Ben Shapiro to Mizzou: 'Why Are You Still Crying?'
Ben Shapiro to Mizzou: ‘Why Are You Still Crying?’
July 18, 2016
Eight months after his legendary YAF-sponsored lecture at Mizzou, Ben Shapiro is still smacking down whiny leftists. Following radical leftists’s decision to catapult their campus into chaos this fall, Mizzou’s admissions department experienced a decrease of 2,600 applicants in the spring and implemented large staff cuts. Now, tone deaf staffers at Mizzou are using those same protests as a selling point to persuade incoming freshmen and transfer students to accept their offers of admission this fall. Freshman orientation leaders for the 2016-2017 school year created a skit that prospective students attending orientation have to watch. The skit, which was recorded by The College Fix, is being used to justify the protests led by Concerned Students 1950 last fall, with one whiney orientation leader declaring, “If you weren’t here you don’t know what happened.” One freshman orientation leader who participated in the skit said, “We are not crybabies. We are adults who realize that we will face many adversities in our lifetime.” We asked Shapiro for his response to that sentiment. His answer? “If you’re not crybabies, why are you still crying about me calling you crybabies?” After Shapiro crashed these SJW’s safe space in November by delivering a memorable smack down, he toldThe Daily Signal, “I was really hoping that some of the folks on the other side would show up and at least try to debate. They didn’t.” How many more students have to decline their admission offers and how many university staff members have to lose their jobs for these students to realize their refusal to engage with new ideas is the real issue on campus, not “systematic racism”? Their insistence upon producing more tone-deaf celebrations of the protests will lead only to more years of declining admissions. Cry about that.
