Excerpt from The Daily Wire
Written by Hank Berrien
Daily Wire Editor-In-Chief Ben Shapiro has been speaking out against leftism since he was 16 at UCLA, standing atop the Ackerman building waving a sign reading “merit before diversity,” and writing the book Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth at 20. Now a whole new generation is being influenced by his books and the Ben Shapiro Thug Life videos devoted to his speeches and public debates.
One case in point is Cal State Los Angeles student Mark Kahanding, 20, a finance major at the university and the 2105-2016 chair of its Young Americans for Freedom chapter, who was bullied growing up and as a teenager turned to the writings of Chinese dictator and mass murderer Mao Zedong for comfort. Mao was responsible for executions, imprisonments, forced famines and labor camps that killed an estimated 65 million Chinese.
