Ben Shapiro is autistic right ?

I don't think he's autistic, but he does remind me of a roommate I had once who was so tightly wound he always seemed on the verge of some kind of violent explosion. Same weird, shouty, rapid-fire speech style, so no one could get a thought or a word in edgewise etc. Roomie was also *very* wedded to his manufactured persona as Great Logical Thinker.

Ben Shapiro is simply one of many right wing influencers whose career is the result of a wealthy patron who said "Go out into the world and spread my message among the masses." In his case the patron thought he was hot looking and intense. I just see someone with no talent or charisma.

He is interesting to watch doing a Q&A with a college audience. He can be funny and usually kind when he could eviscerate people who say incredibly stupid things. He is also very intelligent and rational which gets on the nerves of a lot of people.

If he's so intelligent then why is he on the side of the fascists? Anyone with half a brain can see that these people want to ruin country and lower the standard of living as much as possible. They also refuse to do anything to limit climate change. Sounds like a stupid little bitch to me.

If he's so intelligent, why is he spending his life serving a political program based on rabid anti-semitism? Does he think the Right won't get to the Jews? That they'll just clear the country of the libs and the homos and immigrants and then they'll be satisfied and stop fulminating over imagined enemies?

With his ramblings about gay people, gay marriage, Non-Orthodox Jews, multiculturalism, etc. He's apparently QUITE tortured, as he suffers so many different phobias at once: Islamaphobe, Homophobe, Transphobe, and he's made despicable attacks on fellow Jews.
We don't need Orthodox zealots like him calling the rest of us "Jews in name only". Shapenis is just as meshuggah as Fundamental Christians. I get the sneaking suspicion he may be a closet case himself. "So deep in the closet, he's finding Hanukkah presents".

So this is just another "he disagrees with me so he's stupid" vs "the certainty of his tone convinces me of the certainty of his opinions" thread but regarding this dude's intelligence I've heard him say more than once that he's a logical thinker, that he doesn't believe anything illogical etc. But he's religious! And not just slightly religious for the church friends but hardcore Orthodox religious.
This isn't a cheap shot at religious people, either. I personally know people who are religious AND intelligent.
But logic as the explanation for faith? No. You can be religious or you can claim to only believe things based on logic. You can't do both. Assuming, as a matter of course, that one's own belief in a thing automatically makes belief in that thing logical is actually a dumbass tell.

Shapenis has proven himself good with book learning, not so brilliant when it comes to critical thinking: he views the world only as Black or White. He's been brainwashed at his Orthodox Day School, and his Yeshiva High School. He's disagreeable and distespectful to many who dare debate him.
He doesn't even interpret the Torah properly or adequately according to even some Orthodox Rabbis. He's good at repeating things, shutting down debate, and being very angry with those who may disagree with his "One Truth" mindset. He calls those eho disagree stubborn, stupid, or misinformed.
As a Jew, the entire experience of Jews being excluded by many societies historically is completely lost on him when he fear mongers about immigrants, Feminists, Progressives, Atheists, Muslims, Gays, and Trans people. His picture ought to be featured under the definition of schmuck in every dictionary.

R51, I work in a Jewish institution and work with many Orthodox Jews who know I'm gay. I've always been treated with respect and fairly. I know I will never be invited to their house nor will they come to mine. I used to work with Jehovah Witnesses. They would never invite to me to lunch because I wasn't a JH.
I don't need people's approval. They can have their beliefs and I can have mine. They can have their world and I can have mine. I saw that interview with Dave Rubin, btw. They are still friends and respect each other. They've done a few more interviews since.
