He tells it like it is 😉
@philokalia saidYou really need to invest into some sarcasm detection technology.
He's really one of the strongest voices for classical liberalism out there.
But, honestly, classical liberalism doesn't have much of a future as the GOP goes populist and the Democrats are going more hard left.
He was born too late.
@philokalia saidI don't know who this poster is.
I guess I should've paid attention to the emoji?
But it's not absurd to like Ben Shapiro at all and I don't know who this poster is.

I've always thought that it spoke of intellectual to integrity to be able to call someone you don't agree with intelligent.
Have you ever listened to Ben Shapiro? I don't fully agree with him on a lot of things, but the guy puts forward the best arguments of his position while relying on empirical data and careful reasoning.
There's flaws in his arguments, of course, and you may disagree with him but I fail to see how you'd call him a dummy.
@philokalia said"I think he is sincere and passionate about his beliefs"
Fair enough, Zahl. It was Kazet who said that he is a moron, and who I was primarily addressing.
If you want to say that he is dishonest or some such... Sure, IDK.
I think he is sincere and passionate about his beliefs, and I think that the only thing that he might actually be concealing at all is that he publicly steers his opinions on LGBTQ to a more limit ...[text shortened]... at is the unsullied image of God... And that never vanishes. So, we should not judge people harshly.
"we should be charitable to people"Zahlooney, it can only be considered charity when folk have a choice. Benevolence is a virtue and you'll never be able to claim it when you advocate the force of the state.
we should be. That's why liberals consider healthcare and education to be a right. A living wage. He is on the record to say that Social Security should be cut and that it is fair and good that the military budget was increased.
@chessistoohard saidyou can be sarcastic about him running for presidency or you could be serious and stupid. He isn't dumb. You supporting him and thinking he believes 100% what he says and not figuring out when he lies and distorts the facts means you are.
I was being serious.
Ben Shapiro is always the smartest guy in the room. He out debates everyone.
I thought he was a far right almost white supremaciat Jew?
I wasn't being sarcastic about his presidency in 2024.
Obviously the Democrats will win in 2020 but after the recession and stock market crash people will want to go back to the Republic ...[text shortened]... nomy etc etc.
Just watch Ben Shapiro's videos. He's great. 😉 (Winking emoji does not imply sarcasm)
