Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief, Ben Shapiro, last month spoke at University of Southern California (USC). Prior to his arrival, roving reporter/interviewer, Austen Fletcher of Fleccas Talks was on campus amidst the students protesting Shapiro.
He wanted to know what the students were protesting – what they thought of and knew of Shapiro, amongst other things.
To my surprise, some were actually conservative, well read and well-informed. They were there to engage in actual dialogue with anyone who would listen – anyone with an open mind that is. However, the overwhelming majority were just mindless clapping seals, chanting the gibberish they were to told to chant.
One of the more memorable imbecilic chants that Fletcher highlighted was, “Cops and Klan go hand in hand.” Fletcher approached a few of the “chanters” to question them on the logic of the screed. He told them to look around – that there were black cops, Asian cops, Hispanic cops. He asked: “Why would chant that? The cops are here [pointed to them]. Half of them are black.”
