Breitbart Editor: Culture of Fear Silencing America

Breitbart.com's Ben Shapiro explains how bullying has morphed into the Left's "go-to tactic" to squash opponents through fear, threat of force, and rhetorical intimidation. Read Transcript


Pat: HEY, I'VE GOT A

BOOK HERE BY A GUY NAMED BEN

SHAPIRO.

MAN, HE IS A WONDER KING.

HE IS AMAZING.

HE GRADUATED FROM LAW

SCHOOL, SUMA KUM LAUDI.

AND BEN SHAPIRO IS CARRYING

ON.

AND HE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK

CALLED "BULLYING."

AND BULLYING DOESN'T JUST

MEAN BIG KIDS PICKING ON

LITTLE KIDS.

YOU CAN ALSO FIND BULLYING

IN POLITICS.

YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED TO

FIND OUT WHO SOME OF THOSE

BULLIES ARE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: BULLYING, IN

WASHINGTON, IT IS POLITICS

AS USUAL, WITH SOME OF THE

BIGGEST DEFENDERS BEING

THOSE WHO PROTEST AGAINST

THE PRACTICE THE MOST.

BULLYING HAS MORVE MORPHED

INTO WHAT SOME CALL THE

USUAL.

THAT'S HOW BRIGHT.COM'S

AUTHOR, BEN SHAPIRO SEES

IT.

HE EXPERIENCED FIRSTHAND

WHEN HE RECENTLY CAME OUT

AGAINST THE PRESIDENT'S GUN

BAN PROPOSALS ON THE PIERCE

MORGAN SHOW.

YOU'RE ABSURD, YOU'RE

STUPID.

Reporter: IN HIS NEWEST

BOOK, "BULLIES, HOW THE LEFT

CULTURE OF FEAR AND IN

INTIMIDATION SILENCES THE

MEDIA," HE SAYS BULLIES ARE

PLAYING THE SEX AND RACISM

CARD, ALL THE WHILE CLAIMING

TO BE VICTIMS.

Pat: BEN SHAPIRO IS

JOINING US NOW FROM

WASHINGTON.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

Pat: WHAT DO THESE GUYS

DO ON THE LEFT?

GIVE US A FEW HORROR

STORIES.

EVERY TIME THE LEFT HAS A

POLICY IT WANTS TO PUSH, THE

ONLY WAY IT CAN PUSH THE

POLICY IS BY SUGGESTING THAT

WE ON THE OTHER SIDE ARE

MORALLY DEFICIENT.

THE LATEST EXAMPLES ARE ON

THE SEQUESTRATION, AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA IMPLYING THE

OM REASOONLY REASON WE

WON'T BUY INTO THIS PLAN IS

BECAUSE WE DON'T LIKE POOR

PEOPLE OR TEACHERS.

AND ON GUN CONTROL, STACKING

A BUNCH OF 7-YEAR-OLDS

BEHIND HIM TO MAKE THEPOINT

IF WE JUST LOVED KIDS A

LITTLE MORE, WE WOULD AGREE

WITH HIM ON GUN CONTROL.

IT ALWAYS COMES DOWN TO THE

SAME ARGUMENT.

IF WE DON'T AGREE WITH THE

LIBERAL POINT OF VIEW, IT

COMES DOWN TO THE PROBLEM

THAT WE ARE HORRIBLE

PEOPLE.

Pat: RACISTS,

SEXISTS -- THE THING IS,

THAT RHETORIC HAS WORKED,

HASN'T IT?

YEAH.

Pat: THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE SAY OBAMA CARES ABOUT

ME AND MITT ROMNEY DIDN'T

CARE ABOUT ME.

HE SOLD IT.

AND WHY?

IF YOU LOOK AT THE 2012

ELECTION, THIS IS WHY THEY

LOST.

MITT ROMNEY DEFINED BARACK

OBAMA AS A NICE GUY, A GOOD

FATHER AND FAMILY MAN,

BELIEVED IN THE

CONSTITUTION, JUST NOT VERY

GOOD AT BEING PRESIDENT.

AND THE POLLS REFLECTED

THAT.

BARACK OBAMA PAINTED MITT

ROMNEY AS THE WORST GUY

SINCE STALLIN, HE HAD

BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN

BECAUSE HE DIDN'T LIKE

THEM.

AND MOST AMERICANS GIVEN A

CHOICE BETWEEN A GOOD

GUY/BAD PRESIDENT OR A

HORRIBLE HUMAN BEING WILL

CHOOSE GOOD GUY/BAD

PRESIDENT.

Pat: WHAT ARE THE

REPUBLICANS GOING TO DO TO

FILL THAT GAP.

I THINK THEY HAVE TO STOP

ARGUING POLICY.

CIVILITY IS LIKE THE GENEVA

CONVENTION.

ONCE YOU STEP OUT OF

CIVILITY, YOU HAVE TO

REPLY.

THE PROPER RESPONSE, WHEN

CALLED A RACIST, OH, NO, I

HAVE BLACK FRIENDS.

THE PROPER RESPONSE IS NO,

RACISM IS SOMETHING TO WHICH

YOU DON'T AGREE.

THAT'S SOMETHING THAT

REPUBLICANS NEED TO DO ON A

MORE REGULAR BASIS.

Pat: THAT'S WHAT LITTLE

KIDS ON THE PLAYGROUNDS DO,

YOU'RE A LIAR, NO, YOU'RE A

LIAR.

YOU HAVE TO EXPOSE THEIR

TACTICS.

ALL LIBERALISM IS BADE ON

FLIGHT OF HAND.

THEY DON'T HAVE FACTS OR

EVIDENCE.

THEY ARE ARGUING CHARACTER,

AND WE'RE ARGUING POLICY.

ARGUMENTS ABOUT CHARACTER

WILL ALSO DEFEAT ARGUMENTS

ABOUT POLICY.

WE HAVE TO TAKE IT OFF THE

TABLE.

AND WE HAVE TO MAKE IT CLEAR

TO THE LEFT, IF THEY ARGUE

CHARACTER, WE'LL ARGUE

CHARACTER, AND THEN WE CAN

ACTUALLY GET DOWN TO WHAT IS

BEST FOR THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, AS OPPOSED TO

"YOU'RE A BAD PERSON."

Pat: KIND OF LIKE WHAT

THEY USED TO SAY IN

MASSACHUSETTS, IF YOU WON'T

LIE ABOUT US, WE WON'T TELL

THE TRUTH ABOUT YOU.

DO YOU THINK THE MEDIA IS

GOING TO PLAY THAT?

THEY SEEM COMPLICIT IN THIS

OBAMA THING.

ALTHOUGH NOW THEY'RE

BEGINNING TO QUESTION HIM.

ONCE THEY SHUT THE WHITE

HOUSE TOURS DOWN, HE BROUGHT

CRITICISM ON THEM.

THE MEDIA ARE THE BIGGEST

BULLIES BECAUSE THEY HIDE

BEHIND OBJECTIVITY TO

PRETEND THEY'RE TELLING THE

TRUTH.

THE FACT THAT GEORGE

STEPANOPOULOS IS CONSIDERED

AN OBJECTIVE REPORTER AFTER

BEING IN THE CLINTON

ADMINISTRATION -- THAT'S

ABSURD.

THAT'S WHY HE WAS ASKING

MITT ROMNEY, FOR EXAMPLE,

ABOUT CONTRACEPTIVE LAWS IN

THE STATE.

IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH

ANYTHING, BUT HE WAS

ATTEMPTING TO PUSH OUT THIS

OBAMA TALKING POINT.

THE MEDIA MUST BE DESTROYED

AS IT CURRENTLY STANDS.

NOW THEY'RE SHOWING A LITTLE

SKEPTICISM BECAUSE IT IS

SAFE TO COME OUT.

NOW THAT OBAMA HAS BEEN

RE-ELECTED.

BUT DON'T BE FOOLED, THIS IS

A MEDIA VERY MUCH IN THE

POCKET OF THE DEMOCRATIC

NATIONAL COMMITTEE, AND IT

IS A DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT

CONTROLS THE MEDIA.

Pat: BEN, THANK YOU FOR

YOUR BOOK, "BULLIES."

AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR

INSIGHTS.

I HOPE YOU'RE SUCCESSFUL.

THANKS SO MUCH.

Pat: BEN SHAPIRO,

AMAZING.

AMAZING.

Kristi: I'LL SAY THIS,

PAT, WE DEFINITELY DON'T

KNOW WHERE HE STANDS --

THAT'S SARCASM.

Pat: WERE YOU

BULLIED -- YOU HAD ALL KINDS

OF BAD THINGS HAPPEN?

Kristi: I WAS NEVER

BULLIED, BUT I DID HAVE

EXPERIENCES OF GENUINE

RACISM.

I GOT SPIT ON THE FACE AND

CALLED A NAME.

Pat: SPIT IN THE FACE

IN LIBERAL MASSACHUSETTS?

Kristi: WHEN I WAS

GROWING UP, WE MOVED EVERY

THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE.

MASSACHUSETTS FOR ME WAS THE

PLACE I EXPERIENCED THE

GREATEST BLATENT FORM OF

RACISM.

WHERE IT WASN'T JUST

SH-SH-SH.

IT WAS LET ME TELL YOU WHO

YOU ARE, AND SPAT, IN MY

FACE.

Pat: THEY DID THAT?

YES.

WALKING TO SCHOOL, AND ON

THE SCHOOL BUS, THIS LITTLE

BOY SPIT IN MY FACE AND SAID

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

Pat: IN MASSACHUSETTS?

SHI MASSACHUSETTS.

Pat: AND YOU STAYED

SWEET?

BECAUSE OF JESUS.

Pat: OR YOU WOULD HAVE

HIT HIM IN THE FACE?

YES.

I CRIED.

AND MY MOTHER AND FATHER

TALKED TO ME ABOUT JESUS,

AND WHATEVER NAME SOMEBODY

SAID TO ME, I'M A CHILD OF

GOD.

YOYOU SHRUG IT OFF AND ASK

GOD TO BLESS HIM.

BUT DON'T GET CLOSE.

Pat: MY BOXING COACH

SAID YOU HIT ME IN ONE

CHEEK, YOU TURN THE OTHER

CHEEK.
