Breitbart’s Shapiro Rips ‘Fascist’ Protesters For Pulling Fire Alarm on His Lecture

Despite apparent efforts to cancel the event, California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) hosted Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro today to deliver a speech. The conservative commentator is known for his unapologetically bombastic way of speaking, and he had plenty to say for protestors who tried to shut him down by pulling the fire alarm.

Shapiro has been hitting CSULA president William Covino ever since he announced on Monday that the commentator’s speech before the Young America’s Foundation was being rescheduled. The rationale at the time was that it would be assigned to a date where speakers with opposing views would participate on campus that day, but Shapiro vowed he would appear as planned.

Shapiro’s arrival was reported by Breitbart to have been greeted by #BlackLivesMatter and student protests, and during his speech, people started to leave when the lights flashed and the alarm bell went off. The alarm was soon confirmed false, and as viewers came back in, Shapiro blasted the school administration for allowing this to happen to his event.

“Where the f*ck is the administration on this campus,” Shapiro asked. ““If this sort of thing happened during classes at this university, the kid that pulled the fire alarm would be off this campus so fast it would make your head spin.”

From there, Shapiro continued with his speech by saying that the left is intolerant of diverse political views and is determined to impress their views upon those who disagree. Eventually, Shapiro made his way back to the protesters by lobbing a few more profanity-laced barbs their way.

“Here’s my message to the bloviating jackasses outside: toughen up you spoiled brat snowflakes if you actually want a better world,” Shapiro said. “We can have an actual conversation if they were up for it…They could have engaged that way, they chose not to.”
