Atrocious, hypocritical, devisive garbage
March 20, 2019
If you're familiar with Ben Shapiro, then this book is exactly what you'd expect. Spurious logic bent to fit whatever beliefs Shapiro has, smugly presented in a faux-intellectual way. It's absurd that the following is on the product page:
"America has a God-shaped hole in its heart, argues New York Times bestselling author Ben Shapiro, and we shouldn't fill it with politics and hate."
First of all, it's quite a leap to say that America has a God-shaped hole in its heart. Evangelicals run everything in this country. Second, "we shouldn't fill it with politics and hate" is something I think everyone can agree with, but BEN SHAPIRO is telling us this? Political pundit and liberal-hater Ben Shapiro? The guy who spends all day, every day writing devisively about politics? The guy who can go five minutes without bashing liberals (ie, half the country)? How can someone write that without dying of laughter?
America has a love-shaped hole in its heart, and we shouldn't fil it with the absurdly hateful and devisive rhetoric of people like Ben Shapiro. We should be spending less time listening to political pundits of every stripe and more time listening to and attempting to understand each other. Good gravy, the scourge of these pundits who prey on our fears and ignorance just to turn a buck needs to end.
