'He is just such a piece of shit that has made millions ... it drives me f***ing nuts'
Harvard's pride and joy, David Hogg, took to Twitter this week to show the world just how clever he is by announcing, "I'm never planning on having kids. I would much rather own a Porsche and have a Portuguese water dog and golden doodle" because apparently, it's too expensive to "properly raise" children in Biden's new and unimproved America.
The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro took notice of Hogg's strange statement (along with several thousand other skeptics on Twitter) and responded by poking fun at the young gun-control activist's failed pillow company.
\u201cBased on the massive success of your pillow company, I'm going to say that the Porsche may be out of reach. How does a 2004 Kia Optima sound?\u201d— Ben Shapiro (@Ben Shapiro) 1663695876
A very obviously triggered Hogg attempted to play it cool by tweeting something about taking Shapiro "seriously" when he grows up and takes a sex-ed class.
\u201cI\u2019ll take Ben Shapiro seriously when he starts acting like the near 40 year old father he is and not like the 14 year old on 4chan he acts like and takes a basic sex Ed class.\u201d— David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f (@David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f) 1663762375
This ploy might have been more convincing had Hogg not immediately launched into a multi-post, profanity-laced Twitter tirade over how seriously upset Shapiro had managed to make him with his single tweet.
\u201cI\u2019m not so mad that he came after me as I am that he is radicalizing young men into believing they are oppressed by women simply because they can\u2019t get laid. He would do a lot better for the world if he did a video for his followers on how to shower and wash their sheets.\u201d— David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f (@David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f) 1663762375
"Not so mad"? Okay...
\u201cHe is just such a piece of shit that has made millions selling hatred, homophobia, sexism and racism to young men to tell them they\u2019re oppressed it drives me fucking nuts. All he has ever done is project and sell hatred to weak insecure men who can\u2019t get laid.\u201d— David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f (@David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f) 1663762375
Kinda seems like he's mad ....
\u201cIt\u2019s funny to laugh at him because it\u2019s so hard to take what he says seriously but his words have real world consequences. I\u2019m bothered because a lot of what he says sounds a hell of a lot like the mass shooter manifestos I\u2019ve read. (Esp in regards to woman)\u201d— David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f (@David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f) 1663762375
Wait, now he's ranting about all "the mass shooter manifestos" he's read?
\u201cSure- he isn\u2019t necessarily inspiring them but if you\u2019re saying the same things a mass shooter is saying then maybe you shouldn\u2019t be saying those things\u201d— David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f (@David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f) 1663762375
\u201c@davidhogg111 Nothing says "I don't take Ben Shapiro seriously" like writing a whole Twitter essay about how much he triggers you \ud83d\ude02\u201d— David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f (@David Hogg \u262e\ufe0f) 1663762375
She has a point.
Now, if you're wondering what Hogg was talking about when he said Shapiro "has made millions selling hatred, homophobia, sexism and racism to young men to tell them they’re oppressed," the Canadian Broadcasting System put out an article on Monday about "How young men fall into online radicalization," and Shapiro was featured front and center.
\u201cHere comes the media attempt to get me banned from social media. They can't name which views of mine are particularly radical, so they just go for the "I'm radicalizing the youths!" Pathetic garbage from the Canada's public broadcaster. https://t.co/ro90BdWxlR\u201d— Ben Shapiro (@Ben Shapiro) 1663589155
However, even the CBC had to admit that Shapiro is not actually affiliated with any young-men-radicalizing hate groups.
\u201cThey can't actually connect me to hate groups because I'm not actually connected to hate groups, but I have Bad Views\u2122! Those views apparently include "objectification of women," which is a strange charge to level against an Orthodox Jew who promotes virginity until marriage.\u201d— Ben Shapiro (@Ben Shapiro) 1663589155
Shapiro the "radicalizer" recently joined BlazeTV's Dave Rubin on "The Rubin Report" to talk about how society has lost its sense of purpose leading to a "crisis of meaning" in America.
"I think that part of the resistance to ... anyone who's at least searching for meaning is that the left has been saying for a long time that 'we found the meaning.' And the meaning was 'do what you want to do.' The meaning was 'no responsibility' ... the meaning is 'rebelling against the system,' and when it turns out that a lot of people don't find meaning in that, there is, in my perspective, a God-shaped hole in people's hearts that is being filled by hatred and polarization and tribalism," Shapiro told Dave.
Yup, pretty radical, Mister Shapiro.
