You should listen to him. You might change your mind
You don’t have to agree with him, doesn’t make him a smug twat though, it’s a fairly typical response you see nowadays for anyone who dares not be a leftie
Ah come on. This outlook is a bit of a cop out. He DOES come across as a smug twat. I don't even think he'd disagree with that deep down.
On Shapiro himself, he's clearly quite a good debater, he's said himself there are times where he's wrong but his debating skills will win him the argument. If you watch a lot of his stuff though (I've watched a bit lately as he's far more tolerable than some others I'll get to) you notice some big hypocrisies, he'll argue a certain way depending on where it suits . And at times he over simplifies where the details will trip him up but he's hardly the only one. A lot of what I've seen of him is against college students who are just hopeless.
He's in a different league to Milo though, or that Spencer guy. They're two really rotten individuals. My issues with Shapiro are more when he turns a blind eye to stuff instead of actively trying to be a dick.
He's nothing on Jordan Peterson. Who's also an odd dude. But at least self aware. Shapiro I can't help but shake the feeling he's getting his own back for years of being bullied as a kid by showing up at schools and colleges to finally be the cool 'intellectual jock' kid he never got to be.
