‘We should make crimes against the law’: Ben Shapiro mocked for moaning no NYC Democrats pledged to ban crime

During a primary debate, the Democratic candidates for New York City Mayor were asked what they would ban if they were elected. Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro was roundly mocked on Twitter after pointing out that none of the candidates said they would ban crime, something which is already illegal. “Notably, nobody said crime,” Mr Shapiro tweeted on Friday and included a rundown of the candidates’ responses, which ranged from sugary drinks, school lunch junk food, neighbourhoods without parks, and healthcare deserts. Historian Kevin Kruse tweeted: “I was pretty positive this ridiculous tweet had to be a photoshopped spoof,...

Ben Shapiro Doesn’t Seem To Realise That Crime Is Already Banned

Social media users were quick to mock Ben Shapiro after he criticised New York City mayoral candidates for not vowing to ban ‘crime’. The Cambridge Dictionary defines crime as ‘illegal activities’ and ‘illegal acts’, though I think it’s safe to say most people don’t need the dictionary to tell them that ‘crime’ refers to things that are already against the law.

Ben Shapiro calls for crime to be banned

Punditry about pundits is about the worst thing on the internet, but I didn't believe this tweet from Ben Shapiro was real and feel that it's worth a post. It reminds me of his famous "just sell homes inundated by rising sea levels" remark ("Who to, Ben, Aquaman?") in that it suggests a personal reality that only fleetingly matches the consensus.

Boy Genius Ben Shapiro Thinks We Should Ban Crime

Ben Shapiro has long presented himself as an intellectual conservative. It’s a brand he’s been shockingly successful in getting to stick, despite constantly undermining himself by publicly saying the most asinine, ignorant things imaginable. Ben Shapiro makes arguments that most of us would still side-eye if they were coming from actual children, and yet here is an ostensibly full-grown adult man saying things that are so easy to knock over, it’s hard to imagine anything at all was going on inside his head before he said or wrote them, other than maybe the whistling of a breeze passing between the ears.

Ben Shapiro: How Blue City Governance Is Destroying Blue Cities

This week, a video from a San Francisco Walgreens went viral on Twitter. The video depicted a man standing next to his bicycle, loading up a garbage bag with products. The man then rides his bicycle down the aisle, past a security guard, who limply throws out a hand to try to grab the bag; the shoplifter simply brushes past him, then rides out the door.

Marjorie Taylor Greene has even lost Ben Shapiro - after comparing vaccination proof to Nazi treatment of Jews

If you’re on the right and you’ve lost Ben Shapiro, things aren’t looking great.But that’s what’s now happened to QAnon-adjacent representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, after a frankly shocking post she made on Twitter.She tweeted about a grocery store that wanted to create badge notifications of employee vaccination status.And yes, somehow she leapt to making a Holocaust comparison: “Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi’s forced Jewish people to wear a gold star.Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi’s forced Jewish people to wear a gold star.

Peter Schiff and Ben Shapiro: The Government Is Wrecking the Economy

But during an appearance on the Ben Shapiro Show, Peter Schiff said this isn’t a real recovery, and he explains how all of the government “help” is actually wrecking the economy, distorting the job market and destroying the dollar.

Ben Shapiro and Other Republicans Rip Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ‘Demented Nonsense’ Holocaust Comparison

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is facing pushback from her own party as she continues to insist various COVID-19 safety measures are comparable to the Holocaust. On Tuesday, Greene continued her days-long comparison and tweeted a link to a local news article about grocery store employees not having to wear masks at work if they’re fully vaccinated against the virus that has shaken the world for over a year, ravaging the U.S. economy and killing at least 590,000 Americans.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Is Being Called Out By Ben Shapiro (And Other Right-Wingers) After Doubling Down On Comparing COVID Restrictions To The Holocaust

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s managing to upset the far-right (and that’s saying something, since that’s her voting base) with incoherent rants on COVID restrictions, which she’s repeatedly compared to the Holocaust. She first embarrassed the Republican party with a temper tantrum over masks on the House floor, which left her with a lighter paycheck as she tore up Nancy Pelosi’s directive on the subject. In doing so, she accused the House Majority Leader of fostering a Holocaust-style environment while suggesting that she’s being made to wear the Star of David. In response, multiple GOP lawmakers (including Rep. Liz Cheney, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, and Rep. Peter Meijer) accused MTG of “evil lunacy,” and then she went even further while repeating her Holocaust remarks. Days later, she’s drawing criticism from the far-right’s Ben Shapiro.
