Who is Ben Shapiro and why is he so feared and loathed by liberals?

You may know Ben Shapiro as the editor-in-chief of conservative news site, The Daily Wire, or as the controversial political speaker who unapologetically dismantles weak liberal arguments on college campuses nationwide and multiple media outlets. But who was Ben Shapiro before he became the outspoken voice of America’s young conservatives?

Ben joined Glenn Beck for a candid interview on today’s show. “I don’t know if the audience has ever really been introduced to you formally,” said Glenn, adding, “I don’t know what happened to you — I don’t know if you were bitten by a spider or something happened — but you are wicked smart.” Addressing Ben’s early graduation from high school, Glenn asked, “You were 16 years old going to UCLA, what was that like?”

“Well, it was fun, I mean, I hated high school. I was glad to get the hell out of there,” said Ben. “High school was garbage. I was two years younger than everybody else … when you’re 5 foot 2 and like 120 pounds, and smarter than most the kids in your class, and kind of obnoxious, things go real well for you in high school … yeah, going to college was great.”

Here are a few more interesting points discussed in today’s interview:

  • Ben graduated high school at age 16.
  • He graduated from UCLA [summa cum laude, of course] in 2004.
  • At age 17, he became the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in the U.S.
  • Ben has written several bestsellers including: “Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth” (WND Books, May 2004), “Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future” (Regnery, June 2005), and “Project President: Bad Hair and Botox on the Road to the White House” (Thomas Nelson, 2008) and New York Times bestseller “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America” (Simon & Schuster, 2012).
  • He graduated with honors from Harvard Law School in 2007.
  • He started his own legal consulting firm, Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting.
  • He was the editor-at-large at Breitbart until he resigned in March 2016.
  • Ben’s columns have been published numerous newspapers and websites, and he has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows around the country.
  • An Orthodox Jew, Ben has often spoken out against anti-Israel and anti-Semitic movements.
  • Now 34, Ben has been married for ten years and has two children.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

EcoHealth Alliance's Peter Daszak: Hero or Villain? | Matt Ridley | Ep 126

Like most people, science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now? Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the Left practically worshipped Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology. In this episode of the Glenn Beck Podcast, Matt reveals the whole tangled web.

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.
