Ben Shapiro – 3 pm Sat

Ben Shapiro is editor-in-chief of DailyWire.com, and host of “The Ben Shapiro
Show,” the top conservative podcast in the nation, and a leading conservative
speaker on college campuses, consistently defending free speech and open
debate. Shapiro is the author of seven books, including The New York Times
bestseller, “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences
America” (2012). Shapiro is also a nationally syndicated columnist since age 17,
and a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School.

Rush Limbaugh says Shapiro isn’t just “content to have people be dazzled by his
brilliance; he actually goes out and confronts and tries to persuade, mobilize,
motivate people.” Glenn Beck calls Shapiro a “warrior for conservatism, against
those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate. I’ve never known him
to back down from a fight.” Sarah Palin says that Americans should “consider
Ben’s advice about how we must stand up and push back twice as hard against this bullying”.

Sean Hannity says to join Ben Shapiro and “fight back!” against liberal bullying.
Michelle Malkin says Shapiro is “infused with the indomitable spirit of his friend
and mentor Andrew Breitbart”. Even the liberal Washington Post, in the
aftermath of Shapiro’s devastating destruction of Piers Morgan on national
television, conceded that Shapiro is a “foe of extraordinary polemical agility.”

We Choose Not To Do These Things Because They Are Hard

It’s real easy to be “outraged” about politics today.  It’s easy to post a scathing tweet or a Facebook update.  It’s easy to retweet a link to a Salon.com article or to troll the social media account of the NRA or Fox News Channel or a lawmaker.  It’s easy to grab an Uber with your friends and…

Controlling the End

Just a warning, this My Two Cents is probably going to result in the greatest outrage of any I’ve ever done because it takes a non-emotional look at a very emotional issue: suicide.   We are being told that we need to have another “national conversation”–this time about suicide.  A couple of celebrity deaths last week…
