The Great Quotes of Ben Shapiro

PJMedia ran a kinda cringy piece, Ben Shapiro's Most BRUTAL Quotes.

Are these really Shapiro's best quotes?

I don't know. But let's read The Brilliance, The Scintillations, The Dazzlements, The Piercing Luminescences, together.

19. "Life isn't about feeling comfortable. Life is about bettering yourself."

Deepak Thoughts.

Read these two brilliant quotes together:

20. "There are times when people are not so cordial and not so nice. My obligation, in debate, is to destroy them in front of as many people as possible."


18. "Freedom of speech and thought matters, especially when it is speech and thought with which we disagree. The moment the majority decides to destroy people for engaging in thought it dislikes, thought crime becomes a reality."

Wait, didn't he just say his entire mission was to "destroy" wrongthinkers in front of as many people as possible, that is, to achieve a majority of people who applaud their being destroyed?

Ah well, these are Shaprio's best quotes, not his most consistent quotes.

This is the same guy who boasts about #OwningTheLibs 360 days a year, until his NeverTrump softboi friends start whining that you should not own the libs, and then he writes three or four toss-off pieces about how #OwningTheLibs is like the worst motive for anything.

Pretty much, Ben Shapiro believes, each day, whatever it is necessary for him to believe to sanctimoniously preach his supreme virtue to other conservatives, and once in a while liberals, if he's being paid to.

17. "This is what makes leftists leftists: an unearned sense of moral superiority over you."

Really! I was just saying something about that.

Isn't Big-Tits Ben a Founding Member of Better Than The Other Conservatives Conservatism?

I kind of got the sense that I was the "bad guy" because I enjoy "Owning the Libs," which you also enjoy, except when you decide that no one else but you Owns the Libs quite right and we're all bad people for Trying to Be Like Ben.

...


15. "Conservatives have allowed liberals to win the culture war because we’re generally civil people. When the left says we're uncivil, we tend to shy away from the fight rather than, as Andrew [Breitbart] put it, walking toward the fire."

Says the guy who joins every left-wing scalp-hunt against a conservative he sees.

Eat me last, he begged of the crocodile.

14. "Turning a blind eye to evil, however, doesn't make it disappear. It allows it to grow. And those who allow evil to grow in order to protect their own convenience will be held accountable for the end results of the evil they facilitate."

Let me just point out: That's a great quote. It's so pithy and memorable. Really rolls off the tongue. Really sticks in your mind, too.

It honestly sounds like it was fabricated by a Fake Quote Generator Program.


12. "The left is expert at framing debates. They have buzzwords they use to direct the debate toward unwinnable positions for you. They are tolerant, diverse, fighters for social justice; if you oppose them, by contrast, you are intolerant, xenophobic, and in favor of injustice. Now, all these terms are -- to be polite --- a crock, if considered as absolute moral values. The left is wildly intolerant of religious people and conservatives; that's why they're interested in forcing Christian bakers to cater to same-sex weddings. They are anti-intellectual diversity, particularly in areas of American life in which they predominate; that’s why they stifle conservatism on campus and in the media."

This is suuuper-original stuff. I'm so glad we have Ben Shapiro to think these recherche thoughts for us.

11. "When facts become secondary to emotion, truth dies. And a society that doesn't value truth cannot survive."

Well, you know Ben, the truth is, that Valerie Jarret does look like Kim Hunter in Planet of the Apes. And you supported Roseanne Barr being fired for it.

Why do you want society to die, Ben?

10. "Too many Americans believe that freedom is actually a burden."

Ben believes that freedom of speech is a burden that many of you should not be made to carry, or permitted to carry.

9. "Leisure time is only leisure time when it is earned; otherwise, leisure time devolves into soul-killing lassitude. There's a reason so many new retirees, freed from the treadmill of work, promptly keel over on the golf course: Work fulfills us. It keeps us going."

A guy who sits on Twitter as much as he does really cannot talk about "soul-killing lassitude."

8. "If you sacrifice your principles for victory, you don't end up with victory and you don't end up with principles."

Agitating for the election of Hillary Clinton really helped Ben the Savant hold on to his principles. He just had to give up a few minor principles, such as honesty, and telling people who he really supported in an election.

Oh well -- it's not like that's his job or anything.

Remember, it's not biiiiiinaaaaryyyy.

7. "People say capitalism is selfishness. No, socialism is selfishness. The idea that I have to pay for you to paint water colors in your basement is a selfish philosophy."

This is the sort of retarded shit that liberals say to parody Rush Limbaugh, though Rush Limbaugh doesn't descend to this level of stupid cliched baiting.

But Ben the Savant does.

6. "Distrust of government isn't baseless cynicism. It's realism."

5. "Limited government cannot exist in a country free of virtue."

4. "You can't hold political conversations with people that are calling you evil."

3. "Tragedy does not confer expertise."

2. "Capitalism is consensual sex, socialism is rape."

1. "Facts don't care about your feelings."

It's amazing that anyone thinks that these are even quotes at all, let alone great quotes.

All I can say is that it's good thing Ben the Savant has billionaire money backing him and buying him audience, because otherwise, we'd have no one to say very obvious things in a styleless and obvious way.

We'd have no one to point out evil. We'd even turn a blind eye to it.

And turning a blind eye to evil, as a robot genius once said, doesn't make it disappear. It allows it to grow. And those who allow evil to grow in order to protect their own convenience will be held accountable for the end results of the evil they facilitate.

It's like a catchy song. I just can't get that Tone Poem out of my head.

By the way: The fact is that Ben Shapiro, by tearing down Trump, was effectively, and in reality, pushing the election of Hillary Clinton.

What's that thing that the neocons used to be fond of saying? Those who are against the war effort are objectively pro-terrorist.

Aiding the anti-terrorist effort has the same effect as undermining the terrorist network.

Undermining the anti-terrorist effort has the same effect as directly aiding the terrorist network.

There is no difference, mathematically, between subtracting 100 votes from Trump and adding 100 votes for Hillary Clinton.

As the only thing that matters is the comparative -- the difference between the two vote tallies -- these are mathematically IDENTICAL operations.

In affirmative action college admissions, it is an identical mathematical operation to give some favored categories a "Plus Factor" as to give disfavored categories a minus to their total admissions score.

They don't like saying "We take away points from some applicants," feeling that a "Plus Factor" sounds more positive, but no one who is not a retard has any doubt that these are the same mathematical operation, in every way that counts (the comparative).

So I don't see how Ben can claim that his efforts to dissuade as many people as possible from voting for Trump is any different from trying to persuade as many people as possible to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Depressing the Republican vote is exactly the same as energizing the Democrat vote.

And in fact people like Not-Binary Ben did both, the latter by convincing on the fence Democrats that Trump was a Singular Evil who must be stopped at all costs, even if that meant electing a known felon like Hillary Clinton.

After all -- even the Genius Ben Shapiro said so.

And he's spoken at colleges!!!!

But Ben Shaprio will say this FACT does not matter because he FEEEEEEELS the election was Not Biiiiiinaaaaryyyy, even though the FACT is, it was of course very binary.

Even more binary than the gender thing that consumes so much of his mindspace. I mean, there really is a real, though very rare, medical condition of hermaphroditism, or having partially formed genitals, or having both genitals, etc.

In the 2016 election, it really was COMPLETELY, INARGUABLY, BIBLICALLY BINARY.

So I don't know -- does Not-Binary Ben even believe in this deeply stupid quote he's obviously so proud of?

Is it the case that while facts don't care about your feelings, they do care about Ben's, and will contort and pervert themselves so as to make Ben's facially false claims truth-esque?
