While the students who debate Ben Shapiro are typically indoctrinated with woke ideology, you have to at least give them some credit for their boldness. It takes some courage to challenge one of the most well-read, articulate men alive. These kinds of Shapiro vs. progressive student debates usually end quickly, as it takes Shapiro mere seconds to dismantle his opponent’s argument.
In this case, a two-word question was all it took to put a pro-Palestinian student to shame.
Dave Rubin plays the clip of the interaction.
“You can't take the benefits [of capitalism] and then reject the downsides; I don't think it works that way,” Shapiro said.
“Thank you, and free Palestine,” the student responded.
“Which part?” Shapiro brilliantly asked.
“I’m not going to comment on that,” the student said.
But she wasn’t going to get off that easily.
“I saw you say 'from ‘the river to the sea,’ so you can just say it out loud,” Shapiro pressed.
“Yeah – from the river to the sea,” she retorted.
“I appreciate the idea that the Jewish state should be wiped completely off the map, with the concomitant loss of life,” Shapiro sarcastically remarked, “but we're worried about climate change and the humanitarian aspects of climate change over the course of the next 100 years – sure, okay.”
“She doesn't know what she's saying,” sighs Dave Rubin, admitting that he sympathizes “with these kids whose brains have been so obliterated.”
“What you want to do is kill 8 million Jews in the Middle East?” he asks. “And you'd probably have to kill about 2 million Arab Israelis who are peacefully living there as well.”
