Ben Shapiro Testifies at Congressional Hearing, Destroys Leftist Congresswoman

On Thursday, the hot topic of discussion was free speech on college campuses during a Congressional hearing. Conservative and intellectual-warrior Ben Shapiro made an appearance alongside other commentators (including Adam Carolla) and spoke about how "free speech is under assault."

Mediaite tells us more:

Shapiro warns about the dangers and unintended consequences of the suppression of free speech.

“It turns students into snowflakes, craven and pathetic looking for an excuse to be offended so they can earn points in the intersectionality olympics,” he says. And then use those points as a club for which to beat opponents.”

“Shielding college students from opposing viewpoints makes them simultaneously weaker and more dangerous. We must fight that process at every step.”

Shapiro concluded his powerful speech by saying, “All of our views should be judged on their merits, not by the color or sex or sexual orientation of the speaker and those views should never be banned on the grounds that they offend someone.”

Shapiro is no stranger to the hypocrisy of the left, having nearly been prevented from speaking at UC Berkeley just a week ago. At one point, he is questioned by Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett, who tries to turn free speech rights into a racial issue:

After noting that Congresswoman Plaskett's position essentially encourages accusations of racism without actual evidence, Shapiro demolishes her by pointing out that he'd be willing to stand and fight against any group or individual perpetrating these views. The conversation ended with Shapiro noting that he himself was the number-one target of Anti-Semetic harrassment from the Alt-Right.
