science? Does some science annoy you?

Here is a checklist of science. At what point do you step off the science bus:
There is no scientific proof of God
Climate change is influenced by man
GM foods are beneficial to the world
Coal seam gas is a safe and effective source of energy
There are 2 genders

Yeah but people think this guy is literally never wrong! Same with Milo. I think people just hear his tone of voice and don't know what he's saying.

smart well educated thinker. don't agree with a lot of what he says but definitely makes valid points about other things.
Kind've/yes, he just talks really loud/over at people like someone with aspergers. If you actually listen to what he says most of it is ill thought out.

Watch his automatic weapons argument with Piers Morgan. He puts the focus on the guy and uses nonsensical personal attacks and when you actually listen to what he says, he argues automatic weapons aren't any more dangerous than hand pistols!

His Gender stuff is good and it wow's a lot of people with weak minds. Because they'd love to do the same thing to sjw's but can't.

He has actually said a number of times that to believe in god you have to make a leap of faith, he also said to be an atheist you have to make a leap of faith.

I find it funny that the many on the left talk about how silly religion is yet they believe in the most dangerous and moronic religion in the world, climate change.

Ben Shapiro is brilliant. He understands the minds if the left very well.

He often talks about the fundamental principal of the left in equality of outcomes and the belief that if someone has more than someone else it must be due to the person with more oppressing the person who has less. So true .

Nah. They are modern day Howard Sterns.

People who claim to hate them spend more time listening to them than people who like them.

Stern haters listened for twice as long too. Hoping to be outraged.

The problem there is he's trying to compare them. Religion is flat out nonsense! There's no leaps of faith required with science it's only what we know, not what we think. None of the main religions correlate with the evidence we have before us and are endlessly contradicted.

There's nothing false about climate change. We release gigatonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere every year. It's physics!

Yea... the "religion of climate change" is the most dangerous religion in the world; it causes people to think about their impact on the environment and change their behaviors to be more sustainable. So much worse than fundamental Muslims who murder people through terrorist acts or the Crusades, where Christianity was used to rape, pillage and plunder... Yea climate change is fuarking mental compared to other religions :think:

On topic, I am pretty sure Ben Shapiro has Aspergers.

Can't be any more cringeworthy than the way people of your ilk approach a debate.

With regards to the origin of the universe there is much we don't know. Even Einstein himself seemed to believe in some type of non personal god as he felt the universe consisted of far too much order.

Sorry but the earth goes through natural cycles, that is why we had an ice age. Notice we came out of the ice age long before we started realising CO2 ? the earth has also gone through periods of natural disaster all the time with more harm being caused in the cold than the warm, so why the stupid panic ?

How many poor people do you think die because they can not afford to turn the heating on when its cold ? we are talking especially about the elderly and the disabled .

This is the type of left wing nonsense Ben exposes brilliantly, they claim to care about the poor but they have this ideology that is pushing their costs of living up through the roof.

Let's increase the pension. Increase employer contributions to super. Install better heating in public housing. Give energy concessions to over 60s.

You'd support this then?

Well we are doing stuff and it’s going to cause issues. Some apocalyptic scenarios probably won’t happen, but business as usual will definitely have an impact for the worse.

Comparing religion with climate change is like comparing gravitational force with UFOs

Another good point Ben often makes is that when the left talk about trickle down economics they are just describing how economies work.

What do you think your ideas will do ? do you think that money to pay for all this will come from thin air ? that the costs will just be taken on the chin by those at the top end of town ? the cost of this will just be passed down to the poor increasing their costs of living even further.

Ben makes the point all the time to look after the poor we need small government.
