Student files bias complaint against dorm roommate for watching Ben Shapiro video

One evening last September, a Michigan State University student awoke from his nap to see his roommate sitting at his computer. There was a video playing, and the student realized his roommate was watching a video of conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

The newly awoken student then took to his own computer to file a complaint with the administration’s bias reporting system against his roommate for watching the Shapiro video.

Student files bias complaint against dorm roommate for watching Ben Shapiro video

Hello A:

That there are easily offended snowflakes isn't the story here... What the university DID about it, IS..

They did NOT empanel a group to study the incident.. They did NOT open an inquiry. They did NOT file charges.. They did NOT call the cops..

They gave the snowflake a room change..

“In response to the complaint, the university tasked an investigator to look into the matter”

You forgot that it was an investigator “who was told to work for a “room change if the claimant would like one.””

Amazing isn't it? Reading the verses of the sword from the Quran, The Art of War, or the Communist Manifesto? No problem. Watching video of a small Jewish boy? The leftist intolerant Big Brother comes out to play...

I watch Ben Shapiro believe it or not. I watch all of the "public intellectuals" you right wingers adore. That's why I can tell when someone is a mindless idiot like Bronto repeating their talking points like a parrot. I don't agree with censoring them, but I do think they are objectively wrong and stupid about a great many things.

"Intellectual" really is stretching it in Shapiro's case. Shapiro is an idiot who was rich enough to go to Harvard. Unfortunately, the right wing is stuffed full of twats like this, but Shapiro is the most public (and also the most annoying).

At least someone like Jordan Peterson has genuine intellectual merit. I just don't see it with Shapiro. He's a moron whose rhetoric revolves entirely around tit-for-tat, with him usually stretching for or exaggerating the tat.

(weasel voice) The left wing is fundamentally immoral, because left wing politics is based on theft and distorting the facts of biology and objective morality. That's why it's impossible to debate a left winger, they can't debate you because there is no objective reality in their self-entitled nihilistic postmodernist cultural marxist moral relativist worldview. That's why they argue with pure feelings based rhetoric, because studies show that liberals are ugly, have low testosterone and are more likely to be indifferent to facts than right wingers. Also all left wingers are anti-semites and everyone who was ever a bad person was a leftist and an atheist. Also there is no such thing as a rich person who is bad unless they are a left winger.

Shut up, you jealous bastard. Shapiro has more intelligence in his little pinky than you have in your entire body. You can call it rhetoric all you like. Doesn't change a thing. Shapiro is a great debater. He knows his facts and has no problem pointing out the lies of his opponents. You cant name one liberal, who debated him, and won.

Awesome. Tell us some of his catch phrases and what the mugs and shirts he sells say on them.

Also they tend to misrepresent the left quite a bit by conflating the stereotypical "college liberal" or social democrat with all left wingers.

True, they don’t speak for all the left wingers. But god help the left winger who disagrees.

Have you ever seen one of these big right wing figures debate a legitimate intellectual who is on the left? They specifically pick out the dumb ones to debate and point to when arguing against the left. Leftism in it's best form is also relatively rare for the same reason that geniuses are less common than average and dumb people, and the establishment left is always a shitty bureaucratic version because the establishment never wants to reduce it's own power. The true, well articulated far left ideas are never shown to you unless you really look for them because they threaten the status quo and cannot be debated honestly given that they are objectively true.

Unless it was at a very high volume and the University stands strongly against Shapiro's politics then I don't see an issue.
