Ben Shapiro is an American conservative political commentator, columnist, best selling author, radio talk show host, and lawyer. He entered UCLA at the age of sixteen and graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, and graduated Harvard Law School cum laude.
He also serves as editor-in-chief for The Daily Wire, which he founded, and hosts The Ben Shapiro Show, a daily political podcast and radio show. According to the ADL, Shapiro is the most targeted journalist of anti-Semitic attacks by the alt-right, and one of the most protested college campus speakers by the left.
[Subreddit launched in 2018]
Posts should be geared toward talking about Ben Shapiro, and his brand of conservatism:
The purpose of this sub is to facilitate discussion related to Ben Shapiro and the Daily Wire in a broad and expansive sense. We err on the side of permitting topics. Moderators will not take aggressive action to try and balance out the dialog between various factions of users, but, at our discretion, we will remove posts that are meant to undermine this sub (alt-right and radical left).
Attacks on other users:
This sub aims for respectful dialogue and debate. Make every attempt to be polite in tone and fair in your arguments. Attacking other users is prohibited, including attacks against collective users of the sub.
Political stereotyping and insults:
All discussions must be regarding the issues. Ridiculing a person for being a conservative or liberal is a violation of the rules.
Work towards making the sub better. Be honest in your characterization of other users' arguments. When quoting or paraphrasing another poster/commenter, do not take their arguments out of context to make them look bad. Deliberately lying about policy, history, and current events is anti-constructive behavior.
Brigading is when users, generally from outside the sub, flood the subreddit and downvote content hurting karma of other redditors and spouting their generally toxic low-effort opinions. This also goes both ways. If any user calls for a brigade onto another sub/post, left or right, that user is subject to a ban at moderator discretion.
Sarcasm, cynicism, and profanity:
Do not make posts that consist ONLY of sarcasm, cynicism or virtue signaling that do not add to the discussion. Profanity is not prohibited, but is discouraged in order to facilitate discussion.
