Ben Shapiro grabs a stepstool, tries to claim the mantle of William F. Buckley by purging ‘naughty’ conservatives
By News Editors // Apr 30, 2024

Little Ben Shapiro seems to think he’s the modern-day William F. Buckley of the conservative movement, on a crusade to purge any free-thinking conservatives who dare stray from the approved neocon script. Lately, he’s been rather busy. He recently went after Tucker Carlson for his alternate views on war and evolution, suggesting different theories that didn’t “jive” with Ben. And just a few weeks ago, he went after Candace Owens because she questioned the turmoil between Israel and Palestine in a way that Little Ben didn’t appreciate. It looks like Ben Shapiro’s vision for the conservative movement doesn’t have much room for diverse thoughts and ideas. And now, he’s zeroing in on Tucker Carlson, all because Tucker isn’t afraid to challenge the established norms, and he used the massive platform of the Joe Rogan podcast to do it.

The bottom line is that Little Ben’s feelings can’t be hurt, and his sensitivities must never be challenged. If they are, all bets are off, and he’ll try to reinvent the very movement that has soundly rejected him and his outdated, failed establishment ideas time and time again. However, don’t expect Shapiro to come clean about his real agenda: exterminating alternative ideas from a movement where he barely holds relevance, aside from his role as controlled opposition.

Ben and his allies on the left will try to spin what he’s doing as ridding the right of “conspiracy kooks.” Don’t buy it. It’s a move straight from the left’s playbook.


Ben Shapiro is on the warpath.

Last month, conspiratorial right-wing commentator Candace Owens was fired by The Daily Wire, the conservative media company Shapiro founded nearly a decade ago. Her ouster followed a months-long cold war with Shapiro largely fueled by her descent into overt, proud anti-Semitism.

“I think her behavior during this has been disgraceful,” said Shapiro last fall, referring to Owens’ analysis of the war in Gaza and propagation of misinformation about Israel. It took awhile after Shapiro sounded the alarm, but Owens was eventually dismissed for her indulgence of bigotry.

And yet, his enemy’s defeat has not compelled Shapiro to lay down his sword. While Owens has been expelled out from under his own roof, Shapiro has turned his sights on other cranks on the Right and grown increasingly strident in his denunciations of them.

Tucker Carlson, in particular, has become a regular target of Shapiro’s. Hostilities between the two conservative media giants broke out even before the Shapiro-Owens spat, when Shapiro knocked Carlson for “downplaying” the October 7 terrorist attack on Israel just days after it happened. Shortly after that, Shapiro put the former Fox News host on blast again over another conversation he had with anti-Israel commentator Douglas Macgregor.

Let’s face it, there’s no love lost between Tucker and the right-wing neocons. As a matter of fact, recently Tucker had this to say about warmongers Nikki Haley and Ben Shapiro:

Shapiro responded to Tucker’s bold statement by claiming he was “lying” about his “warmonger” positions.

Ben Shapiro: 

Tucker is simply lying about my positions. I’ve been calling for a negotiated end to the Ukraine war freezing the lines of conflict since early on in the war. I have never called for American boots on the ground in Ukraine. Ever. I have never called for American boots to defend Israel. Ever. I’ve invited Tucker to sit down multiple times over the past few weeks to clear the air and discuss our differences. He’s said he’s willing, but his team has told us that he’s busy for months because of all of his foreign travel. That offer remains open.

Really, Ben? Are you sure about that?

One of the biggest problems for Ben and his rebuke is that he has a well-documented reputation as a globalist who champions “foreign interests.” On the other hand, Tucker is well-known as a credible truth-teller.

Here’s a recent example of Tucker speaking out against the US dropping nuclear bombs on civilians during World War II.

Ben Shapiro, who seems to never meet a war he doesn’t like, took issue with Tucker Carlson’s views on the US bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The truth is, Ben Shapiro is desperate to match Tucker Carlson’s political and social relevance, his overall popularity, and his free-thinking reputation. However, Ben’s unquenchable thirst for war, insufferable elitism, and deep-seated love for the establishment and globalism will always stand in his way.

This is America, where people should have the right to either believe the bomb was necessary and ended the war with Japan or that dropping the bomb was morally reprehensible and totally unnecessary since it killed so many innocent women and children. We definitely don’t need Ben Shapiro eliminating free speech and the flow of new ideas within our movement. But that’s exactly what he’s doing. It’s likely very personal for Little Ben, too. After all, Tucker has always been a thorn in his side. Shapiro’s feathers were clearly ruffled, and he was ready to put his little dukes up after realizing he was the “free speech fraud” Tucker was talking about in a recent Joe Rogan podcast clip.

James Jinnette:

Tucker Carlson goes off on certain ‘conservatives’ who claim to be free speech enthusiasts only to have their actions speak much louder than their words

“There are a lot of people who are like ‘on your side’ because they’re ‘for free speech’ who are not actually for free speech at all.. Who are pushing a very specific foreign policy agenda for example, and are using another issue to lower your defenses and let themselves into your brain, and I think that’s really sinister”

It’s not hard to imagine who Tucker is talking about here… this situation sound familiar @RealCandaceO?

Speaking of Candace Owens, who recently split from Ben Shapiro’s “Daily Wire” over differing opinions on the Israel/Palestine conflict, she thinks that Ben’s recent attacks on Tucker stem from what she calls a new version of TDS: “Tucker Derangement Syndrome.”

Candace Owens:

Tucker derangement syndrome is real.

“It always appeared to us that, atomic bomb or no atomic bomb, the Japanese were already on the verge of collapse.” -General Henry H. Arnold Commanding General of the U.S. Army Air Forces Under President Truman

“Japan was at the moment seeking some way to surrender with minimum loss of ‘face’. It wasn’t necessary to hit them with that awful thing.”

– General Dwight D. Eisenhower

Needless to say every American has a right to evaluate whether the drastic measure of dropping a nuke on a non-military target in a country that had been on the defense for two years (plus negotiating their surrender) was necessary.

You may ultimately conclude it was or wasn’t not— but your right to think critically and express your views is about as American as it gets.

Will also add here some Christian historical facts: In Nagasaki, the bomb was dropped 300 yards from a Catholic Church— Urakami cathedral. Nagasaki was the epicenter of Japanese Catholicism, home to the second largest cathedral in the East.

Church was in session when the bomb was dropped. Of the approximately 12,000 Christians living there at the time, 8,500 were killed, including several dozen parishioners and two Catholic priests, who were hearing confessions in the cathedral that morning.

Very few military men were killed— the overwhelming majority of victims were women and children.

Ben Shapiro, in his quest to purify the conservative movement, also criticized Tucker for holding different views, questioning evolution, and presenting alternative theories on all sorts of topics. Once again, it seems that differing thoughts and ideas are not welcome in Ben Shapiro’s vision of a newly purified conservative movement. Weeks ago, Ben Shapiro came for Candace Owens because she dared to ask questions. Now he is coming for Tucker Carlson because he dares to ask questions. Do you see a pattern forming here?

Shapiro went on an endless rant over Tucker’s “outlandish” comments, basically dismissing him as a “Q-kook.” Independent journalist and filmmaker Mike Cernovich offers a fascinating take on Ben Shapiro’s relentless critique of Tucker Carlson and his “wild” ideas and theories.

Ben Shapiro isn’t a leader; he’s an opportunist. He doesn’t take risks or venture out with cutting-edge thinking or ideas. Instead, he’s a tried and true establishment figure who shills for the “man,” covertly advancing the regime’s agenda while cleverly undermining the America First movement.

Shapiro consistently finds himself on the wrong side of every issue, from smearing the Covington kids to belittling anyone who questions the Big Pharma “vaccine” push. This is a man so out of touch with the direction of this movement that not even Rand McNally could help him find his way back.
