Reporter and commentator Ben Shapiro openly spanked Black Lives Matter supporters on video to the point where they were left without an ability to even utter a word against his argument. Watch as their smiles and laughter disappear as they are outed for the ignorant, insurrection breeding racists that they are.
Following the Baltimore riots, Shapiro appeared along several Black Lives Matter supporters, including Dr. Sheley Secrest, development director of the Seattle Chapter of the NAACP, and Seattle Stranger columnist Charles Mudede, and utterly ripped the mask off the criminal element that is behind the ideology.
First he addressed the rioting of those in the Black community, who destroyed property and threatened lives.
“I’m offended by the uprising of black people breaking into other black people’s stores and looting them,” said Shapiro. “This is a lack of values. People who are destroying private property, destroying cop cars in an uprising against what exactly? Against the black police chief? Against a mostly minority police force? Against the black mayor? Against the black president? Against the black attorney general? Against a city council that nine of 15 are black and all elected Democrats? What is the uprising against? What is it seeking to achieve?”
The obvious answer is that these people were stirred up and wanted to blame racism for their own animal-like behavior. Shapiro is right to question, what did any of the rioting achieve? Nothing, except to burden the tax payers and insurance payers with a heavy burden of replacing what these people destroyed.
When Shapiro was questioned about the ridiculous notion of “income inequality,” he said, “It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with culture.”
Shapiro gave the panelists a moment to laugh, and then he started pushing the facts, some these people do not know how to respond to.
“You explain to me why black kids aren’t graduating high school?” Shapiro thundered. “Explain that one to me. Explain to me why black kids are shooting each other in rates significantly higher than whites are shooting each other? Explain to me why 13 percent of the population is responsible for 50 percent of the murder?[…]Is America more racist now than it was in 1960? And if so, explain to me how that happened?”
However, Mudede decided that it was time to respond, and so he claimed “there has to be racism. I’m talking about human beings. Human beings are most likely going to have racial prejudices.”
“I wanna ask you a question, Charles,” asked Shapiro. “So your default is that when there is no evidence, racism is the deciding factor?”
Of course, Mudede was caught with that question and responded negatively. However, as if Shapiro had not exposed him for what he is, he went further to pull the mask off the ignorant claims of Mudede.
“The idea that you can craft a narrative based on no racism because it just must be somewhere out there in the ether, that doesn’t solve problems for anybody,” said Shapiro. “It creates more problems for people, because now they grow up in a milieu and an environment where they are told that every obstacle they face is from some shadowy, nameless, faceless group who is out to get them simply because of the color of their skin.”
That’s exactly right. This has nothing to do with the color of people’s skin. There are many God fearing Black Americans who are appalled at the kind of criminal activity that the rioters in Baltimore engaged in with the blessing of the mayor, Obama and others. The issue is lawfulness and character. Those who rioted in Baltimore and those who encouraged it are lawless and criminal, period. Well done, Mr. Shapiro!
