UConn Restricts Ben Shapiro Appearance

“We understand that even the thought of an individual coming to campus with the views that Mr. Shapiro expresses can be concerning and even hurtful and that’s why we wanted to make you aware as soon as we were informed,” Murchison wrote. “In the meantime, please utilize the many campus resources available to you should you want to talk through your feelings about this issue, including my office, the Cultural Centers, the Dean of Students Office, and CMHS, if necessary.”

The University of Connecticut, which I believe calls itself. "the Huskies", is all in a tither because conservative speaker Ben Shapiro is coming to give a talk sponsored by the Young America Foundation, a conservative student group. Attendance is restricted, and offended students are being afforded some sort of counseling lest they be unable to cope with Mr Shapiro's words. Campus Reform has the report.

Let's be clear. Ben Shapiro is not a racist. He is not a hater of anybody. He is merely a conservative speaker who is quite articulate in his reasoning. Maybe that's why the left fears him so much.

He's not particularly articulate and his logic is defective. But we can agree that anyone who doesn't like his message should be able to take him down intellectually, while remaining entirely courteous, if not to Shapiro, then to the rest of the audience. Only an incompetent cretin who forgot how to marshal facts and make a case would fear or even loath his presence.

I think you are thinking of some other Ben Shapiro. I challenge you to go and listen to one of his lectures and challenge him in the q and a.
