Thousands Dead After Ben Shapiro Casually Strolls Through Whole Foods

BOCA RATON, FL — Authorities responded to a level 5 event in Boca Raton Friday after Ben Shapiro casually strolled through a Whole Foods Market, resulting in the death of thousands.

The popular political commentator and founder of The Daily Wire had a “hankering for some peaches” when he stopped by earlier in the day, say survivors who witnessed the horrific event.

“He walked in like it was no big deal — like he wasn’t the Jewish face of white supremacy!” wailed Julia Lacrosse, a 23-year-old twin-spirit dragonkin who had been shopping for her cat. “I could feel it in my bones as I was being triggered. Like he was raping me by just being on the other side of the store!”

According to sources, hundreds in the store that day dropped dead as Shapiro walked by them. Others fled the store in a panic but their escape would be only temporary. Whole Foods was only the epicenter of what turned out to be a massacre along a three-mile radius. Chaos spread down the streets of the once peaceful city. Distracted drivers pancaked into each other, driven by a maddened panic that invaded their hearts. Metal tore through flesh and bone, glass shattered, and there arose a great cry throughout all Boca Raton, such as was not like it before, nor shall be like it again.

Whole Foods has since apologized for the incident with a heartfelt tweet in which they stated, “We are very sorry. Ben Shapiro briefly visited our store to buy some food. Though we do not control his actions, we take full responsibility for the thousands of lives lost.”

The manager of the Whole Foods Market on 15th Avenue has since hung appropriate signage on the building to warn that a triggering event had recently taken place there. Their sanitation rating also dropped to a B.

EconomicPolicyJournal.com: ‘Why I’m Leaving California’

Posted by M. C. on September 20, 2020

What Ben Shapiro says in this clip is on the minds of many CEOs and high-wage earners in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City.

The tax base is leaving the cities thanks to the way wacko lefties running these operations.

Taxpayers will take a lot of abuse but when the threat is moved to directly outside the door despite paying high taxes, the tax base moves.

It is difficult to see how these cities don’t turn into third rate hell holes unless the lefties running these cities are replaced pronto.

On a tangential note, it is interesting that Shapiro has chosen Tennesse. The real number crunchers tend to choose this state. The late financial adviser Harry Browne lived there and Arthur Laffer operates out of Tennessee.  Though Browne and Laffer chose Memphis over Nashville.

In Defense of Tucker Carlson – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on August 19, 2019

The dreams of creating an empire that encompasses the whole world, enforcing “liberal democracy” on the nations, as supported by Bolton and others, lead down a futile path. And whenever a futile path is pursued through enforcing its policies on the globe, it is no longer futile, but suicidal.

Amid rumors that Tucker Carlson may have suddenly been suspended off of Fox News, some are taking this claim even further, predicting that he may be replaced by Ben Shapiro. While these claims have remained only rumors, it is important to not lose sight of the importance of Carlson and his platform. Whether these rumors become reality or not, I fully stand by this defense of Carlson.

Many small government activists, even, have gone as far as to condemn and chastise Carlson for his criticism of Austrian economics. While the claims made by Carlson in this regard are short sighted and unwarranted, many conservatives and libertarians have allowed this to obscure the importance of Carlson. The fact of the matter is that while the Hannitys, Limbaughs, and Levins of the world continuously call for more war in the Middle East and elsewhere, Carlson remains a bold anti-war maverick. And one of very few on Fox News.

Let’s go through some of the various warmongers and neocons that Carlson has exposed on his show. Beginning with one that is prominent in the current administration- John Bolton. In an interview with Bolton last year, before his appointment to national security advisor, Carlson caught Bolton off guard, and began to grill him on whether we should go to war with Iran. “There haven’t been any Iran sponsored terror attacks in this country”, Carlson pointed out, as he proceeded to rightfully connect terror attacks on the U.S. to “Saudi Arabians, the Gulf States, and the Sunni Arab World”. A disgruntled Bolton then proceeded to say that it’s Iran’s “support for terrorism generally, that should concern us- not neccessarily specific attacks on the United States”. Of course, here, Bolton is alluding to the dream of the liberal international order, in which our interests lie in the promotion of “liberal democracy” worldwide.

Carlson then blatantly noted that to commit any number of troops or increase military spending, it would make much more sense to “go after the people who are attacking us here first”. Sidestepping this, Bolton then began to put the blame on North Korea, and their nuclear weapons. Bolton then returned to point out that had Israel bombed Iran 15 years before, we’d be in a much better place now. Carlson then pointed out that regime change in Iraq and Libya turned out to be a disaster, leading Bolton to immediately stop him there. Bolton ended the interview, saying that the analysis of Carlson and like minded non-interventionists, was “simplistic”, his final defense.

On many other occasions, Carlson has pointed out his abhorrence to the idea of war with Iran, grilling Bolton and the war lobby following the recent threat of war with Iran. “How many people will be killed? The most basic of all questions, but a question too rarely asked by leaders contemplating war”, Carlson asserted. Carlson also rebuked a clip where someone on CNN criticized the president for being indecisive on whether to strike Iran, as Trump decided last minute not to follow through with the prospective attack on Iran. Of course, in Washington, being indecisive is a greater sin than killing hundreds in a strike.

Carlson also once faced, perhaps the most crazed of all war mongers, Ralph Peters, who helped lead the anti-Russia hysteria. Peters branded the Russians as “terrorists” who hate the United States, thus it is wrong to seek alliances with them in any ways. To Peters, Putin “is as close to pure evil” as he can think of. Like Bolton, in pursuit of the liberal international order, Peters asserted that “we should be strengthening our alliances with democracies”. When Carlson asked why the Russians constituted a threat to the U.S., Peters compared Carlson to a Hitler apologist, saying “you sound like Charles Lindbergh in 1938 saying Hitler hasn’t attacked us”. Of course, this is a classic move in the neocon playbook. Carlson’s scuffle with Peters is reminiscent of when John McCain called out Ron Paul in a debate for supporting “isolationism”, which “allowed Hitler to come to power”. All Paul was doing was pointing out the failures of the war in Iraq.

University of Chicago political scientist John Mearsheimer notes that “the (liberal international) order contains the seeds of its own destruction”. For if the dream of liberal hegemony, i.e., that the United States can impose its will on the rest of the world, is to prevail, a unipolar world would be needed. This is not so, as China has emerged as a major world power, bringing back “balance of power politics”. But China’s emergence as a major world power was inevitable, Mearsheimer explains, through integrating it into the liberal international order, “making it richer and richer”. Thus the quest to achieve a liberal international order lead back to balance of power politics, making the former a futile endeavor…
