In today’s outrage, Ben Shapiro managed to light the internet on fire because he guest-edited the Politico newsletter.

Did any of them actually read the newsletter or did they lose their minds because his name sets off a trigger?

Shapiro can be inflammatory, but that did not appear in the newsletter. He pointed out that conservatives have to live up to a different standard and leftists cannot be hypocrites for some reason. He dived deep into the cancellation of conservatives and platforms since the Capitol Hill riots.

Shapiro also wrote that his own sources said the leftist media and politicians have them worried and therefore opposed impeachment:

Many in the media seem bewildered that House Republicans didn’t unanimously join Democrats in supporting impeachment (looking at you, Playbook readers in the media) — after all, Republicans were in the building when rioters broke through, seeking to do them grievous physical harm. My Republican sources tell me that opposition to impeachment doesn’t spring from generalized sanguinity over Trump’s behavior: I’ve been receiving calls and texts for more than a week from elected Republicans heartsick over what they saw in the Capitol.

Opposition to impeachment comes from a deep and abiding conservative belief that members of the opposing political tribe want their destruction, not simply to punish Trump for his behavior. Republicans believe that Democrats and the overwhelmingly liberal media see impeachment as an attempt to cudgel them collectively by lumping them in with the Capitol rioters thanks to their support for Trump.

Shapiro is absolutely correct. You will see in the next section that this hesitation expands to non-politicians.

Something tells me Shapiro agreed to edit the newsletter because it would cause an outrage. Thus it would prove his point about canceling and silencing conservatives or even brushing off an outlet that dares gives a conservative a voice.

Outrage in Politico Newsroom

I mean, it’s not like Politico hired him.

Editor-in-chief Matt Kaminski said Politico would not apologize…at least for now. I bet he caves.

OH LOOK. Another one of Shapiro’s points was proven during this conference call at Politico. A few sane people had no problem with the decision, but could not voice their opinions because the self-righteous colleagues would belittle them.

I do not know if those who had no problem with Shapiro are conservatives, libertarians, or leftists. Maybe they just agree with free speech and offering all perspectives.

But my goodness. Ben Shapiro, you guys. The staff has never complained about Chris Hayes and Yamiche Alcindor editing Playbook.

Because we all know Hayes and Alcindor have never even hiccuped a lie or stretched the truth.

Outrage on Twitter

Okay, so let’s look at the derangement on Twitter. I had no idea Shapiro is so dangerous and that he has *litrally* inspired a lot of terror attacks around the globe.
